I'm so happy because she's written other books and its so lovely to find a writer you love who has a backlist' Marian Keyes Willow and Holly are identical twins. They are everything to each other. Holly calls Willow her rock, her soul mate, her other half. And Willow feels the same about Holly. They are alike in every respect except one - Willow is afraid on the inside. And all because of a secret - one that binds the sisters closely together and yet has meant their adult lives have taken two very different paths. Willow often feels there are large parts of her missing, qualities she only knows she's lacking because she sees them in her sister. For a very long time Willow has felt separated from Holly by one terrible moment in time - a moment that meant Willow's life was never the same again. And when the past catches up with her, Willow realises it's finally time for her to face her fears, and - with Holly's help - learn to laugh out loud once more...

Book Life Lessons from My Five Year Old

Download or read Life Lessons from My Five Year Old PDF, written by Kimber Lynne and published by iUniverse. This book was released on 2013 with total page 95 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Life Lessons from My Five-Year-Old shares the journey Kimber Lynne took to remember what matters most in life. Her “aha” moment came when she realized that her young daughter could save her from herself and show her what really matters in life. Once she realized this, she began to enjoy the extraordinary moments that happen every day instead of trying to anticipate what the future might bring. It is through teaching her daughter—and being taught by her in return—that she has been able to change her view of life’s important moments, value, and fears and learn to live more in the present. Her journey also included recognizing and overcoming some of the negative and destructive behaviors that have formed her own beliefs and making the necessary changes in her life so she would not pass negative traits on to her daughter. The first lesson she learned from her five-year-old was that all of the risks and emotional hurdles can help move you from the off-ramp back onto the main road moving forward. Her journey of becoming a parent to her little girl definitely moved her in the right direction. Life Lessons from My Five-Year-Old is about recognizing the fact that we need to trust ourselves and our instincts because we probably already know the answers. Doing the work to get to know our inner self a little better can certainly help kick-start uncovering our truth and passion.

Download or read Life in School PDF, written by Martyn Hammersley and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2020-09-10 with total page 284 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: There can be little doubt that pupils’ own interpretations of what happens in their schools represent a crucial link in the educational chain. We need to understand how pupils respond to different forms of pedagogy and school organization, and why they respond in the ways they do, in order to increase the effectiveness of our schooling. In the ten years prior to first publication ethnographic studies of pupils in schools had increased in number and importance. They had come to represent a leading area of inquiry which is still of relevance to practising and student teachers today. However, this material was not easily accessible, being widely distributed across educational and sociological journals and books. Originally published in 1984, this book collects together significant contributions to the field in a single volume, and will still be of relevance to practising and trainee teachers, and students of sociology and education.
