Through Glass by Sari Wilson
Girl Through Glass
is a dark and haunting literary debut novel by former ballerina and Pushcart
Prize nominee Sari Wilson, following a young girl through the cutthroat world of
New York City ballet. A story of obsession and the quest for perfection, trust
and betrayal, beauty and lost innocence, Girl Through Glass illuminates
the costs and privileges of ambition and excellence, and whether the sacrifices
we make for an ideal destroy—or save—us.
William Shakespeare's birthday (and
the day of his death) is April 23rd. In honor of his birth and passing,
celebrate the Bard and his contribution to literature with I, Iago, an
ingenious, brilliantly crafted novel that allows one of literature's greatest
villains—the deceitful schemer Iago, from the Bard's immortal tragedy,
Othello—to take center stage in order to reveal his "true" motivations.
This is Iago as you've never known him, his past and influences breathtakingly
illuminated, in a fictional reexamination that explores the eternal question: is
true evil the result of nature versus nurture ... or something even more
green—Jones is making sure that our planet and our people will not just survive
but also thrive in a clean-energy economy." —Leonardo
A New York Times bestseller, The Green
Collar Economy by award-winning human rights activist and environmental
leader Van Jones delivers a much-needed economic and environmental solution to
today's two most critical problems.
From Avon Books: It's been centuries since the
Norseman Sigurd Sigurdsson was turned into a Vangel—a Viking Vampire Angel—as
punishment for his sin of envy, but he's still getting the hang of having fangs
that get in the way when seducing women. Slaying demon vampires known as
Lucipires and using his healing gifts as a cancer research doctor, Sigurd is
sent to Florida's Grand Keys Island as a resident physician ... where he
encounters a sinfully beautiful woman.
In Water, esteemed journalist Steven Solomon
describes a terrifying—and all too real—world in which access to fresh water has
replaced oil as the primary cause of global conflicts that increasingly emanate
from drought-ridden, overpopulated areas of the world. Meticulously researched
and undeniably prescient, Water is a stunningly clear-eyed action
statement on what Robert F Kennedy, Jr. calls "the biggest environmental and
political challenge of our time."
The adventure begins
in this exciting new chapter book series, complete with a do-it-yourself science
experiment! When a four-inch-tall alien crash-lands through Zack McGee's bedroom
window, Zack is sure he's about to become the first victim in a new War of the
Worlds. But when the alien turns out to have weapons that are more ticklish than
terrifying, Zack realizes that rather than protect the world from the alien it's
up to him to protect the alien in his pocket from the world.
