When Mae is hired to work for the Circle, the world's most powerful internet company, she feels she's been given the opportunity of a lifetime. Run out of a sprawling California campus, the Circle links users' personal emails, social media, and finances with their universal operating system, resulting in one online identity and a new age of transparency. Mae can't believe her great fortune to work for them - even as life beyond the campus grows distant, even as a strange encounter with a colleague leaves her shaken, even as her role at the Circle becomes increasingly public ...
My Name is Leon
Leon is nine, and has a perfect baby brother called Jake. They have gone to live with Maureen, who has fuzzy red hair like a halo, and a belly like Father Christmas. But the adults are speaking in low voices, and wearing Pretend faces. They are threatening to give Jake to strangers. Since Jake is white and Leon is not. My Name is Leon is a heart-breaking story of love, identity and learning to overcome unbearable loss. Of the fierce bond between siblings. And how - just when we least expect it - we manage to find our way home.
Of Mice and Men
Of Mice and Men is about two migrant workers in California who, during the Great Depression, hire themselves out to farm. One of them is named Lennie; he's one of those gentle giants who doesn't know his own strength. George, his best friend, is the strong-and-silent type and he's devoted to Lennie and is always bailing him out of trouble. There's a strong bond between the two of them, until one day tragedy strikes and George comes to the rescue in one of the most shattering ways that you could ever imagine.
