Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Meet Kate Malone-straight A science and math geek, minister's daughter, ace long-distance runner, girlfriend, unwilling family caretaker, emotional avoidance champion. Kate manages her life by organizing it, as logically as the periodic table. She can handle it all-or so she thinks. Then, like a string of chemical reactions, everything happens: the Malones' neighbors get burned out of their home and move in. Because her father is a Good Man of God (and a Not Very Thoughtful Parent), Kate has to share her room with her nemesis, Teri Litch, and Teri's adorable, troublemaking little brother. And through it all, she's still waiting to hear from the only college she has applied to: MIT. Kate's life is less and less under control-and then, something happens that blows it all apart, and forces her to examine her life, self, and heart for the first time. Set in the same community as the remarkable Speak, Catalyst is a novel that will make you think, laugh, cry, and rejoice-sometimes at the same time.

Synopsis:

Maggies grandmother runs an animal clinic, Dr. Macs place, so Maggie knows her way around animals who are in danger. when she learns that the abused and sick puppies flooding the clinic are from an illegal puppy mill, she knows that she has to find out whos running it, where it is—and save the rest of the dogs.

Synopsis:

Jules and Josh are so excited when their parents hire ponies to attract customers to their sidewalk sale. But the Vet Volunteers notice that the ponies don't seem to be very healthy, and after an examination, they learn that the handler, Gus, has been mistreating them. Can the Vet Volunteers help the ponies get well and find a better life for them?
