When Katie Brashers announces to her friends that she is going to Florida for Spring Break, nobody thinks twice. But when class resumes and Katie isn’t in attendance, classmate Michelle Martin grows suspicious. Not only was she hoping to hear about Florida, Michelle let Katie borrow a family heirloom that wasn’t returned.

Dodging her demanding mother, Michelle, her best friend Tami, and Katie’s boyfriend Brad, who is brokenhearted over Katie’s sudden departure, form their own investigation. They talk to residents in the neighborhood and look inside Katie’s house, but nothing out of the ordinary is found.

About to give up, Michelle takes her dog on his daily walk and uncovers a clue that throws her into circumstances beyond her control. Before long, she could end up like Katie…gone without a trace.

Featured Book - Attack of the Chicken Nugget Man:  A National Test Prep Adventure by Kumar Sathy


This laugh-out-loud children's book is aligned with the new Common Core State Standards. It covers 2nd - 5th grade English Language Arts and Mathematics. Attack of the Chicken Nugget Man: A National Test Prep Adventure is a hilarious story that teaches and references curriculum concepts that students in all states need to learn! This breakthrough educational book tells the story of a struggling third-grader (Chris Robb) who desperately wants to pass a standardized test. Chris's school is a crazy place and his teacher has the strangest name he has ever heard: Ms. Bubblebrain. Every character in the book has a unique personality trait. Smelly Sam stuffs random objects up his nose (sushi, socks, etc), the bus driver waves around his stinky shoe to get the kids to settle down, and the principal harbors an incomprehensible infatuation with strawberry milk. Meanwhile, rumor has it that a mysterious Chicken Nugget Man has been sneaking into schools and causing all kinds of chaos. A task force is created to capture the Chicken Nugget Man. The country's smartest children will be chosen to join the effort because for some reason, no adult has ever seen the Chicken Nugget Man. Chris, who can barely remember his teacher's name, has the odds stacked against him when it comes to passing the big test, but as the reader discovers, he might have a little help, and a little hope, after all.The book has built-in Bloom's Taxonomy critical thinking comprehension questions and silly versions of standardized test prep questions that are written in kid-friendly language. Open-ended questions, creative writing prompts, and drawing activities are included for all kinds of learners. A strong emphasis is placed on character education and every time a character makes a poor choice, the narrator reminds readers of the consequences, encouraging them to suggest more responsible choices.

This delightful work of humorous fiction makes learning fun and helps students in all states prepare for standardized tests. It's great for fourth and fifth grade remediation, gifted second graders, after school tutoring, read-aloud, literature circles, family reading nights, and guided reading.

Featured Book - Infinite Exposure by Roland Hughes


This is a story about how the off-shoring of IT jobs and data centers leads to the largest terrorist strike the world has ever seen and ultimately
nuclear war before the end of 2012.






Featured Book - Palestine by Jonathan Bloomfield

palestine.jpgWatching the world events unfold, listening to the pundits speak, as Iran sets to turn its nuclear reactors on, we all sit and wait for what we see as the inevitable war in the Middle East.

This book depicts the possible next war with Israel, but reveals a heart for the people on all sides. It is a must read for anyone wanting to know, wanting to believe and wanting to hope. Jonathan Bloomfield captures the events as if they actually unfold, with an uncanny sense of real events, both that happened and will be happening.

Yet, the author, speaking through his everyday characters immersed in daily routines in Israel and the Palestinian lands, finds the a solution that can only be the real path to a permanent peace.
