The moving tribute to the young man Oprah Winfrey called "an inspiration"-told by the woman who raised him. Mattie Stepanek's Heartsongs books were a phenomenon. Not only did they hit the bestseller lists, but the books-and Mattie himself- were a source of inspiration to many, and brought him major recognition. Jimmy Carter described young Mattie Stepanek as "the most remarkable person I have ever known." In Messenger, Jeni Stepanek shares the inspiring story of her son's life. Mattie was born with a rare disorder called Dysautonomic Mitochondrial Myopathy, and Jeni was advised to institutionalize him. Instead, she nurtured a child who transformed his hardships into a worldwide message of peace and hope. Though Mattie suffered through his disease, his mother's disabilities, and the loss of his three older siblings, he never abandoned his positive spirit. His Heartsong- the word he used to describe a person's inner self-spread a philosophy that peace begins with an attitude and can spread to the entire world.

Most readers know that "happiness is within," but they don't always know how to access that happiness whenever they like, and in all circumstances. In Serenity, Jane Nelsen teaches readers four principles that will help them to stop being a slave to their thought system in order to access wisdom from the heart and from the soul. The four basic and easily applied principles from Serenity: 1. Free yourself from the filters of your thought system. 2. Understand how feelings can act as a personal compass. 3. Improve relationships by understanding and respecting differences. 4. Learn how to overcome depression, anger, or any negative feeling. The chronic stress of modern life often interferes with enjoying the happiness that comes with peace of mind. Joy is needlessly missing from too many lives and from too many relationships. Serenity provides many tools to help readers discover innate feelings of joy, compassion, gratitude, wisdom, and love so they can live more fully every day.

Nominiert für den Deutschen Jugendliteraturpreis 2008 Mike Nelson, wegen seiner Körperfülle Moo genannt, lässt Beleidigungen und Prügel, die er in der Schule als verachteter Außenseiter oft einsteckt, an sich abprallen wie Regen. Sein Zufluchtsort ist eine Autobahnbrücke, von der aus er den Verkehr beobachtet, sich an Lichtern und Bewegungen berauscht. Dabei wird er Zeuge eines Vorfalls, den er nicht deuten kann: Ein Wagen drängt einen anderen ab, die Fahrer halten auf dem Standstreifen, geraten in Streit, ein Mann geht zu Boden. Später werden die Ermittlungsbehörden behaupten, der Fahrer des abgedrängten Wagens habe den anderen erstochen. Moo aber hat genau gesehen, dass das nicht stimmt. Da es sich bei dem Beschuldigten um den berüchtigten Kriminellen Keith Vine handelt, den die Staatsanwaltschaft schon lange dingfest machen will, ist die Sache äußerst brisant: Was Moo gesehen hat, macht ihn zum Entlastungszeugen für Vine – doch will er das überhaupt sein?
