Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow – I loved this book. It is about people who work in technology, the gaming industry today, relationships of people who think on a different level, about this generation of young adults, and true friendships. Highly recommend

Marigold and Rose – One sitting book. Two twins with different voices making their way into the world
The White Girl – An Australian author writes about a time in the 1960s where how another Government suppresses the Aboriginal people because they do not look or act like the white people in power. We need more books like this.
