Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend
By Katarina Bivald
Translated from the Swedish, this is the story of two pen-pals: Sara from Sweden and Amy from Broken Wheel, Iowa. Their love of reading bonds these two friends together across the miles until Amy invites the lonely and introverted Sara to visit her in the U.S.
This book would appeal to readers who enjoy charming stories about small-town life, bookshops, and awkward romances. Many titles and authors are discussed and recommended throughout the book and, to my pleasant surprise, they are listed by category at the end of the book! This would make a great book club selection.
Read-alikes: The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.
