Still, Milagros loves her small island in the Caribbean, and she finds comfort in those who recognize her special gifts. But everything changes when marauders destroy Milagros’s island and with it, most of the inhabitants. Milagros manages to escape in a rowboat where she drifts out to sea with no direction, save for the mysterious manta rays that guide her to land. In stunning prose,Meg Medina creates a fantastical world in which a young girl uncovers the true meaning of family, the significance of identity, and, most important, the power of a mother’s love.

    Meg Medina

    Preloaded Digital Audio Player (Brilliance Audio, March 12, 2013)
    One morning before school, some girl tells Piddy Sanchez that Yaqui Delgado hates her and wants to kick her ass. Piddy doesn't even know who Yaqui is, never mind what she's done to piss her off. Word is that Yaqui thinks Piddy is stuck-up, shakes her stuff when she walks, and isn't Latin enough with her white skin, good grades, and no accent. And Yaqui isn't kidding around, so Piddy better watch her back. At first Piddy is more concerned with trying to find out more about the father she's never met and how to balance honors courses with her weekend job at the neighborhood hair salon. But as the harassment escalates, avoiding Yaqui and her gang starts to take over Piddy's life. Is there any way for Piddy to survive without closing herself off or running away? In an all-too-realistic novel, Meg Medina portrays a sympathetic heroine who is forced to decide who she really is.

This book was written to encourage young people to do more, to do well in school in order to make big dreams and to make those dreams come true. Yes it is possible to be a millionaire at the age of 19 years old; It is also possible to make a million dollars out of a bunch of coat hangers and a simple idea.His daughter graduated high school in the top 10% (2015), with numerous awards, certifications and 2 credits shy of getting her associates degree. She has always been a straight 'A' advance class student who plays on the high school band (Alto saxophone), is learning to play the piano, plays on a soccer team and in the summer is invited to programs to earn college credits.

He is also taking virtual school over the summer.This book starts with the idea that ‘learning’ is important, that it is the first step in becoming and being successful in life. As a parent the author brings to these pages the tools, the rules and the mindset that children need if they want to succeed; to achieve the dream they have. This book is not about only making money – it is about how to become successful. Success is not about money, about being ‘Rich’, but being successful does create opportunities for large sums of money.Doing well in school is the first step toward having success in life. Success is about dreaming big and reaching your goals. Like one young man who started working out of his parent’s kitchen when he was only 15 years old. With his success he has invested in various charitable projects, of which one runs tea parties for lonely elderly people who live alone or in care homes. The company reports to have run over 120 such events between March 2008 and March 2009, with the largest events attracting over 600 guests. The company organizes various ‘knitathons’, encouraging the public to knit for good causes. In 2008, several thousand knitted squares were collected, sewn into blankets and sent to orphanages in India.Children can be successful; all they need is the right mindset and the tools to achieve their dreams.

  • Merci Suárez se pone las pilas

    Meg Medina

    Audio CD (Dreamscape Media, Oct. 13, 2020)
    Merci Suárez sabía que el sexto grado sería diferente, pero no tenía idea alguna lo diferente que resultaría. En primer lugar, Merci nunca se ha parecido a los otros niños de su escuela privada en la Florida, porque tanto ella como Roli, su hermano mayor, son estudiantes becados. Ellos no tienen ni una casa grande ni un yate elegante, y tienen que desempeñar servicios comunitarios adicionales para compensar por su matricula gratis. Así que cuando la mandona de Edna Santos se fija en el nuevo niño que la escuela le ha asignado a Merci como su “amigos de arco iris,” Merci se convierte en el foco de los celos de Edna. Las cosas no andan muy bien en su casa tampoco: Lolo, el abuelo de Merci, su aliado de mayor confianza, ha estado actuando un poco raro últimamente: se le olvida cosas importantes, se cae de la bicicleta y se enoja por cualquier cosa. Nadie en la familia le ha dicho a Merci qué es lo que le aflige, así que Merci tiene que lidiar sola con sus preocupaciones, a la vez que se siente aislada en la escuela. En una historia sobre los ritos de la pre-adolescencia, llena de humor y sabiduría, la galardonada autora Meg Medina llega al fondo del desconcierto y del cambio continuo que caracterizan el último año de la escuela elemental, así como de los lazos inquebrantables de la familia.
