    Talk to My Back

    Yamada, Murasaki

    "These comics actually came out in the 80's but weren't published in English until this year. Funny but also very emotional and so real, the book focuses on short snippets of the life of a Japanese housewife, focusing on her relationship with her family and the stifiling role that she if foced into.

    The Genesis of Misery

    Yang, Neon

    "Based on the story Joan of Arc. Kinda space opera meets Neon Genesis Evangelion meets gender theory meets Catholicism. You can see a lot of similar elements to Neon Yang's earlier books, but at the same time it's so different. Around 3/4's of the way through I wasn't sure how I was feeling about it or how the last 1/4 was going to go but at the end it all clicked into place." - Eliza

    Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow

    Zevin, Gabrielle

    "Some books are perfect start to finish. Zevin sums up this book as being about Love, Art, Video games, and Time–and that she wrote it with the idea that a good love story can also be a good friendship story. Sadie and Sam meet when they are pre-teens in a hospital in LA where they bond over many hours of Super Mario Bros. They have a falling out and don't meet again until college in Boston where they reconnect over their love of video games and start making them together and taking the world by storm. You don't have to like video games to get hooked by this impressively nuanced, character-driven novel. If you liked Meg Wolitzer's The Interestings or Jennifer Egan's A Visit from the Goon Squad then this is for you. I adored this book." - Misha (So did a lot of other library folks: this was our single most popular title this year!)
