The gift, like so many gifts, was a book...'' So begins the essay by Robert Macfarlane that inspired this collection. In this cornucopia of an anthology, you will find essays by some of the world''s most beloved novelists, nonfiction writers, essayists and poets. ''You will see books taking flight in flocks, migrating around the world, landing in people''s hearts and changing them for a day or a year or a lifetime. ''You will see books sparking wonder or anger; throwing open windows into other languages, other cultures, other minds; causing people to fall in love or to fight for what is right. ''And more than anything, over and over again, you will see books and words being given, received and read - and in turn prompting further generosity.'' Published to coincide with the 20th anniversary of global literacy non-profit, Room to Read, The Gifts of Reading forms inspiring, unforgettable, irresistible proof of the power and necessity of books and reading. Inspired by Robert Macfarlane Curated by Jennie Orchard

Getting The Girl
In this sequel to the award-winning FIGHTING RUBEN WOLFE, Cameron explores the ecstasy, the danger, and the cost of love. Cameron Wolfe is a loser. He knows it. He''s the quiet one, not a soccer star like his brother Steve or a charming fighter with a new girl every week like his brother Rube. Cam would give anything to be near one of those girls, to love her and treat her right. He especially likes Rube''s latest, Octavia, with her brilliant ideas and bright green eyes. But what woman like that would want a loser like him? Maybe Octavia would, Cam discovers. Maybe he''d even have something to say. And those maybes change everything: winning, loving, losing, the Wolfe brothers, and Cameron himself.

Underdogs

release date: Aug 01, 2011
Underdogs
Before The Book Thief, Markus Zusak wrote a trilogy of novels about the Wolfe Brothers: The Underdog, Fighting Rueben Wolfe, and Getting the Girl. Cameron and Ruben Wolfe are champions at getting into fights, coming up with half-baked schemes, and generally disappointing girls, their parents, and their much more motivated older siblings. They''re intensely loyal to each other, brothers at their best and at their very worst. But when Cameron falls head over heels for Ruben''s girlfriend, the strength of their bond is tested to its breaking point. We''re proud to present these novels together for the first time, and to be introducing American readers to The Underdog, never before published in the United States. Fans of The Book Thief won''t want to miss reading the novels that launched Markus Zusak''s stellar career.

When Dogs Cry
From the author of the international bestseller The Book Thief and new novel Bridge of Clay. "You''re a bit of a lonely bastard, aren''t you?" said Rube. "Yeah," I answered, "I guess I am." But Cameron Wolfe is hungry. He''s sick of being the filthy, torn, half-smiling, half-scowling underdog. He''s finally met a girl. He''s got words in his spirit. And now he''s out to prove that there''s nothing more beautiful than an underdog who''s willing to stand up. PRAISE FOR WHEN DOGS CRY "The intersection of the characters is a real strength ... a story of family dynamics and coming of age" School Library Journal
