    Envelope Covers

    13.08.13 | Permalink | Comments Off on Envelope Covers

    Getting mail when I was a kid was always exciting. It meant birthday cards or a letter from a relative who was far away or postcards with pretty pictures of exotic places. Envelopes meant I got something that was just for me. As a side note, I’d like to stress that the internet wasn’t around as much when we were growing up. Now the envelopes I get mostly contain bills or letters from Studylink or IRD. Which are usually far from fun. Check that alliteration. Anyway, it would appear that envelopes are universally pretty exciting. Or some book publishers think so. This is a collection of some of the envelope themed book covers we have:

    In this modern-day suburban town, one percent of all fatalities come about in the most peculiar way. Deaths—eight-foot-tall, silver-gray creatures—send a letter (“Dear So-and-So, your days are numbered”) to whomever is chosen for a departure, telling them to wrap up their lives and do the things they always wanted to do before they have to “depart.” When sixteen-year-old Gabriela receives her notice, she is, of course devastated. Will she kiss her crush Sylvester before it’s too late?

    The death of social worker Lesley Cozens brings together two unlikely teenagers; her daughter Chloe and “delinquent” charge Nicky Nelson. Lesley wrote Nicky a letter before she died which triggers a rage in Nicky and potentially tragic consequences if Chloe had not got involved. When Nicky begins hanging around Chloe’s house with a mixture of curiosity and anger that she has had a happy life compared with his, he is prepared to hate her, but instead the two of them form a strange kind of bond. Chloe is her mother’s daughter, and finds herself wanting to help Nicky find his real mother, the one who abandoned him at birth. Ironically, the clues she pieces together about what happened lead her back to her mother’s home town, and to her childhood friend, Sonia, who is keeping a painful secret of her own.

    book cover courtesy of SyndeticsThe Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks, E. Lockhart

    We’ve mentioned this one before and we’ll be mentioning it again we can promise. Until you’ve all read it because it is that good. Frankie Landau-Banks is a super smart teen in a super competitive private boarding school. She’s on a mission to prove everyone wrong. And carry out some genius pranks and have some misadventures along the way. Not the misadventures you’re thinking of though, Frankie takes on a male-only secret society and races to solve a decades old mystery.

    Seventeen-year-old Ginny receives a little blue envelope from her favorite aunt. It contains $1,000 in cash, and the instructions to pick up a package of envelopes that start Ginny on a trip around Europe, tracing the steps of her eccentric Aunt. The instructions are specific; no cell phones, no maps, and Ginny can only open one envelope at a time, after she’s completed each task in the previous letter. Ginny leaves New Jersey to criss-cross Europe on a sort of scavenger hunt that transforms her life. There’s also the sequel: The Last Little Blue Envelope.

    The S.A.S.S. : Students Across the Seven Seas books

    These are about young girls who are studying abroad. When Irish Guys Are Smiling is about seventeen-year-old Delk Sinclair who wants to get away from debutante balls and her pregnant young stepmother in Nashville so she goes to Connemara, Ireland for a semester of study. There she falls for a handsome young Irishman and finally begins to recover from the death of her mother. The Great Call of China is about 16-year-old Cece who goes to China in an attempt to discover her roots and possibly find out about her birth parents. Born in China, but adopted at age 2 and living in Texas, Cece finds culture shock and romance as she pursues the information to satisfy her questions.

    book cover courtesy of SyndeticsPostSecret : Extraordinary Confessions from Ordinary Lives, compiled by Frank Warren.

