Abbey Recommends:

Each story in Sabrina & Corina is a transfixing fire. I couldn't look away.  Rich with perspective of a indigenous Latina heritage and the Coloradan West, these stories are also universal in what it means to be female and part of a family. Here we find arrestingly real girls and women of all ages rising to the occasion. Fleeing violence, braving losses, and binding together; these sisters, daughters, cousins, and mothers return to one another and their ancestry over and over again in a world that is changing around them. Kali Fajardo-Anstine looks back from the world of her grandmothers to today and does not look away from the wounds gentrification or cyclical suppression. Feminine power plays close to the ground in every story: subversive, ever-rising, and triumphant at all the right moments. Beautiful and blazing.

Sarah Recommends:

Reading this book feels like hanging out with your cool aunts and getting advice on all the things you are too afraid to ask your mom about. From the hit podcast My Favorite Murder, Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark are truly innovating the genre of dual memoir. The book is a delight; full of practical, crass and moving stories and advice. For tried and true murderinos (fans of the podcast) and for people who are new to the world of MFM it is hard not to fall in love with (or re-fall in love) with Karen and Georgia. Give this book to yourself, to your best friend, to your cat and your mom. Because it a true pleasure to hang with Karen and Georgia. Hanging out with them is like venting to a friend who always says the right thing.
