Shy, by Max Porter

Staff Pick

Known for his uncanny ability to lay bare the breadth of human experience in as few as a hundred pages, Porter here turns his vivid and tender prose to his signature themes of grief, the search for belonging, and the terrifying nature of growing up, to tell the moving story of Shy, a teenager struggling to escape from a juvenile detention facility aptly known as Last Chance, where the camaraderie is often little different from the brutality.
