Ashanti Saga: The Fort
The riveting story of the Ashanti's fateful, final uprising of 1900 is the backdrop to Alice O'Grady's stirring tale of colliding cultures and clashing emotions, of oppression and discrimination, desire and brutality.-Harm de Blij, Professor of Geography and co-founder of the African Studies Center, Michigan State University Alice O'Grady portrays with great sensitivity the arrogance of the British, the ambiguity of colonial black-white relations, the tribal divisions, and the struggle to oust the overlords.-Syd Goldsmith, author of "Jade Phoenix" In this captivating historical novel set in the Ashanti Confederacy at the dawn of the 20th century, Alice O'Grady keeps readers intensely engaged in the socio-political life that characterized Ashanti resistance to British colonial rule. Being Ghanaian-born, I found this novel not only impressive in its plot and literary style, but also very informative and authentic in its historical context. Filled with drama, romance, and conflict, "Ashanti Saga: The Fort" will be well-received by adolescent and young adult readers across the world.-Isaac Odame, MB ChB, FRCPath, FRCPC, The Hospital for Sick Children, University of Toronto, Canada

Clean Clothes for Bobby Bear
Two young bears wander off in the woods to play, but while they are out, they are supposed to keep their clothes clean. (It's their mom's only rule.) The younger of the two, Bobby, just can't seem to follow that rule though, and his older sister Becky is worried they will be in trouble. So, the two set off to find a place for Bobby to clean up. It just so happens that a young boy lives on the other side of the woods, and he's happy to help the bears, once he gets over his shock of two talking bears, in exchange for their friendship. Things are never simple with Bobby Bear though, and things go awry when he hits the bathtub. The faucet breaks, he uses a whole bottle of bubble bath, he baths his new friend's goldfish as a way of saying thank you, and a million other things go wrong. When the boy's parents come in, will they understand? Or will Bobby's new friend be in just as much trouble as he is?

Fashioned by Faith
Everyone knows that we live in a "skin-is-in" society, heavily driven by media and immodesty. So how does a young Christian woman reconcile a fashionable wardrobe with maintaining her integrity? Written by international professional model Rachel Lee Carter, "Fashioned by Faith" offers a cutting-edge approach to the concept of beauty with a Biblical foundation that will attract moms and daughters alike. Readers will love hearing about Carter's exciting story as she leads them on an engaging study that touches on a huge felt need for young women: real beauty has nothing to do with looks. Offering three valuable perspectives--teen boys, a professional model, and God's Word--Carter explains her standards of modesty in a way that will make readers acquire a specific understanding of the author's wardrobe choices and the impact those choices can make on others. Readers will also learn to season their self-image with daily quiet time with God. A tour of Scripture will reveal the value of heart issues like modesty and why they're important to God. Never compromising her sense of style or her faith, every young lady can discover what it means to be "Fashioned by Faith." Moms and girls will love this book!
