What will be in the permanent record of your life? What will you be held accountable for when the end arrives? The answer is: everything. Lily Taylor is born a precocious child with an affinity for nature. Her guardian angel watches over her with pride and affection as she grows to appreciate the wonders of God's world, vowing only to intercede in her actions and thoughts as the Master permits. As she encounters more and more adversity however, it becomes clear that Satan is beginning to work in her life and she must face the choice of which path to take. In the face of an abusive husband set on turning the world against her, Lily begins to rely on the counsel from her spiritual counterpart. By the time she encounters a family member succumbing to demonic forces, and the marriage of her daughter, which is eerily similar to her own, Lily has girded herself with every weapon her angel can provide her with and fights valiantly against the negative influences in her life. For better or worse, her choices, her actions, and her words are being recorded by the angel watching over her, and chronicled in the life she leads. Join Gretchen Olnhausen in discovering what The Permanent Record will contain.

A New York Times bestseller! “Smart and funny…warm and rewarding.” —Booklist (starred review) “A compelling and quirky tale of love and negotiating early adulthood in New York City.” —School Library Journal From the New York Times bestselling author of Emergency Contact, which Rainbow Rowell called “smart and funny,” comes a “captivating” (The New York Times) romance about how social media influences relationships every day. On paper, college dropout Pablo Rind doesn’t have a whole lot going for him. His graveyard shift at a twenty-four-hour deli in Brooklyn is a struggle. Plus, he’s up to his eyeballs in credit card debt. Never mind the state of his student loans. Pop juggernaut Leanna Smart has enough social media followers to populate whole continents. The brand is unstoppable. She graduated from child stardom to become an international icon, and her adult life is a queasy blur of private planes, step-and-repeats, aspirational hotel rooms, and strangers screaming for her just to notice them. When Leanna and Pablo meet at 5:00 a.m. at the bodega in the dead of winter it’s absurd to think they’d be A Thing. But as they discover who they are, who they want to be, and how to defy the deafening expectations of everyone else, Lee and Pab turn to each other. Which, of course, is when things get properly complicated.

The Sunday Times top ten bestseller. Edward Snowden, the man who risked everything to expose the US government’s system of mass surveillance, reveals for the first time the story of his life, including how he helped to build that system and what motivated him to try to bring it down. In 2013, twenty-nine-year-old Edward Snowden shocked the world when he broke with the American intelligence establishment and revealed that the United States government was secretly pursuing the means to collect every single phone call, text message, and email. The result would be an unprecedented system of mass surveillance with the ability to pry into the private lives of every person on earth. Six years later, Snowden reveals for the very first time how he helped to build this system and why he was moved to expose it. Spanning the bucolic Beltway suburbs of his childhood and the clandestine CIA and NSA postings of his adulthood, Permanent Record is the extraordinary account of a bright young man who grew up online – a man who became a spy, a whistleblower, and, in exile, the Internet’s conscience. Written with wit, grace, passion, and an unflinching candor, Permanent Record is a crucial memoir of our digital age. 'A riveting account . . . Reads like a literary thriller' - New York Times
