    Synopsis
    This, too, is a jungle. The rules I need to follow are those of teeth and claw! Jimmy moves from his home at the edge of the Seeonee forest to the big, bad capital where he learns to deal with complicated bus routes, unscrupulous property brokers and shady local goons. Along the way he makes a few good friends and volunteers his services as a translator for the Bandar-log when he realizes that, like his grandfather Mowgli, he can speak the language of the monkeys. But Jimmy's life is thrown off course when he is kidnapped by Shamsher Khan, an evil poacher and arms dealer. His friend Heera launches a rescue mission, together with her mentor Guru KA and Inspector A. Kala, while Grandpa Mowgli and the Bandar-log set out on a crosscountry chase that ends in a thrilling climax. The Urban Jungle is a witty contemporary interpretation of Kipling's original tale. With the flair and energy of a master storyteller, Samrat shows us that even in modern cities it is ultimately the law of the jungle that reigns supreme.

    Synopsis
    Nobel Prize-winning writer André Gide marks his voyage toward self-discovery in this imaginative allegorical work.  When Urien and his sailing companions begin their voyage, it is to places unknown and, perhaps, only dreamed. This allegorical masterpiece from André Gide, a key figure of French letters, deftly illustrates the techniques and doctrine of the Symbolist movement - and the dual nature of Gide’s own psyche. Written at a crucial time in his artistic development, this imaginative work signals his gradual abandonment of acetic celibacy toward an embrace of pleasure and carnal desires, revealing a Gide more transparent in this early work than in his mature writings.  Translator and scholar Wade Baskin annotates the work, connecting Gide’s life and bibliography to the text.

    Us Conductors is the imagined story of Lev Sergeyvich Termen, inventor of the theremin—one of the first electric musical instruments—and his unrequited love for Clara Rockmore, its greatest player. A tale of espionage and electricity, it takes listeners from the gardens of St. Petersburg to the Jazz Age nightclubs of New York, through concert halls, speakeasies, and the Siberian wastes.Sean Michaels' debut novel is based on the true events of Termen's life: his invention of the theremin in Russia shortly after the Bolshevik Revolution; his decade as a Manhattan celebrity and secret spy, jostling with Gershwin and building weapon detectors for Alcatraz; and his eventual return to Stalin's USSR.As the novel reaches its devastating climax, Termen is sent out into the gulag—first to a forced labor camp and then to a prison for scientists—and bears witness to some of the Cold War's deepest atrocities. But like the theremin, Us Conductors is also an eerie and magical invention. Subtle, thrilling, and melancholy, it is a story of secrets, of human ingenuity, of the lengths one goes to survive, and ultimately of the undiminishing hope for love that keeps us alive.

    We all knew about Cullen Hickson. Siblings Bri and Ray O'Dell are lost. Anxious. Restless. Ray - bullied at his Catholic school for being small and timid - wants to be someone people respect, or, even better, someone people fear. Meanwhile, Bri knows that something is off about her friendship with the shiny, happy, sophisticated blond girls on her field hockey team. They don't really understand Bri, and if Bri is being totally honest, she doesn't really understand them either. When storied delinquent Cullen Hickson enters the orbit of the O'Dell siblings, though, everything changes. Bri and Ray find an alluring, addictive outlet in Cullen, who opens their eyes to a world they didn't know existed. For Ray, that means experiencing the singular thrill of crime - from breaking and entering to grand theft auto - while Bri quickly dives into an all-consuming romance with the enigmatic upperclassman. As Bri and Ray become more and more entwined with Cullen's antics, and their once-thrilling experiences grow increasingly dangerous, a series of life-changing events threatens to lead the teens down a dark path - one that could forever alter the course of their lives.

    Synopsis
    Anna remembers a time before boys, when she and her mom were a family, just the two of them against the world. But now her mom’s gone most of the time, chasing the next marriage, and Anna is left to grow up alone. Until she discovers that boys can fill the void - from Desmond to Joey to Todd. But the price is high. The other kids make fun of her; the girls call her a slut. Anna’s new friend, Toy, seems to have found a way around the loneliness, but Toy has her own secrets that even Anna can’t know. Then comes Sam. When Anna actually meets a boy who is more than just useful, whose family eats dinner together, laughs, and tells stories, the truth about love becomes clear. And she finally learns how it feels to have something to lose - and something to offer. Real, shocking, uplifting, and stunningly lyrical, Uses for Boys is a story of the lives and families we build when they’re not handed to us, of losing and finding, breaking down and growing up. “Haunting, frank, and un-put-down-able.” - Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “Like its narrator, Uses for Boys is poetic, edgy, and strong....I finished it in two sittings and sobbed at the end.” - Francesca Lia Block, New York Times bestselling author of Weetzie Bat “If somebody had handed me this book when I was fifteen, I would have felt 75 percent less alone and 100 percent less crazy.” - Pam Houston, author of Contents May Have Shifted “Some writers know how to make something terribly complicated and true...simple. With stark, lucid prose, [Scheidt] hones in on that experience we girls know well: We believe boys will fill our emptiness.” - Kerry Cohen, author of Loose Girl

    Synopsis
    Author Philip Robinson blends reality with a dose of the outlandish in this fast-paced thriller: Kraken Corporation is too big to fail…or control. Spreading its tentacles into every profit centre around the globe—oil, gold, diamonds—it takes what it wants and leaves behind a path of death and destruction. When Emma Baine, heir to Kraken, publicly announces her intention to end the corporation’s history of profiteering, murder, and monopoly, a bomb explodes on the rostrum, killing her instantly. To her brother Carson, it’s the perfect punch line to Emma’s childish statement. He took out his sister, and now he’s going to take over the firm. Using Kraken’s “private security force,” a mercenary army that rolls over every obstacle to profitability, and the USS Alcatraz, an old Russian nuclear sub retrofitted into a gargantuan underwater prison, Carson imprisons everyone he perceives as an enemy—while the highest figures in government turn a blind eye. But there’s one obstacle Carson can’t grind under his heel: an ex-Marine named Vaughan. As Emma’s former lover and bodyguard, Vaughn is tough, smart…and very angry.
