Twelve-year-old Ryan Morrison is social kryptonite. He’s much too short and way too intelligent for any kid in his eighth grade to want him for a friend, and his freakishly small size attracts every bully in school. Unable to forge a healthy relationship with his troubled father who scoffs at Ryan’s dream of becoming a famous paleontologist who discovers an unknown species of dinosaur, Ryan feels miserably detached from school and family. Until, that is, the day Ryan unearths a seven-foot silver canister from a river bank and hides it in his bedroom. Of alien technology and design, it opens to reveal a perfectly preserved “fossil”—a 34,000 year-old Ice Age caveman. Incredibly, Bahntouka is very much alive. With Ryan’s help, he adjusts to modern life with curiosity and surprising intelligence. His gift for insight and gentle wisdom helps Ryan’s dysfunctional family begin to bond and heal, even as Bahntouka desperately yearns for his lost wife and baby, entombed in another silver canister somewhere in Oregon or Washington. But when the corrupt Marion County Sheriff and his drug-running accomplices threaten his new family in an escalating life-and-death struggle, Bahntouka reacts with extraordinary courage and sacrifice to rescue them, unleashing man-sized courage in the boy everybody calls Small Fry.

An intimate look at the life of Steve Jobs by the mother of his first child providing rare insight into Jobs's formative, lesser-known years Steve Jobs was a remarkable man who wanted to unify the world through technology. For him, the point was to set people free with tools to explore their own unique creativity. Chrisann Brennan knows this better than anyone. She met him in high school, at a time when Jobs was passionately aware that there was something much bigger to be had out of life, and that new kinds of revelations were within reach. The Bite in the Apple is the very human tale of Jobs's ascent and the toll it took, told from the author's unique perspective as his first girlfriend, co-parent, friend, and—like many others—object of his cruelty. Brennan writes with depth and breadth, and she doesn't buy into all the hype. She talks with passion about an idealistic young man who was driven to change the world, about a young father who denied his own child, and about a man who mistook power for love. Chrisann Brennan's intimate memoir provides the reader with a human dimension to Jobs' myth. Finally, a book that reveals a more real Steve Jobs.
