The third book in the smart, snarky, and action-packed Heroine series completes the "Heroic Trio" as Bea Tanaka joins her sister, Evie, and diva Aveda Jupiter in their quest to free San Francisco from its demon portal problem If there's one thing Beatrice Tanaka never wanted to be, it's normal. But somehow, her life has unfolded as a series of "should haves." Her powers of emotional projection should have made her one of the most formidable superheroes of all time. And she should have been allowed to join her older sister Evie as a full-fledged protector of San Francisco, pulverizing the city's plethora of demon threats. But Evie and her superheroing partner, Aveda Jupiter, insist on seeing Bea as the impulsive, tempestuous teenager she used to be--even though she's now a responsible adult. And that means Bea is currently living a thoroughly normal life. She works as a bookstore lackey, hangs out with best friends Sam Fujikawa and Leah Kim, and calms her workplace's more difficult customers. Sure, she's not technically supposed to be playing with people's mental states. But given the mundanity of her existence, who can blame her? When a mysterious being starts communicating with Bea, hinting at an evil that's about to overtake the city, she seizes the opportunity, hoping to turn her "should haves" into the fabulous heroic life she's always wanted. But gaining that life may mean sacrificing everything--and everyone--she holds dear...

The worlds of Percy Jackson, Harry Potter, and other modern epics feature the Chosen One—an adolescent boy who defeats the Dark Lord and battles the sorrows of the world. Television’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer represents a different kind of epic—the heroine’s journey, not the hero’s. This provocative study explores how Buffy blends 1990s girl power and the path of the warrior woman with the oldest of mythic traditions. It chronicles her descent into death and subsequent return like the great goddesses of antiquity. As she sacrifices her life for the helpless, Buffy experiences the classic heroine’s quest, ascending to protector and queen in this timeless metaphor for growing into adulthood.

Kerri was well on her way to living the life she had always planned for herself, with a successful career, a husband, and a brand new house waiting to be filled with children. But something didn't feel quite right. She started to listen to a voice inside her that wouldn't settle for feeling mediocre about life. Just at the moment she finds the courage to open new doors for herself, tragedy strikes, and Kerri is pushed into a much deeper metamorphosis than she ever anticipated. Her resulting journey from "meh" to the life of her dreams takes her through dramatic love affairs, magical healing sessions in Bali, a long-awaited family reunion in China, and an immersion in a community of tantric yogis on a tropical island. In this clear and insightful story, Kerri tells us exactly how she found the strength to change her life and re-examine her deepest values without losing her centre, and she gives readers the tools to do the same through provocative questions and exercises.

This dissertation examines the evolution of the caizi-jiaren mode, and ideas about the self, gender, and ethics exhibited in it. My investigation will cover a broad range of texts spanning from the ninth century through the eighteenth century--from Tang chuanqi tales, through Ming-Qing drama, fiction, and tanci--aiming to show how the conventions of romance address cultural and ideological changes, and participate in broader social discourses. I argue that the heroine's quest for love and self is always part of a larger cultural project, fostered by a questioning and new awareness of the place of the individual within the social matrix. I read these romances in the light of the more dynamic modes of gender and desire, with a focus on the working of desire as a dialogue with moral systems and public power, and gender's relation to cultural expression.
