As far as Jake Weir is concerned, he’s living the high life. Paranormal Properties, his parents’ ghost-hunting show, has been picked up by the popular Scream Channel, and if their new high-rise apartment on San Francisco Bay is anything to go by, the future is definitely looking bright. However, that future depends on one important thing: the success of Paranormal Properties’ first official episode. If Jake and his family can prove themselves with an exciting, successful premiere, they get to stay with the Scream Channel – if not, well, Jake doesn’t want to imagine going back to the desperate life they used to live. To succeed, the Weirs are going to have to tackle their biggest case yet. Old, infamous, and abandoned for decades, the Balthazar Hotel is thought to be the eternal prison of its inhabitants, victims of a terrible fire that nearly destroyed the hotel in 1921. The Balthazar holds many secrets, and many memories, and as the Weirs investigate the mysteries surrounding the hotel in a race to complete the first episode, they quickly learn that things are much more complicated, and more dangerous, than they seem. Even with the help of his obstinate best friend Tank, and the fearless gangster ghost Frank Barrone, Jake starts to wonder if saving Paranormal Properties is worth it, if they may not even get out of the Balthazar Hotel alive.

This is the story of how I died…repeatedly. J has been cursed for all eternity. In her very first life on Earth, she made the mistake of falling in love with her sister’s betrothed… and it was all downhill from there. In revolutionary France, J and the other members of Marie Antoinette’s court are forced into hiding, desperate to escape a wild uprising out for their blood. From there, she is reincarnated in America in the late 1800s, where she disguises herself as a man in the Confederate army and is surrounded by carnage and blood. In Austria in the 1930s, she became the only hope for her Jewish friends’ survival against the Nazi storm. Now, as a 21st century teenager, she faces mountains of extracurricular volunteer work and a ruthless bully all on her quest to get into a competitive college. Talk about a bummer. Beside her in each life, Sebastian finds himself on the wrong side of every battle. Always a soldier, he makes it his mission time and time again to rescue J with the hope that maybe someday they’ll get the chance to be together, if only that were possible. They say that everything happens for a reason, but can J and Sebastian find a way to break their curse and finally make a life together?

Sometimes boy meets girl, and the stars align, and their future is laid out neatly before them. Together forever. Meant to be. But Max and Loren are not one of those couples. Seventeen-year-old Max DuPont is on the verge of becoming a ward of the state and foster kid. Contrary to expectations, Max is not from the "wrong" side of town. He's from a good home in a nice neighborhood, but his mother left after his father lost his job and turned to drinking. Max has been struggling to keep his head above water ever since. All he wants is to survive his senior year, play hockey, and move on to college. When his dad lands himself in jail, Max has no choice but to accept an offer to live with his father's do-gooder attorney, Mr. Larssi. The only contingency is that Max must stay far away from Larssi's beautiful teenage daughter Loren. Loren is aware that she's had every opportunity in her young adult life—at least, that is, every opportunity her parents designed for her. She excels in academics at a competitive prep school, she never parties, she never dates, and she's a budding ballerina and major hopeful for a Juilliard scholarship. But since her best friend Lily died tragically three months ago, Loren is lost. She knows just how precious life is. But she has no idea how to make the best of it. How can she live—really live—with obsessive parents breathing down her neck…and inviting the only guy who never noticed her to live right under their roof? Loren's first step in living her own life might be to get Max to notice her. Max's only chance at a solid future without foster care is to keep his distance from Loren. But their chemistry is undeniable. And they can't fight the odds forever…

Livia has never felt like she fits in. As normal as it sounds, Livia is anything but ordinary. She can feel every emotion of every single person around her, and it’s maddening. In pursuit of some psychic quiet, she moves with her family from New York City to Whidbey Island in the lush and sleepy Pacific Northwest. But when a horseback riding accident in her new home gives her a broken leg that heals in a day, she finds that another unexplainable ability has manifested, and her life isn’t about to get any easier. Adam has no problem fitting in and making friends. In fact, he’s the top of the school, the boy everyone knows and loves. However, people only see what he allows them to. No one knows what Adam is truly capable of. After witnessing Livia’s accident, Adam sees something intriguing in her quick recovery, something that gives him hope that he’s not alone. Adam is the only one whose emotions Livia can’t read. Afraid of not knowing what goes on behind his dark eyes, Livia decides to keep him at a distance. Yet the more she tries to ignore him, the more alluring he becomes, and while their personal quests for identity will inevitably bring them closer together, it is the confirmation of what they really are that threatens to tear them apart. Resilient, told in alternating point of views, is a gripping story of suspense, love and romance, in which two teenagers face the consequences of being anything but normal.

Ein einsam gelegenes Ferienhaus. Tief unten das Tal mit seinen würfelkleinen Häusern, eine Serpentinenstraße führt hinauf. Das kalte Blauweiß der Gletscher, schroffer Granit, die Wälder im Dunst – es ist Dezember, Vorweihnachtszeit. Ein junges Ehepaar mit Kind hat sich für ein paar Tage dieses komfortable Haus gemietet, doch so richtig aus der Welt sind sie nicht: Das Kind erzählt wirre Geschichten aus dem Kindergarten, die Frau tippt Nachrichten auf dem Telefon, und der Mann – ein Drehbuchautor, von dem ein Produzent den zweiten Teil seiner erfolgreichsten Komödie erwartet – schreibt Ideen und Szenen in sein Notizbuch. Aber mehr und mehr notiert er auch anderes – eheliche Spannungen, Zwistigkeiten, vor allem die seltsamen Dinge, die rings um ihn geschehen. Denn mit dem Haus stimmt etwas nicht. Daniel Kehlmanns phantastische Erzählung ist im doppelten Wortsinn unheimlich, die Spirale in den Abgrund entwickelt einen starken Sog – umso mehr, als dem Schrecken etwas zur Seite gestellt wird: die wechselnden Stimmungen in der Familie, das Nebeneinander von Liebe und Gereiztheit, die Sorge um das Kind. «Das Geheimnis ist, dass man sich ja doch liebt.» Ist es so? Allmählich verschwimmen die Konturen, und der Boden beginnt zu wanken.
