Two really interesting new novels came my way last week.
Blackthorn by Judy Nedry. Described as a "gothic thriller," this moody mystery set in a crumbling old resort in the Pacific Northwest has everything going for it.
Yeshiva Girl by Rachel Mankowitz. This is a timely story of a teacher accused of sexual impropriety with a student. What makes this book stand out is that the story is told by the man's 15 year old daughter -- and she believes the accusations.
