In 1980’s North Carolina, Bengali-American teenager Heera shares a rebellious streak with her best friend Marie and Maries’s brother Marco, who is also her crush. A terrible accident changes their lives with permanent consequences. Circa is an exquisitely written, deeply felt jewel of a novel that made my heart pound in my chest. This gripping and emotional page turner explores friendship and family, grief and joy, coming of age, womanhood, and the immigrant experience. --Christy Thomas, Librarian, Main Library
