Famously kidnapped at age six, Kick Lannigan captured America's hearts when she was rescued five years later. Now 21, she finds herself unexpectedly entangled in a missing child case that will put her talents to the test. Trained as a marksman, lock picker, escape artist, and bomb maker by her abductor, Kick could not return to the life of the average young girl after her release. So, in lieu of therapy, she mastered martial arts, boxing, and knife throwing and learned how to escape from the trunk of a car, jimmy a pair of handcuffs, and walk without making a sound — all before age 13. Kick has trained herself to be safe. But then two children go missing in three weeks. With lives hanging in the balance, Kick is set to be the crusader she has always imagined herself to be. A heart-stopping, entertaining thrill ride, One Kick (Simon & Schuster) announces the arrival of a blistering new series by Chelsea Cain, author of the critically acclaimed Archie Sheridan/Gretchen Lowell thrillers.

Publisher Comments:

Brothers and sisters Here at last is a light-hearted, free-spirited, groovy guide to the timeless hippie skills and activities that make the world a better place, one macrame belt at a time. In illustrated, easy-to-follow instructions, author Chelsea Cain — who grew up on an Iowa hippie commune — provides practical and playful know-how for the hippie and hippie-at-heart. Learn how to milk a goat, build a compost pile, play Kumbaya on the guitar, teach a dog how to catch a Frisbee, and get your file from the FBI. Discover the finer points of caring for a fern, choosing a mantra, organizing a protest, naming your hippie baby, and making sand candles as holiday gifts. Including primers on cooking, dressing, driving, telling time, dancing, and celebrating your birthday in classic hippie style, and a righteous appendix of essential hippie books, movies, and slang, The Hippie Handbook knows the score. Right on.

This book will definitely get you in touch with your "inner" hippie! Chelsea tells about her personal experience growing up (her parents did not name her for 6 wks until they "got to know her") and includes all the funny stuff you remember (or have heard of) from the hippie movement. Make some rightous food, decorate your humble abode, and get into the right (old) clothes! You can even give yourself a hippie name. Sorry folks, August Sunflower is already taken!

An amusing blend of fact and fiction. The blend of practical information and narratives from the life of a hold-over hippy makes for a very good (if short) read. A well lived life should include at least five topics contained within this book... Bonus points for drying banana peels.
