A Short History of the Girl Next Door

Original Synopsis

"A Short History of the Girl Next Door has a total of 272 pages which are papers from writer 'Jared Reck'. Equal parts hilarious and heartbreaking, this unrequited love story will appeal to fans of Jennifer Niven, John Green, and Jesse Andrews. Seriously, how can you see a person nearly every day of your life and never think a thing of it, then all of a sudden, one day, it’s different? You see that goofy grin a thousand times and just laugh. But goofy grin #1,001 nearly stops your heart? Right. That sounds like a bad movie already. Matt Wainwright is constantly sabotaged by the overdramatic movie director in his head. He can’t tell his best friend, Tabby, how he really feels about her, he implodes on the JV basketball team, and the only place he feels normal is in Mr. Ellis’s English class, discussing the greatest fart scenes in literature and writing poems about pissed-off candy-cane lumberjacks. If this were a movie, everything would work out perfectly. Tabby would discover that Matt’s madly in love with her, be overcome with emotion, and would fall into his arms. Maybe in the rain. But that’s not how it works. Matt watches Tabby get swept away by senior basketball star and all-around great guy Liam Branson. Losing Tabby to Branson is bad enough, but screwing up and losing her as a friend is even worse. After a tragic accident, Matt finds himself left on the sidelines, on the verge of spiraling out of control and losing everything that matters to him. From debut author Jared Reck comes a fiercely funny and heart-wrenching novel about love, longing, and what happens when life as you know it changes in an instant. “This story broke my heart and made me laugh and gave me hope—and really, what more can you ask of a book than that? I loved it, and I have a feeling you will too.” —Jennifer E. Smith, author of Windfall and The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight “In the blink of an eye, A Short History of the Girl Next Door goes from hilarious to haunting to harrowing to heartbreaking to hopeful and back. You’ll never be sure exactly what kind of tears you’re crying. The riotously funny and achingly authentic voice of this gorgeous coming-of-age story will break your heart, but have no fear: it will piece it back together with the glue of love, hope, and humor, and it will be stronger than before.” —Jeff Zentner, award-winning author of The Serpent King and Goodbye Days “A Short History of the Girl Next Door is a study in paradoxes. It’s laced with both sarcasm and yearning; it’s spit-out-your-drink funny and empty-the-tissue-box sad. Sharp, smart, and unforgettable, this book will make you want to drive down the court, basketball thudding from your hand, both glad and heartbroken to be alive.” —Kate Hattemer, critically acclaimed author of The Vigilante Poets of Selwyn Academy and The Land of 10,000 Madonnas "A powerful novel about first love, the intimacy of childhood friendships, and moving forward from loss, after unexpected tragedy strikes. Reck’s novel is sure to provoke reflection about finding meaning amid life’s unforeseeable tragedies."—Publishers Weekly "Pair this with other novels that explore loss from a male perspective, such as Jeff Zetner’s Goodbye Days or Adam Silvera’s History is All You Left Me."—Booklist "Reck gives subtlety and depth to Matt, so he’s believable as a flawed guy negotiating his way through his feelings for Tabby as well as his social status in school, his ideas of masculinity, and his insecurities."--The Bulletin "Recommend this to readers who enjoyed Steven Levenson’s Dear Evan Hansen."--VOYA 2017-09-26 time of publication of the book, [-Knopf Books for Young Readers-]"

In the four years Heather Ford had known Kitty McClain there had been one mystery about the kindly older woman which no one spoke of or even speculated about. The most striking thing about Kitty, which seemed to set her apart from even the most emancipated free spirit was a tattoo of a naked woman in bondage with the inscription, -her MASTER'S VOICE- underscoring it, that was proudly displayed on her left shoulder. And finally, at a neighborhood Fourth of July party, Heather takes it upon herself to ask a question which the answer to will begin to forever change her world. Kitty McClain, the Georgia peachy, girl next door, is much more than she seems, and as she begins to relate the history of her life in the BDSM lifestyle, Heather finds herself on a journey to understand why she feels her life is suddenly incomplete.

