Lethal Tides: Mary Sears and the Marine Scientists Who Helped Win World War II

This audiobook, recounting the tremendous accomplishments of women working in unaccommodating and unappreciative environments, should appeal to readers of women’s studies and history. Share with fans of Beverly Weintraub’s Wings of Gold or Liza Mundy’s Code Girls.

Black Mouth

This horrific tale will appeal to readers who appreciate coming-of-age stories, found families, sibling relationships, and childhood friends reuniting as adults to defeat a villain from their youth. Share with fans of Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, and Peter Straub.
