Among the Ten Thousand Things
Jack Shanley is a well-known New York sculptor, while his wife, Deb, ended her career as a ballet dancer to raise their two children, 15-year-old Simon and innocent 11-year-old Kay. They look like a golden couple, but when an anonymous package containing copies of all the emails Jack sent his mistress arrives in the mail, Kay accidentally opens the box first, plunging the entire family into crisis. Told from the alternating perspectives of each of the four family members, Pierpont’s novel is an impressive and heartbreaking debut.
Georgia, Charlie, and Alice each arrive at Harvard with hopeful visions of what their futures will hold. But when fellow classmate Julie Patel is found murdered on campus right before graduation, their beloved teacher, Rufus Storrow—who is rumored to have been a spy--is suspected of the crime. Kirman’s debut is less about the murder (and solving it) than its long-lasting repercussions and the secrets they've kept from one another. A great book club choice for fans of Donna Tartt’s classic, The Secret History (1992).
The bond between sisters runs deep, especially when murder is involved. When Jess, Courtney, and Dani Campbell flee their ranch in western Canada and their abusive, alcoholic father’s vile temper, their truck breaks down in the worst spot imaginable, and with such unwelcome consequences that they must change their names and reinvent themselves—until, years later, one sister disappears (Library Journal). By the author of That Night (2014).
