    Story

    In the summer of 1938, Layla Beck's father, a United States senator, cuts off her allowance and demands that she find employment on the Federal Writers' Project, a New Deal jobs program. Within days Layla finds herself far from her accustomed social whirl, assigned to cover the history of the remote mill town of Macedonia, West Virginia, and destined, in her opinion, to go completely mad with boredom.

    Story

    Willa joins one of my other all-time favorite narrators—Scout Finch (To Kill a Mockingbird). Multiple narrators add a powerful dimension to the theme that history is shaped by the individual, family, or culture who shares the story. Well done, Annie Barrows.

    Newly transplanted to the big city of Chicago, she is one of the rare few to leave her small working-class town in Iowa, let alone for a prestigious university. She is not driven by academic ambition, nor is she a social butterfly. Her true gift is an ability to understand the needs of others and to reflect back the version of themselves they wish to see, rendering herself invisible. Deftly, she conceals her deeply troubled past - especially from her charismatic yuppie-in-the-making best friend and roommate.

    Story

    Reading Pietrzyk’s ‘Silver Girl’ is like watching Bryce Harper slug a mammoth home run. Crazy talent,honed by years of practice, delivering a jaw-dropping hit. Like the great baseball player, this writer has swagger. Instead of a bat flip and the slow jog around the bases, Pietrzyk sprinkles literary nuggets through out ‘Silver Girl’ to remind readers of her talent and make it impossible to leave this story behind.
