📝Touching Spirit Bear Book Synopsis : In his Napra Nautilus Award-winning novel Touching Spirit Bear, author Ben Mikaelson delivers a poignant coming-of-age story of a boy who must overcome the effects that violence has had on his life. After severely injuring Peter Driscal in an empty parking lot, mischief-maker Cole Matthews is in major trouble. But instead of jail time, Cole is given another option: attend Circle Justice, an alternative program that sends juvenile offenders to a remote Alaskan Island to focus on changing their ways. Desperate to avoid prison, Cole fakes humility and agrees to go. While there, Cole is mauled by a mysterious white bear and left for dead. Thoughts of his abusive parents, helpless Peter, and his own anger cause him to examine his actions and seek redemption—from the spirit bear that attacked him, from his victims, and from himself.

📝 Book Synopsis : Новый роман лидера новой волны американской литературы. Критики окрестили его хипстерским "1984". Начинающаяся как милая, полная всеобщей любви и дружбы, история о рае медиа-сетей, постепенно перерастает в тревожную, апокалиптическую антиутопию, пугающую и завораживающую своей неизбежностью. В этом мире все друг другу готовы помочь: стоит тебе чего-то пожелать, как тут же возникнет стартап, который осуществит твое желание. Мир прекрасен всюду, где его коснулась "Сфера" – могущественная компания, в которой собрались самые продвинутые, самые умные, самые доброжелательные люди со всего мира. "Сфера" творит новый мир – мир, где нет преступлений и преступности, где все друг о друге знают все, где твоя жизнь – открытая книга. Мир без секретов, без зависти и зла. Залогинься, ставь лайки, дружи – и будет тебе счастье навсегда... Мэй Холланд крупно повезло. Ее взяли на работу в идеальную компанию — самую передовую, самую гуманную, самую разумную на свете, средоточие всего мирового прогресса. «Сфера» — союз блистательных умов поколения. Здесь все прислушиваются ко всем и все вдохновенно совершенствуют мир. Здесь Мэй окружают единомышленники, все ее любят, ее труд ценят, начальство тревожится о ее личном благополучии и здоровье ее родных, а за просчеты критикуют мягко, потому что в Мэй верят. «Сфера» — технологический исполин, неуклонно шагающий по пути абсолютного добра. «Сфера» могущественнее «Гугла» и «Фейсбука», в «Сфере» разработаны самые популярные социальные медиа, самая эффективная система интернет-поиска, тысячи приложений, несказанно упрощающих людям жизнь. Что ни день, «Сфера» совершает ослепительные научные и технические прорывы; активно занимается благотворительностью; поощряет сотрудников мечтать и воплощать мечты в жизнь; добивается справедливости и комфорта для всего человечества. Посредством интернета (каким мы знаем его сегодня) «Сфера» (с которой мы пока не сталкивались, но имеем немало шансов столкнуться) строит общество, где власти стопроцентно подотчетны гражданам, а граждане сообща улучшают абсолютно прозрачный мир, где не осталось больше грязных тайн. И вообще никаких тайн не осталось. Ну в самом деле: если ты не делаешь ничего дурного, зачем тебе что-то скрывать? То, что начиналось как утопия наивных идеалистов — цифровое общество, «глобальная деревня», полная свобода информации, всеобщая открытость, готовность делиться, поддерживать, принимать, — стремительно превращается в эпоху кромешного света, где не бывает ночи и никто ни от кого не может спрятаться. В океане обесцененной информации люди тонут. Подлинное приятие, реальная поддержка, настоящее сострадание заменяются виртуальными суррогатами — нажать «мне нравится» под фоткой, поставить смайлик под чужим постом, написать ни к чему не обязывающий комментарий. И каждый постоянно на виду. Кого угодно можно отыскать. Все барахтаются в потоках чужих мнений, страхов, бед, предпочтений, догадок и слухов, потому что лучше захлебываться в социуме, чем оказаться изгоем и дышать разреженным воздухом одиночества. В обстановке всеобщей прозрачности все приглядывают за всеми — вроде бы любуются, но на самом деле следят. Оруэлловский Старший Брат тепло, искренне улыбается, и каждый узнал бы в нем себя, если бы вгляделся, но никто не вглядывается и не вдумывается. Миллионы людей по доброй воле отказываются от свободы, от тайны: боятся, что, исчезнув с глаз толпы, они исчезнут вовсе. И если ты просто хочешь побыть один — берегись. Человечество желает заключить тебя в объятия и не остановится ни перед чем. Будь «Сфера» просто антиутопией, или просто черной комедией, или просто корпоративным триллером, можно было бы не бояться. Однако Дэйв Эггерс написал остроумную, блистательную, отчаянно актуальную и страшную сатиру на наш сегодняшний день. «Корпорация добра», социальные медиа, девальвация общения, повальная и неукротимая жажда признания, готовность жертвовать приватностью ради иллюзии массовой любви и прислушиваться к коллективному разуму, чтобы не остаться наедине с собственным, — все это наша сетевая повседневность, и до реальности «Сферы» нам осталось каких-то полшага. Человечество уже вполне готово к «Сфере» и по большей части опасности не чует. Информация, как известно, хочет быть свободной; мало кто догадывается, что, освободившись, она способна пожрать своих прекраснодушных освободителей.

