|Author||: Marilyn Monroe|
|Editor||: Taylor Trade Publishing|
Written at the height of her fame but not published until over a decade after her death, this autobiography of actress and sex symbol Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962) poignantly recounts her childhood as an unwanted orphan, her early adolescence, her rise in the film industry from bit player to celebrity, and her marriage to Joe DiMaggio. In this intimate account of a very public life, she tells of her first (non-consensual) sexual experience, her romance with the Yankee Clipper, and her prescient vision of herself as "the kind of girl they found dead in the hall bedroom with an empty bottle of sleeping pills in her hand." The Marilyn in these pages is a revelation: a gifted, intelligent, vulnerable woman who was far more complex than the unwitting sex siren she portrayed on screen. Lavishly illustrated with photos of Marilyn, this special book celebrates the life and career of an American icon—-from the unique perspective of the icon herself.

WINNER OF THE 1989 CHRISTOPHER AWARD • Here is a thrilling, uplifting story of true-life heroism unequaled since the publication of Anne Frank's diary—a story that the young must hear and their elders must remember. Take Alicia's hand—and follow. “This memoir is heartbreaking. I hope it will be read by Jews and non-Jews alike.”—Elie Wiesel, author of Night Her name is Alicia. She was thirteen when she began saving the lives of people she did not know—while fleeing the Nazis through war-ravaged Poland. Her family cruelly wrenched from her, Alicia rescued other Jews from the Gestapo, led them to safe hideouts, and lent them her courage and hope. Even the sight of her mother's brutal murder could not quash this remarkable child's faith in human goodness—or her determination to prevail against overwhelming odds. After the war, Alicia continued to risk her life, leading Polish Jews on an underground route to freedom in Palestine. She swore on her brother's grave that if she survived, she would speak for her silenced family. This book is the eloquent fulfillment of that oath. Praise for Alicia “Profoundly observed . . . remarkably lived . . . ferocious bravery.”—The New York Times Book Review “As exciting as it is inspirational. In fact, a good bit of Alicia: My Story reads as if it were written by one of our better writers of fiction.”—The Pittsburgh Press “A compelling voice, lucid prose . . . a luminous testimony to the heroism and humanity of one remarkable person.”—San Francisco Chronicle “Straightforward . . . energizing and inspirational.”—Newsday

This book details short stories and poetry that I have written since the start of high school. A lot of the material came from the heart, to how I was feeling during the experience at the time. I have worked hard in the last twenty-two years on this and finally came to the conclusion that it is time to get this work published. A lot of sweat, tears, fears, and whatnot came into this work, and I hope you enjoy it as much I have. I hope that anyone going through hard times can relate and find my thoughts and my writing more than understanding. Please sit back and enjoy, and I hope to hear from you soon.

Journalist Khalid M. Amayreh points out the Major Contradictions in the Shiite Imami Religion in his book My Story with the Shiites. He says the real contentious issue between Muslims and Shiites is not Yazid or Mu’awiya, Hassan or Hussein, Fadak or al-“Zahraa’s limb,” the Karbulaa tragedy or the so-called Raziyatul Khamis (Thursday’s calamity), Hadithul Manzela or the Saqifa of Bani Sa’ada, or the Ghadeer Khom event. In fact, these issues can be reduced to mere “red herrings” used by the Shiites to discredit Islam and undermine the entire Muhammadan message. This timely and eye-opening book clears up misconceptions as it tells the truth about Shiites and Shiism.

