Price may vary by retailer. Add to Cart Add to Cart. About The Book. It was my last summer here in Rosemary Beach. I was already feeling the suffocating presence of my father and his plans for me. Yale this, Yale that. Goddamn Yale. I wanted to be on my Harley. I wanted another fucking tattoo.

I wanted to feel the wind in my hair and know I had nowhere I had to be. That life was free. I was free. Before this summer was over, I was going to ride off without a word. Leave behind the money and power that came with being a Newark and find my path. I would never fit in here. That was another reason I had to get the fuck out of here. My mother was already planning our wedding.

London, her mother, and my mother all believed I was just going through a moody phase or something. My mother said it was OK if I needed to sow some wild oats this summer.

London would be patient. If Rush Finlay was throwing parties again, then his mother and his younger sister, Nan, had to be out of town. Rush owned the place. His father was the drummer in the legendary rock band Slacker Demon. His mother and his sister benefited from all the money Rush had, thanks to his dad.

They had never married. Nan had another father, who was also out of the picture. Want me to take you to him? That sweet tone was so fucking fake it was ridiculous. The girl was venomous. But I could never actually say I was in love with her. This past year, I had realized I was simply tolerating her. I dreaded seeing her, and when I faced the facts, I realized I was keeping her around to make my parents happy.

But I was done with that. No more keeping the parents happy. I was keeping me happy. He was such a fucking Romeo. He made them all believe they had a chance. Holding in a chuckle, I nodded my head in his direction. Turning through the crowd, I headed for the back door.

I said no, Jonathon. I moved toward their voices and stopped outside the kitchen. I recognized the Jonathon guy the girl was talking to. He was also a notorious asshole and had fucked most of the cougars in town. If he was about to take advantage of this girl, then I was going to throw his ass out.

I want to leave. I took a step toward the door as Jonathon stalked through it. Stupid little fuck. I shoved him back into the kitchen with one hard push. He was going to apologize for being a dickhead before I threw him out. I doubted Rush even knew he was here. Some of the cougars he had slept with included a couple of our mothers.

Not on our favorites list. Getting his sorry ass to apologize would do him some good. Poor girl should have known better than to mess around with the help at the club. My dad sat on the board at the Kerrington Club, and I could have Jonathon fired with one word.

He knew it. What the fuck? She too young for you? I wanted him gone. Just one wrong move, and that was all I needed to make sure he lost his job without feeling a shred of remorse. I mean, I was invited. I got an invite. This is just a girl whose aunt works at the club. Hell, it was hard to miss her. Jonathon was right about her tits. They were noticeable.

But her sweet face and innocent look had kept me from moving in on that. Besides, Darla was scary as hell. Her big eyes got even bigger before she nodded. Be careful who you let take you out. Stupid shit was getting on my last nerve. I turned my attention back to him. I know her aunt. The woman who hired your sorry ass. He likes Darla. We all do. There was a lot of wrist pain happening.

But the point is, the book is truly emotionally resonant. It follows the lives of four men who meet in their college dorm room. They become extremely close friends, all of them, although their friendships are different, the dynamics unique to each configuration.

What is Kobo Super Points?

Malcolm, Willem, J. Her father, a prominent history professor, is losing his memory and is only erratically lucid. Within the year, Marlena is dead, drowned in six inches of icy water in the woods nearby. Now, decades later, when a ghost from that pivotal year surfaces unexpectedly, Cat must try again to move on, even as the memory of Marlena calls her back.

In four Chinese women, recent immigrants to San Francisco, begin meeting to eat dim sum, play mahjong, and talk. United in shared unspeakable loss and hope, they call themselves the Joy Luck Club.

Rather than sink into tragedy, they choose to gather to raise their spirits and money.

