When Tuesday Storm's mother plunges headfirst down a flight of stairs, it's the second-worst thing that ever happens in Tuesday's life. The first? Mama survives the accident. Suddenly she's furious with Tuesday for some mysterious “bad thing” she's done. The doctor says the aggression is due to a brain injury and only temporary. So the Storms do what any proud, Southern family would. They hide the problem, hoping it will go away. Meanwhile little Tuesday becomes the target of unrelenting hostility and twisted “punishments.” In this based-on-a-true-story novel, a now-grown Tuesday recounts, with raw emotion, her sudden “loss” of a nurturing mother, and the tragic years to follow living with the monster in her mother's clothes--a monster she can't stop loving.

A classic from the author of The First Phone Call from Heaven Maybe it was a grandparent, or a teacher, or a colleague. Someone older, patient and wise, who understood you when you were young and searching, helped you see the world as a more profound place, gave you sound advice to help you make your way through it. For Mitch Albom, that person was Morrie Schwartz, his college professor from nearly twenty years ago. Maybe, like Mitch, you lost track of this mentor as you made your way, and the insights faded, and the world seemed colder. Wouldn't you like to see that person again, ask the bigger questions that still haunt you, receive wisdom for your busy life today the way you once did when you were younger? Mitch Albom had that second chance. He rediscovered Morrie in the last months of the older man's life. Knowing he was dying, Morrie visited with Mitch in his study every Tuesday, just as they used to back in college. Their rekindled relationship turned into one final “class”: lessons in how to live. Tuesdays with Morrie is a magical chronicle of their time together, through which Mitch shares Morrie's lasting gift with the world. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Colleen Stan was a sweet-natured, lively twenty-year-old when she set out to hitchhike from her home in Washington to Southern California. Seven years later she emerged from hell, the victim of a bizarre and chilling crime. Cameron and Janice Hooker had literally made her their slave - and forced her to endure all of Cameron's twisted sexual perversions. During these seven years the Hookers had two children, entertained their friends at home and held down jobs - while Colleen was held captive in a coffin-like box under their bed. This is also the story of Christine McGuire, a young, inexperienced deputy district attorney who prosecuted Cameron Hooker for kidnapping and successfully explained why Colleen - who had numerous chances to escape - stayed captive for so many years.
