First generation Haitian-American Henri Haltiwanger is charming, and he knows it. It's his senior year at the prestigious FATE Academy High School in NYC, and the popular, hard-working debate star has his sights set on Columbia University. He'll do just about anything to get in, including being blackmailed by his "intense" neighbor and fellow FATE student--Corrine Troy--into helping her become a social butterfly, lest she reveal the secret behind his dog walking business. With fun, relatable characters who you'll root for from start to finish, this YA rom-com is a funny, heartfelt (and, yes, charming) depiction of the stresses and joys of senior year.

Published: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt - October 6th, 2020

This beautifully designed book is your guide to all cities, and often overlooked elements that comprise them. From the seemingly mundane (streetlights, property limits) to the wonderfully weird (inflatable figures, fictitious map entries), this book takes you through the fascinating stories behind the design and architecture of the city components we see every day, yet rarely stop to ponder. Additionally, the fun doesn't stop once you turn the last page--the book was written by the creators of the 99% Invisible podcast, where you can continue to learn about the thought behind the unnoticed.
