December’s Book Pick: Iona Iverson’s Rule for Commuting by Clare Pooley.
eBooks and eAudiobooks are available on Libby.
Physical copies are available to pick up at the library.
Every day Iona travels the ten stops from Hampton Court to Waterloo Station by train. Every day she sees the same people, whom she knows only by nickname: Impossibly-Pretty-Bookworm and Terribly-Lonely-Teenager. Of course, the commuters never speak. Then one morning, the man she calls Smart-But-Sexist-Manspreader chokes on a grape right in front of her. He’d have died were it not for Sanjay, a nurse. This single event starts a chain reaction, and people with almost nothing in common discover that a chance encounter can blossom into much more.
