No Mercy (Hardy Boys Casefiles #65, Operation Phoenix #2)

by Franklin W. Dixon

From the back of the book: A company of killers For Frank and Joe, a journey in search of justice has turned into a personal mission of revenge: Their intercontinental chase has led them from Kenya to Stockholm, Sweden. Target: Phoenix Enterprises, an international combine of supersmugglers that the Hardys hold responsible for their father's death. But the boys are just beginning to realize how powerful the group is. High-tech weaponry, terrorism, and human suffering are their stock-in-trade. Led on by a beautiful woman, pursued by a trained assassin, the Hardys find danger at every turn. But they'll take any road and any risk to expose the truth-even if it leads across Europe and into the heart of the deadly Phoenix maze. =============== From inside the book: LEAP OF FAITH Frank and Joe pulled themselves onto the hotel roof. "We'd better get out of here before the guys who just crashed into our room figure out where we've gone," Joe told his brother. Frank pointed toward a door. "That looks like the exit-" Suddenly they heard the sound of footsteps echoing up the stairs, heading for the roof. "Too late!" Joe cried. "They're already on the way up!" "Where do we go now?" Frank said. "That's the only way off the roof!" Joe looked desperately toward the roof of the next building, which looked to be from five to fifteen feet away. Frank and Joe exchanged glances. Could they make it to the other roof in a single jump? The sound of pounding footsteps from the stairwell told them that they had no choice. Moving as one; the brothers raced toward the edge of the roof-and leapt into space!

No More Magic

by Avi

I was just sitting there, looking at the moon, feeling warm and sleepy when I saw something going through the sky. Flying right across the moon was a bicycle! My bike! I could see it was green. And someone was riding it, like a witch on a broom. The person was all hunched over, not very big, with a long black-and-white checked cape flowing out behind. And the warlock--for that's who it was--had a three-cornered cap on, and from under that cap hung a long scarf, or maybe even a long braid. There was no question about it. That's exactly what I saw.

No One

by Rick Moody Gwenaelle Aubry Trista Selous

Cleaning up her father's home after his death, Gwenaëlle Aubry discovered a handwritten, autobiographical manuscript with a note on the cover: "to novelize." The title was The Melancholic Black Sheep, but the subtitle, An Inconvenient Specter, had been crossed out. The specter? Her father's disabling bipolar disorder. Aubry had long known that she wanted to write about her father; his death, and his words, gave her the opportunity to explain his many absences - even while he was physically present - and to sculpt her memory of him. No One is a fictional memoir in dictionary form that investigates the many men behind the masks, and a unified portrait evolves. "A" describes her father's adopted persona as Antonin Artaud, the poet/playwright; "B" is for James Bond; and, finally, "Z" is for Zelig, the Woody Allen character who could transform his appearance to that of the people around him. Letter by letter, Aubry gives shape and meaning to the father who had long disappeared from her view.The whole is a beautifully written, vivid exploration of a particular experience of mental illness and what it can reveal more generally about human experience.

No One is Here Except All of Us

by Ramona Ausubel

In 1939, the families in a remote Jewish village in Romania feel the war close in on them. Their tribe has moved and escaped for thousands of years- across oceans, deserts, and mountains-but now, it seems, there is nowhere else to go. Danger is imminent in every direction, yet the territory of imagination and belief is limitless. At the suggestion of an eleven-year-old girl and a mysterious stranger who has washed up on the riverbank, the villagers decide to reinvent the world: deny any relationship with the known and start over from scratch. Destiny is unwritten. Time and history are forgotten. Jobs, husbands, a child, are reassigned. And for years, there is boundless hope. But the real world continues to unfold alongside the imagined one, eventually overtaking it, and soon our narrator-the girl, grown into a young mother-must flee her village, move from one world to the next, to find her husband and save her children, and propel them toward a real and hopeful future. A beguiling, imaginative, inspiring story about the bigness of being alive as an individual, as a member of a tribe, and as a participant in history, No One Is Here Except All Of Us explores how we use storytelling to survive and shape our own truths. It marks the arrival of a major new literary talent.
