I n January of 1941, Margie Bauer is called to active duty in the Army Nurse Corps of the United States Army Reserves, and her mother sadly laments, “You’re a capable girl, but the world’s a dangerous place.” Despite her mother’s concerns, Margie is delighted when she learns her assignment is to Sternberg Hospital in Manila, Philippines–the Pearl of the Orient. She falls in love with the beauty of the island, and the carefree lifestyle of bridge games, tennis dates, pool parties, and dancing under twinkle-light stars with handsome, young doctors. Though rumors of war circulate, she feels safe–the island is fortified, the airbases are ample, and the Filipino troops are training intensely. General MacArthur is upbeat when he announces that everything is splendid.
December 8, 1941, Japanese bombers roar into the Philippines, turning everything in their path to smoldering piles of rubble. Racing to stay ahead of the enemy, the U.S. Army evacuates to the jungles of Bataan where Margie tends to the wounded, sick, and dying soldiers in open-air field hospitals. With the Nips at her heels, she is relocated to an underground tunnel-hospital on the fortified island of Corregidor. Ultimately captured by the Japanese, she is interned in Santo Tomas, a prisoner-of-war camp.
For three years, Margie doubts her survival in the harsh environment where she faces escalating danger, starvation, and loss. Then, an airplane appears in the sky. An American airplane! “We’re here! We’re here!” she calls and waves. But, cruelly, she finds the liberation forces bring with them a danger more brutal than those of her evil oppressors.
A PLEDGE OF SILENCE is a historical novel based on the experiences of the nurses who valiantly served in the Philippines during World War II and became the first U.S. military women to be taken prisoners-of-war by a foreign enemy.

V anessa wrote this book to sort of stop time and give readers a personal and intimate look inside her life filled with triumphs and struggles, though her journals she kept during her teen years.
How many parents say to themselves in frustration, “I don’t know what is going on with my teenager!” or “I wish I knew what they were thinking!”
When you buy this book you will be able to:
• Read about the inner thoughts of a teen and see how life choices were made.
• Learn how battles were picked between mom and daughter.
• See how Vanessa’s mom cultivated a relationship with her, instead of listening to people around her. (Kick her out!)
• Notice how Vanessa hid what was going on in her life. There was a whole other world that was hidden out of sight.
TEENS, how many teenagers feel like they are alone and no one understands them? There are probably quite a few. Vanessa also wrote this book with them in mind so that they can:
• Relate to the struggles of what Vanessa went through in her Jr. High and High School years.
• Know that sometimes, even though problems seem definite and never ending, they really are a temporary situation. And when a situation is seen temporary, well, the dark cloud over head doesn’t seem so dark.
• And of course, how life was as a punk.
Who can read this book? Anyone really. No matter who you are, it’s overall a great read.
Parents will be able to gain knowledge on how to relate to their teen better, and teens will be able to see how life was back in the 1980′s. That problems are problems no matter what year you live in. (The 1980′s or the 2000′s.)
Vanessa didn’t intentionally write the book to be funny or comical. The way her journals were written, is the way it is in the book. Talk about some memories of relationships, romance and adventures with friends! And she is glad to be able to share them with you.

F rom his deathbed, 81-year-old Jack O’Brien reveals to his grandson the existence of a long-forgotten story he wrote as a teenager years earlier while living in Japan. The 16-year-old grandson finds the story in an old footlocker in his grandfather’s attic, and spends days pouring over the real-life account. Set at a U.S. military base in rural Japan in 1948, and playing out against a backdrop of swirling post-War social change, Jack’s Voices of the Locusts tells the story of three families–one black, one white, one Asian. The story also recounts Jack’s love for a Japanese girl, Fujiko Kobaysi, who has been promised in marriage by her parents to an older man. Told in vivid and sometimes haunting detail, Jack and Fujiko are frustrated in their romantic quest by story characters coming to terms (often violently) with the emotional scars of World War II. (The content of this novel depicts violence, and is recommended for mature young adults.)

My name is Zoe Cartwright, I’m twenty-six-years-old, and I survived The Ending.
We’ve been inseparable for most of our lives, and now our friendship is all we have left. The aftermath of the Virus has stranded us on opposite sides of the United States. Trusting strangers, making sacrifices, killing–we’ll do anything to reach one another. Fear and pain may be unavoidable, but we’re strong…we’re survivors. But to continue surviving in this unfamiliar world plagued by Crazies and strange new abilities, we have to adapt. We have to evolve.
