36 Questions That Changed My Mind About You

by Vicki Grant

Inspired by the real psychology study popularized by the New York Times and its "Modern Love" column, this contemporary YA is perfect for fans of Eleanor and Park. Two random strangers. Two secrets. Thirty-six questions to make them fall in love. Hildy and Paul each have their own reasons for joining the university psychology study that asks the simple question: Can love be engineered? The study consists of 36 questions, ranging from "What is your most terrible memory?" to "When did you last sing to yourself?" By the time Hildy and Paul have made it to the end of the questionnaire, they've laughed and cried and lied and thrown things and run away and come back and driven each other almost crazy. They've also each discovered the painful secret the other was trying so hard to hide. But have they fallen in love? Told in the language of modern romance--texting, Q&A, IM--and punctuated by Paul's sketches, this clever high-concept YA is full of humor and heart. As soon as you've finished reading, you'll be searching for your own stranger to ask the 36 questions. Maybe you'll even fall in love. Rights have sold in 19 territories!

The 42nd Parallel: U. S. A. - The 42nd Parallel; 1919; The Big Money (U.S.A. Trilogy #1)

by John Dos Passos

With his U.S.A. trilogy, comprising THE 42nd PARALLEL, 1919, and THE BIG MONEY, John Dos Passos is said by many to have written the great American novel. While Fitzgerald and Hemingway were cultivating what Edmund Wilson once called their "own little corners," John Dos Passos was taking on the world. Counted as one of the best novels of the twentieth century by the Modern Library and by some of the finest writers working today, U.S.A. is a grand, kaleidoscopic portrait of a nation, buzzing with history and life on every page.The trilogy opens with THE 42nd PARALLEL, where we find a young country at the dawn of the twentieth century. Slowly, in stories artfully spliced together, the lives and fortunes of five characters unfold. Mac, Janey, Eleanor, Ward, and Charley are caught on the storm track of this parallel and blown New Yorkward. As their lives cross and double back again, the likes of Eugene Debs, Thomas Edison, and Andrew Carnegie make cameo appearances.

The 57 Lives of Alex Wayfare: A Novel

by M. G. Buehrlen

“Forget popular books like The Hunger Games and Twilight, M.G. Buehrlen’s debut novel is something that every young adult fan should read” (The Founding Fields). For as long as she can remember, seventeen-year-old Alex Wayfare has had visions of the past that seem so real they leave her breathless. For Alex’s visions actually wrench her from the present without warning, then return her with mysterious wounds and inexplicable aftereffects. Desperate for a normal life, Alex seeks to discover the meaning of her visions—and get rid of them. Then Alex meets an enigmatic stranger who tells her the truth: She is a Descender, capable of traveling back through her fifty-six past lives by accessing Limbo, the space between Life and Afterlife. Suddenly, descending back in time is irresistible to Alex, especially when the same mysterious boy with blue eyes keeps showing up in each of her past lives. But someone out there really doesn’t want Alex meddling with history. And they will stop at nothing to make sure her fifty-seventh life is her last . . . Filled with “beautiful prose, an intelligent plot, and a heroine as fabulous as she is unique,” The 57 Lives of Alex Wayfare is an adventure unlike any you’ve ever experienced before (C. J. Redwine, The Defiance Trilogy).

The 8: From London to Iraq on the Trail of Agatha Christie and theOrient Express

by Andrew Eames

In 1928, Agatha Christie, the world's most widely read author, was a thirty-something single mother. With her marriage to her first husband, Archie Christie, over, she decided to take a much needed holiday; the Caribbean had been her intended destination, but a conversation at a dinner party with a couple who had just returned from Iraq changed her mind. Five days later she was off on a completely different trajectory. Merging literary biography with travel adventure, and ancient history with contemporary world events, Andrew Eames tells a riveting tale and reveals fascinating and little-knowndetails en route in this exotic chapter in the life of Agatha Christie. His own trip from London to Baghdad--a journey much more difficult to make in 2002 with the political unrest in the Middle East and the war in Iraq, than it was in 1928--becomes ineluctably intertwined with Agatha's, and the people he meets could have stepped out of a mystery novel. Fans of Agatha Christie will delight in Eames' description of the places and events that appeared in andinfluenced her fiction--and armchair travelers will thrill in the exotica of the journey itself.
