They are skin-refreshing, figure-restoring, corn-busting, corset-typing, blackhead-eradicating, flesh-reducing, wrinkle-dissolving, smile-enhancing, compliment-inducing wonder preparations for the busy girl about town.

Usually Leanne was happy and she never showed her mother her sadness or upsets. She didn't want her mother to worry. Leanne felt her mother didn't deserve that. She knew she was putting her through a lot of pain now, but she couldn't help it. In author Shun Mie's latest novel, Never Too Late, three generations of women strive for success in business, parenting, and love. Leanne is in love with James, but his parents are opposed to the match. Mia, Leanne's mother, worries about her daughter's relationship with James. But she becomes occupied with her own love life when she reconnects with Eric, an old friend. Suchien, Mia's mother, encourages her daughter and granddaughter to make the most of their lives by sharing with them lessons from her life. The three women in Never Too Late were raised in vastly different ways, yet they all arrive at similar conclusions on how to be independent and successful women in today's difficult world. Leanne, Mia, and Suchien experience the same problems every woman in today's world must face. Their trials, surprises, and triumphs create an endearing tale that shows the strength of the human soul.

From the #1 bestselling author of Heat, Travel Team and Million-Dollar Throw comes a story of every football kid’s dream come true. 12-year-old Charlie is a fantasy football guru. He may be just a bench warmer for his school's football team, but when it comes to knowing and loving the game, he's first-string. He even becomes a celebrity when his podcast gets noticed by a sports radio host, who plays Charlie's fantasy picks for all of Los Angeles to hear. Soon Charlie befriends the elderly owner of the L.A. Bulldogs -- a fictional NFL team -- and convinces him to take a chance on an aging quarterback. After that, watch out . . . it's press conferences and national fame as Charlie becomes a media curiosity and source of conflict for the Bulldogs general manager, whose job Charlie seems to have taken. It's all a bit much for a kid just trying to stay on top of his grades and maintain his friendship with his verbal sparring partner, Anna. Like the best Disney film in book form, like Moneyball for kids, Fantasy League is every football kid's dream scenario. Praise for FANTASY LEAGUE: * "This Moneyball story with kids is on the money."–Booklist, starred review "The feel good book of the year."–VOYA “Readers will be alternately cheering and reaching for a tissue during the final playoff-deciding game for the Bulldogs. This will be devoured by young football fans.”–School Library Journal

Where does serving fit in the world of competitive sports? Team sports and even individual sports require others to help. This is serving as it has been worked out through repetitive drills that no one but God and an athlete sees, through tough decisions in the heat of the final minutes of the game, through the crucible of the highly competitive sports world where being a servant makes you a good teammate, a competitive player and a model of Christ. Serving is a unique devotional that provides meaningful readings to help athletes and coaches understand how to have the attitude and heart of a servant, to think of others before themselves, even in the heat of competition. Learn from those who have found what true winners know. When they have served others, win or lose, they are modeling the very heart of Christ.

Buttermilk Bottom was a real place. It existed for many years in the shadows of Atlantas business district and was considered a festering eyesore. Many generations of black families lived there in almost total seclusion because of it geographic location, which was a sunken community riddled with poverty, crime, rodents, and economic depression that was legally imposed by the separate but unequal Jim Crow laws that devastated the lives of thousands of black families throughout the South. This is a fi ctionalized account of the people who lived in The Bottom and their lifestyle during the 50s and the early 60s. Buttermilk Bottom had a notorious reputation because of its delapadated wooden framed apartment houses, high crime rate, extreme poverty, and its isolation from the rest of the city. The reader will glimpse the living conditions, the mindset of the people, and the political atmosphere that devastated their lives on a daily bases. You will meet and be charmed by the handsome, dangerous ex-con Cameron Fielding, the local number writer. The smart and very attractive school principal, Grace, Camerons long-time sweetheart is helplessly trapped in her passion for Cameron despite the pressures of her peers and her professional life. You will be amused by the intelligent and funny storyteller, Cripple Jake. The forbidding Voodoo Priestess will makes you wonder, while her beautiful daughter, Jazmine, will captivate you. The popular and well-endowed Queenie, the madame and co-owner of the local juke joint is unforgetable, along with Lucille, who you will remember and laugh about for a lifetime. In Buttermilk Bottom soul food never tasted so good, the blues never sounded so low down, and the intimacy in love relationships of the characters will sizzle in your dreams long after you put this remarkable story down and re-read for years to come. Buttermilk Bottom is a pictorial in words and the storytelling is brilliant.
