A new deluxe edition of the international best seller by Heather O´Neill, the Giller-shortlisted author of Daydreams of Angels and The Girl Who Was Saturday Night. Featuring an original foreword from the author, this edition celebrates the 10th anniversary of the coming-of-age story that People describes as ´´a vivid portrait of life on skid row.´´ Baby, all of 13 years old, is lost in the gangly, coltish moment between childhood and the strange pulls and temptations of the adult world. Her mother is dead; her father, Jules, is scarcely more than a child himself and is always on the lookout for his next score. Baby knows that ´´chocolate milk´´ is Jules´ slang for heroin and sees a lot more of that in her house than the real article. But she takes vivid delight in the scrappy bits of happiness and beauty that find their way to her, and moves through the threat of the streets as if she´s been choreographed in a dance. Soon, though, a hazard emerges that is bigger than even her hard-won survival skills can handle. Alphonse, the local pimp, has his eye on her for his new girl; he wants her body and soul - and what the johns don´t take he covets for himself. At the same time, a tender and naively passionate friendship unfolds with a boy from her class at school, who has no notion of the dark claims on her - which even her father, lost on the nod, cannot totally ignore. Jules consigns her to a stint in juvie hall, and for the moment this perceived betrayal preserves Baby from terrible harm - but after that, her salvation has to be her own invention. Channeling the artlessly affecting voice of her 13-year-old heroine with extraordinary accuracy and power, Heather O´Neill´s heartbreaking and wholly original debut novel blew readers away when it was first published 10 years ago. Now it is sure to capture its next decade of readers and listeners as Baby picks her pathway along the edge of the abyss to arrive at a place of red... 1. Language: English.

He´s had to part with everything except his parents and the one thing he would gladly have left behind: his pain-in-the-neck baby sister. But Jason copes with learning the spacer way of life, spacer slang, even the disaster drills his sister makes impossible to get right. Among his new friends are Kia, a girl whose grandparents were cosmonauts, and the bugs his teacher captured on a trip to a distant planet. Kia helps him get spacer ways right, and the bugs sense his homesickness. Everyone thinks Jason´s talk about singing dragons is just the imagination of a lonely boy. But when the class bullies cause a station-wide crisis, it´s up to Jason to use his new skills and all his courage to save the tiny dragons he alone thinks are too smart to be just bugs. 1.

What Is Money?: Why What We Use as Money Matter...
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Much of one´s adult life is spent gathering and protecting what they believe to be money. Given the inordinate amount of time spent by humans trying to obtain money, is it sufficient to simply define it by the name of a national currency or a slang derivative of the official name? The premise of this audiobook is that it is not, for the ability to correctly answer the question ´´What is money?´´ not only marks the difference between taking one´s last breath on the debtor´s or creditor´s side of the ledger, it will determine the very fate of mankind. 1.

Narcissist and his Negativistic Worldview: How ...
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Many narcissists go through life on autopilot. They spew words of disdain and dissatisfaction everywhere they go. This spewing is often a recording of whatever the negativistic adults around him said when the narcissist was a child. He memorized racial attacks, bullying from the adults to subordinates, movie quotes where one person was bullying another, and offensive language that others used around him. The narcissist uses the slang that his equally harsh friends used when they bullied others, or the nasty words his siblings used to taunt him when he was a youngster. Narcissists hate their own life. They hate that they have never fit in. They hate that they were bullied as youngsters. They hate that they were left behind or abandoned by many. They hate that they got bad grades in school. They hate that they flunked out of college. They hate that members of the opposite sex didn´t give them enough attention. They hate that they have a long list of failed relationships, or that they could never get any relationships started at all. Narcissists hate that they can´t live up to the expectations of others. Heck, they can´t even live up to their own expectations. They hate that their parents are disappointed in them. They hate that they can´t sustain meaningful friendships or relationships anywhere they go. They hate that the adults around them always had expectations that were just out of their reach. They hate that they weren´t allowed to play football because of a hovering or over-protective parent. They hate that everything wasn´t served up to them on a silver platter. 1. Language: English.

The Big Exoneration: A Murder Mystery , Hörbuch...
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A modern-day 13-year-old boy and his 10-year-old sister travel back in time to the year 1939 in an attempt to exonerate a private detective wrongly accused of murder. Temporarily staying in a building built in 1918 in downtown Los Angeles, the kids discover a skeleton key that opens the door to the offices of a long dead private detective. Entering, they step back in time to 1939, the year the private detective was executed. In an inner office, they come upon the ghost of the detective trapped in a mirror on the wall. With only two weeks before his presence disappears from the mirror, the detective pleads with the kids to uncover the real murderer and exonerate him of the crime. Taking up the challenge, the kids are hampered by the time constraint, combing for evidence through the unfamiliar bygone days of 1939 Los Angeles and confronting the motley crew of mobsters and molls who inhabit it. However, the kids are helped by the fact they are not recognized as children but as adults. Dressed in the fashions of 1939, and using the skeleton key to open doors to the past throughout Los Angeles, the kids venture out, successfully passing themselves off as gruff 1930s private detectives. With its period slang and references, this novel is an homage to noir detective mysteries of the 1930s and a literary feast for fans of hard-boiled fiction, such as that of Hammett and Chandler. Also, listeners who are familiar with the history of Los Angeles will appreciate the shout outs to Coles, the Fred Harvey House at Union Station, the Aztec Hotel on Route 66, and other local landmarks. 1.
