Summary: Two events made September 1st a memorable day for Jesse Cullum. First, he lost a pair of Oakley sunglasses. Second, he saved the life of President Ulysses S. Grant. In the near future of Robert Charles Wilson's Last Year, the technology exists to open doorways into the past--but not our past, not exactly. Each "past" is effectively an alternate world, identical to ours but only up to the date on which we access it. And a given "past" can only be reached once. After a passageway is open, it's the only road to that particular past; once closed, it can't be reopened. A passageway has been opened to a version of late 19th-century Ohio. It's been in operation for most of a decade, but it's no secret, on either side of time. A small city has grown up around it to entertain visitors from our time, and many locals earn a good living catering to them. But like all such operations, it has a shelf life; as the "natives" become more sophisticated, their version of the "past" grows less attractive as a destination. Jesse Cullum is a native. And he knows the passageway will be closing soon. He's fallen in love with a woman from our time, and he means to follow her back--no matter whose secrets he has to expose in order to do it.

Summary: They tell me that my memory will never be the same, that I'll start forgetting things. At first just a little, and then a lot. So I'm writing to remember. Sammie McCoy is a girl with a plan: graduate at the top of her class and get out of her small town as soon as possible. Nothing will stand in her way--not even the rare genetic disorder the doctors say will slowly steal her memories and then her health. So the memory book is born: a journal written to Sammie's future self, so she can remember everything from where she stashed her study guides to just how great it feels to have a best friend again. It's where she'll record every perfect detail of her first date with longtime-crush Stuart, a gifted young writer home for the summer. And where she'll admit how much she's missed her childhood friend Cooper, and the ridiculous lengths he will go to make her laugh. The memory book will ensure Sammie never forgets the most important parts of her life--the people who have broken her heart, those who have mended it--and most of all, that if she's going to die, she's going to die living. This moving and remarkable novel introduces an inspiring character you're sure to remember, long after the last page.

Summary: Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game is the winner of the Nebula and Hugo Awards In order to develop a secure defense against a hostile alien race's next attack, government agencies breed child geniuses and train them as soldiers. A brilliant young boy, Andrew "Ender" Wiggin lives with his kind but distant parents, his sadistic brother Peter, and the person he loves more than anyone else, his sister Valentine. Peter and Valentine were candidates for the soldier-training program but didn't make the cut—young Ender is the Wiggin drafted to the orbiting Battle School for rigorous military training. Ender's skills make him a leader in school and respected in the Battle Room, where children play at mock battles in zero gravity. Yet growing up in an artificial community of young soldiers Ender suffers greatly from isolation, rivalry from his peers, pressure from the adult teachers, and an unsettling fear of the alien invaders. His psychological battles include loneliness, fear that he is becoming like the cruel brother he remembers, and fanning the flames of devotion to his beloved sister. Is Ender the general Earth needs? But Ender is not the only result of the genetic experiments. The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Ender's two older siblings are every bit as unusual as he is, but in very different ways. Between the three of them lie the abilities to remake a world. If, that is, the world survives.

Summary: Michelle and Cliff Stage bought their isolated vacation cabin in the mountains of North Carolina with hopes of repairing their eighteen-year marriage. But when Cliff disappears one night searching for the source of a mysterious light in the woods, Michelle’s life will change in unimaginable ways. After the sheriff’s department fails to find him, Michelle scrambles down the same dark mountainside alone, the strange, beckoning light her only guide. What she discovers is a cabin, identical to theirs, housing a life she barely recognizes—and a husband she hardly knows. Cliff is a changed man. Now caring and considerate, no longer a manipulative womanizer, he is also missing a finger. He claims that Cassie, their teenage daughter, is dead, killed in a car accident over a year ago. Michelle knows that’s not possible—Cassie had phoned her from Atlanta only hours before. Even when shown Cassie’s grave, Michelle refuses to accept she’s gone. Michelle wants her daughter and her life back, and the only clue to what has happened is a man named Pink. A real estate agent and the man who years earlier built Michelle and Cliff’s cabin, Pink was rumored to have killed his wife and buried her on the property, then vanished, never to be seen again. But in Michelle’s new reality, Pink and his wife still reside in town and Pink’s smile-splashed billboards are everywhere. To get back to the world where her daughter exists, Michelle must unravel the mystery of Pink while questioning her very reality—and her sanity. Haunting, atmospheric, and deeply thought-provoking, The Cabin on Souder Hill questions the very nature of our existence and the choices we make to form it.

