By the bestselling author of The Killing, The Wrong Girl is the second novel in David Hewson's gripping Detective Pieter Vos series set in Amsterdam. Sinterklaas, a beaming, friendly saint with a white beard, was set to mark his arrival in Amsterdam with a parade so celebrated it would be watched live on television throughout the Netherlands. Today the crowds would run into three hundred thousand or more, and the police presence top four figures. The city centre was closed to all traffic as a golden barge bore Sinterklaas down the Amstel river, surrounded by a throng of private boats full of families trying to get close.' Amsterdam is bursting at the seams with children trying to get a glimpse of their hero and families enjoying the occasion. The police are out in force, struggling to manage the crowds on one of the busiest days of the year. Brigadier Pieter Vos is on duty with his young assistant, Laura Bakker, when the first grenade hits. As Sinterklaas prepares to address the crowds a terrorist outrage grips the heart of the city. In the chaos a young girl wearing a pink jacket is kidnapped. But the abducted child isn't the daughter of an Amsterdam aristocrat as the terrorists first thought. She's the daughter of an impoverished Georgian prostitute, friendless and trapped in the web of vice that is Amsterdam's Red Light District. As the security forces and the police clash over the ensuing investigation the perpetrator's horrifying demands become clear. Vos, trapped in a turf war with state intelligence, tries to unravel a conspiracy that reaches from the brothels of the city to the hierarchy of the security services. And at its heart lies an eight-year-old girl, snatched from a loving mother then ferried from one criminal lair to the next, her life in the balance as Vos and Laura Bakker struggle to uncover the shocking truth behind her abduction. What is the life of one immigrant child worth in the greater political game emerging around them?

They say a life well-lived is the best revenge... Blanche Tucker longs to escape her drop-dead dull life in tiny Boynton, Oklahoma. Then dashing Graham Peyton roars into town. Posing as a film producer, Graham convinces the ambitious but naive teenager to run away with him to a glamorous new life. Instead, Graham uses her as cruelly as a silent picture villain. Yet by luck and by pluck, taking charge of her life, she makes it to Hollywood. Six years later, Blanche has transformed into the celebrated Bianca LaBelle, the reclusive star of a series of adventure films, and Peyton's remains are discovered on a Santa Monica beach. Is there a connection? With all of the twists and turns of a 1920s melodrama, The Wrong Girl follows the daring exploits of a girl who chases her dream from the farm to old Hollywood, while showing just how risky—and rewarding—it can be to go off script.

Two rich and bored junior high school kids, John and Glenn, living in a little town in Texas, decided that they had to do something spectacular, an event that they would remember for the rest of their life, and yes, it eventually turned out that way. What they had in mind was against the law. It was depraved and immoral enough that it could ruin somebody’s life forever. The victim that they had selected was, unfortunately for them, not somebody you could mess with without some serious repercussions and revenge. Her life so far was not a bed of roses, and she had to struggle to stay above water. She was alone and on the streets of New Orleans when she was sixteen years old. Her parents were killed when the hurricane Katrina hit the town. The boy’s parents were the richest and most powerful citizens in their little town. Minor infractions of the law were never enforced, and this made them forget that some events were still against the law abd that it was indecent behavior and would have them punished if caught. This story will make you want to read all the incredible, strange, scary, and wonderful events that the boys and girls have to go through. The story is at the same level of vicious, tender, and dramatic. It will make you angry and upset and, maybe, make you even cry and feel good. It’s a novel where the author can’t tell you too much in this synopsis without ruining the story. I hope you will have the time and desire to read this book. People who did read the book find it to be very entertaining, creative, and passionate, and they find it very hard to put down.

Choosing a career, moving out from their parents’ house, starting college, discovering personal skills, learning to relate. Phew!

Malu is none of those things. On the other hand, she lives life at its fullest and nothing seems to cause her courage and determination to falter. Amid a troublesome relationship with her parents, she unwillingly goes to Law school, where she meets Rafael, a senior student. They become inseparable, even though they’re just friends.

New Directions in Social Theory Education and Embodiment

This book exemplifies the nurturing spirit of inter-discursive debate with a view to opening up new theoretical and empirical insights, understanding, and engagement, with debates on issues relating to pedagogy, policy, equity and embodiment. From a variety of social science perspectives, an international force of contributors apply a multitude of concepts to research agendas which illustrate the multiple ways in which ‘the body’ both impacts culture and is simultaneously and seamlessly positioned and shaped by it, maintaining social reproduction of class and cultural hierarchies and social regulation and control. They attest that once we begin to trace the flow of knowledge and discourses across continents, countries, regions and communities by registering their re-contextualisation, both within various popular pedagogies (e.g., newspapers, film, TV, web pages, IT) and the formal and informal practices of schools, families and peers, we are compelled to appreciate the bewildering complexity of subjectivity and the ways in which it is embodied. Indeed, the chapters suggest that no matter how hegemonic or ubiquitous discursive practices may be, they inevitably tend to generate both intended and unexpected ‘affects’ and ‘effects’: people and populations cannot easily be ‘determined’, suppressed or controlled. This book was originally published as a special issue of Sport, Education and Society.
