I have this dream that, secretly, all teenage girls feel exactly like me. And maybe one day, when we realize that we all feel the same, we can all stop pretending we’re something we’re not… But until that day, I’m going to keep it real on this blog and keep it unreal in real life. Penny has a secret. Under the alias GirlOnline, Penny blogs her hidden feelings about friendship, boys, high school drama, her crazy family, and the panic attacks that have begun to take over her life. When things go from bad to worse at school, her parents accept an opportunity to whisk the family away for Christmas at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. There, Penny meets Noah, a gorgeous, guitar-strumming American. Suddenly she is falling in love—and capturing every moment she spends with "Brooklyn Boy" on her blog. But Noah has a secret, too, one that threatens to ruin Penny’s cover—and her closest friendship—forever.

Award-winning YouTuber and blogger Zoe “Zoella” Sugg presents the third novel in her New York Times bestselling Girl Online series. Every time I walk around a corner there’s another reminder of him. Even though I’m sure he must be far away from where I am, I keep thinking I see him in a crowd of people just ahead of me....Am I going crazy? You know that saying that goosebumps happen when someone walks over your grave? That’s the same feeling I get—shivery, cold, a little bit scared—and it always makes me feel a bit pathetic. What can I do to drive the ghosts away and feel normal again? Penny’s life is back to normal. As she starts the school year, she’s ready to face the world—alone. Noah has gone off the radar after ending his world tour early, and no one, including Penny, knows where he is or why he’s left everything behind. So when Penny accepts Megan’s invitation to visit her performing arts school, it seems like an opportunity to make some new friends. Helping everyone else might be the right remedy—Elliot needs her friendship more than ever, as does her new friend Posey, who she can really help deal with her stage fright. And when charming Scottish photographer Callum comes along, Penny has more than her fair share of distractions. But is he the right kind of distraction? Can Penny truly move on when Noah’s shadow seems to haunt her around every corner?

This Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Classic includes a glossary and reader's notes to help the modern reader appreciate Jacobs' perspectives and language.DRIVEN BY THE HORRORS of slavery and fear of a predatory master, Harriet Jacobs, a young black woman, makes the fateful, life-altering decision to escape. Long thought to be the work of a white writer, Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl is the captivating and terrifying story of Jacobs' daily life on a plantation in North Carolina, her seven years of hiding, and her ultimate triumph.Jacobs wrote her autobiography in 1861, under a pseudonym to protect the lives of the friends and family she left behind, and the work had been essentially lost until the mid-twentieth century. Now recognized as a classic, unflinching portrait of slave life, Incidents exposes slavery on a level comparable only to that of Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass.

