A Boston Globe Best Book of 2018 A Horn Book Best Book of 2018 “Vivid, hilarious, and heartbreaking.” —Elizabeth Wein, New York Times bestselling author of Code Name Verity “The best children’s book I’ve read this year.” —Katherine Rundell, Boston Globe–Horn Book Award–winning author of Cartwheeling in Thunderstorms “A near-miraculous balance of light and joyous touch with sometimes serious and even heartbreaking material.” —BCCB (starred review) From award-winning author Hilary McKay comes a “wholly satisfying” (Booklist, starred review) story full of wit, heartbreak, and hope as a girl fights for her independence during World War I. Clarry Penrose finds the good in everyone. Even in her father, who isn’t fond of children, and especially girls. He doesn’t worry about her education, because he knows she won’t need it. It’s the early twentieth century, and the only thing girls are expected to do is behave. But Clarry longs for a life of her own. She wants to dive off cliffs and go swimming with her brother Peter and cousin Rupert. And more than anything, she wants an education. She helps Peter with his homework all the time, so why can’t she manage it by herself? When war breaks out, Clarry is shocked to find that Rupert has enlisted. Then he is declared missing, and Clarry is devastated. Now she must take a momentous step into the wide world—for if she misses this chance, she may never make it. This is an inspirational, funny, and heartwarming story about a girl who dares to open doors that the world would rather keep closed.

You can muffle the drum, and you can loosen the strings of the lyre, but who shall command the skylark not to sing? Literature proves to be the symbolic and sound device from which quieted ideologies transcend the forever politically correct or culturally restricted societies of past and present. In Who Shall Command the Skylark Not to Sing? Dr. Adel Al-Atawneh sheds light on the oeuvres of two honorable writers, Adrienne Kennedy and Ghassan Kanafani, who depict and portray social diseases through celebrated works of literature of underdogs fighting for their place. While focusing on the struggles associated with the construction of an audacious personal identity, this comparative study of East and West is the great search for self. Al-Atawneh examines the politics of hatred, inequality, and denial that run parallel between two worlds different only in time and space. By formulating a connection between the quests for identity and self while looking for a place, he demonstrates the inseparability between the three social characteristics. Along the way, he abridges the widening gap between relations in the East and West. With intention of using the past to open understanding for the future, Dr. Al-Atawneh extends an invitation of hope for the national struggle so the question will never again have to be asked: Who Shall Command the Skylark Not to Sing?

When Ruth Conroy decides to sponsor a child in Africa, she is unprepared for the monthly monetary commitment and is shocked by how difficult it is to find £10 a month . . . In desperation, she enlists the help of her sisters – but Phoebe, Naomi and Rachel are only too eager to think up eccentric fundraising schemes, including wholly undisciplined and unsuitable baby-sitters, an unhygienic catering service and a fraudulent street artist. Whatever the scheme, their hilarious projects never fail to cause chaos and mayhem.
