The Hearts We Sold

Dee Moreno is out of options. Her home life sucks (to put it mildly), and she's about to get booted from her boarding school--the only place she's ever felt free--for lack of funds. But this is a world where demons exist, and the demons are there to make deals: one human body part in exchange for one wish come true. When Dee finally summons the courage to make a deal with one of these devils, she finds it may be more than she bargained for. The demon she approaches quickly informs her that he doesn't trade in the usual appendages, he's only interested in her heart. He'll put her body in a kind of stasis for two years, and she'll become part of his crew of "heartless"--teen soldiers sent to the demons' home world to fight their enemies. All of the heartless have their reasons for making this deal, but it begs the question: what are you willing to give up to achieve your heart's desire?A Faustian blend of sci-fi and paranormal horror, The Hearts We Sold is thrilling adventure with a romantic twist that will steal readers' hearts and then break them

The Paper Bag Christmas

Kevin Alan Milne
Authors:
Kevin Alan Milne

A heart-tugging tale of a boy and a troubled little girl who discover that the true spirit of Christmas is alive and well in the hearts of those who earnestly seek it. Dr. Christopher Ringle is the last person you'd expect to find moonlighting as Santa Claus at the mall on the day after Thanksgiving. But it is there that he meets a young man named Molar Alan, who desperately needs a new perspective on the underlying value of Christmas. Dr. Ringle recruits Mo and his older brother as volunteers at a nearby children's hospital for the holiday season. At the hospital, Mo is tasked to help bring holiday cheer to the young cancer patients on the fifth floor. His biggest challenge is befriending a decidedly angry girl who is so embarrassed by her scarred appearance that she hides her face behind the safety of a paper bag. Almost in spite of himself, Mo finds that Christmas joy emanates from a source far greater than the North Pole, while the young girl learns that she is more beautiful than she had ever imagined.

'I couldn't put this book down. Whip smart, hilariously funny and shocking. A must-read'Amy Chua, Yale Law Professor and author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger MotherIn 2009, Lenora Chu, her husband Rob, and toddler Rainey, moved from LA to the Chinese megacity Shanghai. The US economy was spinning circles, while China seemed to be eating the planet's economic lunch. What's more, Shanghai teenagers were top in the world at maths, reading and science. China was not only muscling the rest of the world onto the sidelines, but it was also out-educating the West. So when Rainey was given the opportunity to enroll in Shanghai's most elite public kindergarten, Lenora and Rob grabbed it. Noticing her rambunctious son's rapid transformation - increasingly disciplined and obedient but more anxious and fearful - Lenora begins to question the system. What the teachers were accomplishing was indisputable, but what to make of their methods? Are Chinese children paying a price for their obedience and the promise of future academic prowess? How much discipline is too much? And is the Chinese education system really what the West should measure itself against? While Rainey was at school, Lenora embarked on a reporting mission to answer these questions in a larger context. Through a combination of the personal narratives and thoughts of teachers, parents, administrators and school children, Little Soldiers unpacks the story of education in China.

Sunyata

Betty Camhi, Elliot Isenberg
Authors:
Betty Camhi, Elliot Isenberg

When Emmanuel Sorensen visited Ramana Maharshi in southern India, he was recognized by this sage as "one of the rare-born mystics." It was during Emmanuel's third visit to Ramana in 1940 that while he was just sitting quietly in meditation, he awared an effulgence especially radiated and directed upon his form. Suddenly out of the Silence came a telepathic message from Ramana in the form of these five English words: We Are Always Aware Sunyata. Emmanuel took Ramana's five words as recognition, initiation, mantra, and name. Thereafter, he referred to both himself and the hut in which he lived as Sunyata-which he translated as "full solid emptiness."Adyashanti writes: "Sunyata was the rarest of incarnations. A naturally born enlightened being of singular uniqueness and inventiveness. The story of his life is itself a profound spiritual teaching and a living example of how awakened spirit moves through the challenges of life. This is one of the best books on authentic enlightenment that you will ever read."From the book: "I am not interested in what men can say with words-I am interested only in what they can say with their Silence. You must realize that men who talk very well, and who utter beautiful speeches, usually have a very bad Silence. What is really important is Silence, for it is a preparation for the Great Silence. Step by step as thou goeth, the Way shall open up to thee-thou art the Tao."

Gringa

Melissa Hart
Authors:
Melissa Hart

Torn between the high socioeconomic status of her father and the bohemian lifestyle of her mother, Melissa Hart tells a compelling story of contradiction in this coming-of-age memoir. Set in 1970s Southern California, Gringa is the story of a young girl conflicted by two extremes. On the one hand there's life with her mother, who leaves her father to begin a lesbian relationship, taking Hart and her two siblings along. Hart tells of her mom's new life in a Hispanic neighbourhood of Oxnard, California, and how these new surroundings begin to positively shape Hart herself. At the opposite extreme is her father's white-bread well-to-do security, which is predictable and stable and boring. Hart is made all the more fraught with frustration when a judge rules that being raised by two women is unnatural" and grants her father primary custody. Hart weaves a powerful story of fleeting moments with her mother, of her unfolding adoration of Oxnard's Latino culture, and of the ways in which she's moulded by the polarity of her parents' worldviews. Hart is faced with opposing ideals, caught between what she is supposed" to want and what she actually desires. Gringa offers a touching, reflective look at one girl's struggle with the dichotomies of class, culture, and sexuality.
