Eugene is remembering the summer of 1938 in Frenchtown, a time when he began to wonder "what I was doing here on the planet Earth." Here in vibrant, exquisite detail are his lovely mother, his aunts and uncles, cousins and friends, and especially his beloved, enigmatic father. Here, too, is the world of a mill town: the boys swimming in a brook that is red or purple or green, depending on the dyes dumped that day by the comb shop; the visit of the ice man; and the boys' trips to the cemetery or the forbidden railroad tracks. And here also is a darker world-the mystery of a girl murdered years before. Robert Cormier's touching, funny, melancholy chronicle of a vanished world celebrates a son's connection to his father and human relationships that are timeless.
What happens when two besties become full-blown worsties? Avalon Greene rules the fashion scene at her sunny SoCal middle school with a diamond-clad fist, calling out classmates for their fashion-do's and most unfortunate clothes-pas. She's determined to host the social event of the season-a soiree in honor of her forever-friendship with Halley! Unfortunately, Halley's new look is one thing Avalon just can't celebrate. . . . Halley Brandon is just back from art camp and can't wait to share her funky new style with her best friend, Avalon. But when Avalon cries fashion foul, Halley realizes her best friend's true colors may clash with her own. Has their ultra-fabulous friendship finally gone out of style? From sharing custody of their puppy, Pucci, to drawing up a list of who gets which friends, Avalon and Halley discover what happens when you battle the person who knows everything about you-and isn't afraid to use your secrets to get what she wants. Best friends. Worst enemies. Frenemies.
Just a few months shy of her 30th birthday, Gus Curtis finally feels like she has it all: a strong career, great friends, and a wonderful boyfriend. But all of this comes crashing down when Gus discovers Nate, her "Mr. Right," hooking up behind her back with her so-called "friend" Helen. Soon it seems like the life Gus has worked to make so adult looks a lot like the one she already had as a teenager, and Gus is left with more questions than answers: Can she win Nate back before she turns 30 alone? (And if so, does she really want him?) Is Helen really as devious and manipulative as she seems, or, worse, is Gus more like her frenemy than she ever imagined? And is she ever going to grow up? With the clock ticking down to her birthday, Gus discovers that sometimes the best thing about best-laid plans is trashing them altogether.
From besties to worsties and back again . . . Team Avalon: For Avalon, staying on top of trends has never been a problem-until her fellow cheerleaders decide that her BFF Halley is definitely out this season. Now Avalon must choose between the frenemy who embarrassed her in front of everyone or the new friends who stood by her. vs. Team Halley: Halley thinks she's got it all: her forever-friend Avalon, her new bestie Sofee, and the hottest fall wardrobe at Seaview Middle School. Her life is a total YES. But when Sofee spies Avalon flirting with Halley's crush, will it be World War Halvalon all over again?

A classic vegan cookbook ideal for beginner vegans, with 145 easy, timesaving recipes-newly updated and repackaged
In these last days, it is important for the body of Christ to realize that following man-made plans and formulas is not helping each believer joyfully do God's work. We believers need to get filled and remain full to overflowing with the Word of God by learning what the Word of God says so we get the Word in our hearts. We also need to be filled continuously with the Spirit of God to avoid just going through the motions of religiosity. Being continually full of God's Word and Spirit gives us a fresh anointing of God upon our lives so we can prosper in everything we do for the Kingdom. Staying in the Word keeps us in God's Presence where we can know what the Lord Jesus Christ's plan is and act upon it, which will bring Jesus the glory and honor due His Name. When we are anointed daily, we can have both personal revival and revival throughout the whole church, enabling every believer to take his place and fulfill his function in the Body of Christ. By doing God's will instead of our own, we will be Full Reservoirs rather than Empty Cisterns. The Old Testament anointing of men who were anointed to serve in the sacred offices of the prophet, priest, and king by the anointing with oil is compared and contrasted with what we experience as born-again believers with the anointing of the Holy Spirit presented in the New Testament. The Old Testament office of Priest is contrasted with our High Priest, Jesus. The whole body of Christ is a Priest, offering prayers of intercession for the non-believer and supplication for the believer, as well as praising God. We are also Kings in this life to reign with Christ's righteousness, not only in the millennium or in heaven. God is still anointing prophets, preachers, priests, and kings unto our God, and He's still anointing His people to be witnesses for Him! The author helps us look at several New Testament examples of what it means to initially be filled with and then constantly continue being filled throughout our lives with the Holy Spirit which corresponds to the Old Testament anointing and being continually anointed with fresh oil. The three outstanding characteristics of those with a fresh anointing are described. We can see the results of being anointed with fresh oil and the characteristics of those who maintain a fresh anointing of the Holy Spirit in their lives. Whatever we go through in life, if we are filled up with the Holy Spirit, we can maintain the glow in adverse circumstances.
