But all the kids are wearing them! Any child who has ever craved something out of reach will relate to this warm, refreshingly realistic story. Features an audio read-along. "I have dreams about those shoes. Black high-tops. Two white stripes." All Jeremy wants is a pair of those shoes, the ones everyone at school seems to be wearing. But Jeremy’s grandma tells him they don’t have room for "want," just "need," and what Jeremy needs are new boots for winter. When Jeremy’s shoes fall apart at school, and the guidance counselor gives him a hand-me-down pair, the boy is more determined than ever to have those shoes, even a thrift-shop pair that are much too small. But sore feet aren’t much fun, and Jeremy comes to realize that the things he has -- warm boots, a loving grandma, and the chance to help a friend -- are worth more than the things he wants.
Do your feet get tired and ache? Do you enjoy throwing your shoes off after a long day at work? Think twice next time, because you may regret it.

People at certain points of life all over ask questions of wonder—who, how, when, why, or what? There have been thousands of questions from billions of people on or of life, from individual questions to the world to the universe. Some have been solved, while others continually seek out answers. We as a whole intuitively ask more all the time. We all enter the same way, just in different places and times. It proves we’re all connected in some sort of way whether we meet or not. Our existence shows we are here to experience the different highs and lows in between. How that’s executed or accomplished is different for everyone. One needs others to assist us in achieving it or them. We do the same for others in return. We may or may not enjoy the lesson that comes from it. We may not even understand any of it. We may not see value in it, but later we do. Experiences may prove different what we may have learned or believed on the paths we chose. We can be humbled, and we can also do great things. The definition of success is different for each. The definition of right and wrong is the same. We’re all energy. We absorb the energy around us if we allow it to with the influences that create it. These can be fantastic and paralyzing at the same time depending on the many factors that allow it manifest. They are created by beliefs, emotions, and experiences. Whatever allows us to exist is seen as different for anyone. It allows us to make and learn from mistakes if we choose to. It allows us to create our own fate, destiny, and lives with the limited and unlimited resources we are given. The definition of life and success in it is different for anyone you ask. The reality in how one sees and values it is different too. Jack Connor is no different than anyone else. At least he did. Through his experiences he’s had, finding the difficult lessons in it has blessed him with a new outlook toward it. Many things happened that he had no control over. Some experiences could’ve been avoided all together, but Jack chose not to let that happen. He made mistakes and then more. He lived in denial based on fear. Things had to happen for the possibility of change. Some made sense while others didn’t. His actions effected far more than he knew. The lessons learned and the highs and lows of it still continue because of it the decisions he chooses to see life in. Finding hope when there was none, being humbled and rising back. Miracles happening. Finding a new way to live allowed him being placed where he was needed at the right time. It’s something he never expected. There was no guarantee either. But neither was he. What happened to him has happened to others before and will happen to others again. If you allow it to. For whatever reason, one change lead to another which allowed for him to see the perception of how his life was and the place he was placed in for a moment of time. The results of this may never be known fully or until time allows it to. It may take a lifetime or more? And like everything else, the only question he has is what’s next? And why, how, who and when?
This is a biography of my life story. This book will keep your attention and is very captivating. It is unbelievable some of the things that I have been through. I think it will make you appreciate the finer things of life. It also will make you aware of a lot of thing you thought you knew but didnt. I hope that you enjoy reading this book as much as I have in sharing my life story with you. God Bless
Footprints all around the corpse; but they were all prints of the left foot!ExcerptInspector James Hall was, like his office, a classical example of unadorned simplicity. Hall didn't like puzzles and he didn't like details. Puzzles troubled his solid head, and right now, as he slammed down the phone, the toughest problem he'd faced in months sent three thick fingers scratching over his bald head. He sat very still for a few minutes, shaking his head back and forth like an angry bull. Then his thick fist crashed down on the desk top in sudden decision. When he picked up the phone once more there was a suggestion of a twinkle in the dark, deep set eyes. "Hello! Sergeant? Listen! Send in Robert Case. Yes, the little wonder boy of the detective squad." He listened impatiently as the receiver chattered back at him. His jaw hardened into set lines. "Yes! Well, I think we've got something here that will keep little Robert Case busy for a while before he solves it. Quite a while!" Inspector Hall dropped the phone and buzzed the main desk. Over the communication set he ordered a squad car to stand by. Tall and homely as a bald eagle, Hall unfolded himself from the chair and jerked on his overcoat. He was just pulling the battered felt down where it would conceal his lack of head shrubbery when a light knock sounded on the door. "Come on in, Case," he shouted. The door opened and a small, dapper individual entered. Robert Case had an innocent face that made him look like a choir boy who had just left church. He approached Hall with short steps and Hall was suddenly conscious of how carefully polished Case's shoes were in comparison to his own well worn boots.

Samantha Wynne-Rhydderch’s debut collection for Picador introduces a young poet with a remarkable range of imaginative tactics at her disposal, and seems to announce not one, but several new voices. Not In These Shoes is an act of uncanny ventriloquism, and a distinct spirit haunts each of Wynne-Rhydderch’s meticulously drawn spaces. Whether conjuring the interior of a toy snowstorm, a flooded valley, a woman in a backless dress, a ship’s figurehead or a matador in a hotel room, Wynne-Rhydderch finds a voice that perfectly commands our attention. ‘A major voice in contemporary poetry. Razor-sharp wit, a singing vitality of language, and remarkable technical prowess' Penelope Shuttle 'Mysterious and erotic, heartfelt, sophisticated and immensely readable - there's not a page that doesn't stir the imagination. It's a book I've been waiting years to read' Robert Minhinnick
