Meet Holling Hoodhood, a seventh-grader at Camillo Junior High, who must spend Wednesday afternoons with his teacher, Mrs. Baker, while the rest of the class has religious instruction. Mrs. Baker doesn’t like Holling—he’s sure of it. Why else would she make him read the plays of William Shakespeare outside class? But everyone has bigger things to worry about, like Vietnam. His father wants Holling and his sister to be on their best behavior: the success of his business depends on it. But how can Holling stay out of trouble when he has so much to contend with?

My Father’s Heroes is the story of a 2nd generation Italian-American boy, Franco, growing up in New York during the 1940’to 1960’s, who is torn between his mother’s deeply religious beliefs and his father’s prophetic pragmatism. Through Franco's eyes, we see the Roosevelt years, World War II, the Atom Bomb, the Cuban Missile Crisis and other world events unfold. While a young boy attending Parochial school, Franco witnesses the priests who are responsible for creating his moral character commit egregious acts without recourse. It is then that he realizes that the people he has been taught to respect the most, are not what they seem to be. Disenchanted with this hypocrisy, Franco and his friends rebel. Simple pranks to boys become deviant ploys that cause more troubles than fun. After a friend is brutally assaulted by a local gang, the Young Sinners, Franco and his friends realize the only way to fight back and protect their neighborhood is to form their own gang. Franco turns to his father's old friend and the local Mafia Don, Mr. Anthony, for assistance. With Don Anthony's permission and the help of the Fordham Baldies and Daggers, Franco and his friends form The Imperial Hoods. Meanwhile, Franco's father's only ability to connect and help his son is through their mutual love of the Yankees. It is through their conversations and respect for the ball players of that time, Lazzeri, Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, Williams and Robinson, that they are able to create an impenetrable bond. People are hurt and the ultimate crime is committed. It is only when The Police, the Church, the Bishop and the Don are all involved that Franco realizes his own heroes and demons are also those of his father. He comes to find the age old quote, "the older I get, the smarter my father becomes," is actually true. My Father’s Heroes is an examination of the love between a father and son, a boy's recognition of his religion's inconsistencies, and the journey we must all take to realize who our heroes truly should be.

In the comics boom of the 1940s, a legend was born: the Green Turtle. He solved crimes and fought injustice just like the other comics characters. But this mysterious masked crusader was hiding something more than your run-of-the-mill secret identity... The Green Turtle was the first Asian American super hero. The comic had a short run before lapsing into obscurity, but the acclaimed author of American Born Chinese, Gene Luen Yang, has finally revived this character in Shadow Hero, a new graphic novel that creates an origin story for the Green Turtle.

An in-depth look at the therapeutic and transformative powers of storytelling in Native American and other cultures • Explores how to create a healing state of mind using stories • Includes healing stories from Native American traditions and other cultures from around the world • By the author of the bestselling Coyote Medicine Stories are powerful sources of meaning that shape and transform our lives. We tell stories to track our process of personal and spiritual growth and to honor and respect the journeys we have made. Through stories we are provided with experiences of spiritual empowerment that can lead to transformation. In Coyote Wisdom, Lewis Mehl-Madrona explores the healing use of stories passed down from generation to generation in Native American culture and describes how we can apply this wisdom to empower and transform our own lives. A storytelling approach to transformation starts with how we were created and how we can re-create ourselves through the stories we tell. As we explore the archetypal characters and situations that populate the inner world of our stories, we can experience breakthroughs of healing and even miracles of transformation. This approach to healing through stories runs counter to the current model of modern psychology. The stories we tell about ourselves may model our lives, but by introducing new characters and plots, we can come to see ourselves in a new way. The author also draws upon the cultures of other indigenous peoples--the Maori, East Africans, Mongolians, Aborigines, and Laplanders--to illustrate the healing use of stories throughout the world.
