✏Trying to Float Book 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).

✏Introduction to Equestrian Sports Book Summary : This is not another "how to ride" book, its purpose is to help parents and riders who are new to the world of equestrian sports or those changing from one type of competition to another. The major disciplines are covered in four separate chapters: hacking/showing, dressage, showjumping and eventing. Each chapter begins with a brief introduction to the discipline showing how it originated and its current status. A detailed description of the discipline follows including types and classes of horses, types and levels of competition, who runs the competitions, which rules apply and how the competition is judged. At the end of each chapter is a section on the "ground rules" which is really a distillation of the author's own experience which takes the mystery and worry out of the whole experience. It covers topics such as how to find out what competitions are taking place and how to enter, which dressage tests apply, what to wear, what to do when you arrive, where best to park, where you can and cannot warm up, checking your gear and reporting to the judge. The appendices at the end of the book contain illustrations of arenas and the different types of bits and saddles, website links and examples of competition programs.

✏Yaroslaw s Revenge Book Summary : Halimpex, of Lviv, Ukraine had just been recognized as the world’s largest volume producer of glass Christmas tree ornaments, when on November 14th, 2006, Bohdan Datsko its owner, was gunned down as his white C-class Mercedes passed through the security gate of his factory. Despite seven bullet wounds to the neck and chest, nobody had heard anything; nobody saw a gun; and no cartridge casings were found on the scene. Bohdan’s driver, sitting beside the victim was unaware of anything amiss until he saw the blood. Six days later, Mad Max Kurochkin, a notorious Russian gangster, was arrested on charges of theft and extortion upon his landing in Kyiv while on his way to make preparations for President Putin’s visit to Ukraine. Three days later, on November 23rd, Alexander Litvinenko died in London, England, of Polonium 210 radiation poisoning. On March 31, 2007, Mad Max Kurochkin was assassinated by a sniper's bullet, while he was being led from a Kyiv courthouse to a waiting paddy wagon. The sniper was not apprehended. In today’s Ukraine, reality is much stranger than fiction. But Yaroslaw’s Revenge threads a story through this tangled web to culminate in a story even stranger still... The western world’s press reported an act of piracy in the Baltic Sea, just off the coast of Sweden on July 24, 2009. Then, on July 28, the victim freighter, the MV Arctic Sea, sailed past Dover reporting, when hailed by the British Coast Guard, that all was in order. Yet the Russian Navy had already sent its entire Black Sea Fleet in pursuit of this ship - that was ostensibly carrying nothing but lumber. The MV Arctic Sea totally missed its destination port of Bejaia Algeria, and instead sailed slowly southward along Africa’s western coast. In Yaroslaw’s Revenge the tale of the MV Arctic Sea’s actual cargo is the thread that links murder, assassination, piracy, espionage, drugs and war with the untimely death, on the third anniversary of that of Alexander Litvinenko, of Maj. Gen. Anton Surikov of the Russian GRU. The Cold War thriller is back! This time it is Canada’s ITAC, the Integrated Threat Assessment Center, that holds the key to interdiction of a nuclear threat.
