Elizabeth Gilbert
Title: 
Eat, Pray, Love

By 30, Elizabeth Gilbert had everything a modern, educated, ambitious American woman was supposed to want - except happiness. She went through a divorce, a crushing depression, another failed love and the complete eradication of everything she ever thought she was supposed to be. To recover from all of this, Gilbert took a radical step. In order to give herself the time and space to find out who she really was and what she really wanted, she got rid of her belongings, quit her job, left her loved ones behind and undertook a year-long journey around the world, all alone. This book is the chronicle of that year. Read more about Russell Readers - Eat, Pray, Love

Peter Houghton, an alienated teen who has been bullied for years by the popular crowd, brings weapons to his high school in Sterling, N.H., one day and opens fire, killing 10 people.
