    WonderAugust (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial deformity that prevented him from going to a mainstream school—until now. He’s about to enter fifth grade at Beecher Prep, and if you’ve ever been the new kid, then you know how hard that can be. The thing is Auggie’s just an ordinary kid, with an extraordinary face. But can he convince his new classmates that he’s just like them, despite appearances?The Julian ChapterThe Julian Chapter gives readers a chance to hear from Wonder’s most controversial character. From the very first day Auggie and Julian met, it was clear they were never going to be friends. This story finally reveals the bully’s side of the story. Why is Julian so unkind to Auggie? And does he have a chance for redemption?PlutoPluto offers a peek at Auggie’s life before Wonder. Christopher and Auggie were best friends from the time they were babies until Christopher’s family moved away; he was there for all of Auggie’s earliest memories, from surgeries to Star Wars marathons. Pluto is the story of two boys who have grown apart but are learning that good friendships are worth a little extra effort.ShingalingShingaling shines new light on life as a fifth grader at Beecher Prep—as seen from the perspective of Charlotte, the girl chosen to be Auggie’s “welcome buddy.” Readers will learn more about Charlotte and her budding friendship with reader-favorite Summer, how the girls at Beecher Prep react to Auggie attending their school for the first time, and how Charlotte came to write the precept she used at the end of Wonder: “It’s not enough to be friendly. You have to be a friend.”

    Synopsis
    This is the story of how America awakened to its race problem, of how a nation that longed for unity after World War II came instead to see, hear, and learn about the shocking indignities of racial segregation in the South – and the brutality used to enforce it. It is the story of how the nation’s press, after decades of ignoring the problem, came to recognize the importance of the civil rights struggle and turn it into the most significant domestic news event of the twentieth century. Drawing on private correspondence, notes from secret meetings, unpublished articles, and interviews, veteran journalists Gene Roberts and Hank Klibanoff go behind the headlines and datelines to show how a dedicated cadre of newsmen – first black reporters, then liberal southern editors, then reporters and photographers from the national press and the broadcast media – revealed to a nation its most shameful shortcomings and propelled its citizens to act. We watch the black press move bravely into the front row of the confrontation, only to be attacked and kept away from the action. Following the Supreme Court’s 1954 decision striking down school segregation and the South’s mobilization against it, we see a growing number of white reporters venture South to cover the Emmett Till murder trial, the Montgomery bus boycott, and the integration of the University of Alabama. We witness some southern editors joining the call for massive resistance and working with segregationist organizations to thwart compliance. But we also see a handful of other southern editors write forcefully and daringly for obedience to federal mandates, signaling to the nation that moderate forces were prepared to push the region into the mainstream. The pace quickens in Little Rock, where reporters test the boundaries of journalistic integrity, then gain momentum as they cover shuttered schools in Virginia, sit-ins in North Carolina, mob-led riots in Mississippi, Freedom Ride buses being set afire, fire hoses and dogs in Birmingham, and long, tense marches through the rural South. For many journalists, the conditions they found, the fear they felt, and the violence they saw were transforming. Their growing disgust matched the mounting country-wide outrage as The New York Times, Newsweek, NBC News, and other major news organizations, many of them headed by southerners, turned a regional story into a national drama.

    Synopsis
    In 1099, when the first Frankish invaders arrived before the walls of Jerusalem, they had carved out a Christian European presence in the Islamic world that endured for centuries, bolstered by subsequent waves of new crusaders and pilgrims. The story of how this group of warriors, driven by faith, greed, and wanderlust, created new Christian-ruled states in parts of the Middle East is one of the best-known in history. Yet it offers not even half of the story, for it is based almost exclusively on Western sources and overlooks entirely the perspective of the crusaded. How did medieval Muslims perceive what happened? In The Race for Paradise, Paul M. Cobb offers a new history of the confrontations between Muslims and Franks we now call the 'Crusades,' one that emphasizes the diversity of Muslim experiences of the European holy war. There is more to the story than Jerusalem, the Templars, Saladin, and the Assassins. Cobb considers the Arab perspective on all shores of the Muslim Mediterranean, from Spain to Syria. In the process, he shows that this is not a straightforward story of warriors and kings clashing in the Holy Land, but a more complicated tale of border-crossers and turncoats; of embassies and merchants; of scholars and spies, all of them seeking to manage a new threat from the barbarian fringes of their ordered world. When seen from the perspective of medieval Muslims, the Crusades emerge as something altogether different from the high-flying rhetoric of the European chronicles: as a cultural encounter to ponder, a diplomatic chess-game to be mastered, a commercial opportunity to be seized, and as so often happened, a political challenge to be exploited by ambitious rulers making canny use of the language of jihad. The Race for Paradise fills a significant historical gap, considering in a new light the events that distinctively shaped Muslim experiences of Europeans until the close of the Middle Ages. The accompanying reference guide is included as a PDF on this disc.

When Governor Knowles realizes his daughter has vanished without a trace, he seeks Rachel’s help. The teenager’s disappearance represents every parent’s worst fear, and Rachel knows only too well what losing a daughter feels like. Her three-year-old, Mallory, went missing five years before Asylum Harbor. As she works with FBI special agent, Drake Reynolds, Rachel discovers an organized crime ring linked to the cruise line. The last person known to see Amber aboard the ship was an incognito DEA agent, who also has vanished. Where is he? And where is Amber? Finally, where is Mallory? In Burn Out, the second Rachel Scott Adventure, firefighter Lieutenant Samantha Collins vanishes while combating a warehouse blaze, leaving only her helmet behind. Sam’s mother seeks Florida Omni Search’s expert help, but Rachel can’t possibly anticipate how terrifying the Sam Collins case will be. Sam’s husband’s drug operation introduces perilous dimensions to the case. Has Sam been kidnapped? Has she fled amidst the criminal investigation? Rachel moves through the case methodically and uncovers clues that could reveal what happened to her own daughter. Through both adventures, suspense and action are at a premium.
