From the horrors of war in Yugoslavia to life on a Newcastle council estate in the north of England, the tremendous pace of Flying with Kites will take your breath away. Katya Gjikolli is bent on her own and her son's survival in a world gone mad. Her husband may have been caught by the Serbs, he may be imprisoned, tortured or even dead. She eventually escapes on a refugee flight to the UK. She finds herself housed with another Kosovan refugee in a high-rise flat in a depressed area of Newcastle in the north of England. She begins her new life, finding new friends and a new love. One woman's struggle to survive leads to new friends who live on the edge of the law. There's Bigsy who will do anything to make money, strictly for cash. Chirpy and Wazza make up the colourful trio who aid Bigsy in delivering drugs to the clubs in Newcastle for Everton Sheedie, a dealer with roots in Brixton. Carol, Bigsy's wife, dishes out 'favours' to him dependent on how well he behaves and how much money he gives her to spend. Polly is an art student with a talent for flying kites, as well as an eye for a good photograph and for Katya. Other characters are peppered throughout the novel providing colour and depth, making this a terrific read. It has got sex and violence. It's also got tenderness so well written that it will bring a tear to the eye.

" A Guyanese Girl's Story "is a series of short stories from my childhood. One of my favorite is ""Kite Flying in the Village." "Kite flying is a family outing for many in Guyana, South America. Easter is a very special holiday in my village of Vreedenhoop in which the children of many ages make and decorate kites to fly in celebration of Easter. Another part of kite flying is when mischievous children cut down kites by attaching a razor to their own kites. In this story the main character Anya deals with a mean boy named Joey who lives next door. While flying kites, Anya learns a valuable lesson of friendship and family. Children will enjoy the sneaky plots of the mean neighborhood boy as well as the colorful illustrations.

In 1999, TJ Hunter did not care if she lived any longer. In terms of wealth she had been blessed beyond her wildest dreams but, in terms of happiness, she was sure she had been cursed. Overlooked as an irrelevant girl as a child, she had finally found her perfect life, only to have it wrenched from her grasp in wave after wave of grief. Now, still numb from loss, she is forced to face a life-threatening illness and she just doesn’t care if she survives. As she is sitting in her doctor’s office, TJ has a chance encounter with a magazine article about hockey legend Wayne Gretzky retiring. The article sparks something deep inside her memory and strange things start to happen, catapulting TJ on a magical journey in an attempt to recover from the horrors of her past and face the uncertainty of her future. Can TJ find the spirit within her to go on with living? Can the horrors of the past somehow be laid to rest as two stories of loss become entwined and reach a surprising conclusion? Are there any answers to questions that have been floating on the wind, like lost kites, for so many years?

Dealing with aerodynamics in the broadest sense, this book discusses, in addition to aeroplanes, the aerodynamics of cars and birds, and the motion of diverse objects through air and water. The fundamental notions of mechanics and fluid dynamics are clearly explained, while the underlying science is discussed rigorously, but using only elementary mathematics, and then only occasionally. To put the science into its human context, the author describes -- with many illustrations -- the history of human attempts to fly and discusses the social impact of commercial aviation as well as the outlook for future developments. This new edition has been brought up to date throughout; solutions to selected exercises have been added, as have new problems and other study aids.
