Circulation assistant Mochi Fong recommends Dear Edward by Ann Napolitano. Dear Edward tells the story of a 12 year old boy who is the sole survivor of a plane crash and how he deals with the struggle to go on without his family. You feel the weight of his loss and sadness in the beginning but by the end you also feel his hope and triumph in finding a path to move past his tragedy and forward in his life.


Reference librarian Liz Miller-Boose recommends the Tess Monaghan series by Laura Lippman, starting with Baltimore Blues. Tess is a former journalist for a Baltimore newspaper who falls into a private investigator job to help a friend, and finds she is pretty good at it. Not too gory, interesting characters, and a good mystery in each novel all combine to make this a great quarantine series. The series is available on Hoopla
