More trouble at school and at home — and the discovery of a missive from her late soldier sister — send Angie and a long-ago friend on an RV road trip across Ohio. Sophomore year has just begun, and Angie is miserable. Her girlfriend, KC, has moved away; her good friend, Jake, is keeping his distance; and the resident bully has ramped up an increasingly vicious and targeted campaign to humiliate her. An over-the-top statue dedication planned for her sister, who died in Iraq, is almost too much to bear, and it doesn't help that her mother has placed a symbolic empty urn on their mantel. At the ceremony, a soldier hands Angie a final letter from her sister, including a list of places she wanted the two of them to visit when she got home from the war. With her mother threatening to send Angie to a “treatment center” and the situation at school becoming violent, Angie enlists the help of her estranged childhood friend, Jamboree. Along with a few other outsiders, they pack into an RV and head across the state on the road trip Angie's sister did not live to take. It might be just what Angie needs to find a way to let her sister go, and find herself in the process.

Dans son monde imaginaire, Grayson est une princesse. Il a de longs cheveux blonds et il porte une magnifique robe dorée. Dans la vraie vie, les cheveux longs et les robes chatoyantes, ce n'est pas pour les garçons. Grayson se cache dans des vêtements amples, évite les autres à tout prix et enfouit ses dessins au fond de ses tiroirs. Alors, Grayson fait semblant d'être ce que les autres voient, quitte à s'effacer complètement. Jusqu'au jour où il décide de postuler pour la pièce de théâtre de l'école et décroche le premier rôle : celui de la déesse grecque Perséphone. Son choix déclenche une véritable tempête autour de lui au sein de l'école mais aussi de ses proches. Pourtant, malgré les rumeurs et les humiliations auxquelles il doit faire face, c'est aussi la première fois que Grayson ose être lui-même. Sa sincérité, son audace et son charme lui valent de nouvelles amitiés qui lui font entrevoir un avenir nouveau, où il pourra enfin s'affirmer en dehors des planches. « Cela faisait longtemps qu'un livre ne m'avait pas ému aux larmes (...) Je le remercie d'exister pour tous les jeunes lecteurs en quête d'une identité et d'une voix propres face à la pression sociale. » Rick Riordan à partir de 13 ans

At forty-one, Vivian Armstrong Gray's life as an investigative journalist is crumbling. Humiliated after taking a bullet in her backside during an exposé, Vivi learns that she's pregnant, jobless, and very hormonal.

Down South, it's her sister's ballroom dance studio that becomes her undercover spot where she learns about the local life-and where unexpected friendships develop. As she digs up her long buried roots, she starts to wonder if life inside the picket fence is really so bad after all. Read Wendy Wax's post on the Penguin Blog.

Bianca n’est peut-être pas la fille la plus jolie, ni la plus populaire du lycée mais elle a d’autres atouts : deux meilleures copines, un esprit mordant et beaucoup de second degré. Elle est aussi bien trop maligne pour tomber sous le charme du sexy Wesley, coureur de jupons invétéré et son ennemi juré depuis qu’il la surnomme la D.U.F.F (Dodue, Utile et Franchement Fade). Jusqu’au jour où elle commence à se demander si ses vraies ennemies ne seraient pas en fait ses amies si jolies, si parfaites et si populaires qui ont fait d’elle leur faire valoir : la copine un peu moche mais bien utile... leur D.U.F.F. ? Fatiguée d’être toujours reléguée au second plan, Bianca décide de sortir de l’ombre et de se débarrasser de son surnom en menant une véritable révolution contre les impitoyables règles sociales du lycée. Et en croisant sur son chemin un improbable allié...

Three women unite—and fight back—after their husbands do them wrong, in this tale of “wickedly funny female bonding” by a New York Times–bestselling author (People). Angela, half-Jewish, half-Italian, and all New Yorker, is a lawyer married to Reid, a handsome old-money WASP. Michelle adores her childhood sweetheart husband, Frank, and the dream house he’s provided for her and their two beautiful children. Jada is an African American working mom trying to maintain a happy home, despite her husband Clinton’s failing business. But then, like a bad soufflé, the lives of these three thirtysomething women collapse as they each discover the truth about their dirty, rotten mates. Uniting for solace and support, they draw on one another’s friendship to heal their wounds. Bowed but not beaten, this smart, audacious trio will concoct a brilliant recipe to take back what’s theirs and serve justice on their duplicitous men—and transform them from victims to victors . . . This is a “riotous” tale from the bestselling author of such beloved novels as The First Wives Club and Fashionably Late (USA Today). “Chances are good that you’ll like these women and love this book.” —Daily News (New York)
