              Teenager Raven Baxter has a special talent: she frequently gets spotty visions of the future, seeing brief glimpses of what could or will come to pass. This collection includes the first three books in the That's So Raven series. That's So Raven #1: What You See Is What You Get W...hen Raven gets paired up with Ben Stinky Sturky for a science class project, she shudders with fear (and disgust)! He is, after all, the King of Stink. Desperate, Raven tries to entice some of the other students into being Ben's partner, but no one falls for her bribes. So she begs her teacher to assign her a different partner. Then, all of a sudden, Raven gets a Grade A vision--could it mean she's supposed to be Stinky's partner? Will Raven be able to stick out the stench, or will she crumble under the power of second-hand stink? That's So Raven #2: Rescue Me Raven is totally psyched about her date with an older boy. He's cute AND he drives! So what if her parents don't approve? She's got her two best friends, Chelsea and Eddie, on her side to help keep it all on the down low. But the date goes horribly wrong when Mr. Hottie turns out to be Mr. Not-tie. Who knew high-school guys chew with their mouths open--yuck! Raven definitely didn't see this one coming! Can she escape the world's worst date and return home unnoticed, or will she get busted by Mom and Dad? That's So Raven #3: In Raven We Trust Eddie made starting guard on the basketball team and feels like he's sittin' on top of the world--until Raven gets a vision of him getting an F on his Spanish midterm. If this comes true, he's off the team! So when Eddie finds out Raven also saw the answers to the test in her vision, he begs her to help him. What else are psychic friends for, right? Raven finally gives in, but soon realizes she gave Eddie the wrong answers! Will she and Chelsea be able to warn Eddie in time, or will he fail the midterm and get kicked off the team for good?

              In a searing historical novel, Tonya Bolden illuminates post-Reconstruction America in an intimate portrait of a determined young woman who dares to seize the opportunity of a lifetime. As a young black woman in 1880s Savannah, Essie's dreams are very much at odds with her realit...y. Ashamed of her beginnings, but unwilling to accept the path currently available to her, Essie is trapped between the life she has and the life she wants. Until she meets a lady named Dorcas Vashon, the richest and most cultured black woman she's ever encountered. When Dorcas makes Essie an offer she can't refuse, she becomes Victoria. Transformed by a fine wardrobe, a classic education and the rules of etiquette, Victoria is soon welcomed in the upper echelons of black society in Washington, DC. But when the life she desires is finally within her grasp, Victoria must decide how much of herself she is truly willing to surrender.

              Juno Rushdan is the real deal. Every Last Breath is an electric combination of heart-stopping thriller and swoon-worthy romance. (Lexi Blake, New York Times best-selling author) 48 hours Two covert operatives One chance to get it right Maddox Kinkade is an expert at managing the ...impossible. Tasked with neutralizing a lethal bioweapon, she turns to the one person capable of helping her stop the threat of pandemic in time: the love of her life, back from the dead and mad as hell at her supposed betrayal. Recruiting Cole to save millions of lives may be harder than resisting the attraction still burning between them, but Maddox will do whatever it takes...even if it destroys her. When Maddox crashes back into Cole Matthews' life, he wants to fight back. He wants to hate her. But the crisis is too strong to ignore, and soon the two former lovers find themselves working side-by-side in a breakneck race to stop a world-class killer with a secret that could end everything. The clock is ticking.

              Set in the summer of 1968, a provocative and devastating novel of individual lives caught in the grips of violent history-a timely and poignant story that reverberates with the power of Alice Walker's Meridianand Ntozake Shange's Betsey Browne. At the end of a sweltering summer s...haped by the tragic assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr., and Bobby Kennedy, race riots, political protests, and the birth of Black power, three coeds from New York City-Zelda Livingston, Veronica Cook, and Daphne Brooks-pack into Veronica's new Ford Fairlane convertible, bound for Atlanta and their last year at Spelman College. It is the beginning a journey that will change their lives irrevocably. Unlikely friends from vastly different backgrounds, the trio has been inseparable since freshman year. Zelda, serious and unyielding, the heir of rebellious slaves and freedom riders, sees the world in black versus white. Veronica, the privileged daughter of a refined, wealthy family, strongly believes in integration and racial uplift. Daphne lives with a legacy of loss-when she was five years old, her black mother committed suicide and her white father abandoned her. Because they will be going their separate ways after graduation, Zelda, Veronica, and Daphne intend to make lasting memories on this special trip. Though they are young and carefree, they aren't foolish. Joined by Veronica's family friend Daniel, they rely on the Motorist Green Book to find racially friendly locations for gas, rest, and food. Still, with the sun on their cheeks, the wind in their hair, and Motown on the radio, the girls revel in their freedom. Yet as the miles fly by, taking them closer to the Mason-Dixon line, tension begins to rise and the conversation turns serious when Daphne shares a horrifying secret about her life. When they hit Washington, D.C., the joyous trip turns dark. In Virginia they barely escape a desperate situation when prison guards mistake Daniel for an escapee. Further south they barely mak
