Maureen Corrigan's top 10 books of 2012

For National Public Radio, Maureen Corrigan named her top ten books of 2012.

One title on the list:
Tupelo Hassman's girlchild

The ragged but resilient young narrator of Girlchild, a striking debut novel by Tupelo Hassman, also tells readers a thing or two about what it's like to grow up without safety nets. Rory Dawn Hendrix lives in a Reno, Nev., trailer park where you'd have a better chance of sighting a UFO than a helicopter parent.
Read about the other books on the list.
