<h2>She's a key witness in hiding. He's a hockey player in the room next door. Falling in love would be a dangerous move...but once he learns the truth, how can they resist?</h2><br /><br />Christiana's friend is dead…and she knows who did it. Now a key witness in a murder trial, she’s been hidden away in the one place no one will think to look for her: Eton Preparatory School for Boys.<br /><br />It’s a stupid move. Insane. But she doesn’t have a choice.<br />Instead of completing her senior year with the popular crowd, she’s being forced to hide in a school with exactly zero XX chromosomes. Even worse, she’s somehow supposed to act like the Neanderthals walking the halls.<br /><br />But then she meets the guys next door—the smoking-hot ones. And it doesn’t help that one in particular could unravel her in a heartbeat…and potentially blow her cover. How’s she supposed to resist Trey Calloway, the star hockey player who never backs down from a fight…and who never takes no for an answer?<br /><br />She’s supposed to be focused on staying safe, not on the guy who’s getting under her skin. <br />Her chilling past isn’t going to suddenly disappear.<br />In fact, it might just be catching up with her.<br /><br /><br /><b><i>If you're looking for a fast-paced thrill ride packed with drama, suspense, romance and unexpected twists, then See No Evil is just the book for you.</i></b> <br /><br /><b><u>Purchase your copy and escape into a forbidden romance like no other.</b></u> <br /><br /><br /><i>ALSO AVAILABLE: <br />Speak No Evil<br />Hear No Evil<br />

<b>In this captivating and lavishly illustrated young adult edition of her award-winning #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestseller, Laura Hillenbrand tells the story of a former Olympian's courage, cunning, and fortitude following his plane crash in enemy territory. This adaptation of <i>Unbroken</i> introduces a new generation to one of history's most thrilling survival epics. </b><br /><br />On a May afternoon in 1943, an American military plane crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared. It was that of a young lieutenant, the plane’s bombardier, who was struggling to a life raft and pulling himself aboard. So began one of the most extraordinary sagas of the Second World War.<br /> <br />The lieutenant’s name was Louis Zamperini. As a boy, he had been a clever delinquent, breaking into houses, brawling, and stealing. As a teenager, he had channeled his defiance into running, discovering a supreme talent that carried him to the Berlin Olympics. But when war came, the athlete became an airman, embarking on a journey that led to his doomed flight, a tiny raft, and a drift into the unknown.<br /> <br />Ahead of Zamperini lay thousands of miles of open ocean, leaping sharks, a sinking raft, thirst and starvation, enemy aircraft, and, beyond, a trial even greater. Driven to the limits of endurance, Zamperini would respond to desperation with ingenuity, suffering with hope and humor, brutality with rebellion. His fate, whether triumph or tragedy, would hang on the fraying wire of his will.<br /> <br />Featuring more than one hundred photographs plus an exclusive interview with Zamperini, this breathtaking odyssey—also captured on film by director Angelina Jolie—is a testament to the strength of the human spirit and the ability to endure against the unlikeliest of odds.<br /><br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>Unbroken<br /></i></b><br />"This adaptation of Hillenbrand's adult bestseller is highly dramatic and exciting, as well as painful to read as it lays bare man's hellish inhumanity to man."—<b><i>Booklist</i>, STARRED</b><br /><br />"This captivating book emphasizes the importance of determination, the will to survive against impossible odds, and support from family and friends. A strong, well-written work."—<b><i>SLJ<br /></i></b><br />"This fine adaptation ably brings an inspiring tale to young readers."—<i><b>Kirkus</b><br /></i>

Zack Hayes was taught that hard work pays off. He lives by that adage, working a part-time job, playing football and taking a full load of courses in the hope that his parents can stop working themselves to the bone. <br /><br />However, when things start to go wrong, Zack begins to believe that when you come from nothing, working hard doesn’t get you anywhere. <br /><br />Emma Wilson has spent her whole life hiding in the shadows because she isn’t who her parents wanted her to be—who her father wanted her to be. <br /><br />She loses herself in her studies and in the piles of romance books she devours. It isn’t until her roommate begins dating a football player that the worlds she’s worked so hard to separate inevitably collide.

Contains Active Table of Contents (HTML)  and include a bonus link to the free audio book.<br /><br />Miyamoto Musashi's Go Rin no Sho or the book of five rings, is considered a classic treatise on military strategy, much like Sun Tzu's The Art of War and Chanakya's Arthashastra.<br />The five "books" refer to the idea that there are different elements of battle, just as there are different physical elements in life, as described by Buddhism, Shinto, and other Eastern religions. Through the book Musashi defends his thesis: a man who conquers himself is ready to take it on on the world, should need arise.

<DIV>The Ivy League is a place where basketball is neither a pastime nor a profession. Instead, it is a true passion among players, coaches, and committed sports enthusiasts who share in its every success and setback. <i>Outside the Limelight</i> is the first book to look inside Ivy League basketball and at the boundless enthusiasm that defines it.<p>With painstaking reportage, Kathy Orton vividly captures the internal fervor of the personalities who champion their gameùall the triumphs and disappointments of an Ivy hoop season. <i>Scholarships for student athletes?</i> None, and this is the only Division I conference that does not offer them. <i>The TV spotlight?</i> It barely shines, despite the passion, talent, and commitment of the players. <i>Megadollar contracts from the NBA?</i> Rarely does a player receive an offer. These age-old institutions are better known for turning out presidents, not point guards, and CEOs and captains of industry, not centers on the court.<p>Orton weaves together the stories of coaches and players as they move from fall practice through an entire season and ahead to the NCAA tournament. From Harvard to Penn, Princeton to Cornell and beyond, playersùperhaps more accustomed to pomp and circumstanceùface leaky gyms, endure long bus rides, rigorous courseloads, and unbearable exam schedules. <i>Why?</i> Just to prove they can hang with the big boys despite juggling multiple non-athletic responsibilities? Maybe. <i>But more importantly, for the sincere love of the game.</i><p><i>Outside the Limelight</i> provides frontcourt vision for college basketball fans everywhere to achieve an appreciation of this captivating conference and for diehard enthusiasts to gain greater insight into what brings Ivy League basketball to center circle.</DIV>

Along with Sun Tzu's The Art of War, The Book of Five Rings is considered to be one of the most insightful texts on the subtle arts of confrontation and victory to emerge from Asia. Composed in 1643 by the famed duelist and undefeated samurai Miyamoto Musashi, The Book of Five Rings analyzes the process of struggle and mastery over conflict that underlies every level of human interaction. For Musashi, the way of the martial arts was a mastery of the mind rather than simply technical prowess—and it is this path to mastery that is the core teaching in The Book of Five Rings. This brilliant manifesto is written not only for martial artists but for anyone who wants to apply the timeless principles of this text to their life.
