However, the box itself, not its contents, draws FBI investigators onto the scene. Soon after the discovery, Grace is attacked by mysterious hooded figures.

Before long, Grace finds that friends, family and other locals are all linked to a decades-old mysteryâ¦one that speaks to the darkest side of human nature.

Item Description: Zonderkidz. Book Condition: New. 031072080X BRAND NEW!! MULTIPLE COPIES AVAILABLE. NEW CONDITION!! 100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE!! BUY WITH CONFIDENCE! WE SHIP DAILY!!EXPEDITED SHIPPING AVAILABLE. There's always a Martin. One Martin. Martin Boyle already has plenty to worry about. His germaphobic mother keeps him home from school if she hears so much as a sneeze, and his father is always off somewhere reenacting old war battles. Julia, the most beautiful girl in school, won't even speak to Martin, and the gym teacher is officially out to get him. Which is why Martin really doesn't need this curse hanging over his head. On a trip to the family cemetery, Martin wanders among the tombstones of his ancestors and discovers a disturbing pattern: when one Martin is born, the previous Martin dies. And---just his luck---Martin's aunt is about to give birth to a baby boy, who will, according to tradition, be named Martin. Martin must find a way to break the curse, but every clue seems to lead to a dead end. And time is running out.Editorial ReviewsReviewGr 5-7--Martin Boyle was 'born dead,' his lifeless body placed on his mother. Suddenly the baby moves. From that moment on, his mother does everything in her power to protect him from anything that could possibly harm him. In fact, she crosses over into paranoia and obsessive behavior. Martin's friend Charley is used to him getting on the bus each day with his portable air bag strapped to his chest and his mother running to school to check on his safety. During an annual trip to visit the old family cemetery, the boy realizes a strange correlation among the Martins in the family. It is tradition that the first boy be named Martin, but each time a new Martin is born, the old one must die. His Aunt Jenny is pregnant with a boy, due shortly. Martin knows that his days are numbered so his actions become reckless, which lands him in detention and gives him a chance to get to know his crush, Julia. He has been writing a story about a white knight, a black knight, and a princess, which Julia loves. The story symbolizes an escape that both Julia, a foster child, and Martin crave. The crisis of Martin's impending death is the joining factor in this odd hodgepodge of characters, including Poole, a spirited but unkempt homeless boy. They form a bond in trying to keep Martin alive. This is a sobering read in many respects as many of the adults are directly responsible for the emotional baggage these children carry. Julia fights against it, Poole runs away, Martin's sister cowers, but Martin triumphs. Minor characters such as the physical education teacher who employs completely illegal means of punishment will further fuel readers' angst. This is a great choice for discussions.--Julie Shatterly, W.A. Bess Elementary School, Gastonia, NC -- School Library Journal (School Library Journal )About the AuthorJonathan Friesen is an author, speaker, and youth writing coach from Mora, Minnesota. His first young adult novel, Jerk, California, received the ALA Schneider Award.

Item Description: Riverhead Hardcover, 2010. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Warner, New York Timescolumnist and author of the best-selling Perfect Madness: Motherhood in the Age of Anxiety, set out to write a follow-up volume exposing what she believed were capricious diagnoses and medication of children's mental and learning disorders. Instead, she fell down the rabbit hole to an alternative reality. Although she found the stereotype of pushy parents who shop for prescriptions or educational accommodations to fit their overscheduled children, Warner's heartbreaking conversations with pediatricians and the parents of children with mental issues such as attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, autism, serious depression, or bipolar disorders led her to see beyond her prejudices. As Warner passionately writes, appropriate care for childhood mental illness, if possible, is not necessarily probable. The perceived stigma of mental illness, deep-rooted suspicions of the medical and educational establishments, and, above all, merciless economic factors deny a shocking number of children with learning or mental disabilities the care and medications they need to succeed in school and society. Parents, social workers, and educators will find Warner's compelling study troubling but enlightening. Highly recommended. -Library Journal "This is a groundbreaking, thoughtfully argued book. My experience with families in the consulting room supports Judith Warner's nuanced argument exactly. The myth perpetrated by a breathless news media is fals: In reality, parents don'twant to medicate their children. And every one of us has family members and friends (or ourselves!) who could have led richer, less anguished lives had they been given appropriate medication during childhood for learning or emotional problems." -Wendy Mogel, Ph.D., author of The Blessing of a Skinned Knee "This is an important book, a landmark book, a triumph of honesty over bigotry and of patient learning over the the rush to judgement. I see every day in my office the awful, preventable damage done by zealots and reductionistic 'thinking'. Judith Warner rejects the panicky sound-bites that have plagued the discussion of children's mental health for the complexity of truth. She brings to all who read her book the resoundingly good and hopeful news of how much we have learned over the past few decades, how trasforming the best help can be, and how all children can turn into responsible, joyful adults. We owe her a huge debt." -Edward Hallowell, M.D., co-author of Super Parenting for ADDand author of The Childhood Roots of Adult Happiness "Readers love Judith Warner because she is open, honest, attuned, and curious. In We've Got Issues, Warner considers children and psychotherapeutic medicine: whether drug companies hold too much sway, whether doctors over-prescribe, but also whether troubled boys and girls might sometimes need more help than they get today. The result is a caring and informed book that will earn the trust and loyalty of a wide audience." -Peter D. Kramer, author of Listening to Prozac. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_1594487545

