Hamilton: The Revolution

Pdf Young Adult Hamilton: The Revolution

Pdf:Hamilton: The Revolution.A backstage pass to the groundbreaking, hit musical Hamilton, winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Eleven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, including the award-winning libretto, behind-the-scenes photos and interviews, and exclusive footnotes from composer-lyricist-star Lin-Manuel Miranda.Lin-Manuel Miranda's groundbreaking musical Hamilton is as revolutionary as its subject, the poor kid from the Caribbean who fought the British, defended the Constitution, and helped to found the United States. Fusing hip-hop, pop, R&B, and the best traditions of theater, this once-in-a-generation show broadens the sound of Broadway, reveals the storytelling power of rap, and claims our country's origins for a diverse new generation. HAMILTON: THE REVOLUTION gives readers an unprecedented view of both revolutions, from the only two writers able to provide it. Miranda, along with Jeremy McCarter, a cultural critic and theater artist who was involved in the project from its earliest stages--"since before this was even a show," according to Miranda--traces its development from an improbable perfor­mance at the White House to its landmark opening night on Broadway six years later. In addition, Miranda has written more than 200 funny, revealing footnotes for his award-winning libretto, the full text of which is published here. Their account features photos by the renowned Frank Ockenfels and veteran Broadway photographer, Joan Marcus; exclusive looks at notebooks and emails; interviews with Questlove, Stephen Sond­heim, leading political commentators, and more than 50 people involved with the production; and multiple appearances by Presi­dent Obama himself. The book does more than tell the surprising story of how a Broadway musical became a national phenomenon: It demonstrates that America has always been renewed by the brash upstarts and brilliant outsiders, the men and women who don't throw away their shot.

Eva Zeisel on Design

Pdf Young Adult Eva Zeisel on Design

Pdf:Eva Zeisel on Design.From Publishers Weekly Despite having lived through both moderism’s advent and its ‘post’-ification, 97-year-old designer Zeisel advocates a pre-modernist concept of 'magic design language' in this lavishly illustrated tribute to her inspirations, accomplishments and beliefs. The Hungarian-born Zeisel spent the early years of her career in the U.S.S.R., until she was accused of plotting to murder Stalin. After 16 months of arrest, she was inexplicably freed, and arrived in New York via Austria and England in 1938. Within 10 years, she was at the forefront of America ceramic design. Her work now resides in the collections of major museums. Throughout this volume, Zeisel compares the objects that she has designed with works from ancient and contemporary cultures. Her smooth, evocative forks, glasses, cups, irons, tea pots are juxtaposed with long-limbed cacti, the arches of a medieval cloister, the 'ragged contour' of an Iranian village wall and an Etruscan 'spiky pitcher.' The photos unfold organically, loosely grouped around various design precepts. Alone, a tall teapot skewed on its axis 'makes us feel ill-at-ease'; balanced with a second one facing it, 'the teapots seem to be dancing,' Zeisel writes—thus the magic. In one of the most amusing parts of the book, Zeisel shows how her students often resemble their own designs, deftly reminding us of the close link she advocates between works and the people who make them. With a film on her life recently completed, and further books on her work forthcoming, expect a Zeisel renaissance. 164 color and 85 b&w photographs.Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. Read more About the Author Born in Budapest in l906, Eva Zeisel emigrated to the United States in 1938, after having designed glass and pottery for factories in Berlin, Hamburg, and Russia. Among her many awards and honors, she has received a senior award from the National Endowment for the Arts, and was the subject of a touring exhibition sponsored by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service and the Musee des Arts Decoratifs.

Pdf Young Adult The Art of Howl's Moving Castle

Pdf:The Art of Howl's Moving Castle.Shortly after reaping the rewards from his movie Spirited Away, a project that earned him an Academy Award in 2003, director Hayao Miyazaki set his sites on his next film, Howl's Moving Castle.Based on the novel by British author Diana Wynne Jones, Howl's Moving Castle gave the internationally renowned director an opportunity to bring to life a fantastical time in 19th century Europe when science and magic defined the popular zeitgeist.Veering slightly from its source material, the new Miyazaki movie nonetheless retains all the novel's principal characters. There's a foppish wizard named Howl, a vain witch from the wastelands, an anthropomorphic chimney fire and a young girl who carries a most unusual curse. And, of course, there's the moving castle…a towering, omnipresent structure that dominates the landscape. Already a smash success in Japan, Howl's Moving Castle finally comes to U.S. theatres this spring. To coincide with its Stateside release, VIZ is proud to present The Art of Howl's Moving Castle, a hardbound, prestige format book which acts as an essential companion to the film. A generous collection of concept sketches, fully rendered character and background drawings, paintings and cell images, The Art of Howl's Moving Castle brings the movie into your library. Along with the stunning visuals, the book also presents interviews and comments with the production staff, including key points directly from the director.There's more than one way to book passage on the moving castle.

Right College, Right Price: The New System for Discovering the Best College Fit at the Best Price

Pdf Young Adult Right College, Right Price: The New System for Discovering the Best College Fit at the Best Price

