The dynamic duo we need! (Four more years?!) This hilarious caper finds Joe Biden feeling left out while his best friend Barack Obama vacations around the world with high-profile friends. But soon they're brought together while investigating the murder of an Amtrak train conductor. This book is perfectly corny and satirical. Thank you Andrew Shaffer!

Think a group of costumed kids can't scare Darth Vader? In the words of the iconic Sith Lord, I find your lack of faith disturbing. Adam Rex's impeccable comedic timing makes this book a laugh-out-loud joy from start to finish (and yes, more than one Porter Square bookseller was literally laughing out loud).

The drag queen of mean proves that reading really is what? Fundamental. Serving both Tea and Shade and giving us all life; she’s a snarky, un-PC, raucous and no-holds barred drunk person at a party who decides that now is totally the time to tell you what’s wrong with you! Joan Rivers would be SO proud. House down boots, Bianca!!!

Yass, Queen!! Bianca has spoken and I for one am listening. The true Dr Phil is spilling all the tea.  Friend won’t hold your hair while you vomit? Sashay away. Boyfriend won’t shave for you? Dump him, honey. Bianca del Rio has no filter, and I’m living for it. Werk it, girl.

As a bookseller, I read a lot of books. I’ve read a whole heap of staff-pick-able ones in the past few months. But this little aliebn has stayed with me since July; I've read and re-read it and found something new every time. Funny, poignant, and earnest, this book about a lonely alien his animal friends offers plenty of insight on what it means to be human.

Published: Twelve - May 30th, 2017

Franken is an excellent raconteur in this entertaining but highly informative memoir of his political journey to the U.S. Senate.  Providing an account of his excruciatingly drawn out contested run-off election and a sneak peak into the inner workings of government, this funny man shows he is deadly serious about politics, Ted Cruz and Minnesota. Franken for 2020!
