In This Issue

This week, we review Becky Albertalli's sixth solo novel, Imogen, Obviously, "a sparkling romance and a moving account of a young woman's bisexual awakening"; along with two nonfiction works about strong women, First Lady of World War II by Shannon McKenna Schmidt, which "captivatingly captures" Eleanor Roosevelt's five-week tour of the South Pacific war zone in 1943; and Anna Bogutskaya's "nutrient-rich and delicious exploration" of film and TV's Unlikeable Female Characters. Plus so many more!

In The Writer's Life, Sara Herchenroether discusses the way she grappled with the word "survivor" and how that led to her first novel, The Night Flowers.
