    We used to live in a world of magic . . .

    For Alice, life as a teenager is hard enough without turning into a supernatural herald of destruction.

    Wrong.

    They can.

  • “A DELICIOUS HIGH-STAKES ADVENTURE.” –PEOPLE MAGAZINE

    Perfect for fans of Victoria Aveyard and Holly Black, The Kinder Poison is an enthralling fantasy adventure that follows a teenage girl chosen to be the human sacrifice in a deadly game between three heirs who will do anything for the crown.

    Zahru has long dreamed of leaving the kingdom of Orkena and having the kinds of adventures she’s only ever heard about in stories. But as a lowly Whisperer, her power to commune with animals means that her place is serving in the royal stables until the day her magic runs dry.

    All that changes when the ailing ruler invokes the Crossing. A death-defying race across the desert, in which the first of his heirs to finish–and take the life of a human sacrifice at the journey’s end–will ascend to the throne. With all of the kingdom abuzz, Zahru leaps at the chance to change her fate if just for a night by sneaking into the palace for a taste of the revelry. But the minor indiscretion turns into a deadly mistake when she gets caught up in a feud between the heirs and is forced to become the Crossing’s human sacrifice.

    Now Zahru’s only hope for survival hinges on the impossible: somehow figuring out how to overcome the most dangerous people in the world.

  • Nirmala and Normala (1969-2014)

    “Why isn’t life like the movie? For that matter, why aren’t movie like your life?
    Nirmala and Normala are twins separated at birth. *dramatic music*
    While one goes on to become a heroine, the other goes on to become a normal person. Yes, we know we should put ‘normal’ in quotes. We also know that we should issue a disclaimer that there’s no such thing as normal. But, really, let’s talk about that later.

    If you’ve ever sat through a movie wondering why in the world the heroine is playing with street children or why she seems so daft despite being Harvard-educated, you should listen to Nirmala’s story.

    As for Normala, well, we all know her, don’t we?”

  • Hedon

    “When Tara Mullick meets Jay Dhillon at a stifling society wedding, she forgets, for a moment, that she’s an awkward, chubby seventeen-year-old, dying to get out of her sparkly lehenga and back into the comfortable invisibility of an oversized T-shirt.
    And all Tara can do is carry him with her, a talisman, over half a decade spent oscillating between India and the American heartland.
    Laced with pop culture and a heady dose of decadence, this is the hedonistic experience of heedless millennials out in an ever-shrinking world and, within that world, the struggle to find a place or person to call home.”
