Here's what Katie has to say about The Girl In the Flammable Skirt:

flammable skirtA fantastic debut collection of short stories by one of my favorite authors, Aimee Bender.  Stories like "Loser," the tale of a boy who has the magical ability to find any lost object - except what he himself has lost - or "The Rememberer," whose protagonist deals with the loss of a relationship when her boyfriend begins to experience “reverse evolution," read like modern-day fairy tales, the absurd elements illuminating the complex, relatable emotions under the surface.  This quick read made me want to search out and read everything that Aimee Bender has ever written. Weird in the best way possible, well written and completely original, The Girl in the Flammable Skirt stays with you long after it’s put away on the book shelf.  Try it out and let us know what you think!

Book club meets at the store on Sunday, September 28th at 6pm!
