Rose Feller is thirty years old, a high-powered attorney, with a secret passion for romance novels, an exercise regime she's going to start next week, and dreams of a man who will slide off her glasses, gaze into her eyes, and tell her that she's beautiful. Meet Rose's sister Maggie. Twenty-eight years old, drop-dead gorgeous and only occasionally employed, Maggie is a backing singer in a band called Whiskered Biscuit. She dreams of fame and fortune -- and of getting her dowdy big sister to stick to a skin-care regime. These two women with nothing in common but a childhood tragedy, shared DNA, and the same size feet, are about to learn that their family is more different than they ever imagined, and that they're more alike than they'd ever believe. The brilliant new novel by Jennifer Weiner, Who Do You Love, will be released in August 2015.

A juicy true story about sex, drugs, money, power, high heels, and overcoming adversity. Tamara Mellon used her business savvy, creative eye, and flair for design to build Jimmy Choo into a premier name in global fashion. But despite her eventual fame and fortune, Mellon didn’t have an easy road to success. Her seemingly glamorous beginnings were marked by a tumultuous family life, battles with anxiety and depression, and a stint in rehab. Now Mellon shares the whole larger-thanlife story—from her time as a young editor at Vogue to her partnership with cobbler Jimmy Choo to her very public relationships. In creating the shoes that became a fixture on Sex and the City and red carpets around the world, Mellon relied on her own impeccable sense of what her customers wanted. What she didn’t know at the time was that success would come at a high price: struggles with an obstinate business partner, a conniving first CEO, a turbulent marriage, and a mother who tried to steal her hard-earned wealth.

It's a story about balancing competition with compassion, about focusing on individual goals without losing sight of life's bigger picture, and realizing the great influences that can be made by people who would rarely be considered great. A modern twist on the classic underdog, it's high school track meets Rocky...or Rudy. Rae had lived a tumultuous young life. Having lost both parents by the age of eleven, she was sent to live with her Uncle Joe. Joe was both polarizing and unfiltered, but under his guidance, Rae found solid footing, not just in life, but also on the track, where she had become a captain and a standout miler for the Morris High School track team. As Morris' head track coach, Joe was as unconventional as he was successful. Not only had he won dozens of team titles, at some point throughout his career, he'd coached a state champion in every event...except the mile. Rae was determined to win it for him, during this, her senior season. Rae's single-minded approach was thrown for a loop when Izzy showed up at Morris. As a student with autism, joining the track team could be Izzy's path to inclusion. Rae wanted to take the new girl under her wing, but Joe was against it, knowing the distraction would affect Rae's training and her pursuit of her own personal glory. What transpired was a season full of laughter and tears, triumph and heartbreak, reminding us all that in life's great race, the winner isn't always determined by a stopwatch.

But all the kids are wearing them! Any child who has ever craved something out of reach will relate to this warm, refreshingly realistic story. Features an audio read-along. "I have dreams about those shoes. Black high-tops. Two white stripes." All Jeremy wants is a pair of those shoes, the ones everyone at school seems to be wearing. But Jeremy’s grandma tells him they don’t have room for "want," just "need," and what Jeremy needs are new boots for winter. When Jeremy’s shoes fall apart at school, and the guidance counselor gives him a hand-me-down pair, the boy is more determined than ever to have those shoes, even a thrift-shop pair that are much too small. But sore feet aren’t much fun, and Jeremy comes to realize that the things he has -- warm boots, a loving grandma, and the chance to help a friend -- are worth more than the things he wants.

There was once a poor little girl called Karen. In summer, she walked barefoot and in winter, she wore clogs that hurt her feet. She had no choice, it was all she had. Dame Shoemaker wanted to help her and sewed, as best she could, a pair of red shoes. When she wore them for the first time, Karen’s life took an unexpected turn. Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) was a Danish author, poet and artist. Celebrated for children’s literature, his most cherished fairy tales include "The Emperor's New Clothes", "The Little Mermaid", "The Nightingale", "The Steadfast Tin Soldier", "The Snow Queen", "The Ugly Duckling" and "The Little Match Girl". His books have been translated into every living language, and today there is no child or adult that has not met Andersen's whimsical characters. His fairy tales have been adapted to stage and screen countless times, most notably by Disney with the animated films "The Little Mermaid" in 1989 and "Frozen", which is loosely based on "The Snow Queen", in 2013. Thanks to Andersen's contribution to children's literature, his birth date, April 2, is celebrated as International Children's Book Day.