    Frank Warren had an idea for a community art project: he began handing out postcards to strangers and leaving them in public places – asking people to write down a secret they had never told anyone and mail it to him, anonymously. The response was overwhelming. The secrets were both provocative and profound, and the cards themselves were works of art – carefully and creatively constructed by hand. Addictively compelling, the cards reveal our deepest fears, desires, regrets, and obsessions. As Frank began posting the cards on his website, PostSecret took on a life of its own, becoming much more than a simple art project but is now a global phenomenon.

    about the ordinary teen:

    book cover courtesy of SyndeticsDear Life, You Suck, Scott Blagden (306 pages) – Irreverent, foulmouthed seventeen-year-old Cricket is the oldest ward in a Catholic boys’ home in Maine—and his life sucks. With prospects for the future that range from professional fighter to professional drug dealer, he seems doomed to a life of “criminal rapscallinity.” In fact, things look so bleak that Cricket can’t help but wonder if his best option is one final cliff dive into the great unknown. But then Wynona Bidaban steps into his world, and Cricket slowly realizes that maybe, just maybe, life doesn’t totally suck.

    First lines: “The shrinkadinks think I have a screw loose. Ain’t playing with a full deck. Whacked-out wiring. Missing marbles.”

    book cover courtesy of SyndeticsEscape Theory, Margaux Froley (269 pages) – Sixteen-year-old Devon Mackintosh has always felt like an outsider at Keaton, the prestigious California boarding school perched above the Pacific. As long as she’s not fitting in, Devon figures she might as well pad her application to Stanford’s psych program. So junior year, she decides to become a peer counsellor, a de facto therapist for students in crisis. At first, it seems like it will be an easy fly-on-the-wall gig, but her expectations are turned upside down when Jason Hutchins (a.k.a. “Hutch”), one of the Keaton’s most popular students, commits suicide. Devon dives into her new role providing support for Hutch’s friends, but as the secrets and confessions pile up in her sessions, Devon comes to a startling conclusion: Hutch couldn’t have taken his own life.

    First lines: “Those Nutter Butters are going to need milk. Devon glared at the package of peanut butter cookies at the foot of her bed. The bright red plastic caught the light from her desk lamp, taunting her, daring her to break into the package.”

    book cover courtesy of SyndeticsThings I Can’t Forget, Miranda Kenneally (312 pages) – Kate has always been the good girl. Too good, according to some people at school—although they have no idea the guilty secret she carries. But this summer, everything is different. This summer she’s a counsellor at Cumberland Creek summer camp, and she wants to put the past behind her. This summer Matt is back as a counsellor too. He’s the first guy she ever kissed, and he’s gone from a geeky songwriter who loved The Hardy Boys to a buff lifeguard who loves to flirt – with her. Kate used to think the world was black and white, right and wrong. Turns out, life isn’t that easy.

    First lines: “Girls like me do not buy pregnancy tests. I drag my pencil down the paper, drawing tears rolling from her eyes. Girls like me sing in the church choir.”

    book cover courtesy of SyndeticsOpenly Straight, Bill Konigsberg (320 pages) – Rafe is a normal teenager from Boulder, Colorado. He plays soccer. He’s won skiing prizes. He likes to write. And, oh yeah, he’s gay. He’s been out since 8th grade, and he isn’t teased, and he goes to other high schools and talks about tolerance and stuff. And while that’s important, all Rafe really wants is to just be a regular guy. Not that GAY guy. To have it be a part of who he is, but not the headline, every single time. So when he transfers to an all-boys’ boarding school in New England, he decides to keep his sexuality a secret — not so much going back in the closet as starting over with a clean slate. But then he sees a classmate breaking down. He meets a teacher who challenges him to write his story. And most of all, he falls in love with Ben who doesn’t even know that love is possible.

    First lines: “If it were up to my dad, my entire life would be on video. Anything I do, he grabs his phone. “Opal,” he’ll yell to my mother. “Rafe is eating corn flakes. We gotta get this on film.”

    book cover courtesy of SyndeticsOut of Nowhere, Maria Padian (337 pages) – At Maquoit High School, Tom Bouchard has it made: captain and star of the soccer team, boyfriend to one of the prettiest, most popular girls, and third in his class, likely to have his pick of any college, if he ever bothers filling out his applications. But life in his idyllic small Maine town quickly gets turned upside down after the events of 9/11. Enniston has become a “secondary migration” location for Somali refugees, who are seeking a better life after their country was destroyed by war—they can no longer go home. Tom hasn’t thought much about his Somali classmates until four of them join the soccer team, including Saeed. But when Saeed’s eligibility is questioned and Tom screws up in a big way, he’s left to grapple with a culture he doesn’t understand and take responsibility for his actions.

