Tell Us 5 Things About Your Book: A Shakespeare Scholar Turned Nazi Hunter
Jason Fagone talks about “The Woman Who Smashed Codes: A True Story of Love, Spies, and the Unlikely Heroine Who Outwitted America’s Enemies.”
By John Williams

“In “The Woman Who Smashed Codes,” Jason Fagone recounts the stranger-than-fiction story of how the 23-year-old Smith was hired in 1916, along with other scholars, by an eccentric tycoon who wanted to find secret messages in the work of Shakespeare. Those messages didn’t exist, but within a year Smith was recruited into a wartime code-breaking project.”

21 Proms by 21 authors

In the spirit of My True Love Gave to Me, some of the biggest names in YA take on one of the biggest nights in any high-schooler’s life: Prom.

It’s supposed to be one of the best nights of your life. Or, at least, you’re supposed to have a good time. But what if you’d rather be going with your best friend’s date than your own? What if a sinister underground society of students has spiked the punch? What if your date turns out to be more of a frog than a prince?

In this anthology, 21 of the funniest, most imaginative writers today create their own kind of prom stories. Some are triumphs. Some are disasters. But each one is a night you’ll never forget.

Now, with a stunning new look!
