After years of feeling stranded on the bottom rung of the social ladder, Kimi finds that things are finally looking up.

The Devil’s in the Diva: The Four Dorothys; Everyone’s a Critic (Drama!) by Paul Ruditis 📒📔📗

The Devil’s in the Diva: The Four Dorothys; Everyone’s a Critic (Drama!) by Paul Ruditis 📒📔📗

Description:

Bryan Stark describes himself as the “Greek Chorus,” constantly watching the action and drama unfold around him in the arena with the most high school divas possible–the theater! At his posh private school in Malibu, Orion Academy, the teens are entitled, the boys are cute, and the theatre productions extremely elaborate. Bryan sees it all as he directs his best friend Samantha, the most talented of the Orion divas, through the throng. 

This bind-up is filled with friends, theatre, and romance, but underneath it all DRAMA! is a heartfelt comedic series. 

Eve: A Novel by W.M. Paul Young 📔

Eve: A Novel by W.M. Paul Young 

Description:

From the author of the twenty-five-million-copy bestseller The Shack comes a captivating new novel destined to be one of the most talked-about books of the decade. 

Eve is a bold, unprecedented exploration of the Creation narrative, true to the original texts and centuries of scholarship—yet with breathtaking discoveries that challenge traditional beliefs about who we are and how we’re made. Eve opens a refreshing conversation about the equality of men and women within the context of our beginnings, helping us see each other as our Creator does—complete, unique, and not constrained by cultural rules or limitations. 

When a shipping container washes ashore on an island between our world and the next, John the Collector finds a young woman inside—broken, frozen, and barely alive. With the aid of Healers and Scholars, John oversees her recovery and soon discovers that her genetic code connects her to every known race. No one would guess what her survival will mean… 

No one but Eve, Mother of the Living, who calls her “daughter” and invites her to witness the truth about her own story—indeed, the truth about us all. 

As The Shack awakened readers to a personal, non-religious understanding of God, Eve will free us from faulty interpretations that have corrupted human relationships since the Garden of Eden. 

Thoroughly researched and exquisitely written, Eve is a masterpiece that will inspire readers for generations to come.

The Hive by Gill Hornby 

Description:

 “A lively and hilarious tale that’s pure fun. If you loved Bridget Jones’s Diary and you have a child in school, THE HIVE is the book for you.” –Maria Semple, author of Where’d You Go, Bernadette

It’s the start of another school year at St. Ambrose. While the children are busy in the classroom, their mothers are learning sharper lessons. Lessons in friendship. Lessons in betrayal. Lessons in the laws of community, the transience of power…and how to get invited to lunch. 

Beatrice — undisputed queen bee. Ruler, by Divine Right, of all school fundraising, this year, last year, and, surely, for many to come. 

Heather — desperate to volunteer, desperate to be noticed, desperate to belong. 

Georgie — desperate for a cigarette. 

And Rachel — watching them all, keeping her distance. But soon to discover taht the line between amused observer and miserable outcast is a thin one. 

THE HIVE is a wickedly funny and brilliantly observed story about female friendship, power plays, and the joys and perils (well, mainly perils) of trying to do one’s part.
