There is no throwing but rejections work exactly like exceptions, you just use. My point is, not every Promise library throws that error, and the need to throw it is not per spec, but it's rather your idea to do so. Thanks for the answers though, and especially for the tap thingy - couldn't understand anything from the API reference :. That isn't a thrown error but an unhandled rejection. Good luck with a promise library that swallows errors. Well what's the difference between these two? Even in the code there's a throw statement.. Unhandled rejections seems like a type of error to me?

If you can, please explain what's the difference, as I couldn't see one. Don't get me wrong buddy, I'm not arguing which one is better or not - I just want to find the difference and understand why and what should I use :.

Any throw statement when using promises results in promise rejections. Rejections are exactly like exceptions, except they work for both asynchronous and synchronous code. Only the synchronous exceptions would show up in console, if you forgot to check for err , you would continue to parse the file as if the reading succeeded but it didn't. And the first try catch block doesn't even do anything because it only works synchronously.

Promises simplify this by allowing you to use. Petka, at the end of the day, I get exception thrown into my console. Yes, it is from rejection, and it can handle asynchronous errors, and all that stuff.

My problem is that errors make code not working properly, especially when not caught. And I don't want that actually I can't afford it from business side of the job. I don't want to think nor compare asynchronous and synchronous execution, as I prefer to use values for knowing what's up, rather than throwing everything in the air or call it reject, I don't mind, as long as it has throw statement. Thanks for the patience and your time - I really got to understand how things are working now.

And I'm thankful! Your code is not working properly if you get exception in console, you can hide it but it just makes your application impossible to debug because you lose so much information that you get when it's logged to console. Your code is already not working, the exception in console is only helping you debug it. So you have a some kind of serious fundamental misunderstanding here actually. Everything starting from the point that a mysql query with no results is not an error. And I must write if statement everywhere I need to know the result which I don't want , and catch everywhere which again I don't want.

I just want to say "hey, my user visited this page, increase it's counter if possible please". And I didn't want to raise an exception which I needed if I wanted to know the result - optional. So if I want to know the result, I must throw exception rejection , which means I must catch it everywhere , no matter if I need it or not. If you don't care about an operation like increasing the user counter failing, then handling the error is simply using an empty catch handler matching Promise.

Then everyone reading the code understands that the intent is to ignore any possible error. Skip to content.

The images of friendship, loyalty, and self-sacrifice—and the blue birds themselves--will stay imprinted in your mind long after reading it.

A beautiful piece of historical fiction. Caroline Starr Rose's novel in verse is wonderfully researched and well-crafted. This would pair beautifully with Michael Dorris' Morning Girl - another favorite. Mar 14, Melanie rated it it was amazing. I grew up learning about the colony, and wondering what had happened to them, and especially what had happened to the children.

This incredible story asks all of those questions and more, weaving the mystery of the Lost Colony into an intimate tale of friendship and what it truly means to be family.

This is a middle grade read not to be missed. Mar 26, Suze Lavender rated it it was amazing. Alis has traveled from London to the New World. After a long journey by boat they arrive at the island Roanoke. It's and long distance communication isn't easy, which is why nobody on the ship knew something happened to the Englishmen who were already staying on the island. The atmosphere between the English and the Roanoke tribe on the island is tense.

Alis loves Roanoke, she's happy with the clean air, the birds and the beauty of nature. She's also befriended a girl from the Roanoke tribe, Kimi. They can't understand each other, because they don't speak the same language, but there's a deep connection that makes them very close. Both Kimi and Alis have lost someone very dear to them and their friendship brings them comfort. When the situation between the English and the Roanoke tribe becomes even worse Alis has to make a difficult choice. Caroline Star Rose's sentences are all beautiful, they're giving the story a genuine and lively character.

Kimi and Alis have their own distinct voices and I love the way the author has translated their thoughts and feelings in free-verse. The friendship almost seems impossible, but the two girls find a way to meet each other. I think it's amazing how this historical situation has been the setting of such an impressive story of kinship and family.

This book teaches the reader something in such an enjoyable way. Because of the political situation the girls can't openly spend time together, but because of each other they have to find a way to work around that, there's no other choice. The friendship between the two girls is so sweet and delicate, which in my opinion is the strongest point of the story. I loved this book and will definitely read it again and again. Mar 16, Chelsea Couillard-Smith rated it liked it Shelves: middle-grade-fiction. Caroline Starr Rose brings the Roanoke mystery to life in this accessible slice of historical fiction.

Alis, a newly arrived settler from England, and Kimi, a member of the local Roanoke tribe, find friendship in spite of the conflict between the adults in their communities. I wasn't bowled over by this book - Kimi and Alis are quick to call themselves friends but this reader felt that the narrative lacked any real explanation for this or any sense of connection between the two.

Additionally, ne Caroline Starr Rose brings the Roanoke mystery to life in this accessible slice of historical fiction. Additionally, neither girl comes across as a particularly strong personality, and the plot follows fairly predictable paths similar to Helen Frost's Salt among others. At the same time, the complexities of the relations between the settlers and the local Native American population, as well as the tensions within both communities, are nuanced and resist easy solutions and a sense of black and white.

Furthermore, I appreciated the sense of children being caught up in adult mistakes, and the different ways in which the child characters interacted with and came in conflict with the adults in their lives.

Overall, it's a solid if unremarkable historical fiction choice that offers an interesting interpretation of a fascinating piece of history. Jan 03, Karen Arendt rated it it was amazing Shelves: historical-fiction , friendship , middle-grade , mock-newbery I find prose more challenging to read, having to re-read text to make sure I didn't miss something; with few words, each word counts, so it is always possible I missed something.

I loved the story of Alis and Kimi. The description of the English settlers at Roanoke-their confusion, misunderstandings, and even arrogance come through clearly in the text.
