The ten year class reunion of Rockland High school is being held in December Shelby and Adira can’t wait to attend, but for different reasons. For Shelby it’s a chance to see her high school sweetheart and help him realize what he missed out on. For Adira it’s a chance to show off her lavish lifestyle and make everyone envious of her. Shelby wasn’t as popular as some at Rockland High but she did have some social status there. The females hated her because the boys loved her. Shelby normally got what she wanted and didn’t care who she had to hurt in order to get it. When she first laid eyes on Calix she knew that she had to have him. He was the most popular boy at school and also the most handsome. Shelby had her and Calix’s life planned out, but there was just one problem with her fairytale, her prince charming is with Adira. Timothy loves Shelby but not the way that a man should love his wife. He needed Shelby and she would find out just to what capacity the night of the reunion. Timothy knows that he wasn’t his Shelby’s first choice but hell she wasn’t his either. He was anticipating the reunion just as much as she was he had some things he needed to et off his chest. Adira and her husband, Calix was Rock Land high school’s most popular couple. So, it was only natural that they ended up getting married and having kids together.
Along the way, Adira realized that the most popular couple wasn’t as great as everyone thought. Calix was a serial cheater and the only way to have a little control and order in her household, was to accommodate his needs.
Calix suggested monthly hall passes to help him deal with his issues of infidelity. Completely against the idea, but wanting to hold on to her marriage, Adira agrees.
Although, it was a hard pill to swallow, Adira got over it by redeeming her own hall pass. The date of the next monthly hall pass falls on the night of their tenth year reunion.
Adira fears that her husband, Calix will use his hall pass to sleep with his ex from high school that just happens to be her arch nemesis, Shelby and that a secret she has been hiding for months will be revealed. A night of remembrance, bonding, and happiness creates an aftermath of pain and betrayal as secrets are revealed, and rules are broken. Adira and Calix marital woes becomes prevalent and Shelby and Timothy façade of a marriage slowly begins to unravel.
Fifty years ago, Milton Friedman had the ground-breaking idea to improve public education with school vouchers. By separating government financing of education from government administration of schools, Friedman argued, parents at all income levels would have the freedom to choose the schools their children attend. Liberty & Learning is a collection of essays from the nation's top education experts evaluating the progress of Friedman's innovative idea and reflecting on its merits in the 21st century. The book also contains a special prologue and epilogue by Milton Friedman himself. The contributors to this volume take a variety of approaches to Friedman's voucher idea. All of them assess the merit of Friedman's plan through an energetic, contemporary perspective, though some authors take a theoretical position, while others employ a very pragmatic approach.

This complete two-volumes-in-one book details the Voyage of the Jeannette and contains the ship and ice journals of George W. De Long, Lieutenant-commander U.
S.N. and Commander of the Polar Expedition of 1879-1881 (along with the original sketches and maps). This is a first-hand true account of the 1881 loss of USS Jeannette while exploring the Arctic ice. Jeannette, with a crew of 33, collapsed and sank under surging ice in the summer of 1881. Her crew, commanded by George W. DeLong, took to the ice dragging three small boats. When open water was found, the boats were used to sail to the Lena Delta of Siberia, 700 miles distant. DeLong commanded a boat of 14 total crew members, Executive Officer Charles W. Chipp's boat's crew was 8 total crew members, and Engineer Officer George W. Melville's boat had 11. Chipp's boat was lost at sea with all hands. Engineer Melville's boat landed in the southern delta, and DeLong's boat came ashore farther to the north on 17 September 1881.Melville quickly found aid, as did the two hardiest sailors of DeLong's crew soon after. The 12 remaining, including DeLong, perished from starvation or exposure (luckily his journal contained in this book survived to provide a detailed account). Thus of the original 33, 20 did not survive the expedition. This historic voyage is also retold in the recently published bestseller "In the Kingdom of Ice: The Grand and Terrible Polar Voyage of the USS Jeannette" by Hampton Sides. This pre-1923 publication has been converted from its original format for the Kindle and may contain an occasional defect from the original publication or from the conversion.
Jeremiah Lynch was a businessman (and former San Francisco politician) who went to the Klondike in 1898, two years after gold was discovered.
He describes his three years in and around Dawson City as a miner and a merchant. His narrative is an articulate and highly colorful observation of the characters and the social environment of gold rush Dawson. The town is the real protagonist in this story. Fans of Northern Exposure will understand.
