Magers & Quinn Booksellers Pick Perfect Summer Reads

"My Sister, the Serial Killer" by Oyinkan Braithwaite and "With the Fire on High" by Elzabeth Avecedo
These book recommendations from Magers & Quinn are great for the beach, cabin, hotel or any other summer destination.

Magers & Quinn assistant manager Beth Rusk recommends My Sister, the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite. (Doubleday 2018.)

“It’s unlike any book I’ve ever read,” says Rusk about this quirky, comic thriller. “It’s set in Lagos, Nigeria and has murder, romance and information about how to clean up after your crime. It’s a quick read, written in short chapters and perfect for summer reading.”

Magers & Quinn sales and outreach manner Christine Utz’s pick is the young adult novel With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo. (HarperTeen 2019.)

“This is an upbeat story about a teen pregnancy. It involves the main character learning to become a chef. It involves romance, and has a lot of great descriptions about food, cooking and the process of becoming a chef. The book follows the main character’s journey as she figures out her life’s path,” says Utz.
