When Alex Cooper was fifteen years old, life was pretty ordinary in her sleepy suburban town and nice Mormon family. At church and at home, Alex
was taught that God had a plan for everyone. But something was gnawing at her that made her feel different. These feelings exploded when she met
Yvette, a girl who made Alex feel alive in a new way, and with whom Alex would quickly fall in love. Alex knew she was holding a secret that could
shatter her family, her church community, and her life. Yet when this secret couldn't be hidden any longer, she told her parents that she was gay, and
the nightmare began. She was driven from her home in Southern California to Utah, where, against her will, her parents handed her over to fellow
Mormons who promised to save Alex from her homosexuality. For eight harrowing months, Alex was held captive in an unlicensed "residential treatment
program" modeled on the many "therapeutic" boot camps scattered across Utah. Alex was physically and verbally abused, and many days she was
forced to stand facing a wall wearing a heavy backpack full of rocks. Her captors used faith to punish and terrorize her. With the help of a dedicated
legal team in Salt Lake City, Alex eventually escaped and made legal history in Utah by winning the right to live under the laws protection as an openly
gay teenager. Alex is not alone; the headlines continue to splash stories about gay conversion therapy and rehabilitation centers that promise to "save"
teenagers from their sexuality. Saving Alexis a courageous memoir that tells Alexs story in the hopes that it will bring awareness and justice to this
important issue. A bold, inspiring story of one girls fight for freedom, acceptance, and truth.

More than a century ago, a school was constructed in Fort Worth, Texas, for the purpose of housing and educating the orphans of Texas Freemasons.
It was a humble project that for years existed quietly on a hillside east of town. Life at the Masonic Home was about to change, though, with the arrival
of a lean, bespectacled coach by the name of Rusty Russell. Here was a man who could bring rain in the midst of a drought. Here was a man who, in
virtually no time at all, brought the orphans' story into the homes of millions of Americans. In the 1930s and 1940s, there was nothing bigger in Texas
high school football than the Masonic Home Mighty Mites―a group of orphans bound together by hardship and death. These youngsters, in spite of
being outweighed by at least thirty pounds per man, were the toughest football team around. They began with nothing―not even a football―yet in a
few years were playing for the state championship on the highest level of Texas football. This is a winning tribute to a courageous band of underdogs
from a time when America desperately needed fresh hope and big dreams. (April 24 - May 31)
