Skylar and Storm Morrison may be gorgeous twin sisters, but they are as different as night and day. Skylar is savvy and book-smart; Storm is shrewd and street-smart. But a twist of fate lands Storm in jail, where she must trade her Fendi bags and Prada boots for an orange jumpsuit and laceless white sneakers. Meanwhile Skylar makes a name for herself by transforming the restaurant that once belonged to the twins’ late father, Dutch, into Legends, Philadelphia’s hottest new nightclub. Now, newly released from prison, Storm has some serious living to do. And she’s ready to take control of what’s rightfully hers—a share of Legends—with the help of some of Philly’s most notorious thugs. But moving back into the real world will prove much harder than Storm ever imagined. And as Skylar and Storm negotiate their new relationship, both women will feel the pull of Dutch, a figure so powerful he can keep his girls in line years after his death. In the end, the sisters will have to face their shared, tumultuous past—and a future that’s both uncertain and wide open.

A touching coming-of-age novel featuring a protagonist who’s the kind of girl every woman wishes she’d had as a best friend growing up Billie Weinstein sees things most people don’t see. Her sister, Cassie, has always been her touchstone, the person she turns to for advice and guidance, the person whose opinion means the most to her. But ever since Cassie left for college, she’s seemed different—withdrawn, obsessed with studying, and she barely eats. Billie can’t talk to her parents about it; they act as if nothing is wrong, refusing to see the changes in their older daughter. Now Billie has become Cassie’s confidante, the only one Cassie trusts enough to tell the truth to, and Billie is suddenly thrust into an unfamiliar—and disturbing—role; one that drives her to make choices that will forever change the way she looks at the world. A poignant story of self-discovery, My Sister’s Bones explores the shifting landscape of family, friendship, and love through the eyes of a young girl possessed of a wisdom far beyond her years. In Billie Weinstein we meet a character as funny, vivid, and endearing as any in recent memory, and watch her transformation as she achieves freedom from the seemingly unbreakable web of family ties. Praise for My Sister’s Bones “A poignant but also lively and humorous novel, with characters so believable you expect them to rise up off the page.”—New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Berg “My Sister’s Bones works a miracle. . . . Funny and idiosyncratic, elegant and simple . . . [Cathi] Hanauer gives power and dignity to the subject of anorexia.”—The Village Voice “A persuasive, well-rendered, and rich first novel about family.”—Kirkus Reviews “Beautifully written . . . Hanauer paints a disturbing picture of the horrific effects of anorexia on patient and family.”—Library Journal

Raised by a single mother and a product of the Rion Lane housing project in Cincinnati, Ohio, author Stephen E. Hooks narrates both his memories and his discoveries as he struggled throughout the course of his life to establish his identity as an African American man. "Before I Loved Her, I Healed Myself" reveals Hooks's challenging childhood growing up without a strong male role model, the compelling influence of the women in his life (including his mother and grandmother), his foray into drug trafficking, and his playboy lifestyle. It exposes the deepest wounds he acquired on his life's journey and examines his quest to find the meaning of manhood. This memoir presents one man's chronicle of self-discovery in the process of finding love and purpose in life; it's story about pain, healing, restoration, and redemption. Via Hooks's emotional story, "Before I Loved Her, I Healed Myself" shows that transformation and personal growth are possible.
