In the long, hot Illinois summer of 1973, insecure, motherless Jamie falls under the dangerous spell of her older, more worldly cousin Fawn, who’s come to stay with Jamie and her uncle as penance for committing an “unmentionable act.” It is a time of awakenings and corruptions, of tragedy and loss, as Jamie slowly discovers the extent to which Fawn will use anything and anyone to further her own ends—and recognizes, perhaps too late, her own complicity in the disaster that takes shape around them. “A captivating story about a teenager’s struggle to be accepted by her peers. . . . The story is more than believable—it simply comes alive. The book perfectly captures the free-spirited attitude of the decade and the curiosity of adolescence.”—Tampa Tribune “McLain compels as she excavates two tragedies.” —Chicago Sun-Times

(Book). In 1964-1965, Larry Kane was the only American reporter, broadcast or newspaper, to travel with the Fab Four on every stop of their North American tour. In Ticket to Ride , Kane tells the story of what it was like to literally live with the four young men who would leave an indelible mark on contemporary music. Weaving in the voices of the Beatles themselves and covering the electrifying action of the road-the performances, the mischief, and all the players who cropped up along the way during those key years that catapulted the Beatles to major success Ticket to Ride is unlike any other book on the Beatles. The story is told from the perspective of a seasoned journalist, who at the time of the tour was just coming into his own in a nation that was bracing for the Vietnam War, the civil rights movement, and a radical shift in rock-and-roll music. Twenty-one and eager to cover "big news," Kane unknowingly was in the process of covering one of the biggest music events in history. Ticket to Ride is an inside account of these exciting years during the career of the band that redefined rock and roll. A must-have for Beatles fans, this paperback edition includes a foreword by the legendary Dick Clark, a CD of bonus interview material, rare photographs, and an appendix detailing tour schedules.

Hussey's memior begins with a letter to his son, Gregory written a few weeks before his first deployment to Iraq as a officer in the U.S. Army. Hussey flew to Ft. Hood, Texas to be with his son, meet his commanding officers, attend the briefing sessions, and meet the other soldiers as they prepared for the long journey to the deadly Anbar Province of western Iraq. Hussey handed his letter to his son as he exited the barracks for the short bus ride to the flight line. "I wanted to share my life, my growing-up years, with my son because I feared I may never see him again." Hussey's letter details a story of a young boy growing up in relentless poverty and abuse. "There were stories from my childhood that I had never shared with him, and he never asked. Hussey left high school to find work and support his mother and younger brother. His brother suffered continuously from bleeding episodes resulting from his being born a hemophiliac. In 1965, after serving four years in the U.S. Air Force, Hussey was faced with the greatest series of challenges one could imagine. How he managed to navigate through that period has come to define him. This is a story of triumph over disaster...an unflinchingly honest memoir of a man with uncommon character who outwitted the odds to bring home his "ticket to ride."

1965: America’s favorite small-town detective must solve the murder of two old friends against the backdrop of America’s cultural revolution. For small-town Iowa lawyer Sam McCain the year 1965 is not a sweet one. His father is gravely ill. His elitist boss is just now coming out of rehab. The brilliant lawyer he'd hoped to start a relationship with has gone back to her husband in Chicago. And first young soldier from Black River Falls returns home from a strange place called Viet Nam. In a coffin. Against this background McCain tries to enjoy himself during the long Labor Day weekend party the town sponsors every year, reuniting with several old friends who appeared throughout the first six novels. Now that they're all in their late twenties some of the old grudges and rivalries seem silly—until two of them are murdered for what seems to be a motive buried in the past. With the Beatles, Rolling Stones, and Bob Dylan irritating those over thirty—and the boys in long hair and girls wearing blouses without bras irritating people even more—Sam McCain is forced to realize that his old world, along with the entire country's, is about to end forever.
