The Mysterious Worlds of Jackson Nash is a young adult novel about 13-year-old Jackson´s journey to self-discovery. Jackson lives in the small town of Peach Grove, Georgia. He lived a somewhat normal life until the night of his 13th birthday. Ancient visitors reveal that he is of a special lineage, a descendant of an ageless African tribe, the Asutu. Once responsible for maintaining the balance between mankind and nature, the tribe is believed to be a myth. Jackson, however, is more than a descendant. He is the tribe´s Shuntah, nature´s protector. This discovery does not go without its difficulties. As Jackson develops special gifts, he begins feeling the tension of two worlds collide around and within him. An unexpected arrival from his aunt, Chrystal, helps him muddle through his dual identity. With the aid of fingerprints left behind by their ancestors, Chrystal uncovers their extraordinary family heritage.

52 Prepper´s Projects for Parents and Kids:A Project a Week to Help Prepare Your Child for the Unpredictable David Nash
Katie Nash - the beloved heroine of Elizabeth Berg´s previous novels Durable Goods and Joy School - is 13 years old in 1961, and she´s facing a summer full of conflict. Her father has enlisted her in two care-taking jobs - baby-sitting for the rambunctious Wexler boys and, equally challenging, looking after Mrs. Randolph, her elderly, bedridden neighbor. To make matters worse, Katie has been forcibly inducted into the ´´loser´´ Girl Scout troop, compliments of her only new friend Cynthia´s controlling mother. Her only saving grace is a trip to her childhood hometown in Texas, to visit her best friend Cherylanne. But people and places change - and Cherylanne is no exception. When an act of betrayal leaves Katie wondering just what friends are really for, she learns to rely on the only one left she can trust: Herself. Full of the joys, anguish, and innocence of American adolescence, True to Form is a story sure to make listeners remember and reflect on their own moments of discovery and self-definition. 1.

Talking with Kids: Everything You´ve Always Wanted to Know about Blindness: Brian Nash
The instant New York Times best seller featured on NPR´s Weekend Edition with Scott Simon! B. J. Novak (best-selling author of The Book with No Pictures) described this groundbreaking poetry collection as ´´smart and sweet, wild and wicked, brilliantly funny - it´s everything a book for kids should be´´. Meet Chris Harris, the 21st-century Shel Silverstein! Already lauded by critics as a worthy heir to such greats as Silverstein, Seuss, Nash, and Lear, Harris´ hilarious debut molds wit and wordplay, nonsense and oxymoron, and visual and verbal sleight of hand in masterful ways that make you look at the world in a whole new wonderfully upside-down way. With enthusiastic endorsements from best-selling luminaries such as Lemony Snicket, Judith Viorst, Andrea Beaty, and many others, this entirely unique collection offers a surprise around every corner: from the ongoing rivalry between the author and illustrator to the rhyming fact-checker who points out when ´´poetic license´´ gets out of hand. It´s a mischievous match made in heaven! ´´Ridiculous, nonsensical, peculiar, outrageous, possibly deranged - and utterly, totally, absolutely delicious. Read it! Immediately!´´ (Judith Viorst, best-selling author of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day) PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio. 1.

The fourth book in the number one New York Times best-selling Field Party series - a southern soap opera with football, cute boys, and pickup trucks - from USA Today best-selling author Abbi Glines. Tallulah Liddell had been defined by her appearance for as long as she could remember. Overweight and insecure, she preferred to fly under the radar, drawing as little attention to herself as possible, so no one can hurt her. The only boy who did seem to ever notice her was her longtime crush, Nash Lee. But when he laughs at a joke aimed at Tallulah the summer before their senior year, Tallulah’s love dissipates, and she becomes determined to lose weight, to no longer be an object of her classmates’ - and especially Nash’s - ridicule. Nash Lee has it all - he’s the star running back of Lawton’s football team, being scouted by Division I colleges, and on track to have a carefree senior year. But when an accident leaves him with a permanent limp, all of Nash’s present and future plans are destroyed, leaving him bitter, angry, and unrecognizable from the person he used to be. Facing a new school year with her new body, Tallulah is out to seek revenge on Nash’s cruelty. All does not go according to plan, though, and Tallulah and Nash unexpectedly find themselves falling for each other. But with all the pain resting in each of their hearts, can their love survive? 1.
