Need help on book for book club

Can anyone recommend a good book to read for a book club? There's 5 girls and we pretty much read anything. Any suggestions?

I just finished an amazing book. It's title is "Hunger Point," and it was written by Jillian Medoff. It is a fiction story, but it is so well written and tackles such sharp and real issues that it seems like it's a true memoirs.

Not to give the story away, but it's about two sisters and their struggles when one of them becomes anorexic. Hence my take on it tackling sharp and real issues. It is certainly the best book I've read in forever. If you take it up, let me know your thoughts.

Thanks for the recommendation. I may suggest that book and will let you know if we read it and if not, I will read it on my own...

I really enjoyed Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann. It's about the tight rope walker who walked between the World Trade Center Towers in 1974 and a collection of other (fictional) stores that take place on the same day and are all intertwined.
