Janice Dickinson was not only the first of the supermodels, it was she who (literally) invented the term. A raven-haired natural beauty, she endured a nightmarishly traumatic childhood at the hands of a sadistic, sexually and emotionally abusive father, and emerged in the early 1970s as the first lush-lipped, "exotic" brunette to break into a modeling world dominated by sunny California blondes. But this is more than Janice's tale of triumph. Janice also tells us what's real about beauty and what's not, and how women don't have to be slaves to the pictures they see on the glossy pages of Vogue. She discusses why we need to feel perfect, and how our pasts, our unattainable ideas of beauty, and male expectations all collude to make women feel like they should be working towards the next major makeover before next year's model steps up to the bed. Funny, gutsy, gossipy, yet ultimately searching and unforgettable, Janice Dickinson's story is an amazing story of hard won success unlike any you've heard before. 1. Language: English.

Recently named a "PageTurner" by Shelf Unbound magazine, NABE Pinnacle Thriller winner, an E-Lit Gold Medal winner (Horror) and two-time Silver Feather (IWPA) winner, The Color of Evil series details the adventures of the young man (Tad McGreevy) with the power to detect auras around others (Tetrachromatic Super Vision) and to relive the crimes of those with "the color of evil" in his dreams. Khaki = Killer, the third book in the Color of Evil Series, picks up where Red Is for Rage left off, answering the question, "What happened to Melody (Harris) Carpenter?" Fans of Red Is for Rage will remember that Melody was involved in a rescheduled UNI (University of Northern Iowa) football game, cheering for the Sky High Eagles. Rushed to the hospital with injuries suffered in a fall from atop the human pyramid (formed by fellow cheerleaders Heather, Kelly, Janice, Angie, and Jenny), Melody is hospitalized and fighting for her life as Khaki = Killer opens. The budding romance between Janice and Stevie continues to grow more serious, but Janice's parents oppose her relationship with the son of the man who shot and killed so many townsfolk at the Homecoming game. There are more revelations about Earl Scranton's motives, and other romance s develop (Tad and Jenny; Charlie and Andrea). When Heather Crompton and Kelly Carter mysteriously disappear, the tension in town ratchets to a fever pitch. The entire town is involved in the search. Retired police officer Charlie Chandler reorganizes the rag-tag team that helped find Stevie Scranton and bring him back to Cedar Falls, Iowa. In the background lurks Michael Clay (AKA Pogo), still searching for Tad McGreevy, still hoping to permanently silence "the boy who can see the future". Tensions run high and the stakes run even higher in Khaki = Killer. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Connie Corcoran Wilson.

Winner of the 2014 Silver Falchion Award: Sponsored by Barnes & Noble and Mystery Writers of America. "An entertaining examination of oceanographic food webs, good for both everyday read-alouds and classroom instructional use... An informational picture book that solves a whodunit of the sea in lilting, rhyming text." (Kirkus Review)Was it a shark, or did some other sea creature make a perfectly drilled hole in a clamshell? Come along and solve the mystery. Did You Make the Hole in the Shell in the Sea? has rhythmic and rhyming text. Each expressive character helps to bring the story to life, and although the story is fictitious, all of the characters tell an authentic tale of what really happens at the edge of the sea. The repetitive text and rich vocabulary make this a fun book for learners ages three to 10 and for families. This book is also an entertaining choice for any classroom teacher who's studying the sea and searching for a fun book packed with true facts about coastal marine life, including sea stars, lobsters, clams, moon snails, and seagulls. Don't miss this seaside adventure. The journey is about to begin. And the next time you find a shell at the beach with a perfectly drilled hole, you'll know exactly what made the hole in the shell in the sea! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Janice S. C. Petrie.

From a master of suspense comes a chilling new novel that explores the dangers lurking closer than you think. Because even in the perfect family, you never know what is going on behind closed doors. This is what happened... It was a case guaranteed to spark a media feeding frenzy: a young mother, blond and pretty, disappears without a trace from her South Boston home, leaving behind her four-year-old daughter as the only witness and her handsome, secretive husband as the prime suspect. In the last six hours... But from the moment Detective Sergeant D. D. Warren arrives at the Joneses - a snug little bungalow, she senses something off about the picture of wholesome normality the couple worked so hard to create. On the surface, Jason and Sandra Jones are like any other hardworking young couple raising a four-year-old child. But it is just under the surface that things grew murky. Of the world as I knew it... With the clock ticking on the life of a missing woman and the media firestorm building, Jason Jones seems more intent on destroying evidence and isolating his daughter than on searching for his beloved wife. Is the perfect husband trying to hide his guilt, or just trying to hide? And will the only witness to the crime be the killer's next victim? 1. Language: English.

A revealing and intimate biography about Janis Joplin, the queen of classic rock, written by her younger sister. Janis Joplin blazed across the '60s music scene, electrifying audiences with her staggering voice and the way she seems to pour her very soul into her music. By the time her life and artistry were cut tragically short by a heroin overdose, Joplin had become the stuff of rock-and-roll legend. Through the eyes of her family and closest friends, we see Janis as a young girl, already rebelling against injustice, racism, and hypocrisy in society. We follow Janis as she discovers her amazing talents in the Beat hangouts of Venice and North Beach - singing in coffeehouses, shooting speed to enhance her creativity, challenging the norms of straight society. Janis truly came into her own in the fantastic, psychedelic, acid-soaked world of Haight-Asbury. At the height of her fame, Janis's life is a whirlwind of public adoration and hard living. Laura Joplin shows us not only the public Janice who could drink Jim Morrison under the table and bean him with a bottle of booze when he got fresh; she shows us the private Janis, struggling to perfect her art, searching for the balance between love and stardom, battling to overcome her alcohol addiction and heroin use in a world where substance abuse was nearly universal. At the heart of Love, Janis is an astonishing series of letters by Janis herself that have never been previously published. In them she conveys as no one else could the wild ride from awkward small-town teenager to rock-and-roll queen. Love, Janis is the new life of Janis Joplin we have been waiting for - a celebration of the 60s' joyous experimentation and creativity, and a loving, compassionate examination of one of that era's greatest talents. 1.
