Freedom Writers
PN 1995.9 .M45 F744366 2007

This is a touching movie that teaches a person not only to believe in those around them, but to believe in themselves. Hilary Swank stars in this inspiring movie as the teacher who gives her troubled students a chance to make a voice for themselves. I would recommend this movie to anyone seeking encouragement, or just someone looking for a great movie to watch. J

Little Things in a Big Country
Written by Hannah Hinchman
F 739 .A94 H565 2004

Cory handed me this book and told me I should read it, so I did. It is full of the artist’s drawings, paintings, and philosophical thoughts of what she and Sisu encounter. Written in the style of a hand-written journal, with no page numbers, some of the drawings are so clear you swear that they are a photograph.
