Book Review & Summary:

“[A] charming, funny, touching, and relevant comedy.” —The Boston Globe “A provocative yet sweet romantic comedy.” —People, Best of Fall 2020 This warm, wise, highly entertaining twenty-first century love story is about what happens when the person who makes you happiest is someone you never expected Lucy used to handle her adult romantic life according to the script she'd been handed. She met a guy just like herself: same age, same background, same hopes and dreams; they got married and started a family. Too bad he made her miserable. Now, two decades later, she's a nearly-divorced, forty-one-year-old schoolteacher with two school-aged sons, and there is no script anymore. So when she meets Joseph, she isn't exactly looking for love--she's more in the market for a babysitter. Joseph is twenty-two, living at home with his mother, and working several jobs, including the butcher counter where he and Lucy meet. It's not a match anyone one could have predicted. He's of a different class, a different culture, and a different generation. But sometimes it turns out that the person who can make you happiest is the one you least expect, though it can take some maneuvering to see it through. Just Like You is a brilliantly observed, tender, but also brutally funny new novel that gets to the heart of what it means to fall surprisingly and headlong in love with the best possible person--someone you didn't see coming.

Book Summary:

The novel I'm Just Like You is a veritable humanitarian scream against discrimination in all its forms, whether religious or racial, reaffirming our common humanity wherever and whenever we may be.The happenings of the novel take place in Manhattan and Brooklyn, in New York, in a refined and humane context coupled with a delicate handling of human emotions that steadfastly reject racial discrimination. The novel is, in effect, a real-world embodiment of the pains of human beings and their struggle to survive, no matter the cruelties of fate. There is Fran, who dies young because of cancer, leaving her two daughters, Jessica and Sarah, alone in this world. Jessica has to sacrifice, giving up her dreams of becoming a musician, leaving Brooklyn Academy and entering the unforgiving world to spend on her younger sister Sarah, who is in medical school. Then events take on a whole new direction as the ugly reality of racial discrimination is exposed, embodied in the figure of Mike, the black American that Jessica befriends then falls in love with and marries. And she does this despite the warnings of her sister, on account of her own fiancée, the very racist Kevin, also her colleague at medical school, someone who makes it clear that he does not want this relationship consummated. But Jessica has made her mind up and marries Mike and gives birth to Adam, who is born black himself, having to face the same pains as his father. That's when the real struggle begins, and continues even after Mike and Jessica are killed in a tragic car accident. Adam inherits the same pains of racism, especially at the hands of Kevin, his aunt's husband, and at the hands of Richard, the father of the white girl he falls in love with. She falls in love with him too.Nonetheless, Adam perseveres in the face of it all, the racism and the struggle, thanks to the support of his aunt, Sarah, raising him as her son after Jessica's death, encouraging him and his own musical talents and ambitions and against her husband Kevin' machinations. It almost drivers her and Kevin apart but she persists and enrols Adam in the American musical talent contest, following in the steps of his mother. When he sings he dazzles the audience into tears with the sincerity of his plight, the suffering and triumph they can hear in his voice. He wins the contest and a disc of his song is issued, setting him on the path to becoming a celebrity, and it is here that Kevin realises how wrong he was. He failed in raising his own son and becomes a cripple and surrenders to Adam's victory. Richard also succumbs to Adam's success as a singer and accepts that Adam and Nancy will marry. In this way I'm Just Like You narrates human values we are all sorely in need of, highlighting all too clearly the difference between what is right and what is wrong and the struggle between them, in the context human affairs. The novel also puts forth values that should predominate in our lives, not just in own native communities but in the world as a whole. Thus, this novel draws out tears and moans from within our breasts from the rollercoaster of human emotions and the tragic chain of events and pains. The narrative draws out of us all our own reminiscences and sorrows, infusing itself with the reality of American society, or any society for that matter, provided it suffers from discrimination. Not that the story is distant from the realities of America, cataloguing some aspects of social struggle centred round race or class that still exist in certain quarters of American society. It does this through a work of fiction, a romantic tale, zeroing in on the social dialectic, relations governed by conflict, whether the war of ideas or social conflict. The novel reveals the intellectual pedigree of both sides to the conflict, via narrative constructions and techniques, in addition to the dramatic elements in the story, such as the clear struggle that pervades every page of the story line.