    First lines: “It’s like he came out of nowhere. I was stuck, okay? I’ll man up to that. We were playing Marquoit High School. I mean, more than half their guys play four-season private club soccer. Olympic Development Program, that sort of thing.”

    book cover courtesy of SyndeticsBruised, Sarah Skilton (274 pages) – Imogen has always believed that her black belt in Tae Kwon Do made her stronger than everyone else–more responsible, more capable. But when she witnesses a holdup in a diner, she freezes. The gunman is shot and killed by the police. And it’s all her fault. Now she’s got to rebuild her life without the talent that made her special and the beliefs that made her strong. If only she could prove herself in a fight – a real fight – she might be able to let go of the guilt and shock. She’s drawn to Ricky, another witness to the holdup, both romantically and because she believes he might be able to give her the fight she’s been waiting for.

    First lines: “By the time my brother arrives, he can’t get to me. The cops have barricaded the diner – two blocks in all directions. blood and worse coats my hair, my face, and my clothes, sticking to me like chunks of blackberry jam. They had to cut me out of my shirt, but since they can’t cut me out of my skin, I don’t see how I’ll ever be clean.”

    Winging Your Way Through The Weekend, August 10-11

    08.08.13 | Permalink | Comments Off on Winging Your Way Through The Weekend, August 10-11

    There’s no shortage of shindigs to get you out of the house and into the streets of Wellington this weekend. Here’s a quick run-down of what we’ve circled with our highlighter.

    The New Zealand International Film Festival continues and included is the world premiere of Fantail. Rachel and Rebecca made some picks in last week’s Trailer Tuesday. Also in film this weekend is the fundraising screening of documentary Maidentrip about kiwi-born Laura Dekker’s solo adventure around the world aboard yacht Guppy. Proceeds to Wellington Ocean Sports.

    One of Wellington’s best and formerly hidden treasure troves of Zines and art, Matchbox Studios has a grand opening at its new street front location.

    The next round of New Zealand’s Got Talent auditions stop into the St James.

    Museum of Wellington City & Sea continue with their L!VE Music sessions on Sunday.

    Wellington’s gonna get a pop-up chocolate factory on Queens Wharf this weekend – YUM! If you need more convincing their website has a puppy picture.

    Newtown’s National Hockey Stadium will host matches between Capital & Southern.

    The always thought-provoking World Press Photos exhibition is in town and hanging out on Willis Street.

    If you haven’t had a chance to yet Young & Hungry is in its last weekend at Bats. It’s well worth the outing.

    In new music for the playlist this week Indie band Typhoon, from Portland Oregon, have released a sneak peak of their new album White Lighter. They’re a bit of a well kept secret and it’s not really a sneak-peak it’s a peak in entirety. If you’re a fan of indie bands like the Fleet Foxes, Beirut, Boy & Bear, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Band of Horses etc we reckon you’ll dig these guys.

    Have a good one!

    Looking forward to:

    07.08.13 | Permalink | Comments Off on Looking forward to:

    The Secret Ingredient, Stewart Lewis – “Olivia doesn’t believe in psychics. But the summer before her senior year of high school, she meets one in an elevator. ‘This summer will be pivotal,’ the psychic warns. ‘Please remember – all your choices are connected.’ Olivia loves her life in Silverlake, Los Angeles, but lately, something’s been missing. And after getting this strange advice, her world begins to change. A new job leads Olivia to a gorgeous, mysterious boy named Theo. And as Olivia cooks the recipes from a vintage cookbook she stumbles upon, she begins to wonder if the mother she’s never known might be the secret ingredient she’s been lacking. But sometimes the things we search for are the things we’ve had all along.” (goodreads.com). It is suggested that fans of Sarah Dessen and Jay Asher might enjoy this – test this theory out if you are!

