Beach Reads 2014: Seasonal Picks from City Lit Books

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Welcome to Beach Reads, the series that delivers page-turning picks for the dog days of summer.

As beach season kicks into high gear, we asked staffers at Logan Square bookstore City Lit Books to suggest some books to stash in our raffia bags. From a set-in-space adventure to a coming-of-age tale, here's what they had to say. Check out their selections below, and stop by the store to pick up the juicy tomes.
