Something white moved, floating like the mist, and the Arabian stood there on the old mine road. White as an angel in the dark woods he stood, beneath the gray-green hemlocks, swan white against the black gravel of the road, so white he made Rhiannon's heart ache. And the proud lift of his head as he saw her, the flash of dark eyes and the flex of his fine neck, made her breath catch in her throat. She was so stunned when she saw him there that she didn't know what to do. Her bike hurtled toward him, and in the next instant he was gone like a wild bird. She caught a glimpse of long mane and flying tail, and then there was only the soft drumming of hooves somewhere beneath the trees. Then silence.

When boys act out, get into fights, or become physically aggressive, we can't avoid noticing their bad behavior. But it is easy to miss the subtle signs of aggression in girls--the dirty looks, the taunting notes, or the exclusion from the group-that send girls home crying. In Odd girl out, Rachel Simmons focuses on these interactions and provides language for the indirect aggression that runs through the lives and friendships of girls. These exchanges take place within intimate circles--the importance of friends and the fear of losing them is key. Without the cultural consent to express their anger or to resolve their conflicts, girls express their aggression in covert but damaging ways. Every generation of women can tell stories of being bullied, but Odd girl out explores and explains these experiences for the first time. Journalist Rachel Simmons sheds light on destructive patterns that need our attention. With advice for girls, parents, teachers, and even school administrators, Odd girl out is a groundbreaking work that every woman will agree is long overdue.
"The Iliad is the story about the last four days of the Trojan War. The war began after a young man named Paris stole Helen of Troy from her husband, Menelaus. The Greeks promised to help Menelaus fight for Helen, and they sent a thousand ships with him to Troy, including a ship with Odysseus on board. But the city of Troy was well defended, and the battle went on for ten years. Odysseus helped decide the war when he tricked the Trojans. He and his men built a huge wooden horse. Greek soldiers were hidden inside the horse, which was left outside the gate of the city of Troy as a gift. Once the horse was pulled inside the walls of Troy, the Greeks were at last able to enter the city and help win the battle. The Odyssey tells the story of Odysseus, who had left Troy after the war with twelve ships and more than 700 men. Yet only Odysseus returned home to Ithaca after many adventures and much sorrow. "
Homer's great epic describes the many adventures of Odysseus, Greek warrior, as he strives over many years to return to his home island of Ithaca after the Trojan War. His colorful adventures, his endurance, his love for his wife and son have the same power to move and inspire readers today as they did in Archaic Greece, 2800 years ago.

Charlie, otherwise known as Queen Charlaina of Ludania, has become comfortable as a leader and a ruler.

Or so she thinks. When the negotiation of a peace agreement with the Queendom of Astonia goes awry, Charlie receives a brutal message that threatens Ludania, and it seems her only option is to sacrifice herself in exchange for Ludanian freedom. But things aren't always as they seem. Charlie is walking into a trap--one set by Sabara, who is determined to reclaim the Queendoms at any cost.
