Great post-apocalyptic story featuring a whole host of awesome female characters trying to navigate a world where every living male creature has suddenly died (except for one and his Capuchin monkey named Ampersand).
I loved reading the author's descriptions of the earth's beautiful and perilous underground caves. I came to understand just how life-threatening cave diving is--even for well-known, experienced divers. Great read!
I love a good memoir, and I'm also fascinated with family history. When I saw this book about someone who found out she wasn't biologically who she thought she was by taking a DNA test through Ancestry.com, I knew I wanted to read it! In this well-written memoir, we follow Dani for a year as she learns that her father wasn't actually her biological father, and then works through what that means for her and her family.
