#1 international bestselling author of Thirteen Reasons Why Jay Asher and co-author Jessica Freeburg brilliantly reimagine the classic Pied Piper legend as a powerful graphic novel about loneliness, love, and vengeance. Fans of Neil Gaiman and Through the Woods by Emily Carroll will devour this eerie, atmospheric retelling. “A moving graphic novel about isolation, love, and retribution, this dark version of a familiar tale will remain with readers long after the last page is turned.”—School Library Journal Long ago, in a small village in the middle of a deep, dark forest, there lived a lonely, deaf girl named Maggie. Shunned by her village because of her disability, her only comfort comes from her vivid imagination. Maggie has a gift for inventing stories and dreams of one day finding her fairy-tale love. When Maggie meets the mysterious Piper, it seems that all her wishes are coming true. Spellbound, Maggie falls hard for him and plunges headfirst into his magical world. But as she grows closer to the Piper, Maggie discovers that he has a dark side. The boy of Maggie’s dreams might just turn out to be her worst nightmare… With striking illustrations from Eisner-nominated artist Jeff Stokely, mixed with Jessica Freeburg's work on historic and legendary horrors, Piper is an exciting new departure for Jay Asher that deftly touches on the same themes of truth, guilt, and redemption that made Thirteen Reasons Why a beloved bestseller.
Regan Flay has been talking about you. Regan Flay is on the cusp of achieving her control-freak mother's "plan" for high school success?cheerleading, student council, the Honor Society—until her life gets turned horribly, horribly upside down. Every bitchy text. Every bitchy email. Every lie, manipulation, and insult she's ever said have been printed out and taped to all the lockers in school. Now Regan has gone from popular princess to total pariah. The only person who even speaks to her is her former best friend's hot but socially miscreant brother, Nolan Letner. Nolan thinks he knows what Regan's going through, but what nobody knows is that Regan isn't really Little Miss Perfect. In fact, she's barely holding it together under her mom's pressure. But the consequences of Regan's fall from grace are only just beginning. Once the chain reaction starts, no one will remain untouched... Especially Regan Flay.
Pendant longtemps, l'histoire de la théologie catholique a présenté les XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles comme le temps d'une suprématie de saint Augustin. La réalité est beaucoup plus complexe. Le catholicisme de l'âge classique se caractérise par un pluralisme doctrinal qui permet la confrontation de nombreuses écoles théologiques, dont celle de saint Thomas. Rédigé par l'un des meilleurs spécialistes actuels de l'histoire des idées religieuses de l'époque moderne, le présent ouvrage est consacré, à travers différentes études, à la définition du périmètre doctrinal caractéristique du thomisme des XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles. Né en 1972, ancien élève de l'École nationale des chartes, agrégé et docteur habilité à diriger des recherches en histoire moderne, ancien membre de l'École française de Rome, Sylvio Hermann De Franceschi est directeur d'études à la Ve section (Sciences religieuses) de l'École Pratique des Hautes Études (PSL) et directeur du Laboratoire d'études sur les monothéismes (UMR 8584). Il a notamment publié La Puissance et la Gloire. L'orthodoxie thomiste au péril du jansénisme (1663-1724) : le zénith français de la querelle de la grâce (2011).
Il a fallu mobiliser toutes les sources historiques, coraniques, orales ou imaginaires pour faire découvrir cette histoire qui appartient à d'autres temps , celle de la très célèbre épouse de Mohammad, Aïcha, de ses coépouses, ses cousines et ses amies...On ne peut qu'être surpris par la vie inattendue de ces femmes, quand la troisième religion monothéiste s'est imposée à un monde hétérogène où les femmes juives et chrétiennes cohabitaient avec leurs voisines païennes, toutes poétesses ou presque...
Josh and Emma are about to discover themselves--fifteen years in the future It's 1996, and Josh and Emma have been neighbors their whole lives. They've been best friends almost as long--at least, up until last November, when everything changed. Things have been awkward ever since, but when Josh's family gets a free AOL CD-ROM in the mail, his mom makes him bring it over so that Emma can install it on her new computer. When they sign on, they're automatically logged onto Facebook . . . but Facebook hasn't been invented yet. Josh and Emma are looking at themselves fifteen years in the future. Their spouses, careers, homes, and status updates--it's all there. And every time they refresh their pages, their futures change. As they grapple with the ups and downs of what their lives hold, they're forced to confront what they're doing right--and wrong--in the present.
For readers of Marieke Nijkamp's This Is Where It Ends, Hate List is a powerful and all-too-timely contemporary classic about the aftermath of a school shooting. Five months ago, Valerie Leftman's boyfriend, Nick, opened fire on their school cafeteria. Shot trying to stop him, Valerie inadvertently saved the life of a classmate, but was implicated in the shootings because of the list she helped create. A list of people and things she and Nick hated. The list he used to pick his targets. Now, after a summer of seclusion, Val is forced to confront her guilt as she returns to school to complete her senior year. Haunted by the memory of the boyfriend she still loves and navigating rocky relationships with her family, former friends, and the girl whose life she saved, Val must come to grips with her role in the tragedy that took place, in order to make amends and move on with her life. Jennifer Brown's critically acclaimed novel now includes the bonus novella Say Something, another arresting Hate List story.