Pdf:Right College, Right Price: The New System for Discovering the Best College Fit at the Best Price.Review 'The Financial Fit Breakthrough is a new system that lets parents and students overcome the nightmare of complexity and anxiety over filing for and receiving their college financial aid package, and find their best college prospects.' - Publishers Weekly'Palmasani, a veteran guidance and college admissions director, has written a really smart, accessible book on how to successfully navigate the financial side of the college admissions process, from assessing what you can afford to helping you compare costs and analyze award letters.' - Countdown to College Read more Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved. CHAPTER 1 THE PROBLEM The way we’ve been choosing and paying for college for so many years is now broken, leaving families in tough financial situations or with excessive debt. But I’m here to tell you that, even faced with soaring tuition, a poor economy, and limited financial assistance, every family can find a great college at the right price. We just need to use a better method. So much has changed during my thirty-plus years of working with families on selecting and paying for college. I’ve always attempted to help them determine how they could provide their son or daughter with the resources to attain a college education―and do it without destroying their own financial lives. In the early years, the solution was simple: just get families to file forms correctly. Later, it became more complicated: help families understand the details of the financial aid system so that they could better plan, prepare, and learn how to maximize benefits. But now, in the midst of the student debt crisis and a system gone wrong, these options are simply not good enough for most families. A government financial-aid system that was once the backbone of opportunities for low- and middle-income families can no longer be relied upon to help families solve their problems. This story is a perfect example of the situation in which many families are finding themselves today. Jennifer* was a high school senior when she received an official award letter from her top-choice school, Indiana University in Bloomington. However, her award letter listed a net price for the college―what her family would have to pay for her to attend after loans and grants―that was $12,000 more per year than what her family could afford. It was April of her senior year, and Jennifer needed to make a final college decision by May 1. She and her parents had no idea what to do next. Unfortunately, Jennifer’s story is common today. Jennifer was a terrific student. Her ACT composite score was 31, and her high school grades were mostly As. But she wasn’t given the right approach to make her college choice affordable. Jennifer believed that she had followed the correct steps during her college search process. After all, she did what high school guidance counselors and college admissions officers told her to do. During her junior year, she and her parents used a well-known and respected college-search software program to help them choose potential colleges. Jennifer focused on colleges in the Midwest that had business programs. When she entered these variables into the program, it generated a list of 327 schools. Jennifer then narrowed down the number of colleges by focusing only on those with an enrollment of 20,000 or more students, because she wanted to go to a large school. Jennifer wanted to attend a school with a strong business program, so she turned next to U.S. News & World Report. She learned that Indiana University, the University of Illinois, the University of Michigan, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison all had highly respected business programs. After visiting with college admissions officers at each of these schools, spending time on their websites, and visiting their campuses in the summer between her junior and senior years, Jennifer decided to apply to all four schools. Together, the college applications cost the family $260. Jennifer’s guidance counselor and the college admissions officers told Jennifer and her family not to worry about cost. Each college admissions officer suggested that financial aid was available to qualified students and that merit academic scholarships might also be available. Jennifer’s parents attended several financial aid sessions at her high school. They learned that, once they filed a financial aid document called the FAFSA, they would receive their Expected Family Contribution (EFC) number. Colleges would use this number to determine how much financial aid the family would receive. Jennifer’s parents could use this number as a good indicator of how much money they would have to pay out of pocket for her to attend college. Jennifer’s parents used a program called FAFSA4caster to learn their EFC, which was $12,457. While this amount was high, they believed it was manageable. Jennifer and her family were also prepared if the net price of college was slightly higher than that EFC number. During the winter of her senior year, Jennifer searched for private scholarships in case additional money was needed. (She was able to obtain a $1,000 one-time scholarship from a local Rotary club.) Her parents also had saved about $6,500 for her college needs. Jennifer was thrilled when she received acceptance letters from all of the four colleges. However, the shock came in April when the official financial-award letters arrived. None of the schools had a net price anywhere close to the $12,500 that Jennifer and her family had expected. The closest option was their state’s flagship school, the University of Illinois at Urbana. This school did not offer Jennifer a merit scholarship, and Jennifer only qualified for federal Direct Loans. Thus the college’s net price was $27,500―and this appeared to be her best financial option of the four. Indiana University, Jennifer’s top-choice college, offered her a merit scholarship. The award letter also indicated that Jennifer qualified for federal Direct Loans, but in the end, the net price was still higher than for the University of Illinois. The two other schools, the University of Michigan and the University of Wisconsin, had net prices that were even higher. So not only was University of Illinois not her first choice in schools, but as the most “affordable,” it cost more than double what her family could afford. Extremely disappointed, Jennifer and her family were left with two bad options. She could attend the local community college begrudgingly or she could overextend―borrow more than she should―and attend any of her four options. Jennifer was a great student. She did everything she thought she was supposed to do to find the right college. But in the end, she found herself needing to either go to community college or take on excessive debt. *All examples within this book are inspired by my experiences as a counselor. Names have been changed to protect the privacy of the individuals involved. This is just one example of the many ways the college financial aid system isn’t working for today’s families. The good news is that there is a better way that will help you find a great college at the right price. I’ve created Financial Fit™―a college search method that helps families find affordable college options―and used it as the basis for both this book and the Financial Fit software program on www.collegecountdown.com. With these resources, I hope to solve the college debt crisis for families. I believe that by working together―parents, students, counselors, and colleges―we can do just that. I realized a couple of years ago that I had to focus on what I could control. I can’t control how colleges make pricing decisions. I could complain about the rising costs of college tuition and fees being well beyond inflation, but the complaint would not change the reality. I could complain about the federal and state governments’ inability to increase their support to match the rising college costs, but looking at the other challenges that those entities have, that complaint seems almost unwarranted. What I did realize, though, was that we could change how we search for schools. Financial Fit offers a solution. Using the tools and resources provided in this book and the software program, every family can find affordable college options. No family―that’s right, no family―has to borrow excessive amounts of money so that their child can receive an undergraduate college degree. I am confident that by using the Financial Fit method you will be able to replace the angst and anxiety that you have about college costs (as a parent) with a hope that you can provide your son or daughter with something that you definitely want them to have―and you can do it without destroying their financial lives or your own in the process. In this chapter, we’ll take a closer look at the issues affecting the college search and financial aid system today so that you can see just how we got where we are and understand some of the biggest myths and misconceptions about paying for college. One of the biggest issues is the current college-search timeline. The Traditional Timeline The college search process was much simpler in the past. Years ago, most students considered only a few colleges, those that their friends planned to attend or perhaps those personally recommended by their guidance counselor. Paying for college was also easier back then. College was much more affordable twenty to thirty years ago than it is today. The requirements to receive financial aid were not as stringent, and at some schools, students could borrow enough money in student loans to cover the cost of tuition. Today’s high school students follow a completely different process in searching for a college. During their junior year, students begin to seriously think about which college they would like to attend. They attend college fairs and speak to college admissions counselors. And eventually, a counselor, parent, or friend introduces them to online college search programs. With the click of a mouse, students can use these programs to access information about more than 2,000 four-year colleges and universities in the United States. To narrow down their search, they enter preferences such as whether they would like to attend a two-year or a four-year school, along with the desired location, school size, major, and extracurricular activities. (See Figure 1.1.) Figure 1.1: Traditional Factors Considered in Choosing a College As the student enters preference after preference, the colleges that don’t match up with these preferences are eliminated. Colleges that do match up stay on the list. The students can even get an idea of whether they will be accepted to these colleges by comparing their GPA and SAT/ACT scores with those of students who have been accepted and not accepted at these colleges. Do you see anything missing so far in the factors students are considering in narrowing down their list of schools? That’s right: price. Now, college search programs show each college’s listed costs. But those costs are just the advertised price, what we call the “sticker price” (much like when you go to purchase a car). These programs are unable to compute how much students will receive from that college in grants, scholarships, and student loans, and thus how much that school will actually cost to attend (the “net price”). Without the ability to do this, the costs listed in college search programs have no meaning. Once students and parents use college search software to create a list of potential colleges, they peruse these colleges’ websites and perhaps visit some campuses. By the time the fall of senior year rolls around, many students are prepared to apply to six to ten schools. In most cases, these applications must be accompanied by an application fee that ranges from $30 to $90. Even at that point, while students are applying to and being accepted by colleges, they have no idea how much each college will cost. College admissions and financial aid officers often do not help the situation. They may cite statistics that create the impression that many families receive financial aid from their school. Sometimes, they’ll cite average aid awards to keep a family interested in their school. Finally, in January of the students’ senior year, the first step in finding out the real costs begins. Parents file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). In some circumstances, parents must also file a CSS Profile, a supplemental form required by certain colleges. Financial aid officers use the results of these forms to construct financial-award letters. In March or April of their senior year, students receive these official financial-award letters from the colleges that have accepted them. A typical award letter lists all grants, scholarships, student loans, and work options that a student will receive if he or she chooses to attend that particular college. After they analyze these award letters, families are finally able to determine the actual cost of colleges. They are finally able to see each school’s “net price.” Now consider this typical scenario: A student, like Jennifer, has done exactly what she was told to do. She started the process by establishing an initial list of colleges. High school and admissions counselors encouraged her not to worry about the cost just yet. “Follow the timeline,” they told her, “and everything will work out.” However, what happens when her official award letters arrive in March or April of her senior year and none of the colleges are affordable? And she only has until May 1 to decide what to do! Disappointment sets in. Such disappointment usually leads the student and her family to pursue one of two options: Option 1: The student and her family decide that she should attend a local community college. Now, a community college is a great option when it’s part of the original plan, but if a student decides to attend because he or she thinks there is no other option, the student may attend reluctantly and enter college without the enthusiasm needed for a successful first year. Option 2: The family decides to overextend its debt and chooses one of the unaffordable colleges. This option is much worse than the first. Parents often feel guilty if they don’t overextend. They feel that their child has worked hard to get good grades and deserves to attend the college he or she wants. This thinking has created what the national media now calls the student debt crisis. As you can see, the way we currently tell students how to search and apply for colleges leaves the major factor of costs completely out of the equation until too late. Fortunately, Financial Fit gives you a way to start seeing and planning for costs right from the start. Ten Misconceptions about Paying for College Another major problem with planning for college costs is the large amount of outdated or just plain incorrect information out there. This misinformation confuses parents and often leads to bad choices or missed opportunities. I’ve identified the top ten misconceptions about paying for college―and what the truth is―so you can avoid falling into any of these traps. Misconception 1: College tuition today is so high and opportunities for help are so limited that only wealthy families can afford to send their kids to college. Reality: Qualified students can attend college, regardless of their family’s income, if they follow the right process and choose the right school. Sticker prices―what a school lists as its comprehensive costs―range from $2,500 per year at a community college to more than $55,000 per year at a highly selective private college. Families don’t pay the sticker price, however. They pay the net price, which is the price after grants, scholarships, student loans, and work options are deducted. Some colleges offer impressive awards to lower their net price, which allow many students from lower- and middle-class households to attend college without accumulating excessive debt. Yes, financial aid is more limited than it was in the past. States have tightened their budgets, and more students are applying to colleges than ever before. Qualifying for the Pell Grant, the largest source of federal financial aid, is also more difficult now. However, even if your son or daughter does not qualify for financial aid, he or she can still receive federal student loans, which are available to all full-time students regardless of income. There is an affordable college option for all families. The key is to learn how to find this option. The Financial Fit program will teach you how to do just that. Misconception 2: The financial aid system supplies enough aid for all qualified students to attend the college of their choice. Reality: The financial aid system is more limited than it was in the past. It might supply enough resources for qualified students to attend college―but not necessarily the college of their choice. Many students mistakenly believe that financial aid will allow them to attend any college. However, the process of matching what a family can afford with the net price of a school is the only way to ensure that a student can attend college without accumulating excessive debt. A family can’t rely on the financial aid system alone to make that happen. Misconception 3: The best colleges cost the most. Reality: While elite colleges tend to come with higher sticker prices, as we’ve discussed, the sticker price is not what you pay. Many families find that their student’s profile will result in some fantastic net prices at great schools. It’s just a matter of determining that early in the process. Also, recognize that there are no “best colleges.” The best