Nomadland: [surviving America in the Twenty-first Century]

Nomadland: [surviving America in the Twenty-first Century]
Bruder, Jessica

From the beet fields of North Dakota to the National Forest campgrounds of California to Amazon's CamperForce program in Texas, employers have discovered a new, low-cost labor pool, made up largely of transient older Americans. Finding that social security comes up short, often underwater on mortgages, these invisible casualties of the Great Recession have taken to the road by the tens of thousands in late-model RVs, travel trailers, and vans, forming a growing community of nomads: migrant laborers who call themselves 'workampers.' On frequently traveled routes between seasonal jobs, Jessica Bruder meets people from all walks of life: a former professor, a McDonald's vice president, a minister, a college administrator, and a motorcycle cop, among many others; including her irrepressible protagonist, a onetime cocktail waitress, Home Depot clerk, and general contractor named Linda May.

The Mirror Sisters: [a Novel]

The Mirror Sisters: [a Novel]
Andrews, V. C.

As identical twins, their mother insists that everything about them be identical: their clothes, their toys, their friends, the number of letters in their names, Haylee Blossom Fitzgerald and Kaylee Blossom Fitzgerald. If one gets a hug, the other must, too. If one gets punished, the other must be, too. Homeschooled at an early age, when the girls attend a real high school they find little ways to highlight the differences between them. But when Haylee runs headfirst into the dating scene, both sisters are thrust into a world their mother never prepared them for, causing one twin to pursue the ultimate independence. The one difference between the two girls may spell the difference between life and a fate worse than death.

By the Pricking of My Thumbs

By the Pricking of My Thumbs
Christie, Agatha, 1890-1976

When Tommy and Tuppence visit an elderly aunt in her gothic nursing home, they think nothing of her mistrust of the doctors; after all, Ada was a very difficult old lady. But when Mrs Lockett mentions a poisoned mushroom stew and Mrs Lancaster talks about 'something behind the fireplace', Tommy and Tuppence find themselves caught up in an unexpected adventure involving a strange inheritance, a missing tombstone - and almost death for the redoubtable Tuppence.

Future Home of the Living God: A Novel

Future Home of the Living God: A Novel
Erdrich, Louise

The world as people know it is ending. Evolution has reversed itself, affecting every living creature on earth. Science cannot stop the world from running backwards, as woman after woman gives birth to infants that appear to be primitive species of humans. Thirty-two-year-old Cedar Hawk Songmaker, adopted daughter of a pair of big-hearted, open-minded Minneapolis liberals, is as disturbed and uncertain as the rest of America around her. But for Cedar, this change is profound and deeply personal. She is four months pregnant. Though she wants to tell the adoptive parents who raised her from infancy, Cedar first feels compelled to find her birth mother, Mary Potts, an Ojibwe living on the reservation, to understand both her and her baby's origins. As Cedar goes back to her own biological beginnings, society around her begins to disintegrate, fueled by a swelling panic about the end of humanity.

One, Two, Buckle My Shoe

One, Two, Buckle My Shoe
Christie, Agatha, 1890-1976

What reason would an amiable dentist like Dr. Morely have for committing suicide? He didn't have emotional difficulties, money problems, or love trouble. What he did have was an appointment with Hercule Poirot, who is not persuaded by the suicide story and has therefore taken it upon himself to questions the good doctor's patients, partners, and friends. All he's come up with is the numbing fear that Dr. Morely wasn't an unlikely victim at all.
