Book Excerpt :

Laurence Gonzales’s electrifying adventure opens in the jungles of the Congo. Jenny Lowe, a primatologist studying chimpanzees—the bonobos—is running for her life. A civil war has exploded and Jenny is trapped in its crosshairs . . . She runs to the camp of a fellow primatologist. The rebels have already been there. Everyone is dead except a young girl, the daughter of Jenny’s brutally murdered fellow scientist—and competitor. Jenny and the child flee, Jenny grabbing the notebooks of the primatologist who’s been killed. She brings the girl to Chicago to await the discovery of her relatives. The girl is fifteen and lovely—her name is Lucy. Realizing that the child has no living relatives, Jenny begins to care for her as her own. When she reads the notebooks written by Lucy’s father, she discovers that the adorable, lovely, magical Lucy is the result of an experiment. She is part human, part ape—a hybrid human being . . . Laurence Gonzales’s novel grabs you from its opening pages and you stay with it, mesmerized by the shy but fierce, wonderfully winning Lucy.

Book Short Summary:

A riveting first-person tale of addiction, in the tradition of Go Ask Alice and Jay’s Journal. The author of this diary began journaling on her sixteenth birthday. She lived in an upper middle class neighborhood in Santa Monica with her mom, dad, and Berkeley-bound older brother. She was a good girl, living a good life...but one party changed everything. One party, where she took one taste—and liked it. Really liked it. Social drinking and drugging lead to more, faster, harder... She convinced herself that she was no different from anyone else who liked to party. But the evidence indicates otherwise: Soon she was she hanging out with an edgy crowd, blowing off school and everything she used to care about, all to find her next high. But what goes up must come down, and everything—from her first swig, to her last breath—is chronicled in the diary she left behind.

Book Short Summary:

Riffling through the wardrobes of years gone by, costume historian Lucy Adlington reveals the rich stories underlying the clothes we wear in this stylish tour of the most important developments in the history of fashion, from ancient times to the present day. Starting with underwear – did you know Elizabeth I owned just one pair of drawers, worn only after her death? – she moves garment by garment through Western attire, exploring both the items we still wear every day and those that have gone the way of the dodo (sugared petticoats, farthingales and spatterdashers to name but a few). Beautifully illustrated throughout, and crammed with fascinating and eminently quotable facts, Stitches in Time shows how the way we dress is inextricably bound up with considerations of aesthetics, sex, gender, class and lifestyle – and offers us the chance to truly appreciate the extraordinary qualities of these, our most ordinary possessions.

Book Short Summary:

One woman is about to discover everything she believes—knows—to be true about her life…isn’t. After hitting her head, Lucy Sparks awakens in the hospital to a shocking revelation: the man she’s known and loved for years—the man she recently married—is not actually her husband. In fact, they haven’t even spoken since their breakup four years earlier. The happily-ever-after she remembers in vivid detail—right down to the dress she wore to their wedding—is only one example of what her doctors call a false memory: recollections Lucy’s mind made up to fill in the blanks from the coma. Her psychologist explains the condition as honest lying, because while Lucy’s memories are false, they still feel incredibly real. Now she has no idea which memories she can trust—a devastating experience not only for Lucy, but also for her family, friends and especially her devoted boyfriend, Matt, whom Lucy remembers merely as a work colleague. When the life Lucy believes she had slams against the reality she’s been living for the past four years, she must make a difficult choice about which life she wants to lead, and who she really is.

Book Short Summary:

“Lucy is a 3.2-million-year-old skeleton who has become the spokeswoman for human evolution. She is perhaps the best known and most studied fossil hominid of the twentieth century, the benchmark by which other discoveries of human ancestors are judged.”–From Lucy’s Legacy In his New York Times bestseller, Lucy: The Beginnings of Humankind, renowned paleoanthropologist Donald Johanson told the incredible story of his discovery of a partial female skeleton that revolutionized the study of human origins. Lucy literally changed our understanding of our world and who we come from. Since that dramatic find in 1974, there has been heated debate and–most important–more groundbreaking discoveries that have further transformed our understanding of when and how humans evolved. In Lucy’s Legacy, Johanson takes readers on a fascinating tour of the last three decades of study–the most exciting period of paleoanthropologic investigation thus far. In that time, Johanson and his colleagues have uncovered a total of 363 specimens of Australopithecus afarensis (Lucy’s species, a transitional creature between apes and humans), spanning 400,000 years. As a result, we now have a unique fossil record of one branch of our family tree–that family being humanity–a tree that is believed to date back a staggering 7 million years. Focusing on dramatic new fossil finds and breakthrough advances in DNA research, Johanson provides the latest answers that post-Lucy paleoanthropologists are finding to questions such as: How did Homo sapiens evolve? When and where did our species originate? What separates hominids from the apes? What was the nature of Neandertal and modern human encounters? What mysteries about human evolution remain to be solved? Donald Johanson is a passionate guide on an extraordinary journey from the ancient landscape of Hadar, Ethiopia–where Lucy was unearthed and where many other exciting fossil discoveries have since been made–to a seaside cave in South Africa that once sheltered early members of our own species, and many other significant sites. Thirty-five years after Lucy, Johanson continues to enthusiastically probe the origins of our species and what it means to be human.