college for a student is one that fits the student in all ways. The student’s academic profile matches the academic profile of the college. It has the student’s desired major or program of study. It has the right “feel” for the student, so he or she feels comfortable there. More importantly, it is the best financial fit for the student. The student can attend the school without risking financial devastation after graduation. Misconception 4: Your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) is what you must pay for your child to attend college. Reality: EFC is one of the most misunderstood and misleading terms related to the college search process. Your EFC is calculated when you complete the FAFSA. The EFC is then used as part of this equation: Cost of Attendance – EFC = Need You’ll read more about this in Chapter 9, “Understand Expected Family Contribution (EFC) and Its Relationship to Financial Aid.” But basically, the EFC is just a number used to determine whether a student is eligible for certain financial aid programs. While financial aid officers at colleges need to know this number, it has little value to families because, at most schools, it does not translate into net price. In some cases, a family’s net price is lower than its EFC, but in other cases, it’s higher. Financial Fit will show you how to learn your estimated net price and your official net price at every school in the country. This is what will help you determine whether a college is affordable for your family. Misconception 5: Students can borrow an unlimited amount of money to attend college. Reality: Students can borrow a great deal of money to attend college―too much money, in some cases―but this amount is not unlimited. Every student can obtain federal Direct Loans, formerly called Stafford Loans, simply by filing the FAFSA. The Direct Loan program has a per-year maximum borrowing limit: Students may borrow $5,500 for their freshman year, $6,500 for their sophomore year, $7,500 for their junior year, and $7,500 for their senior year. There are two types of Direct Loans: subsidized and unsubsidized. Both types are student loans and not parent loans. This means that they are written in the student’s name, so the parent is not legally responsible to pay them. However, the terms of subsidized and unsubsidized loans are quite different. The subsidized Direct Loan is the more attractive of the two. No interest is accrued on a subsidized loan while the student is in college. The interest rate, which was 3.4 percent in 2012, does not begin to accrue until six months after graduation. The interest on an unsubsidized Direct Loan begins to accrue immediately, and the interest rate is higher. The interest rate on an unsubsidized Direct Loan was 6.8 percent in 2012. Some students take the maximum amount of Direct Loans and acquire private student loans when more resources are needed. The private loans could have a higher interest rate. However, the goal of Financial Fit is to help you and your child avoid accumulating excessive debt. Misconception 6: The key to getting financial aid is to learn how to “hide” your savings. Reality: While the system that determines your family’s eligibility for financial aid takes into account your family’s income, it only takes into account certain assets, such as savings and investments. These are called reportable assets. Later in the book, you’ll learn how these reportable assets impact the EFC number. Only in rare cases will repositioning of these assets lower a family’s net price to attend a college. Sadly, though, some financial advisors recommend the repositioning of assets as a panacea and charge money for this recommendation even if the result doesn’t impact the net price of college. Misconception 7: If you don’t claim your child on your tax return, your child can become independent and will receive more financial aid. Reality: Your child is not considered independent simply because you didn’t claim him or her on your tax return. Children can become independent, though, if they are wards of the court, homeless, in the military, or married. They are also considered independent if they have children whom they support financially. Students taking graduate courses and those who are twenty-four years old or older are also independent. If a student is deemed independent, the only financial information recorded on the FAFSA is the student’s. Parents’ financial information is not to be recorded. Misconception 8: Students should find the college that most interests them before they begin searching for financial aid and scholarships. Reality: Although a number of aspects of the Financial Fit program differ from other college-search methods, this one is the most critical. Students and parents following the Financial Fit program do not start the college search process by using college search programs, looking at college websites, visiting college campuses, and talking to college admissions officers. Instead, students and parents begin the college search process by systematically determining what they can actually afford to pay for college―and then looking for great colleges. This method is described in Chapter 2. Misconception 9: Countless scholarship dollars remain unclaimed each year, but finding this money is difficult and time-consuming. Reality: Thousands upon thousands of agencies and organizations offer private scholarships, but finding them is no longer difficult. Students can now use scholarship search databases to find relevant scholarships. Categorizing scholarships into these four groups and pursuing the groups in this order maximizes search results: workplace scholarships, local groups, regional groups, and national groups. We’ll discuss finding and applying for scholarships in Chapter 11. Misconception 10: If you make too much money, you shouldn’t bother filing the FAFSA. Reality: All families should file the FAFSA regardless of their income. Although the FAFSA determines your family’s eligibility for need-based grants and subsidized student loans, other forms of aid are available regardless of your income and assets. If you want your child to have the opportunity to borrow some money to pay for college himself or herself, you need to file the FAFSA. You can’t obtain Direct Loans unless you file this document. Why Paying for College Is So Hard Today While the issues with the timeline and many of the misconceptions about paying for college have been around for quite a while, paying for college today is much harder than even in the recent past. Several factors are driving this growing problem. Soaring College Tuition While the recession may have caused your family’s wages to decrease, the cost of college has soared. Consider the increase from the 2001–2002 school year to the 2011–2012 one. The following average costs are according to the College Board and do not include room and board: Tuition and fees at a two-year public college increased from $1,748 to $3,122. Tuition and fees for in-state students at a four-year public college or university increased from $3,605 to $7,692. Tuition and fees at a four-year private college or university increased from $14,895 to $25,296. Over the past ten years, the direct cost of college (tuition, fees, and room and board) at a private four-year college or university has increased an average of 5.4 percent per year. During this same time, the direct cost of college for an in-state student at a four-year public college or university has risen at an average rate of 6.2 percent. During that same period, though, the average rate of inflation was only 2.26 percent, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. These statistics have led to a new term, “college inflation.” “College inflation” means that the costs of college are rising much more rapidly than the inflation of the economy as a whole, making college much less affordable for everyone. This would be a problem in any economy, but it is especially troublesome today. Figure 1.2: The Rising Cost of a College Education A Poor Economy Paying for college has never been easy, but it’s more difficult now. The poor economy is partly to blame. The recent recession has left many people out of work. In 2010, the unemployment rate was a staggering 9.6 percent. It decreased in 2011, but by less than one percent. And in some states, such as California, Florida, and Michigan, the unemployment rate in 2011 remained higher than 10 percent. If you are lucky enough to have a job today, you might not make as much money as you once did. The median household income in the United States has dipped from $51,295 in 1998 to $49,445 in 2011. (These incomes have been adjusted for inflation.) The housing bust has also made it more difficult to borrow money for college. A decade ago, families had the option of borrowing against the value of their homes to fund a college education. Today, many families have lost the equity in their home, so their ability to use this equity as a borrowing source has decreased or been eliminated. Limited Financial Assistance As if the other problems weren’t causing enough strain, the amount of financial assistance available to colleges is on the decline as well. The amount of money that states are willing to contribute to a public four-year college or university has decreased during the last decade, which means students have to pay higher tuition. In 2000, most states contributed more than $8,000 per student per year, and students paid $3,350 each. By 2010, most states contributed only $6,500 per student per year, and students had to pay $4,300. Why did states cut back on their funding? Many states feel their limited funds are needed elsewhere. Also, jobs are scarce and thus more students than ever are now enrolled in college. A Perfect Storm These are the realities. College costs have soared. The economy is challenging. Resources to families from states and the federal government have not kept up with college inflation. The result, of course, is that students and parents have borrowed significantly more money. However, the method described in this book will help you personally avoid this problem of excessive debt. You’ll learn what not to do, and more importantly, you’ll learn what to do and when to do it. By following the recommendations provided, you’ll ensure yourself an affordable college option and avoid excessive debt. THE IMPACT OF PARENTS’ FINANCIAL MISTAKES After one of my seminars during the winter of 2008, a family called asking for a personal consultation. Laura was an assistant principal at a junior high school. She and her husband had a combined income of $150,000 and were raising four children. Two of their children were in high school. Like most families that attend my seminars, Laura and her husband wanted the very best for their children. However, Laura was living in a sea of red. She had no equity left on her home after a first and second mortgage. The family owned two relatively new cars and had to make loan payments on them for another three to four years. Because of their income, they had little opportunity for need-based grants. Yet despite that good income, Laura had no discretionary income left each month and very little in savings. Here was the kicker: At the age of forty, she was still paying off $70,000 of her own student-loan debt! Her monthly payment on that debt was more than $700. The only college option for Laura’s children was a two-year community college. After this, they could attempt to enter the workforce and accumulate enough savings to continue their education as working young adults and slowly complete their bachelor’s degrees. Laura’s own college choice was her first poor financial decision. When I asked her how it all happened, she said, “During my senior year of high school, I was a pretty good student, but I came from a home where neither parent attended college. Everyone was encouraging me to find the best college possible. My parents wanted to give me the best, and my high school counselor encouraged me to pursue schools that fit me academically. “I never even thought about cost because all the responsible adults told me that financial aid would be available. We filed the FAFSA and I received the grants they said I would receive. My parents had absolutely no resources and very little income. Sure, I was able to attain federal and state grant money, but it did not cover the high cost of attending my top-choice college. I had to borrow the rest. The financial aid officer at the college helped me attain a private loan beyond the Stafford, and I graduated with $50,000 of undergraduate debt. “Although I started working soon after college, I needed a master’s degree to advance myself. I kept deferring payment on the undergraduate debt as long as I could while incurring more debt to take graduate courses.” I asked Laura the obvious question: “Why did you attend the college you did when there were less expensive options available to you?” Her answer helped me realize why Financial Fit is so important. She replied, “I didn’t know any better. No one counseled me. No one stopped me, and responsible adults like my high school counselor and the college admissions counselor encouraged me to strive for the best college possible.” Laura’s experience is not uncommon. So many families from the mid-1990s to the mid-2000s continued to purchase things they couldn’t afford. They bought houses, cars, and educational opportunities by borrowing money―and now they and their children must suffer the consequences. The Student Debt Crisis The problems with the college cost system have gotten so large and widespread that this mounting debt is now referred to as a national crisis. Too many college students today owe an extraordinary amount of money in student loans. They are borrowing twice the amount that they borrowed a decade ago (after adjusting for inflation). In 2010, student borrowing surpassed $1 trillion for the first time. The Federal Reserve Bank of New York and other sources report that Americans now have more student-loan debt than credit-card debt. The average student debt is now approximately $25,000, and the average parent debt to help a child attend college is $34,000. Very soon, the average family debt to pay for college will surpass $60,000. Unlike other types of loans, student loans can be quite punishing. Even if students declare bankruptcy, they are still responsible for student loans. We see the stories around us every day: A 26-year-old graduate from New York University who was attempting to manage a student debt of $100,000, as featured in an article by Ron Lieber in the May 28, 2010 edition of the New York Times. A 2009 graduate of Northeastern University who was carrying a $200,000 student debt load and was mentioned by writer Laura Rowley in a December 6, 2010 article on Yahoo! Finance. A student who accumulated $74,000 in student debt to pay for a business degree from Kent State University that Sue Shellenburger wrote about in “To Pay Off Loans, Grads Put Off Marriage, Children,” published in the Wall Street Journal on April 18, 2012. Sixty percent of the student’s monthly take-home pay is used to pay her monthly student-loan payment. Forty percent of her fiancé’s paycheck is used to pay his monthly student-loan payment. Clearly, the student debt crisis has long-term implications for everyone. You and your child can avoid this situation by choosing a college that you can afford. You’ll start learning how to do this in the next chapter, “Overview of Financial Fit.” THERE ARE NO “SILVER BULLETS” When I tell families that they need to begin the college search process by weeding out colleges that they cannot afford, they are not pleased. My message is not one that they want to hear. They do not want to hear that their child cannot go to his or her top-choice school because they, as a family, cannot afford this school. Instead, they want me to show them how to find a scholarship that will cover the cost of the tuition at this school or tell them how they can hide their money so they appear to be poor and receive the maximum amount in financial aid. These families want me to come up with a “silver bullet,” a magical way to make it work out so that their child is not disappointed. The Financial Fit program is a practical way for families to send their children to college without accumulating excessive debt―but this method in no way promises that they will be able to send each child to his or her top-choice school. There are no silver bullets. If you purchase a home or a car that you can’t afford, you’ll suffer the consequences of excessive borrowing. The same is true of college. The key is to find an affordable school that is a financial fit for your family. And you need to do this early in the process so your child does not waste time pursuing college options that are unaffordable. KEY POINTS Students today use college search software programs to select college options by entering preferences such as major, location, and school size. Many of these students select college options without learning the net price of these colleges until very late in the college search process. They may be disappointed to learn in March or April of their senior year that none of the colleges they applied to is affordable. When students and their parents follow the Financial Fit program, they first learn what they can afford to spend on college and then investigate colleges that match that affordability. Paying for college today is even more difficult than it was in the past because of soaring college tuition, a poor economy, and limited financial assistance. Students today are borrowing twice as much in student loans as students did in the past. This has led to what media calls the “student debt crisis.” Read more

