Girl Tribe Recommends: Books
By Chloe Cornell
National Geographic’s first female editor, Susan Goldberg, produced this collection of images of women from around the world from the magazine’s archives.
Written by Jeanine Cummins, this is the book to read based on advance reviews calling it “a Grapes of Wrath for our times” and “a new American classic.” About a family of three in Acapulco where the woman who owns a bookstore and her husband is a journalist. When the husband writes a scathing article about the leader of the newest drug cartel who is a customer of the wife’s store, the couple and their young son have to flee for their lives, suddenly becoming migrants on their way to America. Stephen King calls the book “Extraordinary” and others have said it is the most important book of our times.
