As an adult book, Sam Quinones's Dreamland took the world by storm, winning the NBCC Award for General Nonfiction and hitting at least a dozen Best Book of the Year lists. Now, adapted for the first time for a young adult audience, this compelling reporting explains the roots of the current opiate crisis. In 1929, in the blue-collar city of Portsmouth, Ohio, a company built a swimming pool the size of a football field; named Dreamland, it became the vital center of the community. Now, addiction has devastated Portsmouth, as it has hundreds of small rural towns and suburbs across America. How that happened is the riveting story of Dreamland. Quinones explains how the rise of the prescription drug OxyContin, a miraculous and extremely addictive painkiller pushed by pharmaceutical companies, paralleled the massive influx of black tar heroin--cheap, potent, and originating from one small county on Mexico's west coast, independent of any drug cartel. Introducing a memorable cast of characters--pharmaceutical pioneers, young Mexican entrepreneurs, narcotics investigators, survivors, teens, and parents--Dreamland is a revelatory account of the massive threat facing America and its heartland.

In a world of border walls and obstacles to migration, a lottery where winners can gain permanent residency in the United States sounds too good to be true. Just as unlikely is the idea that the United States would make such visas available to foster diversity within a country where systemic racism endures. But in 1990, the United States Diversity Visa Lottery was created to do just that. Dreamland tells the surprising story of this unlikely government program and its role in American life as well as the global story of migration. Historian Carly Goodman takes readers from Washington, D.C., where proponents deployed a colorblind narrative about our "nation of immigrants" to secure visas for white immigrants, to the African countries where it flourished and fostered dreams of going to America. From the post office to the internet, aspiring emigrants, visa agents, and others embraced the lottery and tried their luck in a time of austerity and limits. Rising African immigration to the United States has enriched American life, created opportunities for mobility, and nourished imagined possibilities. But the promise of the American dream has been threatened by the United States' embrace of anti-immigrant policies and persistent anti-Black racism.

Roy Rempel argues that the past decade has been marked by an ideological and domestically driven foreign policy agenda that has lost sight of the national interest. As a consequence, Canada's policy options are narrowing, national sovereignty is eroding, and the country risks evolving into a protectorate of the United States. Dreamland analyzes how Canada's foreign policy has subverted the myths that Canadians believe about themselves and their place in the world.

In Dreamland nothing is what it seems, so when a group of total strangers wake up in the dark, in a place they know nothing about, what could only be described as a quest begins as they search for reasoning and a way out. Having no idea how they arrived at this strange place, they must search for answers and determine who, or what, is keeping them here. Faced with real world scenarios to either succeed by doing what's necessary or perish with failure, they must learn to work together if they expect to survive. Guiding the way, and driven by a need to lead by example, ex U.S. Army Intelligence Agent Brad Miller puts his own life above all others and obtains the respect of a psychologist, a geek, a mentor, a dancer and a photojournalist. These people might be the last he ever sees, and the last friends he might ever make, as he attempts to free them from this strange place.

' Love ' Must I be Shakespeare to express my love one which was greater than life seeming to last forever, everlasting We had it so good, enjoying each other friends and lovers, or lovers and friends difficult to say what was first, or both at once Our love was the Sun splashing us brightly and the shimmering stars at night sending us kisses of love incessantly Our love were people smiling at us wishing us all the goodwills of the world and we ourselves, united in each other Everything was in place, rightfully and godly rivers of honey, seas of boundless beauty biodiversity serving us as we serving her But when you went away one day from me with no goodbye, no a word of farewell it was the end of the world for me, Romeo alike Stars crashed down on Earth the following night and I was swept away by the high seas a castaway on the ocean, in its full storm I was myself a bottle with a message inside saying I love you till the end of the world the bottle filled with the tears of my despair " Love " by Thaddeus Hutyra Copyright © Thaddeus Hutyra All Rights Reserved.
