Eden Prairie Librarians’ Book Picks for June

These books go perfectly with a little sun and sand.

Gone Girl
by Gillian Flynn
Recommended by Laura Carlson
I could not put this book down! The plot and author’s style of writing made me feel very invested in this story. While you might not like the husband and wife at the center of this book, you will want to know what each one does next.

Seating Arrangements
by Maggie Shipstead
Recommended by Laura Carlson
Weddings seem to bring out the best and worst in families, and the Van Meters are no exception. When friends and family gather at the family’s summer home on a New England island for the ceremony, we get to see how old rivalries and desires play out from the view point of multiple characters.

Treasure Island!!!

by Sara Levine
Recommended by Lee Burkhalter
Levine takes a classic work and uses it as the trigger for a dysfunctional family drama that becomes ever more bizarre and hilarious as a young woman tries to embody the core values from the book; boldness, resolution, independence and horn-blowing, resulting in some interesting situations.
