      Description
      An unforgettable year in the life of a visionary high school science teacher and his award-winning students, as they try to get into college, land a date for the prom, and possibly change the world.

      Former corporate scientist Andy Bramante—who abandoned his successful business career because he was inspired to teach public high school—helms one of the most remarkable classrooms in America. Andy’s students have taken their work all over their home state of Connecticut and well beyond—D.C., Houston, Los Angeles—cleaning up at the nation’s most prestigious science competitions. They have won the Google Science Fair, invented and patented a fast and inexpensive test for Ebola, and been invited to the Nobel Prize ceremony in Stockholm. These kids come from all kinds of backgrounds, united by a passion for knowledge. As extraordinary as they are, they’re also just teenagers navigating relationships, triumphs, and setbacks both academic and personal, and the stressful task of applying for college. To name just a few, there’s William, the multi-faceted prodigy who’s so driven he aces AP exams for classes he didn’t even take; Ethan, who essentially outgrows high school in his junior year and founds his own company to commercialize a discovery he made in the class; and Sophia, a Lyme disease patient whose ambitious work is dedicated to curing her own debilitating ailment.

      In this intimate look at a year in the life of “Mr. B” and his students, journalist Heather Won Tesoriero embeds in their unconventional classroom as they brainstorm and bring to life their professional-level projects. Over the course of the 2016-17 school year—which turns out to be the most decorated year ever for Andy and his kids—we experience the thrill of discovery, the heartache of failed experiments, the ups and downs of the science-fair circuit, and perhaps the highest of all highs: a “yes” from Harvard. In the end, The Class is a heartfelt testament to the power of a great teacher to help kids realize their unlimited potential.

      “A complex portrait of the ups and downs of teaching in a culture that undervalues what teaching delivers.”The Wall Street Journal

      “Captivating …Journalist Tesoriero left her job at CBS News to embed herself in Bramante’s classroom for the academic year, and she does this so successfully, a reader forgets she is even there. Her skill at drawing out not only Bramante but also the personal lives, hopes and concerns of these students is impressive. Clearly, she created a level of trust that enabled her to tell their stories so honestly and compellingly…. It is a fascinating glimpse of a teaching environment that most public school teachers will never know.”The Washington Post

      “Schools matter. The teachers inside those schools matter. The Class shows us what amazing things can happen when those two things come together…. [The Class is] more than a story of Andy Bramante and his students. It’s also a roadmap to improving our educational systems and the unimaginable bounties waiting if we do.”Seattle Post-Intelligencer

      “Tesoriero’s account should serve as a reminder of what our schools can be, everywhere in America…. The [students’] stories are both heartbreaking and inspiring. In the end, one cannot help but root for all of these talented teenagers. ”Bookreporter

      “[An] inspiring account of how a high school science teacher mentors and motivates his prize-winning pupils … The students’ kindnesses, worries, feuds, and projects are…sketched so lovingly that readers cannot help rooting for them. With its winning mix of human-interest and scientific innovation, this book will appeal to general readers and fans of pop science alike.”Publishers Weekly

      “Tesoriero, a former TV news producer and newspaper reporter, captures with humor and empathy the lives and dreams of an extraordinary group of students…. Tesoriero makes a strong case for the importance of science and inspirational teachers…. Recommended for readers of Alexandra Robbins’s works, The Overachievers: The Secret Lives of Driven Kids and The Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth.”Library Journal

      “A riveting look at a year in the life of an inspiring teacher and how he is helping kids create amazing and award-winning science projects. With the turn of every page, we see the joys of discovery and the immense satisfaction this brings to Andy Bramante, who made a life choice that transforms his students’ lives every day.”—Walter Isaacson, author of the New York Times bestseller Steve Jobs

      “In The Class, a devoted teacher and his driven students provide something like a perfect picture of what it means to be human: striving with a noble purpose, failing with resilience, and always finding humor and humanity even in the face of tremendous pressure. Both teacher and students will surely teach you many things, but perhaps more important than the lessons is the sheer wonder inhabiting these pages. In its light you will be transported to a place and time of life when the simple desire to reach for the undiscovered can lead to remarkable achievements. This book is a remarkable achievement.”—Jeff Hobbs, author of the New York Times bestseller The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace

      “Heather Won Tesoriero’s breezy, even whimsical voice coupled with her off-the-charts emotional intelligence and stunning powers of observation launches The Class into one of its own.”—Jonathan LaPook, M.D., chief medical correspondent, CBS News

      Description
      In this powerful novel, #1 New York Times bestselling author Danielle Steel tells the story of two World War II concentration camp survivors, the life they build together, and the son who faces struggles of his own as a first-generation American determined to be his own person and achieve success.