Best Colleges 2018: Find the Best Colleges for You!

Pdf Young Adult Best Colleges 2018: Find the Best Colleges for You!

Pdf:Best Colleges 2018: Find the Best Colleges for You!.From the Author From the foreword by Brian Kelly, Editor and Chief Content Officer of U.S. News: This college search thing can be a little intimidating, especially if you’re going through it for the first time. This is our 33rd go-round at U.S. News, so we feel like we’ve got some experience worth sharing. Over the years, we’ve improved our information and sharpened our focus, with our primary objective being to help students and their parents make one of life’s most important – and costliest – decisions. Prospective students and their parents need objective measures that allow them to evaluate and compare schools. The U.S. News rankings are one tool to help them make choices, along with all the other insights and guidance contained in these pages. This sort of assistance is more relevant than ever, with some private colleges now costing around $250,000 for a bachelor’s degree. At the same time, many public high schools have greatly reduced their college counseling resources, leaving students and parents to educate themselves about the search and admission process. Of course, we have adjusted our ranking methodology over the years to reflect changes in the world of higher education, and we make it clear that we are not doing peer-reviewed social science research, although we do maintain very high survey and data standards. We have always been open and transparent. We have always said that the rankings are not perfect. The first were based solely on schools’ academic reputation among leaders at peer institutions; we later developed a formula in which reputation accounts for 22.5 percent of a school’s score and important quantitative measures such as graduation and retention rates, average class size and student-faculty ratios account for the rest. Over time, we have shifted weight from inputs (indicators of the quality of students and resources) to outputs (success in graduating students). We operate under this guiding principle: The methodology is altered only if a change will better aid our readers and web audience in comparing schools as they’re deciding where to apply and enroll. It has helped us a great deal to have these principles to focus on as we have faced the inevitable criticisms from academia about our rankings’ growing influence. One main critique remains: that it is impossible to reduce the complexities of a college’s offerings and attributes to a single number. It’s important to keep in mind that our information is a starting point. The next steps in a college search should include detailed research on a smaller list of choices, campus visits and conversations with students, faculty and alumni wherever you can find them. Feedback from academia has helped improve the rankings over time. We meet with our critics, listen to their points of view, debate them on the merits of what we do, and make appropriate changes. U.S. News is keenly aware that the higher education community is also a major audience for our rankings. We understand how seriously academics, college presidents, trustees and governing boards take our data. They study, analyze and use them in various ways, including benchmarking against peers, alumni fundraising, and advertising to attract students. What does all of this mean in today’s global information marketplace? U.S. News has become a respected, unbiased resource that higher education administrators and policymakers and the college-bound public worldwide turn to for reliable guidance. In fact, the Best Colleges rankings have become a key part of the evolving higher education accountability movement. Universities are increasingly being held responsible for their policies, how their funds are spent, the level of student engagement, and how much graduates have learned. The U.S. News rankings have become the annual public benchmark to measure the academic performance of the country’s colleges and universities. We know our role has limits. The rankings should only be used as one factor in the college search – we’ve long said that there is no single “best college.” There is only the best college for you or, more likely, a handful of good options, one of which will turn out to be a great fit. Besides the rankings, we can help college-bound high school students and their parents by providing a wealth of information on all aspects of the application process, from getting in to getting financial aid. Our website, usnews.com, features thousands of pages of rankings, research, sortable data, photos, videos and a personalized tool called College Compass. We’ve been doing this for over three decades, so we know the process is not simple. But our experience tells us the hard work is worth it in the end.

On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness (The Wingfeather Saga)

Pdf Young Adult On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness (The Wingfeather Saga)

Pdf:On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness (The Wingfeather Saga).From Publishers Weekly Playwright Peterson (Behold the Lamb of God) spins a whimsical fantasy novel that will appeal to both adult and YA readers. When the three Igiby siblings find a mysterious map, they embark on an adventure to discover family secrets about the father they never knew and a hidden treasure that many have long desired to find. Leeli, the youngest, can sing with a beauty that captivates dragons; Tink, the middle sibling, has the makings of a king; and Janner, the eldest, possesses a bravery that will protect them all. But the children's curiosity get the entire Igiby family into trouble with the Fangs of Dang—frightening, scaly-skinned, lizard creatures that drip venom—who have ruled the land of Scree since the Great War. Soon, the Igibys are scrambling for their lives. Peterson's style is lighthearted and funny, but following the Igibys' story requires patience and attention to detail and character so as not to get lost. The sheer amount of names, places, creatures and history Peterson invents will frustrate some readers—it is so complicated that he inserts explanatory historical footnotes throughout (though many are amusing). (Mar.) Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. Read more Review “So good–smart, funny, as full of ideas as action.” –Jonathan Rogers, author of The Wilderking Trilogy “A wildly imaginative, wonderfully irreverent epic that shines with wit and wisdom–and features excellent instructions on how to cope with Thwaps, Fangs, and the occasional Toothy Cow.” –Allan Heinberg, writer/co-executive producer of ABC’s Grey's Anatomy, and co-creator of Marvel Comics Young Avengers “Fun to read! Every page has word-play, a pun, or clever dialogue that makes me giggle, and the story is full of insight into life. The characters have great names and come to life and stimulate the imagination. Andrew is such a gifted storyteller; this book will be a treasure to both children and adults.” –James Bryan Smith, author of Room of Marvels; Rich Mullins: An Arrow Pointing to Heaven, and Embracing the Love of God; co-author of Devotional Classics with Richard J. Foster “What a great story! I laughed, gasped, and learned more about Skreean culture than I ever thought possible. On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness is equal parts adventure and whimsy–a real page turner that both accelerates the heart and warms it. I loved it.” –Carolyn Arends, singer/songwriter and author of Wrestling with Angels “Sometimes, in order to find out who we were supposed to be, we need to get lost in other worlds: Oz, Camelot, Narnia. In On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness, Andrew Peterson provides new and needed places like Aerwiar, Skree, and Glipwood–places where we need to get lost and found.” –Michael Card, author of The Hidden Face of God and The Parable of Joy, and singer/songwriter of more than thirty albums “Totally fun! Andrew Peterson, a natural storyteller in the oral tradition, has nailed the voice needed to translate a rip-roaring fantasy tale to the written page.” –Donita K. Paul, author of DragonSpell, DragonKnight, DragonQuest, and DragonFire Read more See all Editorial Reviews

Pdf:On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness: Adventure. Peril. Lost Jewels. And the Fearsome Toothy Cows of Skree..Once, in a cottage above the cliffs on the Dark Sea of Darkness, there lived three children and their trusty dog Nugget. Janner Igiby, his brother Tink and their crippled sister Leeli are gifted children as all children are, loved well by a noble mother and ex-pirate grandfather. But they will need all their gifts and all that love to survive the evil pursuit of the venomous Fangs of Dang who have crossed the dark sea to rule the land with malice and pursue the Igibys who hold the secret to the lost legend and jewels of good King Wingfeather of the Shining Isle of Anniera. Andrew Peterson spins a quirky and riveting tale of the Igibys extraordinary journey from Glipwood's Dragon Day Festival and a secret hidden in the Books and Crannies Bookstore, past the terrifying Black Carriage, clutches of the horned hounds and loathsome toothy cows surrounding AnkleJelly Manor, through the Glipwood Forest and mysterious treehouse of Peet the Sock Man (known for a little softshoe and wearing tattered socks on his hands and arms), to the very edge of the Ice Prairies. Full of characters rich in heart, smarts, and courage, On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness presents a world of wonder and a tale children of all ages will cherish, families can listen to, and groups are sure to discuss for its layers of meaning about life's true treasure and tangle of the beautiful and horrible, temporal and eternal, and good and bad.

Rule #1: You Can't Date the Coach's Daughter (The Rules of Love)

Pdf Young Adult Rule #1: You Can't Date the Coach's Daughter (The Rules of Love)

Pdf:Rule #1: You Can't Date the Coach's Daughter (The Rules of Love).If only my heart understood the rules, I wouldn’t have fallen for Tyson Blake. Stupid heart.There are two types of people in high school: the ones that you can date and the ones you can’t. Unfortunately for me, I’m the latter. Even though I’m around hot football players every afternoon, they are not allowed to date me. If they even come close to flirting, my dad, Coach “The Boss” Davis, makes them run laps around the field until they puke. Nothing scares off a boy more than the threat of physical pain. Not only has he forbidden me to date anyone at all, he’s even made me the football team’s water girl so that he can keep tabs on me. Apparently, over protective dad is a fabulous guy deterrent. Outdoor shops should find a way to bottle it and sell it. They’d make a killing.What Dad doesn’t know is that I spend every last second of those two blissful hours of practice in the scorching California heat, staring at Tyson Blake. He is the epitome of perfection in a six-foot-two, incredibly toned, smells-good-even-when-he-sweats, senior body. And when he smiles, angels sing. Literally. And Dad hates him.It feels a bit cliche to say I fell for the one guy that would send Dad’s already high blood pressure over the the top. But it’s true. There’s something about Tyson. Something he’s trying to hide. But I can see through his cocky persona and I know there’s something more.

