Atlantia by Ally Condie


Set within a civilization that lives deep beneath the sea, twin sisters Rio and Bay, are about to make the most important decision of their lives.

Liars, Inc. by Paula Stokes


A dark and twisted psychological tale which Kirkus Reviews called “captivating to the very end” in a starred review. Liars, Inc. is perfect for fans of I Hunt Killers and Gone Girl.





The Confidence Game by Maria Konnikova


The Confidence Game is a startling and disconcerting read that will make you think twice every time a friend of a friend offers you the opportunity of a lifetime.

The book asks not only why we believe con artists, but also examines the very act of believing and how our sense of truth can be manipulated by those around us.




Where She Went by Gayle Forman


The highly anticipated sequel to the New York Times bestselling and critically ac-claimed If I Stay picks up several years after the dramatic conclusion of the first novel. Where She Went continues the story of Adam and Mia, from Adam’s point of view. When their respective paths put them both in New York City at the same time, the result is a single night in which the two reunite—with wholly satisfying results.



The Autobiography of Malcolm X by Malcolm X and Alex Haley


One of Time’s ten most important non-fiction books of the twentieth century, The Autobiography of Malcolm X defines American culture and the African American struggle for social and economic equality that has now become a battle for survival.





There is a God by Antony Flew and Roy Abraham Varg


In There Is a God, one of the world’s pre-eminent atheists discloses how his commitment to “follow the argument wherever it leads” led him to a belief in God as Creator. This is a compelling and refreshingly open-minded argument that will forever change the atheism debate.




Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell


Malcolm Gladwell argues that the true story of success is very different than what we think, and that if we want to understand how some people thrive, we should spend more time looking around them—at such things as their family, their birthplace, or even their birth date. And in revealing that hidden logic, Gladwell presents a fascinating and provocative blueprint for making the most of human potential.



Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell


Set over the course of one school year in 1986, this is the story of two star-crossed misfits—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. When Eleanor meets Park, you’ll remember your own first love—and just how hard it pulled you under.
