Hi I've been looking for this book hoping its not a figment of my imagination because the same year I checked it out from my middle school library, I went to go back to look for it and there was no record of it. I can't remember BIG details but its a girl and her best friend who want to train to become soldiers for their town? And there also exist healing magic that everyone looks down upon. She visits a healing doctor in which she becomes somewhat interested in magic. I believe this magic involves talking to plants. The cover of the book, the print is a girl holding a leaf to her chest.
The hard copy of the book is just a brown book with the outline of a leaf in gold. I'm looking for a book that I read in Middle or High school about a girl who draws her own comics and gets bullied a lot for it so she retreats to an online RPG to meet a guy on it who helps her feel better and then later finds out he's a guy who goes to her school and is one of the most popular guys in school. The cover is white and has a drawing of 2 girls meeting in the middle of the book at the waist and are opposite to each other horizontally.
One girl has long blonde hair and is an Elf and the other girl I think has brown hair. It is probably a teen novel. I am looking for a book that I read in highschool around This boy found a book or a box of some sort that allowed him to go to this like spirit world. There he learned about this prophecy that he was involved in. Come to realize it was him and his sister that were needed to defeat the evil immortal.
I think the sister had this blossoming relationship with one of the knowledge immortals or something like that. I have a hard time remembering the author, titke, and basic ploy of the book but I would really love to read the series again. I think it was like 3 or 4 books. I'd appreciate any help from the very vague description lol.
I am looking for a book about these girls that live in a time where people are all broke and oppressed and like this girl and her best friend who pretended to be her sister to got to the same like boarding school and like the one girls parents had money and the friends didn't and so like they trick the school with like fake id bracelets and they like have their entire lives on like technology and the school takes it away from them and they go in to some remote place in the woods and they learn survival skills and like how to use guns but it turns out the school is really an enemy like spy training school and so they escape and like they meet some boys spend the night in a cabin that is also the enemy's and so they run away that's all I know tho so.
I need help finding a book I believe its a short series, maybe 2 or 3 books total. Its about a boy that was born and mother was killed while he was young. A man took him in and raised him. He grew up and had powers many people in the book have a particular power but most keep secret. He gets arrested and has to help a King's youngest son get landed or face execution. One of the King's advisors is also someone with powers and is trying to kill and take all other powers from those that have them.
This is a fantasy series and for the life of me cant remember the name or author. It's a harlequin romance book. Hero and heroine are in love and heroine becomes pregnant. Hero's father tries to pay her off. So heroine leaves hero and have the baby. Hero meets his son. I need help with a title and author of a book i read in the last year or so.. Female teacher possibly named Holly who is dumped before Christmas holiday break and a male teacher a widower possibly named Simon invites her to go to a cabin in Scotland with him.
It is a novel I believe it's called believers or something of the sort. The author I believe is a native American, and the book is very complex I didn't get far enough to find the underlying plot. It's filled with underworlds and corrupt cops and murder and there's a scene where children are in hell and helping each other survive while a corrupt god tortures them.
In the scene with the kids in the beggining of the book, they escape from the back of a cop car and run for hours while they're epoxied zombies bodies fall apart. The book bounces around a timeline and different settings, making it like a puzzle. There's a scene where the cop talks about how his dad would show him a crop circle or something which led to the underworld, and another scene where they find the pieces of children sewed together in the back of a native Americans car that the cops framed or something.
It sounds fucked up but it's a great book and it's been years and I am unable to find it. I thought I'd take a shot and ask around. I don't believe it's a very famous author. And the cop had took a young girl to prom and killed her. The cop could smell a storm coming. I read this book when I was younger. It's about a woman who is in a relation ship with a singer, but they fell apart because she fell in love with another man. I know the woman had a small animal. I am pretty sure the Title had the word diva in it, but I'm not completely sure. I read a book when I was younger It's about a woman in a relationship with a singer, but they drifted apart after a while.
The woman fell in love with another man, but he left her because she couldn't make up her mind at first over which man to choose in the end she chose the second man. I know she had a little dog. I'm pretty sure the title had to word diva in it, but i'm not entirely certain. I read a book maybe years ago about an older gentleman whose wife had died and he was just existing. The wife had a beautiful garden that was just overgrown and neglected and I think a college student or grandchild - maybe - came and was trying to get him to reconnect to life.