Fresh Encounters presents a different model for praying together that has seen results in churches across the United States. Put it into practice at your church, and watch the transforming power of Jesus Christ work through united, worship-based prayer.

Robin Robertson has built a publishing record of successful books in the vegetarian/vegan category. Her earlier cookbook,Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow-Cooker,established her bona fides as an expert on the creative use of slow-cookers, and her entire body of work speaks to her ingenuity in the kitchen and the breadth of enticing ingredients and flavors with which she works. Fresh from the Vegan Slow-Cookerprovides practical guidence on how to work with different models of slow-cookers, taking into account the sizes of various machines, the variety of settings they offer, and the quirks and personalities of each device. She addresses any lingering skepticism readers may have about whether slow-cookers can have delicious, meat-free applications, and she shows how to take into account the water content of vegetables and the absorptive qualities of grains when vegan slow-cooking. Fresh from the Vegan Slow-Cooker includes eleven recipe chapters, four of which focus on main courses. There are homey and comforting foods in the American and European style, such as a Rustic Pot Pie Topped with Chive Biscuits and a Ziti with Mushroom and Bell Pepper Ragu, and there are lots of East Asian, South and Southeast Asian, and Mexican/Latin dishes, too. Beans, which cook slowly under any circumstance, are fabulously well-suited to the slow cooker, and Robertson includes such appealing recipes as a Crockery Cassoulet and a Greek-Style Beans with Tomatoes and Spinach. Eighteen robust chilis and stews--two more categories that do well in the slow-cooker--include a warming Chipotle Black Bean Chili with Winter Squash and a surprising but yummy Seitan Stroganoff. Beyond the mains, there are chapters devoted to snacks and appetizers, desserts, breads and breakfasts, and even one on drinks. The many soy-free and gluten-free recipes are clearly identified. Altogether, the collection offers readers loads of ways to expand their vegan repertoire and to get maximum value from their investment in a slow-cooker.
In this third medical thriller by award-winning author and practicing physician Darden North, human reproductive tissue becomes an unexpected commodity. In Fresh Frozen, a young policeman and his tormented wife fail miserably to produce a family, finding themselves outcasts of the renewed baby boom sweeping the United States. However, there is one last hope for them: a catalogue of human embryo and egg donors peddled by a woman whose standards are easily dismissed for the right price. Pursuing their futile attempts to become parents have nearly cost the wife her life and pushed the couple to the brink of bankruptcy. This seemingly last chance for Wesley and Carrie Sarbeck to satisfy their place as parents in Middle America unknowingly tosses them in the midst of a grisly murder, the world of Hollywood celebrities, and a heist of freshly frozen human embryos. The lives of Carrie Sarbeck and two other women intersect at the Van Deman Institute, once a decaying brick building complex just north of Jackson, Mississippi, but now a state-of-the-art center for the resolution of human infertility. While an internet voyeur and thief looks on, each of the three women, one of whom an internationally-known entertainer, has her own reason for entering the Institute. However, as a result of subjecting herself to a concoction of hormones and surgical procedures, one of the three is gruesomely murdered in an intriguing twist of human greed, mental torment, and medical science.
