一連串懸而未決的制咒師謀殺和盜竊案,已不再是艾兒希等人關切的重點。所有罪行的罪魁禍首已呼之欲出,然而,要成功舉發對方,就意味著艾兒希非法的破咒師身分必須曝光,而拒絕與對方合作的代價更高—她被關進了監獄,而幕後黑手也消失無蹤。 巴克斯突破禁制後,自身的法力快速成長,晉升成為法師。面對艾兒希的牢獄之災與日漸增生的情感,他只有兩條路可走:助她取得合法身分,或者眼睜睜看她踏上絞刑台。 同時,先前找上艾兒希的美國人,在這一切之中扮演了何種角色?對方所指的報紙文章,上面奇怪、毫無邏輯的文字背後,又有什麼訊息隱藏其中?而神祕現身的訪客將帶來何種顛覆性的真相? 這名英國最狡詐難纏的犯罪者,不斷誘使巴克斯和艾兒希走向黑暗的一面,兩人的關係更成為致命束縛。而當命運的交會來臨時,他們能否及時做好準備,迎接膠著不明的未來?

每個人身上都背負著很多期望,承受各種人的眼光,但更重要的是,無論順境或逆境,都不要忘記讓自己充滿鬥志的目標與信念!蔣萬安也一樣。別人看著一路順遂,出國唸名校、以新手之姿當選立委,但是他從不避談在異國落榜、失業的打擊。失敗,給他難得的養分與更多的勇氣,還有一路相挺的夥伴。不斷開創,努力拚戰的每一步,才是人生中真正的印記與前進的力量!   蔣萬安,從小在台北成長。你可能聽過他赴美攻讀法律博士,成為矽谷新創律師;為了一個帶動改變的機會,選擇跳脫舒適圈、參選立法委員,勇敢成為關鍵少數、為正確的事發聲。即使備受質疑,他仍堅持「面對歷史、還原真相」,還給政治受難者一個公道。   但是你可能不知道,蔣萬安雖然在求學路上表現傑出,卻是班上永遠的第二名;正因為知道自己不是天才,他把一百多位立委的質詢影片全部看過一遍,才學會怎麼問政。他在求職路上積極進取,卻無預警地被公司裁員;正因為感受過失業的痛苦,他堅守立場、維護勞工權益,成為新一代立院「站神」。   在這本書,蔣萬安坦白分享他「很ㄍㄧㄥ」的形象背後你不知道的蔣萬安。 他是追劇迷弟,因為看《洛城法網》,變成美國執業律師。 他告白失利,因為忘記換氣,游泳比賽第一卻被取消奪金資格。 他的律師性格,無論是被忽略的小眾所需,或是被漠視的大眾所求,都可以透過制定法律來爭取應有的保障和權益。   這本書,也有一路看著蔣萬安成長、蛻變的夥伴對他的近身觀察,看他近乎頑固的堅持,希望為城市做出一些改變,有更大的空間容納不分年紀、不分國籍、不分產業的多元族群,找回創新和活力。

Precise, lyrical writing presents topics including: forced assimilation (such as boarding schools), land allotment and Native tribal reorganization, termination (the US government not recognizing tribes as nations), Native urban relocation (from reservations), self-determination (tribal self-empowerment), Native civil rights, the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA), religious freedom, economic development (including casino development), Native language revival efforts, cultural persistence, and nationhood.

A grieving boy remembers his grandfather and the hobby they shared, in this moving evocation of love and loss by a Newbery Medalist. Milo's grandfather is fascinated by birds. He admires their freedom and never loses an opportunity to point out the things that make each one special. When he can no longer see as well as he used to, Milo helps him spot and take care of some of his favorites: hovering kestrels, fragile chickadees, and the bald eagle soaring high overhead. One day when Milo comes home, Grandpa isn't there. But when the boy sees an eagle swooping through the sky above, he knows Grandpa is still with them: reborn in the skies, just as he'd wanted. This honest, reflective, and deeply moving portrait of grief offers young readers comfort and hope in difficult times. When Grandfather Flew celebrates the close, beautiful relationships between children and grandparents, and the unique ways we keep lost loved ones close. With a lyrical text by acclaimed author Patricia MacLachlan and vivid, textural artwork by Chris Sheban, this wistful story will resonate with anyone who has felt the loss of a loved one-- and will remind you to look for the reminders of the love you shared.

