At fifteen, Terry Flynn had the face of an angel and the body of a perfect athlete... Set in a small boarding school on the eve of America's entry into World War Two, A Good School tells the story of William Grove, the nervous teenager trying to fit in; the betrayed alcoholic, Jack Draper; and Edith Stone, the teacher's daughter, who falls in love with the most popular boy in school. Instantly acclaimed on its first publication, peopled with some of Richard Yates's most memorable characters, this tender, spare masterpiece is a haunting meditation on the twilight of youth, and an unforgettable description of the impact of war on the lives of an innocent generation.
At boarding school, Kaitlin made real friends and became a part of a team. And she met Rhys. Hot. Wicked. Her Soul Mate. She was one day away from turning him into her boyfriend when she accidently drugs everyone with the science professor's experimental compound. Their athletic skills improve. Their mental skills improve. Then the professor tries to destroy the evidence. Them. Kaitlin lies to her parents to cover everything up and ruins her chances with Rhys. Boarding school is over and it's back to Shay Prep in Manhattan. But she's not going alone. She's headed there with a pissed off Rhys who has little control over his new talents, and zero interest in becoming her boyfriend. And the lab professor, well, he won't let go of his data so easily. Kaitlin will have to use every new talent she has along with her connection to Rhys to conquer the Prep School Experiment.
All the moves to become a serious skateboarder.
Praise for The Skateboarding Field Manual, also by Ryan Stutt:
"Stutt's appealing title is rife with the glossy glamour that should win nods of approval from even proficient shredders." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

In Songs of the Second Viennese School: A Performer's Guide to Selected Solo Vocal Works, scholar Loralee Songer outlines for singers and voice teachers critical information on selected solo vocal works by three major classical composers active during the first half of the twentieth century: Arnold Schoenberg, Alban Berg, and Anton Webern. For too long, the remarkable vocal works of these composers have received insufficient attention because too many have assumed their works to be "unsingable" atonal pieces, musically impossible (or unrewarding) for performers and entirely unsatisfying for listening audiences. For each composer, Songer provides information about the composer's educational background and compositional style, as well as commentary on representative vocal works supported by musical examples. The discussion is bolstered by interviews with renowned singers who supply advice for practice and performance. A catalog of selected songs featuring information on each work's poet, key, range, and German-English translation is also provided. Voice teachers and singers of varying levels will benefit from this book's practical content and format, and the exposure to under-appreciated works will enhance recital performance repertoire substantially.
