A slacking student got quite a surprise on Sunday.
When the aptly monikered Idiot America failed to complete his summer reading, he asked Yahoo! Answers to do it for him. He wrote:
"Can someone completely cover the book 'The Boy Who Couldn't Sleep and Never Had To' to me?
School starts on the 22nd for me, and I haven't been able to finish this book.
Can someone give me a complete review, including everything important?
I REALLY need this!"
Well, the student received an answer alright- from the book's author, comedian DC Pierson.
Samantha Brownlie is a very special little girl- not because she's brave, but because she isn't scared!
Samantha and her brother both wear hearing aids, but the 8-year-old's parents taught her not to be ashamed of her hearing impairment.
With their support, she was bold enough to write and illustrate her own book on the subject- and maybe help some other kids be a less afraid!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to hear her inspiring story!
Maybe you'll figure out something you should be a little less afraid of!
We're sure a lot of women can relate to this.
Justin Bieber's mom Pattie Mallette is about to let it all out.
She just recently signed with Revell to write a memoir, titled Nowhere but Up: The Story of Justin Bieber's Mom, which will focus on her journey from being a troubled teen to a single mom and what it took to catapult her son's career.
She plans to go into detail about abuse, trauma, and addiction she suffered as a youth and how she turned her life around after getting pregnant with her son, Justin
Hoping to inspire other women who have similar experiences, Pattie said:
"I want them to see that no matter how desperate their circumstances may be, they can have hope for a better future."
Jennifer Leep, the editorial director at Revell adds:
"Pattie’s story is a powerful example of courage and determination that will inspire anyone who has faced struggles in life. She’s living proof that even in the darkest of places, there is always room for hope."
The book will be released by Sept. 18.
And with Justin's name attached, we're sure it will shoot to the top of the bestsellers' list. Especially for the JB cougar fans! Right?? LOL!

Now that she's an Oscar winner, Octavia Spencer, is switching careers!
Don't worry, she's not done with acting. Howeves, The Help star revealed that she will be taking some extra time to write a children's book series! Octavia gushed:
"They’re books about sleuthing. I’m a detective by nature. I have one book written and two that are already being mapped out."
Her inspiration? Spencer says:
"I’m a huge forensics person. I watch all the case study shows. I love them.”
We're sure the creators of Law & Order and CSI will be happy to hear they inspire greatness!
Her series hasn't been picked up by a publisher, yet, but we're looking forward to hearing more about Octavia Goose's work!
Welcome to the club, gurl!!!
