<p><b>A <i>New York Times</i> bestseller</b></p><p>If you work hard enough, if you want it enough, if you’re smart and talented and “good enough,” you can do anything.</p><p>Except get pregnant. </p><p>Her whole life, Lucy Knisley wanted to be a mother. But when it was finally the perfect time, conceiving turned out to be harder than anything she’d ever attempted. Fertility problems were followed by miscarriages, and her eventual successful pregnancy plagued by health issues, up to a dramatic, near-death experience during labor and delivery. </p><p>This moving, hilarious, and surprisingly informative memoir, <i>Kid Gloves,</i> not only follows Lucy’s personal transition into motherhood but also illustrates the history and science of reproductive health from all angles, including curious facts and inspiring (and notorious) figures in medicine and midwifery. Whether you’ve got kids, want them, or want nothing to do with them, there’s something in this graphic memoir to open your mind and heart.</p>

Lily soon finds out that going on a school camping trip comes with more than a few challenges. Bunking with an eclectic bunch of girls, hiking chop-busting trails, figuring out her crush’s mixed signals... Even the toughest Girl Guide might wish she’d stayed home, doing her toenails and eating cupcakes. To make matters worse, just when Lily thought she’d seen through all its lies once and for all, her tormentor is back with a vengeance. Surely, she thinks, it’s time to find a way to get rid of this bully for good.

<p>In 2010, Lucy and her long-term boyfriend John broke up. Three long, lonely years later, John returned to New York, walked into Lucy's apartment, and proposed. </p><p>This is not that story. It is the story of what came after: The Wedding.</p><p>DIY maven Lucy Knisley was fascinated by American wedding culture . . . but also sort of horrified by it. So she set out to plan and execute the adorable DIY wedding to end all adorable DIY weddings. And she succeeded. This graphic novel, <i>Something New-</i>-clocking in at almost 300 pages of humor, despair, and eternal love--is the story of how Lucy built a barn, invented a whole new kind of photo booth, and managed to turn an outdoor wedding on a rainy day into a joyous (though muddy) triumph.</p>

En una sociedad casi analfabeta de sus procesos sexuales y reproductivos, este libro nos invita justamente a entender la magnitud de lo que implica el nacimiento humano y a abrir la mirada para enfrentarlo, sin miedo, cuando nos toque el minuto. Nos sugiere redescubrir el nacimiento humano como un evento que trae vida y genera salud. Un proceso sobre el cual debemos efectivamente dejar que algo prime: el instinto.<br /><br />Gonzalo Leiva Rojas<br />Padre de Antonia, matrón<br /><br />Los nacimientos deben ser resguardados, supervisados, y solo se debe intervenir cuando la observación da cuenta que el progreso del parto se ha salido del carril de lo saludable. El intervenir por apurar o empujar un proceso que está siendo normal podría traer consecuencias de las que nos podemos arrepentir. La ciencia ayuda y apoya cuando es utilizada en su justa manera... Instinto es un libro que informa y educa. Tanto por sus contenidos como por la forma en que se abordan, no he tenido la oportunidad de leer otros textos que traten de la manera en que este libro lo hace, el proceso de gestar y parir. Entrega conocimientos desde el área científica, de la matronería y del trabajo de la doula; en este sentido, es interesante ver cómo estos universos y visiones se pueden complementar perfectamente en pos de un objetivo común: el bienestar de la madre y del niño/a.<br /><br />Emiliano Soto Chacón<br />Padre de tres, médico cirujano, ginecobstetra<br /><br />Este libro da testimonio gráfico y disemina vivencias que colaboran de manera inteligente, creativa y comprometida en esta preparación necesaria, lúdica y desafiante, fertilizando el camino de nacer como madre. Enfatizo que este evento histórico en la vida de una mujer es cada vez una nueva oportunidad de sanación y crecimiento. Cuidando el nacimiento de la madre cuidamos la primordial fuente hereditaria de salud mental para las nuevas generaciones. Este libro lo hace y lo aplaudo.<br /><br />María Brandán Escalante<br />Madre, psicóloga social, educadora prenatal

<b><i>New York Times </i>bestseller</b><br /><br />This on-point guide to growing up by Instagram sensation Mari Andrew captures the feelings and comical complexities of millennials and adulthood with essays and illustrations. In the journey toward adulthood, it is easy to find yourself treading the path of those who came before you; the path often appears straight and narrow, with a few bumps in the road and a little scenery to keep you inspired. But what if you don’t want to walk a worn path? What if you want to wander? What if there is no map to guide you through the detours life throws your way? From creating a home in a new city to understanding the link between a good hair dryer and good self-esteem to dealing with the depths of heartache and loss, these tales of the twentysomething document a road less traveled—a road that sometimes is just the way you’re meant to go.
