I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban
by #MalalaYousafzai, #ChristinaLamb

I come from a country that was created at midnight. When I almost died it was just after midday.

When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education.

On Tuesday, October 9, 2012, when she was fifteen, she almost paid the ultimate price. She was shot in the head at point-blank range while riding the bus home from school, and few expected her to survive.
Instead, Malala's miraculous recovery has taken her on an extraordinary journey from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations in New York. At sixteen, she has become a global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest nominee ever for the Nobel Peace Prize.

I Am Malala is the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by global terrorism, of the fight for girls' education, of a father who, himself a school owner, championed and encouraged his daughter to write and attend school, and of brave parents who have a fierce love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons.

I Am Malala will make you believe in the power of one person's voice to inspire change in the world.

The Reason I Jump: The Inner Voice of a Thirteen-Year-Old Boy with Autism
by #NaokiHigashida, K.A. Yoshida (Translator), David Mitchell (Translator)
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

You’ve never read a book like The Reason I Jump. Written by Naoki Higashida, a very smart, very self-aware, and very charming thirteen-year-old boy with autism, it is a one-of-a-kind memoir that demonstrates how an autistic mind thinks, feels, perceives, and responds in ways few of us can imagine. Parents and family members who never thought they could get inside the head of their autistic loved one at last have a way to break through to the curious, subtle, and complex life within.
Using an alphabet grid to painstakingly construct words, sentences, and thoughts that he is unable to speak out loud, Naoki answers even the most delicate questions that people want to know. Questions such as: “Why do people with autism talk so loudly and weirdly?” “Why do you line up your toy cars and blocks?” “Why don’t you make eye contact when you’re talking?” and “What’s the reason you jump?” (Naoki’s answer: “When I’m jumping, it’s as if my feelings are going upward to the sky.”) With disarming honesty and a generous heart, Naoki shares his unique point of view on not only autism but life itself. His insights—into the mystery of words, the wonders of laughter, and the elusiveness of memory—are so startling, so strange, and so powerful that you will never look at the world the same way again.
In his introduction, bestselling novelist David Mitchell writes that Naoki’s words allowed him to feel, for the first time, as if his own autistic child was explaining what was happening in his mind. “It is no exaggeration to say that The Reason I Jump allowed me to round a corner in our relationship.” This translation was a labor of love by David and his wife, KA Yoshida, so they’d be able to share that feeling with friends, the wider autism community, and beyond. Naoki’s book, in its beauty, truthfulness, and simplicity, is a gift to be shared.

_weheartebooks The Girl from the Well
by #RinChupeco

You may think me biased, being murdered myself. But my state of being has nothing to do with the curiosity toward my own species, if we can be called such. We do not go gentle, as your poet encourages, into that good night.
A dead girl walks the streets.

She hunts murderers. Child killers, much like the man who threw her body down a well three hundred years ago.

And when a strange boy bearing stranger tattoos moves into the neighborhood so, she discovers, does something else. And soon both will be drawn into the world of eerie doll rituals and dark Shinto exorcisms that will take them from American suburbia to the remote valleys and shrines of Aomori, Japan.

Because the boy has a terrifying secret - one that would just kill to get out.

The Girl from the Well is A YA Horror novel pitched as "Dexter" meets "The Grudge", based on a well-loved Japanese ghost story.#Goodreads.com #ebooks #epub #fiction #LOVE #booknerd #bookjunkie #bestseller #bookoftheday #novel #kindle #aldiko #ibooks #tbt #wcw #bookaddict #newyorktimes #nytimes #googlebooks #paypal #amazon #bookworm #booklover #book #pasttime #bookwhore #ilovebooks #WeHeartEBooks

_weheartebooks Find Me (Find Me #1)
by #RomilyBernard

“Find Me.” These are the words written on Tessa Waye’s diary. The diary that ends up with Wick Tate. But Tessa’s just been found . . . dead.

Wick has the right computer-hacking skills for the job, but little interest in this perverse game of hide-and-seek. Until her sister Lily is the next target.

