Underground by Gayle O’Brien

It’s my policy here at Slightly Bookist not to review books written by my friends. But I do want to give another shout-out to Underground, by my friend Gayle O’Brien. Last year she won the Hookline contest, a competition in which book clubs read manuscripts and then vote on which one should be published. Underground is a fantastic dual-narrative page-turner about two American girls on the run, one contemporary, and one a hundred and fifty years ago. Read it!