Seems there was a flood towards the end. I might be mixing books, but would love it if someone could help me remember this book. I read a book series in the early 's called Seven. There were seven books in the series, each titled the name of the main character I believe. I cannot find a mention of this series anywhere. The characters are all former childhood friends that share a secret and have drifted apart because of it, yet believe their ill-fortune all stems from the secret they each feel responsible for shooting a friend at a birthday party when they were 8, even though it was an accident.
I can't remember what all they go through, but I do remember a few of the books plot points: One girl was an Asian adopted as a baby by a white couple and is assaulted by a friend of her parents, one boy is half-black and paralyzed in an accident, another boy whose parents run a shelter and is a sports star at the high school struggles with being gay, another girl that is a cheerleader tries to hold onto her romance with her boyfriend that went to college but he uses her instead, the other boy is trying not to outdo his brother in football, but ends up playing and stealing his brother's scholarship or maybe just gets a better one.
I would like to get this book series to hold onto for my daughter when she is in high school because it did help me and others I knew that read it get through certain traumas and hardships in school. Trying to find a book where starts of with a young lad on his way to school and on his way be picks up random objects. These were used then at school. The elastic band to keep some artwork together and the safety pin was used to help pin a girls broken dress strap.
I read it when I was at school in the 90s. I read a book about 6 years ago, it was so good. Theres this book i read about 5 years ago and i cant remember the title or anything but it was about this boy who felt like he was being watched by these strange people. He starts having these dreams of horrid scenes and his best freind whom he has a crush on later finds out they are moments in history like when he had a dream of being on a slave ship. Later on in the story the people who watch him reveal that they along with him have live basically foreverbut in different bodies and by different names.
Well thats all i can remember about it at the moment but ide like to know what its called so i can read it again. I was reading a book i was admitted in a children's hospital back in And when I was there they had a LOT of books to read. There was a particular book I keep rememb but not a lot of details of it. The book was about a kid who lived in a zoo. He never went to school, I think, and mer this kid that became his friend. She would play games with him and stuff. She tells him about a event of this big ball of knots that no one is able to until. And he comes along to try to untie it.
That's all I can remember of it. I'm hoping someone here can help me find the book again. I believe there was a story about this blind person going on a blind date with someone who was not blind, a character had two different eye colors, and another thing I remember are these two characters a guy and a girl who met in a church and there was this electric connection between them. Anything would be helpful, thank you.
I partially read this book in college, someone had suggested, but never had the chance to finish it before returning it. I forgot the title, but I think the title was a double entendre. The book is a story being told by a primate, chimpanzee or ape. The primate is discussing where we are heading as humans, a kind of warning about how we are impacting the environment. I do recall a metaphor where the primate describes a person believing they were flying a pedal powered craft, and the primate said, from the pilot's point of view they may believe they are flying even as we can observe they are falling, and until impact they may maintain their belief; something to that affect.
I wish I could remember the name of this book as I was enjoying it before I returned it. I read a short story in college as part of Southern gothic literature course. Story is from perspective of adolescent black boy who lives with his grandmother in Jim Crow south.

She wants the items to decorate her city dwelling and to impress her intellectual circle. When a dog gets hydrophobia he becomes convinced that there are only bones. The dog becomes jealous when his mistress acquires a male admirer. I am looking for a romance book, I do not know the name or what year it was published just that I read it before Here is what I know.
The heroine is from England and the hero is not English or American. She had a child with him, that he did not know about. The heroine was hit by a car while walking across the street, she is very sick, has pneumonia, but the hero thinks she is a drug addict because when DFS was called on her to check on the child, because they live in poverty the heroine, the DFS person noted a white powder on the counter top, which was actually flu powder, the heroine also had a knife because she was cutting carrots.
The hero hires a nurse to take care of the heroine also. My boyfriend read a book when he was about 15, he said it had the word game in the title. He does these things for money and the price increases with every new task he is given. Samantha - I don't know the title of the children's ghost story book you're looking for, but I do know the story about the marble knight is called Man Size in Marble, by Edith Nesbit.
The one about the artist may be Schalken the Painter, by J. Sheridan Le Fanu - the artist paints a portrait of a young woman called Rose. Sorry I couldn't be more help! I'm trying to remember the name of this horror book my brother had in the 90's, i can vaguely remember the plot and the cover and nothing else. I don't know why i'm thinking font in the title was like goosebumps but this was from what i remember it was way to dark and graphic for that series.
