Jack's summer has hit a dead end . . . After being 'grounded for life', Jack is facing a summer of doing nothing. But who's got time to die of boredom when there are so many more interesting ways to die in this town? He might crash in his dad's homemade plane, or catch the disease that makes you dance yourself to death, or fall foul of the motorcycle gang that wants to burn the town to the ground. Old people seem to be dying faster than Miss Volker can write their obituaries, and Jack is starting to worry that it might not just be the rats that are eating the rat poison . . . Dead End in Norvelt is Jack Gantos's hilarious blend of the entirely true and the wildly fictional, from one of the most darkly amusing imaginations writing today.

In Julies Klasse ist ein Neuer: Dschingis, ein Flüchtlingskind aus der Mongolei, und Julie soll sich ein bisschen um ihn kümmern. Dschingis hat schließlich keine Ahnung, wie man Fußball spielt, was man zum Schwimmen mitnimmt und dass man nicht den ganzen Tag in einem Fellmantel herumläuft. Im Gegenzug weiß Julie bald alles über die Mongolei, dass dort Riesenblumenbäume wachsen, dass man Adlern dort eine Mütze aufsetzt, um sie zu beruhigen und wie warm ein Fellmantel ist. Und sie lernt, wie man einen Dämon aus Hefeteig backt. Doch dann, eines nachts, werden Dschingis und seine Familie abgeholt. Sie dürfen nicht in Liverpool bleiben, sondern müssen zurück in die Mongolei ...

Als Nicholas' Mutter stirbt, muss er von einem Tag auf den anderen ins Heim. Dort herrschen Disziplin, Unterdrückung und brutale Gewalt. Doch noch schlimmer als die prügelnden Lehrer ist der Heimleiter Mr Creal, der den Jugendlichen mit großer Freundlichkeit begegnet - um sie dann zu missbrauchen. Mit allem Stolz und aller Selbstachtung, die Nicholas noch hat, wagt er die Flucht aus dem Heim. Schonungslos, doch mit großem Einfühlungsvermögen und ohne jeglichen Voyeurismus beschreibt Melvin Burgess, wie Nicholas es schließlich trotz allem in ein normales Leben zurück schafft - und wie für viele Leidensgenossen auch Jahre später die Spirale der Gewalt kein Ende findet.

From the Newbery Medal–winning author of Dead End in Norvelt, the uproarious final volume of Jack Henry stories According to his new motto—A WRITER'S JOB IS TO TURN HIS WORST EXPERIENCES INTO MONEY—Jack Gantos's alter ego Jack Henry is going to be filty rich even before he gets out of junior high, for his life is filled with the worst experiences imaginable. For instance, in the course of the few months covered in this closing cycle of interlinked stories, Jack is humiliated by a gorgeous syncronized swimmer, gets a tattoo the size of an ant on his big toe, flubs an IQ test and nearly fails wood shop, and has to dig up his dead dog not once but twice. And that's not the half of it! At the close of this final book of semi-autobiographical stories, Jack may not end up rolling in dough, but he will prove once again "a survivor, an ‘everyboy' whose world may be wacko but whose heart and spirit are eminently sane" (School Library Journal). This title has Common Core connections.

Eine hinreißende Geschichte über Pflanzen, Liebe und die Wissenschaft Hope Jahren hat das, wovon viele Menschen träumen: einen Beruf, der ihr Herz und ihr Leben erfüllt. Seit sie denken kann, ist die Geo-Biologin fasziniert von der Natur – von Pflanzen, Bäumen, Blättern, Samenkörnern und den unglaublichen Geschichten, die sie uns erzählen, sogar noch in fossiler Form. Wie ist es beispielsweise möglich, dass ein Kirschkern hundert Jahre lang geduldig warten kann, bis er sich auf einmal dazu entscheidet zu keimen? Hope Jahrens Werdegang von der kindlichen Forscherin zur angesehenen Wissenschaftlerin, die sich trotz zahlreicher Hindernisse in einer Männerwelt behauptet, ist eine inspirierende und mitreißende Geschichte voller Leidenschaft, Durchhaltevermögen und ewiger Neugierde. Ein wunderbares Gleichnis über die Kraft der Natur und die Freude des Entdeckens, das einen ganz neuen Blick auf die Pflanzenwelt eröffnet. Seite für Seite. Blatt für Blatt. Für die New York Times ist Hope Jahrens »Blattgeflüster« eines der 100 besten Bücher des Jahres 2016.
