Newly Arrived at the Library!


Annie Sullivan
Description: King Midas's gift-- his curse-- almost killed his daughter, and he relinquished The Golden Touch forever. Years later Princess Kora still bears the consequences: her skin shines golden, and she harbors secret powers that are getting harder to hide. Spending her days in the palace, concealed behind gloves and veils, Kora tries to ignore the stares and gossip of courtiers until a duke arrives to court her. Their courtship is disrupted when a thief leaves the treasury depleted and King Midas vulnerable. Kora's ability to sense gold sends her off to track the thief down. But not everything is what it seems-- not thieves, not pirates, and not even curses.

Description: It can be difficult to take each person's ideas into consideration when trying to make a decision. However, respecting different points of view is essential to coming to a consensus. The U.S. government governs by consensus, meaning that it takes into consideration all the relationships between each branch of the federal government as well as the federal government's relationship to each state government. On a smaller scale, students will understand how reaching a consensus can help reach a decision by making each person involved in a decision feel as though their point of view has value.
