Moving to King's Newton is a spur of the moment decision that introduces Ros to a whole new life. First she has to get along with grumpy Gloria the florist and her longstanding employee Alan - fun to be around but terribly bitchy. Then there's the local Lothario, currently in flagrante with Gloria despite her impending nuptials, always on the lookout for new conquests. And the short-tempered son up at the 'big house', whose ankle she manages to break within moments of their meeting...
Ever since her mother left a few years ago, Annie has felt like the odd one out in her family. Her dad and brother are practical and organised - they just don't understand the way she thinks, in lines and colour. Everywhere she turns, she feels like an outsider, even at school, so she's been reluctant to get close to anyone. When a "Ding-Dong-Ditch" attempt goes wrong, Annie finds herself stuck making amends with Gloria, the eccentric elderly lady she disturbed. As she begins to connect with Gloria and her weird little dog, it becomes clear that Gloria won't be able to live on her own for much longer. But it's this brief and important friendship that gives Annie the confidence to let people in, and see how rich life can be when you decide to make your own luck and chart your own path to happiness. In this heartwarming novel, acclaimed author Gillian McDunn shows us that even the most unexpected friendship has the power to change us forever.

From the author of the PEN/Faulkner Award–winning debut novel Preparation for the Next Life, a gripping, tender, unforgettable story about fathers and sons, regret and redemption Corey Goltz grows up in the working-class outskirts of Boston as the only child of Gloria, whose ambitions were derailed early but who has always given her son everything she can. Corey, restless, dreams of leaving home for a great adventure. Instead, when he is fifteen, the world comes crashing down upon him, when Gloria is diagnosed with ALS and, too late, his estranged father, Leonard—a man of great charisma but dubious moral character—reenters the picture. Determined to be his mother’s hero at any cost, Corey begins shouldering responsibility for her expensive medical care, pushing himself to his physical and emotional limits as her disease cruelly progresses. And as Leonard’s influence over Corey grows, Corey must dismantle the myth of his father’s genius and confront the evil that lurks beneath it. Gritty, visceral, and profoundly stirring, The War for Gloria tells the story of a young man, straddling childhood and adulthood, whose yearning to protect his mother requires him to risk destroying his father. An indelible work from a strikingly original voice in American fiction.
The highly successful 'Grumpies' return full of the Christmas spirit. So - 'tis the season to be jolly is it? Well, not in the household of the Grumpy Old Man it isn't. In the case of the GOM, 'tis the season to have to put up with even deeper layers of vexation than usual, and the only thing worth celebrating is that it looks as though you might after all be surviving to the end of what has been another crap year. Everything about Christmas gets up our snitches. Everything. From the breakfast telly presenters who tell us it's now just 120 shopping days to go, to the annual festive strike by airport baggage handlers. From office parties where drunken juniors have waited the whole year to tell you what 'the trouble with you is...', to parents videoing their precocious brats at the atrocious school nativity play where your kid is playing the part of the donkey's rear end. From the woman next door who drops in to show your wife the diamond ring her prat of a husband has bought her, to the 150th opportunity to see 'Whistle Down the Wind' on the telly. And speaking of wind, there's the festive Xmas turkey that tastes like blotting paper soaked in a puddle and sends your digestive system to hell. And how on earth are we really supposed to look happy when someone buys us a tie with a picture of xxxxing Santa on it? Eh?
Christmas and ice cream, a match made in Hamlet. Great Aunt Patti is dead. Gloria Watson would probably feel a little sadder at that news if she had known about Great Aunt Patti in the first place. Growing up an only child, all she had was her grandmother. After Nana's passing, Gloria thought she was the last one left in her family. Well, she is. Since Great Aunt Patti is dead and all. That's okay. The nice lawyer who wrote her a letter assured Gloria that her great aunt lived a long, happy life in a small town that Gloria has never heard of. And now, as her next of kin, everything she owned belongs to Gloria. Including a house. Which sounds like a godsend to Gloria, who is eager to start her dream business and could use the extra cash. Only there's a catch. Because of course there is. The house is hers--but only after she lives there for a year. One year in Hamlet and then Gloria will have enough money to follow her dream. Why not? It'll give her time to work on her flavors. And it wasn't like she had much going on for her in the city anyway. She's moved in by Thanksgiving, ready to spend the holidays in her new home. So what if her new neighbor is the hottest guy she's ever seen? Franklin is as grumpy as he is handsome, and he hates Christmas. Seriously. A year? Gloria will be lucky if she makes it to January. * Gloria is a small town Christmas romance set in Hamlet! It's not explicitly part of the Hamlet series and for two reasons: the timeline and how different in tone it's going to be compared to the other (darker, more suspenseful) books. Gloria will be a sweet, low-stakes, fluffy romance, similar to Hallmark Christmas movies, though it will feature characters and settings from the Hamlet books. You don't have to be familiar with those books to read this book--it's definitely a stand-alone--but it's also a bit of a prequel to that series, set a couple of years before the first Hamlet book Don't Trust Me.