    How (Not) to Find a Boyfriend, Allyson Valentine – “Sophomore Nora Fulbright is the most talented and popular new cheerleader on the Riverbend High cheer squad. Never mind that she used to be queen of the nerds—a chess prodigy who answered every question first, aced every test and repelled friends at every turn—because this year, Nora is determined to fully transition from social pupa to full blown butterfly, even if it means dumbing down her entire schedule. But when funny, sweet and very cute Adam moves to town and steals Nora’s heart with his ultra-smarts and illegally cute dimple, Nora has a problem. How can she prove to him that she’s not a complete airhead?…” (goodreads.com)

    Death, Dickinson, and the Demented Life of Frenchie Garcia, Jenny Sanchez – “Frenchie Garcia can’t come to grips with the death of Andy Cooper. Her friends didn’t know she had a crush him. And they don’t know she was the last person with him before he committed suicide. But Frenchie’s biggest concern is how she blindly helped him die that night. Frenchie’s already insane obsession with death and Emily Dickinson won’t help her understand the role she played during Andy’s ‘one night of adventure.’ But when she meets Colin, she may have found the perfect opportunity to recreate that night.” (goodreads.com) (What will Rachel make of this cover?)

    Graphic novels ‘reimagined’

    06.08.13 | Permalink | 1 Comment

    Todays post comes from our graphic novels guest star Nicola! She’s come up with a collection of graphic novels that are “re-imaginings” of characters that you’re sure to have heard of. Usually if you’ve kept half an eye on pop culture you can pick one of these books up without being completely up to date with the entire mythos. Of course, these books also reward hardcore fans, too. So what makes a good “re-imagining?” It’s not just enough to say “what if?”… the writer has to somehow make the comic more than just “Batman but a bit different.” The trick with a good “re-imagining” is to keep the core of the character, make the setting feel fully developed and not to take the obvious or easy route by ignoring the historical forces that might affect the characters.

    Here are Nicola’s four picks for the best re-imaginings:

    book cover courtesy of SyndeticsBatman : Gotham by Gaslight

    This is a fascinating take on a Victorian era Batman. The essential details are still the same; Bruce Wayne is a millionaire by day, mysterious caped crime fighter by night. But in the first part of this book, Jack the Ripper has come to Gotham, and Batman is being blamed for his crimes. In the second story, Batman fights another villain desperate to stem the tide of progress in Gotham. What’s great about this story is that it’s a lot more than just “Steampunk Batman”. While there are still some of the famous characters of the Batman universe (Alfred, Commissioner Gordon) many of the other characters are new, so it’s a fairly fresh take on Batman’s world. Although the careful reader may be able to spot the Joker cameo.

    book cover courtesy of SyndeticsSpider-Man Noir : Eyes without a face

    This, like Gotham by Gaslight, is a look at what would happen if you took a superhero out of a cotemporary setting and placed him in the past. Spider-man is working as a vigilante in New York in 1933; a city filled with gangsters and shaped by racism. This is a more adult take on the Superhero concept; Peter Parker tries to fight against evil, but he’s helpless to change the larger forces (racism and the rise of eugenics and Nazism) that threaten the people he loves. True to the noir setting, there’s no happy ending and no easy answers.

    book cover courtesy of SyndeticsMarvel 1602

    Even if you’re not a Marvel fan, you should read this book. It’s written by Neil Gaiman, and that alone should be enough to recommend it. In my opinion this is the best re-imagining of either the Marvel or the DC universe. Like it says, this book is the Marvel Universe as it would exist in 1602; but it’s so much more than that. Gaiman manages to stay true to the spirit of the fantastic Marvel characters yet keeps it from becoming too silly. All the forces that were changing the world at that time; colonialism, religious intolerance and the status of women are woven into the book. As well as being amazingly well written, the artwork is gorgeous.

