Another month passes that changes Alex's life forever. Everything was different. Alex recuperates and returns to school, a school that knows that he is gay and that he had "almost" died. Alex's circle of friends seems to be shrinking, both at home and at school, and even his favorite teacher now treats him differently. The week of final exams arrives, and Alex finds himself barely keeping up with current lessons. Distractions like Erich, and other old friends as well, take up his time, as well as new ones, like Kevin and the gang, and David. Surprising acquaintances vie for his time and lead him into a strange circle of friends, and Alex wasn't sure he could do what they wanted him to do. Torn apart from the familiar support of the Circle, and moving in a strange new circle of friends, he is stunned to come face to face with a specter from his past from even before Toby. And the nightmares... How much more could he handle? Warning: Adult content. Graphic sexual depictions, drug use, language.

2012 Historically Speaking is the seventh annual volume of historical articles published in The Oak Ridger newspaper. Like others in this series, the weekly stories vary from purely historical event stories such as "The 60th Anniversary of Oak Ridge High School's first state championship" to human interest stories such as "Irvin Grosman - Artist, Art Teacher and Admired Dad." Both of these tell stories tell different aspects of Oak Ridge's history. There are stories of "Some GREAT things that happened in Oak Ridge," a six part series. Stories of Oak Ridge's CapitalMark Bank and Heritage Tourism as well as the Guest House are also included. I was pleased to capture these details of Oak Ridge history and am glad to bring them to you in this annual book form.
