Kids love stuff that's gross. From the liquids, solids, and gases--especially the gases!--or their own bodies to the creepy, crawly, slimy, slithery, fetid, and feculent phenomena in the world at large, kids with a curious bent just can't get enough. Oh, Yuck! The Encyclopedia of Everything Nasty brings together, in one book, all the good things about some of the baddest things on Earth. Exhaustively researched and impeccably scientific, yet written with a lively lack of earnestness, Oh, Yuck! is an ants to zits encyclopedic compendium covering people, animals, insects, plants, foods, and more. Here are vampire bats, which sip blood and pee at the same time so that they'll always be light enough to fly away; and slime eels, wreathed in mucus and eating fellow fish from the inside out. Oh, Yuck! explains why vomit smells; where dandruff comes from; what pus is all about; and why maggots adore rotting meant. Other features include gross recipes, putrid projects, 10 foods that make you airborne, and more. With hundreds of cartoon illustrations and real-life photographs, Oh, Yuck! is the complete guide to the irresistible--at least to an 8-to-12 year old--underbelly of life.

In an isolated village, a series of odd events grabs the attention of the British Government; lights in the sky, a wrecked police car, strange smells and localised intense cold. The Home Office sends in its scientific advisor, Professor Oakwood Ash and his team to investigate. On their arrival there is no warm welcome from the villagers who have a secret that they intend to hold on to. Dominating the village is the ancient and mysterious Priory. Plundered by Henry VIII, it lies in ruins. Yet how can it be that, on occasions, some have seen it just as it was before the Reformation? And rumours of buried treasure? With peculiar happenings, eccentric characters and a thrilling investigation with twists at every turn, Peter Haines is at the peak of his powers in this first rate page-turner.

Manny, the little brown bear longs for a friend. But not just any friend. He longs for a Forever Friend. He wishes for a friend he can play with and laugh with, and dance and sing with. He wishes for a friend he can share all his happy thoughts and all his sad thoughts with. Find out what happens when Manny rescues a little white rabbit from a hunter's trap. Then follow them on their adventures as they happily explore their forest neighborhood. "He looked at his new friend with wonder and said, “And I don’t even know exactly WHY I was laughing!” “Oh,” she said, “I was just so happy to be free and so relieved you didn’t want to eat me that I just started laughing.” “Eat you?! Oh, no! Oh, yuck! Oh, gross! No way!” said Manny Bear, in a very shocked voice. “Yuck? What do you mean....YUCK!” the little white rabbit asked in a huffy tone. “Don’t you think I would taste good? What’s wrong with me? I am not gross or yuck!” Then realizing it might sound as if she were inviting him to have a taste she changed her mind. In a tiny voice, she said, “Never mind. I’m sure I must taste just awful anyway.” The little white rabbit sat up and offered her tiny paw to Manny Bear. He took it very gently in his much bigger paw. She said, “My name is Missy Rabbit and I am very pleased to meet you. Thank you for saving me.” Then they looked at each other and began to laugh all over again. By the time they finished laughing they were the best of friends. They were Forever Friends."

Louisa of Woods Crossing is about the Texas frontier just prior to the 1836 War of Texas Independence. The fourteen year-old heroine of the story lived during times of hardships and dangers including nightmarish depredations by hostile Indians inclined to barbarous acts. Nothing was more feared than raids on cabins and the terrifying abductions of teen-aged girls. The family homestead on the Lavaca River was that of the typical log cabin with fi elds, pastures, and the customary animals except for two red wolf watchdogs adopted as orphaned pups. The story is also an endearing one of close friendships with other pioneer girls.

"Revolving Doors" is an adult, autobiographical novel in which 'Richard', now over sixty, recalls incidents of his nightmarish first five years of childhood, while fostered through 17 residences as a ward of Toronto's "S.W.York Co. Children's Aid Society." From his perspective and understanding as a small child, he shares details of memories of unspeakably perverse mistreatment, including perpetual abuse, torture and even rape. After years of counselling and treatment for ensuing, debilitating mental illnesses, 'Richard' experienced a "black-out," resulting in the sudden awareness of long-buried, traumatic memories. The Author, Ms. Ketteringham, graphically details her brother's incredible victimization/survival story by interweaving his recollections, and relentless nightmares, with documentation from the organizations involved. It is "Richard's" most sincere desire that his story of ultimate survival might encourage similar abuse victims who may be searching for hope in facing and fighting their own demons.

"The most winning junior detective ever in teen lit. (Take that, Nancy Drew!)" —Midwest Children's Book Review Sammy's softball team is in contention for the Junior Slugger's Cup, and all she wants to do is hunker down behind the home plate and catch strikes. But Heather Acosta brings new meaning to the term "foul ball" as she schemes to get Sammy kicked off the team. Then Sammy is thrown a wild pitch by a frantic girl at the mall. The girl asks Sammy to watch her bag and dashes off before Sammy discovers that the bag she's left holding contains a baby! When the girl doesn't return, Sammy decides to go find her. A heart-pounding search ensues, and leads to some situations that are definitely not covered in the softball playbook. The Sammy Keyes mysteries are fast-paced, funny, thoroughly modern, and true whodunits. Each mystery is exciting and dramatic, but it's the drama in Sammy's personal life that keeps readers coming back to see what happens next with her love interest Casey, her soap-star mother, and her mysterious father.

From the international bestselling author of These Are the Names: “A brilliant exploration of the uneasy transition from adolescence into adulthood” (The Independent). After a decade away, gifted young pianist Ludwig Unger returns to his hometown of Kings Ness, England, where the houses are on the verge of falling into the sea. With little else but a plastic bag filled with his mother’s ashes, Ludwig hopes to make amends with his lonely past and say goodbye to the familial ghosts that still haunt him. Ludwig’s mother tried to create a normal life for him after his father abandoned them, but Ludwig grew up in her shadow, developing an obsession with her and her sensual allure. When he discovers her secret past as “the Grace Kelly of porn,” Ludwig’s world spins out of control. He soon finds himself homeless, shouldering the shame of his mother’s career, and embarking on a journey around the world in search of answers about his dysfunctional artistic family and the legacy they left behind. “Beautifully lyrical storytelling under a banner of gray skies and heavy hearts.” —Dan Kennedy, host of The Moth storytelling podcast and author of Rock On “Although perfectly charming as picaresque, the tragedy of Unger’s plight registers just as strongly as its understated oddness . . . Wieringa plays for keeps.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review “[A] beautifully realized novel about a young man seeking to understand his difficult, eccentric parents.” —Library Journal

In a traditional family, the last thing you can be is who you really are, but it's time for Jacqueline Sanchez to find the woman underneath it all. . . Everyone has their role. My mother is the martyr, my father the distant unapproachable figure, and Noel, with a few brief stints in jail, is considered misunderstood, not a handsome loser. Yolie is just outspoken, not a miserable bitter shrew, which would be her clinical diagnosis in the "real" world. And the rest of my brothers and sisters have problems that my parents consider normal, like bad marriages, unruly children, and too many bills. So is it a surprise that I'm considered the troublemaker of the family? Not happy at home? Move away for college. Hate your job? Find another one. Fallen out of lust, er, love with your husband? Divorce him. I, so far, am the anomaly--or flake--in the family because I'm vocal about how unnecessary it is to be unhappy, and how important it is to do something about it to change your circumstances (thank you, Zoloft!) If I had it my way, my whole family would be comparing dosages at the dinner table the way some families talk about sports or politics. . .
