Original Title: Forever In Blue The Fourth Summer Of The Sisterhood

With unraveled embroidery and fraying hems, the Traveling Pants are back for one last, glorious summer. Lena: Immerses herself in her painting and an intoxicating summer fling, fearing that the moment she forgets about Kostos will be the moment she sees him again. Carmen: Falls under the spell of a sophisticated college friend for whom a theatrical role means everything and the heritage of the Pants means nothing. Bridget: Joins a dig for an ancient city on the coast of Turkey and discovers that her archaeology professor is available in every way except one. Tibby: Leaves behind someone she loves, wrongly believing he will stay where she has left him. Join Ann Brashares's beloved sisterhood once again in a dazzling, fearless novel. It's a summer that will forever change the lives of Lena, Carmen, Bee, and Tibby, here and now, past and future, together and apart. From the Hardcover edition.

The Noah Confessions by Barbara Hall


Original Title: The Noah Confessions

At the age of 16, it's standard procedure for every girl at Lynnie Russo's posh Los Angeles prep school to get a car. So on her 16th birthday, Lynnie is startled when she opens the small gift box from her father—it doesn't contain the shiny new set of keys she was expecting. Instead she finds a worn-out bird charm bracelet. What can he be thinking? When she cuts school to go try surfing so as to have a special day, instead of grounding her, her father hands her a manuscript box and says, "Your mother wanted you to have this when it seemed you were losing perspective. I think now's the time." Through "The Noah Confessions," Lynnie uncovers her family's secrets, loves, and tragedies, and comes to recognize that their past may not necessarily determine her future.

Young Adult Literature And Culture by Harry Edwin Eiss


Original Title: Young Adult Literature And Culture

This book offers a multifaceted approach to the world of young adults, everything from Ray Schrock's use of Walter Dean Myers' sports stories to discuss race relations and cultural politics to Joyce Litton's analysis of the highly popular Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants Quartet. The cover illustration is done by Joel Rudinger based on his experiences with the Inuit where he learned many of their legends and myths, resulting in his own excellent work on Sedna, the creation goddess, a story filled with deep tragedy, mystery and the world of the spirits. This mythic world slides into the discussion of Harry Eiss, one that focuses on The Isis Trilogy, best known of Monica Hughes many works, who writes, "Science fiction and fantasy in particular are valid carriers of myth for the 20th century, and most especially for young people." Margaret Best and Susann deVries also give us literature that uses science. They begin, "The science fair project is the central metaphor and the reality in Paul Zindel's The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds (1970), Christopher Paul Curtis's Bucking the Sarge (2004), and Joyce Maynard's The Cloud Chamber (2005). After providing an overview science fiction, Sally Sugarman offers a study of the entire genre. "For this study two hundred and thirty-nine high school students from two schools in Vermont and Massachusetts were surveyed." Alethea K. Helbig provides an overview of her important activities promoting literature for the young. She was a seminal scholar and educator when colleges and universities were just beginning to take the study of such literature seriously, when English departments were initiating serious undergraduate and graduate classes in what previously had been seen as inferior literature. Her life itself provides us with an entertaining and historically valuable autobiographical account of a person at the center of the change that has taken and continues to take place. Jerry Loving expands the horizons of the entire collection of essays, providing a firsthand account of how the young are educated in China, including a detailed history. It begins: "I have been traveling to mainland China at least 4 to 6 times a year as a teacher or education evaluator since 2002. As the visits and years passed, I watched the education system of China slowly improve to the level my schools were like when I went to school in the 50's and 60's
