A Reese Witherspoon x Hello Sunshine Book Club YA Pick “A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow is an absolute delight. Cozier than a hand-knit gray cardigan and richer than Abuela’s pastelito recipe, Namey takes you from Miami to Winchester, and leaves your heart belonging to both.” —Rachael Lippincott, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Five Feet Apart Love & Gelato meets Don’t Date Rosa Santos in this charming, heartfelt story following a Miami girl who unexpectedly finds love—and herself—in a small English town. For Lila Reyes, a summer in England was never part of the plan. The plan was 1) take over her abuela’s role as head baker at their panadería, 2) move in with her best friend after graduation, and 3) live happily ever after with her boyfriend. But then the Trifecta happened, and everything—including Lila herself—fell apart. Worried about Lila’s mental health, her parents make a new plan for her: Spend three months with family friends in Winchester, England, to relax and reset. But with the lack of sun, a grumpy inn cook, and a small town lacking Miami flavor (both in food and otherwise), what would be a dream trip for some feels more like a nightmare to Lila…until she meets Orion Maxwell. A teashop clerk with troubles of his own, Orion is determined to help Lila out of her funk, and appoints himself as her personal tour guide. From Winchester’s drama-filled music scene to the sweeping English countryside, it isn’t long before Lila is not only charmed by Orion, but England itself. Soon a new future is beginning to form in Lila’s mind—one that would mean leaving everything she ever planned behind.

"BOLD. IMPORTANT. BEAUTIFUL.” - Laura Taylor Namey, New York Times bestselling author of A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow In Erin Hahn’s Never Saw You Coming, sometimes it takes a leap of faith to find yourself. Eighteen-year-old Meg Hennessey just found out her entire childhood was a lie. So instead of taking a gap year before college to find herself, she ends up traveling north to meet what’s left of the family she never knew existed - all while questioning the ideals she grew up with. While there, she meets Micah Allen, a former pastor’s kid whose dad ended up in prison, leaving Micah with his own complicated relationship with faith. The clock is ticking on his probation hearing and Micah, now 19, feels the pressure to forgive - even when he can’t possibly forget. As Meg and Micah grow closer, they are confronted with the heavy flutterings of first love and all the complications it brings. Together, they must navigate the sometimes-painful process of cutting ties with childhood beliefs as they build toward something truer and straight from the heart. "Heartfelt and utterly genuine... I already want to reread it." - Erin A. Craig, New York Times bestselling author of Small Favors

"The Stories of Andrea T.A.H. Rossi" contains two complete novels: the original story of the young widow, Andrea: "The Widow's Web," and the new sequel, "Letters to Andrea." It is the heart-wrenching, moving story of a young woman from Edison, NJ who thought she had everything in life until tragedy greets her as a young newlywed. The stories invite the reader into a rollercoaster ride of reality when the loss of a loved one becomes 'loss of loved ones' very early in a woman's life. The outcome is unpredictable and informative about a Third World country's society which uncovers true-to-life superstitions and condemnations.

The Widows Web is a story that carries several messages. Love is not diminished by wealth, nor is it protected. The house gift was written to demonstrate parental love that carries no price tag. Doug Harrison's presentation of the gift was written with personal empathy. The story also reminds us that while we may plan our futures, destiny often intervenes and takes us to a new path where the sun has not traveled, but where there can be comfort in the far off sounds of a bird singing to the forest. Andrea's voyage to a far off land was as much of a surprise to her as it is to the reader!

Meeting your students where they are, COMPOSING TO COMMUNICATE: A STUDENT’S GUIDE prepares and engages an increasingly varied first-year composition classroom, in which all students need to achieve the same course outcomes but are not all learning at the same skill level. The fundamental concept behind COMPOSING TO COMMUNICATE: A STUDENT’S GUIDE is that writing is a communication skill grounded in problem solving. The textbook uses accessible language and opportunities for practice to help students conceptualize writing tasks with key communication goals in mind and become more confident, efficient, and effective writers, in college and in their professional lives. Writing project chapters cover evaluations, arguments, narratives, profiles, literary analyses, and researched writing, and include chapters focused on community engagement and vital 21st century literacy skills. Every Part 2 chapter shows real student work in proposal and final draft, and includes an interview with the student writer. This edition has been updated to reflect guidelines from the 2016 MLA HANDBOOK, Eighth Edition. Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.

In the late 60s, three teenagers from around the globe are making their way in the world: Enrique Florit, from Cuba, living in southern California with his flamboyant magician father; Marta Claros, getting by in the slums of San Salvador; Leila Rezvani, a well-to-do surgeon's daughter in Tehran. We follow them through the years, surviving war, disillusionment, and love, as their lives and paths intersect. With its cast of vividly drawn characters, its graceful movement through time, and the psychological shifts between childhood and adulthood, A Handbook to Luck is a beautiful, elegiac, and deeply emotional novel by beloved storyteller Cristina García.
