Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: I thought this new job would be the fresh start I desperately needed. I didn’t expect the woman who broke my heart to be my new coworker. Do you believe in love at first sight? I didn’t. Not until the night I looked up from my book and saw Lucy Dillard sitting in the same noisy bar as me with her nose buried in her own book. It felt like we were made for each other. When I fell for Lucy, I fell hard. Everything was perfect between us—until she suddenly dumped me. The worst part was she wouldn’t even tell me why. Now, not only am I stuck staring at my ex’s face in the office all day long, but she’s also the one assigned to train me. As if there’s not already enough tension between us, she thinks I’m here to steal the promotion she’s been promised. But the more we’re forced to work together, the better I understand her. And the more I realize how much we kept hidden from each other. Now that I know what Lucy’s had to go through and how different her world is from mine? I’m more in love with her than ever. I just need to convince the girl who got away that I’m worth a second chance—and pray she doesn’t break my heart all over again. CREAM AND PUNISHMENT is a swoony, full-length second chance romance packed with small town feels and messy family shenanigans. Featuring an unforgettable menstrual cup mishap, a nerdy book-loving heroine who’s in over her head, and a cinnamon roll hero with a spicy side, it stands alone and promises an HEA ending.

Download or read book Black Women Theorizing Curriculum Studies in Colour and Curves written by Kirsten T. Edwards Williams and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2020-06-04 with total page 476 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book explores the curriculum theorizing of Black women, as well as their historical and contemporary contributions to the always-evolving complicated conversation that is Curriculum Studies. It serves as an opportunity to begin a dialogue of revision and reconciliation and offers a vision for the transformation of academia’s relationship with black women as students, teachers, and theorizers. Taking the perennial silencing of Black women’s voices in academia as its impetus, the book explains how even fields like Curriculum Studies – where scholars have worked to challenge hegemony, injustice, and silence within the larger discipline of education – have struggled to identify an intellectual tradition marked by the Black, female subjectivity. This epistemic amnesia is an ongoing reminder of the strength of what bell hooks calls "imperialist white supremacist capitalist patriarchy", and the ways in which even the most critical spaces fail to recognize the contributions and even the very existence of Black women. Seeking to redress this balance, this book engages the curricular lives of Black women and girls epistemologically, bodily, experientially, and publicly. Providing a clarion call for fellow educators to remain reflexive and committed to emancipatory aims, this book will be of interest to researchers seeking an exploration of critical voices from nondominant identities, perspectives, and concerns. This book was originally published as a special issue of Gender and Education.
