All the Single Ladies: Unmarried Women and the Rise of an Independent Nation
Rebecca Traister
The Midwife's Apprentice - Karen Cushman I really enjoyed the economy of language here. One of my favorite things about the juvenile/ya genre is that there used to be a pressure against wordiness. Not sure that holds to the same degree it once did, but in any case, this is a terrific example of telling an absorbing story in a few pages without dumbing down, talking down, or otherwise diluting either tale or the history in which it is set.
