Kaye Fierch hatırlayabildiği sürece "rock yıldızı" özenti annesiyle ilgileniyor. Şimdi on altı, okulu bıraktı, bir teslimatçı kız olarak bir Çin restoranı için çalışıyor ve şehirden şehre geçme hızına giriyor. Geceye kadar annesinin erkek arkadaşlarından biri onu Philadelphia'daki bir barda öldürmeye çalışır. Kaye ve annesi New Jersey'deki Kaye'nin büyükannesi ile birlikte toplanırlar. Kaye, hayali arkadaş olduğunu düşündüğü şeylerle geçirdiği zamana sevgiyle bakıyor. Sadece şimdi, o kadar emin değil. Yakında, Kaye bir peri şövalyesini kurtarır ve kendisinin tam olarak insan olmadığını öğrenir. Seelie ve Unseelie peri mahkemeleri arasındaki savaşa emilir ve Tithe'ye teklif edilir. Ama Kaye istekli bir "insan" kurbanı mı olacak? Yoksa gizemli şövalye Roiben, onu kendi kraliçesinden kurtarmak için adım atacak mı? Bu kitaba gerçekten giremedim; Fantezi mi yoksa Black'in yazma tarzının başka bir yönünü okumam mı nedeniyle olduğundan emin değilim. Öncül ilginçti, ama hikayenin büyük bir kısmı için kayıp ya da hayal kırıklığına uğradım. Hala Valiant'ı okuyacağım ve devam filminin neye benzediğini göreceğim.

This book left me crippled for hours after reading it. It's a devastating recollection of the terrible evacuation/elimination of Jews from France during WWII. When the main character begins researching this period she immediately finds that delving into this history takes over her life. She becomes overwhelmed by what she learns. I was too. When I put down the book, I needed time to snap back to life - my whole body felt dragged into the story and beat down upon reading a fictionalized account of the Jews in France who were sent to Auschwitz. It was difficult to read such sadness knowing it was based on truth endured by many. By the end, I too felt like the main character - that there was an importance in remembering - to honor those whose lives were taken or shattered by the Holocaust.

Very solid football book. I really hate the Cowboys as a franchise, and some of that hatred stems from their success and sliminess of the 90s. I was in my early teens then, but I knew I didn't like their approach. I didn't like their stars, who were generally classless, I didn't like their attitude, which was brash and unsportsmanlike, and I didn't like their management, which was attention-hungry. Since those heady days of my youth, I hadn't spent much time thinking about the over-the-top 'Boys of the 90s. Reading this book spurred me to further thought about the franchise, and crystallized my feelings about it. It's not that the book contains any huge revelations. It doesn't. But it does have a concise history of the difficulties suffered by the franchise, and ties those difficulties together into a very smooth rise-and-fall narrative. And so, the book didn't tell me anything I didn't already know, but it DID analyze what I was already familiar with in a way I hadn't considered. And that is the book's main strength. Football coverage is obsessed with what's happening right now. Events of last week are an afterthought, events of last year are ancient history, and further back than that are relegated to NFL Films. This book avoids that closed way or thinking, and brings analysis and interest to a journalism field that often lacks both those qualities.
