It's late summer 1793, and the streets of Philadelphia are abuzz with mosquitoes and rumors of fever. Down near the docks, many have taken ill, and the fatalities are mounting. Now they include Polly, the serving girl at the Cook Coffeehouse. But fourteen-year-old Mattie Cook doesn't get a moment to mourn the passing of her childhood playmate. New customers have overrun her family's coffee shop, located far from the mosquito-infested river, and Mattie's concerns of fever are all but overshadowed by dreams of growing her family's small business into a thriving enterprise. But when the fever begins to strike closer to home, Mattie's struggle to build a new life must give way to a new fight-the fight to stay alive.

<b>The story that inspired the major motion picture <i>Beautiful Boy</i> featuring Steve Carell and Timothée Chalamet<i>.</i></b><br /> <br /><b>This <i>New York Times </i>bestselling memoir of a young man’s addiction to methamphetamine tells a raw, harrowing, and ultimately hopeful tale of the road from relapse to recovery.</b><br /><br />Nic Sheff was drunk for the first time at age eleven. In the years that followed, he would regularly smoke pot, do cocaine and Ecstasy, and develop addictions to crystal meth and heroin. Even so, he felt like he would always be able to quit and put his life together whenever he needed to. It took a violent relapse one summer in California to convince him otherwise. In a voice that is raw and honest, Nic spares no detail in telling us the compelling, heartbreaking, and true story of his relapse and the road to recovery. As we watch Nic plunge into the mental and physical depths of drug addiction, he paints a picture for us of a person at odds with his past, with his family, with his substances, and with himself. It's a harrowing portrait—but not one without hope.

<p><b>A National Book Award Finalist!</b></p><p>In kindergarten, Jarrett Krosoczka's teacher asks him to draw his family, with a mommy and a daddy. But Jarrett's family is much more complicated than that. His mom is an addict, in and out of rehab, and in and out of Jarrett's life. His father is a mystery -- Jarrett doesn't know where to find him, or even what his name is. Jarrett lives with his grandparents -- two very loud, very loving, very opinionated people who had thought they were through with raising children until Jarrett came along.</p><p>Jarrett goes through his childhood trying to make his non-normal life as normal as possible, finding a way to express himself through drawing even as so little is being said to him about what's going on. Only as a teenager can Jarrett begin to piece together the truth of his family, reckoning with his mother and tracking down his father. </p><p><i>Hey, Kiddo</i> is a profoundly important memoir about growing up in a family grappling with addiction, and finding the art that helps you survive.</p>

Sam is living a life that is very different than the modern day fairy tale her younger self envisioned. She is neither a writer, an artist, nor a Peace Corp volunteer. Instead, she spends her days selling junk for her father’s flailing Ebay business. Her nights are spent trying to pretend that she is not nearing thirty and still living in her parents' house, sleeping in the same bed as she did in elementary school.<br /><br />Amidst an extremely dismal morning, Sam makes a startling discovery. When wearing a pair of antique glasses, Sam finds an odd, ruby-red, half-sphere blob. The orb appears to have mysteriously grown from the faded carpet of her back porch. Sam rushes to the door to inform Matty, her best friend, foodie neighbor, and to confirm her saneness.<br /><br />When Sam steps outside, she makes another startling discovery. She sees a path made up of hundreds of multi-colored orbs.<br /><br />Sam and Matty decide to follow the mysterious path and begin to encounter challenges testing them to their core. When they uncover who the creator of the orb trail is and learn what awaits them at the end of the path, they press through grueling tasks and, at times, disturbing punishments.<br /><br />Join Sam and Matty on this cross-country, cross-globe adventure as they follow the path of orbs and encounter evil descendants with uncanny senses, odd coffee house rituals, ancient riddles, soup stealers, pirate transfiguration, and grotesque, cupcake punishments.<br /><br />

<b>High School can be murder. Welcome to the prestigious Moonrise Academy where fate is never on your side. </b><br /><br />Marrying a slimy ass twice my age was out of the question, so I jumped at the chance to attend the exalted Moonrise Academy, even if it meant leaving everything behind. Friends. Family. My monster hunting side-gig. <br /><br />But getting beaten on my first day wasn’t part of the plan. Neither was looking like a fool in front of the hottest guys in school - three seniors who rule the school for that matter - but I’d done it all royally. <br /><br /><b>And now someone wants me dead. </b><br /><br />Hauling me out of bed at all hours and forcing me to fight in an underground fight ring is just the beginning. Students are showing up dead, and the killers won't stop until they've gotten what they want from me. I just have to figure out who is behind it all…before it’s too late and the next body they find is mine. <br /><br /><b>But there’s a small glitch… of course there is. </b><br /><br />Turns out this school isn’t exactly what I expected— they're on the hunt.<br /> <br /><br />If you like the magic of Sailor Moon, the bones of Sci-Fi, and the heart of Paranormal Academy, then you’ll devour Jesse Darkling’s sexy, imaginative series. <br /><br /><b>– Buy Half-Blood Hunted to leap into the darkly, addicting series today! –</b><br /><br /><i>Half-Blood Hunted is the first book in the Magic Moonrise Academy series, a medium-burn reverse harem, enemies to lovers romance featuring a kick-ass heroine with sass and three powerful gorgeous men who insist she belongs to them.</i>
