An extraordinary fictional diary by a great picture book artist. There are seven different diaries in Dear Diary, each telling the events of one busy day from a different point of view. The first is straightforward enough; it is the account of a young girl called Lucy. She tells of her day at school, taking her dog Bubu for a walk in the park and her parents' party in the evening. The second diary is a little more curious - it is the journal of a chair overturned in the classroom. Next is Spider's Diary, followed by Firefly's Diary, Knife and Fork's Diary, Bubu's Diary and Ladybird's Diary. The book ends with a PS from Lucy. It was a good day, she concludes - and this book will surely receive a similar accolade from readers - young and old.

An Exacting Mother, her Free-spirited Son, and Their Bittersweet Adventures in an Elite Japanese School

When her five-year-old son passed the rigorous entrance exams to one of Japan’s top private elementary schools, Makihara, a single mother, thought they were on their way. Taro would wear the historic dark blue uniform and learn alongside other little Einsteins while she basked in the glory of his high achievements with the other perfect moms. Together they would climb the rungs into the country’s successful elite. But it didn’t turn out that way. Taro had other things in mind. While set in Japan, their struggles in the school’s hyper-competitive environment mirror those faced by parents here in the US and raise the same questions about the best way to educate a child—especially one that doesn’t quite fit the mold. Public or private? Competitive or nurturing? Standardized or individualized. Helicopter parenting or free-range? Amid this frenzied debate, how does one find balance and maintain a healthy parent-child relationship? Dear Diary Boy is an intensely personal, heartwarming, and heartbreaking chronicle of one mother and child’s experience in a prestigious private Tokyo school. It’s a tale that will resonate with all parents as we try to answer the age-old questions of how best to educate our children and what, truly, is in their best interests versus what is in our own.

Much against the wishes of my folks, I quit before graduation and went into programming. ThatOCOs how I met my ex-husband.

This is KATHYNE L. JACKSON's memoir of her personal journey to lose weight - 63 pounds - and the struggles she endured along the way. She was like everyone else, on the yo-yo trail to unhealthiness. She would play at losing 10 pounds and then gain 15 back, complaining all the way. She would get discouraged and eat more ice cream and chocolate and then hate herself for being weak. She would walk for three days and then would give up because on day four it rained. She would purchase a stationary bike and then use it as a clothes rack. And she continued to watch her weight climb to over 200 pounds. But still she did nothing. Then one day her doctor told her she had to get healthy, that if she did not start taking care of her weight, if she did not become serious about her cholesterol levels, she could develop diabetes. This knowledge scared her to finally make the conscious decision to get healthy. She did not make her goal weight, but she came close. She did lose 50 pounds. It was the longest 13 months of her life.

The End of a Diary

“[Manguso] has written the memoir we didn’t realize we needed.” —The New Yorker In Ongoingness, Sarah Manguso continues to define the contours of the contemporary essay. In it, she confronts a meticulous diary that she has kept for twenty-five years. “I wanted to end each day with a record of everything that had ever happened,” she explains. But this simple statement belies a terror that she might forget something, that she might miss something important. Maintaining that diary, now eight hundred thousand words, had become, until recently, a kind of spiritual practice. Then Manguso became pregnant and had a child, and these two Copernican events generated an amnesia that put her into a different relationship with the need to document herself amid ongoing time. Ongoingness is a spare, meditative work that stands in stark contrast to the volubility of the diary—it is a haunting account of mortality and impermanence, of how we struggle to find clarity in the chaos of time that rushes around and over and through us. “Bold, elegant, and honest . . . Ongoingness reads variously as an addict’s testimony, a confession, a celebration, an elegy.” —The Paris Review “Manguso captures the central challenge of memory, of attentiveness to life . . . A spectacularly and unsummarizably rewarding read.” —Maria Popova, Brain Pickings
