All things cease to appear

George Clare comes home to find his wife killed and their three-year-old daughter alone in her room across the hall. George is of course the immediate suspect. The pall of death is ongoing, and relentless; behind one crime there are others, and more than twenty years will pass before a hard kind of justice is finally served.

Another Brooklyn

For August and her girls, Brooklyn was a place where they believed that they were beautiful and talented—a part of a future that belonged to them. But beneath the hopeful veneer was another Brooklyn, a dangerous place where men reached for innocent girls in dark hallways, ghosts haunted the night, and mothers disappeared.

Crazy blood

The Carson dynasty rules the ski resort town of Mammoth Lakes in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California.

All American boys

Sixteen-year-old Rashad goes into the corner bodega for a bag of chips. What he finds instead is a fist-happy cop, Paul Galluzzo, who mistakes Rashad for a shoplifter. There were witnesses: Quinn—Rashad’s classmate who’s been raised by Paul since his own father died— and a video camera. Two teens—one black, one white—grapple with the repercussions of a violent act that leaves their school and community divided by racial tension.

Harmony House

Something’s not right in Beach Haven. After her alcoholic mother’s death, Jen’s father cracked. He dragged Jen to a dilapidated old manor on the shore of New Jersey to start their new lives—but Jen can tell that the place has an unhappy history. She can feel it the same way she can feel her anger flowing out of her, affecting the world in strange ways she can’t explain.

Highly illogical behavior

Lisa desperately wants to get into the second-best psychology program for college (she’s being realistic). But how can she prove she deserves a spot there? Solomon is the answer. Determined to “fix” Sol, Lisa thrusts herself into his life. Soon, the teens are far closer than they thought they’d be, and when their walls fall down, their friendships threaten to collapse, as well.

Demon dentist

Something strange is happening in Alfie’s town. Instead of shiny coins from the tooth fairy, kids are waking up to dead slugs, live spiders, and other icky, terrible things under their pillows. Alfie is sure that Miss Root, the new dentist in town, is behind it all. There’s nothing Alfie hates more than going to the dentist, but to solve this mystery, he may have to book a dreaded appointment.

The girl who drank the moon

An epic fantasy about a young girl named Luna who is raised by a witch, a swamp monster, and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon, who must unlock the powerful magic buried deep inside her. Soon, it is up to Luna to protect those who have protected her—even if it means the end of the loving, safe world she’s always known.

Paper wishes

It’s 1942, after the attack on Pearl Harbor, and 10-year-old Manami and her family are Japanese American, which means that the government says they must leave their home and join other Japanese Americans at a prison camp. It isn’t until she finds a way to let go of her guilt that Manami can reclaim the piece of herself that she left behind and accept all that has happened to her family.

Click, clack, ho ho ho!

Daniel finds a poem

What is poetry? Is it glistening morning dew? Spider thinks so. Is it crisp leaves crunching? That’s what Squirrel says. The magical thing is that poetry is in everyone, and Daniel is on his way to discovering a poem of his own after spending time with his animal friends.


There’s a new dog in town and he is focused on finding a treat, no matter the cost. But endless tricks and futile searching (you can’t eat Grandma’s dentures!) can be pretty exhausting. Just when he’s about to give up hope…what’s this? It’s a TREAT!

Beasts and Children

From the tense territory of a sagging, grand porch in Texas to a gated community in steamy Thailand to a lonely apartment in nondescript suburbia, these linked stories unwind the lives of three families as they navigate ever-shifting landscapes. Wry and sharp, dark and subversive, these characters make choices that will change the course of their lives in surprising, unforgettable ways.

Black Man in a White Coat: A Doctor's Reflections On Race And Medicine

One doctor’s passionate and profound memoir of his experience grappling with race, bias, and the unique health problems of black Americans.

Instead, he finds that he has joined a new world where race is front and center.

Chasing the North Star

In 1850, on his eighteenth birthday, Jonah Williams flees the South Carolina plantation on which he was born a slave. He takes with him only a few stolen coins, a knife, and the clothes on his back—no shoes, no map, no clear idea of where to head, except north, following a star that he prays will be his guide.

The Underground Railroad

Cora is a slave on a cotton plantation in Georgia. Life is hell for all the slaves, but especially bad for Cora. When Caesar, a recent arrival from Virginia, tells her about the Underground Railroad, they decide to take a terrifying risk and escape. Though they manage to find a station and head north, they are being hunted.

Before the Fall

On a foggy summer night, eleven people depart Martha’s Vineyard on a private jet headed for New York. Sixteen minutes later, the unthinkable happens: the plane plunges into the ocean. The only survivors are Scott Burroughs—the penniless painter—and a four-year-old boy, who is now the last remaining member of an immensely wealthy and powerful media mogul’s family. As the passengers’ intrigues unravel, odd coincidences point to a conspiracy.


An electrifying novel about marriage and deceit that follows two couples on vacation in Siracusa, a town on the coast of Sicily, where the secrets they have hidden from each other are exposed and relationships are unraveled. Told Rashomon-style in alternating points of view, the characters expose and stumble upon lies and infidelities past and present.
