Advertising executive Marta Zinsser is no poster child for her wealthy Seattle suburb-and nothing could please her more. This former New Yorker wears combat boots, not Manolos, and drives a righteous Harley hog instead of a Mercedes SUV. Now she's launching her own agency in this land of the Microsoft elite, even though her ten-year-old daughter wishes she'd put on a sweater set and just be normal. Can this ex-urbanite remain uniquely herself without alienating the inner circle of smug, cookie-cutter executive wives? And when push comes to shove, can she stop being the proud odd mom out and take a chance at something frighteningly-and tantalizingly-new?

Clive Hopkins's parents were Salvation Army Officers, which meant their sons had to endure six hours of religious meetings every Sunday (and no football), most kinds of pleasure (including girls) were off limits and friendships were disrupted by frequent moves to new postings. When finally at the age of 14 Clive was coerced into becoming a Soldier himself, it was a step too far, and like his older brother he rebelled and became a 'backslider'. He has now written this entertaining and moving memoir of a youth spent trying to balance the desire to enjoy a normal boyhood with the demands of his parents' calling. In his story, Clive captures evocatively a lost world - and finally resolves a family mystery.ÿ

Celebrating the role military families play in the success of America as well as their individual accomplishments, Military Kids Speak by former naval physicist and author Julie Rahm is a fascinating and inspired account of what it takes to be a military kid. It?s a team effort with a common goal; the mission is to describe what it means to be a part of a military family, what it takes to persevere when it comes to deployments, and living abroad. It?s also a candid account of the military lifestyle, and how special it is to be a child of a hero. In two parts and seventeen chapters with titles like ?Military Kids Speak about Deployments,? ?Military Kids Speak about Living Abroad,? and ?Military Kids Speak about Making Friends,? this engaging, conversational book begins with over two dozen essays written by today?s military kids. These young authors, aged ten to sixteen, discuss the rollercoaster ride of military life, it?s perks and privileges, as well as its hardships and heartaches, while the second half comprises twelve in-depth interviews with famous former military kids like Justice Leah Ward Sears, Newt Gingrich, Shaquille O?Neal, and Mark Hamill. Being a military kid is special?a childhood spent with the military is an adventure. This first volume of Military Kids Speak is a narrative of what American kids of servicemen and servicewomen sacrifice for their country day in and day out all over the world?and what they have to say about it.

'Absorbing... revealing and affecting. There are pleasures here, and lessons to be learnt, whatever colour you are' - The Sunday Times 'Michael Fuller is an extraordinary man with a remarkable and interesting story' - Helen Mirren A story about race, identity, belonging and displacement, "Kill the Black One First" is the memoir from Michael Fuller - Britain's first ever black Chief Constable, whose childhood in care and career in policing is not only a stark representation of race relations in the UK, but also a unique morality tale of how humanity deals with life's unfairness. Hoping to tackle injustice and create change from within, Michael joined the police force. There, he experienced racism and inequality, from colleagues shouting racist insults, to the Brixton Riots where 'Kill the black one first!' was yelled from the crowds. Determined, despite everything, not to turn and walk away, he rose through the ranks and made his way to the very top. "Kill the Black One First" is an unflinching account of a life in policing during a tumultuous period, and how one man set out, against the odds, to try and belong.
