Where the crawdads sing /
By Owens, Delia,
For years, rumors of the "Marsh Girl" have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. She's barefoot and wild; unfit for polite society. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark. But Kya is not what they say. Abandoned at age ten, she has survived on her own in the marsh that she calls home. A born naturalist with just one day of school, she takes life lessons from the land, learning from the false signals of fireflies the real way of this world. But while she could have lived in solitude forever, the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. Drawn to two young men from town, who are each intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new and startling world -- until the unthinkable happens.

Autism in heels : the untold story of a female life on the spectrum /
By O'Toole, Jennifer Cook,
"The face of autism is changing, and more often than we realize, that face is wearing lipstick. Autism in Heels, an intimate memoir, reveals the woman inside one of autism's most prominent figures, Jennifer Cook O'Toole. At the age of thirty-five, Jennifer was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, and for the first time in her life, things made sense. Now, Jennifer exposes the constant struggle between carefully crafted persona and authentic existence, editing the autism script with wit, candor, passion, and power. Her journey is one of reverse self-discovery, not only as an Aspie but--more importantly--as a thoroughly modern woman. Beyond being a memoir, Autism in Heels is a love letter to all women. It's a conversation starter. A game changer. And 3 firsthand account of what it is to walk in Jennifer's shoes (especially those iconic red stilettos). Whether it's bad perms or body image, sexuality or self-esteem, Jennifer's is as much a human journey as one on the spectrum. Because autism 'looks a bit different in pink,' most girls and women who fit the profile are not identified, facing years of avoidable anxiety, eating disorders, volatile relationships, self-harm, and stunted independence. Jennifer has been there, too. Autism in Heels takes that message to the mainstream."--Dust jacket.Introduction: Thirty-four years -- Backwards in heels : my story in reverse -- Camouflage : hiding in plain sight -- Life with the volume turned up : intense minds, intense .... everything -- Executive, functioning : girls can be professors, too -- Mythbusters : open heart emotion -- The land of anywhere but here : predators and fandom families -- The statue of Venus : friends, rules, and red high heels -- So this is love : autism by gaslight -- Hurts so good : our epidemic of self-harm -- Semicolon : the story of a sisterhood.At the age of thirty-five, O'Toole was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, and for the first time in her life, things made sense.

Phantom warrior : the heroic true story of Pvt. John McKinney's one-man stand against the Japanese in World War II /
By Johnson, F. B.
Includes bibliographical references (p. [325]-327) and index.This is the story of an extraordinary man. John McKinney was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his bravery, but his story has never been told. The son of a Georgia sharecropper, he learned to hunt and survive in the wilderness while helping to feed his family in the Depression. Then came World War II, and he was sent to the Pacific. Before dawn, May 11, 1945, his unit, camped in the Philippines, was attacked by the Japanese. Alone in his foxhole, McKinney returned fire. Out of bullets, he swung his rifle as a club. Then he switched to his knife, then his fists. At the end of the battle, his uniform cut to ribbons, McKinney was alive--with over one hundred Japanese bodies before him. His courage and fortitude in battle saved many American lives, but his legacy has been sadly forgotten by all but a few.--From publisher description.
