NON-FICTION
Released: April 15, 2013

"Valuable as encouragement for caregivers to empathize with the turbulent years, but remains uneven and not far-reaching enough as an amalgam of science and parenting advice."

A LEAGUE OF HER OWN
by Leila Roy

“I want you to do this because you genuinely want to play, not because—well, because you feel the weight of historical responsibility.”

CHOOSING YOUR OWN PATH
by Leila Roy

Everyone wants something different from me. It’s like one second, I should be a better dude. I should stop being such a girly douche, and I should just man up. Then, it’s the opposite: I’m too much of a guy, and it’s not right. I should be a girl, because that’s what I’m supposed to be.

by Leila Roy

While the multiple sexual harassment lawsuits make him a somewhat problematic figure now, Bob Barker was a hugely iconic figure in my childhood.
