Shownotes

Gayle and Nicole discuss books about the dark side of suburbia: how people who are different are often mistreated or excluded, how darkness and evil can live under the surface and how society's ills - racism, environmental issues, abuse - often play out amid idyllic surroundings. They also discuss this month's book club pick: Good Neighbors by Sarah Langan.