Book Short Summary:

A New York Times bestseller from an author with “a natural gift for storytelling”: A mother and son are reunited years after a shattering betrayal (The New York Times). She passes through the Paris restaurant, alone, unbent, and unbroken. Lucy Crown has lived with heartbreak for long enough that it no longer shows on her face, and she’s not afraid to dine in solitude. But then she sees him across the bar, full of liquor and life, looking far happier than he did the last time she saw him two decades before: Tony, her son—the one man she loved more than any other, the one she nearly destroyed. Twenty years earlier, in 1937, Lucy was an unhappily married suburban housewife, and Tony was so frail his parents were forced to hire a companion for him. When the companion caught Lucy’s eye, he awoke in her a feeling of passion she thought had died long ago—leading to an act of indiscretion during a vacation in Vermont that would upend their family, and take half a lifetime to repair. From the author of such classics as Rich Man, Poor Man and The Young Lions—an O. Henry Award winner who “always writes immensely readable books”—Lucy Crown is an unflinching look at the emotional reality of infidelity, heartbreak, and divorce that remains a testament to the power of forgiveness (The New York Times). This ebook features an illustrated biography of Irwin Shaw including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.

I go down the stairs quiet like I am something without any weight. I open the door in the dark and the cold sucks my skin towards it. It is the morning but there is no sun yet, just white light around the edges. It is the time to get the eggs. Time for my best thing. The eggs they shine with their white and I do not need the light to find them. The foxes need no light either. I am a little like the fox, he is a little like me. Lucy is a young woman with an uncommon voice and an unusual way of looking at the world. She doesn’t understand why her mother has sent her to live with old Mister and Missus on their farm, but she knows she must never leave or her mother won’t be able to find her again. Also living at the farm is a pregnant teenager named Samantha who tells conflicting stories about her past and quickly becomes Lucy’s only friend. When Samantha gives birth and her baby disappears, Lucy arms herself with Samantha’s diary—as well as a pet chicken named Jennifer—and embarks on a dangerous and exhilarating journey to reunite mother and child. With Dear Lucy, Julie Sarkissian has created an unforgettable new heroine of contemporary fiction whose original voice, exuberance, and bravery linger long after the final page.

Book Short Summary:

Lucy Richeson has her life all planned—sort of. Her summer job as a lifeguard will take her through until the fall, when she wants to attend the Art Institute. But unfortunately for Lucy, she’s currently living under Aunt Stephanie’s roof, and her straight laced aunt has other ideas. To avoid being forced into pharmacy school, Lucy accepts her best friend Chloe’s invitation to spend the summer working on her uncle’s huge ranch in central Florida. Feeding horses doesn’t sound too hard, and the pay is a lot better than at the city pool. Nicholas Wilde is sick and tired of the women in his family playing matchmaker. Every summer it’s some new girl, and none of them have half the appeal as that cutie who thought she was rescuing him from drowning when he dove for the ring he’d dropped to the bottom of the pool that day. Plus, Cynthia Thompson is around the ranch a lot these days. He doesn’t need any more complications. Imagine their mutual shock to discover that not only is the lifeguard now one of his ranch hands, none of the guest quarters were available and she’s sleeping in the bedroom right next to his. It isn’t long before Lucy suspects Chloe and her grandmother are behind the setup, and she wants the heck out of there. But there’s no quick escape from the remote ranch, and she’s quickly falling in love with the beautiful scenery and the people—some of them. Still, the hunky Nicholas surely won’t give Lucy a second glance, as long as elegant Cynthia is at the ranch. Plus, Lucy doesn’t want to give up her dream of art school. Will there be any chance that things will work out and the spark between them can ever become a flame? Praise for CJ Love: “You have to read this book!!

Book Short Summary:

"We're having sex until we're out of each other's system." Lucy is what the "Agency" made her: deadly, ruthless and calculating. It's stripped away much of the girl she used to be, but fear and lust remain. Troy inspires both. He always has—even when he hijacked Lucy's life and gave it to a shadowy government agency operating outside the law. In a world where every day is an op and every op could be your last, there's no room for emotion. Whatever gets you through—the training, the thrills, the sex—you take and are grateful. Even as fellow agents are culled by unknown assassins, Lucy and Troy remain locked in a breathless clinch of deception, distrust and desire. At any moment, one could be tasked to kill the other, and at the Agency, protocol rules. And cancellation is forever.
