“Much like <I>The Boy In the Striped Pajamas</I> or <I>The Book Thief</I>,” this remarkable memoir from Leon Leyson, one of the youngest children to survive the Holocaust on Oskar Schindler’s list, “brings to readers a story of bravery and the fight for a chance to live” (<I >VOYA</I>).<BR><BR>This, the only memoir published by a former Schindler’s list child, perfectly captures the innocence of a small boy who goes through the unthinkable. Leon Leyson (born Leib Lezjon) was only ten years old when the Nazis invaded Poland and his family was forced to relocate to the Krakow ghetto. With incredible luck, perseverance, and grit, Leyson was able to survive the sadism of the Nazis, including that of the demonic Amon Goeth, commandant of Plaszow, the concentration camp outside Krakow.<BR> <BR>Ultimately, it was the generosity and cunning of one man, Oskar Schindler, who saved Leon Leyson’s life, and the lives of his mother, his father, and two of his four siblings, by adding their names to his list of workers in his factory—a list that became world renowned: Schindler’s list.<BR> <BR>Told with an abundance of dignity and a remarkable lack of rancor and venom, <I>The Boy on the Wooden Box</I> is a legacy of hope, a memoir unlike anything you’ve ever read.

Their journey with the homeless started with RATS…the size of cats that can eat through tin cans and coolers. It’s Pittsburgh, 2016, not a far off third world country, but that’s what is seems like because they’re talking about feeding people on the streets outside…in the middle of winter. Encounter people living as no person should, hear their stories, and become transformed in the process. <br /><br /><b> …And This Is How It Ends </b> is the emotionally gripping true-story of a group of volunteers who started off serving meals in a park, and eventually began visiting homeless camps, interrupting drug deals, and encountering street fights.<br /><br /><b> Are the homeless a problem, or are they people with lives and stories just like you? </b><br /><br /><b> Praise For ...And This Is How It Ends </b><br /><br />"With keen insight and evident compassion, Jen Sky narrates her journey of coming to know, understand, befriend, and care for the women, children, and men who live at the margins of our cities. The stories she shares are as intense as they are enlightening. Jen doesn't shy away from the complexities and messiness, but instead seeks to see clearly, asking "What does it mean to really love my neighbors as myself?" and "What does it really mean to be an advocate for those on the margins?" All who read this book will come away changed, and inspired to go and do likewise." <br /><br />--Michael Yankoski, <i> Author of Under the Overpass </i><br /><br />"Jen Sky began by asking herself what she could do to help the homeless people she saw wandering the streets of her town, sleeping under the bridges and hiding in the trees of the local parks. As we follow her on this compassionate and eye-opening journey, we begin to see the homeless as individuals who have fallen out of relationship with themselves and with those around them.<br /> <br />Jen and her neighbors banded together to offer food and comfort where and when it was most needed. This simple act of kindness opened the doorway to a world that most of us ignore or do not want to enter. <br /><br />The insights she has gained are invaluable to anyone who has glimpsed a homeless person spending the night out in the open and asked: 'What can I do to help?'"<br /><br />--Robin Moore- <i> Author and Faculty Member, The Graduate Institute for Writing and Oral Traditions; Author of the Year, PA School Librarians Association </i><br /><br />"Jen Sky's honest sharing allows the reader to know the homeless - not just of them. Her accounts and observations lead us to face a truth we are afraid to see. The author admits there is no easy answer to all the issues involved in this ministry, but she is wise enough to leave the unanswered questions in the hands of God."<br /><br />--Mary "Mayme" Bulger, Author of <i> GOD EXPECTS ME, Living the Reality of Life by Embracing the Reality of God </i><br /><br />"Not only a beautiful testament to the serving nature of those who desire to reach those in need, but a story of personal transformation. Jen Sky truly catches us the contradictions of the heart in the tender situations we encounter when helping the homeless. Oh how I love this book!"<br /> <br />--Dana Falletti, Author of <i> Beautiful Secret and The Whisper Trilogy </i>

