A boy named Seth drowns, losing his life as the pounding sea claims him. But then he wakes. He is naked, thirsty, starving. But alive. How is that possible? He remembers dying. So how is he here? And where is this place? It looks like the suburban English town where he lived as a child, before an unthinkable tragedy happened and his family moved to America. But the neighborhood around his old house is overgrown, covered in dust, and completely abandoned. What's going on? And why is it that whenever he closes his eyes, he falls prey to vivid, agonizing memories that seem more real than the world around him?

"One night, George Duncan - decent man, a good man - is woken by a noise in his garden. Impossibly, a great white crane has tumbled to earth, shot through its wing by an arrow.

Suddenly a new world opens up for George, and one night she starts to tell him the most extraordinary story. Wise, romantic, magical and funny, The Crane Wife is a hymn to the creative imagination and a celebration of the disruptive and redemptive power of love."--Provided by publisher

Boyle Welcome to the seaside metropolis of Hennington, where a mysterious herd of rhinoceros has wandered city streets for so long it's become a civic feature, where the current mayor first met her husband on a nude beach, and where Jon Noth has returned after four decades to reclaim a lost love.

Topics about which I know nothing by Patrick Ness ( Book )
5 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is a world ruled by fashion and the media, by branding and self-help jargon, by disinformation and paranoia, but it is a world where those that are being ruled tend not to comply readily, to forget themselves, to disobey and disappear. It all makes for a novel that crackles with tension, wit and awe

Sieben Minuten nach Mitternacht by Patrick Ness ( Book )
13 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in German and Undetermined and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Conors Mutter, mit der er alleine lebt, ist schwerkrank. Die Behandlungen gegen ihre Krebserkrankung schlagen weniger gut an als erhofft, so dass die ungeliebte Grossmutter das Regiment im Hause übernimmt. Aber nicht nur sie greift entschieden in das Leben des Jungen ein, sondern auch ein mächtiges Monster, das sich aus der Eibe auf dem nahe gelegenen Friedhof zu entwickeln scheint, aber in Wahrheit in Connor selbst steckt. Verlässlich um sieben Minuten nach Mitternacht taucht es auf - später auch einmal in der Schule, um Connor in einer Mobbing-Situation beizustehen - und jedes Mal lernt Connor eine Lektion mehr über das Loslassen eines geliebten Menschen. Patrick Ness erzählt in der Verwobenheit von Wirklichkeit und Phantasie die Geschichte eines Trauerprozesses in all seinen Facetten von Kummer, Verzweiflung, Wut, dem Wunsch, dass es doch endlich so weit wäre, und von Scham darüber, dies zu denken. Bettina Abarbanell hat die Geschichte in einem würdigen Erzählton übersetzt. Die aus alten Mythen und Sagen entliehene Figur des Monsters ist eine überzeugende Metapher für das Unfassbare des Todes, für Endlichkeit, für die alte Frage nach dem Guten und nach dem Bösen. Sieben Minuten nach Mitternacht ist ein poetischer und kraftvoller Roman, der dem kindlichen Leser eine wichtige Geschichte über das Leben erzählt - und über dessen Ende.