Paul was the most influential figure in the early Christian church. In this epistle, written to the founders of the church in Rome, he sets out some of his ideas on the importance of faith in overcoming mankind's innate sinfulness and in obtaining redemption. With an introduction by Ruth Rendell
From the author of the award-winning novel Let the Great World Spin and TransAtlantic comes an eponymous novella and three stories that range fluidly across time, tenderly exploring the act of writing and the moment of creation when characters come alive on the page; the lifetime consequences that can come from a simple act; and the way our lives play across the world, marking language, image and each other. Thirteen Ways of Looking is framed by two author’s notes, each dealing with the brutal attack the author suffered last year and strikes at the heart of contemporary issues at home and in Ireland, the author’s birth place. Brilliant in its clarity and deftness, this collection reminds us, again, why Colum McCann is considered among the very best contemporary writers.
Winner of the Children's Choice Book Awards' Teen Choice Debut Author Award Everyone knows Alice slept with two guys at one party. When Healy High star quarterback, Brandon Fitzsimmons, dies in a car crash, it was because he was sexting with Alice. Ask anybody. Rumor has it Alice Franklin is a slut.

After Brandon dies, the rumors start to spiral out of control. In this remarkable debut novel, four Healy High students tell all they "know" about Alice--and in doing so reveal their own secrets and motivations, painting a raw look at the realities of teen life. But in this novel from Jennifer Mathieu, exactly what is the truth about Alice? In the end there's only one person to ask: Alice herself. This title has Common Core connections.

A 2016 Zoella Book Club Pick! Theodore Finch is fascinated by death, and he constantly thinks of ways he might kill himself. But each time, something good, no matter how small, stops him. Violet Markey lives for the future, counting the days until graduation, when she can escape her Indiana town and her aching grief in the wake of her sister’s recent death. When Finch and Violet meet on the ledge of the bell tower at school, it’s unclear who saves whom. And when they pair up on a project to discover the “natural wonders” of their state, both Finch and Violet make more important discoveries: It’s only with Violet that Finch can be himself—a weird, funny, live-out-loud guy who’s not such a freak after all. And it’s only with Finch that Violet can forget to count away the days and start living them. But as Violet’s world grows, Finch’s begins to shrink. This is an intense, gripping novel perfect for fans of Gayle Forman, Jay Asher, Rainbow Rowell, John Green, and Jenny Downham from a talented new voice in YA, Jennifer Niven. “At the heart—a big one—of “All the Bright Places” lies a charming love story about this unlikely and endearing pair of broken teenagers.” — New York Times Book Review “…this heartbreaking love story about two funny, fragile, and wildly damaged high school kids named Violet and Finch is worth reading. Niven is a skillful storyteller who never patronizes her characters—or her audience.” — Entertainment Weekly From the Hardcover edition.
Joseph Guiteau is a working actor who moved to New York to escape a tragic family history in the Midwest. Wandering through a city transformed by the attacks of September 2001, he frequents gatherings of conspiracy groups, trying to make sense of world events and his own personal history.

