              Something special among war histories . . . No other gives both sides of the battle in as detailed and telling a manner. -Chicago Sun-Times Six months after Pearl Harbor, the seemingly invincible Imperial Japanese Navy prepared a decisive blow against the United States. After swe...eping through Asia and the South Pacific, Japan's military targeted the tiny atoll of Midway, an ideal launching pad for the invasion of Hawaii and beyond. The US Navy would be waiting for them. Thanks to cutting-edge code-breaking technology, tactical daring, and a significant stroke of luck, the Americans under Admiral Chester W. Nimitz dealt the Japanese navy its first major defeat of the war. Three years of hard fighting remained, but it was at Midway that the tide turned. This stirring, even suspenseful narrative is the first book to tell the story of the epic battle from both the American and Japanese sides (Newsday). Miracle at Midway reveals how America won its first and greatest victory of the Pacific war-and how easily it could have been a defeat.

              The OPSIG team must literally leave Earth to save it in this thriller ride of a lifetime from the USA Today-bestselling author of The Lost Codex (Gayle Lynds). In 1972, Apollo 17 returned to Earth with two hundred pounds of rock--as well as something far more dangerous than they ...could have imagined. For decades, the military concealed the crew's mysterious discovery. But now a NASA contractor has leaked the intel to conspiring foreign powers, putting in their hands the most powerful weapon of mass destruction yet created. While FBI profiler Karen Vail and OPSIG Team Black colleague Alexandra Rusakov try to root out the NASA mole and break up the spy ring, covert operatives Hector DeSantos and Aaron Uziel prepare for a mission beyond anything they've ever attempted--a spaceflight to the moon itself--to avert a war that could not only disrupt the global balance of power, but also end in catastrophic annihilation . . . Dark Side of the Moon is the 4th book in the OPSIG Team Black series, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

In Pakko's Camel, Yehoshuah, the poor son of a carpenter, befriends Pakko, the arrogant son of a rich merchant. Yehoshuah cares for of Pakk...o's camel and shares with him the knowledge of the precious gifts he received from three wise men. But when Yehoshuah's treasures are taken, he quickly learns that all gifts have a price. In The Sphinx at Dawn, Yehoshuah and his camel journey into the desert, where they come across the monstrous, hungry Sphinx. Intrigued and unafraid, Yehoshuah endeavors to answer the Sphinx's riddles-and in doing so, he begins the real journey of a man with an incredible destiny. Known for both her literary accomplishments as a winner of the Newbery Medal and the National Book Award, and her spiritual outlook, Madeleine L'Engle presents two affecting and inspiring tales for readers of any age.
