As an adult book, Sam Quinones's Dreamland took the world by storm, winning the NBCC Award for General Nonfiction and hitting at least a dozen Best Book of the Year lists. Now, adapted for the first time for a young adult audience, this compelling reporting explains the roots of the current opiate crisis. In 1929, in the blue-collar city of Portsmouth, Ohio, a company built a swimming pool the size of a football field; named Dreamland, it became the vital center of the community. Now, addiction has devastated Portsmouth, as it has hundreds of small rural towns and suburbs across America. How that happened is the riveting story of Dreamland. Quinones explains how the rise of the prescription drug OxyContin, a miraculous and extremely addictive painkiller pushed by pharmaceutical companies, paralleled the massive influx of black tar heroin--cheap, potent, and originating from one small county on Mexico's west coast, independent of any drug cartel. Introducing a memorable cast of characters--pharmaceutical pioneers, young Mexican entrepreneurs, narcotics investigators, survivors, teens, and parents--Dreamland is a revelatory account of the massive threat facing America and its heartland.

Arnold Joint is a middle-aged jovial detective working for the South Africa Police Department. For the last three years he’s been haunted by the unsolved murder of Samantha, his sister, and supported by his boss and colleagues he got by and tried to focus on other important cases. But the picture of his murdered sibling is unexpectedly and painfully brought up from his memory when the body of a young beautiful woman, along with her lover’s, is found exactly in the same condition as Samatha’s: a clean cut separating her head from her torso and the mysterious tattoo of a rose inked on her skin in a very intimate position. This time Detective Joint won’t stop until he finds the truth and will soon find himself entangled in a dangerous plot that involves so much more than he can imagine. When Nick Scott receives the call from a distraught Veronica Bings, the last thing he expects is to learn that his friend Mark, a pioneer in the development of Virtual Reality Software and Veronica’s husband, has been killed. But Nick, ex Major in the Royal Marines and founder of Executive Decision, an international security company, knows how to take the matter into his own hands and immediately starts digging into Mark’s murder, discovering the potential and the menace hidden in the depths of Virtual Reality, a parallel electronic world connecting every device with internet access. Matt Carbutt’s debut novel is an engaging, dark, layered thriller in which nothing is as it appears, a fast-paced intriguing spy story that will manage to captivate the lovers of this literary genre with every page. Matt Carbutt was born in England and immigrated to South Africa at a very young age. He currently lives in Noordhoek, Cape Town, South Africa with his wife, his young daughter, and Justice, the family timber wolf. Over the years, due to his business commitments in the electronic security industry, Matt has travelled extensively throughout Africa, gaining invaluable knowledge and experiences from the mysterious African continent. When he isn’t writing you’ll find him sailing Moonshadow II or plotting his next novel. Dreamland, an adult thriller, is his debut novel.

Faced with real world scenarios to either succeed by doing what's necessary or perish with failure, they must learn to work together if they expect to survive. Guiding the way, and driven by a need to lead by example, ex U.S. Army Intelligence Agent Brad Miller puts his own life above all others and obtains the respect of a psychologist, a geek, a mentor, a dancer and a photojournalist. These people might be the last he ever sees, and the last friends he might ever make, as he attempts to free them from this strange place.

"Barbie's Magical Adventure in Dreamland" shows how powerful dreams, kindness, and bravery can be. It reminds us that the world is full of amazing things just waiting to be found by people who believe, and that the keys to amazing experiences and lasting memories are inside our hearts. Story Begins: Barbie was a little girl who lived in a cute little town. People knew her for having beautiful golden hair, bright blue eyes, and a kind heart. Barbie stood out among the simple homes and friendly neighbors in the town as a symbol of modesty and purity. Barbie had golden hair that fell down her back in waves that sparkled like a river of light. As the light caught on her and turned into a beautiful halo, she looked like a living, breathing sign of hope. Her bright blue eyes sparkled with interest, like two sapphires watching over the secrets of the world. But what made Barbie different from the other kids in town was her heart. She had a giving heart that touched everyone she met. She could make anyone feel special and better, even on the worst days, with her kind words and warm smile. It was Barbie's job to show that even in a world that seemed rude and rushed, good manners could still win. The one thing that made Barbie different, though, was something that not many people knew about her: she could go to Dreamland, a magical world that appeared only in her dreams. The hamlet would go to sleep every night, and Barbie's travels would begin. Dreamland was a place where dream rules did not apply. It stretched out in front of her like a beautiful tapestry in her thoughts. It was a world where the trees whispered secrets and the animals spoke in riddles and wisecracks. The sky was purple and turquoise. In Dreamland, Barbie can be anyone and go anywhere. It's a place where anything is possible and where the soul can find comfort. Her adventures at night were amazing. She would soar through the sky on a shiny dragon, feeling the rush of freedom in her blood as the wind pulled her hair back. She would have tea parties with rabbits that could talk. The rabbits' laughter would sound like a happy symphony in a field of brightly colored flowers. She liked to wander around in beautiful forests where streams sang lullabies to long-lost hopes and trees whispered stories of past adventures. Barbie, on the other hand, found the animals in Dreamland to be very interesting. There was Lumina, a pretty fairy whose wings sparkled like stars at dusk. She would teach Barbie about the night sky by telling her stories about constellations and the music that the stars played. Nimbus, a sneaky cloud fairy who can change shape at will, came next. Nimbus could change into a dolphin to explore the depths of the dream seas or a kite to take Barbie high above the clouds. Barbie and Nimbus would go on exciting adventures together. She made new friends every night, and each one was more creative than the last. She laughed with kind giants whose hearts were as big as the sky, danced with fire sprites whose bright flames lit up the night sky, and talked with wise old owls who taught her ancient secrets.
