He's a rescue, a mutt. Maybe there's a little golden retriever in him, although he's not exactly pretty. He's had a run-in with coyotes and he's missing an eye. But Mike is eleven-year-old Cara Donovan's dog, and they love each other absolutely. Usually her pet follows Cara everywhere, but on the day the family first smells smoke in the air, Mike becomes anxious. Pine Grove is in the path of a wildfire, and the family is ordered to evacuate. In the ensuing chaos, Mike runs off. And then the unthinkable happens; there is no time to search for Mike. They are forced to leave him behind. Shocked and devastated, Cara watches helplessly as the family drives through a nightmare, with burning debris falling from the sky and wild animals fleeing for their lives. Once in the city far from the burn zone, the Donovans are housed with a volunteer host family. Jewel, the hosts' daughter, is nice, but Cara can only think about what she may have lost. What will happen if nothing is left? But as she reflects on what "home" means to her, Cara knows only one thing. She is not going to lose Mike. She will do what it takes to find him, even if it means going back to Pine Grove on her own. With her signature style combining simplicity and lyricism, the author of Root Beer Candy and Other Miracles and Macy McMillan and the Rainbow Goddess tells an uplifting story of love and loss. And she shows how one girl’s stressful journey eventually leads her to an unexpected place, and a new definition of home.

He couldn't believe Mike was holding him like this, just holding him. Mike's arms

dark hair, like his master had ... Cory had always felt he was missing something.

Kirkus Reviews named Midnight, Kevin Egan's first diabolically twisty legal thriller, a "Best Book of 2013." Now Egan returns to the bench with The Missing Piece, an all-new tale of courtroom intrigue, legal maneuvers, deception, desperation...and cold-blooded murder. The Salvus Treasure is a fabulous hoard of ancient Roman silver, worth a total of seventy million dollars. Uncovered decades ago under disputed circumstances, the treasure has been claimed by various parties, some of whom will stop at nothing to secure full ownership of its riches. People have died—and killed—to possess all fourteen pieces of silver. The legal battle over who truly owns the treasure finally leads to the New York County Courthouse in Lower Manhattan. But as teams of high-priced lawyers wrangle over provenance and witnesses, a shocking act disrupts the trial...and a crucial piece of evidence goes missing. The missing piece is a silver urn worth at least five million dollars. Now the race is on to discover what became of the urn...before the Salvus Treasure claims more lives.

Comedy is how we cope with the absurdity of life. The person who cannot step back and see how ludicrous are most of the things we encounter in life is the person who gets mired and engulfed in them. Comedy lets us step back and see the whole picture. It reminds us of what is really important which certainly includes laughing and laughing often. These four comedies each take on several situations but exaggerate them until they become enlarged and laughable. To each are added an unusual use of standard theatrical tradition. A writer of one play becomes involved with his own characters. Another play actually moves backwards in time. Another comedy is actually two separate plays that come together while another claims to be a musical but has no singing whatsoever. Come along for the fun and laughter and lighten your burdens for a while.

Mike Rejest is a dedicated Special Agent for the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) out of Albuquerque, New Mexico. He is responsible for the Southwest region and has over 35 law enforcement officers reporting to him. Over the past year, however, he has detected an ominous trend developing. It appears as if an environmental terrorist may be operating from somewhere in the 4-state territory Rejest oversees. Cattle barons have been executed in the night, corporations suddenly destroyed by unexplained explosions, even the unsolved murder of several of his field operatives and government trappers. Throughout the West a terrible legend is being created-of a ghost rider on a silent horse, coming in the night to deliver swift and exacting punishment. His victims are from all walks of life, all ages, both sexes. So begins the struggle, between an agent of the law and a messenger of retribution. The action spreads through New Mexico, Colorado, Utah and Arizona, covering the last remaining wilderness areas of the Southwest. Battle-lines are drawn and friendships challenged, as the environment takes center stage before the public once again. Finally, frustrated by the failure of everyone else, Rejest gathers his own team of trusted fellow BLM Rangers. They set out to hunt down the stranger in the New Mexico wilds, only to discover that they are being pursued instead. The difference between predator and prey grows murky, only separated by the quickness of reflexes and the caliber of firearms.

Common stereotypes portray black fathers as being largely absent from their families. Yet while black fathers are less likely than white and Hispanic fathers to marry their child's mother, many continue to parent through cohabitation and visitation, providing caretaking, financial, and other in-kind support. This volume captures the meaning and practice of black fatherhood in its many manifestations, exploring two-parent families, cohabitation, single custodial fathering, stepfathering, noncustodial visitation, and parenting by extended family members and friends. Contributors examine ways that black men perceive and decipher their parenting responsibilities, paying careful attention to psychosocial, economic, and political factors that affect the ability to parent. Chapters compare the diversity of African American fatherhood with negative portrayals in politics, academia, and literature and, through qualitative analysis and original profiles, illustrate the struggle and intent of many black fathers to be responsible caregivers. This collection also includes interviews with daughters of absent fathers and concludes with the effects of certain policy decisions on responsible parenting.

John and Melissa Winters think that learning their baby’s sex will be the happiest day of their lives. They are wrong. Instead, they spend it running from an alien race hell-bent on claiming Earth for itself. With thousands of satellite-like weapons strategically positioned around the planet, the aliens obliterate the world’s communication systems, militaries, and transportation systems within minutes. There the satellites remain, monitoring Earth for any signs of human technology that could be used against them. Earth is plundered for its resources, and man is hunted by a species far more advanced, technologically, with speed and reflexes five times faster than any human and deadly tentacles that extend from their forearms at will. Lacking the means to fight back, man has but one option—run! John and Melissa journey to their mountain home, where they live out each day, hoping to see the next. Their plans are tested when an injured alien finds its way into their home and beats Melissa’s pregnant body within inches of death. The human population is dwindling and in time will become extinct, but there are some who refuse to let that happen. Some fight back against an opponent most feel they cannot beat in a battle they cannot win. But these freedom-fighters have one thing the others do not—they have Hope.

The second volume of writings by Los Angeles artist Mike Kelley, focusing on his own work. What John C. Welchman calls the "blazing network of focused conflations" from which Mike Kelley's styles are generated is on display in all its diversity in this second volume of the artist's writings. The first volume, Foul Perfection, contained thematic essays and writings about other artists; this collection concentrates on Kelley's own work, ranging from texts in "voices" that grew out of scripts for performance pieces to expository critical and autobiographical writings.Minor Histories organizes Kelley's writings into five sections. "Statements" consists of twenty pieces produced between 1984 and 2002 (most of which were written to accompany exhibitions), including "Ajax," which draws on Homer, Colgate- Palmolive, and Longinus to present its eponymous hero; "Some Aesthetic High Points," an exercise in autobiography that counters the standard artist bio included in catalogs and press releases; and a sequence of "creative writings" that use mass cultural tropes in concert with high art mannerisms--approximating in prose the visual styles that characterize Kelley's artwork. "Video Statements and Proposals" are introductions to videos made by Kelley and other artists, including Paul McCarthy and Bob Flanagan and Sheree Rose. "Image-Texts" offers writings that accompany or are part of artworks and installations. This section includes "A Stopgap Measure," Kelley's zestful millennial essay in social satire, and "Meet John Doe," a collage of appropriated texts. "Architecture" features an discussion of Kelley's Educational Complex (1995) and an interview in which he reflects on the role of architecture in his work. Finally, "Ufology" considers the aesthetics and sexuality of space as manifested by UFO sightings and abduction scenarios.
