By sixth grade Miranda and her best friend, Sal, know how to navigate their New York City neighborhood. But things start to unravel. Sal gets punched by a kid on the street, the apartment key that Miranda's mom keeps hidden for emergencies is stolen. Then a mysterious note arrives. The notes keep coming, and Miranda realizes that whoever is leaving them knows things no one should. Each message brings her closer to believing that only she can prevent a tragic death. Until the final note makes her think she's too late."Like A Wrinkle in Time (Miranda's favorite book), When You Reach Me far surpasses the usual whodunit or sci-fi adventure to become an incandescent exploration of 'life, death, and the beauty of it all.'" -The Washington Post This Newbery Medal winner that has been called "smart and mesmerizing," (The New York Times) and "superb" (The Wall Street Journal) will appeal to readers of all types, especially those who are looking for a thought-provoking mystery with a mind-blowing twist. Shortly after a fall-out with her best friend, sixth grader Miranda starts receiving mysterious notes, and she doesn't know what to do. The notes tell her that she must write a letter-a true story, and that she can't share her mission with anyone. It would be easy to ignore the strange messages, except that whoever is leaving them has an uncanny ability to predict the future. If that is the case, then Miranda has a big problem-because the notes tell her that someone is going to die, and she might be too late to stop it. Winner of the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award for Fiction A New York Times Bestseller and Notable Book Five Starred Reviews A Junior Library Guild Selection "Absorbing." -People "Readers ... are likely to find themselves chewing over the details of this superb and intricate tale long afterward." -The Wall Street Journal "Lovely and almost impossibly clever." -The Philadelphia Inquirer "It's easy to imagine readers studying Miranda's story as many times as she's read L'Engle's, and spending hours pondering the provocative questions it raises." -Publishers Weekly, Starred review

#1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie Moning picks up where Shadowfever leaves off with Iced, the sixth book in her blockbuster Fever series. The year is 1 AWC-After the Wall Crash. The Fae are free and hunting us. It's a war zone out there, and no two days are alike. I'm Dani O'Malley, the chaos-filled streets of Dublin are my home, and there's no place I'd rather be. Dani "Mega" O'Malley plays by her own set of rules-and in a world overrun by Dark Fae, her biggest rule is: Do what it takes to survive. Possessing rare talents and the all-powerful Sword of Light, Dani is more than equipped for the task. In fact, she's one of the rare humans who can defend themselves against the Unseelie. But now, amid the pandemonium, her greatest gifts have turned into serious liabilities. Dani's ex-best friend, MacKayla Lane, wants her dead, the terrifying Unseelie princes have put a price on her head, and Inspector Jayne, the head of the police force, is after her sword and will stop at nothing to get it. What's more, people are being mysteriously frozen to death all over the city, encased on the spot in sub-zero, icy tableaux. When Dublin's most seductive nightclub gets blanketed in hoarfrost, Dani finds herself at the mercy of Ryodan, the club's ruthless, immortal owner. He needs her quick wit and exceptional skill to figure out what's freezing Fae and humans dead in their tracks-and Ryodan will do anything to ensure her compliance. Dodging bullets, fangs, and fists, Dani must strike treacherous bargains and make desperate alliances to save her beloved Dublin-before everything and everyone in it gets iced. Look for all of Karen Marie Moning's sensational Fever novels: DARKFEVER BLOODFEVER FAEFEVER DREAMFEVER SHADOWFEVER ICED BURNED FEVERBORN FEVERSONG Praise for Iced "Moning returns to the heady world of her Fever series, and the results are addictive and consistently surprising. . . . The best elements of Moning's sensual, shadowy epic are still here, from the sensual and enigmatic Fae to the super-alpha heroes and the breathless pace of their escalating conflicts. At its heart is a heroine whose development is likely to become the stuff of legends as this unforgettable, haunting series continues to evolve."-RT Book Reviews "This is one of my favorite 2012 reads . . . It's engaging, hilarious, amazing and Dani is going to be one heck of a woman."-USA Today "A gripping story that combines excellent storytelling with believable characters that are rendered both superhuman and superbly human, with emotional fragility and psychological vulnerability in an unstable world fraught with danger . . . Fast-paced, with nonstop action set in a fascinating urban fantasy world of Dublin under siege, this is a smart, bold and textured success."─Kirkus Reviews "Moning is a master storyteller. I don't know how she does it, but she begs me to get on my knees and pay worship to the woman who has brought me the best, most labyrinthine stories and characters I've ever had the privilege to get to know. She weaves brilliantly, unapologetically, and without exception, and she has threaded the needle into me and I've been pulled, over and over, into her tapestry, and I don't think I'm ever getting out. Iced is no exception."-The Bawdy Book Blog (five-starred review)

Four mysterious letters change Miranda's world forever..... By sixth grade, Miranda and her best friend, Sal, know how to navigate their New York City neighborhood. They know where it's safe to go, like the local grocery store, and they know whom to avoid, like the crazy guy on the corner. But things start to unravel. Sal gets punched by a new kid for what seems like no reason, and he shuts Miranda out of his life. The apartment key that Miranda's mom keeps hidden for emergencies is stolen. And then Miranda finds a mysterious note scrawled on a tiny slip of paper: I am coming to save your friend's life, and my own. I must ask two favors. First, you must write me a letter. The notes keep coming, and Miranda slowly realizes that whoever is leaving them knows all about her, including things that have not even happened yet. Each message brings her closer to believing that only she can prevent a tragic death - until the final note makes her think she's too late. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cynthia Holloway.

Vietnam vet, award-winning audiobook narrator and producer Mike Vendetti reads Sun Tzu's The Art of War taken from, The Book of War: The Military Classic of the Far East, by Sun Tzu (active sixth-century BCE) and Wu Tzu, translated by Everard Ferguson Calthrop. Written in the fifth century BCE, by Sun Tzu and Wu Tzu, it remains one of the most celebrated works on war in the literature of China. While the chariot is gone and weapons have changed, these ancient masters have held their own. Since they deal chiefly with the fundamental principles of war, with the influence of politics and human nature on military operations, they show most strikingly how unchanging these principles are. Note from the narrator: When I was deployed to Vietnam with the 1st Infantry Division in 1965, we were hungry for information about how to fight the enemy. As I narrated this audiobook, it became evident to me that our enemy followed the rules Sun laid out nearly 3000 years ago while we ignored or were unaware of them. I couldn't help but think of a scene in the film, We Were Soldiers, where the LT and his platoon chased an enemy combatant into the jungle. He was one of my classmates at Infantry OCS. That mistake cost him his life that day. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mike Vendetti. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/mike/002957/bk_mike_002957_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
