An Absolutely Remarkable Thing  by Hank Green

Hank Green

 

Brother of YA sensation John Green had big shoes to fill when publishing his debut novel, but fill them he did! This extraordinary tale follows protagonist April May as she becomes an overnight sensation, and explores the perils and pitfalls of social media. We’re thankful that Hank pulled through with another fantastic offering from the brothers Green, and for a thought-provoking look at the effects of social media!

The Friend  by Sigrid Nunez

 

'The Friend' by Sigrid Nunez

Nunez has just won the much-coveted National Book Award for this heartfelt tale of a woman who loses her best friend, and devotes herself to caring for the friends dog as a sort of catharsis.

It definitely makes us thankful for our friends and loved ones, and, of course, for dogs.
