All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

“Marie-Laure is a young, blind French girl whose father is given the responsibility of transporting a rare diamond, ‘The Sea of Flames,’ away from Paris and the Nazis. Werner Pfennig is a German boy with an aptitude for radios and science. His skill take him into the German army, where he tracks and stops illegal broadcasts. Werner and Marie-Laure’s paths eventually cross, as they both search for meaning in the midst of war.”


To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

“Atticus Finch defends Tom Robinson in the face of prejudice and hate. His daughter Scout forms memorable friendships and learns of the cruelty and generosity of others in this coming-of-age tale. Spend the summer with Scout, Jem, Dill, and Boo Radley in this classic American novel.”


Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

“Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert were expecting a young boy from the orphanage. When Anne Shirley shows up, they don’t quite know what to do. Anne is imaginative, whip-smart, and troublesome. Anne explores the beautiful Avonlea — making lifelong friends, getting into scrapes, and learning about what it means to be part of a family.”


When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi

“When Paul Kalanithi discovered he was dying, he wondered how he should spend his time. Should he write a novel? Finish his medical residency? When Breath Becomes Air explores life, death, and lost time as Kalanithi grapples with a terminal diagnosis and his ending life.”
