The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

"What's the point of having a voice if you're gonna be silent in those moments you shouldn't be?"

Sixteen-year-old Starr lives in two worlds: the poor neighbourhood where she was born and raised and her posh high school in the suburbs. The uneasy balance between them is shattered when Starr is the only witness to the fatal shooting of her unarmed best friend, Khalil, by a police officer. Now what Starr says could destroy her community. It could also get her killed.

Cover Reveal - A Column of Fire by Ken Follett



A Column of fire by Ken Follett, the sequel to his bestselling The Pillars of the Earth and World without End releases today and I'm here to reveal the cover! Thanks to Pan Macmillan India for this opportunity!
In 1558, the ancient stones of Kingsbridge Cathedral look down on a city torn apart by religious conflict. As power in England shifts precariously netween Catholics and Protestants, royalty and commoners clash, testing friendship, loyalty and love.                                                                                                                         
Ned Willard wants nothing more than to marry Margery Fitzgerald. But when the lovers find themselves on opposing sides of the religious conflict dividing the country, Ned goes to work for Princess Elizabeth. When she becomes Queen, all Europe turns against England. The shrewd, determined young monarch sets up the country's first secret service to give her early warning of assassination plots, revellions, and invasion plans. Over a turbulent half century, the love between Ned and Margery seems doomed as extremism sparks violence from Edinburgh to Geneva. Elizabeth clings to her throne and her principles, protected by a small, dedicated group of resourceful spies and courageous secret agents.                                                                                                                              
The real enemies, then as now, are not the rival religions. The true battle pitches between those who believe in tolerance and compromise against the tyrants who would impose their ideas on everyone else - no matter what the cost.
