Book Description

On the rack of romance.

And also in the oven of luuurve.

And possibly on my way to the bakery of pain.

And maybe even going to stop along the way to get a little cake at the cakeshop of agony.

Shut up, brain, shut up.

Georgia is in quite a predicament. Dave the Laugh has declared his love for her (at least she thinks he was talking about her), leaving her in a state of confusiosity. And then when she finally decides to give Masimo an ultimatum -- to be her one and only -- he tells her he needs to think about it.

To distract herself from her romantic woes, Georgia throws herself into Mac-Useless play rehearsals and planning a Viking wedding, and tries to avoid all thoughts of boy decoys, Italian-American dreamboats . . . and let’s not forget guitar-plucking Sex...

Having perfected her hypnotic technique and defeated her villainous uncle in Molly Moon Stops the World (HarperCollins, 2004), the protagonist is caught completely unaware when a stranger kidnaps her beloved pug, Petula.

Seeing Molly as an obstacle to his plans, he sets about kidnapping her at ages ten, six, and three, and as a baby. Now she must rescue her former selves and find a way to defeat Waqt, all while navigating some tricky time travel and...

Book Review
Fourteen-year-old Georgia Nicolson is back in British author Louise Rennison's irreverent, laugh-out-loud sequel to the Michael L. Printz Honor Book Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging. Written in diary form, these truly hilarious books chronicle the often minute-by-minute, very dramatic, and significant flip-flops of a teenager's psyche.

7:18 p.m.
My eyes are all swollen up like mice eyes from crying. Even my nose is swollen. It's not small at the best of times, but now it looks like I've got three cheeks. Marvelous. Thank you, God.

The March: A Novel
E.L. Doctorow
0375506713
September 20, 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
As the Civil War was moving toward its inevitable conclusion, General William Tecumseh Sherman marched 60,000 Union troops through Georgia and the Carolinas, leaving a 60-mile-wide trail of death, destruction, looting, thievery and chaos. In The March, E.L. Doctorow has put his unique stamp on these events by staying close to historical fact, naming real people and places and then imagining the rest, as he did in Ragtime.

Recently, the Civil War has been the subject of novels by Howard Bahr, Michael Shaara, Charles Frazier, and Robert Hicks, to name a few. Its perennial appeal is due not only to the fact that it was fought on our own soil, but also that it captures perfectly our long-time and ongoing ambivalence about race. Doctorow examines this question extensively, chronicling the dislocation of both southern whites...

From Publishers Weekly
"We didn't start out as Red Hats. We started out in the late '60s as mademoiselles, self-proclaimed creme de la creme of Atlanta's North Side High, Dike's High, Westminster and Lovett, full of ourselves and drunk with the power of our blooming sexuality and good looks," says Georgia Baker, the first-person narrator of Smith's (Queen Bee of the Mimosa Branch, etc.) cozy tribute to the South and womanhood in general. Still full of themselves but now older and wiser, Georgia, Teeny, Linda, Diane and SuSu meet once a month, wearing purple clothes and (what else?) red hats. When Diane discovers that her husband has a mistress, a condo and hidden funds, she seeks her friends' help to bring him down. Meanwhile, Georgia grapples with memories of her first love and the reality of her stale marriage, and Teeny reevaluates...

From School Library Journal
Grade 7-9–Georgia Nicolson's life is full of drama and trauma, and no one seems to understand–not Mutti, not Vati, not her best friend, Jas. Georgia's family is off for the uncharted reaches of Hamburger-a-gogo-land, and she is sure she will see her crush, Masimo, there. Her family will be visiting Memphis, but surely Manhattan isn't far? And it shouldn't be difficult to track down a family called Scarlotti in Manhattan, right? When the Nicholsons return home, Masimo unseen, Georgia is sad. She is truly heartbroken, however, when he comes back and seems more interested in Wet Lindsay than in Georgia herself. This is not a stand-alone title; some of the situations are better understood by knowing the vast and storied history that is Georgia's life–her hatred for Wet Lindsay, for example, and...

From Publishers Weekly
In his enthusiastic introduction, John Berendt, author of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, writes: "Authentic Southern food is not about pretension." Sure enough, this book by the proprietor of The Lady & Sons restaurant in Savannah, Ga., doesn't put on any airs. A great many recipes unabashedly list prepared foods among the ingredients. As an appetizer, Garlic Cheese Spread includes an eight-ounce package of cream cheese and an eight-ounce jar of Cheez-Whiz. Shrimp or Lobster Bisque contains, in addition to seafood, a can each of condensed tomato soup and condensed mushroom soup. The restaurant's most popular dessert is Gooey Butter Cakes, which starts with a box of Duncan Hines yellow cake mix. Still, some of the recipes attain a high level of regional authenticity: Georgia Cracker Salad is made with...

