Future Home of the Living God by Louise Erdrich
The National Book Award-winning author of LaRose and The Round House dips her toe into the dystopian pool with Future Home of the Living God. This chilling and eerily prophetic novel has echoes of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale.

Heather, The Totality by Matthew Weiner
This is the first novel penned by Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner. It was a controversial pick for us, with a few folks who absolutely loved it, and a couple...well, not so much. But love wins, and this story of a family finding out how vulnerable their picture perfect life is, is a message that resonates with everyone.
