DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Narcissism is a modern epidemic, and it’s spreading rapidly. But how do you know if you are in a relationship with one—and, what can you do about it? We live in a world of romance and rescue, where many believe love will conquer all, and that the more we endure unacceptable behavior, the more likely that we can “fix” our relationships. It doesn’t always work that way—despite what the fairy tales tell us. There are a few hard facts about pathological narcissism that most people don’t know and most psychologists will never tell you. Should I Stay or Should I Go? uses checklists, clinical wisdom, and real stories from real people to prepare you for the real terrain of pathological narcissism. It raises the red flags to watch for and provides a realistic roadmap for difficult situations to help you reclaim yourself, find healing, and live an authentic and empowered life. Whether you stay. Or go.

On the outside, Sippy is the haunted one in the relationship, but as their love story unfolds, it turns out that Shay has her own secrets.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Here, for the first time in English—and from the Mexican perspective—is the story of Mexican migration to the United States and the astonishing forced repatriation of hundreds of thousands of people to Mexico during the worldwide economic crisis of the Great Depression. While Mexicans were hopeful for economic reform following the Mexican revolution, by the 1930s, large numbers of Mexican nationals had already moved north and were living in the United States in one of the twentieth century's most massive movements of migratory workers. Fernando Saul Alanis Enciso provides an illuminating backstory that demonstrates how fluid and controversial the immigration and labor situation between Mexico and the United States was in the twentieth century and continues to be in the twenty-first. When the Great Depression took hold, the United States stepped up its enforcement of immigration laws and forced more than 350,000 Mexicans, including their U.S.-born children, to return to their home country. While the Mexican government was fearful of the resulting economic implications, President Lazaro Cardenas fostered the repatriation effort for mostly symbolic reasons relating to domestic politics. In clarifying the repatriation episode through the larger history of Mexican domestic and foreign policy, Alanis connects the dots between the aftermath of the Mexican revolution and the relentless political tumult surrounding today's borderlands immigration issues.

May is a carefree girl who likes nothing better than singing along to the Spice Girls, roller blading and eating cheese on toast with her friends. But then May’s family moves to a new town and May’s world is turned upside down. Out of the blue, an imaginary friend Anna comes along to help May out of her predicament, but Anna’s ‘solutions’ only isolate May from her family and lead her into unhealthy habits.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

IF I SHOULD STAY is one of the greatest love stories between an older woman and a younger man that has ever been told. It is the love story of Sheila, a restless 50-year-old divorced empty-nester, and Dylan, a kind-hearted 18-year-old college student with artistic aspirations. Refreshingly, this love story is portrayed in a way that is real, heartfelt, sexy, and thoughtful. Why does this type of romance always involve awful stereotypes and tropes? Why is SHE always a sex-crazed cougar, a diabolical mother figure, or a desperate housewife? Why is HE always a social misfit, a shy awkward virgin, or an oedipal mama's boy? Instead, Sheila and Dylan are relatable and likeable, and their love is true. IF I SHOULD STAY is a genuine love story, unapologetically romantic, very sexy, and ultimately heartbreaking. It is also a reminder that being fully alive is rarely about being perfectly secure and comfortable. Sometimes to save yourself you must risk it all for what your heart desires. Be prepared to be swept away..
