One of the comedy world's fastest-rising stars tells his wild coming of age story during the twilight of apartheid in South Africa and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. Noah provides something deeper than traditional memoirists: powerfully funny observations about how farcical political and social systems play out in our lives.

I liked Trevor Noah before, but I now have immense respect and appreciation for him. He is a remarkable storyteller and highly skilled with accents. The life that he has had is astounding! I was captivated and am left wanting more. I can not recommend this book enough! Excellent.

From the best-selling author Barbara Freethy comes a story of sisterehood, secrets, and lies. Ten years ago, during a party gone out of control, beautiful Emily fell to her death, leaving her best friends and sorority sisters - Natalie, Laura, and Madison - devastated. Now, an unknown writer has written a novel that mirrors their story. But who is he, and how does he know the personal details of their lives?

The character development is weak as are the women. The message seems to be, men and making them happy is the end goal for women. Ugh.
