Girls Like Us

by Gail Giles

A 2015 Schneider Family Book Award Winner<P><P> With gentle humor and unflinching realism, Gail Giles tells the gritty, ultimately hopeful story of two special ed teenagers entering the adult world. <P> We understand stuff. We just learn it slow. And most of what we understand is that people what ain't Speddies think we too stupid to get out our own way. And that makes me mad. <P> Quincy and Biddy are both graduates of their high school's special ed program, but they couldn't be more different: suspicious Quincy faces the world with her fists up, while gentle Biddy is frightened to step outside her front door. When they're thrown together as roommates in their first "real world" apartment, it initially seems to be an uneasy fit. But as Biddy's past resurfaces and Quincy faces a harrowing experience that no one should have to go through alone, the two of them realize that they might have more in common than they thought -- and more important, that they might be able to help each other move forward.<P> Hard-hitting and compassionate, Girls Like Us is a story about growing up in a world that can be cruel, and finding the strength -- and the support -- to carry on.

by Zoey Dean

Girls on Film is the wickedly funny sequel to the bestselling A-List that takes readers behind the scenes of the intoxicating world of Hollywood glitterati. Seventeen year-old Upper East Side blueblood Anna ('pronounced Aaaanah') Percy has moved from posh Manhattan to the even more posh Beverly Hills, California, where she's living with her estranged dad for the rest of the school year while her mother travels to Europe with a friend. Girls on Film begins with Anna's feeling empowered after telling Ben to take a hike. He, however, continues to pursue her - refusing to go back to Princeton without a reconciliation. Anna's just not sure if she buys his New Year's cover story: that he was helping out a celebrity friend who nearly drank herself to death. In the meantime, Anna wonders if she and Adam have any chemistry. Anna also bonds with Sam, and after mentioning Ben's New Year's alibi, the girls try to guess the identity of the mysterious alcoholic celebrity. The list of suspects is a veritable who's who of A-List actresses. Sam invites Anna to a desert spa weekend where, in a climactic finish, we find out whether Dee is actually pregnant with Ben's baby, how Sam resolves her romantic feelings for Anna and, most importantly, whether Ben was acting with pure intentions when he left Anna alone on his boat. The fast times of Beverly Hills most beautiful and glamorous people drive the page-turning action of this irresistible, stylishly written novel.

Give Me Liberty! An American History Volume One (Seagull, 3rd Edition)

by Eric Foner

Designed as a textbook for high school students taking the Advanced Placement test in history, this comprehensive history of the United States would be suitable for regular high school and freshman college US history survey courses. This is the third edition; earlier editions have been widely used in two- and four-year colleges as well as high schools. The text is written in clear, uncomplicated prose that will be easy for general high school students to understand. The book is strong in economic history. The coverage of US history provides excellent depth for a general survey. It avoids the politically-motivated deletions of information that have marred many recent K-12 textbooks in the US. When speaking of painful historical realities such as slavery or smallpox, the author adopts neutral and quiet language in the main text to help readers understand the various perspectives of the time, and allows specific, accurate historical data given in inset texts to speak for themselves about the magnitude of suffering. The book uses a contemporary tone when speaking of the politics of the past, without historicism or gimmicks; readers are alerted to the election of President Polk or the votes-for-women question as fresh news and a live issue for people of that time, exactly as our elections and issues are now. The book offers detail on recent history, ending with the Obama election. It begins with a helpful overview of both North America and Europe just before the start of US history, which gives context for early US history and the contemporary meanings of Constitutional terms like "citizen" and "liberties," which are often quite different from our own. The book is clearly organized, and well illustrated with modern maps and images from the era under study. A short section at the beginning provides an orientation to the AP history exam. Within the book, each chapter begins with a timeline and ends with a bibliography of suggested reading and websites, review questions and essay questions, key terms, and a review table. Appendices include a variety of important documents such as the Constitution, as well as tables and figures, a glossary, and an index. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc. , Portland, OR (booknews. com)

The Gladiator (Crosstime Traffic, Book 5)

by Harry Turtledove

The Soviet Union won the Cold War. Now, more than a century later, the world's gone communist and capitalism is a bad word. For Gianfranco and Annarita, a couple of teenagers growing up in Milan, life in a regimented, surveillance-rich command economy is just plain dreary. Annarita's a hard-working student and a member of the Young Socialists' League. Gianfranco is a lot less motivated-but on the other hand, his father's a Party apparatchik. The biggest excitement in their lives is a war-game shop called The Gladiator, which runs tournaments and stocks marvelous complex games you can't find anywhere else. Then, abruptly, the shop is shut down. Someone's figured out that The Gladiator's games are teaching counterrevolutionary capitalist principles. The Security Police are searching high and low for the shop's proprietors, who've not only vanished into thin air, but have left behind sets of fingerprints that aren't in the records of any government on earth. Only one staffer is left: Gianfranco and Annarita's friend Eduardo. On the run, he comes to them with an astonishing story: he's a time trader from our own timeline, accidentally left behind when the store was evacuated. Eduardo can get back to his own timeline only if Gianfranco and Annarita will help him reach one of the other time trader sites in this world-and the Security Police will be on their tails all the way there.