A Short History of Women

Original Synopsis

"A Short History of Women has a total of 256 pages which are papers from writer 'Kate Walbert'. NOMINATED FOR THE LOS ANGELES TIMES BOOK PRIZE A profoundly moving portrait of the complicated legacies of mothers and daughters, A Short History of Women chronicles five generations of women from the close of the nineteenth century through the early years of the twenty-first. Beginning in 1914 at the deathbed of Dorothy Trevor Townsend, a suffragette who starves herself for the cause, the novel traces the echoes of her choice in the stories of her descendants—a brilliant daughter who tries to escape the burden of her mother’s infamy; a granddaughter who chooses a conventional path, only to find herself disillusioned; a great-granddaughter who wryly articulates the free-floating anxiety of post-9/11 Manhattan. In a kaleidoscope of characters and with a richness of imagery, emotion, and wit, A Short History of Women is a thought-provoking and vividly original narrative that crisscrosses a century—a book for "any woman who has ever struggled to find her own voice; to make sense of being a mother, wife, daughter, and lover" (Associated Press). 2009-06-16 time of publication of the book, [-Simon and Schuster-]"

A Brief History of Seven Killings

Original Synopsis

"A Brief History of Seven Killings has a total of 704 pages which are papers from writer 'Marlon James'. Winner of the 2015 Man Booker Prize A recipient of the 2015 American Book Award One of the Top 10 Books of 2014 – Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times A New York Times Book Review Notable Book Named a best book of the year by: The New York Times Chicago Tribune The Washington Post The Boston Globe Time Newsweek The Huffington Post The Seattle Times The Houston Chronicle Publishers Weekly Library Journal Popsugar BookPage BuzzFeed Books Salon Kansas City Star L Magazine From the acclaimed author of The Book of Night Women comes a “musical, electric, fantastically profane” (The New York Times) epic that explores the tumultuous world of Jamaica over the past three decades. In A Brief History of Seven Killings, Marlon James combines brilliant storytelling with his unrivaled skills of characterization and meticulous eye for detail to forge an enthralling novel of dazzling ambition and scope. On December 3, 1976, just before the Jamaican general election and two days before Bob Marley was to play the Smile Jamaica Concert to ease political tensions in Kingston, seven gunmen stormed the singer’s house, machine guns blazing. The attack wounded Marley, his wife, and his manager, and injured several others. Little was officially released about the gunmen, but much has been whispered, gossiped and sung about in the streets of West Kingston. Rumors abound regarding the assassins’ fates, and there are suspicions that the attack was politically motivated. A Brief History of Seven Killings delves deep into that dangerous and unstable time in Jamaica’s history and beyond. James deftly chronicles the lives of a host of unforgettable characters – gunmen, drug dealers, one-night stands, CIA agents, even ghosts – over the course of thirty years as they roam the streets of 1970s Kingston, dominate the crack houses of 1980s New York, and ultimately reemerge into the radically altered Jamaica of the 1990s. Along the way, they learn that evil does indeed cast long shadows, that justice and retribution are inextricably linked, and that no one can truly escape his fate. Gripping and inventive, shocking and irresistible, A Brief History of Seven Killings is a mesmerizing modern classic of power, mystery, and insight.

Cress Delahanty

Original Synopsis

"Cress Delahanty has a total of 167 pages which are papers from writer 'Jessamyn West'. The tenderly funny story of a modern girl’s growing up. Cress Delahanty, growing up on a California ranch, might have been you at sixteen, your teenage daughter or niece, or the girl next door. You will watch her progress, as her parents did, with amusement and an occasional touch of exasperation and a twinge of heartache at the memory of your own growing pains. She’s the girl who invented Delahanty’s Law for Saving Time. The high-school kid who decided craziness would be her trademark. The love-smitten adolescent who found a unique way to attract the boys. Not since Penrod—that classic by another Indiana author—has the magic, the humor and the seriousness of adolescence been so warmly and sympathetically portrayed in an American novel. “An enchanting novel...those still capable of feeling the absurdity and the beauty of growing up will find it a book well worth treasuring in that library of libraries, the heart.”—CLIFTON FADIMAN, The book-of-the-Month Club News “Cress Delahanty has all the makings of a classic.”—Hartford Courant “An extraordinarily engaging, humorous and touching book about a teenage girl.”—The New York Times “It does for an adolescent girl what Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye did for her male counterpart.”—Los Angeles Mirror 2016-10-27 time of publication of the book, [-Pickle Partners Publishing-]"
