<b>National bestseller</b><br /><b>2017 National Book Critics Circle (NBCC) Finalist<br /> ABA Indies Introduce Winter / Spring 2017 Selection<br /> Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Spring 2017 Selection<br /> ALA 2018 Notable Books Selection<br /><br /> An intimate and poignant graphic novel portraying one family’s journey from war-torn Vietnam, from debut author Thi Bui</b>.<br />  <br /> This beautifully illustrated and emotional story is an evocative memoir about the search for a better future and a longing for the past. Exploring the anguish of immigration and the lasting effects that displacement has on a child and her family, Bui documents the story of her family’s daring escape after the fall of South Vietnam in the 1970s, and the difficulties they faced building new lives for themselves.<br />  <br /> At the heart of Bui’s story is a universal struggle: While adjusting to life as a first-time mother, she ultimately discovers what it means to be a parent—the endless sacrifices, the unnoticed gestures, and the depths of unspoken love. Despite how impossible it seems to take on the simultaneous roles of both parent and child, Bui pushes through. With haunting, poetic writing and breathtaking art, she examines the strength of family, the importance of identity, and the meaning of home.<br />  <br /> In what Pulitzer Prize–winning novelist Viet Thanh Nguyen calls “a book to break your heart and heal it,” <i>The Best We Could Do</i> brings to life Thi Bui’s journey of understanding, and provides inspiration to all of those who search for a better future while longing for a simpler past.

"Call me Cal. I'm the little sh*t in the blue cutoff."<br /> -If this goes south, we're grounded for sure.<br /> -Are you positive your dad won't mind?<br /> -Yeah, I can do what I want.<br /><br />"Me and my crew have been together a long time. We make a good team."<br /><br />"But I'm the one that always seems to get in trouble."<br /> -Relax, we just need a few more pieces.<br /><br />"You might say I bring the trouble on myself." <br /><br />"But that's what being a kid is all about."<br /><br />"Well, I'm 23 now and not much has changed. But if it's not broke, don't fix it! I promised my parents I'd think about getting a job but tonight is the summer kickoff party. I'm hosting which means it's time to get going. THIS was something I'd always wanted to try..."<br /><br />SHAKE THE LAKE<br /><br />Cal and his best friends set out to evade adult responsibility and chase the endless summer across the map. They land in Lake Victoria, Arizona, a party oasis in heart of BRO culture. With some small town sensibility, the outsider crew unifies the lake’s wake scene and helps save a bullied marina from snobby yacht club encroachment by staging a mammoth, end-of-season music and water sports festival against the wishes of the town’s well-to-do and a pair of hard nosed park rangers. Navigating childhood friendships, growing pains, hard work, heartbreak and new love, Cal begins to come to terms with the meaning of growing up while staying young at heart in this fish out of water romantic comedy.

<p>We talk about feminism in the workplace and we talk about dating after #MeToo, but women's own patriarchal conditioning can be the hardest enemy to defeat. When it comes to our sex lives, few of us are free of niggling fears and body image insecurities. Rather than enjoying and exploring our bodies uninhibited, we worry about our bikini lines, bulging tummies, and whether we're doing it 'right'.</p><p>Flo broaches everything from faking it to consent, stress to kink, and how losing your virginity isn't so different to eating your first chocolate croissant. Her mission is to get more people talking openly about what they do and don't want from every romantic encounter.</p>

<b>The hilarious, take-no-prisoners novel about a cynical, sex-obsessed teenager's pining love for an intelligent girl—the basis for the major motion picture starring Michael Cera.</b><br /><br /><i>Youth in Revolt</i> is the journals of Nick Twisp, California's most precocious diarist, whose ongoing struggles to make sense out of high school, deal with his divorced parents, and lose his virginity result in his transformation from an unassuming fourteen-year-old to a modern youth in open revolt. As his family splinters, worlds collide, and the police block all routes out of town, Nick must cope with economic deprivation, homelessness, the gulag of the public schools, a competitive type-A father, murderous canines, and an inconvenient hair trigger on his erectile response—all while vying ardently for the affections of the beauteous Sheeni Saunders, teenage goddess, and ultimate intellectual goad.

Aya a décidé de devenir médecin et d'éviter la fameuse "série C" : Couture, Coiffure et Chasse au mari. Ses amies Bintou et Adjoua, elles, s'y voient déjà et ne pensent qu'à déjouer l'attention paternelle pour passer leurs soirées au Ça va chauffer et leurs nuits à "l'hôtel aux mille étoiles"... Avec une voix et un humour inédits, Aya raconte une Afrique bien vivante, loin des clichés.<br /><br />Ce livre regroupe les volumes 4 à 6 de la série Aya de Yopougon.
