★ The Wangs vs. The World by Jade Chang, selected by guest judge Constance Wu

“The Wang family begins with excessive wealth that is abruptly lost, causing each family member to question the foundation of their identities and trace its roots back to the New Foreign place called China. The Wangs get to explore their essential selves: who we are when we have nothing? This novel is filled with heart, history, and humor. It is a worthy and exciting story.”
-Guest Judge Constance Wu

★ The Mothers by Brit Bennett

“The question I kept asking myself as I read the novel is how free am I from my mother’s choices? How free am I from the choices I made when I was younger and will I ever have to account for them in the future? In The Mothers, the past has the presence of a character—it moves and changes.”
-Judge Morgan Jerkins

★ The Fall Guy by James Lasdun

“As the book’s perspective widens, things start to veer off course, and this is where I started reading really, really fast. The Fall Guy is a deeply psychological novel where much of the action takes place inside the characters’ heads. “
-Judge Steph Opitz

★ Good As Gone by Amy Gentry

“In a world cluttered with lousy thrillers, Amy Gentry’s Good As Gone is a gem—a multi-layered mystery—of kidnapping, and reappearance. Gentry masterfully presents a believable story of a kidnapping and all the complicated factors that go along with it, with the right amount of drama, suspense, and intrigue. It is a beautiful book.”
-Judge Liberty Hardy

★ The Wonder by Emma Donoghue

“At the heart of the novel is the question of faith—religious faith, faith in community, but most importantly, faith in self. The kind of faith that allows you to take that ultimate leap into the future with no guarantee of where you might land. The book had me rooting for miracles. Take the leap, and read this wonder of a book.”
-Judge Nina Sankovitch