Praise for The Lady & Sons

“The recipes in this book are so wonderful, I almost ate the book!”
Fannie Flagg

“My meal of the year . . . Paula Deen’s home-style Southern menu at The Lady & Sons turned me into a ravenous beast unmindful of manners, cholesterol, North-South diplomacy, and the dropped jaws of my companions.”
Jerry Shriver, USA Today

“I tell Savannah-bound friends that if they want a short course in the meaning of Southern cooking–the flavors, the ambience, indeed the very heart of Southern cooking–they should drop in at The Lady & Sons.”
John Berendt

Paperback

From School Library Journal
Grade 7-9-Fans of this self-absorbed teen won't be disappointed in this latest installment of her journal, which contains more of the same humor and detailed observations of the minutiae of adolescent life found in the first three books. However, the teen's total "shallowosity" can be somewhat tiresome. By the fourth book, one might hope for growth of her character, along with her "nunga-nungas" (breasts). Plot-wise, this book picks up where the last one left off. Georgia is still in love with Robbie, the SG (sex god), but is increasingly confused by her feelings for Dave-the-Laugh. Temporary distractions include her cat Angus impregnating a feline across the road, a class trip to Paris, and being made captain of the hockey team. But-"sadnosity"-at novel's end, the SG is off to Kiwi-a-gogo land (New Zealand)...

Book Review
John Berendt's Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil has been heralded as a "lyrical work of nonfiction," and the book's extremely graceful prose depictions of some of Savannah, Georgia's most colorful eccentrics--remarkable characters who could have once prospered in a William Faulkner novel or Eudora Welty short story--were certainly a critical factor in its tremendous success. (One resident into whose orbit Berendt fell, the Lady Chablis, went on to become a minor celebrity in her own right.) But equally important was Berendt's depiction of Savannah socialite Jim Williams as he stands trial for the murder of Danny Hansford, a moody, violence-prone hustler--and sometime companion to Williams--characterized by locals as a "walking streak of sex." So feel free to call it a "true crime classic" without a trace of shame. ...

Book Description

A man with a painful past. A child with a doubtful future. And a shared journey toward healing for both their hearts.

It begins on the shaded town square in a sleepy Southern town. A spirited seven-year-old has a brisk business at her lemonade stand. Her latest customer, a bearded stranger, drains his cup and heads to his car, his mind on a boat he's restoring at a nearby lake. But the little girl's pretty yellow dress can't quite hide the ugly scar on her chest. The stranger understands more about it than he wants to admit. And the beat-up bread truck careening around the corner with its radio blaring is about to change the trajectory of both their lives.

Before it's over, they'll both know there are painful reasons why crickets cry...and that miracles lurk around unexpected corners.

From Booklist
Jimmy, a mildly retarded child, sees "Watchers," or angels, and in his innocence, he's very nearly an angel himself. His parents wonder if he'll ever be able to take care of himself and gently move him toward independence. He responds admirably. In fact, it's Jimmy's highly developed sense of responsibility that eventually gets him in trouble, but his angels are there, and whatever happens, apparently, is God's will. For some readers, Jimmy will seem sentimental. For others, it will summon gratifying tears. John Mort

Book Description

She's got the rock, so when does happily ever after kick in?

At long last, Ashley Stockingdale--patent attorney, fasionista, and homeowner--can finally add "fiancee" to her spirited resume. That means the next four months will be a dizzying and decadent waltz through aisles of Vera Wang, Kenneth Cole, Sheridan sheets, Kate Spade place settings, and Oneida flatware. Well...maybe not.

For starters, the HR department has hired Ashley's ex-boyfriend (yep, the one who ran off to India with that other woman) as the new director of software. And now her fiance is starting to sound crazy--something about moving across country, to Philadelphia of all places. Worst of all, right before her eyes, Scarlett-I-need-some-Prozac O'Hara is hijacking her wedding plans!

Life for our heroine is spinning from out...

Book Review
She has a precocious 3-year-old sister who tends to leave wet nappies at the foot of her bed, an insane cat who is prone to leg-shredding "Call of the Wild" episodes, and embarrassing parents who make her want to escape to Stonehenge and dance with the Druids. No wonder 14-year-old Georgia Nicolson laments, "Honestly, what is the point?" A Bridget Jones for the younger set, Georgia records the momentous events of her life--and they are all momentous--in her diary, which serves as a truly hilarious account of what it means to be a modern girl on the cusp of womanhood. No matter that her particular story takes place in England, the account of her experiences rings true across the ocean (and besides, "Georgia's Glossary" swiftly eradicates any language barriers).

The author, Louise Rennison, is a British comedy writer and...

Gone with the Wind

Paperback

Book Review
Sometimes only remembered for the epic motion picture and "Frankly ... I don't give a damn," Gone with the Wind was initially a compelling and entertaining novel. It was the sweeping story of tangled passions and the rare courage of a group of people in Atlanta during the time of Civil War that brought those cinematic scenes to life. The reason the movie became so popular was the strength of its characters--Scarlett O'Hara, Rhett Butler, and Ashley Wilkes--all created here by the deft hand of Margaret Mitchell, in this, her first novel. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

This is beyond a doubt one of the most remarkable first novels produced by an American writer. It is also one of the best. --This text...

From Publishers Weekly
Many traditional Southern foods—pulled-pork barbecue, crab cakes, fried oyster po' boys, to name a few—violate traditional Jewish dietary laws, which forbid the consumption of pork and shellfish. What's a Southern Jew to do? Anthropological historian Ferris (UNC–Chapel Hill) answers that question in a gustatory tour of the Jewish South. She uncovers many dishes that blend Jewish and Southern foodways (recipes included for such tasties as Temple Israel Brisket and Cornmeal-Fried Fish Fillets with Sephardic Vinagre Sauce). Ferris sees food as a symbol that encompasses the problem of how Jews live in a region dominated by Christians: "The most tangible way to understand Jewish history and culture in the South is at the dinner table." Cynics will wonder if a Jewish kugel (noodle casserole) prepared...
