Where Am I Now? by Mara Wilson

Mara Wilson, the girl who was Matilda, looks over a world and life never as bright as the movies made it out to be. Incredibly candid, honestly heart-full, she not only relates wry, funny stories of an idiosyncratic child-star life, but also of dealing with OCD and depression, early great loss, and growing up to an artistic life. Fascinating as an online personality, I loved getting to know her (and recognizing myself) in these pages.  —Jocelyn

Swimming in the Sink by Lynne Cox

Lynne Cox’s record-breaking open-water swimming career has always been an inspiration, but her new book, Swimming in the Sink, is something distinctive and powerful. Her connection to the water bears her both through the loss of her parents and the resulting atrial fibrillation (broken heart system) that brings her near to death; but Lynne's extraordinary heart not only propels her through the water and this loss, but becomes the focal point of medical research to understand the unique characteristics of her body.
