DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

From acclaimed author Phoebe North comes a riveting, unexpected, and beautiful contemporary novel about a girl whose brother mysteriously disappears, the family and friends he leaves behind, and the stories—real and imagined—that they tell themselves to fill the empty space. From the moment that Annie was born, she and her older brother, Jamie, were inseparable. Alike in almost every way, they promised to always take care of each other while facing the challenges of growing up different in suburban America. And when life became too much for them, they created their own space in the woods behind their house: a fantasy world, called Gumlea, where no one else could find them. And it was enough, for a while. But then came middle school, when Jamie grew dark and distant. He found new friends, a girlfriend, and a life away from Annie and Gumlea. Soon it was as if she hardly knew the brother who was her other half. And then, one day, he disappears. Annie, her family, and the entire community are devastated. And as the days turn into months turn into years, everyone begins to accept that Jamie is gone for good. Everyone, that is, except Annie, who believes that Jamie, somehow, has entered Gumlea, and who believes that she’s the only one who can bring him back. But as Annie searches for answers and finds a new relationship with a girl she did not expect, she makes startling discoveries about her brother’s disappearance—and has to decide how much of herself she’s willing to give up in order to keep hope alive.

#1 SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE BESTSELLER • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE “A picaresque, swashbuckling adventure.”—The Washington Post Book World They’re an odd pair, to be sure: pale, rail-thin, black-clad Zelikman, a moody, itinerant physician fond of jaunty headgear, and ex-soldier Amram, a gray-haired giant of a man as quick with a razor-tongued witticism as with a sharpened battle-ax. Brothers under the skin, comrades in arms, they make their rootless way through the Caucasus Mountains, circa a.d. 950, living as they please and surviving however they can—as blades and thieves for hire and as practiced bamboozlers, cheerfully separating the gullible from their money. But when they are dragooned into service as escorts and defenders to a prince of the Khazar Empire, they soon find themselves the half-willing generals in a full-scale revolution—on a road paved with warriors and whores, evil emperors and extraordinary elephants, secrets, swordplay, and such stuff as the grandest adventures are made of. Praise for Gentlemen of the Road “Within a few pages I was happily tangled in [Chabon’s] net of finely filigreed language, seduced by an old-school-style swashbuckling quest . . . laced with surprises and humor.”—San Francisco Chronicle “[Chabon] is probably the premiere prose stylist—the Updike—of his generation.”—Time “The action is intricate and exuberant. . . . It’s hard to resist its gathering momentum, not to mention the sheer headlong pleasure of Chabon’s language.”—The New York Times Book Review “[A] wild, wild adventure . . . abounds with lush language . . .

But catching your boyfriend cheating on you with his assistant? Even clichés sting. But this is Everly’s year! She won’t let her anxiety hold her back. She’ll pitch her podcast idea to her boss. There’s just one problem. Her boss, Chris, is very cute. (Of course). Also, he's extremely distant (which means he hates her, right? Or is that the anxiety talking)? And, Stacey the DJ didn’t mute the mic during Everly’s rant about Simon the Snake (syn: Cheating Ex). That’s three problems. Suddenly, people are lining up to date her, Bachelorette-style, fans are voting (Reminder: never leave house again), and her interest in Chris might be a two-way street. It’s a lot for a woman who could gold medal in people-avoidance. She’s going to have to fake it ‘till she makes it to get through all of this. Perhaps she’ll make a list: The Ten Rules for Faking It.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Thank you for your interest in DARE HUNTER. If you tend to read aloud make sure there are no children within earshot for they will never sleep again, at least not soundly. I warned you. Please note, this is not a novel of horror, but it is filled with horrific brutality. The idea of this novel is that He is not writing to you but reading to you. Now, once you turn this page, you will be sunk into the mind of Buchannon Dare, his mind slowly tormented and tortured, as he dishes out the same torment in a rampage of revenge. He takes a stand for the victims, the little guys who can't defend themselves, those who have been raped, others taken advantage of, and those too innocent to have been abused. He never wanted for anything, he just felt his God turned his back on him, and he could not care less. He is by no means a bad guy, just hunting for the worst of them and giving them what they deserve besides a prison cell. Once trapped by him, they are subjected to the cruelty spilling forth from the prison of our hero's mind. I give you fair warning again before you join him on this journey, for it gets deeper than my mind can even write or describe to you. Put on your seat belt and follow him into a dark forest of your own imagination, my words holding your hand. I did what I must; you do what you must. So, either put me in the freezer or toss me in the trash and keep your sanity; for this ride with me is fucking crazy. Ho hum, seat belt not on yet? Listen and listen close, dammit! Do you see the needle? When was the last time you saw one? It is so skinny, so fragile, and yet so sharp and bloodthirsty by mistake. That was my mind writing this. Want to peek through its eye? I don't think you do; for in that tiny hole, you will find such terror. That was the eye of my needle; my mind. You want no part of it I assure you. You know what? Come on in any way, they are waiting for you. I know you want to do it. Make your mind a thread and push it through please, I beg you. Now you have it, a taste like a lick of salt upon your palate. Now read this novel, I DARE you!
