She feels like a creature out of a fairy tale; a girl who discovers that her bones are really made out of stone, that her skin is really as thin as glass, that her hair is brittle as straw, that her tears have dried up so that she cries only salt. Maybe that's why it doesn't hurt when she presses hard enough to begin bleeding: it doesn't hurt, because she's not real anymore. Sethie Weiss is hungry, a mean, angry kind of hunger that feels like a piece of glass in her belly. She’s managed to get down to 111 pounds and knows that with a little more hard work—a few more meals skipped, a few more snacks vomited away—she can force the number on the scale even lower. She will work on her body the same way she worked to get her perfect grades, to finish her college applications early, to get her first kiss from Shaw, the boy she loves, the boy who isn’t quite her boyfriend. Sethie will not allow herself one slip, not one bad day, not one break in concentration. Her body is there for her to work on when everything and everyone else—her best friend, her schoolwork, and Shaw—are gone. From critically acclaimed writer Alyssa B. Sheinmel comes an unflinching and unparalleled portrayal of one girl’s withdrawal, until she is sinking like a stone into her own illness, her own loneliness—her own self.

Maybe that's why it doesn't hurt when she presses hard enough to begin bleeding: it doesn't hurt, because she's not real anymore. High school senior Sarah Beth (Sethie) Weiss is disciplined. She has never cut a class in her life, has never had a grade below a B+, and has always been a favorite among her teachers. Her college applications are finished and she only ate six Ritz crackers today. But even on days when Sethie needs to eat more, there's always the toilet to make up for her mistakes. Sethie manages to get down to 104, and maybe if she works just a little bit harder, becomes a little more disciplined, she can get below 100. Truth be told, Sethie has more to worry about than her relationship with her body; but the...

Erwachsenwerden tut manchmal verdammt weh Von außen betrachtet ist Sethies Leben perfekt: Sie besucht eine New Yorker Privatschule, sie besteht den Zulassungstest fürs College mit der höchsten Punktzahl und natürlich hat sie auch schon einen festen Freund, Shaw, den sie zwar ein bisschen mehr liebt als er sie, aber das ist schon in Ordnung. Zumindest, solange Sethie nicht weiter darüber nachdenkt. Doch sie denkt sehr oft nach. Über sich, ihr Leben, ihren Körper. Und dann bekommt ihre Welt Risse, und sie hat das Gefühl, dass ihr alles entgleitet. Die 17-jährige Sethie hat alles im Griff : In der Schule ist sie gut, war sie schon immer, in der Freizeit hängt sie mit coolen Jungen und Mädchen herum, und die Sache mit Shaw, ihrem ersten richtigen Freund, kommt langsam auch in Schwung. Nur das mit dem Essen ist ein täglicher Kampf für Sethie, jedes Stück Pizza, jeder Snack in der Schulcafeteria ist eine neue Herausforderung – und Sethie hat ständig Hunger. Die anderen Mädchen essen scheinbar den ganzen Tag und werden immer dünner. Nur Sethie nicht, dabei hätte sie so gern einen Körper wie die zerbrechlichen und doch so starken Gestalten aus den Märchen ihrer Kindheit, mit Knochen aus Stein, einer Haut aus Glas und Haaren aus Gold ... Doch Sethie arbeitet an sich, und jeden Tag kommt sie ihrem Traum ein wenig näher.

Kneeling to receive Holy Communion at St Saviour's Church in Dublin one Sunday, it suddenly dawns on Magda Finnan how she can earn God's blessing. She vows to kill Father Doran.A cleaner at the St Cosmo Care Home for the Elderly, the nineteen-year old remains haunted by her upbringing in a Magdalene orphanage. Among her memories of discipline, prescription and the ever-present fear of damnation, one image in particular defies the passage of time: her best friend, Lucy, falling down the deep stairwell to her death.Struggling to reconcile the Order's all-pervading principles with the reality of 20th Century Dublin, she encounters a world that is also labouring under traditional religious strictures and an ingrained sense of English oppression, and the illiterate Magda finds herself dreaming of a better life she can barely imagine.However, as the ghosts of the past refuse to lie quiet, a very different revelation awaits her. Ultimately, she will have to realise that everything she most believes in might not be God's truth after all, and that she will need more than faith in herself to survive.

Poppet Montague-Jones is 15, 87th in line to the British throne and soon to inherit a whopping trust fund. Unlike her sister Kitten - legendary wild child and society columnist in London Alive (see Diary of a Chav), Poppet is a troubled and ill-fitting teenager who is at an impressionable age, and doesn't quite know how to launch herself into the world. Poppet spends much of her time daydreaming and getting bossed about by her flamboyant school friends, Vixen Blaze Brocklehurst and Striker Earhart. Between them, the girls get up to all sorts of high jinks a la St Trinians at school and in their stinkingly rich 'hood', not giving much thought to their future. They're rich, so who cares! Poppet's Mum Saskia has her future in hand anyway: a career in fashion and marriage to nice, loaded, Felix Hayes Burlington across the road. Thing is, Poppet is not entirely sure it's what she really wants. Isn't there more to life than charity lunches and yoga? Is Poppet destined for a life of designer grunge and decadence without lifting a finger to earn her own living, or is she brave enough to break out of the mould?

A gorgeous, full-color oversized book about educating girls across the world inspired by the documentary that Entertainment Weekly says “every mother, sister, daughter, should see, as well as the men who love and support them.” This is the right book for the present moment and perfect for fans of inspirational nonfiction such as I Am Malala and anyone who believes that one girl can change the world. Worldwide, over 62 million girls are not in school. But one girl with courage is a revolution. Girl Rising, a global campaign for girls’ education, created a film that chronicled the stories of nine girls in the developing world, allowing viewers the opportunity to witness how education can break the cycle of poverty. Now, award-winning author Tanya Lee Stone deftly uses new research to illuminate the dramatic facts behind the film, focusing both on the girls captured on camera and many others. She examines barriers to education in depth—early child marriage and childbearing, slavery, sexual trafficking, gender discrimination, and poverty—and shows how removing these barriers means not only a better life for girls, but safer, healthier, and more prosperous communities. With full-color photos from the film, infographics, and a compelling narrative, Girl Rising will inspire readers of all ages to join together in a growing movement to help change the world. “A moving account of hardships and triumphs that is bound to inspire future activists, this is a devastating but crucial read.” —Kirkus Reviews, Starred Additional Praise for the Film: “Delivers . . . tangible hope that the world can be healed in a better future.” —Meryl Streep “Girl Rising stands as a testament to the power of information.” —The Los Angeles Times

“After years of wandering around the world of love, I found the truth about it. I met face-to-face with that wonderful fairy Love, and she shared with me that despite the pain that was tearing her apart, she is very happy and didn’t want to part with it. In my fantasy, that fairy was standing smiling among the deserted sands and was holding a heart in love. There was blood dripping from her hands, but she looked hard and firm. She split the heart in two and threw the two halves away from her. They fell with ominous strength on the glowing sand, started burning, and burned away. The fairy told me that that had been my heart, and that this evil destiny awaited it. She opened her scarlet lips and said that love hurts and it was like a cloud, which carried many tears to my eyes in love. Nevertheless, I decided to follow my heart, and it was saying: “When Love looks you in the eyes, you will know, I will tell you, and then you take it right away, hold it tight, hide it here with me, to be happy.’”
