Und ihr Vater, der geldgierige Direktor des Theaters, der Lysander einen Handel vorschlägt: Gelingt es Lysander, ein gutes Stück für das Theater zu schreiben, so soll Mariella die seine werden.

Was sich entwickelt ist eine Geschichte über Liebe, Habgier und wahre Treue. Was Lysander dabei vor allem lernt: den Blick auf das wirklich Wichtige zu richten.

From USA Today Bestselling Author of the Gypsy Brothers series, Lili St. Germain This is not a story about love. There is no happy ending. There is only darkness, and the struggle to avoid being consumed by it. This is a story about survival. Mia I wasn't the first girl they stole away in the night, and I certainly wouldn't be the last. I didn't believe in vampires, but that didn't stop them from taking my blood and my hope. I'll die before I let them turn me. I'll never be one of them. I just have to figure out how to escape before it's too late... Ryan I took her, and I shouldn't have. I turned her, and I shouldn't have. I saved her, and she hates me for it. I think I'm falling for her, and she's going to be the death of me because of it. *Book one in The Vampireland Series - Book Two coming Halloween 2015* Praise for Walking Dead Girl "The best vampire novel I have ever read." Nadine Colling - Hook Me Up Book Blog "Lush, dark and satisfying." Jordan Rosenfeld, Author "...This may be one of my top 5 books that I've ever read...

In Girl Walking Backwards, Skye wants what all teenagers want--to survive high school. She lives in Southern California, though, which is making that difficult. Her mother has fallen victim to the pseudo-New Age culture and insists on dragging her to consciousness-raising workshops and hypnotists. As if this weren't difficult enough, Skye falls in love with Jessica, a troubled gothic punk girl who cuts herself regularly with sharp objects. When she finds her boyfriend having sex with Jessica in a bathroom stall at a rave, her romantic illusions collapse and she has to face the fact that she's been running away from her mother's insanity. Right when things look their worst though, Skye is helped by Mol, a pagan who becomes her true friend, and Lorri, a graceful volleyball player with whom she finds real love. From them she learns how to feel authentic emotions in a culture of poseurs and New Age charlatans. In this anti-coming-of-age novel by Bett Williams, where growing up is irrelevant, this is the best gift of all.

Out of the bleakness of their Middlesbrough housing estate, fuelled by cheap plonk, porn and dysfunctional families, Adam and Eve narrate this dazzling, tragicomic love story of adolescence in all its fucked-up glory. '[An] unbelievably good, affecting, unpretentious debut novel . . . more than anything, Apples feels truthful: whether the drugs, the sex, the boozing or the brutal insecurities of adolescence, it all smacks beautifully of the real thing.' Jon Elek, Time Out 'Wonderful . . . Apples is unlike any other novel I've read. Who knows? We may have discovered our J.D. Salinger early.' John Sutherland, Financial Times 'Crass, graphic, funny and unnerving . . . Well constructed and streaming with gorgeous language, it's a frighteningly recognisable glimpse into a particular experience of adolescence.'

Garnering a vast amount of attention from young people and parents, and from book buyers across the country, Smashed became a media sensation and a New York Times bestseller. Eye-opening and utterly gripping, Koren Zailckas’s story is that of thousands of girls like her who are not alcoholics—yet—but who routinely use booze as a shortcut to courage and a stand-in for good judgment. With one stiff sip of Southern Comfort at the age of fourteen, Zailckas is initiated into the world of drinking. From then on, she will drink faithfully, fanatically. In high school, her experimentation will lead to a stomach pumping. In college, her excess will give way to a pattern of self-poisoning that will grow more destructive each year. At age twenty-two, Zailckas will wake up in an unfamiliar apartment in New York City, elbow her friend who is passed out next to her, and ask, "Where are we?" Smashed is a sober look at how she got there and, after years of blackouts and smashups, what it took for her to realize she had to stop drinking. Smashed is an astonishing literary debut destined to become a classic.
