« Ici, on a ri ; là, on s'est disputés. Ici, on a aimé, on a rêvé. C'est là que le feu a pris. C'est ici que tout a commencé. »
Ce devait être l'été de sa vie : un road-trip avec sa meilleure amie, quelques flirts et sa première fois. Claudine avait tout prévu... sauf le divorce de ses parents. Traînée par sa mère sur une île perdue, elle s'apprête à passer un mois de juillet déprimant quand elle rencontre Jeremiah Crew. Après tout, quoi de mieux pour se changer les idées qu'un crush de vacances qu'on ne reverra jamais ? Et aucun risque de tomber amoureuse en à peine 35 jours...
/> Une romance à fleur de peau aussi sensible que sensuelle.
Quand Violet et Finch se rencontrent, ils sont au bord du vide, en haut de la tour du lycée, décidés à en finir avec la vie.
Finch est la "bête curieuse" de l'école. Il oscille entre les périodes d'accablement, dominées par des idées morbides et les phases "d'éveil" où il déborde d'énergie. De son côté, Violet avait tout pour elle. Mais, neuf mois plus tôt, sa soeur adorée est morte dans un accident de voiture. La survivante a perdu pied, s'est isolée et s'est laissé submerger par la culpabilité.
Pour Violet et Finch, c'est le début d'une histoire d'amour bouleversante: l'histoire d'une fille qui réapprend à vivre avec un garçon qui veut mourir.
Tout le monde croit connaîte Libby Groby, pourtant, personne ne s'est jamais intéressé qu'à son obésité. Elle a longtemps vécu recluse dans sa chambre, cachant son corps et ses angoisses. Cette année, sa vie peut changer : Libby s'est inscrite au lycée.
Tout le monde croit connaître Jack Masselin : étudiant rebelle, sexy... aux réactions imprévisibles. Sous son arrogance, Jack a enfoui un secret douloureux.
Une histoire d'amour rédemptrice.
Des ados justes et charismatiques et le courage de s'accepter tel que l'on est.
La fascinante aventure d'une femme au courage et à la ténacité hors du commun, reconnue tardivement comme " héroïne de l'Arctique ". Avec une préface d'Isabelle Autissier.
En 1923, l'explorateur canadien Vilhjalmur Stefansson envoie quatre jeunes hommes en Arctique. L'objectif : coloniser Wrangel, une île désolée, aux confins de l'Amérique et de la Russie.
Pour compléter l'équipe, il embauche une Inuite de vingt-trois ans, mère célibataire d'un enfant malade, qui voit là l'unique moyen de soigner correctement son fils. Ada Blackjack aura pour rôle de cuisiner et de rav-auder les vêtements ainsi que le matériel des explorateurs - rôle essentiel dans ces contrées glaciales.
Mais une fois sur l'île, la situation vire au cauchemar : la nourriture manque et le froid se fait plus assassin que jamais. Les plus confiants se mettent à douter, les plus vigoureux s'affaiblissent. Bientôt, ils se retrouvent à deux. Puis la jeune femme Ada sera seule. Abandonnée. Comment va-t-elle pou-voir survivre dans un environnement aussi hostile ?
La vérité, enfin, sur le destin d'une extraordinaire Robinson Crusoé au féminin, qui inspira nombre d'aventuriers, dont Isabelle Autissier, dont le bateau porte le nom.

From the Hardcover edition.
From the author of the New York Times bestseller All the Bright Places comes a heart-wrenching story about what it means to see someone--and love someone--for who they truly are. Everyone thinks they know Libby Strout, the girl once dubbed “America’s Fattest Teen.” But no one’s taken the time to look past her weight to get to know who she really is. Following her mom’s death, she’s been picking up the pieces in the privacy of her home, dealing with her heartbroken father and her own grief. Now, Libby’s ready: for high school, for new friends, for love, and for EVERY POSSIBILITY LIFE HAS TO OFFER. In that moment, I know the part I want to play here at MVB High. I want to be the girl who can do anything. Everyone thinks they know Jack Masselin, too. Yes, he’s got swagger, but he’s also mastered the impossible art of giving people what they want, of fitting in. What no one knows is that Jack has a newly acquired secret: he can’t recognize faces. Even his own brothers are strangers to him. He’s the guy who can re-engineer and rebuild anything in new and bad-ass ways, but he can’t understand what’s going on with the inner workings of his brain. So he tells himself to play it cool: Be charming. Be hilarious. Don’t get too close to anyone. Until he meets Libby. When the two get tangled up in a cruel high school game--which lands them in group counseling and community service--Libby and Jack are both pissed, and then surprised. Because the more time they spend together, the less alone they feel. . . . Because sometimes when you meet someone, it changes the world, theirs and yours. Jennifer Niven delivers another poignant, exhilarating love story about finding that person who sees you for who you are--and seeing them right back. "Want a love story that will give you all the feels? . . . You'll seriously melt!" --Seventeen Magazine “I've never fallen in love with characters as fast as I fell for Libby and Jack. Appreciating people for who they are--and who they can be!--comes alive when a boy who can't recognize faces and a girl once named ‘America's Fattest Teen’ let themselves connect. Holding Up the Universe is a beautiful reminder of the power of understanding.” --Jay Asher, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Thirteen Reasons Why “Gorgeously written and oh-so-deeply felt, Holding Up the Universe contains one of my favorite characters of all time! You will absolutely fall in love with Libby Strout!” --Nicola Yoon, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Everything, Everything “At once hilarious and achingly poignant, Jennifer Niven’s Holding up the Universe brims with love and heart and hope. A gorgeous, life-affirming book that--like its lovable and resilient main character, Libby--will make you want to open your arms wide, lift your face to the sky, and twirl.” --Kerry Kletter, author of The First Time She Drowned From the Hardcover edition.
