They were outcasts, the forgotten boys of Trinidad and Tobago imprisoned for violent crimes including armed robbery and murder. They had nothing left but a wish for a better life, the feeling that they would need an education to achieve their goals, and a desperate desire to find an English teacher. In 2010 Debbie Jacob entered the gates of the Youth Training Centre (YTC), the remand centre for boys in the Caribbean island of Trinidad - it would be a move that would change her life and the lives of her young charges forever. Based on a true story, Wishing for Wings recounts Debbie's challenging journey of preparing seven young men for the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) English Language exam. Heartbreaking but also encouraging, Debbie's story and those of her students, offer an unprecedented look into the lives of troubled teens and boys in prison. The realities of the education and justice systems are brought into sharp focus as are issues such as teaching (formal) English in a Creole speaking environment. It is a story of challenge and triumph; of rebellion and redemption; of loss and of learning, but most of all it is about the Power of Love. Debbie Jacob took a chance with her students, and they took a chance with her. In the end, both teacher and students would discover just how much they had come to need each other. Impossible to put down, Wishing for Wings captures both the fear and the pleasure of one teacher in unchartered territory; and the hope and trust sustaining her students. The story of their journey together will make you cry and make you smile, but most of all, it will remind you of the enduring power of faith and love.
Wishing for Wings is the culmination of an extraordinary legacy from a very gifted man of letters. The poems in this final collection were written over a short year--from the time of his lover's death in late March of 1993 through March 1994 when his own physical strength was severely diminished. Written during a time of great hardship, these poems bear witness to the tragic and yet fully realized life of a gay, HIV-positive artist. --Walter Holland.

With her future on the line, Becca thinks she's caught a break when she receives a brass lamp, complete with a gender-bending, wish-granting genie. Wielding her wishes, Becca gets the chance to stage a challenging new play that can put the theater back on track. It's even written by the adorably awkward Ryan Thompson - who just might mend her tattered heart. Alas the only prospect for financing the show is the world's most obnoxious popcorn magnate, and Ryan flat-out refuses to take money from a jerk. Just how difficult can it be for a woman to wish her way to love and success?

In August 1942, British launched Operation Pedestal in an attempt to deliver supplies to the stricken island of Malta, an Allied base which had been under Axis blockade for months. From 9–15 August a convoy of some 50 ships ran the gauntlet of Axis bombers, submarines, E-boats and minefields. Of the original fourteen merchant vessels, only five reached Malta Grand Harbour. In 'I Wish I Had Your Wings', Angus Mansfield relates the experiences of two men involved in Pedestal, Captain David Macfarlane of MV Melbourne Star and his nephew David Mejor, one of the Spitfire pilots who fought to protect the convoy. Told using their log books, letters and papers, this is the story of one family’s contribution to a relief operation that cost over 400 Allied lives, but which has gone down in history as one of the most important British strategic victories of the Second World War.
