Every week at MSM Library we provide you with a list of our latest new fiction. For the first time, this list is available to you here at “Between the Pages.” As you can see, it covers a wide range of genres. As a student of MSM you can email us at email@example.com if you want to place a hold on any of these titles, or you can visit us in person, to borrow out the title of your choice.
Our first Staff pick from this week’s offerings is Dorothy must die by D M Paige. Not since Wicked by Gregory Maguire has there been such a wonderful take on the Wizard of OZ. Amy Gumm takes us on a journey into an OZ that is at once familiar and strangely twisted. She finds herself questioning all her assumptions about who is good and who is evil. Amy becomes convinced Dorothy must die!
Our second choice, Al Capone does my shirts is told from the perspective of Moose, a boy whose father has become a prison guard at Alcatraz where they send the worst villains. He lives on the island with his family, including a little sister called Natalie who struggles with autism. It all spells trouble in a story that will make you laugh and cry. You may also like learning about life in 1930’s America during the Great Depression.
