The Complete Poetry of Edgar Allan Poe

From the exquisite lyric 'To Helen,' to the immortal masterpieces 'Annabel Lee,' 'The Bells,' and 'The Raven,' The Complete Poetry of Edgar Allan Poe demonstrates the author's gift for the form.

The Giver

Lois Lowry's The Giver is the quintessential dystopian novel, followed by its remarkable companions, Gathering Blue, Messenger, and Son. When Jonas turns 12, he is singled out to receive special training from The Giver. Now, it's time for Jonas to receive the truth. There is no turning back.

The Scholarship Scouting Report

The first in-depth guide to the nation's best, most accessible scholarship opportunities! A true insider in the world of tuition financing, Ben Kaplan has helped tens of thousands of students attend colleges and universities they never thought they'd be able to afford. Now he takes his expertise one step further in this behind-the-scenes tour of America's top scholarship programs. Based on hundreds of exhaustive interviews with scholarship judges, administrators, and past winners, this easy-to-use scouting report highlights the essential scholarships you must know about and helps you better address each scholarship's "hidden" judging criteria in your application. If you think the college of your dreams is out of your financial reach-or that your scholarship search has to be an overwhelming and frustrating process-think again: Ben Kaplan wrote the guide that will help you focus your search, position your scholarship candidacy, and ultimately afford the college of your choice. Special Note: As a valued reader of this book, you also receive access to the Coach's Locker Room at Ben Kaplan's ScholarshipCoach.com website. The Coach's Locker Room provides a wealth of bonus material, updates to information contained in The Scholarship Scouting Report, question and answer postings, and other helpful resources.

College Blue Book

This reference remains the definitive guide to 2-year and 4-year colleges in the U.S. and Canada. In addition to providing information on each college's programs, degrees and financial aid sources, these completely updated editions include Web site addresses for 86% of the more than 10,000 entries. The recently-added 6th volume covers distance learning.

City of Bones

Don't miss The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, now a major motion picture. Discover this first installment of the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series and "prepare to be hooked" (Entertainment Weekly). When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder-much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing-not even a smear of blood-to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy? This is Clary's first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It's also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace's world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know... Exotic and gritty, exhilarating and utterly gripping, Cassandra Clare's ferociously entertaining fantasy takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end.
