It's late summer 1793, and the streets of Philadelphia are abuzz with mosquitoes and rumors of fever. Down near the docks, many have taken ill, and the fatalities are mounting. Now they include Polly, the serving girl at the Cook Coffeehouse. But fourteen-year-old Mattie Cook doesn't get a moment to mourn the passing of her childhood playmate. New customers have overrun her family's coffee shop, located far from the mosquito-infested river, and Mattie's concerns of fever are all but overshadowed by dreams of growing her family's small business into a thriving enterprise. But when the fever begins to strike closer to home, Mattie's struggle to build a new life must give way to a new fight-the fight to stay alive.

<h2>Move Beyond Occasional Happiness to Constant Contentment and a Blissful State of Being<br /></h2><p>Why is it that happiness always comes and goes鈥攊f it comes at all? <strong>How can you sustain a deep state of peace and contentment in an ever more frightening world?</strong> What does it take to uncover and fulfil your life鈥檚 unique purpose?<br /></p><p>You will have noticed that our world's ecological, political, financial, educational, and religious systems are all in a state of turmoil鈥攁ll appear to be in degradation, or at least entering a period of radical reformation. <strong>If you don't think this has much to do with you and your lifestyle, </strong>then the probability is that you are yet to become fully conscious of the significance of this tumultuous time for humanity<strong>鈥攐r the impact it will have upon you.</strong><br /></p><p>Here are some psychological symptoms that reflect whether your subconscious mind is noticing what is known as our collective 鈥渟hift in consciousness鈥?<br /></p><ul><li>Feeling overwhelmed and generally anxious a lot of the time<br /></li><li>A feeling of loneliness or disconnectedness from others鈥攄espite having plenty of friends and family<br /></li><li>Finding your intimate relationships are becoming fractious<br /></li><li>Becoming far more judgmental of yourself and others<br /></li><li>Sensing a distinct lack of direction to your life<br /></li><li>No sense of fulfillment from how you lead your life.</li></ul><p>This book will help you to come to terms with our collective shift in consciousness and lay the foundations for you to ride the "Shift."<br /></p><p><strong>You will learn of the absolute undistorted spiritual principles</strong> that steer the creation of your life鈥檚 reality. These 鈥渘atural鈥?principles are not a set of laws or commandments from on high; they are a purified set of mental behavioral guidelines鈥攗nadulterated by institutional dogma. They are the human psyche鈥檚 translation of the universal force behind all creation鈥?lt;strong>the vitality of Divine Love</strong>.<br /></p><p>The Shift is a psychological mass event that will affect everyone. It is happening right now and its influence is accelerating. We are becoming aware that we truly 鈥渃reate our own reality,鈥?both personally and collectively, and are changing the psychological aspects of our perceptions (our core belief systems) in accordance with this realization.<br /></p><p><strong>The Shift will affect us all directly or indirectly in the coming years</strong> as the psychological ramifications percolate through to our personal realities. Nonetheless, being consciously aware of what鈥檚 happening and why and practicing the ten natural principles, will ease any personal fears that you associate with this collective experience.<br /></p><p>A review from the first edition:<br /></p><h4><em>A Wonderful Guide for Those Who are Feeling a Little Lost These Days!<br /></em></h4><p><em>"We live in a time when many people (and especially the younger folks) are finding the moral and ethical anchors being cut away. It's fine to scrutinize what drives our behavior, but currently it seems we have little to guide us other than rampant media messages of simply taking care of yourself and ignoring others. This book is a great guide of 10 principles that can help provide a way out of the collective morass and initiate thought-provoking concepts on defining who we want to be. I recommend this for many who are searching for their personal guidance in a spiritual setting and to be effective in day-to-day relationships."</em>- David Barnett, BA, BS, MS.<br /></p><p>Practice is the key to instilling the virtues of these natural principles within your conscious mind. Assimilating the principles will allow you to ride the Shift with a deep-seated trust and confidence in yourself.<br /></p><p><strong>Click on the "Look Inside" feature</strong> to find out more about the book鈥檚 content.<br /></p>

<b>The story that inspired the major motion picture <i>Beautiful Boy</i> featuring Steve Carell and Timoth茅e Chalamet<i>.</i></b><br /> <br /><b>This <i>New York Times </i>bestselling memoir of a young man鈥檚 addiction to methamphetamine tells a raw, harrowing, and ultimately hopeful tale of the road from relapse to recovery.</b><br /><br />Nic Sheff was drunk for the first time at age eleven. In the years that followed, he would regularly smoke pot, do cocaine and Ecstasy, and develop addictions to crystal meth and heroin. Even so, he felt like he would always be able to quit and put his life together whenever he needed to. It took a violent relapse one summer in California to convince him otherwise. In a voice that is raw and honest, Nic spares no detail in telling us the compelling, heartbreaking, and true story of his relapse and the road to recovery. As we watch Nic plunge into the mental and physical depths of drug addiction, he paints a picture for us of a person at odds with his past, with his family, with his substances, and with himself. It's a harrowing portrait鈥攂ut not one without hope.

<p><b>A National Book Award Finalist!</b></p><p>In kindergarten, Jarrett Krosoczka's teacher asks him to draw his family, with a mommy and a daddy. But Jarrett's family is much more complicated than that. His mom is an addict, in and out of rehab, and in and out of Jarrett's life. His father is a mystery -- Jarrett doesn't know where to find him, or even what his name is. Jarrett lives with his grandparents -- two very loud, very loving, very opinionated people who had thought they were through with raising children until Jarrett came along.</p><p>Jarrett goes through his childhood trying to make his non-normal life as normal as possible, finding a way to express himself through drawing even as so little is being said to him about what's going on. Only as a teenager can Jarrett begin to piece together the truth of his family, reckoning with his mother and tracking down his father. </p><p><i>Hey, Kiddo</i> is a profoundly important memoir about growing up in a family grappling with addiction, and finding the art that helps you survive.</p>