      When U.S. troops occupy Germany, friends Jakob and Emmanuelle are saved from the terrible fate of so many in the camps. With the help of sponsors, they make their way to New York. In order not to be separated, they allow their friendship to blossom into love and marriage, and start a new life on the Lower East Side, working at grueling, poorly paid jobs.

      Decades later, through talent, faith, fortune, and relentless hard work, Jakob has achieved success in the diamond business, invested in real estate in New York, and shown his son, Max, that America is truly the land of opportunity. Max is a rising star, a graduate of Harvard with friends among the wealthiest, most ambitious families in the world. And while his parents were thrown together by chance, Max chooses a perfect bride to start the perfect American family.

      An opulent society wedding. A honeymoon in Tahiti. A palatial home in Greenwich. Max’s lavish lifestyle is unimaginable to his cautious old-world father and mother. Max wants to follow his father’s example and make his own fortune. But after the birth of children, and with a failing marriage, he can no longer deny that his wife is not the woman he thought she was. Angry and afraid, Max must do what he has never done before: struggle, persevere, and learn what it means to truly walk in his father’s footsteps, while pursuing his own ideals and setting an example for his children.

      Moving from the ashes of postwar Europe to the Lower East Side of New York to wealth, success, and unlimited luxury, In His Father’s Footsteps is a stirring tale of three generations of strong, courageous, and loving people who pay their dues to achieve their goals.

      Description
      In Danielle Steel’s powerful new novel, four trauma doctors—the best and brightest in their field—confront exciting new challenges, both personally and professionally, when given a rare opportunity.



      Bill Browning heads the trauma unit at San Francisco’s busiest emergency room, SF General. With his ex-wife and daughters in London, he immerses himself in his work and lives for his rare visits with his children. A rising star at her teaching hospital, UCSF at Mission Bay, Stephanie Lawrence has two young sons, a frustrated stay-at-home husband, and not enough time for any of them. Harvard-educated Wendy Jones is a dedicated trauma doctor at Stanford, trapped in a dead-end relationship with a married cardiac surgeon. And Tom Wylie’s popularity with women rivals the superb medical skills he employs at his Oakland medical center, but he refuses to let anyone get too close, determined to remain unattached forever.

      These exceptional doctors are chosen for an honor and a unique project: to work with their counterparts in Paris in a mass-casualty training program. As professionals, they will gain invaluable knowledge from the program. As ordinary men and women, they will find that the City of Light opens up incredible new possibilities, exhilarating, enticing, and frightening.

      When an unspeakable act of mass violence galvanizes them into action, their temporary life in Paris becomes a stark turning point: a time to face harder choices than they have ever made before—with consequences that will last a lifetime.

      Description
      When a ransom exchange turns violent in this thrilling mystery from New York Times bestselling author Anne Perry, Commander William Monk faces an unthinkable possibility: betrayal by his own men.

      Local businessman Harry Exeter doesn’t want the aid of the Thames River Police in tracking down the men who kidnapped his wife, Kate. He only asks them to help him navigate Jacob’s Island, a creepy mass of decrepit buildings where he will hand off a large sum of money in exchange for her life. But when they arrive at the meeting place, Commander Monk and five of his best men are attacked from all sides, and Monk is left wondering who could have given away their plans—and why anyone would want to harm Kate Exeter.

