Groundhog S Day Off from the Author: Robb Pearlman. Every year, people ask Groundhog the same, boring old question. Is spring around the corner? Or are we doomed to more winter? Sure, they care about his shadow, but what about him and his interests? He's had enough! Groundhog packs his bags and sets out for a much-needed vacation. Now the town is holding auditions to find someone to fill his spot. None of the animals seem right for the job, though. Not Elephant, not Ostrich, and most certainly not Puppy. No one has Groundhog's flair for the dramatic, but is it too late to woo him back into the spotlight? With a fresh take on a familiar event and bold, lively illustrations, this hilarious picture book will leave readers wishing it was Groundhog's Day year-round.

Attempted Poetry from the Author: Andrè M. Pietroschek. In my own prose I call it an ex-bum's desperate gambit. It is a collection of my newbie poetry, prosaic & personal, and whoever needs strict academic rules, or stylish finesse, shouldn't purchase it. Feelings, like living a life which didn't run the perfect way. Or remembering friends who died due alcoholism & drug abuse. The overwhelming rushes of emotion in attempts to go on with my life, and the insights which I could express in poetry. I blend nonfiction with the fiction which made me handle it, or to which real life inspired me. Rebuilding a life costs quite some money, and I restarted working instead of begging, as I am now an ex-bum once again. You don't need to read my ebook, just buying it already makes me dream of many 1-Star reviews. ;-) One serious note: The format issues are a technical problem. Selling enough copies can bypass that is what I was told. What is in it: Comments, training poems, my presented cinquain, my acrostic poetry, and some former contest poems. Micro-Poetry & Contextual Poems. Offering a preview: Poetry Prompted © Andrè M. Pietroschek, all rights reserved Poetry is the union of insight & wisdom or passion & thought which only the nemesis called critics may DISTORT

For fans of Louis Sachar and Jack Gantos, this funny and touching underdog story is a lovable and goofy adventure with robot fights, middle-school dances, live experiments, and statue-toppling pranks! When Donovan Curtis pulls a major prank at his middle school, he thinks he’s finally gone too far. But thanks to a mix-up by one of the administrators, instead of getting in trouble, Donovan is sent to the Academy of Scholastic Distinction, a special program for gifted and talented students. Although it wasn’t exactly what Donovan had intended, the ASD couldn’t be a more perfectly unexpected hideout for someone like him. But as the students and teachers of ASD grow to realize that Donovan may not be good at math or science (or just about anything), he shows that his gifts may be exactly what the ASD students never knew they needed.

Panic from the Author: Lauren Oliver. An utterly gripping thriller from bestselling author Lauren Oliver. Panic began as so many things do in Carp, a poor town of twelve thousand people in the middle of nowhere: because it was summer, and there was nothing else to do. Heather never thought she would compete in panic, a legendary game played by graduating seniors, where the stakes are high and the payoff is even higher. She'd never thought of herself as fearless, the kind of person who would fight to stand out. But when she finds something, and someone, to fight for, she will discover that she is braver than she ever thought. Dodge has never been afraid of panic. His secret will fuel him, and get him all the way through the game; he's sure of it. But what he doesn't know is that he's not the only one with a secret. Everyone has something to play for. For Heather and Dodge, the game will bring new alliances, unexpected revelations, and the possibility of first love for each of them-and the knowledge that sometimes the very things we fear are those we need the most. In this gritty, spellbinding novel, bestselling author Lauren Oliver delivers a gripping narrative of friendship, courage, survival, and hope.