The new marriage influences the lives of those around them: William, a dark and troubled actor whose sanity is fading as quickly as his career, leading him to perform increasingly desperate acts; Madi, a young entrepreneur who will have to face the moral complications of a business made successful by the outsourcing of American jobs to India; and her brother Raj, Del’s former lover, a promising photographer whose work details the empty rooms of an increasingly alienated city. Christopher Bollen’s first novel captures the atmosphere of anxiety and loss that exists in Manhattan. It is a story of the city itself, and the interconnected lives of those attempting to navigate both Manhattan and their own mortality.

Then one night, desperate for escape, fifteen-year-old Paige found herself in her bathroom staring at a bottle of sleeping pills. That could have been the end of her story.

Includes twenty-five photos from Paige's personal collection throughout. Supports the Common Core State Standards
"Engel makes good use of her setting; the fight for survival on the cusp of winter stokes the sense of danger in a way that matches Ivy’s roiling feelings, and the love story moves with the slow-growing heat that Ivy needs.” —Kirkus Reviews Beyond the fence. I am still alive. Barely. My name is Ivy Westfall. I am sixteen years old and a traitor. Three months ago, I was forced to marry the president's son, Bishop Lattimer—as all daughters of the losing side of the war are sold off in marriage to the sons of the winners. But I was different. I had a mission-to kill Bishop. Instead, I fell in love with him. Now I am an outcast, left to survive the brutal savagery of the lands outside of civilization. Yet even out here, there is hope. There is life beyond the fence. But I can't outrun my past. For my actions have set off a treasonous chain of events in Westfall that will change all of our fates—especially Bishop's. And this time, it is not enough to just survive...

WELLS, the chancellor's son, came to Earth for the girl he loves -- but will she ever forgive him?

And GLASS managed to escape back onto the ship, only to find that life there is just as dangerous as she feared it would be on Earth.

Dans cet ouvrage érudit mais aussi pratique, le Professeur Cheng révèle les secrets de sa lignée, et nous amène au coeur du T'ai Chi Ch'uan, nous le présentant comme un art martial, une thérapeutique, et un ensemble d'exercices pour le développement personnel. Avec une illustration s'appuyant sur l'anatomie et la physique, il présente un exposé précis des postures et des mouvements, leur travail interne en tant que principe énergétique, et externe en tant qu'application martiale. Il l'éclaire à l'aide de sphères, triangles, forces centrifuge et centripète dans les échanges physiques tels que la poussée des mains. Différenciant les techniques de santé occidentale et chinoise, il explore aussi les relations entre les organes internes lors de pathologies, et indique les traitements appropriés. Le Professeur Cheng prétend qu'une maladie est toujours l'occasion d'un mieux-être, de la même façon que l'attaque d'un adversaire nous incite à progresser. Le pratiquant de T'ai Chi Ch'uan peut ainsi être médecin, et de la même manière, son propre entraîneur. Les arts martiaux ne sont pas porteurs d'un pouvoir surhumain ; ils représentent simplement un aspect de l'adaptation aux lois de la nature et du cosmos. À ce niveau, la philosophie elle-même rejoint la matière, la physique devient méditation, et la force de gravitation universelle, notre chemin.

Enfin, un livre différent sur Compostelle Ce n’est pas un récit de vie intimiste où l’auteur se livre corps et âme dans un cheminement personnel et spirituel du type journal intime. Ce n’est pas un guide pratique qui renseigne sur les données techniques. Il s’agit d’un essai où l’ingénieur-photographe, Raymond Lafrance, répond à 33 reprises à l’incontournable question : Pourquoi marcher Compostelle? Dans un humour propre à l’auteur, sans tambour ni trompette, nous marchons dans les pas d’un homme qui s’est lancé dans ce projet comme on décide d’aller prendre une marche un dimanche après-midi. De superbes photos accompagnent les chroniques, les réflexions – parfois cocasses – sur les langues, les nationalités, les statistiques, les analyses, mais surtout, sur les raisons profondes ou non qui poussent un individu à marcher Compostelle. Après cette lecture, vous comprendrez pourquoi tant de pèlerins se lancent dans cette aventure, et qui sait, aurez-vous l’envie de marcher ou de marcher à nouveau le Camino del Norte ou le Camino Francés ?

