The Merry Spinster: Tales of Everyday Horror

We Are Inevitable

Gayle Forman

$18.99 $17.47

"The fastest way to a girl’s heart is a novel set in a bookstore. I loved We Are Inevitable and its cast of characters (slightly damaged, a little shopworn, but never bargain-basement.) The only flaw: that Bluebird Books doesn’t exist in real life, and I can’t go there to browse."
