Suitcases, Schools, and Survival
by Stephanie Kauffman

Join the impulsive and adventurous Stacy once again in this sequel to The Girl with Nine Lives. Stephanie Kauffman’s second book, Suitcases, Schools, and Survival shows Stacy as an eighteen-year-old heading off to teach in small, private Christian schools. Her imagination creates many interesting moments with students in and out of the classroom as she teaches academics, and shares her love for God. Readers are invited to travel along with Stacy in her adventures as she journeys across North America to various schools and also experiences her first two international positions. Joyfully working with students, fearing the unknown, and grieving her brother's death all stretch and strengthen her faith. She clings to God through some miraculous incidents. There are many joyous and crazy moments that will keep readers on edge—cars and cliffs, skateboards and skunks, horses and algebra. Fans of Anne of Green Gables may find a kindred spirit in Stacy as her imagination and impulses keep people laughing. An inspiring and thought-provoking read, Suitcases, Schools, and Survival will keep readers engaged and asking for more when this chapter of Stacy’s life closes.

When is the next one out?" -Florida "I can't wait until you get to our stories. Will that be the next book?" -New Zealand "Your childhood enthusiasm showed through in your work with our school." -Russia "I can't believe you're still alive. What comes next?" -Alberta - Do you realize how late I had to stay up? But I couldn't stop. Let me know when book #2 comes out. - Oregon
