"The Turnout" by Megan Abbott"I love how Megan Abbott looks at the darker sides of things that we all remember, such as ballet classes as children," said Jenna, "She examines the relationship between Dara and Marie and the past that connects them while exploring themes of siblinghood, how our past predicts our future and the darker side of ballet."
"Great Circle," by Maggie Shipstead"Now, more than ever, I love reading about women who chart their own courses. As a mom of two little girls and a young boy, I believe it is important to highlight fictional and nonfictional stories of fierce, independent women who don’t conform to what society says we need to be."
"The Girl With The Louding Voice," by Abi Daré"While reading, there were times when I felt like Adunni was whispering, singing and in parts, crying to me," Jenna said. "This is truly a love story about one young girl whose resilience and grit drive her, until her voice is loud and clear."
"Evvie Drake Starts Over," by Linda Holmes"I was captivated by Evvie Drake right away," said Jenna. "By the character of Evvie — and her predicament of finding herself as a young widow and trying to find herself after being in this marriage and being in this relationship since high school."
"The Unwinding of the Miracle," by Julie Yip-Williams"She wrote throughout her cancer diagnosis to, I think, make sense of it," Jenna said. "But she also had two young daughters, like I do. She was the same age that I am when she was diagnosed, which I think was one reason I immediately connected with it."
