The Longest Way Home Book Review:

A New York Times Notable Book: A far-future coming-of-age tale from the SF Grand Master, “one of the world’s finest stylists and storytellers” (San Antonio Express-News). “What wonders and adventures he has to tell us,” is how Ursula K. Le Guin characterized the work of Robert Silverberg, and in The Longest Way Home, he takes readers on another dazzling odyssey. Joseph, fifteen and separated from his family in the land known as Getfen, awakens to an attack on the Great House in which he is visiting. Narrowly escaping with his life but still pursued by enemies who wish to see him killed, Joseph must journey across a dark, unfamiliar world on his quest to return to his home of Helikis and his father. He has thousands of miles to travel and much to learn about this perilous alien world in transition—and about himself. “What the greatly changed Joseph might find at the end of his journey, and how he might react, are questions that I came to care deeply about.” —The New York Times Book Review “The Longest Way Home recalls, in a lot of ways, the old-time frontier adventures, not the ones with the cowboys and the Indians, but the ones where people have to learn to survive in the wilderness or along the prairie. [Joseph’s] adventures in survival are exciting, and the travels along this world are a pleasant escape.” —SF Site “This engaging, entertaining book is a fast read with many thoughtful themes.” —School Library Journal

Long Flight Home Book Review:

The First World War is over and air mechanic Wally Shiers has promised to return home to his fiancee, Helena Alford. But Wally never reckoned on charismatic fighter pilot Ross Smith, and an invitation to compete in the world's most audacious air race. A £10,000 prize has been offered for the first airmen to fly from England to Australia. Smith is banking on an open-cockpit Vickers Vimy, a biplane with a fuselage that looks ominously like a coffin. And who can resist a hero? Wally writes to Helena to say he won't be home for another year - and the love of his life is left holding her hand-stitched wedding dress ... Using war diaries, letters and Churchill Fellowship research from along the race route, Long Flight Home recreates one of the most important - and largely forgotten - chapters in world aviation history. Lainie Anderson's ambitious and moving novel is told through her narrator, Wally Shiers. The tale spans the decades and crosses the globe, and at his journey's end we're left peering down from an open cockpit on two beacons of truth. There is no heroism without honour. There is no legacy without love.

The Longest Shot Book Review:

The inspirational story of the unknown golfer from Iowa who beat his idol in the 1955 U.S. Open With the overlooked Jack Fleck still playing the course, NBC-TV proclaimed that the legendary Ben Hogan had won his record fifth U.S. Open and signed off from San Francisco. Undaunted, the forgotten Iowan rallied to overcome a nine-shot deficit over the last three rounds—still a U.S. Open record—and made a pressure-packed putt to tie Hogan on the final hole of regulation play. The two men then squared off in a tense, 18-hole playoff from which Fleck emerged victorious in one of the most startling upsets in sports history. On par with the classic golf narratives of Mark Frost and John Feinstein, The Longest Shot will surprise and delight fans as they trace the improbable journey of an unheralded former caddie who played his way into the record books by out-dueling the sport's greatest champion of his time.

Growing up Latchkey Book Review:

Thousands of children grew up with little or no parental guidance, and as a result, many of them are battling psychological and emotional problems as adults. These latchkey children are mostly unaware of how their upbringing has affected their present, but in Growing Up Latchkey, the author explores how she and others were affected by growing up largely unsupervised. Darla K. Johnson, PhD, draws on her background as a psychotherapist, psychologist, and spiritual counselor to explore the dynamics of latchkey families that had to contend with energy crises, the Cold War, recessions, and long hours at work. In these families, many children spent their entire K–12 experience getting themselves ready for school, arriving home to no parent greeting them, and in the author’s case—having no one to protect them from an abusive sibling. Johnson eventually developed post-traumatic stress disorder, but she overcame her symptoms to live a fulfilling and happy life. Join the author on a deep personal journey that holds lessons for educators, employers, therapists, and parents on helping people recover from and avoid fear and torment from childhood traumas.

If Not This Dream Book Review:

IF NOT THIS DREAM is an 1134-page fast-paced novel, presented in three books. Five generations after the death of Zaki I, his namesake Zaki II begins his quest to fulfill his ancestor’s dream. The pureblooded Hausa-American thrives under the passionate mentoring hands of Thomas Biggs, the last of the white family that brought the original patriarch out of Africa into slavery on their plantation twenty-five miles northeast of Charleston, South Carolina. Biggs’ subconscious desire to erase the evils of his family turns into genuine love of the African-American boy he supports. Biggs enrolls Zaki in Porter-Gaud School, a K-12 private preparatory school in Charleston. Zaki quickly becomes a best friend of Paula Walton, a white senator’s daughter. Their relationship quickly creates tension in the Walton family, especially when they reach high school age. Zaki becomes a high school football sensation, drawing attention from all the big colleges in the country. Paula joins the rally squad. A local newspaper maintains a special section to keep track of Zaki’s statistics as he attempts to become the greatest football player in Porter-Gaud history. To create balance in his life, Biggs develops Zaki into a virtuoso classical pianist. Paula becomes a prima ballerina. Along with other Porter-Gaud students, Zaki and Paula perform for huge audiences in Charleston. Zaki learns to sail Thomas Biggs’ 134-foot, two-masted yacht Santee. He sails into the open ocean with Paula. He shows Paula the necklace of lion claws and leather pouch of African earth that has been handed down to him by his father and grandfather, symbols of his new position as leader of the Hausas on Biggs Farms. Even though everyone at Porter-Gaud accepts that Zaki and Paula are a couple, by the end of their high school years, they still had not had a formal date. Thomas Biggs wills Zaki his vast family fortune

My Child My Teacher Book Review:

My Child, My Teacher is an account of a mother and daughter both grappling with the daughter’s mental issues, the exhaustion and frustration of navigating the often ineffective, uncaring, and mismanaged justice, social and mental health systems, and the indelible impact it is having on the relationship between mother and daughter. The book assumes the perspective from a parent, in this case, a woman who through unforeseen circumstances of her own found herself having to navigate the bulk of this burden alone. It chronicles the loving yet turbulent relationship between mother and daughter and positively chronicles their way to acceptance and understanding. Her experiences reveal in sometimes painful bas relief, that life can present many challenges, some unspeakable, while others can be joyful beyond the imagination. The book takes a look at how when the justice system, social services, and mental health mechanism converge, sometimes the results can be disastrous as some of the examples show. But the book also provides links to possible solutions to families in need. As this whole situation is still a work in progress, the relationship between mother and daughter is evolving as well.

LOL Book Review:

An estimated 30 to 40 million North Americans use online dating sites, and the growing industry can now take credit for 17% of all marriages on the continent. Not surprisingly, a myriad of online dating self-help books have popped up on shelves--how-to's and self-proclaimed success stories of finding a mate. This story is definitely not one of those. When Veronica first clicked on those two fateful words, "create profile," she did so with shaky hands and an equally shaken heart. She had no clue what kind of a roller coaster she had just strapped herself into, complete with highs, lows, and stomach-churning turns. The problem was, she had just gotten off another very bumpy ride and was unsure that she had the strength to embark on this new path. Living Out Loud takes you on a fresh and quirky ride through one woman's attempt to master the science of cyber-dating while navigating her way down the road to finding true love. Start with a once-conflicted, twice-divorced single mother, toss in some humorous self-discovery, sprinkle in a smattering of questionable dating profiles, and wrap it all up in a very colourful package that will make you want to laugh, cry and...