I am looking for a book I read a few years ago. I remember there being a unicorn somewhere. Looking for a book I read a while ago about a blind woman who was raped while in college after the ordeal she isolates her self. One day a doctor shows up at her door about a surgery that could help her regain her eyesight. She's hesitant to trust him at first but eventually does.

It was basically about her life but what I remember is that she had a pet rabbit that she loved and which she eventually had to sacrifice to save a sibling's life.
Looking for a book that I read in the 70s. It might have been a Scholastic book. It was about a young Native American girl and her life with her tribe. What I remember best is that she had a pet rabbit that she loved and which she eventually had to sacrifice to save the life of her sibling. American couple, baby and nanny on flight to Ireland when the plane crashes.
The sole survivor is the baby, who is rescued and taken to Ireland. Story ends with the baby's brother meeting her and falling in love. American couple, baby and nanny on flight to Ireland.

The 2nd sister is glamored into not remembering she had a twin during that time. It ends with the 2nd sister and her baby dying as she gives the remaining soul to her sister. Some details may be a little mixed up. Twin sister comes home to join her coven, after a death in the family, and there are strange neighbors with powers, who murder someone, bury and glamor all evidence away.
They take an interest in her and she ends up falling in love with the main male character, who I believe is part demon or something. There is a prophecy that this demon tries to prevent, which is by killing each woman reborn, of the love of his life who betrayed him and he inturn killed her, after she cursed him.
Lucifer or another demon, r working with this woman, and they entwines and split a soul between two sisters to hide the evidence of her rebirth, kill a lot of the coven and then steal and impregnate the other sister. She becomes preganant and the bad lady tries to kill her and the only way to save herself and her sister, is to sacrifice her life and that of her child, so her sister gets the good soul. I think it somehow was entwined with the baby but some areas are vague. What is the name of book where girl is taken in by bird people and raised in a library and threatened by dragon people I know she had a friend that clung to her hair and her shoulders a lot.
Please help with the name of the book? I cant remember the title if someone could please help i would appreciate it!! This may be a short story and it's about two young boys that are twins. The "bad" twin does bad stuff and the "good" twin tries to cover it up or be helpful But in the end there is a twist and you find out it's only one boy.
I read this in an English high school class in the late 80's. For some reason I think of Ten Little Indians but not sure if that's part of it. I read a book in when I was a 6th grader about a guy who is struck by lightening and wakes up in a war. The war had Japanese or Vietnamese soldiers I forget which.

I believe the story begins with him in the attic or basement of his house and looking through old war items his father had because he was a veteran. He is struck by lightening when he is riding his bike. I am not sure of anything else but I remember this book being short. I'm looking for a book I read a few years ago when I wasn't quite a young adult. I remember that it had like a pink and green cover, it was a young adult novel.
The summary of it is that there were 2 girls who were best friends but the best friend of the main character was getting "too popular" for the main character and they split ways because of that. She became a bully towards her. Then our main character went to visit her dad at work and met his new assistant and they clicked.
He brought her to parties and such without the dad knowing. They had a secret relationship. But then at the end, when it was her school dance, her former best friend was trying to take away her man because she didnt deserve someone so hot. But main character just laughed and her bf asked the former best friend to dance, knowing that former best friend was way to insecure and main character knew that he loved her for her and not because shes hot or unpopular.
It was an illustrated childrens' book in the library of the small private Catholic school I attended til I was 10 and I can still remember the pictures so clearly, and have searched for almost two decades with no luck. It has several short stories and there's faint blood splatter on nearly every page. There was a story about a couple who moved into a cottage in a small town -- the husband is warned about the stone knights in the church coming to life on a certain night and he goes to see if all is well, but only notices two fingers broken off one statue.
When he returns home, his wife is dead but in her clenched hand are the stone knight's fingers. There's one about a cowboy set to be hanged but his neck stretches crazy long and he runs around terrorizing everyone with his eyes bulged out until someone shoots him dead. There's one about a painter who meets this young woman and something about a rose and he paints her portrait and at the end finds out she was actually a ghost.
And one about a homeless? They move into a castle her aunt and some cousins are in but is maybe really supposed to belong to her and her sister now I think. She meets a handsome land owner, Adrian who has a black stallion. And then in the end they find out it was the crazy aunt the whole time trying to make her think the place was haunted and to drive her away. I am looking for a book It's about a woman who owns a civic center for her neighborhood trying to keep kids off the streets.
