This Might Hurt A Bit

“Full of wit and wisdom, and riotously funny to boot. A phenomenal debut!” —Ransom Riggs, New York Times bestselling author of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children “As irreverent as it is gratifying.” —David Arnold, New York Times bestselling author of Kids of Appetite and Mosquitoland A grieving teen faces dangerous classmates, reckless friends, and the one-year anniversary of his sister’s devastating death in this poignant, quirky, often humorous novel that’s perfect for fans of Jeff Zentner and Brendan Kiely. Kirby Burns is about to have the second worst day of his life. Tomorrow is the one-year anniversary of the worst day of his life, and in the three hundred and sixty-four days since then he hasn’t stopped running: from his family, his memories, and the horse-sized farm dogs that chase him to the bus stop every morning. But he can’t run forever, and Kirby and his friends PJ and Jake sneak out of his house to play a prank with consequences that follow them to school the next day, causing a chain reaction of mayhem and disaster. It’s a story that’s touching and funny, an authentic meditation on the pain of loss, and the challenge of getting paint to stick to cows.

This Won T Hurt A Bit

This Won T Hurt A Bit

Michelle Au started medical school armed only with a surfeit of idealism, a handful of old ER episodes for reference, and some vague notion about "helping people." This Won't Hurt a Bit is the story of how she grew up and became a real doctor. It's a no-holds-barred account of what a modern medical education feels like, from the grim to the ridiculous, from the heartwarming to the obscene. Unlike most medical memoirs, however, this one details the author's struggles to maintain a life outside of the hospital, in the small amount of free time she had to live it. And, after she and her husband have a baby early in both their medical residencies, Au explores the demands of being a parent with those of a physician, two all-consuming jobs in which the lives of others are very literally in her hands. Au's stories range from hilarious to heartbreaking and hit every note in between, proving more than anything that the creation of a new doctor (and a new parent) is far messier, far more uncertain, and far more gratifying than one could ever expect.

This Might Hurt A Bit

In this highly-anticipated debut collection of short stories by Chicago's legendary lover, fighter, doorman, and raconteur, Steve Silver; This Might Hurt A Bit will make you feel less lonely and more alive if you just go with it. These stories, touched by both history and legend are rife with physical and emotional pain. Starting with his childhood and continuing through his time as the door guy at Chicago's notorious punk rock club, Exit, Steve's stories are as funny as they are scary. Rendered with complete emotional honesty, readers will be surprised to find tales that are both bizarre and uplifting at the same time! Frankly, This Might Hurt A Bit, does. But it also shines a light on the mystery of how tough guys are made, and why they so often turn out to be the best-loved among us. Come with him as he grows up poor but interesting, hard but kind. Travel back to the beginnings of the rock and roll revolution that was the 60's and see how it profoundly affected a kid that needed saving. The music was ultimately what formed him into a guardian of punks, street kids, lost souls, rock stars, and bad guys. The journey from the middle of nowhere to the center of the scene is a winding one for sure, each of the characters along the way are worthy of their own book. Steve spent time with many colorful people, and his stories recount the adventures and emotions of many of their experiences as if it were only yesterday. " I've spent some hairy scary times with Steve - he made some of them less scary, a few of them, more. The prospect of him now staring down words and punching metaphors in the face is quite electrifying." Martin Atkins-Musician, Author and Educator.
