Yo, Miss – A Graphic Look at High School takes the reader inside Wildcat Academy, a second chance high school in New York City where all the students are considered at-risk. Through strong and revealing black and white images, the book tells the story of eight students who are trying to get that ticket to the middle class – a high school diploma. Whether they succeed or not has as much to do with what happens outside the classroom as in, and the value of perseverance is matched by the power of a second chance. It is a story that shows these teens in all their beauty, intelligence, suffering, humor, and humanity (and also when they are really pains in the behind.) A view from the trenches of public education, Yo, Miss challenges preconceptions about who these kids are, and what is needed to help them graduate.

After a 90-day course to take her from computer programmer to math teacher, Victoria Rivas told her students at one point, "[I] believed I could quit my corporate job and come teach you guys something." However, her inner-city middle school Numeracy students could not multiply or read an analog clock, let alone deal with fractions and percents. Students who failed 6th grade were passed on to 7th grade because there was no room in 6th. As she dealt with pregnant 7th graders, fire drills at twenty below zero, food fights, and police officers dragging students off in handcuffs, the administration was more intent on good behavior than learning. Instead of saving "inner city students from themselves," she had to save her sanity and her self-esteem, and still learn to teach.

At the tender age of six months, Mattie Rose and Annie Lizbeth Radley are left behind by their mother who prefers to seek greener, unencumbered pastures. Nine years later, these bright and high-spirited twins are ready to enter fifth grade and conquer new challenges. Supported by the love of their wise and practical grandmother, and the guidance of their hard-working, loyal father, the twins' tenth year is filled with fun, childhood foolishness, as well as an awakening to the realities of a more complicated world. This is a poignant story of childhood innocence, resilience, the drive to overcome hardship, and the acceptance of bitter truth. It is the story of family, and the unbreakable bonds of sisterly love.

Centered around the themes of death, women as objects of desire, lost love, motherhood, and children, the poems in this selection offer insight into the work of this well-known abolitionist and advocate of women's rights. Including Grimke's prose and drama, which often focus on lynching, this volume sheds new light on a perspective characterized by the African-American experience of racial pride and the reaction against racists acts.

The #1 New York Times Best Seller is now a major motion picture from visionary director Tim Burton, starring Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Ella Purnell, Samuel L. Jackson, and Judi Dench. Bonus features • Q&A with author Ransom Riggs • Eight pages of color stills from the film • Sneak preview of Hollow City, the next novel in the series A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs. It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive. A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows. “A tense, moving, and wondrously strange first novel. The photographs and text work together brilliantly to create an unforgettable story.”—John Green, New York Times best-selling author of The Fault in Our Stars “With its X-Men: First Class-meets-time-travel story line, David Lynchian imagery, and rich, eerie detail, it’s no wonder Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children has been snapped up by Twentieth Century Fox. B+”—Entertainment Weekly “‘Peculiar’ doesn’t even begin to cover it. Riggs’ chilling, wondrous novel is already headed to the movies.”—People “You’ll love it if you want a good thriller for the summer. It’s a mystery, and you’ll race to solve it before Jacob figures it out for himself.”—Seventeen
