Sarah

Sarah is one of the store's three co-owners, along with Kelly and Paul. She loves football, nine-ball, and the beauty of the buckyball. Sarah likes anything edgy and/or funny YA-- John Green, Amy Ryan, etc.

She also likes vaguely intellectual fiction-- Selected Works of TS Spivet, etc.

She also asks a good question: It's rather hard to explain why Willa Cather and Tom Robbins sit side by side on my pick shelf.  Is there a genre for that?

This tale of two young women in England during World War II is nothing short of amazing. I read it at the suggestion of one of my coworkers and now I am among the converted. It will make you laugh and cry. --Sarah

This book is shelved in our fiction section but it is a bit of a mystery, a bit of a fairy tale, a bit of anthropology, a bit of sci-fi, and a whole lot of wonderful. It is creative and intense and one of those books that I try to get everyone to read because it is so darn good. --Sarah

What a wonderfully creepy engaging book! Rhine is 16, which makes her only four years away from death. She is chosen to be a wife, along with two other girls/women, to a high-ranking society official. I can't say too much about it but you must read it. (And not like you're supposed to judge a book by its cover, but this is a gorgeous cover!) --Sarah
