Summary : “Hysterically droll, touching, elegant, and wise—a coming-of-age story from someone who possibly came of age before her parents” (Patricia Marx, New Yorker writer and bestselling author), Trying to Float is a seventeen-year-old’s darkly funny, warmhearted memoir about growing up in New York City’s legendary Chelsea Hotel. Meet the family Rips: father Michael, a lawyer turned writer with a penchant for fine tailoring; mother Sheila, a former model and renowned sculptor who matches her welding outfits with couture; and daughter Nicolaia, a precocious and wry high school student at work on a highly unusual extracurricular activity, an official record of her peculiar childhood. Nicolaia is a perpetual outsider who has struggled to find her place in schools populated by cliquish girls and loudmouthed boys. But at the Chelsea, Nicolaia she has found her tribe. There’s her neighbor Stormé, a tall albino woman who keeps a pink handgun strapped to her ankle; her babysitter, Jade, who may or may not have a second career as an escort; her friend Artie, former proprietor of New York’s most famous nightclubs. The kids at school might never understand her, but as Nicolaia endeavors to fit in, she realizes that the Chelsea’s motley crew could hold the key to surviving the perils of her adolescence. “Nicolaia Rips is an old-soul sophisticate. Trying to Float is like Eloise meets Wes Anderson” (Elle), and not since Holden Caulfield has there been such a fabulously compelling teen guide to New York City. Rips’s debut is “charmingly self-deprecating and very funny…at once highly insightful and deeply familiar” (W Magazine), a triumphant parable for the power of embracing difference in all its forms. Her “engaging story with a big heart…will appeal to adults and teens alike” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review).

Summary : 'They were like balloons that had escaped a child's grasp - pointlessly floating. "Focus!" I would plead with my mother. And my father was forever being diverted.' Allow us to introduce you to the Rips family: Michael, Sheila and daughter Nicolaia, the last denizens of New York's famous Chelsea Hotel.

Summary : A Kirkus Reviews Best Book of the Year A Chicago Public Library Best of the Best of the Year "Profoundly moving . . . Will take your breath away." --Kathleen Glasgow, author of Girl in Pieces A stunningly gorgeous and deeply hopeful portrayal of living with mental illness and grief, from an exceptional new voice. Biz knows how to float. She has her people, her posse, her mom and the twins. She has Grace. And she has her dad, who tells her about the little kid she was, and who shouldn't be here but is. So Biz doesn't tell anyone anything. Not about her dark, runaway thoughts, not about kissing Grace or noticing Jasper, the new boy. And she doesn't tell anyone about her dad. Because her dad died when she was seven. And Biz knows how to float, right there on the surface--normal okay regular fine. But after what happens on the beach--first in the ocean, and then in the sand--the tethers that hold Biz steady come undone. Dad disappears and, with him, all comfort. It might be easier, better, sweeter to float all the way away? Or maybe stay a little longer, find her father, bring him back to her. Or maybe--maybe maybe maybe--there's a third way Biz just can't see yet. Debut author Helena Fox tells a story about love and grief, about inter-generational mental illness, and how living with it is both a bridge to someone loved and lost and, also, a chasm. She explores the hard and beautiful places loss can take us, and honors those who hold us tightly when the current wants to tug us out to sea. "Give this to all your...friends immediately." --Cosmopolitan.com "I haven't been so dazzled by a YA in ages." --Jandy Nelson, author of I'll Give You the Sun (via SLJ) "Mesmerizing and timely." --Bustle "Nothing short of exquisite." --PopSugar "Immensely satisfying" --Girls' Life * "Lyrical and profoundly affecting." --Kirkus (starred review) * "Masterful...Just beautiful." --Booklist (starred review) * "Intimate...Unexpected." --PW (starred review) * "Fox writes with superb understanding and tenderness." --BCCB (starred review) * "Frank [and] beautifully crafted."--BookPage (starred review) "This book will explode you into atoms." --Margo Lanagan, author of Tender Morsels "Helena Fox's novel delivers. Read it." --Cath Crowley, author of Words in Deep Blue "This is not a book; it is a work of art." --Kerry Kletter, author of The First Time She Drowned "Perfect...Readers will be deeply moved." --Books+Publishing

Summary : What Is the Key to Living without Fear? As you look ahead to tomorrow, it is hard not to worry--about financial pressures, family issues, problems at work and so much more. You may even feel helpless as worry threatens to drain your life of joy. But there is good news. "We must keep trusting God, even when the world looks out of control, knowing that He is in charge and will take care of every situation that worries us." Bestselling author Kent Crockett explains how God can guide you, even now, along His chosen path, without your realizing it--from the circumstances you face to the people you meet--to accomplish His plan. Crockett reveals the two necessities that enable you to face the future without fear: believing that God is in control and learning to let Him guide you. The Sure Cure for Worry helps you to do both so you can live one day at a time, release your problems to God and live life to the fullest.

Summary : Kristin Ginelli, Chicago-cop-turned-religion-professor, is horrified when her new Muslim faculty colleague is targeted with a hate crime by self-styled white supremacists. She investigates, wading into the disgusting waters of white supremacist hate online. She is stunned to learn how young people and adults are being tempted into hate and violence on the Internet. As she teaches her religion classes, she comes to realize this is what philosophers and theologians have meant by the demonic. In this kind of extremism, hate rises to the surface and it is hard to keep it down. When a student is killed, and Kristin is threatened, she has to cut through the university's stalling and what looks increasingly like corruption in the Chicago police and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to find the killers and try to stem the tide of hate.

Summary : Chinami Chiba, a young genius, and his friends witnessed a purse-snatching at a tourist spot. They decided to chase the thief to catch him. They thought they trapped the thief, when they drove him into the shore of a river, which was too wide to swim across. The thief narrowly escaped the tight spot by using a large boat. The chasers had to use a small boat (holding up to only two passengers) to catch up on the runaway thief. To make matters worse, some of the chasers did not want to go on board with certain specific others. How do they have to plan the passenger combinations of the boat boarding and the sequence of the round trips between the two opposing shores, to get all of them to the other shore and continue the pursuit? The so-called "river crossing puzzle", a famous logic puzzle, is ideally harmonized with the mystery fiction by Takafumi Takada, a popular mystery writer in Japan. The author is challenging the reader, namely YOU, to solve the brain twister.