      As Monk follows leads from Kate’s worried cousin and a crafty clerk at the bank where Exeter gathered the ransom money, it seems inevitable that one of his own men has betrayed him. Delving into their pasts, he realizes how little he knows about the people he works with every day, including his trusted right-hand man John Hooper, the one colleague Monk has always been certain he can count on. Even as they identify one of the kidnappers, the case runs into hurdle after hurdle, causing Monk to choose between his own safety and the chance to solve the case—and figure out where his men’s loyalty really lies.

      In this intriguing, uplifting holiday mystery from bestselling author Anne Perry, an orphan boy investigates a woman’s kidnapping—and discovers there’s more at stake than a disappearance.

      When Worm, a young orphan boy who works at the local clinic, sees Eloise being kidnapped by two men in the days leading up to Christmas, he immediately recruits Squeaky Robinson to help rescue her. But as they track Eloise down, they’re surprised to hear that she does not, in fact, wish to be rescued. Instead, Eloise intends to bring the kidnappers, who drew her father into their shady business deals and then murdered him, to justice. The kidnappers are skilled illusionists, and after they try their tricks on Worm and Squeaky, the friends are determined to help Eloise with her plan—and they might just be able to use the kidnappers’ tricks against them.

      Description
      Debbie Macomber brings us to the Alaskan wilderness for a magical Christmas tale about finding love where it’s least expected.

      Before beginning her dream job as sous chef in one of Seattle’s hottest new restaurants, Josie Avery takes a summer position cooking at a lakeside lodge in the remote Alaskan town of Ponder. Josie falls for the rustic charms of the local community—including Jack Corcoran, the crotchety keeper of Ponder’s famed sourdough starter, and, in particular, the quiet and intense Palmer Saxon, a famed master swordsmith.

      Josie and Palmer become close during the long Alaskan summer days, but Josie knows that, come fall, she’ll be returning to reality and the career she’s worked so hard for. Palmer, on the other hand, would like nothing better than to make Josie his wife and to keep her in Ponder. But Josie can’t imagine abandoning her mother back in the Emerald City and sacrificing her career to stay in this isolated town—not even for a man she’s quickly coming to love.

      Fate has other plans. Josie misses the last boat out of town before winter sets in, stranding her in Ponder and putting her dream job at risk. As the holidays approach, Josie and Palmer must grapple with the complications that arise when dreams confront reality, and the Christmas magic that can happen when they put their faith in love.

      Debbie Macomber is at her best in this beautiful holiday story about the far journeys we travel to find a place to call home.

      The first volume of a four-part, full-color graphic novel adaptation of the second book in George R.R. Martin’s landmark Song of Ice and Fire series, the inspiration for HBO’s Game of Thrones.

      Time is out of joint. The summer of peace and plenty, ten years long, is drawing to a close, and the harsh, chill winter approaches like an angry beast. Two great leaders—Lord Eddard Stark and Robert Baratheon—who held sway over an age of enforced peace are dead…victims of royal treachery. Now, from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns, as pretenders to the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms prepare to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war.

      As a prophecy of doom cuts across the sky—a comet the color of blood and flame—six factions struggle for control of a divided land. Eddard’s son Robb has declared himself King in the North. In the south, Joffrey, the heir apparent, rules in name only, victim of the scheming courtiers who teem over King’s Landing. Robert’s two brothers each seek their own dominion, while a disfavored house turns once more to conquest. And a continent away, an exiled queen, the Mother of Dragons, risks everything to lead her precious brood across a hard hot desert to win back the crown that is rightfully hers.

      Bio
      Before she was one of New York’s favorite restaurateurs, Emily Hyland was an English teacher, a yoga instructor, and a poet. After meeting her husband, Matt, during college in Rhode Island, her early love of great food (especially pizza!) blossomed and she quickly took over front of house duties at their restaurants Emily, Emmy Squared and Emily Village. Matt is Emily restaurant’s chef and creator of the recipes that have made it famous. A native of Connecticut, a state where excellent pizza is a way of life, Matt Hyland came to his appreciation of great pies at an early age. After training at a variety of restaurants in New York, he perfected his craft as a pizzaiolo, and developed a unique approach to making American pizza with timeless techniques. Emily and Matt live in Brooklyn where they make and eat lots of pizza.
