"Mothers, Daughters, Braces" – the orthodontic epic of our times. Alexis is one of the millions of kids who needs braces – but Alexis is dead set against getting them. Most of the time, her mother Rachel likes how her daughter takes after her, but this is one time when she doesn’t. Rachel refused to get braces when she was Alexis’s age, so how can she convince her daughter to do what is necessary now? Having braces seems so simple, but it can be so difficult. In facing orthodontic adversity together, Alexis and her mother chart their own special course – but it’s a story that everyone who has had braces, or has a loved one going through orthodontic treatment can relate to. From the discomfort and embarrassment of having them to the gratifying relief of the perfect, straight teeth at the end of the long road – and all the mixed feelings in between! – "Mothers, Daughters, Braces" candidly conveys the full range of experiences and emotions every orthodontic patient faces.

“Brooke in Braces” isn’t a story about a girl who happens to have braces – it’s a story about having braces. It’s a timeless tale for everyone who might be getting them, and for everyone who already has and who can relate! Readers experience it all through Brooke’s eyes – the anxiety, the aches, the pains, the joy, the embarrassments, the pride, the annoyances, the delights – as she recounts what it feels like, and what she’s feeling, every step along the bracing way. Catherine Aimes has been writing popular orthodontic fiction for years, but “Brooke in Braces: A Very Personal History of One Girl's Life and Times and Experiences with Braces” is her first novel written specially for kids and teens who are facing or have braces.

Daydream Nation is the kind of gorgeous monstrosity (born of extremes, rife with difficulties, and mythic in proportion) that can crush the will of the most resilient, well-intentioned listener if the necessary preparations haven't been made. Matthew Stearns explores the album from a range of angles, including a track-by-track analysis and a look at the historical and cultural context within which the album was made. Featuring a foreword by Lee Ranaldo and exclusive interviews with the band, this truly is the definitive guide to Daydream Nation.

Gleichheit oder Oligarchie, Individualismus oder Unfreiheit, Wahrheit oder Fake News – die Welt, wie wir sie kannten, steht am Scheideweg. Viel hat der Westen selbst dazu beigetragen. Aber er hat auch mächtige Feinde, die seine Institutionen mit allen Mitteln – von der Finanzierung des Rechtspopulismus in Europa bis zum Cyberwar – untergraben wollen. Wer diese Gegner sind, wie sie vorgehen und wie bedrohlich die Lage ist, das beschreibt das aufsehenerregende neue Buch von Tim Snyder. Mit dem Ende des Kalten Krieges hatten die liberalen Demokratien des Westens gesiegt. Von nun an würde die Menschheit eine friedvolle, globalisierte Zukunft erwarten. Doch das war ein Irrtum. Seit Putin seine Macht in Russland etabliert hat, rollt eine Welle des Autoritarismus von Osten nach Westen, die Europ... a erfasst hat und mit Donald Trump auch im Weißen Haus angekommen ist. Tim Snyder, Autor des Weltbestsellers «Über Tyrannei», beschreibt in seinem Buch den Aufstieg dieser neuen «rechten Internationalen», schildert ihre bedrohlichen Ziele und zeigt, wie sehr die Grundlagen unserer Demokratie in Gefahr sind.

When fifteen-year-old Beth Week’s family is attacked by a grizzly, her father becomes increasingly violent, making him a danger to his neighbors, his family, and especially Beth. Meanwhile, several young children from the nearby Indian reservation have gone missing, and Beth fears that something is pursuing her in the bush. But friendship with an Indian girl connects her to a mythology that enriches her landscape; and an unexpected protector shores up her world. Set on an isolated Canadian farm in the midst of World War II, The Cure for Death by Lightning evokes a life at once harshly demanding and rich in sensory pleasures: the deafening chatter of starlings, the sight of thousands of painted turtles crossing a road, the smell of baking that fills the Weeks’s kitchen. The novel is sprinkled throughout with recipes and remedies from the scrapbook Beth’s mother keeps, a boon to Beth as she learns to face down her demons--and one of many elements that give The Cure for Death by Lightning its enchanting vitality.
