Nash: The Official Biography (Hardcover)
by Nash Grier

- by Gallery Books
- (ISBN13: 9781501137211)
Nash is a social media darling by his own testimony, which is supported by his 4.8 million followers. Reading the book I found that his story is inspirational. I would recommend it to my students to see that there is more to the story than could be posted in 280 characters. Nash is a strong person, and his character is shown in the pages to inspire my students to reach their dreams. This book was passed on to me by the publisher I went hesitantly into reading this Biography. First of all I do not Know who Nash Grier is. I have never logged on to Vines, and do not even check out Twitter. As a mother of a daughter his age I found I was remarkably impressed by Nash’s self reflection and description of his life’s ebbs and flows.
Badlands Witch (Cormac and Amelia Story)

Carrie Vaughn has another masterpiece. Cormac and Amelia are separated when a character from his past attempts to gain vengeance on him. The drama of their separation almost destroy both of these resilient characters, they find that they are better together than alone. The slow resolution of the novella inspires the reader to understand the depth of their relationship. I love the Cormac and Amelia series and hope that it continues.
