It's late summer 1793, and the streets of Philadelphia are abuzz with mosquitoes and rumors of fever. Down near the docks, many have taken ill, and the fatalities are mounting. Now they include Polly, the serving girl at the Cook Coffeehouse. But fourteen-year-old Mattie Cook doesn't get a moment to mourn the passing of her childhood playmate. New customers have overrun her family's coffee shop, located far from the mosquito-infested river, and Mattie's concerns of fever are all but overshadowed by dreams of growing her family's small business into a thriving enterprise. But when the fever begins to strike closer to home, Mattie's struggle to build a new life must give way to a new fight-the fight to stay alive.

<b>The story that inspired the major motion picture <i>Beautiful Boy</i> featuring Steve Carell and Timothée Chalamet<i>.</i></b><br /> <br /><b>This <i>New York Times </i>bestselling memoir of a young man’s addiction to methamphetamine tells a raw, harrowing, and ultimately hopeful tale of the road from relapse to recovery.</b><br /><br />Nic Sheff was drunk for the first time at age eleven. In the years that followed, he would regularly smoke pot, do cocaine and Ecstasy, and develop addictions to crystal meth and heroin. Even so, he felt like he would always be able to quit and put his life together whenever he needed to. It took a violent relapse one summer in California to convince him otherwise. In a voice that is raw and honest, Nic spares no detail in telling us the compelling, heartbreaking, and true story of his relapse and the road to recovery. As we watch Nic plunge into the mental and physical depths of drug addiction, he paints a picture for us of a person at odds with his past, with his family, with his substances, and with himself. It's a harrowing portrait—but not one without hope.

<p><b>A National Book Award Finalist!</b></p><p>In kindergarten, Jarrett Krosoczka's teacher asks him to draw his family, with a mommy and a daddy. But Jarrett's family is much more complicated than that. His mom is an addict, in and out of rehab, and in and out of Jarrett's life. His father is a mystery -- Jarrett doesn't know where to find him, or even what his name is. Jarrett lives with his grandparents -- two very loud, very loving, very opinionated people who had thought they were through with raising children until Jarrett came along.</p><p>Jarrett goes through his childhood trying to make his non-normal life as normal as possible, finding a way to express himself through drawing even as so little is being said to him about what's going on. Only as a teenager can Jarrett begin to piece together the truth of his family, reckoning with his mother and tracking down his father. </p><p><i>Hey, Kiddo</i> is a profoundly important memoir about growing up in a family grappling with addiction, and finding the art that helps you survive.</p>

After the suicide of his father, Chad Daniel finds himself on the other side of the world, investigating the mysteries behind the Aokigahara in Japan, a forest known for the lives lost inside it. There Chad is forced to confront a ghost from his past as well as the forces out to destroy his future.<br /><br />"The Curse of the Father is a thought-provoking and engaging message to people from all walks of life." -Joyce Meyer<br /><br />There is a secret in the forest surrounding the quiet town of Aokigahara; many visitors kill themselves deep inside it. The locals don’t want to talk about it, and they despise the forest’s new nickname: The Suicide Forest. But when an obscure Japanese handbook is found at the scene of countless recent suicides in the forest, Chad Daniel dares to investigate the haunted Aokigahara, all the while carrying his own emotional wounds left by the death of his father.<br /><br />Chad is joined by three others: a TV producer who doesn’t believe in ghosts, an aspiring actress who is as beautiful as she is superstitious, and a brazen guide who has a secretive history to the forest and it’s inhabitants. They venture off the beaten path and into the unknown, but when the actress vanishes, Chad fears this endeavor may be more than what he bargained for. As the sun sets and darkness settles over the forest, a dark and seductive voice whispers to Chad, beckoning him to join his father on the other side of eternity.<br /><br />The Curse of the Father is as thrilling as it is poignant - a chilling tale of life after loss. <br /><br />Chad Daniel expertly weaves the tragic suicide of his father and his real-life journey to the Suicide Forest with hints of supernatural metaphor to communicate his testimony of redemption in a compelling and fresh way. The Curse of the Father serves not only as a thrilling story, but also as a narrative in which Chad candidly reveals significant parallels between his thrilling journey through the Aokigahara and the pitfalls we face in our walk of life.
