Contributions by Megan Brown, Jill Coste, Sara K. Day, Rachel Dean-Ruzicka, Rebekah Fitzsimmons, Amber Gray, Roxanne Harde, Tom Jesse, Heidi Jones, Kaylee Jangula Mootz, Leah Phillips, Rachel L. Rickard Rebellino, S. R. Toliver, Jason Vanfosson, Sarah E. Whitney, and Casey Alane Wilson While critical and popular attention afforded to twenty-first-century young adult literature has exponentially increased in recent years, classroom materials and scholarship have remained static in focus and slight in scope. Twilight, The Hunger Games, The Fault in Our Stars, and The Hate U Give overwhelm conversations among scholars and critics—but these are far from the only texts in need of analysis. Beyond the Blockbusters: Themes and Trends in Contemporary Young Adult Fiction offers a necessary remedy to this limiting perspective, bringing together essays about the many subgenres, themes, and character types that have until now been overlooked. The collection tackles a diverse range of topics—modern updates to the marriage plot; fairy tale retellings in dystopian settings; stories of extrajudicial police killings and racial justice. The approaches are united, though, by a commitment to exploring the large-scale generic and theoretical structures at work in each set of texts. As a collection, Beyond the Blockbusters is an exciting entryway into a field that continues to grow and change even as its works captivate massive audiences. It will prove a crucial addition to the library of any scholar or instructor of young adult literature.

Native to Europe, Vespula vulgaris, the common wasp, has been inadvertently transported around the globe - usually travelling quietly, unseen, sleeping in people's cargo. Today in New Zealand, the highest known wasp densities have up to 40 nests per hectare. Though we know them as pests, wasps are amazingly efficient predators with some exceptionally smart behaviours. Vespula vulgaris excels as both a hunter and an invader. Some people find them pretty tasty too. In this book, entomologist Phil Lester describes the many fascinating and lesser-known sides of the common wasp. He asks: how can we manage wasps? Can we ever learn to live with them? What can they teach us about the challenges we face for pest control? With warmth, wit and intelligence, "The Vulgar Wasp" tells the story of the common wasp and its impact on us and our biodiversity.

Beautiful Rose MacKenzie was a woman with every advantage that money could buy. From her penthouse apartment high above New York City to her exquisite collection of art to her private fleet of planes, Rose had the world at her fingertips. She was the heiress to the Royal Coachman financial empire, and she had the business acumen to follow in her grandfather’s footsteps. But Rose’s glamorous world was beginning to wear thin. Where was the romance, the excitement, the passion everyone talked about? Dan Masters seemed to answer the call. With an intriguing trail of blue roses and an unforgettable kiss, he insinuated himself into Rose’s life. Sexy and mysterious, Dan knew details about her childhood, he family—even her favorite foods. But he also seemed to know the woman inside; he understood her hopes and fears, her dreams and regrets, her hidden passions. Rose couldn’t help but be attracted to Dan, but how could she trust her heart? His insights were spooky, his determination frightening. Besides, modern women did not fall in love with strangers who blazed into town with a knowing grin and a fistful of dollars. She would have to keep her distance. She would have to ignore the glimmer in his eyes, the lilt in his smile, the warmth of his touch. And most of all, she would have to hide her heart from this man who was so determined to bring a tender rose to full blossom.
