Tired of merely designing the perfect outfit, she sets out to design the perfect person. But by the time she realizes beauty is only skin deep, she’s already unleashed her monster on the world. Now it’s a race against time to stop the vile creature from destroying her life, and she has to do it in the most evil place of all – high school.
After ditching her horrifying creation in L.A., all Victoria wants is the perfect senior year, but it becomes impossible when the dreaded beast shows up in her own backyard. Armed with a new body, a new attitude and a new name, M turns the school hierarchy on its head.

I n this wildly entertaining and informative comic book, our hero, Mr. Tompkins meets Albert Einstein and explores such mysteries as gravity and the speed of light. Here’s a chance to learn something and have fun while you’re at it.
“The Adventures of Mr. Tompkins” is based on the popular “Mr. Tompkins” book series by the legendary scientist and author, George Gamow. Gamow’ s breadth of knowledge was astounding. He originated the Big Bang theory of the Universe, did groundbreaking work on radioactivity and helped decipher the genetic code. Now, renowned inventor and scientist, R. Igor Gamow has teamed up with talented comic book illustrator, Scorpio Steele, to bring Mr. Tompkins to life in a comic book series.
Along with Isaac Asimov, Gamow is regarded as one of the greatest science popularizers of all time. He wrote books on how the atom works; radioactivity; electromagnetism; the nature of light; and how scientists understand space, time, and motion. However, he’s best known for his classic series of books featuring the lovable character, Mr. Tompkins.
“The idea of this comic book is brilliant. Daunting topics, such as the theory of relativity, nuclear fission, and radioactivity, are presented here in a form that speaks to and entertains a very general audience. The author even uses analogies that help readers relate to very abstract concepts”.
– Catherine Thureson, Clarion Book Reviews
“By his ingenuity and narrative skills, Gamow is able to transform the puzzling and obscure mysteries of physics into magical and enthralling stories. It was Mr. Tompkins who made the new physics vivid and real for me as a child and I am sure that he will continue to do the same for a great many others.”

Shelley, friend and lover to Liam, also has her losses, but keeps these a secret from him.
Their reactions are very different. Michael’s is very positive: he simply cannot believe his luck. The others, however, do not react in the same way: Shelley is disgusted, Barbara cannot face making a decision and ten-year-old Connor simply doesn’t understand.
There are further complications. Michael has to consider his estranged wife, Susan: she has not been chosen for the program. Barbara discovers the experience is likely to leave her penniless. Connor has not only lost his mother, but also his father. So he is faced with a dilemma that no ten-year-old boy should ever have to face: which one to choose?

A birthday party is one of the few occasions when our father might come to visit, but you can’t count on it. “Guess what kids?” Mom says, trying to cheer my sister up as she dishes up dark brown squares of cake laced with shreds of carrot that look like little worms: “This cake contains absolutely no refined sugar. Instead, I used frozen orange juice concentrate!”
This is when we hear the sound of Latin music coming up the street like an ice cream truck. My sister’s eyes light up as she yells, “Papoo!” and runs out the door. I see our father’s Volvo pulling into the gravel driveway, his tires making the sound of popcorn popping. He’s pulling some kind of silver trailer with a shaggy grey pony in it that looks wild-eyed and is trying to escape.
“Oh Christ,” Grandpa Joe says, getting up to investigate. “What the hell’s he done now?”

Growing up with a Colombian father for whom magical realism was a way of life made ordinary reality feel like an immigrant experience for author Jose Chaves, who was born in the U.S. but–as his father would insist–”made in Colombia!”
That experience comes alive like a movie on the page in The Contract of Love, a memoir about family that is both hilarious and heartbreaking. Chaves’ straightforward style turns the familiar exotic and makes the unfamiliar feel like home as he takes readers on a cultural journey from small-town, muscle-car America to the Chaves family farm in Colombia, where the cow is named Lyndon Johnson, and an emotional journey from his father’s volatile world where unrequited love is sung out loud in restaurants, to a fraternity where the most important rule is to never reveal your feelings to another guy in public.
With tenderness, humor, and hypnotic clarity, Chaves explores the landscape of love that holds us together, beyond the addictions that bind us–from the broken faith that sends a boy spiraling down, to the grace that finds the man.
