<b>HAILED BY <em>O, THE OPRAH MAGAZINE</em>, AS “A TITLE TO PICK UP NOW!”</b><br /><br /><b>In Kristen Wolf’s audacious and timely fiction debut, an unusual girl in the heart of ancient Palestine escapes her life of oppression—undertakes an epic and dangerous journey—and struggles to accept her remarkable calling as a great spiritual leader. </b><br /><br /><b>Deeply emotional, provocative and edge-of-your-seat suspenseful, THE WAY transports readers to an exotic world brimming with mystery, betrayal, passion, unforgettable characters and jaw-dropping plot twists.</b><br /> <br />“Wow, is all I can say. This novel blew me away!”<br /><b>—Book Pleasures</b><br /><br />“I don’t think I could rave anymore about this book … truly one of a kind.”<br /><b>—Chick Lit Plus</b><br /><br />"This imaginative novel may make you a believer."<br /><em><b>—O, The Oprah Magazine </b></em><br /><br />“THE WAY is a daring and passionate debut from an author to watch in the future.”<br /><b>—Historical Novel Society</b><br /><br />“Respelendent writing.”<br /><b>—Minding Spot</b><br /><br />“…page turning and utterly creative.”<br /><b>—Maria’s Space</b><br /><br />Anna is a striking and spirited young girl living in ancient Palestine where being a daughter is a disappointment. While her father excitedly anticipates the birth of his first son, the invisible Anna endures a life of drudgery. One bright spot in her world is the crippled old woman living by the village well who declares that the headstrong girl possesses a powerful destiny. But before the elder can reveal her prophecy an unexpected tragedy strikes Anna's family and her father—dressing Anna as a boy—sells his daughter to a band of wandering shepherds.<br /><br />Abandoned and armed with only bravery and wits, Anna must learn to survive the harsh desert and unruly men. Yet just when she masters her bold life of disguise, she stumbles upon a den of mysterious caves and is captured by the secret band of women living inside. Unable to escape, Anna soon discovers that the sisterhood’s mystical teachings and miraculous healing abilities have forced her to question everything she’s been told to believe and—to her amazement—unleashed an astonishing power within her. <br /><br />But when violent enemies opposed to the women's ways threaten to destroy them, Anna vows to save her mentors and preserve their powerful wisdom. Forced again to leave home and loved ones behind, a transformed Anna returns to the world of men—as only she can—determined to unfold a daring and dangerous quest. Her final effort drives toward a gripping climax that pits the new leader against overwhelming forces and puts everything she’s become to the test.<br /><br /><em>Will she succeed and save all she loves… or be condemned?</em><br /><br /><b>Gorgeously written, cinematic in scope and utterly captivating, Anna’s bold journey of courage—and its startling revelations—will thrill and inspire readers everywhere.<br /><br /><b>PRAISE FOR THE WAY:</b><br /><br />"Highly descriptive settings, imaginative plot, and flowing script abound.”<br /><b>—Literary R & R</b><br /><br />“THE WAY challenges you to think beyond what you have learned… to expand your vision."<br /><b>—Library Girl Reads</b><br /><br />“… sure to be a book-club darling.”<br /><b>—Booklist</b><br /><br />“THE WAY is a magical, evocative first novel that I plan to buy a carton of to give to my family and friends.

<p style="text-align: center;"><strong>From <em>New York Times</em> bestselling author Melanie Dickerson comes a fresh reimagining of the classic Mulan tale in fifteenth century Lithuania where both love and war challenge the strongest of hearts.</strong></p><p>When Mulan takes her father’s place in battle against the besieging Teutonic Knights, she realizes she has been preparing for this journey her whole life—and that her life, and her mother’s, depends on her success. As the adopted daughter of poor parents, Mulan has little power in the world. If she can’t prove herself on the battlefield, she could face death—or, perhaps worse, marriage to the village butcher.</p><p>Disguised as a young man, Mulan meets the German duke’s son, Wolfgang, who is determined to save his people even if it means fighting against his own brother. Wolfgang is exasperated by the new soldier who seems to be one step away from disaster at all times—or showing him up in embarrassing ways.</p><p>From rivals to reluctant friends, Mulan and Wolfgang begin to share secrets. But war is an uncertain time and dreams can die as quickly as they are born. When Mulan receives word of danger back home, she must make the ultimate choice. Can she be the son her bitter father never had? Or will she become the strong young woman she was created to be?</p><p>“When it comes to happily-ever-afters, Melanie Dickerson is the undisputed queen of fairy-tale romance, and all I can say is—long live the queen!” —Julie Lessman, award-winning author</p>

