Would You Exchange Your Life with Someone Else?

You see them every day, yet you rarely know they exist���faceless people leading quietly desperate lives. Unremarkable, they merge with the background camouflaged by their own colorless existence. They come and go, unnoticed by society at large.

As a public educator for 38 years, I saw a number of students who fit this description. Often lonely and friendless, they find it hard to fit in. Such stud Read more of this blog post »

Edison Jones and the Anti-Grav Elevator by Michael Scott Clifton
"I was initially worried that Edison Jones and the Anti-Grav Elevator would be too preach-y or lesson-y of a kid’s book. (I don’t read a lot of YA\Middle Grade.) How wrong I was! It was a bit slow to start for me, but once the action picks up, I was h" Read more of this review »

Jane Thomson Hi Michael,

One book you might like to read, considering your profession is, One Breath Away, by Heather Gudenkauf. It's a tightly written suspense about a school hostage-taking. (actually, a whole class)...it is written mainly from three points of view. I couldn't put it down.
Cheers,
Jane
