On the Couch with Dr. Angello
When a single child comes out, their entire family will transition, along with their community. On The Couch With Dr. Angello is an eye-opening guide to navigating social spaces when most don't quite understand the process of changing genders. Dr. Angello offers emotional help and unwavering support as parents with trans identified children ride the waves of grief, acceptance and eventual healing. After years of televised appearances this book comes at a time when the sensationalism of transgender identity has calmed-a time when hearts and ears across the nation are daringly sympathetic and finally able to aid and uplift the transgender experience. In this fascinating examination of budding identity all audiences have something to gain as Dr. Michele Angello uncovers the behind the scenes journey parents, teachers, pastors, children and medical professionals will take in order to support gender variant youth. Grappling with the real life situations of transitioning in public, coming out to school principals and dealing with family dynamics, Dr. Angello leaves no topic unturned from faith and spirituality to hormone therapy. On The Couch With Dr. Angello might very well be an undercover Trans 101 course. Camouflaged by its diligent story telling, this would-be self-help book is a reassuring response to youth who are yearning for guidance as they angle to step into their right skins. Skillfully and uniquely Dr. Angello addresses the tender experience of discovering who our best allies are. As she has in practice with many teenagers she addresses the angst in developing crushes, dating and sex; the hope in fostering relationships with the ever-important cheerleaders; and provides action steps to seek out and create safe space in school, in church and the doctor's office. As a source identifying the true complexities of human anatomy this book is a powerful testament to where the limitless destinations a heart felt pursuit for authenticity can lead. Chronicling a 14-year practice, Dr. Angello inspires hope, challenges boundaries and demonstrates just how powerful unconditional love can be. Regardless of your place on the gender spectrum On The Couch With Dr. Angello is a book you won't want to put down.

The Secret Key of Pythagorum
On a incredible journey of magic, fantasy and mystery, a young man comes of age in the shadow of a supernatural family legacy. Savaric doesn’t know what to think. Is he a warlock? Is he cursed? Is he even of this earth? Everyone already looks at him strangely everywhere he goes. Then Savaric discovers that, under the right circumstances, he can become invisible. Could it have something to do with the dark powers in which his grandmother dabbled on the day he was born? The search for the answer leads him to a mysterious map. It’s written in language he’s never seen. It’s of place he’s never heard of. And now in possession of a beautiful, and equally puzzling, golden key, Savaric’s curiosity is getting the best of him. Embarking on this strange quest, he meets many new friends—human and otherwise. He also discovers his mission in life. Savaric has been destined to save a kingdom. All he has to now is to survive the fierce enemies dispatched to destroy him. An epic of magical worldbuilding, The Secret Key of Pythagorum “will prove to be an immediate and enduringly popular addition to . . . the personal reading lists of dedicated fantasy fans” (Midwest Book Review).
