Bu muhtemelen şimdiye kadar okuduğum cinsiyet ve cinsellik hakkında en iyi kitap. Bacaklarınız arasında veya göğsünüzde sahip olduğunuz şeyle mutlaka haritalandırılmamış birçok insan cinselliğinin farklı yönlerini tartışır. Kendilerini tamamen cinsellikleriyle (spor salonu tavşan ibne ve Michigan * barf * Womyn'in Müzik Festivali Nazis) tanımlayan çerez kesici voidoidlerin dünyasında, her diğer düz ilişkide bulunan geniş, kasvetli heteroseksizm denizinden bahsetmiyoruz, her şeyin bir yapı olduğunu ve korktuğunu hissettikleri her şeyin bir yapı olduğunu fark etmekten korkmayan insanlar hakkında okumak güzel ... ve cinsellik ... harika ... ama bu sizin kendi tanımınız değil. Bu kitap geçici olarak hayatımı kurtardı, klişeleşmiş gey veya mide bulantısı düz bir şekilde normların dışındaki kişilerin gerçekte var olduğunu hatırlatan (ağırlıklı olarak hetero / geleneksel bir ilişki / cinsellik kasabasında)!
The Face On The Milk Carton by Caroline B. Cooney is a book about a young girl named Janie Johnson who thinks that she has been kidnapped by her parents. She is allergic to milk but one day, she steals some milk from her best friend Sarah-Charlotte so that she could taste something different that day. However, that completely changed her life. She saw a picture of a young girl on the side of the milk carton. The girl had been kidnapped and it was an appeal for people who had seen her. Janie recognizes the picture -- it was her. It is not the face she recognizes, but the dress. Janie starts to suspect that her parents had kidnapped her. Initially, she thought she could tell no one. However, she meets Reeve, her neighbor, whom she thought is trustworthy. Reeve eventually becomes Janie’s boyfriend and helps Janie in many ways. Eventually, she finds out that her parents did not even know about her being a kidnapped child. Their daughter Hannah left the family to join a cult and then she brings Janie home, claiming that Janie is her daughter. After that, Janie is left with Hannah’s parents while she goes back to the cult. Janie keeps this secret to herself but eventually, her parents find out and everyone suspects that it was probably Hannah who kidnapped Janie. There is a sequel to this book titled Whatever Happened To Janie. You have to read that book to find out the conclusion. But I don't care whether I read it or not. After all, I'm not planning to buy that one. One advantage of having a cheap second-hand book is that you don't have to worry if it was a good or a bad read and you'll not bear any regrets in buying it. I bought this book in Booksale last summer when I'm on the verge of having no book to buy (I always make sure that every time I go to any bookstore, I have to purchase at least one book). This book is very cheap and it only costs 30 pesos. However, I have learned some bits of information while reading this book. First, I never knew that putting missing children's picture on milk cartons really exist, but I'm not sure if it was only in the US. Second, I never knew that there is such a word as "daymare" (which was obviously the opposite of "nightmare"). To sum it all up, the story was as scary as it was disappointing. The end seems to be lacking description and did not make sense. I don't know why, but it was frustrating in an unexplainable kind of way. I rate this book with two stars. It was okay. For me, there was no surprising and exciting part in this novel. It was just a plain young adult fiction and a perfect tool to kill the time.
Bawdy and hilarious. A fun read.
Ishmael Beah, a young boy who lives in Sierra Leone was enjoying life with his family and friends until he had his life turned upside down by war. Rebels invaded his town and killed everyone they saw causing him to flee. He was separated from his family and friends. He roamed for days and went through destroyed villages, seeing all of the dead people gruesomely murdered. After awhile he gets picked up by the army. Where he learned to kill mercilessly and use drugs to numb him from everything around him. For years he killed rebels in the army; he killed hundreds of people. All of this became normal to him; every day of killing was a normal day, until one day UNICEF picks him up. Ishmael goes through rehab and has a difficult time to becoming normal again. He learns to make friends and socialize. He spends a lot of time in rehab, until he is finally reunited with a family member. Until his world was once again turned upside down. I give this book 4.5 out of 5 stars. It was beautifully written. It is a true story and it keeps you on your toes every page turned. This book is full of action and is filled with many different emotions. The only reason I gave this book 4.5 out of 5 was the ending. I won’t give away the ending, but it was not up to expectations. I would definitely recommend this book if you can stomach the gore and gruesomeness of this book. If you need to pick up a book, this is the one.
