By examining the novels of critically and commercially successful authors such as Sarah Dessen ("Someone Like You"), Stephenie Mey...er (the "Twilight" series), and Laurie Halse Anderson ("Speak"), "Reading Like a Girl: Narrative Intimacy in Contemporary American Young Adult Literature" explores the use of narrative intimacy as a means of reflecting and reinforcing larger, often contradictory, cultural expectations regarding adolescent women, interpersonal relationships, and intimacy. "Reading Like a Girl" explains the construction of narrator-reader relationships in recent American novels written about adolescent women and marketed to adolescent women. Sara K. Day explains, though, that such levels of imagined friendship lead to contradictory cultural expectations for the young women so deeply obsessed with reading these novels. Day coins the term narrative intimacy to refer to the implicit relationship between narrator and reader that depends on an imaginary disclosure and trust between the story s narrator and the reader. Through critical examination, the inherent contradictions between this enclosed, imagined relationship and the real expectations for adolescent women s relations prove to be problematic. In many novels for young women, adolescent female narrators construct conceptions of the adolescent woman reader, constructions that allow the narrator to understand the reader as a confidant, a safe and appropriate location for disclosure. At the same time, such novels offer frequent warnings against the sort of unfettered confession the narrators perform. Friendships are marked as potential sites of betrayal and rejection. Romantic relationships are presented as inherently threatening to physical and emotional health. And so, the narrator turns to the reader for an ally who cannot judge. The reader, in turn, may come to depend upon narrative intimacy in order to vicariously explore her own understanding of human expression and bonds." read more
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Volume 3: Shadows of the Past (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Graphic Novels)
"BEla's Letters" is an historical fiction novel based on the life of BEla Ingber. BEla was born before the onset of WWI in MunkAcs..., a small city nestled in the Carpathian Mountains that belonged to the democratic nation of Czechoslovakia until being occupied by fascist Hungary and then by German forces during WW II. BEla and his family were part of an extraordinary Jewish community, known for both its religious fervor and its Zionist movement, that had thrived for centuries until being eradicated less than a year before the end of the war. The book spans the years from 1928, when BEla is a teenager, until his death in 2003. Through both BEla's own voice and various poignant letters sent to him over the years by family members, it tells of BEla's extraordinary experiences during years of harsh imprisonment in the Hungarian labor camp system. The struggles of BEla's nuclear and extended family to comprehend and prepare for the Holocaust are portrayed, as are the fates of various members of a family torn apart by the war and Holocaust and the implausible circumstances that the survivors endure before reuniting. One of BEla's brothers visited the World's Fair in New York in 1940 and was convinced to enlist in the U.S. Army Intelligence Unit. He later participated in the liberation of Paris and acted as an interviewer of Nazi guards at the Buchenwald concentration camp. Another brother escaped to Palestine in 1939 by jumping ship and swimming a mile to shore, and later fought in the British Army. Other siblings survived Auschwitz, Dachau, and Bergen-Belsen. BEla also tells of his first love, a woman who urges him unsuccessfully to emigrate to Palestine with her, and of meeting and falling in love with his wife, Marika Leiner. Marika endures the terror of living on her own as a teenager with false identity papers in a city, Budapest, that is ravaged by some of the fiercest street fighting of the war as well as by the horrors inflicted by Adolph Eichmann and his henchmen t read more
