Somebody just shot my kids!' Diane Downs brought her car to a halt in front of a Springfield, Oregon, hospital, her three gravely wounded children beside her. Thus begins the shocking tale of a truly unthinkable crime that shattered the tranquility of a tight-knit community. As police searched for the 'shaggy-haried stranger' Diane accused of shooting 8-year-old Christie, 7-year-old Cheryl, and 3-year-old Danny in cold blood, a suspicion grew that was even more horrifying than the crime itself: Did Diane shoot her own children?

Book Description :

Since its initial publication and multiple reprints in hardcover in 2005, Teachers Have It Easy has attracted the attention of teachers nationwide, appearing on the New York Times extended bestseller list, C-SPAN, and NPR's Marketplace, in addition to receiving strong reviews nationwide. Now available for the first time in paperback, this groundbreaking book examines how bad policy makes teachers' lives miserable. Many teachers today must work two or more jobs to survive; they cannot afford to buy homes or raise families. Interweaving teachers' voices from across the country with hard-hitting facts and figures, this book is a clear-eyed view of the harsh realities of public school teaching, without chicken-soup-for-the-soul success stories. With a look at the problems of recruitment and retention, the myths of short workdays and endless summer vacations, the realities of the work week, and shocking examples of how society views America's teachers, Teachers Have It Easy explores the best ways to improve public education and transform our schools.

Book Description :

Sourena Dreams Big and Strives to Achieve “What's the big deal?” you may ask. “A lot of people dream big and strive to achieve their goals.” But you haven't met Sourena. Three decades ago, Sourena Vasseghi was born with severe cerebral palsy—a handicap that's limited his physical abilities but not his dreams and determination. “Luckily, the dreamer inside me knew there was an alternative to blaming my handicap. But like a needle in a haystack, I had to find it.” That, he believed, would give him everything in life—money, career, wife, kids, and a sense of accomplishment. Yet Sourena's profound physical limitations—including a speech impediment that makes his words difficult to understand—rendered his prospects slim. Despair crept in. Not surprisingly, part of Sourena wanted to stuff his dreams into a closet. Thankfully, his inner wisdom and resolve triumphed. He found that “needle” for himself—and potentially for you, too. Sourena realized that “anytime I use my handicap as an excuse for not achieving my dreams, I lose control. It's as if I'm asking the world to take care of me because I don't want to make the right sacrifices.” Since then, the activity behind this belief has fueled Sourena's success as an author, speaker, consultant, and a husband and father. As you strive to manifest your dreams, what sacrifices do you refuse to make? Follow Sourena's example in Big Dreams Take Small Sacrifices to strip away your excuses and embrace what he now knows—that sacrifice is payment for a dream.

Proving once again that Kate Atkinson is "one of the finest writers working today" (The Chicago Tribune), A God in Ruins is the triumphant return of a modern master.

In this provocative and eye-opening classic of investigative journalism, the #1 New York Times bestselling author and “America’s best true-crime writer” (Kirkus Reviews), Ann Rule, explores the nearly twenty-year long search for America’s most prolific and horrifying serial killer. In 1982, the body of Wendy Coffield is discovered floating near the sandy shore of Washington’s Green River. Authorities have no idea that this tragic and violent death is only the beginning of a string of murders that will rock and terrify the Seattle area for two decades. With her signature riveting prose and in-depth research, Ann Rule takes us behind the scenes of the search for the Green River Killer, a terrifying specter who ritualistically killed young women and eluded authorities for years. From seeking the help of incarcerated serial killer Ted Bundy to Ann Rule’s horrifying realization that the killer she was writing about had attended her book signings, Green River, Running Red is the suspenseful and unforgettable “definitive narrative of the brutal and senseless crimes that haunted the Seattle area for decades” (Publishers Weekly).