📝Ghost of Spirit Bear Book Synopsis : Alone in the wilderness, Cole found peace. But he's not alone anymore. Cole Matthews used to be a violent kid, but a year in exile on a remote Alaskan island has a way of changing your perspective. After being mauled by a Spirit Bear, Cole started to heal. He even invited his victim, Peter Driscal, to join him on the island and they became friends. But now their time in exile is over, and Cole and Peter are heading back to the one place they're not sure they can handle: high school. Gangs and violence haunt the hallways, and Peter's limp and speech impediment make him a natural target. In a school where hate and tension are getting close to the boiling point, the monster of rage hibernating inside Cole begins to stir. Ben Mikaelsen's riveting saga of survival and self-awareness continues in the sequel to his gripping Touching Spirit Bear. This time, he weaves a tale of urban survival where every day is a struggle to stay sane. As the problems in his school grow worse, Cole realizes that it's not enough just to change himself. He has to change his world.

📝In Defense of Read Aloud Book Synopsis : "Amidst the clanging noise of today's technology, Steven Layne offers here a clear clarion call on behalf of reading to children. It is insightful, reasoned, entertaining (rare in the field), and carefully researched for those who might doubt the urgent need for something that doesn't need a Wi-Fi hot spot. It should be on every teacher's must-read list." -- Jim Trelease, author, The Read-Aloud Handbook As accountability measures for schools and teachers continue to grow, instructional practice is under the microscope. The practice of reading aloud to children may be viewed by some educators as an "extra"--a bit of fluff used solely for the purposes of enjoyment or filling a few spare minutes. But researchers and practitioners stand in solidarity: the practice of reading aloud throughout the grades is not only viable but also best practice. In Defense of Read-Aloud reinforces readers' confidence to continue the practice of reading aloud and presents the research base to defend the practice in grades K-12. Steven Layne also offers significant practical insights to strengthen instructional practice--answering the questions of "Why should we?" and "How should we?"--and provides practical advice about how to use read-alouds most effectively. Leading researchers in the field of literacy provide position statements, authors of professional books share insights on books they have loved, leaders of the largest literacy organizations in the United States write about their favorite read-alouds, award-winning authors of children's and young adult book (Katherine Paterson, Andrew Clements, Lois Lowry, to name a few) share the powerful behind-the-scenes stories of their greatest books, and real classroom teachers and librarians speak about books that have "lit up" their classrooms and libraries around the world. Last but not least, In Defense of Read-Aloud features many great recommendations of books to share with children. Read-aloud is an essential practice in teaching literacy in grades K-12. In this book, Steven Layne has provided everything needed to support, sustain, and celebrate the power of read-aloud.
