The Gang of Five

It certainly has been a crazy year, hasn’t it?  Well, thankfully, a new year is upon us and here at the Gang of Five forum we have a new year of showcases, prompts, and themes to get the new year started in the right way.  We wish you all a happy new year, and we look forward to what you have in store for us this year!

For the month of January we have a new character showcase.  Please warmly welcome Littlefoot's Mother! :)littlefoot The character showcase topic for this month can be found here.

Also keep in mind that the December and January prompts for the fanfic prompt challenge is now open.  We are doing things a bit differently this season and allowing for people to either fulfill a monthly prompt or a suggested prompt during each month.  I look forward to seeing what you all come up with! :)  The fanfic prompt rules and list of monthly prompts can be found here.

To Sir, With Love

I read To Sir, With Love this summer and did a book report on it.  I enjoyed reading the book.  It is about a black man named Ricardo Braithwaite who was a former member of the RAF.  After WWII, he was unable to get a job because nobody would hire a black man.  He finally got hired to teach at a rough school in east London.  The kids were dirty and very crude.  However, Braithwaite tought them discipline and how to act like civilized adults.  There is also a movie based on the book that we watched at school a few weeks ago.  It is also pretty good.  So, has anyone here ever read the book or see the movie?

No I haven't. Have you read the Count of Monte Cristo? it's by Alexandre Dumas.
