Manhattan Beach
Jennifer Egan

Pulitzer prize winning author of A Visit from the Goon Squad, Jennifer Egan has penned her first historical novel and it is spectacular. Set in NYC during WWII, Anna works at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, where women are allowed to hold jobs that had previously only belonged to men. She becomes the first female diver, responsible for welding the war ships. This relatively unknown snapshot of history is made even more fascinating by Egan’s attention to detail and research. With the pace of a noir thriller, this easy-to-read novel is both mesmerising and immensely satisfying.

Nevermoor
Jessica Townsend

Mischa says: Nevermoor is a ‘wundrous’ and magical adventure that had me entangled in its charm from the very first page. Through Morrigan Crow, the feisty and intelligent female protagonist, the language of this new fantasy world is brought to life in the most delightful of ways.

Amelia says: I am not prone to hyperbole, nor do I pay much attention to publisher hype – and as you can imagine, the Harry Potter comparison is oft-used and has little impact these days. Nevermoor is definitely one of, if not the most worthy case for such a claim.

Sylvia says: Think Dahl, think Rowling, think an un-put-downable adventure about Morrigan Crow, a cursed girl with an incredible talent of potentially life-changing proportions – if only she knew what it was. Funny, creative and an absolute treat from start to finish; I’m ready for the next one.
