Synopsis of Step by Wicked Step by Anne Fine

It is a wild and stormy night when five British school children from Mordanger School arrive ahead of their classmates for a week-long field trip at "haunted" Old Harwick Hall. With the aid of flashes of lightning, the two girls Claudia and Pixie and three boys, Robbo, Ralph and Colin find a long-abandoned secret room containing a mysterious journal. On the cover, it reads, ‘ Richard Clayton Harwick – My Story. Read and Weep’. From the journal, the children uncover the story of a boy who runs away from the sinister influence of a loveless stepfather. Richard Clayton Harwick's long-hidden journal provides an inner tale that triggers off, one by one, each of the stories of the listening children, all of whom also have "steps," or step-parents, to share their own sagas. And what engrossing, heart-rending stories they are: of hurting but still humorous children picking their way through a minefield of embittered or uncommunicative or just plain immature parents, insecure or reluctant step parents and resentful step siblings. However, the lack of a principal plot is of no consequence as the novel main purpose is to serve as a forum for the various stories. "Step by Wicked Step" proves that all pain eventually heals and that we have the power to change things for the better.

IJN Does Transplant Again

Instruction: Read the text.

After a lapse of two years, the National Heart Institute (IJN) performed a lung transplant on a patient last night.The family of Chiew Fong Neo from Tangkak, agreed to donate a pair of kidneys, cornea, liver, lungs and heart valves after the hit-and-run accident victim was declared brain dead. Their generosity enabled IJN to perform its first lung transplant since 2007 when the country’s first heart and lung transplant patient Siti Salmah Jasni was operated on. Siti Salmah died on Nov 28 the same year.
According to Chiew’s sister Fong Kiao, 54, the victim, who was working in Singapore, was hit by a car at Taman Tangkak Jaya on Sunday.She said her sister had previously made known to her family her wish to donate her organs.
IJN heart and lung services clinical director Dr Mohamed Ezani Mohd Taib left the institute at 11am for Muar before flying back with the lungs. This is the first time the Sultanah Fatimah Specialist Hospital in Muar has harvested organs from an accident victim.Its director Dr Ahmad Pauzi Abu said it was a team effort by several parties, including IJN, the hospital, the Armed Forces and police. He thanked the victim and her family for their noble act.

Teens Issue on Relationship

Parents - Teen Conversation: From a survey done

Is the glass half full or half empty? About six out of ten teens (67% of girls and 62% of guys) find it difficult to talk to their parents about relationships. Still, about one in four teens (27% of guys and 24% of girls) say it’s easy to talk to their parents about relationship issues.

Teens have lots of reasons why they don’t talk with their parents about love, sex, and relationships, including fear of their parent’s reaction,worry that their parents will think they are having sex, embarrassment, not knowing how to bring the subject up, and the belief that parents won’t understand. Parents want to talk to their children about these topics but freely admit they often don’t know what to say or when to start the conversation.

Fast Fact: We know from previous surveys that there is a conversation disconnect between parents and teens. Teens say that parents are having helpful conversations with them about sex and related issues but there is disagreement about just how often. For example—89% of adults said that they’ve had a helpful conversation about sex, love, and relationships with their teens but only 71% of teens agree, according to a previous survey.

Parent Tip: Remember to monitor your children. Perhaps talking to your kids honestly about love, sex,and relationships may help them understand. They need guidance on what is good and bad for them.

Teen Tip: Help your parents out—be patient when they broach tough topics such as dating and relationships, and especially sex. It is very much awkward for them too!


“ A serious relationship is just deeply caring about the person you are with no matter what they want. Being in love has a huge part in that because if you
love someone you wouldn’t push them into anything that can jeopardize his/her future or their good practices in life and religion. Whatever it is GOD is watching take a good care of the trust and your beliefs in GOD”
