The protagonist of Tobias Wolff’s shrewdly—and at times devastatingly—observed first novel is a boy at an elite prep school in 1960. He is an outsider who has learned to mimic the negligent manner of his more privileged classmates. Like many of them, he wants more than anything on earth to become a writer. But to do that he must first learn to tell the truth about himself. The agency of revelation is the school literary contest, whose winner will be awarded an audience with the most legendary writer of his time. As the fever of competition infects the boy and his classmates, fraying alliances, exposing weaknesses, Old School explores the ensuing deceptions and betrayals with an unblinking eye and a bottomless store of empathy. The result is further evidence that Wolff is an authentic American master. From the Trade Paperback edition.

I believe that these perspectives should be taught in accordance with the culture and traditions that are also very important in shaping a child's life. A child needs to know what culture he or she represents (no matter what culture you choose) and how things operate within that culture. I believe parenting is a huge part of every culture to provide every child with both nature and nurture they need. These two areas of life (the nature and nurture of a child) are not mutually exclusive as many regard them in this age; they both have to be happening together in the right way. Perhaps you are an immigrant or somebody who finds that life is giving you less than you expect... Did you struggle through your upbringing? Then this book is for you. Author Kemi Obayemi offers a real-life jaunt into her somewhat trying past. Find out how she finds the strength to lead a successful, happy life.

Friends and enemies reunited! A brilliantly entertaining novel from the author of THE SECRET SHOPPER'S REVENGE. Your school days are supposed to be the best days of your life - and Tracey Mortimer has no argument with that. Sixteen years ago she was the most popular girl in school, ruled her own gang, and dated the cutest boy in her year. Now it's all rather different: she's 33, stuck in a dull marriage that's only tolerable because her husband is rarely at home. And although she dearly loves her two children, a life of kids TV and alphabetti spaghetti is hardly exciting... Then Tracey spots an advert from a TV company wanting to make a reality-style show on a perfect school reunion - giving Tracey the chance to re-live the good old days. But not all her old school classmates remember their school days quite as Tracey does. Tracey made Suzanne Sharp's life hell - so what better way to get her own back than revenge, live on national television...

How were your schooldays - happy, horrible, or just a bit crazy? For one teenager, writing in Austerity Britain sixty years ago, they were a mixture of all three, but it was the craziness that stood out in retrospect. Eastwood School, near Glasgow, went through a very lively period in the years following the Second World War. Many of the staff were young men not long back from the forces, often as high-spirited as the pupils they strove to teach. Yet somehow, they earned respect from these rowdy pupils. Relations between staff and pupils were generally good, with the teachers emerging as the real heroes of the piece. Many things were done differently in the days before calculators, computers, mobile phones and iPods. Ball-point pens and television existed, but not many people had either, and even paper was in short supply. Other aspects no doubt remain much the same. All school life is chronicled here: high jinks to alleviate the boredom of classes; the giggling girls and the earnest students; the blushes of embarrassment; the dramas and disasters of exams; hopes and disappointments; crushes on teachers; the excitement of concerts, dances and sports events, which included annual contests of pupils versus staff in hockey, cricket, badminton and tennis. For many, the "Staff Hockey" was the highlight of the school year. Food, of course, was still rationed, and the dinner-ladies did not have an easy life. All these activities, interwoven with the on-going saga of the disintegrating bicycle and keen observation of teachers and fellow-pupils, are linked by one pupil's odyssey from gawky fourteen-year-old "new girl," desperately trying to fit in, to senior student eager to move on to the next stage of life. This account is an edited version of the author's diaries from 1948 to 1951. Irreverent illustrations were added at a later date.

Tyler Brykman returns home form a business trip to find the mutilated bodies of his wife and two children. Morgan Strongbow and Sara Rydell are assigned to the case even though Sara may not be fully recovered from the life-threatening wound she received solving their previous case. Brykman immediately becomes their primary suspect until he tells them he was in Europe. As soon as Strongbow and Sara corroborate Brykman's alibi, they turn their attention to his partner, a manipulative bully named Ronald Mazarovic. When Mazarovic's wife and children meet the same fate as Tyler Brykman's, the police are certain they have their man. The problem is, Mazarovic also has an alibi for the times when both homicides took place. Could the two attorneys have plotted the murders together and acted as each other's alibis? Or might someone be trying to take revenge on Brykman and Mazarovic for an series of events that took place decades earlier when the two were in grammar school. Betrayal. Bullies. Manipulation. Rape. Revenge. Old School Ties has all of the mind bending plot twists that readers of Veiled Threats, the first installment of Lloyd Frankland's Chicagoland Detective Series, have come to expect.

Is much of Christian education in America distinctly Christian? Ron Hoch and David Smith say, "No." Instead it is guilty of having adopted an ideology and methodology that strips it of the right to call itself Christian and the ability to fulfill a truly Christian mission. The authors claim that the fundamentally humanistic ideology of the West conditions and controls much of what is labeled "Christian" education. By talking about the need to integrate faith and learning, focusing on teaching methodology, and operating schools in virtually the same way as government-run schools, many Christian academics betray captivity to the dogma that humans are the measure of all things and need to do what God has already done. As a result, much of what controls the conversation and practices in Christian academia echoes the humanistic arrogance of the West, and offers no substantive alternative to it. In Old School, New Clothes, Hoch and Smith issue a call for Christian academics to own up to their own confession--that all reality was created and integrated by God, damaged by sin, and has already been reintegrated in and by Jesus. Thus the emphasis in Christian education ought not to be what Christian educators are doing to redeem the culture, but on what God is bringing to the Church in order to redeem sinners. Only by recognizing that all human knowledge claims in every sphere are inherently theological and that God is truly seen in and experienced through knowledge of all things, will a distinctly Christian education be forged. Christian education must primarily emphasize the reintegration or redemption of teachers brought through right knowledge of Jesus that comes through every subject discipline and expressed in a life balanced on Sabbath, work, and family.
