Life isn't easy at all, as the saying goes," It's a bit like walking down a long, dark corridor, never knowing when the light will go on ". When the light goes on... what if it never does and hope starts dying one breath at a time? Blossom was beginning to let go as well, hope started dying, and she blamed herself, who doesn't though? I blame myself too. She wasn't trying to hold on to anything, believing there was truly nothing that could change the dread that sat upon her heart. Things must change, but will it change in time to save her from herself, or is she far too gone? When she basks in the presence of blank papers and lovely scented colors, waiting to taint the paper, there's someone lurking in the shadows, watching her serenity shatter. Join Blossom on her voyage of acceptance, discovery, hatred, and love.

But Momma still finds ways to count her blessings (lucky stars) from Ruth's new shoes to Poppa's new job. But where Momma sees the 'bright,' Ruth only sees the dark. Her shoes are hand-me-downs from a neighbor and Poppa's new job keeps him away from home for months. And now their town can't afford to keep the school open. Ruth will not be going to fourth grade even though she's one of the brightest students in her class. How can anyone find the good in that? But when Ruth stops thinking of her own problems and focuses on someone else's, she realizes that being a lucky star is the best way to start seeing your own lucky stars.In addition to writing children's books, Judy Young teaches poetry writing workshops for children and educators across the country.

"Bellefleur has a droll, distinct voice, and her one-liners zing off the page, striking both the heart and funny bone... There's a sparkling quality here, one that mirrors the starry title. Bellefleur writes as if she's captured fairy lights in a mason jar, twinkly and lovely within something solid yet fragile." – Entertainment Weekly Following Written in the Stars and Hang the Moon, Lambda Literary Award winner and national bestselling author Alexandria Bellefleur pens another steamy queer rom-com about former best friends who might be each other's second chance at love… Margot Cooper doesn’t do relationships. She tried and it blew up in her face, so she’ll stick with casual hookups, thank you very much. But now her entire crew has found "the one" and she’s beginning to feel like a fifth wheel. And then fate (the heartless bitch) intervenes. While touring a wedding venue with her engaged friends, Margot comes face-to-face with Olivia Grant—her childhood friend, her first love, her first… well, everything. It’s been ten years, but the moment they lock eyes, Margot’s cold, dead heart thumps in her chest. Olivia must be hallucinating. In the decade since she last saw Margot, her life hasn’t gone exactly as planned. At almost thirty, she’s been married... and divorced. However, a wedding planner job in Seattle means a fresh start and a chance to follow her dreams. Never in a million years did she expect her important new client’s Best Woman would be the one that got away. When a series of unfortunate events leaves Olivia without a place to stay, Margot offers up her spare room because she’s a Very Good Person. Obviously. It has nothing to do with the fact that Olivia is as beautiful as ever and the sparks between them still make Margot tingle. As they spend time in close quarters, Margot starts to question her no-strings stance. Olivia is everything she’s ever wanted, but Margot let her in once and it ended in disaster. Will history repeat itself or should she count her lucky stars that she gets a second chance with her first love?

'A ballsy paean to self-determination and body confidence ... will leave you dizzy but exhilarated ... if you read one heart-breaking yet bouncy true-life memoir this year, make sure it's this one' Sunday Times Louise McSharry's passion is to talk to young women (and the men who love them) about being a woman in the modern world. Drawing on her own thirtysomething years of life, in her memoir Fat Chance she writes about everything from surviving a messed up childhood, to crashing out of education and still making it, to figuring out sex, weight, feminism, make-up, friendship, workplace politics and a whole lot more. Though she has the raw material (the early death of her father; her mother's descent into alcoholism; cancer) it was impossible for Louise to write a miserable book. So, though it has its sad moments, Fat Chance is honest, upbeat, irreverent and inspirational - just like a long chat with a best friend. A fabulous, funny and wise best friend! 'An absolutely stunning piece of work ... just a fantastic book' Roisin Ingle, Irish Times 'A brave, heart-breaking yet sometimes funny account of a life full of the issues all women encounter but rarely admit out loud' Examiner 'An open and honest straight-shooting chronicle of a rollercoaster life' RTE Guide 'Heartbreakingly honest. A sharp, well-observed, and ultimately inspirational read. Every woman should read this book' Louise O'Neill 'Louise's life reads like a thriller - I had goose-bumps throughout! Brave, funny, emotional and totally relatable' Roz Purcell 'Hugely enjoyable. So honest and insightful. I loved the positivity and the REALNESS!' Una Mullaly 'Both heart-warming and heart-breaking. Vividly raw and surprisingly visceral' Angela Scanlon 'Searingly honest' Daily Star 'Funny and heart-breaking' Sunday Mirror 'I LOVED your book ... you are inspirational!' Marian Keyes, Twitter 'Loved your book. I feel like you've been writing me incredibly personal letters and that we're now best friends' Shirley Temple Bar, Twitter 'I recommend it to EVERYONE. Really warm, witty and wise' Fatti Burke, Twitter 'A mighty woman, with cojones the size of Mexico and coolness in the face of adversity not seen since John Wayne's heyday' Irish Independent 'She's a straight shooter, honest and to the point' The Herald

As a child, when Robert Bly skinned his knee, his mother would always remind him to count his blessings because the injury could be worse. At the time, he found it irritating, but as an adult, he has realized the wisdom of her approach. Moreover, he has learned that in the overwhelming majority of cases, the sum of our blessings is greater than the sum of our problems. With that in mind, he offers Count Your Blessings, a fascinating mix of more than 100 often overlooked blessings-from the seemingly trivial to the highly significant. The brief entries-on subjects such as anesthesia, flowers, opposable thumbs, and Post-it Notes-are accompanied by a unique self-scoring system that allows the reader to see in mathematical terms that the blessings in our lives almost always outnumber the misfortunes. Readers will experience an increasing level of gratitude as they are reminded of the everyday items and experiences that make life more enjoyable and satisfying.

D?espite having had its obituary written many times, the movie musical remains a flourishing twenty-first century form, and as this volume demonstrates, one that exists far beyond the confines of Broadway and Hollywood. The Sound of Musicals examines the films, stars, issues and traditions of the genre from the 1930s to the present day. Featuring sixteen original essays by leading international scholars, this illuminating collection addresses the complex history and global variety of the movie musical, and considers the delight and passionate engagement that musicals continue to inspire in audiences around the world. The contributors address key issues for understanding the movie musical: questions of genre and generic traditions; questions of history, bringing fresh perspectives to a consideration of Classical Hollywood musicals; and the musical beyond Hollywood, looking at alternatives to the Hollywood model from the 'New Hollywood' and American independent cinema to Bollywood and other national musical traditions. Individual chapters consider key musical stars such as Frank Sinatra, Julie Andrews and Barbra Streisand; film-makers including Robert Altman and Christophe Honoré, and classic musicals such as South Pacific (1958) and Hairspray (1988). In his introduction to the volume, Steven Cohan addresses the significance and enduring appeal of this multi-faceted genre, and considers its recent renaissance with movies such as the High School Musical franchise, and the success of the television series Glee.
