Jo Hi Karen,
I'm really sucked into the story at the moment. I'm only a couple of chapters in so far, but being a teacher you've already tapped into one of my biggest teaching fears! It must have been terrible going through that, I think I would certainly have cracked if that happened to me. I love the layout of the book, too, you've done a beautiful and professional job of it!
Jo.
