The Night Gardener follows two abandoned Irish siblings who travel to work as servants at a creepy, crumbling English manor house. But the house and its family are not quite what they seem. Soon the children are confronted by a mysterious spectre and an ancient curse that threatens their very lives.

Cali is a teen runaway on the streets of Venice Beach. He's got a pretty sweet life: a treehouse to sleep in, a gang of surf bros, a regular basketball game. What he doesn't have is a plan.

But the streets are filled with people who don't want to be found, and when he's hired to find a girl who would do anything to stay hidden, Cali must decide where his loyalties truly lie.

Description :

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.