Item Description: Washington Square Press, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 1416540148 From the Publisher What if your ex was famous and adored by millions? What would you do if you had one chance to make him regret his entire existence? How much would you risk? Kate Hollis's ex-boyfriend's face plasters newsstands and TV, the Internet, and the multiplex. Jake Sharpe is one of the biggest recording stars on the planet, and every song he's famous for is about Kate. For over a decade his soundtrack has chased her - from the gym to the supermarket, from the dentist's office to the bars. Now thirty-year-old Kate gets the call that Jake has finally landed back in their Vermont hometown for an MTV special. The moment she has been waiting for has arrived. On the eve of their prom, Jake Sharpe vanished, resurfacing when his song "Losing" - about his and Kate's first sexual experience - shot to the top of the Billboard charts. And the hits kept coming, each more personal than the one before. Now Kate gets her chance to confront Jake and reclaim her past. But after eleven years of enduring protracted and far-from-private heartbreak, everyone in Kate's life has a stake in how this plays out. Kate must risk betraying the friends Jake abandoned, the bandmates whose songs he plundered, and her own parents, who fear this will dredge up a shared past more painful than any of them want to acknowledge. But after getting the call in the dead of night and jumping on a plane, can she turn back now? Newsweek dubbed The Nanny Diaries "a national phenomenon" and the New Republic proclaimed, "Thank God for Citizen Girl." Now McLaughlin and Kraus have written a poignant, humorous tale about modern celebrity obsession and coming of age during thedivorce boom. With flawless depictions of the 1980s, a charismatic heroine, and their signature biting wit, the authors offer up another lively and hilarious tale of a smart young woman looking for satisfaction in the chaos of contemporary culture. Publishers Weekly The team behind The Nanny Diariesand Citizen Girlreturns with another breezy chick lit portrayal of a woman wronged and, eventually, empowered. When Kate Hollis's childhood chum Laura calls from their Vermont hometown and announces the arrival of Jake Sharpe, a mega rock star and Kate's high school sweetheart, Kate jumps on a plane from Charleston, S.C. (where she's a sustainable development consultant) and makes for idyllic Croton Falls. Through it's been 13 years, Kate still has a primal need to confront not only the boy who abandoned her before the senior prom, but the musical pirate who used her personal life as fodder for his most celebrated songs and cheated his high school bandmates out of deserved recognition and royalties. Chapters switch back and forth between the present and the pivotal middle and high school years where Kate (then Katie) and Jake did the first-love thing: readers get to see Jake's growing he's-just-not-that-into-you-ness and how (surprise!) their Zima-fueled love (it was the '90s) was idealized. While one spends much of the book wanting to shout at Kate to give it up, go back to Charleston and get on with it, McLaughlin and Kraus do get the nagging need for closure in even the shallowest relationships comically right. (June)Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information Andrea Y. Griffith - Library Journal The film version of McLaughlin and Kraus's first novel, The Nanny Diaries, opens April 20; now comes their well-timed third novel. So far, the duo has exposed the underground world of New York nannies and satirized corporate America. What's left? How about a statement on celebrity culture and obsession? Enter 30-year-old Kate Hollis, a successful career woman who can't seem to shake her high school boyfriend. Why? The ex-boyfriend is Jake Sharpe, America's hottest musician, and his every no. 1 hit is a commentary on Kate and their relationship. When Jake shows up in their hometown after having abruptly left 13 years ago, right before the senior prom, Kate, too, comes home, finally confronting her ex. Bookseller Inventory # 55602

There are many boys in the world, all slightly different from one another, and most of them are referred to by names.

