    Dawn O'Porter

    eBook (Amulet Books, Sept. 9, 2014)
    Renée and Flo are the most unlikely of friends. Introspective and studious Flo and outspoken, wild, and sexually curious Renée have barely spoken in their years of going to school together in Guernsey, a small British island off the coast of France. And yet, when tragedy strikes, it is only wild child Renée, who lost her mother at a young age, who is able to comfort a grieving Flo. The girls form an intense bond that sees them through a host of deeply relatable, wince-inducing experiences—drunken snogging; a séance in which clueless friends offer to summon Renée’s mother; dating a guy for free fish and chips. But toxic mean girls and personal betrayals threaten to tear the girls’ delicate new friendship apart. In this gripping debut, Dawn O’Porter shines an unflinchingly honest, humorous light on female friendship, lost innocence, and that moment when you are teetering on the threshold of adult life.

    This book introduces the history of the invention of airplanes, including Leonardo da Vinci's ornithopter, Joseph-Michel and Jacque-Étienne Montgolfier's hot air balloons, Sir George Cayley and Otto Lilienthal's work with gliders, Orville and Wilbur Wright's first flight, Charles Lindbergh and Amelia Earhart's flights across the Atlantic, and the work of modern record breakers Dick Rutan and Jeana Yeager. Other chapters delve into airplane parts, from wings and ailerons to landing gear and jet engines, as well as how these parts along with concepts such as lift, gravity, thrust, and drag help keep an airplane flying. Fun facts discuss black boxes, autopilot, and the requirements for a U.S. pilot's license. Other sections cover regimes of flight, mach numbers, and different kinds of airplanes, such as monoplanes, biplanes, floatplanes, and sailplanes, as well as the pilots, crews, flight attendants, and airport workers who run this form of transportation. The book also addresses the airplane's impact on society as swift carriers of passengers and products, as well as disease and pollution. Full-color photographs, informative diagrams, glossary words in bold, a graphic timeline, and an index enhance this engaging, easy-to-read text about airplanes, an everyday invention that makes travel faster and puts the world at our fingertips. Checkerboard Library is an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.

    Can you imagine having to drive long distances in a car, train, or bus? Airplane travel changed all that, making travel much quicker, easier, and less stressful. This book addresses the four factors that make it possible for an airplane to fly: weight, lift, thrust, and drag, and details what each of these things means to maintain the safety of the passengers who fly on the over 64 million flights a year in the United States. So, buckle up and enjoy your flight in this wonderful book about airplanes! This book will allow students to ask questions, make observations, and gather information about a situation people want to change to define a simple problem that can be solved through the development of a new or improved object or tool.