2019 The Washington Post Best Children’s Book of the Year (Erin Entrada Kelly Pick) A 2020 ALA Notable Children’s Book “The novel’s all-too-familiar scenario offers a springboard for discussion among middle schoolers…Easily grasped scenarios and short chapters help make this timely #MeToo story accessible to a wide audience.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) “Realistic and heartbreaking.” —BCCB Barbara Dee explores the subject of #MeToo for the middle grade audience in this heart-wrenching—and ultimately uplifting—novel about experiencing harassment and unwanted attention from classmates. For seventh-grader Mila, it starts with some boys giving her an unwanted hug on the school blacktop. A few days later, at recess, one of the boys (and fellow trumpet player) Callum tells Mila it’s his birthday, and asks her for a “birthday hug.” He’s just being friendly, isn’t he? And how can she say no? But Callum’s hug lasts a few seconds too long, and feels…weird. According to her friend, Zara, Mila is being immature and overreacting. Doesn’t she know what flirting looks like? But the boys don’t leave Mila alone. On the bus. In the halls. During band practice—the one place Mila could always escape. It doesn’t feel like flirting—so what is it? Thanks to a chance meeting, Mila begins to find solace in a new place: karate class. Slowly, with the help of a fellow classmate, Mila learns how to stand her ground and how to respect others—and herself. From the author of Everything I Know About You, Halfway Normal, and Star-Crossed comes this timely story of a middle school girl standing up and finding her voice.

Book Summary:

A New York Times Best Seller! By the actress, writer, and one of the funniest women on Twitter, an outrageous, hysterical memoir of acting on impulse, plotting elaborate hoaxes, and refusing to acknowledge boundaries in any form Jenny Mollen is an actress and writer living in Los Angeles. She is also a wife, married to a famous guy (which is annoying only because he gets free shit and she doesn't). She doesn't want much from life. Just to be loved—by everybody: her parents, her dogs, her ex-boyfriends, her ex-boyfriends' dogs, her husband, her husband's ex-girlfriends, her husband's ex-girlfriend's new boyfriends, etc. Some people might call that impulse crazy, but isn't "crazy" really just a word boring people use to describe fun people? (And Jenny is really, really fun, you guys!) In these pages, you'll find stories of Jenny at her most genuine, whether it's stalking her therapist (because he knows everything about her so shouldn't she get to know everything about him?); throwing a bachelorette party so bad that one of the guests is suspected dead; or answering the eternal question, Would your best friend blow your husband on a car ride to dinner if she didn't know you were hiding in the backseat? I Like You Just the Way I Am is about not doing the right thing—about indulging your inner crazy-person. It is Jenny when she's not trying to impress anyone or come across as a responsible, level-headed member of society. With any luck it will make you better acquainted with who you really are and what you really want. Which, let's be honest, is most likely someone else's email password.

Book Summary:

A comedy for our times" (The Guardian), Middle England is a piercing and provocative novel about a country in crisis. From the frenzy of the 2012 Olympics to the aftermath of the Brexit referendum, here Jonathan Coe chronicles the story of modern Britain by way of a cast of characters whose world is being upended. There are newlyweds who disagree about the country's future and, possibly, their relationship; a political commentator who writes impassioned columns about austerity from his lavish town house while his radical teenage daughter undertakes a relentless quest for universal justice; and Benjamin Trotter, who embarks on an apparently doomed new career in middle age, and his father, whose last wish is to vote to leave the European Union. A sequel to The Rotters' Club and The Closed Circle that stands entirely alone, Middle England is a darkly comic look at our strange new world.

Joe is no stranger to hiding bodies. In the past ten years, this thirty-something has buried four of them, collateral damage in his quest for love. Now he’s heading west to Los Angeles, the city of second chances, determined to put his past behind him. In Hollywood, Joe blends in effortlessly with the other young upstarts. He eats guac, works in a bookstore, and flirts with a journalist neighbor. But while others seem fixated on their own reflections, Joe can’t stop looking over his shoulder. The problem with hidden bodies is that they don’t always stay that way. They reemerge, like dark thoughts, multiplying and threatening to destroy what Joe wants most: true love. And when he finds it in a darkened room in Soho House, he’s more desperate than ever to keep his secrets buried. He doesn’t want to hurt his new girlfriend—he wants to be with her forever. But if she ever finds out what he’s done, he may not have a choice…
