Ahead of Her Time - An SAT Vocabulary Novel

Summary

Action, adventure, romance, ancient Egypt — what more could a person ask for?
 
How about 500+ vocabulary words to painlessly prepare you for the SAT & ACT?
 
Ahead of Her Time was written, first and foremost, to be wildly entertaining. The book centers around Noor Cunningham, a headstrong teen whose parents disappeared after discovering Cleopatra's palace at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea.
 
When an overlooked clue indicates her parents might still be alive, Noor travels to the edge of time to get them back. On the journey, she's thrown in Cleopatra's dungeons, wooed by a handsome Roman soldier, and forced to use every ounce of her (not inconsiderable) wits to survive.
 
Studying for the SAT or ACT doesn't have to be so hard. 
 
Our brains are biologically wired to learn through stories. The problem is, the vocabulary in most of the stories we read stagnates before we're done learning all the "big" words.
 
That's where Ahead of Her Time comes in. Kicking mountains of flashcards and tedious 900-page study guides to the curb, the novel spins a compelling story and inserts 500+ words into your brain before you even know what's happened.

    “Entertaining, informative, thought-provoking, mysterious, poetic. Men who read it will surely learn much about themselves, and women—particularly those who are unfortunately misled into thinking of men as “the enemy”—will find it a real eye-opener.”—Ruth Tiffany Barnhouse, M.D., Th.M., Harvard University 
    Robert A. Johnson's classic work exploring the differences between man and woman, female and male—newly reissued. 
    What does it really mean to be a man? What are some of the landmarks along the road to mature masculinity? And what of the feminine components of a man's personality?  
    Women do not really know as much about men as they think they do. They have developed, over the centuries, considerable expertise in the technique of adapting to men, but that is not the same as truly understanding them. Women often labor under the delusion that life is really pretty easy for men, at least when compared to their own lot, and they have no idea what a complicated struggle is really involved in the transition from male childhood to real manhood. 
    As timely today as when it was first published, He provides a fascinating look into male identity and how female dynamics influence men.

    In Architects of Ruin, New York Times bestselling author and conservative historian Peter Schweizer argues that the economic crisis was caused by liberals who used the power of government to create a subprime mortgage bubble that has ravaged the global economy. Rebutting charges that the financial collapse was caused by conservative deregulatory zeal, Schweizer, the author of Do as I Say (Not as I Do): Profiles in Liberal Hypocrisy, shows that it was actually the result of “do-good capitalism.”

    Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends by Peter Schweizer | Conversation Starters
    
    The #1 New York Times bestselling book Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends is about how corruption has been more prevalent in America than ever before. The author Peter Schweizer has been in the war against corruption for many years, and he has many triumphs. In his new book Secret Empires, he tells why the American bank that opened in China was prohibited by United States laws from hiring some family members of the top politicians in China. In contrast, the Chinese bank that opened in America has the freedom to hire whomever it wants. Schweizer also discussed how the media only focused on President Donald Trump's children and their shady transactions while barely questioning the suspicious deals made by the those who are close to Joe Biden, Mitch McConnell, John Kerry, and former President Barack Obama. In different parts of the world, the children of influential and powerful political figures venture in businesses and gain high profits. They may not be good at business, but people want to gain favor from their powerful parents. This phenomenon is relatively new in the United States. However, the relatives of well-known political families may already be dealing with hundreds of millions of dollars. Peter Schweizer's book Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends is deeply researched and filled with astounding revelations. It identifies the public servants who are not worthy of the trust of the American people. This book provides the path towards a more accountable and transparent government.

    Can't Hurt Me: Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds by David Goggins | Conversation Starters
    
    David Goggin's childhood was a nightmare and was thus destined for failure. Battling against the odds, he transformed himself into the person he wanted to be through self-discipline, hard work, and mental toughness. He went on to become one of the world's most outstanding endurance athletes, a Navy SEAL, and a U.S. Armed Forces icon.  He is "The Fittest (Real) Man in America" according to Outside magazine. Most people achieve just 40 percent of their potential. To tap into the remaining 60 percent, mental discipline, fortitude, and sacrifice have to be used, he says.
    Can't Hurt Me offers powerful lessons for people who want to set and achieve their goals,  according to Men's Health Magazine.

Ten years later, new questions and answers surfaced in dozens of interviews, 6,000 pages of trial transcripts and previously unrevealed records such as:Ryan's first written statement about Sarah's deathattorneys' notes and trial-preparation documentsRyan's personal journal, notes and correspondencemore than a thousand pages of police records 
    SUBMERGED will draw you into the depths of a stranger-than-fiction story that you will ponder long after turning the final page.
