Book Summary: A Best Book of the Year: The Washington Post • Chicago Tribune • NPR • Vogue • Elle • Real Simple • InStyle • Good Housekeeping • Parade • Slate • Vox • Kirkus Reviews • Library Journal • BookPage Longlisted for the 2020 Booker Prize An Instant New York Times Bestseller A Reese's Book Club x Hello Sunshine Book Pick "The most provocative page-turner of the year." --Entertainment Weekly "I urge you to read Such a Fun Age." --NPR A striking and surprising debut novel from an exhilarating new voice, Such a Fun Age is a page-turning and big-hearted story about race and privilege, set around a young black babysitter, her well-intentioned employer, and a surprising connection that threatens to undo them both. Alix Chamberlain is a woman who gets what she wants and has made a living, with her confidence-driven brand, showing other women how to do the same. So she is shocked when her babysitter, Emira Tucker, is confronted while watching the Chamberlains' toddler one night, walking the aisles of their local high-end supermarket. The store's security guard, seeing a young black woman out late with a white child, accuses Emira of kidnapping two-year-old Briar. A small crowd gathers, a bystander films everything, and Emira is furious and humiliated. Alix resolves to make things right. But Emira herself is aimless, broke, and wary of Alix's desire to help. At twenty-five, she is about to lose her health insurance and has no idea what to do with her life. When the video of Emira unearths someone from Alix's past, both women find themselves on a crash course that will upend everything they think they know about themselves, and each other. With empathy and piercing social commentary, Such a Fun Age explores the stickiness of transactional relationships, what it means to make someone "family," and the complicated reality of being a grown up. It is a searing debut for our times.

Book Summary: Hannah, Cate et Lissa sont jeunes, impétueuses, inséparables. Dans le Londres des années 1990 en pleine mutation, elles vivent ensemble et partagent leurs points de vue sur l’art, l’activisme, l’amour et leur avenir, qu’elles envisagent avec gourmandise. Le vent de rébellion qui souffle sur le monde les inspire. Leur vie est électrique et pleine de promesses, leur amitié franche et généreuse. Les années passent, et à trente-cinq ans, entre des carrières plus ou moins épanouissantes et des mariages chancelants, toutes trois sont insatisfaites et chacune convoite ce que les deux autres semblent posséder. Qu’est-il arrivé aux femmes qu’elles étaient supposées devenir? Dans ce roman tout en nuances sur les différentes facettes de l’amitié au fil du temps, Anna Hope tisse avec élégance et délicatesse la vie de ces trois héroïnes contemporaines. Elle sonde les différentes façons de trouver son identité de femme, mais aussi de mère, de fille, d’épouse ou d’éternelle rebelle, et explore cet interstice entre les espérances et la réalité, cet espace si singulier fait de rêves, de désirs et de douleurs où se joue toute vie.

Book Summary: À quoi ressemblerait votre vie si vous connaissiez la date de votre mort ? New York, été 1969. Pour tromper l'ennui, les enfants Gold ne trouvent rien de mieux à faire que d'aller consulter une voyante capable de prédire avec exactitude la date de leur mort. Si Varya, Daniel, Klara et Simon veulent tous savoir de quoi demain sera fait, ils sont loin de se douter de ce qui les attend. Des années plus tard, hantés par la prophétie, ils vont faire des choix de vie radicalement opposés. Simon, le petit dernier censé reprendre l'entreprise de confection familiale, s'enfuit sur la côte ouest, en quête d'amour à San Francisco. Klara, la rêveuse, devient magicienne à Las Vegas, obsédée par l'idée de brouiller les pistes entre la réalité et l'imagination. Épris de justice, Daniel s'engage comme médecin dans l'armée après les attentats du 11 septembre. Quant à la studieuse Varya, elle se jette dans des travaux de recherche liés à la longévité, tentant désespérément de percer le secret de l'immortalité. Lorsque le premier d'entre eux trouve la mort à la date annoncée par la voyante, les trois autres craignent le pire. Doivent-ils prendre au sérieux cette prémonition ? N'est-ce la puissance de l'autosuggestion qui pousse les Gold à faire des choix qui les conduisent irrémédiablement vers leur mort ? Fresque de grande envergure, à l'ambition et à la profondeur remarquables, Les Immortalistes se situe entre le destin et le libre arbitre, le réel et l'illusion, l'ici-bas et l'au-delà. Une ode magnifique à ce qui nous échappe et à la force implacable des liens familiaux. « LE roman de l'année. » - Entertainment Weekly « — Sans elle, je ne serais jamais venu à San Francisco. Je n'aurais pas rencontré Robert. Je n'aurais pas appris à danser. Je serais probablement encore à la maison, à attendre que ma vie commence. Il est en colère contre sa maladie. Il est en rage contre ce mal qui le ronge. Et jusque-là, il détestait aussi la femme de Hester Street. Comment, se demandait-il, avait-elle pu annoncer un destin aussi tragique à un enfant ? Mais maintenant, il la considère différemment, comme une mère ou une déesse, celle qui lui a montré la porte et lui a dit: «Vas-y ! » Klara semble paralysée. Simon se remémore l'expression de son visage après leur emménagement à San Francisco, un mélange sinistre d'irritation et d'indulgence, et il s'était rendu compte pourquoi cela le perturbait. Elle lui rappelait la femme : elle l'observait, guettant le compte à rebours. À cet...

