Flashlight Night by Summary

NATIONAL BESTSELLER • In her first picture book, New York Times bestselling author and mother of three Elisabeth Hasselbeck reminds us that little hearts can be anxious too—and that God is always listening to their prayers. Flashlight Night is narrated by a boy whose parents have used chalkboard paint to create a wall where he and his siblings can write out all their fears, cares, and concerns: Will I learn to blow a bubble? Tie my shoes? Stay out of trouble? Be the friend they choose? The boy shares the wall with a friend, who records her own prayers. Later, they visit the chalkboard wall at dusk with a flashlight. The boy's mom shines the light on some prayers and turns it off at other times, pointing out that their prayers (and the children's faith) are still there, even in the dark, and that God hears every request. Mom says, "Sometimes we see God's yes, and other times we don't. But just because it hasn't happened, doesn't mean it won't. "Even when it's dark and dim and when we cannot see, let's choose to place our trust in God. He's close to you and me."

Point of View by Elisabeth Hasselbeck Summary

Recognized from her roles on Survivor, The View, and FOX & Friends, celebrity Elisabeth Hasselbeck presents a deeply intimate journey of faith, told through the important moments in her life. "Point of view," by definition, is a particular attitude or way of considering a matter. Through her nearly two decades of broadcasting, Elisabeth learned the necessity of extracting the point of view of the person being interviewed on a particular topic or subject or experience. Doing so allows you to see issues and truths through another's eyes. It requires a shift in perspective to see the story through their lens. In this illuminating book, Elisabeth walks through the times--from her national celebrity days to her newest role as CBO (Chief Breakfast Officer)--where she saw something differently than how God wanted her to, and the path back to His point of view was sometimes rocky but always revealing. Sometimes God's intentions for her were clear, yet other times she encountered situations so uncomfortable and blurry that she could only ask for His wisdom. In this book, Elisabeth welcomes you into the many different, and often divergent, points of view that she has witnessed and learned from along the way. It is a journey that brought her to the ultimate point of view that she discovered in the Word of God--that until she sees herself as He sees her, she is not seeing at all. As you read through the pages here, she invites you to make the same discovery for yourself.

Deliciously G-Free by Elisabeth Hasselbeck Summary

From the author of The G-Free Diet and the co-host of ABC’s The View comes a vital book about scrumptiously satisfying gluten free food—with easy-to-follow recipes, healthy tips, and photographs throughout—for families managing celiac disease as well as anyone who is concerned about their intake of wheat and other grains. Growing up in a family where everyone came together at the dinner table, Elizabeth Hasselbeck savored the signature meatball, lasagna, and ziti dishes of her grandmother and great-grandmother, and the pierogies of her father’s heritage. But a decade ago, the Emmy Award–winning co-host of The View, New York Times bestselling author, and mother of three was diagnosed with celiac disease, and the family recipes she grew up with suddenly became strictly off-limits. Or so she thought. Getting rid of gluten, however, doesn’t have to mean giving up taste. Deliciously G-Free combines Hasselbeck’s knowledge for healthy living and passion for tasty food to bring you 100 delectable, easy-to-make, and family-friendly gluten free recipes. By adding a variety of other ingredients to the fridge and pantry, she’s perfected scrumptious gluten free versions of old standards and new creations that would make her relatives proud, including • Breakfasts to Remember: Fried Egg Sandwich with Chipotle Mayo, Coconut Raspberry Muffins, French Toast with Caramel Rum Bananas, Blueberry Waffles, and Frittata • All-Star Appetizers: Pork Pot Stickers, Stuffed Mushrooms, Smoked Salmon on Corn Fritters, Crab Cakes with Homemade Tartar Sauce, and Hot Artichoke Dip • Mouthwatering Main Meals: Excellent Enchiladas with Quinoa Cornbread, Mac and Cheese, Lasagna, Veggie Pad Thai, Chimichurri Flank Steak and Grilled Asparagus, and Buttermilk Chicken • Deliciously Irresistible Desserts: Chocolate Devil’s Food Cupcakes, Blueberry-Raspberry Cobbler, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Tiramisu, Yellow Birthday Cake, and Double Chocolate Brownies Loaded with gorgeous photos, Deliciously G-Free also satisfies your taste buds with ideas for gourmet entertaining, kid-friendly concoctions, cool-weather comfort foods, and “Get Fit” gluten free recipes. Plus, Hasselbeck opens up about her own gluten free journey—from getting diagnosed to getting her family on board—and shares tips for how to stock your kitchen, prevent cross-contamination, and whip up gluten free flour mixes that literally take the cake. Looking great and feeling good from the inside out is just one Deliciously G-Free meal away! Praise for Deliciously G-Free “Fried chicken, brownies, sliders, even spaghetti and meatballs and mile-high lasagna all gluten free? My only complaint about Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s Deliciously G-Free is that I didn’t write it myself. She problem-solves in the tastiest of ways with the most requested recipes of our time—gluten free. Nicely done, blondie!”—Rachael Ray “Deliciously G-Free gives you world-class advice on gluten from a world expert on her body. Elisabeth Hasselbeck offers elegant, passionate, and tasty advice everyone will adore.”—Mehmet Oz, M.D. “Deliciously G-Free eschews fancy, restaurant-level recipes and acknowledges instead the need for straightforward food for busy people, lovingly prepared.”—The Oregonian

