Robert was determined to do his best and make his dead father proud. Esther put her grief aside to take care of her little sister. Roger didn’t believe his parents were dead, and was just going to have fun until they came back. Ruth was confused and lost. But Aunt Grace had set her mind to providing the best possible home for her orphaned niblings; and Aunt Grace always did what she set her mind on.
A poignant story about four orphans and their widowed aunt who takes them in. Set on a dairy farm in Northern Vermont in 1889, Bobtails follows the children’s journey through grief, jealousy, and, finally, settled love with a new family and friendships.
Mark is brilliant, except with people. He and his family are all convinced that this new school is too good to be true.
Mark was busy reading in class... since the last thing he needed or wanted to do was pay attention in school... when his teacher said that it was time for some special testing. All of the other students got very nice rewards for taking the tests. But Mark got an invitation to a special school, where he could make a lot of money and get out of all of the boring bits of school.
Mark was assigned a crazy computer programmer to help him with his school projects (and make a lot of money). He was also assigned a 'Social Guide' to help him learn how to relate to people. But none of them expected to have to deal with some 'seriously bad dudes'.
