When eight year-old Leo Jansen watches Meg Kenton move in across the street, he has no idea the bossy girl will become his best friend. She is pink and sunshine and boldness, and while Leo’s family falls apart, her world is his sanctuary. Then she leaves for two years that becomes four, and Leo’s life goes to pieces. After Meg returns, lonely and doubting her worth, she looks for the boy who used to be her friend. She finds a young man she doesn’t recognize, a mean, rough troublemaker who can't stand her. Yet she’s drawn to him, and she asks God to help her reach the old Leo she used to know. She’s certain he’s still in there somewhere. But Leo is guarding dangerous secrets, and should Meg get too close, she'll figure them out. If he doesn’t do something to get rid of her, the last strands of his existence will come apart. And yet he wants to be the boy she’s looking for, not the monster he needs her to see. With the help of the garden and Meg’s parents, who understand all too well the hardships of growing up, maybe Meg can save Leo’s life, and he can turn around and rescue her heart. The Lion and the Ladybug is part of the Terry’s Garden series, tales about a love that touches generations and a garden where God heals broken hearts.

Floppy Lop-Ears is different from all of the other kids. He dresses differently. He acts differently. Other kids tease him because he is different. Mommy and Daddy Lop-Ears take him to visit a special doctor who doesnt give shots! Dr. Coon explains that Floppy has autism spectrum disorder, and he is not like the other kids because his brain works differently. Dr. Coon explains some of the difficulties that those on the spectrum have in everyday situations, such as struggling with conversations and acting in ways that others consider weird. He also emphasizes the many positive aspects of having such a unique brain. Floppy is glad to be special, until he realizes that the other kids still tease him for being different. Suddenly, he decides that he must do whatever he can to get off the spectrum. This is the story of a young bunny who knows that he is not like everyone else and tries to make himself better in ways that only the pure innocence and vivid imagination of a young bunny (or child) can create. During his journey, he discovers that sometimes being different is the only way to really find acceptance. The Parents Pages provide additional information about ASD from the authors truly unique perspective.

“Fans of Sarah Dessen and Mary Kay Andrews will enjoy this grown-up Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, a story of risk, reward, loss, and love” (Booklist). A Publishers Weekly Pick of the Week and a New York Post Required Reading Pick It all starts when four unsuspecting women, on a singles’ bike trip through Normandy, discover a mysterious red book about love. But did they discover it—or did the book bring them together? Somehow the possibly magical Love Book will insinuate itself into Emily’s, Beatrice’s, Max’s, and Cathy’s lives, which so far haven’t turned out exactly the way society, their families, or they themselves have planned. Along the way, they’ll be nudged, cajoled, inspired—perhaps even “guided”—in spite of themselves to discover love, fulfillment, and the true nature of being a soul mate. “The Love Book should come with a warning: Do not begin unless you can afford to finish it—today. I could not, and did not, put it down. A contemporary Jane Austen, Nina Solomon has written a smart and funny book about what it’s like to be a woman, no longer young but not yet old and still single, looking for love in all the wrong places, only to find life. I laughed out loud so often I was downright downcast when I reached the last page and had to give up the good company of these wonderful characters.” —Beverly Donofrio, author of Astonished: A Story of Healing and Finding Grace “Happy endings abound in this novel about the power of love and friendship.” —Kirkus Reviews “A compelling mix of story lines . . . Plenty of good banter and characterization.” —Publishers Weekly
