They have one summer to find what was lost long ago. "Never settle for less than the truth," she told him. But when you don't even know your real name, the truth gets a little complicated. It can nestle so close to home it's hard to see. It can even flourish inside a lie. And as Chase Walker discovered, learning the truth about who you are can be as elusive—and as magical—as chasing fireflies on a summer night. A haunting story about fishing, baseball, home cooking, and other matters of life and death.
Do you struggle to maintain good health? Are you tired of the onslaught of new technology invading your life? Do you long for the simplicity of the good old days? Are you troubled by social unrest in the world? And, perhaps most importantly, has the explosion of political and corporate lying made you distrustful and angry? You are not alone; many people feel the same way. The good news is, some of the problems are not that difficult. In fact, it’s quite likely that you and a friend have sat at the kitchen table and solved most of them. The bad news is, many of your solutions are only opinions, and they count for precious little. This book offers scientific facts to replace rumors, lies, and opinions. Each short chapter shines a clear, mind-stretching light on today’s mess of important topics that keep the reader turning the page. Here are a few of the ninety-two chapter headings: • The rise of women and decline of men • Are you old yet? • Big data • Music as medicine • Home-made anxiety relief • Wonderful sleep • Approach to death • Optimal health and PH level • How to make yourself happier • Empty memories • Conspiracy theorists • Lies and face management • The beauty of being alone • Your body: home to trillions of microbes
Twelve-year-old Esme’s life changes when she discovers dinosaur bones on her family’s peach farm in Texas. Fans of Wendy Maas and Lynda Mullaly Hunt will love this perfectly pitched story about friendship, family, and loss from Suzanne Crowley, the acclaimed author of The Very Ordered Existence of Merilee Marvelous. After her grandfather died from a heart attack while driving his tractor on Solace Hill, twelve-year-old Esme's been inextricably drawn to that spot, although her grandmother warns her to stay away. But when she follows her little brother, Bo, and her dog, Old Jack, up the hill while chasing fireflies, she makes an incredible discovery—dinosaur bones peeking out from underneath the abandoned tractor. The bones must be a message from her grandfather, a connection from beyond the grave. But when word gets out that the farm is hiding something valuable, reporters, researchers, and neighbors arrive in droves. Esme struggles to understand who has her best interests at heart, especially as the memory of her grandfather begins to slip away. Full of friendship and adventure, and featuring a palpable Texas setting, Finding Esme is a moving and heartfelt story about family, friendship, and learning to deal with loss. From acclaimed author Suzanne Crowley, this engaging adventure set on a Texas peach farm is just right for fans of Rebecca Stead and Ann M. Martin.
