Albatross
He was music, everything else was noise.
Everyone at Tess's new school warns her that Micah is bad news-a heartbreaker. And a girl named Daisy is acting like she owns him. Still, Tess can't ignore her attraction to this brooding, brilliant, friendless emo guy who can turn on the charm-or heart-shredding scorn-at a moment's notice. Starting over in a new town after her parents' split isn't easy for Tess, and Micah feels like her first real connection. But then their bond suddenly feels like shackles.
Caught in an obsessive triangle of jealousy and codependence, can Tess learn to break away and find herself again?
"Taut and emotionally wrenching . . . I couldn't put it down. Josie Bloss is an author to watch."-Meg Cabot, author of The Princess Diaries and the Airhead series

Albatross: Their World, Their Ways
The magic and misfortune of the world's greatest migrating bird.
Albatross are best known for their enormous wingspan and global migrations. They are also the subject of intense scientific scrutiny. Recent DNA studies have revealed that there may not be just 13, but 21 to 25 albatross species. With all but two of them endangered, the albatross may disappear just as we are discovering more about it.
Tui De Roy and Mark Jones set out in a 43-foot sailboat to cross the world's oceans in search of the albatross. They weathered storms, finally arriving to camp on barren landfalls, where they studied and photographed these fascinating birds. Albatross features the very best writing and research on these extraordinary creatures. The book includes a breathtaking photographic portfolio, a series of essays by leading experts, and a natural history section with detailed information on each species.
Along with commentary on the authors' adventures, topics include:
Size and population distribution
Biology and recent DNA discoveries
Food and reproduction
Breeding sites and courtship behavior
Albatross in exploration, exploitation, myth and legend
Migratory routes and the mysteries of migration
Conservation threats and status.
Albatross is an impassioned, authoritative and richly illustrated study of a magnificent creature.
