Whether you love a good haunting, a twisty family past, or just a badass main character, this is the book for you. While Kari's unique identity and personality drive the story, it is the overwhelming, amorphous feeling of fear and unease that will force you to turn pages and examine whether what we believe about the past is required to shape our future. Wurth's voice breathes life into the plight of missing Indigenous women and brings the horror and mystery of so many ignored stories to light. You can't forget this one once you've begun it.

You will NEVER forget this book. It's a gorgeous exploration of love and art. For that musician who doesn't think they like books, the reader who thinks sci-fi is weird, or the person who thinks joy just cannot exist. Guaranteed to turn the shriveled-est miser into a ball of tears and snot. (Perhaps gift tissues as well.)
RIP Paulie Walnuts.
Perfect for Sopranos fans or even that weird friend who just loves mobster movies. (Don't judge. I'm sure they're a good person.)
Imagine a haunted house. Now put it on...a spaceship that disappeared two decades ago. Something dark is going on, and you'll want to leave the lights on for the last 100 pages. (You've been warned.)
For fans of Lucy Foley's The Guest List, this deeply-character-driven mystery will keep you just as sequestered as its cast. It's a joy to read a well-written locked-room story, and Sarah Pearse is another queen of the genre. This is THE gift for someone who likes to stay up late on Christmas Eve reading books.
What if your voice is only valued if its packaging is acceptable? That's exactly what Mecca Jamilah Sullivan explores in this brilliant book. Clear your schedule. It's a single-sitting need-to-read.
