Description : Jane Simkins is a typical, busy teenager entering Galesburg High School, home of the revered Silver Streaks. She's nervous about classes, getting to school on time, finding her locker, being dragged into the bathroom for a one-way ticket to "Swirlyville," and just fitting in. Presented in 161 weekly adventures over Jane's high-school career, "Streakin" touches all the bases of growing past Freshman fears to that last walk across the stage at graduation. In between are loads of life and laughs: a mix of muddy soccer cleats and marching mellophones, hair-dye disasters and Homecoming dresses, the first mad morning dash in the Black Pearl, selecting the right college.... and boys. Ranging from the monumental to the mundane, the real-life stories will have young readers anticipating and older ones reminiscing their own teenage days.

Description : A chance encounter leads Lori into a mystery of long-forgotten secrets... Nancy Atherton's Aunt Dimity and the Lost Prince is a delightful mystery stretching back to the Russian Revolution. Perfect for fans of M. C. Beaton and Rebecca Tope. 'How do you describe an Aunt Dimity mystery... the real magic is in the storytelling. This enchanting series is as cosy as a warm fire on a winter's night' - Denver Post In the sleepy Cotswold village of Finch, Lori Shepherd has two restless seven-year-old boys on her hands. When a friend suggests an outing to Skeaping Manor - a bizarre Jacobean house-turned-museum - she leaps at the idea. There they meet Daisy Pickering, a sweet nine year old in a shabby pink parka who regales them with tales of Russian aristocrats. When a fine silver figurine turns up in the pocket of a similar pink parka at Lori's local thrift shop, she recognizes it instantly as the object that mesmerized young Daisy. But when she tries to track down Daisy's mother, she finds they have disappeared without a trace. Stranger still, it seems one of Daisy's imagined Russian princes may be very real - and in desperate need of help. With her Aunt Dimity's otherworldly guidance, Lori begins to unravel a tangled web of secrets stretching from England's finest country estates back to the blood-drenched soil of the Russian Revolution... What readers are saying about Aunt Dimity and the Lost Prince: 'With a bit of romance and a dash of humour, Atherton comes through once again with a charming read' 'An intriguing and fun read' 'Atherton is a clever and funny writer. I enjoy the twists and turns she takes to solve the mystery. Great read'

Description : Kathleen Wall traces the myth through fifteen works of English, American, and Canadian literature, providing a fresh, feminist reading of these narratives. Among the works analysed are selections by Margaret Atwood, Charlotte Bronte, Thomas Hardy, and George Elliot. The resulting text reveals many facets of the realities of women's experience from the Middle Ages to the twentieth century. And ultimately, Wall shows rape to be an expression of dominance rather than lust, giving increased support to the definition suggested by feminists. Wall demonstrates that the Callisto myth is a powerful archetype which illustrates both the victimization of women and their search for independence and autonomy, an archetype that should not be ignored by modern women.
