      #1 New York Times bestseller

      With a new afterword

      Now a Major Motion Picture
      Starring Steve Carell * Timothée Chalamet * Maura Tierney * and Amy Ryan

      “A brilliant, harrowing, heartbreaking, fascinating story, full of beautiful moments and hard-won wisdom. This book will save a lot of lives and heal a lot of hearts.” — Anne Lamott

      “‘When one of us tells the truth, he makes it easier for all of us to open our hearts to our own pain and that of others.’ That’s ultimately whatBeautiful Boy is about: truth and healing.” — Mary Pipher, author ofReviving Ophelia

      What had happened to my beautiful boy? To our family? What did I do wrong? Those are the wrenching questions that haunted David Sheff’s journey through his son Nic’s addiction to drugs and tentative steps toward recovery. Before Nic became addicted to crystal meth, he was a charming boy, joyous and funny, a varsity athlete and honor student adored by his two younger siblings. After meth, he was a trembling wraith who lied, stole, and lived on the streets. David Sheff traces the first warning signs: the denial, the three a.m. phone calls—is it Nic? the police? the hospital? His preoccupation with Nic became an addiction in itself. But as a journalist, he instinctively researched every treatment that might save his son. And he refused to give up on Nic.

      “Filled with compelling anecdotes and important insights . . . An eye-opening memoir.” —Washington Post
      DAVID SHEFF is the author of several books, including the #1 New York Times best-selling memoir Beautiful Boy . His writing has appeared in the New York Times, the New York Times Magazine, Rolling Stone, Playboy, Wired, and many other publications. His ongoing research and reporting on the science of addiction earned him a place on Time magazine's list of the World's Most Influential People. Sheff and his family live in the San Francisco Bay Area. Visit David at, and on Twitter @david_sheff.

      From the New York Times bestseller of The Paris Architect

      Someone has to take the blame.

      When the Britannia Theatre's balcony collapses, killing over a dozen people, the fingers point at the architect. He should have known better, should have made it safer, should have done something.

      Douglas Layton knows the flaw wasn't in his design, but he can't fighta guilty verdict. When he is finally released from prison, he has nothing: no job, no family, nowhere to go. He needs to assume a new identity and rebuild his life.

      But he soon finds himself digging up the past in a way he never anticipated. If the collapse was not an accident ... who caused it? And why? And what if they find out who he used to be?

      Charles Belfoure is the nationally bestselling author of The Paris Architect. An architect by profession, he graduated from the Pratt Institute and Columbia University, and he taught at Pratt as well as Goucher College in Baltimore, Maryland. His area of specialty is historic preservation, and he has published several architectural histories, one of which won a Graham Foundation national grant for architectural research. He has been a freelance writer for The Baltimore Sun and The New York Times. He lives in Maryland. For more information, visit

      2019 James Beard General Cookbook Award Finalist

      To the hundreds of thousands who follow her on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, Dorie Greenspan’s food is powerfully cookable—her recipes instant classics. InEveryday Dorie, she invites readers into her kitchen to savor the dishes that she makes all the time, from Miso-Glazed Salmon to Lemon Goop.

      What makes a “Dorie recipe”?

      Each one has a small surprise that makes it special. Mustard and walnuts in the cheese puffs. Cherry tomatoes stuffed into red bell peppers and oven-charred. Cannellini beans in cod en papillote. The dishes are practical, made with common ingredients from the supermarket, farmers’ market, or pantry, like Sweet Chili Chicken Thighs, which is both weeknight simple and fine enough for company, and Eton Mess, a beautifully casual dessert of crumbled meringue, fruit, and whipped cream. They are easygoing, providing swaps and substitutions. They invite mixing and matching. Many can be served as dinner, or as a side dish, or as an appetizer, or hot, cold, or room temperature. And every single one is like a best friend in the kitchen, full of Dorie’s infectious love of cooking and her trademark hand-holding directions.
      Inducted into the James Beard Foundation’s Who’s Who of Food and Beverage in America, DORIE GREENSPAN is the author ofDorie's Cookies, a 2017 James Beard Award-winner for Best Baking and Dessert book;Around My French Table,a New York Timesbestseller that wasnamed Cookbook of the Year by the IACP;Baking Chez Moi,also aTimesbestseller; andBaking: From My Home to Yours, a James Beard Award winner.

