I don't entirely understand how anyone gets a boyfriend. Or a girlfriend. It just seems like the most impossible odds. A perfect alignment of feelings and circumstances . . . Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love. No matter how many times her twin sister, Cassie, tells her to woman up, Molly is always careful. Better to be careful than be hurt. But when Cassie gets a new girlfriend who comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick, everything changes. Will is funny, flirtatious and basically the perfect first boyfriend. There's only one problem: Molly's coworker, Reid, the awkward Tolkien superfan she could never fall for . . . right? A heartwarming and hilarious story about growing up and learning to be comfortable in your own skin.

From bestselling YA rom-com queen Becky Albertalli, author of Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda (Love, Simon), comes a new novel about daring to step out of the shadows and into the spotlight in love, life and, yes, theatre. Contrary to popular belief, best friends Kate Garfield and Anderson Walker are not codependent. Carpooling to and from theatre rehearsals? Environmentally sound and efficient. Consulting each other on every single life decision? Basic good judgment. Pining for the same guys from afar? Shared crushes are more fun anyway. But when Kate and Andy's latest long-distance crush shows up at their school, everything goes off-script. Matt Olsson is talented and sweet, and Kate likes him. She really likes him. The only problem? So does Anderson. Turns out, communal crushes aren't so fun when real feelings are involved. This one might even bring the curtains down on Kate and Anderson's friendship.

James C. McCurrach was born in Brooklyn, New York and was the namesake of a self made business success story. He had a privileged upbringing that included a succession of private schools culminating in a B.A. from Brown University in Providence, R.I. He traveled a circuitous route as an adult - a journey that included tennis, a Vice Presidency at the former Bankers Trust Company in New York City as well as the principal in a New York restaurant. After many personal hurdles, he finally succeeded in his original goal of a teaching career. Additionally, his work assisting foreign students in the English language resulted in the publication of two English textbooks for English beginners in Japan and Korea. He is a former squash racquets champion with numerous top ten rankings in various age categories. He resides in San Francisco with his partner of 29 years. This Memoir is dedicated to P. Justin Jacobs for his loyalty, support and continuing encouragement A troubled youth in search of direction finds himself groping to find his place despite numerous obstacles centering about his Father looking for a duplicate. Such are some of the problems facing James C. McCurrach Jr. as he passes through his early childhood years and the social upheavals encountered on the path to a new century. All of this is complicated by his growing uncertainty of his sexual proclivities at a time when homosexuality was ridiculed and considered a deviancy beyond the pale. At the same time, his Fathers' influence was a constant presence that would lead to a series of disasters, both socially and financially. Despite trying to throw off his Father's yoke, there remained a continuing need to please him and establish some sort of positive approval resulting in a series of tumultuous relationships and career moves. His Mom had always told the youngster that he would be a late bloomer and indeed that prediction would come to pass as in his later years the teaching profession would provide the purpose and rewards that had long eluded him.

Travel back in time to this peaceful New England community during the simpler days of the post WWII era of 1955, and join Joe on a reminiscent walk down Main Street America to the Five and Dime where he'll ask Kathy out for the first time. Visit the Connelly's home as Kathy and her family gather around their potbellied stove and trade stories of family values and of Chester, the fabled family protector. It's the picture-perfect family Joe's always wanted and when he calls on Kathy, he's welcomed with open arms. When he proposes and she says yes, their future promises them an idyllic lifetime together, but fate breaks that promise and Joe's plans are turned upside down. Suddenly the peaceful 1950's become his prison and the keys to his prison are hidden away in the true meaning of life and love as told to him by Riggs, an elderly black man with roots in slavery. Riggs shares his three truths with Joe as they've been handed down for generations, but there's more to Riggs and his three truths than meets the eye.

Nine years post-Quentin has been a breeze. At least--that's my story, and I'm sticking do it. I've learned to breathe again without an ache in my chest. I've learned to laugh again without shadows in my eyes. I've trained myself to dwell on the good times, by letting the lies, broken promises, and unanswered questions drift away in the wind. How mature of me, right? Quentin Ashton James V. He was everyone's golden boy, the most popular guy in school, the apple of his parents' eye, and American Royalty. All the girls wanted to do him. All the boys wanted to be him. He was groomed to take over the world one day. Little did I know, he was also destined to break my heart. Quentin and I have history--a history that precedes us and a history that dooms us. And just when I think I'm living my best life without him, Quentin, yet again, turns my world upside down. This is a BWWM interracial contemporary romance novel with steamy love scenes and a HEA. This book is intended for the 18+ reader.*** Although Unrequited is Book 2 in the Surrender series, it can be read as a standalone novel. However, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you first read Broken--Book 1 in the Surrender Series--in order to avoid spoilers and gain more in-depth insight into Quentin and Fatima's story.***

This definitive anthology casts Sinophone studies as the study of Sinitic-language cultures born of colonial and postcolonial influences. Essays by such authors as Rey Chow, Ha Jin, Leo Ou-fan Lee, Ien Ang, Wei-ming Tu, and David Wang address debates concerning the nature of Chineseness while introducing readers to essential readings in Tibetan, Malaysian, Taiwanese, French, Caribbean, and American Sinophone literatures. By placing Sinophone cultures at the crossroads of multiple empires, this anthology richly demonstrates the transformative power of multiculturalism and multilingualism, and by examining the place-based cultural and social practices of Sinitic-language communities in their historical contexts beyond "China proper," it effectively refutes the diasporic framework. It is an invaluable companion for courses in Asian, postcolonial, empire, and ethnic studies, as well as world and comparative literature.
