A time of tumult, your children's transition from high school to college can also be a time of growth. This book shows you how. Almost Grown is a guide for parents to the final years of high school and first years of college, offering intelligent counsel not only in practical issues such as developing a college search plan or handling questions of money, sex, and substance abuse, but also in the psychological issues that arise during this family transition. Writing as both psychologist and parent, Patricia Pasick tackles the key question of how mothers and fathers can foster adolescents' growth and autonomy while maintaining family connections and stability. She also explores the unexpected: the impact of the changing family on younger siblings, the benefits and frustrations of college students' returning home, the challenges and opportunities that nontraditional families face, and more. Pasick delves into another critical yet underplayed aspect of the college transition: how parents' lives change. Almost Grown guides readers through this major step in adult development and new start to adult partnerships. Almost Grown contains advice from high school and college admissions counselors across the country and, at the heart of the book, stories of personal experience from parents and adolescents who are making, or have made, the transition.

Growing up is hard to do—especially when, technically, you’re already grown up. You yearn for the days when you could play with your toys and retire to your bedroom for a much needed nap.

Now that you’re twenty-something, there are so many things that you need to do, and seemingly, no one to tell you how. . . until now. Launch Your Life is a practical guide to navigating life’s twists and turns, and to achieving success in all you do. You’ll social network with the best of them, write a killer resume, land an interview, and transition into the working world with ease. You’ll also deal with changing relationships with friends and family, you’ll pray hard, grow in your faith, and you’ll even learn to turn your failures into future successes. With Launch Your Life you’ll be prepared, organized, and ready to set yourself up for a smooth transition into your new life of independence. Features include: Two interior pockets to keep papers, receipts, and notes scribbled on napkins Blank calendar and note pages to jot notes and juggle appointments Plastic slots to hold business cards Chapter dividers to help you quickly find what you need A built-in elastic band to help you keep it all together As one who is passionate about doing life and ministry with young adults, I'm always looking for resources to recommend.

The world of poetry can be quite pretentious. Many times, we will read prose from writers who would like us to believe they are not flawed. They talk to us about subjects as if they've mastered them all. Often, it actually seems some poets condescendingly "talk at" their audience instead of "talking to" us. "The Book of Jacob" does not fit that mold. This collection is a journey similar to what many of us have experienced in our lives. Sadness is in an emotionally epic game of tug of war with happiness. Just when we think we've found love, we discover we've found heartache. When we reach points of being ready to give up, a higher power tells us why we shouldn't. We are all perfectly imperfect and accepting that is what "The Book of Jacob" is all about.

I found God. I know, I'd said it once before, to get out of trouble, but this time it's true. I was drawn to a church, and this one hymn, about saving a wretch like me, touched me. So did the reverend, speaking about love, redemption, mercy and grace. It was nothing like the church my mother dragged me to as a kid, trying to keep me from the family life of petty crime. Next thing I knew, tears were rolling down my face as I felt...healed. But does my stiff-necked parole officer believe me? No! How can I convince Brandon Fairchild that this conversion—and the feelings I'm having for this good-looking man—aren't just a con game?

One of the Washington Post’s Best Novels of the Year: A “fascinating” tale of murder in 1880s Idaho, based on real historical events (The Daily Beast). Idaho Territory, June 1887. A small-town judge takes his young daughter fishing, and she catches a man. Another body surfaces, then another. The final toll: over thirty Chinese gold miners brutally murdered. Their San Francisco employer hires Idaho lawman Joe Vincent to solve the case. Soon he journeys up the wild Snake River with Lee Loi, an ambitious young company investigator, and Grace Sundown, a métis mountain guide with too many secrets. As they track the killers across the Pacific Northwest, through haunted canyons and city streets, each must put aside lies and old grievances to survive a quest that will change them forever. Deep Creek is a historical thriller inspired by actual events and people: the 1887 massacre of Chinese miners in remote and beautiful Hells Canyon, the brave judge who went after their slayers, and the sham race-murder trial that followed. In this enhanced ebook edition, Deep Creek teams history with invention, setting authentic photographs and maps alongside the authors’ brilliant fiction to illuminate this long-forgotten American tragedy, in a tale of courage and redemption, loss and love. The Washington Post has named Deep Creek a Best Novel of 2010, and The Daily Beast/Newsweek ranked it among the dozen best Western novels since 1960.

How do today's parents cope when the dreams we had for our children clash with reality? What can we do for our twenty- and even thirty-somethings who can't seem to grow up? How can we help our depressed, dependent, or addicted adult children, the ones who can't get their lives started, who are just marking time or even doing it? What's the right strategy when our smart, capable "adultolescents" won't leave home or come boomeranging back? Who can we turn to when the kids aren't all right and we, their parents, are frightened, frustrated, resentful, embarrassed, and especially, disappointed? In this groundbreaking book, a social psychologist who's been chronicling the lives of American families for over two decades confronts our deepest concerns, including our silence and self-imposed sense of isolation, when our grown kids have failed to thrive. She listens to a generation that "did everything right" and expected its children to grow into happy, healthy, successful adults. But they haven't, at least, not yet -- and meanwhile, we're letting their problems threaten our health, marriages, security, freedom, careers or retirement, and other family relationships. With warmth, empathy, and perspective, Dr. Adams offers a positive, life-affirming message to parents who are still trying to "fix" their adult children -- Stop! She shows us how to separate from their problems without separating from them, and how to be a positive force in their lives while getting on with our own. As we navigate this critical passage in our second adulthood and their first, the bestselling author of I'm Still Your Mother reminds us that the pleasures and possibilities of postparenthood should not depend on how our kids turn out, but on how we do!

This new collector's edition of "Rolling Stones Fans" is limited to 20 copies and includes the numbered 10 x 13-inch print "Delight," signed by Joseph Szabo (born 1944). In 1978, two of Szabo's high school students invited him to join them at a Rolling Stones concert at JFK Stadium in Philadelphia. Sensing a promising photo opportunity, Szabo agreed, packing three 35mm cameras and plenty of black-and-white film. Some 90,000 Rolling Stones fans converged on the stadium for the concert, where Szabo captured them drinking, kissing, smoking, dancing and hanging out. Their young subjects transported by the music, the drugs, the alcohol and the community, Szabo's Rolling Stones fans photographs show unguarded moments of absorption and abandon in the sublimity of the rock and roll gig. Szabo recently returned to the contact sheets and found many unseen images for this new edition.