      "Greenspan (Around My French Table), five-time James Beard Award winner, shares her favorite day-to-day recipes in this standout cookbook. . . Easy, delicious weeknight meals. . . Exceptional desserts. . . Whether readers are just discovering Greenspan or are part of her fan base, they will be thrilled with this."
      Publishers Weekly, STARRED review

      Like cookbooks labeled “simple,” the descriptor “everyday” means something different to every cook. For Greenspan, it involves a lot of really good fresh produce, herbs and citrus, and an element of surprise. Roasted squash hummus gets acidity and fruitiness from pomegranate molasses; turkey meatball soup gets a hit of heat from freshly grated ginger; and pear upside down cake is spiked with Chinese five spice instead of the usual cinnamon and nutmeg. Other standouts include oven charred peppers stuffed with cherry tomatoes, a lettuce soup with scallops, and a show-stopping triple layer parsnip cake with cranberries.
      One thing you’ll find inEveryday Dorie that isn’t always in other cookbooks: explanations of what to look for: the sights, sounds, and smells of a dish in process, and clues for when it’s done. It’s a wonderful way to learn to cook anything, from a fried egg to a 10-layer torte, and a hallmark of Greenspan’s style.

      If you’ve ever wanted to stop by Dorie Greenspan’s house for dinner, this book is a nice consolation prize. This is “elbows-on-the-table” food, Greenspan says in the introduction. Dishes like oven-charred tomato-stuffed peppers, a caramelized onion galette with parm cream, fresh-off-the-cob corn chowder, and braised lamb shanks with tomatoes and olives. “These days I have only one rule,” Greenspan explains. “There must be dessert! Please follow it.” With recipes for boozy jumbled fruit croustade and triple-layer parsnip and cranberry cake, that won’t be hard.
      Food & Wine

      “Dorie Greenspan, a guru in many different fields, is now turning to everyday cooking, bringing with her original ideas and lots of culinary know-how. InEveryday Dorie, a clam chowder can be made with Thai aromatics; bread pudding turns to a savory celebration; and cheesy gougères are lifted with a mustardy kick. Dorie isn’t a prisoner to tradition, and she gives you the liberty to vary, adapt and eat deliciously.”

      Yotam Ottolenghi, author and coauthor,Plenty,Ottolenghi,Jerusalem,Sweet andOttolenghi Simple

      “Dorie’s stuff works. It’s practical. It’s compelling. InEveryday Dorie she effortlessly represents how we cook today—a culinary mashup that promises a bigger helping of fun and adventure in the kitchen.”
      Christopher Kimball, founder,Milk Street

      “If what you'd like more than anything else is to be invited over to Dorie's house, have her pour you a glass of wine and cook you something simple and comforting but irresistible, then this book is for you. Packed with elegant, yet accessible recipes,Everyday Doriegives us a glimpse into the kitchen of one of our most beloved food writers and answers the eternal question of what to cook.”
      Samin Nosrat, author,Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat

      “From soup to nuts and ending with fabulous desserts (of course . . . it’s Dorie!)Everyday Doriewill make you feel like you’ve got a seat at her table, or better yet — in her kitchen. Dorie’s collection of “everyday” recipes will make every day extra-delicious.”
      David Lebovitz, author,The Perfect Scoop,My Paris Kitchen andL’Appart

      “Dorie Greenspan is a pro, entrusted with the recipes of the greatest pastry chefs in France, and she's also a home cook whose own recipes are marvels of flavor and simplicity. I want to eat everything she wants to cook.”
      Francis Lam, host,The Splendid Table

