England 1990, die Happy Mondays sind in den Top of the Pops, Margaret Thatchers Regierungszeit neigt sich dem Ende zu, und das Land ächzt unter der Arbeitslosigkeit: Wie soll man bloß in einer Sozialsiedlung in Wolverhampton inmitten einer chaotischen Familie erwachsen werden – mit einem Vater, der seit zwanzig Jahren von einer Karriere als Rockstar träumt und einer Mutter, die, obwohl sie schon drei Kinder hat, eine erneute Schwangerschaft bis zum Geburtstermin als Magenverstimmung deutet? Reicht Johanna Morrigans Trickkiste aus schwarzem Eyeliner, Doc Martens, derben Sprüchen, einem wilden Partystil und einem immensen Wissen über angesagte Popmusik aus, um sich neu zu erfinden, endlich Sex zu haben und die Familie aus der Misere zu retten? Ein intelligenter, sprühend witziger Roman über das Erwachsenwerden, trügerische Rollenbilder und das Glück, ein Kind der Neunzigerjahre zu sein.

***A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER*** A New York Times Book Review “Editors’ Choice” Entertainment Weekly — Thriller Round-Up The Wall Street Journal — 5 Killer Books for 2016 Hollywood Reporter — Hot Summer Books…16 Must Reads “This thriller’s all of your fave page-turners (think: Luckiest Girl Alive, The Girl on the Train, Gone Girl) rolled into one.” —TheSkimm “Both [Gillian] Flynn’s and Miranda’s main characters also reclaim the right of female characters to be more than victim or femme fatale… All the Missing Girls is set to become one of the best books of 2016.” —Los Angeles Review of Books “Extremely interesting…a novel that will probably be called Hitchcockian.” —The New York Times Book Review “Are you paying attention? You’ll need to be; this thriller will test your brain with its reverse chronological structure, and it’s a page-turner to boot.” —Elle Like the spellbinding psychological suspense in The Girl on the Train and Luckiest Girl Alive, Megan Miranda’s novel is a nail-biting, breathtaking story about the disappearances of two young women—a decade apart—told in reverse. It’s been ten years since Nicolette Farrell left her rural hometown after her best friend, Corinne, disappeared from Cooley Ridge without a trace. Back again to tie up loose ends and care for her ailing father, Nic is soon plunged into a shocking drama that reawakens Corinne’s case and breaks open old wounds long since stitched. The decade-old investigation focused on Nic, her brother Daniel, boyfriend Tyler, and Corinne’s boyfriend Jackson. Since then, only Nic has left Cooley Ridge. Daniel and his wife, Laura, are expecting a baby; Jackson works at the town bar; and Tyler is dating Annaleise Carter, Nic’s younger neighbor and the group’s alibi the night Corinne disappeared. Then, within days of Nic’s return, Annaleise goes missing. Told backwards—Day 15 to Day 1—from the time Annaleise goes missing, Nic works to unravel the truth about her younger neighbor’s disappearance, revealing shocking truths about her friends, her family, and what really happened to Corinne that night ten years ago. Like nothing you’ve ever read before, All the Missing Girls delivers in all the right ways. With twists and turns that lead down dark alleys and dead ends, you may think you’re walking a familiar path, but then Megan Miranda turns it all upside down and inside out and leaves us wondering just how far we would be willing to go to protect those we love.

In All the Cool Girls Are Anarchists, I recall my adventures leaving the shelter of a Southeastern suburb for a university, where I found my sister in a community of radical progressives. That first semester, my high school sweetheart broke my heart. I thought we'd go off to college together, get good jobs, and settle down to a boring suburban life like our parents. He ended our relationship, fracturing my world. Soon after, I fell into an intense romance, only to have my heart dashed once again. I flailed, grasping for a way of life that worked. So, I threw myself in with my sister and her unconventional friends.I found these people fascinating. They ate out of dumpsters. They were polyamorous. They recycled and composted religiously and formed a collective for everything. I desperately wanted to be part of them, but always, something didn't feel right. Soon enough, I began to see their world unravel at the edges. That's when I began to fall in love with a graduate student--a redneck scholar who both knew how to work with his hands and philosophize with the best of them. Before I knew it, I was being seduced back to the "dark side"--the world of my parents.

All American Girl

Our image of nineteenth-century American women is generally divided into two broad classifications: victims and revolutionaries. This divide has served the purposes of modern feminists well, allowing them to claim feminism as the only viable role model for women of the nineteenth century. In All-American Girl, however, Frances B. Cogan identifies amid these extremes a third ideal of femininity: the “Real Woman.” Cogan's Real Woman exists in advice books and manuals, as well as in magazine short stories whose characters did not dedicate their lives to passivity or demand the vote. Appearing in the popular reading of middle-class America from 1842 to 1880, these women embodied qualities that neither the “True Women”—conventional ladies of leisure—nor the early feminists fully advocated, such as intelligence, physical fitness, self sufficiency, economic self-reliance, judicious marriage, and a balance between self and family. Cogan's All-American Girl reveals a system of feminine values that demanded women be neither idle nor militant.
