Book excerpt: An extraordinary new novel from Jasmine Warga, Newbery Honor–winning author of Other Words for Home, about loss and healing—and how friendship can be magical. Cora hasn’t spoken to her best friend, Quinn, in a year. Despite living next door to each other, they exist in separate worlds of grief. Cora is still grappling with the death of her beloved sister in a school shooting, and Quinn is carrying the guilt of what her brother did. On the day of Cora’s twelfth birthday, Quinn leaves a box on her doorstep with a note. She has decided that the only way to fix things is to go back in time to the moment before her brother changed all their lives forever—and stop him. In spite of herself, Cora wants to believe. And so the two former friends begin working together to open a wormhole in the fabric of the universe. But as they attempt to unravel the mysteries of time travel to save their siblings, they learn that the magic of their friendship may actually be the key to saving themselves. The Shape of Thunder is a deeply moving story, told with exceptional grace, about friendship and loss—and how believing in impossible things can help us heal.

His name is Marduk and he is the descendant of a demonic Babylonian deity. Now abroad in Paris, he has sought out the villainous John Dee and they have hatched a plan together that will create chaos and ensure ruin. And it will fall to Garet to confront this new threat. Around her she gathers a band of modern-day knights – a brotherhood dedicated to preserving the sanctity of the time-line. But there are others out there who would see Garet fail and who will stop at nothing to bring an end to everything she – and we – hold dear . . .

Book The Shape of a Man

    Book Details:
  • Author : Randall K. Ivey
  • Publisher : iUniverse
  • Release : 2002
  • ISBN : 0595221289
  • Pages : 138 pages

Download or read book The Shape of a Man written by Randall K. Ivey and published by iUniverse. This book was released on 2002 with total page 138 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: THE SHAPE OF A MAN: A NOVELLA AND FIVE STORIES is storytelling in the grand Southern tradition of Robert Penn Warren, William Faulkner, and Flannery O'Connor. In the title novella a young boy seeks to emulate the courage of his father as the two of them attempt to unravel the mystery of a ghastly crime against a simpleton fieldhand in 1950's rural South Carolina. In "Laissez Faire Redux" a traditional South Carolinian and his liberal brother-in-law argue over the flying of the Confederate flag. "Another Woman's Ring" depicts a late-life romance, while in "Midnight" a middle-aged housewife is tempted to passion by a mysterious stranger. "The Liberation of Marian K." takes place in fashionable Manhattan: a man comes to admire an eccentric socialite he once despised. "Family Portrait" partakes of the old Russian literary tradition, exemplified by Tolstoy and Turgenev, of depicting a life in miniature: a woman risks madness and ridicule to preserve the heroic memory of her dead son.

Book A Cloud in the Shape of a Girl

Download or read book A Cloud in the Shape of a Girl written by Jean Thompson and published by Simon & Schuster. This book was released on 2019-10-22 with total page 352 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From National Book Award finalist and the New York Times bestselling author of The Year We Left Home comes a “powerful, beautifully crafted” (People) family saga about three generations of women who struggle to find freedom and happiness in their small Midwestern college town. A Cloud in the Shape of a Girl is a poignant novel about three generations of the Wise family—Evelyn, Laura, and Grace—as they hunt for contentment amid chaos of their own making. We see these women and their trials, small and large: social slights and heartbreaks; marital disappointments and infidelities; familial dysfunction; mortality. Spanning from World War II to the present, Thompson reveals a matrilineal love story that is so perfectly grounded in our time—a story of three women regressing, stalling, and yes, evolving, over decades. One of the burning questions she asks is: by serving her family, is a woman destined to repeat the mistakes of previous generations, or can she transcend the expectations of a place, and a time? Can she truly be free? Evelyn, Laura, and Grace are the glue that binds their family together. Tethered to their small Midwestern town—by choice or chance—Jean Thompson seamlessly weaves together the stories of the Wise women with humanity and elegance, through their heartbreaks, setbacks, triumphs, and tragedies. “Thompson’s new novel draws the reader in with character and plot…but what ultimately holds the reader enthralled is…her ability to capture the nuance of individual moments, thoughts, and reactions. No one writing today is better at this…[an] extraordinary novel” (Washington Independent Review of Books).

