Sherlock Express- Race to Solve the Mystery! by BLUE ORANGE GAMES. Idiom Addict Word Game by The Good Game Company. New Games, Party Games, Family & Classic Games. Kids’ Books to Encourage Acceptance and Inclusion. The Emoji Card Game by Ginger Fox. Kellogg's Pop-Tarts Card Game by FUNKO. The Okay Witch by Emma Steinkellner, Paperback. This graphic novel is meant for a middle grade audience and is about a girl that is just trying to be herself in a town and school of people that just won't accept her.
Then she finds out that she is also a witch... how cool is that? Moth is hilarious, she knows herself and she knows her limitations and abilities and is really trying to just survive her life when she finds out that she has so much more potential. The problem is, the town is stuck in the dark-ages and she has to be careful. Moth is a bit stubborn and can get into trouble pretty easily.
This graphic novel’s story was interesting and had a lot of drama points to keep the reader interested. I think that some of this story was a bit weird for me to handle, the blend of reality and fantastical was hard to accept, but the illustration was fun and bright and I think that MG readers will love this character because she is relatable and the world is different and interesting.
E. L. Konigsburg. There Are No Grown-ups: A Midlife Coming-of-Age Story by Pamela Druckerman, Hardcover. 03/26/2018Druckerman (Bringing Up BéBé) tackles the subject of entering her 40s in this amusing essay collection, with all 25 chapters cleverly entitled “How to” (e.g., “How to Be Jung,” “How to Have a Midlife Crisis”).
Druckerman, who has lived in Paris for 12 years with her British journalist husband (and their three kids), opens by painting a colorful picture of her Miami childhood, where she was raised by positive-thinking, “incompatible” Jewish parents. She then shifts to life in France, including the chapter “How to Plan a Ménàge a Trois” (originally in Marie Claire) about the threesome she gave her husband when he turned 40.
Druckerman claims 40 is when Parisians began calling her madame instead of mademoiselle, and when she realized she could no longer sport a youthful wardrobe (blazers and navy blue are now de rigueur, say French fashion rules). Women Rowing North: Navigating Life's Currents and Flourishing As We Age by Mary Pipher, Paperback. An enlightening look at how women can age joyfully.”

. ★ 07/16/2018Pipher (The Green Boat), best known for challenging the cultural perspective on teenage girls in 1994’s bestselling Reviving Ophelia, brings her professional skill as a cultural anthropologist and her personal experience as a woman transitioning from middle age to old age to a work chock-full of wisdom and consoling messages. Things You Save in a Fire: A Novel by Katherine Center, Paperback. Standard romance, but won't be my last by this author This was my first read by Katherine Center, and it won't be my last.
This is a standard romance - instant attraction between two people who believe they shouldn't (or can't) be together for one reason or another. They both have their complicated back stories. Cassie's is that her mother left and "something" horrible happened to her on her 16th birthday. We guess early on what the "something" is, and the combination of the two things is what makes her not believe in love. Cassie reminded me of the character Hernandez from the "Station 19" television series - a woman in a male-dominated field who has to work twice as hard to prove herself.
The thing that knocked it down to 4 stars for me was that when we get to the end and Cassie will admit she's in love, she's portrayed as soft and a little weepy, and I don't think that was necessary.

Use Your LinkedIn Profile to Market Your Company [TEMPLATES]
LinkedIn is more than an online resume. Yes, people who want to hire you will check your LinkedIn profile, but if someone is trying to decide whether or not to hire your company, you can bet they will be checking LinkedIn as well. As a result, your LinkedIn profile is like a mini-landing page for you and your company. If it’s set up right, your profile views will convert into sales.
If it’s set up wrong, you might end up losing sales. Like a landing page, the key to a successful LinkedIn profile is understanding your audience and your value proposition. Your audience is easy, they are usually people who want to hire you or your company. Your value proposition, on the other hand, is a little more complex.
On your LinkedIn profile, you are trying to sell yourself. To do that, you need to market yourself—flaunt what you’ve got! How do you do that? Your digital reputation. (30) Pinterest. (30) Pinterest.