Jamar found refuge in a gang after leaving an abusive home where his mother stole from him. Fred was arrested for assault with a weapon, public intoxication and attacking his mother while on drugs. Jeremy first went to court at age fourteen ("Court gives you the feeling that you can never make up for what you did, that you're just bad forever") but now wears a Native Rights hat to remind him of his strong Métis heritage. Kate, charged with petty theft and assault, finally found a counselor who treated her like a person for the first time. Many readers will recognize themselves, or someone they know, somewhere in these stories. Being lucky or unlucky after an incident of shoplifting, or the drug search at school, or hanging out with the wrong kids at the wrong time. The encounter with a mean cop, or a good one, that can change the trajectory of a kid's life. Couch-surfing, or being shunted from one foster home to another. The effect of youth crime on families (the book includes the points of view of family members as well as "voices of experience" -- adults looking back at their own experiences as young offenders). The kids in this book represent a range of socioeconomic backgrounds, genders, sexual orientations and ethnicities. Every story is different, but there are common threads -- loss of parenting, dislocation, poverty, truancy, addiction, discrimination. Most of all, this book leaves readers asking the most pressing questions of all. Does it make sense to put kids in jail? Can't we do better? Have we forgotten that we were once teens ourselves, feeling powerless to change our lives, confused about who we were and what we wanted, and quick to make a dumb move without a thought for the consequences?

A true story of me growing up during the great depression, searching for answers of our purpose in life. Who we are and the purpose that God had for our life? God gifted me with a great love for all mankind. I do not al-ways love what they do, but I love their soul, it belongs to God. I pray for everyone, that they may discover Gods love for them and they obtain a close relationship with God. There are much suffering and heartache in life and we need Gods love and support to help us through those times. He is not far away in the sky; He is walking with us everyday step by step. By obeying Gods rules, we show Him we love Him, and He rewards us by receiving us in Heaven eternally when our lives are over on earth. By offending Him, you will suffer eternally in Hell. YOUR CHOICE! Read 2 Timothy 4:6-8 For I am already being poured out like a libation, and the time of my departure is at hand, I have competed well; I have finished the race; I have kept the faith. From now on the crown of righteousness awaits me, which the Lord, the just judge, will award to me on that day and not only to me, but to all who have longed for his appearance. I hope you enjoyed reading this book of truth. This is my first book and I finished it just before my 93rd birthday. My husband and I was married 68 years, we had six children, two died after birth, have four wonderful children, seven grandchildren, eleven great grand children and two great- great grandsons. How Blessed I am. Wishing you the same. I Love You.

When Sarah was a little girl, she talked to me about the things she went through as a child and how she came through with the grace of God and family, how she grew up on the farm, and the hurt and pain of sexual abuses she experienced. Sarah lived and suffered through domestic violence as a young adult and through her married life. Sarah even had a death experience. Sarah even talked about the prayer that her sister prayed to God for a miracle to take place in their lives due to hunger. She talked about how hard it was raising three children and how the abuse affected her life. She told me how God released her from domestic-violence abuse. She talked about the infidelity, lies, and deception in her marriages. Sarah talked about the success she had in life and the success of her children. She often told how God called her into the ministry. Sarah shared about domestic violence, abuse, deliverance, healing, hope, finding your peace in the midst of a storm, loving yourself, reaching out and conquering fear, and loving one another. Sarah said to me what her favorite scripture is, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" (Phil. 4:13).
|Author||: Adebayo Akinfenwa|
*Longlisted for Best Autobiography at the British Sports Book Awards* Messi might be the most skillful, Ronaldo might have the best shot, but according to FIFA it's 16-stone Adebayo Akinfenwa who's the strongest footballer in the world. With a larger-than-life personality to match, it's no wonder 'The Beast' has become an icon, attracting millions of social media followers, launching his own clothing label, and still banging in the goals for Wycombe Wanderers. With such fame and adoration, it's easy to forget that Bayo is one of the hardest-working footballers around. His mental strength has had to be equal to his physical. Told by English clubs he was 'too big' to play football, he joined Lithuanian team FK Atlantas as a teenager where he faced widespread racial abuse. A career of grafting in the lower leagues of English and Welsh football followed, with spells at Barry Town, Torquay, Swansea, Gillingham, Northampton and AFC Wimbledon. Bayo's charisma and knack of scoring vital goals made him a fan favorite at each. His last ever kick for the Dons was a penalty at Wembley to help win the club promotion. 'I think I'm technically unemployed,' he told an interviewer after the final whistle. 'So any managers hit me up on the WhatsApp and get me a job!' Inspiring, entertaining and full of character, this is the story of how Akinfenwa became a true cult hero and the never-give-up attitude that made him the biggest footballer on the planet.
