Many great reads this month.  I loved The Dog Stars by Peter Heller and The Lost Saints of Tennessee by Amy Franklin Willis.  Both were debut novels.  It's so hard to get published, these days, I'm usually delighted to read a fantastic first novel.  I highly recommend both novels.

Chomp by Carl Hiaasen is a quick read, targeting middle-schoolers.  It's really a wonderful story, for anyone over 10 years old.

Wife 22 is a perfect summer read.  It's an intriguing story of an unhappy wife and how far her husband will go to save their marriage.

I Am Forbidden, was an eye-opener.  Very few novels let outsiders into the insular world of Hasidic Judaism.  Great writing, I learned a lot, I'm sure glad I don't have to live in this world.

Ballistic and Whiplash River are very different novels, but they're both exciting and you won't be sorry you picked them up.