Summary: Par l’auteur du best-seller québécois Super cerveau - J’égare constamment mes clés. Pourquoi? - Merde, j’oublie encore le nom du restaurant qu’on m’a conseillé. Pourquoi? - Je ne dors vraiment plus aussi bien qu’avant. Pourquoi ? - Ma foi, mes amis radotent de plus en plus... Pourquoi ? Grâce à ses histoires captivantes et à un sens de l’humour sans pareil, John J. Medina réussit à traiter du vieillissement de manière divertissante et éclairante. Il s’y consacre en trois temps: 1 en s’intéressant d’abord au cerveau social ou affectif, qui joue un rôle de premier plan dans les relations interpersonnelles et la quête du bonheur, décrivant la nature changeante des émotions à mesure que les années s’ajoutent au compteur; 2 en approfondissant la mécanique du cerveau pensant, où il explique les transformations que subissent avec le temps la mémoire à court terme et les habiletés liées à la prise de décision; 3 en démontrant comment le sommeil, certains types d’exercices et certains régimes alimentaires peuvent ralentir le déclin associé au vieillissement. Bref, en 10 règles d’or éprouvées, l’auteur livre une panoplie de conseils pratiques qui permettent de garder le cerveau plus jeune que jamais. Parmi les faits saillants de ses découvertes originales, il dit: - Dansez! Ça préservera vos habiletés motrices; - Entretenez des amitiés! Ça procure des bienfaits cognitifs; - Apprenez une langue! Ça vous éloignera de la démence; - Tenez des discussions animées! Ça stimule le cerveau; - Pratiquez la gratitude! C’est un fabuleux antidote à la dépression. Vieillir sans perdre la tête ne donne pas les clés de la fontaine de jouvence, mais livre tous les secrets pour tirer le meilleur de votre âge d’or... et ne pas finir grincheux!

Summary: Cinema has been long associated with France, dating back to 1895, when Louis and Auguste Lumi_re screened their works, the first public viewing of films anywhere. Early silent pioneers Georges MZli_s, Alice Guy BlachZ and others followed in the footsteps of the Lumi_re brothers and the tradition of important filmmaking continued throughout the 20th century and beyond. In Encyclopedia of French Film Directors, Philippe Rège identifies every French director who has made at least one feature film since 1895. From undisputed masters to obscure one-timers, nearly 3,000 directors are cited here, including at least 200 filmmakers not mentioned in similar books published in France. Each director's entry contains a brief biographical summary, including dates and places of birth and death; information on the individual's education and professional training; and other pertinent details, such as real names (when the filmmaker uses a pseudonym). The entries also provide complete filmographies, including credits for feature films, shorts, documentaries, and television work. Some of the most important names in the history of film can be found in this encyclopedia, from masters of the Golden Age_Jean Renoir and RenZ Clair_to French New Wave artists such as Fran_ois Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard.

Summary: Le plus grand risque dans la vie, c'est de ne pas en prendre. « "Everything, everything" est vraiment TOUT : puissant, charmant, déchirant, et si prenant que je l'ai dévoré d'une traite. L'un des rares romans qui vous élèvent, vous brisent et vous nourrissent en même temps. » Jennifer Niven, auteur de "Tous nos jours parfaits" Ma maladie est aussi rare que célèbre, mais vous la connaissez sans doute sous le nom de « maladie de l'enfant-bulle ». En gros, je suis allergique au monde. Je viens d'avoir dix-huit ans, et je n'ai jamais mis un pied dehors. Un jour, un camion de déménagement arrive. Je regarde par la fenêtre et je le vois. Le fils des nouveaux voisins est grand, mince et habillé tout en noir. Il remarque que je l'observe, et nos yeux se croisent pour la première fois. Dans la vie, on ne peut pas tout prévoir, mais on peut prévoir certaines choses. Par exemple, je vais certainement tomber amoureuse de lui. Et ce sera certainement un désastre.

Summary: La situation de crise que nous traversons laisse craindre ou espérer un changement profond. C'est aussi celle des mots et des images. Et si les frontières de l'oeuvre d'art ne sont pas clairement définies, celles du sujet ne le sont pas davantage. Ses frontières sont malléables, dépendantes des contrées extérieures auxquelles il se frotte sans cesse. C'est un sujet en mouvement dans une société toujours plus rapide, plus performante, plus financiarisée. Cependant, l'agitation qui l'habite n'a pas pour seule origine un univers sociétal économique. Les espaces ou objets esthétiques, naturels ou méditatifs influent également. Qu'il soit créateur ou spectateur, le sujet se confronte à l'oeuvre d'art. Les arts et la littérature sont ici convoqués pour penser le rapport du sujet à son identité et au monde. En quoi les arts contribuent-ils à la construction du sujet ? En quoi la rencontre avec l'oeuvre agit-elle sur son identité ? Comment le sujet est-il "à l'oeuvre" lorsqu'il rencontre ou crée des oeuvres ?
