Sometimes in the dreary late winter months, all I want is a book that I can escape to. While the world in Wool is not one we want for our future, this post-apocalyptic mystery is certainly enthralling enough to keep the chill away.

This book captured me. the characters are vivid and empathetic. It made me laugh out-loud and mourn the last page. Centered around an apartment building in Paris, the story follows Renee the concierge, and Paloma, a 12 year-old tenant. They both hide their true selves from the world but find people to show themselves to.

I read this book in one day, and I could not put it down. This beautiful novel has a touch of magical realism. A childless couple finds a young wild girl after the first snow. She brings mystery and hjoy to the couples life.
