By Kathryn Stockett
The Help 
The setting for this uplifting novel is Jackson, Miss., 1962,where black women were trusted to raise white children...
but not to polish the household silver! Skeeter returns
to her community from college, determined to become a
writer. As a social activist, she begins collecting the storiesof the “help”--the black women on whom the country club
set relies, but also mistrust and keep in their places. Toldthrough the perspective of Skeeter and two of the maids-Aibileen and Minny, it is about women of strength and
dignity who carry on and manage to care about othersdespite an unjust system. This is a book you just won’t
want to end---thought provoking, humorous, and unfor-gettable.

Book of the Year
 Constantine sat down next to me, at the kitchen table. I heard the cracking of her 
swollen joints. She pressed her thumb hard in the palm of my hand, something we both knew
meant 
Listen. Listen to me
. “Ever morning, until you dead in the ground, you gone have tomake this decision.” Constantine was so close, I could see the blackness of her gums. “Yougone have to ask yourself,
Am I gone believe what them fools say about me today?
She kept her thumb pressed hard in my hand. I nodded that I understood. I was just smart enough to realize she meant white people. And even though I still felt miserable,
and knew that I was, most likely, ugly, it was the frst time she ever talked to me like I was
something besides my mothers white child. All my life I’d been told what to believe about  politics, coloreds, being a girl. But with Constantine’s thumb pressed in my hand, I realize I actually had a choice in what I could believe.

The Year of the Flood 
A companion piece, if not exactly a sequel, to
Oryx and Crake,
 
The Year of the Flood 
features someoverlapping characters and explores the same terrain (but from a different vantage point). Where
Oryx
focused primarily on science and survival,
Flood 
adds a hefty dose of heart and faith. With the world’s
ecological and sociological framework in decline, a small underground religious movement named God’s
Gardeners takes root. Led by the charismatic leader Adam One, the sect seeks to commune with and
 preserve nature while protesting the scientic abominations of gene-splice technology creating new lifeforms such as the lion/lamb creature and the pigs with human brains. When the waterless “ood” hits, a
plague ravages the city that threatens to eliminate the human race. Two women have survived in isolation.
We see the past through their stories, but each must make the decision of how to move forward in the new
desolate and dangerous landscape. One of Atwood’s major strengths is that even in this hopeless world,her heroines and her readers never lose hope!
Year of the Flood 
is a thought-provoking thriller; serious
literature that is also one heck of a good read.

Little Bee 
by Chris Cleave
 Little Bee is
a refugee novel that evokes the best qualities of 
The Lovely Bones
. Its tragedy is tempered
with humor. Its infectious wit is fortied with depth. It is a thrilling and horric story of how the lives of 
a Nigerian girl and a suburban London couple intersect in wildly unexpected ways.
 Little Bee
radiates
with a vibrancy that you nd in only the very best ction. Don’t miss it.
 –Sara, VP of Book Purchasing, Atlanta, GA
Spooner 
by Pete Dexter
With
Spooner 
Pete Dexter, the author of the National Book Award winning
Paris Trout 
has delivered
a loosely autobiographical retelling of his own life. This is something of a departure for Dexter whose
 books usually deal in visceral themes with an unsparing, uninching eye. Here the approach is humorous
and engaging and though there are moments of violence and risk they are counter balanced by a human
warmth and charm. A ne book by one of my favorite authors.
 –Matt, VP of Book Operations, Los Angeles, CA
The Magicians 
by Lev Grossman
Have you ever loved a book series so much that you used to imagine that it was real and that you couldvisit its world? Did you read it so many times that you had it memorized? Quentin Coldwater fell in lovewith a series of books. Because of them he learned how to do magic tricks. Because of those magic tricks
and his belief in magic, his presence in the world was made known to real magicians and a school called
Brakesbills College, a magical version of Harvard, or an adult version of Hogwarts. When Quentin getsinto this dream college, gets his dream career, he realizes that it wasn’t what he really wanted, but not
until he is corrupted by power, almost beyond repair. It is a very interesting modern story about a boy’s journey to manhood.
