Denielle Steel, America's sweetheart, is one of the hardest working women in the book business. Unlike other productive authors who write one book at a time, she can work on up to five. Her research comes before writing takes at least three years. Once she has fully studied her subjects, she can spend twenty hours nonstop at her desk.
Denielle Steel comes from New York and was sent to France for her education. After graduation, she worked in the public relations and advertising industries. Later she started a job as a writer which she was best fit for. Her achievements are unbelievable, 390 million copies of books in print, nearly fifty New York Times best-selling novels, and a series of “Max and Martha" picture books for children to help them deal with the real-life problem of death, new babies and new schools. Her book published in 1998 about the death of her was shot to the top of the New York Times best-selling list as soon as it came out. Twenty-eight of her books have been made into films. She is listed in the Guinness Books of World Records for one of her books being the Times best-seller for 381  weeks straight.
Not content with a big house, a loving family, and a view of the Golden Gate Bridge, Denielle Steel considers her readers to be the most important resource and has kept in touch with them by-email. While she is often compared to the heroines of her own invention, her life is undoubtedly much quieter. But if she does have anything in common with them, it is her strength of will and her inimitable  (独特的 )  style. There is only one, Denielle Steel!

On the night of November 14, 1978,a six-year-old Korean boy was flying to the United  States. All he knew was that he was on a plane heading for somewhere. The plane landed at  Kennedy International Airport, where he was greeted by a family. This young boy was me.
I have grown up in a town where there were few Asians, so I stuck out in the crowd. I  made friends quickly and they treated me just like anyone else. You may ask if anyone made  fun of my appearance. Well, of course, I met that' kind of person. I just shrugged it off.
As an adopted child, I have something that others don't have. I have had the benefit of two  families. I'm lucky to have got a chance to start a new life. But we must try never to forget our  past. Someday I will go back to Korea to find out what kind of culture I left behind.
There is only one thing that I regret about being adopted. When I argue with my parents and they realize they are losing the argument, they sometimes wonder what I would be doing if  I were back in Korea. I don't understand this because I thought the purpose of adopting  someone was to give them a better chance of growing up in a family. Some day when I am  older, I want to adopt a girl and raise her the way my parents have raised me, but I would do it  better, for I know what went well and what did not.

Although similar in appearance to hyenas(土狼), African wild dogs are nevertheless true wild canine(犬). They are a mixture of black, yellow, and white in such a wide variety of patterns that no two individuals look exactly alike. African wild dogs are widely distributed across the African plains but they do not live in jungle areas.
They are social animals, living in groups of usually from 2 to 45 individuals. A hierarchy(统团) exists within the group,  but the animals are friendly to one another. The young and the infirm(体弱的) are given special privileges within the group.
African wild dogs use their sense of sight, not smell, to find their prey. They can run up to 55 km/h for several kilometers. In eastern Africa, they mostly hunt Thomson's gazelles, but they will also attack calves, warthogs, zebras, impalas, and the young of large antelopes such as the gnu.
Growing human populations have decreased or degraded the African wild dog's habitat and also diminished their available prey. Road kill and human persecution(迫害) have also had a negative impact on African wild dog populations. This species is also susceptible to a variety of diseases such as distemper, which is controlled in domestic .dogs. Conservation of the African wild dog's natural habitat must have the highest priority, as these dogs suffer in habitats modified by human intrusion(干扰).
【小题1】What does the underlined word "susceptible" mean?

【小题2】What factors affect the population of the wild dogs?
a. the distribution of the dogs                  b. social living
c. highly increasing human populations          d. human's killing the dogs
e. many diseases                           f. the changes of their habitats
g. domestic dogs                            h. food reduction
A.a. b, c, d, e% R- i) i$ j' c: c' ]- L" e; i7 NB.b, c, d, e, f% R- i) i$ j' c: c' ]- L" e; i7 NC.c, d, e, f, h% R- i) i$ j' c: c' ]- L" e; i7 ND.d, e, f, g, h% R- i) i$ j' c: c' ]- L" e; i7 N

B.African wild dogs are not in danger, because are widely distributed across the African plains.% R- i) i$ j' c: c' ]- L" e; i7 N

One day, when I was working as a psychologist in England, an adolescent boy showed up in my office. It was David. He kept walking up and down restlessly, his face pale, and his hands shaking slightly. His head teacher had referred him to me. "This boy has lost his family," he wrote. "He is understandably very sad and refuses to talk to others, and I'm very worried about him. Can you help?" '
I looked at David and showed him to a chair. How could I help him? There are problems psychology doesn't have the answer to, and which no words can describe. Sometimes the best thing one can do is to listen openly and sympathetically.
The first two times we met David didn't say a word. He sat there, only looking up to look at the children’s drawings on the wall behind me. I suggested we play a game of chess. He nodded. After that he played chess with me every Wednesday afternoon - in complete silence and without looking at me. It's not easy to cheat in chess, but I admit I made sure David won once or twice.
Usually, he arrived earlier than agreed, took the chess board and pieces from the shelf and began setting them up before I even got a chance to sit down. It seemed as if he enjoyed my company. But why did he never look at me?
"Perhaps he simply needs someone to share his pain with," I thought. "Perhaps he senses that I respect his suffering." Some months later, when we were playing chess, he looked up at me suddenly.
"It's your turn," he said.
After that day, David started talking. He got friends in school and joined a bicycle club. He wrote to me a few times about his biking with some friends, an d about his plan to get into university. Now he had really started to live his own life.
Maybe I gave David something. But I also learned that one - without any words – can reach out to another person. All it takes is a hug, a shoulder to cry' on, a friendly touch, and an ear that listens. 
【小题1】When he first met the author, David________.

A.felt a little excited# M0 e% E; I5 j3 _& A4 J* @
B.walked energetically# M0 e% E; I5 j3 _& A4 J* @
C.looked a little nervous# M0 e% E; I5 j3 _& A4 J* @
D.showed up with his teacher# M0 e% E; I5 j3 _& A4 J* @
【小题2】As a psychologist, the author_______ .
A.was ready to listen to David# M0 e% E; I5 j3 _& A4 J* @
B.was skeptical about psychology# M0 e% E; I5 j3 _& A4 J* @
C.was able to describe David's problem# M0 e% E; I5 j3 _& A4 J* @
D.was sure of handling David's problem# M0 e% E; I5 j3 _& A4 J* @
【小题3】David enjoyed being with the author because he ______.
A.wanted to ask the author for advice# M0 e% E; I5 j3 _& A4 J* @
B.need to share sorrow with the author# M0 e% E; I5 j3 _& A4 J* @
C.liked the children's drawings in the office# M0 e% E; I5 j3 _& A4 J* @
D.beat the author many times in the chess game# M0 e% E; I5 j3 _& A4 J* @
【小题4】What can be inferred about David?
A.He recovered after months of treatment.# M0 e% E; I5 j3 _& A4 J* @
B.He liked biking before he lost his family.# M0 e% E; I5 j3 _& A4 J* @
C.He went into university soon after starting to talk.# M0 e% E; I5 j3 _& A4 J* @
D.He got friends in school before he met the author.# M0 e% E; I5 j3 _& A4 J* @
【小题5】What made David change?
A.His teacher's help.# M0 e% E; I5 j3 _& A4 J* @
B.The author's friendship.# M0 e% E; I5 j3 _& A4 J* @
C.His exchange of letters with the author.# M0 e% E; I5 j3 _& A4 J* @
