During a sweltering East Texas summer, 13-year-old Stanley Mitchel Jr. begins a journey of awakening. His family runs the town's drive-in movie theater, where Stanley spends his time helping out, reading ten-cent comics, playing with his dog Nub and generally living a boy's life, circa 1958. When Stanley discovers a cache of old love-letters and starts to unravel a local mystery, however, he finds himself confronting secrets of ghosts, women, sex, race and his own courage. As he tells it, "I felt as if something living inside of me had been stolen, taken away and mistreated, then returned without all of its legs." Ultimately, it's a story about taking a clear-eyed look behind the veil and acknowledging the truth of things, without succumbing to them.

Uno storico evento letterario: la pubblicazione del primo romanzo di Harper Lee, l’amata autrice del romanzo premio Pulitzer, "Il buio oltre la siepe". "Va’, metti una sentinella" è ambientato a metà degli anni cinquanta e presenta molti personaggi de "Il buio oltre la siepe" vent’anni dopo. Scout (Jean Louise Finch) torna a Maycomb da New York per andare a trovare Atticus. Cercando di comprendere l’atteggiamento del padre nei confronti della società e i suoi stessi sentimenti verso il posto dove è nata e dove ha passato l’infanzia, Scout è costretta ad affrontare difficili questioni personali e politiche. Esaminando come i personaggi de "Il buio oltre la siepe" cambiano di fronte agli eventi turbolenti che caratterizzano l’America in trasformazione della metà degli anni cinquanta, "Va’, metti una sentinella" getta una nuova affascinante luce sul classico di Harper Lee. Commovente, divertente e appassionante, "Va’, metti una sentinella" è sì sequel del precedente, ma soprattutto è un magnifico romanzo a se stante.

But all the while Bellodi's investigation is being carefully monitored by a host of observers, near and far. They share a single concern: to keep the truth from coming out. This short, beautifully paced novel is a mesmerizing description of the Mafia at work.

A 7-time Teen Choice Award Winner on Freeform's most-watched series, Pretty Little Liars ... A social media influencer with over 7 million followers ... An avid birdwatcher? Yes, you read that correctly. Ian Harding is all of these things, and so much more. In this memoir, explore the unexpected world of a young celebrity through the lens of his favorite pastime — birding. Odd Birds is more than just a Hollywood memoir or tell-all. At its heart, this book is a coming-of-age story in which Ian wrestles with an ever evolving question— how can he still be himself, while also being a celebrity. Each humorous and heartfelt story features a particular bird—sometimes literal, at other times figurative.

A funny and heartwarming window into Ian’s life, Odd Birds is a must-read for fans of nature writing and memoir alike.
