Tarz olarak, Caleb Carr'ın Sue Grafton ile buluşması
New York,  1907. Yirminci yüzyılın şafağında, Amerikalılar bilimin, özellikle tıp ilminin, yakında insanlığın tüm hastalıklarınının  üstesinden geleceğine inanıyorlardı. Tıp fakülteleri kısa süreliğine, kadınlara kapılarını açıp,  
onların bilimsel mücadeleye katılmaya davet etti . Genevieve Summerford çağrıyı kabul eden o kadınlardan biriydi ...
Hep kendisini suçladığı bir aile faciasından sonra, bir psikiyatrist olan Dr. Genevieve Summerford  yeni kariyerinde başarılı olmaktan, aile ve akranlarının saygısını tekrar kazanmaktan başka bir şey istemiyordu. Bu amacı maalesef bir hastasının cinayetten tutuklanmasıyla büyük bir tehlikeye dönüşecektir-zira Genevieve  farkında olmadan cinayeti provoke etmiş olabilir. Kendine ve  yetkililere hastasının masum olduğunu umutsuzca ispatlamaya çalışırken, bir zamanlar ailesinin yanında seyis olarak çalışan, ve artık ona yardım edip etmeyeceğinden bile şüphe duyduğu, oldukça nüfüzlu bir Tammany kaptanından yardım istemek zorunda kalır. Aralarında sıkıntılı bir ittifak kuran ikili, şehrin en güçlü ailelerinden biriyle ilgili şaşırtıcı bir sırrı ele geçirirler. Bu öyle bir sırdır ki açığa çıkarsa Genevie'nin değer verdiklerinin başına büyük bir felaket getirebilir, ancak bu sırrı sürdürmeye devam ederse hastasını elektrikli sandalyeye yollayabilir.

Kayıp kadının izlerini Simon ve polis departmanının yardımıyla "beyaz köleliği" denen İtalyanların harleminde bulur.O güne kadar hiç rastlamadığı kadar çok kişisel davaya müdahil olacaktır.

THE 57 BUS by Sashka Slater

THE 57 BUS: A True Story of Two Teenagers and the Crime That Changed Their Lives by Dashka Slater
October 2017; 320 pp.; Ages 12 & Up
Farrar, Straus & Giroux BYR

One teenager in a skirt. 
One teenager with a lighter.
One moment that changes both of their lives forever. 

If it weren’t for the 57 bus, Sasha and Richard never would have met. Both were high school students from Oakland, California, one of the most diverse cities in the country, but they inhabited different worlds. Sasha, a gender queer white teen, lived in the middle-class foothills and attended a small private school. Richard, a black teen,  lived in the crime-plagued flatlands and attended a large public one. Each day, their paths overlapped for a mere eight minutes. But one afternoon on the bus ride home from school, a single reckless act left Sasha severely burned, and Richard charged with two hate crimes and facing life imprisonment. The case garnered international attention, thrusting both teenagers into the spotlight.

Dashka Slater has written many books, including Baby Shoes, The Sea Serpent and Me, which was a Junior Library Guild Selection, Escargot, and Dangerously Ever After. She is also an award-winning journalist whose articles have appeared in Newsweek, Salon, The New York Times Magazine, and Mother Jones. 



THE 57 BUS is one of five selections for the prestigious BookExpo 2017 Young Adult Book Editors' Buzz Panel program, which names the top authors and titles expected to resonate with readers in 2017. Here's an excerpt from ShelfAwareness:
"I wish The 57 Bus was required reading in all high schools across the country," said Heather Hebert of Children's Book World. "Not only is this nonfiction book beautifully written and meticulously researched, but it is pieced together in such a way that it continuously challenges the readers to think beyond what they hear, beyond what they are shown, beyond what they assume. This is a book that will stay with you long after you have finished reading it." It's available October 17 from Farrar, Straus & Giroux Books for Young Readers. --

Sebastian Bennett is a determined man. It’s the secret behind the business empire he built from scratch. Under his rule, Bennett Enterprises dominates the jewelry industry.

Despite being ruthless in his work, family comes first for him, and he’d do anything for his parents and eight siblings—even if they drive him crazy sometimes…like when they keep nagging him to get married already.

Sebastian doesn’t believe in love, until he brings in external marketing consultant Ava to oversee the next collection launch. She’s beautiful, funny, and just as stubborn as he is. Not only is he obsessed with her delicious curves, but he also finds himself willing to do anything to make her smile. He’s determined to have Ava, even if she’s completely off limits.

