Need a new read? This week’s best new books include mystery and intrigue with a psychological twist.
A YA mystery full of intrigue and suspense. Told from the point of view of three teenagers—Wink, the eccentric girl with the wild hair, Poppy, the beautiful bully, and Midnight, the boy between them—you can’t help but wonder who is telling the truth. Just when you think you know the answer, the story turns in yet another unexpected direction.
As you may know by now, we were big fans of the Gwyneth Paltrow movie Sliding Doors in the late 90s. There’s something appealing about the idea of living a parallel life. In The Bookseller, Kitty Miller is an unconventional woman living in the 1960s. She’s single and runs a bookshop with her best friend. But when she regularly begins to have very vivid dreams of her perfect life—madly in love with her husband and children—Kitty wonders how to make this her reality?
This psychological thriller is every parents’ worst nightmare. Three-year-old Sophia disappears from the playground only to return 40 minutes later. Her distraught parents discover a small puncture mark on her arm but tests show no damage. Their attempts to return life to normal are upended when Sophia disappears again—and they find themselves under a cloud of suspicion. Determined to find Sophia, they discover that the entire family is a target and someone will do anything to destroy them.
