The Only True Genius In The Family – Jennie Nash “Though she lives in the shadow of her legendary landscape photographer father, and is the mother of a painter whose career is about to take off, Claire has carved out a practical existence as a commercial photographer.

Her pictures may not be the stuff of genius, but they’ve paid for a good life. When her father dies, Claire loses faith in the work she has devoted her life to-and worse, begins to feel jealous of her daughter’s success. Then, as she helps prepare a retrospective of her famous father’s photographs, Claire uncovers revelations about him that change everything she believes about herself as a mother, a daughter, and an artist.”

Love From Your Friend , Hannah – Mindy Warshaw Skolsky

“Hannah’s best friend, Aggie, moves away and doesn’t answer a single one of her letters. Determined to find a new pen pal, Hannah picks an address from a box on her teacher’s desk. It’s a boy, but his first letter is so dopey, Hannah isn’t even going to answer it. Instead, she writes to President Roosevelt. Before long, Hannah has a whole lot of pen pals–and finally discovers the perfect friend, in the most unlikely place.

In this absorbing epistolary novel, Mindy Warshaw Skolsky takes readers back to the late 1930s, and into the life of an irrepressible and unforgettable heroine.”
