More and more, Ramona finds herself cutting class to go to the stream, where she finds love and acceptance among her newfound friends who are always there when she needs them. They journey to many places and meet many different animals as Oliver shrinks Ramona to miniature size during their playtime. Back at home and at school, everything seems to be going wrong for Ramona. Oliver, woven into the curls behind Ramona’s ear, tags along with her during her schooldays and whispers advice to her from his hiding spot on how to treat others, deal with bullies, and forgive and show compassion to others. He also stresses to her the importance of heeding her grandmother’s advice. “We should find what makes us happy, and then use it to do something good and lasting for the world,” Oliver advises her. Ramona finds herself taking self-defense classes from an ant sergeant and singing lessons from a ladybug choir. Accepted among her miniature friends and no longer a lonely outcast, Ramona exhibits great courage and strength in the face of danger from snakes and large birds who seek to harm her and her friends. Ramona is invincible as her friends give her the confidence to face her fears and discover her true talents. Ramona begins to go to church to learn from the choir. The sermons inspire her to be kinder to others, especially the children at school who treated her badly. Ramona begins to be noticed by teachers and some classmates, finally in a positive way. She even befriends another girl at her school and introduces her to Oliver and the others. Ramona finds that she’s gifted in many things. But the greatest gift of all, she finds, is the unconditional love of a true friend. This delightfully spun tale will touch your heart, and it will certainly make you think twice before smashing that spider on the wall!

When G. Willow Wilson—already an accomplished writer on modern religion and the Middle East at just twenty-seven—leaves her atheist parents in Denver to study at Boston University, she enrolls in an Islamic Studies course that leads to her shocking conversion to Islam and sends her on a fated journey across continents and into an uncertain future. She settles in Cairo where she teaches English and submerges herself in a culture based on her adopted religion. And then she meets Omar, a passionate young man with a mild resentment of the Western influences in his homeland. They fall in love, entering into a daring relationship that calls into question the very nature of family, belief, and tradition.

Download and read online Anybody Shining in PDF and EPUB Can one mistake destroy the chance of a lifetime? A girl discovers there are many ways of being true in this magnificent ode to handwritten letters and the shining power of friendship from the author of Dovey Coe, set in the Appalachian mountains of 1920s North Carolina. One true friend. Someone shining. That’s all twelve-year-old Arie Mae wants. But shining true friends are hard to come by deep in the mountains of western North Carolina, so she sets her sights on a cousin unseen, someone who lives all the way away in the big city of Raleigh, North Carolina. Three unanswered letters later, Arie Mae learns that a group of kids from Baltimore are coming to spend a summer on the mountain. Arie Mae loves her smudge of a town—she knows there’s nothing finer than Pa’s fiddling and Mama’s apple cake, but she also knows Big City folk might feel differently. How else to explain the song catcher ladies who have descended upon the village in search of “traditional tunes” and their intention to help “save” the townspeople? But when the group from Baltimore arrives, it seems there just might be a gem among them, one shining boy who doesn’t seem to notice Arie Mae wears the same dress every day and prefers to go barefoot. So what if he has a bit of a limp and a rumored heart problem—he also is keen about everything Arie Mae is keen about, and has all the makings of a true friend. And so what if the boy’s mother warns him not to exert himself? He and Arie Mae have adventures to go on! In between writing letters to her cousin, Arie Mae leads her one shining friend on ghost hunts and bear chases. But it turns out those warnings were for a reason… “Arie Mae’s openheartedness and yearning for connection make for a deeply poignant story, one with a richly realized setting and cast. As Arie Mae begins to see her life in a new light, Dowell (The Second Life of Abigail Walker) examines the clash between city and country life and what true wealth really means” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).
