So begins a new adventure for Ada, and for Susan Smith, the woman who is forced to take the two kids in.

But in the end, will their bond be enough to hold them together through wartime? Or will Ada and her brother fall back into the cruel hands of their mother? This masterful work of historical fiction is equal parts adventure and a moving tale of family and identity—a classic in the making.

The War I Finally Won


A New York Times bestseller Like the classic heroines of Sarah, Plain and Tall, Little Women, and Anne of Green Gables, Ada is a fighter for the ages. Her triumphant World War II journey continues in this sequel to the Newbery Honor–winning The War that Saved My Life When Ada’s clubfoot is surgically fixed at last, she knows for certain that she’s not what her mother said she was—damaged, deranged, crippled mentally as well as physically. She’s not a daughter anymore, either. Who is she now? World War II rages on, and Ada and her brother, Jamie, move with their guardian, Susan, into a cottage with the iron-faced Lady Thorton and her daughter, Maggie. Life in the crowded home is tense. Then Ruth moves in. Ruth, a Jewish girl, from Germany. A German? Could Ruth be a spy? As the fallout from war intensifies, calamity creeps closer, and life during wartime grows even more complicated. Who will Ada decide to be? How can she keep fighting? And who will she struggle to save? Ada’s first story, The War that Saved My Life, was a #1 New York Times bestseller and won a Newbery Honor, the Schneider Family Book Award, and the Josette Frank Award, in addition to appearing on multiple best-of-the-year lists. This second masterwork of historical fiction continues Ada's journey of family, faith, and identity, showing us that real freedom is not just the ability to choose, but the courage to make the right choice.

Things Seen From Above


A shift in perspective can change everything. This brilliant new novel from the author of The Seventh Most Important Thing celebrates kids who see the world a little differently. April is looking for an escape from the sixth-grade lunch hour, which has become a social-scene nightmare, so she signs up to be a "buddy bench monitor" for the fourth graders' recess. Joey Byrd is a boy on the fringes, who wanders the playground alone, dragging his foot through the dirt. But over time, April realizes that Joey isn't just making random circles. When you look at his designs from above, a story emerges... Joey's "bird's eye" drawings reveal what he observes and thinks about every day. Told in alternating viewpoints--April's in text and Joey's mostly in art--the story gives the "whole picture" of what happens as these two outsiders find their rightful places.

A Book Of Storms


Ann had done everything right while growing up. She did well in school, went to church, taught Sunday school, protected her brothers from bullies, helped her mother with the cooking and cleaning, and even put herself through university. According to the magic formula of happiness, all that she needed to do now was get a good job, marry a hard-working man, live an honest life and everything else would fall into place. Yet even after doing everything right, Ann's life insisted on going horribly wrong. After four and a half decades of hardship and struggle she could only ask the question that everyone asks at times like these: Why would God allow this to happen? Now, by retracing her steps and applying biblical scripture to those difficult times she understands that it's the challenges in life that shaped her. Reading the Bible can be a huge, confusing task for many people since it seems that scripture is outdated and no longer applies to today's lifestyle. While difficult to understand, the Bible is not as out of date as some people think. A Book of Storms takes the confusion out of some of the most misunderstood passages from the Bible and relates them to everyday life. If you would like to apply biblical verses to the ups and downs of your regular lifestyle, and learn how God uses hardship to bring us closer to Him, this is the book for you.
