Watermark's Book of the Week is If We Were Villains by M. L. Rio.
"This is a rare and extraordinary novel: a vivid rendering of the closed world of a conservatory education, a tender and harrowing exploration of friendship, and a genuinely breathtaking literary thriller. I can’t recommend this book highly enough, and can’t wait to read what M.L. Rio writes next."
—Emily St. John Mandel, New York Times bestselling author of Station Eleven

The Children's Book of the Week this week is Night Witches by Kathryn Lasky.
"Lasky shines when describing the Witches' bombing missions and amplifies the suspense when Valya is shot down behind enemy lines. The daring young women are all dynamically well rounded, particularly Valya, who oscillates between caring for and competing with her sister. Perhaps most thrilling of all is that the Night Witches were a real, all-women regiment, a fact that might encourage young readers to seek out the history of these daredevil heroes." --Booklist

"His mother glides across the flagstone patio slowly, hips and long legs working in time with the music, a kind of undulating dance that reminds Miles of the way tall grass moves just before a thunderstorm."