    book cover courtesy of SyndeticsSuperman: Red Son

    The central concept of Superman: Red Son is so simple you wonder why no one’s ever thought of it before. What if Superman, who’s come to be a paragon of All American virtues, landed in Russia as a baby and not Kansas? Of course, this changes everything. What is so great about this story is it’s not just about Superman; it’s also about Lois Lane, Lex Luthor, Jimmy Olsen, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and the Batman and how their lives are shaped by this. Mark Millar, the writer, never reduces the concept to “Russian Superman is evil,” It also attempts to answer the question “If superman’s so powerful, why doesn’t he try to fix the world’s problems? This gives it a more complex morality than some of the ‘normal’ Superman titles.

    another time, another place:

    book cover courtesy of SyndeticsThe Laura Line, Crystal Allen (326 pages) – Thirteen-year-old Laura Dyson wants two things in life: to be accepted by her classmates and to be noticed by ultra-cute baseball star Troy Bailey. But everyone at school makes fun of her for being overweight, and Troy won’t give her a second glance. But a school assignment changes that. Laura is forced to learn the history of the slave shack on her grandmother’s property, and she discovers she comes from a line of strong African-American women. Through understanding her roots, Laura finds the self-esteem she’s been missing.

    First lines: “Sweet Mother of Teen Vogue magazine, I’m model-marvelous in this new outfit! And when the doors of the bus open like stage curtains, I pooch my lips, raise my chin, and use the school sidewalk as my runway.”

    book cover courtesy of SyndeticsA Moment Comes, Jennifer Bradbury (266 pages) – While the rest of India anxiously awaits the upcoming partition that will divide the country into two sovereign nations, eighteen-year-old Tariq focuses on his own goal: to study at Oxford. He simply must find a way in, to fulfill his grandfather’s dreams, and his own. But for a Muslim born and raised in India, there is no obvious path to England – until Tariq is offered a job, translating for one of the British cartographers stationed in India and tasked with establishing the new borders. In a flash he accepts the position, determined to use this new contact as his way to Oxford.

    First lines: “”I know you will make us proud, Tariq,” Master Ahmed calls out to me as I step onto the dusty sidewalk outside the school gates. I lift my palm to my face, fingertips to my forehead, bow. “Khuda hafiz.””

    book cover courtesy of SyndeticsMy name is Parvana, Deborah Ellis (201 pages) – On a military base in post-Taliban Afghanistan, American authorities have just imprisoned a teenaged girl found in a bombed-out school. The army major thinks she may be a terrorist working with the Taliban. The girl does not respond to questions in any language and remains silent, even when she is threatened, harassed and mistreated over several days. The only clue to her identity is a tattered shoulder bag containing papers that refer to people named Shauzia, Nooria, Leila, Asif, Hassan — and Parvana. In this long-awaited sequel to The Breadwinner Trilogy, Parvana is now fifteen years old. As she waits for foreign military forces to determine her fate, she remembers the past four years of her life. Reunited with her mother and sisters, she has been living in a village where her mother has finally managed to open a school for girls. But even though the Taliban has been driven from the government, the country is still at war, and many continue to view the education and freedom of girls and women with suspicion and fear.

    First lines: “”Is your name Parvana?” The girl in the dusty blue chador gave no response. She sat without moving on the hard metal chair and kept her eyes lowered. The cloth of the chador covered the lower half of her face.”

    book cover courtesy of SyndeticsThe Caged Graves, Dianne K. Salerni (326 pages) – 17-year-old Verity Boone expects a warm homecoming when she returns to Catawissa, Pennsylvania, in 1867, pledged to marry a man she has never met. Instead, she finds a father she barely knows and a future husband with whom she apparently has nothing in common. One truly horrifying surprise awaits her: the graves of her mother and aunt are enclosed in iron cages outside the local cemetery. Nobody in town will explain why, but Verity hears rumours of buried treasure and witchcraft. Perhaps the cages were built to keep grave robbers out … or to keep the women in. Determined to understand, Verity finds herself in a life-and-death struggle with people she trusted.

