When Doctor Altman taught his twelve-year-old daughter Mary about medicine, Abraham Lincoln, and freedom, he never imagined all three would soon be illegal, but living in Nazi Germany brought many unexpected changes to their lives. Doctor Altman is being forced to comply with the wishes of Hitler's closest officers, the Black Coats, and Mary soon discovers she must keep her opinions of freedom secret or she'll put her family's lives in danger. Their only hope is that the Allies win the Battle of Berlin and Hitler surrenders. After the war, Mary's family escapes to America, but once she gets there, Mary unwittingly becomes mixed up with the wrong people, endangering her family's American dreams. With the help of Raphael, an immigrant teen, and his father, who have a surprising connection to Mary's German childhood, Mary quickly learns that freedom doesn't mean doing whatever you want. Filled with life lessons, a little romance, and plenty of humor and set against the historical backdrop of World War II, One Girl's Dream for Freedom is an engaging and exciting story of the difficult teenage years that readers of any age will enjoy. Ms. Adams' storytelling is terrific. Her unique use of the language had us so thoroughly enjoying the dark drama, surprising twists, and deep convictions of the characters that we are considering promoting it as a film in and of itself in the future. —Ted Rosegen, executive producer, Treasure Island Pictures Anyone with an appreciation of history and questions about how kids got through such turmoil from Nazis and WWII will enjoy One Girl's Dream for Freedom. —Forbes Book Club

Come meet Erin. Like you, she has struggled with many questions about being a girl. Why does it matter that God created men and women? Why did God make guys and girls so different?

After all, God is the one who made her and the only One who can really answer her questions.

Catherine Aimes has been writing popular orthodontic fiction for years, but “Brooke in Braces: A Very Personal History of One Girl's Life and Times and Experiences with Braces” is her first novel written specially for kids and teens who are facing or have braces.

Five-year-old Cally waits in her pretty pink bedroom for the sound of the front door opening and her mother’s sweet voice in the hall. But when the doorbell finally rings, and Cally creeps out of bed to peer through the banister, a large man in uniform is all she sees. Her mother is missing... Teacher Annabel Braddock was last seen drinking at the local pub with her best friend, Jennifer. Witnesses saw tears running down her cheeks, and friends say she was having problems with a colleague at work, and that her marriage had broken down. But as the two women hugged goodbye, neither noticed the car speeding towards them. As the dust settled, Jennifer lay unconscious on the ground and Annabel was nowhere to be seen. She’d never abandon her little girl, so did someone snatch her? As family crowd around Jennifer’s hospital bed, hoping she’ll wake up, police visit Annabel’s home and her inconsolable daughter, Cally, tells them she had seen a man outside staring into her room as she climbed into bed that evening. Was it her childish imagination, or had someone been watching Annabel’s home? When Jennifer finally opens her eyes and tells the police what happened that night, it’s clear there are plenty of people with a reason to harm Annabel. With an unpredictable husband, a colleague who denies harassing her and a neighbour who seems to know her every move, could she be in imminent danger? As the hours turn to days, will little Cally ever see her precious mother again? Or will she be next?
