"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Editorial Reviews Review

The Sea of Tranquility is a young adult book by Katja Millay that is sure to entice you into reading. In this book, you'll read about a former pianist who begins high school hoping to conceal her past while seeking revenge against a man who destroyed her life.

The Sea of Tranquility follows Nastya Kashnikov as she tries to get the boy who took her identity, her will to live, and her spirit away from her to pay for what he's done. Josh Bennett doesn't know it's Nastya who is involving herself in his life, and he becomes romantically interested in her as their relationship matures. As things become more complicated, the two have piles of questions that need answers.

This story builds slowly, allowing time for the characters to develop, so if you want to read a book that paces well, this is the book for you. The compelling characters are well-developed, and the underlying discussion of the trauma that happened to the main character and the after-effects that it can cause make the story bold and interesting to the readers.

The author creates networks of characters in this book, so you'll never be left asking why something happened or who someone is. With a solid plotline and an emphasis on the main goal of the protagonist, The Sea of Tranquility is one that will keep you reading until the very last word.

Add The Sea of Tranquility, a young adult romance novel, to your list of books to read for an exciting tale that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

From Booklist

Aspiring concert pianist Nastya’s left hand has been so badly damaged, she will never play the piano again. What caused the injury has left the 17-year-old traumatized; in fact, she has chosen to become mute and hasn’t spoken a word in more than a year. Meanwhile, Josh, also 17, has lost his entire family to death, leaving him bereft and very much alone in the world. The two troubled teens meet and begin a cautious friendship that will blossom into something deeper. But will it be enough to save the two from themselves? Author Millay writes her first novel from the respective points of view of the preternaturally introspective teens, whose relentless self-loathing—especially Nastya’s—will test some readers’ patience, as will the book’s length and often deliberate pace. That said, fans of character-driven fiction will find much to admire in this deeply felt novel that is an excellent example of crossover fiction, which has equal appeal to older teens and the twentysomethings who are now being called New Adults. --Michael Cart
