Excerpt from Back in the Day 2: The College Years With the little strength he had, Thomas told us he wanted to go camping one last time. "Consider this my dying wish and honor it, please?" Later that night Thomas began to use the bucket more frequently than he had been. He said he had one last thing he wanted. He told Chris he wanted to sit on his lap and have Chris sing his favorite song to him. They looked into each other's eyes as Chris started to sing "I see trees of green, red roses too." We all knew what that song was. When Chris got to the part that says "They're really sayin' I love you," Thomas forced out the words to Chris. "I love you" and with that Thomas closed his eyes and drew his last breath. Thomas got everything he wanted in his final days and hours. We could see Chris just sitting there rocking Thomas' lifeless body. Reviews for Back in the Day: Anthony Larson Phoenix, AZ It is rare that a book speaks to me in the way this book did. It has been a long time since I was so taken by a book that i had to literally force myself to put it down in order to do things like sleep and eat. I had only gotten as far as the second paragraph when I first had the thought that this could just as well be my story. As it turns out I would have that thought more times than I could count. I am by no means easily moved to tears by something I am reading; however, this book moved me to tears a number of times. If only every teenager who sees his or her self as being "different" in any way could have parents like John and Sara Kendall this world would be a much better place. Jeff Milyard Arizona The excerpt from your book strikes home as a dear friend was beaten by both his mother and father after discovering a love letter from his boyfriend. While I tried to ease his pain that incident placed fear in my heart and I never did come out.

A star during his lifetime, a legend after a bullet killed him at the age of twenty-five, Tupac Shakur was the most influential rap musician of his day–and the most misunderstood. Far from being the insolent “gangsta” that the press put forth, Tupac was a committed and fearless visionary determined to make a difference not only on the music scene but in the black community at large. Darrin Bastfield grew up with Tupac in a rough Baltimore neighborhood, rapped with him, fought with him, and performed by his side. Now in this vivid, highly personal memoir featuring never-before-seen photos of the rap artist, Darrin shows the world what Tupac Shakur was really like as a teenager destined for greatness. In tight, edgy prose, Darrin follows Tupac through the seven years of their friendship. In Roland Park Middle School in the mid-1980s, rap was a kind of underground movement, and the kids with real talent always found each other. Tupac–new in town, a skinny thirteen-year old with shabby clothes and lopsided hair–may have looked uncool, but it soon became clear that he had the gift. When Tupac teamed up with Mouse, king of the beatbox, they blew the school away in their performance as the Eastside Crew. It was the first in a series of increasingly electrifying performances. When Tupac went to the Baltimore School for the Arts, then it really started to happen. A new group called Born Busy, unforgettable performances at the Beaux Arts Balls, an eye-opening backstage encounter with Salt-N-Pepa, their tight friendship with John, known among black kids as “the cool white boy,” a series of love affairs with adoring girls, the wild nights of the 1988 senior prom–Tupac and Darrin lived though it all together, and in this memoir Darrin makes it all come alive again. From the start, Darrin knew Tupac was a marked man, singled out by his charismatic gift. So it came as no surprise that Tupac made it big when rap went mainstream. What stunned Darrin was the violent turn Tupac’s life took once he relocated to L.A.–and how swiftly that violence engulfed and destroyed him. Vibrant, gritty, alive with the tension and spontaneity of rap music, this memoir of Tupac’s teenage years is a haunting portrait of one of the most important artists of our day.

Back In The Day By: Steve Heuton We all shook hands and watched as Andy bent down and ran for the chopper. He jumped on, turned to us, and flashed the peace sign as it lifted off. We watched for a second from the jeep. Then Ed started the engine and we headed back. Suddenly, we heard a loud explosion. I jumped from the jeep and looked back as we slid to a stop, watching in horror as the chopper, engulfed in flames, plummeted to the ground. Back In The Day by Steve Heuton transports you to the late 1960s to experience life as it actually was “back in the day.” Steve’s powerful descriptions of the life of Jimmy Reno are founded partially in the experiences had by himself and loved ones who scarified for our country during Viet Nam. We come to know Jimmy during the innocence of high school and we fall in love with him as he meets Angela for the first time. But, he too must deal with the reality of the impending draft. Living through the intense emotions caused by the perils of war forces Jimmy to grow up too fast. Run-ins with the law and bar fights aren’t the only things weighing Jimmy down. Will he be able to prevail and come to grips with these inner demons threatening to annihilate all that he loves?

I've always longed to get to know her, and now's my chance! Izzy says we mustn't change anything in the past, as it might mean our future selves don't even get born. But how can I not warn my mum about her fate? If there's a chance that I can save her, surely I've got to take it. Wouldn't you . . .?"

Claire Vincent is a misunderstood and confused girl who has no friends her own age. The kids at school think she's weird, and she'd rather be left alone than have to deal with their rude stares and hurtful comments. Her only friend is her bold and adventurous grandmother Millie, who's traveled the world and done everything from going on safaris to flying planes. Claire wants to be just like her, but that's much harder for her than anyone realizes. She's not courageous enough to even try - and so she remains a loner, burying her nose in books and escaping into the imaginative magical worlds she reads about. But when a new kid, Matt, moves next door, she finds herself slowly drawn into the world of the living, despite her misgivings. Matt would do anything to please her, and she finds herself depending on him for everything - friends, social life, and recognition. But it's a dependence she eventually grows to despise because it just makes her own weakness that much more apparent. She yearns for more - real magic in her life, to sweep her away from the land of the boring. When Claire's father decides to throw her grandmother a surprise seventy-fifth birthday party despite her grandmother's vehement aversion to celebrating birthdays, Claire finds out that a magical life might not be as desirable as she naively believed. An unexpected guest at her grandmother's party - Jack, a handsome boy new to town - seems to know Gran very well. Claire soon discovers her grandmother has been keeping a very big secret - and that secret might just be the perennially mysterious Jack.
