Book Summary:

It's 2015, and Patricia Cowan is very old. "Confused today," read the notes clipped to the end of her bed. She forgets things she should know-what year it is, major events in the lives of her children. But she remembers things that don't seem possible. She remembers marrying Mark and having four children. And she remembers not marrying Mark and raising three children with Bee instead. She remembers the bomb that killed President Kennedy in 1963, and she remembers Kennedy in 1964, declining to run again after the nuclear exchange that took out Miami and Kiev. Her childhood, her years at Oxford during the Second World War-those were solid things. But after that, did she marry Mark or not? Did her friends all call her Trish, or Pat? Had she been a housewife who escaped a terrible marriage after her children were grown, or a successful travel writer with homes in Britain and Italy? And the moon outside her window: does it host a benign research station, or a command post bristling with nuclear missiles? Two lives, two worlds, two versions of modern history; each with their loves and losses, their sorrows and triumphs. Jo Walton's My Real Children is the tale of both of Patricia Cowan's lives...and of how every life means the entire world.

Book Summary:

The day Mark called, Patricia Cowan’s world split in two. The phone call. His question. Her answer. A single word. ‘Yes.’ ‘No.’ It is 2015 and Patricia Cowan is very old. ‘Confused today’ read the notes clipped to the end of her bed. Her childhood, her years at Oxford during the Second World War – those things are solid in her memory. Then that phone call and...her memory splits in two. She was Trish, a housewife and mother of four. She was Pat, a successful travel writer and mother of three. She remembers living her life as both women, so very clearly. Which memory is real – or are both just tricks of time and light? My Real Children is the story of both of Patricia Cowan’s lives – each with its loves and losses, sorrows and triumphs, its possible consequences. It is a novel about how every life means the entire world.

As the family travels west, through Virginia to Tennessee, across Oklahoma and Texas, the bonds between them begin to fray: a fissure is growing between the parents, one the children can almost feel beneath their feet. Through songs and maps and a Polaroid camera's lens, the children try to make sense of both their family's crisis and the larger one engulfing the news: the stories of thousands of kids trying to cross the southwestern border into the United States but getting detained--or lost in the desert along the way. A breath-taking feat of literary virtuosity, Lost Children Archive is timely, compassionate, subtly hilarious, and formally inventive--a powerful, urgent story about what it is to be human in an inhuman world.

Book Summary:

As any reader of Jo Walton's Among Others might guess, Walton is both an inveterate reader of SF and fantasy, and a chronic re-reader of books. In 2008, then-new science-fiction mega-site Tor.com asked Walton to blog regularly about her re-reading—about all kinds of older fantasy and SF, ranging from acknowledged classics, to guilty pleasures, to forgotten oddities and gems. These posts have consistently been among the most popular features of Tor.com. Now this volumes presents a selection of the best of them, ranging from short essays to long reassessments of some of the field's most ambitious series. Among Walton's many subjects here are the Zones of Thought novels of Vernor Vinge; the question of what genre readers mean by "mainstream"; the underappreciated SF adventures of C. J. Cherryh; the field's many approaches to time travel; the masterful science fiction of Samuel R. Delany; Salman Rushdie's Midnight's Children; the early Hainish novels of Ursula K. Le Guin; and a Robert A. Heinlein novel you have most certainly never read. Over 130 essays in all, What Makes This Book So Great is an immensely readable, engaging collection of provocative, opinionated thoughts about past and present-day fantasy and science fiction, from one of our best writers.

Book Summary:

A leading authority on adoption and an award-winning writer bring wisdom and clarity to situations important to all adoptive parents. Real Parents, Real Children goes beyond the question of when to tell children they are adopted with practical advice for parents on how to talk with their children about adoption - not just once but throughout childhood, adolescence, and into young adulthood - and how to help them through the rougher points of growing up adopted. Authors Holly van Gulden and Lisa Bartels-Rabb offer insight into how adopted children at each age commonly think and feel about being adopted. They also explain how and why adopted children grieve for their birth parents and suggest ways adoptive parents can help them come to a healthy resolution of this grief. For prospective parents, the authors discuss ways to prepare themselves and the child they are about to adopt for the new family union. Throughout, the special concerns and challenges of interracial, international, and older-child adoptions are also addressed. Though written with parents in mind, Real Parents, Real Children provides the clinical information that professional therapists, counselors, and placement workers must have if they are to truly be of help to adoptive families at every stage of their lives. Real Parents, Real Children fills a real gap in adoption literature and offers confidence and assurance as well as sought-after answers to lifelong question.

Book Summary:

Mechanic Leigh, recounts the tales of a precocious boy growing up in the 1960s. He is writing his memoirs - memories, as he calls them - with my help, the Ghost Writer. With a glib tongue and a sharp mind, Leigh embellishes his tales and creates a more acceptable world with himself, as the star. In doing so, he rewards us with belly laughs. He and his friends amuse themselves through escapades filled with mischief, defiance and hilarity - tonics to soothe the harsh realities of their desperately meager surroundings. His memoirs, sorry memories, fill us with a laugh a minute. As Leigh, living in his past, relates the stories, he engages me in the present. We banter, argue and laugh, crossing the time zones with seamless and boisterous ease. The dialogue is in script format and each episode is a standalone with a fine thread connecting and propelling the stories. Welcome to the mischievous world of Mechanic Leigh and discover a little of your youth - no matter where you grew up - in his past. I certainly did, Ghost Writer ************ My turn now. This is I, ME and MYSELF, Mechanic Leigh himself. Heh! Heh! Heh! Please always ignore the Ghost Writer. He has a serious affliction. He is an adult! Yes, now you know my problem. Like all budding authors, I thought to gain inspiration, I needed to wear strange clothes, grow a beard, take long walks in the forests, climb mountains and sit at the Dalai Lama's feet. Well, they uprooted forests to build apartments and roads, and flattened hills to reclaim land from the sea. I'm too young to grow a beard, and look rather silly when I use charcoal to shade fake beard. As for the Dalai Lama, there are already too many authors crowding around his sandaled feet. Oh, yes, they said that to be a real author, I should also fight for the environment, fight for animal rights, fight poverty, fight the system, fight for peace and fight everyone. Too much fighting for my taste. Anyway, I was already fighting - for survival. So, I chose to be an un-real author, Leigh

