The twisted, beloved Dollanganger legend began two generations before Corrine Foxworth locked away her children in Flowers in the Attic. The second book in a new prequel story arc, Out of the Attic explores the Dollanganger family saga by traveling back decades to when the clan’s wicked destiny first took root. Married to the handsome, wealthy Garland Foxworth following a wildfire romance and an unexpected pregnancy, young Corrine Dixon finds her life very different from how she imagined it. Often alone in the mansion of Foxworth Hall, she can practically feel the ancestors’ judgment of her as insufficient—as not a Foxworth. Stern portraits glare at her from the walls, and the servants treat her strangely. Nothing in the vast place is truly hers. Even her son, Malcolm Foxworth, born in the luxe Swan Room and instantly whisked away to a wet nurse, feels alien to her. With a husband alternately absent and possessively close, Corrine doesn’t yet realize that she’s barely scratched the surface of what lies beneath Foxworth Hall’s dark facade and the family that guards its legacies. With the fortieth anniversary celebration of Flowers in the Attic, and ten new Lifetime movies in the past five years, there has never been a better time to experience the forbidden world of V.C. Andrews.

The beloved humorist and bestselling author returns with his most riotous collection of essays to date. Overflowing with his trademark outdoorsman's wit, Patrick F. McManus's newest collection ponders the strange allure of the RV, the existential implications of being lost, the baffling tendency of animals to outsmart those who wish to hunt them, and the singular pleasure of doubling the size of every fish one doesn't actually catch. Combining the curmudgeonly voice of Dave Barry and the sly humor of Garrison Keillor, McManus brilliantly captures the everyday absurdities that comprise our existence. Alongside his humor, McManus's inimitable vision consistently evokes a childlike wonder at the natural world. Even if we are running low on food, the compass is broken, and we are fairly certain we have just spotted a family of Sasquatches frolicking in the treetops, The Bear in the Attic makes the outdoors seem irresistible.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, and questioning youth have been ignored, invisibilized, and underserved by our institutions at a great social cost. Based on that understanding, this action research project encompassed a process which acknowledged the existence and service needs of sexual minority youth and then provided the needed services through a collaborative group process with the youth themselves. the project was conducted within a mainstream youth social service agency in the City of Philadelphia over a sixteen month period. During that time, services in the form of a weekly psychoeducational support group were initially piloted, and the existence and needs of sexual minority youth were determined. the group, which came to be known as the Attic because it met on the top floor of the Voyage House Building, grew rapidly and evolved into an ongoing Voyage House department, Sexual Minority Youth Programs, which provided services to a total of 234 youth during the project period. the action research document, Out of the Closet - Into the Attic describes the process of establishing the Attic group services in participation with the youth service recipients and of "visibilizing" the youth through social action. It also provides insight into the forces that created the Attic group as well as the groups impact on the youth, and their life experiences. Attic group participants reported that the group was very helpful in their adjustment to a stigmatized identity and in overcoming their sense of isolation. Outcome and process measures were used to describe the demographic features of the Attic youth, characteristics of their group participation, and the community based activities that evolved from the Attic process.

Jane Edwards had just recently lost her husband unexpectedly and thought it was his time to go anyway because he had a weak heart. She was sad just like any normal woman in her shoes would be, but as time passed by she was able to cope with his passing the best that she could. Jane loved to paint, but because her husband was very ill her passion was put on hold. As the nights wore on and Jane was keeping busy painting, something was lurking behind a door in the attic that had been locked for over a century. Jane’s nightmares were back, but this time it wasn't her husband she was having nightmares about it was something much evil than that. She decided the best way to deal with her nightmares was to drink a glass of wine just before going to bed in hopes the nightmares would subside, but the wine was just a temporary fix that couldn't be ignored. One night as she was sleeping footsteps could be heard in the attic, but she just blamed it on the wine, and the fact she was living in an older home all alone. The next morning she called her friend Susan to try to get some reassurance that she was getting worked up over nothing. Jane asked her to come over for tea around noon time and Susan gladly accepted the invitation. Susan brought over some self-help books to help her cope with her loss so she could stay more focused on her passion of painting. As Jane and Susan were sitting on the back porch sipping on their tea, Jane said, "I really feel much better now that I asked you over. It really gets hard knowing my husband won't be coming home for supper and taking walks with me in the afternoon." "Jane, I can't imagine what you are going through, but I just want you to know you can count on me to be there anytime you need to talk," said a teary eyed Susan. Jane and Susan's conversation went on until dark, then Susan said goodbye to her friend and drove home. Jane gathered her books and headed back into her house for the night. Just as Jane's head hit her pillow a loud banging noise was coming from the attic. Just to make matters worse a storm knocked out the power so Jane had to feel her way into the kitchen to get a flashlight to see what the loud banging noise coming from the attic was. Jane turned on her flashlight, and carried a baseball bat with her in case it was just an animal that was trapped and couldn't get out.

Wright Morris's "Nebraska Trilogy" (1946-49) embodies his attempt to capture and come to terms with his past. According to David Madden, in his study Wright Morris, "In The Inhabitants [a picture collection] the emphasis is on the artifacts inhabited and on the land; in The Home Place [narrative and pictures], on the inhabitants themselves; and in The World in the Attic, on what the land and the people signify to one man, Clyde Muncy, writer and self-exiled Nebraskan. . . . What was only suggested to Muncy in The Home Place is further developed, although not entirely resolved, in The World in the Attic. . . . [In it], Morris achieves the kind of objective conceptualization that is characteristic of his best novels. The first half of the book is impressionistic, a series of reminiscences like The Home Place; but the second half has a novelist narrative line. In The Home Place, the past, saturated in the immediate present, is merely alluded to. In The World in the Attic, however, the past is specifically and dramatically related to the present."

Having given up a high-powered job and the lifestyle to match, Tessa Hainsworth had no idea how hard she would struggle when, full of optimism, she fulfilled her dream of moving to rural Cornwall with her young family one September. In the first book Up With the Larks Tessa charted her first turbulent year with the Royal Mail, and her transformation from outsider to 'Posh Postie', adopted Cornishwoman and much-loved member of her new community. In Seagulls in the Attic Tessa is now a pillar of the community, or so she thinks. Life is becoming hard for her and her family as they realise that being part of a small community is not quite the idyll she had been lead to believe, as lack of money and the demands of family life take their toll. But, as with the first book, Tessa finds the fun and resilience to turn all the hardships to her advantage - eventually. The first book sold over 6,000 copies in hardcover and is rapidly becoming a must-read book for all those who hanker for an escape to the country.
