I found a new word The Last Good Girl by Allison Leotta.
1. exurbs – “New Horizons was a private rehabilitation center located on a posh ten-acre campus in the exurbs of Tower County.”
I had an idea of the meaning of exurbs but decided to look it up. I was close but didn’t have it exactly right. An exurb is a district outside a city, especially a prosperous area beyond the suburbs.
I also found a word in Today Will Be Different by Maria Semple.
2. monstrance – “On certain Catholic holy days, the Eucharist was displayed in a golden sunburst monstrance where worshipful eyes gazed at it around the clock.”
A monstrance is a vessel used by the Catholic church to display some object of piety.
