Tim

"Tim" by Soren Paul Petrek

| About Author | Website | For the most part, Tim is living up to expectations—his parents’ and his own. He’s in college, making good grades, and having dorm-room sex with a girl both beautiful and brainy. But he’s coming to realize it’s no longer enough. He can’t continue ranking everything else, including his father’s ambition, above the one thing that matters most to him: his art. Reviews: "Well invented story that could be real." I enjoyed this book and was able to get to the end quickly! Even though Tim takes on an adventure very few have, he is very grounded and relatable. The characters along the way are amusing as well. It will bring you back to the time of turning that corner into adulthood.~Andrea Flan "Amazing trip across America - with a twist." A feel-good journey of discovery -surprising for our times! A must read for any young adult questioning their path in life.~ljdoone

Kali Miller hasn't even given birth to her first baby, Harry, when husband Matt 'helpfully' hires a live-in nanny, one afternoon while Kali is shopping for eco-friendly diapers. The beguiling Britta Edvardsson is svelte, blonde and Swedish enough to make any new mom mother insecure, especially one who looks and feels as ginormous post-delivery as she did before. And Matt (surprise!) seems to know more than a bit of conversational Swedish.  Still, a nanny means Kali can go back to work and continue to claw her way to partnership in Biltmore, Durham & Spears, and the Millers' little seaside house will be nice and clean, meals prepared, and little Harry well cared for, right? But Britta's idea of cooking is fiskpinnar (fish sticks) in the microwave; she leaves blonde hairballs between the sofa cushions, and has cute, broken English convos with Matt. The only thing Britta has in common with those super-nannies that all of Kali's friends seem to have, is that she'll probably never quit. And Harry adores her, so how could Kali possibly let her go?
