When thirteen-year-old Lainey fails to come home from a night out with friends, her disappearance is dismissed by the Coral Springs Police Department as just another disillusioned South Florida teen running away from suburban drama and an unhappy home life.

“The night the trailer burned down, I think Daddy was the one who set it on fire. . . . “ For a long time, Edie thought she had escaped. It started in an Appalachian trailer park, where a young girl dreamed of becoming a doctor. But every day, Edie woke up to her reality: a poverty-stricken world where getting out seemed impossible. Where, at twelve years old, she taught herself to drive a truck so she could get her drunk daddy home from the bar. Where the grownups ate while the children went hungry. Where, when the family trailer burned down, she couldn’t be caught squawlin’ over losing her things—she just had to be grateful anyone had remembered to save her at all. And at the center of it all, there was her daddy. She never knew when he would show up; she learned the hard way that she couldn’t count on him to protect her. But it didn’t matter: All she wanted was to make him proud. Against all odds, Edie “made doctor,” achieving everything that had once seemed beyond her reach. But her past caught up with her—and it would take her whole life burning down once again for Edie to be finally able to face the truth about herself, her family, and her relationship with God. Readers of The Glass Castle will treasure this refreshing and raw redemption story, a memoir for anyone who has ever hungered for home, forgiveness, and the safe embrace of a father’s love.

What are crime novels? Well, they include a perpetrator or perpetrators - the bad guys - who've committed an immoral or illegal act and a protagonist - the good guy - who's trying to bring them to justice. Most crime novels are either whodunits or howcatchems. They can be set in any time, or location and can be told from different points of view. Whodunits are pretty self-explanatory - the aim of the story is to discover, with the aid of clues, either alongside or before the detective, the perpetrator of the crime. Howcacthems are when the reader knows the identity of the perpetrator from the outset. The story focuses on how the detective finds the clues and catches the perpetrator. These two types of crime fiction are usually approached in the following ways: cosy crime - these are very popular. They are usually set in a middle class environment and often revolve around a murder that's solved by friendly police or private detective, with his dopey side-kick or an amateur sleuth. There's no graphic description of the crime or gruesome details of the murder. Once the crime is solved, everyone can go back to their cosy lives, safe in the knowledge that the killer has been caught. locked room mystery - so called because the crime takes place under an impossible set of circumstances. For example when it's impossible for someone to have entered or left a locked room hard-boiled - these are the opposite of cosy, they're graphic, gruesome and unsentimental. They contain details of the crimes committed, which are often violent or sexual in their nature. They often feature psychopaths and serial killers and have detectives with deeply flawed characters private detective - these focus on the work of a private detective, rather than the police, in finding the perpetrator of the crime courtroom - these revolve around the courtroom procedure related to the crime. Inevitably the reader knows the main suspects, as they are in the dock, and the details of the crime are revealed as the court case proceeds. This type of fiction often uses flash-back techniques to reveal the storyline. legal dramas - these are a lot like courtroom dramas but they are not conducted wholly in the courtroom. The main focus of the detective work falls on the legal team spy - the action centres on espionage. It usually features a spy working for an intelligence agency caper - these are told from the criminal's point of view with the main focus of the story being on the perpetrator's attempts to avoid detection and capture. These usually have elements of audacity, adventure or humour which distinguish them from normal crime fiction police procedural - these focus on the work of the police to identify the perpetrator and often include lots of detail about crime detection, interview and forensic techniques. The main character is usually a detective or police man tartan noir - a relatively new genre of crime fiction with a Scottish heritage. They are hard-boiled with main characters that are not very likeable. They are often deeply flawed and world weary, as well as having anti-hero traits. They usually suffer from personal crises during the course of the story and the crises will form a major part of the story."

“A Hollywood native from the wrong side of the Walk of Fame makes a play for star status” (Cosmopolitan) in Shanna Mahin’s acclaimed novel, called “quite a breakout” by The New York Times. Jess Dunne is third-generation Hollywood, but her star on the boulevard has yet to materialize. Sure, she’s got a Santa Monica address and a working actress roommate, but with her nowhere barista job in a town that acknowledges zeroes only as a dress size, she’s a dead girl walking. Enter Jess’s mother—a failed actress who puts the strange in estrangement. She dives headlong into her daughter’s downward spiral, forcing Jess to muster all her spite and self-preservation to snag a career upgrade. As a personal assistant for a famous (and secretly agoraphobic) film composer, Jess’s workdays are now filled with shopping for luxury goods and cooking in his perfectly designed kitchen. Jess kills at cooking, a talent that only serves her intensifying urge to dig in to Los Angeles’s celebrity buffet. When her food garners the attention of an actress on the rise, well, she’s all too willing to throw it in with the composer and upgrade again, a decision that will have far-reaching ramifications that could explode all her relationships. All the while, her mother looms ever closer, forcing Jess to confront the traumatic secrets she’s been running from all her life. Oh! You Pretty Things is a dizzying ride at the carnival of fame, a fast-paced and sharply funny work that dares to imagine what happens when we go over the top in a town of gilded excess.

For Chicago sociology professor Amelia Emmet, violence was a research topic--until a student she'd never met shot her. He also shot himself. Now he's dead and she's back on campus, trying to keep up with her class schedule, a growing problem with painkillers, and a question she can't let go: Why? All she wants is for life to get back to normal, but normal is looking hard to come by. She's thirty-eight and hobbles with a cane. Her first student interaction ends in tears (hers). Her fellow faculty members seem uncomfortable with her, and her ex--whom she may or may not still love--has moved on. Enter Nathaniel Barber, a graduate student obsessed with Chicago's violent history. Nath is a serious scholar, but also a serious mess about his first heartbreak, his mother's death, and his father's disapproval. Assigned as Amelia's teaching assistant, Nath also takes on the investigative legwork that Amelia can't do. And meanwhile, he's hoping she'll approve his dissertation topic, the reason he came to grad school in the first place: the student attack on Amelia Emmet. Together and at cross-purposes, Amelia and Nathaniel stumble toward a truth that will explain the attack and take them both through the darkest hours of their lives.

But it can be pretty great, too: you've had the hottest sex of your life, you get that plum job, you muster the courage to write your novel. Everyday across the world, people go through the full and glorious gamut of life - but sometimes, a little advice is needed. For several years, thousands turned to Cheryl Strayed, a then-anonymous internet Agony Aunt.
