6/18 Becoming (Obama); 7/16 Salt to the Sea (Sepetys); 8/20 Wind in the Willows (Grahame)

6/18 Becoming, by Michelle Obama

In her memoir Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. She describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words and on her own terms.

7/16 Salt to the Sea, by Ruth Sepetys

As World War II draws to a close, refugees try to escape the war's final dangers, only to find themselves aboard a ship with a target on its hull.

8/20 Wind in the Willows, by Kenneth Grahame

Meek little Mole, willful Ratty, Badger the perennial bachelor, and petulant Toad. Since their first appearance over a hundred years ago in 1908, they've become emblematic archetypes of eccentricity, folly, and friendship. And their misadventures--in gypsy caravans, stolen sports cars, and their beloved Wild Wood--continue to capture readers' imaginations and warm their hearts long after they grow up. Begun as a series of letters from Kenneth Grahame to his son, THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS is a timeless tale of animal cunning and human camaraderie.
