Book Catch a Falling Star

Download or read book Catch a Falling Star written by Kim Culbertson and published by Scholastic Inc.. This book was released on 2014-04-29 with total page 315 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A deliciously charming novel about finding true love . . . and yourself. Nothing ever happens in Little, CA. Which is just the way 17-year-old Carter Moon likes it. But when Hollywood arrives to film a movie starring former child star-turned public relations mess Adam Jakes, everything changes. Utterly annoyed, Carter feels like the only girl not buying what Hollywood's selling. Then Carter gets an offer she can't refuse: play the part of Adam's girlfriend while he's in Little, to improve his public image, and take home a hefty paycheck, which her family desperately needs. So instead of a summer hanging out with friends and working, Carter begrudgingly poses for the tabloids but soon finds that Adam isn't who she thought. Worse yet, she might actually be falling for him. As they grow closer, their relationship walks a blurry line between what's real and what's fake; and Carter must open her eyes to the scariest of unexplored worlds - her future. Can Carter figure out what she wants out of life AND get the boy? Or are there no Hollywood endings in real life?

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This coming-of-age story by multiple-award-winner Meg McKinlay is about loss and grief, dealing with change and fighting to hold on to what you can, while letting go of what you can’t. It’s 1979 and the sky is falling. Skylab, that is. Somewhere high above Frankie Avery, one of the world’s first space stations is tumbling to Earth. And rushing back with it are old memories. Things twelve-year-old Frankie thought she’d forgotten. Things her mum won’t talk about, and which her little brother Newt never knew. Only ... did he? Does he? Because as Skylab circles closer, Newt starts acting strangely. And while the world watches the sky, Frankie keeps her own eyes on Newt. Because if anyone’s going to keep him safe, it’s her. It always has been. But maybe this is something bigger than splinters and spiders and sleepwalking. Maybe a space station isn’t the only thing heading straight for calamity.

Book excerpt: A hundred thousand years from now, it was discovered that a star was approaching the world on a collision course. Its discoverer, Creohan, figured there might be time to save the world if he could arouse everyone to the danger. But the Earth had become a strange and kaleidoscopic place in that distant era. Too many empires had risen and fallen, too many cultures had spread their shattered fragments across a planet whose very maps had long since been forgotten. People were too busy with their own private dreams to pay attention to one more new alarm. The story Creohan's effort to Catch a Falling Star is one of John Brunner's most colourful science-fiction concepts.

Book excerpt: It was after midnight in 1990, and a group of NASA technicians are playing chess in the lounge. They never notice the soft clicking noises as radiation detectors kick in and a strange code begins taking over a computer monitor. As a glowing saucer zips past the Voyager, locks itself into orbit around Neptune, rolls over, and then disappears from view, the technicians loudly argue over the rules of the game unaware that aliens are headed toward Earth. Unfortunately, the amphibian-like creatures who reproduce in alarming numbers have made a serious mistake. They have chosen a small town in Iowa as the place to launch their invasion, mistakenly thinking they can attack under a cloak of invisibility. But this rural setting is protected by the Pirates, an elite team of adventurers and foilers of evil plots comprised of the most dangerous creatures on planet Earth young boys. As the alien invaders kidnap one of the pirates and begin to examine him for weaknesses, they have no idea that they have in their possession the girl-hating, chaos-creating nuisance that is the bane of all fourth-grade math teachers in town. It may be the last mistake they'll ever make.

Book excerpt: The moment that Jade Goody stepped into the Big Brother house, her life changed forever. As soon as the blonde, bubbly dental nurse from south London opened her mouth on national TV, she secured her place as the unofficial winner of the show’s third season. The glitz and glamour of Jade's sudden fame was a far cry from the real life drama of the estate where she made her start. Brought up caring for her disabled mum at an age when most kids are looking after their dolls, Jade didn't have an easy childhood. With her dad in prison and her mum struggling to cope, she had experienced more by the time she started high school than most people do in their whole lifetime. Now, over six years after her unforgettable exit from the Big Brother house, she remains a famous reality star, her warmth, enthusiasm, and dizzy exterior having endeared her to millions of people. Recently diagnosed with cervical cancer while taking part in India's BB-style show, she has had to face the toughest battle of her life in the full glare of the national media. A wonderful mom with inspirational dedication, Jade is determined to give her boys, Bobby and Freddy, the upbringing she never had. There have been many trials and tribulations along the way and Jade is the first to admit that she has made some terrible mistakes, but with brutal honesty she refuses to gloss over the struggles and errors of her past. She speaks candidly about the time she spent having therapy and tells all about her past relationships and the trauma of her recent diagnosis. Packed full of witty anecdotes and heart-rending tales, all told with Jade's usual humor and unique turn of phrase, this remarkable book is by turns funny, moving, and disarmingly honest. A frank autobiography, with no detail spared, it reveals the real Jade Goody, up close and personal.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Lea crash-lands her shot-up scout ship on Pamaar-a planet that shouldn't be there. She finds an exotic world with no technology, ruled by a gorgeous man with white-blond hair, dark eyes and a beautiful tattoo of a lion across his back. Thane is fascinated by the lady who fell from the sky, sure she's part of the prophecy that will restore his power and heal his people. His lover, the warrior Deon, is more cautious, but he likewise feels a sexual pull to Lea and her unusual green eyes. Lea finds herself quickly drawn to two men who are very much in love with each other, surprised when they assume she'll form a threesome with them. She faces a difficult choice-if she finds out what's wrong with the protective shield around Pamaar and restores it, she'll be stranded there forever. But if she escapes, she'll leave Thane and Deon, the two men she's coming to love, to certain death.
