Identical twins Jack and Dave Bennett enjoy nothing better than a rowdy night out in London -- listening to hot jazz, hoisting a few pints, flirting with girls and then finishing off the evening by roughing up a stranger. But one night they ambush the wrong victim, a young black man who fights back. Suddenly bottles break and a knife is drawn, and when it's over, Jack stumbles home alone -- only to awaken the next morning to discover his brother's bed empty and policemen at the door. The police are investigating a fatal car accident that left two people dead, their bodies burned beyond recognition. One of the dead was apparently the car's owner, a young black doctor, but the only clue to the second corpse's identity is a knife engraved with Dave Bennett's name and address. And no words are spoken of a man found slain in an alley on the other side of town. With his life brutally upended, Jack finds that his search for answers is drawing him closer to the dead doctor's beautiful sister, Michelle, and causing him to question everything he's ever believed about race, justice, family, and the violent urban world around him

A little girl and an extraordinary teddy bear share the secrets of a wondrous, sometimes puzzling world in this charming children's tale that celebrates diversity, from the acclaimed author of the schoolroom classic To Sir, With Love Lisbeth has a new best friend, her toy bear, Billingsly, who has one perfectly formed ear that is ideal for hearing what goes on in the world around him. But with his left ear, which is misshapen, he listens to Lisbeth alone. When she speaks into Billingsly's crinkled ear, Billingsly speaks back, though he'll talk to no one but Lisbeth because adults would never listen to him the way she does, and other children tend to shun him because he is different. When Lisbeth is in school, Billingsly enjoys adventures from his perch on the windowsill in her bedroom with animals roaming the outside world and magical creatures like the Tooth Fairy and the other bear in the mirror. But his greatest adventures take place when he is in Lisbeth's arms, for nothing is more magical than a little girl's love. Filled with wit and wonder, Billingsly is the tale of an extraordinary friendship that is sure to enchant children of all ages, and adults who are young at heart
