I have a recommendation for you. The Dictionary of Lost Words by Pip Williams. The audio book is exceptionally well done, if you prefer that medium. It is a novel about the power of language and who gets to choose what words are worth keeping. Set in England at the time work on creating the Oxford dictionary was being done, a young girl begins to collect words the men discarded and decided not worthy of entry. Why, she asks, are the words women use in everyday life excluded? You will love this one, Maddie.
