The thrilling sequel to the acclaimed Beautiful Blue World follows a brave girl who must flee her country during wartime and work undercover to defeat the enemy. For fans of The War That Saved My Life and Wolf Hollow. “A thoughtful, pellucid story . . . [that] gently probes questions of loyalty, patriotism and sacrifice.” —The Wall Street Journal on Beautiful Blue World A war took Mathilde away from her family when she was chosen to serve her country, Sofarende, with other children working on a secret military project. But now the other children—including her best friend, Megs—have fled to safety, and Mathilde is all alone, determined to complete her mission. In this powerful and deeply moving sequel to the acclaimed Beautiful Blue World, Mathilde must make her way through a new stage of the war. Haunted by the bold choice she made on the night she chose her country’s future over her own well-being, she clings to the promise Megs made long ago: “Whatever happens, I’ll be with you.” Praise for Beautiful Blue World: “Readers will be drawn in by the underlying belief that kids’ work is important and powerful, and eager for the promised sequel.” —Publishers Weekly, Starred “Deeply emotional, compelling, and brilliant.” —Kirkus Reviews, Starred “LaFleur crafts a protagonist who is compassionate and resourceful, in a war-ravaged world in which children are, by turns, exploited and empowered. The tension is high and danger ever present.” —School Library Journal, Starred

"I had everything I needed to run a household: a house, food, and a new family. From now on it would just be me and Sammy–the two of us, and no one else." A tragic accident has turned eleven-year-old Aubrey’s world upside down. Starting a new life all alone, Aubrey has everything she thinks she needs: SpaghettiOs and Sammy, her new pet fish. She cannot talk about what happened to her. Writing letters is the only thing that feels right to Aubrey, even if no one ever reads them. With the aid of her loving grandmother and new friends, Aubrey learns that she is not alone, and gradually, she finds the words to express feelings that once seemed impossible to describe. The healing powers of friendship, love, and memory help Aubrey take her first steps toward the future. Readers will care for Aubrey from page one and will watch her grow until the very end, when she has to make one of the biggest decisions of her life. Love, Aubrey is devastating, brave, honest, funny, and hopeful, and it introduces a remarkable new writer, Suzanne LaFleur. No matter how old you are, this book is not to be missed. From the Hardcover edition.

"I'm obsessed with abandoned things." Siena's obsession began a year and a half ago, around the time her two-year-old brother Lucca stopped talking. Now Mom and Dad are moving the family from Brooklyn to Maine hoping that it will mean a whole new start for Lucca and Siena. She soon realizes that their wonderful old house on the beach holds secrets. When Siena writes in her diary with an old pen she found in her closet, the pen writes its own story, of Sarah and Joshua, a brother and sister who lived in the same house during World War II. As the two stories unfold, amazing parallels begin to appear, and Siena senses that Sarah and Joshua's story might contain the key to unlocking Lucca's voice.

Brimir and Hulda are best friends who live on a small island on a beautiful blue planet where there are only children and no adults. Their planet is wild and at times dangerous, but everything is free, everyone is their friend, and each day is more exciting than the last. One day a rocket ship piloted by a strange-looking adult named Gleesome Goodday crashes on the beach. His business card claims he is a “Dream.ComeTrueMaker and joybringer,” and he promises to make life a hundred times more fun with sun-activated flying powder and magic-coated skin so that no one ever has to bathe again. Goodday even nails the sun in the sky and creates a giant wolf to chase away the clouds so it can be playtime all the time. In exchange for these wonderful things, Goodday asks only for a little bit of the children’s youth—but what is youth compared to a lot more fun? The children are so enamored with their new games that they forget all the simple activities they used to love. During Goodday’s great flying competition, Hulda and Brimir fly too high to the sun and soar to the other side of planet, where they discover it is dark all the time and the children are sickly and pale. Hulda and Brimir know that without their help, the pale children will die, but first they need to get back to their island and convince their friends that Gleesome Goodday is not all that he seems. A fantastical adventure, beautifully told, unfolds in a deceptively simple tale. The Story of the Blue Planet will delight and challenge readers of all ages. From the Trade Paperback edition.

"FASCINATING . . . MEMORABLE . . . REVEALING . . . PERHAPS THE BEST OF CARL SAGAN'S BOOKS." --The Washington Post Book World (front page review) In Cosmos, the late astronomer Carl Sagan cast his gaze over the magnificent mystery of the Universe and made it accessible to millions of people around the world. Now in this stunning sequel, Carl Sagan completes his revolutionary journey through space and time. Future generations will look back on our epoch as the time when the human race finally broke into a radically new frontier--space. In Pale Blue Dot Sagan traces the spellbinding history of our launch into the cosmos and assesses the future that looms before us as we move out into our own solar system and on to distant galaxies beyond. The exploration and eventual settlement of other worlds is neither a fantasy nor luxury, insists Sagan, but rather a necessary condition for the survival of the human race. "TAKES READERS FAR BEYOND Cosmos . . . Sagan sees humanity's future in the stars." --Chicago Tribune

These mandalas have inspired inward contemplation and creation of more artwork. They are shared so others can use them for their own meditative objectives, and to find a cognitive tool to find their inner self. The mandalas helps the mind's eye find a centering point, uses the color psychologically to travel inward to one's psyche and core, for reflection, thinking, dreaming, and meditation. Physical becomes spiritual, thoughts are stripped down, layer-by-layer, and strings of self-knowledge radiate from the mandala into the soul of the observer. The images should evoke memories, signs, symbols, dreams, and other images as the meditator reflects on their mantra, focuses on the mandala, and then commits the image to their mind for contemplation. Historical geometric-based sand-paintings hand created by Tibetian monks meet a newer, digitally created organic shapes, figures, and radii within these images provide a 21st Century vision of mandala that creates the same cultural norms and thinking process within the practice of transcendental mediation. These images are stunning and brilliant enough that traditional – or new – meditators may wish to have these images to place within their personal meditation space to more easily get lost in the process with a closer and larger version. This book has 52 images to pick and choose from. The author also provides research resources where those interested in mandalas as a cognitive tool for transcendental mediation can find more information for each aspect – the history of the practice, color theory, and research studies noting art therapy using mandalas in providing treatment for psychological or emotional conditions. Readers may pick their favorite mandala or color theme to use long-term or use a new one for each week of the year. These stunning images are available in printed form (this book as well as other volumes), but also available for ordering in large canvas versions, as well as accessories (scarves, bandanas, posters, etc.).
