During his second semester at college, Kurt Snyder became convinced that he was about to discover a fabulously important mathematical principle, spending hours lost in daydreams about numbers and symbols. In time, his thoughts took a darker turn, and he became preoccupied with the idea that cars were following him, or that strangers wanted to harm him. Kurt's mind had been hijacked by schizophrenia, a severe mental disorder that typically strikes during the late teen or young adult years. In Me, Myself, and Them, Kurt, now an adult, looks back from the vantage point of recovery and eloquently describes the debilitating changes in thoughts and perceptions that took hold of his life during his teens and twenties. As a memoir, this book is remarkable for its unvarnished look at the slow and difficult process of coming back from severe mental illness. Yet Kurt's memoir is only half the story. With the help of psychiatrist Raquel E. Gur, M.D., Ph.D., and veteran science writer Linda Wasmer Andrews, Kurt paints the big picture for others affected by adolescent schizophrenia. Drawing on the latest scientific and medical evidence, he explains how to recognize warning signs, where to find help, and what treatments have proved effective. Kurt also offers practical advice on topics of particular interest to young people, such as suggestions on managing the illness at home, school, and work, and in relationships with family and friends. Part of the Adolescent Mental Health Initiative series of books written specifically for teens and young adults, My, Myself, and Them offers hope to young people who are struggling with schizophrenia, helping them to understand and manage the challenges of this illness and go on to lead healthy lives.

His friends are used to his strict routines, like ironing his socks and lighting his fireplace every Sunday (even in the summer). His forlorn mother puts up with his strange “no touching” antics, even though all she wants is a hug from her son. Really, the only problem is the four monsters he has for roommates. This ragtag bunch run his life, determined to create chaos in his orderly world. Then Rebecca, Denis’s enigmatic ex-girlfriend from his former life, returns to town. Shocked to meet the new Denis—a broken man, unable to manage even the most basic social interactions—she becomes fixated on bringing back the funny, charismatic man she once loved. As Denis begins to emerge from his sheltered existence and rediscover the person he used to be, the monsters declare all-out war. Denis is finally forced to confront the demons that share his house, and his head. By turns heartbreaking and heartwarming, Me, Myself and Them deftly explores mental illness with compassion and in entirely original terms. With wit and charm, Dan Mooney offers a wholly new perspective on the effects of grief and the power of human connection.

Cleo Patricia Jones is not your typical young lady. Some might say that her ample supply of self-love is borderline obnoxious, but she's not one to be bothered by that. She is determined to make something of herself, but she can't seem to get away from loathing the job she has at the local grocery store, where she works in the hours off from her schedule of college courses. Cleo is not the kind of girl to down herself over a few extra pounds; she is proud of her curvy body and relishes in the attention she receives from it. She has dozens of guys at her beck and call, but she comes to find that she is still lonely. In this modern self-discovery novel, Cleo comes to terms with her past and her present in order to figure out what she is going to do in the future.

Drowning, Rhyme by Rhyme brings to life a Harlem woman's worst nightmare: that of her older sister and that of her estranged husband, both fixed on self-pity and vengeance and committing the most ruthless of all crimes. It's the story of a young woman's all too hate consuming all too non-forgiving of a mother who neglected her, and a father who molested her. The story of how she conceived two children by her father: a son she was forced to give up and a daughter she resorts to abuse. It's the tale of a young man's hate-driven malice, and disgust for a mother who molested him and a father who deserted him, and how this hatred turned to out of control rage. Drowning, Rhyme by Rhyme is a novel unraveled through poetry that lays bare a surprising world of sex, treason and, murder.
