A Closed and Common Orbit - Staff Choice by Sophie The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet and A Closed and Common Orbit are shelved with science fiction, but these were the most humane books I read all year. They were odes to the power of friendship, and building your own family, and accepting beings not like you, and doing the right thing because itís the right thing to do. Books with a big heart. Gentler, bookish versions of the TV series Firefly.
