    This book is not authorized or sponsored by Microsoft Corp., Mojang AB, Notch Development AB or Scholastic Inc., or any other person or entity owning or controlling rights in the Minecraft name, trademark, or copyrights.   A massive war in Minecraft's past will determine the fate of the present!  One hundred years in Minecraft’s past, foiled by a time-traveling Gameknight999, the evil virus Herobrine has gone mad with rage. Now determined to wipe every NPC alive off the server as punishment for meddling with his plans, he crafts a  new monster king to lead a devastating aerial assault.  Gameknight, his true identity still a secret, is stunned when a vicious ghast army, commanded by a terrifying monster that the User-that-is-not-a-user remembers all too well, arrives at the village he’s protecting and unleashes wave after wave of unthinkable terror.  With his army overpowered and outnumbered, Gameknight realizes they have no chance of defeating Herobrine and this new army out in the open Overworld. If he’s to save Minecraft from complete annihilation (which would destroy everyone  in the present day as well) he’ll need to turn the tables on his greatest nemesis. As the forces of darkness slowly close in around them, one question remains: Will he defeat this enemy before the future of Minecraft is changed forever?

    A ten-year-old girl learns the importance of family and community in this tale of love and hope set during the Hurricane Katrina disaster. 
     
    Armani Curtis can think about only one thing: her tenth birthday. All her friends are coming to her party, her mama is making a big cake, and she has a good feeling about a certain wrapped box. Turning ten is a big deal to Armani. It means she’s older, wiser, more responsible. But when Hurricane Katrina hits the Lower Nines of New Orleans, Armani realizes that being ten means being brave, watching loved ones die, and mustering all her strength to help her family weather the storm.  
     
    A powerful story of courage and survival, Upside Down in the Middle of Nowhere celebrates the miraculous power of hope and love in the face of the unthinkable. 
     
    Praise for Upside Down in the Middle of Nowhere 
     
    “Lamana goes for and achieves realism here, carefully establishing the characters and setting before describing in brutal detail, beyond what is typical in youth literature, the devastating effects of Katrina—loss of multiple family members, reports of attacks in the Superdome, bodies drifting in the current and less-than-ideal shelter conditions. An honest, bleak account of a national tragedy sure to inspire discussion and research.” —Kirkus Reviews 
     
    “I recommend the book because I think it does a good job of capturing what life was like in New Orleans both before and after Katrina and because Armani’s journey will give readers a lot to think about and discuss. But parents will want to know that it doesn’t flinch when describing the death and destruction that hit New Orleans during that time and be cautious with younger, sensitive readers.” —Cindy Hudson, author of Book by Book