She teaches pole dancing classes to elderly women to. He is the leader of a rock band and is known as the dark prince. He chooses her as his mate when he is a child and now other races are hunting her to get to him. Because if they kill her they can weaken him. That is the basics of the story I remember way more than that but I can't seem to find the book anywhere now. Can someone please help me? A short story about a Native American? After the week her brother and her are brought back home and while her brother is in bad shape after spending the week eating crickets and berries, she's healthy as ever.
They ask how they did it and after she explains they don't consider it cheating since she did survive the week in the woods. She works at a marketing firm and rarely goes home to visit her father and step mom on the farm. She gets laid off and goes home to the farm to regroup. She ends up using her skills to help her parents create a vacation spot out of the farm. Her brochure gets the attention of the high powered executive she had worked for and eventually gets her an even better position at the marketing firm.
There's this book that I've been looking for. I remember a phrase on the front cover but not the title itself or the author. The phrase is something along the lines of "would you rather have the perfect life or the perfect love. In both lives, she looks exactly the same but her lives are very different. In one, she's really rich and has the ideal family and boyfriend.
In the other, she's really poor and only lives with her mom. Whenever she turns 18, her parents throw her a huge birthday party at her house. She's afraid that the party is going to last past midnight and experience the switch herself, which she's never done before. She's also met another guy in her other life where shes poor and starts to fall in love.
She starts contemplating what life she wants to stay in and plans to kill one of her selves just to stop the cycle. I don't remember the author or the title, just a phrase on the front cover. The phrase says something along the lines of "would you rather have the perfect life or the perfect love. She switches at midnight every night while she's sleeping.
Her 2 bodies are exactly the same, but her lives in each are very different. In the first one, she's really rich, has the ideal family, and has the perfect boyfriend. In the second, she is poor and only lives with her mom. In the life where shes poor, she's also met a man that she's starting to fall in love with. One day, in her second life, she injures her ankle. She's worried that she'll wake up in her other life with an injury as well, but the injury doesn't transfer over.
She starts to contemplate what life she wants to live in and starts experimenting on her body. She starts off by cutting herself to see if the injury transfers over. She dyes her hair to see if it also changes when she switches back and forth. She ends up in a mental hospital because her mom thinks she's suicidal from all the injuries and changes and stays there for a while. The man that she likes works there and she tells him about her switching.
He doesn't believe her at first but she ends up proving it to him.

I think I came up with that in the early 80s when I found myself at White Earth teaching and thinking. Because… I grew up in the shadow of 3M and I knew they made tape, I could smell it and I figured if I liked molecules and medicine plants and I studied their shapes… but how do we get students interested?
I realized that everything is a chemical. I came up with about nine or ten molecules that I thought would be really essential to know. Then we made the shapes and you can make it tactile. In fact, I guess we were all synesthetes back when we were all in our mothers during the first two thirds of the pregnancy. For six months, our five senses were still joined.
They were not yet differentiated. In some rare people, some wonderfully gifted people, one in a hundred thousand they say, at least two of those five senses are still joined. So they process the sensory information of the universe where a color might give them a number or a taste; a touch might give them a sound or a taste. As I wondered what are some of these learning techniques that might transfer or why do we remember something so vividly, the ancient memories, and even those dreams that come.
When they may be, in fact, intergenerational dreams. The conscientization is more here [down? When I hear you say decolonization, I think of purification. One of the things I learned in South America is the knotted string system, the khipu or quipu.
The relationship of how the strings are attached to each other shows the data relationships. They use icthyhotoxins and tetrodotoxins… [natural chemicals in those amazing fish and toads] and then they hunt. Back up here now we have the Bakken Library, electromedicine history, Frankenstein, and they have the herb garden.
I could bring some of what I learned from the south. Right here by Lake Calhoun where we always had our foxglove, our digitalis, the willow and the aspirin, you figure out how to make and use those medicine shapes. Well, I figured out how to make these khipu strings to encode chemical structure. So a red string would be carbon. My grandmother would play Scrabble with me. Now Vine DeLoria Jr.
The strings hold the data that can represent something in the real world. But the mind is the bridge between these number patterns and what we think are sensory patterns in the real world, the five senses. We think this is real but the numbers are just as real. Everything is built of that, I guess the Greeks were talking about that, but we had that [philosophy — universal curiosity — Makasitomniyan Wasdodyawacinpi ] too. We recognize in the turtle shell the thirteen scutes and in the moon and in music, the 13 months and notes. The mind has those pieces in its ancient mind.
