REDHEADED ED by Faye Allison Gilbert
Ed's adored by all the girls who love his hair of bright red curls

(Not one decides to stick around.)
Ed soon meets a girl with flair who tells him she admires his hair.
Does she really like the red he grows upon his hairy head?
FREEDOM RUN, by Faye Ellen Hartzell
For so many years the pain of the past was like an invisible chain; the links of that chain being reminders of childhood trauma. Those links, bound so tightly together, would allow her to be an active participant of daily life, but kept her tethered to a wall of shame.
She tried to find the key to freeing herself from that wall; but each time, she'd feel the familiar tug and realize she wasn't going anywhere.
Who knew a pair of sneakers would be the beginning of deliverance?
This memoir is about so much more than running a race.