Book Summary:

One of the benefits of social media is getting to meet the parents of special needs children and adults. I have grown to know and truly admire these brave people. Our solitary journeys have taken many different roads, yet we've all connected on sites like Facebook, Twitter, and other forums. The support we give each other is a lifeline-an opportunity to not only share the joys our sons and daughters bring into our lives, but also the chance to rant about the frequent injustices we meet head on. I am honoured to have 'met' so many fantastic Warrior Mums from around the world, so honoured that I decided to feature some of their stories in a blog series, which I have now reproduced in this book. These mums will inspire you, just like they have me, these brave women who share their stories from childhood to motherhood and reveal far more than they normally would, in the hope their stories will help others.

Book Summary:

The first time those haunting gray eyes pinned her, they'd stared at her from the face of a creature that was supposed to only be a legend. A cliche. When Sadie VonRouge moves to Casterton, Oregon to live with her aunt, she expected a sleepy little town; the perfect backdrop for her to start piecing back together her life. She wants nothing more than a normal start to her freshman year of college. Normal is the last thing she's going to get. The night she was attacked, it'd been a wolf that chased her down. A wolf that tackled her to the ground. A wolf that began sniffing her. Then she'd opened her eyes, and she'd come face-to-face with him. But she was delusional. She knew this. There'd been no man. At least, that's what she tells herself over and over, even while fighting back the memory of how sinfully gorgeous the man had been, or how viciously he'd growled out that one word: Mine. Sadie doesn't know what is happening to her, or why she's beginning to exhibit odd symptoms after the attack. All she knows is that her world has been drastically changed. She has no idea how much, or how serious that man's claim was. Not until he comes back into her life, demanding the one thing that he owns above anything else. Her. Thrust into a new world, Sadie is going to be forced to deal with a reality she never expected. And a dominating, scary, dangerous male that might just not give her any choice but to accept her new life . . . and the fact that he comes along with it. "You belong to me. I own you. Forever.""

Book Summary:

David Kingsley is normal ten year old boy, and not a particularly popular one at that. But when he and his sister Chloe are deposited at their grandmother's house for the summer, he begins to see and hear things he never thought possible; shadows that belong to no one, and the voice of a little girl who it seems has been waiting for him. Soon, what began as a lazy, boring summer turns into a nightmare as David and Chloe find themselves in a land where the living must band together to fight back against the darkness and the one they call, The Judge. The Children Kingsley follows David and Chloe on their journey through the spirit world. For the first time in their short lives they are faced with the real possibility of death, the reality of what happens to us when we die, and the horrors one man can inflict on the many. And yet, in a world filled with fear and fright, it is here David finds his true purpose. In this novel, readers are transported to a paranormal world filled with Norse, Greek and Celtic mythology. Gothic at its core with a heavily dramatic narrative, The Children Kingsley does not shy away from the imminence of death, but instead embraces it. But at the same time, it also celebrates the enormity of life, the importance of love and the triumph of the human spirit.

Book Summary:

From Hugo, Nebula, and World Fantasy Award-winning Jo Walton comes Lent, a magical re-imagining of the man who remade fifteenth-century Florence—in all its astonishing strangeness Young Girolamo’s life is a series of miracles. It’s a miracle that he can see demons, plain as day, and that he can cast them out with the force of his will. It’s a miracle that he’s friends with Pico della Mirandola, the Count of Concordia. It’s a miracle that when Girolamo visits the deathbed of Lorenzo “the Magnificent,” the dying Medici is wreathed in celestial light, a surprise to everyone, Lorenzo included. It’s a miracle that when Charles VIII of France invades northern Italy, Girolamo meets him in the field, and convinces him to not only spare Florence but also protect it. It’s a miracle than whenever Girolamo preaches, crowds swoon. It’s a miracle that, despite the Pope’s determination to bring young Girolamo to heel, he’s still on the loose...and, now, running Florence in all but name. That’s only the beginning. Because Girolamo Savanarola is not who—or what—he thinks he is. He will discover the truth about himself at the most startling possible time. And this will be only the beginning of his many lives. "Rendered with Walton's usual power and beauty...It's this haunting character complexity that ultimately holds the reader captive to the tale." —N. K.

Book Summary:

Racial identity, or the significance and meaning that individuals attribute to race, is recognized as a key factor in how African Americans cope with racism experiences. Unfortunately, however, the few studies that have examined African Americans’ responses to racist events have failed to account for differences across situations that African Americans experience, making it difficult to ascertain whether differences in coping are due to person variables, the situation, or both. In the present study, we adopted a stress and coping approach to examine the relations among racial identity, racism-related stress appraisal, and coping with lifetime racism experiences.
