This Supergirl Has No Powers
In a school for super powered, supernatural students, one doesn't fit in. She comes from the most prestigious family well known for their superpowers, yet Winter Mangalow is a normal girl. Her family all keep telling her that one day her powers would shine through. Now at the age of seventeen almost eighteen she no longer believes them. Her school life is hell with everyone looking down on her because of her lack of powers. With her Dad the Principal, it meant she couldn't even attend a different school. Both the bane of her existence and the only joy in her day is one Caspian Anderson, the most powerful student in the school. When at school he acts like the biggest, most arrogant jerk she had ever known, but Winter has a secret, she knows Caspian very well. He may not acknowledge her at school, but every afternoon he was all hers. Caspian was the best friend that any girl could want. He was sweet, kind and funny. He never let the fact she had no powers bother him then at all. With the arrival of Zeke Worthington, her life turned into disarray. He understood her; he knew what it felt like to be the outsider. He told her he had come from a place where everyone misunderstood him. Zeke seemed immensely happy to meet Winter, even though he befriended Caspian too. Why Caspian had a problem with it, Winter doesn't understand. It wasn't like he went out of his way to be friends with her during school hours. Even as Winter and Zeke move closer, Caspian becomes unhappy and agitated with her. She can't change things, after all, in the long run, all she can prove is that she has no powers, but maybe she will be surprised.

Personal Spiritual Revival
Many believers have backslidden. Some have turned away completely while others have turned away only in small degrees. Many will honestly say, "I have lost that love which I first had for the Lord." Many are prepared to say that, but they are not willing to take radical steps to put things right. They see the need to repent; they desire to repent, but they do not repent, for they do not pay the price of repentance. We believe, however, that there are some who truly hunger for the Lord and desperately want to come out of their backsliding and walk in close proximity with Him. It is for such people that this book has been written. We pray that the Lord should cause this book to fall into the hands of those who need it and that He should revive such ones and bring them into His glory.
