New in Paperback at Common Good Books

For the Kids...

Katherine Applegate's Home of the Brave is the story of a young African refugee in Minnesota told in spare free verse. More than a story of immigration, it helps us understand ourselves better. As bookseller Liddy Rich writes, "You know how when you travel far away you get a better understanding of home? Well, this book does the same, minus the trip."

And for the Adults in the Room...

Charles Baxter's The Soul Thief is creepy, witty, and well-observed. It will haunt you long after you have turned the last page.
