Everything changes when Hattie Tamblyn's much-adored older brother, Will, enlists in the Canadian army in 1916 and is sent to fight in France. Hattie lives for Will's letters from the front, but her mother retreats into depression, her younger brother, Johnny, becomes violent and her father despairs of running the family farm without Will's help. Tension mounts when Hattie's father hires a young conscientious objector to work on the farm. Although his wealthy Toronto family is mystified and disgusted by his decision not to fight, David Ross's friendship with an elderly German musician has led him to question the narrow notion of patriotism that has overtaken the country. His appearance at the Tamblyn farm enrages Hattie and Johnny, who, like most of their neighbors, believe all "conchies" are cowards. As more and more of her childhood friends are maimed and killed overseas, Hattie fears for Will's safety. But when her own safety is threatened, it is David who protects her, putting himself squarely in harm's way. In a world gripped by prejudice, fear and hatred, David and Hattie discover that there are many kinds of courage and that real power lies in forgiveness and redemption.

Linda R. Rabieh examines Plato's two main thematic discussions of courage, in the Laches and the Republic, and discovers that the two dialogues together yield a coherent, unified treatment of courage that explores a variety of vexing questions: Can courage be separated from justice, so that one can act courageously while advancing an unjust cause? Can courage be legitimately called a virtue? What role does wisdom play in courage? What role does courage play in wisdom?

A blond-haired, blue-eyed Lutheran man is approached on the streets of Chicago by members of the Latin Kings so he may teach them how to pray, and he does so with grace--this man's story, one suspects, isn't going to be a typical one. Life has not been easy for Charles Featherstone. From being bullied by peers and teachers in school, to his refusing to become a bully himself by leaving the armed services, to wandering the world in search of work and finding unexpected hospitality as an outsider nearly everywhere, to witnessing the 9/11 attacks from his nearby office, Featherstone's story is a tale of survival akin to Jacob's wrestling the angel at the River Jabbok. It may well leave the reader limping a bit, too, for the encounter with God found in these pages is stark and startling. Truly God's love knows no bounds and cannot be captured by labels--but as Featherstone's life attests, that love just might capture you.

WHAT IS NORMAL? For Trevor, normal was fast guitar licks, catching game-winning passes, and partying all night. Until a car accident leaves him with no band, no teammates, and no chance of graduating. It's kinda hard to ace your finals when you've been in a coma. The last thing he needs is stuck-up Everly Jenkins as his new tutor-those beautiful blue eyes catching every last flaw. For Everly, normal was a perfect family around the dinner table, playing piano at Sunday service, and sunning by the pool. Until she discovers her whole life is a lie. Now the perfect pastor's daughter is hiding a life-changing secret, one that is slowly tearing her family apart. And spending the summer with notorious flirt Trevor Lewis means her darkest secret could be exposed. This achingly beautiful story about two damaged teens struggling through pain and loss to redefine who they are-to their family, to themselves, and to each other-is sure to melt your heart. Praise for Boys Like You: "The classic miscommunications, the emotional pushing and pulling, the "will she?" and "won't he?" of the destined-to-be-in-love. Readers of Miranda Kenneally, Jenny Han, and Susane Colasanti will enjoy Stone." -VOYA "The story handles challenging subjects like sex, drunk driving, and faith after tragedy in a sensitive and age-appropriate way ...just what readers need." -School Library Journal

I’ve been accused of being a rebel, but I’m not really. I simply answer the call of the wild that runs deep in my blood. I hear it every time I smell the musky scent of game and wet earth. I savor it over open fires and far-seeing places, and I dream of it on my bed at night when rain makes music on the roof and I begin planning the next adventure. Wild is more than a physical, untamed place. It is an unrestrained soul soaring on the wings of the wind. It is a connection to the heart of Creator Redeemer ... a total immersion in a Father’s love.” ,p> From a hospital room to the wilderness, set against the backdrop of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and linking those events with the deaths of Marin Luther King Jr. and Bobby Kennedy during the turbulent sixties era, Wild Woman is the journey of reconciling valued relationships and reaching for your dreams. It invites readers on a mental trip back through their own lives and challenges them to take a closer look at creation while offering an open door to fall into the arms of the One who created it. “Wild answers to wild questions you were afraid to ask.” —John Wiuff, counselor and creator of the Lightbox Method
