How do you choose between your faith and your future?
Sixteen-year-old Stevie Albie is a religious person, but nothing prepares her for meeting Mary. Like the Mary, mother of Jesus. Just as Stevie becomes convinced she has a special connection with God, doctors discover a brain tumor in her frontal lobe they claim is causing the hallucinations.
Her parents insist on removing the tumor as quickly as possible, but Stevie isn't so sure. Feeling special for the first time in her life, she runs away to a religious cult that's convinced her visions are their salvation and vow to protect her. But as time goes on she suspects they have their own agenda. Torn on who to trust, Stevie wonders if she'll have to choose: her visions or her future?

"Instructive but punctuated with excitement—a rousing read-aloud work."
What happens when an exuberant exclamation point keeps taking over a story? Things get pretty interesting...
Pling is an exclamation point--he adds excitement to stories. He has one rule to follow: he can only appear twice in the story. As the tale of three goats unfolds, Pling has trouble staying out of the story until he's needed. Things get a bit out of hand and hilarity ensues.
In this book, children will learn to identify exclamation points in text as well as observe how an exclamation point makes sentences more exciting. They can practice reading with emphasis and discuss the difference with how a sentence is read with a period versus an exclamation point.
