<i>You have been chosen. </i><br /><br />Those four words change Violet Spencer鈥檚 whole life, when against staggering odds, she's selected in the "princess ballot." <br /><br />Arbon Academy is affectionately known as the school for Royals. Only the rich, powerful, or heir to a throne gain entry ... except for the one scholarship student accepted every five years. It's a worldwide lottery, and one that Violet entered without giving it any serious thought. <br /><br />But the media got it wrong and Arbon Academy is much more than a simple college for future leaders.<br /><br />It鈥檚 a dark world of politics, intrigue, and dangerous guys who will stop at nothing to get their own way. Despite her best efforts at remaining off the radar, Violet finds herself a pawn between two of the most powerful monarchies in the world. <br /><br />Prince Rafe of the Switzerlands and Prince Alex of the Australasias are bitter enemies both on the soccer field and in the political arena. Monarchies rule the world now, and every waking breath is a competition for the princes. <br /><br />Control the ball.<br />Control the world. <br />Control Violet. <br /><br />Whether it's through love or hate, someone will ultimately win.<br /><br />*This is book one in a dark college romance. This is not a RH or traditional love triangle story, but it does include a-hole princes, nasty princesses, and one chick who will take none of their sh!t, all the while doing her best to make it out alive. HEA guaranteed. Eventually. 17+.<br />

Customer Reviews
Along with Sun Tzu's The Art of War, The Book of Five Rings is considered to be one of the most insightful texts on the subtle arts of confrontation and victory to emerge from Asia. Composed in 1643 by the famed duelist and undefeated samurai Miyamoto Musashi, The Book of Five Rings analyzes the process of struggle and mastery over conflict that underlies every level of human interaction. For Musashi, the way of the martial arts was a mastery of the mind rather than simply technical prowess鈥攁nd it is this path to mastery that is the core teaching in The Book of Five Rings. This brilliant manifesto is written not only for martial artists but for anyone who wants to apply the timeless principles of this text to their life.

Two young boys are caught up in the world of fighting. Problems between pretty girls and guys are the catalyst for the fights. <br /><br />In the story violence or bullying is a matter of everyday life. There is real fighting and suffering. There are victims but no heroes. Bullying and fighting are the featured story. Fighting organizations and bullies combine to put a stranglehold on an entire community. Names and races of those in the story are changed. This is not a feel good book. <br /><br />Ninety percent of the book is the story. About ten percent is practical advice. As a practical matter, many people enjoy fighting for theater. This book is that too. Thus, those not interested in bullying and fighting issues may find the book interesting. The book is a journey to experience a fight. <br /><br />The feature story provides a nice window to look at fighting and bullying issues. Martial art concepts of eliminating fighting and stopping bullying are on display. <br /><br />Fighters are not exonerated or extolled. Fighting and bullying are topics which are addressed in meaningful ways. Limitations and productiveness of fighting are issues, and both are thoughtfully discussed. The feature story provides prerogatives to enable a better understanding of bullying and fighting issues. <br /><br />Stopping bully behavior can be extraordinarily difficult. This story is no exception because it took five years to stop bullying around a handful of young beautiful girls. Accuracy in describing social conditions around fighting and bullying is the intent of the manuscript. Advice to stop bullying behavior is provided. <br /><br />Profanity in the book is minimal. Some words are highlighted with asterisks in order to allow the book to be readable for a youthful audience. Profanity is only used in rare exceptions where no other explanation completes the narrative. There is no explicit sexual material in the book, but sex was a factor in living conditions. Sex is only mentioned because it was a catalyst for fighting, and the topic is handled with extreme care and caution.<br /><br /><br /><br />

<b>In this captivating and lavishly illustrated young adult edition of her award-winning #1 <i>New York Times</i>聽bestseller, Laura Hillenbrand tells the story of a former Olympian's courage, cunning, and fortitude following his plane crash in enemy territory. This adaptation of <i>Unbroken</i> introduces a new generation to one of history's most thrilling survival epics.聽</b><br /><br />On a May afternoon in 1943, an American military plane crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared. It was that of a young lieutenant, the plane鈥檚 bombardier, who was struggling to a life raft and pulling himself aboard. So began one of the most extraordinary sagas of the Second World War.<br />聽<br />The lieutenant鈥檚 name was Louis Zamperini. As a boy, he had been a clever delinquent, breaking into houses, brawling, and stealing. As a teenager, he had channeled his defiance into running, discovering a supreme talent that carried him to the Berlin Olympics. But when war came, the athlete became an airman, embarking on a journey that led to his doomed flight, a tiny raft, and a drift into the unknown.<br />聽<br />Ahead of Zamperini lay thousands of miles of open ocean, leaping sharks, a sinking raft, thirst and starvation, enemy aircraft, and, beyond, a trial even greater. Driven to the limits of endurance, Zamperini would respond to desperation with ingenuity, suffering with hope and humor, brutality with rebellion. His fate, whether triumph or tragedy, would hang on the fraying wire of his will.<br />聽<br />Featuring more than one hundred photographs plus an exclusive interview with Zamperini, this breathtaking odyssey鈥攁lso captured on film by director Angelina Jolie鈥攊s a testament to the strength of the human spirit and the ability to endure against the unlikeliest of odds.<br /><br /><br /><b>Praise for聽<i>Unbroken<br /></i></b><br />"This adaptation of Hillenbrand's adult bestseller is highly dramatic and exciting, as well as painful to read as it lays bare man's hellish inhumanity to man."鈥?lt;b><i>Booklist</i>, STARRED</b><br /><br />"This captivating book emphasizes the importance of determination, the will to survive against impossible odds, and support from family and friends. A strong, well-written work."鈥?lt;b><i>SLJ<br /></i></b><br />"This fine adaptation ably brings an inspiring tale to young readers."鈥?lt;i><b>Kirkus</b><br /></i>
