'I'm part of the Transworld book group' and was sent this book to review by Transworld.

I really loved the idea of this book, and had high hopes for it before I began, but for some reason, it just didn't quite live up to expectations.

The book is semi-autobiographical, and chronicles the first year of Jack Sheffield's role as Head Teacher at Ragley-on-the Forest primary school in North Yorkshire.

Incase Slider Case For Apple iPhone 4 / 4s - Black&hellip by Incase

Granted, there are cheaper cases available (not that this one is outlandishly expensive), but the saying 'you get what you pay for' definitely applies here. The case itself is pretty indestructible: It's made of a hard plastic and protects my phone wonderfully from any bumps and scrapes. The screen is easily accessible, and the phone can be very easily removed from the case if you so desire. The biggest selling point for me, however, is the fact that it's… Read more
