<DIV>You might recognize firecracker JoJo Siwa from <I>Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition</I>, or maybe you fell in love with her on <I>Dance Moms</I>. JoJo’s nonfiction middle-grade debut is the next generation’s version of a real life Cinderella story: Nebraska girl becomes Hollywood’s belle of the ball, thanks to her spunky attitude and creative drive. Through the lens of JoJo’s personal experience and playful voice, she digs into themes such as finding your passion, keeping strong in the face of adversity, appreciating your individualism, the importance of being loyal, and never giving up. Most of all, JoJo’s story is meant to inspire young girls to find the courage and confidence to go after their dreams. Go Siwanatorz!<BR />  </DIV>

<p>During World War II a community called Manzanar was hastily created in the high mountain desert country of California, east of the Sierras. Its purpose was to house thousands of Japanese American internees. One of the first families to arrive was the Wakatsukis, who were ordered to leave their fishing business in Long Beach and take with them only the belongings they could carry. For Jeanne Wakatsuki, a seven-year-old child, Manzanar became a way of life in which she struggled and adapted, observed and grew. For her father it was essentially the end of his life.<br /><br /> At age thirty-seven, Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston recalls life at Manzanar through the eyes of the child she was. She tells of her fear, confusion, and bewilderment as well as the dignity and great resourcefulness of people in oppressive and demeaning circumstances. Written with her husband, Jeanne delivers a powerful first-person account that reveals her search for the meaning of Manzanar.<br /><br /><i>Farewell to Manzanar</i> has become a staple of curriculum in schools and on campuses across the country. Last year the <i>San Francisco Chronicle</i> named it one of the twentieth century’s 100 best nonfiction books from west of the Rockies.<br /><br /> First published in 1973, this new edition of the classic memoir of a devastating Japanese American experience includes an inspiring afterword by the authors. </p>

<b>America’s beloved and distinguished historian presents, in a book of breathtaking excitement, drama, and narrative force, the stirring story of the year of our nation’s birth, 1776, interweaving, on both sides of the Atlantic, the actions and decisions that led Great Britain to undertake a war against her rebellious colonial subjects and that placed America’s survival in the hands of George Washington.</b><br /><br />In this masterful book, David McCullough tells the intensely human story of those who marched with General George Washington in the year of the Declaration of Independence—when the whole American cause was riding on their success, without which all hope for independence would have been dashed and the noble ideals of the Declaration would have amounted to little more than words on paper.<br /> <br /> Based on extensive research in both American and British archives, <i>1776</i> is a powerful drama written with extraordinary narrative vitality. It is the story of Americans in the ranks, men of every shape, size, and color, farmers, schoolteachers, shoemakers, no-accounts, and mere boys turned soldiers. And it is the story of the King’s men, the British commander, William Howe, and his highly disciplined redcoats who looked on their rebel foes with contempt and fought with a valor too little known.<br /> <br /> Written as a companion work to his celebrated biography of John Adams, David McCullough’s <i>1776</i> is another landmark in the literature of American history.

Sandra had been a merchant traveling through the human lands of Muriel, though that wouldn’t have been her chosen profession. What she would’ve loved to become was a crafter, producing wondrous creations with her own two hands; however, she didn’t want to become a master in just one craft – she was interested in them all.<br /><br />Unfortunately, Sandra was born with a deformity in her hands that made them appear frozen in a claw-like pose; as a result, she couldn’t grip anything with any sort of strength or dexterity, meaning that she wasn’t able craft anything but the most simple of things that required very little in the way of hand-based manipulation. To top it off, while most people could access and manipulate at least one or two of the basic elemental energies, she could see them all – but was unable to manipulate a single one.<br /><br />Despite these setbacks, Sandra spent the majority of her twenty-six years of life visually learning the processes, techniques, and secret formulas for every aspect of crafting she could discover. And it was that pursuit of knowledge that ultimately led to her untimely death.<br /><br />Reborn in the shape of a tiny Dungeon Core, Sandra learned about the purpose behind dungeons and Cores from an assigned dungeon helper; at the same time, she also discovered that she had much more freedom than most other Dungeon Cores. The repercussions of her mere existence could end up being far-reaching, but the most important thing she learned had nothing to do with the other Cores, the different races, or even the real purpose behind her being brought back to life as a strange glowing gem.<br /><br />Sandra didn’t care about any of that, though – all she cared about was that she could finally do some crafting.<br /><br />This Dungeon Core story contains LitRPG/GameLit elements such as statistics and leveling and a heavy crafting emphasis. No profanity and no harems.<br /><br />Update 8/7/19: Fixed more grammatical errors/typos

Mukouda Tsuyoshi – alias, ‘Mukohda’ – was an ordinary Japanese salaryman until he was summoned to a fantasy world of swords and magic. Mukohda’s unique skill made him the only person in this world with access to modern Japanese products, but the real reason he caught the attention of the legendary magic beast, Fenrir, was his ability to cook delicious food!<br /><br />Now with a ludicrously overpowered Fenrir and a baby slime in tow, Mukohda and friends continue their laid-back journey in search of easy-living in a new kingdom. In spite of his best efforts, it seems Mukohda can’t help but get wrapped up in the adventurer lifestyle. Will this reluctant “hero” win fame, fortune, and fair maidens while he tries to fly under the radar? With food this good, he’s bound to make new friends whether he likes it or not — much to the dismay of his number 1 fan, Ninrir, the goddess with a sweet tooth. Unfortunately for her, she isn’t the only denizen of the divine realm to take notice of Mukohda’s access to otherworld goods and sweets, and the other goddesses might have demands of their own!
