Plot: Hailey recounts her abusive childhood that still haunts her today as an adult. Growing up in a large, dysfunctional family, Hailey lived in perpetual chaos with feelings of low self-worth. Her tumultuous childhood defined the only road she would ever know as a child. Changing Lanes: From Hell to Heaven is a real-life drama that takes you from her disturbing childhood to the divorced and dysfunctional adult she became. Find out how she unintentionally attracts needy, dishonest, gold-digging men, while trying to find balance and love in her life as a divorced single mother of two children. Things go very wrong in her dating life, and she finds herself caught up in an Internet dating love triangle that turns out to be deadly. Audiences will be glued to their seats from start to finish, as they find out who pays the ultimate price for love…

Review: A riveting and inspirational read. You find yourself cheering for this spiritual caterpillar-turned-butterfly. Ms. Barrett describes her journey with candor and strength. This book reminds you that no matter what your foundation is, you are responsible for building your own spiritual temple.

From an abusive home, to dysfunctional relationships that follow, you wonder how this phoenix will rise from the ashes. And Ms. Barrett does it beautifully. I quite enjoyed this book because of the compelling scenes and suspense built up about how the protagonist deals with such weighty obstacles.

That’s all I can say without spoiling it. :o) Check it out!

Whoops! These little hoodies cried typo, typo all the way home. The word suffers from doubled consonants instead of doubled vowels in the middle. It insinuates the term people use for an attractive person, “hottie.” But in this case, I think that they are selling hooded sweatshirts, not cute folks.

Whether or not to double consonants in a word can be a real head-scratcher. The rule is usually simple: double the consonants if the vowel sound is short. Of course there are exceptions, like “buses” and “benefiting. And many members of the double O family are pronounced differently, making for more confusion in writing. Not all of these rhyme:

  • Hood
  • Brood
  • Flood
  • Blood
  • Food
  • Good

I remember how to spell these words by rote memory. Do you have any tricks? Please share.

Happy reading and writing, my friends!
