Illustrated by Svetlana Chmakova

James Patterson's bestselling fantasy novels brought to life by bestselling artist Svetlana Chmakova, creator of Nightschool!

Imagine waking up to find that the world around you - life as you know it - has changed in an instant. Whit Allgood and his sister, Wisty, are just your average teenagers - until they are rudely awakened one morning by helicopters on their lawn and a unit of armed policemen hauling them out of bed. Accused of holding incredible powers they'd never dreamed possible, Whit and Wisty are shocked to find that their alleged dangerous magical powers are very real. And now, just how different they are - special, even - is just beginning to come to light as they and other young people rise up against the tyranny of the New Order, which has swept the country and vowed to wipe 'their kind' from existence.

Now Whit and Wisty must fight for both their freedom and their lives as they unlock the powers burning inside of them!

James Patterson presents a genre-bending, action-packed debut--and introduces YA's new favorite, kick-ass heroine: Serendipity Jones, the fastest sharpshooter in tomorrow's West. Seventeen-year-old Serendipity "Pity" Jones inherited two things from her mother: a pair of six shooters and perfect aim. When her father attempts to marry her off to a stranger, she runs away from their humble farming commune and ends up in the most dangerous, decadent city on the continent: Cessation (a lawless Las Vegas). Pity becomes the star of the Theater Vespertine as a trick sharpshooter like Annie Oakley, and there she finds fame, friendship and--what she most wanted--belonging. But there's a darker side to the Theater...The Finale. Every so often the fighting factions of Cessation have to be kept in line with a little demonstration, a nightmarish public execution. And Pity has a starring role...Westworld meets Marie Lu's Legend in this extraordinary YA debut, now available in paperback!

Ink in Water

Lacy J. Davis, Jim Kettner
Authors:
Lacy J. Davis, Jim Kettner

At once punk rock and poignant, Ink in Water is the visceral and groundbreaking graphic memoir of a young woman's devastating struggle with negative body image and eating disorders, and how she rose above her own destructive behaviors and feelings of inadequacy to live a life of strength and empowerment.As a young artist living in Portland, Lacy Davis' eating disorder began with the germ of an idea: a seed of a thought that told her she just wasn't good enough. And like ink in water, that idea spread until it reached every corner of her being. This is the true story of Lacy's journey into the self-destructive world of multiple eating disorders. It starts with a young and positive Lacy, trying to grapple with our culture's body-image obsession and stay true to her riot grrrl roots. And while she initially succeeds in overcoming a nagging rumination about her body, a break up with a recovering addict starts her on a collision course with anorexia, health food obsession, and compulsive exercise addiction. At the request of her last real friend, she starts going to a twelve-step Overeaters Anonymous course, only to find that it conflicts with her punk feminist ideology. Blending bold humor, a healthy dose of self-deprecation, vulnerability, literary storytelling, and dynamic and provocative artwork by illustrator Jim Kettner, Ink in Water is an unflinching, brutally honest look into the author's mind: how she learned to take control of her damaging thoughts, redirect her perfectionism from self-destructive behaviors into writing and art, and how she committed herself to a life of health, strength, and nourishment.
