The unforgettable debut novel by co-author with John Green of Will Grayson, Will Grayson.
To be together with someone for twenty years seems like an eternity. I can’t seem to manage twenty days…
How do you stay together?
Paul has been gay his whole life and he’s confident about almost everything. He doesn’t have to hide his feelings like best friend Tony or even cope with loving the wrong guy like his other best friend Joni.
But heartbreak can happen to anyone. Falling in love changes everything.
Magic can burn, turn tides, light the darkness and bring back the dead. But magic is gone. So one girl must bring it back in the first in a gripping fantasy trilogy.
Zelie remembers when the soil of Orisha hummed with magic. When different clans ruled – Burners igniting flames, Tiders beckoning waves, and Zelie’s Reaper mother summoning forth souls.
But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, anyone with powers was targeted and killed, leaving Zelie without a mother and her people without hope. Only a few people remain with the power to use magic, and they must remain hidden.
Zelie is one such person. Now she has a chance to bring back magic to her people and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zelie must learn to harness her powers and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good.
Danger lurks in Orisha, where strange creatures prowl, and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zelie herself as she struggles to come to terms with the strength of her magic – and her growing feelings for an enemy.

The master of YA returns with an immediate, coming-of-age classic; John Green is back, and the book is Turtles all the Way Down.
Meet Aza Holmes. She’s a teenager, bright but hemmed in by troubles: introverted, obsessed by bacteria and the transmission of disease, her every thought is edged by doubt and reflection.
Daisy, however, is her Best and Most Fearless Friend, and Daisy has a plan. A plan involving a missing billionaire and the promise of a hundred thousand dollar reward, money that could be theirs if only they could figure out where he has gone. That’s where Russell comes in, and that’s where things start to get really interesting.
Turtles all the Way Down can only have come from the pen of John Green, the author behind Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, Paper Towns, Will Grayson and, of course, the unforgettable The Fault in Our Stars.
Combining mystery, love, truth, courage and the meaning of real friendship, Turtles all the Way Down stands as John Green’s most personal story yet, drawing deep on his own experience of growing up in an uncertain world. ‘It will pluck the strings of those in tune with it,’ noted Matt Haig. ‘It will resonate with, and comfort, anxious young minds everywhere. It might just be a new modern classic.’
