The Grand Sophy (Regency Romances), by Georgette Heyer.

New York Times Bestseller!
Sophy sets everything right for her desperate family in one of Georgette Heyer's most popular Regency romances.
When Lady Ombersley agrees to take in her young niece, no one expects Sophy, who sweeps in and immediately takes the ton by storm. Sophy discovers that her aunt's family is in desperate need of her talent for setting everything right: Ceclia is in love with a poet, Charles has tyrannical tendencies that are being aggravated by his grim fiancee, her uncle is of no use at all, and the younger children are in desperate need of some fun and freedom. By the time she's done, Sophy has commandeered Charles's horses, his household, and finally, his heart.

Cruel Death, by M. William Phelps.

"Phelps is one of America's finest true-crime writers." --Vincent Bugliosi

"Phelps is the Harlan Coben of real-life thrillers." –Allison Brennan

It was Memorial Day weekend, the start of the summer season. Thousands headed to Ocean City, Maryland, to enjoy its scenic beaches, lively boardwalk, and trendy nightclubs. Among the bright-spirited vacationers was a couple with a much darker idea of fun. Erica Sifrit, a former honor student, was packing a gun in her Coach bag. Her husband, B.J., an ex-Navy SEAL, was trained in violence. What started as a chance encounter with another couple ended with two dismembered victims buried in a Delaware landfill. M. William Phelps updates this modern-day "Bonnie and Clyde" saga to create a haunting account of money, madness, sex, and murder. . .

Praise for M. William Phelps

"Phelps's writing reads like a mystery novel." --Suspense Magazine
"One of our most engaging crime journalists." --Katherine Ramsland

*SPECIAL INTRODUCTORY PRICE*

The year was 2014. We had cured cancer. We had beat the common cold. But in doing so we created something new, something terrible that no one could stop. The infection spread, virus blocks taking over bodies and minds with one, unstoppable command: FEED.

FEED is the electrifying and critically acclaimed novel of a world a half-step from our own---a novel of geeks, zombies, politics and social media.

Five Regency romances by Georgette Heyer.





Here's today's Daily Youth Deal, available for $1.99!

The Book of a Thousand Days, by Shannon Hale.

Based on a classic Grimm's fairy tale, this is the story told by Dashti, a maid from the steppes of a medieval land, who sacrifices her freedom to accompany her mistress into exile. Imprisoned in a remote tower after Lady Saren refuses to marry the man her father has chosen, the maid and the lady have almost nothing in common. But the loyalty that grows between the two, the man they love in different ways for different reasons, and the lies they tell because of and in spite of each other, combine to evoke the deepest bonds, transcend the loneliest landscapes, and erupt in a conclusion so romantic, so clever, and so right that no reader will be left dry-eyed.

336 pages, with a 4.4-star rating from 247 reviews

For middle grade students.



Happy Reading!
