Watermark's Book of the Week is Do Not Become Alarmed by Maile Meloy.
Using multiple perspectives, Meloy plumbs the nuances of her characters’ relationships to show how quickly everything (and everyone) becomes redefined when the stakes are changed - especially when children are involved. Ultimately it’s a book about race, privilege, guilt, envy, the rewards and stresses of parenting, and the challenges of living up to our own expectations as parents, spouses, and friends.
Online or in the store, Do Not Become Alarmed is 30% off until June 26th.
The Children's Book of the Week this week is Cyclone by Doreen Cronin.
Nora’s whole world plummets faster than the Cyclone roller coaster when her cousin Riley falls into a coma that Nora thinks is her fault in this warm, big-hearted debut middle grade novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Click, Clack, Moo! and other titles.
Online or in the store, Cyclone is 30% off until June 26th.
