The Books Briefing: Reassessing the Back-to-School Reading List

"Debates about the inclusion in school curricula of modern LGBTQ novels such as #TheMiseducationofCameronPost; radical, diverse stories by 18th- and 19th-century women authors such as Catharine Sedgwick; and formerly “banned” books such as To Kill a Mockingbird and the Harry Potter series continue to rage, with very little consensus on what is and is not “appropriate” for young readers." -- The Atlantic

In one of the many brisk, readable chapters of Summer Brennan’s new book High Heel, she points out that a high heel shoe is a symbol of femininity—if the door of a public restroom has a picture of a high heel shoe on it, it would signify that it’s a women’s room. When people use the phrase ....

Grievous

Friday afternoon is the perfect time to treat yourself to this excerpt from Heather Cross's forthcoming novel GRIEVOUS.

"beautifully written, a tour de force of psychological insight into its richly realized characters, and an extraordinary exercise in mood, tone, and characterization. It is not to be missed." —Michael Cart, Booklist (STARRED review)

"Cross is a good writer who draws on a Kipling-esque nostalgia in her entertainingly peculiar picture of the public school as crucible for young male Brits." —Kirkus Reviews (STARRED review)

Read an excerpt from H. S. Cross' new book Grievous.
