* White Elephant by Julie Langsdorf

In a picture-perfect suburb that resists any change, a war is brewing against those who dare to transform the historical, small houses with mansions. Neighbors plot against neighbors while their neglected children suffer intractable headaches, skip school, and generally wonder what the adults are up to.

If you enjoy reading about the (mild) angst of midlife affluent white folks, this book is for you. Despite dozens of chopped-down trees, a fire, and a kidnapping, I felt I could have taken a nap and missed nothing.