<b>The <i>New York Times </i>Bestseller!<br /><br />“Absolutely riveting.” —<b>Alexandra Bracken</b>, #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>The Darkest Minds<br /></i><br />This vividly rendered novel reads like HBO’s <i>Game of Thrones</i> . . . if it were set in the Ottoman Empire. Ambitious in scope and intimate in execution, the story’s atmospheric setting is rife with political intrigue, with a deftly plotted narrative driven by fiercely passionate characters and a fearsome heroine. Fans of Victoria Aveyard’s THE RED QUEEN and Sabaa Tahir’s AN EMBER IN THE ASHES won’t want to miss this visceral, immersive, and mesmerizing novel, the first in the And I Darken series.</b><br /><br />NO ONE EXPECTS A PRINCESS TO BE BRUTAL. And Lada Dragwlya likes it that way. Ever since she and her gentle younger brother, Radu, were wrenched from their homeland of Wallachia and abandoned by their father to be raised in the Ottoman courts, Lada has known that being ruthless is the key to survival. She and Radu are doomed to act as pawns in a vicious game, an unseen sword hovering over their every move. For the lineage that makes them special also makes them targets.<br /><br />Lada despises the Ottomans and bides her time, planning her vengeance for the day when she can return to Wallachia and claim her birthright. Radu longs only for a place where he feels safe. And when they meet Mehmed, the defiant and lonely son of the sultan, who’s expected to rule a nation, Radu feels that he’s made a true friend—and Lada wonders if she’s finally found someone worthy of her passion.<br /><br />But Mehmed is heir to the very empire that Lada has sworn to fight against—and that Radu now considers home. Together, Lada, Radu, and Mehmed form a toxic triangle that strains the bonds of love and loyalty to the breaking point.<br /><br />From <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author Kiersten White comes the first book in a dark, sweeping new series in which heads will roll, bodies will be impaled . . . and hearts will be broken.<br /><br /><b>“A dark and twisty fantasy . . . think <i>Game of Thrones,</i> but with teens.”—<i>Seventeen</i></b><br />  <br /><b> “Sinister, suspenseful, and unapologetically feminist.”—<i>Buzzfeed</i></b><br />  <br /><b> “Will completely spin you into another time and place.”—<i>Bustle</i></b><br />  <br /><b> “Takes no prisoners, offering up brutal, emotional historical fiction.”—NPR.org</b><br /><br /><b>An ALA Rainbow List Top Ten Selection</b>

<p><strong>Longlisted for the National Book Award for Young People's Literature!</strong></p><p><strong>From the <em>New York Times </em>and <em>USA Today </em>bestselling author of the Shatter Me series comes a powerful, heartrending contemporary novel about</strong><strong> fear, first</strong><strong> love, and the devastating impact of prejudice.</strong></p><p>It’s 2002, a year after 9/11. It’s an extremely turbulent time politically, but especially so for someone like Shirin, a sixteen-year-old Muslim girl who’s tired of being stereotyped.</p><p>Shirin is never surprised by how horrible people can be. She’s tired of the rude stares, the degrading comments—even the physical violence—she endures as a result of her race, her religion, and the hijab she wears every day. So she’s built up protective walls and refuses to let anyone close enough to hurt her. Instead, she drowns her frustrations in music and spends her afternoons break-dancing with her brother.</p><p>But then she meets Ocean James. He’s the first person in forever who really seems to want to get to know Shirin. It terrifies her—they seem to come from two irreconcilable worlds—and Shirin has had her guard up for so long that she’s not sure she’ll ever be able to let it down.</p>
