Smashed (USED)

$3.99
More Info
From earliest experimentation to habitual excess to full-blown abuse, twenty-four-year-old Koren Zailckas leads us through her experience of a terrifying trend among young girls, exploring how binge drinking becomes routine, how it becomes athe usual.a With the stylistic freshness of a poet and the dramatic gifts of a novelist, Zailckas describes her first sip at fourteen, alcohol poisoning at sixteen, a blacked-out sexual experience at nineteen, total disorientation after waking up in an unfamiliar New York City apartment at twenty-two, when she realized she had to stop, and all the depression, rage, troubled friendships, and sputtering romantic connections in between. Zailckasas unflinching candor and exquisite analytical eye gets to the meaning beneath the seeming banality of girlsa getting drunk. She persuades us that her story is the story of thousands of girls like her who are not alcoholicsayetabut who use booze as a short cut to courage, a stand-in for good judgment, and a bludgeon for shyness, each of them failing to see how their emotional distress, unarticulated hostility, and depression are entangled with their socially condoned binging.

Like the contemporary masterpieces "The Liarsa Club, Autobiography of a Face," and "Jarhead, Smashed" is destined to become a classic. A crucial book for any woman who has succumbed to oblivion through booze, or for anyone ready to face the more subtle repercussions of their own chronic over-drinking or of someone they love, "Smashed" is an eye-opening, wise, and utterly gripping achievement.

In a violent storm, Sean fires at what he believes to be a deer, but what turns out to be a young Indian warrior on a vision quest. Grandpa says there is nothing they can do for the dying boy and takes the boy's Spirit Bow. Grandpa then tells his grandson, "Nice Shot." These simple words will haunt Sean for years to come. The young warrior's death sets in motion, a series of tragic consequences that will have a lasting effect on young O'Malley.The local tribe kills Sean's family in retribution and kidnaps his little sister, Becky. In their grief, Sean and his father, Patrick, sell the family farm and head out to make a new life in Oregon Country. In St. Louis they cross paths with Hatchet Jack, Patrick's estranged half brother. Sean wants to warn his father not to trust Jack, but he has not yet regained his ability to speak after the tragedy. Patrick and Sean set out with Jack and Chimalis, Jack's captive squaw. Sean and Chimalis become fast friends, and she begins teaching him the Crow language.One night on the journey, Jack wakes Sean to tell him that Patrick has been killed by a rival from St. Louis. Sean won't learn the truth of it for another few years--that Jack killed Patrick in a drunken, jealous rage. Jack buries his half brother, then leads them out on the trail to a cabin where they will trap and wait out the winter. Sean proves his worth as a hunter, but Jack's approval is fleeting. The colder it gets, the more Jack sinks into drunken lunacy. His abuse of Chimalis grows more violent by the day, and he takes to beating Sean as well. One night they fight back. In the struggle, the cabin catches fire and Jack falls unconscious. Sean and Chimalis leave him to die and strike out on their own. They encounter Red Knife, a celebrated warrior from Chimalis's River Crow tribe. He takes them to his village, where Chief Standing Lance and the council of elders agree to accept Sean as one of their own, and he becomes the adopted son of Red Knife and Chimalis. Sean learns the ways of the Crow, and his exploits in the ensuing years are the stuff of legends, and he earns the name of Night Wind.Threats to the Crows' way of life are many. The warring Lakota have feuded with the Crow for generations, and many on both sides are content to continue trading an eye for an eye. But Night Wind, having seen the unflinching viciousness of white settlers, believes that the tribes need to set aside old conflicts so that they might band together and defend themselves. With the help of Jim Beckwourth, war chief of the Mountain Crow and a former slave to whom Night Wind showed kindness back when he was just a boy, Night Wind attempts to lower tensions between the tribes and white settlers. But when his best friend Kicking Horse is killed needlessly by an overaggressive white man with a rifle, there is nothing he can do to prevent a hotheaded young raiding party from taking their revenge on nearby white settlers.Night Wind races ahead of the raiding party to warn the unsuspecting settlers and finds that they are dying of a terrible pox. One of the boys in the family mistakes Night Wind for an attacking Indian and shoots him. Night Wind falls from his horse, shattering the Spirit Bow he has carried most of his life. If not for the Louis and Clark Peace Medallion that Night Wind has carried around his neck since he was a boy under Hatchet Jack's oppressive care, the bullet would have killed him. He loses consciousness before he can warn the family that their lives are in danger.Night Wind regains consciousness too late to warn his Crow brethren about the pox. They have killed the settlers, gained their revenge for Kicking Horse, and saved Night Wind's life, but at what cost? The after effects of his intervention change his life forever.

