I collapsed on the floor, gasping for breath. “Are you her?” A voice asked. “She is.” Whirling around, I drew my knife, and saw two piercing blue eyes looking out at me from beneath a crop of dark brown hair.

When the Metropolitan Police fail to realise a serial killer is at work, London ignites over the fact that the killer's victims are young black and mixed race boys. Institutionalised racism is claimed by the community's activists and tabloids alike. Acting Superintendent Thomas Lynley is given the case, and his Scotland Yard task force is soon handling more killings and a looming tragedy. Elizabeth George brings to the familiar subject of the serial killer a freshness and clarity of vision that provide illuminating insight into the psychological complexity of the tortured criminal mind. She does so within a richly textured, thrillingly suspenseful narrative that defies any reader to predict its outcome. Nor does she neglect our favourite characters, whose private lives provide an engrossing counterpoint to their professional duties.

When Doctor Altman taught his twelve-year-old daughter Mary about medicine, Abraham Lincoln, and freedom, he never imagined all three would soon be illegal, but living in Nazi Germany brought many unexpected changes to their lives. Doctor Altman is being forced to comply with the wishes of Hitler's closest officers, the Black Coats, and Mary soon discovers she must keep her opinions of freedom secret or she'll put her family's lives in danger. Their only hope is that the Allies win the Battle of Berlin and Hitler surrenders. After the war, Mary's family escapes to America, but once she gets there, Mary unwittingly becomes mixed up with the wrong people, endangering her family's American dreams. With the help of Raphael, an immigrant teen, and his father, who have a surprising connection to Mary's German childhood, Mary quickly learns that freedom doesn't mean doing whatever you want. Filled with life lessons, a little romance, and plenty of humor and set against the historical backdrop of World War II, One Girl's Dream for Freedom is an engaging and exciting story of the difficult teenage years that readers of any age will enjoy.

For some time, reality TV, talk shows, soap-operas, and sitcoms have turned their spotlights on women and girls who thrive on competition and nastiness. Few fairytales lack the evil stepmother, wicked witch, or jealous sister. Even cartoons feature mean and sassy girls who only become sweet and innocent when adults appear. And recently, popular books and magazines have turned their gaze away from ways of positively influencing girls' independence and self-esteem and towards the topic of girls' meanness to other girls. What does this say about the way our culture views girlhood? How much do these portrayals affect the way girls view themselves? In Girlfighting, psychologist and educator Lyn Mikel Brown scrutinizes the way our culture nurtures and reinforces this sort of meanness in girls. She argues that the old adage “girls will be girls”—gossipy, competitive, cliquish, backstabbing— and the idea that fighting is part of a developmental stage or a rite-of-passage, are not acceptable explanations. Instead, she asserts, girls are discouraged from expressing strong feelings and are pressured to fulfill unrealistic expectations, to be popular, and struggle to find their way in a society that still reinforces gender stereotypes and places greater value on boys. Under such pressure, in their frustration and anger, girls (often unconsciously) find it less risky to take out their fears and anxieties on other girls instead of challenging the ways boys treat them, the way the media represents them, or the way the culture at large supports sexist practices. Girlfighting traces the changes in girls' thoughts, actions and feelings from childhood into young adulthood, providing the developmental understanding and theoretical explanation often lacking in other conversations. Through interviews with over 400 girls of diverse racial, economic, and geographic backgrounds, Brown chronicles the labyrinthine journey girls take from direct and outspoken children who like and trust other girls, to distrusting and competitive young women. She argues that this familiar pathway can and should be interrupted and provides ways to move beyond girlfighting to build girl allies and to support coalitions among girls. By allowing the voices of girls to be heard, Brown demonstrates the complex and often contradictory realities girls face, helping us to better understand and critique the socializing forces in their lives and challenging us to rethink the messages we send them.
