Dylan’s pick for October is Prozac Nation: Young and Depressed in America by Elizabeth Wurtzel. His review: 

Wurtzel’s memoir on her struggles with depression is intense, funny, and heart-wrenching, dripping with a familiarity everyone can relate to. For anyone struggling with the disease, anyone who loves someone struggling, and anyone else in between, this is a must read. Inspiration and gritty, it’s definitely an eye opener.

Gabriella’s staff pick for October is Annihilation by Jeff Vandermeer. Her review:

17934530

The first book in the Southern Reach trilogy is one you don’t want to miss. Reminiscent of The Road in its use of anonymous characters, it’s a crawling and creepy exploration of a rapidly growing, quarantined jungle area (Area X) that causes the scientists who investigate it to go missing. It’s more about the atmosphere and the inevitable mystery than the characters, which can make it a slow read at times, but it’s well worth reading to the end–and you will somehow be compelled to read on–to discover its simple but bizarre conclusion.

Goodreads Summary:

From the bestselling author of All Is Not Forgotten comes a thriller about two missing sisters, a twisted family, and what happens when one girl comes back…

One night three years ago, the Tanner sisters disappeared: fifteen-year-old Cass and seventeen-year-old Emma. Three years later, Cass returns, without her sister Emma. Her story is one of kidnapping and betrayal, of a mysterious island where the two were held. But to forensic psychiatrist Dr. Abby Winter, something doesn’t add up. Looking deep within this dysfunctional family Dr. Winter uncovers a life where boundaries were violated and a narcissistic parent held sway. And where one sister’s return might just be the beginning of the crime.
