WONDER IS SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING JULIA ROBERTS AND JACOB TREMBLAY! Over 5 million people have read the #1 New York Times bestseller Wonder—the book that inspired the Choose Kind movement—and have fallen in love with Auggie Pullman, an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face. Last year readers were given a special look at another side of his story with The Julian Chapter, and now they'll get a peek at Auggie's life before Beecher Prep, with an exclusive new short story told entirely from the point of view of Christopher, Auggie's oldest friend. Christopher was Auggie's best friend from the time they were babies until his family moved away; he was there through all of Auggie's surgeries and heartbreaks, through bad times and good—like Star Wars marathons and dreams of traveling to Pluto together. Alternating between childhood flashbacks and the present day, an especially bad day for Christopher, Pluto is the story of two boys grown apart learning that good friendships are worth a little extra effort.

The world's most infamous hacker offers an insider's view of the low-tech threats to high-tech security Kevin Mitnick's exploits as a cyber-desperado and fugitive form one of the most exhaustive FBI manhunts in history and have spawned dozens of articles, books, films, and documentaries. Since his release from federal prison, in 1998, Mitnick has turned his life around and established himself as one of the most sought-after computer security experts worldwide. Now, in The Art of Deception, the world's most notorious hacker gives new meaning to the old adage, "It takes a thief to catch a thief." Focusing on the human factors involved with information security, Mitnick explains why all the firewalls and encryption protocols in the world will never be enough to stop a savvy grifter intent on rifling a corporate database or an irate employee determined to crash a system. With the help of many fascinating true stories of successful attacks on business and government, he illustrates just how susceptible even the most locked-down information systems are to a slick con artist impersonating an IRS agent. Narrating from the points of view of both the attacker and the victims, he explains why each attack was so successful and how it could have been prevented in an engaging and highly readable style reminiscent of a true-crime novel. And, perhaps most importantly, Mitnick offers advice for preventing these types of social engineering hacks through security protocols, training programs, and manuals that address the human element of security.

A bestseller across Europe this international phenomenon is an ambitious, dynamic and intelligent historical novel written by four young Italian men. Set in the time of tremendous religious and political upheaval caused by the Reformation in Europe,Qbegins with Luther nailing his 95 theses on the door of the Wittenberg cathedral -- a historical flash point which would completely disrupt European society. The novel traces the adventures and conflicts of two central characters as they travel across Germany, Italy and the Netherlands. One is an Anabaptist, a member of the most radical Protestant sect. These are the anarchists of the Reformation who revolted against Catholicism and the emerging Reformation church. The other is a Catholic spy and informer. Like the leaders of religious reform, the book’s authors break with tradition -- seeking anonymity behind the pseudonym Luther Blissett. They have successfully created a world of intrigue, violence and intense political and religious passion. A phenomenal bestseller in Italy and Holland –Qis now being translated into eight languages. When it was first published anonymously in Italy, it was widely rumoured to be the work of Umberto Eco.

Winner of the Nobel Prize: “For her polyphonic writings, a monument to suffering and courage in our time.” —Swedish Academy, Nobel Prize citation From 1979 to 1989 a million Soviet troops engaged in a devastating war in Afghanistan that claimed 50,000 casualties—and the youth and humanity of many tens of thousands more. Creating controversy and outrage when it was first published in the USSR—it was called by reviewers there a “slanderous piece of fantasy” and part of a “hysterical chorus of malign attacks”—Zinky Boys presents the candid and affecting testimony of the officers and grunts, nurses and prostitutes, mothers, sons, and daughters who describe the war and its lasting effects. What emerges is a story that is shocking in its brutality and revelatory in its similarities to the American experience in Vietnam. The Soviet dead were shipped back in sealed zinc coffins (hence the term “Zinky Boys”), while the state denied the very existence of the conflict. Svetlana Alexievich brings us the truth of the Soviet-Afghan War: the beauty of the country and the savage Army bullying, the killing and the mutilation, the profusion of Western goods, the shame and shattered lives of returned veterans. Zinky Boys offers a unique, harrowing, and unforgettably powerful insight into the realities of war. The introduction has been omitted due to rights issues.

Spiazzante, ironica, sincera, una storia vera che commuove, diverte e fa riflettere “Sì, ora ve lo dico, ma promettetemi che andrete avanti a leggere. Non fate scherzi. L’ho saputo da poco pure io, me l’ha detto mia mamma, perché è capitato, ma com’è andata lo leggerete più avanti. Dopo ha voluto parlarmi la psicologa e anche la dottoressa che mi conosce da quando sono nato (è parecchio seria la dottoressa ma anche parecchio simpatica e gentile). Mi chiamo Giovanni ho dodici anni (quasi tredici) e sono nato con l’Hiv. Non lo sa nessuno, a scuola, alla polisportiva, all’oratorio, ma ho un gruppo di amici che lo sanno eccome e mi hanno istruito come in una piccola confraternita (sì, Star Wars l’ho visto tutto). Poi c’è mia mamma (mi vergogno un po’ a dirlo ma sono sincero: amo mia mamma! wow, l’ho detto), mio papà che gli voglio bene anche se è impossibile batterlo a Fifa con la PlayStation (accidenti!), mia zia supercreativa e un po’ scombinata (adesso si offende, lo so!) che mi porta a teatro e allo yoga della risata. Ho un desiderio e mi hanno detto che questo libro potrebbe aiutarmi a realizzarlo: vorrei parlare della mia malattia perché il silenzio mi fa sentire un po’ solo (e a me la solitudine proprio non piace) e perché può aiutare anche chi non ce l’ha a non prendersela (questo me l’ha detto la dottoressa, eh). Allora buona lettura” Giovanni. “Mi hanno detto che non devo aver paura perché non cambierà nulla, ma ora che lo so devo fare attenzione, non devo dirlo a nessuno, perché la mia malattia spaventa più quelli che non ce l’hanno che quelli che ce l’hanno.” Giovanni F., 12 anni
