The Prey by Tom Isbell
Written by UMD theater professor Tom Isbell, this hot debut trilogy is a riveting story of survival, courage, and romance in a future where creating a master civilization is the only thing prized, no matter the method. After the Omega (the end of the end), 16 year old guys known as LTs discover their overseers are raising them not to be soldiers (lieutenants) as promised, but to be sold as bait because of their Less Than status and hunted for sport. They escape and join forces with a girls’ camp, the Sisters, who have been imprisoned and experimented on for the “good of the Republic,” by a government eager to use twins in their dark research. In their plight for freedom, these heroes must find the best in themselves to fight against the worst in their enemies.

Allie's Adventure on the Wonder by Erika Adams
Written by Duluth author, Erika Adams, a graduate of UMD
Synopsis:
Allie Little lives in a perpetual Wonderland . . . with all of the confusion and none of the wonder. Diagnosed with Auditory Processing Disorder, Allie is continually forced down a rabbit-hole of contradiction and misunderstanding. Whatever Allie reads, sees, or hears can—and does—turn into nonsense, and the time to be “curiouser and curiouser” about her surroundings is a luxury that the more “sensible” but less patient people around her seldom allow. But one day, she takes a trip on a ferry called the Wonder and meets a mentally unstable yet wise man named Charlie. It is through her unlikely friendship with this mad character that Allie learns not only to better cope with her condition, but to find the courage to make her way in the real world.

The Latehomecomer: A Hmong Family Memoir
Author Kao Kalia Yang

In search of a place to call home, thousands of Hmong families made the journey from the war-torn jungles of Laos to the overcrowded refugee camps of Thailand and onward to America, but their history remains largely unknown. Driven to share her family’s story after her grandmother’s death, Kao Kalia Yang’s memoir is a tribute to the remarkable woman whose spirit held them all together.

Born in Thailand’s Ban Vinai Regugee Camp, Yang immigrated to St. Paul, Minnesota when she was only six years old. With a journalist’s heart for truth and a storyteller’s gift for lyricism, Yang describes her family’s harrowing escape from Laos, their life in the refugee camps, the hardships and great joy of caring for a growing family in a new land, and her own experiences with American life and learning.

Through this moving, intimate portrait of a family, she also give voice to the dreams, wisdom, and traditions passed down from her grandmother and shared by an entire community.

The Dangerous Islands by Seamas Cain
The Dangerous Islands by Séamas Cain is an unusual coming-of-age tale. The novel describes the experiences and emotions of a young man living through the era of Civil War in Northern Ireland from 1965 to 1998. The hero of this novel, an Irish-American like Cain, undergoes a journey of the mind as well as a journey of the body, in a process of self-realization in another country. Indeed, Cain based many of the protagonist's activities on his own thoughts, dreams, and experiences in Northern Ireland in that era.

Says Cain, “In my youth, in Northern Ireland, I was active in the Civil Rights Movement, People's Democracy, and later the Peace Movement. My experiences from those times were filtered into the composition of The Dangerous Islands. Indeed, much of the novel was written in Belfast or Limavady and Dungiven — though I am a Minnesota Irishman.”

The Cartoon Introduction to Economics, Volume Two
Authors Grady Klein and Yoram Bauman, Ph.D

Need to understand today’s economy? This is the book for you. The Cartoon Introduction to Economics, Volume Two: Macroeconomics is the most accessible, intelligible, and humorous introduction to unemployment, inflation, and debt you’ll ever read.

It explores the two big concerns of macroeconomics: How economies grow and why economies collapse. It illustrates the basics of the labor market and explains what the GDP is and what it measures, as well as influence of government, trade, and technology on the economy. Along the way, it covers the economics of global poverty, climate change, and the business cycle. In short, if any of these topics have cropped up in a news story and caused you to wish you grasped the underlying basics, buy this book.

The Cartoon Introduction to Economics Volume One
Authors Grady Klein and Yoram Bauman, Ph.D

Need to understand today’s economy? This is the book for you. Google’s chief economist, Hal Varian, once wrote, “You don’t need a brand-new economics, you just need to see the really cool stuff, the material they didn’t get to when you studied economics.” The Cartoon Introduction to Economics, Volume One: Microeconomics is all about integrating the really cool stuff- such as auction theory, adverse selection, and the prisoner’s dilemma – into the funniest and most digestible overview of microeconomics you’ll ever read.

Sisterhood of War: Minnesota Women in Vietnam
Author Kim Heikkila

Historian Kim Heikkila delves into the experiences of fifteen nurse veterans from Minnesota, exploring what drove them to enlist, what happened to them in-country, and how the war changed their lives.

These women, among approximately six thousand military nurses who served in Vietnam, saw themselves as nurses first and foremost: their job was to heal rather than to kill. After the war, however, the very professional selflessness that had made them such committed military nurses also made it more difficult for them to address their own need as veterans. Reaching out to each other, they began healing from the wounds of war, and they turned their energies to a new purpose: this group of Minnesota's launched the campaign to build the national Vietnams Women's Memorial. In the process, a collection of individuals became a tight-knit group of veterans who share the bonds of a sisterhood forged in war.
