      Description
      In this standalone French-inspired fantasy, two young women work together in secret to stay alive and end a war caused by magic and greed before it kills thousands for the sake of the wealthy few

      Comtesse Emilie Marchand is more at home holding scalpels than knitting needles and is desperate to escape her noble roots and serve her country as a physician. But society dictates a lady cannot perform such gruesome work.
      Annette Boucher, first-born daughter and least-loved child, wants more for her life, desperate to be trained so her magic can reach its full potential. So when a strange noble girl offers Annette the chance of a lifetime, she accepts.
      Emilie and Annette swap lives—Annette attends finishing school to become a lady and trained in the ways of divination, while Emilie enrolls to be a surgeon, using her natural magical talent to save lives.
      But when their nation is the aggressor in a frivolous war, Emilie and Annette must work together to help the rebellion end a war that is based on lies.

      Description

      When it comes to disease, who beats the oddsand why?

      When it comes to spontaneous healing, skepticism abounds. Doctors are taught that “miraculous” recoveries are flukes, and as a result they don’t study those cases or take them into account when treating patients.

      Enter Dr. Jeff Rediger, who has spent over 15 years studying spontaneous healing, pioneering the use of scientific tools to investigate recoveries from incurable illnesses. Dr. Rediger’s research has taken him from America’s top hospitals to healing centers around the world—and along the way he’s uncovered insights into why some people beat the odds.

      InCured, Dr. Rediger digs down to the root causes of illness, showing how to create an environment that sets the stage for healing. He reveals the patterns behind healing and lays out the physical and mental principles associated with recovery: first, we need to physically heal our diet and our immune systems. Next, we need to mentally heal our stress response and our identities.

      Through rigorous research, Dr. Rediger shows that much of our physical reality is created in our minds. Our perception changes our experience, even to the point of changing our physical bodies—and thus the healing of our identity may be our greatest tool to recovery.

      Ultimately, miracles only contradict what we know of nature at this point in time.Curedleads the way in explaining the science behind these miracles, and provides a first-of-its-kind guidebook to both healing and preventing disease.

      Bio

His work has been featured on radio and television, includingTheOprah Winfrey Show andDr. Oz.

      Reviews

      "Cured is a rare glimpse into the mysteries of human health and disease. Why do some people with incurable disease suddenly heal? This phenomenon has been ignored by medicine rather than investigated. Dr. Rediger finally asks what we can learn from these cases of spontaneous remission and how can we activate the power of the human body using the mind to harness our body’s own healing systems." —Mark Hyman, MD, Director of the Cleveland Clinic for Functional Medicine, Author of the #1New York Times BestsellerThe Blood Sugar Solution

      "I believe Dr. Rediger is the perfect person to write this meaningful and timely book, which shows us a new paradigm of healing from physical illness. His unique documentation of the traits and strategies of individuals who have manifested their own medical recoveries, against all odds, will offer not only hope but also genuine insight to anyone facing a medical crisis." —Jill Bolte-Taylor, PhD, Neuroanatomist, Spokesperson for the Harvard Brain Bank, Author of theNew York Times bestsellerMy Stroke of Insight

      "Dr. Rediger's work adds enormously to the growing body of work willing to take on the medical establishment and show that we may have far more control over our health than most physicians, researchers, and the lay public realize." —Ellen Langer, PhD, Professor of Psychology at Harvard University, Author ofCounterclockwise

      "Cured is a book for everyone. This new pathway to healing is potentially life changing, both for those with a terminal diagnosis and those who simply want to live the healthiest life possible. In these illuminating pages, Dr. Rediger gives medicine a much-needed push towards a science of health and hope." —Daniel Friedland, MD, Former Chair of the Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine, Author ofLeading Well from Within

      "Packed with pearls of wisdom gleaned from Dr. Rediger’s intensive immersion in the field of remarkable recoveries and from his thoughtful reflections about his own personal journey,Cured will touch the hearts and souls of everyone who reads this book and will inspire them to take charge of their health – and their mindset. This exciting book is bound to be a page- turner for anyone who wants to die from old age – and not before then." —Martha Stark, MD, Faculty, Harvard Medical School

      "Seasoned with the author’s penetrating insights about healing, clearly articulated science and illuminating case histories,Curedopens genuine vistas of transforming illness into health even in the face of diagnoses conventional medical thinking habitually dismisses as hopeless." —GaborMaté, MD, Author ofWhen the Body Says No: Exploring the Stress-Disease Connection

      "Have you ever wondered why some people 'miraculously' heal from disease, while others don’t? This question can seem so mysterious that we often think there’s simply no way to understand it. But there are answers, andCuredpresents them in a beautifully written and deeply personal way. Dr. Rediger’s brilliance and wisdom are profound and eminently practical. But it’s his humility and humanity that make this book the masterpiece that it is."—John Robbins, Author, and President,Food Revolution Network

