Ein großer Sportplatz, freundliche Klassenzimmer und getrennte Schlafsäle für Jungen und Mädchen – auf den ersten Blick scheint Hailsham ein ganz gewöhnliches englisches Internat zu sein. Aber die Lehrer, so engagiert und freundlich sie auch sind, heißen hier Aufseher, und sie lassen die Kinder früh spüren, dass sie für eine besondere Zukunft ausersehen sind. Dieses Gefühl hält Kathy, Ruth und Tommy durch alle Stürme der Pubertät und Verwirrungen der Liebe zusammen – bis es an der Zeit ist, ihrer wahren Bestimmung zu folgen.

Ja, ich habe Depressionen. Hinter mir liegt ein langer, steiniger Weg. Und auch vor mir türmen sich immer noch Berge und reißen Schluchten auf, die es zu überwinden gilt. Durchlaufen Sie mit mir eine Zeit, in der ich ganz unten im Tal, und dem Tod näher als dem Leben war. Und mich doch wieder aufgerappelt habe und die felsigen Klippen emporgeklettert bin. Ein Buch über das Verzweifeln und Hoffnungsschöpfen, vom Anfang und vom Ende. Und von der Kunst, sich doch nicht aufzugeben.

Anne Claire Poirier, renowned French-Canadian director, lost Yanne, her 26-year-old daughter, when she was strangled in a drug-related altercation. In this haunting and poetic work, Poirier unearths her daughter's past in an effort to understand her, find a voice for her grief, and learn what pushes young people to risk their lives for the drugs they believe will set them free. Originally the narration to Poirier's film by the same name, the text is at once deeply personal and socially attuned, a brilliant demonstration of an artist's ability to transform pain into dialogue.

Some people spend their whole lives looking for the right partner. Nate Schaper found his in high school. In the eight months since their cautious flirting became a real, heart-pounding, tell-the-parents relationship, Nate and Adam have been inseparable. Even when local kids take their homophobia to brutal levels, Nate is undaunted. He and Adam are rock solid. Two parts of a whole. Yin and yang. But when Adam graduates and takes an off-Broadway job in New York--at Nate's insistence--that certainty begins to flicker. Nate's friends can't keep his insecurities at bay, especially when he catches Skyped glimpses of Adam's shirtless roommate. Nate starts a blog to vent his frustrations and becomes the center of a school controversy, drawing ire and support in equal amounts. But it's the attention of a new boy who is looking for more than guidance that forces him to confront who and what he really wants. Tender, thoughtful, and unflinchingly real, Don't Let Me Go is a witty and beautifully written account of young love, long-distance relationships, and learning to follow your heart. "Don't Let Me Go is a charming story. Trumble's love for the characters is evident on every page, and it's contagious." -- Robin Reardon, author of A Secret Edge

She and her nearly four-year-old daughter, Chloe, have started over, with the help of Charlotte’s birth mother, Anna, who has recently reentered Charlotte’s life after a twenty-six-year absence. Little Chloe is thriving in her new home, and despite lingering effects from a terrible trauma Chloe has suffered, Charlotte is hopeful that love will pull her through. And though their relationship is tentative, Charlotte and Anna are slowly rebuilding their trust after nearly a lifetime apart. But the horrors of the past—both recent and long buried—are never far from Charlotte’s mind. And then their idyll is suddenly shattered, as a series of events is set in motion that Charlotte can neither control nor comprehend.

This book is about my exciting and wonderful career in the United States Air Force. I listed my various assignment in the order in which they occurred and outlined the major events in my life while at each base. Every assignment had a lot of good points and some that wasn't that great but I tried to focus on the exciting things. A large portion of the book deals with my assignments in Vietnam and events that still haunt me today. The events in the book start when I was a senior in high school trying to talk my Mother into giving me permission to enlist just as soon as I turn 17 years old. I also wrote about some of the interesting things while in high school and about my large family. I felt that it might be of interest to the reader to know that between all my brothers and I we accumulated over 170 years of military service to our country. I ended the book with some events that happened while I was teaching and the jetliner that I observed on 10 Sep 01 practicing for the flight across southern Pennsylvania that crashed on 9/11.
