You Can t Iron a Wrinkled Birthday Suit Book Review:

"When I get old, I hope to have friends as awesome as these. This is an absolutely feel good novel. Naturally, our intrepid characters, wattles and all, undergo all sorts of trials, but it's the compassion and generosity they exhibit that endears the reader." -- Sam Sanders, via NetGalley Zany families, eccentric friends, and ne-er-do-well neighbors inhabit the labyrinthine lives of three women friends as they grapple with real world events in one "Golden Year." An unwelcome visit from local law enforcement, a younger friend's romantic chaos, and the death of a parent combine with daily mundanities---laundry, scones, and senior sex---to create a walloping, raucous read. Opinionated pets---critics and alter egos---offer a rich counterpoint to the human dramas affecting their lives. Unfiltered and compelling, this entertaining sago provides readers of all ages with a new and positive view of growing older.

Speak The Graphic Novel Book Review:

The critically acclaimed, award-winning, modern classic Speak is now a stunning graphic novel. "Speak up for yourself—we want to know what you have to say." From the first moment of her freshman year at Merryweather High, Melinda knows this is a big fat lie, part of the nonsense of high school. She is friendless—an outcast—because she busted an end-of-summer party by calling the cops, so now nobody will talk to her, let alone listen to her. Through her work on an art project, she is finally able to face what really happened that night: She was raped by an upperclassman, a guy who still attends Merryweather and is still a threat to her. With powerful illustrations by Emily Carroll, Laurie Halse Anderson's Speak: The Graphic Novel comes alive for new audiences and fans of the classic novel. This title has Common Core connections.

They Call Me Crazy Book Review:

Cass Adams is crazy, and everyone in Deacon, Kansas, knows it. But when her good-for-nothing husband, Roland, goes missing, no one suspects that Cass buried him in their unfinished koi pond. Too bad he doesn’t stay there for long. Cass gets arrested on the banks of the Spring River for dumping his corpse after heavy rain partially unearths it. The police chief wants a quick verdict—he’s running for sheriff and has no time for crazy talk. But like Roland’s corpse, secrets start to surface, and they bring more to light than anybody expected. Everyone in Cass’s life thinks they know her—her psychic grandmother, her promiscuous ex-best friend, her worm-farming brother-in-law, and maybe even her local ghost. But after years of separate silences, no one knows the whole truth. Except Roland. And he’s not talking.

The Mother Book Review:

Yvvette Edwards' second novel, The Mother, tells Marcia's story. Today, Marcia is heading to the Old Bailey. She's going there to do something no mother should ever have to do: to attend the trial of the boy accused of her son's murder. She's not meant to be that woman; Ryan, her son, wasn't that kind of boy. But Tyson Manley is that kind of a boy and, as his trial unfolds, it becomes clear that it's his girlfriend Sweetie who has the answers Marcia so badly needs and who can - perhaps - offer Marcia some kind of hope for the future. But Sweetie is as scared of Tyson as Ryan should have been and, as Marcia's learned the hard way, nothing's certain. Not any more. Somehow I am stronger. Where it has come from exactly I cannot say, but it is to do with hope, it is to do with light . . .

Crisanta Knight Midnight Law Book Review:

SJ“br> My best friend Crisanta Knight is quite good at storytelling—the sass, hyperbole, quick description of action. But I am not her, so I will be bringing my own voice to the table. While she went to Dreamland to wake a prince and princess from a sleeping curse, I stayed in Book to broker peace between the commons and our realm’s higher-ups—a choice I was confident in until my friends returned without Crisa. If I had been with them could I have saved her? Jason Normally I had a lot on my to-do list—hero classes, captain my Twenty-Three Skidd team, fighting bad guys. Now there were only three things on my list: 1) Deal with the fact Blue shut me down after I told her about my feelings for her; 2) Respect her viewpoint but also change her perspective; 3) Figure out where the frack Crisa disappeared to and bring her home. Daniel I was never sure I deserved to be called a “hero,” but I’d been trying to earn it. My friends needed me to be one. Yet, despite fighting my hardest, I failed and a friend slipped through the cracks. So I didn’t care if I could turn to stone by invoking Midnight Law—if it was my best shot at bringing her home, I would follow the enchantment to Oz, Wonderland, Earth, and wherever else it took me. Blue Things had already gotten complicated when Jason made his... pronouncement. But now Crisa was lost and in danger, our enemies set on forcing her to lose control of her Pure Magic so she’d turn dark and help them conquer our realm. Which meant I had to make sure the two heroes magically able to find her made the right moves, and be willing to shake up the world like a dang salad mixer to keep the peace and save what mattered most.

The Glass Castle Book Review:

Journalist Walls grew up with parents whose ideals and stubborn nonconformity were their curse and their salvation. Rex and Rose Mary and their four children lived like nomads, moving among Southwest desert towns, camping in the mountains. Rex was a charismatic, brilliant man who, when sober, captured his children's imagination, teaching them how to embrace life fearlessly. Rose Mary painted and wrote and couldn't stand the responsibility of providing for her family. When the money ran out, the Walls retreated to the dismal West Virginia mining town Rex had tried to escape. As the dysfunction escalated, the children had to fend for themselves, supporting one another as they found the resources and will to leave home. Yet Walls describes her parents with deep affection in this tale of unconditional love in a family that, despite its profound flaws, gave her the fiery determination to carve out a successful life. -- From publisher description.

The Other Side of God Book Review:

Metaphysical Psychology: Journey into yourself in this surrealistic adventure into the human psyche and multi-dimensional realities in Book One of the "Other Side" series. The reader is catalyzed into a personal journey as the pages are turned, inviting a meditative experience to expand awareness, deepen self-appreciation, ease personal pain, heal psychological wounds, and bring one into a more fruitful life experience. Packed with cutting-edge metaphysical insights and powerful psychological understandings, this story further sheds light on the human cycle, the earth, and mystical dimensions. A sage known as the Fool on the Hill guides a struggling woman into herself and frees her into the quintessential meaning of life beyond social perception and conventional belief systems. The adventure begins when she crosses into where perceptions of reality are born, then into the land of dreams, worlds of meditation, and levels of death. Her exploration continues in the lake of self-image where she fights for her authenticity, the zone of internal balance where she learns to be centered in herself, the desert of loneliness where she strives for independence, and the cave of strife where she beholds the importance of chaos. She struggles to traverse the minefields of love without surrendering herself to another, to make peace with her personal demons in the tunnel of confrontation, to find out who she really is in the house of illusions, and come into who she must be in the realm of earth-shaking transitions. Her journey concludes in the skies of synchronicity where self understanding flourishes and insights abound. This manuscript is a tribute to the inner sage in us all.

1922 Book Review:

The chilling novella featured in Stephen King’s New York Times bestselling collection Full Dark, No Stars, 1922 is about a man who succumbs to the violence within—setting in motion a grisly train of murder and madness. Wilfred James owns eighty acres of farmland in Nebraska that have been in his family for generations. His wife, Arlette, owns an adjoining one hundred acres. She wants to sell her land but if she does, Wilfred will be forced to sell as well. James will do anything to hold onto his farm, and he'll get his son to go along. Betrayal, murder, madness, rats, 1922 is a breathtaking exploration into the dark side of human nature from the great American storyteller Stephen King.