      "Cured is packed with cutting-edge science and powerful, eye-opening real life case studies. Dr. Jeff Rediger offers groundbreaking and scientifically-backed evidence of how trauma can have long-lasting effects on our bodies. This is a hopeful tale of how through resilience and meaningful lifestyle adjustments even the most serious of cases can be redeemed. Timely and beautifully written...Everyone should read this book." —Bessel van der Kolk, author of the #1New York Times bestsellingThe Body Keeps the Score

      "Curedis one of the most important books I've ever read. Dr. Rediger presents dozens of case studies of people who defied the odds, many making complete recoveries even after being told to go home and get their affairs in order. In this book, he shows us why they recovered but he also gives us insights into how we, too, can tap into this amazing curative and regenerative power of the human body. This is a deeply inspiring book. I could hardly put it down." —David R. Hamilton, PhD, author ofHow Your Mind Can Heal Your Body

      "Fascinating bioscience on the phenomenon of spontaneous healing...[Cured] doubles as a pragmatic guide to improving general health...[and the author's] expert analysis drives much of this intriguing volume...Arrestingly written and chockablock with practical, empowering medical information, this thought-provoking and convincing chronicle of disease avoidance and 'remarkable recovery' will give even skeptics something to ponder."—Kirkus Reviews

      "Rediger makes a compelling argument... [He] adds to spontaneous healing research by presenting case studies of terminal patients, and includes engaging lessons about pathophysiology and the history of medicine... As a leading voice challenging current healthcare systems and treatment models, Rediger makes a convincing case to study spontaneous remissions. By doing so, we may become closer to learning why some survive, despite their odds." —Library Journal

      "An experienced physician who is also a skilled, driven and compassionate writer is a winning combination. This pioneering book by psychiatrist Jeffrey Rediger analyses unexplained spontaneous recoveries from potentially fatal medical conditions... Rediger concludes that each recovery was 'unique' and only partially explicable, but that all provide evidence of 'a powerful link' between our identities and our immune systems." —Nature

      Babysitting? More like bully-sitting, when Malia, Dot, and Bree get a much older—and scarier—client than they expected. But looks can be deceiving in this LOL-worthy third book in the Best Babysitters Ever series, perfect for fans of Rachel Vail and Sarah Mlynowski.

      Malia, Dot, and Bree are psyched to land their highest paying job yet—until they get to the house and realize they’re babysitting Zelda Hooper, Bree and Malia’s archnemesis since preschool. Babysitting: not just for babies, apparently. And it’s too much money to walk away from . . . so at least there are no diapers?

      But all of the babysitting in the world couldn’t prepare the girls for their unusual new charge, and even though Zelda should be the one who’s embarrassed that three girls her age are getting paid to babysit her, she relishes the chance to tease them on her home turf. Is she really evil or just misunderstood?

      This hilarious third installment in the Best Babysitters Ever series brings back all the characters you love, and love to hate—reminding us that friendship trumps all. Even dirty diapers.

      "[A] deftly layered mystery about family, friendship, and the struggle to speak up." - Laurie Halse Anderson, bestselling author ofSpeakandShout

      From acclaimed author Kate Messner comes the powerful story of a young girl with the courage to make her voice heard, set against the backdrop of a summertime mystery.

      When Mia moves to Vermont the summer after seventh grade, she's recovering from the broken arm she got falling off a balance beam. And packed away in the moving boxes under her clothes and gymnastics trophies is a secret she'd rather forget.

      Mia's change in scenery brings day camp, new friends, and time with her beloved grandmother. But Gram is convinced someone is trying to destroy her cricket farm. Is it sabotage or is Gram's thinking impaired from the stroke she suffered months ago? Mia and her friends set out to investigate, but can they uncover the truth in time to save Gram's farm? And will that discovery empower Mia to confront the secret she's been hiding--and find the courage she never knew she had?

      In a compelling story rich with friendship, science, and summer fun, a girl finds her voice while navigating the joys and challenges of growing up.

      Description

      In the latest thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling series, homicide detective Eve Dallas investigates a murder with a mysterious motive—and a terrifying weapon.

      Pediatrician Kent Abner received the package on a beautiful April morning. Inside was a cheap trinket, a golden egg that could be opened into two halves. When he pried it apart, highly toxic airborne fumes entered his body—and killed him.

      After Eve Dallas calls the hazmat team—and undergoes testing to reassure both her and her husband that she hasn’t been exposed—it’s time to look into Dr. Abner’s past and relationships. Not every victim Eve encounters is an angel, but it seems that Abner came pretty close—though he did ruffle some feathers over the years by taking stands for the weak and defenseless. While the lab tries to identify the deadly toxin, Eve hunts for the sender. But when someone else dies in the samegrisly manner, it becomes clear that she’s dealing with either a madman—or someone who has a hidden and elusive connection to both victims.
