Theresa and Brianna later find out that Brianna had to repeat second grade. Theresa was heartbroken by this and had no idea what to do. Theresa starts getting together with some of her friends and talks about her problem. Little did she know her friends were also having the same problems with their children. That’s when she realized how much talking to other people can help solve the problem with their advice and experience. She then created a support group where parents can share their problems and get help from the other parents. After a while more and more people were showing up until she would get 20 to 30 people a class. Theresa then started believing in herself knowing with the help of these people she was capable of helping her daughter. Brianna is now doing great academically and socially now because of this support. Lastly, Mia talks about Baakir’s story which is about his business and the community he
You have to contact with the parents. It’s tied to your APPR, you know (with a threatening tone).” I said, “Mrs. Thiam, I don’t know why you have an impression that I don’t communicate with the parents. I had meetings with Paris’s grandmother and Jayjuan’s mother; I spoke to Noah and Titus’s mother, Jamier’s mother and sent a letter to Russel’s mother, too (just to give Mrs. Thiam some examples). Evan’s problem has just started a couple of weeks ago.” Mrs. Thiam said, “You know why? It’s because of Russell. Evan sees what Russell does and Evan thinks it’s ok to do the same. So, you are contacting the parents, that’s good.” I said, “Yes, by the way Mrs. Thiam, I am the one telling students not to tell me what happened in the classroom or how bad he was. If you have good news (about Evan), share that with me. I always start new.” She did not say anything. I continued, “But when it happened (as I pointed the write up), I was very vulnerable.” Mrs. Thiam said dismissively, “Of course.” “I continued, “I do not feel safe, and I do not feel safe for the rest of the class. My job is not only to care for Evan, but also to teach and protect the rest of the class.” Mrs. Thiam said, “Of course” again
Experiencing further unstable environments, these children are forced to move from one foster home to another. They rarely develop meaningful relationships and constantly endure lack of care and protection by adults. Sabreen, another gifted student, was able to excel in school despite her unstable environments. She, too, became a ward of the county battling to find a stable home, constantly being placed in unstable environments, environments that do not encourage any achievement. When her situation becomes untenable, she goes AWOL, like Olivia, refusing to return to county supervision. Corwin masterfully frames the problem that wards, like Olivia and Sabreen, face when they feel that going back into the system is not an option. The additional struggles can be seen through Olivia and Sabreen accepting jobs with long hours in order to make enough to pay their bills. The responsibility on taking care of themselves financially detracts from their studies, which quickly can become a vicious, never-ending cycle.

Many children prefer to live with their parents, so they always think the foster care system is the bad guy. Living with strangers is bad enough for them but to add on some foster homes are abusive. Foster Care goes all the way back to the Old Testament, which the churches require widows to care for orphaned children (“Care” 1). It would be a miracle that someone would treat the children like their own. Many foster homes are abusive just like the one Ashley had. Year after year, the increase of foster families is due to drugs, abuse, economy, financial, and psychological problems (“Care” 1). In this society, there are many problems that lead children to have the feeling of worthlessness. It is really sad how many children are in families of irresponsible parents. Child abuse occurs when a parent or caretaker physically, emotionally, or sexually mistreats or neglects a child resulting in the physical, emotional, sexual harm, exploitation, or imminent risk (“Care” 1). It is disgusting how people would do this stuff to kids. These people have no heart and should be punished. Not everyone gets punished, but when the time comes, they will get what they deserve. Ashley’s book shows how her difficulties in foster homes were troubling. Many professional readers enjoy reading about her hard times.

In the midst of a mysterious plague that had overtaken the capital city of Chang’an Judge Dee seeks answers to the murder of two wealthy aristocrats. Over the course of his endeavors, he encounters many attributes and acts characteristic to the Tang Dynasty.
