This complete primer on San Francisco Bay is a multifaceted exploration of an extraordinary, and remarkably resilient, body of water. Bustling with oil tankers, laced with pollutants, and crowded with forty-six cities, the bay is still home to healthy eelgrass beds, young Dungeness crabs and sharks, and millions of waterbirds. Written in an entertaining style for a wide audience, Natural History of San Francisco Bay delves into an array of topics including fish and wildlife, ocean and climate cycles, endangered and invasive species, and the path from industrialization to environmental restoration. More than sixty scientists, activists, and resource managers share their views and describe their work—tracing mercury through the aquatic ecosystem, finding ways to convert salt ponds back to tidal wetlands, anticipating the repercussions of climate change, and more. Fully illustrated and packed with stories, quotes, and facts, the guide also tells how San Francisco Bay sparked an environmental movement that now reaches across the country.

Now and then, you still can see the tattered remains of a bumper sticker exclaiming: “If you remember the ’60s, you weren’t there!” But Steven P. Unger is an exception to the rule—he took notes. As a result, his novel Dancing in the Streets is replete with unforgotten and unforgettable images of events and scenes that have long been lost in a smoke-filled haze. From the Merry Pranksters’ Wavy Gravy teaching breathing lessons outside Nixon’s first Inaugural Ball to a near-fatal encounter with Charles de Gaulle’s Republican Guard in Paris, there are compelling scenes from beginning to end no less cinematically vivid for the fact that they’re real. And while the story-chapters of Dancing in the Streets have more than just a ring of truth to them along with generous helpings of riotous comedy, there is also a compelling mystery haunting Unger’s alter ego, Steven Strazza: a deathbed revelation that leads to the discovery of long-buried secrets of murders affecting families on three different continents.

After her estranged brother suddenly dies, a girl embarks on a road trip to rediscover who her brother really was in Vicky Skinner's contemporary YA novel, We Are the Ghosts. When Ellie's estranged brother, Luke, dies in a car accident, she's not sure whether to be devastated that she lost the person who was once her best friend or enraged, still, that he left without a word a year ago. Now, the only people who seem to understand what she's going through are Luke's best friend and his ex-girlfriend, who she bonds with over their desire to figure out where Luke went when he walked out of their lives. As she gets closer to them, and closer to Cade, a boy who seems determined to get to know her better, she realizes that she’s not the only one with reasons to be angry at Luke. And when Ellie makes a discovery that changes everything, she and her new friends hit the road, hoping that following Luke's trail will bring them answers about the life Luke was living away from them.

The beloved debut story collection from the New York Times-bestselling author of Modern Lovers and The Vacationers. In Other People We Married, Straub creates characters as recognizable as a best friend, and follows them through moments of triumph and transformation with wit, vulnerability, and dazzling insight. In “Some People Must Really Fall in Love,” an assistant professor takes halting steps into the awkward world of office politics while harboring feelings for a freshman student. Two sisters struggle with old assumptions about each other as they stumble to build a new relationship in “A Map of Modern Palm Springs.” In “Puttanesca,” two widows move tentatively forward, still surrounded by ghosts and disappointments from the past. These twelve stories, filled with sharp humor, emotional acuity, and joyful language, announce the arrival of a major new talent.
