Kenny and Johnny were well known around the neighborhood as trouble. The boys spent much of their time stealing from stores, breaking into abandoned buildings and other forms of notorious entertainment. However, as do most forms of reputation, Ken-ny and Johnny's history caught with them. They were accused of a crime they did not commit. Kenny and Johnny knew they had to run. Kenny and Johnny heard some men talking about abandon houses being demolished to make way for a freeway. One of the men discussed how in a few of the houses being torn down, money was found. This piqued Kenny and Johnny's interest and soon they were on a bike trip in which they would never forget. Once Kenny and Johnny found "the house", they began their search for treasure. Their efforts were interrupted by a dangerous man, Jazz. He held the boys "hostage" until he could find a way to make his own escape. Jazz left the boys tied-up when Jazz went to steal a car for his get-away. Kenny and Johnny knew they would be dead when Jazz returned to the house. The boys broke free just as Jazz returned with the stolen car. They couldn't run, but hid in a secret room below the floor of the house. Jazz, beyond angry, doused the kitchen with gasoline, lit the house on fire and left. Johnny and Kenny struggled to escape the flames and barely fled to safety. The experience brought the boys to a personal crossroads. Kenny and Johnny drifted apart. Johnny eventually decided he could not live in the manner he and Kenny were accustomed. After contemplating suicide, Johnny turned his life around to one of positive direction. Over the years, Kenny continued in search of the "easy mark". Kenny's choice led to his death. Precious Little is a story of adventure, choices, and change. It demonstrates the possibility of change and the consequence of not taking the opportunity of the transformation.
For The Beatles, 1964 wasn't just a year—it was THE year. It saw the release of "A Hard Day's Night", a World Tour, and a tour of North America that officially sparked Beatlemania across the pond. They recorded "Beatles for Sale", their second LP in a year; performed The Beatles Christmas Show; and spent five weeks touring the United Kingdom while recording their second Christmas Fan Club record. John Lennon wrote "In His Own Write", won the prestigious Foyles Literary Award, and, with wife Cynthia and toddler in tow, explored Ireland and Tahiti while remodeling their new home. In the meantime, they did dozens of interviews, news conferences, radio shows, television specials, and photo shoots. 1964 was a career-defining year for The Beatles, and each moment is captured in vivid detail in Volume 4 of The John Lennon Series: Should Have Known Better!

With her frayed jeans and cascade of tousled dark hair, Lynn Shaw looks more like one of the teenage residents of Horizon House than their counselor. So it’s no wonder State Senator Erik Gunther mistakes her for one. Not that he exactly fits the description of a politician, with his movie-star looks and athletic build. Even Lynn, cynical, stubborn, and decidedly not looking for a relationship, can’t ignore her body’s response to the man. Allegedly, he’s come to defend Lynn from angry locals who don’t want her home for delinquent girls in their neighborhood. But as far as Lynn is concerned, he’s looking for a photo op, a chance to play the hero–the last thing either she or her troubled girls need. What they need is understanding. Lynn knows teenage rebellion all too well. And she knows firsthand its heartbreaking price. She won’t touch the good senator with a ten-foot pole only to watch him disappear once he gets what he wants. Unfortunately, Erik refuses to go away. The moment Erik looks into her emerald eyes, his interest in work falls into serious competition with his interest in Lynn Shaw. Her rejection of his assistance only intrigues him further. He is determined to know her–and to help her. If that means practically moving into Horizon House, so be it. But as the two engage in a battle of hearts, it becomes clear that Lynn is waging a private war of her own, against demons of the past–and against her overwhelming desire for the one man who may be worth fighting for.
