WINNER OF THE U.S. NATIONAL BOOK AWARD 2017 FOR YOUNG PEOPLE'S LITERATURE! 'Sometimes, family hurts each other. But after that’s done you bandage each other up, and you move on. Together. So you can go and think that you’re some lone wolf, but you’re not. You’ve got us now, like it or not, and we’ve got you.' When 16 year-old Grace gives up her baby for adoption, she decides that the time has come to find out more about her own biological mother. Although her biological mum proves elusive, her search leads her to two half-siblings she never knew existed. Maya, 15, has been adopted by wealthy parents and seems to have the picture-perfect family – that is, if you look past her alcoholic mother and the fact that Maya stands out like a sore thumb. Older brother Joaquin hasn’t been so lucky. At 18, he’s shuffled between foster home after foster home, always careful never to get attached to anyone or anything, because it always gets taken away. When these three siblings come together, they find in themselves the place they can belong, while the secrets they guard threaten to explode... For fans of John Green, Rainbow Rowell and Nicola Yoon, Far From the Tree is a raw, compelling, and ultimately uplifting story of what it means to be family. 'Benway’s unforgettable novel explores the paradoxes and entanglements of unconventional families … It’s a melodrama, to be sure, but with as much brain as heart. Benway writes with remarkable control and has the rare talent of almost vanishing as an author as she inhabits each character’s perspective.' The New York Times 'Family issues are neither airbrushed nor oversimplified... From the first page to the last, this compassionate, funny, moving, compulsively readable novel about what makes a family gets it right.' Kirkus Reviews 'Equally heartwarming and heart-wrenching... Benway delves into the souls of these characters as they wrestle to overcome feelings of inadequacy, abandonment, and betrayal, gradually coming to understand themselves and each other.' Publishers Weekly 'Far from the Tree is the kind of book that strikes close to a reader’s heart. I had to know what happened to Grace, Maya, and Joaquin, and I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. Beautiful.' Ally Condie, author of The Matched Trilogy 'Far From the Tree is a touching story about the strength and love of unconventional families, and the unbreakable bond of siblings near and far. Robin Benway’s characters are authentically crafted, full of heart, hurt, and hope.' Brandy Colbert, author of Pointe and Little & Lion ‘In the eloquent confidence of its life-embracing argument, the book really is something special’ The Wall Street Journal Praise for Emmy & Oliver: 'Robin Benway writes with her full heart. Emmy & Oliver is a genuinely sweet and funny novel bursting with the inextinguishable forces of love-between parents and children, distant and inseparable friends, new and reunited lovers.' Stephanie Perkins, New York Times bestselling author of Isla and the Happily Ever After 'Emmy & Oliver is wonderful. Funny, heartbreaking, and true. Robin Benway has written characters I felt like I'd known forever, and was so sad to see go. A must-read.' Morgan Matson, author of Since You've Been Gone

Celeste English and Ronnie Frazier are sisters, but they couldn't be more different. Celeste is a doctor's wife, living a perfect and elegant life. But secretly, she is terrified: her marriage is falling apart and her need to control the people around her threatens to alienate her entire family. And Celeste allows no one to see how vulnerable she really is. Ronnie is an actress, living in New York. Her life, however, is a lie: she has no money, has no home, and her life is held together by "chewing gum, paper clips, and spit," though she wants everyone to think that her life is one of high glamour and budding fame. When their father dies, the sisters inherit a house in Prosper, North Carolina. Their mother, Della, is adamant that they forget about going there and dredging up the past. Because Della has secrets she'd rather not see come to light-secrets and heartbreak she's kept from everyone for years. Neither Ronnie, Celeste, nor Della realize just what their trip to Prosper will uncover and they must discover for themselves who they really are, who they really love, and what the future holds for them. Far From The Tree is a novel that asks the questions: can the past ever truly remain hidden? Can mothers and daughters put aside their usual roles long enough to get to really know each other? Long enough to see they each have felt the love, loss, heartache and joy that they share as women. And can two strangers realize that they are, and always will be, sisters?

