The Chess Queen Enigma

The Chess Queen Enigma

Автор: Colleen Gleason

Evaline Stoker and Mina Holmes have reluctantly agreed to act as social chaperones and undercover bodyguards for Princess Lurelia of Betrovia, who has arrived in London to deliver a letter that details the secret location of an ancient chess queen that’s been missing for centuries. But when the letter—which will heal a centuries-old rift between England and the Betrovians—is stolen out from under Evaline and Mina’s watchful eyes, the two girls are forced into a highstakes race to ensure they find the chess queen before anyone else does. The Stoker and Holmes series is as culturally popular and compulsively readable as the Sherlock Holmes stories and Dracula were in the Victorian era.

All I Know Now: Wonderings and Reflections on Growing up Gracefully

Автор: Carrie Hope Fletcher

My name is Carrie and I’m twenty-two years old. Apparently that makes me an adult. Yikes. ‘hides stuffed animals. Anyhow, grown up or not, I did manage to make it through ‘the Teen Age’ more or less in one piece and, a few years ago, I started talking and writing online about some of the things I learnt back then… and a few things I’ve realised since. My daft videos and blogs about broken hearts, bullies and body image — among other things — seemed to help people, so I collected all those thoughts and bits of advice and ramblings into a book. This book. And gosh, isn’t it pretty? Go on, stroke it. You know you want to. I’m not an expert on «life» (things I am an expert on-, cake, Disney, making the perfect cuppa — that’s about it) but I think I do know a bit about what’s worrying you and maybe, with a little bit of luck, some of my stories will make you smile, make you think and, most of all, give you faith that it will all work out all right in the end. Because it will….

PROM GOER’S INTERSTELLAR

PROM GOER’S INTERSTELLAR

Автор: MCCOY, CHRIS

Part space adventure, part love story, and part rock’n’roll biopic, this interplanatary adventure oozes hilarity and fun. Just a few days before prom, Bennett pulls off something he never imagined possible: his dream girl Sophie agrees to be his date. Moments afterward, however, he watches Sophie get abducted by aliens in the middle of the New Mexico desert. Faced with a dateless prom and likely kidnapping charges, Bennett does the only logical thing he can think of: he hitches a ride into outer space with an alien rock band to get her back. Nothing is ruining his chance at dancing with Sophie at prom. Once the biggest rock gods in the galaxy, the Perfectly Reasonable have fallen from stardom to the one billion and sixteenth most popular group. Now they’re hellbent on regaining popularity through a series of high-profile shows, which doesn’t exactly expedite Bennett’s rescue mission. Can he navigate foreign concert venues, an extraterrestiral reality show, and the band’s outlandish…

Eleanor & Park

Eleanor & Park

Автор: Rainbow Rowel

Eleanor is the new girl in town, and with her chaotic family life, her mismatched clothes and unruly red hair, she couldn’t stick out more if she tried. Park is the boy at the back of the bus. Black T-shirts, headphones, head in a book — he thinks he’s made himself invisible. But not to Eleanor… never to Eleanor. Slowly, steadily, through late-night conversations and an ever-growing stack of mix tapes, Eleanor and Park fall for each other. They fall in love the way you do the first time, when you’re young, and you feel as if you have nothing and everything to lose.

The Heart of the World is a land in strife. For fifty years the Holy Empire of Mann, an empire and religion born from a nihilistic urban cult, has been conquering nation after nation. Their leader, Holy Matriarch Sasheen, ruthlessly maintains control through her Diplomats, priests trained as subtle predators. The Mercian Free Ports are the only confederacy yet to fall. Their only land link to the southern continent, a long and narrow isthmus, is protected by the city of Bar-Khos. For ten years now, the great southern walls of Bar-Khos have been besieged by the Imperial Fourth Army. Ash is a member of an elite group of assassins, the Roshun — who offer protection through the threat of vendetta. Forced by his ailing health to take on an apprentice, he chooses Nico, a young man living in the besieged city of Bar-Khos. At the time, Nico is hungry, desperate, and alone in a city that finds itself teetering on the brink. When the Holy Matriarch’s son deliberately murders a woman under…
