A heart-rending, honest account of the effect a stroke can have on family life. Nick Wisbey was 15 when his 49 year old father, Stan, was struck down by a stroke that was to leave him speechless and unable to communicate verbally. Instantaneously, the stroke relegated Stan from the head of the household, the breadwinner, to an invalid. The devastation on losing his ability to speak caused massive frustrations - with the family left to guess from his gesticulations what it was he wanted. The tensions mounted and Stan understandably struggled to adapt to his changed life - over time he sank into a world of TV watching, reading and silence. The family were left to cope as best they could, but felt that the stroke had cheated them out of a husband and father. The frustrations only increased as the years passed and the family grew. Stan Wisbey survived his stoke for twenty eight years, retaining the good looks and outward composure he'd always possessed, but never having resolved his anger with the illness. A further stroke took its toll on his well being and cognative abilities. What are you thinking of Dad? is Nick Wisbey's touching account of those 28 years. They focus on his relationship with his father - the highs and lows, the love and hate - as well as his mother's caring devotion to the family during this time. This account is unique because of the emphasis on the long term effect living with serious illness.

“A superbly entertaining read.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “Will win over teens.” —School Library Journal (starred review) A teen boy’s world gets turned upside-down when a zoo of exotic animals takes over his small town in this wickedly funny, heartbreakingly honest novel that’s perfect for fans of David Arnold. In Makersville, Indiana, people know all about Ronney—he’s from that mixed-race family with the dad who tried to kill himself, the pill-popping mom, and the genius kid sister. If having a family like that wasn’t bad enough, the local eccentric at the edge of town decided one night to open up all the cages of his exotic zoo—lions, cheetahs, tigers—and then shoot himself dead. Go figure. Even more proof that you can’t trust adults to do the right thing. Overnight, news crews, gun control supporters, and gun rights advocates descend on Makersville, bringing around-the-clock news coverage, rallies, and anti-rallies with them. With his parents checked out, Ronney is left tending to his sister’s mounting fears of roaming lions, stopping his best friend from going on a suburban safari, and shaking loose a lonely boy who follows Ronney wherever he goes. Can Ronney figure out a way to hold it together as all his worlds fall apart? From acclaimed author Crystal Chan comes an incisive tale of love, loyalty, and the great leaps we take to protect the people and places we love most.

I was too busy thinking about the new guy. I didnt notice the fact that the door closest to me was open until I walked into it. Rubbing the red mark on my forehead I peered around the solid oak door. It was then that I noticed the person standing on the front porch. I went bright pink, realising that he had just seen me walk into a door. The new guy was standing on our front porch, his arms crossed at his chest, a faint smile tugging at the corner of his mouth. Way to go Alina. Alina Dimir comes from a long line of Vampires. Her family moved from Romania ten years ago, and since then shes had to deal with her fifteen older and somewhat annoying siblings, not to mention all the rumours about her family that have been floating around school. Her everyday routine is broken by the arrival of the mysterious new guy at school, Lupul Daciana. Alina cant stop thinking about him or his blonde tipped, messy black hair, and, lets be honest, his lips. So when shes forbidden to befriend him, Alina is torn. Does she follow her Covens laws and stay away from him? Or does she let herself give into her emotions? Is it fate or just a coincidence that Lupul once lived in Romania too? Is it possible for Alina and Lupul to bypass her familys laws and have a future together, or is it doomed from the beginning?

When Christal Presley's father was eighteen, he was drafted to Vietnam. Like many men of that era who returned home with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), he was never the same. Christal's father spent much of her childhood locked in his room, gravitating between the deepest depression and unspeakable rage, unable to participate in holidays or birthdays. At a very young age, Christal learned to walk on eggshells, doing anything and everything not to provoke him, but this dance caused her to become a profoundly disturbed little girl. She acted out at school, engaged in self-mutilation, and couldn't make friends. At the age of eighteen, Christal left home and didn't look back. She barely spoke to her father for the next thirteen years. To any outsider, Christal appeared to be doing well: she earned a BA and a master's, got married, and traveled to India. But despite all these accomplishments, Christal still hadn't faced her biggest challenge—her relationship with her father. In 2009, something changed. Christal decided it was time to begin the healing process, and she extended an olive branch. She came up with what she called "The Thirty Day Project," a month's worth of conversations during which she would finally ask her father difficult questions about Vietnam. Thirty Days with My Father is a gritty yet heartwarming story of those thirty days of a daughter and father reconnecting in a way that will inspire us all to seek the truth, even from life's most difficult relationships. This beautifully realized memoir shares how one woman and her father discovered profound lessons about their own strength and will to survive, shedding an inspiring light on generational PTSD.
