Leaving Islam for Christianity cost her more than she imagined, but gave more than she could have dreamed. Rifqa Bary grew up in a devout Muslim home, obediently following her parents’ orders to practice the rituals of Islam. But God was calling her to freedom and love. He was calling her to true faith. He was calling her to give up everything. Hiding in the Light is the story of Rifqa’s remarkable spiritual journey from Islam to Christianity. It is also the untold story of how she ran from her father’s threats to find refuge with strangers in Florida, only to face a controversial court case that reached national headlines. Most of all, it is the story of a young girl who made life-changing sacrifices to follow Jesus—and who inspires us to do the same.

Hiding in the Light is a young adult, action-adventure, coming of age story about the effects of bullying and the measures one takes to be accepted. Set in the South in the late 1960’s, it’s the journey of Joseph Graham’s efforts to find himself and accept himself while facing the injustices of adversaries. They mock his differences: His looks, his speech, and his thoughts are different from the other boys. This brings unwanted attention from the neighborhood bullies. The bullies and the affluent within his community all draw lines in the sand, and Joseph is pushed to the middle. He searches for a way to escape his life of lack. But poverty, anger, and abuse offer no open doors. So, he struggles to stand and fight the slings and arrows of his haters until his moral compass is shattered. Joseph becomes a pawn in the street game of thuggery. Trying hard to prove himself and fit in, he takes on the persona of his alter ego. Through this fictional character he’s able to hide his sorrows in the light. He pretends the hurt doesn’t hurt until he loses himself within his alter ego and spirals out of control; landing at death’s door. All while the bullies continue to sucker punch him with their verbal beat-downs. It wasn’t until he met the one he calls, “The Smartest Man Alive,” that his sun began to shine.

Recognized as a master of Italian cinema, Vittorio De Sica is perhaps best known and most respected for his critically acclaimed neorealist films of the period 1946-55. As this anthology reveals, however, his production was remarkably multifaceted. The essays included here - some newly commissioned, some reprinted, and others in translation - look at De Sica's varied career from many perspecives. Structured chronologically, the volume begins by introducing readers to De Sica's early popularity as an actor and singer during the years of Italian Fascism, and to his initial directorial efforts before the end of World War II. It was not until the postwar era, however, that De Sica made his mark in film history. Special attention is given to this critical phase of his career, which encompasses the neorealist films that made him famous: "Shoeshine", "Bicycle Thieves", "Miracle in Milan", and "Umberto D." When the neorealist movement waned after 1955, De Sica returned to his roots in Neapolitan comedy for a series of commercially successful films starring Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni. Memorable works from this period include "Two Women" and "Marriage Italian Style" as well as "Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow", which won De Sica an Academy Award in 1965. In one of his final films, "The Garden of the Finzi Continis", he returned to the subject of World War II and to the human tragedy characteristic of his best neorealist productions. This fine anthology offers a comprehensive critical survey that covers the entire scope of De Sica's career, and is an excellent resource for students, critics and film enthusiasts.

“In her ambitious third novel, Wicomb explores South Africa’s history through a woman’s attempt to answer questions surrounding her past” (The New Yorker). Set in a beautifully rendered 1990s Cape Town, Windham Campbell Prize winner Zoë Wicomb’s celebrated novel revolves around Marion Campbell, who runs a travel agency but hates traveling, and who, in post-apartheid society, must negotiate the complexities of a knotty relationship with Brenda, her first black employee. As Alison McCulloch noted in the New York Times, “Wicomb deftly explores the ghastly soup of racism in all its unglory—denial, tradition, habit, stupidity, fear—and manages to do so without moralizing or becoming formulaic.” Caught in the narrow world of private interests and self-advancement, Marion eschews national politics until the Truth and Reconciliation Commission throws up information that brings into question not only her family’s past but her identity and her rightful place in contemporary South African society. “Stylistically nuanced and psychologically astute,” Playing in the Light is as powerful in its depiction of Marion’s personal journey as it is in its depiction of South Africa’s bizarre, brutal history (Kirkus Reviews, starred review). “Post-apartheid South Africa is indeed a new world . . . With this novel, Wicomb proves a keen guide.” —The New York Times “Delectable . . . Wicomb’s prose is as delightful and satisfying in its culmination as watching the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean.” —The Christian Science Monitor “[A] thoughtful, poetic novel.” —The Times (London)

After passing through the portal to another realm… ...Ted Finley must put his trust in unlikely allies to survive. The Realm of Souls is a war zone, and Ted and Natalie are behind enemy lines. Badly injured and powerless, the two strangers to a new world must rely on a mysterious woman and her village to live to see another day. Erica LaPlante is down to her second-to-last option. Only a coordinated effort from Jennifer, Dhiraj, Travis and the rest of the gang will keep Erica from her last resort: death and regeneration. But fugitives at large can't hide forever, and some of them won't live long enough to clear their names. The Light, the Dark and the Ugly is the fourth novel in a YA Sci-Fi Fantasy series that features exhilarating combat, deadly foes, sharp humor, and a little romance. Author Bryan Cohen's Ted Saves the World series breaks darker ground in a chilling, action-packed fourth installment. Q & A With The Author Q - How would you describe the Ted Saves the World series? A - That's a stumper! I've always loved reading books and watching TV shows that mix genres together. It's like a buffet. How can you choose just one? Ted Saves the World is a combination of several different genres. It has the elements of a YA sci-fi fantasy series, but you might also call it a collection of paranormal books for teens and young adults. I've always loved horror books for teens and coming of age series best sellers as well, so you'll find a few dashes of each in the series too. Q - Why did you want to write superhero novels? A - I love challenges. Every year, I try to take on something new. I'd written some nonfiction, but I wanted to try writing young adult books for boys and girls alike. That's why it was important for me to write super-powered male and female characters. Also, given the recent boom of Marvel superheroes on the big screen, I wanted to take my own crack at the genre. Q - What does it mean to you when readers buy your books? A - It's an honor. Who knows if I'll ever be one of the young adult best sellers at the top of the list, but it's so amazing to see people reading my books. Like most writers, I used to think I wasn't good enough, so I didn't try. With the encouragement of my friends, family members, and readers, I was able to give this series a go. I'm eternally grateful for each reader who puts my books on their virtual shelf. Young Adult Sci-Fi and Fantasy Superhero - Suitable Age Range: 12 - 18+ yrs.
