Jumping in Mud Puddles by Vickie Mendenhall

Raise your hand if you-
1) Have ever been chased by a nun.
2) Have been stung by a bee because it was injured and you tried to hug it and then you went into anaphylactic shock because the damn thing stung you on the cheek and you had to be rushed to the hospital (The bee didn't make it).
3) Have ever made a tent caterpillar/dandelion meal in your cabin in the woods and have fed it to unsuspecting neighbor children.
4) Were slipped a mild tranquilizer and was told it was a car sick pill……for years.
5) Have killed the Boogeyman after lying in wait for it/him under your bed.
6) Have peed your pants from laughing because a monkey has stepped onto your best friend's head and the best friend doesn't know what is on her head.
7) Have puked on the school bus and all the kids had to raise their feet while the bus was going up hills.

If you have not been able to raise your hand for any of these normal every day experiences, you are invited to join Vickie as she revisits her childhood during the fifties, sixties, and early seventies. Visit the private Catholic school where she was sent because she flunked an early entrance exam. Sister Potato Head is waiting to stick you into the low reading group, "The Slow Sloths." Follow Vickie as she takes you for a walk around the best neighborhood in Weirton, West Virginia. Don't eat anything she tries to feed you in her cabin in the woods, however, especially if she is giggling as she hands it to you, but yet promises it doesn't contain "real" things. Jumping in Mud Puddles is a witty self-deprecating memoir with stories that will either make you smile because it reminds you of your own childhood or it will make you laugh because you are glad you weren't a picky, hyper, big fat liar like Vickie.

Elizabeth's Daughter by Thea Thomas

Excerpt From Elizabeth's Daughter:

Elizabeth climbed the back stairs to her bedroom. The house hovered over her, entirely too huge now that she lived alone. Everywhere she moved, she found the presence of Grandfather – some little item of his, or a faint scent of his aftershave, or a note written on the back of an envelope as was his habit. She'd never before realized how little of her there was in these rooms.

Muffled thuds, came from outside – she rolled the window half-way up to hear every pop and crackle of the fireworks at Disneyland in the near distance. The blue, pink, silver and gold sparkling, transient lights poured from the sky. All her life she'd watched the fireworks from her bedroom window.

As she stared at the fireworks through her reflection in the dark glass of the window, her face appeared to change – it became more full, her hair darker and straight. She couldn’t even see her eyes for the glinting of dark-rimmed glasses, though she’d never worn glasses in her life.

Startled, she stepped back from the window. The strangest sensation ran through her body from head to toes. A muscle in her forearm began to jump. She turned on all the lights in her room and slipped into a nightgown. But she couldn’t shake the image of that face – that was not her face – reflected in the window....

Vainglorious Sun by Mark D. Longo

Famed biologist Xavier del Rojo Reino is an environmentalist, a genius, and a direct descendent of the last Mayan kings. He is also, quite possibly, insane. Recognizing a link between the modern concept of “swarm intelligence” and ancient notions of “spirit” and “soul,” Dr. Rojo Reino has come to believe he can commune with the spirits of the forests. He has heard their desperate pleas for mercy. He has become consumed by their wailing cries for revenge. He intends to perform “the ultimate sacrifice” to restore balance and harmony to the universe.

Documentary film maker Jared Foster travels to Guatemala to save his beloved rainforests from development. With the help of his beautiful but volatile lover and a loyal anthropologist friend, he gathers clues to an unfolding prophecy of apocalypse. People have been mysteriously disappearing from the region, the Mayans predict the end of time, and a satellite dish atop a remote jungle ruin hints at the resurgence of a conquered race. Though Jared travels to save the environment, he will be forced to make an unexpected decision. Nature, it seems, has already found a champion and it is no longer the rainforests that are in danger.

Duse Ammadon has been without Skylar for over four hundred years and he'll not wait another minute.