Book Summary: What would you do to bring back someone you love? After the unexpected loss of his girlfriend, a boy suffering from delusions believes he can travel through time to save her in this gripping new novel from New York Times bestselling author Beth Revis. "A story that’s both heartbreaking and hopeful." —Publishers Weekly, starred review “Revis’s account of grief, loss, first love, and anguish, presented through a lens of mental illness, is a must-read.” —VOYA, starred review “A heartrending, beautifully complex look at mental illness, life, and loss. I tore through the pages, and, days later, this story still has a hold on me.” —Alexandra Bracken, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Darkest Minds series and Passenger Seventeen-year-old Bo has always had delusions that he can travel through time. When he was ten, Bo claimed to have witnessed the Titanic hit an iceberg, and at fifteen, he found himself on a Civil War battlefield, horrified by the bodies surrounding him. So when his concerned parents send him to a school for troubled youth, Bo assumes he knows the truth: that he’s actually attending Berkshire Academy, a school for kids who, like Bo, have "superpowers." At Berkshire, Bo falls in love with Sofia, a quiet girl with a tragic past and the superpower of invisibility. Sofia helps Bo open up in a way he never has before. In turn, Bo provides comfort to Sofia, who lost her mother and two sisters at a very young age. But even the strength of their love isn’t enough to help Sofia escape her deep depression. After she commits suicide, Bo is convinced that she's not actually dead. He believes that she's stuck somewhere in time — that he somehow left her in the past, and now it's his job to save her. Not since Ned Vizzini’s It’s Kind of a Funny Story has there been such a heartrending depiction of mental illness. In her first contemporary novel, Beth Revis guides readers through the mind of a young man struggling to process his grief as he fights his way through his delusions. As Bo becomes more and more determined to save Sofia, he has to decide whether to face his demons head-on, or succumb to a psychosis that will let him be with the girl he loves.

Book Summary: To date, there have been few theoretical inquiries into the relationship between the technological innovation and basic objectives of consumer protection laws. This book addresses this need by considering the impact of technological innovation on the foundations of consumer advocacy, contracting behaviour, control over intellectual capital and information privacy. The collection presents a unique and timely perspective on these issues. The authors, internationally renowned experts, from diverse areas such as consumer issues in technology markets, contract, and intellectual property provide a fresh perspective on these topics. Contributions provide novel approaches to the question of what consumer protection might consist of in the context of technological innovation. The book will be a valuable resource to academics and researchers in law and public policy and is easily accessible to graduate and undergraduate students working in these areas.

Book Summary: ‘Tight, clever and riddled with wit. Like discovering Adrian Mole or Bridget Jones for the first time.’ Joanna Nadin, author of The Queen of Bloody Everything ‘A sweet, fizzy sherbet dib-dab of a book - deliciously nostalgic, hugely funny and ultimately heartwarming. The perfect book for our times.’ Veronica Henry 'Full of fabulous characters, sprinkled with joy and drenched in wit.’ Milly Johnson July, 1962 Sixteen year-old Evie Epworth stands on the cusp of womanhood. But what kind of a woman will she become? The fastest milk bottle-delivery girl in East Yorkshire, Evie is tall as a tree and hot as the desert sand. She dreams of an independent life lived under the bright lights of London (or Leeds). The two posters of Adam Faith on her bedroom wall (‘brooding Adam’ and ‘sophisticated Adam’) offer wise counsel about a future beyond rural East Yorkshire. Her role models are Charlotte Bronte, Shirley MacLaine and the Queen. But, before she can decide on a career, she must first deal with the malign presence of her future step-mother, the manipulative and money-grubbing Christine. If Evie can rescue her bereaved father, Arthur, from Christine’s pink and over-perfumed clutches, and save the farmhouse from being sold off then maybe she can move on with her own life and finally work out exactly who it is she is meant to be. Moving, inventive and richly comic, The Miseducation of Evie Epworth is the most joyful debut novel of the year and the best thing to have come out of Yorkshire since Wensleydale cheese. ‘Such a joyful and uplifting read. Just the sort of thing that people will want to be reading right now.’ Radio 2 Book Club 'Funny and original with a cast of eccentric characters, this debut novel is a tour de force. Not to be missed.' Sunday Express 'A rich triumph of comic writing.' Waterstones.com 'One of the funniest, wittiest and most joyful books you will read this year.' Lancaster Guardian

Book Summary: Roland Huntford's brilliant history begins 20,000 years ago in the last ice age on the icy tundra of an unformed earth. Man is a travelling animal, and on these icy slopes skiing began as a means of survival. That it has developed into the leisure and sporting pursuit of choice by so much of the globe bears testament to its elemental appeal. In polar exploration, it has changed the course of history. Elsewhere, in war and peace, it has done so too. The origins of skiing are bound up in with the emergence of modern man and the world we live in today.
