101 Ways to Contribute

101 Ways to Contribute, non-fiction by Nathan Youssef, free (any amount donation)

A great book written by a teen, for teens, based upon his own experiences and his more-than-two years of blog posts. This book compiles 101 ways kids and teens can give back to their communities, and is currently offered for free download on the website, The author is asking those who are able to give a $2 donation. All profits will go to the Elephant Nature Park, a home for rescued elephants in Northern Thailand. The book offers practical, helpful information for teens who want to get involved but don't know where to start. 

"I don't think kids realize how much we can do," says the author, Nathan Youssef, a 17-year-old high school senior from Durango, Colorado. "We can impact political campaigns. We can get issues into the media. We can influence environmental policy. We can draw attention to causes that matter. And most importantly, we can give our time and energy and help our neighbors. Huge donations get media attention, but writing to a soldier who is serving our country to sitting down to chat with someone of a different religious background matter. These things breed tolerance and help strengthen communities. We have the power to do that, and I wanted other kids to benefit from what I'd researched and learned."

Sweet Blood of Mine

From Mega Nerd to Super Stud.

Justin Case and women do not mix. Man boobs, a love of Kings and Castles, and being tight with the "nerd" crowd certainly don't win him any points either. After rescuing Katie, his crush, it turns out she might not be the girl he thought she was, while Elyssa, the school's Goth Girl, turns out to be more. Can high school get any more confusing? 

Determined to improve himself, he joins a gym and meets a sexy girl that just oozes a "come hither, Justin" vibe. Until she attacks him in the parking lot, and Justin realizes she's no ordinary girl but a being with supernatural speed and strength. After a narrow escape and an excruciating migraine headache, he wakes up with supernatural abilities all his own: speed, strength, and the ability to seduce every woman he sees. 

While that might sound like the perfect combo for any hormonal teen, Justin is a hopeless romantic who wants his first time to be special. Is that too much to ask for? But he doesn't know what he is or how to stop his carnal urges. One thing is clear: If he doesn't find answers there are other more sinister supernaturals who would like nothing better than to make him their eternal plaything and do far worse than kill him.

The Heliand Train

Heliand is a small city in the Commonwealth of Carolingia in the Inannan Empire, beloved by commuters and tourists wishing to escape the big city. It is connected to the nation’s sprawling capital, Gospel, by the fastest train on the Continent. Powered by steam and by magic, no one knows for sure how fast this train travels or who controls it, but it is part of the network of super-fast trains that keeps the Inannan Empire the most dominant in the region, firmly above the Sapphemus Consortium, its southern neighbor. 

Thirteen-year-old Jacklen Endervaar is a citizen of Carolingia and a resident of Heliand, but he spends most of his time on the train. He sells periodicals in three languages to commuters and foreigners alike, but his dream is to one day be the kind of engineer who operates the railway. 

Jacklen’s world is literally turned on its head when in an accident he falls under the wheels of a train. He’s seen other newsboys lose limbs and even their lives under the pounding wheels of the track, but by some miracle he escapes such a fate—but finds something quite unexpected that jars him from his comfortable dreams and sets him on a path quite different from the one he planned—one in which the world is far less clearly defined than Jacklen once thought, and one in which he must learn whom to trust before it’s too late.

Now Emma must go on the run with the help of a mysterious stranger, as they seek out how to free Emma from the curse of a Night Marcher, who will stop at nothing to get her soul.

In Part I of The Keepers of the Marigny-Faubourg, when Alene decides to spend her summer break in New Orleans working at a busy bar to overcome her broken heart, she never expects to meet a handsome, charming gentleman like Perrin Boudreaux.  Everything about Perrin is a mystery, from his old-fashioned clothes to the priceless coins he leaves as tip at the bar. But Alene’s never fallen in love like this before. Even though the further she digs into Perrin’s past, the more terrified she becomes, she can’t help but feel an undeniable connection to him and want to know more.  Evidence suggests that Perrin was a Civil War soldier who tried to stow away aboard a pirate ship that sank over a century ago, and neighborhood legend has it that souls lost in that historic shipwreck roam the Faubourg-Marigny District in search of young maidens, referred to as Keepers, to lure down to their watery graves. Could it be possible that Perrin’s a supernatural being, or is Alene losing her mind?
