Jojo Moyes, Brianna Caplan Sayres, Christian Slade, & Jacqueline Winspear Debut on the Indie Bestseller List

diggersWe’ve collected the books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending July 06, 2014–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.

(Debuted at #7 in Hardcover Fiction) One Plus One by Jojo Moyes: “Suppose your life sucks. A lot. Your husband has done a vanishing act, your teenage stepson is being bullied, and your math whiz daughter has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that you can’t afford to pay for. That’s Jess’s life in a nutshell—until an unexpected knight in shining armor offers to rescue them.” (July 2014)

(Debuted at #12 in Children’s Illustrated) Where Do Diggers Sleep at Night? written by Brianna Caplan Sayres & illustrated by Christian Slade: “The bedtime rituals of little diggers and dump trucks at a construction site should be quite familar to kids saying goodnight. Young readers will identify with fire engines, tractors and monster trucks as the vehicles ask for one more story while their mommy trucks tuck them in, and their daddy trucks sing a goodnight song.” (May 2012)

(Debuted at #14 in Hardcover Fiction) The Care and Management of Lies by Jacqueline Winspear: “By July 1914, the ties between Kezia Marchant and Thea Brissenden, friends since girlhood, have become strained—by Thea’s passionate embrace of women’s suffrage, and by the imminent marriage of Kezia to Thea’s brother, Tom, who runs the family farm.” (July 2014)
