Between going out with his celebrity crush and his mom's campaign to be the next town mayor, Danny's got a lot to learn about life in the spotlight. When Danny Constantino asks his old-friend-turned-Hollywood-movie-star, Natalie Flores Griffin, to his local school dance and homecoming parade, she surprises him . . . by saying yes! Unfortunately, now everyone in Cuper Cove has something to say about Danny's love life--especially since Natalie is the hometown hero. Throw in herds of TV reporters and NFG groupies, his mom using Natalie's arrival for free publicity, and a pep rally gone horribly, horribly awry, and Danny's left absolutely clueless in this new world of crushes and becoming (kind of) famous.

For fans of Gary Schmidt and Joan Bauer, a laugh-out-loud intergenerational road trip story from acclaimed author Paul Acampora! Since the death of his grandfather, Leo's number one chore has been to chase after his grandmother who seems to wander away from home every few days. Now, Gram's decided to roam farther than ever. And despite his misgivings, Leo's going along for the ride. With his seventeen-year-old cousin, Abbey, and an old, gassy dog named Kermit, Leo joins Gram in a big, old Buick to leave their Pennsylvania home for a cross-country road trip filled with foldout maps, family secrets, new friends, and dinosaur bones. How to Avoid Extinction is a middle-grade comedy about death and food and family and fossils. It's about running away from home and coming back again. For Leo, it's about asking hard questions and hopefully finding some sensible answers. As if good sense has anything to do with it. Against a backdrop of America's stunning size and beauty, it's also about growing up, getting old, dreaming about immortality, and figuring out all the things we can -- and can't -- leave behind.

This study offers a lucid evaluation of both past proposals and present issues surrounding the structure of Hebrews. In addition to clear advances over past attempts at outlining Hebrews, the work suggests a fresh approach to text-linguistic analysis.

SYNOPSIS Tim wants nothing more than to be a normal boy, with normal friends, normal family, and normal problems. However, Tim is anything but normal. He has a secret giftmany would call it a cursethat allows his conscious mind to slide to random places and times for exactly 38 minutes each day. But are his slides truly random? Or is someone, or something, in control? One moment, Tim may be safely sleeping in his own bed, and the next thing he knows, he is on the other side of the world, wandering the streets of China, or struggling to save lives of those on a doomed airline flight. This is the story of Tims life and his pursuit for answers. Why is he not bound to one time and place? Who, or what, is in control of his slides? What purpose in life can a boy like Tim find as he grows up into a man? And through it all, can he and his lifelong friend, Lexie, find their way to a complicated but enduring love when the universe seems set against them? Time Slider is a heroic tale of life, when life is not all that it seems.

Cimbala analyzes "military persuasion"--the art of using armed force to support diplomacy, deterrence, crisis management, unconventional conflicts, peace operations, and other military activities short of major conventional war. As he shows, it calls for new methods and mind sets in diplomacy and in military operations. It also requires a U.S. public more tolerant of ambiguity and half measures, including the cutting of losses when necessary.
