And soon she’s completely and utterly in love. This is a girl’s journey in love where every day in life feels extra special but can life always be that special and wonderful when there’s dark secrets to unearth.

When Johnquell, an African American teen, suffers a serious accident in the home of his white neighbor, Mrs. Czernicki, his community must find ways to bridge divisions between black and white, gay and straight, old and young. Set in one of the nation’s most highly segregated cities—Milwaukee, Wisconsin—Meet Me Halfway tells stories of connections in a community with a tumultuous and divided past. In nine stories told from diverse perspectives, Jennifer Morales captures a Rust Belt city’s struggle to establish a common ground and a collective vision of the future. Morales gives life to multifaceted characters—white schoolteachers and senior citizens, Latino landlords, black and Puerto Rican teens, political activists, and Vietnam vets. As their lives unfold in these stories, we learn about Johnquell’s family—his grandparents’ involvement in the local Black Panther Party, his sister’s on-again, off-again friendship with a white classmate, and his aunt’s identity crisis as she finds herself falling in love with a woman. We also meet Johnquell’s mother, Gloria, and his school friend Taquan, who is struggling to chart his own future. As an activist mother in the thick of Milwaukee politics, Morales developed a keen ear and a tender heart for the kids who have inherited the city’s troubled racial legacy. With a critical eye on promises unfulfilled, Meet Me Halfway raises questions about the notion of a “postracial” society and, with humor and compassion, lifts up the day-to-day work needed to get there.

'No boyfriends, no groupies'- that is the standing NBNG rule for Amelia Marsh, the hostile and insular front-man of the internationally renowned alternative rock band 'The Bystander Effect'. Four simple coping strategies have pulled her through five years of tours and eight years of life without having to let her stage face slip and in her mind, she is happy. But like any tightly wound twenty-two year old, you can count on a man to screw it up. Their eyes meet over the university library at an opportune moment and he sees past the arctic cold front to the fragile child that she seeks so desperately to protect. Truths are told in a scorching hot tale of trust sought through lust and love won through tolerance and blissful ignorance. What man wouldn't salivate at the notion of spending weeks in the close company of the band he idolises and his 'dream woman'? Oh, that would be CJ. He has no idea who they are. What a moron.

Would You Meet Me Halfway? (Revised edition, prior edition You Still Don't Understand.) Who's right? What's fair? If men and women really are that different, how do we compromise? Quarrels continue because we have real concerns over what is right and fair, and who ought to give in and on what. Many of us would be willing to meet halfway, but we hardly know what that means. Would You Meet Me Halfway? shines a flashlight on the power struggles between men and women, and shows why they continue. Enjoy this easy-to-understand presentation of the cleverly camouflaged combat tactics between men and women. The authors are masters of understanding our misunderstandings, and show you how to navigate through these confusing times. Much of it will surprise you. While we usually think of men as being strong and stoic, indications are that men are more seriously stressed in arguments with women than the other way around! While we think of our society as unfair to women, indications are that we often support women against men and leave men to take care of themselves. And while we seek equality, now more than ever, we continue to judge men and women by vastly different standards. This is just the ticket for those who wish to: ° Learn to stay on track ° Resuscitate a burned-out relationship; ° Make a good relationship great; ° Laugh out loud at our shared foibles; and ° Investigate some of the most intriguing puzzles of our times. (Endorsements from 1st edition.)"Carefully researched, well written, provocative, and often quite funny, this timely little volume is full of deep wisdom and practical insights not found elsewhere. The narrative moves smoothly between our early origins and the complexities of modern relation¬ships. Truly, a fascinating read."—Michael Dowd, author of Thank God for Evolution "If you are a man wondering why you aren't involved in a committed relationship, or a woman wondering where all the good men have gone, then you need to read this book. It explains the problem brilliantly."—Helen Smith, PhD, author of Men on Strike and host at Pajamas TV. See additional comments from the first edition, titled "You Still Don't Understand," on Amazon.

The universality of love permeates her poems about letting go and learning to love yourself again. You will laugh, cry, get angry, sigh, and cheer as this romantic soul touches yours. And youll be even more convinced that Tennyson was right afterall!

SILENT NIGHT brings to life one of the most unlikely and touching events in the annals of war. In the early months of WWI, on Christmas Eve, men on both sides left their trenches, laid down their arms, and joined in a spontaneous celebration with their new friends, the enemy. For a brief, blissful time, remembered since in song and story, a world war stopped. Even the participants found what they were doing incredible. Germans placed candle-lit Christmas trees on trench parapets and warring soldiers sang carols. In the spirit of the season they ventured out beyond their barbed wire to meet in No Man's Land, where they buried the dead in moving ceremonies, exchanged gifts, ate and drank together, and joyously played football, often with improvised balls. The truce spread as men defied orders and fired harmlessly into the air. But, reluctantly, they were forced to re-start history's most bloody war. SILENT NIGHT vividly recovers a dreamlike event, one of the most extraordinary of Christmas stories.

BLOW is the unlikely story of George Jung's roller coaster ride from middle-class high school football hero to the heart of Pablo Escobar's Medellin cartel-- the largest importer of the United States cocaine supply in the 1980s. Jung's early business of flying marijuana into the United States from the mountains of Mexico took a dramatic turn when he met Carlos Lehder, a young Colombian car thief with connections to the then newly born cocaine operation in his native land. Together they created a new model for selling cocaine, turning a drug used primarily by the entertainment elite into a massive and unimaginably lucrative enterprise-- one whose earnings, if legal, would have ranked the cocaine business as the sixth largest private enterprise in the Fortune 500. The ride came to a screeching halt when DEA agents and Florida police busted Jung with three hundred kilos of coke, effectively unraveling his fortune. But George wasn't about to go down alone. He planned to bring down with him one of the biggest cartel figures ever caught. With a riveting insider account of the lurid world of international drug smuggling and a super-charged drama of one man's meteoric rise and desperate fall, Bruce Porter chronicles Jung's life using unprecedented eyewitness sources in this critically acclaimed true crime classic.

Reluctant hero, Honore Greenwood, has a knack for embroiling himself in the most violent conflicts of the Southern Plains. Known as Plenty Man to the Comanches, Honore serves as ransom negotiator for captives among the Indians. As if his life wasn't in danger enough, Honore has offered his services to the New Mexico Volunteers in the Civil War. But as Honore's luck would have it, he's in the same unit as Luther Sheffield, a man whose grudge against Greenwood knows no boundaries, even though they are fighting on the same side. Leaving behind his beautiful Arapaho bride, Honore rides out, joining his legendary friend, Kit Carson, as a scout. But he is swept into more action than he bargained for—heavy combat in the battles of Val Verde Ford and Glorieta Pass plus Indian attacks—all the while watching over his shoulder for the ruthless Luther Sheffield. Worried that he may soon be ordered to take up arms against his own adoptive tribe, the Comanches, Honore resigns as Kit's scout to return to his tribe. But Honore's halcyon days among the Indians cannot last forever, and he knows that eventually his old cavalry unit will come to attack his village. Torn between a nation on the rise and his own adoptive culture, Plenty Man is forced to lead the fight for Comanche freedom against his old friend, the great Kit Carson, in a battle at a remote place in the Texas Panhandle called Adobe Walls. But in the end, it becomes difficult to tell enemy from ally, and Plenty Man knows his loyalty to the Indians may cost him everything – his beautiful wife, his freedom to return to white civilization, his friendship with Kit, and even his very life.
