To Sir With Love

This classic schoolroom drama of a black teacher in London’s tough East End who triumphs over bigotry and ignorance to change the lives of his students forever was hailed by the New York Times as “a book that the reader devours quickly, ponders slowly, and forgets not at all”
With opportunities for black men limited in post–World War II London, Rick Braithwaite, a former Royal Air Force pilot and Cambridge-educated engineer, accepts a teaching position that puts him in charge of a class of angry, unmotivated, bigoted white teenagers whom the system has mostly abandoned. When his efforts to reach these troubled students are met with threats, suspicion, and derision, Braithwaite takes a radical new approach. He will treat his students as people poised to enter the adult world. He will teach them to respect themselves and to call him “Sir.” He will open up vistas before them that they never knew existed. And over the course of a remarkable year, he will touch the lives of his students in extraordinary ways, even as they in turn, unexpectedly and profoundly, touch his.
Based on actual events in the author’s life, To Sir, With Love is a powerfully moving story that celebrates courage, commitment, and vision, and is the inspiration for the classic film starring Sidney Poitier.
 

Maria

María, novela romántica del escritor Colombiano Jorge Isaacs, describe la vida de una familia, cuyas tradiciones tienen fuertes raíces, reflejando la cultura e idiosincrasia del tiempo en que se escribió. Trata de que un joven llamado Efraín, se enamore de su compañera de juegos, María, que vive acogida en casa de los padres de Efraín y convive, por tanto, con él. El padre del joven no se opone a los amoríos en germen, pero, dado que ambos son muy jóvenes aún, quiere ver qué rumbo siguen los síntomas de epilepsia que presenta la joven, heredados de su fallecida madre, y decide que el muchacho se yaya a Europa a estudiar medicina. Las escenas campestres entre ambos jóvenes son mucho mejores que el resto de la novela; los amaneceres, las puestas de sol, las descripciones del paisaje, los detalles líricos y emotivos, todo está pintado de mano maestra y resulta sencillo y claro, vigoroso y plástico. Antes de abandonar Efraín el continente americano, ha prometido a María amor eterno. Pero la joven se agrava en su enfermedad por la ausencia de su prometido, quien es llamado con extrema urgencia.

Carnal Thirst

MISLED
Special Task Force agent Derek Atkinson has a craving for luscious vampire Sable Taylor. But Sable's a bounty hunter, which makes him direct competition in the capture of wanted criminals.

So he's got a plan to give them both what they want... each other.

When he traps her on his ship, she decides to indulge. Two straight days of mind-blowing sex should be enough, but it isn't, not for either of them. Her heart is involved now, but Sable can't let Derek get too close. If he finds out what she's doing, he'll never forgive her.

Derek, however, refuses to let go. Now he's getting shot at and asking questions she shouldn't answer. Sable has to reveal the truth... Derek's love has been misled...

Brave New World

A towering classic of dystopian satire, BRAVE NEW WORLD""is a brilliant and terrifying vision of a soulless society--and of one man who discovers the human costs of mindless conformity.
Hundreds of years in the future, the World Controllers have created an ideal civilization. Its members, shaped by genetic engineering and behavioral conditioning, are productive and content in roles they have been assigned at conception. Government-sanctioned drugs and recreational sex ensure that everyone is a happy, unquestioning consumer; messy emotions have been anesthetized and private attachments are considered obscene. Only Bernard Marx is discontented, developing an unnatural desire for solitude and a distaste for compulsory promiscuity. When he brings back a young man from one of the few remaining Savage Reservations, where the old unenlightened ways still continue, he unleashes a dramatic clash of cultures that will force him to consider whether freedom, dignity, and individuality are worth suffering for.
Aldous Huxley's ingenious fantasy of a future of mechanical efficiency and engineered harmony has been enormously influential for generations, and is as provocative, powerful, and riveting as when it was first published in 1932.

Lady Midnight

`The Shadowhunters of Los Angeles star in the first novel in Cassandra Clare’s newest series, The Dark Artifices, a sequel to the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series. Lady Midnight is a Shadowhunters novel.

It’s been five years since the events of City of Heavenly Fire that brought the Shadowhunters to the brink of oblivion. Emma Carstairs is no longer a child in mourning, but a young woman bent on discovering what killed her parents and avenging her losses.

Together with her parabatai Julian Blackthorn, Emma must learn to trust her head and her heart as she investigates a demonic plot that stretches across Los Angeles, from the Sunset Strip to the enchanted sea that pounds the beaches of Santa Monica. If only her heart didn’t lead her in treacherous directions…

Making things even more complicated, Julian’s brother Mark—who was captured by the faeries five years ago—has been returned as a bargaining chip. The faeries are desperate to find out who is murdering their kind—and they need the Shadowhunters’ help to do it. But time works differently in faerie, so Mark has barely aged and doesn’t recognize his family. Can he ever truly return to them? Will the faeries really allow it?
