If you could steal things from dreams, what would you take? Ronan Lynch has secrets. Some he keeps from others. Some he keeps from himself. One secret: Ronan can bring things out of his dreams. And sometimes he’s not the only one who wants those things. Ronan is one of the raven boys — a group of friends, practically brothers, searching for a dead king named Glendower, who they think is hidden somewhere in the hills by their elite private school, Aglionby Academy. The path to Glendower has long lived as an undercurrent beneath town. But now, like Ronan’s secrets, it is beginning to rise to the surface — changing everything in its wake. Of THE RAVEN BOYS, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY wrote, “Maggie Stiefvater’s can’t-put-it-down paranormal adventure will leave you clamoring for book two.” Now the second book is here, with the same wild imagination, dark romance, and heart-stopping twists that only Maggie Stiefvater can conjure. Praise for THE DREAM THIEVES: * "Richly written and filled with figurative language...this story of secrets and dreams, of brothers and of all-too-real magic is an absolute marvel of imagination and an irresistible invitation to wonder." --BOOKLIST, starred review * "Mind-blowingly spectacular... Stiefvater's careful exploration of class and wealth and their limitations and opportunities astounds with its sensitivity and sophistication. The pace is electric, the prose marvelously sure-footed and strong, but it's the complicated characters...that meld magic and reality into an engrossing, believable whole." -- KIRKUS REVIEWS, starred review * "A paranormal thriller...this installment [is] more tense and foreboding than its predecessor–and every bit as gripping." -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, starred review * "A complex web of magical intrigue and heartstopping action." -- THE BULLETIN, starred review * "Readers who want a moody chill and appreciate an atmospheric turn of phrase will want to spread more time in Henrietta." -- SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL, starred review

The inspiring true story of America's Got Talent Top Five Finalist Mandy Harvey—a young woman who became deaf at age nineteen while pursuing a degree in music—and how she overcame adversity and found the courage to live out her dreams. When Mandy Harvey began her freshman year at Colorado State University, she could see her future coming together right before her eyes. A gifted musician with perfect pitch, she planned to get a music degree and pursue a career doing what she loved. But less than two months into her first semester, she noticed she was having trouble hearing her professors. In a matter of months, Mandy was profoundly deaf. With her dreams so completely crushed, Mandy dropped out of college and suffered a year of severe depression. But one day, things changed. Mandy’s father asked her to join him in their once favorite pastime—recording music together—and the result was stunningly beautiful. Mandy soon learned to sense the vibrations of the music through her bare feet on a stage floor and to watch visual cues from her live accompaniment. The result was that she now sings on key, on beat, and in time, performing jazz, ballads, and sultry blues around the country—and all the way to the final stage of America’s Got Talent. Full of inspiring wisdom and honest advice, Sensing the Rhythm is a deeply moving story about Mandy’s journey through profound loss, how she found hope and meaning in the face of adversity, and how she discovered a new sense of passion and joy.
My name is Rose, you figured it out already. This flight should have happened earlier, but I would always be late with reservations, or the rest of the airline tickets were too expensive. Now, I am finally flying. Finally all things came into place and the day came when I am going for that interview. I followed them quite actively for the past few years as a sports reporter. I decided it was time to witness the spectacle live, in front of 80,000 fans in one of the most beautiful stadiums of the world. My boss had already tried several times to get the interview, but stroke out every time. Now he wanted me to be the first journalist to get an exclusive interview with the billionaire, football club owner who had not given statements for 20 years. Since he bought the club that was small at that time, that man did not give any statements. I hope to soon be the one to know the reasons for his silence. I wonder how he in 20 years managed to transform a small club into a giant that plays Champions league semi-finals tonight.
There comes a time in every child's life when they are expected to grow up and put away their childish fantasies and beliefs. By the time children enter formal school, they are discouraged from using their imagination or believing in magic and miracles. The fairytales they once believed in are replaced with math and science. No longer are they encouraged to believe in Santa Clause or the Easter bunny. In teaching children that imagination and fantasy are childish activities that we must outgrow, we have created a people who find it difficult to have the kind of faith that moves mountains and allows one to walk on water. We find it difficult to understand that our realities are created within our own imagination and attitudes. Cinderella's Secret takes a look at some of the valuable life lessons that are contained in simple childish fairytales in hopes of helping adults rekindle their passion for finding happily-ever-after.
