First, Renee shares her top five ride-or-die authors, or the five authors whose work she’ll read no matter what. You’ll probably recognize them because when Renee loves something, she forces it on everyone she knows. Then Mariquita reviews Claire Fuller’s newest book, Unsettled Ground, published May 18th. Unsettled Ground tells the story of adult twin siblings navigating a new normal after the death of their mother, and discovering that they may have to rely on others, a frightening and foreign prospect, for the help they need, even as it becomes increasingly clear that the stories they’ve known all their lives may not be as stable as they’ve seemed.