Saving the White Lions by Linda Tucker Summary

In this captivating, suspenseful memoir, white lion conservationist Linda Tucker describes her perilous struggle to protect the sacred white lion from the merciless and mafia-like trophy-hunting industry, armed only with her indomitable spirit and total devotion. Her story begins in 1991 with a heart-stopping misadventure in the Timbavati Reserve of South Africa. Tucker—then a successful advertising executive—and a group of fellow travelers found themselves surrounded by a pride of angry lions. There was no way out, night had fallen, and the battery in their only flashlight was beginning to flicker. Miraculously, a local medicine woman, with two youngsters in tow, passed, trancelike and fearless, through the lions and escorted them all to safety. For Tucker, that life-threatening experience became a life-changing one. She abandoned her career, left Europe, and returned to Timbavati to track down the medicine woman who had saved her: Maria Khosa. Upon seeing Tucker again, Khosa only smiled and said, “What took you so long?” She had been expecting her, and there was so much to do. Under Khosa’s shamanic tutelage, Tucker learned of her sacred destiny: to be the “keeper of the white lions,” believed to be angelic beings sent to Earth to save humanity at a time of crisis. Khosa also prophesized that the queen of the white lions—the embodiment of the mother of Ra, the sun god—would soon be born, on a day and in a place considered holy by Westerners. On December 25, 2000, in the little South Africa town of Bethlehem, a snowy white lion cub, Marah, was born. From the moment of her first meeting with Marah, Tucker’s story immediately takes off into battle, as she dedicates her every waking moment to prying Marah and her siblings from the grips of the trophy-hunting industry. Compellingly written in the intimate style of a journal, Tucker describes with unflinching honesty her fears, doubts, hopes, and dreams, all the while unfolding for us an unforgettable tale of adventure, romance, spirituality, and most of all, justice.

Donalyn Miller says she has yet to meet a child she couldn't turn into a reader. No matter how far behind Miller's students might be when they reach her 6th grade classroom, they end up reading an average of 40 to 50 books a year. Miller's unconventional approach dispenses with drills and worksheets that make reading a chore. Instead, she helps students navigate the world of literature and gives them time to read books they pick out themselves. Her love of books and teaching is both infectious and inspiring. The book includes a dynamite list of recommended "kid lit" that helps parents and teachers find the books that students really like to read.

