<DIV><B>National bestseller</B><BR /><B>2017 National Book Critics Circle (NBCC) Finalist<BR /> ABA Indies Introduce Winter / Spring 2017 Selection<BR /> Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Spring 2017 Selection<BR /> ALA 2018 Notable Books Selection<BR /><BR /> An intimate and poignant graphic novel portraying one family’s journey from war-torn Vietnam, from debut author Thi Bui</B>.<BR />  <BR /> This beautifully illustrated and emotional story is an evocative memoir about the search for a better future and a longing for the past. Exploring the anguish of immigration and the lasting effects that displacement has on a child and her family, Bui documents the story of her family’s daring escape after the fall of South Vietnam in the 1970s, and the difficulties they faced building new lives for themselves.<BR />  <BR /> At the heart of Bui’s story is a universal struggle: While adjusting to life as a first-time mother, she ultimately discovers what it means to be a parent—the endless sacrifices, the unnoticed gestures, and the depths of unspoken love. Despite how impossible it seems to take on the simultaneous roles of both parent and child, Bui pushes through. With haunting, poetic writing and breathtaking art, she examines the strength of family, the importance of identity, and the meaning of home.<BR />  <BR /> In what Pulitzer Prize–winning novelist Viet Thanh Nguyen calls “a book to break your heart and heal it,” <I>The Best We Could Do</I> brings to life Thi Bui’s journey of understanding, and provides inspiration to all of those who search for a better future while longing for a simpler past.</DIV>

Sarai is a 12-year-old Nigerian girl whose modest village life is shattered when she is captured by the Ken Jou Plek an extremist organization dedicated to the idea that women and girls should be kept down. <br />Like all extremists, the KJP are prepared to realize this vision through torture, slavery, and bloodshed. Certain she is going to die, Sarai makes a bargain with an unusual ally in an attempt to save her life and the lives of her fellow captives.<br /><br />Tragedy, trauma, man's seemingly limitless capacity for cruelty, the frailty of human existence, justice, and retribution are all laid bare in this cutting-edge graphic novel.<br /><br />Brutally relevant and emotionally powerful , Sarai fits perfectly alongside such iconic antiheroes as Marvel Comics' The Punisher, Wolverine and Moon Knight and Image Comics' Hit-Girl.

<b>The hilarious, take-no-prisoners novel about a cynical, sex-obsessed teenager's pining love for an intelligent girl—the basis for the major motion picture starring Michael Cera.</b><br /><br /><i>Youth in Revolt</i> is the journals of Nick Twisp, California's most precocious diarist, whose ongoing struggles to make sense out of high school, deal with his divorced parents, and lose his virginity result in his transformation from an unassuming fourteen-year-old to a modern youth in open revolt. As his family splinters, worlds collide, and the police block all routes out of town, Nick must cope with economic deprivation, homelessness, the gulag of the public schools, a competitive type-A father, murderous canines, and an inconvenient hair trigger on his erectile response—all while vying ardently for the affections of the beauteous Sheeni Saunders, teenage goddess, and ultimate intellectual goad.

This books for kids is relatable for children of any ages.<br />Children love learning and there are some things that they have to learn as they grow up, whether it’s learning to read, ride a bike, swim, or so much more. However, children also get sick sometimes and aren’t happy that a cough or cold prevents them from doing what they enjoy. <br /><br />Baby Dragon Has A Cold is a wonderful bedtime story for young children, in which they learn how even animals sometimes become ill and have to wait until they get better before they can have fun again. This rhyming story is accompanied by delightful color illustrations throughout the book that are sure to thrill young readers.<br /><br />Baby Dragon is learning how to shoot fire with his father and older brother, until a cold spoils his plans. Children will identify with Baby Dragon as he learns that he has to take time away from favorite activities, so that he is well enough again to practice what he needs to master in order to grow up. Parents and teachers can also employ Baby Dragon Has A Cold to teach children about the need to look after their bodies, so that they can do the things that they enjoy and become healthy adults. <br /><br />This is a book for bedtime reading with younger children, but older children will also enjoy reading Baby Dragon Has A Cold on their own.<br /><br /><br />
