Some leaders are born, but most leaders are made—and The Little Black Book of Success will show you how to make it to the top, one step at a time. From the Hardcover edition.

The Revolution of Ivy
"Engel makes good use of her setting; the fight for survival on the cusp of winter stokes the sense of danger in a way that matches Ivy’s roiling feelings, and the love story moves with the slow-growing heat that Ivy needs.” —Kirkus Reviews Beyond the fence. I am still alive. Barely. My name is Ivy Westfall. I am sixteen years old and a traitor.

There is life beyond the fence. But I can't outrun my past. For my actions have set off a treasonous chain of events in Westfall that will change all of our fates—especially Bishop's. And this time, it is not enough to just survive...

The Casual Vacancy
When Barry Fairbrother dies in his early forties, the town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty facade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils. . . Pagford is not what it first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations? A big novel about a small town, THE CASUAL VACANCY is J.K. Rowling's first novel for adults. It is the work of a storyteller like no other.
