Wow, wow, wow! My friends Mary Alice and Doris highly recommended this book (thank you!)and I must confess it took me toooo long to get to finally read it---along the way---I lent it to a mom and she lent it to her daughter and they CRIED but oh did they love it AND SO DID I!!!! I just love the way Jordan Sonneblick gets it- the right on 13 year old musings of Steven, his fear and anger and his constantly annoying little brother. I couldn't put this book down, polished it off in 2 days and I miss it already. I just loved the way Sonneblick takes leukemia and helps us laugh with Steven's humorous take on girls, Jeffrey, drums and his mom and dad. There were so many times I wanted to read it out loud to whoever would listen---for a great book about family, friends and dealing with cancer- THIS IS A MUST READ! What did I learn---alot about cancer, hospitals, drums and drumming and that being 13 years old has alot of drama goin' on. Now I have to read his other book- The Art of Zen and Faking It.

Deanna Lambert was thirteen when her life changed from good to bad. In a car with her brother's best friend, her dad discovers his little girl is no more. Deanna has a hell of a life since her dad doesn't speak to her anymore- now she is a junior, her brother got a girl pregnant and they live in the family basement with adorable, April and dead end jobs. Deanna has a horrible reputation she has never been able to escape---so what did I learn- Deanna takes a life of lemons and makes it lemonade- she is a girl who wants to escape her life at home for a better life and a nice apartment for her brother. She strives to tackle things deliberately, gets a job and begins to trust HERSELF and be strong, responsible, wanting to do the right things in life and not be like her dad! A great, great book, now I can't wait to read her next one---Sweethearts!

Carl and I concluded our first run of (WSI) Website Investigation: An Introduction to Information Forensics. This is a fully facilitated Moodle based online class. We had a lot of fun and the participants were great. We also radically underestimated the amount of time the course would take. We figured 5 hours in one week. When we polled the class everyone reported taking far more time with each case study.It doesn't surprise me. As I worked through each case I became fascinated with chasing down the evidence. It's like peeling an onion, layer after layer reveals new information. In the end we decided to double the length of the class. So WSI is now a two week course.I'd like to invite you all to the next session of WSI. You can check things out here: WSIThe next class opens on August 11, 2008 and is open for registration right now.
