There's nothing wrong with Wilma Sturtz. She's perfectly nice. But nobody cares about nice at Claverford, her middle school. Wilma is left out, forgotten, ignored -- until she meets an extraordinary old lady who grants a wish: for Wilma to be the most popular kid in school. Presto! Everything changes. Now Wilma has more best friends than she can keep track of and forty dates to the Graduation Night Dance; and someone is writing her love poetry. What more could she want? Nothing! But will it last? How can Wilma make sure she is never unpopular again? From Gail Carson Levine, author of the Newbery Honor book Ella Enchanted, this modern-day fairy tale shows a very real girl in a very unusual predicament, and along the way it reveals some painful truths about whether or not we really want to be liked for who we are.
All his life, Gabe Riley has heard about sightings of ghosts and swamp monsters at Blood Red Pond, but he knows the green, scaly creature that attacks Ray McPherson’s old Buick one night isn’t real. It’s just crazy Rosasharn, getting carried away with his leading role in the horror movie Gabe and his friend Bo are making for their Gifted and Talented project. But it’s not so easy to explain some of the other curious things that start happening in Gabe’s neighborhood. Why is his father more melancholy than usual? What secret is his younger brother, Ethan, hiding from him? Why are food and clothes disappearing from their home? And who or what is behind the strange lights in old Mr. Lindstrom’s supposedly empty farmhouse? Gabe is determined to find the answers to these questions. But Gabe discovers there are far deeper questions involved, and he will have to confront more than ghosts before he understands the significance of the mysterious events. With his trademark humor and flawless ear for the language and concerns of young adults, Daniel Hayes has created an unforgettable cast of characters in a story that is part comedy, part mystery, and part a thought-provoking exploration of friendship, family relationships, love, and death.

Years later, Detective Min—Hwani's father—learns that thirteen girls have recently disappeared from the same forest that nearly stole his daughters. He travels to their hometown on the island of Jeju to investigate... only to vanish as well. Determined to find her father and solve the case that tore their family apart, Hwani returns home to pick up the trail.

Book Steve Mcqueen in His Own Words Description/Summary:
The star of some of the most beloved films of Hollywood's golden age--including Bullitt, The Great Escape, and The Magnificent Seven--Steve McQueen's unflappably roguish persona earned him the nickname "The King of Cool" and the highest salary of any movie star of his time. Marshall Terrill's new book draws on more than five decades of media coverage, memorabilia, and research to serve up a slew of quotations straight from the mouth of the man himself. Steve McQueen in His Own Words lets us hear directly from this iconoclastic actor through a wide array of sources: interviews, published articles, personal letters and audiotapes, providing an intimate view of McQueen as an actor, filmmaker, racer, pilot, husband, and family man. Accompanying the hundreds of quotes are an equally impressive number of photos, illustrations, personal documents, and memorabilia, many of which are published here for the first time. Steve McQueen in His Own Words paints a portrait of a complex, contradictory man who managed to become one of the greatest icons in cinema history while never sacrificing the passions and beliefs that drove him.
