The central unifying theme of this state-of-the-art contribution to research on literacy is its rethinking and reconceptualization of individual differences in reading. Previous research, focused on cognitive components of reading, signaled the need for ongoing work to identify relevant individual differences in reading, to determine the relationship(s) of individual differences to reading development, and to account for interactions among individual differences. Addressing developments in each of these areas, this volume also describes affective individual differences, and the environments in which individual differences in reading may emerge, operate, interact, and change. The scant comprehensive accounting of individual differences in reading is reflected in the nature of reading instruction programs today, the outcomes that are expected from successful teaching and learning, and the manner in which reading development is assessed. An important contribution of this volume is to provide prima facie evidence of the benefits of broad conceptualization of the ways in which readers differ. The Handbook of Individual Differences in Reading moves the field forward by encompassing cognitive, non-cognitive, contextual, and methodological concerns. Its breadth of coverage serves as both a useful summary of the current state of knowledge and a guide for future work in this area.

From the author of THE BRIDGE FROM ME TO YOU, a groundbreaking novel about what matters most -- when time is running out. What do you do with your last day on earth? There are 27 hours and fifteen minutes left until an asteroid strikes North America, and, for Emerson and everyone else who didn't leave, the world will end. But Emerson's world already ended when she ran away from home last year. Since then she has lived on the streets, relying on her wits and her friend Vince to help her find places to sleep and food to eat. The city's quieter now that most people are gone, and no one seems to know what to do as the end approaches. But then Emerson and Vince meet Carl, who tells them that he has been granting people's wishes. He gave his car away so a woman could take her son to see the ocean for the first time, and he gives Emerson and Vince all the money he has in his wallet. Suddenly this last day seems full of possibility. Emerson and Vince can grant a lot of wishes in 27 hours --- maybe even their own.

Heartbreak sucks! Irrespective of background, this emotional turbulence does not discriminate, tearing through its victims of any age, gender, ethnicity, or social class. Even you reading these words understand the depths of this grief. It's horrible! It's dangerous! It can be life-threatening, and yet not enough people take this pain seriously! Why isn't there a reliable guide which can help us through this all-consuming agony? Hello! There is! This is that guide. How "Heartbreak Sucks!" works is by assigning small (often fun!) daily tasks to the reader, each tried-and-tested to improve all elements of an individual's life constructively. And after 30 days, the sufferer will have transformed into a better version of themselves with a greater understanding of the healing process. Simple! No longer do you have to feel lost in a sea of questions because we can answer them all together. Should you cut off the ex? What's the best way to treat mutual friends? How quickly should you rebound? How can you divert the depression? What type of partner is best suited to you? Could you turn this ordeal into an opportunity? How can you exploit your mishap to become a stronger you? Who are you anyway? Don't worry about it! We will address these topics and many others in great detail, each advancing your emotional state (and your desirability!) substantially. Furthermore, by pursuing these purposeful actions, your distracted month will zip past like ripping off a band-aid. Above even this promise, "Heartbreak Sucks!" will teach you from a place of understanding a fundamental element the other books have neglected. Clinical psychobabble lacks the necessary compassion. Excessive humour will only provide temporary relief. What is required is a program that runs down the middle, one that does not sugar-coat the issues but encourages a smile as the reader moves towards liberation. The casual tone of Jared's voice refuses to speak from a superior podium of authority, preferring a careful mix of empathy and amusement to lift the spirits and nudge the healing forward. Because in these testing times of misery, broken hearts need a friendly hand, not a rigid set of instructions. Did we mention the inspirational quotes? We have those! Or how about the bunny rabbits? We've got tons of those too. So many bunnies, you'll love them. You're safe here. "Heartbreak Sucks! How to Get over Your Breakup in 30 Days" is Jared Woods' third book. Still, he is far better known as a key scriptwriter for the cartoon series Pencilmation, enjoyed by millions upon millions of weekly viewers (officially the biggest animated channel on YouTube). When he endured a severe attack of heartbreak some years ago, he set out to defeat the turmoil by consuming all of the material available on this subject. In doing so, he developed a foolproof 30-day system that allowed him to get on with his life. What a beneficial tool! Far too beneficial to keep to himself. Hence, Jared penned this guide, passing the assistance forward as his first foray into the self-help world of writing.
