Thomas, Angie, author.

Translation of: The hate you give.
In Spanish.
Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed. Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil's name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr. But what Starr does--or does not--say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.

Pomoćni majordom Malković

December 13, 2019
deWitt, Patrick, 1975- author.
© 2015
324 pages ; 23 cm
First published in English, in September 2015, in Toronto, Canada, as: Undermajordomo Minor.
"Lucy Minor is the resident odd duck in the hamlet of Bury. He is a compulsive liar, a sickly weakling in a town famous for begetting brutish giants. Then Lucy accepts employment assisting the majordomo of the remote, foreboding Castle Von Aux. While tending to his new post as undermajordomo, he soon discovers the place harbours many dark secrets, not least of which is the whereabouts of the castle's master, Baron Von Aux. Thus begins a tale of polite theft, bitter heartbreak, domestic mystery, and cold-blooded murder. Undermajordomo Minor is an ink-black comedy of manners, an adventure, and a mystery, and a searing portrayal of rural Alpine bad behaviour, but above all it is a love story. And Lucy must be careful, for love is a violent thing." --

Hayatın özünde, atomda veya enerjide evreni düşleyen şey her neyse, ondan evrimin mucizeleri fışkırıyordu... Öyle bir canlı çeşitliliği ki istediğinde vakur istediğinde öfkeli, hareketleri hem kibar hem de dehşetengiz, adeta ilahi göklerin tecellisi... insan aklı asla tamamına vâkıf olamayacaktı, olmamalıydı da. Zaman ilerledikçe düzlüklerden dağlar yükseldi, sonsuz sevgiyle mucizeler çoğaldı. O mucizeler hayvanlardı." -- Back cover.

Amid the ashes of Nazi Germany's defeat, Marianne von Lingenfels returns to the once-grand castle of her husband's ancestors, an imposing stone fortress now fallen into ruin following years of war. The widow of a resister murdered in the failed July 20, 1944 plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler, Marianne plans to uphold the promise she made to her husband's brave conspirators: to find and protect their wives, her fellow resistance widows. First Marianne rescues six-year-old Martin, the son of her dearest childhood friend, from a Nazi reeducation home. Together, they make their way across the smoldering wreckage of their homeland to Berlin, where Martin's mother, the beautiful and naive Benita, has fallen into the hands of occupying Red Army soldiers. Then she locates Ania, another resister's wife, and her two boys, now refugees languishing in one of the many camps that house the millions displaced by the war..." -- abridgment of a synopsis from
