Dreams of Joy, Lisa See

Dreams of Joy by Lisa See


In her most powerful novel yet, acclaimed author Lisa See returns to the story of sisters Pearl and May from Shanghai Girls, and Pearl’s strong-willed nineteen-year-old daughter, Joy. Reeling from newly uncovered family secrets, Joy runs away to Shanghai in early 1957 to find her birth father—the artist Z. G. Li, with whom both May and Pearl were once in love. Dazzled by him, and blinded by idealism and defiance, Joy throws herself into the New Society of Red China, heedless of the dangers in the Communist regime. Devastated by Joy’s flight and terrified for her safety, Pearl is determined to save her daughter, no matter the personal cost. From the crowded city to remote villages, Pearl confronts old demons and almost insurmountable challenges as she follows Joy, hoping for reconciliation. Yet even as Joy’s and Pearl’s separate journeys converge, one of the most tragic episodes in China’s history threatens their very lives.

Twilight Saga: New Moon, Stephenie Meyer

Twilight Saga: New Moon by Stephenie Meyer

I knew we were both in mortal danger. Still, in that instant, I felt well. Whole. I could feel my heart racing in my chest, the blood pulsing hot and fast through my veins again. My lungs filled deep with the sweet scent that came off his skin. It was like there had never been any hole in my chest.
I was perfect - not healed, but as if there had never been a wound in the first place.

At First Sight, Nicholas Sparks

At First Sight by Nicholas Sparks
RM25 (Free Pos Daftar)

There are a few things Jeremy Marsh was sure he'd never do: he'd never leave New York City; never give his heart away again after barely surviving one failed marriage; and, most of all, never become a parent. Now, Jeremy is living in the tiny town of Boone Creek, North Carolina, married to Lexie Darnell, the love of his life, and anticipating the birth of their daughter. But just as his life seems to be settling into a blissful pattern, an unsettling and mysterious message re-opens old wounds and sets off a chain of events that will forever change the course of this young couple's marriage.

Dramatic, heartbreaking and surprising, this is a story about the love between a man and a woman and between a parent and a child. More than that, it is a story that beautifully portrays how the same emotion that can break your heart is also the one that will ultimately heal it.

The Last Empress, Anchee Min (#2)

The Last Empress by Anchee Min
RM25 (Free Pos Daftar)

The last decades of the nineteenth century were a violent period in China’s history, marked by humiliating foreign incursions and domestic rebellions and ending in the demise of the Ch’ing Dynasty. The only constant during this tumultuous time was the power wielded by one woman, the resilient, ever-resourceful Tsu Hsi -- or Empress Orchid, as readers came to know her in Anchee Min’s critically acclaimed, best-selling novel covering her rise to power.
The Last Empress is the story of Orchid’s dramatic transition from a strong-willed, instinctive young woman to a wise and politically savvy leader who ruled China for more than four decades. In this concluding volume Min gives us a compelling, very human leader who assumed power reluctantly and sacrificed all to protect those she loved and an empire that was doomed to die.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, J.K. Rowling

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling
Part 1
Part 2
RM20 each
Buy both for RM42 inclusive Registered Post

There is a Door at the end of a silent corridor. And it's haunting Harry Potter's dreams. Why else would he be waking in the middle of the night, screaming in terror? 

Here are just a few things on Harry's mind: 

-A Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher with a personality like poisoned honey.
-A venomous, disgruntled house-elf.
-Ron as keeper of the Gryffindor Quidditch team.
-The looming terror of the end-of-term Ordinary Wizarding Level exams

... and of course, the growing threat of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. In the richest installment yet of J. K. Rowling's seven-part story, Harry Potter is faced with the unreliability of the very government of the magical world and the impotence of the authorities at Hogwarts. 

Despite this (or perhaps because of it), he finds depth and strength in his friends, beyond what even he knew; boundless loyalty; and unbearable sacrifice. 

Though thick runs the plot (as well as the spine), readers will race through these pages and leave Hogwarts, like Harry, wishing only for the next train back.

Is Anybody There?:
'Last year I did this reallly dumb thing. I got into a car with someone I didn't know...'
If Mum had been an ordinary mum, she might have got the truth out of me. But she's not an ordinary mum, she's a clairvoyant, and she's always very careful not to pry. I didn't even tell Dee and Chloe, my two best friends. And now I'm not the only one in trouble...

Skinny Melon and Me:
This is the diary of me, Cherry Louise Waterton, and I am writing for posterity, in other words the future. And do I have a lot to write! Mum's just re-married, but how could she marry a man called Roland Butter-what kind of a name is that? He's a total dweeb who sends me coded messages and calls me Cherry Pie. Yuck!
If thins get too bad at home I could always drown myself in the school-dinner special-curried compost heap. I've got my best friend, Skinny Melon, to cheer me up but I'm not sure if even she can save me from Roland and his message, or work out what Mum's big secret is...

 Sugar and Spice:
Shay was totally drop-dead gorgeous. Why would a person that looked like a model want to sit next to me - an insignificant weed with a brace on her teeth? And glasses.

Boys Beware:
Even though Tash and Emily go to a nunnery (well, an all girls' school, which amounts to the same thing!), they are into boys in a BIG WAY. They're also stepsisters and the hugest of best friends. So when their mum and dad have to go Peru for work for a couple of months, leaving the girls in their own flat in Aunty Jay's house, they are seriously excited. Of course they've got to take their weird elder sister, Ali, hundreds of her Star Trek videos and Fat Man the cat, but apart from that they are INDEPENDENT GIRLS. And when they find out that there's a dishy boy living in the flat downstairs, they just can't believe their luck...  

Over the Moon:
More comedy, calamity and cool characters from Jean Ure, the queen of teen. Scarlett is finding out that life is full of ups and downs. One minute she's over the moon and the next she's down in the dumps. She's bright, attractive and twelve years old, but she has to rely on more than just her looks to get her the grades she needs to qualify for the Founder's Day dinner and dance. And what's she going to do when her eyes mysteriously puff up? Who's going to want to take her to the dance in that state, least of all a dish like golden-haired Sun God Matt?

  Gone Missing:
Fourteen-year-old Jade is fed up with fighting with her mum and step-dad, and her shy sixteen-year-old friend, Honey is having a miserable time with her mum, but when Jade decides they should both run away, Honey isn't so sure. It's only when they get to London and things don't work out quite how they expected that Honey shows she has hidden depths, and Jade realises that home is not so bad after all! This book deals with very real problems in a humorous, entertaining, and accessible way that will leave young readers with hope. 

Hunky Dory:
A classic Jean Ure story for girls AND boys, about a boy who's driving girls wild...Dorian Jones is an 11-year-old boy who is having 'terrible trouble with girls'. They just won't leave him alone. Girls at school and his annoying younger sisters' friends have massive crushes on him, but Dory's passion is for dinosaurs and he is happiest excavating his back garden. His best friend at school is Aaron and his best friend out of school is a girl called the Herb. How will Dory stop girls throwing themselves at him? Why is Aaron holding hands with Sophy Timms? And why is the Herb acting so strange around Dory all of a sudden!
