The kidnapping is long past. Janie Johnson can never change what happened to her or to the families that love her. But finally life seems to be settling down for the Springs and the Johnsons. The worst part of this new life for Janie is that Reeve Shields is away at college. Janie misses him terribly, no matter how many e-mails they send each other. As for Reeve, he's finding life at college overwhelming. He goes to work at the school radio station, hoping a late-night gig will give him what he craves--popularity and fame. Reeve gets his chance to be the voice on the radio, and when he tells the most fascinating story he knows, his show becomes a sensation. Reeve is so sure that Janie will never discover what's making his broadcast such a hit that he doesn't stop himself. But what will be the price for Janie? As Janie knew, the facts about the little girl on the milk carton had to be uncovered, no matter how much pain they caused. Now the truth about what Reeve is doing must come out. Whose voice will help Janie when she must face not only her incredible past, but also her unknown future? With the page-turning suspense that made The Face on the Milk Carton and Whatever Happened to Janie? best-sellers, Caroline B. Cooney once again explores the meaning of betrayal, the power of words, and the intensity of love.

This book examines both the development of tutoring as a form of education and its influence on 'schooling.' It offers a review of what past educators wrote on their work, the lives of their students, and the wider socio-cultural ramifications during centuries of tutoring. The role of the tutor and the tutor-governess is reviewed as education at home and the corollary use of tutors in the school. The nineteenth century in Europe and America witnessed the widespread use of tutors, and the gradual adoption of mandatory tax-supported public schooling. The study concludes with a brief review of the contemporary uses of tutoring and an analysis of its historical contributions to Western education.

If you've ever tried to budget but found it just doesn't work, you need to read this book. When it comes to saving and spending money, we're not all the same. Yet for too long, the financial advice world has treated us as if we are. This book will give you the tools you need to make that long-awaited financial breakthrough, allowing you to discover your 'Financial Phenotype': the unique combination comprising your Money Story, your Money Environment, your Money Type and, just as importantly, the habits, triggers and tricks that are right for you. Once you realise that the one-size-fits-all approach to finances you've been trying to adopt doesn't work for most people, it can be liberating. Finally there's a rational explanation for why you've struggled with money-why you're perpetually sabotaging, why you're constantly at loggerheads with your partner or why you just can't seem to be consistent. When it comes to other areas of your life, such as food and exercise, you've no doubt embraced a multi-faceted, often highly personalised approach and you recognise that's important. Why should it be any different when it comes to your finances? That's why understanding your Money Story and discovering your Money Type is the key to financial success.
