Without You, There is No Us (Memoir) Highly Recommended

Without You, There is No Us by Suki Kim

Undercover in information-starved university where reality is dictated, freedom repressed.

Note: Try not to feel too superior while reading this. Consider Trump’s brand of fake news, habitual lying, stealing from the poor to give to the rich, and “alternative facts,” and realize that there is a very thin line separating Democracy from Dictatorship. It doesn’t take much more than an ego-maniacal, amoral leader, a gullible populace and truth-averse media to push a country over that particular brink.

The Rules of Magic (Prequel to Practical Magic)

books

The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman

Dreamlike, romantic, melancholy. Less magical than historical. Passive, not powerful.
