Description: What is the cost of conscious aware citizens? At what age can we confirm this? As Helmut charges forward into life, he begins to realize some the landmarks of change in his life are like planned disasters. Mostly, he is led by success, despite its controls. Technology is changing the world undeniably, but its timed application is what begins to get his attention. Also, because of the nature of daytime routine critical thinking is diminished quickly, and then forgotten. As disaster economics displaces imbedded cultures Americans are seeing shattering community changes. Helmut’s father is an armed forces civil servant. He is sworn to country. What are the nurturing cues and consequences for the children? Obviously, the American family absorbs and enables the ones that survive bad choices. Some will say this book is an example of radical behavior modification. Incrementally, this book is a rite of passage for Helmut to leap forward in his thinking, pushing him sometimes dangerously. From the beginning, the question is “If man can be made predictable, can the adventure be man-made?” This series of short capers causes internalized shock, skepticism, and self-preservation. Elephant Step happens so naturally, or does it?

Description: This collection features all five New York Times bestselling Penderwicks adventures by National Book Award-winning author Jeanne Birdsall! Follow the Penderwicks' adventures, from a bunny-raising hobby to a dog-walking business, from summer breaks to school days, from unforgettable hijinks to chaotic misadventures--and always, with sisterhood through and through--in this exciting collection: The Penderwicks: This summer the Penderwick sisters discover the magic of a beautiful estate called Arundel. But the best discovery of all is Jeffrey Tifton, son of Arundel's owner, who becomes the perfect companion for their adventures. The Penderwicks on Gardam Street: When Mr. Penderwick's sister decides it's time for him to start dating, the girls come up with the Save-Daddy Plan--a plot so brilliant, so bold, so funny, that only the Penderwick girls could have come up with it. The Penderwicks at Point Mouette: When summer comes around, it's off to the beach for Rosalind . . . and off to Maine for the rest of the Penderwick girls and their old friend, Jeffrey. That leaves Skye as the oldest available Penderwick--a terrifying notion for all, but for Skye especially. The Penderwicks in Spring: Batty is saving up her dog-walking money for an extra-special surprise for her family, which she plans to present on her upcoming birthday. But when some unwelcome surprises make themselves known, the best-laid plans fall apart. The Penderwicks at Last: The Penderwicks return to Arundel this summer, the place where it all began. And better still is the occasion: a good old-fashioned, homemade-by-Penderwicks wedding.

Description: One mother’s story of enrolling her daughter in a local public school, and the surprising, necessary lessons she learned with her neighbors. From the time Courtney E. Martin strapped her daughter, Maya, to her chest for long walks, she was curious about Emerson Elementary, a public school down the street from her Oakland home. She learned that White families in their gentrifying neighborhood largely avoided the majority-Black, poorly-rated school. As she began asking why, a journey of a thousand moral miles began. Learning in Public is the story, not just Courtney’s journey, but a whole country’s. Many of us are newly awakened to the continuing racial injustice all around us, but unsure of how to go beyond hashtags and yard signs to be a part of transforming the country. Courtney discovers that her public school, the foundation of our fragile democracy, is a powerful place to dig deeper. Courtney E. Martin examines her own fears, assumptions, and conversations with other moms and dads as they navigate school choice. A vivid portrait of integration’s virtues and complexities, and yes, the palpable joy of trying to live differently in a country re-making itself. Learning in Public might also set your family’s life on a different course forever.

Extract: "If there was any fellow in the Boy's Town fifty years ago who had a good reason to run off it was Pony Baker. Pony was not his real name; it was what the boys called him, because there were so many fellows who had to be told apart, as Big Joe and Little Joe, and Big John and Little John, and Big Bill and Little Bill, that they got tired of telling boys apart that way; and after one of the boys called him Pony Baker, so that you could know him from his cousin Frank Baker, nobody ever called him anything else."

Description:

Four complete books for one low price! Characters you can relate to.

♥Welcome the Peterson sisters into your life as they find their way back to one another, overcoming challenges and finding their happily-ever-afters at the same time.♥


★Book One★

A Heart to Call Home

After an indifferent divorce, Reed Peterson traded in her high-profile career in the city for an opportunity to try her hand at running a business of her own. She’s not sure if the small town life is for her, but since part of her new mission in life is to adopt the free-spiritedness her mother had once embodied, she knows she has to give it a try. She needs her freedom, and she needs it now. Even if the fresh air might suffocate her.

Rogan Douglas agrees to take on the job of getting Reed’s property up-to-snuff so she can re-open the once grand—now dilapidated—cottage motel in town. Struggling to raise his five kids on his own after the accidental death of his wife, Rogan didn’t realize the job would cost him so much. Like his sanity. And his heart.

Reed and Rogan are venturing down different paths in life, but can they resist the powerful attraction that threatens the way they see themselves? Their futures? And is it possible for two people with such different personalities and values to find a way to call each other’s heart their home?


Book Two

Loving a Wildflower

Simplicity Peterson has never cared about fitting in, but she’s ready to put her couch-surfing days behind her. First step toward planting roots—find a way to make a difference in her new community. Volunteering to help the reclusive and notoriously difficult Ethan Witherford will help people see the good side of her. If she tries hard enough, she should be able to keep everyone in town from thinking of her as the crazy hippie. She expects to feel good about performing this important community service, but she’s far from prepared when Ethan turns out to be the most dangerous rollercoaster she’s ever had the pleasure of riding.

