Book excerpt: Fans of Beautiful Disaster will devour Diana Peterfreund’s Ivy League novels—Secret Society Girl, Under the Rose, Rites of Spring (Break), and Tap & Gown. At an elite university, Amy Haskel has been initiated into the country’s most notorious secret society. But in this power-hungry world where new blood is at the mercy of old money, hooking up with the wrong people could be fatal. Eli University junior Amy Haskel never expected to be tapped into Rose & Grave. She isn’t rich, politically connected, or . . . well, male. So when Amy is one of the first female students to receive the distinctive black-lined invitation with the Rose & Grave seal, she’s blown away. Could they really mean her? Whisked off into an elaborate initiation rite, Amy awakens the next day to a new reality and a whole new set of “friends”—from the gorgeous son of a conservative governor to an Afrocentric lesbian activist whose society name is Thorndike. And that’s when Amy starts to discover the truth about getting what you wish for. Because Rose & Grave is quickly taking her away from her familiar world of classes and keggers, fueling a feud and undermining a very promising friendship with benefits. And that’s before Amy finds out that her first duty as a member of Rose & Grave is to take on a conspiracy of money and power that could, quite possibly, ruin her whole life.
Download or read book Paris Girls Secret Society written by Tom Brosnahan and published by Travel Info Exchange, Inc.. This book was released on 2017-07-18 with total page 272 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Three American girls from very different backgrounds arrive in Paris in the autumn of 1967 for a college year abroad: shy but brainy little Charity, from a Boston Brahmin family; gorgeous Amaleen, West Virginia nouveau riche man-killer; politically-committed Josie, from a prominent African-American family near Chicago. Unlikely roommates, their prejudices fall away as they grow into friendship, but May 1968 shatters their cozy world: the Sorbonne explodes in riots as millions of students and workers revolt and France hurtles toward chaos. The girls flee their Latin Quarter apartment, one to explore-and risk death-in the Dordogne's prehistoric caves; one to a lavish life in a Loire chateau where hidden terror lurks; one to dangerous exhilaration on the barricades. Along the way they stumble into love: tender, lustful, perverse, and sublime. In only a month they learn far more about who they are and who they want to be. For the Paris Girls Secret Society, life and love will never be the same.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: “This is one of my coziest reads of the last year, and I find myself thinking about its enchanted setting all the time.” - Emily Henry, #1 New York Times bestselling author A warm and uplifting novel about an isolated witch whose opportunity to embrace a quirky new family—and a new love—changes the course of her life. As one of the few witches in Britain, Mika Moon knows she has to hide her magic, keep her head down, and stay away from other witches so their powers don’t mingle and draw attention. And as an orphan who lost her parents at a young age and was raised by strangers, she’s used to being alone and she follows the rules...with one exception: an online account, where she posts videos "pretending" to be a witch. She thinks no one will take it seriously. But someone does. An unexpected message arrives, begging her to travel to the remote and mysterious Nowhere House to teach three young witches how to control their magic. It breaks all of the rules, but Mika goes anyway, and is immediately tangled up in the lives and secrets of not only her three charges, but also an absent archaeologist, a retired actor, two long-suffering caretakers, and…Jamie. The handsome and prickly librarian of Nowhere House would do anything to protect the children, and as far as he’s concerned, a stranger like Mika is a threat. An irritatingly appealing threat. As Mika begins to find her place at Nowhere House, the thought of belonging somewhere begins to feel like a real possibility. But magic isn't the only danger in the world, and when peril comes knocking at their door, Mika will need to decide whether to risk everything to protect a found family she didn’t know she was looking for....

But in this power-hungry world where new blood is at the mercy of old money, hooking up with the wrong people could be fatal. The countdown to Amy’s graduation has begun, and suddenly the perfect ending to a perfectly iconoclastic college career is slipping from her grasp. Her new boyfriend is considering an offer he can’t refuse, while Amy hasn’t even filed her fellowship applications. And the young woman she’s chosen to take her place in Rose & Grave seems to come complete with a secret life already intact. Lunging toward real life in the world beyond the hallowed halls of Eli University, Amy finds trouble around every corner, from society intrigues and unlikely stalkers to former flames and mandatory science credits. Surely it couldn’t get worse . . . until Initiation Night explodes into a terrifying scene and into a final test of wits for a young woman just trying to make it out of the Ivy League in one piece.
Download or read book Justice and Security Reform written by Lisa Denney and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2014-01-10 with total page 210 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Justice and Security Reform: Development Agencies and Informal Institutions in Sierra Leone undertakes a deep contextual analysis of the reform of the country’s security and justice sectors since the end of the civil war in 2002. Arguing that the political and bureaucratic nature of development agencies leads to a lack of engagement with informal institutions, this book examines the challenges of sustainably transforming security and justice in fragile states. Through the analysis of a post-conflict context often held up as an example of successful peacebuilding, Lisa Denney reveals how the politics of development agencies is an often forgotten constraint in security and justice reform and development efforts more broadly. Particularly suited to upper-level undergraduates and postgraduate students, as well as practitioners, this book is relevant to those interested in security and justice reform and statebuilding, as well Sierra Leone’s post-conflict recovery.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: What if you could take justice into your own hands? Would you? Maddy Johnston, better known by her nickname Ace, and the three young women she meets during group counseling decide to take justice into their own hands upon the realization that the justice system is a load of bullshit. They form a sisterhood, vowing to avenge those that cannot avenge themselves. Ace runs an abuse shelter for women where she is passionate about her work and serious about justice. When Maevan Bowden, a man who oozes both sex appeal and confidence, is hired on as the shelter's new counselor, Ace is outraged. How can abused women be counseled by a man? Ace becomes consumed with developing a plan to get rid of Maevan, but the only thing she manages to develop is a feeling that Maevan is unlike anything she has ever known. He rekindles desires Ace thought had long been smoldered, and she's conflicted over the carnal instinct to feed her body's needs and the fear of what Maevan would think if he knew that she spent her nights elbow deep in blood. Before Ace can reveal to Maevan her true feelings, a kink in her plan for revenge puts Maevan in a position to prove that maybe, just maybe, good men truly do exist.

Download or read book Girls' Literacy Experiences in and Out of School written by Elaine O'Quinn and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2013 with total page 180 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Through thoughtful analysis of girls' historical literacy experiences, their contemporary reading and writing lives, and trends in young adult literature, this book sheds new light on how teachers can better understand and create classroom experiences that make girls visible both to themselves and to others.Historically, the status of girls has evoked much less research than that of boys. Recently emerging scholastic and strategic study concerning the vulnerability of girls is adding a vital missing component to this continually emerging discourse. Looking at many aspects of girls' gendered lives, this text considers the specific perspectives of the social and cultural constructions that script gender, particularly as applies to girls in our classrooms.Prominent scholars in their respective fields examine the myriad forces that shape the lives of American girls, from the earliest didactic records of manuals and books of conduct to current artifacts of contemporary culture. By investigating both the scholarly literature on girls as well as well as the primary sources of a material culture, the authors seek to unravel how adolescent girls learn and seek to compose identities. By closely examining girls' practices, in which are embedded issues of class, race, ethnicity, immigrant status, and sexuality, the text considers some of the values, structures, and trajectories that have come to define teenage girlhood. Its distinctive contribution is to unpack some of the assumptions of girls in English classrooms and to critically examine their experiences as they try to fit preconceived norms while forming their own personhood"--
