A love story for everyone who loves books. 'One of the loveliest, most exquisitely beautiful books I've read in a very long time ... I didn't just read the pages, I lived in them' Jennifer Niven, author of All the Bright Places Two teens find their way back to each other in a bookstore full of secrets and crushes, grief and hope - and letters hidden between the pages. Years ago, Rachel had a crush on Henry Jones. The day before she moved away, she tucked a love letter into his favourite book in his family's bookshop. She waited. But Henry never came. Now Rachel has returned to the city - and to the bookshop - to work alongside the boy she'd rather not see, if at all possible, for the rest of her life. But Rachel needs the distraction. Her brother drowned months ago, and she can't feel anything anymore. As Henry and Rachel work side by side - surrounded by books, watching love stories unfold, exchanging letters between the pages - they find hope in each other. Because life may be uncontrollable, even unbearable sometimes. But it's possible that words, and love, and second chances are enough.

'We've got at least seven hours to get what we want before the sun comes up.' School is over, and Lucy has the perfect way to celebrate: tonight she's going to find Shadow, the mysterious graffiti artist whose work appears all over the city. Somewhere in the glassy darkness, he's out there, spraying colour, birds and blue sky on the night. And Lucy knows that a guy who paints like Shadow is someone she could fall for - really fall for. The last person Lucy wants to spend this night with is Ed, the guy she's managed to avoid since punching him in the nose on the most awkward date of her life. But when Ed tells Lucy he knows where to find Shadow, the two of them are suddenly on an all-night search to places where Shadow's pieces of heartbreak and escape echo off the city walls. And what Lucy can't see is the one thing that's right before her eyes.

A Kirkus Reviews Best Book of the Year A Chicago Public Library Best of the Best of the Year "Profoundly moving . . . Will take your breath away." --Kathleen Glasgow, author of Girl in Pieces A stunningly gorgeous and deeply hopeful portrayal of living with mental illness and grief, from an exceptional new voice. Biz knows how to float. She has her people, her posse, her mom and the twins. She has Grace. And she has her dad, who tells her about the little kid she was, and who shouldn't be here but is. So Biz doesn't tell anyone anything. Not about her dark, runaway thoughts, not about kissing Grace or noticing Jasper, the new boy. And she doesn't tell anyone about her dad. Because her dad died when she was seven. And Biz knows how to float, right there on the surface--normal okay regular fine. But after what happens on the beach--first in the ocean, and then in the sand--the tethers that hold Biz steady come undone. Dad disappears and, with him, all comfort. It might be easier, better, sweeter to float all the way away? Or maybe stay a little longer, find her father, bring him back to her. Or maybe--maybe maybe maybe--there's a third way Biz just can't see yet. Debut author Helena Fox tells a story about love and grief, about inter-generational mental illness, and how living with it is both a bridge to someone loved and lost and, also, a chasm. She explores the hard and beautiful places loss can take us, and honors those who hold us tightly when the current wants to tug us out to sea.

Author: Parker Pascal
"The ocean swallows the bones ... "From the first time Will Cullen hears the phrase, he can't get it out of his head. On a Caribbean cruise with a wife he is unable to satisfy, Will notices the wandering eyes of other men coveting Tabby's body ... and gets an idea. "The ocean swallows the bones ..." Does it mean that the ocean is a place to drown your secrets? Will definitely has some of those. As he comes to terms with the truth behind his failing marriage, he reasons it might be possible to facilitate one passionate evening for Tabby while keeping his own hands clean ... and his secrets safe. But on the open sea, everyone is both predator and prey. As Will takes a new friend into his confidence and sets his course, he may have to face the ultimate truth about himself: What kind of man he is, and where exactly that puts him on the food chain. Because there's someone on board who's interested in more than a tropical tryst. Someone looking not just for a beautiful woman, but a beautiful woman on the arm of a weak man. Such men are what he lives for. Such men deserve to watch as their women are taken away. Such men are due for soul-crushing debasement. If Will lets his wife fall into the arms of such a monster, the reckoning is going to be fast ... vicious ...Brutal. Can Will weather the storm? Are there blue skies on the other side? Or are some trenches in the blue sea too dark and deep to ever escape? Set sail in this short novel (47,000 words) of humiliation on the high seas.
