Dill has had to wrestle with vipers his whole life - at home, as the only son of a Pentecostal minister who urges him to handle poisonous rattlesnakes; and at school, where he faces down bullies who target him for his father´s extreme faith and very public fall from grace. He and his fellow outcast friends must try to make it through their senior year of high school without letting the small-town culture destroy their creative spirits and senses of self. Graduation will lead to new beginnings for Lydia, whose edgy fashion blog is her ticket out of their rural Tennessee town. And Travis is content where he is thanks to his obsession with an epic book series and the fangirl turning his reality into real-life fantasy. Their diverging paths could mean the end of their friendship. But not before Dill confronts his dark legacy to attempt to find a way into the light of a future worth living. Includes the song ´´Birds Fly South´´, performed by the author and Elin Palmer. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Crouch, Ariadne Meyers, Ethan Sawyer.

Go behind the window displays. Behind the racks. Two personal shoppers for Manhattan´s biggest department stores have written a wildly dishy novel that goes behind the dressing rooms of New York´s fashion elite. At Frankel´s New York, the wives of billionaires and Hollywood celebrities sip champagne while stylists and tailors cater to every whim. And one person has made it her career to help these Amex-wielding shoppers create the perfect look. Bonnie Salerno Madden knows all of her client´s preferences, whims, and fantasies. She knows the price they paid to gain access to the salon where having Bonnie as their private shopper is a first-class ticket to being the toast of the New York high-fashion social scene. But while Bonnie is all elegance on the outside, she´s barely keeping it together on the inside. A single mom to a special needs child, she needs her high-pressure job to care for her family. And when that job is put in jeopardy, Bonnie will need to make some of the riskiest choices of her life to guarantee a better future for her son, and for herself. With the opportunity to live in her own fairy tale, will Bonnie have what it takes to make the trade off? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tamara Marston.

Elizabeth Hand’s writing honors include the Shirley Jackson Award, the James Tiptree Award, the Nebula Award, the World Fantasy Award, the International Horror Guild Award, and many others. Now, this uniquely gifted storyteller brings us a searing and iconoclastic crime novel, in which photographer Cass Neary, introduced in the underground classic Generation Loss, finds herself drawn into the shadowy world of crime in Scandinavia’s coldest corners. As this riveting tour-de-force opens, the police already want to talk to Cass about a mysterious death she was involved with previously, but before they can bring her in, Cass accepts a job offer from overseas and hops on a plane. In Helsinki, she authenticates a series of disturbing but stunning images taken by a famous fashion photographer who has cut himself off from the violent Nordic music scene where he first made his reputation. Paid off by her shady employer, she buys a one-way ticket to Reykjavik, in search of a lover from her own dark past. But when the fashion photographer’s mutilated corpse is discovered back in Finland, Cass finds herself sucked into a vortex of ancient myth and betrayal, vengeance and serial murder, set against a bone-splintering soundtrack of black metal and the terrifying beauty of the sunless Icelandic wilderness. In this eagerly awaited sequel to the award-winning Generation Loss, Cass Neary finds her own worst fears confirmed: it’s always darkest before it turns completely black. 1. Language: English.

Avery Dare lives a quiet life in Miami as an online fashion/makeup video blogger. She has good friends and a close, large family, and if her love life is lacking she likes it that way. But when she receives a ticket to one of her ex´s concerts along with an invitation to meet him backstage, she decides to take the risk...and comes face to face with the reality of his rock star lifestyle - the press, the crowds, and the half-naked groupies. At 18 years old, Grey Kingston left everything he knew and loved behind to seek fame and fortune as a rock star, and he found it as the lead guitarist and singer for the band Tangled Royal. Fans adore him, women throw themselves at him, and he can afford everything he couldn´t afford growing up. Yet at the height of his career, he´s ready to walk away and return home to a simpler life...and the woman he left behind. Except moving on isn´t as easy as Grey would like. When Avery is threatened by a stalker, it becomes evident Grey´s fans don´t want him to retire, nor do they want Avery in his life. And Avery isn´t sure she wants the pressures that are part of Grey´s life...but she doesn´t want to lose him again, either. Can their recently renewed love survive the fallout? 1. Language: English.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, War Horse, Star Trek into Darkness, The Hobbit trilogy, Twelve Years a Slave, August: Osage County, The Fifth Estate, Hedda Gabler, After the Dance, Frankenstein, Hawking, To the Ends of the Earth, The Last Enemy, Parade´s End, and, of course, Sherlock. For most actors, these stellar cinematic, theatrical, and television events would be the highlights of a lifetime´s work. On Benedict Cumberbatch´s résumé they are only a few of many entries. Especially since 2010, his performances have garnered a plethora of best actor awards, both in the theatre (Evening Standard Theatre Award, Critics Circle Theatre Award, and Olivier Award), by playing the dual roles of Victor Frankenstein and the Creature in the National Theatre´s Frankenstein, and on television (Broadcasting Press Guild Award, Critics Choice Television Award, Crime Thriller Award, and TV Choice Award), by starring as the titular Holmes in the BBC´s Sherlock. Add these and other recent accolades to nearly a decade s nominations and awards (such as the Golden Nymph as best actor in Hawking), and it´s easy to see why Benedict Cumberbatch is often hailed as the actor of his generation. Cumberbatch´s body of work further includes indie films, radio plays and series, television documentaries, live dramatic readings, multimedia advertisements, and even the occasional stint as a fashion model. He often shares an intriguing perspective on his profession, as evidenced in sometimes controversial interviews. He has become so much in demand that online box offices crash when tickets for his performances go on sale, and, before a Cheltenham Literature Festival Q&A session, fans overwhelmed Twitter when so many responded immediately to a call for questions. Cumberbatch consistently is a top name on lists ranging from sex appeal to global influence. In 2012 he beat David Beckham i... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Veronica Leckie.
