Ryan is all about trying to see the best in people, to be a good daughter, a good sister, a good friend.

And plenty of sunshine. Acclaimed author Renée Watson writes her own version of Ramona Quimby, one starring a Black girl and her family, in this start to a charming new series.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

From Newbery Honor- and Coretta Scott King Author Award-winning, New York Times bestselling author Renée Watson comes a heartwarming and inspiring middle-grade novel about finding deep roots and exploring the past, the present, and the places that make us who we are. All Amara wants for her birthday is to visit her father's family in New York City--Harlem, to be exact. She can't wait to finally meet her Grandpa Earl and cousins in person, and to stay in the brownstone where her father grew up. Maybe this will help her understand her family--and herself--in new way. But New York City is not exactly what Amara thought it would be. It's crowded, with confusing subways, suffocating sidewalks, and her father is too busy with work to spend time with her and too angry to spend time with Grandpa Earl. As she explores, asks questions, and learns more and more about Harlem and about her father and his family history, she realizes how, in some ways more than others, she connects with him, her home, and her family.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Authors Note: This book contains sexual content, explicit language, child abuse/neglect and other content that readers may find offensive. Not for readers under 18 years of age. Told through Shame's point of view, the final installment of the Lights of Peril MC takes place on the 'implied' wedding day. Shame is plagued with doubts surrounding his love for Mace. He loves her. He's loved her since she was five years old, but feels he doesn't deserve her. This uncertainty is surfacing while struggling to forget the loss of his tragic childhood. "What if the trigger has already been set and I'm going to wake up one day and realize I'm my parent's son in their way of evil? The thought sickens me. I'm no good without Mace. I never have been. She's the one person in my life I would refuse to live without. If I ever treated her and Ryder like my father treated my mother and I, it would make for an easy decision. I would kill myself." Shame's childhood wasn't filled with happiness and love. It was heart wrenching, and abusive. Used by his father and resented by his mother, a young Neil struggles through his days waiting for an escape; a savior. "As he seethes his anger onto me I feel the spit from his words land on my face and in it I smell his whiskey and coke coming down like rain over my blissful day. I'm working for them now. I'm nine and I've just been interviewed and hired for my very first job... running drugs." Once meeting Doc, Lynda, Mace, Hem, and Sadey - his life changes from desolate to hopeful. "At just five years old, she found her way into my heart and loved me in a way I never thought I could be loved. All that was before I ever even knew I needed her. " Throughout the story you learn why Shame has become the person that he is. Intense, raw, powerful, and most of all - protective of those he loves the most. In the end he finds himself surrounded by everything he had ever hoped for. "The storms I waited out were violent and unstable, but once finding them I found the unconditional love that I'd ached for in my search for them. It's in this moment, among the sounds of monitors and babies crying and the feel of Mace in my arms, holding me tight, just as she always had, that I realize - I am finally well and truly home."

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

You can say I had it all. The fancy house, top of the line car, lots of friends and more money than anyone could ever imagine. On the outside, we were the perfect family. No one knew about my abusive father and my mother who drank herself into oblivion every night. My name is Karly and I have scars, deep scars that no one knows about, and when my parents died I was left alone and on my own, to fight through life with no help. When it came to life and happiness, I had it all until my world was turned upside down. My name is Nicholas and my wife, the love of my life, left me and our new baby girl without as much as an explanation. I didn't want to accept it, but after our divorce was final and four long years passed, I started to lose hope that she'd ever come back. Emma was growing so fast and I needed help. My sister recommended that I hire her friend, Karly, as Emma's nanny. I took a chance on bringing another woman into my little girl's life. Did I do the right thing? As many days and nights are spent together, feelings can no longer be denied and a relationship is formed. Life is about taking chances and learning how to fall, but when the past comes back, will they be strong enough to fight through and trust each other? Or will all they worked for fall apart?

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Only three things matter to Kelsey Fry: an envelope full of memories, a pink box full of hope, and a well-planned future, soon to be realized. Alex Dosek knows that Kelsey needs more than the tattoo he gave her. She hoped to ink the memory of the daughter she gave up for adoption into her soul, but that wasn't necessary. The memories were already there. Who would have thought a house full of boys would be a refuge for Kelsey? The Baxter boys come to Kelsey's rescue and all is well, but the past has a way of catching up with you, and Kelsey's past reaches out with a phone call. The daughter she gave up for adoption is sick, and she needs something only Kelsey can give her. It won't be easy, but it will be necessary. Kelsey will look into the eyes of her daughter and then walk away, and take nothing with her but the letters she writes to her daughter on every holiday and every special occasion. In the evening, when she can't sleep, she pours out her heart on paper. When her daughter turns eighteen, Kelsey can reach out to her. Those are the rules. Not a moment before. But sometimes, the fates intervene. Or friends do. Call it what you will. Karma and balance. Prices are paid. The only thing left for Kelsey is Alex. The only thing Alex wants is Kelsey

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Moms are eager for tips and wisdom to help them build strong relationships with their daughters, and Kari Kampakis’s Love Her Well gives them ten practical ways to do so, not by changing their daughters but by changing their own thoughts, actions, and mind-set. For many women, having a baby girl is a dream come true. Yet as girls grow up, the narrative of innocence and joy changes to gloom and doom as moms are told, “Just wait until she’s a teenager!” and handed a disheartening script that treats a teenage girl’s final years at home as solely a season to survive. Author and blogger Kari Kampakis suggests it’s time to change the narrative and mind-set that lead moms to parent teen girls with a spirit of defeat, not strength. By improving the foundation, habits, and dynamics of the relationship, mothers can connect with their teen daughters and earn a voice in their lives that allows moms to offer guidance, love, wisdom, and emotional support. As a mom of four daughters (three of whom are teenagers), Kari has learned the hard way that as girls grow up, mothers must grow up too. In Love Her Well, Kari shares ten ways that moms can better connect with their daughters in a challenging season, including: choosing their words and timing carefully, listening and empathizing with her teen’s world, seeing the good and loving her for who she is, taking care of themselves and having a support system, and more. This book isn’t a guide to help mothers “fix” their daughters or make them behave. Rather, it’s about a mom’s journey, doing the heart work and legwork necessary to love a teenager while still being a strong, steady parent. Kari explores how every relationship consists of two imperfect sinners, and teenagers gain more respect for their parents when they admit (and learn from) their mistakes, apologize, listen, give grace, and try to understand their teens’ point of view. Yes, teenagers need rules and consequences, but without a connected relationship, parents may never gain a significant voice in their lives or be a safe place they long to return to. By admitting her personal failures and prideful mistakes that have hurt her relationships with her teenage daughters, Kari gives mothers hope and reminds them all things are possible through God. By leaning on him, mothers gain the wisdom, guidance, protection, and clarity they need to grow strong relationships with their daughters at every age, especially during the critical teen years.
