The Girl Who Lived: A Thrilling Suspense Novel
As the anniversary of the murders approaches, Faith Winters is released from the psychiatric hospital and yanked back to the last spot on earth she wants to be—her hometown where the slayings took place. Wracked by the lingering echoes of survivor’s guilt, Faith spirals into a black hole of alcoholism and wanton self-destruction. Finding no solace at the bottom of a bottle, Faith decides to track down her sister’s killer—only to discover that she’s the one being hunted.
How can one woman uncover the truth when everyone’s a suspect—including herself?

Notes on the etiquette and customs of the times, quotes from the characters, and descriptions of the scenes in which the foods appear provide vivid context for the dishes.

Jovanotti, talvolta accreditato come Lorenzo Jovanotti, pseudonimo di Lorenzo Cherubini (Roma, 27 settembre 1966), è un cantautore, rapper e disc jockey italiano.
Diventa famoso alla fine degli anni ottanta, lanciato da Claudio Cecchetto. Dalla commistione di rap dei primi successi, tuttavia, Jovanotti si discosta ben presto avvicinandosi gradualmente al modello della world music (sempre interpretata in chiave hip hop e funky). All’evoluzione musicale corrisponde un mutare dei testi dei suoi brani, che, nel corso degli anni, tendono a toccare temi sempre più personali, più tipici dello stile cantautorale italiano.
Parallelamente aumenta anche il suo impegno sociale e politico. Pacifista attivo, ha frequentemente collaborato con associazioni come Emergency, Amnesty International, Lega anti vivisezione, Nigrizia e DATA, ha contribuito alle manifestazioni in favore della cancellazione del debito negli anni novanta e successivamente ai movimenti Niente scuse e Make Poverty History, partecipando al Live 8.
A grand vision defined: The CEO of Disney, one of Time’s most influential people of 2019, shares the ideas and values he embraced to reinvent one of the most beloved companies in the world and inspire the people who bring the magic to life.
Robert Iger became CEO of The Walt Disney Company in 2005, during a difficult time. Competition was more intense than ever and technology was changing faster than at any time in the company’s history. His vision came down to three clear ideas: Recommit to the concept that quality matters, embrace technology instead of fighting it, and think bigger—think global—and turn Disney into a stronger brand in international markets.
Twelve years later, Disney is the largest, most respected media company in the world, counting Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm, and 21st Century Fox among its properties. Its value is nearly five times what it was when Iger took over, and he is recognized as one of the most innovative and successful CEOs of our era.
In The Ride of a Lifetime, Robert Iger shares the lessons he’s learned while running Disney and leading its 200,000 employees, and he explores the principles that are necessary for true leadership, including:
• Optimism. Even in the face of difficulty, an optimistic leader will find the path toward the best possible outcome and focus on that, rather than give in to pessimism and blaming.
• Courage. Leaders have to be willing to take risks and place big bets. Fear of failure destroys creativity.
• Decisiveness. All decisions, no matter how difficult, can be made on a timely basis. Indecisiveness is both wasteful and destructive to morale.
• Fairness. Treat people decently, with empathy, and be accessible to them.
Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor and award-winning artist Rafael Lopez create a kind and caring book about the differences that make each of us unique.
Feeling different, especially as a kid, can be tough. But in the same way that different types of plants and flowers make a garden more beautiful and enjoyable, different types of people make our world more vibrant and wonderful.
In Just Ask, United States Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor celebrates the different abilities kids (and people of all ages) have. Using her own experience as a child who was diagnosed with diabetes, Justice Sotomayor writes about children with all sorts of challenges–and looks at the special powers those kids have as well. As the kids work together to build a community garden, asking questions of each other along the way, this book encourages readers to do the same: When we come across someone who is different from us but we’re not sure why, all we have to do is Just Ask.
Praise for Just Ask:
* “Addressing topics too often ignored, this picture book presents information in a direct and wonderfully child-friendly way.” —Booklist, *STARRED REVIEW*
