Kill Me Softly by , Summary

Mirabelle's past is shrouded in secrecy, from her parents' tragic deaths to her guardians' half-truths about why she can't return to her birthplace, Beau Rivage. Desperate to see the town, Mira runs away—and discovers a world she never could have imagined. In Beau Rivage, nothing is what it seems—the strangely pale girl with a morbid interest in apples, the obnoxious playboy who's a beast to everyone he meets, and the chivalrous guy who has a thing for damsels in distress. Here, fairy tales come to life, curses are awakened, and ancient stories are played out again and again. But fairy tales aren't pretty things, and they don't always end in happily ever after. Mira has a role to play, a fairy tale destiny to embrace or resist. As she struggles to take control of her fate, Mira is drawn into the lives of two brothers with fairy tale curses of their own...brothers who share a dark secret. And she'll find that love, just like fairy tales, can have sharp edges and hidden thorns.

Cogan's Trade by George V. Higgins Summary

A hard-hitting, tour de force tale of the mob and the man who makes sure their rules are the only rules, by the American master of crime George V. Higgins. Jackie Cogan is an enforcer, and when the mob's rules get broken, Cogan is called in to take care of business. This time a high-stakes card game has been held up by an unknown gang of thugs. Calculating, ruthless, businesslike, and with a shrewd sense of other people's weaknesses, Cogan plies his trade, moving among a variety of hoods, hangers-on, and big-timers, tracking those responsible, and returning "law and order" to the lawless Boston underworld. Combining remarkable wit, crackling dialogue, and a singular ability to show criminal life as it is lived, George V. Higgins builds an incredible story of crime to an unforgettable climax.

Politics of Rightful Killing by Sima Shakhsari Summary

In the early 2000s, mainstream international news outlets celebrated the growth of Weblogistan—the online and real-life transnational network of Iranian bloggers—and depicted it as a liberatory site that gave voice to Iranians. As Sima Shakhsari argues in Politics of Rightful Killing, the common assumptions of Weblogistan as a site of civil society consensus and resistance to state oppression belie its deep internal conflicts. While Weblogistan was an effective venue for some Iranians to “practice democracy,” it served as a valuable site for the United States to surveil bloggers and express anti-Iranian sentiment and policies. At the same time, bloggers used the network to self-police and enforce gender and sexuality norms based on Western liberal values in ways that unwittingly undermined Weblogistan's claims of democratic participation. In this way, Weblogistan became a site of cybergovernmentality, where biopolitical security regimes disciplined and regulated populations. Analyzing online and off-line ethnography, Shakhsari provides an account of digital citizenship that raises questions about the internet's relationship to political engagement, militarism, and democracy.

Kill Me Again by Maggie Shayne Summary

The Joyride Two teenage boys in a borrowed car find a dead man along the roadside… who turns out to be not so dead. The Body The man has been shot in the back of the head, but the steel plate in his skull saved his life. He has no ID and no memory. But in his pocket is Professor Olivia Dupree’s card, with her home address and private number hand written on the back. The Mysterious Stranger Olivia has secrets that could get her killed. It makes her nervous that the reclusive author she invited to be the guest speaker at a private fund raiser, was apparently the target of a professional hit. But that has to be who he is. Aaron Westhaven, the author she’s read so much, he feels like a friend. The card she’s shown is the one she sent him, the handwriting on the back, her own. He was due to arrive the same day the stranger was found. The Assassin An attempt on Olivia’s life proves there is some connection between the dangerous past she’s been hiding from for 16 years, and the people who want Aaron dead. The author himself is sexy as hell, and way tougher than she expected. He knows way more than a hermitic writer should about combat, weapons, and evading authorities. Is it him? She begins to suspect Aaron isn’t Aaron at all, but a killer sent after her by an old enemy from her past. It’s a shame that by then, she’s already fallen for him. “Maggie Shayne’s books have a permanent spot on my keeper shelf. She writes wonderful stories with page-turning thrills. I highly recommend her to any fan of romantic suspense.” #1 New York Times bestselling author KAREN ROBARDS

