“Hover” by Anne A. Wilson.  Adult Fiction.  From the publisher: “Helicopter pilot Lieutenant Sara Denning joins a Navy battle group with little fanfare  –  and that’s just the way she likes it.  Sara’s philosophy is simple  –  blend in, be competent, and, above all, never do anything to stand out as a woman in a man’s world.  Somewhere along the way, Sara lost herself  – her feminine, easygoing soul is now buried under so many defensive layers, she can’t reach it anymore…”

“Hyacinth Girls” by Lauren Frankel.  Adult Fiction.  From the publisher: “A stunning debut about a young teenager on the brink and a parent desperate to find the truth before it’s too late.  This raw and beautiful story about the intensity of adolescent emotions and the complex identity of a teenage girl looks unflinchingly at how cruelty exists in all of us, and how our worst impulses can estrange us from ourselves – or even save us.”
