Eleanor and Park, which was a fantastic young adult novel. This new book, Landline, is geared to adults- it’s about and woman named Georgie and her struggling marriage to Neal. Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past, and has to decide if she wants to fix her marriage or if it would be better if they had never been together in the first place. They depth and description of the relationship in Eleanor and Park was fantastic so I’m hoping this one is just as amazing.
A beautiful and distinguished family.
A private island.
A brilliant, damaged girl; a passionate, political boy.
A group of four friends—the Liars—whose friendship turns destructive.
A revolution. An accident. A secret.
Lies upon lies.
We Were Liars is a modern, sophisticated suspense novel from National Book Award finalist and Printz Award honoree E. Lockhart.
And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE.
Doesn’t that make you want to read it??? Me too.
Picture Recap I, Picture Recap II and Our Book Review. Liane Moriary's new book, Big Little Lies comes out July 29, 2014. Big Little Lies is the intersection of three women’s lives: Madaline, the funny, 40 year old woman who is working through the fallout from her divorce, Celeste, the beautiful mom who seems to have everything lined up perfectly and Jane, the young mother who has been mistaken for the nanny. Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands, second wives, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandal, and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive.
Ruby must discover who's using her to implement twisted justice before she ends up swapping Valentino red for prison orange. With a gun named Smith, a talent for martial arts, and a boyfriend with eyes to die for, Ruby is ready to face the worst. And if a girl's forced to kill, won't the guilt sit more easily in a pair of Prada peep-toe pumps?
I heard about this book at the Storymakers 2014 Writer's Conference and I was swept up by this young author's story. Fifteen-year-old Maya Van Wagenen made the brave decision to spend a year following the advice of a 1950's popularity book, Betty Cornell's Teen Age Popularity Guide. She followed it step by step and didn't tell anyone what she was doing. This memoir is her story, which has already landed a movie deal. The real-life results are painful, funny, and include a wonderful and unexpected surprise—meeting and befriending Betty Cornell herself. Told with humor and grace, Maya’s journey offers readers of all ages a thoroughly contemporary example of kindness and self-confidence.
Here's the official trailer!! I can't wait to see it!
