Three Cups of Tea, Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin
Despite his failed attempt at climbing Mount K2, Three Cups of Tea follows Greg Mortenson’s story as he ultimately changes the world. He built over 60 schools for areas where children weren’t receiving a proper education (Pakistan and Afghanistan, namely). He started this journey with a single school and expanded from there, ultimately helping improve the quality of life for countless communities.
Beach House for Rent, Mary Alice Monroe
Two women, one the owner of a beach house and one the tenant, have two completely different stories. One is quite shy while the other is in control of her life and feels confident. Throughout the duration of the summer, however, they both undergo changes and discover more about themselves than they thought possible. This story is one of change and self-discovery.
The Humans, Matt Haig
Human is a story about aliens, math equations, a dog, and much more. Most importantly, it is about the importance of emotions and relationships as the main character learns about how wonderful it is to experience love and family (as well as friendship).
