Girl power meets horsepower in this high-speed adventure!

The Princess and the Pit Stop

A plucky Princess races against a gaggle of fairy-tale and nursery greats in The Princess and the Pit Stop, an epic car race of a book.

Too bad Princess is in last place with one lap to go. She’ll have to catch the Gingerbread Man, lose Little Bo Peep and her Sheep, blow the doors off the Big Bad Wolf, and much more. Her Fairy Godmother tells her to just give up. Instead, this Princess hits the gas!

This turbo-charged read-aloud puts a princess—not up in a tower or awaiting a kiss—but at the center of the thrilling action, and gives each of her opponents a silly, perfect comeuppance.

Debut novelist J.J. Gesher tells an intimate, grief-filled story about Jacob Fischer - a sometimes wayward, sometimes obedient Brooklyn Orthodox Jew who breaks down after a devastating loss. Slowly rebuilding and rediscovering himself in a small-town Alabama town, Jacob has support from a cast of well-drawn characters - who also have their own demons to deal with. I loved learning more about the Orthodox Jew and the rich history of its sometimes stifling traditions, butting heads with modern sensibilities and realities. This highly readable title, right down to the very last sentence, is a natural pick for book clubs. A strong debut from the writing pair of J.J. Gesher. - Maureen
