Ghetto Medic: A Father in the ‘Hood - Rachel Hennick
Genre - Biographical
Rating  - PG
Price - $9.99
Ghetto Medic: A Father in the 'Hood is the remarkable true story of the life of Bill Hennick, a firefighter and paramedic in Baltimore, Maryland, a city which today boasts the busiest fire stations in the United States. The story begins in 1945, when Bill, aged four, is badly burned in a terrible fire started by an older child playing with matches. When he reaches adulthood, he begins searching for his purpose in life and identifies fire as ''the enemy.'' He joins the still-segregated Baltimore City Fire Department at the height of the civil rights movement, witnesses the race riots of 1968 which followed the assassination of Martin Luther King, and battles the ensuing infernos.

When the upper and middle classes abandon the city, Bill sees a ''wasteland'' and develops empathy for those people left behind. He tries to make a difference by becoming a paramedic, a service then in its infancy. His story is set against the history of Baltimore, known for its rich black heritage, the home of jazz legends such as Billie Holiday and Cab Calloway. He embarks on a spiritual journey as he risks his own life in caring for the poorest of the poor in a city with one of the world's highest crime rates.
In this poignant biographical memoir about her father, Rachel Hennick tells a dramatic American story with vibrant characters, pathos and a twist of humor. Ghetto Medic penetrates the heart with a thought-provoking and universal message about the enduring power of compassion.

Beautiful People (4 Book Bundle - The Adventures of Jesus Christ Series)
Beautiful People - Colin Campbell
Genre - Humor
Rating - PG
Price - 2.99
Beautiful People is a hilarious, not-quite-fictional story that’s unlike any Second Coming tale you’ve ever read before. When Jesus is mistaken as a man with mental illness and often misunderstood for a hobo on the streets, his good friend Lyle embarks on a journey to help Jesus fulfill God’s will and save the world’s true believers. But who and where are the true believers? 

The life of Jesus has been well chronicled, as have his miraculous acts, divine teachings and ultimate sacrifice. The Book of Revelations, the final book of the New Testament, sheds a bit of light upon the subject including Christ’s return to Earth. But no one knows about how this story might unfold –except for Lyle, the Messiah’s hobo friend and best bud, who is here to tell you his story. 

In this hilarious tale, the story of Lyle and the stranger is filled with remarkable journeys, magic, death, doubters, fanatics, the Amish, boxers in Vegas all meticulously intertwined between plenty of time to let loose by turning water into wine.

With the distractions of today –population, traffic, public transport, and technology –will they prove too much for an ol’timer in robes and rope sandals? People are living their lives in vain, and urge Jesus to live it up and take what you want because you only get one chance but, it’s Jesus’ second chance. How is he going to live his life the second time around and is Lyle’s friendship going to be his saving grace or his ultimate demise?
