SUMMARY:

OPRAH’S BOOK CLUB PICK • A HARPERS BAZAAR BEST BOOK OF 2022 • A PARADE MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK • A MARIE CLAIRE MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK “Reading Finding Me. . . you understand where her ability comes from: Only someone who has already been dragged into the depths of emotion readily knows how to get back there.” —New York Times Magazine “[A] fulfilling narrative of struggle and success….Her gorgeous storytelling will inspire anyone wishing to shed old labels.” —Los Angeles Times “This book is a testament to resilience, hard work, and the power of owning your truth." —Real Simple In my book, you will meet a little girl named Viola who ran from her past until she made a life-changing decision to stop running forever. This is my story, from a crumbling apartment in Central Falls, Rhode Island, to the stage in New York City, and beyond. This is the path I took to finding my purpose but also my voice in a world that didn’t always see me. As I wrote Finding Me, my eyes were open to the truth of how our stories are often not given close examination. We are forced to reinvent them to fit into a crazy, competitive, judgmental world. So I wrote this for anyone running through life untethered, desperate and clawing their way through murky memories, trying to get to some form of self-love. For anyone who needs reminding that a life worth living can only be born from radical honesty and the courage to shed facades and be . . . you. Finding Me is a deep reflection, a promise, and a love letter of sorts to self. My hope is that my story will inspire you to light up your own life with creative expression and rediscover who you were before the world put a label on you.

SUMMARY:

The #1 New York Times Bestseller and inspirational memoir by Michelle Knight, whose survival story gripped the world and continues to inspire and offer hope. Michelle was a young single mother when she was kidnapped by a local school bus driver named Ariel Castro. For more than a decade afterward, she endured unimaginable torture at the hand of her abductor. In 2003 Amanda Berry joined her in captivity, followed by Gina DeJesus in 2004. Their escape on May 6, 2013, made headlines around the world. Barely out of her own tumultuous childhood, Michelle was estranged from her family and fighting for custody of her young son when she disappeared. Local police believed she had run away, so they removed her from the missing persons lists fifteen months after she vanished. Castro tormented her with these facts, reminding her that no one was looking for her, that the outside world had forgotten her. But Michelle would not be broken. In Finding Me, Michelle will reveal the heartbreaking details of her story, including the thoughts and prayers that helped her find courage to endure her unimaginable circumstances and now build a life worth living. By sharing both her past and her efforts to create a future, Michelle becomes a voice for the voiceless and a powerful symbol of hope for the thousands of children and young adults who go missing every year.

She decides to take a break and study abroad, following Will’s travel journal to Ireland. Her brother felt closest to God there, and she hopes to find peace about his death. Meanwhile, Beckett Rush—teen heartthrob and Hollywood bad boy—is flying to Ireland to finish filming his latest vampire movie. On the flight, he bumps into Finley—the one girl who seems immune to his charm. Undeterred, Beckett convinces Finley to strike an unconventional bargain. As Finley deals with the loss of her brother, the pressures of school, and her impending audition, she wonders if an unlikely romance is blossoming between her and Beckett. Then she experiences something that radically changes her perspective on life. Has everything she’s been looking for been with her all along?

SUMMARY:

A New York Times Bestseller In this spellbinding exploration of the varieties of love, the author of the worldwide bestseller Call Me by Your Name revisits its complex and beguiling characters decades after their first meeting. No novel in recent memory has spoken more movingly to contemporary readers about the nature of love than André Aciman’s haunting Call Me by Your Name. First published in 2007, it was hailed as “a love letter, an invocation . . . an exceptionally beautiful book” (Stacey D’Erasmo, The New York Times Book Review). Nearly three quarters of a million copies have been sold, and the book became a much-loved, Academy Award–winning film starring Timothée Chalamet as the young Elio and Armie Hammer as Oliver, the graduate student with whom he falls in love. In Find Me, Aciman shows us Elio’s father, Samuel, on a trip from Florence to Rome to visit Elio, who has become a gifted classical pianist. A chance encounter on the train with a beautiful young woman upends Sami’s plans and changes his life forever. Elio soon moves to Paris, where he, too, has a consequential affair, while Oliver, now a New England college professor with a family, suddenly finds himself contemplating a return trip across the Atlantic. Aciman is a master of sensibility, of the intimate details and the emotional nuances that are the substance of passion. Find Me brings us back inside the magic circle of one of our greatest contemporary romances to ask if, in fact, true love ever dies.

With nothing but forty bucks and some clothes, Andy leaves Texas and joins the Marines. Bryan Moore grew up in the projects of Chicago, the oldest son of a mixed-race father and white mother. When tragedy strikes his family, Bryan does his best to help his hard-working mom raise his three siblings. After high school, Bryan joins the Marines so he can send money home to continue helping his family. After proudly serving their country for eight years then spending six months unable to find employment, a chance meeting at the VA brings Bryan and Andy together when a stranger offers them a job on a cattle farm. Both Andy and Bryan eagerly jump at the opportunity. A bond of friendship is immediately formed, and though Andy is gay and Bryan considers himself straight, it holds no judgment. Spending all of their time living and working together tests their relationship on many levels. Andy knows what he wants even though he's not Bryan's type. Bryan is confused by his changing feelings for Andy though he can't deny the attraction. Neither one is willing to wreck the best friendship they've ever had.

SUMMARY:

WE ARE EACH PRESENTED WITH OPPORTUNITIES IN LIFE, how we respond to them can make a world of difference in both our material circumstances and our overall well-being. Finding “Me” proves just that. This autobiography traces the life of Inocencia Tupas Malunes from her birthplace in the rural Philippines to landed immigrant in Vancouver, Canada. While this is not a particularly unusual journey these days, Ms. Malunes’ story explores and demonstrates her willingness to seize opportunity wherever it might appear and to extract value where many would fail to see it. Ms. Malunes saw opportunity in a canning factory, in sewing curtains and cushion covers, in working as a domestic and as a nanny, in apprenticeships, and in hotel housekeeping. Along the way, prosperity grew, and Ms. Malunes flourished. In the process, a glorious variety of people passed through her life. Inocencia found friends and companions in each development. Despite some daunting challenges, she seems always to have fun—even when the fun is something as ordinary as cooking a meal or caring for a loved one. Undergirding all of her abilities and attitudes are her fundamental beliefs in hard work, treating people fairly, and a universal oneness that can help each of us find our way. Finding “Me” is the captivating tale of an anything-but-ordinary woman.
