“There's nothing wrong with having a little faith in something the world doesn't understand yet.”

She believes the world doesn't need her and neither does she need it.

Living on a planet reigned and contaminated by a bunch of people who call themselves "the majority", an overdue bloomer has reached heights of being extremely fed up of everything that's normal, perfect, pretty, and what not that they claim to want in a tired and talentless, and yet miserably hopeful, soul like her.

But things turn upside down when she's pushed into living a more responsible life in the name of a favor. Suddenly reality starts to mold into something unexpected. Something that wasn't what "the majority" had been preaching to her all her life. Something that didn't make her feel so invisible anymore. Something that might finally prove that she, Jordan Blackwood — the worst nightmare of every ambitious parent — may not be a mistake after all.

If only you know what it means to be really screwed up.

About the author

Almandyne is a very short 20-year-old human being who likes human stories better than human biology. And yet, is somehow stuck in med school. All the strict rules and restrictions she was raised with, in a society that shows no mercy for outcasts, has made it hard for her to be okay with who she really is. But losing her mother to suicide six years ago has gradually changed her into a storyteller who's finally willing to be more passionate about her dreams and less afraid of what people would say. I Like Sunflowers is a story she created hoping to help someone out there, somewhere in the strangest corners of the world, find their very own miracle amidst all the excruciating chaos around them and escape that dark place where words don't exist.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

The latest from legendary master storyteller Stephen King, a riveting, extraordinarily eerie, and moving story about a man whose mysterious affliction brings a small town together—a timely, upbeat tale about finding common ground despite deep-rooted differences.

Although Scott Carey doesn’t look any different, he’s been steadily losing weight. There are a couple of other odd things, too. He weighs the same in his clothes and out of them, no matter how heavy they are. Scott doesn’t want to be poked and prodded. He mostly just wants someone else to know, and he trusts Doctor Bob Ellis.

In the small town of Castle Rock, the setting of many of King’s most iconic stories, Scott is engaged in a low grade—but escalating—battle with the lesbians next door whose dog regularly drops his business on Scott’s lawn. One of the women is friendly; the other, cold as ice. Both are trying to launch a new restaurant, but the people of Castle Rock want no part of a gay married couple, and the place is in trouble. When Scott finally understands the prejudices they face–including his own—he tries to help. Unlikely alliances, the annual foot race, and the mystery of Scott’s affliction bring out the best in people who have indulged the worst in themselves and others.

From Stephen King, our “most precious renewable resource, like Shakespeare in the malleability of his work” (The Guardian), Elevation is an antidote to our divisive culture, as gloriously joyful (with a twinge of deep sadness) as “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

DAY ONE: THE NAME OF THE WIND
 
My name is Kvothe.
 
I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep.
 
You may have heard of me.
 
So begins a tale unequaled in fantasy literature—the story of a hero told in his own voice. It is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man’s search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.