A page-turning debut written in the tradition of R.L. Stine's Fear Street, Goosebumps or Haunting Hour. In the town of Riverville, there is a street. It was a street where they used to hang witches. It is a street where students from school are known to have vanished without a trace, even till today. It is a street where strange things happen to people. It is called Fox Street. But kids at school call it by another name. The Witch's Street. Chris had just moved in with his mom, into Fox Street a.k.a. The Witch's Street. One evening he wakes up in his bedroom, realizing that he had been chatting with a girl online, one he had never met before.He had no recollection of how he had ended up chatting with her. And in school, the kids tease him, saying that his house is haunted. Strange things start happening to Chris and he is getting to the bottom of it. Before it's too late. Free Chapter: “Honey don’t you think you should get some sleep????” Chris’s mom was calling out to him from outside his bedroom. Chris was hunched over his laptop, being online. His bedroom light was off and the only source of light came from the laptop screen. He saw the timer in his laptop screen. It was nearly midnight. “Just doing some online research for my assignment mom!!!!” Chris lied. He was chatting to strangers in some chat room. “Well I’m off to bed!!! Don’t stay up too late!!! You got school tomorrow!!! Night!!!” his mom made her last yawn for that night. “Night mom!!!!” Chris was polite. Chris yawned. He was talking to strangers from all over the world. None interested him. Chris closed his eyelids for a while but when he opened them again, he was shocked. “I must have fallen asleep!!!!” Chris looking at the time. It was half-past-one in the morning. Chris stared at his screen, surprisingly. It was widescreen. He saw his only chat room nick and a second nick. “Was I talking to someone???” Chris was puzzled. He didn’t remember talking to someone. He stared at the screen again. From what he could see, it seemed that he and this other individual had been chatting. In private. Red Rose says: What a coincidence. You live in Riverville too. Too bad I don’t go to Riverville HighWalking Zombie says: Yeah too bad. Hey how about we meet up! Walking Zombie was Chris’s nick. Chris read on. Red Rose says: When and where? Their last conversation ended about ten minutes ago. I hope she is still online!!!!, Chris thought. Ever since he moved to Riverville, he hadn’t made much friends as he didn’t really click it with anyone. He was also pretty sure that he was talking to a she, as what male would ever call himself a ‘rose’. Chris typed again to the screen. Walking Zombie says: Are you still there? He hoped she was still online. He wanted someone to really hang out with. After a minute, he had a reply. Red Rose says: Yes I’m still here. Afraid that I chased you off Chris smiled, typing more words online. Walking Zombie says: No you didn’t. I had to go downstairs for a while to see if someone was out there. Turned out to be no one He then saw her response. Red Rose says: So you wanna meet up tomorrow? He smiled, typing more words. Walking Zombie says: Yes sure. Where and when? He waited with uncontrolled excitement until she responded. Red Rose says: How about Riverville Mall. At the top floor. In front of that empty shop that’s being renovated. Let’s say four in the afternoon.Chris smiled. He may not remembered how he ended up chatting with this “girl” but he was glad that he did, although he didn’t even expect that something like this would happen. Chris responded. Walking Zombie says: I don’t even know what you look like. Do you have a pic? After ten seconds, he saw his response. Red Rose says: Let’s make it a surprise. I’ll wait for you tomorrow at the top floor of Riverville Mall. It would be much more interesting for the two of us if we finally get to see each other’s faces. That way I’ll finally who is this Walking Zombie that I have been chatting with and you’ll finally know who is this Red Rose behind this screen. Chris pondered but then thought why not and how it would be such a cool idea. He responded. Walking Zombie says: Yeah that does sound much cooler. Red Rose says: C u tomorrow at 4 then He saw her nick logging off. “Man this is so cool!!!!,” Chris smiled. He was so excited but yet at the same time felt that something wasn’t right. A feeling that he actually had every night. Think about Rose. That would make you happier!!!!!, he thought.

WINNER OF THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE In this intimate memoir of survival, a former captive of the Islamic State tells her harrowing and ultimately inspiring story. Nadia Murad was born and raised in Kocho, a small village of farmers and shepherds in northern Iraq. A member of the Yazidi community, she and her brothers and sisters lived a quiet life. Nadia had dreams of becoming a history teacher or opening her own beauty salon. On August 15th, 2014, when Nadia was just twenty-one years old, this life ended. Islamic State militants massacred the people of her village, executing men who refused to convert to Islam and women too old to become sex slaves. Six of Nadia’s brothers were killed, and her mother soon after, their bodies swept into mass graves. Nadia was taken to Mosul and forced, along with thousands of other Yazidi girls, into the ISIS slave trade. Nadia would be held captive by several militants and repeatedly raped and beaten. Finally, she managed a narrow escape through the streets of Mosul, finding shelter in the home of a Sunni Muslim family whose eldest son risked his life to smuggle her to safety. Today, Nadia's story—as a witness to the Islamic State's brutality, a survivor of rape, a refugee, a Yazidi—has forced the world to pay attention to an ongoing genocide. It is a call to action, a testament to the human will to survive, and a love letter to a lost country, a fragile community, and a family torn apart by war.
