Editorial Reviews

Timothy R. Jenney
As a thirty-year practicing administrator, I've never before seen such a common-sense approach to leadership. Just when you think you have seen it all, along comes an employee blooper or blunder that makes you scratch your head. This book takes the element of surprise out of dealing with such foolishness. I highly recommend it for all administrators as surprises don't just happen to the inexperienced.
Gregory M. Logan
For anyone in or aspiring to a leadership position in K–12 education, this book is a must-read. It will make you stop and think before you make a quick decision that could be harmful to your students/children and your staff.

Well... we were mates, Prism came back and he acted like I wasnt there. Prism got mad bc she didnt tell him he had another mate. I caught him at Springclan flirting eell... he said he was joking with SnowDream. Half the clan was about to go to war because of him hurting me and Prism.... i said forget it, put it behind me and told the clan to do the same. He is now with Fluttershy.

[Hm. I'm not sure. I think it was entertaining to watch but I have s<_>ex with someone I care for, not to just do it because. Everyone is different and you have all known each other longer than I have.] Seven was already awake and she looked at Silv, grooming his head.

I slammed my hand against the locker door. Spanish class. I looked in the mirror on my locker and applied some pink sparkly lip gloss. Shaylee walked up and said, "Jamie, you okay? You're putting on makeup again." She observed every detail. "Luke," was all l said. She understood and brushed her hand down my hair, red as the hair of Debby Ryan. I grabbed my books and my Spanish beading project. I sat in my seat and looked at Luke. He had matted blond hair and blue eyes, along with several freckles along his nose. I just tried to work on beading little cactus blossoms into my striped woolen blanket without thinking about the cute boy in row four. BRRRING! I headed off, saved by the bell.