Pdf:Rule #3: You Can't Kiss Your Best Friend (The Rules of Love).It was supposed to be a simple kiss. That was all. Whoops.My plan was perfect: convince my best friend and school quarterback, Ethan, to be the final prize for my matchmaking test where the proceeds go to sending the band to Paris. Plus, if it matches me with my life-long crush, that's a bonus, right? What could go wrong?Apparently, a lot.First, the test matches me and Ethan. Which is easy to explain.

But, I have an incessant need to please all adults, so of course I say yes.When Cade seems pleased as well, I can’t help but wonder if this is part of some scheme. A plan he’s worked up to finish me once and for all. Apparently, what he did in junior high wasn’t enough. Just when I think I have everything figured out, my life spirals out of control. Suddenly, adults suck—especially parents—and pleasing them becomes the last thing I want to do. What confuses me even more is in the moment I choose to run away, the first person I go to is the one guy I swore I would never get close to.

Romeo and Juliet (Shakespeare Made Easy)

Pdf Young Adult Romeo and Juliet (Shakespeare Made Easy)

Pdf:Romeo and Juliet (Shakespeare Made Easy).About the Author William Shakespeare was born in April 1564 in the town of Stratford-upon-Avon, on England's Avon River. When he was eighteen, he married Anne Hathaway. The couple had three children--an older daughter Susanna and twins, Judith and Hamnet. Hamnet, Shakespeare's only son, died in childhood. The bulk of Shakespeare's working life was spent in the theater world of London, where he established himself professionally by the early 1590s. He enjoyed success not only as a playwright and poet, but also as an actor and shareholder in an acting company. Although some think that sometime between 1610 and 1613 Shakespeare retired from the theater and returned home to Stratford, where he died in 1616, others believe that he may have continued to work in London until close to his death.

Rather than focusing on what a business must accomplish to be successful, the four disciplines establish how to accomplish those things. One reason commitments tend to be abandoned in business is that new projects and goals are less urgent than the day-to-day tasks of each individual employee, which the authors call the “whirlwind.” The key to commitment fulfillment is for new tasks to take up only a small portion of each employee’s time, but for that employee to be held accountable for completing them. The first discipline is to settle on one or two wildly important goals (WIGs). These are the things that would have the most significant impact on progress toward the business’s long-term goals. In the second discipline, the WIG…   PLEASE NOTE: This is key takeaways and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.   Inside this Instaread Summary of The 4 Disciplines of Execution by Chris McChesney, Sean Covey, and Jim Huling | Includes Analysis   Overview of the Book Important People Key Takeaways Analysis of Key Takeaways   About the Author With Instaread, you can get the key takeaways, summary and analysis of a book in 15 minutes.

Make: Rockets: Down-to-Earth Rocket Science

Pdf Young Adult Make: Rockets: Down-to-Earth Rocket Science

Pdf:Make: Rockets: Down-to-Earth Rocket Science.Review 'What a great introduction to model rocketry. I am amazed at the variety of projects, from soda straws to competitive, multi-stage solid propellant. MAKE: Rockets has something for everyone. This book is a must for any enthusiast. Entertaining and educational, this book is a blast.' --Dr. KENNETH MORELAND, computer software research and development'With painstaking detail, Mike built and tested every model in the book. His meticulous research and development will be appreciated by both beginner and expert rocketeers. MAKE: Rockets is a perfect book for individuals, science classes, maker camps, and scouts.' --RICK SCHERTLE, co-founder, AirRocketWorks.com'MAKE: Rockets, by Mike Westerfield, is an excellent introductory guide to all types of rocketry, covering the basic principles of rocketry from simple hands-on experiments to detailed how-to instructions for building your own rockets and even instructions to build his cleverly designed rocket launchers of all types. If you are interested in learning more about model rocketry, MAKE: Rockets is the ideal hands-on guide.' --KEITH VIOLETTE, mechanical designer/inventor, DEKA Research and Development'This book is a must-have for anyone interested in model rocketry. It is engaging and fun to read, providing a wealth of information from the very basics to the somewhat technical. Whether it is your first launch or your 1000th, you will find this book useful and enlightening.' --KEVIN RYAN, software engineer, National Radio Astronomy Observatory Read more From the Author This book is all about learning by doing. You'll get instructions showing exactly how to build over a dozen rockets, launchers and trackers. Along the way, you will need some parts. As you buy the book, here are a few things to consider:Most of the solid-propellent rockets in the book can be build from parts in the Estes Designer Special. Amazon has a good price on this collection of parts. You can also buy individual parts from various model rocket suppliers.There are a few parts you will need for some of the later rockets that are not in the Estes Designer Special. You may want to wait to browse through the book before getting them, but if you're anxious to get started, hunt down the following parts. If you aren't sure what they are, wait a bit. The book will fill you in.1. One or two BT-60 to BT-70 balsa transitions. (One each for the egg lofter and a general purpose payload bay.)2. One or two BT-70 balsa nose cones. (One each for the egg lofter and a general purpose payload bay.)3. A BT-60 to BT-80 balsa transition and a BT-80 balsa nose cone for the camera payload.4. A small camera such as the Y-2000.5. Two extra BT-60 body tubes for payload boosters, a BT-70 body tube for the egg lofter and general purpose payload bay, and a BT-80 for the camera payload.6. Two extra BT-20 nose cones. I used blunt balsa ones for the glider and helicopter recovery rocket, but you can substitute.For the launcher, you will need a keyless drill chuck and a 1/2-20 thread and a 3' long 1/2-20 bolt, as well as a 12 volt cigarette lighter plug and socket for the 12 volt external power connection. (You can build the launchers without these parts, or even retro fit them later.)Most of these parts are available right here on Amazon. You might as well get that free shipping! All other parts are usually easy to find locally.One member of the local rocket club decided I wrote this book to have an excuse to build a lot of rockets, launchers and trackers. I asked him not to spill my secrets to my wife. I hope you'll keep it quiet too, and that you have as much fun building them as I did! Read more See all Editorial Reviews

The design is useful: the name of each section appears on the top left of each spread, and the title of the current entry appears on the top right. The coverage is broad (including everything from the status of Pluto as a planet to how we keep time to X-ray crystallography) and will keep readers engaged. The explanations are clear, even for challenging subjects, and the author often lightens the tone with humorous asides and puns. For instance, he likens the iron-rich internal structure of Mercury to 'a Ferrero Rocher chocolate…or Ferrous Rocher' and uses the concept of Elvis Presley and his fans to describe the way that particles gather around the Higgs boson. The layout is bright and image-filled. Often, numbered images are used to help elucidate complex processes, such as how the European Space Agency's comet chaser probe Rosetta targeted its prey. Most of the spreads feature white text on a black background. Key phrases appear in boldface text. (Some of the smaller white text featured in annotations is difficult to read.) Boxed areas featuring text on nonwhite backgrounds are used to introduce and highlight concepts. VERDICT This book is certain to appeal to students studying science as well as armchair enthusiasts and would be a solid choice for libraries looking to supplement their science collections.—Maren Ostergard, King County Library System, Issaquah, WA Read more Review 'Detailed diagrams are one of the book's strongest points, as they provide the clearest explanations of difficult physics concepts.' — Booklist Read more See all Editorial Reviews

Synopsis of the original bookChapter-by-chapter summariesKey takeaways from each chapterA history of the Los Angeles Central LibraryEditorial ReviewBackground on Susan OrleanAbout the Original Book:Susan Orlean uses the 1986 Great Fire at the Los Angeles Central Library as the backdrop to explore the history of libraries and librarianship in the United States. In the end, there is no clear resolution about how and why the fire started. However, the author is clear that libraries have endured all types of fires, both physical and metaphorical. Orlean shows the biggest threat to the Los Angeles Library System, like other public library systems, is the threat of irrelevance. For her part, Orlean sees the library as ever-evolving and able to adapt to modern needs rather than succumb to them. Her book is both a history of libaries as well as a love letter to them.

