Though the end of your life may be near, it doesn't mean you have to stop living After being diagnosed in her early thirties with terminal breast cancer, Heather McManamy felt like her life was crumbling. Her "normal" vanished—and was replaced with multiple surgeries and dozens of chemo treatments that could briefly extend her life, but would not prevent her inevitable death. With an effervescent spirit and a new perspective, Heather started to live each day as if it were her last. She learned to soak in the moment, appreciate the beauty around her, and celebrate her blessings. She also pondered her daughter's future journey without her mother—and gracefully prepared for it. Heather began to write greeting cards to Brianna. Cards for her first day of school, her sixteenth birthday, her wedding day. Cards for when things were going right and when they were going wrong. Cards for when Brianna would need her mother—whether in five years or in fifty years-and Heather wouldn't be able to be there for her. Cards for Brianna is the story of one mother's powerful love for her young daughter and Heather's unmatched experiences, laced with laughter and charm, are a reminder to never take a single day for granted.

Heroes meets Bridget Jones in this brilliant, hilarious debut novel about a girl who just wants to save the world... Bremy St James, daughter of billionaire Atticus St James, has been cut off from the family fortune and is struggling to survive in a world that no longer holds its breath every time she buys a new outfit. To make matters worse, her twin sister is keeping secrets, loan sharks are circling, and the man of her dreams – a newspaper reporter – is on assignment to bring down everyone with the last name St James. Things are certainly looking bleak for the down–and–out socialite until a good deed throws her into the path of the city's top crime–fighter, Dark Ryder. Suddenly, Bremy has a new goal: apprentice to a superhero, and start her own crime–fighting career. Ryder has no need for a sidekick, but it turns out the city needs Bremy's help. Atticus St James is planning the crime of the century, and Bremy may be the only one able to get close enough to her father to stop him. Now all she needs to do is figure out this superhero thing in less than a month, keep her identity secret from the man who could very well be The One, and save the city from total annihilation. Well, no one ever said being a superhero would be easy...
