A culture and gender study encompassing far more than just its subject country of Afghanistan, "The Underground Girls of Kabul" is investigative journalism at its finest. Jenny Nordberg, who first broke the story to the New York Times in 2012, provides a visceral narrative of the lives of several bacha posh-Dari for "dressed up as a boy. These girls spend their childhoods, and sometimes longer, presenting as male in order to gain the freedoms that would be otherwise unavailable to them because of their gender. In this deeply personal account, a mother, a doctor, a parliamentarian, a police officer, and several young girls give voice to a generation poised for radical social change. --Emily

My advice: start reading and don't let up or even think about what you're reading until you've finished this book. I guarantee you will be challenged on so many levels because these are pretty awful people doing some pretty awful things. Yet, this is a must read in the same way that Koch's bestseller The Dinner was so widely admired and praised. There is a unique European sensibility to Koch's writing and he definitely takes us outside our comfort zone. His story of a family's summer holiday is filled with tension and dread from the beginning. You will be disturbed and shocked, but that is the point of literature sometimes, isn’t it?

Think Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch and Dennis Lehane's Patrick Kenzie solving a cold case and you have the premise of this book. This is lots of fun and combines all my favorites: mysteries, short stories and something different. Loved it.

I savored every word of Nesbo's new thriller The Son. If I had my way, he would write a new book every week or so to satisfy my obsession. For me, there is no one else like him. Nesbo is always exciting and thought-provoking. Here he tells the story of a young drug addict who manages to escape from prison. While on the run, what he discovers about his early life, prompts a vengeful killing spree. Nesbo is the master of twists and turns and his disgust with issues such as social inequality and police corruption are fully on display here. With a shocking ending, even by Nesbo's standards, you will be richly rewarded by this book.

A blind French girl. An orphaned German boy. A relentless Nazi soldier searching for a rare gem... these are only 3 of the beautifully developed, yet imperfect characters in Anthony Doerr’s WWII historical fiction novel. All the Light We Cannot See has such an emotional depth that weaves simultaneous stories together into a true masterpiece. If you’re a fan, it’s a bit reminiscent of Sarah’s Key. One of the many things I loved about this book is that it’s not your typical WWII story. Doerr explores human nature and the inner horror of some difficult choices.
