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?

Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl

An Autobiographical Account of an Escaped Slave and Abolitionist

Author: Harriet Ann Jacobs

Publisher: Skyhorse Publishing, Inc.

Category: Biography & Autobiography

Page: 240

View: 4057

After hiding in her grandmother’s attic for seven years, Harriet Ann Jacobs was finally able to escape servitude—and her master’s sexual abuse—when she fled to the North. Once there, she became a very active abolitionist, and her correspondence with Harriet Beecher Stowe inspired her to write Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl about her years as a slave. She published the narrative in 1861 under the pseudonym Linda Brent, and the book was written as a novel with fictionalized characters to protect Jacobs from retribution by her former owners. (Dr. Flint, i.e., the real Dr. James Norcom, is Linda Brent’s master in the novel.) The story emphasized certain negative aspects of slavery—especially the struggles of female slaves under sexually abusive masters, cruel mistresses, and the sale of their children—in order to play on the sympathies of white middle-class women in the North. Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl was published at the beginning of the American Civil War. It contributed to the Union’s and abolitionists’ war effort, but is today seen as an important first-hand account from an escaped slave woman and an important abolitionist. After the Civil War, Jacobs continued to support the African-American cause, particularly education, until her death in 1897. Skyhorse Publishing, along with our Arcade, Good Books, Sports Publishing, and Yucca imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of biographies, autobiographies, and memoirs. Our list includes biographies on well-known historical figures like Benjamin Franklin, Nelson Mandela, and Alexander Graham Bell, as well as villains from history, such as Heinrich Himmler, John Wayne Gacy, and O. J. Simpson. We have also published survivor stories of World War II, memoirs about overcoming adversity, first-hand tales of adventure, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

Anne Frank's The Diary of a Young Girl is among the most enduring documents of the twentieth century. Since its publication in 1947, it has been read by tens of millions of people all over the world. It remains a beloved and deeply admired testament to the indestructible nature of the human spirit. Restored in this Definitive Edition are diary entries that were omitted from the original edition. These passages, which constitute 30 percent more material, reinforce the fact that Anne was first and foremost a teenage girl, not a remote and flawless symbol. She fretted about and tried to cope with her own sexuality. Like many young girls, she often found herself in disagreements with her mother. And like any teenager, she veered between the carefree nature of a child and the full-fledged sorrow of an adult. Anne emerges more human, more vulnerable and more vital than ever. Anne Frank and her family, fleeing the horrors of Nazi occupation, hid in the back of an Amsterdam warehouse for two years. She was thirteen when she went into the Secret Annex with her family.

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.

Finding Our Stories, Discovering Ourselves

An inspiring collection of essays by black women writers, curated by the founder of the popular book club Well-Read Black Girl, on the importance of recognizing ourselves in literature. “A brilliant collection of essential American reading . . . smart, powerful, and complete.”—Min Jin Lee, author of the National Book Award finalist Pachinko Remember that moment when you first encountered a character who seemed to be written just for you? That feeling of belonging remains with readers the rest of their lives—but not everyone regularly sees themselves in the pages of a book. In this timely anthology, Glory Edim brings together original essays by some of our best black women writers to shine a light on how important it is that we all—regardless of gender, race, religion, or ability—have the opportunity to find ourselves in literature. Contributors include Jesmyn Ward (Sing, Unburied, Sing), Lynn Nottage (Sweat), Jacqueline Woodson (Another Brooklyn), Gabourey Sidibe (This Is Just My Face), Morgan Jerkins (This Will Be My Undoing), Tayari Jones (An American Marriage), Rebecca Walker (Black, White and Jewish), and Barbara Smith (Home Girls: A Black Feminist Anthology) Whether it’s learning about the complexities of femalehood from Zora Neale Hurston and Toni Morrison, finding a new type of love in The Color Purple, or using mythology to craft an alternative black future, the subjects of each essay remind us why we turn to books in times of both struggle and relaxation. As she has done with her book club–turned–online community Well-Read Black Girl, in this anthology Glory Edim has created a space in which black women’s writing and knowledge and life experiences are lifted up, to be shared with all readers who value the power of a story to help us understand the world and ourselves. Advance praise for Well-Read Black Girl “This book is a star chart, a map readers can use to navigate the world via the minds of brilliant black women writers. The essays extol us all to regard—and to celebrate—the written word anew.”—Angela Flournoy, author of The Turner House “An eloquently provocative anthology . . . Candid and thoughtful from start to finish, [Glory] Edim’s collection amply celebrates the many paths black women have traveled on the road to self-definition. . . . In each essay, the contributor discusses her relationships to reading, books, and the world, yet each bears the unique experiential imprint of the woman who wrote it.”—Kirkus Reviews

Around the Way Girl

From Taraji P. Henson, Academy Award nominee, Golden Globe winner, and star of the award-winning film Hidden Figures, comes an inspiring and funny memoir—“a bona fide hit” (Essence)—about family, friends, the hustle required to make it in Hollywood, and the joy of living your own truth. With a sensibility that recalls her beloved screen characters, including Katherine, the NASA mathematician, Yvette, Queenie, Shug, and the iconic Cookie from Empire, Taraji P. Henson writes of her family, the one she was born into and the one she created. She shares stories of her father, a Vietnam vet who was bowed but never broken by life’s challenges, and of her mother who survived violence both at home and on DC’s volatile streets. Here, too, she opens up about her experiences as a single mother, a journey some saw as a burden but which she saw as a gift. Around the Way Girl is also a classic actor’s memoir in which Taraji reflects on the world-class instruction she received at Howard University and how she chipped away, with one small role after another, at Hollywood's resistance to give women, particularly women of color, meaty significant roles. With laugh-out-loud humor and candor, she shares the challenges and disappointments of the actor’s journey and shows us that behind the red carpet moments, she is ever authentic. She is at heart just a girl in pursuit of her dreams in this “inspiring account of overcoming adversity and a quest for self-discovery, written with vitality and enthusiasm” (Shelf Awareness).

New York City, 2004. Lina Sparrow, an ambitious first-year associate in an elite law firm, is given a difficult, highly sensitive assignment that could make her career: finding the “perfect plaintiff” to lead a historic class-action lawsuit worth trillions of dollars in reparations for descendants of American slaves. It is through her father, the renowned artist Oscar Sparrow, that Lina discovers Josephine Bell and a controversy rocking the art world: are the iconic paintings long ascribed to Lu Anne Bell really the work of her house slave, Josephine? A descendant of Josephine’s—if Lina can locate one—would be the perfect face for the reparations lawsuit. While following the runaway house girl’s faint trail through old letters and plantation records, Lina finds herself questioning her own family history and the secrets that her father has never revealed: how did Lina’s mother die?

View: 6261

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.
