The Long Game by Elena Armas is not your typical romance. It’s full of spite and fire, as two worlds collide in a small town where the soccer team needs all the help it can get. Adalyn, who coached a Miami pro team, is there to do just that, but she’ll need the guidance of a retired soccer star. She has to turn around this team or lose everything. But it won’t be easy, what with the team wearing tutus, and goats at practice—and did we mention that they’re 9-year-old girls? Adalyn has her work cut out for her with the team and the retired star Cameron Caldani.
Elon Musk is a bit of an enigma, but Walter Isaacson (who wrote the excellent biography of Steve Jobs) brings him to life as never before. Isaacson delves deep into his troubled childhood, showing how it still affects his life and how he runs his business. He shadowed Musk for two years, going everywhere with him and interviewing his family, friends, coworkers, and adversaries. His story reveals the trials and tribulations that led to Musk’s extremely high tolerance for risk.
The Fraud by Zadie Smith is a mystery wrapped in historical fiction that will keep you enthralled to the end. The novel re-imagines the “Tichborne Trial,” a historical case when a lower-class Australian butcher claims he is the heir of a sizable estate and title. But the heroine in this story thinks he’s a fraud and sets out to prove her theory. This story is full of deception, hypocrisy, and of course, fraud.
