Teen Time Travel Novels 2-Book Bundle contains two complete young adult time travel novels by bestselling author R. Barri Flowers, including Danger in Time and Christmas Wishes. Danger in Time Rachel Crane was just six when her older sister, Brooke, died in a car accident ten years ago at the age of sixteen. Rachel often wishes that Brooke was still alive and there for her. That fantasy has to take a back seat to the reality of being sent to stay with her grandmother for the summer, leaving Rachel’s boyfriend behind in Lake Melrose, Oregon. Just before she’s supposed to leave home, Rachel runs up to the attic--a place she often goes for some down time. A mysterious antique musical clockwatch literally appears at her feet. She picks it up, feels slightly dizzy, and finds herself transported back in time to the day her sister died. After saving Brooke from her fate, Rachel finds herself back in the future, where it appears the whole thing was merely a dream when she suffered a mild concussion. Then Rachel realizes she really did travel back in time and, as a result, changed her sister’s destiny to something even more ominous. While trying to understand the mysterious clockwatch and its origin, Rachel uses it to go back again to try and save Brooke. Through the power of the watch, both girls end up in the present as sixteen-year olds, with more changes as a consequence. Rachel, Brooke, and Duncan face danger when the serial killer who tried to kill Brooke ten years ago has targeted her again in the present, along with Rachel. The girls must identify him before he succeeds with his deadly plans, even as they also grapple with any other possibilities the clockwatch may have in store for them in the passages of time. Christmas Wishes: Laura’s Story Laura Kettleton, three months shy of turning sixteen, lives in Cranbrook, Oregon. It's early December and she already has her Christmas wish list written down. These include wishing that Martin Walker would like her as

Eva Zimmermann is eight years old, and she has just discovered she is Jewish. Such is the life of an only child living in postwar Bucharest, a city that is changing in ever more frightening ways. Eva's family, full of eccentric and opinionated adults, will do absolutely anything to keep her safe—even if it means hiding her identity from her. With razor-sharp depictions of her animated relatives, Haya Leah Molnar's memoir of her childhood captures with touching precocity the very adult realities of living behind the iron curtain. Under a Red Sky is a 2011 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
The Year without a Purchase is the story of one family's quest to stop shopping and start connecting. Scott Dannemiller and his wife, Gabby, are former missionaries who served in Guatemala. Ten years removed from their vow of simple living, they found themselves on a never-ending treadmill of consumption where each purchase created a desire for more and never led to true satisfaction. The difference between needs and wants had grown very fuzzy, and making that distinction clear again would require drastic action: no nonessential purchases for a whole year. No clothes, no books, no new toys for the kids. If they couldn't eat it or use it up within a year (toilet paper and shampoo, for example), they wouldn't buy it. Filled with humorous wit, curious statistics, and poignant conclusions, the book examines modern America's spending habits and chronicles the highs and lows of dropping out of our consumer culture. As the family bypasses the checkout line to wrestle with the challenges of gift giving, child rearing, and keeping up with the Joneses, they discover important truths about human nature and the secret to finding true joy. The Year without a Purchase offers valuable food for thought for anyone who has ever wanted to reduce stress by shopping less and living more.
: A psychiatrist friend once told me that he could gain a good understanding of how people become the individuals they are merely by having them write down their ten earliest memories. And, if he could then get those same people to write down their top ten most important decisions they have made in their lives, he felt he could gain a keen insight into what decisions they might need to make in the future to change the course of their lives for the better. I set out to examine those very memories and decisions for myself in Bent Pages. From the time I was a child, one of my habits that drove others in my family crazy was to bend the corner of a page down on a book I was reading if it contained information I wanted to remember and look back on. It was easy to tell which books I had read and had been inspired by...there would be many bent corners. This book is a snapshot of the bent corners of pages in my life that have inspired and taught me. They are moments I never want to forget, even if painful. They have made me who I am. And I would not change that for the world! But looking back can be a risk. It can be painful. It can dredge up things that you never wanted to think about again. But change is a decision, and I desperately wanted to change and make decisions wisely, even if it meant examining parts of my history that were painful or blurry. To my delight many memories also brought laughter and a new sense of appreciation for the difficulties we all face when growing up. We start out as children with it being "all about me," and we view our microcosms only through those myopic, child-like eyes. Yet, as we grow and mature, we are often able to view those experiences and the people involved in a whole new light...sometimes even as unexpected blessings. God wired me specifically with certain talents, abilities, and personality traits when he knit me together in my mother's womb. I have purpose. I can make an impact. I long to fulfill my role in his plan for history.
Grandpas Code is a collection of essays from the perspective of a commonsensible contextualistsomeone who has found the Bible to be the most commonsense book ever written and one that is most effectively consumed and used when read in the context of its writers and the times and circumstances in which they lived, as well as the readers time and circumstances in which he or she lives. Labels such as liberal, conservative, or moderate turn author Bruce E. Bryce off. As Gods name, Yahweh, reflects His divine essenceI AM WHO I AMso too must every single one of His children stand on the ground of who they are. This book says that you should be yourself as you allow God to lead you to become. It is an alternative to the oft-established narrow lines of theological and religious beliefs and practices.
