"As expected, from the author of The Night Circus, simply magical. Words feel inadequate to capture the experience of reading this. An entirely immersive experience. second to none." -- Tricia Nocti, Reading Rock, Dickson, TN

9781524717667 Shine 11/5/2019
""Shine on!" is the catchphrase of Piper's favorite astronomer, but Piper feels like she will never shine, especially when her dad's new job moves her to a fancy private school. Piper's story is full of heart, science, and doesn't shy away from figuring out who you are. This book was made for middle schoolers."-- Chelsea Stringfield, Parnassus Books, Nashville, TN

9780525538110 On Swift Horses 11/5/2019
"In this mesmerizing debut novel, Shannon Pufahl uses a delicate stroke to paint a vast picture of the 1950s American West through the eyes of Muriel and Julius, two loners connected by an unspoken truth that lingers in the air like dust. They are both filled with a fierce tenacity; Muriel's flame is reserved, slow-burning, while Julius' is rambunctious and wide-spreading. But both are fires, manifesting at their own pace... Written with a piercing beauty and subtle grit, Pufahl has achieved a marvelous feat of lyrical prowess that gives an explosive voice to the quiet queerness of an already often-forgotten time in history. This book left me absolutely breathless from beginning to end. " -- Gage Tarlton, Flyleaf Books, Chapel Hill, NC

9781335929099 Every Other Weekend 1/7/2020
"Adam's life has fallen apart. His oldest brother died a few years ago and his parents are still falling apart. His dad has moved away to a run down apartment building that he's rehabbing for free rent. Adam and his other brother come visit him every other weekend, bit Adam isn't happy about it. Until he meets Jolene. She's there in a similar arrangement to visit her dad every other weekend. But she has a host of problems of her own. Every Other Weekend has SO much emotion and heart. The "insults" between Adam and Jolene were absolutely perfect. This one had me alternately in tears and laughing. Absolutely recommend this one. -- Jennifer Jones, Bookmiser, Roswell, GA
