ZOE FISHMAN, Invisible As Air: A Novel
(Book Club Pick!)
Sylvie Snow knows the pressures of expectations. A woman is supposed to work hard, but never be tired; age gracefully, but always be beautiful; fix the family problems, but always be carefree. Sylvie does the grocery shopping, laundry, scheduling, schlepping, and the PTA-ing, while planning her son’s Bar Mitzvah and cheerfully tending her husband, Paul, who’s been lying on the sofa with a broken ankle. She’s also secretly addicted to her husband’s Oxycontin. She tells herself the pills are temporary, just a gift, and that she’ll go back to her regularly scheduled programming when the supply runs out. But days turn into weeks, and Sylvie slips slowly into a nightmare. As the Bar Mitzvah nears, the family must face the void within themselves.

(Book Club Pick!)
Kerrie O’Malley, jobless and in an unfulfilling relationship, knows the exact moment when her life veered off course—the night she was irrevocably wronged by someone she looked up to. When Kerrie sees the woman who destroyed her life on television 18 years later, a fire ignites inside her. The stakes are high. The risks are perilous. But she’ll stop at nothing to achieve the retribution she deserves.

No one knows the truth about her and the dark shadows of her past. No one, that is, except Kerrie. Pretty Revenge is a riveting novel bursting with twists, turns, and suspenseful exploration of how far someone will go for vengeance.