      “Dorie Greenspan's joyfulness has always been infectious. InEveryday Dorie she gives us more than recipes—she offers us a reminder that cooking and baking at home every day is an opportunity to bring people together with ease and happiness.”
      Julia Turshen, author,Now & Again,Feed the Resistance andSmall Victories

      “I adore Dorie’s approach to all of life's simple pleasures, savory and sweet. Her magical transformation of the most basic ingredients is always inspiring. Nibbles! Salads! Big, Bold Mains! Each time I tie on my apron at home, I channel my inner Dorie. Her approachable spirit should be part of everyone's every day.”
      Christina Tosi, author,Momofuku Milk Bar andMilk Bar Life

      More meandering than her previous titles, Greenspan’s latest collects the casual foods she makes for family and friends. American and French dishes abound (Greenspan splits her time among New York, Connecticut, and Paris), complemented by international additions not found in Around my French Table. Stunners include candied cocktail almonds, spring avocado and berry salad, Luang Prabang chicken-chili sandwich, and drop-biscuit peach cobbler. The recipes are generally simple and foolproof; the kind most cooks feel confident making for guests without any advance practice. VERDICT: Greenspan’s huge popularity and cult following will assure high demand. Though this title is potentially of less interest to Greenspan’s baker fans, it will excite devotees of Ina Garten, Deb Perelman, and David Lebovitz.

Aelin Galathynius's journey from slave to king's assassin to the queen of a once-great kingdom reaches its heart-rending finale as war erupts across her world. . .

      “Archer, no stranger to sprawling epics, covers three decades in the life of Alex/Sasha, working his way to a stunning conclusion that packs a wallop. Typical for an Archer novel, the writing and characterizations are superb, and the book features several plot twists that send the story lines off in surprising new directions. There are a couple of moments, late in the novel, that should make readers’ jaws drop – moments so unexpected and surreal that they require a second reading,just to make sure we really just read what we think we did.” –Booklist(starred review)

      “If three characters were good inBig Little Lies, nine are even better inNine Perfect Strangers.” —Lisa Scottoline,The New York Times Book Review

      From the #1New York Times bestselling author ofBig Little Lies

      Could ten days at a health resort really change you forever? In Liane Moriarty’s latest page-turner, nine perfect strangers are about to find out...

      Nine people gather at a remote health resort. Some are here to lose weight, some are here to get a reboot on life, some are here for reasons they can’t even admit to themselves. Amidst all of the luxury and pampering, the mindfulness and meditation, they know these ten days might involve some real work. But none of them could imagine just how challenging the next ten days are going to be.

      Frances Welty, the formerly best-selling romantic novelist, arrives at Tranquillum House nursing a bad back, a broken heart, and an exquisitely painful paper cut. She’s immediately intrigued by her fellow guests. Most of them don’t look to be in need of a health resort at all. But the person that intrigues her most is the strange and charismatic owner/director of Tranquillum House. Could this person really have the answers Frances didn’t even know she was seeking? Should Frances put aside her doubts and immerse herself in everything Tranquillum House has to offer – or should she run while she still can?

      It’s not long before every guest at Tranquillum House is asking exactly the same question.

      Combining all of the hallmarks that have made her writing a go-to for anyone looking for wickedly smart, page-turning fiction that will make you laugh and gasp, Liane Moriarty’sNine Perfect Strangers once again shows why she is a master of her craft.

      Liane Moriarty is the author of the #1New York Times bestsellersBig Little Lies,The Husband's Secret, andTruly Madly Guilty, theNew York Times bestsellersWhat Alice ForgotandThe Last Anniversary, andThe Hypnotist's Love Story andThree Wishes.

      The Renegades Trilogy continues, in this fiercely awaited second installment after theNew York Times-bestsellingRenegadesby Marissa Meyer, author of the Lunar Chronicles.

      Now aNew York Times Bestseller!

