    Book: Boston Girl by Anita Diamant

    Recommended by: Karen

    The story begins when Addie's twenty-two-year-old granddaughter asks "How did you get to be the woman you are today?" And 85-year-old Addie tells her story beginning in 1915 - the year she joined the library group for girls at a Boston neighborhood settlement house. Thus begins the coming of age story of a young Jewish woman growing up in the North End of Boston in the early twentieth century.

    A great read! It made me wonder how I got to be the person I am today.

    Book: A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman

    Recommended by: Karen

    A charming first novel filled with quirky characters going about their everyday lives. Simple, yet refreshingly honest with touches of humor, this book kept me wondering what would happen next.
