Summary: The sinking of an ocean liner leaves a newly married woman battling for survival in this powerful debut novel. Grace Winter, 22, is both a newlywed and a widow. She is also on trial for her life. In the summer of 1914, the elegant ocean liner carrying her and her husband Henry across the Atlantic suffers a mysterious explosion. Setting aside his own safety, Henry secures Grace a place in a lifeboat, which the survivors quickly realize is over capacity. For any to live, some must die. As the castaways battle the elements, and each other, Grace recollects the unorthodox way she and Henry met, and the new life of privilege she thought she'd found. Will she pay any price to keep it? The Lifeboat is a page-turning novel of hard choices and survival, narrated by a woman as unforgettable and complex as the events she describes.

Summary: Mean Girls meets Life of Pi in this darkly humorous, compulsively readable teen novel that’s perfect for fans of Libba Bray and Andrew Smith. A hilariously dark and twisted story that sparkles with a remarkably fresh voice, The Lifeboat Clique is Kathy Parks's irreverent yet insightful novel about how to survive in the most unthinkable circumstances. Some people might say that Denver has a death wish. Why else would she dare to sneak into a Malibu beach party where she’d be surrounded by enemies? Oh yeah. Croix. Denver never thought in a million years he’d ask her out, but who is she to question this miracle of fate? Well, that isn’t the only surprise fate has in store. During the party a tsunami hits the coast of California, and Denver and a handful of others escape death and are swept out to sea. Of course, one of her fellow castaways is none other than her ex-BFF, Abigail, who can barely stand the sight of her. Trapped on a small boat with the most popular kids in school and waiting to be rescued, Denver wonders what might kill her first—dehydration, sunstroke, or the girl she used to think of as a sister?

Summary: On his last day as a resident in psychiatry, Dr. Jorch Karson decided to entertain his therapy group with a lighthearted game of lifeboat. The object is to observe the process by which the members discern who in the group would be expendable if only a specified number could survive. Dr. Vanderwillt, an elderly, male patient, is jokingly rebuffed by some of the younger group members, who imply that because of his age, he should not object to being dumped overboard. In retaliation, the incensed Dr. Vanderwillt proclaims that there is one thing far worse than getting old; not having the choice. The story, Lifeboat, is about a young, naïve doctor who, with the encouragement of a very charming program coordinator, becomes unwittingly involved in a program called GRFL, or “Gentle Relief from Life.” The program is comparable to the end of life, as planned parenthood is to the beginning. Despite being assured that the program was only In the profile development phase, Dr. Karson soon has reason to suspect that some Patients were turning up as victims of tragic accidents. Like a gemologist, who appraises the quality of precious stones, Dr. Karson considered himself an expert in appraising the quality of his fellowman’s reality. But soon, he began to question the quality of his own reality. With trepidation, Dr. Karson finally admits that he is in a situation where the guardrail between right and wrong is absent. He has accepted a job that courted his expertise, but only needs and wants his credentials.

Summary: Uncommon times call for uncommon wisdom. It’s inspiring to hear from people who’ve graduated from the school of hard knocks, yet kept a sense of humor. People like Twain, Voltaire, Oscar Wilde. People who've said the thing so well that we all wish we'd said it. People who've been there, done that, and refuse to sugarcoat what they've learned. People who know, as Sherry Hochman puts it, that "Every day is a gift—even if it sucks." From Kathryn and Ross Petras, curators of craziness (and surprising smarts), comes a timely collection of reassuring reality: "Why is there so much month left at the end of the money?"—John Barrymore "October. This is one of the peculiarly dangerous months to speculate in stocks in. The others are July, January, September, April, November, May, March, June, December, August, and February." —Mark Twain "I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish he didn't trust me so much."—Mother Teresa "When one burns one's bridges, what a very nice fire it makes."—Dylan Thomas "If you think you have it tough, read history books."—Bill Maher And Voltaire: "Life is a shipwreck but we must not forget to sing in the lifeboats."

Summary: A Tale of Titanic Lifeboat # 15 Bert Johns was a quiet young man. He came to America to start a new life. His story, although new to us, has been told for the past 100 years in his hometown of Hardin, Lebanon. His family relates that he was deeply affected by the sinking of Titanic, as we can all imagine. He was consumed by thoughts of it every day of the 40 years he lived after Titanic. He was a very sad man. He told his story to very few people, for he was harassed and tormented for saving himself in a lifeboat half full of people. He moved to Marlette, Michigan after working three years in factories in Port Huron. Marlette must have seemed as far away from Titanic as any place in the world. I was told the story of Bert Johns and Titanic by friends, Marlette attorney, Ward Atkins, and Bert’s friend and business associate, Earl Ingram back in 1985. He requested of these friends that his story not be told until 50 years after his death, for the sake of his family. Bert died in 1952. A hundred years have passed since the sinking of the mighty Titanic. She lies now at the bottom of the sea. Bert’s story can now be told. I am proud to be able to tell it. “The Ropes of the Past Ring The Bells of the Future ...” -Carl Sandburg
