<b>National bestseller</b><br /><b>2017 National Book Critics Circle (NBCC) Finalist<br /> ABA Indies Introduce Winter / Spring 2017 Selection<br /> Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Spring 2017 Selection<br /> ALA 2018 Notable Books Selection<br /><br /> An intimate and poignant graphic novel portraying one family’s journey from war-torn Vietnam, from debut author Thi Bui</b>.<br />  <br /> This beautifully illustrated and emotional story is an evocative memoir about the search for a better future and a longing for the past. Exploring the anguish of immigration and the lasting effects that displacement has on a child and her family, Bui documents the story of her family’s daring escape after the fall of South Vietnam in the 1970s, and the difficulties they faced building new lives for themselves.<br />  <br /> At the heart of Bui’s story is a universal struggle: While adjusting to life as a first-time mother, she ultimately discovers what it means to be a parent—the endless sacrifices, the unnoticed gestures, and the depths of unspoken love. Despite how impossible it seems to take on the simultaneous roles of both parent and child, Bui pushes through. With haunting, poetic writing and breathtaking art, she examines the strength of family, the importance of identity, and the meaning of home.<br />  <br /> In what Pulitzer Prize–winning novelist Viet Thanh Nguyen calls “a book to break your heart and heal it,” <i>The Best We Could Do</i> brings to life Thi Bui’s journey of understanding, and provides inspiration to all of those who search for a better future while longing for a simpler past.

<p><b>Tom Brantley, A.K.A. Super Drunk, is a complex superhero (or perhaps anti-hero?) who discovers that he has the unique power of psychokinesis whenever getting drunk or high.</b><br /> <br />Revered as Burlington City's guardian, he loves to put on a show for his beloved fans when saving lives and fighting crime, almost as much as partying and fornicating. Despite the citizens egging on his reckless behavior, his family and friends worry about his failing health. With each alcohol-induced blackout, Tom revisits his high school years. He recalls meeting his first love, Amy Cougar, and how she couldn't handle his shallow, celebrity lifestyle. But after consuming psychedelics—shrooms or <i>'magic mushrooms'</i>—it seems like his past exists as an odd parallel reality to his present life.</p><p>This sexy and thought-provoking dark superhero story takes readers over the edge and into the seedy world of SuperDrunk, where fighting bad guys and getting hot chicks might be nothing more than an escape for a high-school loser trying to extricate himself from the realities of life.</p><p><b>Page Up and Order Now.</b></p>
