THE RENT COLLECTOR
. Under threat of eviction by an embittered old drunk who collects rents from the poor of Stung Meanchey in Cambodia, Sang Ly embarks on a desperate journey to save her ailing son from a life of ignorance and poverty--and learns a life-saving secret about the rent collector.
HEAVEN IS HERE
. A poignant and inspirational memoir that chronicles Stephanie Nielson's life before and after a horrific plane crash that changes her life forever.
. Ten-year-old Auggie Pullman, born with extreme facial abnormalities, goes from being home-schooled to entering fifth grade at a private middle school in Manhattan, where he endures the taunting and fear of his classmates as he struggles to be seen as just another student. Rare, moving children's fiction with heart!
THE END OF YOUR LIFE BOOK CLUB
. During treatment for cancer, Mary Anne Schwalbe and her son Will spent many hours sitting in waiting rooms together. To pass time, they talked about books they were reading. Once, by chance, they read the same book at the same time--and an informal book club of two was born. A beautiful tribute to a remarkable mother.
