The 57 Lives of Alex Wayfare: A Novel

by M. G. Buehrlen

“Forget popular books like The Hunger Games and Twilight, M.G. Buehrlen’s debut novel is something that every young adult fan should read” (The Founding Fields). For as long as she can remember, seventeen-year-old Alex Wayfare has had visions of the past that seem so real they leave her breathless. For Alex’s visions actually wrench her from the present without warning, then return her with mysterious wounds and inexplicable aftereffects. Desperate for a normal life, Alex seeks to discover the meaning of her visions—and get rid of them. Then Alex meets an enigmatic stranger who tells her the truth: She is a Descender, capable of traveling back through her fifty-six past lives by accessing Limbo, the space between Life and Afterlife. Suddenly, descending back in time is irresistible to Alex, especially when the same mysterious boy with blue eyes keeps showing up in each of her past lives. But someone out there really doesn’t want Alex meddling with history. And they will stop at nothing to make sure her fifty-seventh life is her last . . . Filled with “beautiful prose, an intelligent plot, and a heroine as fabulous as she is unique,” The 57 Lives of Alex Wayfare is an adventure unlike any you’ve ever experienced before (C. J. Redwine, The Defiance Trilogy).

59 Reasons to Write: Mini-Lessons, Prompts, and Inspiration for Teachers

by Kate Messner

In order to teach writing effectively, teachers must be writers themselves. They must experience the same uncertainty of starting a new draft and then struggling to revise. As they learn to move past the fear of failure, they discover the nervous rush and exhilaration of sharing work with an audience, just as their students do. Only by engaging in the real work of writing can teachers become part of the writing community they dream of creating for their students. Kate Messner's new book, 59 Reasons to Write, shows teachers and librarians who teach writing how to be stronger role models for their students. Writing for my students provided me with appropriate mentor texts to share,- she writes. Writing with my students made me a mentor and a far better teacher.- 59 Reasons to Write grew out of Messner's popular online summer writing camp, Teachers Write. Throughout the book she offers mini-lessons, writing prompts, and bursts of inspiration designed to get you writing every day, whether on your own or as part of a group. Dozens of guest authors also share their writing processes and secrets, from brainstorming ideas and organizing research to developing characters and getting unstuck from writer's block. 59 Reasons to Write is for anyone who has always wanted to write but never managed to get into the habit. Daily warm-ups will help you flex your writing muscles and energize your teaching. As Messner shares, One of the greatest gifts of writing is the way it nudges us to look more closely not only at the world but also at ourselves.

The 66th Rebirth of Frankie Caridi #1 (The 66th Rebirth of Frankie Caridi #1)

by Johnny Marciano

Normally "back to school" means gathering supplies and buying new clothes, but Frankie Caridi has never known normal. So when her "back to school" consists of learning how to use crystals to power her mind and trapping marauding spirits, she adapts. But the secrets of magic are nothing compared to the secrets she learns about her own past."Real and otherworldly dramas collide. A twisty story with broad reader appeal...and the cliffhanger ending will leave readers hungry for more." —Kirkus Reviews"[H]umor, suspense, and a brisk pace will make for an enjoyable introduction to a promising contribution to the magical school genre." —BCCB, starred reviewFrankie is used to living in her younger brother&’s shadow. Lucie is outgoing, smart, kind, and has horns. Yes, horns. Frankie&’s life has always revolved around Lucie, so when she's told she must attend a new boarding school because Lucie has been given a full scholarship, she knows she has no other choice. But something about The Pythagorean Institute is off. The building looks like a prison, half of the students have horns like her brother, and the headmaster acts more like a cult leader than a principal. Even weirder, however, are the dreams Frankie has been having since she moved into her dorm. Dreams that sometimes seem more like… memories.Trapped in this new school with no way home, Frankie must get to the bottom of why the place unsettles her so much. But in learning about the Institute, Frankie learns more about herself--and her past--than she could ever have expected. What she discovers brings her out of her brother&’s shadow and gives her powers beyond belief, but the spotlight comes with its own set of troubles.

The 7 Best Things Smart Teens Do

by John Friel Linda D. Friel

In , therapists John and Linda Friel gave parents an easy-to-understand guide to overcome the seven worst mistakes even good parents make while raising children. Now they’ve written a book for teens based on the same formula: it includes the seven worst things even smart—and outwardly successful—teens do, and shows teens how they can change these behaviors and assure their success in life as they grow towards adulthood. This book was written expressly for teenagers as a unique roadmap into adulthood. It was designed to stimulate the brain as well as the heart because teenagers who listen to both can eventually negotiate adolescence successfully. It will appeal to teenagers who like to think, wonder, question and challenge, as well as to teenagers who feel that they haven’t quite figured out this “life” thing. The Friels show teens the seven things they need to do in order to overcome common roadblocks they face or will face. These are: Become competent—don’t expect to have self-esteem without becoming competent Master your feelings—don’t let your feelings run the show Break the silence—don’t silently scream instead of making yourself known Get healthy power—don’t avoid learning about power Face the serious stuff—don’t hide the really important things you're experiencing Find an identity—don’t avoid the struggle to find yourself Learn to stake out the extremes—don’t live only in the extremes.Written in clear, straightforward language and including many interesting and colorful story interludes, this book is an easy-to-use, powerful tool for all teens.
