The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden  
The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden
by Jonas Jonasson

Jonas Jonasson's picaresque tale of how one person's actions can have far-reaching—even global—consequences, written with the same light-hearted satirical voice as his bestselling debut novel, The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared.

On June 14th, 2007, the King and Prime Minister of Sweden went missing from a gala banquet at the Royal Castle. Later it was said that both had fallen ill: the truth is different. The real story starts much earlier, in 1961, with the birth of Nombeko Mayeki in a shack in Soweto. Nombeko was fated to grow up fast and die early in her poverty-stricken township. But Nombeko takes a different path. She finds work as a housecleaner and eventually makes her way up to the position of chief advisor, at the helm of one of the world's most secret projects.

Gallows Thief  
Gallows Thief
by Bernard Cornwell

The year is 1820. Rider Sandman, a hero of Waterloo, returns to London to wed his fiancée. But instead of settling down to fame and glory, he finds himself penniless in a country where high unemployment and social unrest rage, and where men—innocent or guilty—are hanged for the merest of crimes.

When he's offered a job as private investigator to re-open the case of a painter due to be hanged for a murder he didn't commit, Sandman readily accepts—as much for the money as for a chance to see justice done in a country gone to ruins....

GI Brides
by Duncan Barrett and Nuala Calvi

American soldiers stationed in the UK came away winning more than just a war, they also won the hearts of young women across Britain. At the end of World War II, more than 70,000 GI brides followed the men they'd married—men they barely knew—to begin a new life in the United States.

Fascinating and unforgettable, GI Brides pays homage to these brave women, propelled by love and hope, who embarked on an adventure that would change their lives.

Everything That Makes You  
Everything That Makes You
by Moriah McStay

Meet Fiona Doyle. The thick ridges of scar tissue on her face are from an accident twelve years ago. Fiona has notebooks with lyrics about her frustrations, her dreams, and her crush on uber-jock Trent McKinnon.

Meet Fi Doyle. Fi is the top-rated high school lacrosse player in the state, heading to Northwestern on a full ride. She's got more important things to deal with than her best friend, Trent McKinnon, who wants more ever since the kiss.

Everything That Makes You follows the same girl in two stories. Moving between them feels like a game, or a great song—exciting, unpredictable, and so compelling. In her daring debut novel, Moriah McStay gives us the opportunity to see what might have happened if things were different. Luck may determine our paths, but maybe it's who we are that determines our luck.
