Until now, the true story of John Lennon's childhood has never been told. John's sister Julia has herself been on a personal journey that has made it possible only now to reveal the full extent of the pain and difficulties - as well as the happier times - living inside John Lennon's family brought. Julia reveals the various strong, self-willed and selfish women who surrounded John as he grew up. John was removed from his mother at the age of 5 to live with his Aunt Mimi, and here Julia shows for the first time the cruelty of this decision - to both mother and son, she sheds a new light on his upbringing with Mimi which is often at dramatic odds with the accepted tale. John's frequent visits to his mother and sisters gave him the liveliness, freedom and love he sought and allowed him to develop his musical talents. The tragic death of their mother, knocked down outside Aunt Mimi's house by a speeding car when John was 17, meant that life for him and his sisters would never be the same again. Poignant, raw and beautifully written, IMAGINE THIS casts John Lennon's life in a new light and reveals the source of his emotional fragility and musical genius. It is also one family's extraordinary story of how it dealt with fame and tragedy beyond all imagining.

Imagine This is the sequel to Vickie Stringer's bestselling Let That Be the Reason, her stunning debut novel based on life as she knew it in the shocking underworld of the sex and drug trade. Vickie Stringer has gained a legion of fans for her portrayal of Pamela, a.k.a. Carmen, a woman who had it all but lost out when the love of her life left her penniless and alone to raise their son. Pamela refuses to remain powerless, though. She pulls herself up, becomes a major hustler in the street game, gains independence, and makes big money -- but the consequences are more dreadful than she ever imagined. Imagine This continues the saga of Pamela as she does jail time and has to decide who she really is: Pamela, a woman who, more than anything, loves her son and wants to be there to raise him; or Carmen, the ruthless baller, who does the crime, serves the time, and honors, at any expense, the code of the street.

Imagine a day when your swing swings you higher than the highest treetops. Imagine a day when you can ride your bike up a path of falling leaves into the very tree they are falling from. Imagine a day when you release a handful of blue balloons into a cloudy, gray sky to create a postcard-perfect day. Imagine a day when the ordinary becomes the extraordinary...a day when anything is possible. Imagine a Day is the companion book to the critically acclaimed Imagine a Night, which School Library Journal declared "a fascinating foray into the imagination." Renowned Canadian artist Rob Gonsalves once again stretches the limits of visual exploration with his breathtaking paintings and encourages parents and children alike to look beyond the limits of the everyday world and imagine.

ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: Forbes • Lit Hub • Electric Lit A gorgeous graphic memoir about loss, love, and confronting grief When Kristen Radtke was in college, the sudden death of a beloved uncle and the sight of an abandoned mining town after his funeral marked the beginning moments of a lifelong fascination with ruins and with people and places left behind. Over time, this fascination deepened until it triggered a journey around the world in search of ruined places. Now, in this genre-smashing graphic memoir, she leads us through deserted cities in the American Midwest, an Icelandic town buried in volcanic ash, islands in the Philippines, New York City, and the delicate passageways of the human heart. Along the way, we learn about her family and a rare genetic heart disease that has been passed down through generations, and revisit tragic events in America’s past. A narrative that is at once narrative and factual, historical and personal, Radtke’s stunning illustrations and piercing text never shy away from the big questions: Why are we here, and what will we leave behind? (With black-and-white illustrations throughout; part of the Pantheon Graphic Novel series)

For decades, or maybe centuries, the Church has ignored some of the most crucial truths found in God's word. The author has been shown these truths over a long period of time, resulting in an incredible transformation of his life. For any person who is serious about his/her walk with Christ, these truths are absolutely essential in order to grow in grace and the knowledge of the truth. The author's lament is, 'If only I had been taught these truths decades ago, I may well have enjoyed life to the fullest, and experienced the joy of His salvation many years ago.' Sadly he is close to his life's expected time span and will not have the time to enjoy such a life for very long. But his desire is that many people who believe they are Christians will read this book with hungry, open hearts, ready to hear from God, accept the truth, be set free, and experience the joy of His salvation far earlier in life than the author. The United States of America is spiritually sick, in desperate need of healing. The author offers some very wise advice to the Church in America which would change the direction of this nation if accepted and applied to the lives of those who profess to know Christ. The teaching found in this book is not the author's opinion, but rather the exposition of scripture in a clear and concise manner. He believes that his doctrinal stance, ideology or opinions are worth nothing, so he simply and clearly brings to light the teaching of God's word, much of which has been ignored for far too long.