Forged by Fire by Sharon M. Draper Summary

The flame of love burns bright in the second book of Sharon M. Draper’s award-winning Hazelwood High trilogy. When Gerald was a child he was fascinated by fire. But fire is dangerous and powerful, and tragedy strikes. His substance-addicted mother is taken from him. Then he loses the loving generosity of a favorite aunt, and a brutal stepfather with a flaming temper and an evil secret makes his life miserable. The one bright light in Gerald's life is his little half sister, Angel, whom he struggles to protect from her father, who is abusing her. Somehow Gerald manages to finds success as a member of the Hazelwood Tigers basketball team, and Angel develops her talents as a dancer, despite the trouble that still haunts them. And Gerald learns, painfully, that young friends can die and old enemies must be faced. In the end he must stand up to his stepfather alone in a blazing confrontation. In this second book of the Hazelwood High trilogy, Sharon M. Draper has woven characters and events from Tears of a Tiger in an unflinchingly realistic portrayal of poverty and child abuse. It is an inspiring story of a young man who rises above the tragic circumstances of his life by drawing on the love and strength of family and friends.

Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning Summary

'My philosophy is pretty simple: any day nobody's trying to kill me is a good day in my book. I haven't had many good days lately.' MacKayla Lane's life is good. She has great friends, a decent job, and a car that only breaks down every other week or so. In other words, she's your perfectly ordinary twenty-first-century woman.

When her sister is murdered, leaving a single clue to her death - a cryptic message on Mac's cell phone - Mac journeys to Ireland in search of answers. The quest to find her sister's killer draws her into a shadowy realm where nothing is as it seems, where good and evil wear the same treacherously seductive mask. She is soon faced with an even greater challenge: staying alive long enough to learn how to handle a power she had no idea she possessed - a gift that allows her to see beyond the world of man, into the dangerous realm of the Fae ...

Wonder by R. J. Palacio Summary

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Millions of people have fallen in love with Auggie Pullman, an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face—who shows us that kindness brings us together no matter how far apart we are. Read the book that inspired the Choose Kind movement, a major motion picture, and the critically acclaimed graphic novel White Bird. And don't miss R.J. Palacio's highly anticipated new novel, Pony, available now! I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse. August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. Beginning from Auggie’s point of view and expanding to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others, the perspectives converge to form a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance. In a world where bullying among young people is an epidemic, this is a refreshing new narrative full of heart and hope. R.J. Palacio has called her debut novel “a meditation on kindness” —indeed, every reader will come away with a greater appreciation for the simple courage of friendship. Auggie is a hero to root for, a diamond in the rough who proves that you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.

Boys Without Names by Kashmira Sheth Summary

For eleven-year-old Gopal and his family, life in their rural Indian village is over: We stay, we starve, his baba has warned. With the darkness of night as cover, they flee to the big city of Mumbai in hopes of finding work and a brighter future. Gopal is eager to help support his struggling family until school starts, so when a stranger approaches him with the promise of a factory job, he jumps at the offer. But Gopal has been deceived. There is no factory, just a small, stuffy sweatshop where he and five other boys are forced to make beaded frames for no money and little food. The boys are forbidden to talk or even to call one another by their real names. In this atmosphere of distrust and isolation, locked in a rundown building in an unknown part of the city, Gopal despairs of ever seeing his family again. But late one night, when Gopal decides to share kahanis, or stories, he realizes that storytelling might be the boys' key to holding on to their sense of self and their hope for any kind of future. If he can make them feel more like brothers than enemies, their lives will be more bearable in the shop—and they might even find a way to escape.

Point of View by Elisabeth Hasselbeck Summary

Recognized from her roles on Survivor, The View, and FOX & Friends, celebrity Elisabeth Hasselbeck presents a deeply intimate journey of faith, told through the important moments in her life. "Point of view," by definition, is a particular attitude or way of considering a matter. Through her nearly two decades of broadcasting, Elisabeth learned the necessity of extracting the point of view of the person being interviewed on a particular topic or subject or experience. Doing so allows you to see issues and truths through another's eyes. It requires a shift in perspective to see the story through their lens. In this illuminating book, Elisabeth walks through the times--from her national celebrity days to her newest role as CBO (Chief Breakfast Officer)--where she saw something differently than how God wanted her to, and the path back to His point of view was sometimes rocky but always revealing. Sometimes God's intentions for her were clear, yet other times she encountered situations so uncomfortable and blurry that she could only ask for His wisdom. In this book, Elisabeth welcomes you into the many different, and often divergent, points of view that she has witnessed and learned from along the way. It is a journey that brought her to the ultimate point of view that she discovered in the Word of God--that until she sees herself as He sees her, she is not seeing at all. As you read through the pages here, she invites you to make the same discovery for yourself.

