JUST ARRIVED  Get philosophical this week with Scott Samuelson’s Seven Ways of Looking at Pointless Suffering, which takes a broad look at misery, or Amy Laura Hall’s Laughing at the Devil, which examines the world through the writings of Julian of Norwich.  Pick up some practical skills with Utility-Style Quilts for Everyday Living by Sharon Holland, Bakeland by Marit Hovland, or Travels with Foxfire, the latest in the long-running series about Appalachian life.  For a heartwarming read, try Another Good Dog, where Cara Sue Achterberg tells the story of the fifty rescued dogs she’s fostered since 2015.  We also have several new books for teens this week.  In The Looking Glass by Janet McNally a girl follows a trail of fairy tales to find her missing sister, while in If Only by Jennifer Gilmore an adopted girl searches for her birth mother and answers to the questions she left behind, and I Am Still Alive by Katie Alice Marshall sees a girl surviving on her own in the deep woods with only a dog for company.  Katie Henry’s Heretics Anonymous is the story of a boy joining a collection of misfits at his new Catholic high school, and in Tom Pollock’s This Story is a Lie a boy is suddenly separated from his mother and his twin sister, finding himself trying to navigate a world of spies where he can’t even trust his own mind.  Finally, Fresh Ink is an anthology of stories by different popular authors, each featuring diverse characters who don’t often get the spotlight.
