This map-tastic middle grade story from Andrew Clements gives the phrase "uncharted territory" a whole new meaning
Alton Barnes loves maps. He's loved them ever since he was little, and not just for the geography. Because maps contain more information than just locations, and that's why he likes to draw maps as well as read them. Regular "point A to point B" ones, sure, but also maps that explain a whole lot more--like what he "really "thinks about his friends. And teachers. Even the principal.
So when Alton's maps are stolen from his locker, there's serious trouble on the horizon...and he'll need some mad cartographic skills to escape it.
From "a genius of gentle, high-concept tales set in suburban middle schools" ("The New York Times"), this stand-alone story is off the charts.

Trish Marx; Illustrated by Dan Andreasen

I've been trying to help women have better lives, using the laws we already have. But what if the laws are wrong, or don't go far enough?"
So was the thinking of Jeannette Rankin before she decided to run for Congress, years before most women even had the right to vote.
Growing up a small-town girl in Montana, Jeannette showed courage and initiative, helping to run her family's ranch and daring to go to university at a time when most women did not even finish high school. She was bright and well-educated, but it wasn't until a visit to her brother in Boston -- where she glimpsed the harsh realities that women and children faced in the slums -- that she knew what she wanted to do with her life.
Immediately she got to work, helping in settlement houses and working with orphaned children, but Jeannette wanted to give women the power to better their own lives -- so she shifted her focus to suffrage and ran for Congress. On November 9, 1916, Jeannette Rankin became the first woman to win a seat in the House of Representatives. While in office, she continued her fight for women's rights and also bravely advocated for peace during World War I. Jeannette Rankin was a true pioneer in women's rights and an undeniable force behind the peace movement in America.
In this historical account, Marx's candid text and Andreasen's finely detailed illustrations work together to capture the strength and spirit of one of America's most inspirational leaders.
