“The School for Good Mothers” by Jessamine Chan
DISCIPLINED: These individuals are disciplined and have a strong sense of responsibility. They are willing to put in the hard work and effort required to reach their objectives. In the intense world of this book, the state has its eye on mothers like Frida. The ones who check their phones, letting their children get injured on the playground; who let their children walk home alone. Because of one moment of poor judgement, a host of government officials will now determine if Frida is a candidate for a Big Brother-like institution that measures the success or failure of a mother’s devotion.

DETERMINED: Once Capricorns set their sights on a goal, they are determined to achieve it. They are persistent and willing to overcome obstacles in order to reach their objectives.

“Dread Nation” by Justina Ireland 
RESPONSIBLE: These individuals take their responsibilities seriously, whether in personal relationships, work, or other areas of life. They strive to fulfill their duties and obligations.

However, in this alternate reality, the Civil War takes a drastic turn when the dead begin to rise on the battlefields, changing the course of history.
“The Rosie Project” by Graeme Simsion
PATIENT: Patience is a virtue for Capricorns. They are willing to wait for the results of their efforts and understand that success often comes with time and persistence.
