“After an extended work crunch I binged on fiction, starting with Matthew Specktor’s American Dream Machine. With wit and precision, he draws two generations of Hollywood insiders. Caroline Leavitt’s Is This Tomorrow is a page-turning heartbreaker about an 11-year-old son of a dad who bailed on the marriage, making him and his mom outcasts in the 1960s. The story takes off when his best friend goes missing. The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls by Anton DiSclafani was a natural for a woman who rode back roads in St. Pete as a kid — in fact, for anyone who loves horses and gossip. Set in Florida, it’s about a girl sent to a North Carolina camp for doing something unspeakable.”

Kit Reed, author of The Story Until Now
