An exuberant and relatable picture book about sibling rivalry, ballet, and finding your free-form self. Confidence goes a long way, and so does practice--but the support of a loving family and community matters even more in this winsome tale of dancing your way into your own unique talents. Tessie has taken ballet for a whole month and thinks she has it down. If it weren't for her big sister, Maya, who seems to own the spotlight, Tessie would dazzle the whole class. But when Maya lands the lead--and the coveted princess crown--in the fall recital, not even freestyle dancing can fully rescue Tessie's spirits. But maybe they each have something to teach and the spotlight is big enough for two? Jaime Kim's author-illustrator debut captures the shifting emotions of competition, sisterhood, and joy in movement with warmth, charm, and a delicious candy-bright palette.

Normal single people watch gameshows about couples. Melissa applies to be on one. Melissa I take dares very seriously thank-you-very-much. And when my bestie dares me to apply for The Love Trials, I can’t say no. It’s a show where couples fight it out in a series of challenges to be crowned King and Queen and awarded £100,000. But there’s no way I’d be chosen. I’m missing one teeny-tiny detail: a heart-throb boyfriend. Unless the producers have a crazy idea to throw a pair of strangers together and plant a fake couple in the mix, I’m absolutely not going to be on the show. So, that would never happen, right? Wrong. Love Me in the Spotlight is a romantic comedy set in a Scottish castle, following two perfect strangers as they compete in a game show to convince the other couples - and the British public - that they’re the real deal. Author note: This is a steamy clean read. All of the sizzle but no sex or offensive language.

Countries that have sustained rapid growth over decades have typically had a strong public commitment to expanding education as well as to improving learning outcomes. South Asian countries have made considerable progress in expanding access to primary and secondary schooling, with countries having achieved near-universal enrollment of the primary-school-age cohort (ages 6†“11), except for Afghanistan and Pakistan. Secondary enrollment shows an upward trend as well. Beyond school, many more people have access to skilling opportunities and higher education today. Although governments have consistently pursued policies to expand access, a prominent feature of the region has been the role played by nonstate actors—private nonprofit and forprofit entities—in expanding access at every level of education. Though learning levels remain low, countries in the region have shown a strong commitment to improving learning. All countries in South Asia have taken the first step, which is to assess learning outcomes regularly. Since 2010, there has been a rapid increase in the number of large-scale student learning assessments conducted in the region. But to use the findings of these assessments to improve schooling, countries must build their capacity to design assessments and analyze and use findings to inform policy.

In a tarn in a country park in the heart of the Lancashire countryside floats the murdered body of a young man. His death creates plenty of problems for Detective Chief Inspector Alf Stone because, according to the police pathologist, this is not the first time he has appeared on the autopsy slab. The investigation uncovers the age-old ‘were’ tradition of the county where witches were able to transform into hares to escape the law. Urged on by three ancient deities, young witch Mary Conway learns the art of the ‘were’ as part of a plan to bring to an end the resurgence of the illegal ‘sport’ of hare coursing once and for all. But her intervention uncovers a far more sinister threat: camped not far from the park are a group of renegade Romani led by a wolf-witch. They have been forced to flee from the Carpathian Mountains of Transylvania and now plan to set up a colony on Wolf Fell in the hills above the village of Chipping.