Live in Light: 5-Minute Devotions for Teen Girls

Pdf Young Adult Live in Light: 5-Minute Devotions for Teen Girls

Pdf:Live in Light: 5-Minute Devotions for Teen Girls.Review 'I believe to my very core that staying close to the Lord through daily study of the Scriptures is crucial to our Christian journey. That is why I am tickled about Melanie Redd's new devotional for teen girls, Living in Light. The format is easy to read and offers a Scripture, some words of encouragement from Melanie and a point for reflection. Melanie has worked with girls and women for decades and I cannot think of anyone better to pen this book. If you want a starting place for your relationship with Jesus, or if you want to deepen your walk with Him, this book will be your go-to devotional.' Leah Adams, blogger, speaker, and life coach at leahadams.org. Read more From the Author As a seventh grader, I was approached by an older girl about spending weekly time one-on-one learning what it meant to walk with Jesus personally. Each week, we met to talk about things like having a quiet time, prayer, reading the Bible, and living for the Lord. Then, in 9th grade, I attended a summer camp where God really got a hold of my heart. I completely surrendered my life to Him and began an incredible adventure walking with Him. I've never gotten over it! So, when asked to write a devotional book for teen girls encouraging them to walk with God, I jumped at the opportunity. To inspire, challenge, and cajole young women to walk in the light and begin their adventure with Christ--this excites me. For you see, I believe that when girls completely surrender to the Lord, they grow into women surrendered completely to Him. When God grabs their hearts and draws them into the light at ages 12 and 16 and 19, they will never want to leave the light. My prayer is that God will get the attention and the affections of teen girls across the globe and pull them in close to His light! Read more See all Editorial Reviews

Pdf Young Adult Summary Guide | WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING | Book by Delia Owens

Pdf:Summary Guide | WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING | Book by Delia Owens.Where the Crawdads Sing Summary & Study Guide includes comprehensive information and analysis to help you understand the book. This study guide contains the following sections:Plot SummaryChaptersCharactersSymbols and SymbolismSettingsThemes and MotifsStylesThis detailed literature summary also contains Quotes and a Free Quiz on Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens.The novel’s main narrative opens in the marshland near the fictional town of Barkley Cove, North Carolina. Seven-year-old Catherine “Kya” Clark lives in a shack in the swamp with her mother, father, and siblings. However, one day, Kya’s mother leaves the shack forever in order to escape the physical abuse inflicted by Kya’s father. Kya’s siblings soon leave on their own as well, leaving only Kya and Pa. Pa spends increasingly more time away from the shack over the years, and when Kya is about ten years old, Pa leaves forever. Kya has become thoroughly self-sufficient by this time, living on the land and occasionally trading in town for necessary supplies.When Kya is 14 years old, a kind local boy named Tate Walker begins to visit Kya, and he teaches her how to read. He is about four years older than Kya. He also gives Kya his old textbooks from school. When Kya is 15 years old, she and Tate fall in love, but Tate insists that they do not have sex until Kya is older. Tate soon leaves for college, and although he promises to love and remember Kya, Kya feels abandoned. When Kya is 19 years old, she suddenly becomes attracted to a young local man named Chase Andrews. Chase begins visiting her often. Chase says that he loves her and is eager to have sex with her. Kya refuses at first, but after about a year, she consents to sex.Tate eventually returns to Barkley Cove in order to perform scientific research on the marshland. He visits Kya and asks for forgiveness, but she refuses to take him back. Tate sees that Kya has performed much of her own research on the marshland, and he urges Kya to submit it to publishers. Tate also warns Kya that Chase is a dishonest womanizer. One day, Kya sees in the newspaper that Chase has become engaged to someone else. She is heartbroken. Later, she submits her research to publishers, and when she is 22 years old, a book of her research is published under her name. Kya’s brother Jodie sees the book in a store and returns to the swamp to reconnect with Kya. Jodie encourages Kya to give Tate another chance.Chase eventually visits Kya and says that he wants to continue his relationship with her, despite the fact that he is married to someone else. When Kya refuses him, Chase tries to rape her. She hits him and escapes. Kya realizes that because Chase is such a popular member of the town, and because she is an outcast for living in the swamp, she has no recourse. One day, in October of 1969, Chase’s body is found near the swamp. He appears to have fallen—or possibly have been pushed—out of a fire watchtower. The sheriff investigates and arrests Kya. However, the evidence is inconclusive and circumstantial, and Kya is acquitted. She and Tate declare their love for each other, and they live together in the swamp. Kya continues her career as a naturalist, and Tate continues his career as a researcher. Kya dies at age 64, after which Tate finds evidence that seems to prove that Kya killed Chase. He disposes of the evidence so that no one will ever find it.

On Blossoming: Frank and Practical Advice on Our Bodies, Sexual Health, Sensuality, Pleasure, Orgasm, and More

Pdf Young Adult On Blossoming: Frank and Practical Advice on Our Bodies, Sexual Health, Sensuality, Pleasure, Orgasm, and More

Pdf:On Blossoming: Frank and Practical Advice on Our Bodies, Sexual Health, Sensuality, Pleasure, Orgasm, and More.This is not your typical sex ed book. Instead of typically puritanical views on sex and puberty, On Blossoming focuses on incorporating the principles of pleasure into sex education for our youth and creates a new paradigm of human sexuality. This book takes on a taboo topic in our culture backed with a compelling mixture of research and personal experience.Author Gia Lynne’s biggest question is, how can we expect to have sexual health if we do not learn about pleasure before our first sexual experiences? Our collective social stigma around talking about sex—most of all good sex—prevents these conversations from happening and it’s having a detrimental effect on our teens of all genders and our society as a whole. On Blossoming will teach you and your teens:How to navigate conversations on “the birds and the bees”;How to effectively communicate with parents, friends, and partners;To explore the differences between sensuality and sexuality;To learn about the entire anatomy of the clitoris;How sex can be open, communicative, and fun every time; andHow to know and explore your own body. Written for people of all ages and genders, it’s time to rework the standard script of sexual education and fill in the gaps. Instead of primarily addressing the medical aspects of puberty or potential problems, Lynne presents solutions and provides tools for creating positive experiences in the realms of communication, pleasure, and happiness.

The Adopted Teen Workbook: Develop Confidence, Strength, and Resilience on the Path to Adulthood

Pdf Young Adult The Adopted Teen Workbook: Develop Confidence, Strength, and Resilience on the Path to Adulthood

Pdf:The Adopted Teen Workbook: Develop Confidence, Strength, and Resilience on the Path to Adulthood.Review “What a wonderful resource for adopted teens and families! Neiman deftly captures the central themes of identity and loss, putting words to feelings that often go unspoken. Her workbook includes mindfulness and self-care, so needed in today’s technology-saturated world. I love how she interweaves mindfulness and managing stress with difficult feelings and their adoption narrative. I’ll be recommending this to all of the adoptive families I know and work with!” —Katie Naftzger, LICSW, author of Parenting in the Eye of the Storm (Katie Naftzger, LICSW)“Barbara Neiman’s The Adopted Teen Workbook is a remarkable intervention in the challenges facing adopted youth and teens in foster or kinship care. Drawing on years of experience in the discipline of mindfulness, Neiman’s workbook provides a series of carefully devised exercises that engage body and mind, opening a space for meditation and reflection on the realities of loss and abandonment. This workbook has the potential to be a powerful tool not only for the adopted, but for those whose lives have been transformed by adoptive kinship.” —Barbara Yngvesson, professor emerita of anthropology at Hampshire College in Amherst, MA, and author of Belonging in an Adopted World (Barbara Yngvesson)“Adolescence is a joyous yet often challenging time for families as teens work through issues involved in identity formation. This is particularly true for adopted teens, who not only must determine who they are and where they came from but must face the issue of abandonment by their birth parents. Resources for adoptive families in this area have been lacking, but this void has been filled. In The Adopted Teen Workbook, Barbara Neiman offers a practical road map that will greatly assist adoptees and their parents in jointly navigating a safe passage to adulthood.” —Dana E. Johnson, MD, PhD, professor in the department of pediatrics, Adoption Medicine Clinic, University of Minnesota (Dana E. Johnson, MD, PhD)“I am happy to share that I reviewed The Adopted Teen Workbook by Barbara Neiman. Having worked as a psychologist with adopted teens for the past twenty years, the book offers some very useful resources that can be used to further explore issues that adoptees experience. I think the workbook would be most useful as a supplemental resource for therapists so that teens can continue to explore along with the support of their therapists.” —Amanda L. Baden, PhD, professor and licensed psychologist in New York City, NY (Amanda L. Baden, PhD)“Barbara Neiman’s workbook provides a practical, empowering tool for fostered and adopted teens that acknowledges their trauma and provides resourceful tools to assist them in their physical and emotional self-care and self-actualization. A resource which would be valuable to all fostered and adopted teens.” —Judith Craig, BSW, transracial adoptee, and subject of the documentary Adopted ID (Judith Craig, BSW)“This workbook is a valuable contribution to the adoption literature. Barbara has provided teens, young adults, and their family members a treasure trove of creative and practical activities to help guide them through the myriad of feelings and experiences related to their adoption journey. Therapists will find this a welcome resource in their work with adoptees and their families.” —Ricki Bernstein, adoptive parent and psychotherapist (Ricki Bernstein)“This workbook is a comprehensive and compassionate guide, written by a woman who is both an adoptive mother and a skilled teacher of meditation, yoga, and wellness. Barbara Neiman covers a range of issues— from ethnic and racial family differences to feelings of vulnerability, abandonment, hurt, and shame—with sensitivity, real-life stories of those she’s served, and easy-to-follow tips and practices. Use of these practices will enable any reader to handle the myriad challenges that might arise for an adopted or foster teen. I cannot recommend this book highly enough!” —Sharon Rosen, LMT, CWC, is a self-care coach, meditation teacher, and author of Crazy World, Peaceful Heart (Sharon Rosen, LMT, CWC)“The exercises in this workbook, both written and physical, can benefit and empower all of us—not just adopted teens. The case examples that Barbara Neiman presents shine light on a once secretive topic, and the scenarios provide language and context for discussion, thought, and self-realization. I was adopted in 1957, in an era when the topic was unspeakable. As a young person I would have more than welcomed the support and guidance that this workbook affords.” —Lauree Feldman, artist (Lauree Feldman)“Kudos to Barbara Neiman for meeting an extraordinary but often neglected need—how to support adoptive children in their process of claiming identity. This process, especially for preteens and teens, involves feeling whole while negotiating diverse environments—biological and cultural—and doing all of this ‘within their own skin.’ Building on the outcomes of research from researchers like Beatrice Beebe and Suzi Tortora who understand the importance of movement and the body in feeling connected, trusting, and content, The Adoptive Teen Workbook provides practical steps and wise advice. The workbook activities stem from real life—the depths of experience—as a mother and as a professional. This is a book I will recommend wholeheartedly to families, somatic educators, and mental health workers.” —Martha Eddy, CMA, RSMT, EdD, author of Mindful Movement, and founding director of Dynamic Embodiment (Martha Eddy, CMA, RSMT, EdD)“Barbara Neiman has created a wonderful, easy-to-understand resource for the entire family, with a focus on adoption. The personalized, real-life case studies are an added gift that help teens relate to the subject and guide them through the exercises.” —Carolyn Bosa, adoptive parent (Carolyn Bosa) Read more About the Author Barbara Neiman is a pediatric occupational therapist of thirty-five years, yoga teacher, body-mind centering practitioner, and national speaker on trauma-informed yoga and mindfulness strategies for professionals and adoption. Barbara is author of Mindfulness and Yoga Skills for Children and Adolescents and the card deck, My Calm Place. She is an adoptive parent who accompanied her young adult on a birth search journey.

