As the mega-talented creator of Grey's Anatomy and Scandal and executive producer of How to Get Away with Murder and the single mom of three children, Shonda Rhimes had lots of good reasons to say NO when an unexpected invitation arrived. Hollywood party? No. Speaking engagement? No. Media appearances? No. [The side benefit of saying No for an introvert like her: nothing new to fear.] Then Shonda's sister laid down a challenge: just for one year, try to say YES to the invitations that come your way. Shonda reluctantly agreed?and the result was nothing short of transformative. In YEAR OF YES, Shonda Rhimes chronicles the powerful impact saying yes had on every aspect of her life?and how we can all change our lives with one little word. Yes.

When Amelia Earhart mysteriously disappeared in 1937 during her attempted flight around the world, she was already known as America's most famous female aviator. Her sense of daring and determination, rare for women of her time, brought her insurmountable fame from the day she became the first woman to cross the Atlantic in an airplane. In this definitive biography, Mary S. Lovell delivers a brilliantly researched account on Earhart's life using the original documents, letters, the logbooks of Earhart and her contemporaries, and personal interviews with members of Amelia's family, friends and rival aviators. The Sound of Wings vividly captures the drama and mystery behind the most influential woman in "The Golden Age of Flight"—from her tomboy days at the turn of the century and her early fascinations with flying, to the unique relationship she shared with G.P. Putnam, the flamboyant publisher and public relations agent who became both her husband and her business manager. It is a revealing biography of an uncommonly brave woman, and the man who both aided and took advantage of her dreams.

I knew the day wasn't going well when the ferret started to talk. Dad insists that I'm a witch, but I have no idea how to make a cauldron boil, much less get an eye from a newt. And apparently this potion we have to make for the Supreme Bad Dude is the one that exploded and killed my mother a year ago. To top it off, the other witches say I'm a Nix, and talking to Nixes is forbidden. Upshot: I'm on my own. But there is this one enchanter boy. Tall, handsome, serious. He says I'm his match, and I think that means he's willing to break a few rules. That's my kind of guy. So if the man who killed my mom wants me to do a spell for him, sure, I'll give it a go. And maybe I'll throw in something with a little kick on the side. NEW ADULT PARANORMAL ROMANTIC COMEDY