Les adultes savent-ils jamais quand s'achève leur passé ? Et savent-ils, au fond, pourquoi l'amour et la haine les possèdent si obstinément ? C'est ce que se demande Camille, une jeune adolescente, lorsqu'elle vient aux Treize Vents, en Normandie, passer quelques vacances en famille... Autour d'elle, la rumeur des années cinquante ; les souvenirs encore incandescents de la guerre ; le goût de la vengeance et de la jalousie ; de la passion et des désirs mal éteints... Elle observe, au fil d'un été, le manège cruel des hommes et des femmes qui l'entourent et qui n'en finissent pas de régler leurs vieux comptes. Que s'est-il vraiment passé, entre eux, pendant l'Occupation allemande ? Qui a aidé la Milice et qui les Résistants ? Dans ce roman, tout de sensations et de fulgurances, Solange Fasquelle traque, comme toujours, la vérité des âmes à l'heure du clair-obscur. Et, elle sait, mieux que personne, explorer une histoire de France qui, bien souvent, se confond avec les ténébreuses affaires et les secrets de famille.
Cody and Meg were inseparable... Until they weren’t. When her best friend, Meg, drinks a bottle of industrial-strength cleaner alone in a motel room, Cody is understandably shocked and devastated. She and Meg shared everything—so how was there no warning? But when Cody travels to Meg’s college town to pack up the belongings left behind, she discovers that there’s a lot that Meg never told her. About her old roommates, the sort of people Cody never would have met in her dead-end small town in Washington. About Ben McAllister, the boy with a guitar and a sneer, and some secrets of his own. And about an encrypted computer file that Cody can’t open—until she does, and suddenly everything Cody thought she knew about her best friend’s death gets thrown into question. "I Was Here is a pitch-perfect blend of mystery, tragedy, and romance. Gayle Forman has given us an unflinchingly honest portrait of the bravery that it takes to live after devastating loss." —Stephen Chbosky, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Laurie Halse Anderson, bestselling author of Wintergirls and Speak, said that "the painful honesty of this book will crack open your heart." Senior year, their last year together, Merissa and Nadia need their best friend Tink more than they ever did before.

