  1. The Art of Racing in the Rain is a 2008 novel by American author and film producer Garth Stein — told from a dog’s point of view. The novel became a New York Times bestseller, remaining on the list for more than 156 weeks.

    Where’d You Go Bernadette? Bernadette Fox is notorious. To her Microsoft-guru husband, she’s a fearlessly opinionated partner; to fellow private-school mothers in Seattle, she’s a disgrace; to design mavens, she’s a revolutionary by Maria Semple. This book is more complex than I gathered from the summary. It is unique and, I thought very well written.

    K, here are my suggestions: Sister of My Heart is a novel by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni. The story centers on the lives of two Indian girls, Anju and Sudha
