✏Brass Book Summary : “A fierce, big-hearted, unflinching debut”* novel about mothers and daughters, haves and have-nots, and the stark realities behind the American Dream *Celeste Ng, author of Little Fires Everywhere NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE AND REAL SIMPLE A waitress at the Betsy Ross Diner, Elsie hopes her nickel-and-dime tips will add up to a new life. Then she meets Bashkim, who is at once both worldly and naïve, a married man who left Albania to chase his dreams—and wound up working as a line cook in Waterbury, Connecticut. Back when the brass mills were still open, this bustling factory town drew one wave of immigrants after another. Now it’s the place they can’t seem to leave. Elsie, herself the granddaughter of Lithuanian immigrants, falls in love quickly, but when she learns that she’s pregnant, Elsie can’t help wondering where Bashkim’s heart really lies, and what he’ll do about the wife he left behind. Seventeen years later, headstrong and independent Luljeta receives a rejection letter from NYU and her first-ever suspension from school on the same day. Instead of striking out on her own in Manhattan, she’s stuck in Connecticut with her mother, Elsie—a fate she refuses to accept. Wondering if the key to her future is unlocking the secrets of the past, Lulu decides to find out what exactly her mother has been hiding about the father she never knew. As she soon discovers, the truth is closer than she ever imagined. Told in equally gripping parallel narratives with biting wit and grace, Brass announces a fearless new voice with a timely, tender, and quintessentially American story. Praise for Brass “Lustrous . . . a tale alive with humor and gumption, of the knotty, needy bond between a mother and daughter . . . [Brass] marks the arrival of a writer whose work will stand the test of time.”—O: The Oprah Magazine “An exceptional debut novel, one that plumbs the notion of the American Dream while escaping the clichés that pursuit almost always brings with it . . . [Xhenet] Aliu delivers a living, breathing portrait of places left behind.”—The Boston Globe “The writing blazes on the page. . . . So much about the book is also extraordinarily timely, especially when it focuses on class and culture, and what they really mean.”—San Francisco Chronicle “Aliu is witty and unsparing in her depiction of the town and its inhabitants, illustrating the granular realities of the struggle for class mobility.”—The New Yorker

✏New Waves Book Summary : A wry and edgy debut novel about a heist gone wrong, a secret online life exposed, and a young man’s search for true connection “A brilliant meditation on death and grief in the age of the internet.”—Tommy Orange, author of There, There Lucas and Margo are fed up. Margo is a brilliant programmer tired of being talked over as the company’s sole black employee, and while Lucas is one of many Asians at the firm, he’s nearly invisible as a low-paid customer service rep. Together, they decide to steal their tech startup’s user database in an attempt at revenge. The heist takes a sudden turn when Margo dies in a car accident, and Lucas is left reeling, wondering what to do with their secret—and wondering whether her death really was an accident. When Lucas hacks into Margo’s computer looking for answers, he is drawn into her private online life and realizes just how little he knew about his best friend. With a fresh voice, biting humor, and piercing observations about human nature, Kevin Nguyen brings an insider’s knowledge of the tech industry to this imaginative novel. A pitch-perfect exploration of race and startup culture, secrecy and surveillance, social media and friendship, New Waves asks: How well do we really know one another? And how do we form true intimacy and connection in a tech-obsessed world? Advance praise for New Waves “Nguyen’s stellar debut is a piercing assessment of young adulthood, the tech industry, and racism. . . . Nguyen impressively holds together his overlapping plot threads while providing incisive criticism of privilege and a dose of sharp humor. The story is fast-paced and fascinating, but also deeply felt; the effect is a page-turner with some serious bite.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) “A blistering sendup of startup culture and a sprawling, ambitious, tender debut.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

An unlikely possibility of rescue arrives in the form of a case down Highway 59, in a small lakeside town. With Texas already suffering a new wave of racial violence in the wake of the election of Donald Trump, a black man is a suspect in the possible murder of a missing white boy: the son of an Aryan Brotherhood captain.

✏Cognitive Analytic Therapy and the Politics of Mental Health Book Summary : Cognitive Analytic Therapy and the Politics of Mental Health provides an overview of the development of cognitive analytic therapy (CAT), and illuminates how the political context affects the way in which therapists consider their work and facilitates their practice. This book examines how CAT contributes to wider debates over ‘the politics of mental health’. With contributions from those working in services – including adult mental health, learning disabilities and child and adolescent therapists – the writers consider how contemporary politics devolves responsibility for mental illness onto those suffering distress. The evolving political and social attitudes clients bring to therapy are also addressed in several chapters, and there is a focus on groups in society who have been marginalized and neglected in mental and physical health services. Cognitive Analytic Therapy and the Politics of Mental Health offers a fresh understanding of the contemporary politics of mental health that will be of interest to all therapists and mental health professionals.

✏Corporate PDF Or How I Stopped and Fell Flat in Love with a Copy Machine Book Summary : Corporate.pdf leaves you hanging on the edge of your toilet. Of course, those are my words, the words of the author, but what do others have to say about the book? "Yes, I liked the book Jeffrey, now clean the dishes," raved Sandra Horton, my mother. "I can't believe anybody in our family can write this good," is an honest to goodness quote from Grandma Wilma Horton. And Uncle Bob Bentz called the book "riveting, I couldn't wait to turn the page." Sure, my family loves me, but what about my friends? Big Mike Leonard was heard somewhere in Germany saying the book was "so descriptive you could smell the bird poop." Darron Vigliotti, not only a friend but a highly respected member of the Stratford High Book Review, deemed it "the culture-bearing work of the MTV generation." He even went as far as saying that I "crafted" the book. My former roommate, Kristen Vernet, said "It's about damn time," in an astounded tone. I think she's just glad she doesn't live with me anymore. And Erin Specht, a current coworker, read the first thirty pages but couldn't handle the pressure of coming up with a quote about it in two minutes. I can personally assure you that she hugely anticipates reading the rest of the book. Now you, you don't know me, but that's the point. Read the book and make up your own mind. If you enjoy laughing, crying, and taking dumps then you'll love it.

✏Women of Influence and Distinction Teacher s Manual PDF Book Summary : This teacher manual is based on Betsy Caram’s book Women of Influence and Distinction. In this book the author shows it is very evident from Scripture that women are, and always have been, very much involved in the plan and purposes of God in the earth. Women have been the instruments of God in the past, and He still uses them today to accomplish His ministry to a lost and dying world. This book will examine the lives of many of the women found in Scripture, considering the special characteristics which caused them to be recorded in the Bible’s sacred pages.
