Dreams of Gods & Monsters

In this thrilling conclusion to the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy, Karou is still not ready to forgive Akiva for killing the only family she's ever known.

When a brutal angel army trespasses into the human world, Karou and Akiva must ally their enemy armies against the threat--and against larger dangers that loom on the horizon. They begin to hope that it might forge a way forward for their people. And, perhaps, for themselves--maybe even toward love.

As the sweet Mary Ann Summers from Kansas in the hit series Gilligan’s Island, Dawn Wells created a beloved character that still connects with people 50 years later.

RED MADNESS How a Medical Mystery Changed What We Eat

One hundred years ago, a mysterious disease called pellagra spread across the American South. No one knew what caused it or how to treat it. Millions of men, women, and children were left weak, disfigured, insane and in some cases, dead. Many were also left to worry -- would they be pellagra's next victims?

Author Gail Jarrow closely tracks this devastating disease using vivid photographs and actual cases, and she reveals the story of the doctors, researchers, and public health officials who struggled to stop the epidemic. STARRED REVIEWS -- School Library Journal and Kirkus Reviews!

Branded by the Pink Triangle
Before the rise of the Nazi party, Germany, especially Berlin, was one of the most tolerant places for homosexuals in the world. But that all changed when the Nazis came to power. When the concentration camps were built, homosexuals were imprisoned along with Jews and the pink triangle sewn onto prison uniforms became the symbol of the persecution of homosexuals. A mix of historical research, first-person accounts and individual stories brings this time to life for young readers. Stories of bravery, friendship and the perseverance of the human spirit will educate and inspire.
