Theory of Grocery Shopping:Food, Choice and Conflict Shelley Koch
One Kid. One Crime. One Chance to Make Things Right. It was a bitterly cold day when Arthur T. Owens grabbed a brick and hurled it at the trash picker. Arthur had his reasons, and the brick hit the Junk Man in the arm, not the head. But none of that matters to the judge - he is ready to send Arthur to juvie for the foreseeable future. Amazingly, it´s the Junk Man himself who offers an alternative: 120 hours of community service...working for him. Arthur is given a rickety shopping cart and a list of the Seven Most Important Things: glass bottles, foil, cardboard, pieces of wood, lightbulbs, coffee cans, and mirrors. He can´t believe it - is he really supposed to rummage through people´s trash? But it isn´t long before Arthur realizes there´s more to the Junk Man than meets the eye, and the ´´trash´´ he´s collecting is being transformed into something more precious than anyone could imagine.... Inspired by the work of American folk artist James Hampton, award-winning author Shelley Pearsall has crafted an affecting and redemptive novel about discovering what shines within us all, even when life seems full of darkness. 1.

Because love can happen anywhere...even in New Jersey! It´s a beautiful morning in early spring. What could possibly go wrong? Just returned from a buying trip in England, Kate French was jet-lagged and exhausted and running on fumes. She was already running late for an appointment, but a wave of dizziness forced her to pull into the shopping mall parking lot in search of a quick fix of caffeine and protein. When the pain first hit, she ignored it and continued racing across the parking lot toward the food court. But within moments she realized something was terribly wrong, as her wobbly legs gave out and she dropped to the ground. The last thing she remembered as she started to fade away was the guy in the Grateful Dead T-shirt who held her in his arms and promised he´d never let her go. And then she took another look.... Praise for Just Like Heaven ´´TOP PICK! Bretton´s lyrical writing enthralls from the first page as she immerses readers in a tale of romance and new beginnings.´´ (Romantic Times) ´´Bretton has few peers among contemporary romance novelists when it comes to combining escapist romance with everyday, messy reality. She´ll make you believe that love can happen anywhere - or make you grateful that you´ve been fortunate enough to find it.´´ (Susan Scribner, The Romance Reader) ´´This one will keep you reading past your bedtime.´´ (Elizabeth Darrach, BellaOnline) ´´Starred Review. Very few romance writers create characters as well developed and realistic as Bretton´s. Her books pull you in and don´t let you leave until the last word is read.´´ (Shelley Mosley, Booklist) 1.
