Summary

We’re Good is an inspiring story about a well-rounded teenage athlete whose life changed in the blink of an eye. Chris O’Brien innocently dove into the ocean, hit a sandbar, and was instantly paralyzed. Going from a D-1 athlete to quadriplegic at eighteen years old is life changing. Chris was a swimmer, sailor, and student in college going about life before the accident. First time author, Meg Keeshan McGovern, has beautifully captured the pathos that accompanies a family tragedy and illustrates how it can become triumph for all. Through narrative and personal stories she guides the reader through the various stages of grief, denial, anger, therapy and devotion that this one family went through to emerge on the other side stronger and full of more promise than ever.
Available since: 07/03/2018.

    Learn to navigate the perils of everyday awkwardness with this smart, funny and charmingly illustrated guide. 
     
    Homo sapiens have been speaking for thousands of years—and yet basic communication still stymies us. We freeze up in elevators, on dates, at parties, and just about everywhere else. We stagger through our exchanges merely hoping not to crash, never considering that we might soar. But no more.  
     
    With What to Talk About you’ll learn to speak—fluently, intelligently, charmingly—to family, friends, coworkers, lovers, future lovers, horse trainers, children, even yourself. This hilarious manual, written by two award-winning authors and illustrated by legendary cartoonist Tony Millionaire, is tailor-made for anyone who might one day attend a dinner party, start a job, celebrate a birthday, graduate from school, date a human, or otherwise use words. 
     
    What to Talk About is not rocket science, but it is a lot like brain surgery, in the sense that is terrifying, risky—and could change you forever.

    An interactive guide for empaths to help them understand, reflect on, and harness their unique powers. 
     
    Are You an Empath? 
     
    • Have you ever been labeled as “too emotional”? 
     
    • Do you get overwhelmed during confrontations and arguments? 
     
    • Do you take on other people’s emotions and stress? 
     
    • Do you like being outside, walking barefoot and connecting with nature? 
     
    Does This Sound Like You? 
     
    • I have trouble sleeping and often have bouts of insomnia. 
     
    • Sometimes people in my life don’t understand that I need my alone time. 
     
    • I have a hard time setting healthy boundaries for myself. 
     
    • I can become anxious or worried for no reason. 
     
    If any of this sounds familiar, you’re probably an empath. Empaths take on the emotions of others in addition to their own, so it can be hard to handle so many feelings at once. This book is full of easy-to-use interactive prompts and expert tips and techniques that will help you learn how to embrace your emotions, protect yourself from negativity—and develop your empath gifts.