Ethan had been tortured enough as a POW. He doesn’t need this free-spirited nymph interfering in his quiet, uncomfortable existence. His one goal in life is to make his estranged parents miserable, and he can’t fulfill that destiny if Simplicity continues yanking him from his dark cave as she chases a world of make-believe.

His scars are external. Hers are internal. She can look past his. Can he do the same?


Book Three

Wherever You Go

The last thing Paisley Peterson needs is to fall in love. She left her high-stress job in Boston so she could heal in Healing Springs--isn't that what the town is about? She needs her sisters. She does not need a man.

Asher has always been the one to take care of the people in his life, so when sexy Paisley strolls in and takes the lead, he finds himself turned on by her independence and confidence in a way he has never been turned on before. But after suffering too many losses in life and with a plate already brimming with family members who need his care and protection, can he handle the truth behind her sudden appearance in Healing Springs? How is he supposed to allow himself to get close to her when he could lose her?

Asher and Paisley are from two different worlds with two different life plans. Will their unplanned love affair turn into a dead end? Or will it be just the detour they have both needed all along?

Book Four

Imperfect Harmony

A marriage of convenience isn’t on Harmony Peterson’s agenda when she’s forced to sneak into Healing Springs to retrieve important papers, but if marrying a stranger keeps her from reuniting with her estranged sisters, how dumb would she be to turn down the offer? She’ll do whatever it takes to keep her vow to protect the infant she hadn’t planned on raising.

Keegan O’Malley knows he’s not qualified to save anyone, but if a sham marriage can help this beautiful, intriguing stranger who forced her way into his life and maybe help him in return, why should he talk himself into reason? Though he’s failed to live up to his moral code before, he has to believe he’s somehow been given a second chance to right the wrongs.

A fake marriage may be something they can live with. But can they honor the unspoken promise to keep their hearts out of the bargain?

So begins Christopher Fowler's foray into the back catalogues and backstories of 99 authors who, once hugely popular, have all but disappeared from our shelves. Whether male or female, domestic or international, flash-in-the-pan or prolific, mega-seller or prize-winner - no author, it seems, can ever be fully immune from the fate of being forgotten. And Fowler, as well as remembering their careers, lifts the lid on their lives, and why they often stopped writing or disappeared from the public eye. These 99 journeys are punctuated by 12 short essays about faded once-favourites: including the now-vanished novels Walt Disney brought to the screen, the contemporary rivals of Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie who did not stand the test of time, and the women who introduced us to psychological suspense many decades before it conquered the world. This is a book about books and their authors. It is for book lovers, and is written by one who could not be a more enthusiastic, enlightening and entertaining guide.

Description: This is the first volume to consider the popular literary category of Early Readers – books written and designed for children who are just beginning to read independently. It argues that Early Readers deserve more scholarly attention and careful thought because they are, for many younger readers, their first opportunity to engage with a work of literature on their own, to feel a sense of mastery over a text, and to experience pleasure from the act of reading independently. Using interdisciplinary approaches that draw upon and synthesize research being done in education, child psychology, sociology, cultural studies, and children’s literature, the volume visits Early Readers from a variety of angles: as teaching tools; as cultural artifacts that shape cultural and individual subjectivity; as mass produced products sold to a niche market of parents, educators, and young children; and as aesthetic objects, works of literature and art with specific conventions. Examining the reasons such books are so popular with young readers, as well as the reasons that some adults challenge and censor them, the volume considers the ways Early Readers contribute to the construction of younger children as readers, thinkers, consumers, and as gendered, raced, classed subjects. It also addresses children’s texts that have been translated and sold around the globe, examining them as part of an increasingly transnational children’s media culture that may add to or supplant regional, ethnic, and national children’s literatures and cultures. While this collection focuses mostly on books written in English and often aimed at children living in the US, it is important to acknowledge that these Early Readers are a major US cultural export, influencing the reading habits and development of children across the globe.

Description: Revisit the beloved Charleston Trilogy with #1 New York Times bestselling author Sherryl Woods in this collection of heartwarming tales. THE BACKUP PLAN It’s finally time for Dinah Davis to go home. The world-weary correspondent wants to settle down with the sweet guy she left behind in South Carolina’s Low Country. Instead, she’s confronted by his black-sheep brother, and—despite her longing for serenity—sparks fly. FLIRTING WITH DISASTER There’s a fine line between desire and disaster. At least, that’s what improper Southern belle Maggie Forsythe thinks when she’s unceremoniously dumped by a fiancé even her mother approved of. Maggie has never cared what anyone thinks, so why is she hiding away from her South Carolina Low Country home? WAKING UP IN CHARLESTON The moment Amanda defied her rich and powerful father to marry Bobby O’Leary, Big Max disowned her. Even now, with Bobby dead and Amanda mired in debt, he refuses to forgive her. Caleb, the new man in Amanda’s life, is determined to mend fences between father and daughter. He also has a far more personal mission—to make Amanda and her family his own. Titles originally published in 2005 and 2006.
