Explanation of the Book:

Brett Stamos loved his job, he loved his country, but most all, he loved his wife. When he allowed his curiosity to override his good sense, he lost all three. Brett found out that written history does not always match up with real history. Unwittingly, he uncovered that a monumental hoax had been perpetrated on the American people. He discovered original history books that debunked six decades of misinformation that kept President Makluas government in power. Slated for termination on charges of sedition, Bretts sure death is averted when he is rescued by people that he once disavowed as invaders and trespassers. The simple Forester becomes the face of an underground Liberty Movement whose mission is to return the United States to its former glory as a beacon of freedom in a dangerous world.

Explanation of the Book:

In this narrative, Elizabeth tells the story of how she separated from her three young children. At the beginning of this book she had two goals in writing it. The first was to give each of her children a picture of their childhoods, from her perspective. She had hoped that in expressing her love as well as her limitations, their own healing would be enhanced. The second goal was to offer support to every mother everywhere, who has longed for freedom from the role of single parent, even if she did not act on that - and for every child who has felt abandoned in any way by these mothers, no matter the reason. There is hope and there is healing. Elizabeth realized as she completed this story, that there had been a third goal. She has been writing this book for herself. The process of writing has served as her own deep healing. For this, she is grateful beyond measure. She accepts herself then and now and chooses to focus on this ever growing present that she lives in with these three. All is well. They are all co-creating their life experiences in which they learn, change, grow and go on differently than before. Elizabeth is humbled by the love of her children and she celebrates with honor, their strong sense of family.

Explanation of the Book:

A true-adventure, coming-of-age tale set in the exhilarating first wave of Beatlemania … It’s 1964, and 16-year-old Janice is struggling in a grim foster home in Cleveland when she falls suddenly, deeply in love … with the Beatles. They and their music stir in her an ecstatic new sense of freedom. With a friend, she hatches a bold plan to escape their dreary lives and run away to London to meet the Fab Four. On their own for the first time—in “Beatleland”—they explore a new city, a new culture, and a new life, visiting the hippest clubs of Soho, meeting some nice English boys, hitchhiking to Liverpool … But unbeknownst to them, the runaways have become international news—and a hunt is on. Adventure and newfound freedom end abruptly when Janice is apprehended by London police and hauled home to Cleveland and an unforgiving juvenile justice system. Warned by responsible adults to put it all behind her, she doesn’t speak of her extraordinary adventure for more than fifty years. In this memoir, she looks back with fresh insight on the heady early days of Beatlemania and an era in America when young women exercising some control over their lives presented a serious threat to adult society.

Explanation of the Book:

From a Newbery Award–winning author: These seven beloved classics beautifully capture growing up and overcoming challenges across America. In her Regional America series, author and illustrator Lois Lenski presents realistic portrayals of unforgettable young people facing hardships and triumphs across the diverse United States. The Newbery Medal–winning Strawberry Girl follows day-to-day life for Birdie and her family on a berry farm in Florida, as they deal with heat, droughts, cold snaps, and difficult neighbors. In Prairie School, a young girl gets stranded at her South Dakota school by a winter storm; in Bayou Suzette, the Cajun Suzette strikes up an unlikely friendship with a Native American girl in the swamps of Louisiana; and Blue Ridge Billy is the story of a boy who dreams of playing the fiddle. Other novels follow the lives of a young farmer who wants to quit school and work on his family’s Iowa farm; an Asian-American boy adjusting to city life in San Francisco’s Chinatown; and an adolescent lumberjack in the forests of Oregon. Beyond changing the face of children’s literature, Lenski’s stories endure because of their moving and believable depictions of young people from often overlooked communities. Through her art, Lenski gives these characters a voice that continues to ring loud and clear for modern readers. This ebook includes Strawberry Girl, Prairie School, Bayou Suzette, Blue Ridge Billy, Corn-Farm Boy, San Francisco Boy, and To Be a Logger.
