For the month of August, in the lead up to the return of our bookclubs in September, we are going to suggested a couple of books a week that you might not normally pick up while browsing our shelves.
The sixth book we want to suggest is:
Girls Burn Brighter by Shobha Rao
A searing, electrifying debut novel set in India and America, about a once-in-a-lifetime friendship between two girls who are driven apart but never stop trying to find one another again. In breathtaking prose, Shobha Rao tackles the most urgent issues facing women today: domestic abuse, human trafficking, immigration, and feminism. At once a propulsive page-turner and a heart-wrenching meditation on friendship.