And now she's gone. . . . In a starred review, Kirkus Reviews described Joyce Carol Oates as "a master at portraying the inner lives of teens." In Two or Three Things I Forgot to Tell You, she's created a powerful portrayal of a friendship strong enough to transcend death.
Traduit pour la premiere fois par un jesuite en 1772 sous le titre «Les treize chapitres», qui l'a fait connaitre en Europe, ce texte est vite devenu un texte fondateur de la strategie militaire aupres des differentes cours et etat-majors europeens. Rarement, un livre ancien (ecrit entre le 6eme et le 3e siecle avant Jesus-Christ) n'est reste aussi moderne, car cette philosophie de la guerre et de la politique fondee sur la ruse et le semblant, plus que sur la force brute, qu'il decrit, est toujours d'actualite. Et meme, hors de la «chose militaire», Sun tzu reste une grande reference pour decrypter la strategie d'entreprise et la politique. La formulation precise et imagee de Sun tzu ajoute a l'interet du texte, une touche de sagesse millenaire...
Initialement prévu pour une trilogie qui aurait compris, outre L'homme qui rit, roman consacré a l'aristocratie, un volume sur la monarchie, Quatrevingt-Treize, écrit a Guernesey de décembre 1872 a juin 1873, apres l'échec de Hugo aux élections de janvier 1872, acheve la réflexion de l'écrivain sur la Révolution a la lumiere de la Commune et tente de répondre a ces questions: a quelles conditions une révolution peut-elle créer un nouvel ordre des choses? 1793 était-il, est-il toujours nécessaire? Le roman valut a son auteur la haine des conservateurs. En mai 1793, le marquis de Lantenac, âme de l'insurrection vendéenne, arrive en Bretagne sur la Claymore, une corvette anglaise. A bord, il n'a pas hésité a décorer puis a faire exécuter un matelot qui n'avait pas arrimé assez solidement un canon. La consigne du marquis est claire: il faut tout mettre a feu et a sang. D'horribles combats s'ensuivent. Lantenac massacre des Bleus et capture trois enfants...
A powerful novel about hope and heartbreak, “as much about loss as it is about first love and friendship” (Publishers Weekly, starred review). Sandwiched between two exceptional siblings, Taylor Edwards never felt like she stood out—except for her history of running away when things get too complicated. Then her dad receives unexpected, terrible news, and the family makes the last-minute decision to spend the summer together in the cramped quarters at their old lake house. Taylor hasn’t been to the summer house since she was twelve, and she definitely never planned on going back. Up at the lake she is confronted with people she thought she left behind, like her former best friend, Lucy, and Henry Crosby, her first crush, who’s all grown up…and a lot cuter. Suddenly Taylor is surrounded by memories she’d rather leave in the past—but she can’t run away this time. As the days lying on the beach pass into nights gazing at the stars, Taylor realizes she has a second chance—with friends, with family, maybe even with love. But she knows that once the summer ends, there is no way to recapture what she stands to lose. From Morgan Matson, the PW Flying Start author of Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour, this is a remarkable novel about hope in the face of heartbreaking grief.
The Stranger Game is a dark, suspenseful, and twisty novel that is Gone Girl for teens. Perfect for fans of Lauren Oliver and E. Lockhart. When Nico Morris’s older sister mysteriously disappears, her parents, family, and friends are devastated. But Nico can never admit what she herself feels: relief at finally being free of Sarah’s daily cruelties. Then the best and worst thing happens: four years later, after dozens of false leads, Sarah is found. But this girl is much changed from the one Nico knew. She’s thin and drawn, when Sarah had been golden and athletic; timid and unsure, instead of brash and competitive; and strangest of all, sweet and kind, when she had once been mean and abusive. Sarah’s retrograde amnesia has caused her to forget almost everything about her life, from small things like the plots of her favorite books and her tennis game to the more critical—where she’s been the last four years and what happened at the park on the fateful day she vanished. Despite the happy ending, the dark details of that day continue to haunt Nico, and it becomes clear that more than one person knows the true story of what happened to Sarah. . . .

Ces essais à propos de l'oeuvre de Wallace Stevens (1879-1955) portent prioritairement sur 1'examen des grands poèmes de leur auteur. L'objectif de ce travail de recherche est d'analyser, en examinant les textes, comment Stevens construit son lyrisme et assure son autorité par l'aveu de ses faiblesses, et grâce à un sens, en somme, de la retenue. A travers de nombreuses références théoriques, l'ouvrage montrera qu'il existe là une voie interne de construction de ce qu'on nomme la canonicité Outre-Atlantique.
The compelling novel from the number 1 bestselling author of Five Days, The Moment and The Pursuit of Happiness. On the night of her thirteenth birthday, Jane Howard made a vow to her warring parents - she would never get married and she would never have children. But life, as Jane discovers, is a profoundly random business. Many years and many lives later, she is a professor in Boston, in love with a brilliant, erratic man named Theo.

Convinced that she knows more about the case than the police do, she is forced to make a decision - stay hidden or bring to light a shattering truth. Like Kennedy's previous highly acclaimed novels, Leaving the World, speaks volumes about the dilemmas we face in trying to navigate our way through all that fate throws in our path.

Inspired by events in Coelho's own life, Veronika Decides to Die questions the meaning of madness and celebrates individuals who do not fit into patterns society considers to be normal.
