I know they can join minds at intimate times too. I'm looking for 2 books I read in prison. The groom gets all the women of the town to make her a wedging quilt from odd pieces of cloth. Anyone knows these books. I can't remember the names or author. I remember reading a book about a girl who lives in a "perfect world" where the government decides everything for you.
The whole place is surrounded by wall panels, in a globe shape. Her job is basically sitting in a chair and clicking any panel that flickers. One day she sees a panel flicker a bit outside of her designated zone, but when she checks it out something happens and she gets a warning. If you get 3 warnings, you are kicked out of the place.
Her mother was kicked out of the place a long time ago. She remember that she got one strike because she was on the swings and went too high. The flickering panel scenario gives her 2 warnings in total. At 18, all of the warnings are removed and you get a second chance. At 18, you also determine your future husband. You're also not allowed to wear white unless you work for the government. She finds her mother's wedding dress and wears it to the place where she will find her new husband, and there's two pictures that flash for her name.
Then rebels come and attack the place and grab her but she escapes. I don't remember much after that except she somehow gets out of the utopia and finds out that people live outside the little bubble she's lived her whole live. She doesn't trust anyone, there are bombs, people die, she goes back into her old bubble home. The master of the whole bubble place comes to her and he's fishy. Her mom is actually alive and she is the master of the rebels. Her mother wants her to take over, she says no, mother goes crazy, and she kills her.
The girl is obviously shook and she ends up in a box that messes with her mind and actualizes her nightmares. There a boy involved too, idk how though. I know it's messy and all over the place, but that's what I remember. If anyone knows what this is or if it sounds familiar to you, please let me know!

Looking for a book that I read in my sophomore or Jr year of high school. All I can remember is it started in a village that was shot down, but a few escaped including this boy.

I'm pretty sure it took place in Africa and is a non-fiction book. Actually he became the administrator of the hospital and his book is a series of stories about all of that. He tells us about one client whom rallied in the face of impossible odds again and again and again to reach adulthood.
He spoke about having lifelong relationships with his very injured patients. He spoke about fund raising. All the special needs a hospital like his had and how he had to go about getting those needs met. He spoke about being mentored by the previous Administrator not really knowing what he was walking into. He spoke about it being a calling not a job. At the end of the book was a chapter advising parents on what, where and how to get what they needed for their children should the need arise.
An awesome book I lent to my client that was not returned that I need to repurchase so I once again have it in my library. Can any of you out there help me locate this amazing book? I would be so appreciative. I do not know the name of the author, title or publisher. I am so sorry. It is poignant and contains a series of stories of different situations and miraculous clients who survived insurmountable odds. He spoke about seeing every client holistically by looking ahead to where that client might be at age 18 or 25 or He spoke about having a lifelong relationship with each client that stepped through their doors.
He spoke about one client who had horrific medical issues which required inventive surgical interventions. He spoke about his fundraising efforts. About one donor whose child he had helped and how he gave back to the hospital. He spoke about the hospital never having enough funds for what they needed. He spoke about the previous administrator being his mentor. I lent this book to one of my clients and never got it back. I so appreciate your help in aiding me to find this information out.

One key person in the pop-up book phenomenon is Waldo Hunt, who was the first to develop these books in the United States.

When the icon appeared in the story, the reader could press a button on the side to hear the sound effect.
These were programs that put books on the computer screen, enabling children to click their way through various words and pictures in the story and have it come alive.

The newest advance in interactive children's books reflects the recent popularity of Amazon's Kindle. There are now a plethora of e-book sites that place children's picture books, along with LeapFrog-like sound effects and word pronunciation, completely online-often for free.
