Heads; On one side, Tyler's farcical tale involves: Chris's hidden past life, Penelope's odd behavior and accents, Baby Luke the sassy kitten, and more eccentric characters that hide in the shadows. Tails; On the other side, Jessica struggles with her faith, mental health, and Cassandra's need to hate her older sister. While her family and Tyler ignore her unstable undiagnosed mental illness, Jessica is influenced by Danny the ghost, a teenage boy who raped her when he was alive, in to killing everyone she knows. As their worlds somersault through various revelations and the thunder begins to resound, disaster ensues among their family. Which sibling will luck favor? Head or Tails? But once the smoke clears, which side will you believe?
The gold coins of the Gupta kings, who ruled over North India in the fourth and fifth centuries, are renowned for the exquisite artistic quality of their designs.

This study focuses on those gold coins that show the Gupta king with a banner carrying a miniature image of the mythic eagle Garuda, the supreme symbol of his power. They belong to five coin types - from a range of twenty-one different obverse designs - which together comprise about sixty percent of the dinaras struck from the reign of Samudragupta up to and including that of Skandagupta.
