• Description : A warm coming-of-age novel about a community banding together in the wake of a tornado, perfect for fans of reader favorites like Fish in a Tree by Lynda Mullaly Hunt and Lost in the Sun by Lisa Graff. The night of the sixth-grade dance is supposed to be perfect for Maddie: she’ll wear her perfect new dress, hit the dance floor with her friends, and her crush, Avery, will ask her to dance. But as the first slow song starts to play, her plans crumble. Avery asks someone else to dance instead—and then the power goes out. Huddled in the gym, Maddie and her friends are stunned to hear that a tornado has ripped through the other side of town, destroying both Maddie’s and Avery’s homes. Kind neighbors open up their home to Maddie’s and Avery’s families, which both excites and horrifies Maddie. Sharing the same house . . . with Avery? For the entire summer? While it buys her some time to prove that Avery made the wrong choice at the dance, it also means he’ll be there to witness her morning breath and her annoying little brother. At the dance, all she wanted was to be more grown-up. Now that she has no choice, is she really ready for it? Praise for 14 Hollow Road: "Bishop nails the tween voice: Maddie is a realistic heroine who deals with typical middle-grade problems amidst disaster, and she navigates upheavals with occasional grace and more frequent missteps."--Booklist "The emotional impact of this coming-of-age novel lies in its sensitive exploration of Maddie’s changing friendships in the transition from elementary school to junior high...Readers going through the messy transition into adolescence will find hope in the newly strengthened friendships with which Maddie enters seventh grade."--The Bulletin "The hopeful tone and conversational writing style make this an accessible read."--SLJ “This gorgeous summer tale will hit the spot with fans of The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall and Gertie’s Leap to Greatness by Kate Beasley.” —Erin E. Moulton, author of Flutter and Keepers of the Labyrinth [...] by Publisher : 'Knopf Books for Young Readers'

• Description : DOLORES PALA was born and grew up in New York. She first went to Paris at the age of twenty where she still lives. She worked with the United Nations and with an organization dealing with exiles from Central Europe during the icy early years of the Cold War from which she derived the colorful, taut atmosphere of Vienna that is the background to Run A Hollow Road. She describes young Americans abroad then, so different from Hemingway's characters, in a Europe dangerously torn by conflicting ideologies, a long way from the Charleston. And she shows how the fifties bore little resemblance to the twenties. Yet the young Americans abroad she introduces us to are endearing, even flamboyant, enjoying the freedom of Europe, bent on fulfilling themselves no matter what the social climate of the times. Each in his own way and in radically different voices, introduce us to a yesterday we have almost forgotten and an innocence barely lost. RUN A HOLLOW ROAD is her third novel. It takes place in Vienna and spans a decade of international intrigue and contending ideologies at a nerve center in our divided world. The characters are young and American, the background is old and very European. It is a novel of contrasts, tenderness and tension, commitment and elusiveness. It introduces us to life-sized characters and a few who prove to be outsized and everlasting. It is a portrait of a period and after reading it we are enriched. [...] by Publisher : 'iUniverse'

• Description : This story goes back to the early nineteenth century in a small town called Willow Oaks. Abraham and his family owned the majority of Willow Oaks farm land until a shrewd business man by the name of Jasper bought a small patch of land near Abraham's farm. It wasn't long before jealousy set in and being that Jasper was a smart man and Abraham wasn't he used it to his advantage to swindle Abraham out of the majority of his land but when Abraham didn't receive the money promised to him by Jasper he threatened to kill him. Instead of Jasper making good on his promise and pay the money that was owed to Abraham he decided to shut Abraham up for good. The following morning Jasper went to the hardware store to purchase an ax thinking that would solve everything and being that it was a small town nobody would ever find out he did the dirty deed. Around mid afternoon Jasper saddled his horse up and rode to Abraham's farm house to tell him he would have his money by morning, but he knew very well he didn't have the money to pay him for the land. Being that Abraham trusted everyone he believed the lies that Jasper fed him and trusted the money would be in his hands by morning. The only reason Jasper rode out to his farm wasn't about reassuring Abraham he would get his money but to case out his house and property so when nightfall came he would come back with his ax and finish off his family.
