Excerpt: ... CHAPTER XVIII The sun shone brilliantly over the vast plain of the River of Hesydrus; and glorified the dark woods and the golden slopes of the mountains, and the flowery fields nestling between them; and lit the trellised groves.and sparkled on the dancing river, and touched with the glamour of its radiance the walls of temples and palaces where the pools of the lotuses and lilies lay, and where the rich rose gardens bloomed and exhaled their fragrance;--and glittered on the grand city of the king, Prophthasia the magnificent, where it lay like a tented snow drift, illimitable in extent, dazzling, and incomparable. The city awakened with the dawn. Long before the dew had been dispersed from the roofs, the inhabitants sallied forth in their holiday attire, and began to swarm in countless multitudes toward the central parts, where the anticipated display of the power and glory of the king was to be enjoyed more thoroughly and continuously than elsewhere. It was the day of the Feast of the Presentation. Upon that day, which was celebrated once in every two years, the tribute of the whole vast kingdom was devoted to gifts of every conceivable and costly nature, which, after being displayed in gorgeous procession before the eyes of the people, were presented to the temples of the gods, and by them absorbed and used until the recurrence of the Feast at the end of the two years following. Every living soul was interested, and to a greater or less extent gratified and made happy, by the spectacle; for every living soul had contributed its share to the cost of it, and to the beauty of its rendering.

Dick Mason, caught in the press of a beaten army, fell back slowly with his comrades toward a ford of Bull Run. The first great battle of the Civil War had been fought and lost. Lost, after it had been won! Young as he was Dick knew that fortune had been with the North until the very closing hour. He did not yet know how it had been done. He did not know how the Northern charges had broken in vain on the ranks of Stonewall Jackson's men. He did not know how the fresh Southern troops from the Valley of Virginia had hurled themselves so fiercely on the Union flank. But he did know that his army had been defeated and was retreating on the capital. Cannon still thundered to right and left, and now and then showers of bursting shell sprayed over the heads of the tired and gloomy soldiers. Dick, thoughtful and scholarly, was in the depths of a bitterness and despair reached by few of those around him. The Union, the Republic, had appealed to him as the most glorious of experiments. He could not bear to see it broken up for any cause whatever. It had been founded with too much blood and suffering and labor to be dissolved in a day on a Virginia battlefield.
NO. MORE. HOMEWORK. That’s what sixth grader Sam Warren tells his teacher while standing on top of his desk. He's fed up with doing endless tasks from the time he gets home to the time he goes to sleep. Suspended for his protest, Sam decides to fight back. He recruits his elderly neighbor/retired attorney Mr. Kalman to help him file a class action lawsuit on behalf of all students in Los Angeles. Their argument? Homework is unconstitutional. With a ragtag team—aspiring masterchef Alistair, numbers gal Catalina, sports whiz Jaesang, rebel big sister Sadie and her tech-savvy boyfriend Sean—Sam takes his case to federal court. He learns about the justice system, kids’ rights, and constitutional law. And he learns that no matter how many times you get knocked down, there's always an appeal...until the nine justices have the last say. Will Sam's quest end in an epic fail, or will he be the hero who saves childhood for all time?
