From the highly acclaimed, best-selling National Book Award finalist and author of A Short History of Women, a searing and timely novel about a teenage girl, a charismatic teacher, and a dark, open secret. They were on a lark, three teenage girls speeding across the greens on a ´´borrowed” golf cart, at night, drunk. The cart crashes and one of the girls lands violently in the rough, killed instantly. The driver, Jo, flees the hometown that has turned against her and enrolls at a prestigious boarding school. Her past weighs on her. She is responsible for the death of her best friend. She has tipped her parents’ rocky marriage into demise. She is ready to begin again, far away from the accident. Taut, propulsive and devastating, His Favorites reveals the interior life of a young woman determined to navigate the treachery in a new world. Told from her perspective many years later, the story cooly describes a series of shattering events and the system that failed to protect her. Walbert, who brilliantly explored a century of women’s struggles for rights and recognition in her award-winning A Short History of Women, limns the all-too-common violations of vulnerability and aspiration in the lives of young women in this suspenseful short novel. From the publisher of the classic A Separate Peace, His Favorites is an urgent book by a ´´wickedly smart writer” (The New York Times Book Review) whose work is ´´fascinating, moving and significant” (The Washington Post). 1.

Scott Joplin´s Ragtime Favorites for Strings as performed by Zinn´s Ragtime String Quartet. Published for first violin, second violin viola, cello, string bass (optional), score and piano accompaniment.
Five years have passed since Angie Favorite’s mother, Laura, disappeared without a trace, and Angie still hasn’t recovered. Sure, things look normal on the surface — she goes to school, works her summer job, and argues with her older brother Jason — but she can’t shake the feeling her mother didn’t leave by choice. Angie’s dad does the best he can, but his work as a musician keeps him on the road and away from home, where it’s up to Angie’s grandmother to keep an eye on the kids. She can’t be with them all the time, though, and so Angie is alone when she’s snatched from a strip mall parking lot by Scott Bittner. Angie narrowly escapes, and Bittner is arrested, but he takes his life in jail before he can offer an explanation for his crime. When his mother makes contact, begging forgiveness on her son’s behalf, Angie agrees to meet with her in hopes of finding answers to the seemingly random attack. But when she arrives at the massive Bittner estate, she is overcome by an unshakeable sense of foreboding… Part thriller, part coming-of-age tale, Favorite is an engrossing young adult novel in which nothing — and no one — is as it seems. 1.

A Favorite Son is a modern twist on an old tale: Jacob and his mother are plotting together against the elderly father Isaac, who is lying on his deathbed. They wish to get their hands on the inheritance and take control of the power in the family. Jacob yearns to become the favorite son, but sees only one way to achieve it: deceit. In planning his deception, it is not love for his father, nor respect for his age that drives his hesitation--rather, it is the fear to be found out. And so, pretending to be that which he is not--he is now ready for the last moment he is going to have with his father. This is no old fairy tale. Its power is here and now, in each one of us. 1.
