I read Pearl, One on One, and The Book of Rueben - I really enjoyed them. If I had to say what her style is, I would lean toward Anne Tyler (whose writing I love, but mostly her older stuff). Her magic lies in illuminating the magic of "day in the life". If you're looking to stay in the horror/sci-fi genre, then no - you wouldn't enjoy. But if you need a break from that, she's a good place to go.
