About this deal

I Have Something to Tell You is an inspiring, emotional, surprisingly candid journey from rural Michigan’s fishing holes to some of the most influential spaces in American politics.

I Have to Tell You Something is Zara Bas's first book of pieces written from the most tender depths of a healing heart exploring themes of love, loss, grief, loneliness and self-worth. Fish Camp was supposed to be a time to demonstrate my masculinity and my ability to “man up” (whatever that means). The show she was starring in at the time was promptly canceled, and Ellen struggled to find any work in Hollywood, just because she’d had the courage to come “out of the closet. Not only did it show me for the first time that there were other people like me out there, but the show had a huge audience!In the fall, we’d go to a farmstand and pick out buckets of apples for Mom to make pies and applesauce with, and we’d select our perfect pumpkins for carving. It will keep you guessing till the end' Sheila O'FlanaganWhen the bodies of wealthy matriarch Ursula Kennedy and her farmer husband Jimmy are pulled from the slurry pit on Glenbeg Farm, shock ricochets throughout the family and community. Famous people on television in Los Angeles or New York could be gay, but not an awkward kid from the Midwest who spent his Saturdays at the bowling alley and read books with a flashlight under the covers. While it might’ve not fully made me feel the things that I wanted to feel, but it helped me to understand and reflect upon my feelings. My parents run their own small landscaping business, and from the time I was about ten, I was helping out in some way.

As the snowplow truck finally reached our neighborhood to clear the roads, signaling that we’d probably have to go back to school the next day, we’d shout our displeasure from the frosted windows. There are plenty of professional males in books who manage to do their jobs, but almost every female lawyer, doctor, or police officer is distracted by romance. Seeing the gun cases set out on the picnic table made me nervous, and although my dad has gifted me a few guns for birthdays over the years, they remain in his safe back home. There was the time they almost started a forest fire because one of them had stepped on a ground nest of bees, gotten stung, and decided that they needed to go back to the scene of the crime with a gallon of gasoline and a blowtorch to seek revenge.

With incredible bravery, and the support of his loved ones, Chasten eventually came out—and when he did, he learned that being true to himself was the most rewarding journey of all.

At parent-teacher conferences, they’d say things like, “Well, he sure is… eccentric” or “You know, he’s just not like the other boys. A gripping whodunnit' Jeanine Cummins, author of American Dirt HOME IS WHERE THE SECRETS ARE BURIED 'Completely original . Some concepts could have been developed more, but I believe the author's intention was to leave it for the reader to interpret.I can’t understand why they do it, but then I look at the reviews on Goodreads and see that loads of people have given this five stars, so clearly there must be a market for these padded waffles. An interesting premise and the first 150 pages or so are very good as we gradually discover more about Edward and Vanessa’s marriage, and the possible suspect list grows as some of Vanessa’s secrets are revealed. Sometimes, rather than working on themselves, people will channel their anger and confusion into hurting others, even with small things like names. My parents had always encouraged me to be myself, but I knew that meant the version of myself that fit the norm.

m. to roll the dough out onto the counter and cover it to let it rise once more before the sticky buns were tossed into the oven as we opened presents around the tree.A lot of people back then (and, sadly, some people to this day) believe that being gay is a choice and that all LGBTQ+ people deserve to be mocked, harmed, or worse. Chasten's story is a testament to the mighty tools our personal struggles can bestow, and a timely example of how we might use those tools to help build a better, stronger, fairer future. I had no idea that just sixteen years after Ellen aired its first episode, I would be flying to Los Angeles to be on the other side of the audience, talking about the first version of this book, and reflecting on the fact that my husband had just finished a strong and groundbreaking campaign to be president of the United States of America.
