Talk to Me is a young adult contemporary novel following high school student Carly Boyles as she navigates a series of tragedies that have befallen her. It is both heart-breaking and mildly disappointing. I’ll leave you to form your own opinions and with a brief trigger warning for suicide. A full review can be found here.
Described as a “vintage-glam spy thriller,” Amberlough follows the twisting paths of three protagonists; the treacherous government agent Cyril DePaul, black-market kingpin Aristide Makricosta, and Cordelia Lehane, a stripper at the Bumble Bee Cabaret and a drug dealer. Amidst a violent fascist revolution, crumbling economy, and government seeded through with corruption, survival becomes harder and harder every day. It’s every man for himself as these three struggle to survive regardless of who gets in their way, whether it be an enemy or each other.

In this new twist on the Cinderella story we follow Sylvia Stark, a reporter trying to make her mark. Stuck covering celebrity news and playing a character for the viewers, Sylvia doesn’t bring any high expectations to her interview with Cinderella’s stepmother. What she comes with, however, might be just the story her career needs.

This is another one of those difficult to describe pieces. I feel like short stories are too easy to spoil.
The plot essentially revolves a man named Jesse, some of the things he’s done in his town, and how he’s changed since he’s done them.
Bad summary, great story!
