Jo Wright always swore she’d never step foot on Little Bridge Island - not as long as her nemesis, best-selling author Will Price, is living there. Then Jo’s given an offer she can’t refuse: an all-expense paid trip to speak and sign at the island’s first-ever book festival. Even though arrogant Will is the last person Jo wants to see, she could really use the festival’s more-than-generous speaking fee. She’s suffering from a crippling case of writer’s block on the next installment of her best-selling children’s series, and her father needs financial help as well.

On May 25, 1977, the world was introduced to Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, C-3PO, R2-D2, Chewbacca, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Vader, and a galaxy full of possibilities. In honor of the 40h anniversary, more than 40 contributors lend their vision to this retelling of Star Wars. Each of the 40 short stories reimagines a moment from the original film, but through the eyes of a supporting character.

Ihr Leben ändert sich von einem Moment auf den anderen, als eines Tages eine Limousine vor der Schule hält und Prinzessin Mia von Genovia Olivia einlädt, ihren gemeinsamen Vater kennenzulernen. In Wahrheit ist Olivia nämlich Mias Halbschwester und somit von königlicher Herkunft. Damit rückt sie in das Rampenlicht der Öffentlichkeit und hält ihre aufregenden Erlebnisse in einem Tagebuch für ihre beste Freundin fest.
As Little Bridge Island Public Library’s head of children’s services, Molly hopes the messiest thing in her life will be her sticky-note covered desk. But fate - in the form of a newborn left in the restroom - has other ideas. So does the sheriff who comes to investigate the “abandonment”.

Derweil plant ihre Schwester, Prinzessin Mia, die Hochzeit mit ihrem Verlobten. Doch je näher der große Tag rückt, desto mehr scheint schiefzulaufen. Daran dürfte nicht zuletzt Grandmère schuld sein - und dann tauchen auch noch Olivias neue Cousinen auf und benehmen sich nicht sehr königlich! Kann Olivia die Hochzeit retten und ihren Platz in der königlichen Familie finden? Witzig, frech und liebenswert berichtet Dagmar Bittner live aus dem königlichen Hochzeitschaos.
Number one New York Times best-selling author of the Princess Diaries, Meg Cabot knows the difficulties (real or otherwise) of awkward teenage years. In Twilight, Cabot continues her series about Suze Simon, the teenage mediator with an other-worldly boyfriend, Jesse de Silva. But when fellow mediator Paul Slater threatens to send Jesse back to where he came from, can Suze stop him in time?
Former pop star Heather Wells has settled into her new life as an assistant dorm director. But she's having a hard time dealing with a situation in the dorm's kitchen, where a cheerleader has literally lost her head. But she's definitely having a hard time dealing with the situation in the dormitory kitchen, where a cheerleader has literally lost her head on the first day of the semester.
She's just a New York City girl living with her artist mom. News flash: Dad is prince of Genovia. (So that's why a limo always meets her at the airport!) Downer: Dad can't have any more kids. (So no heir to the throne.) Shock of the century: Like it or not, Mia is prime princess material.
Being the crown princess of Genovia has never been easy for Mia. And if ruling a tiny country wasn't enough, she also has to deal with a broken heart after her true love Michael breaks up with her. So her parents send her to a therapist to at least get her out of bed. And just when she thinks things couldn't get any worse, she discovers a long buried secret that could affect her family forever.
Acclaimed author Meg Cabot is the creator of the #1 New York Times best seller The Princess Diaries. This latest edition to the Mediator series is a suspenseful tale of 16-year-old Suze, who acts as the middleman for ghosts and the real world. Unintentionally, Suze has fallen in love with a 19th-century ghost. Will she lose him forever if she solves his murder?
She doesn't want to go, but Em must chaperone her little sister to the grand opening of a new Stark Megastore. Her sister can't wait to see the heartthrobs and supermodels that will make an appearance, including hunky Gabriel Luna and beautiful Nikki Howard.
Heather Wells rocks! Or, at least, she did. That was before she left the pop-idol life behind after she gained a dress size or two - and lost a boyfriend, a recording contract, and her life savings (when Mom took the money and ran off to Argentina). Now that the glamour and glory days of endless mall appearances are in the past, Heather's perfectly happy with her new size 12 shape (the average for the American woman!) and her new job as an assistant dorm director at one of New York's top colleges.
This spring, Mia's determined to have a good time, despite the fact that the student government over which she presides is suddenly broke. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it) Grandmere has an elaborate scheme to simultaneously raise money, catapult Mia to theatrical fame, and link her romantically with an eligible teen bachelor, not her boyfriend. It's no wonder that Michael, the love of her life, seems to think she's a psycho, or worse: not much fun.
Princess Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo may seem like she's the luckiest girl ever. She's a princess, for starters. And while she's no supermodel, mirrors do not crack at her reflection. Best of all, she finally has a boyfriend. However, all she wants is a little peace and quiet...and a certain someone else to be her boyfriend. For Mia, being a princess in love is not the fairy-tale it's supposed to be...or is it?
At last, Mia is a junior - an upper class person, free of her responsibilities as student-body president. So why is it that everything is going so terribly wrong? What is she doing in Intro to Creative Writing? When she has made it through algebra and geometry, why must she be faced with Pre-Calculus? And for the love of all that is Genovian, why has Lilly nominated her for school prez again? All this is nothing compared to the news Michael springs on her, however.
All Susannah Simon wants is to make a good impression at her first job since graduating from college (and since becoming engaged to Dr. Jesse de Silva). But when she's hired as a guidance counselor at her alma mater, she stumbles across a decade-old murder, and soon ancient history isn't all that's coming back to haunt her. Old ghosts as well as new ones are coming out of the woodwork, some to test her, some to vex her, and it isn't only because she's a mediator gifted with second sight.
Since Mia's the brand-new crown princess of Genovia, indomitable dowager princess Grandmere arranges a national primetime interview for her. With just a few innocent remarks, Mia manages to enrage her best friend Lilly, practically get one of her teachers fired, and alienate the entire country of Genovia. (Population 50,000, but still!)
New York Times best-selling author Meg Cabot fills each adventure in the Mediator series with suspense and humor. Suze Simon is a liaison between ghosts and the living. But this teenager is no hand-holder, she's tough on the spirits who need her help. When the ghost of a murdered woman wakes Suze up one night with an troublesome request, the 16-year-old just wants to get rid of her.
After a freak accident puts Emerson Watts' brainiac mind in the body of supermodel Nikki Howard, it seems things can't get any worse. Then Nikki's mother mysteriously disÂappears and her brother shows up looking for answers. To top it all off, Em's old best friend Christopher is looking to exact revenge on the corporation responsible for Em's accident.
For Princess Mia the past five years since college graduation have been a whirlwind of activity, what with living in New York City, running her new teen community center, being madly in love, and attending royal engagements. And speaking of engagements. Mia's gorgeous longtime boyfriend, Michael, managed to clear both their schedules just long enough for an exotic (and very private) Caribbean island interlude where he popped the question!
