Snow City by G. A. Kathryns

Rating: ★★★★

RCR Says: “While certain questions go unanswered, ‘Snow City’ is weighty enough to stand on its own, and it illuminates human themes like family and mortality with unusual delicacy and compassion.”

Cops Lie! by Leonard Love Matlick

Rating: ★★★

RCR Says: “It hardly seems a coincidence that a book so heavily engaged with the topic of police brutality should be published at a time like this, especially in the wake of bestsellers like Angie Thomas’s The Hate U Give receiving well-deserved attention this year.”
