Abby Diamond is an eleven year old girl who loves to solve the mysteries that surround her and her three best friends: Neils, Andrea and Alison. Being blind does not stop this girl detective from solving the mysterious cases that happen in her home and at school. Abby is smart, self reliant and ready to take on any problems that come her way along with her friends aka The Four Musketeers. Neils- An adorable redhead who is Abby's best friend and a tomboy by heart. If anyone loves a mystery better than Abby it is Neils. Andrea- A tall striking dark-skinned young girl who has both beauty and brains. Andrea is the leader of The Four Musketeers who never fails to have a successful ending. Alison- A quiet innocent girl who is the daughter of a famous movie star, Kaitlyn Summers. Although Alison has experienced the lifestyle of the rich and famous, she much prefers to live with her adopted dad, Audie who manages the school cafeteria. Jaxson- A chubby outcast with poor grammar but who becomes lovable and a dear friend to Abby and her friends. Glen- Jaxson's sidekick. Glen does not have a mind of his own, so he depends on Jaxson to be his voice. He is also known as "the parrot". Join Abby, Neils, Andrea, Alison, Jaxson and Glen when the group attends middle school and meets up with bullies and a teenage wizard. Children will learn about the mysteries of the Titanic and World War Two when Abby and her friends find a diary written in Braille. Who does the diary belong to and what secrets do the girls vow to keep for the rest of their lives?

It immerses one via superb background detail and sprightly dialogue in an entire era. From the opening pages, as the plot twists and turns, and right through to the end, surprises multiply, and simply put, this is a book which cannot be put down.

This book explores Jewish refugee movements before, during and after the Holocaust and to place them in a longer history of forced migration from the 1880s to the present. It does not deny that there were particular issues facing the Jews escaping from Nazism, but in this enlightening study the author emphasises that there are longer term trends which shed light on responses to and the experiences of these refugees and other forced migrants. Focusing on women, children, and 'illegal' boat migrants, the author considers not only British spheres of influence, but also Europe, the Middle East, the Americas, South Asia, Australasia. The approach adopted is historical but incorporates insights from many different disciplines including geography, anthropology, cultural and literary studies and politics. State as well as popular responses are integrated and the voices of the refugees themselves are highlighted throughout. Films, novels, museums and memorials are used alongside more traditional sources, allowing exploration of history and memory. And whilst the importance of comparison underpins this book, it also provides a detailed history of many neglected refugee movements or aspects within them such as gender and childhood. Written in a lively and committed style, the book is accessible to both a general as well as a specialist audience, and will be of interest to those interested in the Holocaust, migration and generally in the growing crisis of ordinary people forced to move.

Finalist for 2012 National Jewish Book Award in the Holocaust category During his time in the Vught concentration camp, the 21-year-old David recorded on an almost daily basis his observations, thoughts, and feelings. He mercilessly probed the abyss that opened around him and, at times, within himself. David's diary covers almost a year, both charting his daily life in Vught as it developed over time and tracing his spiritual evolution as a writer. Until early February 1944, David was able to smuggle some 73,000 words from the camp to his best friend Karel van het Reve, a non-Jew.
