Set in present day West Virginia, Ann Pancakes debut novel, Strange As This Weather Has Been, tells the story of a coal mining family—a couple and their four children—living through the latest mining boom and dealing with the mountaintop removal and strip mining that is ruining what is left of their mountain life. As the mine turns the mountains to slag and wastewater, workers struggle with layoffs and children find adventure in the blasted moonscape craters. Strange As This Weather Has Been follows several members of the family, with a particular focus on fifteen-year-old Bant and her mother, Lace. Working at a “scab motel, Bant becomes involved with a young miner while her mother contemplates joining the fight against the mining companies.

But Bant has other memories and is as curious and strong-willed as her mother, and ultimately comes to discover the very real threat of destruction that looms as much in the landscape as it does at home.

Dance with Your Heart

Up To This Pointe Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Dance with Your Heart by Bronwyn Mulrooney Book Summary:

Ballet, dance, adventure, mystery, magic, fantasy and a touch of first-love romance combine in this spellbinding series for preteens, tweens and teens. If you think this is your regular ballet or urban fantasy book, think again! 13-year-old Gemma James is just your average girl with anything-but-average dreams of being a professional ballet dancer. She attends the prestigious SA Ballet Academy - an eerie old ballet school bursting with secrets...and where nothing is quite what it seems. Now the Grade 7s at the academy are putting on a performance of the enchanting ballet Giselle, and Gemma is determined to get a lead role. But the discovery of a 100-year-old mystery in the depths of the old academy building one moonlit night, stiff competition from the other teen dancers, and the constant harassment of Super Snob and star performer, Aimee Atherton, all threaten to derail Gemma's chances. Plus cute new boy Ethan Blake has just transferred to the academy from a top London ballet school, and he's complicating things even further. Will Gemma get her chance to dance? Readers will fall in love with sassy Gemma and her alluring sense of adventure, as well as best friends Marley Moon and Dineo as they get to grips with life in this unusual ballet school with its enchanting setting and larger-than-life characters. Dance with your Heart is the first book in the delightful SA Ballet Academy series of fantasy dance and ballet books for girls. "As a hardened ballet teacher of many years of back-breaking work in my beloved profession, I fell in love with the characters in DANCE WITH YOUR HEART. An extremely enjoyable read, it is also fun and catches with great wit, the foibles of both fellow pupils and teachers. This is a great book for parents and all ages of dancers to read - for those of us for whom the magic of dance will always continue." Amy Gould, Editor: Imaginemag "I read the first book, DANCE WITH YOUR HEART. My daughter Megan and myself couldn't wait to read the book, we both enjoyed it so much. It kept us captivated. Thank you Bronwyn for a wonderful book. Looking forward to the next one!" Sanet, reader "I absolutely adored DANCE WITH YOUR HEART. I really enjoyed the story and all the characters! I even felt different in my first dance class after reading it! I can't wait for the next one!" Taylor, 13, reader "When I read DANCE WITH YOUR HEART I felt as though I'd been granted access to a world filled with magic and dance, where anything was possible. I LOVED this novel. Gemma had me wishing I was a ballerina and attending a ballet academy from page one; she showed me the excitement and struggles dancers face from beautiful costumes, long lasting friendships and even bleeding toes! With characters that dived out of the novel and pirouetted across my room, it was easy to imagine them as my best friends, rather than characters in a book. They were easy to love and oh-so real. All I wanted to do was step out of my room and visit Gemma on stage or, have a conversation with Ethan or burn Aimee to the ground because I hated her. I loved the journey the group took together and can't wait to see what else they discover at SABA!" Storm, 15, reader "My 14-year-old daughter loved this book and says it has a real story - it is not just a little girl's book about tutus and tiaras. There's a ghost called Emily and a cute boy too..." Sasha Wyatt-Minter, editor: All4Women

Blink & Caution by Tim Wynne-Jones Book Summary:

Two street kids get tangled in a plot over their heads - and risk an unexpected connection - in this heart-pounding thriller by Tim Wynne-Jones. (Age 14 and up) Boy, did Blink get off on the wrong floor. All he wanted was to steal some breakfast for his empty belly, but instead he stumbled upon a fake kidnapping and a cell phone dropped by an "abducted" CEO, giving Blink a link to his perfect blonde daughter. Now Blink is on the run, but it’s OK as long as he’s smart enough to stay in the game and keep Captain Panic locked in his hold. Enter a girl named Caution. As in "Caution: Toxic." As in "Caution: Watch Your Step." She’s also on the run, from a skeezy drug-dealer boyfriend and from a nightmare in her past that won’t let her go. When she spies Blink at the train station, Caution can see he’s an easy mark. But there’s something about this naïve, skinny street punk, whom she only wanted to rob, that tugs at her heart, a heart she thought deserved not to feel. Charged with suspense and intrigue, this taut novel trails two deeply compelling characters as they forge a blackmail scheme that is foolhardy at best, disastrous at worst - along with a fated, tender partnership that will offer them each a rare chance for redemption.
