SUMMONING THE DEAD was only the first mistake Alex made—things got a lot worse after that. Sharp, evocative horror novel has a powerful sense of place and of the terrors of suffocating slowly in dead-end towns. B PLUS

THE GREAT MIAMI NOVEL may well be this devastating blend of satire, magical realism, and local history—the story of a wannabe gangster and the imprisoned orca that fascinates him. Startling, distinctive, surreal. A MINUS

HIGH-INTENSITY FANTASY THRILLER recasts werewolf myths through a lens of female empowerment, and the result is a heist adventure led by two unforgettable young women/wolves. Sharp writing and evocations of hardscrabble backwoods life. A MINUS

Dear #writers
I'm begging you, please just talk to a behavioral scientist/psychologist before publishing. Or read a textbook. Read Wikipedia. Anything.

"Psychotic" doesn't mean what you think it does. No, that's not why therapy works. Your armchair theories about mental illnesses and substance use need to be updated or scrapped altogether. Freud's theories were never any good and haven't been relevant for decades.

While I'm here: you also might not know what "bemused" means, and even if you do, please limit its use to perhaps twice in one book.

Surrey, B.C.'s biggest school district, drops 4 books from recommended school reading list.

Teachers can still use the four books, she said, but within the school district's guidelines that also call for the teaching of the historical and social context of the #Literature.
*How do we define/identify #ClassicLiterature?

#Harper Lee’s #PulitzerPrize-winning #ToKillAMockingbird, along with #JohnSteinbeck's #OfMiceAndMen, and #ShermanAlexie's #TheAbsolutelyTrueDiaryofAPartTimeIndian have been dropped from #SurreyBC's #SchoolCurriculum #Books #Novels
