<b>#1 <i>New York Times</i> Bestseller<br />A Reese Witherspoon x Hello Sunshine Book Club Pick<br /><br />"I can't even express how much I love this book! I didn't want this story to end!"--Reese Witherspoon<br /><br />"Painfully beautiful."--<i>The New York Times Book Review</i><br /><br />"Perfect for fans of Barbara Kingsolver."--<i>Bustle</i></b><br /><br />For years, rumors of the "Marsh Girl" have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life--until the unthinkable happens.<br /><br />Perfect for fans of Barbara Kingsolver and Karen Russell, <i>Where the Crawdads Sing</i> is at once an exquisite ode to the natural world, a heartbreaking coming-of-age story, and a surprising tale of possible murder. Owens reminds us that we are forever shaped by the children we once were, and that we are all subject to the beautiful and violent secrets that nature keeps.

<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER • A gripping novel about the whirlwind rise of an iconic 1970s rock group and their beautiful lead singer, revealing the mystery behind their infamous breakup.</b><br /><br /> <b>“I devoured <i>Daisy Jones & The Six</i> in a day, falling head over heels for it. Daisy and the band captured my heart.”—Reese Witherspoon <b>(Reese’s Book Club x Hello Sunshine book pick)</b><br /></b><br /> <i>Everyone knows DAISY JONES & THE SIX, but nobody knows the reason behind their split at the absolute height of their popularity . . . until now.<br /><br /></i>Daisy is a girl coming of age in L.A. in the late sixties, sneaking into clubs on the Sunset Strip, sleeping with rock stars, and dreaming of singing at the Whisky a Go Go. The sex and drugs are thrilling, but it’s the rock ’n’ roll she loves most. By the time she’s twenty, her voice is getting noticed, and she has the kind of heedless beauty that makes people do crazy things.<br /><br /> Also getting noticed is The Six, a band led by the brooding Billy Dunne. On the eve of their first tour, his girlfriend Camila finds out she’s pregnant, and with the pressure of impending fatherhood and fame, Billy goes a little wild on the road.<br /><br /> Daisy and Billy cross paths when a producer realizes that the key to supercharged success is to put the two together. What happens next will become the stuff of legend.<br /><br /> The making of that legend is chronicled in this riveting and unforgettable novel, written as an oral history of one of the biggest bands of the seventies. Taylor Jenkins Reid is a talented writer who takes her work to a new level with <i>Daisy Jones & The Six, </i>brilliantly capturing a place and time in an utterly distinctive voice.<br /><b><br />Praise for <i>Daisy Jones & The Six</i></b><br /><br />“<i>Daisy Jones & The Six</i> is just plain fun from cover to cover. . . . Her characters feel so vividly real, you’ll wish you could stream their albums, YouTube their concerts, and google their wildest moments to see them for yourself.”<b>—<i>HelloGiggles</i></b><br /><br />“Reid’s wit and gift for telling a perfectly paced story make this one of the most enjoyably readable books of the year.”<b>—<i>Nylon</i></b><br /><br />“Reid delivers a stunning story of sex, drugs, and rock ’n’ roll in the 1960s and ’70s in this expertly wrought novel. Mimicking the style and substance of a tell-all celebrity memoir . . . Reid creates both story line and character gold. The book’s prose is propulsive, original, and often raw.”<b>—<i>Publishers Weekly </i>(starred review)</b>

<b>#1 <i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER AND <b>THE PERFECT HOLIDAY GIFT </b><br /><br />A Reese Witherspoon Book Club Pick<br /><br />“Beautifully written and incredibly funny, <i>Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine</i> is about the importance of friendship and human connection. I fell in love with Eleanor, an eccentric and regimented loner whose life beautifully unfolds after a chance encounter with a stranger; I think you will fall in love, too!” <b>—Reese Witherspoon</b><br /></b><br /><b>No one’s ever told Eleanor that life should be better than fine. </b><br /><br />Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she’s thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy. <br /><br /> But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen on the sidewalk, the three become the kinds of friends who rescue one another from the lives of isolation they have each been living. And it is Raymond’s big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one.<br /><br />Soon to be a major motion picture produced by Reese Witherspoon, <i>Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine</i> is the smart, warm, and uplifting story of an out-of-the-ordinary heroine whose deadpan weirdness and unconscious wit make for an irresistible journey as she realizes. . . <br />  <br /><b> The only way to survive is to open your heart. </b>

<p><strong>“A richly observed novel, both ambitious and welcoming.” -- Meg Wolitzer</strong></p><p>A READ WITH JENNA X TODAY SHOW BOOK CLUB PICK  </p><p>An Instant <em>New York Times B</em>estseller</p><p>NAMED A BEST BOOK OF THE MONTH BY:</p><p>Goodreads • Lithub • Refinery29 • <em>InStyle</em> • HelloGiggles • <em>Real Simple</em> • <em>Parade</em> • PureWow • Apple Books • Bustle</p><p>“It is the strength and fragility of the siblings’ bond, the evolving nature of love that is at the core of Conklin’s novel....Gracefully rendered, <em>The Last Romantics</em> focuses on the familiar theme of family with great originality.” -- <em>Washington Post</em> </p><p>When the renowned poet Fiona Skinner is asked about the inspiration behind her iconic work, <em>The Love Poem</em>, she tells her audience a story about her family and a betrayal that reverberates through time. </p><p>It begins in a big yellow house with a funeral, an iron poker, and a brief variation forever known as the Pause: a free and feral summer in a middle-class Connecticut town. Caught between the predictable life they once led and an uncertain future that stretches before them, the Skinner siblings—fierce Renee, sensitive Caroline, golden boy Joe and watchful Fiona—emerge from the Pause staunchly loyal and deeply connected.  Two decades later, the siblings find themselves once again confronted with a family crisis that tests the strength of these bonds and forces them to question the life choices they’ve made and ask what, exactly, they will do for love.  </p><p>A sweeping yet intimate epic about one American family, <em>The Last Romantics</em> is an unforgettable exploration of the ties that bind us together, the responsibilities we embrace and the duties we resent, and how we can lose—and sometimes rescue—the ones we love. A novel that pierces the heart and lingers in the mind, it is also a beautiful meditation on the power of stories—how they navigate us through difficult times, help us understand the past, and point the way toward our future. <br /></p>
