Requirements: .ePUB reader, 817KB
Overview: What does it mean for a woman to be strong-especially in a world where our conception of a "hero" is still so heavily influenced by male characters like Batman, Spider-Man, and Superman? Geek Girls Don’t Cry explores the subject, offering advice tailor-made for fans of any age. Andrea Towers, who works in public relations at Marvel Entertainment and has written about superheroines for outlets such as Entertainment Weekly, outlines some of the primary traits heroic women can call upon, like resilience, self-acceptance, and bravery, pulling in stories from real-life women as well as figures from the pop-culture pantheon. She also interviews the creators of our favorite fictional heroines, who discuss how they drew from their own experiences to develop these protagonists and how, conversely, their own creations continue to inspire them.

A Raven’s Battle-Cry by Charlene M. Eska

A Raven’s Battle-Cry: The Limits of Judgment in the Medieval Irish Legal Tract Anfuigell by Charlene M. Eska
Requirements: .PDF reader, 1 MB
Overview: In A Raven’s Battle-cry Charlene M. Eska presents a critical edition and translation of the previously unpublished medieval Irish legal tract Anfuigell.
‘A raven’s battle-cry is a misuse of judgments’. Thus begins the medieval Irish legal text Anfuigell ‘Wrong Judgment’ or ‘Non-judgment’, a collection of legal judgments on a variety of topics ranging from the property rights of widows to selling stolen goods to shipwrecks and beyond. The text and accompanying commentary is extant in five main fragments found in three different manuscripts now housed in the libraries of Trinity College, Dublin, and the Bodleian Library in Oxford, with smaller fragments extant in manuscripts in the British Library and Royal Irish Academy Library. Although the text itself is not complete, when one takes into account the legal commentary and glosses on individual words and phrases accompanying the text, Anfuigell and its associated legal material amount to one of the larger bodies of legal matter in the corpus of attested medieval Irish law. This legal tract has never been edited or accurately translated and, as such, it constitutes a legal mystery box for scholars.

Cry Baby by Ginger Scott (.M4B)

Cry Baby by Ginger Scott, Amy Melissa Bentley (Narrator), Alex Kydd (Narrator)
Requirements: M4B Player, 324mb, 11 hours 54 mins
Overview: Tristan Lopez is loyal to his brothers. He doesn’t really have a choice, born into a gang that has a choke hold on every kid who roams its streets. He gave his life to them willingly, knowing if he did, then one day, this kingdom, led by boys drunk with power and ruled by fear, would all be his.

He thought about becoming someone else. It was hard not to crave the life of a regular 17-year-old. It’s the only reason he stayed in school – to pretend. But he always fell back in line.

Riley Rojas didn’t belong in Tristan’s real world. She should have only been part of the fantasy, one of the many faces he got to pretend with amid rows of metal chairs and desks and whiteboards with assignments. But there she was, moving boxes from the back of an old pickup into a house Tristan had shot up on a dare with his friends only a few months before.

Riley took up space on his streets, her loud mouth fearless in the face of the gang leaders who terrified everyone else. She pushed Tristan around on the hard court, and she balled better than his friends – better than him sometimes. She challenged him. She needed him. He liked it. And when her pale blue eyes stared into his, he quit wanting to pretend.

Contains mature themes.
Genre: Audiobook, Romance

After suffering abuse at the hands of a minister in the community, she turns from God, angry and confused that He could allow this to happen.

In A Cry for Justice, Hundley uses her story as a backdrop to show how she found healing from the pain, guilt, and shame of the abuse she endured as a child and how she came to know Jesus in a new way: as a righteous judge who fights for His people and takes upon Himself the burden of our injustices and pain.

The story of Shelley Hundley’s journey from bitter atheist to wholehearted lover of God is unique. Yet what she learned on this journey is relevant to every person who has ever been hurt and has silently wondered, “Who will fight for me? Who can make the wrong things right?”
