A brilliant and touching romantic comedy from the USA Today bestselling author of The Friend Zone and The Happy Ever After Playlist. When Vanessa Price quit her job to pursue her dream of traveling the globe, she wasn't expecting to gain millions of YouTube followers who shared her joy of seizing every moment. For her, living each day to its fullest isn't just a motto. Her mother and sister never saw the age of 30, and Vanessa doesn't want to take anything for granted. But after her half sister suddenly leaves Vanessa in custody of her baby daughter, life goes from "daily adventure" to "next-level bad" (now with bonus baby vomit in hair). The last person Vanessa expects to show up offering help is the hot lawyer next door, Adrian Copeland. After all, she barely knows him. No one warned her that he was the Secret Baby Tamer or that she'd be spending a whole lot of time with him and his geriatric Chihuahua. Now she's feeling things she's vowed not to feel. Because the only thing worse than falling for Adrian is finding a little hope for a future she may never see.

For many of us, the word "religious" evokes thoughts of brainwashing, violence and eye-rubbingly tiresome conversations. Why not be done with it? Combining wit and candor with sharp cultural observations, David Dark flips the script on religiosity, arguing that "If what we believe is what we see is what we do is who we are, there's no getting away from religion."

During childhood, we are unaware of the power we have to change someone's life. That sometimes, we as children need to take matters into our own hands to save someone we love. On January 18, 1976, I saved two people. I saved my mother (an alcoholic) and I saved myself. A few weeks before that night, a guardian angel gave me a glimpse into how our lives could be if she would just stop drinking. From the age of five until the age of ten, our roles were reversed. I was the adult and she was the child and after that night, the tides began to turn and our new relationship had begun.

"Exciting, heartbreaking, and far from ordinary." --Kirkus Emily Henry is "one of YA's preeminent voices....an exquisite, genre-bending novel. --Booklist The Serpent King meets Stranger Things in Emily Henry's gripping novel about a group of friends in a small town who find themselves dealing with unexpected powers after a cosmic event. Almost everyone in the small town of Splendor, Ohio, was affected when the local steel mill exploded. If you weren't a casualty of the accident yourself, chances are a loved one was. That's the case for seventeen-year-old Franny, who, five years after the explosion, still has to stand by and do nothing as her brother lies in a coma. In the wake of the tragedy, Franny found solace in a group of friends whose experiences mirrored her own. The group calls themselves The Ordinary, and they spend their free time investigating local ghost stories and legends, filming their exploits for their small following of YouTube fans. It's silly, it's fun, and it keeps them from dwelling on the sadness that surrounds them. Until one evening, when the strange and dangerous thing they film isn't fiction--it's a bright light, something massive hurtling toward them from the sky. And when it crashes and the teens go to investigate...everything changes.

Part inspirational rallying call, part first-person, autobiographical narrative, part eulogy for a treasured friend and mentor, "Life's Too Short for Leftovers" takes the reader on a highly personal journey of self-discovery. Best-selling author Michael Ditchfield's "9 Lessons from a Third World Kitchen" - cleverly presented as courses on a menu - conveys a singular perspective on what it means to be human, and what is required of us as individuals to be active, engaged participants in humanity. With delightfully dry wit and profound understanding, Best selling author, Michael Ditchfield introduces us to Chef Noel Cunningham - his guide and teacher - along with a kitchen-full of congenial and extraordinarily noble real-life protagonists that have served as both lightning rods and light posts in the author's relentless (albeit sometimes reluctant) pathway toward personal transformation. Ditchfield is a master storyteller, and his conversational style skillfully relates timeless philosophies to contemporary challenges and opportunities that face Third World countries today. Based on his extensive experience in Africa, Ditchfield brings a generous portion of lucid insights and aha moments to the table, leading the charge toward improved, positive outcomes - in our own lives, and in the lives of others. "Life's Too Short for Leftovers" is a stimulating and memorable must-read for students of Life.
