>THE SUGAR ISLAND Ivonne Lamazares

This novel by a Cuban-born author evokes the Elian saga—but hers is set in the '60s, and it's about a mother and daughter escaping on a raft. (Houghton Mifflin, $23)

THE LOVE HEXAGON William Sutcliffe In what may be best described as a novelized British version of Friends, the lives of six London twentysome-things are charted with delicious English wit. (Penguin, $12)

BLACKBIRD Jennifer Lauck This affecting memoir, subtitled A Childhood Lost and Found, gives hope to those who have weathered the loss of a parent, particularly a mom. (Pocket, $23.95)