Item Description: Phoenix Yard Books, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Clare Elsom (illustrator). 190 x 128 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. I m Arthur and I m seven, and the other day, round the back of my grandparents house, I found an egg. It was a completely white egg, just like the ones you get in the fridge. I was so happy, because it isn t every day you find an egg. But when I ran back to the house to show it to my family, they made the biggest fuss ever. My grandfather, my grandmother, my parents and even the people from the television were trying to make sense of it. We finally had the chance to get to the bottom of the greatest mystery of all time. Which came first, the chicken or the egg?Arthur is a seven-year-old boy who is brilliant at being a seven-year-old-boy. When Arthur visits his grandparents house by the lake, more often than not, he becomes entangled in a new adventure, which he must solve with the help of his pet duck and useless dog - and hopefully without too much help from eccentric Cousin Eugene. These are witty stories full of understated humour and populated by quirky yet recognisable characters, and narrated by Arthur who has the rational worldview that comes exclusively from being seven-years-old.REVIEWS Meet seven year old Arthur, the delightful hero of this new series. He often visits his grandparents house and when he is there he has wonderful adventures, which he shares in these stories. Written from the viewpoint of a seven year old, they are perfect to capture a child s attention as they will so readily identify with Arthur -- PARENTS IN TOUCH Arthur is the most brilliantly created seven year old boy, full of a sense of adventure and curious too. Charmingly written and cleverly illustrated. Stories for boys and girls to enjoy with four more titles due -- ARMADILLO MAGAZINE These two stories {Arthur and the Mystery of the Egg and Arthur and the Earthworms} are ideal for reading aloud or as early read alone books for the younger child of six to eight or thereabouts. A set of strong family relationships lies at the heart of witty tales with a twist that children will want to hear again. With more titles in the pipeline, this is a promising series with lively illustations by Clare Elsom and welcome information on the author, translator and illustrator at the back of each book -- THE SCHOOL LIBRARIAN A great little series for newly independent readers. Short and simple, yet engaging and fun, this is a perfect series for children to try to attempt on their own. The illustrations help break the text and help set the humorous atmosphere.

Item Description: Phoenix Yard Books, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Caroline Magerl (illustrator). 194 x 130 mm. Language: N/A. Brand New Book. The first book in the Kingdom of Silk series. Griffin has a secret in his heart that nobody else knows - until he meets Layla.Griffin Silk is from an uncommon sort of family, parents Ben and Annie Silk have a brood of five daughters ( the Rainbow Girls ), a son named Griffin, Griffin s best friend Layla who might as well be a Silk , Nell - the tiny bit magic fairy grandmother. When he meets Layla, a princess with a daisy chain crown, he knows he s found a friend. So Griffin shares his inner thoughts with her and together they find a way to deal with his secret. Just like the mythical beast whose name he bears, Griffin discovers he has the courage of a lion. But it will take a friend like Layla to help him find the answers. This unique and tender novel is the first book in Glenda Millard s multi-award-winning Kingdom of Silk series, and will touch the heart of every reader. Through these whimsical, lyrical stories, Glenda Millard writes about families like no other writer writes about families. The books explore important themes of love, loss, friendships, home and belonging, in ways that pull at the heartstrings but are never over-sentimental. Honey for the soul. REVIEWS: Poignant and lovely. Millard has that rare gift of making you feel in a few pages that you ve known these characters, and this place, always. -- INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY (BEST CHILDREN S BOOKS). This is a special, lyrical and lovely story. It gives you a vibrant sense of the countryside, and even more, it takes you inside the mind of an ordinary but most extraordinary boy, Griffin Silk. It will surely touch your heart. -- BERLIE DOHERTY, DOUBLE CARNEGIE MEDAL WINNER. Soft, dreamy and slightly Bohemian. Sad yet hopeful, it s hard not to shed a tear at the end. Would read aloud well, engaging discussion. A real surprise. (A book of the week.) -- PETERS EDUCATIONAL BOOKS. The Naming of Tishkin Silk is a truly beautiful story of loss, hope, strength and love. Her depictions of rural Australia are stunning; the reader can nearly feel the heat of the sun through the branches of the apple tree. A splendid and unforgettable read. -- LIBRARY MICE. A gorgeous read with some of the best scene setting I ve ever read and with a family I adore. Even better, it s the first in a series! -- BOOKA UHA S BOOK NOOK. Griffin came into the Silk family after Scarlet, Indigo, Violet, Amber and Saffron. He came early in the morning on that uncommon day, the twenty-ninth of February. His father s prediction, considering the date of Griffin s birth, was that he would be an uncommon sort of boy. With these words The Naming of Tishkin Silk by Glenda Millard starts weaving gentle magic around your unsuspecting heart. Griffin is a member of the somewhat unusual and perhaps slightly bohemian Silk family, who live on the outskirts of a small Australian town. Griffin carries a secret deep inside him, a huge worry that he finds hard to share until he meets Layla, instantly recognisable to him as a princess because she is wearing a daisy-chain crown. Thanks to the thoughtfulness shown by his new friend, Griffin s courage grows and together they do something that heals the sorrow which all the family has felt after a terrible event no-one has been able to talk about for months. Just like Griffin, this is a truly uncommon short novel, the first in a seven part series. From unexpected characters to profoundly moving themes threaded together with sometimes astonishingly lyrical writing, this book is something utterly different and incredibly beautiful. I have never before come across such delicate and yet powerful writing in a novel for children. Unique, breathtaking and full of fierce love and deep sorrow, The Naming of Tishkin Silk is the sort of book that changes you forever, the sort of book you are just so glad to have inside you, to enrich even the happiest of days and to sustain you on dark nights. The dual aspect of this novel - intense sadness and intense happin. Bookseller Inventory # AA99781907912245