    First lines: “Even facing probable death, Private Silas Clayton couldn’t stop thinking about that leather satchel. Screams and gunfire echoed off the mountain walls in the distance. Light from burning homesteads flickered through the trees, and smoke hung over the valley, obscuring the stars.”

    book cover courtesy of SyndeticsGolden Boy, Tara Sullivan (340 pages) – Thirteen-year-old Habo has always been different— light eyes, yellow hair and white skin. Not the good brown skin his family has and not the white skin of tourists. Habo is strange and alone. His father, unable to accept Habo, abandons the family; his mother can scarcely look at him. His brothers are cruel and the other children never invite him to play. Only his sister Asu loves him well. But even Asu can’t take the sting away when the family is forced from their small Tanzanian village, and Habo knows he is to blame.

    First lines: “I am sitting under the acacia tree on the ridge when I first see them: three men, in nice clothes, coming toward our house. Their shoulders are straight and their fat bellies strain against their belts when they walk. They are the image of power.”

    book cover courtesy of SyndeticsThe Language Inside, Holly Thompson (517 pages) – Emma Karas was raised in Japan; it’s the country she calls home. But when her mother is diagnosed with breast cancer, Emma’s family moves to a town outside Lowell, Massachusetts, to stay with Emma’s grandmother while her mom undergoes treatment. Emma feels out of place in the United States, and longs to be back in Japan. At her grandmother’s urging, she volunteers in a long-term care center to help Zena, a patient with locked-in syndrome, write down her poems. There, Emma meets Samnang, another volunteer, who assists elderly Cambodian refugees. Weekly visits to the care center, Zena’s poems, dance, and noodle soup bring Emma and Samnang closer, until Emma must make a painful choice: stay in Massachusetts, or return home early to Japan.

    First lines: “third time it happens / I’m crossing the bridge / over a brown-green race of water / that slides through town / on my way to a long-term care center / to start volunteering”

    <3 Bill Cunningham

    02.08.13 | Permalink | Comments Off on <3 Bill Cunningham

    If you’re not yet a fan of Bill Cunningham, you will  be soon! I have to admit that I only encountered him for the first time a few months ago, when my workmate recommended this DVD:

    Syndetics book coverBill Cunningham New York [videorecording] / the New York Times and First Thought Films presents ; a film by Richard Press.
    For decades, Bill Cunningham “has been obsessively and inventively chronicling fashion trends and high society charity soirées for the New York Times Style section in his columns ‘On the Street’ and ‘Evening Hours.'” Presented “is a delicate, funny and often poignant portrait of a dedicated artist whose only wealth is his own humanity and unassuming grace”–Container.

    Bill Cunningham has been a regular on the New York fashion scene for over 40 years, passionately documenting fashion on the streets of New York. He bikes around the city on a daily basis, photographing men and women wearing interesting and beautiful outfits, and collates them into a spread such as this one, which are published weekly in the New York Times in his two columns ‘On the Street’ and ‘Evening Hours’. He’s become famous in his own right, as much for his unassuming manner as his unconventional attidtude toward fashion: “I’m not interested in celebrities, with their free dresses. I’m interested in clothes.”

    Bill Cunningham New York ($4 for one week) was such a good watch!! For me, that was mostly because he is such an incredibly likeable person and is a completely unique personality – he is delightfully old-fashioned in many ways and he shies away completely from any type of fame or limelight. He’s in it purely for the pleasure of clothing and photography, and I’m not sure how many fashion photographers we can truly say that about! In true Bill Cunningham style, he doesn’t have an instagram or twitter account or even a blog of his own. There is a facebook page you can follow; it isn’t run by Bill Cunningham but by an adoring fan who links to his spreads from The New York Times. Check it out here!! There are also some video clips; made up of his own photographs and a voice-over giving Bill’s commentary on what he’s photographed, they’re suuuuuch a delightful watch!!. See the line-up here, or watch the most recent one below. I swear, you will be a Bill Cunningham fan in no time!!
