Sadie Green and Sam Masur share an exceptional friendship--forged in the gaming room of the children's hospital, their connection is both fractious and unparalleled. As a renowned videogame-making duo, they are unstoppable. As individuals, their complicated lives--with their different backgrounds, ambitions, loves, and losses--leave them often unable to see eye-to-eye. Their thirty-year saga brims with potency. For me, it was deep balm in an anxious moment, a means of exploring other lives when my own felt like too much to bear. This book is momentous, heartbreaking, impossible to put down. It invites its reader to play, to experiment and create and love and game, with wild abandon. Easily one of the best books of the year; likely one of the best I'll ever read. --Talia

Isabel Kaplan's adult debut is an extremely smart, darkly humorous, and intense novel--one that is especially timely during the era of #metoo. --Jennie

In a continuation of the first, Mosscap and Sibling Dex are still working on answering the first question: what do people need? Here, they expand their audience to riverside towns and isolated low-tech villages. This novella is like a hug, a little joy that affirms the worth and value of all people and readers. Its melodic optimism is much-needed and a welcome escape from reality.  --Jordan
