I Live a Life Like Yours by Jan Grue
A Memoir // Grue was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy at the age of three. Shifting between specific periods of his life-- his youth with his parents and sister in Norway; his years of study in Berkeley, St. Petersburg, and Amsterdam; and his current life as a professor, husband, and father. He intersperses these histories with elegant, astonishingly wise reflections on the world, social structures, disability, loss, relationships, and the body: In short, on what it means to be human.

And Then The Gray Heaven by RE Katz
Confronting the red tape of the hospital, the dissociation and cruelty of B's family, and the unimaginable void now at the center of their lives, Jules and new friend Theo embark on a road trip to bury two-thirds of B's ashes in the places they most belong. Along the way, Katz delves into their relationship and their life stories--Jules' rise from abandoned baby origins through the Florida foster care system, and B's artistic transformation, surrounded by kindred spirits who helped them realize it was possible to be regarded as a human and not as a body.

Convicted serial killer Benjamin Fisher has offered to lead San Bernardino detective Daniel Ellis to the isolated graves of his victims.

She still feels complicit in her father's crimes--Reni was the bait to lure unsuspecting women to their deaths. Ellis shares her obsession with the past and is convinced that his mother was one of Fisher's victims. As thirty years of bad memories flood back, it's only the beginning of a nightmare.
