Someone Like You is a short, gripping story of life in wartime from Roald Dahl, the master of the shocking tale. In Someone Like You, Roald Dahl, one of the world's favourite authors, tells of two wartime pilots arguing over the fickle hand of fate (and the airman) . . . Someone Like You is taken from the short story collection Over to You, which includes nine other dramatic and terrifying tales of life as a wartime fighter pilot, and is drawn from Dahl's own experiences during the Second World War. This story is also available as a Penguin digital audio download read by Julian Rhind-Tutt. Roald Dahl, the brilliant and worldwide acclaimed author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, and many more classics for children, also wrote scores of short stories for adults. These delightfully disturbing tales have often been filmed and were most recently the inspiration for the West End play, Roald Dahl's Twisted Tales by Jeremy Dyson. Roald Dahl's stories continue to make readers shiver today.

Welcome to The Educators, a riveting contemporary romance series about today’s schools by NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Kathryn Shay. Veteran teacher Shay returns to one of her favorite settings and vividly portrays the teachers, administrators and students of Crystal Corners High School. As is her trademark, sizzling romances are back-dropped by controversial, complicated and sometimes dangerous situations. “There are hot issues of the day to address in this book...The story is heartbreaking, one I'm sure is not unique at all... Another solid read from Shay.” Lori Sherden, Goodreads In SOMEONE LIKE YOU, teacher Brie Gorman and Coach Nick Corelli have been at odds for years. She never liked the sexy jock himself, and hates how the school tends to coddle athletes. But when one of Brie’s students, the star quarterback of the football team, goes into a downward spiral, she and Nick must work together to help him. Nick and Brie live in two different worlds. She’s the sophisticated type and he’s all about sports. So he’s shocked when he develops feelings for her. But she’s key in helping one of his players and he’s forced into proximity with her. A fiery passion they can’t ignore erupts between them, even when they clash over the best way to save the boy’s life. If you like books about teacher romance, high school romance, opposites attract romance and teacher student relationships, look for the other two stories in the Educators series: STILL THE ONE and MAYBE THIS TIME Reader Praise for SOMEONE LIKE YOU “I love Kathryn Shay's books and this one did not disappoint. I look forward to seeing what she writes next.” “I have always relied on Kathryn Shay's books for relaxation and for a most enjoyable, realistic story. SOMEONE LIKE YOU is just that! I found it hard to put down after I started to read, and - in fact - didn't put it down until I finished...it was that good!” “Ms Shay did it again ... another heartfelt story dealing with real life issues. I read a lot but have never seen an author continuously write about how real people can deal with difficult situations. Her knowledge is appreciated as she imparts some serious problems in schools today.”
