<p><strong>#1 <em>New York Times</em> Bestseller!</strong></p><p><strong>In the second book of the Carve the Mark duology, globally bestselling <em>Divergent</em> author Veronica Roth reveals how Cyra and Akos fulfill their fates. <em>The Fates Divide</em> is a richly imagined tale of hope and resilience told in four stunning perspectives. </strong></p><p>The lives of Cyra Noavek and Akos Kereseth are ruled by their fates, spoken by the oracles at their births. The fates, once determined, are inescapable.</p><p>Akos is in love with Cyra, in spite of his fate: He will die in service to Cyra’s family. And when Cyra’s father, Lazmet Noavek—a soulless tyrant, thought to be dead—reclaims the Shotet throne, Akos believes his end is closer than ever.</p><p>As Lazmet ignites a barbaric war, Cyra and Akos are desperate to stop him at any cost.

<p><b>Madeleine L'Engle's ground-breaking science fiction and fantasy classic, soon to be a major motion picture.</b></p><p>It was a dark and stormy night; Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger.</p><p>"Wild nights are my glory," the unearthly stranger told them. "I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me sit down for a moment, and then I'll be on my way. Speaking of ways, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract."</p><p>A tesseract (in case the reader doesn't know) is a wrinkle in time. To tell more would rob the reader of the enjoyment of Miss L'Engle's unusual book. <i>A Wrinkle in Time</i>, winner of the Newbery Medal in 1963, is the story of the adventures in space and time of Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin O'Keefe (athlete, student, and one of the most popular boys in high school). They are in search of Meg's father, a scientist who disappeared while engaged in secret work for the government on the tesseract problem.</p><p><i>A Wrinkle in Time</i> is the winner of the 1963 Newbery Medal. It is the first book in The Time Quintet, which consists of <i>A Wrinkle in Time, A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Many Waters</i>, and <i>An Acceptable Time</i>.</p><p> <i>A Wrinkle in Time </i>is soon to be a movie from Disney, directed by Ava DuVernay, starring Storm Reid, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling.</p><p>This title has Common Core connections.</p><p><b>Books by Madeleine L'Engle</b><br /><b></b><br /><b>A Wrinkle in Time Quintet</b><br /><b></b><i>A Wrinkle in Time</i><br /><i>A Wind in the Door</i><br /><i>A Swiftly Tilting Planet</i><br /><i>Many Waters</i><br /><i>An Acceptable Time</i></p><p><i>A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel</i> by Madeleine L'Engle; adapted & illustrated by Hope Larson</p><p><i>Intergalactic P.S. 3</i> by Madeleine L'Engle; illustrated by Hope Larson: A standalone story set in the world of <i>A Wrinkle in Time</i>.</p><p><b>The Austin Family Chronicles</b><br /><i>Meet the Austins</i> (Volume 1) <br /><i>The Moon by Night</i> (Volume 2) <br /><i>The Young Unicorns</i> (Volume 3)<br /><i>A Ring of Endless Light </i>(Volume 4) A Newbery Honor book!<br /><i>Troubling a Star</i> (Volume 5)</p><p><b>The Polly O'Keefe books</b><br /><b></b><i>The Arm of the Starfish</i><br /><i>Dragons in the Waters</i><br /><i>A House Like a Lotus</i><br /><i></i><br /><i>And Both Were Young</i><br /><i></i><br /><i>Camilla</i><br /><i></i><br /><i>The Joys of Love</i></p>

<b>“Smart and funny, with characters so real and vulnerable, you want to send them care packages. I loved this book.” —Rainbow Rowell</b><BR> <BR>From debut author Mary H.K. Choi comes a compulsively readable novel that shows young love in all its awkward glory—perfect for fans of <i>Eleanor & Park </i>and <i>To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before</i>.<BR><BR>For Penny Lee high school was a total nonevent. Her friends were okay, her grades were fine, and while she somehow managed to land a boyfriend, he doesn’t actually know anything about her. When Penny heads to college in Austin, Texas, to learn how to become a writer, it’s seventy-nine miles and a zillion light years away from everything she can’t wait to leave behind.<BR> <BR>Sam’s stuck. Literally, figuratively, emotionally, financially. He works at a café and sleeps there too, on a mattress on the floor of an empty storage room upstairs. He knows that this is the god-awful chapter of his life that will serve as inspiration for when he’s a famous movie director but right this second the seventeen bucks in his checking account and his dying laptop are really testing him. <BR> <BR>When Sam and Penny cross paths it’s less meet-cute and more a collision of unbearable awkwardness. Still, they swap numbers and stay in touch—via text—and soon become digitally inseparable, sharing their deepest anxieties and secret dreams without the humiliating weirdness of having to <i>see</i> each other.
