From Newbery Medal winner Carol Ryrie Brink comes a story about one unforgettable family. Susan, George, and Dumpling have a special life in Midwest City, where they live with their college-professor dad and mystery-writer mom. Not only can they watch the university's football games from the tower of their house on College Avenue, but now Tommy Tokarynski, who mows their lawn, is famous. He's Midwest University's star quarterback. There's only one problem: Tommy's grades are dreadful, and he might get kicked off the team before the homecoming game. With a little ingenuity, Susan, George, and Dumpling team up for a season of fun as they set out to save their beloved quarterback, outsmart their naughty neighbors, rescue animals, and start a new business that just might help out the whole family. It's never a dull moment when the Ridgeway kids are involved! The adventures of the Ridgeway family in Family Grandstand and its sequel, Family Sabbatical, were inspired by Carol Ryrie Brink's own family and their life together in Saint Paul, Minnesota.

Capturing in rich detail the freewheeling sixties, One Minus One explores a young woman s journey toward self-realization following a painful divorce. In 1969, thirty-year-old Emily Bean moves to a town in New Hampshire s coastal region to take a job as a high-school teacher. Struggling with the challenges of single life and still in love with her ex-husband, David, Emily attracts the attention of local radio personality Warren, and also Cliff, the head of the high-school English department, who might perhaps take David s place in her life. Just as the town must inevitably change with the times, Emily must try to make a new future even as she longs to recapture the past. Book Lust Rediscoveries is a series devoted to reprinting some of the best (and now out of print) novels originally published from 1960 to 2000. Each book is personally selected by NPR commentator and Book Lust author Nancy Pearl and includes an introduction by her, as well as discussion questions for book groups and a list of recommended further reading."
