Description : From the New York Times bestselling author of the Shatter Me series comes a powerful, heartrending contemporary YA novel about fear, first love, and the devastating impact of prejudice It’s 2002, a year after 9/11, and Shirin has just started at yet another new high school. It’s an extremely turbulent time politically, but especially so for a sixteen-year-old Muslim girl who’s tired of being stereotyped. Shirin is never surprised by how horrible people can be. She’s tired of the rude stares, the degrading comments - even the physical violence she endures as a result of her race, her religion, and the hijab she wears every day. Shirin drowns her frustrations in music and spends her afternoons break-dancing with her brother. But then she meets Ocean James. He’s the first person in forever who really seems to want to get to know her. It terrifies her -they seem to come from two irreconcilable worlds - and Shirin has had her guard up against the world for so long that she’s not sure she’ll ever be able to let it down.

Description : "...one of the most beautiful books I have ever seen...If there is one book of poetry you purchase in your lifetime, The Shades of Missing You should be the one … and I would recommend purchasing the paperback." –Aaron C. Yeagle, Book Review Universe "Vironika's poetry gently sweeps over your consciousness in a way that is both surprising and enlightening. This collection echoes with the longing we all feel, whether for spiritual connection with oneself or for a faded romance. Her work has lasting power: Many of her lines have stayed with me long after I finished the poem." –David Silverberg, artistic director of Toronto Poetry Slam, author of As Close to the Edge Without Going Over (ChiZine) "Vironika’s poems take us on a voyage through the landscape of the human mind. She is a writer with the rare ability to capture the nuances of thought, unflinchingly revealing her own life while reflecting back to us our own nature - full of wisdom, contradiction, longing and love." –Andrea Thompson, award-winning writer, spoken word artist, activist & educator "...a delicate balance between unrequited love, passion, and loss. Vironika Tugaleva has an artful style of spilling blood all over the pages with the stroke of her pen. Some of the poems brought a smile to my face from my own memories. Other poems made me well up with emotion from the pain of loss, the lonely nights, and a heartache that never left. This book is a brave representation of the slow walk through healing and the emotions that come with every step." –Angela Bertoli, author of Moonlit Mystics FROM THE INTRODUCTION: “For years, I was having dreams about my first love. He would smile at me, forgive me, be my friend. I would wake up longing for closure. I figured the dreams would fade over time, but almost twelve years later, they became stronger. Instead of friendship and forgiveness, the dreams filled with passion. I would wake up yearning for the magnets that had pulsed so powerfully within me all those years ago. I decided to write a poem every time I missed him. So, I did. I expected it to help. I didn’t expect it to have as much of an impact as it did. If there is anything I can hope to inspire in readers of this collection, it is this: if something hurts, make art from it. You never know where it might lead you.” –Vironika Tugaleva

Description : The transformative new book by the authors of the New York Times bestseller The Tools (and the resident shrinks on Goop) reveals how to deepen your emotional and spiritual experience and realize your full potential. In The Tools, Barry Michels and Phil Stutz revolutionized the world of personal growth and self-actualization by offering doable, dynamic actions that transformed challenges into opportunities for change. Now, in Coming Alive, they provide four vital tools for tapping into the Life Force that resides within each of us—a wellspring of positive energy that is the source of creativity, renewal, confidence, and engagement. The first step in gaining mastery over one’s life is identifying the enemy within, which Michels and Stutz have named Part X. This formidable adversary is a shape-shifter—it may be the voice in your head that is a torrent of negativity, persuading you of the futility of finding love, starting a business, or pursuing a creative passion; it may sap you of energy, convincing you that your inner resources are limited; it may take the form of outside forces that conspire against you. In whatever guise it appears, Part X aims to derail your progress, keep you small and stuck, and defeat hope. The tools in Coming Alive help you connect to the Life Force and harness the energy and will to combat Part X. These are tools of ascendance—they activate your aspirational self; they spark creativity and resilience; they help you to transcend the mire of negative thoughts and circumstances and align with a powerful ally that unites us in our common desire to live lives of meaning and engagement. Drawing insights from their decades of psychotherapeutic practice, their lived experience, and their moving and generous understanding of our interconnectedness, Michels and Stutz have created a paradigm-shifting guide to achieving optimal mental health and spiritual well-being. Advance praise for Coming Alive “There is something indescribably beautiful about living life in integrity. The tools Barry and Phil teach in Coming Alive gave me the courage and clarity to align myself with the truth—no matter how hard or painful it seemed at the time.”—Gwyneth Paltrow “What a gift! A riveting exploration of four (bone-chillingly relatable) modern ailments and their thrillingly practical solutions . . . Singular in its approach and deeply spiritual in its concerns, Coming Alive is a book I’ll be pressing on friends and foes alike.”—Maria Semple, author of Where’d You Go, Bernadette and Today Will Be Different “‘Practical’ and ‘effective’ are words psychology has always been afraid to embrace. But after working with Barry and Phil for years, I can tell you that they deliver spiritual and psychological transformation. The results, at least for me, have been life changing.”—Adam McKay, Academy Award–winning writer, director, and producer “When I was going through the most difficult years of my life, I was able to use this method to find my strength. We all have the ability to save ourselves, yet we need guidance when we are lost. In Coming Alive you can find the road map to enlightenment.”—Drew Barrymore “Part X is another way of describing the addict mind, the obsessive mind, the Jungian shadow, or any fear- or anger-based thought or action. It’s been Phil and Barry’s collective life work to deconstruct Part X and explain it to the rest of us mortals so that we can work with it and not be a slave to it.”—Hank Azaria
