    Synopsis
    From Johnny Shaw, the Anthony Award–winning author of Big Maria, comes a wild tale about the wonderful things that bring a family together—larceny, deception, and revenge. Fifteen years ago, Axel, Gretchen, and Kurt Ucker lost their father. At the same time, they learned that he had secretly been a thief their whole lives—and left a fortune unaccounted for. Since then, the Uckers have lived a precarious existence. Their small town shunned and shamed them. Their mother, Bertha, retreated into her religion and her favorite televangelist, Brother Tobin Floom. Axel got a dead-end job. Gretchen turned to petty crime. And Kurt stayed with his mom and his garage band. When Bertha dies, she leaves everything she has to Floom and his gold-plated revival. The Uckers are at a loss for words. And an inheritance, a house, and a future. Until their long-lost aunt shows up with a secret: Floom is their grandfather; some new relatives: a family of liars, cheats, and thieves; and best of all, a plan: infiltrate Floom’s multimillion-dollar ministry and pull off the grandest heist in Ucker family history. When you’ve got nothing left to lose, you might as well risk it all.

    Synopsis
    In September 1971, the bloodiest prison riot in American history took place in sleepy upstate New York town of Attica. Yet most of that blood was spilled not by the inmates who took over Attica Correctional Facility during four desperate days, but by the state's governor and future vice president Nelson Rockefeller. This is the personal story of what those days were like, what went wrong, and how the tragedy at Attica holds up a mirror to America's dark treatment of its prison population. Clarence B. Jones and Stuart Connelly, the authors of the acclaimed memoir Behind the Dream: The Making of the Speech That Transformed a Nation, take on the most urgent and least understood civil rights issue of today's society - prisoners' rights. Jones, the reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s former attorney and draft speechwriter, now tells the personal story of his time battling and negotiating for the inmates' survival as one of the observers and requested by the inmates during the rebellion. But Uprising: Understanding Attica, Revolution, and the Incarceration State goes beyond memoir - Jones and Connelly use Attica as a touchstone for a clear-eyed critique of what has gone wrong with America's prison system over the last 40 years.

    Synopsis
    A thin line separates life from death, freedom from oppression. One misstep. One wrong choice. When Cricket Black is purposely exposed to Bad Sam, she must choose: fight New Caelum's stranglehold on its citizens' freedom or succumb to the hopelessness of the lethal virus. A dear friend's death at the hands of New Caelum forces Cricket on a path to confront her past, which holds the secret to a permanent cure but also opens old wounds over the loss of her parents. Sending the devastating Samael Strain virus into the outlying communities lands New Caelum on the verge of war with the western settlements. Inside the city, growing tension between the lower classes and New Caelum's elite rulers puts the city on edge and creates a growing divide between Vice-President Westlin Layne and his mother, President Ginger Layne. With death, chaos, and revolution surrounding them, will West and Cricket have to sacrifice their love for each other to bring a peaceful resolution to the wars that rage inside and outside the city?

    Synopsis
    In The Upside of Your Dark Side, two pioneering researchers in the field of psychology show that while mindfulness, kindness, and positivity can take us far, they cannot take us all the way. Sometimes, they can even hold us back. Emotions like anger, anxiety, or doubt might be uncomfortable, but it turns out that they are also incredibly useful.For instance:• Anger fuels creativity• Guilt sparks improvement• Self-doubt enhances performance• Selfishness increases courage• Mindlessness leads to better decisionsThe key lies in what the authors call “emotional agility,” the ability to access our full range of emotions—not just the “good” ones—in order to respond most effectively to whatever situation we might encounter. Drawing on years of scientific research and a wide array of real-life examples including sports, the military, parenting, education, romance, business, and more, The Upside of Your Dark Side is a refreshing reality check that shows us how we can truly maximize our potential.

    Synopsis
    This, too, is a jungle. The rules I need to follow are those of teeth and claw! Jimmy moves from his home at the edge of the Seeonee forest to the big, bad capital where he learns to deal with complicated bus routes, unscrupulous property brokers and shady local goons. Along the way he makes a few good friends and volunteers his services as a translator for the Bandar-log when he realizes that, like his grandfather Mowgli, he can speak the language of the monkeys. But Jimmy's life is thrown off course when he is kidnapped by Shamsher Khan, an evil poacher and arms dealer. His friend Heera launches a rescue mission, together with her mentor Guru KA and Inspector A. Kala, while Grandpa Mowgli and the Bandar-log set out on a crosscountry chase that ends in a thrilling climax. The Urban Jungle is a witty contemporary interpretation of Kipling's original tale. With the flair and energy of a master storyteller, Samrat shows us that even in modern cities it is ultimately the law of the jungle that reigns supreme.
