The internationally bestselling book that inspired the Pay It Forward movement is now available in a middle grade edition. Pay It Forward is a moving, uplifting novel about Trevor McKinney, a twelve-year-old boy in a small California town who accepts his teacher’s challenge to earn extra credit by coming up with a plan to change the world. Trevor’s idea is simple: do a good deed for three people, and instead of asking them to return the favor, ask them to “pay it forward” to three others who need help. He envisions a vast movement of kindness and goodwill spreading across the world, and in this “quiet, steady masterpiece with an incandescent ending” (Kirkus Reviews), Trevor’s actions change his community forever. This middle grade edition of Pay It Forward is extensively revised, making it an appropriate and invaluable complement to lesson plans and an ideal pick for book clubs, classroom use, and summer reading. Includes an author'snote and curriculum guide.

Anna Clado has endured a lot of blackness in her life. This Vancouver-based single mom was abused by a family member, betrayed by a husband, and devastated by the mental tyranny of a string of bad decisions. But she's not complaining. Indeed, Clado is focused on the silver lining that wraps her dark cloud: namely, the opportunity to share with others the gift of revelation and healing that has since swept the darkness away. Pay it Forward: A Mom's Journey through Healing and Recovery is a highly personal account of Clado's last 25 years and the wrong turns, bad choices and terrible suffering that characterize them. For a long and harrowing stretch, Clado bowed under the weight of negative emotion and clinical depression-but then her life took a turn. Talk therapy, clinical medication and natural remedies helped. But more than anything, it was Clado's authentic return to religion that rescued her from certain despair. Since that time, the transformation to her existence has been profound. By accepting God's presence and declaring it publicly, this Filipina-Canadian felt elevated, empowered, and reborn. It is Clado's wish that other young women enduring similar hardships can enjoy a shortcut to this epiphany through her words and, in turn, keep their families together longer, make smart choices more often, and find their voices more resoundingly. Pay it Forward is both Clado's living testimony to how God delivered her from darkness and an open invitation to others to benefit from the illumination of her mistakes. Filled with fresh gratitude for life's gifts and enough inspiration to go around, Clado genuinely succeeds in paying it forward....
