Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick

Review

"What follows are captures, tortures, machine guns, a helicopter rescue, and a kiss that is, like this addictive first novel for teens, a 'long, intoxicating dive through a sea of Red Bull.'"—Booklist, starred review

"Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick is a high-octane, high-caliber joyride centered on one very loud night in New York City, a sort of Nick & Norah’s Infinite Hit List. As Perry deals with flying bullets, exploding glass, and college admissions, your assignment is much simpler (and safer): Read this book!" —Michael Northrop, author of Trapped "Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick is the hilarious YA buzzbomb I've been waiting for all year. Has style and wit to burn. I read the whole thing in one sitting. Buildings explode, scores are settled, and the dialog is explosively funny. Pretty much every page does it to the hilt. Boom." —Sean Beaudoin, author of You Killed Wesley Payne "Fast paced, smart, exciting . . . it's like your favorite summer action thriller and John Hughes movie rolled into one." —Josh Schwartz, executive producer of Gossip Girl and The O.C. "Plain and simple, it’s a blast. A couple of them, actually."—Publishers Weekly, starred review "Perfect for action adventure junkies who will enjoy the car chases, thugs, graphic killing scenes, explosions, and a random bear fight, Schreiber’s debut novel also contains enough humor, sexual tension, distinctive language, and character development to make this more than just a quick thrill read."—Horn Book

Star Wars: Death Troopers

When the Imperial prison barge Purge--temporary home to five hundred of the galaxy' s most ruthless killers, rebels, scoundrels, and thieves--breaks down in a distant, uninhabited part of space, its only hope appears to lie with a Star Destroyer found drifting, derelict, and seemingly abandoned. But when a boarding party from the Purge is sent to scavenge for parts, only half of them come back--bringing with them a horrific disease so lethal that within hours nearly all aboard the Purge die in ways too hideous to imagine.

And death is only the beginning.

The Purge's half-dozen survivors-- two teenage brothers, a sadistic captain of the guards, a couple of rogue smugglers, and the chief medical officer, the lone woman on board--will do whatever it takes to stay alive. But nothing can prepare them for what lies waiting aboard the Star Destroyer amid its vast creaking emptiness that isn't really empty at all. For the dead are rising: soulless, unstoppable, and...

Star Wars: Red Harvest

The era of the Old Republic is a dark and dangerous time, as Jedi Knights valiantly battle the Sith Lords and their ruthless armies. But the Sith have disturbing plans--and none more so than the fulfillment of Darth Scabrous's fanatical dream, which is about to become nightmarish reality.

Unlike those other Jedi sidelined to the Agricultural Corps--young Jedi whose abilities have not proved up to snuff--Hestizo Trace possesses one extraordinary Force talent: a gift with plants. Suddenly her quiet existence among greenhouse and garden specimens is violently destroyed by the arrival of an emissary from Darth Scabrous. For the rare black orchid that she has nurtured and bonded with is the final ingredient in an ancient Sith formula that promises to grant Darth Scabrous his greatest desire.

But at the heart of the formula is a never-before-seen virus that's worse than fatal--it doesn't just kill, it transforms. Now the rotting, ravenous dead are rising, driven by a...

No Doors, No Windows

When madness is your inheritance, how do you escape it? Scott Mast thought he got away-first from a family haunted by a dark fate, then from a dull career writing greeting cards in Seattle. But now he has come back to his New Hampshire hometown only to find that his family is in ruins, his nephew needs a home, and a shattering truth is clawing its way into the light. Fifteen years ago, Scott's mother died in a fire. And now the shadowy circumstances-the bodies buried beneath the ashes, the lives ripped apart that fateful day-are starting to be revealed. The answers unspool in the pages of a peculiar old manuscript-an unfinished ghost story written in his father's own hand that beckons Scott out to a strange house in the woods with a lightless corridor that cannot be seen from the outside. Here Scott Mast will uncover all that has been hidden-and perhaps finish his father's unspeakable work.
