Raised in an orphanage since birth, sixteen-year-old Tony Cole has seen more disappointment than success—but his life changes forever after he meets billionaire and philanthropist Jonathan Stuyvesant. Jonathon spends twelve years mentoring Tony, helping him to become a financial wizard. After he dies, he leaves Tony a vast fortune—with a catch. During the reading of his last will and testament, Jonathon issues a challenge to Tony—to become the next man to acquire a wealth of over three billion dollars. Suddenly overwhelmed by the curious reporters who surround him after the news is announced, Tony decides to leave on a vacation to sort things out and determine on his course of action. A brilliant and shrewd businessman, Tony is motivated by the challenge and soon begins building an empire like no other. But he is soon distracted from his goals by two woman—a married woman, out of his reach, whom he loves deeply but cannot have, and the beautiful movie star whose love distracts him from his obsession with the first. In this intriguing tale of high finance, joy, and tragedy, Tony attempts to grapple with his emotions, but soon realizes that love has more power over the course of his life than he ever realized.

A new fantasy classic from the Newbery Medal winning and New York Times bestselling author of THE GIRL WHO DRANK THE MOON Stone-in-the-Glen, once a lovely town, has fallen on hard times. Fires, floods, and other calamities have caused the townsfolk to lose their library, their school, their park, and all sense of what it means to be generous, and kind. The people put their faith in the Mayor, a dazzling fellow who promises he alone can help. After all, he is a famous dragon slayer. (At least, no one has seen a dragon in his presence.) Only the clever orphans of the Orphan House and the kindly Ogress at the edge of town can see how dire the town's problems are. When one of the orphans goes missing from the Orphan House, all eyes turn to the Ogress. The orphans, though, know this can't be: the Ogress, along with a flock of excellent crows, secretly delivers gifts to the people of Stone-in-the-Glen. But how can the orphans tell the story of the Ogress's goodness to people who refuse to listen? And how can they make their deluded neighbours see the real villain in their midst? The orphans have heard a whisper that they will 'save the day', but just how, they will have to find out ...

“They’re not dead, are they?” The officer’s body visibly slumped as he delivered his final nod. From that July day in 1968 on, the Morris family became the Morris orphans: ten children who attracted nationwide attention, and a trust fund that didn’t bring out the best in those who fostered them. Kathi, the oldest, was only seventeen when her parents were killed by a drunk driver. This is her story—behind the headlines—of when the Morris orphans only had their mutual loss and each other.
