Octavia Boone S Big Questions About Life The Universe And Everything from the Author: Rebecca Rupp. After her parents find clashing answers to life’s big questions, it’s time for Octavia to make some choices of her own in this poignant, funny, thought-provoking novel. Octavia’s best friend, Andrew, wants to know why time runs forward instead of backward, or if it’s possible to talk to an alien jellyfish. Octavia has much bigger questions on her mind: Why do bad things happen, like Hurricane Katrina and 9/11? What is the meaning of life? Is there a God? Octavia’s artist father, Boone, is convinced that Henry David Thoreau holds the key. Meanwhile, her mother, Ray, has always been seeking the larger meaning of life—until now. Not only have Octavia’s parents come up with different answers to the big questions, but their answers are threatening to tear her family apart. Could it be that some questions are too big to have just one answer? Could it be that the universe is far wider than Octavia’s—or perhaps anyone’s—views of it?

After Eli from the Author: Rebecca Rupp. Some people die heroically, others accidentally. When Daniel Anderson’s older brother dies, he wonders which category Eli’s death falls into. In an attempt to understand, Danny creates a Book of the Dead — an old binder that he fills with details about dead people, how they died, and, most important, for what purpose. Time passes, and eventually Daniel is prompted to look up from his notebook of death and questions to make new friends and be swept into their imaginings. With gentle humor and genuine emotion, Rebecca Rupp examines the questions that arise following a profound loss and the moments that start life rolling again.

from the Author: Фредерік Пол. Брама відкривала шлях до всіх скарбів Усесвіту… і до всіх його несусвітніх жахіть. Коли проспектор Роб Броудгед досяг Брами на космічному кораблі гічі, він вирішив, що знає, який рейс принесе йому щастя. Три рейси потому Робінетт Броудгед став відомим і казково багатим. Але йому випало стикнутися з подорожжю… всередину самого себе, що стала ще небезпечнішою і страшнішою, аніж та жахлива мандрівка крізь міжзоряний простір, у яку він уклепався!
