USA Today and New York Times bestselling author Nicole Williams delivers a seductive summer romance worth swooning over. Perfect for fans of Sarah Dessen and Stephanie Perkins. Phoenix can’t imagine anything worse than being shipped off to family summer camp. Her parents have been fighting for the past two years—do they seriously think being crammed in a cabin with Phoenix and her little brother, Harry, will make things better? On top of that, Phoenix is stuck training with Callum—the head counselor who is seriously cute but a complete know-it-all. His hot-cold attitude means he’s impossible to figure out—and even harder to rely on. But despite her better judgment, Phoenix is attracted to Callum. And he’s promising Phoenix a summer she’ll never forget. Can she trust him? Or is this just another lie? “What elevates this novel…is the witty and realistic dialogue and excellent character development.” –SLJ

Trusting What You Know School culture shapes and is shaped by the quality of relationships contained within its walls. But how do relationships among students and teachers affect student learning? Trusting What You Know shows that building genuine trustworthy relationships between teachers and students is pivotal in students' capacity to learn. Based on an extended research study by Miriam Raider-Roth--an educational researcher and former elementary school teacher--Trusting What You Know reveals what students think about their relationships in the classroom and how these relationships shape their ability to learn. The book includes guiding principles for teachers, researchers, educators, and parents who want to understand the ways that human relationships at school fundamentally influence what children learn, know, and trust. Trusting What You Know introduces us to a small group of sixth-grade students who reveal the complexity and power inherent in the relationships of school. While they talk about many school relationships, they focus mainly on their relationships with their teachers. In these conversations, they describe their keen capacity to see and name both their internal and psychological processes as well as the interpersonal complexities they experience in school. The book highlights four students--Jose, Maya, Sharon, Gabe--and their candid interviews reveal the issues central to building trustworthy relationships in school: connection, mutuality, confidence, and meaning-making. The students recount how they construct confidence in themselves, one another, and their teachers in order to support their process of knowing and explain how their everyday classroom interactions can support confidence and instill trust. The students also describe the forces and circumstances that can lead them to disconnect when they feel trust in themselves and others is at risk. This vital resource shows how important it is to pay attention to relationships in school because relationships form the very foundation of learning.

Pastor Joel Osteen asks everyone to examine what he or she really believes. Why is this important? Because we will become what we believe. Our beliefs will prove either a barrier or vehicle as we strive to go higher, rise above our obstacles, and to live in health, abundance, and victory. In YOUR BEST LIFE NOW Osteen says, 'I am what I am today because of what I believed about myself yesterday. And I will be tomorrow what I'm believing about myself right now. God sees us as more than conquerors, able to fulfill our destiny. We need to see ourselves through the eyes of our Creator.' He says that our self-image should mirror exactly what God says about us, not what we feel or think. And he encourages readers to be people of faith, for if you can see the invisible, God will do the impossible.

Though I don’t know where your fears started or how deep they sit in your soul, I do know this: Fear is a heavy burden. One of the heaviest you can carry. It’s exhausting and overwhelming. And it’s not from God. —Susie Davis, Unafraid In 1978 Susie Davis watched as a thirteen-year-old classmate entered her classroom and killed her teacher. As a witness to one of the earliest school shootings in our nation, Susie faced years of paralyzing fear and an intense distrust of God. But God relentlessly pursued her and, over time, broke Susie’s fear addiction. In Unafraid, Susie offers her hard-won insights about how we can trust God in the midst of our fears about violence, disease, and personal tragedy. With you, she asks, “How do we live unafraid? How do we remain aware of world events without giving in to fear? How do we make everyday choices to stop letting ‘What if?’ control us?” As Susie shows us, it is possible to break fear’s grasp on our lives. We can be aware of the terrible without forgetting the beautiful. We can look up with joy and realize the remarkable truth: Jesus wants to take our fear and give us, in its place, true peace. Walk this liberating journey with her and learn what it means to live unafraid.
