BJ’s Standout Reads March 2020
If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo This is the story of a teenage transgender girl. She starts a new school where nobody except her dad ever knew her as a boy. But because the school is in the deep south, for obvious reasons she keeps her secret to herself. This book was a fascinating insight into the world of transgender people. It gave me a glimpse into what it’s like to be trans, and how it all works. An awesome read.
Final Girls by Riley Sager Another awesome one by Riley Sager. I am learning you can’t go wrong with Sager. This book is the story of Quincy Carpenter, the sole survivor of a massacre. Her whole life is defined by being a survivor, and the name given to the girl who survives is “Final Girl.” She knows of two other final girls, Lisa and Sam, who both survivied horrific attacks. Lisa ends up dead from suicide, and Sam reaches out to Quincy to comfort her. But is there more to Sam than we think?
Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty A masterpiece by Moriarty! She juggled 9 characters throughout this story of 9 strangers who met at a 2 week wellness resort retreat. Something goes incredibly haywire at the retreat and Moriarty takes us on a wild ride.
