Faced with death and deception, Sarat is befriended by a mysterious functionary, under whose influence she is turned into a deadly instrument of war. Her decisions have far-reaching consequences, rippling through generations of strangers and kin alike.
The Impossible Fortress by Jason Rekulak – It’s the 1980s, and fourteen-year-old Billy Marvin is a straight-up happy nerd. Afternoons are spent with his buddies, doing various pre-internet 80’s things, like debating who would win in a brawl (Rocky Balboa or Freddy Krueger? Bruce Springsteen or Billy Joel? Magnum P.I. Or T.J. Hooker?), and programming video games on his Commodore 64. Then Playboy magazine publishes photos of Wheel of Fortune hostess Vanna White, Billy meets expert programmer Mary Zelinsky, and his life is forever changed.
Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann – (Release date: April 18) In the 1920s, the richest people in the world were members of the Osage Indian nation in Oklahoma after oil was discovered beneath their land. Then, one by one, they began to be killed off. The family of an Osage woman, Mollie Burkhart, became a prime target – her relatives were shot and poisoned and more and more members of the tribe began to die under mysterious circumstances. In this last remnant of the Wild West many of those who dared to investigate the killings found themselves murdered as well. These mysterious murders became the FBI’s first major homicide investigation and the bureau badly messed up the case. A young J. Edgar Hoover joins with the Osage to expose one of the most chilling conspiracies in American history. Author David Grann revisits the shocking series of crimes in which dozens of people were murdered in cold blood. Based on years of research and startling new evidence, each step in the investigation reveals a series of sinister secrets and reversals that result in a compelling and devastating read. Attention history buffs, this one’s for you!
One Day We’ll All Be Dead and None of This Will Matter by Scaachi Koul – (Release date: May 2) Using humor and sharp wit, Scaachi Koul shares memorable moments of her life. Whether it’s a shopping mishaps, awkward interactions with her bikini waxer or overcoming her fear of flying, she shares personal stories and the perspective of life as a woman of color; from her appearance being up for public criticism to navigating gender rules in Western and Indian culture, she finds the world has left little room for a woman focused on things other than marriage and children.
Startup by Doree Shafrir – (Release date: April 25) A former BuzzFeed writer, Doree Shafrir has a unique perspective on what it takes to follow your dream in the modern media world – and the challenges, heartbreak, and triumphs that go along with it. Startup follows several characters who have lofty goals and are trying to reach them. From a tech startup seeking investors to an ambitious journalist at a gossipy tech blog, the characters are so real they may be inspired by Doree’s real life relationships.
