Here are the book picks of the week from Springvale Library staff:

Adult Non-Fiction: Fairest by Meredith Talusan: “…It’s a love story, a queer story, an immigrant story, an American story, a coming-of-age story- a revolutionary story. A most necessary and important book in a world which aims to other us from not just who we are, but who we are meant to become.”  Review

Adult Fiction: The Living Sea of Waking Dreams by Richard Flanagan: “From the acclaimed Booker Prize-winning author comes a dazzling novel of family, love, and love’s disappointments”  Book Cover

Young Adult Fiction: Never After by Melissa De La Cruz: Filomena Jefferson-Cho goes from her hometown where nothing ever happens to being thrust into a world of fairies, and princesses, sorcerers, and slayers, where an evil queen is out to erase the fairy tribes. It’s up to Filomena to save the kingdom. 

Children’s Picture BookMadeline Finn and the Therapy Dog by Lisa Papp: Madeline Finn hopes Star can become a therapy dog. First, he needs to pass his test. Madeline and Star go to a retirement home where Star will take his test. There, they meet several challenges and make some new friends.
