The Ambrose Deception
Author: Emily Ecton
Publisher: Disney Electronic Content
Melissa is a nobody. Wilf is a slacker. Bondi is a show-off. At least that's what their middle school teachers think. To everyone's surprise, they are the three students chosen to compete for a ten thousand-dollar scholarship, solving clues that lead them to various locations around Chicago. At first the three contestants work independently, but it doesn't take long before each begins to wonder whether the competition is a sham. It's only by secretly joining forces and using their unique talents that the trio is able to uncover the truth behind the Ambrose Deception--a truth that involves a lot more than just a scholarship. With a narrative style as varied and intriguing as the mystery itself, this adventure involving clever clues, plenty of perks, and abhorrent adults is pure wish fulfillment.
At the start of 1991, eleven-year-old Ali Fadhil was consumed by his love for soccer, video games, and American television shows. Then, on January 17, Iraq’s dictator Saddam Hussein went to war with thirty-four nations lead by the United States. Over the next forty-three days, Ali and his family survived bombings, food shortages, and constant fear. Ali and his brothers played soccer on the abandoned streets of their Basra neighborhood, wondering when or if their medic father would return from the war front. Cinematic, accessible, and timely, this is the story of one ordinary kid’s view of life during war.
*ENHANCED EDITION* With playlists to Leonard Cohen’s and other artist’s recordings of each song in this collection, as well as an interactive timeline of his life; rediscover one of the UK’s most treasured songwriters. The enhanced The Lyrics of Leonard Cohen is a career-spanning collection, containing the lyrics of Suzanne, Hallelujah, So Long, Marianne, Everybody Knows, Famous Blue Raincoat and many more, including songs written but never recorded by Cohen himself. Blackly comic, tender, and polished until they shone like diamonds, Cohen’s lyrics were unmistakeable. Cohen was an accomplished novelist and poet before releasing his first album, Songs of Leonard Cohen. His music documented the tender yearnings and salved the heartbreaks of romantics around the world for six decades. The Lyrics of Leonard Cohen is an examination of the literary influence of the master wordsmith and a dazzling display of the work of one of our most passionate musical artists.