Ava Lindt has one job to do at Bennett Enterprises: make the next collection launch unforgettable. Daydreaming about the hot CEO is definitely not on her to-do list. Neither is doing said CEO. The consultancy she works for has a strict policy—no fraternizing with clients. She won’t risk her job. Besides, Ava knows better than to trust men with her heart. But their sizzling chemistry spirals into a deep connection that takes both of them by surprise. Sebastian blows through her defenses one sweet kiss and sinful touch at a time.

When Ava’s time as a consultant in his company comes to an end, will Sebastian fight for the woman he loves or will he end up losing her?

One of Pop Sugar’s 11 Sexiest New Reads

Max Bennett is a successful man. His analytical mind has taken his family’s company to the next level. Outside the office, Max transforms from the serious business man into someone who is carefree and fun. He’s happy with his life and doesn’t intend to change it, even though his mother keeps asking for more grandchildren. Max loves being an uncle, and plans to spoil his nieces rotten.

But when a chance encounter reunites him with Emilia, his childhood best friend, he starts questioning everything. The girl he once knew has grown into a sensual woman with a smile he can’t get out of his mind. 

Taking care of her sick grandmother, Emilia Campbell has a lot on her plate. Still, she faces everything with a positive attitude. When the childhood friend she hero-worshipped steps into her physical therapy clinic, she is over the moon. Max is every bit the troublemaker she remembers, only now he has a body to drool over and a smile to melt her panties. Not that she intends to do the former, or let the latter happen.

They are both determined not to cross the boundaries of friendship…at first. But as they spend more time together, they form an undeniable bond and their flirty banter spirals out of control. 

Max knows Emilia is off-limits, but that only makes her more tempting. Besides, Max was never one to back away from a challenge. 

When their chemistry becomes too much to resist and they inevitably give in to temptation, will they risk losing their friendship or will Max and Emilia find true love?

BERNIE SANDERS GUIDE TO POLITICAL REVOLUTION
By Bernie Sanders, adapted by Kate Waters
Henry Holt Books for Young Readers
Pub Date: August 29, 2017

In The Bernie Sanders Guide to Political Revolution, Independent congressman, presidential candidate and activist Bernie Sanders continues his fight against the imbalances in the nation’s status quo, and shows you how to make a difference to effect the changes America—and the world—need to create a better tomorrow. 

Throughout the Presidential campaign, Senator Bernie Sanders promised voters a future to believe in through his progressive platform and a vision for America worth fighting for. This vision calls for an economic, environmental, health care, and social justice revolution beyond the stagnate agendas of Democrat and Republican politicians to build an equitable future for all Americans—especially the younger generation that will inherit the consequences of decisions made now.

Inside this practical and inspiring guide to effecting change in today’s world, you’ll learn how to:· Understand and navigate the current system of policy and government· Work to change the system to reflect your values and to protect our society’s most vulnerable· Organize for the causes you care about most· Resources for further reading and organizations to get involved with

With more than two decades of Washington D.C. insider knowledge and experience, Senator Sanders knows how to fight and change the system from within, a system desperately in need of reform in health care, immigration, taxes, higher education, climate change, and criminal justice.

BERNIE SANDERS ran as a Democratic candidate for President of the United States in 2015 and 2016. He served as mayor of Burlington, Vermont’s largest city, for eight years before defeating an incumbent Republican to be the sole congressperson for the state in the U.S. House of Representatives in 1991. He was elected to the Senate in 2007 and is now in his second term, making him the longest-serving independent in the history of the Congress. He lives in Burlington, Vermont, with his wife, Jane, and has four children and seven grandchildren.

PRİNCE İN DİSGUİSEis full of hilarity, romance, and reality-TV-worthy surprises—part L.A. Candy, part Sweet Home Alabama.

Life is real enough for Dylan—especially as the ordinary younger sister of Dusty, former Miss Mississippi and the most perfect, most popular girl in Tupelo. But when Dusty wins the hand of the handsome Scottish laird-to-be Ronan on the TRC television network’s crown jewel, “Prince in Disguise,” Dylan has to face a different kind of reality: reality TV.

The camera crew whisks them off to Scotland to film the wedding, and the producers are full of surprises—including old family secrets, long-lost relatives, and a hostile future mother-in-law who thinks Dusty and Dylan’s family isn’t good enough for her only son. At least there’s Jamie, an adorably bookish groomsman who might just be the perfect antidote to all Dylan’s stress…if she just can keep TRC from turning her into the next television sensation.
