Lessons in Chemistry

Lessons in Chemistry, by Bonnie Garmus

Don’t judge this incredible novel by its cover—Lessons in Chemistry is not a light chick-lit beach read. It’s hilarious, fantastical, romantic, and a book you won’t put down, but the story of a brilliant woman who refused to conform to gendered expectations in the early 1960s has a deadly serious point. There’s no one in fiction quite like Elizabeth Zott, a chemist who cooks with gas and inspires a feminist revolution.

I loved, loved, LOVED this book. It’s a must read, as far as I’m concerned. I’d love to hear what you think.
