2014 NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST Travis Coates has a good head…on someone else’s shoulders. A touching, hilarious “tour de force of imagination and empathy” (Booklist, starred review) from John Corey Whaley, author of the Printz and Morris Award–winning Where Things Come Back. Listen—Travis Coates was alive once and then he wasn’t. Now he’s alive again. Simple as that. The in between part is still a little fuzzy, but Travis can tell you that, at some point or another, his head got chopped off and shoved into a freezer in Denver, Colorado. Five years later, it was reattached to some other guy’s body, and well, here he is. Despite all logic, he’s still sixteen, but everything and everyone around him has changed. That includes his bedroom, his parents, his best friend, and his girlfriend. Or maybe she’s not his girlfriend anymore? That’s a bit fuzzy too. Looks like if the new Travis and the old Travis are ever going to find a way to exist together, there are going to be a few more scars. Oh well, you only live twice.

Genre: Fiction

Kartoffel Noggin, the fifth installment of the Prairie Preacher series, transports readers from the small North Dakota farming community the Schroeder family calls home to war-torn South Vietnam. The year is 1969, and Andy Schroder, the little boy we first met in Prairie Preacher, is now eighteen and has been drafted by the army to serve in the Vietnam War. During his tour of duty, Andy learns a lot about humanity, morality, and the will to survive. He worries about his family at home, especially his dear Annie who had promised to become his wife. He also befriends a wide variety of characters: Jackson, an Indian boy from South Dakota; Chicago, a young black man from Chicago’s inner city; Swede, a tall kid from northern Minnesota; and Bandaid, the medic from Boston. Together, they face death, fear, and tragedy, and forge a special bond that can never be broken. Andy’s harrowing experiences force him to shed his simplistic attitude toward morality. He discovers that he is capable of things he never imagined, and he witnesses “good guys” succumb to hatred and “bad guys” display love and compassion. He soon realizes that when he returns to North Dakota, he will not be the same person he was when he left. Though he may leave Vietnam, Vietnam will never leave him.

"Tina Sullivan's book,"Nourish Your Noggin," came along at just the right moment. My daughter had suffered two back-to-back concussions. Tina's book provided me with excellent guidance as to what to feed my recovering child and very importantly, what NOT to feed her. "Nourish Your Noggin" also provided excellent brain injury resources, such as websites, brain injury specialists, etc. During such a scary time, Ms. Sullivan's book was a like a soothing balm on a painful wound. I highly recommend this book not only for those dealing with brain injuries, but also for anyone who wants the best nourishment for their child or for him or herself. I learned so much from this highly informative, helpful book!"Rosemary A. In 1990, when I sustained my traumatic brain injury, there was virtually no information about how foods could affect your brain or brain recovery. The hypoglycemia diet was the only one that mentioned how it can affect brain clarity and brain fog. As a board certified health Psychologist and Neuropsychologist, I knew then that what you ate did affect your brain. Tina Sullivans expertise in nutrition as an Integrative Health and Nutrition Coach has provided you, the reader, with a book written with love that provides knowledge of brain injury, how and why food affects the brain and some really wonderful menus." Dr. Diane Roberts Stoler, Ed.D, Licensed Psychologist, Board Certified Health Psychologist, Board Certified Sport Psychologist, Neuropsychologist, Author: Coping with Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Tina Sullivans Nourish Your Noggin could not be a more welcome book for our military medical providers and families. Just shy of 2 million U.S. military personnel have deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan since the start of military operations in 2001 with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) or concussion as one of the most common forms of combat-related injury. Nourish Your Noggin brings a real awareness to TBI, helps you walk through health care choices, and gives you healthy choices for a well-nourished brain. This book is a must read! Colonel (Retired) Mike Santacroce, USMC, OIF/OEF Veteran, Bronze Star Since I started The Healthy Brain Program?? in Canada, people have been asking me about what is the best kind of food for the brain. There is a subgroup of patients who have suffered head injury and are interested in optimizing their brain function and quality of life. To this population, you have delivered a terrific service. Thank you for your dedicated effort on this usually ignored topic. Stephen J.