Killing Me Softly by EBENEZER GYASI Summary

When we look around us, we find so much suffering in the world that we can’t help but ask “Why”? Long time ago God in Hosea 4:6 lamented that his people were being destroyed for the lack of knowledge. His people are still being destroyed today. The question again is “Why”? In John 10:10, Jesus said the devil comes into our lives not to do anything but to steal, kill and destroy. As believers, Jesus has given us the authority over all the powers of the thief, murderer, destroyer, and our real enemy Satan, also known as the devil. Somehow, we seem to have forgotten our spiritual heritage, our spiritual rights and responsibilities, and therefore the devil has taken undue advantage of our ignorance. This book along with the companion end-time spiritual warfare prayer book, Target or Weapon- The Prayer Book provide instructions on how to stand on the Word of God, to help you vanquish the controlling spirits in your life. Let these prayers be part of your daily spiritual exercise. Standing on the Word of God causes a shaking in the spiritual realm on your behalf, because God backs His Word and watches to perform it.

Killing Us Softly by Efrem Smith Summary

The Christian life is actually a kind of death. We die to ourselves, take up our cross, and follow Jesus. Dying in Christ, however, is an opportunity—to experience the comforting presence of the Holy Spirit as we spread the Good News of a God who loves us enough to save us and remake us in his image. Efrem Smith helps us see that Christian discipleship is a counterintuitive life. In a world turned upside down by sin, God carefully and lovingly strips us of worldly values and turns us right-side up as good citizens and ambassadors of his Kingdom.

Twin Roses by Sarah Cross Summary

Pearl and Ruby have always shared everything, including their Snow White and Rose Red curse. When they were little kids, that meant sharing Pop-Tarts and cartoons with Theo, the enchanted bear prince who came to visit them every winter and then disappeared from their lives. At seventeen, sharing is still their way of life—clothes, double dates, and part-time jobs at their mom's café, Twin Roses. Then the harbinger of the second half of their curse shows up—the annoying man who caused the bear prince to be cursed in the first place. They must help him if they want their prince—their fated love—to return to their lives in human form. But there's one little detail. There are two of them, and only one Theo.

About a Boy by Nick Hornby Summary

A wise, hilarious novel from the beloved, award-winning author of Funny Girl, High Fidelity and A Long Way Down. Will Freeman may have discovered the key to dating success: If the simple fact that they were single mothers meant that gorgeous women – women who would not ordinarily look twice a Will – might not only be willing, but enthusiastic about dating him, then he was really onto something. Single mothers – bright, attractive, available women – thousands of them, were all over London. He just had to find them. SPAT: Single Parents – Alone Together. It was a brilliant plan. And Will wasn’t going to let the fact that he didn’t have a child himself hold him back. A fictional two-year-old named Ned wouldn’t be the first thing he’d invented. And it seems to go quite well at first, until he meets an actual twelve-year-old named Marcus, who is more than Will bargained for…

50 years of an iconic classic! This international bestseller and inspiration for a beloved movie is a heroic story of friendship and belonging. No one ever said life was easy.

And he knows that he can count on his friends—true friends who would do anything for him, like Johnny and Two-Bit. But not on much else besides trouble with the Socs, a vicious gang of rich kids whose idea of a good time is beating up on “greasers” like Ponyboy. At least he knows what to expect—until the night someone takes things too far. The Outsiders is a dramatic and enduring work of fiction that laid the groundwork for the YA genre. S. E. Hinton's classic story of a boy who finds himself on the outskirts of regular society remains as powerful today as it was the day it was first published.

Academic Freedom in the Post-9/11 Era by E. Carvalho,D. Downing Summary

Academic freedom has been a principle that undergirds the university since 1915. Beyond this, it also protects a spirit of free inquiry essential to a democratic society. But in the post-9/11 present, the basic principles of academic freedom have been deeply challenged. There have been many startling instances where the rhetoric of national security and terror, corporate interests, and privatization have cast a pall over the terrain of academic freedom. In the post-9/11 university, professors face job loss or tenure denial for speaking against state power, while their students pay more tuition and fall deeper in debt. This timely collection features an impressive assembly of the nation s leading intellectuals, addressing some of the most urgent issues facing higher education in the United States today. Spanning a wide array of disciplinary fields, Academic Freedom in the Post-9/11 Era seeks to intervene on the economic and political crises that are compromising the future of our educational institutions.
