Price: 2.99 0.99
Description: Vikram is not your model Indian-American teenager. Growing up in late 1980s Wisconsin, he is rebellious, adrift, and resentful of his Indian roots. But a disastrously drunken weekend becomes a one-way ticket back to the homeland for Vikram after his outraged parents decide to pack up the family and return to India.

So begins a profound journey of culture shock, loneliness, and self-discovery as Vikram--navigating the chaos of daily Indian life and the antiquated social rules of his college--finds the confidence to explore his own creativity, reconnect with his family, and meet unforgettable new friends. Most of all, he discovers that India is his soul ... but America is his heart, the land of his destiny, leading to a once-in-a-lifetime test of courage as he sets out to chart a bold new course for his future.

Debt Collector (Episodes 1-3) - Sci-Fi
4.6 stars over 19 reviews
Price: 2.99 0.99
Description: What's your life worth on the open market?

A debt collector can tell you precisely.

Lirium plays the part of the grim reaper well, with his dark trenchcoat, jackboots, and the black marks on his soul that every debt collector carries. He's just in it for his cut, the ten percent of the life energy he collects before he transfers it on to the high potentials, the people who will make the world a better place with their brains, their work, and their lives. That hit of life energy, a bottle of vodka, and a visit from one of Madam Anastazja's sex workers keep him alive, stable, and mostly sane... until he collects again. But when his recovery ritual is disrupted by a sex worker who isn't what she seems, he has to choose between doing an illegal hit for a girl whose story has more holes than his soul or facing the bottle alone--a dark pit he's not sure he'll be able to climb out of again.

Stories from a Teacher - Memoir
4.5 stars over 301 reviews
Price: 2.99 0.00
Description: On his 22nd birthday, Jonathan Flores became a teacher. But after only four years, Mr. Flores turned in his resignation. When that happened, his students showed up to find out why. Instead of describing a single moment that made him quit, he told them his stories - each one, an insane memory from his teaching career.

While he describes how he fell in love with the job, he also describes the harder realities that followed. As the world demands superhero-teachers, Flores shares experiences (from hilarious to heartbreaking) to reveal that teachers aren't invincible. Each memory offers deeper insight into the teaching life, and the obstacles teachers face from day to day.

The book is composed of linked short stories will resonate with young teachers, as well as high-school students.
