Let’s pretend that as a middle-schooler, I wasn’t a “townsperson” (read: not-very-talented extra) in my hometown’s production of Carousel, and get right to the point… June is a great month to to bust out and publish a doozy of a book.

You can call this one a double doozy! Parade says of The Ocean at the End of the Lane: “A young boy discovers a neighboring family’s supernatural secret. Soon his innocence is tested by ancient, magical forces, and he learns the power of true friendship. The result is a captivating read, equal parts sweet, sad, and spooky.”
Stephen King is back at it with Joyland. According to The Telegraph, “American imprint Hard Case Crime is a deliberately retro pulp paperback press, and Joyland is Stephen King’s second deliberately retro pulp paperback written for it.” Also, Mr. King discusses the book in an interview with Neil Gaiman.
Happy Summer Reading!
