Set in a United States in which half the population has been silenced, Vox is the harrowing, unforgettable story of what one woman will do to protect herself and her daughter.
On the day the government decrees that women are no longer allowed more than one hundred words per day, Dr. Jean McClellan is in denial. This can't happen here. Not in America. Not to her.
Soon women are not permitted to hold jobs. Girls are not taught to read or write. Females no longer have a voice. Before, the average person spoke sixteen thousand words each day, but now women have only one hundred to make themselves heard.
For herself, her daughter, and every woman silenced, Jean will reclaim her voice.
This is just the beginning...not the end.

With divorce and infidelity hanging from every branch of her family tree, Katherine Fuller sees no point in marriage. Boyfriends? Sure. Sex? Of course. Wedding vows? No, thanks. Still, when her younger sister Amy gets engaged, Katherine’s on board with everything—dress fittings, the florist, and bridal showers. She won’t let Amy down. She did plenty of that as a kid, starting the day she told their dad that Mom was having an affair.
As if planning her sister’s big day isn’t enough excitement, Katherine’s college love walks back into her life. It broke her heart to part from sexy Irish musician Eamon a decade ago, but falling back under his spell means confronting secrets she’s been hiding for years. One will forever ruin the sunny way Eamon sees her. The other will destroy her bond with Amy. But some secrets are too explosive to hide. And when the worst comes to light, Katherine must rely on the one thing she’s never, ever trusted—love.

A hilarious and heartwarming debut novel about a brilliant but socially inept robotics engineer who builds her own wedding date to her sister's wedding, and learns more about love than she ever expected.
Meet Kelly. Twenty-nine, valedictorian, and a brilliant robotics engineer to boot. While her professional life is on the rise, her personal life is struggling to get off the ground.
With her sister's wedding looming and her attempts to find a date becoming increasingly cringe-worthy, Kelly does the only logical thing: she builds her own boyfriend, if only to get her mom off her back about being perpetually single. Kelly planned to pass off her robotic masterpiece, Ethan, as her other half just until the wedding. But then she can't resist keeping him around even after the "I do's."
Ethan is just too perfect--gorgeous, attentive, smart (he does have Google for a brain), all topped off by a mechanical heart endlessly devoted to her. When Kelly is with him, she becomes a more confident, spontaneous version of herself. Plus, for the first time, her mother is actually proud of her.
But as the struggle to keep Ethan's true identity a secret threatens to detonate the career Kelly has worked so hard for, she knows she has to kiss her toy boy goodbye.
There's just one problem: she's falling for him.
