Not Our Summer

Not Our Summer

Author: Casie Bazay Narrator: Eileen Stevens, Grover Gardner, Rebecca Gibel Release Date: 01/11/2021

Five trips, two cousins, one family feud, and a summer that will change their lives forever. It's bad enough that estranged cousins Becka and KJ must see each other at their grandfather's funeral, but when he leaves them a bucket list of places to visit together over the summer, so they can earn their inheritance, it seems like things are about to get much worse. However, with each trip the cousins complete, like riding mules into the Grand Canyon or encountering a bear and a hot tour guide at Yellowstone, they steadily learn about each other and begin to trust one another-that is, until the truth behind Grandpa's bucket list and their family feud is revealed, testing Becka and KJ far beyond their limits. Will they ultimately find a way to accept each other, or will their grandpa's wish to mend his divided family end up buried alongside him inside his bright green casket?

Disasterology: Dispatches from the Frontlines of the Climate Crisis

Disasterology: Dispatches from the Frontlines of the Climate Crisis

Author: Samantha Montano Narrator: Eileen Stevens Release Date: 01/08/2021

Part memoir, part expert analysis, Disasterology is a passionate and personal account of a country in crisis-one unprepared to deal with the disasters of today and those looming in our future. With temperatures rising and the risk of disasters growing, our world is increasingly vulnerable. Most people see disasters as freak, natural events that are unpredictable and unpreventable. But that simply isn't the case - disasters are avoidable, but when they do strike, there are strategic ways to manage the fallout. In Disasterology, Dr. Montano, a disaster researcher, brings readers with her on an eye-opening journey through some of our worst disasters, helping readers make sense of what really happened from a emergency management perspective. She explains why we aren't doing enough to prevent or prepare for disasters, the critical role of media, and how our approach to recovery was not designed to serve marginalized communities. Now that climate change is contributing to the disruption of ecosystems and worsening disasters, Dr. Montano offers a preview of what will happen to our communities if we don't take aggressive, immediate action. In a section devoted to the COVID-19 pandemic, what is thus far our generation's most deadly disaster, she casts light on the many decisions made behind closed doors that failed to protect the public. A deeply moving and timely narrative that draws on Dr. Montano's first-hand experience in emergency management, Disasterology is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand how our country handles disasters, and how we can better face them together.

Wait For It

Wait For It

Author: Jenn McKinlay Narrator: Andrew Eiden, Eileen Stevens Release Date: 01/08/2021

A woman looking for a new lease on life moves to Arizona where she rents a guest house on a gorgeous property with a mysterious owner-a man who teaches her about resilience, courage, and ultimately true love, in this funny, bighearted novel about hope and healing from New York Times bestselling author Jenn McKinlay.   Stuck in a dreary Boston winter, Annabelle Martin would like nothing more than to run away from her current life. She's not even thirty years old, twice-divorced, and has just dodged a marriage proposal… from her ex-husband. When she's offered her dream job as creative director at a cutting-edge graphic design studio in Phoenix, she jumps at the opportunity to start over.   When she arrives in the Valley of the Sun, Annabelle is instantly intrigued by her anonymous landlord. Based on the cranky, handwritten notes Nick Daire leaves her, she assumes he is an old, rich curmudgeon. Annabelle is shocked when she finally meets Nick and discovers that he's her age and uses a wheelchair. Nick suffered from a stroke a year ago, and while there's no physical reason for him not to recover, he is struggling to overcome the paralyzing fear that has kept him a prisoner in his own home.   Despite her promise to herself not to get involved, Annabelle finds herself irresistibly drawn to Nick. And soon she wonders if she and Nick might help each other find the courage to embrace life, happiness, and true love.

Chalked Up (Updated Edition): My Life in Elite Gymnastics

Chalked Up (Updated Edition): My Life in Elite Gymnastics

Author: Jennifer Sey Narrator: Eileen Stevens Release Date: 01/07/2021

Dreams of becoming the next Nadia Comaneci led Jennifer Sey to become a gymnast at the age of six. Her early success and love of the sport propelled her and her family to great sacrifice so that she could become a National Team member and one of America's elite gymnasts by age eleven. But as she set her sights higher, Jennifer began to change, setting her mental and physical health aside in the name of winning. The coaching culture of extreme cruelty drove Jennifer to self-harming behaviors, extreme injuries, an eating disorder, and depression and the adults in her life who were supposed to protect her failed to intervene, swept up in the dream of an Olympic berth. Now Sey reveals the tarnish beneath the gold medals in this powerful portrait of intensity and drive, and the way that adults set children's needs aside in the name of winning. Abusive coaches, manipulative business leaders, and parents blinded by the glory of gold forced Jennifer from the sport to find her own way back to mental health, self-worth, and happiness. Jennifer's personal tale exposes the dark side of sport, now well documented in the film she produced, Athlete A. Her personal journey provides hope for those young athletes struggling to find their way back from abuse and neglect at the hands of adults who put their own needs ahead of children's.

