Theodore Finch is fascinated by death, and he constantly thinks of ways he might kill himself. But each time, something good, no matter how small, stops him.
 
Violet Markey lives for the future, counting the days until graduation, when she can escape her Indiana town and her aching grief in the wake of her sister’s recent death.
 
When Finch and Violet meet on the ledge of the bell tower at school, it’s unclear who saves whom. And when they pair up on a project to discover the “natural wonders” of their state, both Finch and Violet make more important discoveries: It’s only with Violet that Finch can be himself—a weird, funny, live-out-loud guy who’s not such a freak after all. And it’s only with Finch that Violet can forget to count away the days and start living them. But as Violet’s world grows, Finch’s begins to shrink.
 
This is an intense, gripping novel perfect for fans of Gayle Forman, Jay Asher, Rainbow Rowell, John Green, and Jenny Downham from a talented new voice in YA, Jennifer Niven.

“At the heart—a big one—of “All the Bright Places” lies a charming love story about this unlikely and endearing pair of broken teenagers.” 
 — New York Times Book Review 

“…this heartbreaking love story about two funny, fragile, and wildly damaged high school kids named Violet and Finch is worth reading. Niven is a skillful storyteller who never patronizes her characters—or her audience.”
— Entertainment Weekly 
A New York Times Bestseller

From the author of the New York Times bestseller All the Bright Places comes a heart-wrenching story about what it means to see someone—and love someone—for who they truly are.

Everyone thinks they know Libby Strout, the girl once dubbed “America’s Fattest Teen.” But no one’s taken the time to look past her weight to get to know who she really is. Following her mom’s death, she’s been picking up the pieces in the privacy of her home, dealing with her heartbroken father and her own grief. Now, Libby’s ready: for high school, for new friends, for love, and for EVERY POSSIBILITY LIFE HAS TO OFFER. In that moment, I know the part I want to play here at MVB High. I want to be the girl who can do anything. 

Everyone thinks they know Jack Masselin, too. Yes, he’s got swagger, but he’s also mastered the impossible art of giving people what they want, of fitting in. What no one knows is that Jack has a newly acquired secret: he can’t recognize faces. Even his own brothers are strangers to him. He’s the guy who can re-engineer and rebuild anything in new and bad-ass ways, but he can’t understand what’s going on with the inner workings of his brain. So he tells himself to play it cool: Be charming. Be hilarious. Don’t get too close to anyone. 

Until he meets Libby. When the two get tangled up in a cruel high school game—which lands them in group counseling and community service—Libby and Jack are both pissed, and then surprised. Because the more time they spend together, the less alone they feel. . . . Because sometimes when you meet someone, it changes the world, theirs and yours.

Jennifer Niven delivers another poignant, exhilarating love story about finding that person who sees you for who you are—and seeing them right back.

"Niven is adept at creating characters. . . . [Libby's] courage and body-positivity make for a joyful reading experience." --The New York Times

“Holding Up the Universe . . . taps into the universal need to be understood. To be wanted. And that’s what makes it such a remarkable read.” —TeenVogue.com, “Why New Book Holding Up the Universe Is the Next The Fault in Our Stars”

"Want a love story that will give you all the feels? . . . You'll seriously melt!" —Seventeen Magazine
From the author of The Ice Master comes the remarkable true story of a young Inuit woman who survived six months alone on a desolate, uninhabited Arctic island

In September 1921, four young men and Ada Blackjack, a diminutive 25-year-old Eskimo woman, ventured deep into the Arctic in a secret attempt to colonize desolate Wrangel Island for Great Britain. Two years later, Ada Blackjack emerged as the sole survivor of this ambitious polar expedition. This young, unskilled woman--who had headed to the Arctic in search of money and a husband--conquered the seemingly unconquerable north and survived all alone after her male companions had perished.

Following her triumphant return to civilization, the international press proclaimed her the female Robinson Crusoe. But whatever stories the press turned out came from the imaginations of reporters: Ada Blackjack refused to speak to anyone about her horrific two years in the Arctic. Only on one occasion--after charges were published falsely accusing her of causing the death of one her companions--did she speak up for herself.

Jennifer Niven has created an absorbing, compelling history of this remarkable woman, taking full advantage of the wealth of first-hand resources about Ada that exist, including her never-before-seen diaries, the unpublished diaries from other primary characters, and interviews with Ada's surviving son. Ada Blackjack is more than a rugged tale of a woman battling the elements to survive in the frozen north--it is the story of a hero.
For fans of Alan Furst and Sarah Blake, a spellbinding story of a secret mission and dangerous passion in World War II Paris, from the author of the New York Times bestsellers Holding Up the Universe and All the Bright Places (soon to be a major motion picture starring Elle Fanning). 

