Exciting new Fiction @your Library

If you are looking for something different to read, something interesting, maybe offbeat, certainly outside your normal range of reading, you will find many exciting new fiction titles at the Bracebridge Public Library.

Among Others, by Jo Walton, is definitely an out-of-the-ordinary book, defying specific genre labels. The story centres around a young girl, Morwenna, who finds refuge from her difficult domestic life in the world of science fiction. In fact, she will draw on all she has read in these books when faced with the biggest challenge of her life. A blend of fantasy, magical realism, science fiction and reader’s advisory – this is an unusual and compelling read.

Kim Fu was recently interviewed on CBC Radio about her new novel The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore. Set in the Pacific Northwest, five young girls are excited to be at summer camp, setting off on an overnight kayaking trip to a nearby island. But before the night is over, they find themselves facing tragedy. The lasting effects of this experience on these girls as they grow up results in an unforgettable book.

A Catalog of Birds by Laura Harrington has been described as a “heartbreaking journey into the soul of America”. Billy Flynn, an artist with pencil and paint and an affinity for nature, loses all these abilities while serving in Vietnam. Forgiveness and promise for the future mark this excellent novel about family, loss and love.

Winner of the Icelandic Literature Prize, Hotel Silence by Audur Ava Olafsdottir, is the story of one man’s unexpected midlife journey to find happiness despite difficult circumstances. Readers will love the celebration of second chances and unlimited possibilities in life.

There are so many books for various tastes at the Bracebridge Public Library.
