✏Girls on Fire Book Summary : Award-winning country chef Camilla Comins learned much of her craft producing gourmet meals on a bed of coals as a young cook in Botswana. She cooked three square meals a day for foreign safari guests, offering everything from frittatas to Chelsea buns without so much as a stove to cook on, let alone an oven. In these pages you will find her tips on how to light and maintain a braai fire in the most common types of braai. She also looks beyond the chop and the wors to more delicate, well-crafted, and healthy options from the fire. Understanding that girls like to get all the work done in time so they can clean up and put on some lipstick before the guests arrive, these recipes are designed so that most of the work is done ahead of time; all you have to do is put the last bits on the fire when guests come. Comins is keenly aware of the need to feed kids and keep them happy at the braai, so there's a whole section on ideas for feeding them and even letting them help. She also tackles the typically bland braai setting where guys hang around in shorts gripping a pair of tongs, and dresses things up with a bit of bunting and some feminine touches.

✏Jennifer Lawrence Girl on Fire The Biography Book Summary : JENNIFER LAWRENCE is the reigning queen of lots of things: Hollywood, the awkward award-ceremony-stumble, and hundreds of priceless BuzzFeed pages - to name a few. She announced herself to the world at a young age in The Burning Plain and Winter’s Bone, gripping dramas set in America’s deprived heartland. Ironic, then, that such a gifted character actress has become a household name through two of the biggest fantasy roles in the business: the deadly shapeshifting assassin Mystique from Marvel’s X-Men series and the gutsy, warlike heroine of Suzanne Collin’s bestselling Hunger Games trilogy, Katniss Everdeen - the Girl on Fire. As Katniss and Mystique, she owns the screen, oozing grace, attitude and menace, re-defining the roles of women in action films as more than ragdolls to be saved by muscle-bound men; this girl doesn’t need saving by anyone. But Jennifer couldn’t be more different off-screen. Always ready with a smile or a quip about embarrassing everyday struggles, she is loved by millions for being a genuinely relatable personality in an industry of preening posers. And make no mistake: she has had every reason to lose her sunny disposition. She struggled early on in her career with a hurtful ‘fat actress’ label in spite of her healthy body type, and suffered public heartbreak with the likes of Coldplay’s Chris Martin. In 2014, she was to suffer the ultimate indignity of having private photos leaked onto the internet for all to see. A lesser girl might have become spiteful, but Jennifer has always emerged with her head held high. This is the first biography of an Academy Award winner, a star of our screens for years to come and a role model for girls and young women everywhere. In every sense, this really is the story of a Girl on Fire.

✏The Camp Fire Girls at School Book Summary : "Speaking of diaries," said Gladys Evans, "what do you think of this for one?" She spread out a bead band, about an inch and a half wide and a yard or more long, in which she had worked out in colors the main events of her summer's camping trip with the Winnebago Camp Fire Girls. The girls dropped their hand work and crowded around Gladys to get a better look at the band, which told so cleverly the story of their wonderful summer. "Oh, look," cried "Sahwah" Brewster, excitedly pointing out the figures, "there's Shadow River and the canoe floating upside down, and Ed Roberts serenading Gladys—only it turned out to be Sherry serenading Nyoda—and the Hike, and the Fourth of July pageant, and everything!" The Winnebagos were loud in their expressions of admiration, and the "Don't you remembers" fell thick and fast as they recalled the events depicted in the bead band.

Visit us online at www.1stWorldLibrary.ORG - - "Oh dear, I do wish some one would invent something new for girls " she exclaimed, although there was no one in the room to hear her. "It seems to me that all girls do nowadays is to imitate boys. We play their games, read their old books and even do their work, when all the time girls are really wanting girl things. I agree with King Solomon: 'The thing that hath been, it is that which, shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done; and there is no new thing under the sun.' At least not for girls " Then with a laugh at her own pessimism, Betty, like Hamlet, having found relief in soliloquy, jumped up from her chair and crossing her room pressed the electric button near the fireplace until the noise of its ringing reverberated through the big, quiet house.
