She is born Alexis Marie O'Connor, on October 30, 1978 to the proud parents of Francis Michael and Corvette Michelle Layden O'Connor in New York, and she grows up in an attractive two story house that sits on the beach facing the Atlantic Ocean. As does any other child, she attends kindergarten but her life begins developing when she attends Notre Dame Preparatory School for Girls beginning in the Spring of 1990. It is here that she begins meeting girls just like her, but Alexis is very home bodied, that is, she isn't allowed to attend many parties as her parents have spoiled her to an extent that she relies heavily on them for nearly everything, and yet she does not do the things that can bring shame and embarrassment to them. Her best friend in high school is Janelle Dade-Wexler who is like a sister to her and they experience many things including boys, but they do not let the boys "experience" them and Alexis' mother sees to that and is much like a mother to Janelle as she is constantly at Alexis' house.

Before 1968, astrology as we know it had a very limited following in the United States and around the world. It was the 1968 publication of Linda Goodman's Sun Signs that changed that forever. Newspapers began running astrology columns, and Goodman herself contributed insert pieces to the larger mass circulation women's magazines. An increasingly larger number of people knew their sign (as well as yours) and began to study astrological tendencies. Since its publication, Linda Goodman's Sun Signs quickly established itself as the worldwide introductory bible to astrology for beginner and expert alike. The book's simple organizational technique made it easy for everyone to follow and understand, organized sign-by-sign, the Man, Woman, Child, Boss, and Employee. This edition of Goodman's groundbreaking work has been fully updated to make the references to people in it current, and her magical first-person prose has been preserved, keeping the book's original punch.

Humpty Dumpty is humiliated. All the King's Horses and All the King's Men make fun of him and his embarrassing fall every chance they get. So Humpty Dumpty holes up in his home, determined to never climb another wall. Until a friend needs his help. In this silly play on traditional nursery rhymes Humpty is given the chance to show that the best thing to do after you fall off the horse (or wall, in this case) is to get right back on. "Illustrated with big, clear, line-and-watercolor cartoons, Horowitz's simple rhyming text is both a parody of nursery rhymes and a fun story. Children will enjoy the puns and the play with the Mother Goose verses that they know." - Booklist

ONE OF PUBLISHERS WEEKLY'S TEN MOST ANTICIPATED MEMOIRS OF THE SEASON IF YOU THINK IT SUCKS TO LIVE WITH YOUR PARENTS WHEN YOU’RE THIRTY-SIX AND NINE MONTHS PREGNANT, JUST WAIT TILL THE DEA COMES KNOCKING (WITH THE IRS IN TOW): WELCOME TO VICTORIA FEDDEN’S LIFE. When a squad of federal agents burst through her parents’ front door, Victoria Fedden felt ill-prepared to meet them: She was weeks away from her due date and her T-shirt wasn’t long enough to hide her maternity undies. As for the question of how to raise a child when you’ve just discovered that your mother and stepfather have allegedly masterminded a pump-and-dump scheme? She was pretty sure that wasn’t covered in What to Expect When You’re Expecting—and she really hoped that Bradford Cohen, the noted criminal defense attorney who famously waived his exemption on The Apprentice, would prove them innocent. This Is Not My Beautiful Life is the story of how Victoria lost her parents to prison and nearly lost her mind. No one ever said motherhood would be easy, but as she struggles to change diapers, install car seats, and find the right drop-off line at pre-school—no easy task, when each one is named for a stage in the lifecycle of a f*cking butterfly—she’s also forced to ask herself whether a jump-suit might actually complement her mom’s platinum-blonde extensions and fend off the cast of shady, stranger-than-fiction characters (like the recovering addict who scored a reality show when he started an escort service for women) who populated her parents’ world. A real-life Arrested Development that could only unfold in southern Florida, This Is Not My Beautiful Life is a hilariously funny and unexpectedly moving memoir of a just-functional family you’ll never forget.

This Star Wont Go Out
Author: Esther Earl
Publisher: Noura Books
Esther menginspirasi The Fault in Our Stars dalam arti dia membantuku membayangkan remaja memiliki lebih banyak empati daripada dugaanku sebelumnya, dan pesona serta kejenakaannya menginspirasi novel ini juga. Namun, karakter Hazel sangat berbeda dari Esther, dan kisah Hazel bukanlah kisah Esther. Kisah Esther sepenuhnya miliknya, dan untungnya dia adalah penulis yang menakjubkan, dan buku ini akan menggambarkannya secara apik.-John Green Ini bukan tentang penyakit kanker dramatis, seperti buku "berdasarkan kisah nyata" pada umumnya. Kisah ini mengenai aku, Esther Earl, yang mengidap penyakit yang cukup menakutkan bernama Kanker Tiroid. Namun, bahkan lebih dari itu, kisah ini adalah tentang pengalaman yang mengubah hidup seorang gadis. [Mizan, Noura Books, The Fault, Sakit, Kanker, Hidup, Novel, Terjemahan, Indonesia]

Author: Em Bailey
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Esther is one of the Special Ones: four young spiritual guides who live in a remote farmhouse under the protection of a mysterious cult leader. He watches them around the clock, ready to punish them if they forget who they are—and all the while, broadcasting their lives to eager followers on the outside. Esther knows that if she stops being Special, he will “renew” her. Nobody knows what happens to the Special Ones who are taken away from the farm for renewal, but Esther fears the worst. Like an actor caught up in an endless play, she must keep up the performance if she wants to survive long enough to escape.
