For Noa and Callum, being together is dangerous, even deadly. From the start, sixteen-year-old Noa senses that the mysterious transfer student to her Monterey boarding school is different. Callum unnerves and intrigues her, and even as she struggles through family tragedy, she's irresistibly drawn to him. Soon they are bound by his deepest secret: Callum is Fae, banished from another world after a loss hauntingly similar to her own. But in Noa's world, Callum needs a special human energy, Light, to survive; his body steals it through touch--or a kiss. And Callum's not the only Fae on the hunt. When Callum is taken, Noa must decide: Will she sacrifice everything to save him? Even if it means learning their love may not be what she thought?

Londres, 1912. Edward Malone, du Daily Gazette, est envoyé par son rédacteur-en-chef interviewer le terrible professeur George Challenger, dont la réputation est entachée par de nombreux scandales à la suite de bagarres avec des journalistes. Malone se fait passer pour un jeune étudiant pour mieux berner le professeur, mais il est rapidement démasqué : les deux hommes en viennent aux mains. Le journaliste refuse pourtant de porter plainte, ce qui amène le professeur à lui révéler sa découverte concernant l'existence de dinosaures encore vivants en Amérique du Sud d'après le carnet d'un certain Maple White, un explorateur ayant vu des choses formidables sur un haut-plateau coupé du monde moderne. Challenger met sur pied une expédition pour rapporter des preuves à la communauté scientifique sceptique. Malone accepte de se joindre à lui pour couvrir l'évènement en correspondant par lettres à la Gazette, mais aussi pour obtenir la main de sa fiancée Gladys en se distinguant par un acte héroïque. Lord John Roxton, chasseur émérite, ainsi que le professeur Summerlee, confrère et rival de Challenger, sont également de la partie. Après une longue traversée en cargo, puis en pirogue, les quatre explorateurs et leurs guides indigènes s'enfoncent au-delà du bassin de l'Amazone.
Author: Vladimir Nabokov
Awe and exhiliration--along with heartbreak and mordant wit--abound in Lolita, Nabokov's most famous and controversial novel, which tells the story of the aging Humbert Humbert's obsessive, devouring, and doomed passion for the nymphet Dolores Haze. Lolita is also the story of a hypercivilized European colliding with the cheerful barbarism of postwar America. Most of all, it is a meditation on love--love as outrage and hallucination, madness and transformation.

Emma - I know it sounds crazy. You (and Mum!) will be wondering where I've been disappearing to, and when I'll be back. That's why I'm leaving you all this evidence - in case something happens and I DON'T come back. Look at everything in my book. Call the phone numbers. Check out the websites. But, you can't tell ANYBODY about it, unless you want to end up in over your head, like me. But don't worry, I'll be OK (I think). Hey, maybe this is the beginning of a new life for me. For sure it's the end of the old one. Call me. Love, Cathy This book reaches beyond the written word to interact with teenage girls in ways they are quite familiar with in other areas of their lives. From instant-messaging to text-messaging, from surfing the web to having their own sites, the age-old story of 'boy dumps girl and girl wins boy back' is lifted from the page to our three-dimensional, 21st-century world.