Or to prolong what was already unbearable. A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini Born a generation apart and with very different ideas about love and family, Mariam and Laila are two women brought jarringly together by war, by loss and by fate. As they endure the ever escalating dangers around them—in their home as well as in the streets of Kabul—they come to form a bond that makes them both sisters and mother-daughter to each other, and that will ultimately alter the course not just of their own lives but of the next generation.

Full of hope, she settles in Philadelphia to build a better life. Instead she marries a man who will bring her nothing but disappointment, and watches helplessly as her firstborn twins are lost to an illness that a few pennies could have prevented.

Hattie gives birth to nine more children, whom she raises with grit, mettle, and not an ounce of the tenderness they crave.

She vows to prepare them to meet a world that will not be kind. In the title story, an interpreter guides an American family through the India of their ancestors and hears an astonishing confession.

The Foreign Student by Susan Choi Highly acclaimed by critics, The Foreign Student is the story of a young Korean man, scarred by war, and the deeply troubled daughter of a wealthy Southern American family.

In , a new student arrives at a small college in the Tennessee mountains. Chuck is shy, speaks English haltingly, and on the subject of his earlier life in Korea he will not speak at all. Then he meets Katherine, a beautiful and solitary young woman who, like Chuck, is haunted by some dark episode in her past.

Without quite knowing why, these two outsiders are drawn together, each sensing in the other the possibility of salvation. Across the Pacific, we meet Ruth, a novelist living on a remote island who discovers a collection of artifacts washed ashore in a Hello Kitty lunchbox—possibly debris from the devastating tsunami. Their love story sets in motion events that will have profound repercussions for everyone involved. Music of the Ghosts by Vaddey Ratner Leaving the safety of America, Teera returns to Cambodia for the first time since her harrowing escape as a child refugee.

Both are beautiful, modern, and carefree—until the day their father tells them that he has gambled away their wealth.

To repay his debts, he must sell the girls as wives to suitors who have traveled from Los Angeles to find Chinese brides. As Japanese bombs fall on their beloved city, Pearl and May set out on the journey of a lifetime, from the Chinese countryside to the shores of America.

The Known World by Edward P. When he dies, his widow, Caldonia, succumbs to profound grief, and things begin to fall apart at their plantation: slaves take to escaping under the cover of night, and families who had once found love beneath the weight of slavery begin to betray one another. A couple in their thirties live in a small rented cottage in a quiet part of Tokyo; they work at home, freelance copy-editing; they no longer have very much to say to one another.

But one day a cat invites itself into their small kitchen. It leaves, but the next day comes again, and then again and again. Soon they are buying treats for the cat and enjoying talks about the animal and all its little ways.

Life suddenly seems to have more promise for the husband and wife—the days have more light and color. The novel brims with new small joys and many moments of staggering poetic beauty, but then something happens… A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry With a compassionate realism and narrative sweep that recall the work of Charles Dickens, this magnificent novel captures all the cruelty and corruption, dignity and heroism, of India.

The time is The place is an unnamed city by the sea. The government has just declared a State of Emergency, in whose upheavals four strangers—a spirited widow, a young student uprooted from his idyllic hill station, and two tailors who have fled the caste violence of their native village—will be thrust together, forced to share one cramped apartment and an uncertain future.

You Were Mine

At night, his Ma shuts him safely in the wardrobe, where he is meant to be asleep when Old Nick visits. Through her fierce love for her son, she has created a life for him in this eleven-by-eleven-foot space. By age thirteen, she has undergone countless surgeries, transfusions, and shots so that her older sister, Kate, can somehow fight the leukemia that has plagued her since childhood.

The product of preimplantation genetic diagnosis, Anna was conceived as a bone marrow match for Kate—a life and a role that she has never challenged…until now. Like most teenagers, Anna is beginning to question who she truly is. But unlike most teenagers, she has always been defined in terms of her sister—and so Anna makes a decision that for most would be unthinkable, a decision that will tear her family apart and have perhaps fatal consequences for the sister she loves.