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1904 edition. Excerpt: .of all, while the more costly works, with elaborate colored plates, should be in every public library. Where it is possible, visits should be made to a museum and a happy hour passed in the study of the collection. Where there is no museum near at hand, parents, teachers, school authorities, library trustees and all interested in the development of children should unite in the work of forming one, the beginnings of which may be placed in the school-room or in the library. In a lesson like the present it is impossible to mention even by name the many family groups of an order whose representatives are legion. Their larvae, or caterpillars, are everywhere and feed upon every growing thing. Every plant has one or more enemies among the countless host. Some feed upon the leaves, some live within the fruit, a few bore into the solid wood, many live in the stalks of grasses, and one even feeds under water in the stems of water-lilies; and each kind of caterpillar changes at length into its own particular species of moth or butterfly. So a lifetime is not long enough in which to learn about them all, but there are certain groups that are so distinct or so common that they can be easily recognized, even by the children, with a little assistance, and these may form the beginnings of a collection. For example, the Promethea moth is the most common of the Giant Silk-worm family, or Saturniidae. Its cocoons are often found in winter, rolled up in a leaf and hanging to the slender branches of small wild cherry-trees. I know many boys and girls, and not a few men and women who were boys and girls once, who will often go clambering and frolicking through deep snow to some bush or tree of the wild cherry or ash, just to see. When found, these. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781236902559

Item Description: Plume, 2015. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Praise for Some Girls : "SOME GIRLS would have been riveting even if Lauren had merely illuminated the murky world of high-class prostitution. The fact that she does so with humor, candor, and a reporter''s gimlet eye is an added delight. But Lauren also reveals how and why a middle-class kid found herself in such a line of work--and how she got out."Jennifer Egan, author of Look at Me and The Keep "A heart-stoppingly thrilling story told by a punk rock Scheherazade, Lauren writes with such lyrical ease - the book is almost musical, an enduring melody of what it is to be a woman."Margaret Cho "SOME GIRLS takes you into a world so dramatic, it seems almost too outrageous to be true. Lauren lifts the veil on harem life and shows us the gritty truth of life in fantasy-land."Lily Burana, author of Strip City "Catfights, mad cash, priceless jewels -- welcome to the sultan's harem. What starts out juicy quickly turns soulful in this elegantly crafted, multi-layered stunner of a memoir. A spell-binding tale of one woman's exotic search for identity and true love."-- Rachel Resnick, author of Love Junkie "Lauren tells the story straight, without much moralizing, but the corruption of the aristocrats, the powerlessness of the women and the destitution of the life outside the harem speaks for itself."LA Times "[Lauren] is a deft storyteller and not afraid to provide candid descriptions of her life. A tight, sleek narrative. What's astounding is that Lauren writes without shame, confronting every hard truth. [Some Girls is] too good to read just once." Miami Herald "Lauren's story is not one of perpetual gullibility and woman done wrong incidents, but rather an entertaining.and hopeful tale about one young woman's endless quest to find herself. A beautiful, sweeping epic."Bookslut "Lauren is a gifted writer. Compelling." Library Journal "Lauren is a natural storyteller. She has a gift for metaphor, an eye for the odd detail." LA Weekly "Lauren lifts the veil off her secret harem life, sharing vivid and explosive details." The New York Post Praise for PRETTY: "Jillian Lauren writes with stunning, furious authenticity about self-destruction and the bitter road toward redemption. "Pretty" will knock the breath right out of you."Janelle Brown, author of All We Ever Wanted Was Everything "PRETTY is the real deal, a harrowing journey from darkness to light to real life. Bebe's unflinching, street-level search for salvation absolutely floored me, and Jillian Lauren's writing shimmers throughout with wit and authenticity."Antoine Wilson, author of The Interloper "Pretty is the not-so-pretty, utterly riveting, non-stop frantic and compulsively readable saga of Bebe Baker, a heroine who knows her way around a serious binge. Jillian Lauren renders the taste and feel of wretched excess - be it sex, drugs, food, or Los Angeles - with a savage veracity and style all her own. The prose, at times, drives with such ferocious urgency that the words seem not so much written as willed onto the page. Pretty stands out as a triumph of survival testimony. The author, plainly, is lucky to have survived - but the reader is luckier. Jillian Lauren is the real deal."Jerry Stahl, author of Permanent Midnight "BeBe Baker knows the ugliness of the world, yet finds plain truths in the multicultural pageantry of eastern Los Angeles. She is the kid you want to protect, the girl you'd definitely be friends with, the obliviously fetching female that all the boys lovean unlikely, unforgettable hero with a forever-searching soul. Pretty 's true beauty, however, is the author's ability to lovingly capture life's microscopic detailsright down to the cuticlesand offer them back up to us as communion."Shawna Kenney, author of I Was a Teenage Dominatrix and Imposters.

