Hedonism – Donné Raffat

Cowpet Bay, a vacationing haven for the privileged in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands, is the meeting ground between five people—three men and two women—whose interaction leads to major changes in their lives. A Wall Street banker, his younger mistress—an aspiring academic—a retired professor of literature, a German graduate student of philosophy, and a local waitress all find their lives to be intertwined in a way that none expected. As their collective story unfolds, the events are viewed sequentially from the standpoint of each, revealing their impact not only on each but also, ultimately, on the whole bay community.

Wonder by R. J. Palacio 

 I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse. August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial deformity that prevented him from going to a mainstream school—until now. He's about to start 5th grade at Beecher Prep, and if you've ever been the new kid then you know how hard that can be. The thing is Auggie's just an ordinary kid, with an extraordinary face. But can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, despite appearances?

The Woman in Black by Susan Hill
