THE EDGE OF EVERYTHING by Jeff Giles
YOUNG ADULT
Released: Jan. 31, 2017

"In the end, this effort doesn't do anything new for the paranormal-romance genre and falls short of the gripping and heart-stopping supernatural tale it promises. (Paranormal romance. 14-18)"
Opposite worlds collide in this supernatural tale of forbidden love and good-versus-evil when 17-year-old Zoe, who is still coping with the death of her father, crosses paths with X, a pale boy of the supernatural variety. Read full book review >
THE TERRORIST'S SON by Zak Ebrahim
BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR
Released: Sept. 9, 2014

BACK IN THE BLUE HOUSE by Jeff Giles
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: March 2, 1992

"Type B personality in a home where mother, father, and sister were Type A. Little depth or insight, but an entertaining read; survivors of troubled families who need a break from, or supplement to, 12- step programs may appreciate the author's alternate route: laughing at the past."
Another memoir (this one called ``autobiography-as-novel'') about a dysfunctional family, but instead of inspiration and pop psychology, Giles serves up suburban nightmare as nostalgic sitcom. Read full book review >