Then Griff, trailer-park boy next door and fellow hacker, shows up, intent on helping Wick. Is a happy ending possible with the threat of Wick’s deadbeat dad returning, the detective hunting him sniffing around Wick instead, and a killer taunting her at every step?

Foster child. Daughter of a felon. Loner hacker girl. Wick has a bad attitude and sarcasm to spare.

But she’s going to find this killer no matter what.

Because it just got personal.#Goodreads.com #ebooks #epub #fiction #LOVE #booknerd #bookjunkie #bestseller #bookoftheday #novel #kindle #aldiko #ibooks #tbt #wcw #bookaddict #newyorktimes #nytimes #googlebooks #paypal #amazon #bookworm #booklover #book #pasttime #bookwhore #ilovebooks #WeHeartEBooks

_weheartebooks Lost in Love (Summerhill #2)
by #KatePerry

Portia Summerhill feels like a loser.

Thirty-something, jobless, and living at home... How could she not? Next to her accomplished sisters, Portia's achievements--or lack thereof--are that much more noticeable.

The one thing Portia can claim is expert knowledge on antiques and her ancestry, and in a moment of serendipity, the perfect job lands in her lap: curator at the Museum of British Peerage. There's one caveat: the museum won't hire her unless she brings the family jewels with her. Or, more specifically, the infamous Summerhill tiara.

Except a cowboy hotelier stands between her and her tiara. Jackson Waite needs help getting his newest posh hotel launched and, luckily for Portia, he's willing to make a trade. If she helps him meet the deadline for his new resort, he'll give her the tiara. Only, the more time she spends with Jackson, the more Portia wonders if she wants the tiara or the man keeping it from her.#Goodreads.com #ebooks #epub #fiction #LOVE #booknerd #bookjunkie #bestseller #bookoftheday #novel #kindle #aldiko #ibooks #tbt #wcw #bookaddict #newyorktimes #nytimes #googlebooks #paypal #amazon #bookworm #booklover #book #pasttime #bookwhore #ilovebooks #WeHeartEBooks

by #ElizabethScott

Kate Brown's life has gone downhill fast.

Her father has quit his job to sell vitamins at the mall, and Kate is forced to work with him. Her best friend has become popular, and now she acts like Kate's invisible.

And then there's Will. Gorgeous, unattainable Will, whom Kate acts like she can't stand even though she can't stop thinking about him. When Will starts acting interested, Kate hates herself for wanting him when she's sure she's just his latest conquest.

Kate figures that the only way things will ever stop hurting so much is if she keeps to herself and stops caring about anyone or anything. What she doesn't realize is that while life may not always be perfect, good things can happen -- but only if she lets them..#Goodreads.com #ebooks #epub #fiction #LOVE #booknerd #bookjunkie #bestseller #bookoftheday #novel #kindle #aldiko #ibooks #tbt #wcw #bookaddict #newyorktimes #nytimes #googlebooks #paypal #amazon #bookworm #booklover #book #pasttime #bookwhore #ilovebooks #WeHeartEBooks

by #ElizabethScott

Once upon a time, I was a little girl who disappeared.
Once upon a time, my name was not Alice.
Once upon a time, I didn't know how lucky I was.
When Alice was ten, Ray took her away from her family, her friends -- her life. She learned to give up all power, to endure all pain. She waited for the nightmare to be over.
Now Alice is fifteen and Ray still has her, but he speaks more and more of her death. He does not know it is what she longs for. She does not know he has something more terrifying than death in mind for her.
This is Alice's story. It is one you have never heard, and one you will never, ever forget.#Goodreads.com #ebooks #epub #fiction #LOVE #booknerd #bookjunkie #bestseller #bookoftheday #novel #kindle #aldiko #ibooks #tbt #wcw #bookaddict #newyorktimes #nytimes #googlebooks #paypal #amazon #bookworm #booklover #book #pasttime #bookwhore #ilovebooks #WeHeartEBooks