Book The Shape and Message of Book III  Psalms 73 89

Download or read book The Shape and Message of Book III Psalms 73 89 written by Robert L. Cole and published by A&C Black. This book was released on 2000-03-01 with total page 266 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This study of Book III of the Psalter examines evidence for the canonical organization of these seventeen psalms and finds cohesive links that create a consistent and coherent dialogue throughout. Continual laments by a righteous individual on behalf of and in concert with the nation spring from the non-fulfilment of hopes raised in Psalm 72 at the end of Book II. Divine answers give reasons for the continuing desolation but assure the eventual establishment of a kingdom without specifying its time. Book III ends as it began, asking how long God's wrath will smoulder, and in response Book IV opens with Psalm 90 contrasting human and divine perspectives on time.

Book Designing Sound

  • Author : Andy Farnell
  • Publisher : MIT Press
  • Release : 2010-08-20
  • ISBN : 0262014416
  • Pages : 689 pages

Download or read book Designing Sound written by Andy Farnell and published by MIT Press. This book was released on 2010-08-20 with total page 689 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A practitioner's guide to the basic principles of creating sound effects using easily accessed free software. Designing Sound teaches students and professional sound designers to understand and create sound effects starting from nothing. Its thesis is that any sound can be generated from first principles, guided by analysis and synthesis. The text takes a practitioner's perspective, exploring the basic principles of making ordinary, everyday sounds using an easily accessed free software. Readers use the Pure Data (Pd) language to construct sound objects, which are more flexible and useful than recordings. Sound is considered as a process, rather than as data—an approach sometimes known as “procedural audio.” Procedural sound is a living sound effect that can run as computer code and be changed in real time according to unpredictable events. Applications include video games, film, animation, and media in which sound is part of an interactive process. The book takes a practical, systematic approach to the subject, teaching by example and providing background information that offers a firm theoretical context for its pragmatic stance. [Many of the examples follow a pattern, beginning with a discussion of the nature and physics of a sound, proceeding through the development of models and the implementation of examples, to the final step of producing a Pure Data program for the desired sound. Different synthesis methods are discussed, analyzed, and refined throughout.] After mastering the techniques presented in Designing Sound, students will be able to build their own sound objects for use in interactive applications and other projects

Book The Shape of a Pocket

    Book Details:
  • Author : John Berger
  • Publisher : Bloomsbury Publishing
  • Release : 2014-09-12
  • ISBN : 1408859580
  • Pages : 272 pages

Download or read book The Shape of a Pocket written by John Berger and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2014-09-12 with total page 272 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: John Berger writes: 'The pocket in question is a small pocket of resistance. A pocket is formed when two or more people come together in agreement. The resistance is against the inhumanity of the new world economic order. The people coming together are the reader, me and those the essays are about - Rembrandt, Palaeolithic cave painters, a Romanian peasant, ancient Egyptians, an expert in the loneliness of certain hotel bedrooms, dogs at dusk, a man in a radio station. And unexpectedly, our exchanges strengthen each of us in our conviction that what is happening to the world today is wrong, and that what is often said about it is a lie. I've never written a book with a greater sense of urgency.'

Book The Shape of Time  Rymworld Arcana  Book 1

Download or read book The Shape of Time Rymworld Arcana Book 1 written by Ryan Calejo and published by Abrams. This book was released on 2023-09-12 with total page 363 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: First in the middle-grade mind-bending Rymworld Arcana adventure series from award-winning author Ryan Calejo, The Shape of Time is destined to be an instant classic. Fourteen-year-old Antares De La Vega is a natural born adventurer. He dreams of journeying across burning deserts, trekking through wild and uncharted jungles, sailing the farthest reaches of the seas—and yet, he’s never even stepped foot outside of South Florida. But that all changes when strange creatures come leaping out of lightning bolts to kidnap him. Locked away in a secret prison in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle, Antares meets fourteen-year-old Magdavellía, a mysterious and iron-willed girl who opens his eyes to a shocking truth: that this world is a far different place than he’s been led to believe. He learns of the existence of the Flat Earth Society, an ancient secret order, whose main function is to keep the world beyond the great Ice Wall a mystery—a land known as Rymworld. But Rymworld is in trouble. Led by a nameless evil, a sinister group of mystics seek to seize control over its only true resource: time itself. Antares and Magdavellía must set out beyond the edges of any map to discover the undiscoverable: a lost and forgotten island where there is rumored to exist a legendary artifact—a mythical compass that just might hold the key to foiling the mystics’ plans. Following a series of intricately concealed clues left behind by Magdavellía’s parents (clues Antares seems to be the key to unlocking), they must wield both geometry and alchemy, outsmart molemen and mermaids, and outrun fiendish outer space aliens––all while attempting to solve a riddle as old and mystifying as the sun. Includes Black-and-White Illustrations
