What would you give for an afternoon in your grandmother’s kitchen?
Leaning over the countertop, you watched as she added the flour―just a little at a time―to the bowl of her old, yellow Sunbeam stand mixer. To her, cooking may have been as second nature as setting the table. To you, it seemed almost like magic―the way she skillfully put things together to create the mouthwatering meals and one-of-a-kind desserts you enjoyed at her table.
Likely, it’s her culinary delights that have set the bar for everything you’ve eaten since. And let’s face it, her pan fried pork chops and home-baked banana bread make anyone else’s versions pale in comparison. If you find yourself wishing for just a little more time in your grandmother’s kitchen―complete with her stories and the memories of the comforting favorites she lovingly made for you―you’re sure to embrace this celebration of grandmother’s cooking. She’d be proud!

The media-driven world places enormous pressure on people to conform to its secular point of view—and young people are especially susceptible to this ploy. Writing to a student audience, authors Mike and Daniel Blackaby (the grandsons of Experiencing God author Henry Blackaby) explain how Christians typically respond to this pressure in one of three ways, assigning names for each group:
“Cave-Ins” are Christians who accept the world’s values and compromise their faith or abandon it altogether. “Cave-Dwellers” are believers who fear the world and seek to insulate themselves from it and its influence as much as possible. “Colliders” are the Christians who remain true to their faith yet effectively engage the world and are used by God to change peoples’ lives.
When Worlds Collide is the Blackabys’ case for becoming a Collider. In chapters packed with story-based devotional thoughts, plenty of humor, and easy steps for application, they prove it’s possible to live an authentic Christian life that meets the world head-on without spiritual compromise.

In Pledged, Alexandra Robbins followed four college girls to produce a riveting narrative that read like fiction. Now, in The Overachievers, Robbins uses the same captivating style to explore how our high-stakes educational culture has spiraled out of control. During the year of her ten-year reunion, Robbins goes back to her high school, where she follows heart-tuggingly likeable students including “AP” Frank, who grapples with horrifying parental pressure to succeed.
Robbins tackles teen issues such as intense stress, the student and teacher cheating epidemic, sports rage, parental guilt, the black market for study drugs, and a college admissions process so cutthroat that students are driven to suicide and depression because of a B.
With a compelling mix of fast-paced narrative and fascinating investigative journalism, The Overachievers aims both to calm the admissions frenzy and to expose its escalating danger. Buy this book for $2.99 today.

In this exquisitely rendered memoir set on the high plains of Texas, Pulitzer Prize winner Gail Caldwell transforms into art what it is like to come of age in a particular time and place.
A Strong West Wind begins in the 1950s in the wilds of the Texas Panhandle. Its story belongs to a girl who grew up surrounded by dust storms and cattle ranches and summer lightning, who took refuge from the vastness of the land and the ever-present wind by retreating into books.
A Strong West Wind is a memoir of culture and history–of fathers and daughters, of two world wars and the passionate rebellions of the sixties. But it is also about the mythology of place and the evolution of a sensibility: about how literature can shape and even anticipate a life.
