<strong>"If only ballerinas knew what vampire blood could do for their dancing."</strong><br /><br /><br />What would you do if an injury ripped your dreams right out from underneath you? And just when you finally accept that you won’t have the life you intended, an achingly beautiful vampire offers you exactly what you need—immortality. Only, that vampire is responsible for stealing you away to his manor outside Vienna, and happens to own Vienna’s hottest night club. Not only that, he’s so frustrating, you’re determined to hate him—until you don’t. Soon, you discover he’s in the middle of a war against some of his own kind (those who refuse to live by the vampire code), and you’re the catalyst that sends everything into overdrive. <br /><br />That’s Cece’s problem. <br /><br />Cece, once a prima ballerina for the National Ballet, is living in Vienna when she’s thrown into a seemingly impossible world: vampires are the makings of Rome’s famed gladiators, and night-walkers stalk the streets like zombies. Our story begins in the action, as reflections of the past emerge. Cece must make sense of her new surroundings in the only way she can—through her experience with ballet and the hurt it brought her. Anghor Manor is the setting for this tale, filled with vampires, ballet, and an unforgettable romance.

<b>THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER<br /><br />The extraordinary memoir of a peasant boy raised in rural Maoist China who was plucked from his village to study ballet and went on to become one of the greatest dancers of his generation. </b><br /><br />From a desperately poor village in northeast China, at age eleven, Li Cunxin was chosen by Madame Mao's cultural delegates to be taken from his rural home and brought to Beijing, where he would study ballet. In 1979, the young dancer arrived in Texas as part of a cultural exchange, only to fall in love with America-and with an American woman. Two years later, through a series of events worthy of the most exciting cloak-and-dagger fiction, he defected to the United States, where he quickly became known as one of the greatest ballet dancers in the world. This is his story, told in his own inimitable voice.<br /><br /><b>THE BASIS FOR A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE</b>

<b>The <i>New York Times </i>bestseller!<br /><br />Discover Aly Raisman's inspiring story of dedication, perseverance, and learning to think positive even in the toughest times on her path to gold medal success in two Olympic Games--and beyond.</b><br /> <br />Aly Raisman first stepped onto a gymnastics mat as a toddler in a "mommy & me" gymnastics class. No one could have predicted then that sixteen years later, she'd be standing on an Olympic podium, having achieved her dreams.<br /> <br />Aly's road to success was full of hard work, perseverance, and victories, but not without its hardships. Aly faced many obstacles, from naysayers who said she'd never make it in gymnastics to classmates who shamed her for her athletic body to a devastating betrayal of trust. Through it all, Aly surrounded herself with supportive family, friends, and teammates and found the inner strength to remain positive and believe in herself. Now, in her own words, Aly shows what it takes to be a champion on and off the floor, and takes readers on a behind-the-scenes journey before, during, and after her remarkable achievements in two Olympic Games--through her highest highs, lowest lows, and all the moments in between. <br /> <br />Honest and heartfelt, frank and funny, Aly's story is enhanced with never-before-published photos, excerpts from the personal journals she's kept since childhood that chronicle memorable moments with her teammates, and hard-won advice for readers striving to rise above challenges, learn to love themselves, and make their own dreams come true. <br />

FROM ENDZONE TO FRIENDZONE...<br /><br />Senior Nick Moody is the second string quarterback on Roosevelt High School’s championship football team.

Nick refuses to graduate without getting the girl or the glory.<br /><br />Mia Ashlock is the remarkably kind cheer captain.

After being humiliated in a very public dumping, her teammates decide to break her bad habit with a ban on boyfriends.<br /><br />When Nick sees a poster, advertising cheer tryouts, he has a crazy idea: quit football and become a cheerleader. It’s perfect! He can get close to Mia and steal the spotlight, using his true and hidden talent—gymnastics. Nick and Mia have instant chemistry, but it does him little good. If Mia’s zero dating rule weren’t bad enough, the team treats him less like boyfriend material and more like one of the girls.
