"It's pretty rare that a book takes my breath away. But I guarantee Rowan Hisayo Buchanan's beautiful debut, Harmless Like You, will do just that. Yuki is a young Japanese woman struggling to find her place in 60s New York; Jay, the son she abandons and meets again in the present day."
It's my favorite book of all time, and I can't believe it's not super popular. About a magical circus open only at night, it offers a new take on magic and love, and it's beautifully written. Plus, the plot and characters pull you in and beg you to read the the entire book in one sitting.—Melanie
