Stressed Out!: Solutions to Help Your Child Manage and Overcome Stress is an easy-to-read guide for parents to help their children understand stress, its effects on kids' day-to-day lives, and how to handle it. The book suggests stress management solutions that can be implemented by even the busiest parents and kids, focusing on a variety of common stressful situations that are grouped according to three categories—school, family, or environmental. Strategies include sample dialogues parents can use in conversation with their child and activities to help children gain insight and understanding into the nature of their stress, such as worksheets, role-play scenarios, or children's stories. Designed for maximum accessibility, parents and their children can immediately apply and reinforce the solutions. Inherent in each chapter is the underlying understanding that stress in children is very individual and solutions need to be individualized to fit the circumstances and personality of each child. 2018 NAGC Book of the Year Award Winner

Next thing I know, I'm reunited with my obnoxious uncle, who casually informs me that my long-lost father is a Norse god. And it turns out the gods of Asgard are preparing for war. Apparently, if I can't find the sword my father lost two thousand years ago, there will be doom. Doomsday, to be precise. But first I'm going to die. This is the story of how my life goes downhill from there...