Fu avoids the obvious and tidy, allowing us to imagine what happens next''I loved it for its portrayal of each of the girls... and for showing that a single incident can colour your entire life''A thoroughly entertaining, complex novel full of intricate insights into human nature' Read more

The Music of What Happens

Pdf Young Adult The Music of What Happens

Pdf:The Music of What Happens.From the award-winning author of Openly Straight, a story about two teens falling in love over a summer that throws everything possible to keep them apart. Max: Chill. Sports. Video games. Gay and not a big deal, not to him, not to his mom, not to his buddies. And a secret: An encounter with an older kid that makes it hard to breathe, one that he doesn't want to think about, ever. Jordan: The opposite of chill. Poetry. His "wives" and the Chandler Mall. Never been kissed and searching for Mr. Right, who probably won't like him anyway. And a secret: A spiraling out of control mother, and the knowledge that he's the only one who can keep the family from falling apart. Throw in a rickety, 1980s-era food truck called Coq Au Vinny. Add in prickly pears, cloud eggs, and a murky idea of what's considered locally sourced and organic. Place it all in Mesa, Arizona, in June, where the temp regularly hits 114. And top it off with a touch of undeniable chemistry between utter opposites. Over the course of one summer, two boys will have to face their biggest fears and decide what they're willing to risk - to get the thing they want the most.

There would be no ties in this race - only a winner and a loser - and the prize was a nationwide monopoly in electric current. Brimming with action, suspense, and rich historical information, this rousing account reveals the true story behind one of the world's defining scientific competitions.

Countdown to College: The Essential Steps to Your Child's Successful Launch

Pdf Young Adult Countdown to College: The Essential Steps to Your Child's Successful Launch

Pdf:Countdown to College: The Essential Steps to Your Child's Successful Launch.After all the testing and touring and applying, your child has been accepted to college. Congratulations! Now what? Every new student grapples with making a successful transition to college—with remaining healthy, happy, grounded, and in school. Indeed, the national statistics are sobering: One in three freshmen will not come back for sophomore year, and less than 50 percent will graduate on time. A student’s adjustment is key, especially during the period starting with the lazy summer months before move-in and ending at the dizzying close of a student’s first semester. Distilling lessons and sharing stories (some cautionary, some entertaining, all helpful) from her long college advisory career, three-time Ivy League dean Monique Rinere presents a unique month-by-month road map to a college experience that is rich, rewarding, and successful for teens and parents alike. Taking parents from the moment the acceptances arrive to the end of the first college semester, her expert advice covers: • assessing the right fit among your child’s options: who and what to ask to get the real scoop on campus and academic life • understanding actual costs: considering hidden expenses, financial-aid and scholarship fine print, loans, and work-study opportunities • parenting through the senior slump so that students don’t jeopardize their hard-won college spot • talking to your child about freshman culture shock and their new freedoms around parties, food, finances, and sleep • what your child needs to know about working with an academic advisor, interacting with professors, and creating their own community of advisors • how to help your rising freshman create a conceptual bridge from what they are, a graduating high school senior, to what they want to be, a college alum • time-management and class-scheduling tips to help your child pick an appropriate class (and extracurricular) load • advice for parents facing the emptying nest: letting go of your anxieties about your child’s autonomy and seizing this opportunity to reinvent your life in new and intentional ways“A valuable and comprehensive guide for parents of college-bound students . . . The months between high school and college are a critical time, but Dr. Monique Rinere gives you confidence that everything will be all right.”—Marvin Krislov, president, Pace University

Pdf:Brutal Curse.From Carey L. Bond, a fairy tale retelling where Alice in Wonderland meets Beauty and the Beast  Prince Carden of Tierney lost his home, family, and claim to the throne in one fell swoop when he rebelled against his father for a cause he knew was right. Instead of wallowing in despair, he embarks on a new journey, starting a new life on the Southern Isle. When he finds himself caught in a web woven by the famously ruthless fae queen, Coeur, he insults her and she vows to teach him the most difficult and heart-breaking lesson he will ever learn: that humans are incapable of love, and that hearts are beastly things.  Arabella wasn't really living, she was existing and surviving as best she could. A chance encounter with Carden changes everything for her, but the deadly game he's dragged her into might cost her life. Still, she agrees to play. The rules the fae queen gives them are vague, and it's obvious there are things Queen Coeur isn't telling them. She's sure of it. But what she does know is that together, she and Carden must pass a series of tests and trials. If they fail, game over. But if they succeed, she just might be able to restore her family and carve out the life she's always envisioned.

She's content helping around the home she shares with her parents and eight siblings; it may be a dull life, but it's all she's ever known...until a polar bear arrives at their tiny cottage and offers up a strange proposal.  After spurning his young stepmother's advances, Prince Dyre is cursed to spend his days in the body of a polar bear. To break the curse, he must find a woman to fall in love with him and stay with him for a year - but the woman of his choosing can never learn he is truly a man or Dyre will be forced into a future even worse than spending his days as a polar bear. He thinks Hel could be the one to break the curse, but if Hel ever finds out what brought them together, he may lose her forever.  Nobody ever crossed Viveka, queen of Aldavellir, and lived to tell about it. Dyre is the only man alive who has turned her down, but she'll have him whether he likes it or not. She'll make it impossible for the girl he's chosen to last long enough to break the curse. After all, queens don't have to play fair.  CurseBreaker is perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas and Erin Summerill!

Pdf Young Adult Roller Coaster Road: Traveling Through Tragedy Towards a Destination of Love and Happiness

Pdf:Roller Coaster Road: Traveling Through Tragedy Towards a Destination of Love and Happiness.Review Sometimes in a family there are areas of emotion that are often overlooked and never realized until years in the future. I admire Tammy's courage to put pen to paper which no doubt opened up old wounds to reveal the pain of losing a sister to a tragic accident followed by the unfortunate depression of her Mom and subsequent death. The raw truth conveyed in this story of how a young girl, feeling insecure was trying to make sense of her role in managing all these losses is heartbreaking.This is an incredible story of a young girl's journey through death, heartache, loneliness, perplexity and despair and then rising up to an amazing life she always dreamed of and filled with sheer happiness. Tammy Ward was able to capture her story in a way that I believe will connect with many young girls who have suffered severe trauma and will encourage them to never give up on their dreams of finding happiness.Linda McLean, #1 International Bestselling Author, CEO & Founder of McLean International -Business & Life Coaching Read more About the Author Grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio but also lived in Columbus, OH, Naperville, IL and Cranberry Township, PA.

The Weight of a Thousand Feathers

Pdf Young Adult The Weight of a Thousand Feathers

Pdf:The Weight of a Thousand Feathers.From School Library Journal Gr 9 Up{amp}mdash;This first-person work of realistic fiction features Bobby Seed, a teen who has been foisted into the role of 'carer,' a term American readers might find unfamiliar but will soon understand as they read about Bobby's wisecracking and loving mother becoming less able to take care of herself and her family because of her multiple sclerosis (MS). Not only must Bobby manage school and dinner, but he must also attend to laundry and all his mum's personal needs. Add to that coping with a younger brother with some cognitive and behavioral challenges of his own, and the teen badly needs a solid friend like Bel whose romantic feelings Bobby does not return. He also begins to attend a support group for other teen carers, where he meets Lou, a guy with a Vespa and an American flavor of cool, whom Bobby does find attractive. The book's second half sees Bobby rooming with Lou at a weekend group outing, trying to provide his mum with pot at her nostalgic request to relive her youth while she still can, and hoping to manage even more unthinkable requests as she faces the total loss of body control. While the story is important, the writing style and poor pacing fail to pull teens into Bobby's narrative. VERDICT An additional purchase.{amp}mdash;Suzanne Gordon, Lanier High School, Sugar Hill, GA Read more Review “Bobby's first-person narration is a masterful and very realistic blend of sarcasm, shame, hopefulness, earnestness, and anger. . . . Uncompromising, unflinching, and unsentimental.” ―Kirkus Reviews, starred review“The relationships depicted, especially between Bobby and his mother, are raw and real, and readers will be rooting for this family . . . A heavy, well-written examination of ethics and family bonds.” ―Booklist“A timeless allegory . . . Conaghan tackles the complexities of war, occupation, and totalitarianism in a direct and accessible way.” ―Kirkus Reviews on THE BOMBS THAT BROUGHT US TOGETHER“Conaghan presents a compelling situation with no easy answers; it's easy to sympathize with Charlie's moral and ethical dilemmas, and the dichotomy between Old Country and Little Town could fuel provocative discussions.” ―Publishers Weekly on THE BOMBS THAT BROUGHT US TOGETHER“This accomplished new novel establishes Conaghan as a major talent . . . Incredibly powerful and thought-provoking.” ―Bookseller on THE BOMBS THAT BROUGHT US TOGETHER“[T]his book brings light to communities where teens are struggling under a repressive government or regime pressured by a larger neighboring nation . . . Readers will fly through the last portion of the book in one sitting.” ―School Library Journal on THE BOMBS THAT BROUGHT US TOGETHER“Dylan is smart and caring, and beneath his realistically portrayed condition, he is a normal teenager with relatable concerns. As Dylan would say, this one is 'A-mayonnaise-ing.'” ―Booklist on WHEN MR. DOG BITES“Conaghan . . . does an excellent job of portraying his unconventional and memorable protagonist.” ―Publishers Weekly on WHEN MR. DOG BITES“An appealingly offbeat look at friendship, sex and what's really 'normal.'” ―Kirkus Reviews on WHEN MR. DOG BITES“Insightful, engaging, and immerses teens into the world of Tourette's . . . Uninhibited and compelling.” ―School Library Journal on WHEN MR. DOG BITES Read more See all Editorial Reviews

