Open Me has all the ingredients of a wonderfully inspirational book – a true story, told with honesty, openness, and vulnerability. Already I have been inspired to make changes in my life.”

Kim Chamberlain, author & speaker

Open Me is a radiant reflection of personal turmoil, sadness, and fear unearthed and transformed into courage, joy and profound love.

Linda Christina Beauregard, speaker, author – Gave Myself Cancer, I Can Take It Away! Alternatives Brought Me Back to Life

“We all have times in our lives when we feel off-kilter or off-track. We all suffer from self-doubt. Leanne has looked inside herself and examined her true purpose – such a journey takes courage and commitment and is not for the fainthearted. This book will help anyone who wants to do the same.”

Melissa Clark-Reynolds, Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit

Kaya Singer, artist, mentor, author – Wiser & Wilder


Alexi Littrell hasn’t told anyone what happened to her over the summer. Ashamed and embarrassed, she hides in her closet and compulsively scratches the back of her neck, trying to make the outside hurt more than the inside does.

When Bodee Lennox, the quiet and awkward boy next door, comes to live with the Littrells, Alexi discovers an unlikely friend in “the Kool-Aid Kid,” who has secrets of his own. As they lean on each other for support, Alexi gives him the strength to deal with his past, and Bodee helps her find the courage to finally face the truth.

Joining the ranks of modern myth busters, Dr. Sharon Moalem turns our current understanding of illness on its head and challenges us to fundamentally change the way we think about our bodies, our health, and our relationship to just about every other living thing on earth.

Through a fresh and engaging examination of our evolutionary history, Dr. Moalem reveals how many of the conditions that are diseases today actually gave our ancestors a leg up in the survival sweepstakes. But Survival of the Sickest doesn’t stop there. It goes on to demonstrate just how little modern medicine really understands about human health, and offers a new way of thinking that can help all of us live longer, healthier lives.
