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
Based on personal experience and interviews conducted with 60 other multiracial families, the author has combined anecdotal research with a strong knowledge of childhood and educational development philosophy to provide this useful guide for raising multiracial children in a color- and race-conscious world. The author believes that, although most three-year-olds are not racially aware, it is important to deflect insensitive comments from strangers about appearance. As a child grows older, this early dialogue should deepen, so that children will feel safe and comfortable discussing their racial identity with parents and be able to bring up any racially charged experiences that have occurred at school or with friends. Included are suggestions for the special problems that may arise during adolescence.