Entertainment Weekly "Many psychological thrillers have been undeservedly compared to Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl , but this one really does have strong similarities.But Perry and Gillece's voice is their own, blended nicely, offering insights into a marriage affected by grief." Shelf Awareness "That powerful thing, a beautifully written mystery driven by its exploration of the characters' innermost hearts of the inexorable ripples that loss sends out, and the terrible damage people can do to those they love most. Both as a crime novel and as an emotional journey, it's gripping stuff."Tana French, New York Times bestselling author of Broken Harbor and Faithful Place "A truly remarkable novel.

Kirkus Reviews "Deliciously taut.the haunting, sometimes vague flashbacks to Tangiers create a sense of alluring, exotic danger. Readers drawn to the intense emotion and zero-sum conflict of Andre Dubus III's House of Sand and Fog (1999) will love this one, as will those captivated by the missing-person intrigues in Laura Lippman's What the Dead Know (2007) and Lisa Scottoline's Look Again (2009)." Booklist , Starred Review "[ The Innocent Sleep ], with a premise that taps into the fears of every parent, is an entertaining thriller that fans of Tana French and Gillian Flynn will enjoy." Library Journal "Smart.Deceit, infidelity, and surprising twists make this a satisfying debut." Publishers Weekly "Impossible to put down. This pulse pounding thriller is bristling with suspensea fantastic debut."John Hart, author of Iron House and The Last Child "Accomplished.A dark mystery about unimaginable loss and irrevocable choices.Perry delivers an intriguingly emotional and unconventional debut."

Item Description: SIMON SCHUSTER, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 170 x 104 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. After travel writer Lea Sutter barely survives a merciless hurricane on a tiny island off the South Carolina coast, she impulsively brings two orphaned twin boys home with her to Long Island. Samuel and Daniel seem amiable and intensely grateful at first, but no one in Lea s family anticipates the twins true evil nature--or predicts that within a few weeks time her husband, a controversial child psychologist, will be implicated in two brutal murders. The horror is grisly (Associated Press) in legendary author R.L. Stine s creepy, fun read ( Library Journal )--an homage to the millions of adult fans who grew up reading his classic series and a must-read for every fan of deviously inventive chillers.

Item Description: Rarebooksclub.com, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 246 x 189 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1904 edition. Excerpt: .of all, while the more costly works, with elaborate colored plates, should be in every public library. Where it is possible, visits should be made to a museum and a happy hour passed in the study of the collection. Where there is no museum near at hand, parents, teachers, school authorities, library trustees and all interested in the development of children should unite in the work of forming one, the beginnings of which may be placed in the school-room or in the library. In a lesson like the present it is impossible to mention even by name the many family groups of an order whose representatives are legion. Their larvae, or caterpillars, are everywhere and feed upon every growing thing. Every plant has one or more enemies among the countless host. Some feed upon the leaves, some live within the fruit, a few bore into the solid wood, many live in the stalks of grasses, and one even feeds under water in the stems of water-lilies; and each kind of caterpillar changes at length into its own particular species of moth or butterfly. So a lifetime is not long enough in which to learn about them all, but there are certain groups that are so distinct or so common that they can be easily recognized, even by the children, with a little assistance, and these may form the beginnings of a collection. For example, the Promethea moth is the most common of the Giant Silk-worm family, or Saturniidae. Its cocoons are often found in winter, rolled up in a leaf and hanging to the slender branches of small wild cherry-trees. I know many boys and girls, and not a few men and women who were boys and girls once, who will often go clambering and frolicking through deep snow to some bush or tree of the wild cherry or ash, just to see. When found, these. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781236902559
