3. "Ten Thousand Saints," by Eleanor Henderson

of

From suburban Vermont to the not-yet-gentrified East Village, Eleanor Henderson's debut coming-of-age story offers perspectives on both the 1980s and parent-child relationships. When a drug overdose leads to the death of a teen, his friends form a family of their own and move to NYC, hoping, in part, to raise the unborn child he fathered on the night he died. If you ever partied at CBGB – or just wish that you had – this is the perfect novel for you.
