Fashion student Lacey Weston is desperate to leave the city and go home to Jumbuck Springs. Her three older brothers are adamant she’s not. They made a death bed promise to their mother that Lacey would stay the distance at design school and Ethan, the oldest, takes this responsibility very seriously. But Lacey is deeply homesick and determined not to be dissuaded again. She’s also impulsive enough to try anything - even faking a pregnancy. Ex-cop turned mechanic, Cooper Grainger - one of Ethan’s oldest friends - agrees to watch out for Lacey in the city even though he has a history with her he’d rather forget. How hard could it be, right? But a couple of years later, Coop is over pulling Lacey out of scrapes and cleaning up her messes as she tries to outrun her grief and sense of dislocation. He takes her back to Jumbuck Springs so she can persuade her brothers to let her come home. But things don’t go according to plan. Before Coop knows it Lacey’s pregnant and he’s putting his hand up as the fake baby daddy, filling in for the town mechanic and moving in with her at the local pub. Lacey is thrilled to have won a reprieve but nothing about the situation sits well with Coop. Least of all having sweet little Lacey Weston as his new roomie…

From Courtney Summers, the author of Cracked Up To Be, comes a dark new tale of high school rivalry in which vicious rumors and nasty tricks are the currency that buys you popularity or seals your fate at the bottom of the food chain. Climbing to the top of the social ladder is hard--falling from it is even harder. Regina Afton used to be a member of the Fearsome Fivesome, an all-girl clique both feared and revered by the students at Hallowell High... until vicious rumors about her and her best friend's boyfriend start going around. Now Regina's been "frozen out" and her ex-best friends are out for revenge. If Regina was guilty, it would be one thing, but the rumors are far from the terrifying truth and the bullying is getting more intense by the day. She takes solace in the company of Michael Hayden, a misfit with a tragic past who she herself used to bully. Friendship doesn't come easily for these onetime enemies, and as Regina works hard to make amends for her past, she realizes Michael could be more than just a friend... if threats from the Fearsome Foursome don't break them both first. Tensions grow and the abuse worsens as the final days of senior year march toward an explosive conclusion. “This story takes an unflinching look at the intricacies of high school relationships .... Fans of the film Mean Girl will enjoy this tale of redemption and forgiveness.” —School Library Journal

Jungenforschung empirisch

Zwischen Schule, männlichem Habitus und Peerkultur

Author: Juergen Budde,Ingelore Mammes

Über Jungen in der Schule wird aktuell viel geredet, eine umfassende wissenschaftliche Auseinandersetzung steht jedoch bislang noch aus. Der Stand der Jungenforschung erweist sich als empirisch und theoretisch wenig fundiert, ein systematischer Bezug auf die Schule als Institution fehlt weitestgehend. Dieses Buch zeigt aktuelle Perspektiven im Anschluss an das Habituskonzept auf und stellt Bezüge zwischen Schule, Jungen und Peerkultur aus nationaler und internationaler Sicht her. Die wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnisse zeigen, dass Jungen eine höchst heterogene Gruppe sind und dass das vereinfachte Bild der Jungen als Bildungsverlierer nicht haltbar ist.

Sie sind schön, sie haben Geld, sie sind begabt: Emanuela, Simon, Franny, Jess. Mit zielstrebiger Selbstverständlichkeit nehmen sie jede Hürde ihres Studiums in Oxford und sie sind die Freunde von Marc, der lässiger ist als alle anderen, entwaffnend charmant, offenkundig promisk und geradezu obszön reich. James würde alles dafür geben dazuzugehören. Als Jess sich in ihn verliebt, geht dieser Wunsch in Erfüllung, mehr noch, Marc bittet sie alle, bei ihm einzuziehen. Keiner widersteht diesem Angebot und bald belebt eine exklusive WG den alten Herrensitz, mit rauschenden Partys und wechselnden Liebschaften. Ohne es selbst zu merken, verstrickt sich James in eine Abhängigkeit von Marc, aus der er sich, auch als die Gemeinschaft auseinandergeht und trotz seiner Liebe zu Jess, kaum befreien kann. Mit scharfem Blick und scharfer Zunge porträtiert Naomi Alderman eine ganz besondere Facette der geschlossenen Gesellschaft einer Eliteuni versität und lotet dabei die Kräfteverhältnisse von Ehrgeiz und Einsamkeit aus, von Liebe und Macht.

The First Chicagoland Vampires Novel They killed me. They healed me. They changed me. Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn’t exactly glamorous, but I was doing fine until Chicago’s vampires announced their existence to the world. When a rogue vampire attacked me, I was lucky he only got a sip. Another bloodsucker scared him off and decided the best way to save my life was to make me the walking undead. Now I’ve traded sweating over my thesis for learning to fit in at a Hyde Park mansion full of vamps loyal to Ethan “Lord o’ the Manor” Sullivan. Of course, as a tall, green-eyed, four-hundred-year-old vampire, he has centuries’ worth of charm, but unfortunately he expects my gratitude—and servitude. Right… But someone’s out to get me. Is it the rogue vampire who bit me? A vamp from a rival House? An angry mob bearing torches? My initiation into Chicago’s nightlife may be the first skirmish in a war—and there will be blood.
