I Really Wanna Go Home from the Author: Raymond J. Radner. Young World War II veteran George Edwards needs a drink—all the time. Although it is a new year—1952—in New York City, George’s life remains the same. As he centers his daily routine around a whiskey bottle, George begins to drive both himself and his devoted wife, Margie, straight into the depths of destitution. George is bitter. Once he was a star ballplayer with lofty goals, but his dreams have been shattered by the injuries he suffered while serving in North Africa. Now George entertains himself by insulting others, including Margie, a devoted Catholic who is torn between the demands of her faith and the need to escape the verbal abuse she endures daily. Desperate for love and attention, she somehow finds herself in bed with Doc Hayden. But even though George is a drunk, he is no fool. Now it appears that the only way George and Margie will ever survive is to go their separate ways. Really Wanna Go Home is the compelling tale of a young couple’s struggle to escape poverty and the effects of a debilitating disease destined to transport both on distinct journeys that soon meet in a catastrophic collision with destiny.

I Want To Go Home from the Author: Gordon Korman. Gordon Korman's uproarious, outrageous, and all-too-familiar summer camp adventure is BACK! Rudy Miller really isn't into the whole camping thing. So when his parents send him to Camp Algonkian "for his own good" all he wants to do is go home. Rudy teams up with his cabin-mate Mike for a series of carefully planned - yet hilariously bungled - escape attempts. Unfortunately, their counsellor (and nemesis) Chip is as determined to keep them there as they are to get away. Rudy and Mike spend their days plotting, playing chess, and working off punishments for their failed escapes. Hmmm, maybe it isn't such a bad way to spend the summer after all . . .

Do You Really Want To Know Why I Am Not At Home from the Author: Gregory L. Wright; Aaron J. Cox. This book was written from the REAL perspective of everyday men and women that struggle with finding peace in their home. No clinical sounding or Doctoral thesis was necessary to discuss what real people like you and I need to know. Stop paying the bills for drama to live in your home. A PLEA FOR CHANGE is here. Long time friends and Co-Authors Gregory Wright and Aaron Cox look at the real issues that divide men and women in today’s relationships. They feel society has conditioned us how to think, act and look. They also believe mass media ploys are becoming more main stream than family values. The hearts of men and women in this society have been suppressed by emotional thinking. They ask the question “Is society REALLY interested in your well being and quality of life”? Is it true to say our emotions drive our wants, but needs are attached to the heart? Our chapters will also identify how our wants have taken priority and our needs have been put off until another day that will come too late, if at all. Please don’t be offended or take anything personally, we had to keep it REAL. Along with some laughs this book guarantees to put you back on track for what’s REALLY important and living the American dream and not the American theme. Do you REALLY want to know why I am not at home exposes key issues to why we REALLY don’t want to be home.

Left Neglected from the Author: Lisa Genova. One typical morning, Sarah Nickerson, a woman in her mid-thirties, is late for work, racing in her car after dropping her kids off at school and daycare. She tries to phone in to a meeting she should already be at when she takes her eye off the road for a second too long. In that blink of an eye, all the rapidly moving parts of her over-scheduled life come to a screeching halt. Sarah suffers a traumatic head injury. Her memory and intellect are intact, but she has lost all interest in, and the ability to perceive, information coming from the left side of space. The left side of her world has gone. Sarah only eats the food from the right side of her plate. She can't see her watch, or her engagement diamond or her wedding ring. She tries to use a wheel chair but can only spin in circles as her left arm dangles by her side.

PRISONER OF DESIRE Her captor was just about the most gorgeous hunk of man she'd ever laid eyes on. But his attitudes—especially when it came to women—were straight out of another world. And the most infuriating part was, Sheik Zayn Haji Haaris awakened within her a passion that rocked her world to its very foundations….
