Smoke Gets In Your Eyes: And Other Lessons From the Crematory
Most people want to avoid thinking about death, but Caitlin Doughty-a twenty-something with a degree in medieval history and a flair for the macabre-took a job at a crematory, turning morbid curiosity into her life's work. With an original voice that combines fearless curiosity and mordant wit, Caitlin tells an unusual coming-of-age story full of bizarre encounters, gallows humor, and vivid characters (both living and very dead). In the spirit of her popular Web series, "Ask a Mortician," Caitlin's engaging narrative style makes this otherwise scary topic both approachable and profound.

RED MADNESS How a Medical Mystery Changed What We Eat

One hundred years ago, a mysterious disease called pellagra spread across the American South. No one knew what caused it or how to treat it. Millions of men, women, and children were left weak, disfigured, insane and in some cases, dead. Many were also left to worry -- would they be pellagra's next victims?

Author Gail Jarrow closely tracks this devastating disease using vivid photographs and actual cases, and she reveals the story of the doctors, researchers, and public health officials who struggled to stop the epidemic. STARRED REVIEWS -- School Library Journal and Kirkus Reviews!

Branded by the Pink Triangle
Before the rise of the Nazi party, Germany, especially Berlin, was one of the most tolerant places for homosexuals in the world. But that all changed when the Nazis came to power. When the concentration camps were built, homosexuals were imprisoned along with Jews and the pink triangle sewn onto prison uniforms became the symbol of the persecution of homosexuals. A mix of historical research, first-person accounts and individual stories brings this time to life for young readers. Stories of bravery, friendship and the perseverance of the human spirit will educate and inspire.
