Description : In 2007, Melanie Lentz was one of the youngest female Secret Service agents ever hired. At twenty-two, she had no prior military or law enforcement experience, much less life experience. But she sold herself on a platform of trainability. She could be taught the skills needed to be a great agent, and her work ethic and stubbornness got her through the grueling months of training. Agent Innocent: How the Secret Service Changed My Life chronicles Melanie's journey into womanhood by paralleling her personal and professional life. While her experiences and life lessons were acquired via unconventional and unique ways, her story proves remarkably relatable. Behind the sunglasses, earpiece, badge, and ponytail was a woman struggling to balance a demanding occupation and a neglected personal life. For years she hid behind her respected reputation at work, convincing those around her that she was okay when she wasn't. After being assigned to Former First Lady Nancy Reagan's protection detail in Los Angeles, Melanie's life began to unravel, ultimately leading to her resignation in July 2016 shortly after Mrs. Reagan's death. With vulnerability and raw emotion, Melanie tells her story of divorce, depression, dysfunction, self-esteem, humility, self-awareness, and more. Melanie failed to protect herself, but she was exposed to the concept of protection every day at work. Little did she know the Secret Service was covertly giving her the life experience she needed to help her start over and become a better woman.

Description : CHICAGO TRIBUNE BESTSELLER • For readers of Orange Is the New Black and The Glass Castle, a riveting memoir about a lifelong secret and a girl finding strength in the most unlikely place In 1979, Liz Pryor is a seventeen-year-old girl from a good family in the wealthy Chicago suburbs. Halfway through her senior year of high school, she discovers that she is pregnant—a fact her parents are determined to keep a secret from her friends, siblings, and community forever. One snowy January day, after driving across three states, her mother drops her off at what Liz thinks is a Catholic home for unwed mothers—but which is, in truth, a locked government-run facility for delinquent and impoverished pregnant teenage girls. In the cement-block residence, Liz is alone and terrified, a fish out of water—a girl from a privileged, sheltered background living amid tough, street-savvy girls who come from the foster care system or juvenile detention. But over the next six months, isolated and in involuntary hiding from everyone she knows, Liz develops a surprising bond with the other girls and begins to question everything she once held true. Told with tenderness, humor, and an open heart, Look at You Now is a deeply moving story about the most vulnerable moments in our lives—and how a willingness to trust ourselves can permanently change who we are and how we see the world. Praise for Look at You Now “A funny, tender and brave coming-of-age tale.”—People “A poignant, often funny reminder that we learn who we are when we’re at our most challenged.”—Good Housekeeping “Searingly honest.”—Family Circle “Readers will swiftly be drawn into the author’s compassionate retelling of her teen pregnancy—her fear, shame, regret, joy, and even her forgiveness of her parents for sending her away. This coming-of-age memoir is authentic and unforgettable.”—Publishers Weekly “[Liz] Pryor’s refusal to bury the truth of her experiences is the greatest strength of her book. Her honesty about a youthful error and desire to let that honesty define the rest of her life are both uplifting and inspiring. An unsentimental yet moving coming-of-age memoir.”—Kirkus Reviews “Pryor has vivid memories of her time in the facility, and her straightforward, unvarnished narrative, written as if by her seventeen-year-old self, rings true. Her story is well worth sharing.”—Booklist “I started reading this book thinking it was a compelling, honest, sometimes funny, sometimes poignant look at the world of teenage pregnancy, and knowing it would offer an inside look at the places where girls used to be hidden away until their babies came. I finished it damp-eyed and understanding that Look at You Now is much more than that. It is a story about how family dynamics work. It is about how wrenching it is to give away something born of your flesh, even if you know it’s the right decision. It’s about how much we can learn from people very much different from us. Most of all, it is a subtle, graceful story about how sometimes the worst things in our lives work best to shape our characters into something shining and true, something that will serve us for the rest of our lives.”—Elizabeth Berg, author of The Dream Lover “Liz Pryor’s story is shocking, moving, riveting, and, ultimately, inspiring. She writes like a natural, can balance humor and sorrow perfectly, and in Look at You Now, has written a pitch-perfect memoir.”—Darin Strauss, author of Half a Life
