GRAB THE KIDS & GO: A Practical Guide to Your Family's Gap Year is written specially for parents who long to discover the world with their kids, but are overwhelmed by seemingly insurmountable logistical, financial and emotional obstacles. It offers recommendations, advice and answers to questions, from how to design the ideal itinerary to match your budget, to how to manage fussy kids on the road, to how to have your home and pets cared for in your absence. Peppered throughout this book are anecdotes from the author's personal experiences. You will also find words of wisdom from other well-traveled parents who have made exploring the world an integral feature of their families' lives. Taryn Ash, her husband, Sam and two kids, Declan and Scout, put their comfortable lives in the U.S. on hold for several glorious months, to embark on a life-affirming tour of 12 countries on four continents. Together they camped atop a 4x4 in the Namibian desert, ate spicy cobra in Vietnam, taught English to enthusiastic youngsters in Zimbabwe, and earned blisters on their hands restoring a medieval fortress wall in southern France. They hunted for tropical shells with local children on a remote Philippine island, worked hands-on to rehabilitate monkeys and baboons in South Africa, and collected data on African wildlife for academic research. They splashed their ways through pitch-black tunnels speckled with florescent glow worms in New Zealand, practiced Buddhist chant under the tutelage of a wise monk in rural Laos, and learnt to kite board through the winds of the South China Sea. And that's not all. This book was written with the sole purpose of helping adventure-minded parents to grab the kids and go on their extended family vacation of a lifetime.

Reminiscent of Wiseguy, Mob Boss is a compelling biography from two prominent mob experts recounting the life and times of the first acting boss of an American Mafia family to turn government witness Alfonso "Little Al" D'Arco, the former acting boss of the Luchese organized crime family, was the highest-ranking mobster to ever turn government witness when he flipped in 1991. His decision to flip prompted many others to make the same choice, including John Gotti's top aide, Salvatore "Sammy the Bull" Gravano, and his testimony sent more than fifty mobsters to prison. In Mob Boss, award-winning news reporters Jerry Capeci and Tom Robbins team up for this unparalleled account of D'Arco's life and the New York mob scene that he embraced for four decades. Until the day he switched sides, D'Arco lived and breathed the old-school gangster lessons he learned growing up in Brooklyn and fine-tuned on the mean streets of Little Italy. But when he learned he was marked to be whacked, D'Arco quit the mob. His defection decimated his crime family and opened a window on mob secrets going back a hundred years. After speaking with D'Arco, the authors reveal unprecedented insights, exposing shocking secrets and troublesome truths about a city where a famous pizza parlor doubled as a Mafia center for multi-million-dollar heroin deals, where hit men carried out murders dressed as women, and where kidnapping a celebrity newsman's son was deemed appropriate revenge for the father's satirical novel. Capeci and Robbins spent hundreds of hours in conversation with D'Arco, and exhausted many hours more fleshing out his stories in this riveting narrative that takes readers behind the famous witness testimony for a comprehensive look at the Mafia in New York City.

This PEN/Bellwether Prize–winning novel set in a state-run facility for disabled teenagers is “saucy, brutally funny, gritty, profane, poignant and real” (The Kansas City Star). Playwright and activist Susan Nussbaum’s powerful debut novel invites us into the lives of a group of typical teenagers—alienated, funny, yearning for autonomy—except that they live in an institution for juveniles with disabilities. This unfamiliar, isolated landscape is much the same as the world outside: friendships are forged, trust is built, love affairs are kindled, and rules are broken. But those who call it home have little or no control over their fate. Good Kings Bad Kings challenges our definitions of what it means to be disabled in a story told with remarkable authenticity and in voices that resound with humor and spirit. “This is fiction at its best . . . Simply and breathtakingly honest . . . A stunning accomplishment.” —Barbara Kingsolver “Nussbaum’s dramatist skills translate powerfully into fiction as she gives voices to an infatuating cast of characters . . . This is unquestionably an authentic, galvanizing, and righteous novel.” —Booklist (starred review)

Ten-year-old Mary Reed is known by those closest to her to be a reflective, intelligent, sensitive, unassuming young girl who abounds in the joys of growing up in the sparsely populated rural village of Bloomville. However, those family members and friends living in the harshly challenging woodlands of the sweeping pine forests of northern Wisconsin in the mid-1940's are fully unaware of the earth-shaking secret she conceals from them. Living within a matriarchal family, Mary, youngest of three children, inherits strength, wisdom and spirit of optimism and caring from her mother and grandmother. Above all else, she gains from them an understanding of the vibrant forces held in the wilds of nature. As much at ease in exploring the bordering swampland behind her home as she is in sharing dreams and laughter with friend s and her classmates in the village 's one-room schoolhouse, Mary develops a familial kinship with the creatures of the woods. Something separates Mary from other children, a strange power within her that frightens and saddens her and will forever remain hidden. She first notices this phenomenon that makes her different in the early years. Unlike other children, she is never ill, injured, or fearful of anything. Above all, there is the matter of "the light," a weird aberration that gives her unimaginable abilities to alter physical actions of people and objects. Unable to comprehend this oddity, she conceals it out of embarrassment , wishing for it to remain her secret. In the opening chapter of the book, Mary has rescued her brother Tom and sister Sandy from an attack by a mean bully of a man, notorious throughout their rural township for cruel senseless behavior. As the story unfolds, it becomes apparent that this bully, a man named Curt Olmeyer, is following orders from the local deputy-sheriff as part of a plot to drive away the sheriffs family and take his job. Their plot begins with harassment of people and evolves into the kidnapping of a young girl. Mary’s intervention locates and saves the victim, but Mary is hesitant to tell adults what she suspects. However, her opinionated and emotional older sister Sandy shares her belief in Olmeyer's role in the crime with girlfriends of the two sisters. The girls, Peggy, Bonnie, and Sandy agree to emulate the antics of comic strip heroes and go to the Olmeyer's farm to acquire evidence to implicate him. Mary disagrees with their idea, but goes along with it to protect them if need be. Peggy arranges for the girls to be driven out to a pond for skating. The pond is located near the Olmeyer farm. Neither the parents nor Tom or "boyfriend" Herbert knows of the girls plans. While at the farm, the girls find an abused dangerous creature waiting for them and soon learn the absent Olmeyers, Curt and his innocent and abused special needs younger brother, lzzy, are away from their house , kidnapping a second child. Mary's village is shaken by the news of the separate kidnappings of two children. For one the few times in her young life, her latent magical powers are unleashed to thwart the criminals' plans to harm the children, but the confrontation with the mastermind, the sinister deputy sheriff, and his deranged, but goofy henchman brings the struggle to her front door. Intense, powerful, exciting and humorous face -offs between Mary and the culprits continue to escalate until a climatic confrontation forces the adults in the community to discover the plot of the evil doers to bum down the school building on the evening of the annual Christmas program's final rehearsal. It is at the schoolhouse where the subplots are resolved within the flurry of Mary neutralizing the criminal boss while his accomplice flees to face a fatal confrontation with his own conscience. In the ensuing days, calm settles across the village and as Christmas day draws to a close and darkness descends upon the frozen swampland bordering the Reed hom
