My Sister, the Serial Killer | Oyinkan Braithwaite

Mehso-so

While I enjoyed reading this novel, I was really let down at the end. There were some unanswered questions for me; therefore, I feel like Braithwaite needs a sequel.

What a great way to teach history to younger students. This text is informative and the illustrations are very descriptive. Don Brown tells the story of a turbulent time in history, The Dust Bowl. In this quick read, students will learn vocabulary terms, such as The Dust Bowl of the Continent, The Dirty Thirties, dusters, black blizzards, and dust pneumonia. These young minds will learn about the causes and effects of this catastrophic period.

While flying to England, Gideon meets Mrs. Jones, a cryer; Lola, a chatterbox; and indirectly, a mysterious man who has business with him. He is also looking for Thelma, his mother, and Arizona, a woman from his past and a character from Thieves' Paradise. These characters take Gideon on a roller coaster ride, which stops unexpectedly and leaves readers rushing to purchase or check out the sequel. Read the full review on my blog.

Based on an Irish tale, a Ghost Story will make its readers cringe, think aloud, and think twice about being in a cemetery or eating oatmeal. When reading this Irish folklore, I immediately liked Kate Culhane because she is strong, mentally and physically. She proves this when she accidentally stumbles upon a ghost's grave.

I guess Matt gets sick of eating Burger Boy burgers because I bring them home all the time. This reminds me of college. I ate chicken for four years, seven days a week, three times a day in every way that chicken could be cooked. To this day, I will NOT eat chicken unless I‘m really hungry.

rretzler For me it was Hot Dogs after my father died when I was in 4th grade. My mother was a teacher and a coach and we ate anything that was quick - which on weeknights was Hot Dogs for almost an entire year. It took me decades before I would eat them again. Currently, my 17 yo will only eat chicken. He eats it in a variety of ways, but as you are well aware, one can only eat so much 🐓. 😝🤣 6mo
ProfReader I am glad to know that I am not by myself. People look at me crazy when I say that I don‘t eat chicken. My mother told me that when she was in college, she ate red beans and rice just like I ate chicken. 6mo
OrangeMooseReads My grandpa would grudgingly eat chicken but hated it. He grew up on a farm with chickens. He also wouldn‘t eat bananas or anything grape flavored. 6mo

In their new world, Rick Grimes‘ group is learning that nothing and no one can be taken for granted. They are appreciative for the smallest things, such as showers, commodes, beds, food, and even space. In these trying times, tempers flare, teenagers know everything, and decisions and actions are questioned. Logic is what this group needs the most, especially when Herschel tells them that it is time to leave. Find out how they manage in Volume 2.

When it comes to education, it seems like the powers that be won‘t spend money on the necessary things...smh

Slajaunie The federal government needs to step out of education. The states need to take complete control. Education is in a bad place right now. We need money which we don‘t get. Teachers and principals need to be allowed to do their job. Testing needs to fade into the background where it belongs. I could go on and on. I Am a TEACHER! The government needs to shut up and let us handle our business. Hot button issue for me. 😡😫😤 6mo
jb72 @Slajaunie There is way too much standardized testing in schools. They need to let teachers get back to teaching. The only thing the federal government needs to be doing is handing over money so students can get a well rounded education. 6mo
ProfReader I, too, am a teacher, and I totally agree. I am sick of this mess; we were promised a raised last year but didn‘t get it. Now, this topic is back on the table. Well let‘s just be real. My district has been in the news every other day; it seems like...talk about frustration. 6mo
CMB I taught for 37 years, loved my district, was the “evil” union president for 14 years, and my former superintendents are still my dear friends. Politicians have damn near destroyed public education, a cornerstone of this republic. They mandate tests and the testing companies contribute to their political coffers. Talk about corruption...aargh! And, I‘ve had the delightful opportunity to deal with our ALEC-influenced legislators. (edited) 6mo
Slajaunie Agree with all of you! @jb72 @ProfReader and especially with you! @CMB 6mo
