iGen Book Review:

As seen in Time, USA TODAY, The Atlantic, The Wall Street Journal, and on CBS This Morning, BBC, PBS, CNN, and NPR, iGen is crucial reading to understand how the children, teens, and young adults born in the mid-1990s and later are vastly different from their Millennial predecessors, and from any other generation. With generational divides wider than ever, parents, educators, and employers have an urgent need to understand today’s rising generation of teens and young adults. Born in the mid-1990s up to the mid-2000s, iGen is the first generation to spend their entire adolescence in the age of the smartphone. With social media and texting replacing other activities, iGen spends less time with their friends in person—perhaps contributing to their unprecedented levels of anxiety, depression, and loneliness. But technology is not the only thing that makes iGen distinct from every generation before them; they are also different in how they spend their time, how they behave, and in their attitudes toward religion, sexuality, and politics. They socialize in completely new ways, reject once sacred social taboos, and want different things from their lives and careers. More than previous generations, they are obsessed with safety, focused on tolerance, and have no patience for inequality. With the first members of iGen just graduating from college, we all need to understand them: friends and family need to look out for them; businesses must figure out how to recruit them and sell to them; colleges and universities must know how to educate and guide them. And members of iGen also need to understand themselves as they communicate with their elders and explain their views to their older peers. Because where iGen goes, so goes our nation—and the world.

Where Am I Now Book Review:

"Thoughtfully traces [Mara Wilson's] journey from child actress to Hollywood dropout...Who is she now? She's a writer." —NPR's "Guide To 2016’s Great Reads" “Growing up, I wanted to be Mara Wilson. Where Am I Now? is a delight.” —Ilana Glazer, cocreator and star of Broad City Named a best book of the month by GoodReads and Entertainment Weekly A former child actor best known for her starring roles in Matilda and Mrs. Doubtfire, Mara Wilson has always felt a little young and out of place: as the only kid on a film set full of adults, the first daughter in a house full of boys, a Valley girl in New York and a neurotic in California, and a grown-up the world still remembers as a little girl. Tackling everything from what she learned about sex on the set of Melrose Place, to discovering in adolescence that she was no longer “cute” enough for Hollywood, these essays chart her journey from accidental fame to relative (but happy) obscurity. They also illuminate universal struggles, like navigating love and loss, and figuring out who you are and where you belong. Candid, insightful, moving, and hilarious, Where Am I Now? introduces Mara Wilson as a brilliant new chronicler of the experience that is growing up female.

The Unloved Book Review:

Sometimes the love our heart needs to heal can be found in the familiar eyes of a childhood friend... Julie Porter learned the hard way that trust is something which must be earned and not something to be given out lightly, those who say they love you are those who hold the power to hurt you most, and best friends can help you survive anything—until they move away. Nick Owen knows a thing or two about a hard life. At a young age Nick learned how to take a hit and to make lemonade out of the lemons life tossed his way. Returning home after nearly two years of being away, all Nick cares about now is protecting his mom from the abusive hands of his father and catching up with his best friend—the girl who lived across the street, the girl he can’t seem to stop thinking about. Finally reunited after two years apart, Nick and Julie are about to learn that age does nothing to protect you from life’s trials and tribulations, heartache and loss, but maybe together they’ll find a way to survive.

Beyond Four Boarders Book Review:

This book Beyond Four Boarders is about marriage challenges of the South African citizens who are married to Africans from Africa. The damage of the division of Africa a long time ago still is felt today. The different languages, cultures, perceptions, and stereotypes. Some South African mothers even go to the extent of cursing their daughters married to Africans from Africa. Some African mothers from Africa also don't approve South African ladies. We need to address this in order to allow our children to marry those they love. In this book I'm focusing on those who are struggling in marriages. These are usually the middle class and the lower class people. The rich don't experience these challenges. God gave me the title Beyond Four Boarders based on that my husband Katalay was beyond four boarders when I wrote this book. Katalay comes from Democratic Republic of Congo, when traveling by road, he goes through Zambia (2 boarders), Zimbabwe (2 boarders) then enter South African boarder. L'amour and I suffered hardship when Katalay was in Congo for over four years. The lies, gossiping, humiliation at home, in the community and some churches. The false beliefs that "foreign nationals marry South African women for identity document and to get resources. That African men from Africa come to South Africa already married and marry South African women as second wives. Denying African men from visiting their parents and siblings accusing them of visiting their wives and children. Now also added is falsely accusing foreign nationals of being human traffickers without any proof." Children of South Africans and African parents hide their identities at school for fear of discrimination. My daughter L'amour is asked by her classmates what nationality she is. They don't understand why her name is L'amour and not an African name. Some women and children why L'amour is taller that her classmates. There are children from various African countries who hide their identities because the moment it is know they are called derogative names. One day I took L'amour at a public park, I heard some kids between 7 - 10 years old telling a young Zimbabwean boy to go to his country and stop using a South African swing. The boy just kept quiet and kept playing. I did watch to make sure the boy was not beaten by his bullies. As individuals we have to make sure we promote loving our fellow human beings in spite of where they come from. There are people who think I'm from Africa and not a South African. That does not bother me. This happened even before the democracy of South Africa. I remember applying for an identity document, I spent two years going to Home Affairs Department, every Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays after school to apply for my identify document. Home Affairs told me to go to Zimbabwe or Mozambique to bring my father. What a humiliation it was. This book is also based on my personal challenges being married to a Congolese and of others I have met with similar problems. My domineering and controlling mother and relatives rejecting my husband. My husband's domineering and controlling mother who rejected me. Katalay's mother and sister calling me a foreigner, on the other hand my mother, siblings and some relatives calling Katalay a foreigner. These inflictions of pain went on for over 10 years of our marriage. When they failed on talking they resorted to witchcraft. It is unfair that parents choose for their children who to marry. To claim to care and protect their children. The phenomenon of choosing marriage partners by parents for their children is an unfair practice. Such parents usually have their interest in heart and not that of their children. Some of these children after agreeing to the arranged marriage they turn to drugs and alcohol to deal with the pressure. Some even abuse their spouses.

From the Grave Book Review:

As the Gypsies gather in the ancient village of Les-Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer for the annual celebration honoring their patron saint, a mystical convergence of events brings four adolescents together at a haunted house and sets them on a perilous quest to locate a centuries-old manuscript that holds the power to release the devastating force of the Ancient Ones upon the Earth. Fifteen-year-old Sarah and her younger brother Luca are lonely Gypsy kids who travel about Europe with their parents. Forced by their Gypsy father to beg and pick pockets for money, Sarah and Luca find it impossible to earn their father's approval. Fifteen-year-old Edgar cannot stand his parents (and the feeling is mutual) when the family moves from New Jersey to France so that his parents can live out their dream of being French aristocracy. Fourteen-year-old Aleck's world is turned upside down when his parents are killed in a car crash and his older sister decides that he would be better off in France with their Aunt and Uncle whose real concern is their own lavish lifestyle. Beset by their parents and guardians, the four young people must also survive the mercurial activities of a spirit haunting the house that holds clues to the location of the manuscript which is also sought by a secret society bent on locating it for their own purposes. In a frenzied chase that takes them from the ancient villages of Provence through the blood-soaked quarries of Roussillon to the macabre catacombs of Paris, the four must put aside their differences and suspicions to outwit the evil forces who would stop at nothing to get their hands on the ancient book. "From the Grave: The Prayer" is a classic tale of terror, suspense and intrigue set in southern France, written by the Master of the Macabre, William Castle.
