              NATIONAL BESTSELLER * Explore the past of Critical Role's daring half-elf twins, Vex'ahlia and Vax'ildan, in this original prequel novel to their adventures with Vox Machina. Vex and Vax have always been outsiders. A harsh childhood in the elite elven city of Syngorn quickly taug...ht them not to rely on others. Now, freed from the expectations of their exacting father and the scornful eyes of Syngorn's elves, the cunning hunter and the conning thief have made their own way in the world of Exandria. The twins have traveled far and experienced great hardship. But with the help of Vex's quick wit and Vax's quicker dagger, they've always kept ahead of trouble. Now, unknown perils await them in the bustling city of Westruun, where the twins become entangled in a web spun by the thieves' guild known to many as the Clasp. Trapped by a hasty deal, Vex and Vax (along with Vex's faithful bear companion, Trinket) set out into the wilds to fulfill their debt to the infamous crime syndicate. As the situation grows more complicated than they ever could have imagined, for the first time Vex and Vax find themselves on opposite sides of a conflict that threatens the home they have carried with each other for years. Written by #1 New York Times bestselling author Marieke Nijkamp, Critical Role: Vox Machina-Kith & Kin follows a brand-new adventure that delves into the twins' unexplored history, and returns to some of the iconic moments that forged Vox Machina's most unbreakable bond.

              #1 NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER * In this urgent, authoritative book, Bill Gates sets out a wide-ranging, practical-and accessible-plan for how the world can get to zero greenhouse gas emissions in time to avoid a climate catastrophe. Bill Gates has spent a decade investigating the... causes and effects of climate change. With the help of experts in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, political science, and finance, he has focused on what must be done in order to stop the planet's slide to certain environmental disaster. In this book, he not only explains why we need to work toward net-zero emissions of greenhouse gases, but also details what we need to do to achieve this profoundly important goal. He gives us a clear-eyed description of the challenges we face. Drawing on his understanding of innovation and what it takes to get new ideas into the market, he describes the areas in which technology is already helping to reduce emissions, where and how the current technology can be made to function more effectively, where breakthrough technologies are needed, and who is working on these essential innovations. Finally, he lays out a concrete, practical plan for achieving the goal of zero emissions-suggesting not only policies that governments should adopt, but what we as individuals can do to keep our government, our employers, and ourselves accountable in this crucial enterprise. As Bill Gates makes clear, achieving zero emissions will not be simple or easy to do, but if we follow the plan he sets out here, it is a goal firmly within our reach.

              A coloring book based on the empowering words of inspirational women throughout history, from the team behind the bestselling and award-winning Whatever Is Lovely and Choose Joy With beautiful illustrations, inspirational quotes, and brief biographies, Courage, Dear Heart invites... women to find strength in their community and discover courage by stepping into the calling God has uniquely ordained for them. The empowering coloring pages feature original designs from talented female artists and quotes from inspiring women in both the past and the present. Too often, women are made to believe they are less than when it comes to importance, worth, beauty, or ability. But this was never the message God intended them to receive. Rather, God has appointed us to purpose and strength and whispers words of courage and reassurance over us. We can be community-builders like Eve, warriors like Deborah, rescuers like Rahab, prophecy-fulfillers like Ruth, leaders like Esther, believers like Mary, teachers like Priscilla, prophetesses like Anna, and members of the great cloud of witnesses like so many of the women quoted in these pages. Features include: * Large format 9.75 x 9.75 (25x25cm) perforated pages * 45 single-sided coloring pages * Quotes from the Bible, hymns, and a variety of inspirational women and speakers, such as Francine Rivers, Grace Cho, Julian of Norwich, Jennie Allen, Rosa Parks, Ruth Chou Simons, Corrie Ten Boom, and more * Illustrations by Holly Camp, Jennifer Tucker, Ann-Margret Hovsepian, Laura Marshall, and Bridget Hurley-all featured in Whatever Is Lovely and Choose Joy-as well as new artist Shannon Contreras Through the words in this coloring book, women will feel called to fulfill their own incredible purpose and mission-one of lifting their voices to make God's kingdom known on earth, one of loving and encouraging their communities well, and one of empowering those around them to do the same.

              An epic meditation on loving oneself in the face of heartbreak, from the acclaimed author of Build Yourself a Boat, longlisted for the National Book Award When Camonghne Felix goes through a monumental breakup, culminating in a hospital stay, everything-from her early childhood t...rauma and mental health to her relationship with mathematics-shows up in the tapestry of her healing. In this exquisite and raw reflection, Camonghne repossesses herself through the exploration of history she'd left behind, using her childhood dyscalculia -a disorder that makes it difficult to learn math-as a metaphor for the consequences of her miscalculations in love. Through reckoning with this breakup and other adult gambles in intimacy, Felix asks the question: Who gets to assert their right to pain? Dyscalculia negotiates the misalignments of perception and reality, love and harm, and the politics of heartbreak, both romantic and familial.

              From the daughter of sharecroppers who became the first African American president of an Ivy League university comes an inspiring, indelible memoir about the people and places who made her remarkable life possible--and the power of education and books in a young person's life I w...as born at a crossroads: a crossroads in history, a crossroads in culture, and a geographical crossroads in North Houston County in East Texas. Ruth Simmons has led an extraordinary life. The former president of Smith College and Brown University, and now the outgoing president of Prairie View A&M, Texas's oldest HBCU, she has inspired generations of students. Born in 1945, Simmons grew up in the small town of Grapeland, Texas, the twelfth child of sharecroppers. Her first home had no water or electricity, and some of her earliest memories are of the cotton field. Yet despite this--in fact, because of it--Ruth would go on to become one of America's preeminent educators. In Up Home, her memoir and origin story, Ruth takes us back to Grapeland and the family and community that had little economically but endless supplies of joy and love. We meet her ingenious mother who learned to make supper with a mostly empty pantry, and her father who refused to let the crushing realities of racial and economic injustice squelch the dreams of his youngest daughter. We meet the doting brothers and sisters and the attentive teachers who would welcome Ruth into the classroom every morning. A book about Black girlhood, Up Home shows how the specifics of time and place shape who we become in unexpected ways. Moving from the farmland of East Texas to Houston's Fifth Ward to New Orleans at the dawn of the civil rights movement, Up Home is the uplifting story of a girl whose intellect, grace, and curiosity would lead her to make history. Like Ruth herself, this book is full of understatement, optimism, and a firm belief in the ideals of America.

              This powerful (BuzzFeed) debut about love, grief, and family welcomes you into its pages and invites you to linger, staying with you long after you've closed its covers. SHORTLISTED FOR THE RAKUTEN KOBO EMERGING WRITER PRIZE * Quietly moving . . . connected by a kind of dream log...ic . . . deeply felt . . . There is joy and tenderness in . . . Fung's elegant storytelling. -The New York Times Book Review How do you grieve, if your family doesn't talk about feelings? This is the question the unnamed protagonist of GhostForest considers after her father dies. One of the many Hong Kong astronaut fathers, he stays there to work, while the rest of the family immigrated to Canada before the 1997 Handover, when the British returned sovereignty over Hong Kong to China. As she revisits memories of her father through the years, she struggles with unresolved questions and misunderstandings. Turning to her mother and grandmother for answers, she discovers her own life refracted brightly in theirs. Buoyant and heartbreaking, Ghost Forest is a slim novel that envelops the reader in joy and sorrow. Fung writes with a poetic and haunting voice, layering detail and abstraction, weaving memory and oral history to paint a moving portrait of a Chinese-Canadian astronaut family. Ghost Forest is the tender/funny book we can all appreciate after a hellish year. -Literary Hub
