📒You Ll Grow Out Of It ✍ Jessi Klein
📝You ll Grow Out of It Book Synopsis : PEOPLE'S BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR! ONE OF NEW YORK TIMES' NOTABLE BOOKS OF 2016!INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BESTSELLER! YOU'LL GROW OUT OF IT hilariously, and candidly, explores the journey of the twenty-first century woman. As both a tomboy and a late bloomer, comedian Jessi Klein grew up feeling more like an outsider than a participant in the rites of modern femininity. In YOU'LL GROW OUT OF IT, Klein offers-through an incisive collection of real-life stories-a relentlessly funny yet poignant take on a variety of topics she has experienced along her strange journey to womanhood and beyond. These include her "transformation from Pippi Longstocking-esque tomboy to are-you-a-lesbian-or-what tom man," attempting to find watchable porn, and identifying the difference between being called "ma'am" and "miss" ("Miss sounds like you weigh ninety-nine pounds"). Raw, relatable, and consistently hilarious, YOU'LL GROW OUT OF IT is a one-of-a-kind book by a singular and irresistible comic voice.

📒Church Boy ✍ Kirk Franklin
📝Church Boy Book Synopsis : When he fell from a darkened stage in November 1996, Kirk Franklin could easily have been killed. That ten-foot plunge might have ended the career of one of America's most exciting young prodigies. But thanks to his dramatic recovery, the fall added not only a new dimension to his story but it brought Kirk Franklin to the attention of millions who otherwise might never have heard the name. Today Kirk Franklin is bigger than ever. His recordings have topped the charts, selling more copies in less time than any gospel musician in history. He has won every award gospel music has to offer but his own success is the last thing on his mind. This is the story of a young man from the poor side of town. He was taunted and teased as a child, but his faith and his remarkable musical talent helped him overcome the odds. In these pages Kirk Franklin reveals the real source of his strength. "What motivates me," he says, "is the knowledge that God has redeemed me from the pain and the hurts and the sin of my past and given me a new joy I can't even explain. It's not just for show," he says. "It's the truth, and that's what I want to express."
📒Before The Monkeys Came ✍ W.P. Strange
📝Before the Monkeys Came Book Synopsis : "Before the Monkeys Came" is a 2001 winner in the Writers Digest Self-published Book Awards, Literary/Mainstream category. Frank watches as his friends are drafted to fight a war no one believes in, or he helps them escape to Canada when their student deferments expire to avoid serving in the rock and roll war. Never having to chose, being forever 4-F (unfit for military service) has robbed him of the chance to make his own political statement. Frank was born with hemophilia, a hereditary disease passed from mother to son. His blood doesnt clot normally, so even a minor bump to a knee or elbow joint often becomes a serious bleed, ultimately causing crippling, muscle atrophy and extreme episodes of intense pain. As a child frequent hospital stays were the norm, and missed school routine. The needles, transfusions and traction are the only therapies being preformed in the fifties and early sixties when the average life expectancy of a boy with hemophilia was fifteen. With the first significant advances in cryo-precipitate (clotting factor removed from whole blood, spun in a centrifuge and frozen for later IV injection.) the first real help arrives by the mid-sixties. Later came Factor VIII, manufactured from whole blood from blood banks like the Red Cross, and the technology for quick intravenous treatment that worked significantly better than anything that came before, promises a more normal life for those born later than Frank and the other men already significantly impaired. But Franks crippling is stabilized by Factor VIII and he finally sees hope. The comes 1976, the bicentennial year and the year of AIDS. Drug companies poor quality control and the FDAs lack of oversight allows millions of contaminated blood to be processed into Factor VIII and other blood products and distributed to the hemophilia community without regard to the possible infections it could cause. Not warned until 1985, eighty to ninety percent of hemophiliacs who infused Factor VIII during those years becomes HIV positive. A third of them would die of full blown AIDS within a year, hundreds of spouses will be infected, and their children before the spread is controlled. Franks story is only one of thousands of people caught in this terrible web. The treatment that once held such hope and promise for a healthier life, becomes worse than the disease it tried to help. Frank faces heartbreak, loss, new injuries and further crippling as he tries to face down his demons and find a way just to
