"A bold and subversive retelling of the goddess's story," this #1 New York Times bestseller "manages to be both epic and intimate in its scope, recasting the most infamous female figure from the Odyssey as a hero in her own right" (Alexandra Alter, The New York Times). In the house of Helios, god of the sun and mightiest of the Titans, a daughter is born. But Circe is a strange child--not powerful, like her father, nor viciously alluring like her mother. Turning to the world of mortals for companionship, she discovers that she does possess power--the power of witchcraft, which can transform rivals into monsters and menace the gods themselves.Threatened, Zeus banishes her to a deserted island, where she hones her occult craft, tames wild beasts and crosses paths with many of the most famous figures in all of mythology, including the Minotaur, Daedalus and his doomed son Icarus, the murderous Medea, and, of course, wily Odysseus.But there is danger, too, for a woman who stands alone, and Circe unwittingly draws the wrath of both men and gods, ultimately finding herself pitted against one of the most terrifying and vengeful of the Olympians. To protect what she loves most, Circe must summon all her strength and choose, once and for all, whether she belongs with the gods she is born from, or the mortals she has come to love.With unforgettably vivid characters, mesmerizing language and page-turning suspense, Circe is a triumph of storytelling, an intoxicating epic of family rivalry, palace intrigue, love and loss, as well as a celebration of indomitable female strength in a man's world.

This New York City Gifted & Talented Assessment Program Practice Test for Kindergarten entry will help prepare your child for this new entry test and demystify the test content. The New York City Department of Education has implemented significant changes to the Gifted & Talented (G&T) admissions test for the 2013/2014 admissions year. Students wishing to apply to G&T programs must now take a test that consists of Non-Verbal and Verbal tests vastly different from previous years. The Nonverbal test measures reasoning and problem-solving skills through Pattern Completion, Reasoning By Analogy, Serial Reasoning, and Spatial Visualization Question Types. This test is worth 2/3 of your child's total score. The Verbal test measures verbal comprehension and verbal reasoning through Aural Reasoning, Following Directions, and Arithmetic Reasoning Question Types. This test is worth 1/3 of your child's total score. Just like the official New York City Gifted & Talented test, this practice test consists of Non-Verbal and Verbal tests with questions structured and presented similar to the actual test. Our Performance Guidelines will help identify your child's strong and weak areas to best prepare for test day. Aristotle Circle's goal is to give parents choices and expert advice to make informed decisions. In addition to practice tests, we offer test preparation materials, child assessments, tutoring, and expert advisory services to help navigate the admissions and education process, from pre-school to post-graduate level.
