13. The Gift of an Ordinary Day A Mother's Memoir - Katrina Kenison

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 14.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Hayat Shah is a young American in love for the first time. His normal life of school, baseball, and video games had previously been distinguished only by his Pakistani heritage and by the frequent chill between his parents, who fight over things he is too young to understand. Then Mina arrives, and everything changes.

Mina is Hayat's mother's oldest friend from Pakistan. She is independent, beautiful and intelligent, and arrives on the Shah's doorstep when her disastrous marriage in Pakistan disintegrates. Even Hayat's skeptical father can't deny the liveliness and happiness that accompanies Mina into their home. Her deep spirituality brings the family's Muslim faith to life in a way that resonates with Hayat as nothing has before. Studying the Quran by Mina's side and basking in the glow of her attention, he feels an entirely new purpose mingled with a growing infatuation for his teacher.

When Mina meets and begins dating a man, Hayat is confused by his feelings of betrayal. His growing passions, both spiritual and romantic, force him to question all that he has come to believe is true. Just as Mina finds happiness, Hayat is compelled to act -- with devastating consequences for all those he loves most.

American Dervish is a brilliantly written, nuanced, and emotionally forceful look inside the interplay of religion and modern life. Ayad Akhtar was raised in the Midwest himself, and through Hayat Shah he shows readers vividly the powerful forces at work on young men and women growing up Muslim in America. This is an intimate, personal first novel that will stay with readers long after they turn the last page.

17. The Boy from Tacarigua - Garth Lyder

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 17.50  - Click book title for availability and further details

Born in 1914 in Trinidad, West Indies, Garth Lyder, "The Boy from Tacarigua" (a village in Trinidad) gives a lively and very personal account of his growing up in a Methodist household in a British West Indian colony. As a young teenager, he falls in love with flying aeroplanes, and over the many years of his long life, he follows his dream of becoming a pilot. In Garth's case, it is not a straight line, but rather takes him to work in an airplane factory in Bristol, then to the RAF where he becomes a pilot, is shot down and gets awarded the DFC while in a German prison camp, then through the length and breadth of Africa where he takes on passengers as a private pilot, and finally back to his native Trinidad where he serves as a commercial pilot in the newly-founded national airline, BWIA. A must-read for everybody interested in the Second World War, the RAF, or just to read about "long-time Trinidad". Garth Lyder just celebrated his 96th birthday and lives in London.

19. The Pebble and the Avalanche How Taking Things Apart Creates Revolutions (Large Print 16pt) - Moshe Yudkowsky

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 29.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

This book explains how to understand, create, and apply revolutions in business and technology. This book provides ideas, methods, and examples and shows you how to use them to create useful and exciting innovations. ''Taking things apart creates revolutions'' is the simple, one-line answer, but the more I looked into this relatively simple idea the more rich, the more interesting, and the more fun it became. I hope you'll enjoy the rest of this book as I guide you through the details. The main focus of the book is on business and technology. The ideas in this book apply across a wide range of activities; I've included discussions about government and economics, but have left out any mention of medicine, health care, or religion.
