Following a scalding row with her mother, fifteen-year-old Holly Sykes slams the door on her old life. But Holly is no typical teenage runaway: a sensitive child once contacted by voices she knew only as "the radio people," Holly is a lightning rod for psychic phenomena. Now, as she wanders deeper into the English countryside, visions and coincidences reorder her reality until they assume the aura of a nightmare brought to life. For Holly has caught the attention of a cabal of dangerous mystics -- and their enemies. But her lost weekend is merely the prelude to a shocking disappearance that leaves her family irrevocably scarred. This unsolved mystery will echo through every decade of Holly's life, affecting all the people Holly loves -- even the ones who are not yet born. A Cambridge scholarship boy grooming himself for wealth and influence, a conflicted father who feels alive only while reporting from occupied Iraq, a middle-aged writer mourning his exile from the bestseller list -- all have a part to play in this surreal, invisible war on the margins of our world. From the medieval Swiss Alps to the nineteenth-century Australian bush, from a hotel in Shanghai to a Manhattan townhouse in the near future, their stories come together in moments of everyday grace and extraordinary wonder

But what really goes on inside Slade House? For those who find out, it's already too late" --

The baddest woman in town is not a gangster girl or a ride-or-die chick--she's a third generation assassin who has plans to change the world. Born and raised in the nation's capital, Samara Brown was taught by her military trained father how to eliminate opposition. Samara's mother taught her how to out think her opponents and overcome them without force. Life taught her how to combine the two and play to win. She successfully establishes a community center to help change the lives of the youth in her ward.

Samara's disdain for the police and politicians gain her more enemies within the government. Will Samara's skills be enough to overcome those out to get her?

La razón por la que salto by Naoki Higashida( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in Spanish and held by 82 libraries worldwide
Cuando, con trece años, Naoki Higashida empezó a comunicarse a través de una parrilla de ideogramas diseñada por su madre, estaba haciendo historia. Nunca antes un niño aquejado de un grado de autismo tan severo había conseguido transmitir, comunicarse, expresarse. Si bien las consideradas condiciones del espectro autista no son nunca exactamente iguales en dos personas, sí que comparten un rasgo: en mayor o menor medida, afectan su capacidad de comunicación e interrelación con los demás. Naoki consigue traducir su experiencia a un lenguaje comprensible para cualquier lector a través de preguntas como: ¿por qué los autistas habláis tan alto y tan raro?; ¿por qué os gusta poner vuestros coches de juguete en fila y ordenar todos los bloques de los juegos de construcción?; ¿por qué saltas? Sus respuestas son optimistas y transmiten alegría de vivir, ternura y, sobre todo, nos presentan a alguien admirable de quien hay mucho que aprender