Nowhere Girl: A Memoir of a Fugitive Childhood

Nowhere Girl: A Memoir of a Fugitive Childhood

Author: Cheryl Diamond Narrator: Eileen Stevens Release Date: 01/06/2021

By the age of nine, I will have lived in more than a dozen countries, on five continents, under six assumed identities. I’ll know how a document is forged, how to withstand an interrogation, and most important, how to disappear . . . Wild, heart-wrenching, and unexpectedly funny, Nowhere Girl is an inspiring coming-of-age memoir about running for freedom against the odds. To the young Cheryl Diamond, life felt like one big adventure, whether she was hurtling down the Himalayas in a rickety car or mingling with underworld fixers. Her family appeared to be an unbreakable gang of five. One day they were in Australia, the next South Africa, the pattern repeating as they crossed continents, changed identities, and erased their pasts. What Diamond didn’t yet know was that she was born into a family of outlaws fleeing from the highest international law enforcement agencies, a family with secrets that would eventually catch up to all of them. By the time she was in her teens, Diamond had lived dozens of lives and lies. She had been a practicing Sikh and had also celebrated a bat mitzvah, both while training to be a near-Olympic-level athlete. But as she grew older, love and trust turned to fear and violence, and her family—the only people she had in the world—began to unravel. She started to realize that her life itself might be a big con, and the people she loved, the most dangerous of all. With no way out and her identity burned so often that she had no proof she even existed, all that was left was a girl from nowhere. Surviving would require her to escape, and to do so Diamond would have to unlearn all the rules she grew up with. Like The Glass Castle meets Catch Me If You Can, Nowhere Girl is an impossible-to-believe true story of self-discovery and triumph.

Six Weeks to Live: A Novel

Six Weeks to Live: A Novel

Author: Catherine McKenzie Narrator: Alex Allwine, Caitlin Davies, Eileen Stevens, Julia Whelan Release Date: 01/05/2021

INSTANT INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER Named a Most Anticipated Book by Goodreads, Frolic, and more A gripping psychological suspense novel about a woman diagnosed with cancer who sets out to discover if someone poisoned her before her time is up, from the bestselling author of the "addictive and fast-paced" (Mary Kubica, New York Times bestselling author) thriller You Can't Catch Me. Jennifer Barnes never expected the shocking news she received at a routine doctor's appointment: she has a terminal brain tumor—and only six weeks left to live. While stunned by the diagnosis, the forty-eight-year-old mother decides to spend what little time she has left with her family—her adult triplets and twin grandsons—close by her side. But when she realizes she was possibly poisoned a year earlier, she's determined to discover who might have tried to get rid of her before she's gone for good. Separated from her husband and with a contentious divorce in progress, Jennifer focuses her suspicions on her soon-to-be ex. Meanwhile, her daughters are each processing the news differently. Calm medical student Emily is there for whatever Jennifer needs. Moody scientist Aline, who keeps her mother at arm's length, nonetheless agrees to help with the investigation. Even imprudent Miranda, who has recently had to move back home, is being unusually solicitous. But with her daughters doubting her campaign against their father, Jennifer can't help but wonder if the poisoning is all in her head—or if there's someone else who wanted her dead.

And Now I Spill the Family Secrets: A Memoir

And Now I Spill the Family Secrets: A Memoir

Author: Margaret Kimball Narrator: Eileen Stevens Release Date: 01/04/2021

In the spirit of Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home and Roz Chast’s Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant?, Margaret Kimball’s AND NOW I SPILL THE FAMILY SECRETS begins in the aftermath of a tragedy.  In 1988, when Kimball is only four years old, her mother attempts suicide on Mother’s Day—and this becomes one of many things Kimball’s family never speaks about. As she searches for answers nearly thirty years later, Kimball embarks on a thrilling journey into the secrets her family has kept for decades. Using old diary entries, hospital records, home videos, and other archives, Margaret pieces together a narrative map of her childhood—her mother’s bipolar disorder, her grandmother’s institutionalization, and her brother’s increasing struggles—in an attempt to understand what no one likes to talk about: the fractures in her family. Both a coming-of-age story about family dysfunction and a reflection on mental health, AND NOW I SPILL THE FAMILY SECRETS is funny, poignant, and deeply inspiring in its portrayal of what drives a family apart and what keeps them together.

