Among the elite recruits Ender proves himself to be a genius among geniuses. In simulated war games he excels. But is the pressure and loneliness taking its toll on Ender? Simulations are one thing. How will Ender perform in real combat conditions? After all, Battleschool is just a game. Right? Redwall – Brian Jaques When the peaceful life of ancient Redwall Abbey is shattered by the arrival of the evil rat Cluny and his villainous hordes, Matthias, a young mouse, determines to find the legendary sword of Martin the Warrior which, he is convinced, will help Redwall's inhabitants destroy the enemy. Classics Treasure Island – Robert Louis Stevenson Set sail to the heart of adventure with cabin boy, Jim Hawkins, aboard the legendary scoundrel, Captain Long John Silver. A secret treasure map becomes the key to heart-pounding thrills, danger and swashbuckling action as a boy faces the high seas and the grandest pirate of all in the adventure of a life time. Swiss Family Robinson – Jahann David Wyss From these dire opening lines, a delightful story of adventure begins. One family will emerge alive from this terrible storm: the Robinsons—a Swiss pastor, his wife, and four sons, plus two dogs and a shipload of livestock, hens, pigeons, and geese! Inspired by Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, this heartwarming tale portrays a family's struggle to create a new life for themselves on a strange and fantastic tropical island. There each boy must learn to control his own nature— such as Ernest's bookishness and Fritz's hot temper—as their adventures lead to amazing discoveries, danger, and tantalizing surprises, including a puzzling message tied to an albatross's leg. The authenticity of the boys' behavior, the ingenuity of the family, and the natural wonders of this exotic land have made The Swiss Family Robinson, first published in 1812-1813, one of the world's best-loved and most enduring stories of shipwreck and survival. The Greatest: Muhammad Ali – Walter Dean Myers Non-Fiction Every school child should be required to read this outstanding biography from award-winning writer Walter Dean Myers. Ali's accomplishments, both in and out of the ring, present him as a motivated man of principal, willing to take risks to achieve his goals. Myers carefully crafts Ali's tale from his Clay family roots in Louisville, Kentucky, to his struggles today with Parkinson Disease. Myers weaves the events of Ali's personal life with those occurring in our country during the twentieth century, thus providing a look at both Ali and his importance to history. Delving into the civil rights movement, the Nation of Islam, conscientious objector status during the Vietnam War, and the dangers of professional boxing, Myers presents a man of courage and inspiration. Black-and-white photographs, interspersed throughout the text, bring "The Greatest," his life and importance in history to a new generation of readers. 5

Longitude – Dava Sobel Anyone alive in the eighteenth century would have known that "the longitude problem" was the thorniest scientific dilemma of the day -- and had been for centuries. Lacking the ability to measure their longitude, sailors throughout the great ages of exploration had been literally lost at sea as soon as they lost sight of land. Thousands of lives, and the increasing fortunes of nations, hung on a resolution. Longitude is the dramatic human story of an epic scientific quest, and Harrison's forty-year obsession with building his perfect time keeper, known today as the chronometer. Full of heroism and chicanery, brilliance and the absurd, it is also a fascinating brief history of astronomy, navigation, and clockmaking. Through Dava Sobel's consummate skill, Longitude will open a new window on our world for all who read. Historical Fiction Shabanu: Daughter of the Wind – Suzanne Fisher Staples NEWBERY AWARD WINNER Westerners might consider this beautiful story to be a fairytale. Shabanu, a thirteen-year-old Pakistani nomad, is midwife to camel birth, repairs saddles, is promised in marriage to a much older man and goes to the camel fair with her father. Through his experience as a UPI correspondent in Pakistan, Staples shares his insight into Shabanu’s culture, religion, language and lifestyle. The narrator does a flawless job and even imparts a subtle lesson in the nomad’s language. Men, women and children and a wide range of emotions are effectively rendered. Though intended for a young audience, Shabanu introduces a culture unknown to those of all ages. Gone with the Wind – Margaret Mitchell Gone with the Wind, an American Novel by Margaret Mitchell, was published in 1936 and won the Pulitzer Prize in 1937. It was the only book that Margaret Mitchell published in her lifetime, but it became one of the best selling American novels of the 20th century. Mitchell's work relates the story of a rebellious Georgia Southern belle named Scarlett O’Hara and her experiences with friends, family, lovers, and enemies in the South during the antebellum period, the American Civil War and the Reconstruction era. The Shakespeare Stealer by Gary Blackwood Young Widge was raised in an orphanage. He is apprenticed to an unprincipled clergyman who trains Widge to use a cryptic writing system that he's invented to pirate sermons from other rectors. Hired by a mysterious traveler, the boy is hauled off to London to attend performances of Hamlet in order to transcribe the script for another theater company. Naturally, all does not go smoothly, and in the course of trying to recover his stolen notebook, Widge goes to work at the Globe, eventually donning a dress and wig to play Ophelia before the queen. The true identity of the mysterious traveler provides a neat twist at the end. It's a formula with endless appeal. Not only must Widge survive physically, but he must also find his own ethical path having had no role models. 6