Tolkien and, most of all, finding love. But Oscar may never get what he wants. Encapsulating Dominican-American history, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao opens our eyes to an astonishing vision of the contemporary American experience and explores the endless human capacity to persevere—and risk it all—in the name of love.

In a fit of preemptive grief and magical thinking, so that no bad news can reach her, Ora sets out on an epic hike in the Galilee.

She is joined by an unlikely companion—Avram, a former friend and lover with a troubled past—and as they sleep out in the hills, Ora begins to conjure her son. Here, in the space of four years, she lost five young men dear to her, including her beloved brother—lost to drugs, accidents, murder, and suicide. Wave by Sonali Deraniyagala On the morning of December 26, , on the southern coast of Sri Lanka, Sonali Deraniyagala lost her parents, her husband, and her two young sons in the tsunami she miraculously survived.

In this brave and searingly frank memoir, she describes those first horrifying moments and her long journey since. Life does not get any easier when her father remarries. She and her siblings are subjected to the disdain of her stepmother, while her stepbrother and stepsister are spoiled. Although Adeline wins prizes at school, they are not enough to compensate for what she really yearns for—the love and understanding of her family. Following the success of the critically acclaimed adult bestseller Falling Leaves, this memoir is a moving telling of the classic Cinderella story, with Adeline Yen Mah providing her own courageous voice.

And so she was both elated and saddened when, at twelve, she joined her parents and youngest brothers in New York City. As Edwidge made a life in a new country, adjusting to being far away from so many who she loved, she and her family continued to fear for the safety of those still in Haiti as the political situation deteriorated.

In , they entered into a terrifying tale of good people caught up in events beyond their control.

She shows us her veins, her bone marrow, her heart, everything tender and dangerous in her. The essays are all intellectually rigorous as well as emotional, though. Febos interrogates what it means to love and lose, what it means to be abandoned.

She writes about mental illness and the choices we make about how to live with it in ourselves or in our loved ones. She writes about the aftermath of addiction and the way life evolves beyond it.

You Were Mine

She writes about sex and longing, about passion that is both physical and of the mind, though perhaps those are one and the same. Quite frankly, she makes me think that no love I have ever experienced is as beautiful as the ones she has been through. Not for ten years. Not about faith anyway. Undivided is a real-time story of healing and understanding with alternating narratives from each as they struggle to learn how to love each other in a whole new way. The couple swore eternal love, but also swore as skittish divorce survivors never to marry.

However, providence intervened in the form of a U. In the telling, bizarre ancestors appear before our eyes; we hear both delightful and bitter childhood memories, amazing anecdotes of youthful years, and the most intimate secrets passed along in whispers.

When Alison comes out as homosexual herself in late adolescense, the denouement is swift, graphic—and redemptive. The Bright Hour by Nina Riggs Nina Riggs was just thirty-seven years old when initially diagnosed with breast cancer—one small spot.

Within a year, the mother of two sons, ages seven and nine, and married sixteen years to her best friend, received the devastating news that her cancer was terminal. How does one approach the moments, big and small, with both love and honesty?

She asks, what makes a meaningful life when one has limited time? One day he was a doctor treating the dying, and the next he was a patient struggling to live. And just like that, the future he and his wife had imagined evaporated.

What makes life worth living in the face of death? What do you do when the future, no longer a ladder toward your goals in life, flattens out into a perpetual present? What does it mean to have a child, to nurture a new life as another fades away?

These are some of the questions Kalanithi wrestles with. This is a portrait of unwavering commitment that spans twenty years, from the long winters of the Midwest, to surgical wards, to book parties in New York.

Through love, fame, drugs, and despair, this is what it means to be part of two lives that are intertwined…and what happens when one is left behind.

I was pretty sure of what he wanted to do back in a bedroom with her. Can a country composed largely of perpetrators and victims create a cohesive national society? She and her siblings are subjected to the disdain of her stepmother, while her stepbrother and stepsister are spoiled. I enjoyed the way she talked.
