CAROLINA CROW GIRL
By Valerie Hobbs
Valerie Hobbs is a well-respected author of numerous young adult novels. She is recognized for her ability to infuse her characters with remarkably authentic thoughts, motivations, and behaviors that realistically capture the life experiences of young people as they move from child to teen to young adult. Carolina Crow Girl is a splendid example of this ability, and explores the themes of culture and diversity, character, values and friendship with sensitivity and respect. Carolina is not looking forward to starting sixth grade at a new school and being the new girl again. This time, she decides she’ll say her father is an astronaut, lost in space. She’s learned to cope with the uncomfortable routine of standing in front of the class, introducing herself, and telling about her family by creating fantastical versions of a non-existent father. Anything’s better than telling the class she lives in an old yellow school bus with her single mother, Melanie, and baby sister, Trinity. And anyway, it won’t be long before Melanie has them on the move again, in her endless search for Trinity’s father, Red. But this time, things happen differently. Carolina takes on the care of a baby crow after finding it on the ground below its nest. And she meets Stefan Crouch, whose family owns the land on which Melanie has parked their bus. Carolina becomes fond of her new home, and as her friendship with Stefan grows, his family offers an alternative to moving on with her mother and sister. As she considers the family’s offer, Carolina must come to terms with her own beliefs about freedom, family and belonging.
Join us as we welcome author Marcia Strykowski and her new book "Amy's Choice."
We will be diving into Marcia's new young adult novel appropriately titled, "Amy's Choice."
Amy's Choice dives into the life of Amy Henderson and her cast of friends.
Amy's freshman year starts with a new best friend, Cat, and a newfound confidence. But she misses her crush, Craig, who has gone to live with his aunt in Boston. Craig has promised to write, and Amy checks the mail on a daily basis, but to no avail. There are plenty of distractions, however. Cat's brother, Ricky, seems interested in Amy, but is she interested in him? And a new friendship with Finn, the lighthouse keeper, who Amy discovers is a talented artist, keeps Amy and Cat busy as they arrange for him to exhibit his work. But things get complicated when Craig returns from Boston and Finn is accused of arson. There are more questions than answers for Amy as life becomes as turbulent as the cold and stormy ocean of her coastal Maine town.
Ideal for preteens, this novel is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Call Me Amy and touches upon issues of friendship, boyfriend troubles, and the power of believing in oneself.
Tune in as we dive into "Amy's Choice" by author Marcia Strykowski.
Stay tuned and keep it locked.
Imagine being in middle school, a 12 year old aspiring writer. You become brave and show your Librarian your very first full manuscript. The reaction you receive is less than supportive. Shandy Kurth was that 12 year old. I for one am thankful that she did not let this occurance stop her dreams from happening. We will touch base on how she overcame that hurdle and talk about her journey to publishing five books to date! We will discuss how this author finds time to be out in the work force, a wife, a mother and then finds the time to be an author as well.

If You Don't Have a Home-Based Business, Start One Today! by Sandy Botkin
The young and the middle-aged alike are realizing that their dream of "having a job with a company
forever" is an illusion. Companies have been downsizing, rightsizing, and capsizing for some time now,
and they continue to do so-more now than ever before. Even the federal and state governments are
getting into the act with layoffs and attrition of jobs.
Finally, if all this isn't bad enough, under recent tax laws employees are shafted more than ever with limits
and thresholds for their employee deductions and higher social security tax limits. This results in more
couples working than ever before and, on many occasions, working more than one job. It is now almost
impossible to have only one job in the family and make ends meet! Today, many households need three
incomes just to survive.
Why a Home-Based Business Makes So Much "Cents"
There are really two sets of tax laws in this country. One is for employees, and it allows deductions for
individual retirement accounts, 401(k)s (if you have one set up by your company), interest and property
taxes on your home (which some in Congress want to do away with ), and charity. Then there are the
laws for home-based business people who conduct their business either full-time or part-time. They can
deduct, with proper documentation ,their house, their spouse, and even children (by hiring them), their
business vacations, their cars, and their food with colleagues. It is for these reasons, according to
Entrepreneur magazine, that 95 percent of home-based businesses succeed in their first year and
achieve an average income of $50,250 per year with many earning much more.
