From the Publisher

In this spirited exploration of strength and personality, a fabulous NYC teen knows he’s destined for greatness—if only he can survive his first job.

Carlos Duarte knows that he’s fabulous. He’s got a better sense of style than half the fashionistas in New York City, and he can definitely apply makeup like nobody’s business. He may only be in high school, but when he lands the job of his dreams—makeup artist at the FeatureFace counter in Macy’s—he's sure that he’s finally on his way to great things.
     But the makeup artist world is competitive and cutthroat, and for Carlos to reach his dreams, he'll have to believe in himself more than ever.

Why Uncle Sam Wants to Know How Many LGBT People Are in America

FOR CENTURIES, BEING LESBIAN, gay, bisexual or transgender in America meant hiding at least part of who you were. The stigma traces as far back as the colonial era, when sodomy was a capital crime. The culture has shifted over time, and recent decades have brought a rapid social transformation. Today, as the LGBT population moves into its full and equal place in public life, more officials are asking an old question with new urgency: Just how many LGBT Americans are there? Many experts believe that we need a full accounting of the nation’s LGBT population and how they live for a host of legal

The New York Antiquarian Book Fair Enters the 21st Century at Last

The New York Antiquarian Book Fair just left town after three days of bibliomania in the Park Avenue Armory. The affair is a singular event: more than 200 booksellers from the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America (ABAA) and the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB) ship the very best of their stock to the Armory, set up a mini-museum, and try to go home with empty boxes. This is the Book Fair’s 57th year in New York, and every year the definition of the antiquarian book extends further beyond the print and manuscript codex, the standard fare for the buttoned-up and b
