As the two fall fiercely in love, Jase's family makes Samantha one of their own. Then in an instant, the bottom drops out of her world and she is suddenly faced with an impossible decision.

'The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge' was Rainer Maria Rilke's only novel, and is said to have greatly influenced such other writers as Jean-Paul Sartre. It was written whilst Rilke lived in Paris, and was published in 1910. The novel is semi-autobiographical, and is written in an expressionistic style. The work was inspired by Sigbjørn Obstfelder's work 'A Priest's Diary' and Jens Peter Jacobsen's second novel 'Niels Lyhne' of 1880, which traces the fate of an atheist in a merciless world. The book was first issued in English under the title Journal of My Other Self.

Heteronormativity in a Rural School Community

This book presents an exploration of heteronormative discursive practices in the English countryside. A lesbian teacher describes her experiences in the rural school community in which she lived and worked. She prospered at the village school for almost ten years by censoring her sexuality and carefully managing the intersection between her private and professional identities. However, when a critical incident led to the exposure of her sexuality at school, she learned the extent to which the rural school community privileged and protected the heteronormative discourse. An autoethnographic method of inquiry provides intimate insight which is supported by external data, including email and text message correspondence. As the critical incident eventually became a police matter, police records and evidence from the UK Crown Prosecution Service were sought for use in the research. However, the collection of these data proved problematic, providing an unexpected development in the research and offering additional insight into the nature of rural life. This research offers a vivid insider perspective on the experiences of a lesbian teacher in a rural school community. It examines the incompatibility of private and professional identities, investigates the moral panic that surrounds teacher sexuality in schools and considers the impact of homophobic and heteronormative discursive practices on health, wellbeing and identity. Crucially, this research offers compelling insight into the steps that those in positions of power will take to protect and perpetuate the heteronormative discourse of rural life.

Most people are unaware of just how many children there are with special needs. Perhaps the worst part about this is that most of these children do not seem any different from any other kid outwardly. In this book, the author explores her first hand experience with children whose friends, family, and neighbors have no idea just what is going on in the minds of a child with special needs. By having the children write about their own first-hand experiences in their own voice, the author is shedding light on what is for most people, still a taboo and unknown subject. So, come. Meet the boy next door. He’s just like you and me, only a little different.
