Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

“Set in occupied France during World War II, the novel centers on a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths eventually cross.”

An American Marriage by Tayari Jones

“The novel focuses on the marriage of a middle-class African-American couple, Celestial and Roy, who live in Atlanta, Georgia. Their lives are torn apart when Roy is wrongfully convicted of a rape he did not commit.”

The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson

“The Devil in the White City is divided into four parts, the first three happening in Chicago between 1890 and 1893, while part four of the book takes place in Philadelphia circa 1895. The book interweaves the true tales of Daniel Burnham, the architect behind the 1893 World’s Fair, and H. H. Holmes, a serial killer who lured his victims to their deaths in his elaborately constructed “Murder Castle”.”
