Mädchen auf WhatsApp

"Wenn ihr wissen wollt, wie Mädchen heute ticken, dann lest dieses Buch!" - Matthias Schweighöfer

Marie-Lin und Manou? Das ist wie Vanilleeis mit Himbeeren. Zwei, die einfach zusammengehören. Über WhatsApp teilen die Freundinnen (fast) alles miteinander: ihre kleinen und großen Geheimnisse, ihre Ängste, ihre Sorgen, ihr Glück.

Aber dann verliebt sich Marie-Lin in einen Typen, der für sie eigentlich unerreichbar ist ... Ob sie Manou von ihm erzählen soll? Die Gefühle der beiden Mädchen jagen hin und her und stellen auch ihre Freundschaft immer wieder auf die Probe. Wenn die Liebe und das Leben doch nur nicht so kompliziert wären ... Ein Chatroman über zwei beste Freundinnen, ihre Gedanken, Träume und Sehnsüchte

Jo's Journey

Orca Book Publishers | Orca Young Readers


It's 1861 and orphan Jo has made it from Carson City, Nevada, to San Francisco without anyone figuring out that she's a girl in boy's clothing. When she hears talk of gold strikes in the Cariboo, Jo and her friend Bart sign on for what turns out to be a journey far more arduous and dangerous than anything Jo experienced as a Pony Express rider. Through it all, Jo keeps her true identity a secret. Strong men turn back but Jo forges ahead, unsure of what lies ahead but sure that her father and mother would be proud of her determination.

---

"A straightforward adventure story [that] does a good job of portraying the difficulties involved in the trek to the gold fields. Recommended."

Second Story Press | The Gutsy Girl Series


My name is Lee Mets (honest), and this is my book I’m part of the writing club, which is fantastic, since what I want to be most is a writer. My mother says that girls don’t grow up to be writers, they can only be nurses or teachers. But it’s the 1960s, not the 50s or 40s, and I think she may be wrong. Mrs. Gowdy, who is my writing teacher, says that I have a gift. I’m going to use it to tell you the story of my summer. It was a summer that was both wonderful and terribly sad. The sad part is still painful for me to write about, but I will because that’s what writers do. My summer began with the most exciting thing that ever happened on our street. A real-life orphan, by the name of Cassandra Jovanovich, moved in right across from my house. All the best stories are about orphans, and because of Cassandra, this story is no exception. Because of her, I got to write a play, and she starred in it. Because of her, I now know that being an orphan is not exciting, in fact it is the opposite. But you’ll have to read my story to find out why.

The Farmerettes

Second Story Press


A diverse group of young women just out of high school live together during the summer of 1943 on a farm as part of the Farm Services - tending the fields and the livestock - doing the work of the men who are off fighting the war in Europe. We follow the stories of Helene, who sends her wages home to support her single mother; Peggy, a flirt with a secret she is desperate to keep; Binxie, whose rich family doesn't approve of her; Isabel, who pines over her fiance who is off fighting; the mysterious "X", who of all the girls feels most out of place; and Jean, whose family farm has been taken over by this group of "farmerettes." As the Second World War rages across the ocean, friendship, romance, hardship, and heartbreak shape their summer, and no one will be left unchanged.