Have you truly taken ownership of a Christ-like life--one that is based on wisdom, understanding, knowledge, and embracing the work we are naturally created and trained to do? Although God has given us various characteristics and traits to draw from when we encounter life’s trials and tests, he still holds us accountable in this process to change our mind no matter what pressures life brings. Imagine This ... opens up our imagination to the knowledge that while are we born with everything already inside of us to survive successfully throughout today, tomorrow, and into the future, our heavenly Father’s presence is with us at all times to guide us, help us, and keep us from evil. As we begin to develop our spirit man--as God did with the tribe of Israel to illustrate how humanity is included in God’s overall plan--we can come closer to identifying the signs of our spiritual growth and maturity. We can then ultimately be encouraged to continue in spite of difficulties by supporting our own development and growth in this process of faith. Believers are established in wholeness and completion. Once we have identified and isolated our personal insecurities and exchanged those beliefs with boldness, courage, and confidence, we will finally receive the blessings and wealth of a renewed mind--the direct result of what happens when the Holy Spirit inspires us to grow to achieve more.

The World of Mark Leonard Big-hearted, eight-year-old Mark Leonard lives on the brink of two worlds: one steeped in the hardship of post–World War II America, where his father is consumed by financial woes; the other where he’s buoyed by his exceptionally vivid imagination. In his imagination, Mark is a heroic soldier, a surgeon, and a daredevil striving to live up to the ideals of the 1950s. When his family uproots from Queens, New York, to start afresh in Massachusetts, Mark finds refuge from loneliness in an unlikely friendship with an eccentric, wealthy, elderly neighbor who has shut out the world following a debilitating accident. Their mutual gift for conjuring up imaginary worlds to cope with reality—which for Mark includes the confusing teachings of his Jewish faith—leads them to push the boundaries between these two realms, exploring the fine line between love, imagination, and the existence of God.

From a Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award finalist, a ferociously intimate story of a family facing the ultimate question: how far will we go to save the people we love the most? When Margaret's fiancée, John, is hospitalized for depression in 1960s London, she faces a choice: carry on with their plans despite what she now knows of his condition, or back away from the suffering it may bring her. She decides to marry him. Imagine Me Gone is the unforgettable story of what unfolds from this act of love and faith. At the heart of it is their eldest son, Michael, a brilliant, anxious music fanatic who makes sense of the world through parody. Over the span of decades, his younger siblings -- the savvy and responsible Celia and the ambitious and tightly controlled Alec -- struggle along with their mother to care for Michael's increasingly troubled and precarious existence. Told in alternating points of view by all five members of the family, this searing, gut-wrenching, and yet frequently hilarious novel brings alive with remarkable depth and poignancy the love of a mother for her children, the often inescapable devotion siblings feel toward one another, and the legacy of a father's pain in the life of a family. With his striking emotional precision and lively, inventive language, Adam Haslett has given us something rare: a novel with the power to change how we see the most important people in our lives. "Haslett is one of the country's most talented writers, equipped with a sixth sense for characterization"-Wall Street Journal "Ambitious and stirring . . . With Imagine Me Gone , Haslett has reached another level."-New York Times Book Review

A lively new picture-book biography of the most beloved children’s book author of all time: Dr. Seuss! Have you ever wondered how the great Dr. Seuss wrote his most famous book?

Ted Geisel) proves that sometimes limitations can be the best inspiration of all.

Why are we artists? How does God experience art? What is the artist’s calling in relation to God, the church, and the world? Drawing from his experiences performing Mozart, playing “dive bars", and leading worship and the arts in the church, author Manuel Luz seeks to answer the questions that artists often ask. Laced with humorous and sometimes poignant anecdotes, Imagine That is a thought-provoking journey through the convergence of art and faith. Luz has been a working musician, writer, pastor, and even amateur cartoonist for more than 40 years, and in Imagine That he lays out his case for a uniquely Christian approach to the vocation of artist, using theologically rich and artist-friendly language. In the end, Imagine That affirms and equips Christian artists for the special kind of ministry that only they can do.
