New York Times best-selling author Iyanla Vanzant recounts the last decade of her life and the spiritual lessons learned—from the price of success during her meteoric rise as a TV celebrity on Oprah, the Iyanla TV show (produced by Barbara Walters), to the dissolution of her marriage and her daughter’s 15 months of illness and death on Christmas day. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Iyanla shares why everything we need to learn is reflected in our relationships and the strength and wisdom she has gained by supporting others in their journeys to make sense out of the puzzle pieces of their lives.

From his earliest reading memories in wartime Britain through five decades of librarianship, eminent librarian and former ALA President Michael Gorman offers insights from his extraordinary career in this new memoir. Gorman relates his personal and professional journey in prose that is by turns charming, opinioned, and revealing. He made perhaps his most significant contribution to librarianship as editor of the 1978 Anglo- American Cataloguing Rules, a major development that receives detailed attention here. The debates and arguments that would shape professional practice for years to come are dramatically presented, with a vivid cast of characters including leading librarians from two continents. Broken Pieces, Gorman’s account of being on the front lines of many of the most important decisions made in librarianship during his career, is a timely and entertaining read.

Broken Pieces is a book written about sporadic life experiences that many of us have experienced or maybe not but it presents another way of thinking about certain situations that we experienced or not during our life journey. I am almost sure that when you read these different experiences you will relate to them if you have not already experienced them and if you have you can see if you handled them the same way the writer did. Make sure you take advantage of the journal in the back of the book . One thing I want you to think about is when these sporadic events happen in your life either they change you or help you understand that the majority of life’s crisis and developments are how you respond to them because your life responds to you.

"Broken Pieces" is a collection of my poems which I had penned down, around two decades back, which sadly, though was sitting on the my bookshelf catching dust. After years of hesitation, I have finally decided to share them with you. These poems were written at a time in my life when I was pushed to the edge. That’s when I found these words. They have served me well; in healing my emotional wounds, which I say we all have our share, while travelling through our life’s paths. None of us are immune to it, but then at the end we need to remind ourselves that "a luminous ray of hope awaits at the other end."

My garden of flowers and broken pieces is a collection of poetry and prose, that in the most honest and vulnerable way reflects the journey I embarked on. From feeling like I was spinning out of control and not seeing any sign of light, to looking up at the stars with hope and a newfound love for myself. I would have laughed if you told me my grand adventure would have taken me back to myself. At the time, that would've felt disappointing, or even silly, but now I know that in the depths of my heart, I found everything I was ever looking for. To say I'm nervous about letting you into my ocean of vulnerability is an understatement, but I've gotten to know this fear quite well over the past few years, and now I know it must be worth it. I hope that through my words, you uncover pieces of yourself and send a few more drops of compassion and love to those parts that feel lost or unloved. I hope that by the last page, you too, get to see yourself with understanding, acceptance, and wonder.

One hundred years ago, on December 6, 1917, the French munitions ship Mont Blanc collided with the Belgian relief vessel Imo in the Halifax Harbour. At first, a small fire broke out aboard the Mont Blanc, which grew bigger crowds of people and emergency responders linded the shores of Halifax and Dartmouth to get a better look. Suddenly, the Mont Blanc's explosive cargo blew up, flattening homes and businesses, and triggering a tsunami. Amid the confusion and devastation that followed the blast was fourteen-year-old Barbara Orr, who had been walking from her neighbourhood in Richmond to a friend's house. Follow Barbara as she navigates post-explosion Halifax, learning about rescue efforts, the kindness of strangers, and the bravery of heroes like Vincent Coleman along the way. Part of the popular Compass series, this full-colour non-fiction book includes highlighted glossary terms, informative sidebars, over 50 illustrations and historical photographs, a detailed index, and recommended further reading.

The sister of “La Diva de la Banda”—legendary Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera—opens up for the first time about Jenni’s untimely death and her own triumph over abuse and addiction. Growing up as the youngest Rivera, Rosie was surrounded by unconditional love, support, and affection. There was nothing that her family wouldn’t do for her, especially her sister Jenni, who was the most important thing in the world to Rosie. With her strong will and a solid foundation, Rosie was set to conquer the world. Yet life would take a drastic turn when Rivera was scarred by sexual abuse within her family at a very young age. Living in fear and confined by painful secrets, she was plagued with constant threats, confusion, and pain. Not only was she stripped of her childhood and innocence, but she was also robbed of her confidence and self-worth. Feeling completely shattered and lost, Rivera plunged into a world of damaging habits and deep depression. For the first time ever, and with unflinching candor and courage, Rosie shares the traumatic details of her abuse and the daily struggle to live and how, through faith and the love of her family, she found life once more. Yet Rosie’s life would be severely impacted once again as the worst tragedy imaginable hit and her biggest fear came to reality—the death of her beloved sister. Equally harrowing and uplifting, Rosie’s story is a true testament to beating the odds and proves that despite the worst of times and no matter how many more challenges life has in store, it is always possible to pick up the pieces and find the strength and purpose to dream and live again.

From Wattpad phenom Sarah White comes a steamy teen romance about one girl’s quest to find herself after a traumatic breakup. The only thing worse than having your boyfriend dump you is having him dump you for your best friend. For Everly Morgan the betrayal came out of nowhere. One moment she had what seemed like the perfect high school relationship, and the next, she wanted to avoid the two most important people in her life. Every time she sees them kiss in the hallways her heart breaks a little more. The last thing on Everly’s mind is getting into another relationship, but when she meets Gabe in her therapist’s waiting room she can’t deny their immediate connection. Somehow he seems to understand Everly in a way that no one else in her life does, and maybe it’s because Gabe also has experience grappling with issues outside of his control. Just because they share so many of the same interests and there is an undeniable spark between them doesn’t mean Everly wants anything more than friendship. After all, when you only barely survived your last breakup, is it really worth risking your heart again?
