It's the last inning of a high school baseball game between arch-rivals Oak Grove and Compton. Center fielder Luke "Wizard" Wallace steps up to the plate--and is hit by a beanball, a wild pitch that shatters his skull, destroys the vision in his left eye, and changes his life forever.In this riveting novel, the events surrounding this pivotal moment are recounted through free-verse monologues by 28 different voices, including those of Luke and his Oak Grove teammates; the pitcher, Kyle Dawkins, and other Compton players; the two coaches; Luke's family members and teachers; and Sarah Edgerton, a new classmate who seems more affected by Luke's injury than his girlfriend is.With its unusual format, gripping subject matter, and economy of language, Beanball is a thought-provoking, fast-paced read.
Thirteen-year-old Lillian, miserable about being a "beanpole" and a loser, stops feeling sorry for herself when she learns the difference between a loser and a winner.
George Bean always wants to play on the roof of his apartmentbuilding. But only his older sister Anna can sit there, because she's writing a roof poem. Anna may be the first Bean to be in a book if the poem wins a contest at school. George decides to write a roof poem too. Soon all the Beans are on the roof writing the roof poems. All except George. He needs some inspiration. How will he get it?
Beany is looking forward to a wonderful summer vacation with her family and Norbett Rhodes. But after she sees him with another girl, she hopes to heal her broken heart by taking a motor trip to California with her brother Johnny and their nephew Martie, whom they will take to his mother Elizabeth. Funds are short after the family has to use money to pay for a horse named Quaker that they wish to take with them for a friend, so Johnny advertises for a paying passenger. Soon an elderly lady, Miss Opal, joins the group. But sparks really fly when another lady asks for a ride--the same girl Beany saw with Norbett! Many troubles and adventures are ahead for Beany and her companions in this fast-paced story of laughter, tears, discovery and love.
Beany Malone is unhappy when her boyfriend Norbett decides that they shouldn't go steady since he's staying away at college. On top of that, her father has remarried and Beany starts off on the wrong foot with her new stepmother Adair. So when two of the popular senior girls ask Beany and her friend Kay to join a secret club called the Triple O, Beany hopes that this new interest will make her forget her troubles. There's even a boy she likes, Andy, in the club. But soon Beany and Kay start to see problems in a secret society, and they may be getting in over their heads.
When Beany Malone stops long enough to evaluate her relative status at Harkness High, where she is a sophomore, she has to conclude she is a "mop-squeezer." Not a fanatical "stude" nor a superglamorous "queen," she is a doer-one who can dive enthusiastically into any project, whether it be school, the literary society, cooking, or pining away for handsome Norbett Rhodes, and above all, into looking after others. So it is no wonder that before Beany's father leaves for a long rest, he tells his spunky, blue-eyed, freckle-faced daughter, "Look after them, Beany." "Them" is the whole freewheeling Malone family: oldest sister Elizabeth, a war bride ; harried college freshman, Mary Fred ; and head-in-the-clouds older brother, Johnny. Beany is all set to tackle all their problems, but for once she has vowed not to stick her neck out too far. For she has found that when you open your heart to love, you may also open it to hurt. Fortunately, no Malone, not even Beany, can be that cautious for long. Beany's discovery that a "no strings" involvement is best makes this family story a warm, satisfying experience.
Helpful hints and directions for making Beany Malone's favorite dishes, from hors d'oeuvres to main dishes to foods for festive occasions.

For more than three decades, New York Times bestselling author Terry Brooks has ruled the epic fantasy realm with his legendary Shannara series. With each new novel the mythos has deepened, ever more fascinating characters have arisen, and increasingly breathtaking vistas of magical adventure have emerged. Now the evolution of one of imaginative fiction's most beloved worlds continues in the first book of the new series Legends of Shannara: Bearers of the Black Staff. Five hundred years have passed since the devastating demon-led war that tore apart the United States, leaving nothing but scorched and poisoned ruins, and nearly exterminating humankind. Those who escaped the carnage and blight were led to sanctuary by the boy savior known as the Hawk--the gypsy morph. In an idyllic valley, its borders warded by powerful magic against the horrors beyond, humans, elves, and mutants alike found a place they believed would be their home forever. But after five centuries, the unimaginable has come to pass: The cocoon of protective magic surrounding the valley has vanished. When Sider Ament, the only surviving descendant of the Knights of the Word, detects unknown predators stalking the valley, he fears the worst. And when Panterra Qu and Prue Liss, expert Trackers from the human village of Glensk Wood, find two of their own gruesomely killed, there can be no doubt: The once safe haven of generations has been laid bare and made vulnerable to whatever still lurks in the wasteland of the outside world. Together, Ament, the two young Trackers, and a daring Elf princess race to spread word of the encroaching danger--and spearhead plans to defend their ancestral home. But suspicion and hostility among their countrymen threaten to doom their efforts from within--while beyond the breached borders, a ruthless Troll army masses for invasion. And in the thick of it all, the last wielder of the black staff and its awesome magic must find a successor to carry on the fight against the cresting new wave of evil.From the Hardcover edition.
