It Happens All The Time by Amy Hatvany. I want to rewind the clock, take back the night when the world shattered. I want to erase everything that went wrong. Amber Bryant and Tyler Hicks have been best friends since they were teenagers—trusting and depending on each other through some of the darkest periods of their young lives. And while Amber has always felt that their relationship is strictly platonic, Tyler has long harbored the secret desire that they might one day become more than friends. Returning home for the summer after her college graduation, Amber begins spending more time with Tyler than she has in years. Despite the fact that Amber is engaged to her college sweetheart, a flirtation begins to grow between them. One night, fueled by alcohol and concerns about whether she’s getting married too young, Amber kisses Tyler. What happens next will change them forever. 

Game Change – the life and death of Steve Montador and the future of hockey by Ken Dryden is his most powerful and important book yet that tells the riveting story of one player’s life, examines the intersection between science and sport, and expertly documents the progression of the game of hockey—where it began, how it got to where it is, where it can go from here and, just as exciting to play and watch, how it can get there. 

 Combining science and folklore for health, this book features practical cures, medicinal herbs, healing foods, green housecleaning, sustainable cosmetics, alternative therapies, and lifestyle changes--hundreds of ways to boost your health naturally. Created with a nationally recognized advisory board of medical professionals and leading figures in natural healing fields, National Geographic Complete Guide to Natural Home Remedies covers topics ranging from the familiar to the new and promising: from mint tea for a stomach-ache to onion juice for a bee sting, from using baking soda as a kitchen cleanser to finding quiet in a crowded world, from adding turmeric to fight arthritis to practicing aromatherapy at home. Sections on healing traditions and best life practices from around the world offer reader’s all-around guidance on the path to optimal health. Photographs, recipes, cautions, and quick tips on page after page make this both a handy look-up reference and a fascinating browse to keep close at hand for years to come.