GRAND PRIZE WINNER OF THE 7th ANNUAL WRITER'S DIGEST E-BOOK AWARDS!

On the island of Helvar, women rule. Sixteen-year-old Carina has trained for most of her life to belong to the coveted Daughters of Hel, the steel-handed Viking warriors who provide souls to the Death Goddess in exchange for the prosperity of their island. Gaining her place hasn't been easy. She was not borne of the island, but another spoil from another raid, raised by the island Chieftain. There are many who would see her fail, and on her first raid, she does. She doesn't kill a priestess she should have.

Carina needs to prove her worth or risk losing her place. Before she can, her arch-nemesis drugs her wine and sends her off the isle as a captive of three foreign boys. But what is Carina's greatest misfortune may turn out to be her greatest gift. The young men are taking her to the jewel of the Southern Isles - Fortis Venitis, a place no other Daughter of Hel can venture. Carina can place Hel's claims on the Southern isle and return to Helvar with the spoils, a victor.

However there are many obstacles to pass before she reaches her goal. Like her rune stone that everyone keeps trying to steal, the mismatched pirates from a country that no longer exists, and the priest with his poison that melts flesh from bones. But the most dangerous obstacle of all are the odd feelings she's developing for her victims, especially the knife-thieving captain Nik. That could make it difficult for her to kill him in the end.

The Real Education of TJ Crowley

$14.99
More Info

What Lessons Did You Learn In the 7th Grade?

Home-schooled in his whiteness, thirteen-year-old TJ Crowley thinks he knows everything about black people. Not that he's experienced anything about them firsthand. Everything he knows about them and the ugly names he flings, he learned from his half-crazed mom. She flips out whenever she sees a black person. And lately, she's been flipping out all the time.

It's the summer of 1968. The nation is divided and on edge over Civil Rights and the war in Vietnam. Even Walter Cronkite seems confused about what's going on. The slaying of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. sparked violent protests coast-to-coast, including Wichita, Kansas, a segregated city where, due to racial discrimination, blacks have been forced to live in one Zip Code until now....

In this landmark work of historical YA fiction, two American families with different pigmentation of skin land side-by-side after the new Fair Housing law makes it a crime to discriminate against people of color. Nobody can prevent the Washingtons and their daughter from moving to the home of their dreams, even in an all-white neighborhood like the Crowley's. Not legally. But the Crowleys are a vengeful brood with ties to very evil men....

For TJ Crowley, it's been a bummer of a summer. With his father away from home and his brother gone off to fight in Vietnam, TJ and his mom are all alone in their house on the hill just one street away from the racial dividing line. When the nightly curfew kicks-in, their doors are locked tight. While his fearful mom drinks her worries away, TJ watches from the living room window as firebombs light the sky....

Despite everything, TJ is excited about going to Brooks Junior High where he plans to be a sports star. But he's worried about the 7thGrade because, with forced integration, black students will be bused over the dividing line to join him. He's also worried about his dorky best friend, Eric, who wears tie-dye and let his hair grow past his collar like a dang hippie.

At thirteen, TJ thinks he knows all there is to know, until the doorbell rings one day and The Real Education of TJ Crowley truly begins....

With wry observations and quirky humor, critically acclaimed novelist Hillary Frank gives voice and depth to six unique characters whose stories intertwine to form a complete picture of one shared summer.

So at a legendary end-of-summer pool party, Ashleigh's friends suggest she text him a picture of herself -- sans swimsuit -- to take with him. Before she can talk herself out of it, Ashleigh strides off to the bathroom, snaps a photo in the full-length mirror, and hits "send."

But when Kaleb and Ashleigh go through a bad breakup, Kaleb takes revenge by forwarding the text to his baseball team. Soon the photo has gone viral, attracting the attention of the school board, the local police, and the media.

Acclaimed author Jennifer Brown brings readers a gripping novel about honesty and betrayal, redemption and friendship, attraction and integrity, as Ashleigh finds that while a picture may be worth a thousand words . . . it doesn't always tell the whole story.