The Essential Oils Menopause Solution: Alleviate Your Symptoms and Reclaim Your Energy, Sleep, Sex D

Author: Mariza Snyder Narrator: Eileen Stevens Release Date: 01/04/2021

Alleviate the symptoms of perimenopause and menopause with simple and safe DIY diffusions, tonics, and tinctures made with essential oils, from "a true innovator and thought leader in the field of women's hormone health" (JJ Virgin, New York Times bestselling author of The Virgin Diet). What if menopause didn't have to be a struggle? Your body is always changing-necessarily and beautifully-throughout life. During menopause, however, declining ovarian function and fluctuating hormones often clash with environmental toxins, stress, and digestive distress, leading to the symptoms we have been told we should expect: hot flashes, weight gain, brain fog, low libido, and irritability. But as women's hormonal health expert and bestselling author Dr. Mariza Snyder explains, you can and deserve to experience a good night's sleep, clear thinking, stable moods, an energized metabolism, and pain-free sex. The solution is not to medicate the changes, but instead get to the root cause of what's really going on in the body. In The Essential Oils Menopause Solution, Dr. Mariza offers a cutting-edge, comprehensive plan to do just that, including: • a clear explanation of what's happening in your body before, during, and after "the change," and how certain lifestyle triggers exacerbate hormonal imbalance. • the latest science behind the benefits of essential oils as safe, effective solutions for perimenopause and menopause symptoms. • more than 75 recipes and protocols designed to provide solutions for deep, restful sleep, anxiousness, mood swings, fatigue, hot flashes, low libido, brain fog, vaginal dryness, digestive distress, and much more. • a proven 21-day hormone-balancing program complete with meal plans, exercise recommendations, supplementation, and herbal therapies designed to reverse the myriad of symptoms affecting millions of women today. • easy self-care rituals to support every system of your body-from digestion and vaginal health to mitochondrial and liver function-throughout the perimenopausal and menopausal transition. You always deserve a body that works for you, and if you are feeling less than your best, you deserve solutions that promote actual healing. In as little as twenty-one days, The Essential Oils Menopause Solution will help you reclaim vibrant, optimal, and long-lasting health. * This audiobook includes a downloadable PDF containing lists of supplies, essential oils and blends, and the 21-Day Hormone Makeover food lists, daily meal plan, and recipes from the book.

Hype: How Scammers, Grifters, Con Artists and Influencers Are Taking Over the Internet – and Why We'

Author: Gabrielle Bluestone Narrator: Eileen Stevens Release Date: 01/04/2021

From Vice journalist and executive producer of hit Netflix documentary Fyre comes an eye-opening look at the con artists, grifters and snake oil salesmen of the digital age—and why we can’t stop falling for them. 'Scams are hot right now, and Bluestone covers the hottest here.' – Booklist We live in an age where scams are the new normal. A charismatic entrepreneur sells thousands of tickets to a festival that never happened. Respected investors pour millions into a start-up centered around fake blood tests. Reviewers and celebrities flock to London’s top-rated restaurant that’s little more than a backyard shed. These unsettling stories of today’s viral grifters have risen to fame and hit the front-page headlines, yet the curious conundrum remains: Why do these scams happen? Drawing from scientific research, marketing campaigns, and exclusive documents and interviews, Vice reporter Gabrielle Bluestone delves into the irresistible hype that fuels our social media ecosystem, whether it’s from the trusted influencers that peddled Fyre or the consumer reviews that sold Juicero. A cultural examination that is as revelatory as it is relevant, Hype pulls back the curtain on the manipulation game behind the never-ending scam season—and how we as consumers can stop getting played. “Juicy, sharp, savage and wildly entertaining” – Cat Marnell, New York Times-bestselling author of How to Murder Your Life

Author: Gene Stone, Kathy Freston Narrator: Eileen Stevens, Kaleo Griffith Release Date: 01/03/2021

Did you know that if you adopt a vegan diet you can enjoy better sex? Save money? Have glowing skin? You can ward off Alzheimer's, Type 2 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and other metabolic diseases. You can eat delicious burgers. Help save the planet. Join the cool kids, like Gandhi, Tolstoy, Leonardo-and Kyrie Irving, Kat Von D, and Joaquin Phoenix. Oh, and did we mention have better sex?

Those are just some of the 72 reasons we should all be vegan, as compiled and persuasively argued by Gene Stone and Kathy Freston, two of the leading voices in the ever-growing movement to eat a plant-based diet. While plenty of books tell you how to go vegan, 72 Reasons to Go Vegan is the book that tells you why. And it does so in a way that emphasizes not what you'd be giving up, but what you'd be gaining. The tone is upbeat, passionate, and direct, and the facts are plentiful and annotated. Whether because of environment, health, or compassion for animals, more and more people are dipping their toes into Meatless Mondays, eating vegan before 6:00 p.m., choosing Impossible Burgers, or helping books like Thug Kitchen, Forks Over Knives, and Skinny Bitch become national bestsellers-making 72 Reasons to Go Vegan the ideal next book for every food-conscious reader and the perfect gift vegans can give to their friends and family.