<p><b>In A Wrinkle in Time Quintet book two, Meg Murry, now in college, time travels with her twin brothers, Sandy and Dennys, to a desert oasis that is embroiled in war.</b></p><p>Sandy and Dennys have always been the normal, run-of-the-mill ones in the extraodinary Murry family. They garden, make an occasional A in school, and play baseball. Nothing especially interesting has happened to the twins until they accidentally interrupt their father's experiment.</p><p>Then the two boys are thrown across time and space. They find themselves alone in the desert, where, if they believe in unicorns, they can find unicorns, and whether they believe or not, mammoths and manticores will find them.</p><p>The twins are rescued by Japheth, a man from the nearby oasis, but before he can bring them to safety, Dennys gets lost. Each boy is quickly embroiled in the conflicts of this time and place, whose populations includes winged seraphim, a few stray mythic beasts, perilous and beautiful nephilim, and small, long lived humans who consider Sandy and Dennys giants. The boys find they have more to do in the oasis than simply getting themselves home--they have to reunite an estranged father and son, but it won't be easy, especially when the son is named Noah and he's about to start building a boat in the desert.</p><p><b>Books by Madeleine L'Engle</b><br /><b></b><br /><b>A Wrinkle in Time Quintet</b><br /><b></b><i>A Wrinkle in Time</i><br /><i>A Wind in the Door</i><br /><i>A Swiftly Tilting Planet</i><br /><i>Many Waters</i><br /><i>An Acceptable Time</i></p><p><i>A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel</i> by Madeleine L'Engle; adapted & illustrated by Hope Larson</p><p><i>Intergalactic P.S. 3</i> by Madeleine L'Engle; illustrated by Hope Larson: A standalone story set in the world of <i>A Wrinkle in Time</i>.</p><p><b>The Austin Family Chronicles</b><br /><i>Meet the Austins</i> (Volume 1) <br /><i>The Moon by Night</i> (Volume 2) <br /><i>The Young Unicorns</i> (Volume 3)<br /><i>A Ring of Endless Light </i>(Volume 4) A Newbery Honor book!<br /><i>Troubling a Star</i> (Volume 5)</p><p><b>The Polly O'Keefe books</b><br /><b></b><i>The Arm of the Starfish</i><br /><i>Dragons in the Waters</i><br /><i>A House Like a Lotus</i><br /><i></i><br /><i>And Both Were Young</i><br /><i></i><br /><i>Camilla</i><br /><i></i><br /><i>The Joys of Love</i></p>

The Bible as a Single, Powerful Story. Here is the entire story of the Bible, narrated by master storyteller Walter Wangerin Jr. Reading like a great historical novel, The Book of God dramatizes the sweep of biblical events, making the men and women of this ancient book come alive in vivid detail and dialogue. From Abraham wandering in the desert to Jesus teaching the multitudes on a Judean hillside, The Book of God follows the biblical story in chronological order. Priests and kings, apostles and prophets, common folk and charismatic leaders--individual stories offer glimpses into an unfolding revelation that reaches across the centuries to touch us today. Wangerin recreates the high drama, low comedy, gentle humor, and awesome holiness of the Bible story. Imaginative yet meticulously researched, The Book of God offers a sweeping history that stretches across thousands of years and hundreds of lives, in cultures foreign and yet familiar in their common humanity. History and fact take on personality and warmth. Wangerin shows you human hands--Abraham raising the knife over his son Isaac on Mount Moriah, a priest offering incense in the temple at Jerusalem, Joseph the carpenter at work with his tools. He shows you human faces--Moses and Aaron face-to-face with the king of Egypt, Mary smiling like a white rose, and Jesus laughing with a Samaritan woman. Gardens, humble homes, olive groves, palaces, temples, and the hills of Judea shining in the afternoon sun--Wangerin makes the places where the events of the Bible took place come to life in the imagination. Wangerin helps you understand what it was like for each person to be caught up in the events of a particular time and place--a time and place where the eternal God somehow reached out and touched ordinary men and women. The book of God is no ordinary book. Written by a born storyteller, it is the magnum opus of one of the most respected and beloved authors of our time.
