Summary

The Girl Who Could Rock the Moon inspires girls and boys of all ages to create an exciting new world through the exploration of STEM: science, technology, engineering and math. Mary G. Ross was a gifted mathematician and became the first female Native American engineer in the United States at a time when women in STEM were rare. She was brave, she was bold and she helped take us to the moon. Her equations solved in-flight problems for rockets and jets, and she wrote a traveler's manual to the planets. Much of her work remains classified to this day, but her inspiring story does not.
 
Does your little one like technology? Do they like to ask questions? Encourage them to see math as a game they’ll want to play with this bright, entertaining read.
 
The Girls Who Could is a fun, colorful series of stories about real women who have made a difference in the world through inspired action. By giving young girls and boys examples of women who are doing amazing things, children grow up with a template of achievement upon which to grow and expand their own dreams and goals. Simple drawings of children their own age and fun, rhyming prose helps kids connect easily with the message in each story.

    New York Times bestselling author Amy Ewing delivers a dark and riveting tale that "will have fans of Oliver’s Delirium, Cass’s The Selection, and DeStefano’s Wither breathless.”* 
    The Jewel has many meanings: wealth, beauty, royalty. But for Violet, the Jewel has always meant servitude. 
    Born and raised in the Marsh, Violet is destined for the Jewel. She is trained as a surrogate for the elite and is bought by the Duchess of the Lake at auction. And she quickly learns that beneath the Jewel’s glittering façade lies the cruelty, backstabbing, and hidden violence that have become the royal way of life. 
    Violet must accept the ugly realities of her life...all while fighting for her survival. But before she can accept her fate, Violet meets a handsome boy who is also under the Duchess’s control. A forbidden love sparks. 
    But their illicit affair has consequences, which will cost them both more than they bargained for. And toeing the line between being calculating and rebellious, Violet must decide what, and who, she is willing to risk for her own freedom.

    For Georgia, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Just when she thought she was the official one-and-only girlfriend of Masimo, he's walked off into the night with the full hump, leaving Georgia all aloney on her owney-again. All because Dave the Laugh tried to do fisticuffs at dawn with him! Two boys fighting over Georgia? It's almost as romantic as Romeo and Juliet . . . though perhaps a touch less tragic. It's time for Georgia to get to the bottom (oo-er) of this Dave the Laugh spontaneous puckering business once and for all. It's like they always say: If you snog a mate in the forest of red bottomosity and no one is around to see it, is he still a mate? Or is he something more?</p?