The Christmas season is a particularly difficult time for women to slow down and relish what's right in front of them. An annual marker for many, it is a holiday that can often remind us how life is not going as we'd planned. Our family relationships remain strained, our finances stretched, and our schedules stuffed with too much to do in too little time. Following the formula of her successful Loving My Actual Life, Alexandra Kuykendall shares with readers her own personal experiment to be completely present in her life as it is during the holiday season. Addressing the themes of Advent and Christmas, she reflects on hope, love, joy, peace, and relishing the season, with practical pullouts on common Christmas stressors, such as finances, schedules, and extended family. Kuykendall's signature candor helps women go easy on themselves, remember what truly matters, and find joy in their imperfect Christmases.
The year 1929 was devastating for America. It was the beginning of the Great Depression, which led to our country’s economic collapse. The author, also born in 1929, lived through those challenging Depression years, experiencing firsthand the many adaptations and sacrifices needed to survive those trying times. Now some eighty-eight years later, the author looks back to review those key principles that helped folks survive those challenging 1930s. Although the times we are living in today are radically different than in those Depression years, the author holds to the belief that if these same key principles are followed by America’s working class today, they will be more successful in meeting the challenge of our ever-changing, complex society. This book offers some suggested guides that should aid today’s workers in achieving increased financial independence by following these same key principles, with grandpa’s retirement rocking chair as the goal!

Israel Bodkin's journey began when he was a youngster and fled Lithuania just before the Nazis arrived. After fifty years in New York City he thinks he understands the boundaries of his life. But now his beloved wife is dead, and his family lives in Miami, a place Israel imagines as the New Babylon, a center of luxury, license, and wickedness. When his son insists he come to live with him, Israel reluctantly begins the next stage of his life's passage. He enters a world of bi-racial, tri-ethnic chaos he never bargained for. But all things are possible in the New Babylon. Israel discovers an unlikely new career as a radio talk show host and becomes a reluctant political activist. Interaction with a sometimes manic collection of new friends affirms what he already knows-that life is about making demands and fulfilling commitments. What you can't always predict are the consequences. Israel's story is as old as history and as new as today's headlines, and his adventures will move you to laughter and to tears.
Emmalea covers three generations of average Americans living with the day-to-day choices they have made. As you are aware, choices are categorized as either being good ones or poor ones. Most of our lives are made up of a good mix of both, and the characters in Emmalea are no different. When an unbalance occurs, often because a poor choice has been made, whether made by a person or by someone else affecting that person, God has his way of restoring balance...through hope, love, and always through a pathway of forgiveness. Statements like..."It's okay!" "Surprise!" "3,562," "Blue streaks!" "Y2K," "You're not the worst thing you've ever done!" "Rubik's Cube," "Love baked in a 325-degree oven," "Forgive," and "Denver sunsets" will all make sense to you as you read Emmalea TWICE LOVED.
The transformations undergone by Ireland in the last decades have relocated the country within that liminal space of the local and the global. The country of the deeply-rooted rural traditions, the severely religious impositions and the fragile economic system became in the 1990s a world referent due to its unprecedented and impressive growth. However, the emergence of the so-called Celtic Tiger and the recognition that Ireland had become one of the most globalised nations in the Western world met a dramatic downfall that has left the country (pre)occupied with matters concerning its re-positioning and re-definition within a wider European framework. The cultural and artistic productivity of this nation has also moved away from the topical insularity of the past, adopting more transnational and universal subjects, at the same time that it has struggled to retain its genuine values and its own signs of identity. For, in Ireland, the more this global progress has grown to be unavoidable, the more evocatively the local has befallen. Therefore, the editors of this volume contend that the global and the local should be understood not as opposed concepts but as two ends of a continuum of interaction. Within this state of affairs, this volume comprises a series of articles that revolve around the issue of glocality in Irish literature, culture and cinema in order to disentangle the complexities that underlie this concept and which are inextricably related to the drastic changes undertaken by Ireland in the years before and after the economic boom and posterior bailout.
Fishkill Carmel fends for herself, with her fists if need be — until a thwarted lunch theft introduces her to strange, sunny Duck-Duck, and a chance for a new start. Born in the backseat of a moving car, Carmel Fishkill was unceremoniously pushed into a world that refuses to offer her security, stability, love. At age thirteen-going-on-fifty, she begins to fight back. Carmel Fishkill becomes Fishkill Carmel, who deflects her tormenters with a strong left hook and conceals her secrets from teachers and social workers. But Fishkill’s fierce defenses falter once she meets eccentric optimist Duck-Duck Farina, and soon they, along with Duck-Duck’s mother, Molly, form a tentative family, even as Fishkill struggles to understand her place in it. This fragile new beginning is threatened by the reappearance of Fishkill’s unstable mother — and by unfathomable tragedy. Poet Ruth Lehrer’s young adult debut is a stunning, revelatory look at what defines and sustains “family.” And, just as it does for Fishkill, meeting Duck-Duck Farina and her mother will leave readers forever changed.
