Best Books of December 2018

December: 15 books and scripts read

This month's standout was A Heart in a Body in the World by Deb Caletti. Annabelle, a senior in high school, attempting to cope with the emotional aftershocks of a violent event, decides to run from from Seattle to Washington, D.C. A heartbreaking, memorable story about loss, survivor's guilt, and endurance.

A beautiful, non-spoilery quote from the book:

The fury stirs, which means stuff combines with other stuff. A neutron bonks into uranium or plutonium. There's a transformation. A revolution. It can be an explosion that ruins everything, or a beautiful power that can brighten cities.
