From the author of Sticks & Stones, a realistic middle-grade story with a dash of magic about a girl who sees other people´s thoughts in bubbles above their heads.

But then: Sophie starts seeing bubbles above people´s heads that tell her what they are thinking. Seeing other people´s thoughts should be cool, but it´s actually just stressful - what does it mean that Pratik wishes she and mom were eating with him? What does Viv Carlson´s school project have to do with her?

Set in San Francisco in 1956, The Broken Bubble traces the ups and downs and ins and outs of four characters who are not quite sure of the lives they’re living. Jim Briskin, local radio DJ, his ex-wife Pat, the young married couple Art and Rachel Emmanual – all are acutely observed and sympathetically portrayed. Briskin is suspended from his job for refusing to read a particularly repellant ad, while Art foolishly gets mixed up in a group of absurd would-be revolutionaries. As they all get entangled and not quite disentangled with each other, it becomes apparent they are seeking only – in typical Dick fashion – to live more or less happily - if not ever after, then at least for a while. Modest as it may seem, it is an ambition very difficult to achieve. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nick Podehl. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/brll/005601/bk_brll_005601_sample.mp3.

In their 2004 book The Coming Collapse of the Dollar, James Turk and John Rubino advised readers to bet against the housing bubble before it popped and to buy gold before it soared. Those were literally the two best investment ideas of the decade. Now Turk and Rubino are back to say that history is about to repeat. Instead of addressing the causes of the 2008 financial crisis, the world´s governments have continued along the same path, accumulating even more debt and inflating even bigger financial bubbles. So another - even bigger - crisis is coming. Whether it ends up being called a ´´crack-up boom´´ or ´´the End of Paper Money´´ or ´´the Second Great Depression,´´ it will change everything, from the kinds of investments that create new fortunes to the kinds of money that most of us save and spend. Among many other things, the authors explain: How governments are hiding the scope of the problems they face. Why the world´s paper currencies will soon stop functioning as money. How you can protect your savings from the threats posed by this transition from ´´unsound´´ paper currencies to ´´sound´´ money like gold and silver. How you can actually make money - perhaps a lot of it - during this transition. ´´Because the Money Bubble involves the world´s major currencies rather than just a discrete asset class like houses or tech stocks, its bursting will be both far more devastating for the unprepared and far more profitable for those able to understand it and act accordingly. Our goal is to usher you into this small but happy second group.´´ - James Turk and John Rubino, The Money Bubble 1. Language: English. Narrator: Larry Wayne.

Rosemary O´Neal lived for eight years with William, in a rambling country house in Maine. Then William committed suicide on a trip to London, leaving her with questions, anger, and no way to say goodbye. When her zany family descends on the house, bringing a tidal wave of casseroles and their own petty problems, Rosemary retreats with her cat from the chaos of the world around them. (Her cat understands human nature better than Homo sapiens anyway.) It takes an unsettling turn of events to shock her back into the pitfalls of living and realize that life is a fleeting experience to be carefully savored. Award-winning author Cathie Pelletier has been called ´´a bitingly funny, highly original novelist´´. In The Bubble Reputation, she redefines ´´dysfunctional´´ in this bittersweet, life-affirming story about the idiosyncrasies of family, the anguish of grief, and finding peace after chaos. 1.
