In an engrossing historical novel, the Newbery Medal-winning author of Bridge to Terebithia follows a young Cuban teenager as she volunteers for Fidel Castro’s national literacy campaign and travels into the impoverished countryside to teach others how to read. When thirteen-year-old Lora tells her parents that she wants to join Premier Castro’s army of young literacy teachers, her mother screeches to high heaven, and her father roars like a lion. Nora has barely been outside of Havana — why would she throw away her life in a remote shack with no electricity, sleeping on a hammock in somebody’s kitchen? But Nora is stubborn: didn’t her parents teach her to share what she has with someone in need? Surprisingly, Nora’s abuela takes her side, even as she makes Nora promise to come home if things get too hard. But how will Nora know for sure when that time has come? Shining light on a little-known moment in history, Katherine Paterson traces a young teen’s coming-of-age journey from a sheltered life to a singular mission: teaching fellow Cubans of all ages to read and write, while helping with the work of their daily lives and sharing the dangers posed by counterrevolutionaries hiding in the hills nearby. Inspired by true accounts, the novel includes an author’s note and a timeline of Cuban history.

2013 Laura Ingalls Wilder Award Rosa’s mother is singing again, for the first time since Papa died in an accident in the mills. But instead of filling their cramped tenement apartment with Italian lullabies, Mamma is out on the streets singing union songs, and Rosa is terrified that her mother and older sister, Anna, are endangering their lives by marching against the corrupt mill owners. After all, didn’t Miss Finch tell the class that the strikers are nothing but rabble-rousers—an uneducated, violent mob? Suppose Mamma and Anna are jailed or, worse, killed? What will happen to Rosa and little Ricci? When Rosa is sent to Vermont with other children to live with strangers until the strike is over, she fears she will never see her family again. Then, on the train, a boy begs her to pretend that he is her brother. Alone and far from home, she agrees to protect him . . . even though she suspects that he is hiding some terrible secret. From a beloved, award-winning author, here is a moving story based on real events surrounding an infamous 1912 strike.

Escrito con humor y sencillez, Diario de un brigadista de José Agustín es su testimonio de una época. Este libro contiene una revelación literaria implícita: este libro es previo a La tumba. "El resultado es este libro que documenta ese peculiar momento histórico de un país entonces muy joven y narrado por un observador tan joven como el país que lo acogió." Diario de brigadista es el testimonio de una historia casi de novela: José Agustín, escritor en ciernes, de escasos 16 años, se casa impulsivamente y a escondidas de sus padres para poder viajar en 1961 a la joven Cuba, dos años después de la revolución. La joven pareja, llena de ilusiones y en plena iniciación de la vida, arriba en barco a un mundo que iba a ser nuevo. Ligero de equipaje y sin un peso en el bolsillo, José Agustín desembarca para compartir sus conocimientos con los guajiros de la sierra y vivir en la isla una experiencia que cambiaría su vida. Así, de Cárdenas a Matanzas, de Santa Clara a Camagüey, de Santiago a Holguín, a bordo de las famosas guaguas, el joven viaja con un cuaderno donde va registrando las vivencias y convivencias cotidianas de su travesía alfabetizadora. Soportando el hambre y la fatiga, alimentándose de dulces de guayaba y leche salada tras largas jornadas de trabajo en el campo, José Agustín nos va dejando el retrato de un artista adolescente y de una época marcada todavía por el idealismo. Este libro, inédito hasta hoy, es el testimonio de esa aventura y está contado con la irreverencia y espontaneidad que marcarán su obra posterior, revelando aquí por vez primera la fuerza narrativa que desplegará en La tumba. Acompaña el texto una conversación con Enrique Serna, fotos de la época y un par más de curiosidades que ilustran el fervor idealista de un joven escritor.

Un hito en la historia de Nicaragua que marcó al mundo para siempre, y que la UNESCO registró en las Memorias del Mundo en Junio del 2007 *El destino cambió los carriles a toda una columna de brigadistas quienes terminaron en selvas y aldeas desconocidas, donde pestes asesinas diezmaban a sus habitantes; y aprendieron a convivir y enseñar en el seno de familias extrañas, en medio de peligros, acosos, romances e intrigas. *Ante su llegada, una brigadista descubre a la madre de la familia que le toca alfabetizar, postrada en su cama y vomitando sangre, como resultado de la tuberculosis. Impotente y aterrada llora, cuando la misma le dice que mejor se vaya de ahí antes que también salga contagiada. *Una escuadra de brigadistas se pierden en la densidad de las selvas, en medio de una persecución de grupos contrarrevolucionarios, a partir de ahí inicia una lucha sin cuartel por la sobrevivencia. * Y todo un drama que al final demuestra que, aunque eran jóvenes adolescentes dispuestos a servir a una causa justa, eran de carne y hueso.

