- L.A. Blues, by Maxine Thompson
- Growing up in foster care, Zipporah “Z” Saldano never dreamed of becoming a police officer, but after she’s rescued from a hostage situation during the LA riots, she chooses a career in law enforcement. After ten good years on the force, Z is involved in a domestic homicide case gone awry. Her partner is killed, and Z is fired when alcohol is detected in her system. It’s two long years before she gets sober and opens her own private investigation firm. Now Shirley, her former foster mother, is in need of Z’s help. Soneone has murdered her grandson, a high school basketball star, and she wants Z to find out who did it. Z soon finds herself in deeper trouble than when she was kicked out of the LAPD. What she discovers is a conspiracy much deeper than anyone would believe, and she finds her own life is in danger.
- Spoonin’, by Kimberly T. Matthews
- When his marriage falls into turmoil due to lack of intimacy, Malcolm takes matters into his own hands by getting back into the dating game, but he soon discovers that his quasi-single status isn’t all he’d imagined it would be and must earn his wife’s forgiveness to repair their marriage.
- The Things They Carried, by Tim O’Brien
- A classic work of American literature that has not stopped changing minds and lives since it burst onto the literary scene, The Things They Carried is a ground breaking mediation on war, memory, imagination, and the redemptive power of storytelling. The Things They Carried depicts the men of Alpha Company: Jimmy Cross, Henry Dobbins, Rat Kiley, Mitchell Sanders, Norman Bowker, Kiowa, and the character Tim O’Brien, who has survived his tour in Vietnam to become a father and writer at the age of forty-three.
- Beautiful Boy: A Father’s Journey Through His Son’s Addiction, by David Sheff
- What had happened to my beautiful boy? To our family? What did I do wrong? Those are the wrenching questions that haunted every moment of Sheff’s journey through his son Nic’s addiction to drugs and tentative steps toward recovery. Before Nic Sheff became addicted to crystal meth, he was a charming boy, joyous and funny, a varsity athlete and honor student adored by his two younger siblings. After meth, he was a trembling wraith who lied, stole, and lived on the streets. David Sheff traces the first subtle warning signs: the denial, the 3 A.M. phone calls (is it Nic? the police? the hospital?), the rehabs. His preoccupation with Nic became an addiction in itself, and the obsessive worry and stress took a tremendous toll. But as a journalist, he instinctively researched every avenue of treatment that might save his son and refused to give up on Nic.
- The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, by Carson McCullers
- With its profound sense of moral isolation and its compassionate glimpses into its characters’ inner lives, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter is considered McCullers finest work and an enduring masterpiece. At its center is the deaf-mute John Singer, who becomes the confidant for variouis types of misfits in a Georgia mill town during the 1930s. Each one yearns for escape from small town life. When Singer’s mute companion goes insane, Singer moves into the Kelly house, where Mick Kelly, the book’s heroine, finds solace in her music.
