Detailed book overview
Shackled by magic to Old Mother, Beetle Girl leads a life of solitude as an outsider in her Native American society.
When she is made to take up the role of Keeper of the Ravens, Beetle Girl must not only shatter the bonds of her wicked mother, but also go up against a powerful shape-shifter who threatens to destroy the village.
There’s also the challenge of solving the mystery of her past…
Corey, a fourth-grader, tells us about how his color deficiency made things hard for him in kindergarten.
As time goes by, he learns about the special way he sees colors. His color deficiency is a physical condition that affects quite a number of people. It is in no way related to how smart he is and he doesn’t let it weigh him down.
Corey's story is accompanied by a simple explanation of CVD: exactly what it is, the number of people it affects, how they acquired it, the challenges that may arise from it and recommendations on how to deal with CVD at home, at school and everywhere you go.
Having spent months on the battlefields of France and Germany, Daniel, an American soldier, isn’t prepared for the horror that comes with discovering the sheer inhumanity in the concentration camp.
Over the course of time, he befriends Avrum, a teenage survivor in dire need of "freedom" and Natalie, an overtaxed American nurse with the Army Evacuation Hospital who is dispatched to the camp.
Set against the backdrop of the liberation of the Concentration Camp at Dachau, this tale is about our frail realities and the immense power of hope.
