Dragonflies in the cowburbs by Donelle N Dreese( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Francesca Butler (?Fresca?) is a 17-year-old girl who lives in what she calls the?cowburbs.? Not quite the country and not quite the suburbs, the cowburbs offer Fresca adventure and room to grow, but also confusion and loneliness. The story is told from the point of view of a smart and sometimes sarcastic teenage girl who struggles to find happiness after the tragic death of her father, the mysterious disappearance of her friend Laurel Dee, and her boyfriend's battle with Internet Addiction Disorder. Fresca loses a friend who dies from inhaling fumes from an aerosol can, and develops a close bond with her best friend, Veronica, who eases her through a case of?textitis? from too much texting. Veronica becomes an inspiring role model for Fresca when she shaves off all of her hair to protest the importance placed on physical attractiveness in their high school. Fresca also depicts a close relationship with her mother, whose?seventh sense? allows her to understand Fresca in intimate ways, but this relationship is challenged when her mother acquires a new boyfriend who doesn't seem to like Fresca, or teenagers in general. With the help of her mom, her friends, and a sense of humor, Fresca discovers that love and happiness are not only possible, but waiting for her amidst a flock of dragonflies

The Journals of Lt. Kendall Everly: A Story of the American Civil War: is the second book in S. Thomas Summers' Civil War series.

Yet, the war and its horrors envelope him, transform him into a man he no longer knows or recognizes

Still rising from ashes by Charlene Swinton-Mattox( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Charlene grew up poverty-stricken in the Bronx, New York. As a child, she bore witness to the streets decimating her family. Her mother's relationships with men turned abusive as her crack cocaine addiction grew. Her brothers traded their innocence for lives of crime, and church dances with child hood friends and neighborhood sweet hearts became nightclub shootings with gang bangers and bad boys. Anger burned in Charlene so blindingly, it led her to the same dark streets that sparked her rage in the first place. There would be much more pain before she'd find her way again, but the fire of faith burns brighter than that of anger. Soon, the poverty from whence Charlene came would be but ashes. Then, the real work would begin."--
Inversed by Jason Holt( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In these poems, Jason Holt explores unusual word patterns that can help thoughts and feelings break free from the structures of habit and convention. Word-work and play come together here--in an attempt to resolve, by expressing them, the inevitable conflicts of raw experience

Notes on the road to now by Paul Bellerive( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Notes on the Road to Now": is composed of sixty-six related poems (twenty have appeared in journals, reviews, and anthologies), which provide a fascinating look at the progression from the cocksureness of youth to the reasoned inquiry of experienced maturity. In addition, the poems create a background story of a long-term relationship that accepts, endures, and to some degree overcomes the challenges that love and time offer. Through a variety of people, places, and experiences Notes on the Road to Now leads the narrator (and ideally the reader as well) on a journey from?I was so much older then? to?I'm younger than that now.?
Rocks Full of Sky by Stephen Lefebure( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rocks Full of Sky": is a collection of incantatory poems exploring landscape, wildness, and the human spirit. Schooled in traditional forms of rhyme and meter, Stephen Lefebure writes poetry wide open to the vastness of the American Southwest, and to metaphysical suggestion, the tides of time, and the elusive image of eternity as well. The spell these poems cast persists far beyond the moment of their reading
My Mind Is Made of Crumbs by Joan Cannon( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The poems in this collection were written over a period of nearly half a century. They look backward, observe the recent past and the present, and include subjects that have little reference to history and chronology because they apply to all of life.?Then,??Now,? and?Whenever ...? offer verbal pictures, autobiography, a bit of philosophy, and a little humor in varied forms
Elvis Presley's hips & Mick Jagger's lips by Susana H Case( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Skating in Concord by Jean LeBlanc( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These poems take readers into the world of Henry David Thoreau and his circle of acquaintances: Ralph Waldo Emerson, Margaret Fuller, Louisa May Alcott. These poems also bring Thoreau into the present, imagining him as a living entity in our lives--and with him comes a renewed appreciation for the beauty of the world around us, a world in which astonishment animates every moment. To read these poems is to be?nose-deep in life, too busy for the leaving of it.?
Queen of the platform by Laura Madeline Wiseman( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These poems are based on the life of Laura Madeline Wiseman's great-great-great-grandmother, the nineteenth century lecturer, suffragist, and poet, Matilda Fletcher Wiseman (1842-1909) and the men in her life: her brother, George W. Felts (1843-1921), a civil war solider who was later charged with murder, her first husband, John A. Fletcher (1837-1875), a school teacher and a lawyer, and her second husband, William Albert Wiseman (1850-1911), a minister who became her agent. Like her seven brothers who served in the Civil War, Matilda chose the public sphere. After the death of her only child, Matilda joined the lecture circuit. She spoke to support herself and her first husband, until his death. On the stage she spoke among other lecturers of her time, such as Susan B. Anthony

Because there was no sea by Nancy Anne Miller( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Because There Was No Sea":?combines a mastery of simile (the 'jaws' of bicycle brakes snapping at the wind 'like two dogs'; a golf ball hit 'like a semibreve into/ the staff of phone lines') with a Blake-like ability to build whole worlds from a grain of sand (or a phone, which 'may as well be a conch/from off the beach'). This is a restless, Janus-faced collection, simultaneously looking back on childhood memories of Bermuda ('alive, fresh as raw meat') and thirstily drinking in the details of the wider world.? -Jacob Silkstone, editor of The Missing Slate
