Published: Little Brown and Company - October 4th, 2016

My expectations were very high after reading and rereading and loving Maria Semple's Where'd You Go, Bernadette and this seriously funny and seriously smart follow-up totally lived up to my expectations. This is one of my favorite books of the year. Top five, for sure. I loved every minute I got to follow around the narrator, Eleanor Flood. And just when I thought I knew what was going to happen—BAM—the unexpected. [Kenny]

A bizarre, wonderful novel that makes me want to eat chiles. Both poignant and hilarious, the excerpts from manuals the government put out to subjugate women are morbidly funny. Plus I would totally join a religious cult devoted to capsaicin. Feminist speculative fiction at its best. [sweet pea]

I don’t understand you humans love of B-13 and N-37, when you could be calling for a Maine Coon, a Siamese, or a Scottish Fold. Bingo was his name-o isn’t a dog, but a cat. Play the real game with this beautiful, true game of competitive wonderment. [Atticus]

These dishes are so hearty and varied that I did not realize they are all vegetarian. I cook every single day and one pan versions of old and new favorites are a delight. Every recipe includes ideas for additional ingredients or sides to make it extra filling (or to feed an extra diner). Tasty scratch cooking. [Raissa]

Carson Ellis has illustrated a few of my favorite books so I always take notice when she does something new. In this beautiful picture book she has created an entire bug language that you and your child can translate together. Not knowing exactly what the bugs are saying makes it the job of our imaginations to fully realize this wonderful story. [Kenny!]

We’re loveable, we’re fun...and we’re all a little bit weird. I may like lounging on people’s shoulders like a scarf, but my fellow cats have been caught rocking out to goth metal and eating big bags of Cheetos. Ha! Haven’t caught me yet! [Atticus]
