The day the First World War broke out, Alfie Summerfield's father promised he wouldn't go away to fight—but he broke that promise the following day. Four years later, Alfie doesn't know where his father might be, other than that he's away on a special, secret mission. Then, while shining shoes at King's Cross Station, Alfie unexpectedly sees his father's name on a sheaf of papers belonging to a military doctor. Bewildered and confused, Alfie realizes his father is in a hospital close by—a hospital treating soldiers with shell shock. Alfie isn't sure what shell shock is, but he is determined to rescue his father from this strange, unnerving place. . . . in John Boyne's Stay Where You Are and Then Leave.

Dasha is a gift. Only she’s not very gifted. Both books in the awarding-winning Breathing Sea mini-series in one omnibus edition! Dasha was born at the behest of the gods, her mother’s pledge between the world of women and the world of spirits. The Krasnograd kremlin looks to her to rule with fire, steel, and magic, just as her Imperial foremothers did. Instead, she’s shy, retiring, and the least magically talented girl her tutors have ever seen. Now that she’s almost a woman grown, she needs to learn to harness her gifts, but all she can do is have fits and useless visions. When her father offers to take her on her first journey away from Krasnograd, Dasha jumps at the chance to see her native land. But their journey quickly turns into more than a mere pleasure trip. The wide world is more dangerous than Dasha had imagined, and her rapidly growing gifts may be the most dangerous thing in it. But Dasha is not the only danger in Zem’. War is raging on its borders, and threatens to spill into Zem’ itself. No matter which side Dasha’s people choose, they may not be able to keep their freedom and their way of life. Dasha may hold the key to protecting Zem’—but she may have to lose herself in order to save her people. If you loved First Lessons or The Bear and the Nightingale, try this epic fantasy saga set in a magical Russian world where trees walk, animals talk, and women rule. With discussion questions at the end.

Want many things and have a great desire to get and achieve them, but when you try to take the first step to achieve any of them you feel as if there are hidden forces prevent you from taking even one small step in the way of achieving. One thing you should know very well that is there are three forces that control you, three forces within you that make you behave and speak in a certain way that makes you love and addictive things, hate and reject other things and they also make you say and do things without think or even feel. These forces are very similar to monsters that have the same age as you, when you ware kid these monsters ware also young and weak and it was possible to control them with ease, so when you were kid you were satisfied and happy and absolute freedom, because all of these forces were working with each other in one direction just for giving you the control and the fun you need. When you grow up, these forces become like monsters and become the cruelest possible, and impose their control over you, then you must deal with them in another way. These forces are the force of your mind, the force of your heart and the force of what I call the adaptation center, which you will know in detail in the first chapters of the book. This book is divided into three main sections, each section serves as a separate and complementary section at the same time for the rest of the sections. The first section will identify the three forces that control you and will teach you how to deal with them so you can impose your full control over them and thus your entire life. The second section is separate chapters those will teach you how to deal with the experiences of your life and your inner feelings like fear, anxiety and shame and how to use those feelings to make you get what you want. The third section is seven strategies and tricks that you can use to control these forces and make them support you instead of working against you, so you can live as a free human again, who has the ability to say and do what he wants in the time and place that he wants, a person who can get what wants.