"Bob Doyle was born in Dublin's inner city on 12 February 1916. After a childhood full of the expected privations of the poor he joined the ranks of the unemployed in the dark 1930s. It was during this period of unrest that he met republican and socialist Kit Conway, who was to have a profound influence on his life and politics and whom he joined in anti-Blueshirt demonstrations on the streets of Dublin. On the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War in 1936 anti-Fascists from all over the world were motivated to fight for the Republican government against Franco. In December 1937 Bob Doyle finally managed to enter Span and, with other volunteers from Britain and Ireland, reported to an International Brigade battalion at Figueras. Captured by the Fascists along with Frank Ryan, he spent many months with other Brigadistas in the monastery of San Pedro, which had been turned into a concentration camp, until eventually, in early 1939, they were released as part of a prisoner exchange." "Bob enlisted in the British merchant navy during the Second World War and it was in England that he met his Spanish wife, Lola, and in London that he lived and worked as a printer after the war. He did not forget Spain, nor the fight against Fascism, returning in secret to the country and taking part in the underground anti-France resistance. Brigadista is a memoir by a great survivor."--BOOK JACKET.

It was a top-secret project of the Nazis: the test of tank engines in an alpine cold pole area, where parts of the famous Austrian Kupelwieser and Wittgenstein dynasties had settled nearby. Their fascist threat: the anti-Semitic facial measurements, the forced sale of a country estate, the expropriation of the island of Brioni by Mussolini etc., is a great family story. Where individual memories meet history, the most exciting stories emerge. Geißlhofer has immersed deep in his own childhood, and unveiled family secrets with persistent research. What came out appears like a thriller about what should have been sublimely forgotten after 1945.

Lincoln's Spymaster tells the dangerous and action-packed adventures of Allan Pinkerton, America's first private eye and Lincoln's most trusted spymaster.

His reputation grew and people began approaching Pinkerton with their cases, leading him to open the first-of-its-kind private detective agency. Pinkerton assembled a team of undercover agents, and together they caught train robbers, counterfeiters, and other outlaws. Soon these outlaws, including Jesse James, became their nemeses. Danger didn't stop the agency! The team even uncovered and stopped an assassination plot against president-elect Abraham Lincoln! Seeing firsthand the value of Pinkerton's service, Lincoln funded Pinkerton's spy network, a precursor to the Secret Service. Allan Pinkerton is known as the father of modern day espionage, and this is the first book for young adults to tell his story!

At the height of the Spanish Civil War, George Orwell served from 1936-1937 as a private for the POUM, the Workers' Party of Marxist Unification, an anti-Stalinist communist party. Seriously wounded in action and betrayed by the Communist Party, Orwell and his wife, Eileen, narrowly escaped arrest and returned to England in early summer 1937. Homage to Catalonia is Orwell’s moving account of his experiences during this period, capturing both his commitment to socialist ideals and his criticism of the Communists in Spain.

Edgar-nominated author Lia Matera’s seventh Willa Jansson mystery is packed with “a riveting plot, realistic Havana settings, reawakened romance, and flavorful characters…a winner.” (Library Journal) Attorney Willa Jansson’s mother has never balked at breaking the law, especially not for a good cause. So when Willa learns her mother has flouted federal regulations and gone off to Cuba, she figures it's just a harmless pilgrimage to lefty Graceland. But when her mother doesn’t return with the rest of her peacenik tour group, Willa fears her mother’s bleeding heart may finally have gotten her into more trouble than she can get herself out of. But when Willa risks her career and passport by rushing to Cuba to retrace her mother’s steps, she finds that nothing there is quite as it seems. Following clues to neighborhoods tourists never see, through secret tunnels beneath the street, and into the finest luxury hotels, Willa is manipulated, misled, and nearly arrested. And in the meantime, newfound reporter friends—or are they CIA agents?—disappear as suddenly and inexplicably as her mother did. In a deadly game of cat and mouse, Willa follows her mother’s trail from Havana to Mexico City, from California back to Havana…all the while keeping barely one step ahead of two angry governments and at least one ruthless killer.

“Swiftly moving and utterly engrossing.” —Shelf Awareness Parents’ Choice Recommended From Newbery Award–winning author Avi comes the gripping and amazingly true tale of a boy plucked from the gutter to become the King of England. England, 1486. King Henry VII has recently snatched the English Crown and now sits on the throne, while young Prince Edward, who has a truer claim, has apparently disappeared. Meanwhile, a penniless kitchen boy named Lambert Simnel is slaving away at a tavern in Oxford—until a mysterious friar, Brother Simonds, buys Lambert from the tavern keeper and whisks him away in the dead of night. But this is nothing compared to the secret that the friar reveals: You, Lambert, are actually Prince Edward, the true King of England! With the aid of the deceitful Earl of Lincoln, Brother Simonds sets out to teach the boy how to become the rightful English king. Lambert has everything to gain and nothing to lose, or so he thinks. Yet in this dangerous battle for the throne, Lambert is not prepared for what’s to come—or for what it really means to play at being a king.
