The Beauty of the Moment by Tanaz Bhathena

One of my favorite books of the year so far is The Beauty of the Moment, this book has everything I love all packed up into 320 pages. A love story for the ages, a coming of age story for our time, this book a timely story. Malcolm and Susan are not two kids who […]

Let’s Go Swimming on Doomsday by Natalie C. Anderson
