Agnieszka is 17 when she is taken from her family to live in the tower with the Dragon -- a move that everyone knows will change her forever. This engrossing fairy tale explores relationships both personal and national, and their complicating motivations. A great YA novel for adults!

A Girl Named Zippy by Haven Kimmel

A Girl Named Zippy is a wonderful memoir about a quirky girl growing up in a small, Midwestern town. This book is incredibly funny, with a wonderful cast of characters including a beloved pet chicken, multitudes of animals, bizarre neighbors and her wonderful oddball family. Fans of Jenny Lawson's Lets Pretend This Never Happened and Ruth Reichel's Tender at the bone will be delighted by A Girl Named Zippy.
