Bookworm with Kids To get the ball rolling, I am going to nominate Frog Music by Emma Donoghue. This is set during a heat wave in San Francisco in 1876.

Susan | 4707 comments I'd like to nominate The Dry byJane Harper. I felt the heat.

Bookworm with Kids Susan, The Dry would be perfect for this but we read it for our April group read! I could really feel the sapping heat in it as well, it was almost another character. Can you nominate another book instead?
