Overwhelming stresses in life can sometimes lead you to the point of walking away from your faith, especially when it appears that those who don’t trust God are prospering. In this discussion of Psalm 73, Bill Crowder examines Asaph’s story of pain, tears, loss, and disappointment. Encouraging you to focus on the condition of your heart rather than the perception of your eyes, It’s Not Fair shows how you can restore your confidence in God and trust Him by focusing on His goodness rather than your circumstances.

Dasha is a gift. Only she’s not very gifted. Both books in the awarding-winning Breathing Sea mini-series in one omnibus edition! Dasha was born at the behest of the gods, her mother’s pledge between the world of women and the world of spirits. The Krasnograd kremlin looks to her to rule with fire, steel, and magic, just as her Imperial foremothers did. Instead, she’s shy, retiring, and the least magically talented girl her tutors have ever seen. Now that she’s almost a woman grown, she needs to learn to harness her gifts, but all she can do is have fits and useless visions. When her father offers to take her on her first journey away from Krasnograd, Dasha jumps at the chance to see her native land. But their journey quickly turns into more than a mere pleasure trip. The wide world is more dangerous than Dasha had imagined, and her rapidly growing gifts may be the most dangerous thing in it. But Dasha is not the only danger in Zem’. War is raging on its borders, and threatens to spill into Zem’ itself. No matter which side Dasha’s people choose, they may not be able to keep their freedom and their way of life. Dasha may hold the key to protecting Zem’—but she may have to lose herself in order to save her people. If you loved First Lessons or The Bear and the Nightingale, try this epic fantasy saga set in a magical Russian world where trees walk, animals talk, and women rule. With discussion questions at the end.

Help the students with concerning behaviors without detentions, suspensions, expulsions, paddling, restraint, and seclusion In the newly revised Second Edition of Lost and Found, distinguished child psychologist Dr. Ross W. Greene delivers an insightful and effective framework for educators struggling with students with concerning behaviors. The author’s Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) approach focuses on the problems that are causing concerning behaviors and helps school staff partner with students to solve those problems rather than simply modifying the behavior. In this book, you’ll discover: A more compassionate, practical, effective approach to students’ concerning behaviors, one that positions educators as allies, not enemies, and as partners, not adversaries Updated examples and dialogue suited to modern classrooms and recent innovations from the constantly evolving CPS model Specific advice on how schools can eliminate the use of punitive, exclusionary disciplinary procedures and address disproportionality Perfect for K-12 educators in general and special education, Lost and Found has also become standard reading for teachers-in-training, professors, and parents who struggle to help students for whom “everything” has already been tried.

2020 Quick Pick for Reluctant Young Adult Readers—YALSA/ALA &“An empathetic tale that treats homelessness with respect and makes it visible.&”—Kirkus Reviews Seventeen-year-old Abby Lunde and her family are living on the streets. They had a normal life back in Omaha but, thanks to her mother's awful mistake, they had to leave behind what little they had for a new start in Rochester. Abby tries to be an average teenager—fitting in at school, dreaming of a boyfriend, college and a career in music. But Minnesota winters are unforgiving, and so are many teenagers. Her stepdad promises to put a roof over their heads, but times are tough for everyone and Abby is doing everything she can to keep her shameful secret from her new friends. The divide between rich and poor in high school is painfully obvious, and the stress of never knowing where they're sleeping or where they'll find their next meal is taking its toll on the whole family. As secrets are exposed and the hope for a home fades, Abby knows she must trust those around her to help. But will her new friends let her down like the ones back home, or will they rise to the challenge to help them find a normal life? "We, her readers, are drawn in from the first page. This lovely book has tremendous heart.&”—Brandon Hobson, author of Where the Dead Sit Talking

Nine-year-old Neil McDonald has always wanted to write a book. Every time he tries, though, it comes out `like the Hardy Boys or something'. But when a maverick substitute teacher challenges him to record all the events and thoughts of a single day, the doors of creativity swing open. It helps that the day in question is, in Neil's words, `pretty weird'. The time is the fall of 1971; the setting is lsquo;North America's northernmost Metropolis'. The cast includes Neil, his best friend Keith and his gnome-like baba, a budding Black Power advocate, the heavy-smoking son of anti-war activists, and a very small boy wielding a very large axe in a public park. Neil thinks his day will climax with the broadcast of the first night game in World Series history, but what he's in for is something much deeper, a surprise that will teach him much about the world and his place in it. In the end, Neil has his book. And it's nothing at all like the Hardy Boys.

THE STORY: A group of Boys and Girls assemble, guided by the Boy and Girl Narrators, to choose the parts they will portray in the play about to be presented. They can be anything they want to be-a procedure which is objected to by the Interrupter, who breaks in on them. When he is overruled, however, he elects to be a gangster, and takes everyone's money. Soon the others, perhaps affected by his actions, begin to bicker and disagree, until the Producer's Son appears and implores them to stop. But they are soon in open challenge, and it is decided that the Producer's Son, who stands in the way of their selfish interests, must be removed. He is roughly dragged off, but not before warning all the Boys and Girls that they must not allow the pressure of a few to destroy what is best for the many. After his departure, however, it is the worst, not the best, which emerges, and the Narrators are hard pressed to explain that only by allowing free choice could the Professor know who deserved credit for doing well. Then, quietly, the Producer's Son returns, to reassure them that as long as even one good actor remains on stage the play can be saved-no matter how hopeless it may seem. For the play is as long as the world, all of us are the actors and actresses, it is our play.

The Kilroys: "We Make Trouble. And Plays." "When I look at the list of women and nonbinary writers included in this volume, many of whom I have mentored or taught, it is a beautiful reminder that we are a community to be reckoned with, and that there is an abundance of vital narratives awaiting a larger audience. While there remains a great deal of work to be done to reach racial and gender equity in the theater, the powerful and provocative writing presented here is part of the inciting incident that will no doubt shake up the status quo." —Lynn Nottage, from her Foreword The Kilroys are back with a new collection of 67 monologues and scenes by women and nonbinary playwrights. This collection includes a monologue or scene from each play from the 2016 and 2017 editions of The List.
