Book Summary :

What do you do when your whole world is blown apart? A seventeen-year-old confronts love, betrayal, and his brother’s illness in this brave, deeply compassionate novel by M. E. Kerr Life is going great for Seaville High senior Erick Rudd. He’s a good student, he has a girlfriend he’ll probably marry, and he’s on a straight path to college. Then his best friend’s girlfriend lets him know she’s attracted to him. Seventeen going on twenty-five, Nicki Marr is blond, green eyed, and gorgeous. Soon, Erick is seeing her on the sly. Guilt ridden over his deception, Erick isn’t prepared for what happens next. He finds out that his brother, Pete, who’s ten years older and lives in New York, is very sick . . . with AIDS. Erick is stunned; he didn’t even know his brother was gay. It was Pete who told a five-year-old Erick that night kites don’t think about the dark, that they’re not afraid to be different. How Erick and his parents deal with Pete’s illness—and how Erick handles his relationship with Nicki—are what make this book so unforgettable. Fearless and profoundly affecting, it will stay with you long after the last page is turned. This ebook features an illustrated personal history of M. E. Kerr including rare images from the author’s collection.

“Classics” (the books you’ve lied about reading). Actual Classics (Greek and Latin books people don’t even pretend to have read). Contemporary fiction (those books people talk about at parties that you’ve "definitely heard of” but never bothered to pick up). Children’s (books that say the most with the fewest number of words, i.e. “The Best Books”). Reference (Those books that were around before Google). From children’s literature, The Very Hungry Caterpillar gets the retitle Eat Until You Feel Pretty. An American classic, The Great Gatsby is switched to Drink Responsibly. And from contemporary fiction, Gone Girl is retitled A Tale of Two Shitty People. There’s something here for every reader.

Book Summary :

John Steinbeck's The Pearl includes many referencesto songs that accompany the perceptions of a centralcharacter named, Kino. It is important to note that thewriter used the term 'song" and as such implied somethinggreater than a single musical note, chord, or phrase. Hewas referring to a streaming complex of feeling tones-- a melody or song. Such streaming influences fromthe unconscious may impact an individual's perception, judgment, decisions, and conclusions often before they areable to explain their reaction. While many can relate to suchexperiences, understanding the source and purpose couldenrich the experience. How the unconsciously inspiredinfluences impact us depends upon our individual adultmaturity, functional style, and attitude. An example of suchinfluences are regularly employed in film and stage plays.To unify an influence among individual audience members, a well developed film or stage play's musical score serves tobring together audience feeling tones to support a scene.It may dramatically increase the viewing experience acrossa wide range of individual styles. This essay introduces theconceptual tools to build an understanding and appreciationfor such influences. The essay could be used as supportingevidence for greater funding for the arts in education.
