Sydney is a 15-year-old sophomore who finds herself pregnant, and her boyfriend of four years, Mark, is nowhere to be found. While her world explodes around her, she discovers the people in her life are less than supportive. Her best friend, Emily Hawkins, is more concerned with how Sydney's pregnancy will affect Emily's relationship with her mother than how it is going to change Sydney's life. When Sydney and her mother go to a clinic to discuss Sydney's options, there is one option she will not even consider. She is sure Mark will come to his senses and do the "right thing." Mark has other ideas as to what the right thing is. Sydney is told from the point of view of Emily and Sydney. Emily's strict and uptight mother isn't so perfect after all. As the story unfolds, the skeletons come out of the Hawkins' family closet. Laurie Hooker-Davison earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Eastern Illinois University. She teaches at-risk youth for an alternative education program in Illinois. She went into teaching hoping to make a difference in the lives of her students with offerings of Shakespeare, Milton, and the great American novelists. Instead she found herself teaching sex ed., abstinence classes, character education, and, of course, English. Having the courage to reach her students on their level was the biggest challenge for her in the beginning of her teaching career 14 years ago, but a challenge she accepted; therefore, she learned more from her students than they learned from her. She understands their hopes and dreams because her biggest dream growing up was to become a songwriter. However, she became a teacher in order to spend time with her two children during the summer months when they were out of school. She put aside her goal of earning a living by writing and focused on paying the bills and raising her kids.

Violet Hour LITX

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

From one of our most perceptive and provocative voices comes a deeply researched account of the last days of Susan Sontag, Sigmund Freud, John Updike, Dylan Thomas, Maurice Sendak and James Salter - an arresting and wholly original meditation on mortality. In The Violet Hour, Katie Roiphe takes an unexpected and liberating approach to the most unavoidable of subjects. She investigates the last days of six great thinkers, writers and artists as they come to terms with the reality of approaching death. Roiphe draws on her own extraordinary research and access to the family, friends and caretakers of her subjects. Here is Susan Sontag, the consummate public intellectual, who finds her commitment to rational thinking tested during her third bout with cancer. Roiphe takes us to the hospital room where, after receiving the worst possible diagnosis, seventy-six-year-old John Updike begins writing a poem. She vividly re-creates the fortnight of almost suicidal excess that culminated in Dylan Thomas's fatal collapse on the floor of a Greenwich Village tavern. She gives us a bracing portrait of Sigmund Freud fleeing Nazi-occupied Vienna only to continue in his London exile the compulsive cigar smoking that he knows will hasten his decline. She shows us how Maurice Sendak's beloved books for children are infused with his lifelong obsession with death, if you know where to look. And from James Salter she learns that 'we make our own comfort.' The Violet Hour is a book filled with intimate and surprising revelations. In the final acts of each of these creative geniuses are examples of courage, passion, self-delusion, pointless suffering and superb devotion. There are also moments of sublime insight and understanding where the mind creates its own comfort. As the author writes, 'If it's nearly impossible to capture the approach of death in words, who would have the most hope of doing it?' By bringing these great writers' final days to urgent, unsentimental life, Katie Roiphe helps us to look boldly in the face of death and be less afraid. Biographical Notes Katie Roiphe is an important voice in non-fiction. Her articles have appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Esquire, Harper's and The New Yorker. She has also written widely for the UK press.

LIFE Descending / Ascending Total Recall Publications Inc

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Life Descending/Ascending is a significant work of lyrical, cerebral poetry that reveals seven universal experiences in life, from crime, politics and death to nature, ephemera, creativity, and love. From a clandestine attempt at theft to a final acceptance of life's convoluted and challenging path, in a burst of "Song," Life: Descending / Ascending covers much ground with thistle and wildflowers. Shapiro's second collection of poems is a rare volume that is both celebratory and somberly thought-provoking. It takes a poet, painter or musician to point out the minutiae of details in our human experience, those impressions that most strongly influence us, even in our unawareness of them. Shapiro's poems, in an esoteric but accessible fashion, are signals, symbols, hints at who we really are in this life. PRAISE "In this new volume of poems, Alice Shapiro finds countless ways to show us how we live now. She transforms the present moment into vivid art, blends down-to-earth voices with a poet's sense of sound deftly, and meets the challenge of writing originally about big subjects like politics, death, disease, loneliness, and love. In Crime, Shapiro is guilty of great writing, and her poetry descends into life itself and ascends into rare achievement." --Hans Ostrom, author of The Coast Starlight: Collected Poems 1976-2006 Alice Shapiro's far-reaching second collection of poems, Crime, investigates the lesson that "has no end" and seeks-out philosophical clues that make up our lives during a time of war: an ink-black ocean, paisley dress, chocolate, a door ajar, cup of joe... Where "arguments / lose their salt" fact becomes the closed spaces in a "mind exiled from its mental country" because, as the speaker says, "your truth is my oblivion". Seen from "the pit of a heart" and "heard within our own adventure," Crime journeys forward trying to solve the endless, personal mystery of another day on Earth. Listen: the breath, the yelp, the distant roar, "the future?" --Elena Karina Byrne "I can feel the shiver / of love" in these poems. --Mary Harwell Sayler ALICE SHAPIRO's first collection of poems, CRACKED Timeless Topics of Nature, Courage and Endurance, was published by TotalRecall Press (2009) with a preface by Suffolk L.I. Poet Laureate David Axelrod, and was nominated for a 2010 Pushcart Prize and a GAYA Award (Georgia Author of the Year). Her second collection, LIFE Descending / Ascending published by TotalRecall Press (2010) and a third volume in 2011. She is author of a chapbook, Seasons of the Heart published by Scars Publications (2007). Shapiro is also winner of the Bill C. Davis Drama Award for a one-act verse play (Four Voices) that was produced in New York. It will again be produced by StageWorks, Virginia in 2010. She was judge for Poetry Out Loud 2010 at the regional level. INTERVIEW WITH ALICE SHAPIRO Q: Explain your passion for poetry. A: Writing poetry is a fulfilling activity, like work. With the barest essentials - a pen and paper - I can create a dream world that is stimulating, exciting, sometimes dangerous, always nurturing, and filled with a sense of unconditional love. Poetry is a gift from God that I may share with others. Q: What's the t

Heart of Leadership Business Expert Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This short, easy-to-read fable reveals the five habits that underlie leadership character and that determine leaders success and teaches leaders how to develop these habits.§Like Mark Miller s previous books, this one follows the life, learning, and influence of Debbie Bruster. Here she finds herself mentoring Blake Brown, the son of her former mentor. Rather than answer Blake s questions about leadership directly, Debbie introduces him to other leaders, each of whom shares a unique perspective on what really makes a leader successful. As Blake puts the pieces together, he discovers his problem is not one of skills but of character, that leadership is more about the heart of the leader than the head or hands. In fact, Miller summarized these traits with the acronym HEART: Hunger for Wisdom, Expect the Best, Accept Responsibility, Respond with Courage, and Think Others First. With the help of his new friends and mentors, Blake is able to build a plan to transform his heart. §The good news for all of us: leadership is not just the purview of the few it is within reach for millions of aspiring leaders around the world. This book is the road map they need to get their lives and careers on track.
