Abstract
Maddie knows how to tell a story, "When I was just a baby, a ghost saved my life." That's what she tells people at the East Tennessee Children's Home because "it makes them think I'm somebody special, even if I don't look it." When a charismatic new girl appears at the home, Maddie is impressed. Murphy inspires Maddie and other kids to build a "fort" that serves as their retreat. There, the children fill scrapbooks with pictures of fantasy homes, tell stories, and daydream about their futures. Maddie relates some of their personal histories, but only learns the truth about Murphy after her mother takes her away. As the story ends, Maddie contemplates a major change in her own life. Imagination and stories are key survival tools for these emotionally vulnerable, but resourceful, foster kids. Maddie has a knack for close observation and ironic insight, yet the voice and views are consistently those of a perceptive 11-year-old.

Abstract
School is just like a film set: there's The Crew, who make things happen, The Extras who fill the empty desks, and The Movie Stars, whom everyone wants tagged in their Facebook photos. But Jude doesn't fit in. He's not part of The Crew because he isn't about to do anything unless it's court-appointed; he's not an Extra because nothing about him is anonymous; and he's not a Movie Star because even though everyone knows his name like an A-lister, he isn't invited to the cool parties. As the director calls action, Jude is the flamer that lights the set on fire.
Before everything turns to ashes from the resulting inferno, Jude drags his best friend Angela off the casting couch and into enough melodrama to incite the paparazzi, all while trying to fend off the haters and win the heart of his favourite co-star Luke Morris. It's a total train wreck!

Abstract
Children spend a lot of time debating with each other over what makes a boy a boy and a girl a girl. It's a time of choices. It's a time of creating themselves. It could be a time for blending and embracing the many ways they express themselves, but it is too often a time of narrowing the possibilities of who they can be. This book enters into this conversation and opens it up. It is the story of a child thinking through who she is, a child learning through her mother's love how to be both strong and soft.

Abstract
This updated edition of Joan Jacobs Brumberg's "Fasting Girls", gives a history of women's food-refusal dating back as far as the sixteenth century. The book tells of medieval martyrs who used starvation to show religious devotion, "wonders of science" whose families capitalized on their ability to survive on flower petals and air, and silent screen stars whose strict "slimming" regimens inspired a generation. It also looks at how the Industrial Revolution produced a disorder that continues to render women helpless. The book offers understanding to victims and their families, clinicians, and all women who are interested in the origins and future of this complex, modern and characteristically female disease.

Abstract
In French, this booklet is designed for girls who are starting their pubertal development at the early end of the normal range, about 8 years or so. The booklet describes the normal physical events of puberty, and it addresses the range of normal timing of puberty in girls. It discusses some reasons why some girls may start their puberty earlier than others, and it describes what might happen if a girl with early puberty visits a Pediatric Endocrinologist. Many practical pieces of advice and answers to commonly asked questions are also offered. The final page lists a few resource books on puberty which parents and girls may find helpful.
