Make the most of your summer by enjoying these book recommendations from Montage Literary Ambassador Brad Meltzer. For Montage Hotels & Resorts Literary Ambassador and New York Times best-selling author Brad Meltzer, reveling in a captivating story can be a life-altering experience. “There’s nothing more powerful than good stories,” he says. “Whether they’re real or fi ction, the best ones stay with us forever and can have a tremendous infl uence on the decisions we make.” Meltzer’s literary picks for this warm-weather season echo that sentiment. “The common thread running through the books I’ve recommended is that the main characters are put into situations where they’re each forced to look at their own world and question how and why they’re living in it,” he says. “What they come up with is a fascinating look into human nature.” In between dips in the pool, dive into new worlds, meet dynamic characters and master the art of resiliency with these book recommendations from Meltzer. Brad Meltzer’s Must-Reads The best-selling author shares his picks for parents and teens to enjoy from cover to cover this season. FOR ADULTS “HOMEGOING” BY YAA GYASI This epic story traces the lives of seven generations of descendants of two half-sisters born in Ghana in the 18th century. “The characters are so realistically drawn that you can’t help but see bits of yourself,” Meltzer says. FOR ADULTS “OPTION B: FACING ADVERSITY, BUILDING RESILIENCE, AND FINDING JOY” BY SHERYL SANDBERG AND ADAM GRANT In this volume by two dear friends, Meltzer says, there are beautiful things about building resiliency. “When Option A is no longer available, you have to learn how to find joy with Option B,” he says. FOR ADULTS “ALL OUR WRONG TODAYS” BY ELAN MASTAI “This book about the future asks the question, ‘What would you do if you could change your life?’ ” Meltzer says. “It’s keeping me up at night.” FOR YOUNG ADULTS “NORSE MYTHOLOGY” BY NEIL GAIMAN “These are not stories of ridiculousness or lost gods, but stories of us,” Meltzer explains. “Neil shows us how they’re remarkably relevant.” FOR YOUNG ADULTS “THE VISION” BY TOM KING Meltzer’s favorite comic of the past year tells the story of a robot family living a life in Virginia that just can’t last. “Waiting for it to come undone is haunting,” Meltzer says.
