              A gripping tale of suspense, secrets, and the unbreakable bonds of sisterhood. --Karen M. McManus, New York Times bestselling author of One of Us Is Lying If you loved The Third Twin and One of Us Is Lying and binge-watched Thirteen Reasons Why, get ready for a heart-wrenching ps...ychological thriller about a girl who knows her twin sister better than anyone . . . or does she? Taut and atmospheric, The Window will keep you guessing until the end. Secrets have a way of getting out. . . . Anna is everything her identical twin is not. Outgoing and athletic, she is the opposite of quiet introvert Jess. The same on the outside, yet so completely different inside--it's hard to believe the girls are sisters, let alone twins. But they are. And they tell each other everything. Or so Jess thought. After Anna falls to her death while sneaking out her bedroom window, Jess's life begins to unravel. Everyone says it was an accident, but to Jess, that doesn't add up. Where was Anna going? Who was she meeting? And how long had Anna been lying to her? Jess is compelled to learn everything she can about the sister she thought she knew. At first it's a way to stay busy and find closure . . . but Jess soon discovers that her twin kept a lot of secrets. And as she digs deeper, she learns that the answers she's looking for may be truths that no one wants her to uncover. Because Anna wasn't the only one with secrets. Layered and compelling, The Window is a fast-paced mystery anchored by a bold and intriguing protagonist, and you won't want to put it down until you've uncovered every last one of its secrets! --Caleb Roehrig, author of Last Seen Leaving Lyrical and haunting, with plenty of twists that kept me reading long into the night. --Kara Thomas, author of The Darkest Corners

              Indigenous Latina women living in the American West take center stage in this debut collection of stories--a powerful meditation on friendship, mothers and daughters, and the deep-rooted truths of our homelands. Kali Fajardo-Anstine's magnetic debut story collection breathes life... into her Indigenous Latina characters and the land they inhabit. Set against the remarkable backdrop of Denver, Colorado--a place that is as fierce as it is exquisite--these women navigate the land the way they navigate their own lives: with caution, grace, and quiet force. In Sugar Babies, ancestry and heritage are hidden inside the earth, but have the tendency to ascend during land disputes. Any Further West follows a sex worker and her daughter as they leave their ancestral home in southern Colorado only to find a foreign and hostile land in California. In Tomi, a woman returns home from prison, finding herself in a gentrified city that is a shadow of the one she remembers from her childhood. And in the title story, Sabrina and Corina, a Denver family falls into a cycle of violence against women, coming together only through ritual. Sabrina and Corina is a moving exploration of the universal experiences of abandonment, friendships and mother-daughter relationships, and the deep-rooted truths of our homelands and the people who inhabit it.

              Sleeps Standing: A Story of the Battle of Orakau (Paperback)

              "Both fiction and fact, this book is an exploration of the Battle of Orakau. During three days in 1864, 300 Maori men, women and children fought an Imperial army and captured the imagination of the world. The battle marked the end of the Land Wars in the Waikato and resulted in v...ast tracts of land being confiscated for European settlement. Instead of following the usual standpoint of the victors, this book takes a Maori perspective. It is centred around Witi Ihimaeras moving novella, Sleeps Standing, which views the battle through the eyes of a 16-year-old boy named Moet. Alongside the novella are non-fiction narratives from Maori eyewitnesses, together with images and a Maori translation by Hmi Kelly, further giving voice to and illuminating the people who tried to protect their culture and land. It is estimated that, at the height of the battle, 1700 immensely superior troops, well armed and amply resourced, laid siege to the hastily constructed p at Orakau. The defenders were heavily outnumbered with few supplies or weapons but, when told to submit, they replied: E hoa, ka whawhai tonu matou, ake, ake, ake! Friend, I shall fight against you for ever, for ever!"--Publisher information.