Ο Ιππότης των Επτά Βασιλείων λαμβάνει χώρα σχεδόν έναν αιώνα πριν από τα γεγονότα του Game of Thronesκαι περιλαμβάνει τρεις ιστορίες που αποτελούν το προοίμιο του αριστουργήματος του George R. R. Martin με τίτλο Το Τραγούδι της Φωτιάς και του Πάγου. Οι περιπέτειες αυτές, που παρουσιάζονται για πρώτη φορά συγκεντρωμένες σε έναν τόμο, αφηγούνται γεγονότα από την εποχή που η δυναστεία των Ταργκάρυεν εξακολουθεί να κατέχει τον Σιδερένιο Θρόνο και οι μνήμες από την ύπαρξη της τελευταίας δράκαινας παραμένουν ακόμη ζωντανές. Ο νεαρός, αφελής, αλλά γενναίος περιπλανώμενος ιππότης σερ Ντάνκαν ο Ψηλός υπερέχει των αντιπάλων του – αν όχι σε πείρα, σίγουρα σε ανάστημα. Στις περιπέτειές του τον συνοδεύει ο μικροσκοπικός του ακόλουθος, ένα αγόρι ονόματι Εγκ – του οποίου το πραγματικό όνομα (και επτασφράγιστο μυστικό) είναι Αίγκον Ταργκάρυεν. Παρόλο που σε ολόκληρο το Γουέστερος δύσκολα θα έβρισκε κανείς πιο απίθανους ήρωες, το μέλλον επιφυλάσσει σε αυτούς τους δύο ένα σπουδαίο πεπρωμένο… καθώς και ισχυρούς εχθρούς, βασιλικές ίντριγκες κι εξωφρενικά κατορθώματα.

Solid state drives (SSDs) are becoming more common with their main advantage of faster reads compared to hard disk drives (HDDs). However, writes are relatively slower, indeed asymmetric with respect to reads, unlike in HDDs where read and write are comparable. Current indexing structures were designed for HDDs and aim at reducing the number of reads at query time. In SSDs, index writes may impact the overall query performance in the presence of updates. Thus, we focus on minimizing the number of writes during index update, considering the R-tree in particular, given that it is an ubiquitous and update-expensive indexing structure. We propose the FAR-tree (for Flash Aware R-tree) which aims at avoiding node splits by building a chain of nodes on leaf nodes. Our experiments using real and synthetic datasets show that the FAR-tree can yield a more update-efficient index at the cost of some overhead at query time.

For the only son of the famous preacher and author Norman Vincent Peale, life was not without its challenges. In this memoir, John S. Peale shares his story, one of love, tension, and resentment. Life in the shadow of a famous father became a long and heartfelt struggle to become his own man. Despite the difficulties he faced, he found a way to thrive and make his own way. After a long and distinguished career as a professor of philosophy, he became a scholar of religion in China. He was actively involved in church and community. His has been a successful road, but it wasn’t always an easy one. Tensions between the famous father and his son created darkness and despair. While the two loved each other, their relationship was strained at best. Due to John’s strength of character and willful endurance, he was able to move beyond a sense of unworthiness to embrace that he is, indeed, a talented and giving man. Now in his seventies, John, with his warm and positive smile, emulates Confucius: “At seventy, I could give my heart and mind free rein without overstepping the mark.” Although the story of a famous parent causing resentment and isolation from a son or daughter is not unfamiliar, John seeks to inspire others in similar situations to have hope and faith in their own abilities and identity.

Written for small builders and tradesmen such as bricklayers and carpenters, as well as householders wanting to provide more space and enhanced living conditions without the substantial cost of moving house. While there are many books that deal with the construction aspects of extending a house, there are few sources that combine the planning, construction and regulatory aspects into one easily accessible source. Extending and Improving a Home meets that need. By focussing on specific building elements – foundations, walls, roofs, services, finishes etc – the book neatly provides a comprehensive, accessible guide to the areas of home improvement that cause most concern for householders and small builders. Extending and Improving a Home will: Guide you through the maze of legislation that affects most building alterations and extensions; show how to go about getting a project realised in terms of design, choice of contractor and construction, successfully and to budget, and give sound technical solutions for all the elements of a project that also comply with Building Regulations.
