When Josie Jensen, an awkward 13-year-old musical prodigy crashes headlong into new-comer Samuel Yazzie, an 18-year-old Navajo boy full of anger and confusion, an unlikely friendship blooms.

Upon graduation, Samuel abandons the sleepy, small town in search of a future and a life, leaving his young mentor behind. Many years go by and Samuel returns, finding his old friend in need of the very things she offered him years before. Their roles reversed, Samuel teaches Josie about life, love, and letting go.

Running That Doesn't Suck: How to Love Running (Even If You Think You Hate It) by Lisa Jhung
This book was published 2 years ago by Running Press Adult and takes approximately 8.0 hours to read.
We've all side-eyed the chipper runners jogging by at 6 a.m. in their short-shorts and sports bras and felt a little envious, despite our simmering resentment. How do they get out there and do it every morning? How did they become Runners? Though running is theoretically one of the most natural sports for humans, the general responses to running tend to be, "It's hard. It sucks. I wish I could do it." For those who wish they liked running (but actually hate it), Lisa Jhung's Running That Doesn't Suck has arrived. In this pithy, humorous, and down-to-earth guide, Jhung gets back to basics, breaking down the barriers for aspiring runners. She encourages readers to "embrace the suckiness" and gives advice on how to get started-and how to keep going. (Hint: You don't have to run at 6 a.m. and you definitely don't have to wear short-shorts.) Jhung also offers body maintenance tips, nutritional advice, and running etiquette pointers. Smartly organized with chapters that don't necessarily need to be read in order, full of sage advice garnered from Jhung's two decades of writing about running, and including insights from professional runners, sports psychologists, coaches, physical therapists and more, this book has all the meat an aspiring runner needs to get hooked on the sport.
Everything Trump Touches Dies: A Republican Strategist Gets Real About the Worst President Ever by Rick Wilson
Category: United States
This book was published 2 years ago by Free Press and takes approximately 12.3 hours to read.
#1 New York Times bestseller! A respected, long-time Republican strategist, ad-maker, and contributor for The Daily Beast skewers the disease that is destroying the conservative movement and burning down the GOP: Trumpism. Includes an all-new chapter analyzing Trump’s impact on the 2018 elections. In the #1 New York Times bestselling Everything Trump Touches Dies, political campaign strategist and commentator Rick Wilson delivers “a searingly honest, bitingly funny, comprehensive answer to the question we find ourselves asking most mornings: ‘What the hell is going on?’ (Chicago Tribune). The Guardian hails Everything Trump Touches Dies, saying it gives, “more unvarnished truths about Donald Trump than anyone else in the American political establishment has offered. Wilson never holds back.” Rick mercilessly exposes the damage Trump has done to the country, to the Republican Party, and to the conservative movement that has abandoned its principles for the worst President in American history. Wilson unblinkingly dismantles Trump’s deceptions and the illusions to which his supporters cling, shedding light on the guilty parties who empower and enable Trump in Washington and in the media. He calls out the race-war dead-enders who hitched a ride with Trump, the alt-right basement dwellers who worship him, and the social conservatives who looked the other way. Publishers Weekly calls it, “a scathing, profane, unflinching, and laugh-out-loud funny rebuke of Donald Trump and his presidency.” No left-winger, Wilson is a lifelong conservative who delivers his withering critique of Trump from the right. A leader of the Never Trump movement, he warned from the start that Trump would destroy the lives and reputations of everyone in his orbit, and Everything Trump Touches Dies is a deft chronicle the tragicomic political story of our time. From the early campaign days through the shock of election night, to the inconceivable train-wreck of Trump’s first year. Rick Wilson provides not only an insightful analysis of the Trump administration, but also an optimistic path forward for the GOP, the conservative movement, and the country. “Hilarious, smartly written, and usually spot-on” (Kirkus Reviews), Everything Trump Touches Dies is perfect for those on either side of the aisle who need a dose of unvarnished reality, a good laugh, a strong cocktail, and a return to sanity in American politics.
