    In this novel of family and redemption, a mother struggles to save her 18-year-old daughter from the devastating consequences of mental illness by forcing her to deal with her bipolar disorder. New York Times best-selling author Bebe Moore Campbell draws on her own powerful emotions and African-American roots, showcasing her best writing yet.

    Kevin says: "Very interesting book on mental health..."

    Story
    (46)

    Doc Ebersole lives with the ghost of Hank Williams—not just in the figurative sense, not just because he was one of the last people to see him alive, and not just because he is rumored to have given Hank the final morphine dose that killed him.

    Robert says: "The Down and Out get a spiritual renewal"
    "Steve Earle is my hero."

    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved Doc's quick wit. The transvestite that enters the story is pretty great, too.

  • Look Me in the Eye: My Life with Asperger's

    Ever since he was small, John Robison had longed to connect with other people, but by the time he was a teenager, his odd habits, an inclination to blurt out non sequiturs, avoid eye contact, dismantle radios, and dig five-foot holes, had earned him the label "social deviant". No guidance came from his mother or his father. It was no wonder he gravitated to machines, which could, at least, be counted on.

    Anne says: "Refreshing!"
    "Wanted more"

    What did you like best about Look Me in the Eye? What did you like least?

    I can't finish this book. Despite my love of rock-n-roll, when the book reached this point I lost interest.