A prequel to the Zak Bates Eco-Adventure series Ra-Kit claims to be the last living magic cat. But where did Ra-Kit's magic come from? Is she really five hundred years old or is that just part of the mythology she's woven for herself? What did Ra-Kit have to do to be initiated into the secret clan of magic cats? Dominion Over All When the last living magic cat and her flying canine companion show up on your doorstep, you don't expect things to get any stranger!

In Beijing's back-alley curio shops, the prices are great...but what's the cost? The answer will change Nia's world. Along with the Eco-team, her journey will shed light on the darkest facets of humankind...but, even poachers have families to feed, and no solution is simple.

Junkyard Dogs by W. Bradford Swift Summary

As a teenage zoo owner and the head of an eco-team that's been tasked to overcome global warming and protect endangered species, Zak Bates is as busy as ever. Despite much help from a truly stellar multi-species coterie, his life, in a word, is wild, and it seems that things are about to get hairier. When the eco-team receives word from the Council of Animals of the Spiritual Frontier about a curious disturbance amongst New York's animal population, it soon becomes clear that something truly sinister is afoot—or apaw—and, worse, the plague is prodigious. Across the city, scores of store owners, led by real estate mogul, Stanford Ivory, have started using and abusing junkyard dogs as living burglar alarms and stray cats as mousers. Having been abandoned at birth, Faith Bandara is particularly sensitive to such abuse. She resolves to use her empathic abilities to save these sentient beings from a life of servitude. Faith and her street-smart friend, Midge Meadows, join the eco-team to do just that, but will it be enough to turn the tide against such ruthless forces? As Zak and his team begin to dig deeper, they find that the truth is worse than expected. Yes, someone must save these animals by bringing the syndicate's crimes to a stop. The only question that now remains is where exactly to start. With Vol. IV of the thought-provoking Zak Bates Eco-adventure series, we're shown again: a heartfelt message can only enhance a thrilling expedition.

Centaurus and the Southern Cross by Marius Taciuc Summary

In this book, the reader is transported to many locations in Papua New Guinea while savoring the author’s true stories and identifying with his experiences. From West Sepik to Madang, from the mountain heights of the Highlands to the Bismarck Sea-washed shores, the reader has the opportunity to resonate with the cultural context of the Asia-Pacific region. These people groups, nearly forgotten by the western world, live in the characteristic “endless cycle” style of the past. In their animistic worldview, the people of this area hold the belief that nothing changes. According to indigenous culture, the human spirit continuously transforms into other forms of life after it ceases to exist as a human. So, ancestors still exist and will always exist in the form of spirits in the universe that surrounds us. For that reason, time does not exist, so history is not worth record­ing: what is now was also in the past, and what will come tomorrow is a rebirth of the past and of those from the past in another form. How then does a young country (established in 1975) reconcile the modern age with indigenous traditions? How does an animistic society embrace new Christian teachings in the midst of naturalistic-evolutionistic times? Centaurus and the Southern Cross attempts to bring to the forefront a rediscovery of the reasons why there is value in using every available technology to advance the Good News here at the ends of the earth. Although this book’s stories are not arranged chronologically, they share a common theme of indigenous customs, and the way they impact societal behaviors in this region. This is what gives the book its continuity. I would not have been able to present certain aspects of the way the Word of God works in a people rooted and still tied to animistic practices if I had not chosen to examine these issues first. I found that the best way to transport the reader into this world of 839 tribes was by describing particular revealing events first. This book introduces the goals which make it worth investing in these people through any means possible and with every talent God has given us.
