Summary

The young wife of the most powerful man in Ireland has been kidnapped, and Nate and Gerald must save her—from their own family, if necessary While her husband is away on business, Daisy Wildenstern buys a shape-shifting engimal from the charming adventurer Peter Barnum. The origins of the part-animal, part-machine being are a mystery. Life is cruel in Daisy’s family. Trained from childhood to be merciless predators, the Wildensterns are taught to trust no one—especially not their treacherous relatives. As long as their reputation stays intact, nothing is considered unacceptable on their quest for wealth and power. But Daisy belongs to a new generation of Wildensterns who are determined to defy their elders and live a more honorable life. When Daisy and the engimal go missing, it is of little surprise that most of her family doesn’t seem to care. It’s up to her brother-in-law, Nate, and his cousin Gerald to find Daisy and face her kidnapper, a ruthlessly cunning hunter. With relatives like these, who needs enemies?

    Aria is an elemental artist-she creates fire from her hands. But her power is not natural. She steals it from lightning. It's dangerous and illegal in her world. When she's recruited to perform in a League of artists, she seizes the chance to get away from her family. But her power is fading too fast to keep stealing from the sky. She has no choice but to turn to a Granter-a modern day genie. She gets one wish and the price is extremely high. Aria's willing to take a chance, but then she falls in love with the Granter . . . and he wants his freedom. Aria must decide how much she's willing to bargain and how much her own heart, body, and soul are worth. 
     
    In a world where the sport of elemental powers is as popular as the NFL, readers will be swept away by a romance with stakes higher than life and death. Critically acclaimed author Daisy Whitney brings thrilling (and dangerous) imagination to her second YA fantasy.

    There has been a terrible mistake. Wayside School was supposed to have been built with thirty classrooms all next to each other in a row. Instead it was built with the thirty classrooms all on top of each other - thirty storeys high! That may be why all kinds of strange stuff happens at Wayside School. Especially on the thirtieth floor. It is a school full of unusual characters too. Mrs Gorf, the meanest teacher in the world. Terrible Todd who always gets sent home early. John who can only read upside down. It is a crazy mixed-up school, brilliantly brought to life by the irresistible Louis Sachar.
