Not all victims were soldiers... Lieutenant Rebecca Phillips went to Vietnam as a nurse, to heal and give comfort, and maybe to find answers. The war had torn her family apart and she wanted to know why. But there were no answers for her in Vietnam -- only more questions.

When Rebecca returns to the U.­S., her war still isn't over. For only when she's home is she able to confront the horrific realities she experienced during her tour of duty. To piece her life back together, Rebecca travels across the country in search of hope, of forgiveness... of the way home. Named an ALA Best Book for Young Adults.

From Publishers Weekly *STARRED REVIEW*:
"Opening in an Army emergency room in Vietnam during the Tet Offensive, this novel gives readers an unforgettable glimpse of the everyday carnage of war... Inextricable from the story's anti-­war theme is its fiercely compassionate loyalty to the people who served in Vietnam.­"

Since arriving in Vietnam, the only things that have helped Lt. Rebecca Phillips have been her sense of humor and dedication to saving lives. When a Christmas Day medevac run goes awry, Rebecca must depend on her wits to survive in the jungle.

Michael, Snoopy, Sarge and the rest of the squad wouldn't have chosen to spend Christmas patrolling the jungles of Vietnam -- if they'd had the choice, that is. So what was an Army nurse doing wandering hurt and frightened in those same jungles? She wasn't supposed to be there -- not in the middle of a war. They certainly couldn't have imagined the harrowing story she had to tell.

Chivalry may be on life support, but its still breathing in the words of Arthur Conan Doyles The White Company. Although he is well known for his Sherlock Holmes stories, Doyle was most proud of creating the noble knight, Sir Nigel Loring of the White Company. This book is set in the tumultuous days of the 14th century, when the political struggles among England, France and Spain, and the Crusades in the Holy Land, created instablity for peasant and noble alike. There are many heroes in the tale of knights and battles, but young Alleyne Edricson is the main protagonist. Sheltered in an abbey, where the orphaned lad was educated per his noble fathers wishes, Alleyne is unwillingly shoved into the world for a period of a year, where he must decide whether he wishes to make his way there or return to a monastic life.