Violet is back with a little bit of helpfulness and a whole lot of heart in this third book of the effervescent Violet Mackerel series. Violet is the smallest in her family, and has a special affinity for Small Things everywhere. So when she finds a tiny ladybug in the garden, she expects she knows how it feels. It probably has to go to bed before all the others, and whenever it finds out something interesting (like that your ears keep growing all your life even when you are old), the bigger ladybugs probably say they already knew. Violet wants to help the ladybug, so she names her Small Gloria, puts her in a jar, and feeds her cheese toast. And then Violet wakes up to a horrible surprise. But thankfully, even as Violet learns a hard lesson about natural habitats, she realizes how nice it is to share her own habitat with a big sister.
Vocal Projections: Voices in Documentary examines a previously neglected topic in the field of documentary studies: the political, aesthetic, and affective functions that voices assume. On topics ranging from the celebrity voice over to ventriloquism, from rockumentary screams to feminist vocal politics, these essays demonstrate myriad ways in which voices make documentary meaning beyond their expository, evidentiary and authenticating functions. The international range of contributors offers an innovative approach to the issues relating to voices in documentary. While taking account of the existing paradigm in documentary studies pioneered by Bill Nichols, in which voice is equated with political rhetoric and subjective representation, the contributors move into new territory, addressing current and emerging research in voice, sound, music and posthumanist studies.

In Brownsville’s twenty-one housing projects, the young cops and the teenagers who stand solemnly on the street corners are bitter and familiar enemies. The Ville, as the Brownsville–East New York section of Brooklyn is called by the locals, is one of the most dangerous places on earth—a place where homicide is a daily occurrence. Now, Greg Donaldson, a veteran urban reporter and a longtime teacher in Brooklyn’s toughest schools, evokes this landscape with stunning and frightening accuracy. The Ville follows a year in the life of two urban black males from opposite sides of the street. Gary Lemite, an enthusiastic young Housing police officer, charges recklessly into gunfire in pursuit of respect and promotion. Sharron Corley, a member of a gang called the LoLifes and the star of the Thomas Jefferson High School play, is also looking for respect as he tries to survive these streets. Brilliantly capturing the firestorm of violence that is destroying a generation, waged by teenagers who know at thirty yards the difference between a MAC-10 machine pistol and a .357 Magnum, The Ville is the story of our inner cities and the lives of the young men who remain trapped there. In the tradition of There Are No Children Here, Clockers, and Random Family, The Ville is a vivid and unforgettable contribution to our understanding of race and violence in America today.

...No. She stopped herself; Tashy was wrong. Why do I even feel bad about this? She took a deep breath and looked back out across the dusty paddock from where she had just trudged home. Tashy just wasn't the friend for her, and that's what it was—her high and hopeful expectations had been crushed again. Oh, she had wanted to make them work so badly, and now...It's not my parents' fault, she told herself in an attempt to cool the heartsick feeling that surged through her veins. . .It was hard to accept that this was it; another dream was shattered, another chance for a friendship lost. But maybe it wasn't so bad this time; maybe Tashy was never meant to be her friend. Maybe it was all for the better... Fifteen-year-old Irene Anderson just wants to fit in, but somehow, something always seems to get in the way. Her best friend, Gloria, lives miles away across the ocean. When Irene's neighbour, Sharon, moves to the city for Uni, it's like she suddenly becomes a different person. Will their friendship ever be the same again? Then there's Tristan Witmer, her little preschool-age chum. But as they had both grown towards adulthood, sadly, their relationship had changed too. He just wasn't the same anymore, and Irene had to admit her feelings had changed towards him lately; nervous butterflies always found her stomach whenever they were together. Just maybe he feels the same way about me...But when tragedy strikes the Witmers, fate threatens to separate them forever. Maybe I will never know; the dreaded thought haunts her mind daily. Can she banish all the shadows that life has thrown at her, and discover her true self despite her challenges?
He, the dim morning star will return, In full blackness of night, When body, power, mind, and soul, Under the fifth moon unite. Years have passed since the Dragon Wars almost annihilated the entire dragon race, and the dark creatures have all but died out, scattered throughout the realm, never to unite as one again. All they have left to cling to is a promise made by Haren ages ago, a prophecy that through a Chosen One the world would once again belong to darkness. Now, this Chosen One has been born in an unlikely, inconceivable form: a unicorn. Gifted with the ability to control darkness through his voice alone, Moonbeam joins an emp called Feo, preparing to defeat and gain one of the dragon hearts, the heart of Azul, the magic dragon. The only thing standing in his way is a Japanese Chin, a small dog who sees the future and knows of his one weakness hidden away. Now this dog, along with two human companions, an elf princess, a lox, and Moonbeam's twin brother, Lionheart, begin an unimaginably difficult journey to stop the unicorn prince before he can fulfill the Prophecy, returning Elath to shadow.
Melissa Cutler is a bright new voice in contemporary romance. --New York Times bestselling author Lori Wilde Transforming their parents' rundown ranch in Catcher Creek, New Mexico, into a tourist destination is the toughest challenge the three Sorentino sisters ever faced. But now one of them has another fight on her hands--to keep from falling for the sexy town sheriff--again. . . Rachel Sorentino has spent her whole life protecting her siblings from trouble--only to run headlong into it herself. Her first regret about shooting at the vandals targeting her family ranch is that her aim wasn't better. Her second is that when bullets started flying, it was Sheriff Vaughn Cooper's number she dialed. Vaughn is the mistake she keeps on making, a cowboy lawman who cuts through Rachel's surface bravado to the vulnerability no one else sees. And no matter how inconvenient their attraction--for his career, her tangled case, and his already battered heart--there's no denying what feels so irresistibly right. . . Praise for Melissa Cutler's The Trouble With Cowboys "One hot romance from start to finish." --Carolyn Brown "Cutler grabs readers from the first page. . .one fun, passionate romp." --RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars "Sexy, savvy stuff!" –Susan Andersen
