Description

Would you believe ... ?





A woman invests in stocks and makes $22 million -- then donates almost all of it to a university!





A Japanese guard helps a prisoner of war survive World War II because of the shared love of an opera aria.





The daughter of a grieving widow takes her mother on a vacation cruise -- and both women unexpectedly find romance on board.



Beyond True Stories, by Sandra Heyer, continues and expands the True Stories tradition with eight thematic units, each based on a real-life, human-interest story. Each unit opens with A True Story in the News, followed by readings and activities that explore the theme in the story. Beyond True Stories is a book students won't want to put down.
