My heart has been broken a thousand times along the way, like everyone. It is unavoidable, and when it happens, we try to make sense of it, to give it meaning, to name it. We consider what we might have learned possibly something worth sharing. Strength rose out of weakness as the young woman of my past stumbled over insecurities and uncertainties until I learned one of life's most valuable lessons. Of course, there was a price and loss, but mostly, I think, there was the gain. Being true to one's self-takes courage, but we must insist upon it. There will be frightening unknowns, and that turns out to be the big test. My girlish dreams of love and marriage didn't pan out according to folklore and fairytale, but it did afford my greatest blessing. Motherhood would be my most ardent teacher. It would take me closer to heaven than I ever expect to get, and it would drop me firmly to my knees. I stood humbled at the doors of a university and wore out a pocket dictionary in the first year. I made bread and did stacks of laundry, tested the strength of marriage, and felt old at thirty-five in a lecture hall of twenty-year old's. I gazed at a poster outside a classroom "Teaching abroad." There were dreams that never came true and those I hadn't dreamed of, that did. In all, I discovered the length and breadth of the "I" that defines me. Some stepped onto the pages of my writing that I'd lost track of, the daring carefree little red-haired girl, the daughter, and sister, the friend, the sweetheart. Should we meet here on the pages of this book and laugh and cry as memories step forth, yours and mine, we might find hope in the face of loss and grief, stumble upon snippets of wisdom, feel more gratitude maybe even reach toward new resolve, or if for a short while, we simply feel less alone . . .
Three years across the North American continent in a canoe, all alone, Jerry Pushcar accomplished something that at times even he didn't think was possible. Waters Beneath My Feet is the story of Pushcar's incredible journey from New Orleans, Louisiana to Nome, Alaska.

In the year 2093, rogue asteroids bombarded the Earth, throwing massive amounts of dust into the atmosphere, disrupting the planet's delicate biosphere, and rendering it incapable of supporting life. Fortunately, space travel had greatly advanced with colonies on both the Earth's moon and Mars. In this time of crisis, the world's governments set aside their differences and combined their resources to save as many people as possible. Despite their efforts, one third of the world's population was left on the Earth. As predicted, the asteroids struck and plunged it into one-hundred-fifty years of darkness.Gradually, the planet healed itself and there came the day that The Earth Tribunal, the government established on the moon to govern all of humankind, placed space stations above Earth to monitor its progress; and set a date for the return of humanity to its home. Gordon "Dash" Rogers, a space cadet in training to be a spaceship pilot, stumbles onto a closely guarded secret that plunges him into a nightmare adventure that changes his life - and the future of humanity forever.
"The right story at the right time. . . . It’s not just a narrative; it’s an experience. It’s the novel we’ve been waiting for." —The New York Times A boy tries to steer a safe path through the projects in Harlem in the wake of his brother’s death in this outstanding debut novel that celebrates community and creativity. ** WINNER OF THE CORETTA SCOTT KING JOHN STEPTOE AWARD FOR NEW TALENT! ** MICHAEL B. JORDAN TO DIRECT MOVIE ADAPTATION! SIX STARRED REVIEWS! It’s Christmas Eve in Harlem, but twelve-year-old Lolly Rachpaul and his mom aren’t celebrating. They’re still reeling from his older brother’s death in a gang-related shooting just a few months earlier. Then Lolly’s mother’s girlfriend brings him a gift that will change everything: two enormous bags filled with Legos. Lolly’s always loved Legos, and he prides himself on following the kit instructions exactly. Now, faced with a pile of building blocks and no instructions, Lolly must find his own way forward. His path isn’t clear—and the pressure to join a “crew,” as his brother did, is always there. When Lolly and his friend are beaten up and robbed, joining a crew almost seems like the safe choice. But building a fantastical Lego city at the community center provides Lolly with an escape—and an unexpected bridge back to the world. David Barclay Moore paints a powerful portrait of a boy teetering on the edge—of adolescence, of grief, of violence—and shows how Lolly’s inventive spirit helps him build a life with firm foundations and open doors.
