È l'aprile 1978: sono passati tre anni da quando un misterioso virus ha decimato uno dopo l'altro tutti gli adulti di Berlino. In una città spettrale e decadente, gli unici superstiti sono i ragazzi e le ragazze divisi in gruppi rivali, che ogni giorno lottano per sopravvivere con un'unica certezza: dopo i sedici anni, quando meno se lo aspettano, il virus ucciderà anche loro. Tutto cambia quando qualcuno rapisce il piccolo Theo e lo porta via dall'isola dove viveva con Christa e le ragazze dell'Havel. Per salvare il bambino, Christa ha bisogno dell'aiuto di Jakob e dei suoi compagni di Gropiusstadt: insieme dovranno attraversare una Berlino fantasma fino all'aeroporto di Tegel, covo del più violento gruppo della città. Là, i fuochi che salgono nella notte confondono le luci con le ombre, il bene con il male, la vita con la morte. E quando sorgerà l'alba del nuovo giorno, Jakob e Christa non saranno più gli stessi. «Tutto l'amore che vorremmo lasciare sulla terra, dietro di noi, prima di morire, è difficile chiuderlo dentro delle parole.»

I read somewhere that the decision to emigrate comes from a need to breathe. The hope of a better life is stronger than any other feeling. My mother decided it was better to know I was in danger far from her; but on the way to a different future, than to know I was in danger near her; but stuck in the same old fear. At the age of ten, Enaiatollah Akbari was left alone to fend for himself. This is the heartbreaking, unforgettable story of his journey from Afghanistan to Italy in an attempt to find a safe place to live.

First hangover. First sex. First love triangle (the first sex seems to have happened not with his adoring girlfriend, but with his best friend's sister. Though he's not totallysure - see, first hangover). His anxiety builds when he discovers a mysterious purple rash making its way up his body. Is this what will kill him? Then a strange man shows up at his funeral, claiming to have known Denton's long-deceased mother, and warning him to beware of suspicious characters . . . Suddenly Denton's life is filled with mysterious questions and precious little time to find the answers. Debut author Lance Rubin takes us on a fast, gripping, and outrageously funny ride through the last hours of a teenager's life as he searches for love, meaning and (just maybe) a way to live on . . .

Aria Rose, youngest scion of one of Mystic City's two ruling rival families, finds herself betrothed to Thomas Foster, the son of her parents' sworn enemies. The union of the two will end the generations-long political feud — and unite all those living in the Aeries, the privileged upper reaches of the city, against the banished mystics who dwell below in the Depths. But Aria doesn't remember falling in love with Thomas; in fact, she wakes one day with huge gaps in her memory. And she can't conceive why her parents would have agreed to unite with the Fosters in the first place. Only when Aria meets Hunter, a gorgeous rebel mystic from the Depths, does she start to have glimmers of recollection — and to understand that he holds the key to unlocking her past. The choices she makes can save or doom the city — including herself.
