<b>#1聽<i>New York Times</i>聽Bestseller<br />More than 4 million copies sold<br />A Reese Witherspoon x Hello Sunshine Book Club Pick<br /><br />"I can't even express how much I love this book! I didn't want this story to end!"--Reese Witherspoon<br /><br />"Painfully beautiful."--<i>The New York Times Book Review<br /></i></b><br />For years, rumors of the "Marsh Girl" have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life--until the unthinkable happens.<br /><br /><i>Where the Crawdads Sing</i>聽is at once an exquisite ode to the natural world, a heartbreaking coming-of-age story, and a surprising tale of possible murder. Owens reminds us that we are forever shaped by the children we once were, and that we are all subject to the beautiful and violent secrets that nature keeps.

So she is shocked when her babysitter, Emira Tucker, is confronted while watching the Chamberlains' toddler one night, walking the aisles of their local high-end supermarket. The store's security guard, seeing a young black woman out late with a white child, accuses Emira of kidnapping two-year-old Briar. A small crowd gathers, a bystander films everything, and Emira is furious and humiliated. Alix resolves to make things right.<br /><br />But Emira herself is aimless, broke, and wary of Alix's desire to help. At twenty-five, she is about to lose her health insurance and has no idea what to do with her life. When the video of Emira unearths someone from Alix's past, both women find themselves on a crash course that will upend everything they think they know about themselves, and each other. <br /><br />With empathy and piercing social commentary, <i>Such a Fun Age</i> explores the stickiness of transactional relationships, what it means to make someone "family," and the complicated reality of being a grown up.

<b>A Paranormal Women's Fiction with tons of humor. For many, midlife is the beginning.</b><br /><br />It was a day like any other day for Marina Trahan鈥ntil she caught her husband in bed with another woman. Before that eye-opening wake-up call, Marina would have described her life as average or uneventful, maybe even boring. But now, chaos and confusion reign supreme. She鈥檇 expected to slide through midlife with her unwanted extra pounds, chin hair, and hot flashes and move somewhat gracefully into elastic waist pants and having no verbal filter. But with a wayward husband, a high-maintenance daughter, a lackluster career, and a crazy mother all weighing her down, Marina is ready to wave the white flag of surrender. <br /><br />Then an intriguing stranger named Alexios shows up out of nowhere and insists she is descended from a goddess and is the only person who can save the world from certain destruction. She has roughly a week to do it. Solving a centuries-old mystery seems like a more interesting proposition than the other situations Marina is facing, so she accepts his challenge. But her search for a magical item of power reveals far more about Marina than she ever knew. Maybe enough to save the world. And even herself.<br /><br /><b>Author Reviews:</b><br /><br /><I>鈥淲rong side of 40? More like the right side of funny and a fantastic read from Jana DeLeon!鈥?鈥?Mandy M.
