NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Grammy Award–nominated, platinum-selling musician Halsey is heralded as one of the most compelling voices of her generation. In I Would Leave Me If I Could, she reveals never-before-seen poetry of longing, love, and the nuances of bipolar disorder. In this debut collection, Halsey bares her soul. Bringing the same artistry found in her lyrics, Halsey’s poems delve into the highs and lows of doomed relationships, family ties, sexuality, and mental illness. More hand grenades than confessions, these autobiographical poems explore and dismantle conventional notions of what it means to be a feminist in search of power. Masterful as it is raw, passionate, and profound, I Would Leave Me If I Could signals the arrival of an essential voice. Book cover painting, American Woman, by the author.

Called to a Life of Pain For His Glory

Leave. Me. If. I. Could. “It is better to dwell in a corner of the house top, than in a house shared with a contentious woman” —Proverbs 25:24 There are days when my spirit is so contentious that I would totally leave me if I could.

Everyone experiences pain at one time or another. For some of us, a few days of pain turn into weeks, months, years, and then decades. What do you do when you feel betrayed by your own body? How does faith fit into a life of pain? What can you do when, like Paul, God says, "No" to your request for healing? Can God receive glory from your life? Can you be used in spite of your limitations? These are a few of the questions I have asked as I've had to learn to live with chronic pain caused by fibromyalgia. In Called to a Life of Pain, I share the life lessons Abba has taught me. Sometimes serious, sometimes humorous, always honest, Called to a Life of Pain for HIS Glory is a call to arms for those who are hurting. Don't give up! Don't quit! You matter, you can make a difference in God's kingdom, your pain has a purpose.

Louella Pickett-New was legendary soul singer Wilson Pickett's sister no. 4, to whom he gave the nickname "Lucy Coot" and mostly called just "Coot" throughout his life. She lived with him in New York City as a teenager during the 1960s when he was at the peak of his fame. He threw her a sweet sixteen party. She tried in vain to teach him to dance. She's the "Little Lucy Doin' the Watusi" in his hit song "Land of a Thousand Dances." In this book, named after another of his hits, a beloved .little sister pays tribute to her famous big brother. Merging her own memories with those of the rest of their siblings as well as others who were close to him, Louella paints a portrait of the complex and wounded man behind the powerful and powerfully expressive voice that sang "In the Midnight Hour" and so many more enduring soul classics. Louella is married to Emmett New, and they have two adult children, Katina and Dominic. They reside in Stone Mountain, Georgia. Louella has a master's degree in business and works for a community action agency in Decatur, where she is the accounting manager. She also sings in the choir at her church and volunteered her spare time as the church comptroller for many years. She enjoys baking her famous peach cobbler from her grandmother's recipe.

For 50 years, civilians have avoided hearing about the controversial experiences of Vietnam veterans, many of whom suffer through post-traumatic stress alone. Through interviews conducted with 17 soldiers, this book shares the stories of those who have been silenced. These men and women tell us about life before and after the war. They candidly share stories of 40-plus years lived on the "edge of the knife" and many wonder what their lives would be like if they had come home to praise and parades. They offer their tragedies and successes to newer veterans as choices to be made or rejected.

Students Teachers and Leaders Addressing Bullying in Schools

Me. BeAUTifUL. I was seven years old when I experienced bullying. No one likes people making fun of them, but at the time, I was the victim. ... I hoped that if I could just change a few things, maybe they would leave me alone.

The importance of Boske and Osanloo’s approach to identifying the crisis of bullying in our society lives within the personal stories shared in this book. Readers are reminded that victims of bullying are our own friends, neighbors and classmates, and those at every level in the community are challenged to be part of the solution. The hatred carried out by those who bully impacts all of us, not only the individual victims. Students, Teachers, and Leaders Addressing Bullying in Schools captures the tragedy victims face and the urgency of creating a new dialogue amongst our educators.– Judy Shepard, Founder, Matthew Shepard Foundation The most important experts on bullying are the students, parents, and educators who wrestle with its impact every day. In this book, Boske and Osanloo place them at the center of the dialogue to design lasting solutions and spur the national conscience into action. Bias-based bullying complicates systemic solutions by activating the “isms” and “phobias” that plague us all. The bold collective behind this book calls us to get over our own stuff and double down on our efforts to create safe and affi rming schools for all students.– Eliza Byard, PhD, Executive Director, GLSEN The brilliance and boldness of this book lie in two distinguishing features. First, inspired by the Boske and Osanloo’s vision, the contributors discuss bullying as precisely what it is: not an interpersonal challenge, not a cross-cultural tension, not an issue that can be conflict-mediated away, but a social justice concern that is connected to bigger societal conditions and injustices. Secondly, Boske and Osanloo reject the idea that academics are the experts of everybody’s experiences, and so they open the space on the pages of their book to the targets of bullying and their on-the-ground advocates. The result is revolutionary. If you think you understand bullying, I dare you to read this book.– Paul Gorski, Founder, EdChange, & Associate Professor, Integrative Studies atGeorge Mason University

This book is about the man deep within me. He’s the man who lives within everyone of us, but is locked in the dungeon of our heart and we would never want anyone to hear his thoughts. He’s the bad side of me that no one thinks I have. Everyone believes I’m the gentle person who just takes the slap on the face and then turns the other cheek. What people don’t know is that if I’m hurt by someone and lose control, then the beast within me speaks and acts out. He’s the dragon that once ruled my life, but now is in a cage somewhere in my heart. He’s the person I could be if he gets out of his cage and comes forth. He’s the one who speaks in this book. He’s the side of me you’d never want to know.

This series tells the story of an orphaned girl using her wit and courage to face the harsh world she finds herself in. Emily grows from childhood to adulthood over the course of the three books. Written by Lucy Maud Montgomery, the Canadian author who is perhaps best known for her novel ‘Anne of Green Gables.’ A fascinating novel of the period that is still an interesting and entertaining read today. Lucy Maud Montgomery was born on 30th November 1874, New London, in the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island. Her mother, Clara Woolner (Macneil), died before Lucy reached the age of two and so she was raised by her maternal grandparents in a family of wealthy Scottish immigrants. In 1908 Montgomery produced her first full-length novel, titled 'Anne of Green Gables'. It was an instant success, and following it up with several sequels, Montgomery became a regular on the best-seller list and an international household name.
