Thanks to bookseller Pete Mock of McIntyre's Books for the wonderful shout-out to WHO IS VERA KELLY? by Rosalie Knecht! "A smart, twisty tale for any lover of the spy genre. Move over Le Carre, Furst, and all others in the male-dominated field, you have company." ?

“I hid the doughnuts in the basement toy chest because the girls are too big for sock puppets and building blocks. Pink box. Glaze flaking overtop, gooed to the box on their bottoms. One cinnamon cake, one cruller, sour cream sug­ared, custard squishing out of chocolate. It‘s not impossible to taste glaze on the finger.”

"In my 20s I was reading passionately and devotedly, and trying to write fiction, but I wasn‘t really connecting the two activities. . . .

"I just finished this amazing book that I‘m becoming a total evangelist for. It‘s not a YA book, but it‘s called Rabbit Cake by Annie Hartnett. It‘s so good.(...) I kind of have a book hangover, like I‘m scared to start anything else because I think it‘s all going to suffer. The voice is so, so good, and the story is so unusual. I hope it gets a whole new audience this summer, because people should be reading it … It‘s special." --Sarah Dessen

"I pretended not to be there on my back in the long grasses, feeling tufts of clover flowers tucking up into the soft backs of my knees. This was when I was younger—maybe ten, even twelve. Those summers, those springs and falls too, I lay amid the weeds with the crickets and hoppy June bugs, forcing myself to keep still though all I wanted was to scratch." --PRETEND WE ARE LOVLEY, by Noley Reid

"The house is so quiet. I start pulling everything out on the counters. The muffin mix. I grab the bowl Ma had for the waffles and her swirly spring whisk, I crack a carton of eggs, being sure to scoop out any bits of shell, and start beating up the batter with one hand. I beat the corn mix, love that scrapey sound of the metal whisk against the clumps of corn and the side of the bowl, love sounding like Ma."
