Book Short Summary:

When Sotirios Majoros’s thirteen-year-old daughter asked him a seemingly simple question, “What is life?”, little did she realize the explosion of thoughts and ideas that she would set off in her father’s mind. To answer her question, Sotirios found himself looking back through time to the father of history, Herodotus, and across humanity’s numerous cultures, focusing in particular on how this question is expressed through various pieces of artwork, such as sculptures and paintings. He also looked back through his own life, eventually realizing that lurking beneath his daughter’s question was an even more fundamental question: Who am I? His attempt to answer this question forms the foundation of this book.

Book Short Summary:

All About Me (Love & Hate series #2) I’m the monster, a bloody human incapable of emotion I soon realise that my revenge didn’t make me feel any fucking better about myself, instead it pissed me off to realise that I’m in love with her. Two days later the letter addressed to me arrives in the post and the ground moves beneath my feet, because the whole truth about India is out in the open and the pain punches me so hard that I can’t breathe, darkness crawls through me, sparking all the insecurities and fears about my dead brother back to ugly reality. Then off I go with my apology, trying to fix this fucked up situation but she doesn’t want to listen. Every time I do something the guilt is burning my gut, pushing her further and further away from me. She even goes an extra mile making me feel like a prick and she gets involved with someone else just to get back at me. She pretends that the event in the restaurant didn’t mean anything to her, like she is immune to my actions. India’s pain is raw, deep and whenever I lay my eyes on her I remember the cruel things I’ve done. The next couple of months I focus on getting her back. This is the only thing that matters to me now. I must redeem myself; forget about anger, other birds and parties. India is the only person that I want, I love her and only her but the problem is that she hates my guts, so I’m the last person that she wants. I must prove to India that I’m worthy of her love,

The bubbly diva-in-the-making has got her eye on Flamingo Place's newest hunk and fitness fanatic, Quentin Abrahams. But after weeks of early-morning aerobics, celery sticks, elocution lessons and self-help courses, Chere is beginning to think that all her best efforts are being wasted. The more she tries to be Quentin's dream girl, the less he seems to notice her.

Book Short Summary:

Get Going With Creative Writing is a new, up to date, action packed series of five study books, that encourage children to write. They are aimed at children between the ages of 7 and 11, who have acquired some degree of reading fluency. They provide excellent writing practice for those children preparing to take 11+ examinations or S.A.T.S, but will also benefit other children with special needs, or where English is a second language. These books have a lively magazine type format: featuring short stories to read and a variety of up to date non-fiction texts that will impact young readers and provide starting points for writing. Follow up activities will inspire even the most reluctant writers to write stories, poems, play scripts, diaries, reports, persuasive leaflets, letters and more. More than this, the child will learn writing techniques including: simple, compound and complex sentences – connectives - grammar tips - harder vocabulary and punctuation from our guinea pig guide. The books are suitable for use by teachers in the classroom or parents at home. The themed books can be used in any order, though the subject matter of ‘About Me’ and ‘All About Animals’ may appeal to younger children, who start working through the series. The themed books have been written by a teacher or tutor, have been trialled by the children she teaches and comply with the National Curriculum. This is the first book in this excellent series from Guinea Pig Education.

Book Short Summary:

BOND is a charming, if somewhat self-obsessed, horse who describes his and HIS HUMAN’S journey, charting the highs and lows of equine and human life with humour throughout. His story begins when he is whisked away from his idyllic life at the stud where he was bred, to be marketed from a dressage horse dealer’s yard. After demonstrating his naughty side there, his price is slashed enough for his bargain-hunting human to take a chance on him. He describes her back-story including those angels and demons, legends and idiots, both horse and human, that shaped her to be the sort of person he could train to be his perfect owner. Despite a talent for dressage, Bond is quirky and fails to fit into several stable yards, being asked to leave more than once. Meanwhile, his human struggles through illness and divorce. They travel together both through life and literally when they make the epic voyage in his trusty trailer from Surrey’s smart livery yards to their new Scottish Highland home. Here his human seals her future happiness by marrying, in Bond’s field by the beach. Finally, delighted to discover that they have indeed heard of dressage in the Highlands, Bond returns to the competition arena to win his coveted rosettes.

Book Short Summary:

I, like many others in this country, was raised very, very poor. Thats not really what this story is about. Actually, thats part of it but the constant moving is the real story. I cant remember all the places I have lived. The longest we ever lived in one place is 5 years. Mostly, it was just a few months. The ironic thing is that most of the moving was in California and each place close to the other. They places were far enough apart we had to attend different schools but on the map, they were close. We lived in tents, under a bridge, along the side of the road. The part about being along the side of the road was when I was very small and have no memories of those times. However, the bridge and the tents, I remember. Its an interesting read.

Book Short Summary:

Hailed as “an absolute must-read” (Jean Twenge) and a book that “will change your kids’ lives” (Jack Canfield), UnSelfie by Dr. Michele Borba explains what parents and educators MUST do to combat the growing empathy crisis among children today—including a 9-step empathy-building program with tips to guide kids from birth through college, and beyond. Teens today are forty percent less empathetic than they were thirty years ago. Why is a lack of empathy—which goes hand-in-hand with the self-absorption epidemic Dr. Michele Borba calls the Selfie Syndrome—so dangerous? First, it hurts kids’ academic performance and leads to bullying behaviors. Also, it correlates with more cheating and less resilience. And once children grow up, a lack of empathy hampers their ability to collaborate, innovate, and problem-solve—all must-have skills for the global economy. In UnSelfie Dr. Borba pinpoints the forces causing the empathy crisis and shares a revolutionary, researched-based, nine-step plan for reversing it. The good news? Empathy is a trait that can be taught and nurtured. Dr. Borba offers a framework for parenting that yields the results we all want: successful, happy kids who also are kind, moral, courageous, and resilient. UnSelfie is a blueprint for parents and educators who want to kids shift their focus from I, me, and mine…to we, us, and ours.

Book Short Summary:

In this must-read book for anyone striving to succeed, pioneering psychologist Angela Duckworth shows parents, educators, athletes, students, and business people-both seasoned and new-that the secret to outstanding achievement is not talent but a focused persistence called "grit." Why do some people succeed and others fail? Sharing new insights from her landmark research on grit, MacArthur “genius” Angela Duckworth explains why talent is hardly a guarantor of success. Rather, other factors can be even more crucial such as identifying our passions and following through on our commitments.Drawing on her own powerful story as the daughter of a scientist who frequently bemoaned her lack of smarts, Duckworth describes her winding path through teaching, business consulting, and neuroscience, which led to the hypothesis that what really drives success is not “genius” but a special blend of passion and long-term perseverance. As a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, Duckworth created her own “character lab” and set out to test her theory. Here, she takes readers into the field to visit teachers working in some of the toughest schools, cadets struggling through their first days at West Point, and young finalists in the National Spelling Bee. She also mines fascinating insights from history and shows what can be gleaned from modern experiments in peak performance. Finally, she shares what she’s learned from interviewing dozens of high achievers-from JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon to the cartoon editor of The New Yorker to Seattle Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll. Winningly personal, insightful, and even life-changing, Grit is a book about what goes through your head when you fall down, and how that-not talent or luck-makes all the difference.
