Author: Jessica Schleider, Michael C. Mullarkey, Mallory L. Dobias Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 06/05/2021

Learn how changing your mindset can change your life! Do you ever give up when things are difficult? Sometimes we all say things like, I'm bad at math, so there's no point in studying or I can't change-so why bother trying. This is called having a fixed mindset. When you have a fixed mindset, you take failure as evidence that you're not good at something. On the other hand, a growth mindset is a way of viewing yourself and the world that says, I may not know how to do this now, but with effort, I can learn. People with a growth mindset believe they can learn from challenges and setbacks-that they have constant potential for growth, change, and improvement. So, how can you develop a growth mindset? Written by experts in growth mindset and neuroscience, this easy-to-use workbook will show you how to change the way you think, so you can change your life. You'll learn powerful, proven-effective skills for coping with difficult feelings-including sadness, worry, and anger. And, most importantly, you'll find the tools you need to transform a fixed mindset into a growth mindset, make change happen, and reach your highest aspirations. If you want to go from No, I can't do it, to Yes, bring it on! this workbook will show you how to build a growth mindset and boost your confidence, so you can be your very best. Look out, world!

Thirty Talks Weird Love

Thirty Talks Weird Love

Author: Alessandra Narvaez Varela Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 22/04/2021

Fans of The House on Mango Street and The House of Spirits will be riveted -Booklist, Starred Review A 13-year-old girl growing up in Mexico is visited by her 30-year-old future self in this powerful Young Adult novel in verse about accepting yourself. Out of nowhere, a lady comes up to Anamaria and says she's her, from the future. But Anamaria's thirteen, she knows better than to talk to a stranger. Girls need to be careful, especially in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico-it's the 90's and fear is overtaking her beloved city as cases of kidnapped girls and women become alarmingly common. This thirty-year-old future lady doesn't seem to be dangerous but she won't stop bothering her, switching between cheesy Hallmark advice about being kind to yourself, and some mysterious talk about saving a girl. Anamaria definitely doesn't need any saving, she's doing just fine. She works hard at her strict, grade-obsessed middle school-so hard that she hardly gets any sleep; so hard that the stress makes her snap not just at mean girls but even her own (few) friends; so hard that when she does sleep she dreams about dying-but she just wants to do the best she can so she can grow up to be successful. Maybe Thirty's right, maybe she's not supposed to be so exhausted with her life, but how can she ask for help when her city is mourning the much bigger tragedy of its stolen girls? This thought-provoking, moving verse novel will lead adult and young adult readers alike to vital discussions on important topics-like dealing with depression and how to recognize this in yourself and others-through the accessible voice of a thirteen-year-old girl. Alessandra Narvaez Varela was born and raised in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. She earned a B.S. in Biology and an M.F.A. in Creative Writing from the University of Texas at El Paso, where she now teaches. This is her debut novel.
