Certo dia, quando Lucy Silchester volta do trabalho, há um envelope de ouro no tapete. E um convite dentro dele para se encontrar com a Vida. Sua vida. Pode soar peculiar, mas Lucy leu sobre isso em uma revista. De qualquer forma, ela não pode ir ao encontro: está muito ocupada desprezando seu emprego, fugindo de seus amigos e evitando sua família. Mas a vida de Lucy não é o que parece. Algumas das escolhas que fez — e histórias que contou — também não são o que parecem. Desde o momento em que ela conhece o homem que se apresenta como sua vida, suas meias-verdades são reveladas totalmente — a não ser que ela aprenda a dizer a verdade sobre o que realmente importa. Lucy Silchester tem um compromisso com sua vida — e ela terá de cumpri-lo.

Originally published in 1942 under the title Minha Vida de Menina—Portuguese meaning “My Life as a Little Girl or “Young Girl”—this book is a diary that was kept by the author, Helena Morley (pseudonym of Alice Dayrell Caldeira Brant), when she was between the ages of twelve and fifteen (1893-1895), and living in Diamantina, a small diamond mining town in southeastern Brazil. The little girl describes her homework, her love of parades and dresses, her father who could scarcely make a living in the mines, and her most beloved grandmother. The diary was admired by French Novelist Georges Bernanos, and in 1957, award-winning American poet and writer Elizabeth Bishop, then resident in Brazil, translated it into English as The Diary of Helena Morley. “The more I read the book [Minha Vida de Menina ]the better I liked it. The scenes and events it described were odd, remote, and long ago, and yet fresh, sad, funny, and eternally true. The longer I stayed on in Brazil the more Brazilian the book seemed, yet much of it could have happened in any small provincial town or village, and at almost any period of history—at least before the arrival of the automobile and the moving-picture theatre.”—Elizabeth Bishop

The polarizing literary debut by Scottish author Ian Banks, The Wasp Factory is the bizarre, imaginative, disturbing, and darkly comic look into the mind of a child psychopath. Meet Frank Cauldhame. Just sixteen, and unconventional to say the least: Two years after I killed Blyth I murdered my young brother Paul, for quite different and more fundamental reasons than I'd disposed of Blyth, and then a year after that I did for my young cousin Esmerelda, more or less on a whim. That's my score to date. Three. I haven't killed anybody for years, and don't intend to ever again. It was just a stage I was going through.

From one of Granta’s Best Young British Novelists, a stunningly insightful, emotionally powerful new novel about an outsider haunted by an inescapable past: a story of loneliness and survival, guilt and loss, and the power of forgiveness. Jake Whyte is living on her own in an old farmhouse on a craggy British island, a place of ceaseless rain and battering wind. Her disobedient collie, Dog, and a flock of sheep are her sole companions, which is how she wants it to be. But every few nights something—or someone—picks off one of the sheep and sounds a new deep pulse of terror. There are foxes in the woods, a strange boy and a strange man, and rumors of an obscure, formidable beast. And there is also Jake’s past, hidden thousands of miles away and years ago, held in the silences about her family and the scars that stripe her back—a past that threatens to break into the present. With exceptional artistry and empathy, All the Birds, Singing reveals an isolated life in all its struggles and stubborn hopes, unexpected beauty, and hard-won redemption. This eBook edition includes a Reading Group Guide.

# Mesma autora dos sucessos P.S Eu te Amo, Simplesmente Acontece, A Vez da minha Vida, O Livro do Amanhã e O Presente. Cem nomes. Uma promessa. Todo mundo tem uma história. Quando a jornalista Kitty Logan comete o pior erro de sua carreira, as repercussões criam um caos em torno da sua vida. Uma ação judicial, a perda de seu programa na TV e do emprego na revista Etcetera comprometem gravemente a sua carreira. Kitty tem 32 anos e aos poucos está perdendo tudo o que conquistou: sua vida profissional está arruinada; seu namorado a deixou sem um motivo aparente; sua melhor amiga está decepcionada com ela; e o principal: sua confidente e mentora está gravemente doente. Constance, a mulher que ensinou a Kitty tudo o que sabia, está morrendo, mas não antes que Kitty possa perguntar a ela: "Qual é a matéria que você sempre quis escrever?". A resposta está em uma simples folha de papel guardada no escritório de Constance: uma lista com cem nomes – nada mais, nenhum tipo de explicação. Antes que Kitty consiga falar com sua amiga, é tarde demais. Decidida a solucionar o mistério e a reconstruir sua autoconfiança, Kitty mergulha na investigação, seguindo o rastro de cada um dos nomes da lista e descobrindo as ligações entre eles. À medida que conhece aquelas pessoas comuns e suas histórias, Kitty começa a traçar um inesperado retrato da vida de Constance... e começa, também, a compreender melhor a história da sua própria vida. A Lista é uma história encantadora sobre as chances de felicidade que desprezamos todos os dias e vai convencer o leitor de que todo mundo tem algo de extraordinário para compartilhar. Uma mensagem preciosa, embalada em uma história divertida e emocionante. "Mais uma vez, Cecelia tece uma teia encantadora sobre redenção e amor." – Kirkus Reviews
