A fun chick-lit for teen girls...
Two girls (self-proclaimed as geeks), decide to try-out for the high school cheerleading squad and throw the school's social hierarchy a little haywire. They had no idea cheering & carrying pom-poms would cause such an upset among the geeks and the jocks. A fun and entertaining story.

Neil White, a well to do journalist and book publisher, begins kiting checks and is sentenced to 18 month in a federal prison. But the prison he is sent to is at Carville, Louisiana where the last people in the U.S. with leprosy are housed. He met the most amazing inmates and patients and his view on life was totally changed. A fascinating memoir.
