Ages 10 years & over. What thirteen year old boy wants to travel on a hopeless quest to India with his grandmother? Not Ben Leeson, whose anger about his father's recent death has led him to escape into the isolated world of computer games. India is the last place Ben ever thought of visiting and his grand-mother is the last person he had ever dreamed of travelling with, but the ticket is already bought and Ben finds himself in India on a search for Gran's long lost pen pal, Shansi. In the midst of insufferable heat, strange food and the constant haggling of street beggars, Ben and Gran meet magicians and snake charmers and see bodies burning on funeral pyres. As they search for clues across the huge continent, Ben finds himself strangely compelled to follow the magnificent elephants and the elephant boy-god Ganesh. The challenges of the journey teach Ben that real life can be more exciting than any computer game and that by accepting the dark mysteries of India, he can come to terms with his father's death. This adventure quest for children ten and up takes its place among the many captivating adult books about India, and is an invaluable resource for school curriculum studies on world religions.

"I'm not dead. I'm still me. I still have a body and everything."
"You are still you but you don't have a body. What you're seeing is a thought form." He points to a tall gold urn up by the minister. "Your body is in there. You were cremated."
Thunk thunk, thunk thunk. My heart pounds in my chest. Dread mushrooms in my stomach. Sweat beads on my forehead. "But everybody knows death is the end. That there's nothing left but matter."
"Death is only the beginning, Logan. Hannah knows that. Lots of people do."
Logan always takes the easy way out. After a night of drinking and driving he wakes up to find he has been involved in a senseless car accident and is dead. With the help of his guide, Wade, and the spirit of his grandmother, he realizes he has taken the wrong exit--he wasn't meant to die. His life had a purpose--to save his sister--but he took the easy way out and he failed. Now, before he can rest in peace, he has to try and save his sister from a future no child should face. He will only get one chance and he cannot afford to fail this time--for Amy's sake and for his own.
Laura Langston has written picturebooks and novels. She has always been fascinated with the concept of life after death and all things metaphysical. This is her first Orca Soundings. Laura lives in Victoria, British Columbia.

As bubbly as champagne and delectable as wedding cake, Once and for All, is set in the world of wedding planning, where crises are routine. Louna spends her summers helping brides plan their perfect day and handling every kind of crises: missing brides, scene-stealing bridesmaids and controlling grooms. Not surprising then, that she's deeply cynical about happy-ever-afters, especially since her own first love ended in tragedy. When handsome girl magnet Ambrose enters her life, Louna won't take him seriously. But Ambrose hates not getting what he wants and Louna is the girl he's been waiting for. Maybe it's not too late for a happy ending after all? 'When I read a Sarah Dessen novel, I'm sixteen again, in the flush of first love.' Jodi Picoult

Isabelle Day Refuses to Die of a Broken Heart (Paperback): Jane St. Anthony Isabelle Day Refuses to Die of a Broken Heart (Paperback)
Jane St. Anthony
R254 R232 Discovery Miles 2 320 Save R22 (9%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

In Milwaukee, Isabelle Day had a house. And she had a father. This year, on Halloween, she has half of a house in Minneapolis, a mother at least as sad as she is, and a loss that's too hard to think-let alone talk-about. It's the Midwest in the early 1960s, and dads just don't die . . . like that. Hovering over Isabelle's new world are the duplex's too-attentive landladies, Miss Flora ("a lovely dried flower"d) and her sister Miss Dora ("grim as roadkill"d), who dwell in a sea of memories and doilies; the gleefully demonic Sister Mary Mercy, who rules a school awash in cigarette smoke; and classmates steady Margaret and edgy Grace, who hold out some hope of friendship. As Isabelle's first tentative steps carry her through unfamiliar territory-classroom debacles and misadventures at home and beyond, time trapped in a storm-tossed cemetery and investigating an inhospitable hospital-she begins to discover that, when it comes to pain and loss, she might actually be in good company. In light of the elderly sisters' lives, Grace and Margaret's friendship, and her father's memory, she just might find the heart and humor to save herself. With characteristic sensitivity and wit, Jane St. Anthony reveals how a girl's life clouded with grief can also hold a world of promise.