Vine Deloria writes a lot in his book about Jung and Cassirer. Ernst Cassirer is a philosopher. Why did they speak to me in those drawers in the museum cases in Peru? I keep finding many applications. He died in His work was really the metaphysics of these symbolic forms. To Plato they were the five perfect shapes: The first thing we do in our indigenous math and science program is to let the kids build these shapes.
And that soccer ball shape is one of those Take a piece of salt. On the west coast of Peru there are these natural crystals, iron pyrite, gold looking cube shapes in the desert sand, and you can see the stonework that was done by the Inca and pre-Inca groups. They recognize these number patterns.
I want to start here and then we can bridge. What would be a few simple things that you can tell a person to start teaching differently? The pedagogy, the how. What keeps kids excited and awake and into it? There are some wonderful techniques as well. There is a national organization called National Urban Alliance. They looked at many techniques that helped keep urban kids, primarily African-American but also Latino and Native students [involved … in] whose achievement data there was a gap.
What needs to be done to deal with this gap? They bring in the latest research and these techniques are really good. I see why they work with us. A couple of practical things: He believes there are 8 thinking processes. He gets kids to work in groups and brainstorm those words. The other processes involve cause and effect or this produces this. Each of those in turn produces something new. Each of these eight maps has the potential to help kids wrestle their words and thoughts down on paper. And they do it in groups.
As you said, relationship is central also. Michael Apple at University of Wisconsin, Madison, has a book called Official Knowledge that helps flesh out these terms. It has 32 faces and 60 corners. Carbon atoms blown out of stars make this shape all by themselves. Carbon is the most social element in the universe. There is no better atom made in stars at sharing with itself and others.
We get life but we also get chlorofluorocarbons. I remember when they were teaching us about reactor design. Now at least they are recycling the flow [for profit, not necessarily for the environment or the law]. For example, the David Hyerle flow map [can be used to show the law of conservation of matter that] realizes that nothing goes away, it just goes around and gets reused in multiple forms. That is an ethic.
They were looking at us and said, the soil here looks good. You think this is the best place for hundreds of thousands [or millions] of years? Those of us who know what these half life concepts are… we educate ourselves. We all need to know about this, especially that uranium fuel cycle and our relatives in the Southwest, etc. That involves our philosophy, our axiology, our metaphysics. We have to be thinking and mindful of the inter-generational piece. They say that those concrete casks at Prairie Island will hold it for 10, years.
We must take a long view. One thing I can say to those who want to teach science is, learn it well first. Learn it as well as we can and realize again in our humility, our short-sightedness. The eggshells got so thin, we thought we were killing off mosquitoes to make it safer for the soldiers in the trenches with yellow fever and malaria but we were killing eagles instead and all kinyan oyate kin , the flying nations.
My great grandpa, born I was probably six or seven years old. He was alive when there were just a few hundred left. Literally maybe from the 60 million. I think he wanted to pass on that ethic to me in one story. I was pretty young, around first or second grade.
You know… ake again..? He would interact in that Circle. Everything is sacred, is washte. It was a story that had skipped two, three generations. A story like that makes the circling atoms in the periodic table come alive…. The atoms are alive, they speak because we are speaking.
The atoms and the molecules are us. Molecules are able to tell the story of the universe, that makes it sacred. I apologize for being so verbose. We talk too much. Keep the emphasis on the students, not on the teacher talk. In the storytelling that we would incorporate, the atoms and molecules come alive. We are those molecules. He spent many books and a lifetime documenting that [our view is somewhere between or different from a strict western Big Bang view or the creationism view].
Sandy Grande, Red Pedagogy: Native American Social and Political Thought. Regarding some recommended books, here is another one that I really like, this is a Quechua person Peru, Bolivia named Sandy Grande. I would encourage people to chew on this. Her family came up from Peru to New York. He has his Indian pony, Pokey, with the feather and headband… They get a message through the window, an arrow flies in and sticks on the wall of the BIA office. He calls in Pokey and says, what is this?
What group would send us this message? Maybe Pokey can read it. They put the punch card into a computer and they get a visual picture on the screen. It shows smoke signals on the screen. Pokey can read the smoke signals. So they fly out to this reservation and they find out that their kids are being taken from them.
They lower down a net and grab the Indian kids. All the Indian kids, everyone is clay in this movie, are cone shapes… tipi heads. Again, the alphabet and alphabetic literacy has in many ways taken the circularity out of us. They get kind of cone-shaped now… and have to trade eyeballs with us.
