The New Girl

The New Girl

#1 New York Times Bestseller - #1 USA Today Bestseller - #1 Wall Street Journal Bestseller From #1 New York Times bestselling author Daniel Silva, this summer's hottest thriller. Now you see her. Now you don't. THE NEW GIRL. A new thriller of deception, betrayal, and vengeance. She was covered from head to toe in expensive wool and plaid, the sort of stuff one saw at the Burberry boutique in Harrods. She carried a leather bookbag rather than a nylon backpack. Her patent leather ballet slippers were glossy and bright. She was proper, the new girl, modest. But there was something else about her ... At an exclusive private school in Switzerland, mystery surrounds the identity of the beautiful raven-haired girl who arrives each morning in a motorcade fit for a head of state. She is said to be the daughter of a wealthy international businessman. In truth, her father is Khalid bin Mohammed, the much-maligned crown prince of Saudi Arabia. Once celebrated for his daring social and religious reforms, he is now reviled for his role in the murder of a dissident journalist. And when his only child is brutally kidnapped, he turns to the one man he can trust to find her before it is too late. What's done cannot be undone ... Gabriel Allon, the legendary chief of Israeli intelligence, has spent most of his life fighting terrorists, including the murderous jihadists financed by Saudi Arabia. Prince Khalid--or KBM, as he is known--has pledged to finally break the bond between the Kingdom and radical Islam. For that reason alone, Gabriel regards him as a valuable if flawed partner. Together they will become unlikely allies in a deadly secret war for control of the Middle East. The life of a child, and the throne of Saudi Arabia, hang in the balance. Both men have made their share of enemies. And both have everything to lose. Filled with dark humor, breathtaking twists of plot, and an unforgettable cast of characters, The New Girl is both a thrilling, page-turning tale of entertain...

Mrs. Everything

Mrs. Everything

In this instant New York Times bestseller and "multigenerational narrative that's nothing short of brilliant" ( People ), two sisters' lives from the 1950s to the present are explored as they struggle to find their places--and be true to themselves--in a rapidly evolving world from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Weiner. Jo and Bethie Kaufman were born into a world full of promise. Growing up in 1950s Detroit, they live in a perfect "Dick and Jane" house, where their roles in the family are clearly defined. Jo is the tomboy, the bookish rebel with a passion to make the world more fair; Bethie is the pretty, feminine good girl, a would-be star who enjoys the power her beauty confers and dreams of a traditional life. But the truth ends up looking different from what the girls imagined. Jo and Bethie survive traumas and tragedies. As their lives unfold against the background of free love and Vietnam, Woodstock and women's lib, Bethie becomes an adventure-loving wild child who dives headlong into the counterculture and is up for anything (except settling down). Meanwhile, Jo becomes a proper young mother in Connecticut, a witness to the changing world instead of a participant. Neither woman inhabits the world she dreams of, nor has a life that feels authentic or brings her joy. Is it too late for the women to finally stake a claim on happily ever after? In "her most sprawling and intensely personal novel to date" ( Entertainment Weekly ), Jennifer Weiner tells a "simply unputdownable" ( Good Housekeeping ) story of two sisters who, with their different dreams and different paths, offer answers to the question: How should a woman be in the world?

You and Everything After

You and Everything After

I'm that teenaged girl who has MS. You haven't met me, but you've seen me around. You probably know my sister. We're twins, and she's the pretty one.

I'm leaving that girl behind. College is all about new beginnings. So from now on-I'm just Cass. And the rest...it isn't written yet. And no one else gets to write my story for me. -------- "Tyson Preeter doesn't do can't." That's exactly what I want people to think when they see me. I am strong, invincible, confident, intelligent-arrogant. I'm the man who always finds a way around, over and through-until there's nothing left. Since losing my ability to walk six years ago, I've relearned life. I don't need sympathy. I don't want charity. And I don't do love. It's better this way, saves my disappointments for me, and me alone, and it saves my strength for everything I want. But Cass Owens is about to wreck everything. She's about to steal all of my strength away from me, because she needs it more. She's about to break all of my rules, and break down all of my walls. She's about to own me...completely. And I'm about to let her. * This is the second book in the Falling Series. Book 1, This Is Falling, is out now. Each book can be read as a standalone and will focus on a different couple.

Raising A Rare Girl

Raising A Rare Girl

Award-winning writer Heather Lanier's memoir about raising a child with a rare syndrome, defying the tyranny of normal, and embracing parenthood as a spiritual practice that breaks us open in the best of ways.Like many women of her generation, writer Heather Lanier did everything by the book when she was expecting her first child. She ate organic foods, recited affirmations and drew up a birth plan for an unmedicated labour in the hopes that she could create a SuperBaby, an ultra-healthy human destined for a high-achieving future.But her daughter Fiona challenged all of Lanier's preconceptions. Born with an ultra-rare syndrome known as Wolf-Hirschhorn, Fiona received a daunting prognosis: she would experience significant developmental delays and might not reach her second birthday. Not only had Lanier failed to produce a SuperBaby, she now fiercely loved a child that the world would sometimes reject. The diagnosis obliterated Lanier's perfectionist tendencies, along with her most closely held beliefs about certainty, vulnerability and love.With tiny bits of mozzarella cheese, a walker rolled to library story time, a talking iPad app and a whole lot of rock and reggae, mother and daughter spend their days doing whatever it takes to give Fiona nourishment, movement, and language. They also confront society's attitudes toward disability and the often cruel assumptions made about Fiona's worth. Lanier realises the biggest question is not, Will my daughter walk or talk? but, How can I best love my girl, just as she is?Loving Fiona opens Lanier up to new understandings of what it means to be human, what it takes to be a mother, and above all, the aching joy and wonder that come from embracing the unique life of her rare girl.

The Executive's Guide to Fighting Like a Girl

The Executive's Guide to Fighting Like a Girl

Ten irreverent, politically incorrect, surefire, totally vital rules for rising to the top of any modern organization. This may come as a total surprise that despite what some would have you believe, girls fight differently than boys do. Young boys tend to settle disagreements by simply walking up and thumping the offending party. In today's world this is usually followed immediately by rounds of scolding by their female teachers telling them that "nice" boys don't fight. What the teachers really mean to say is that "nice" boys should not be physically violent but fight like girls. As males mature, they are forced to abandon their natural inclinations. This externally enforced repression of the natural urge to thump some bastard who so richly deserves it, is the chief cause of things like football and mass murder. Girls grow up learning to fight in much more clever ways. Girls learn that destroying an opponent through rumor and gossip is much more effective and much less dangerous than physical confrontation. It can even be enjoyed as a group activity. Why risk direct confrontation when a good rumor can socially destroy your opponent? Boys, of course, tend to be clueless. With the increasing number of women in the workforce, it has become vital for an aspiring male executive to understand how to fight like a girl. This short guide will teach you how to defend yourself from the attacks of your female co-workers and give you the tools to destroy your unsuspecting competitors. Pay attention and by the end of the book you will have everything you need to claw your way to the top without breaking a finger nail. "Simply the most important management book you can read in one sitting."