After being rescued as infants from a sinking ocean liner in 1914, Marian and Jamie Graves are raised by their dissolute uncle in Missoula, Montana. There--after encountering a pair of barnstorming pilots passing through town in beat-up biplanes--Marian commences her lifelong love affair with flight. At fourteen she drops out of school and finds an unexpected and dangerous patron in a wealthy bootlegger who provides a plane and subsidizes her lessons, an arrangement that will haunt her for the rest of her life, even as it allows her to fulfill her destiny: circumnavigating the globe by flying over the North and South Poles. A century later, Hadley Baxter is cast to play Marian in a film that centers on Marian's disappearance in Antarctica. Vibrant, canny, disgusted with the claustrophobia of Hollywood, Hadley is eager to redefine herself after a romantic film franchise has imprisoned her in the grip of cult celebrity. Her immersion into the character of Marian unfolds, thrillingly, alongside Marian's own story, as the two women's fates--and their hunger for self-determination in vastly different geographies and times--collide. Epic and emotional, meticulously researched and gloriously told, Great Circle is a monumental work of art, and a tremendous leap forward for the prodigiously gifted Maggie Shipstead.

With Dalia's future stepsister Alexa heading back to college soon, the grown-ups want the girls to spend the last weeks of summer bonding--meaning Alexa has to cancel the amusement park road trip she's been planning for months. Luckily Dalia comes up with a new plan: If she joins Alexa on her trip and brings Rani, the new girl from her swim team, along maybe she can have the perfect summer after all. But what starts out as a week of funnel cakes and Lazy River rides goes off the rails when Dalia discovers that Alexa's girlfriend is joining the trip. And keeping Alexa's secret makes Dalia realize one of her own: She might have more-than-friend feelings for Rani.

The bestselling author of Give and Take and Originals examines the critical art of rethinking: learning to question your opinions and open other people's minds, which can position you for excellence at work and wisdom in life Intelligence is usually seen as the ability to think and learn, but in a rapidly changing world, there's another set of cognitive skills that might matter more: the ability to rethink and unlearn. In our daily lives, too many of us favor the comfort of conviction over the discomfort of doubt. We listen to opinions that make us feel good, instead of ideas that make us think hard. We see disagreement as a threat to our egos, rather than an opportunity to learn. We surround ourselves with people who agree with our conclusions, when we should be gravitating toward those who challenge our thought process. The result is that our beliefs get brittle long before our bones. We think too much like preachers defending our sacred beliefs, prosecutors proving the other side wrong, and politicians campaigning for approval--and too little like scientists searching for truth. Intelligence is no cure, and it can even be a curse: being good at thinking can make us worse at rethinking. The brighter we are, the blinder to our own limitations we can become. Organizational psychologist Adam Grant is an expert on opening other people's minds--and our own. As Wharton's top-rated professor and the bestselling author of Originals and Give and Take, he makes it one of his guiding principles to argue like he's right but listen like he's wrong. With bold ideas and rigorous evidence, he investigates how we can embrace the joy of being wrong, bring nuance to charged conversations, and build schools, workplaces, and communities of lifelong learners. You'll learn how an international debate champion wins arguments, a Black musician persuades white supremacists to abandon hate, a vaccine whisperer convinces concerned parents to immunize their children, and Adam has coaxed Yankees fans to root for the Red Sox. Think Again reveals that we don't have to believe everything we think or internalize everything we feel. It's an invitation to let go of views that are no longer serving us well and prize mental flexibility over foolish consistency. If knowledge is power, knowing what we don't know is wisdom.
