It's late summer 1793, and the streets of Philadelphia are abuzz with mosquitoes and rumors of fever. Down near the docks, many have taken ill, and the fatalities are mounting. Now they include Polly, the serving girl at the Cook Coffeehouse. But fourteen-year-old Mattie Cook doesn't get a moment to mourn the passing of her childhood playmate. New customers have overrun her family's coffee shop, located far from the mosquito-infested river, and Mattie's concerns of fever are all but overshadowed by dreams of growing her family's small business into a thriving enterprise. But when the fever begins to strike closer to home, Mattie's struggle to build a new life must give way to a new fight-the fight to stay alive.

<p><b>A National Book Award Finalist!</b></p><p>In kindergarten, Jarrett Krosoczka's teacher asks him to draw his family, with a mommy and a daddy. But Jarrett's family is much more complicated than that. His mom is an addict, in and out of rehab, and in and out of Jarrett's life. His father is a mystery -- Jarrett doesn't know where to find him, or even what his name is. Jarrett lives with his grandparents -- two very loud, very loving, very opinionated people who had thought they were through with raising children until Jarrett came along.</p><p>Jarrett goes through his childhood trying to make his non-normal life as normal as possible, finding a way to express himself through drawing even as so little is being said to him about what's going on. Only as a teenager can Jarrett begin to piece together the truth of his family, reckoning with his mother and tracking down his father. </p><p><i>Hey, Kiddo</i> is a profoundly important memoir about growing up in a family grappling with addiction, and finding the art that helps you survive.</p>

<b>The story that inspired the major motion picture <i>Beautiful Boy</i> featuring Steve Carell and Timoth茅e Chalamet<i>.</i></b><br /> <br /><b>This <i>New York Times </i>bestselling memoir of a young man鈥檚 addiction to methamphetamine tells a raw, harrowing, and ultimately hopeful tale of the road from relapse to recovery.</b><br /><br />Nic Sheff was drunk for the first time at age eleven. In the years that followed, he would regularly smoke pot, do cocaine and Ecstasy, and develop addictions to crystal meth and heroin. Even so, he felt like he would always be able to quit and put his life together whenever he needed to. It took a violent relapse one summer in California to convince him otherwise. In a voice that is raw and honest, Nic spares no detail in telling us the compelling, heartbreaking, and true story of his relapse and the road to recovery. As we watch Nic plunge into the mental and physical depths of drug addiction, he paints a picture for us of a person at odds with his past, with his family, with his substances, and with himself. It's a harrowing portrait鈥攂ut not one without hope.

<b>Readers' Favorite International Contest: Silver Medal in Young Adult Thriller聽</b><br />聽<br />"A powerful, original examination of the聽nature of memory and the effects of childhood abuse that's framed as a suspense tale. Deeply felt and convincing." --聽<b>Kirkus Reviews</b><br />聽<br />Hunter needs to remember. Jazz needs to forget. They need each other to heal in this teen thriller of survivor love.聽<br /><br />Hunter's past is a mystery to him, erased by a doctor at the direction of his father. But memories of the secret trauma begin to surface when Hunter sees other people's memories--visions invading his mind with stories of abuse, teen self-mutilation, rape, and forbidden sex.聽<br /><br />His best friend Jazz has dark and disturbing memories of her own that she hides behind her sass and wit. Hunter discovers he can rescue the victims, even though he risks adding their suffering to his own.聽<br /><br />Hunter and Jazz kiss each other's scars and form a bond of empathy no two teens should ever need.聽<br /><br />This book contains scenes of sexual abuse, self-mutilation, and suicide. It should not be read by teens who wish to be shielded from such harsh realities their peers may be enduring alone. Nor by anyone who desires to remain in the dark despite being in a position to shine light. However, those who suffer in private or wish to help those who do--please read this story and share its contents.聽<br /><br />Many parts of this book are difficult to read and were very difficult to write. But there is much truth in these pages, some profoundly ugly and some beautiful in its resilience. As one character says, "I have to believe I can still love and be loved. We can't stay broken forever."聽<br /><br />And they shouldn't be unknown forever. People need to feel the pain of others.
