A picture is worth a thousand lies in this psychological thriller by bestselling author David Levithan (Every Day; Will Grayson, Will Grayson with John Green). In this high school-set psychological tale, a tormented teen named Evan starts to discover a series of unnerving photographs—some of which feature him. Someone is stalking him . . . messing with him . . . threatening him. Worse, ever since his best friend Ariel has been gone, he's been unable to sleep, spending night after night torturing himself for his role in her absence. And as crazy as it sounds, Evan's starting to believe it's Ariel that's behind all of this, punishing him. But the more Evan starts to unravel the mystery, the more his paranoia and insomnia amplify, and the more he starts to unravel himself. Creatively told with black-and-white photos interspersed between the text so the reader can see the photos that are so unnerving to Evan, Every You, Every Me is a one-of-a-kind departure from a one-of-a-kind author. From the Hardcover edition.

Where are you on your faith journey? Many have described faith as a journey, and it seems very accurate and appropriate to do so. Now, to be sure, it's no random jaunt or spree! It is a lifelong expedition with much uncertainty and loneliness. The weight we carry rarely gets lighter, and it requires more strength than we know we have. Along this journey, we lose our way and our confidence. We get distracted and stuck and sometimes become hopeless and despairing, but we also learn and gain wisdom, celebrate and find meaning, and ultimately arrive at discovering who God created us to be and who God really is. As with every long journey, our faith journey needs a map, perhaps even an atlas. Thankfully, each and every step of our journey is intimately and definitively known by our loving God, who is there With You Every Step of the Way. Christopher B. Wolf's new book is for everyone who desires to navigate and draw closer to God along the unpredictable but exhilarating journey of faith. It serves as a 'word atlas' of both the things we need along the way and what we receive: assurance, heart and soul, fellowship, possibilities, and transformation. Formatted for the individual who needs insight and support, as well as for the small group that wants to grow, study, and think together, With You Every Step of the Way includes thoughtful messages as well as reflection questions that will inspire compelling contemplation and discussion. Christopher B. Wolf is the author of Giving Faith a Second Chance: Restarts, Mulligans and Do-Overs. He has served and led churches in New Jersey and Michigan and now lives in Saddle Brook, New Jersey, with his wife, Jennifer, and children, Brian and Madelyn.

This is the first anthology of Yuan-dynasty zaju (miscellaneous comedies) to introduce the genre to English-speaking readers exclusively through translations of the plays' fourteenth-century editions. Almost all previous translations of Yuan-dynasty zaju are based on late-Ming regularized editions that were heavily adapted for performance at the Ming imperial court and then extensively revised in the seventeenth century for the reading pleasure of Jiangnan literati. These early editions are based on leading actor scripts and contain arias, prose dialogue, and cue lines. They encompass a fascinating range of subject matter, from high political intrigue to commoner life and religious conversion. Crackling with raw emotion, violent imagery, and colorful language and wit, the zaju in this volume explore the consequences of loyalty and betrayal, ambition and enlightenment, and piety and drunkenness. The collection features seven of the twenty-six available untranslated zaju published in the fourteenth century, with a substantial introduction preceding each play and extensive annotations throughout. The editors also include translations of the Ming versions of four of the included plays and an essay that synthesizes recent Chinese and Japanese scholarship on the subject.
