In this Newbery Honor novel, New York Times bestselling author Rita Williams-Garcia tells the story of three sisters who travel to Oakland, California, in 1968 to meet the mother who abandoned them. "This vibrant and moving award-winning novel has heart to spare."* Eleven-year-old Delphine is like a mother to her two younger sisters, Vonetta and Fern. She's had to be, ever since their mother, Cecile, left them seven years ago for a radical new life in California. But when the sisters arrive from Brooklyn to spend the summer with their mother, Cecile is nothing like they imagined. While the girls hope to go to Disneyland and meet Tinker Bell, their mother sends them to a day camp run by the Black Panthers. Unexpectedly, Delphine, Vonetta, and Fern learn much about their family, their country, and themselves during one truly crazy summer. This moving, funny novel won the Scott O'Dell Award for Historical Fiction and the Coretta Scott King Award and was a National Book Award Finalist. Delphine, Vonetta, and Fern's story continues in P.S. Be Eleven and Gone Crazy in Alabama. Readers who enjoy Christopher Paul Curtis's The Watsons Go to Birmingham and Jacqueline Woodson’s Brown Girl Dreaming will find much to love in One Crazy Summer. This novel was the first featured title for Marley D’s Reading Party, launched after the success of #1000BlackGirlBooks. Maria Russo, in a New York Times list of "great kids' books with diverse characters," called it "witty and original." *Brightly, in Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich's article "Knowing Our History to Build a Brighter Future: Books to Help Kids Understand the Fight for Racial Equality"

With over 250,000 books downloaded worldwide, the bestselling author of The Mystic Saga, Dominion, Saving Brooksie, and Ghosts of Ophidian now brings you a tale of three teenagers who may have just found a modern day treasure map at their summer job. It's the summer of 1999 and the price of gas is $1.09 per gallon, J-Lo is releasing her first album, and in the small town of Riverton, Bradley Brock is searching for 1.3 million dollars. With the whole summer ahead of him, Bradley stumbles unwittingly into his first summer job. While it appears to be an opportunity to learn responsibility and make a few bucks in the process, it is anything but! With a manager that likes to play pranks and sports in the store, a cashier that is encouraged to harass customers, and a crazy guy who knocks holes in the walls, Brad finds himself almost alone in his sanity. Then Brad discovers a journal that documents a fellow employee's search for a large bag of money that was lost many years ago. With the assistance of two of his friends, he embarks on a journey to follow the trail of the money and ultimately to nab it for themselves. The only problem - someone else is searching for the same bag of money and he's willing to kill for it. Scott McElhaney is the recipient of the Christian Choice Book Award for his first suspense novel "Mommy's Choice." Now he is making most of his novels available to Kindle readers at the very accessible price of only 99 cents. Scott is a veteran of the US Navy, serving aboard the USS South Carolina in the Red Sea during Operation Desert Shield. He's been happily married for more than 20 years, and is a proud father of two boys. This book is the results of spending more than 5 years as the "world's worst store manager" (in his opinion) at a local business that will remain unnamed - some of the best years of Scott's life. Curiously enough, much of the insanity in this novel is actually based on true life events.

When your world feels like it’s going crazy … the one thing you can count on is love. Jeremy is a big, burly, self-proclaimed redneck beta. He ’s not too happy with the way his life is going, but he doesn’t know where to look to find what he wants. But when he suddenly transitions into an omega one crazy night … and becomes pregnant … his life is turned upside down. Alex is an alpha who is very loyal to his Puerto Rican family. He works hard at their landscaping business and helps take care of his brother’s kids. When he finds Jeremy at the drive-in theater, in heat and surrounded by hungry alphas, he takes him home where he will be safe. But, as responsible as he is, Alex can’t control his animal urges when he comes into contact with Jeremy’s intoxicating scent. When he finds out he’s a father, Alex not only has to figure out how to provide for two families, but he has to convince Jeremy to keep the baby. Can Alex convince Jeremy that the little being growing inside him is meant to be? And that the love between the two of them and their family might just be what he’s been wanting all along? His Crazy Summer is an opposites attract romance of 38k words. It includes a feisty beta-turned-omega, some foul language, incredibly hot sex between two huge men, male pregnancy, and the kind of HEA with a sweet, cuddly baby you've come to expect from Xander Collins.
