"Beautiful sequel to the above. This lovely book continues the story of the son, now grown and in medical school, but still struggling with the tragedy of his mother's sickness and his own purpose in life."
"A great and moving book about sexual identity and true friendship. Ramie is shocked when her best friend Jessica reveals that she's a lesbian; as a Christian, she doesn't know how to handle it and cruelly rejects her like other students. But as she looks more and more to God, she realizes that she can't abandon her, and has to learn to reconcile her beliefs with helping Jessica through her pain"
"Touching and well-made book, written in the form of a class journal shared by friends. Three close girls thought they'd be friends forever, but struggles with ambition, family and education tear at their bonds."
"After moving back to California, Dawn (from the Baby-sitters Club) faces a new life and new problems. This wonderfully written and poignant diary expresses her struggles with a grieving friend, her father, and her own changes as a person"
"A zesty guide to cooking from four sassy women. Along with recipes, this book includes excerpts from the show. I actually don't like this TV show at all, but I do love fun cookbooks! Plus, a little of these women goes a long way.."
"Trust me: any and all chauvinism in this book is purely a joke. This delicious and hilarious book advises men on cooking and romancing, with all sorts of examples amd unique situations. Enjoy this book, preferably with a partner. I'd suggest skipping the introduction, though."
"Complex and haunting horror novel, consisting of more than one story. The first story is of a haunted house, written in the form of research files, and the second story is of the man researching the house; his story is told in the form of his notes."
"This beautiful tale is about two young people who have nearly lost hope with their lives, until a chance meeting sets them on the journey to miraculous change. Both struggling in work and family, they learn that a new road can change everything. Heart-warming"
"A heartbreaking and striking book with three stories, all about young adults struggling with love for people with terminal illness or unusual disorders. PS: Do NOT read the professional reviews on this book's product page. They give away everything"
"Beautiful and lively collection of poems, featuring works from the unusual to the poignant. Celebrates the different parts of women's lives, from motherhood and independence to loving men. Inspite of the cynical title, this book does not at all shun men. It features many works about how dear sons and lovers are, in fact."
"Beautiful little collection of witty fantasy stories, with romantic and feminist themes. The ones I recommend are "Touk's House" a retelling of Rapunzel, "Buttercups" about a young woman struggling in a new life, and the title story, with a modern heroine and a gift of magic."
