This is a volume of inspirational poems. Its purpose is to bring men courage and resolution, to cheer them, to fire them with new confidence when they grow dispirited, to strengthen their faith that THINGS CAN BE DONE. It is better for this purpose than the entire works of any one poet, for it takes the cream of many and has greater diversity than any one writer can show.

An absorbing, breakneck debut YA novel set on the high seas. On a field trip to see famed privateer Francisco Ventana’s once-sunken ship, the Defiant, six kids from San Francisco’s Greenly School—a last-chance refuge for orphans, troublemakers, and misfits—find themselves stranded at the center of a storm unlike any other. By the time the clouds have cleared, and the strange pink flashes have faded from the sky, the Defiant is out on the open sea, San Francisco ablaze behind it. What follows is an adventure that will change the classmates' lives forever—a journey across a dangerous ocean in search of a new home, with only their instincts and each other to rely on. Can they master the ship? Can they work together, and defend themselves against the unexpected adversaries they encounter on the way? Will they ever find land? You’ll have to join their voyage to find out. A remarkable debut in the tradition of Gulliver’s Travels and Lord of the Flies, The Defiant creates a world that’s all its own—thrilling and wholly original, filled with strange energies and superstitious survivors, and dozens of moments you won’t soon forget.

Everything Charlie of Windsong wants has just been offered to her. A chance to trade a life of monotony for one of adventure. A chance to be part of the world outside her home and to make her own decisions. A chance to find out if she could be as brave as she hoped. Charlie never imagined that she would run away from home, but when a mysterious summons from a woman who calls herself Grandmother offers her an opportunity to leave her stifling life behind and go on an unusual adventure, she is too curious to say no. Charlie learns that not only has she been chosen to revive a league of exceptional women called the Order of the Dagger, but that her success in doing so might be instrumental in stopping a war. All of this newfound adventure and freedom comes at a price. Charlie has to leave her family and the comforts of home behind and learn to take care of herself, she encounters danger regularly from both mundane and magical sources, and she finds herself saddled with an unwanted companion who is a little too curious about who she is and where she's from. And through it all, she's on a seemingly impossible quest to find a dagger that could be hidden anywhere. Charlie's decision to leave her old life behind and travel through a country adversarial to her own takes her on a journey that not only exposes her to new experiences and challenges, but also tests the limits of her courage, ingenuity, and determination. The people she meets, the trials she overcomes, and the magic she encounters on her trip cause her to reconsider her own view of herself and her place in a world much bigger and more complicated than she had ever imagined.

No one likes to suffer. It hurts. We all suffer, though, in one form or another, at some time or another. What is God’s heart towards his children as they suffer? Does God care like a loving earthly father would for his suffering children? If God loves his children, why would he allow them to go through pain in the first place? These questions are all too common—the very questions Catherine Rackley pleaded before God when she was pummeled repeatedly by multiple hardships, all starting with a cancer diagnosis at the age of twenty-five. “Is God really good?” “Does he love me?” “Is he hearing my prayers?” The hardships did not erase, but some answers did come. You are invited to walk through this vulnerable journey with Catherine where she wrestles with blood, sweat, and tears. . . . Her hope is that you will find those secret places where God led her.

The end came with a whimper, not a bang. The virus engulfed the world in a matter of days. The infected die…and then rise again. Governments collapsed, armies disappeared, and entire civilizations turned to dust as the human race tore itself to pieces. Jeff Blaine had a good life: a beautiful wife, adorable children, and a nice house in the suburbs. He liked his job, loved his family, and spent his lazy suburban Sundays out on the deck, barbecuing with the neighbors. Things were perfect, until everything fell apart. And no matter how hard Jeff tried, he could not spare his family from the horrors scratching at the door. Now, with his family gone and his life in ruins, the only thing left is raw anger and pain. As the world continues to sink into darkness, Jeff does as well. So he ventures out into the desolation with no better plan than to destroy as many of the monsters that stole his life away before they destroy him as well. But soon Jeff will discover other survivors unwilling to give up. They will force him to decide whether or not to give in to the venom that gnaws at his soul. Should he continue to fight to survive, or succumb to the things that come with the dark?

In 1862 Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, a shy Oxford mathematician with a stammer, created a story about a little girl tumbling down a rabbit hole. Thus began the immortal adventures of Alice, perhaps the most popular heroine in English literature. Countless scholars have tried to define the charm of the Alice books--with those wonderfully eccentric characters the Queen of Hearts, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Cheshire Cat, Mock Turtle, the Mad Hatter et al.--by proclaiming that they really comprise a satire on language, a political allegory, a parody of Victorian children's literature, even a reflection of contemporary ecclesiastical history. Perhaps, as Dodgson might have said, Alice is no more than a dream, a fairy tale about a trials and tribulations of growing up--or down, or all tumed round--as seen through the expert eyes of a child. From the Paperback edition.