Hockey Player For Life (The Forever Friends Series)

Pdf Young Adult Hockey Player For Life (The Forever Friends Series)

Pdf:Hockey Player For Life (The Forever Friends Series).Review Good story - well suited for younger audience of 11 - 12 yr olds. Story has sufficient plot to maintain interest, and it offers some good 'life lessons'. The relationships between father & son, adolescent friends, youth player & adult coach, and amongst hockey teammates are well done. I think the story flows well from beginning to end. The story has an (age & stage) appropriate 'voice' for the thirteen year old protagonist, and his friends. I like the way that the main characters develop - Tom matures and learns the fun of playing a team game. Tom learns to accept Billy and sympathizes with his family problems. And Billy accepts Tom and together they win. Coach Brantford recognizes that his approach and punishing Tom isn't helping the team, so he apologizes. Well done. --Dave McColl, Canada Read more About the Author Howard Shapiro:Howard Shapiro has written four children's books, two graphic novels and a biography.

Conquer Negative Thinking for Teens: A Workbook to Break the Nine Thought Habits That Are Holding You Back

Pdf Young Adult Conquer Negative Thinking for Teens: A Workbook to Break the Nine Thought Habits That Are Holding You Back

Pdf:Conquer Negative Thinking for Teens: A Workbook to Break the Nine Thought Habits That Are Holding You Back.Review “With clear text, relatable examples, and useful exercises, this book gives teens the tools they need to break free of negative thinking habits and learn to manage their moods. Highly recommended!”—Eileen Kennedy-Moore, PhD, author of Raising Emotionally and Socially Healthy Kids“In clear language and with accessible, age-appropriate vignettes, Alvord and McGrath do exactly what their title suggests, presenting the nine thinking habits that drag teens down. Better yet, they outline what to do about them with a step-by-step action plan. Easy to read and easy to follow, this immediately useful book will change lives.”—Dawn Huebner, PhD, psychologist and author of the What-to-Do Guides for Kids“Freud based his psychodynamic therapy upon exploring the irrational mind. Beck based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) on correcting irrational thoughts. Following Beck, Conquer Negative Thinking for Teens by Alvord and McGrath is a clear and practical guide to CBT. This well-written workbook shows teens how to discard distorted thoughts and take control of their own mental health. Informed by years of clinical experience, this book is not just a call-to-reason for adolescents. It will also help parents and professionals think straight and ‘keep it real.’ A great addition to the CBT literature!”—Daniel G. Shapiro, MD, developmental and behavioral pediatrics; author of Parent Child Journey“Conquer Negative Thinking for Teens gives families the tools to change negative thought patterns that contribute to anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem. It provides relatable examples and fun exercises that give teens control over their thoughts and emotions. Every teenager (and parent of a teen) needs to read this book!”—Kathryn Stamoulis, PhD, LMHC, therapist and adjunct psychology professor at Hunter College“Concentrate on the habits that hold you back. Explore other negative habits as you see fit. Diagnose yourself, and then learn to think about your own negative habits differently. And to boot, you will learn some bonus skills such as being mindful of the present moment and putting enjoyable activities in your schedule. This therapeutic strategy of Alvord and McGrath is a no-nonsense, practical approach with very clear steps that a teenager can take to break negative thoughts and habits. The teen gets solid advice based on some very basic principles and procedures of CBT. It is a book I will use with teens and their parents, and it is a book I highly recommend to therapists who work with teens.”—K. Daniel O’Leary, PhD, distinguished professor of psychology at Stony Brook University, and recipient of the APA 2015 Family Psychologist of the Year Award and the 2015 Elizabeth Hurlock Beckman Trust Award for mentoring graduate students“Great book for any anxious or depressed youth! Mary Alvord has thirty-five years of experience doing CBT with kids and teens. Alvord has distilled the essence of what she does in CBT therapy into this book. Alvord walks a teenager through the process of catching, challenging, and changing the negative thinking habits that make us anxious or depressed. Her engaging style will grab tweens and teens. She does for her reader exactly what a good CBT therapist would do in person. The book is an awesome option for a youth who does not need, cannot find, or would prefer not to see a live CBT therapist. Kids and teens will recognize themselves in Alvord and McGrath’s stories, and experience her compassion and gentle, persistent encouragement to alter thinking habits that have made them anxious or depressed. I highly recommend Alvord and McGrath’s very readable book for use as a supplement to or alternative to therapy. An important addition to our toolbox!”—Jennifer Lish, PhD, director of the Worcester Center for Cognitive Behavior Therapy“Mary Alvord and Anne McGrath’s new book, Conquer Negative Thinking for Teens, is an exciting new resource for adolescents and their families. This is a practical and highly useful guide for young people who are feeling overwhelmed by negative emotions and thought patterns. Alvord and McGrath provide a clear path for adolescents to recognize common negative thought patterns, and to learn how to overturn those patterns in favor of a more realistic and balanced state of mind. I expect that my patients and their families will really benefit from Alvord and McGrath’s straightforward and accessible approach.”—Matthew Biel, MD, MSc, chief of the division of child and adolescent psychiatry at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, and associate professor of clinical psychiatry and pediatrics at Georgetown University School of Medicine“This book for teens is written in a manner that displays the authors’ ability to connect effectively with teens, comprehensive knowledge of the science pertaining to the treatment of internalizing disorders, and broad and deep experience base collaborating with teens to promote their wellness. I’m confident that teens will find this book to be very relatable and highly practical. Moreover, I believe teens would find that a small investment of their time with this book stands to significantly benefit their day-to-day mental health and wellness. Finally, I believe that clinicians would find that the many practical exercises in this book would synergize their clinical work with teens.”—David Palmiter, PhD, ABPP, author of Practicing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with Children and Adolescents and Working Parents, Thriving Families; fellow at the American Psychological Association; past president of the Pennsylvania Psychological Association; and professor of psychology and counseling at Marywood University“There is no other workbook like this.

Pdf:The Call of the Wild: The Graphic Novel (Campfire Graphic Novels).Review 'A top-notch graphic adaptation of one of my favorite classic novels. This graphic version is amazingly true to the novel. It evokes the same emotions and is as powerful a story as the novel. I can not think of anything that has been left out. . . . The illustrations are highly detailed with full backgrounds, using artistic devises and a pleasure to behold.' — Back to Books'Sachin Nagar’s art brilliantly captures the cold openness of the Alaskan landscape, vividly and beautifully. In fact, it’s hard to overstate it: The art here is simply breathtaking.' -- John Hogan, Graphicnovelreporter.com'I highly recommend Campfire’s comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in  a way that excites kids about classic literature.'— Chris Wilson, The Graphic Classroom (a resource for teachers and librarians) Read more About the Author Jack London, whose real name was John Griffith Chaney, was born 12th January 1876 in San Francisco, America.A resounding theme in his literary work was one of a struggle to survive. London's upbringing and his experiences in later life would serve as the grounding for his unique style of writing.Although deserted by his father, London was raised by his spiritualist mother who was known for her eccentricity. By the age of 14, London was developing a taste for adventure and he left school to work for a government fish patrol. He would later join the navy, and would explore most of America by travelling as a hobo on freight trains.In 1897 Jack London travelled to the Klondike hoping to strike it rich in America's last gold rush. While he did not find gold in the harsh arctic wilderness, London did discover a wealth of material he would later fashion into two of his best known novels, Call of the Wild and White Fang.Published in 1903, Call of the Wild benefited from the rise of the modern press and publishing industry, becoming immensely popular and launching London's career. Over the following years London wrote prolifically, drawing again on his Klondike adventure for White Fang and his experiences at sea as a young man for The Sea Wolf. London died on 22nd November 1916. Read more

Unjust Cause

Pdf Young Adult Unjust Cause

Pdf:Unjust Cause.From School Library Journal Grade 5-8-Davey Fischer, a fifth grader at a Jewish day school, is struggling to please a demanding father and teachers who don't understand him. Nothing he does is right; he can't spell or do long division, he can't shoot baskets, he can't even choose an ice-cream flavor without feeling inadequate. Davey's father refuses to admit that there could be anything wrong with his son, while his mother knows that he needs help. She finally persuades her husband to allow Davey to attend P'tach, a special education program where he can learn the skills he needs to cope with his learning differences. Davey's father is a dark, complex character riddled with guilt over his brother's death in Vietnam. While the narrator delves deeply into the thoughts and motivations of the boy and his father, and the book gives readers substantial information and insight about children with dysgraphia, the end result reads more like a psychological study than a novel. Books such as Jeanne Betancourt's My Name Is Brain Brian (Scholastic, 1993) or Joyce Hansen's Yellow Bird and Me (Clarion, 1991) offer children an understanding of learning differences while also providing appealing plot and characters. Parents, teachers, and therapists are more likely to appreciate Peterseil's efforts. In addition, the frequent references to Jewish education and prayer may further limit the audience to libraries serving a Jewish population; the book might find a readership among Orthodox young adults whose reading is often restricted to 'clean' or 'safe' books.Barbara Auerbach, Brooklyn Public Library, NYCopyright 1998 Reed Business Information, Inc.