"This is the world of Fresh Girls, where pleasure repeatedly comes from pain and pain is a dreamlike state, a fleeting refuge from reality for these girls teetering between the adult demands and severed innocence of their troubled lives. Ultimately a hard yet sensitive look at the dark side of desire, Fresh Girls And Other Stories is full of personalities yearning to be transformed - like Mary, a dominatrix who fantasizes about her boyfriend while a client begs at her feet; or Jane, burnt out at twenty-four, who dreams of love and marriage but can't resist the feel of crisp fifty-dollar bills; or the girl who goes to bed each night with the spikes of her metal bracelet cutting deep into her flesh; or the young woman who must remain nameless and subservient as she services an elderly gentleman in his cruel yet needy shriveled state." "Writing in a fierce, poetic style, vibrant with energy, Evelyn Lau shows us in a psychological and emotionally truthful way how turning tricks, donning leathers, and wielding a whip can become routine, while love and tenderness seem exotic."

In Fresh Milk, through a provocative collection of stories, memories, and personal accounts, Giles uncovers the myths and truths of the lactating breast. From the young mother grappling with the bewildering trappings of maternity wear to the woman who finds herself surprisingly aroused by new sensations, and the modern dad who learns the ins and outs of breastfeeding, the portraits in Giles's eye-opening book offer a funny, wise, and comforting resource for women -- and even their friends and partners who have had, or expect, intimate experiences with the pleasures and pain of lactation. By turns poignant and informative, sexy and witty, empathic and empowering, Fresh Milk delivers everything we wanted to know about breastfeeding that our mothers never told us.
Dear Peaches, America is PERFECT! I love it here. I wish you could come visit -- we could go shopping on Market Street and you could meet all my new friends. . . . Okay, so Vicenza isn't being totally honest with Peaches, her best friend back in Manila. But what fun is it being the new girl at snooty Grosvernor High? Or rooting through the Salvation Army for unholey cashmere sweaters? Or having culture-shocked, embarrassingly clueless parents? Maybe being Claude Caligari's ignored geometry partner is sort of fun, but Vicenza would rather be his girlfriend . . . or at least his date to the annual fancy-schmancy Soirée d'Hiver. But Vicenza won't be friendless, fashionless, or "fresh off the boat" for long -- it's only a matter of time before she sees what's right before her eyes and her luck begins to change.
"Long before I met him, I was a fan of his writing, and his merciless wit. He's bigger than food."--Anthony Bourdain Eddie Huang is the thirty-year-old proprietor of Baohaus--the hot East Village hangout where foodies, stoners, and students come to stuff their faces with delicious Taiwanese street food late into the night--and one of the food world's brightest and most controversial young stars. But before he created the perfect home for himself in a small patch of downtown New York, Eddie wandered the American wilderness looking for a place to call his own. Eddie grew up in theme-park America, on a could-be-anywhere cul-de-sac in suburban Orlando, raised by a wild family of FOB ("fresh off the boat") hustlers and hysterics from Taiwan. While his father improbably launched a series of successful seafood and steak restaurants, Eddie burned his way through American culture, defying every "model minority" stereotype along the way. He obsessed over football, fought the all-American boys who called him a chink, partied like a gremlin, sold drugs with his crew, and idolized Tupac. His anchor through it all was food--from making Southern ribs with the Haitian cooks in his dad's restaurant to preparing traditional meals in his mother's kitchen to haunting the midnight markets of Taipei when he was shipped off to the homeland. After misadventures as an unlikely lawyer, street fashion renegade, and stand-up comic, Eddie finally threw everything he loved--past and present, family and food--into his own restaurant, bringing together a legacy stretching back to China and the shards of global culture he'd melded into his own identity. Funny, raw, and moving, and told in an irrepressibly alive and original voice, Fresh Off the Boat recasts the immigrant's story for the twenty-first century. It's a story of food, family, and the forging of a new notion of what it means to be American.Praise for Fresh Off the Boat "Mercilessly funny and provocative, Fresh Off the Boat is also a serious piece of work--and an important one. Eddie Huang is hunting nothing less than Big Game here--a question, a conversation, an argument: Who are we? If somebody's going to put a thumb in your eye, it should probably be Eddie Huang. He does everything with style."--Anthony Bourdain "Brash, leading-edge, and unapologetically hip, Huang reconfigures the popular foodie memoir into something worthwhile and very memorable."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
