Andy loved Rosamund Young's The Secret Life of CowsMadeleine is cooking from Julia Busuttil Nishimura's Ostro, Trent has been in love with Philip Pullman forever. Get him started on The Book of Dust and you'll be there for a while. Sarah D loved Jesmyn Ward's Sing, Unburied, SingKrissy picked Angela Saini's Inferior: How Science Got Women Wrong - and the New Research That's Rewriting the Story, and Kev can't pick between Alexis Wright's Tracker Tilmouth: the Vision Splendid and Peter Carey's A Long Way from Home.  You can see all Avid staff Summer selections here
