It’s about time! —Jennifer Musselman, author of Own It! The Ups & Downs of Homebuying for Women Who Go It Alone Twenty-five-year-old Tamina is a sharp-witted Jersey girl living in Hollywood with a near-phobic response to mismatching colors, an addiction to pedicures, and a hectic job teaching comprehensive sex education to urban youth. Suffering the consequences of a violent assault, Tam looks for relief in romance and LA’s underground erotic entertainment scene. However, when Tam’s young attacker unexpectedly resurfaces among a crowd of drag queens, porn stars, and musicians, Tam finally must make real choices. Fear or confrontation. Cynicism or curiosity. Silence or honesty. It would be surreal, if it wasn’t LA.

Description : Life used to be simple. I was a city girl with humble dreams. Then Dylan O'Dea broke into my flat, held me against the wall and told me to stay quiet. It was like in the movies, where the universe zeros in on a single scene. I looked into his eyes and knew he was going to change me. For Dylan, the sky was always falling. He showed me how our world is a contradiction of beauty and ugliness. How we choose to ignore the awful and gloss over it with the palatable. How you need just a tiny drop of something unsavoury to create every great scent. Pretty deep for a pair of teenagers living in a block of council flats in inner city Dublin, right? Probably. But we weren't typical. We both had our obsessions. Mine was growing things, Dylan's was scent. He taught me how to use my nose, and I introduced him to the magic of flowers. I had no idea that one day he'd build an empire from what we started together. But before that, there was love and happiness, tragedy and epic heartbreak... My name is Evelyn Flynn and I'm going to tell you about the crack in everything. A Crack in Everything is Book #1 in L.H. Cosway's Cracks duet.

Description : Finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize “The future is in our hands as never before, and this book explains the stakes like no other.” — George Lucas “Required reading for every concerned citizen.” — New York Review of Books Not since the atomic bomb has a technology so alarmed its inventors that they warned the world about its use. That is, until 2015, when biologist Jennifer Doudna called for a worldwide moratorium on the use of the gene-editing tool CRISPR—a revolutionary new technology that she helped create—to make heritable changes in human embryos. The cheapest, simplest, most effective way of manipulating DNA ever known, CRISPR may well give us the cure to HIV, genetic diseases, and some cancers. Yet even the tiniest changes to DNA could have myriad, unforeseeable consequences—to say nothing of the ethical and societal repercussions of intentionally mutating embryos to create “better” humans. Writing with fellow researcher Sam Sternberg, Doudna shares the thrilling story of her discovery and describes the enormous responsibility that comes with the power to rewrite the code of life. “An invaluable account . . . We owe Doudna several times over.” — Guardian
Description : A Crack in the Family presents the story of author Sissy Smith’s life, examining her role not only as narcotic abuser but also an enabler. It traces a journey through the tragic world of the crack cocaine epidemic in America, exploring family, sex, drugs, and love. Born in 1951, Sissy chronicles the important changes and events in her life set against the backdrop of historical events of the time. She was the fourth born of twelve children; she had three sisters and eight brothers. Shy and withdrawn as a child, she was slow to develop friendships. In 1971, she turned twenty and her life in the fast lane began; in that same year, Bridge over Troubled Water by Simon and Garfunkel on Record of the Year and “All in the Family” debuted on CBS. The life story told in A Crack in the Family holds that determination and perseverance can overcome any roadblock in one’s short lifetime, that everyone should face life’s challenges one day at a time, and that the choices we make early
