The Center of the World

by Jacqueline Sheehan

"An epic story of war and peace, love and fear, family and friendship."--Lori Nelson SpielmanIn New York Times bestselling author Jacqueline Sheehan's evocative and emotionally compelling novel, a mother and her adopted daughter each embark on a journey of self-discovery in the wake of a stunning revelation. How do you keep a secret so huge that it could devastate everyone you care about? For Kate Malloy, the answer is simple: one lie at a time. That's how she has protected her daughter for more than a dozen years, shielding her from a terrible truth. Sofia, a fifteen-year-old soccer star living in New England, believes she was born in Mexico and legally adopted by Kate. But a posthumous letter from her stepfather tells Sofia a different story--one of civil unrest and bloodshed, death-defying heroism and child-smuggling, harrowing sacrifice and desperate decisions. Sofia's trust in her mother is shattered. At last Kate must do what she knows is right--accompany Sofia back to Guatemala, the place where Kate found horror and heartache but also the greatest joy of her life. As mother and daughter confront the damage done by years of dangerous yet necessary deceptions, they discover how much love, hope, and happiness may still remain--if they have the courage to face their past. "A searing tale of love and desperate acts set against a backdrop of surreal beauty and unspeakable cruelty. Enthralling, exhilarating."--Suzanne Chazin "Page-turning storytelling . . . a deeply satisfying read. I loved this book."--Randy Susan Meyers "Sheehan's writing is lively and vivid and her feel for historical detail is fine."--The New York Times "Sheehan uses her skills as both a psychologist and a writer to create a solid, insightful story." --Kirkus Reviews

The Center of the World

by Andreas Steinhöfel

Seventeen-year-old Phil has felt like an outsider as long as he can remember. All Phil has ever known about his father is that he was Number Three on his mother's long list--third in a series of affairs that have set Phil's family even further apart from the critical townspeople across the river. As for his own sexuality, Phil doesn't care what the neighbors will think; he's just waiting for the right guy to come along. But Phil can't remain a bystander forever. Not when he's surrounded by his mother, Glass, who lives by her own rules and urges Phil to be equally strong; his sister, Dianne, who is abrupt and willful, with secrets to share; his uncle Gable, a restless mariner, defined by his scars; his best friend, Kat, who is generous but possessive. And finally, there is distant Nicholas, with whom Phil falls overwhelmingly in love--until he faces the ultimate betrayal and must finally find his worth . . . and place in the world.

The Centurions

by Robert D. Kaplan Xan Fielding Jean Larteguy

The military cult classic with resonance to the wars in Iraq and Vietnam -- now back in print. When The Centurions was first published in 1960, readers were riveted by the thrilling account of soldiers fighting for survival in hostile environments. They were equally transfixed by the chilling moral question the novel posed: how to fight when the "age of heroics is over." As relevant today as it was half a century ago, The Centurions is a gripping military adventure, an extended symposium on waging war in a new global order, and an essential investigation of the ethics of counterinsurgency. Featuring a foreword by renowned military expert Robert D. Kaplan, this important wartime novel will again spark debate about controversial tactics in hot spots around the world.