      Time is running out.
      Together, they can save the world.
      But they each other’s worst nightmare.

      Nova’s double life is about to get a lot more complicated:

      As Insomnia, she is a full-fledged member of the Renegades, a syndicate of powerful and beloved superheroes. She works with Adrian’s patrol unit to protect the weak and maintain order in Gatlon City.

      As Nightmare, she is an Anarchist - a group of of villains who are determined to destroy the Renegades. Nova wants vengeance against the so-called heroes who once failed her when she needed them most.

      But as Nova, her feelings for Adrian are deepening, despite the fact that he is the son of her sworn enemies and, unbeknownst to Nova, he has some dangerous secrets of his own.

      In this second installment of the Renegades trilogy, Nova, Adrian, and the rest of their crew – Ruby, Oscar, and Danna -- are faced with escalating crime in Gatlon City, while covert weapons and conflicting missions have Nova and Adrian questioning not only their beliefs about justice, but also the feelings they have for each other.

      The line between good and evil has been blurred, but what's clear to them both is that too much power could mean the end of their city – and the world – as they know it.

      Marissa Meyeris the author of the #1New York Times-bestselling Lunar Chronicles series:Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, Winter, Fairest, andStars Above,as well as the #1New York Times bestsellerHeartless.Renegades, the first book in the Renegades Trilogy, was also aNew York Times bestseller.

      ANew York Times Bestseller!

      "Meyer is fantastic with superpowers, and the best moments in the book involve ingenious or breathtaking displays of ability, as well as entertaining hints of a centuries-long prodigy history. ... the page-turner conclusion will leave readers eager for the final installment."
      --Publishers Weekly

      "Adrian and Nova, two teen superheroes, have a lot in common: a problematic hidden identity, a secret plan to avenge a family member’s death, and a growing attraction to each other that is impossible to indulge simply because of who they are. ...This enticing mix of superhero adventures and budding love story also tackles hefty ethical issues, and Meyer masterfully manipulates plot and characters to send readers racing for the last pageand regret reaching it, especially when they're met by its suspenseful cliff-hanger.--Booklist

      Praise for RENEGADES, Book One of the Renegades Trilogy


      A Winter 2017-2018 Kids' Indie Next List Selection

      "In a vividly dark and fully imagined universe where special abilities are feared unless they can be strictly controlled and labeled, Meyer celebrates and subverts popular superhero tropes while mining the gray area between malevolence and virtue.
      Third-person narration builds suspense as it shifts between Nova and Adrian, a Renegade with his own secrets; the worldbuilding details and many combat sequences will captivate devotees of superhero comics. Beyond the capes and masks is a strikingly grounded story of star-crossed would-be lovers, deception, and the recognition that most of humanity exists between the extremes of good and evil."--Publishers Weekly,starred review

      "Tackles a familiar genre in a brand new way."

      "A fully realized new world with compelling characters and just enough edge-of-your-seat action to rival the biggest on-screen adaptation?."--Bustle

      "Exciting...perfect for your Fall #TBR list."

      "Even reluctant fans of hero fantasies will fall for thesmart plot and wonderful world-building. Prepare to fangirl."--Justine Magazine

      "Meyer delivers a balance between intricate world-building and fast-paced action sequences. Nova’s childhood tragedy will draw sympathy from readers as they watch her integrate into the group of Renegades in order to seek vengeance. Back-stabbing, plot twists, and hidden agendas will have readers turning pages in an attempt to discover the truth."--School Library Journal

      "Meyer smartly refrains from focusing totally on Adrian and Nova’s potential romance and instead fleshes the characters out as separate individuals with flaws and strengths, regrets and desires. ...The world is exceptionally well crafted, particularly the complex backstory of the rise of prodigies among humans, and the secondary cast of villains and heroes could give Marvel and DC a run for their money. There’s a lot going on here besides cool names and superpowers, and the book earns both its hefty page count and its expected sequel."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, Recommended
