When the name of Theo Walcott was included in the England squad for the 2006 World Cup, shock waves ran through the football world. But no one was more surprised than Theo himself. Five years later, Theo Walcott is one of the most recognizable names in football. As the English heart of the brilliant young Arsenal team, he has become a firm favourite at the Emirates Stadium. He represents everything that is good about the beautiful game: a player with his feet on the ground, but lightning quick on the field. He carries the expectations of the nation on his shoulders, especially since one night in Croatia made him the youngest player in history to score a hat-trick for England. It has been an incredible adventure, an unbelievable story for a quiet boy from a small village who only started playing football when he was 10. But how does it feel for your dreams to come true? In Theo: Growing Up Fast, Theo Walcott takes you right inside his world.

Ten-year-old Theo lives with his grandfather and a minder in a vast, decrepit Long Island mansion said to have inspired The Great Gatsby. His English father, a world famous rock musician, spends most of the year away on tour. His mother, beautiful and fragile, drifts in and out of his life amid bouts of rehab. Alone for much of the time, Theo takes refuge in his attic bedroom, among his collection of live butterfly pupas and the tales of piratical adventure that fire his imagination. Then, a fax arrives: 'Reef the mainsail.' It seems Theo's father is coming home to record a new album, and he's planning to stay the whole summer. Along with the rest of the band, managers, PR people, agents, and countless hangers-on good, bad and downright ugly . . .

Wayne Rooney, England's record goal scorer, is one of the most feared and respected strikers to have graced the Premier League in the last decade. He is certainly its most famous icon, appearing on the front pages of the newspapers nearly as often as on the back. Wayne started his glittering career as a teenage wonder at Everton, the club he had staunchly supported as a boy. A self-confessed and fiercely passionate blue-blood, Rooney was raised in Croxteth, a product of the rough district just outside the shadow of Goodison Park. After a white-hot start, the teenager joined regional rivals, Manchester United, in a seismic transfer and, in his deeply successful time at Old Trafford, won sixteen major honours, played in three World Cups, married his childhood sweetheart and began a young family, throwing off his reputation as the gifted 'wild-child' of English football. Yet, in the summer of 2017, the prodigal son returned to his first club, providing Evertonians with a sense of pride and football fans everywhere with a classic narrative. His warm reception made it clear that Rooney still has a special place in the hearts of Toffees fans, and the saga embodies the pride and passion that has propelled the Premier League to become the most exciting - and profitable - in the world. Told by veteran football writer Ian MacLeay, this is the definitive story of Rooney's explosive, emotive and turbulent return to Everton Football Club, and the historic season which followed.

Melvina Brown has become an expert at holding it together. On a horse farm in California, she’s raising two boys—smart, tough Archie and sweet Theo, who dreams of playing baseball, and doesn’t let the fact that he has only one arm stop him. A perfect PTA mom Melvina is not—her boots are too dirty for that. She’s just taking it one day at a time, with a little help from her boyfriend, her twin sister and her dad. And while her heart is still heavy sometimes with the loss of her beloved brother Henry, who long ago went mysteriously missing, Mel keeps his spirit nearby, making him a larger-than-life hero in his nephews’ imaginations, creating tales of his epic adventures for their bedtime stories. It’s a life that works pretty well—until her estranged husband shows up at their door, wanting to make up for lost time with his sons. A family that plays ball in a graveyard and stays up late to watch rare flowers bloom will never be ordinary. But together, the tempestuous, mismatched Browns stumble through anger and confusion to laughter and understanding, discovering that sometimes love really is the only answer. "A charming family of misfits struggling to make sense of what life's dealt them. Sit back—and be sure to grab a box of tissues—and enjoy."—Jo-Ann Mapson, author of Hank & Chloe and the Bad Girl Creek series "A writer with a poet's eye, a philosopher's mind, and a mother's heart."—Jo-Ann Mapson

"I remember Claire making me promise I would always go out of my way for someone I truly loved - 'to Brooklyn if necessary' --even though we both knew I was too young to know what that could mean, what price it could exact. I can only tell my daughters what happened and hope they will begin to understand and trust their own lives to fill in the rest. If I do this right, someday they may go as far as Brooklyn for me." - Willy Bouvier Hirsh, MOTHERS Praise for Mothers "With a delicate and assured touch, this poignant novel explores the meaning of love, family, and identity. This is a book to go to Brooklyn for." -- Publishers Weekly "I just reread Mothers and I am stunned by its beauty, grace, and vision." --Sonia Sanchez, Poet, American Book Award Winner, Fellow National Academy of Arts & Letters "Compelling, fascinating, good social medicine..." --San Francisco Chronicle "A tender, moving story of love, family and identity, Mothers is a novel you won't want to miss." --Bookstar "Excellent writing.. the fantasy and mythic weight of a fairy tale." --Kirkus Reviews You could say Justice Kennedy wrote the Romer opinion in part because he read modern gay fiction like Jax Peters Lowell's Mothers. or at least his law clerk had." --Carolyn Grose, Mitchell Law Review "A beautiful love story, Mothers remains one of the quintessential descriptions of a loving, nurturing family.