“An unforgettable tale of love, sacrifice, courage and compassion that will resonate with readers long after they finish the book.”—Chicago Tribune

After delivering a B-17 Flying Fortress to Britain, an American volunteers to copilot a plane carrying special agents to their drop spot over Normandy. Her personal mission: to find her brother, who is missing in action. After her plane is shot down, though, she’s on the run for her life.

In Paris, the beautiful aviatrix Velva Jean Hart becomes Clementine Roux, a daring woman on an epic adventure with her team to capture an operative known only as “Swan.” Once settled on Rue de la Néva, Clementine works as a spy with the Resistance and finds herself falling in love with her fellow agent, Émile, a handsome and mysterious Frenchman with secrets of his own. When Clementine ends up in the most brutal prison in Paris, trying to help Émile and the team rescue Swan, she discovers the depths of human cruelty, the triumph of her own spirit, and the bravery of her team, who will stop at nothing to carry out their mission.

Readers of 22 Britannia Road, The Postmistress, and Suite Francaise will cherish Becoming Clementine—a romantic World War II adventure told from the perspective of a courageous and beautiful heroine. Niven is the author of the popular Velva Jean novels, including Velva Jean Learns to Drive and Velva Jean Learns to Fly.

O amor verdadeiro é como o universo: não tem fim.

Da autora de Fala-me de um dia perfeito chega-nos uma história tocante de superação e esperança.

«Niven criou duas personagens inesquecíveis e um romance que nos deixa de coração apertado.»
Publishers Weekly

Por vezes, conhecemos alguém que nos transforma e que muda tudo.

Libby Strout, outrora a rapariga mais gorda da América, conseguiu finalmente juntar os pedaços do coração destroçado pela morte da mãe e está pronta para voltar a viver. Ultrapassou a dor, o luto, a humilhação. Superou-se e transformou-se e o que mais deseja é ser a rapariga que consegue ser tudo o que quer. No entanto, o resto do liceu não parece partilhar deste entusiasmo de Libby. Não parecem sequer perceber quanto mudou...

Jack Masselin é o típico rapaz popular do liceu: bonito, charmoso, sempre com o comentário certo na hora certa. No entanto, o gosto que tem em perceber a mecânica dos objetos, em reconstruir e transformar todas as coisas que encontra, não lhe serve de muito na sua incapacidade para reconhecer caras. Jack tem prosopagnosia, e todos à sua volta, familiares e amigos incluídos, lhe parecem desconhecidos e são, para ele, um autêntico quebra-cabeças.

Quando o destino junta Libby e Jack naquilo que aparenta ser um castigo injusto, a solidão que cada um sente dá lugar a sentimentos muito diferentes...

Uma história de superação e de um amor verdadeiro e invulgar que nos devolve a esperança no mundo, em nós e no outro.

„Mă învelesc în pilotă cât de strâns pot – astfel încât nu mai pot zări nici camera – și mă întind pe spate în pat, ca o mumie. Este o modalitate de a conserva căldura și lumina, ca să nu mai poată ieși iar. Întind o mână prin deschizătură și apuc altă carte, apoi alta. Și dacă viața ar fi așa? Făcută numai din părți fericite, niciuna îngrozitoare, nici măcar neplăcută. Și dacă ne-ar sta în putere să decupăm răul, pur și simplu, și să păstrăm doar binele? Asta este ceea ce vreau să fac pentru Violet – să-i ofer numai binele, să o țin departe de rău, așa încât acel bine să rămână pentru totdeauna împrejurul nostru.“

Toata lumea crede ca o cunoaste pe Libby Strout, fata care a fost poreclita candva „Cea Mai Grasa Adolescenta" din America. Dar nimeni nu face efortul de a incerca sa vada dincolo de fizicul ei.


Toata lumea crede ca il cunoaste pe Jack Masselin. E fermecator si amuzant. Dar nimeni nu stie ca ascunde un secret. Deviza lui este: fii cool, dar nu te apropia prea tare de cineva.


Pana cand Jack o intalneste pe Libby si amandoi se trezesc antrenati intr-un joc dur de liceeni, ce presupune munca in folosul comunitatii si consiliere – la inceput sunt furiosi, apoi surprinsi. Fiindca isi dau seama de ceva: cu cat petrec mai mult timp impreuna, cu atat se simt mai putin singuri.


Pentru ca atunci cand cunosti pe cineva, si lumea ta, si lumea celuilalt se schimba.
