With the heart, daring, and evocative atmosphere of Winter’s Bone and True Grit, and driven by the raw, whip-smart voice of Percy James, a blistering debut about a fearless sixteen-year old girl whose search for her missing mother leads to an unexpected discovery, and a life or death struggle in the harsh frozen landscape of the Upper Midwest. As a blizzard bears down, Percy James sets off to find her troubled mother, Carletta. For years, Percy has had to take care of herself and Mama—a woman who’s been unraveling for as long as her daughter can remember. Fearing Carletta is strung out on meth and that she won’t survive the storm, Percy heads for Shelton Potter’s cabin, deep in the woods of Northern Michigan. A two-bit criminal, as incompetent as he his violent, Shelton has been smoking his own cook and grieving the death of his beloved Labrador, Old Bo. But when Percy arrives, there is no sign of Carletta. Searching the house, she finds Shelton and his girlfriend drugged into oblivion—and a crying baby girl left alone in a freezing room upstairs. From the moment the baby wraps a tiny hand around her finger, Percy knows she must save her—a split-second decision that is the beginning of a dangerous odyssey in which she must battle the elements and evade Shelton and a small band of desperate criminals, hell-bent on getting that baby back. Knowing she and the child cannot make it alone, Percy seeks help from Carletta’s ex, Portis Dale, who is the closest thing she’s ever had to a father. As the storm breaks and violence erupts, Percy will be forced to confront the haunting nature of her mother’s affliction and finds her own fate tied more and more inextricably to the baby she is determined to save. Filled with the sweeping sense of cultural and geographic isolation of its setting—the hills of fictional Cutler County in northern Michigan—and told in Percy’s unflinching style, Sweetgirl is an affecting exploration of courage, sacrifice, and the ties that bind—a taut and darkly humorous tour-de-force that is horrifying, tender, and hopeful.

From the award-winning author of The Golden Mean, a captivating, wholly transporting new novel that follows Aristotle’s strong-willed daughter as she shapes her own destiny: an unexpected love story, a tender portrait of a girl and her father, and an astonishing journey through the underbelly of a supposedly enlightened society. Aristotle has never been able to resist a keen mind, and Pythias is certainly her father’s daughter: besting his brightest students, refusing to content herself with a life circumscribed by the kitchen, the loom, and, eventually, a husband. Into her teenage years, she is protected by the reputation of her adored father, but with the death of Alexander the Great, her fortunes suddenly change. Aristotle’s family is forced to flee Athens for a small town, where the great philosopher soon dies, and orphaned Pythias quickly discovers that the world is not a place of logic after all, but one of superstition. As threats close in on her—a rebellious household, capricious gods and goddesses—she will need every ounce of wit she possesses, and the courage to seek refuge where she least expects it. This ebook edition includes a Reading Group Guide.

The trunk was corded and strapped and put away, and Priscilla stood by her aunt's side in the little parlor of Penywern Cottage.

KylahI've always lived in the shadows of my athletic older brother and my charismatic twin sister. And that's okay by me. I don't mind being known as the shy wallflower. The gawky geek. The sweet, virginal girl. Well, that's one label I've been trying to rid myself of since starting my freshman year in college this year. The thing is, no one's ever looked twice at me. Until I met Van Gerard. He notices me. He looks at me and seems to like what he sees. He understands and listens to me. He's become a great friend. The problem is, I don't want him as a friend. I want more. But my brother - along with a state line between us, and oh yeah, Van's long-time girlfriend - are just a few complications getting in the way of what I want.VanI thought my senior year in college would be the best time of my life. I'm a starter on a Pac-12 basketball team, set to graduate with a degree in Finance. I have a girlfriend whom I'd planned to start a future with. I thought my life was already mapped out. But then the bottom dropped out with a confession I never expected to hear, from the girl I thought I knew. I thought wrong. Luckily for me, Kylah Griffin was there to break my fall. She's the best thing this year has given me. She's helped me through a devastating blow that could have sent me reeling. I know she wants more, but I'm not sure I can give it. Now that I've been burned, I don't think I can go there again. Kylah's not a hook-up, and she's definitely not a rebound. She's a sweet girl who deserves more than to be friend-zoned. If only things weren't so complicated.
