    “Brimming with wit and heart . . . examines the myriad ways we define difference between ourselves and others and asks us to reexamine how we see belonging.” —Tara Sullivan, award-winning author of Treasure of the World 
     
    Before Stinkville, Alice didn’t think albinism—or the blindness that goes with it—was a big deal. Sure, she uses a magnifier to read books. And a cane keeps her from bruising her hips on tables. Putting on sunscreen and always wearing a hat are just part of life. But life has always been like this for Alice. Until Stinkville. 
     
    For the first time in her life, Alice feels different—like she’s at a disadvantage. Back in her old neighborhood in Seattle, everyone knew Alice, and Alice knew her way around. In Stinkville, Alice finds herself floundering—she can’t even get to the library on her own. But when her parents start looking into schools for the blind, Alice takes a stand. She’s going to show them—and herself—that blindness is just a part of who she is, not all that she can be. To prove it, Alice enters the Stinkville Success Stories essay contest. No one, not even her new friend Kerica, believes she can scout out her new town’s stories and write the essay by herself. The funny thing is, as Alice confronts her own blindness, everyone else seems to see her for the first time. 
     
    This is a stirring small-town story that explores many different issues—albinism, blindness, depression, dyslexia, growing old, and more—with a light touch and lots of heart. This edition includes a Q&A with the author and a sneak peek at the book’s sequel, A Blind Guide to Normal.

    But then a vicious horde of creepers attacks, delaying their escape. Soon the gang learns that there’s a new villain behind the attack: a griefer so twisted that he’d rather stay trapped in the Overworld than live a mundane life in the real world—and he has no qualms about keeping every other player trapped on the server with him.

    Wanting to be accepted by peers is a natural part of children’s social development. Yet kids can be overly influenced by what “friends” think of them or urge them to do. Through simple language and engaging illustrations, this book explains the concept of peer pressure. It encourages a solid sense of self-identity—or “elf-identity”—and teaches kids how to say “No.”

    Jungle Fighters - A Firsthand...

    One man’s account of his service in the U.S. Army under General MacArthur during the New Guinea campaign of World War II. 
     
    In the early stages of the Pacific War, General Douglas MacArthur was expected to prevent the Japanese from taking Australia. With limited forces, MacArthur had to be tactical, and the key to the continent’s defense was the island of New Guinea, just above the northeast tip of Australia. In order to defend New Guinea, MacArthur sent a small task force to Milne Bay, where the Coral Sea rounded the southeast tip of the island. His plan: to establish an airfield base for bomber and fighter planes that could attack enemy invasion convoys as they rounded the tip of New Guinea to attack Australia. 
     
    In the fall of 1941, at the age of twenty-six, Jules Archer joined the US Armed Forces. A few months later, he joined MacArthur as a member of the small task force being sent to New Guinea. 
     
    With good reason not to expect to return alive, Archer and his troop were plunged into a new kind of war. They fought in a jungle among a primitive Melanesian people, some tribes of which were headhunters. For nearly four years they endured in the distant jungle. This is an inside look at one of the lesser-known stories of one of the worst wars the world has known. It’s a story of the absurdities, fears, camaraderie, and even humor of life as a wartime solider. 
     
    “Archer has written a fascinating and action-packed account of New Guinea’s jungle warfare by drawing upon his own experiences as a master sergeant in a Signal Corps aircraft warning company and later as a transferee to the Air Corps and as a war correspondent. . . . This book is illustrated with an excellent selection of black-and-white photographs.” —School Library Journal, starred review
