Behind Closed Doors by Mila Cassandre was a depressing but good story. Cassandre tells her story about growing up in a world where everyone is against her, including herself. It is not until later in her life that she was able to find happiness. This book is not for everyone! Mila Cassandre has led a very troubled life. Born to a mother that always put herself first before her kids’ safety, Cassandre was constantly sexually abused by the many men in her mother’s life. Because of this, Cassandre fell into drugs and alcohol at an early age. In Behind Closed Doors, Cassandre bares her soul and tells the reader her experiences about being raped, living in foster care, and becoming a teenage prostitute. Cassandre’s life has been filled with disappointing people and dangerous situations.
At times during her story, I felt that Cassandre was a danger to herself. She was constantly picking the worst people to have a relationship with. Cassandre’s story did, however, make me see why she did what she did. This has helped me to better understand some people in my own life that are very similar to Cassandre. Somehow Cassandre managed to turn her life around and find the happiness that she longed for her whole life. I can see Cassandre’s story helping a lot of people. For that I am recommending it to people who need to know that overcoming your addictions is possible. It may not be an easy read, but it is worth it!

The people of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick are well known for their bright colors. They paint their houses in bright colors, and their doors and window frames stand out with bright colors. These Atlantic Canadians are also revered for their folk art. A leisurely drive through the countryside in either of these provinces reveals a wide range of marvellous folk art structures, not the least of which are their fascinating mailboxes. There are lighthouse mailboxes, doghouse mailboxes, and those that mimic the main house behind. There are mailboxes that demonstrate the art of recycling, using old barrels, even empty propane tanks, painted and added to the artistic effect. There are the more creative mailboxes that depict birds or wildlife, or even a dog climbing into the mailbox. Unique, original and very colorful. But is this creativity doomed: a blight on our ever-changing landscape that is now dominated by alternative means of communication?
Katherine E. Tapley-Milton’s coffee table picture book, The Disappearing Mailboxes of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia (A Tour of Mailboxes), takes the reader on a journey through two of Canada’s Atlantic provinces, with colorful images of folk art mailboxes. With interesting trivia and historical information on these two provinces, interspersed with marvellous photographs of the mailboxes, the book is something to treasure and enjoy over and over again. The author poses the question of these delightful, but probably doomed works of art, challenging the reader to ponder the ever declining service of door-to-door mail delivery. The book further compliments the artistry of a people not afraid to stand out as unique, colorful, and creative.

In The Freckle Monster: Freckles the Bunny Series, Book #6, Freckles is a special little bunny. She is smart, caring and very creative. Her latest project was to create a ‘Stop Bullying’ poster for school. All of the students were participating and the principal would choose the best poster to be highlighted on the local news. Freckles was sure that her poster would win. She was very proud of her poster. But her poster didn’t win. Her best friend, Stew, had her poster chosen. As the news reporter interviewed Stew about her poster, Freckles fumed about not winning the contest. Her jealousy turned to revenge and soon Freckles was no longer the caring bunny that everyone loved; she was the mean bully bunny that made everyone mad at each other. Can Freckles be stopped?
As a child, author Vickianne Caswell had been bullied. Her daughter and co-author, Erika-Elizabeth Caswell, had also been bullied. Many of Freckles' experiences were based on events that happened in their lives. It’s sad to think that jealousy can fester to the point where everyone is mad and vengeful at each other. Using colorful illustrations, realistic scenarios and dialogue, and a once beloved family member (Freckles the bunny) the authors have created a powerful story about the very serious issue of bullying. Well done!
