    I absolutely loved Emily St. John Mandel’s Station Eleven when it came out, and I have been waiting not-so-patiently for the release of her new work. I’m reading it right now and finding it compelling, eerie, atmospheric, and transportive!

    Poet, professor, and novelist Quan Barry dives into her own adolescent years to bring us a novel chock full of female friendships and rivalries, 1980s pop culture, and witchcraft. Need I say more? Quan guest-starred on Read It Forward’s The Adaptables podcast, and you can basically hear my head exploding when she told us her new novel was about the 1989 Danvers, Massachusetts High School field hockey team tapping into their town’s history as the site of the 1692 Salem witch trials to give the team the extra oomph they need in their quest to reach the state finals.
