Thick with suspense and simmering with adolescent turmoil, Bad Girls is an action-adventure survival story that pits a group of troubled teens against a forbidding tropical landscape, an elusive enemy, and, worst of all, each other. It's Mean Girls meets Lord of the Flies, and it marks the debut of an innovative new voice in fiction. Anna Wheeler's parents have had it up to here. They can't seem to control their daughter anymore and so, one night, Anna's yanked from her bed and carted off to Camp Archstone -- bootcamp for troubled teen girls. There, on a vast, remote, sparsely populated island, Anna will be expected to change her ways and repent for the sins her religious father just can't seem to forgive. Here's a hint: There's a boy involved. No, a man. Life at Camp Archstone is Anna's worst nightmare. Every minute of the day is scheduled, the counselors are hardcore, and one girl is crueler than the next. But when a grueling hike into the forest goes horribly wrong, things go from bad to worse. Stalked by an unknown foe and left to fend for themselves, the girls band together to try to find their way back to civilization -- and that's when the real trouble begins.

Bad Girls examines representational practices of film and television stories beginning with post-Vietnam cinema and ending with postfeminisms and contemporary public disputes over women in the military. The book explores a diverse range of popular media texts, from the Alien saga to Ally McBeal and Sex and the City, from The Net and VR5 to Sportsnight and G.I. Jane. The research is framed as a study of intergenerational tensions in portrayals of women and public institutions – in careers, governmental service, and interactions with technology. Using iconic texts and their contexts as a primary focus, this book offers a rhetorical and cultural history of the tensions between remembering and forgetting in representations of the American feminist movement between 1979 and 2005. Looking forward, the book sets an agenda for discussion of gender issues over the next twenty-five years and articulates with authority the manner in which «transgression» itself has become a site of struggle.

It was a quiet summer night, and the streets appeared to be calm, but violence pierced the sky. High above ground, combing the rooftops for potential threats, stood a defending champion! My name is Frankie Patrice Marie Williams. Fifteen years ago, I was adopted and showered with love by the Ping family. It was a family that treasured values and tradition that trickled down from generation to generation. I was given a gift, something far more treacherous and priceless than diamonds and pearl: the art of Tai Chi! I was trained into a fi erce warrior. Some say it’s a blessing; others say it’s a curse. But I say differently. I’m a bad bitch, without a choice! I don’t rehearse or prepare. They have taken my soul mate and threatened my unborn child. For that, there will be a third coming!

Although eighth grade is halfway over, Mikey never does anything halfway. So it’s no surprise that when she develops a not-so-secret crush on Shawn Macavity, the heartstoppingly gorgeous star of the school play, she goes a bit overboard. Soon Mikey—Mikey?—has a stylish new wardrobe, and she’s baking Shawn cookies, writing their initials on blackboards, even buying him a T-shirt emblazoned “I LOVE ME.” Fellow Bad Girl Margalo tries to get Mikey to turn things down a notch, but why should Mikey listen to her? After all, what does Margalo know about being in love? Or is Margalo hiding a romantic fantasy of her own? In this fourth book in Cynthia Voigt's Bad Girls series, as Mikey and Margalo struggle to understand that funny thing called love, they find that boys may come and go, but bad girls are bad for life.

Linda S. Kauffman turns the pornography debate on its head with this audacious analysis of recent taboo-shattering fiction, film, and performance art. Investigating the role of fantasy in art, politics, and popular culture, she shows how technological advances in medicine and science (magnetic resonance imaging, computers, and telecommunications) have profoundly altered our concepts of the human body. Cyberspace is producing new forms of identity and subjectivity. The novelists, filmmakers, and performers in Bad Girls and Sick Boys are the interpreters of these brave new worlds, cartographers who are busy mapping the fin-de-millennium environment that already envelops us. Bad Girls and Sick Boys offers a vital and entertaining tour of the current cultural landscape. Kauffman boldly connects the dots between the radical artists who shatter taboos and challenge legal and aesthetic conventions. She links writers like John Hawkes and Robert Coover to Kathy Acker and William Vollmann; filmmakers like Ngozi Onwurah and Isaac Julien to Brian De Palma and Gus Van Sant; and performers like Carolee Schneemann and Annie Sprinkle to the visual arts. Kauffman's lively interviews with J. G. Ballard, David Cronenberg, Bob Flanagan, and Orlan add an extraordinary dimension to her timely and convincing argument.

Keine echten Namen. Keine Telefonnummern. Kein zweites Date. Und vor allem: Verlieb dich nicht. Niemals. Das sind die Grundprinzipien der Freundinnen Hallie und Becky, die den Spieß in Sachen Dates einfach umgedreht haben und Männer nur kennenlernen, um Spaß mit ihnen zu haben. Eine Beziehung: Fehlanzeige. Ein zweites Date? Nie im Leben. Sesshaft werden? Nicht mit den Beiden. Hallie Hollister datet Männer nur, um Spaß mit ihnen zu haben und eine heiße Nacht mit ihnen zu verbringen. Falsche Namen und ausgedachte Jobs sind dabei genauso selbstverständlich, wie die Telefonnummer eines Chinarestaurants, die sie ihren Bekanntschaften gibt, sollten die sie nach ihrer Nummer fragen. Als Hallie eine Nacht mit dem attraktiven Arzt Chris verbringt, wird ihre Welt durcheinandergeworfen. Sie bekommt den Womanzier mit den tollen braunen Augen einfach nicht mehr aus dem Kopf. Dass Chris ihr außerdem dauernd zufällig begegnet, macht die Sache auch nicht unbedingt leichter. Und als die beiden sich schließlich näher kommen, nimmt das Chaos seinen Lauf, denn ... böse Mädchen verlieben sich nicht, oder etwa doch? "Bad Girls don't love - Hallie & Chris" ist der erste Band der zweiteiligen "Bad Girls don't love"-Reihe. Der Roman ist in sich abgeschlossen und kann unabhängig von Band zwei gelesen werden. Band zwei "Becky & Hunter" erscheint im März 2019.

Though often thought of as primarily a male vehicle, the film noir offered some of the most complex female roles of any movies of the 1940s and 1950s. Stars such as Barbara Stanwyck, Gene Tierney and Joan Crawford produced some of their finest performances in noir movies, while such lesser known actresses as Peggie Castle, Hope Emerson and Helen Walker made a lasting impression with their roles in the genre. These six women and 43 others who were most frequently featured in films noirs are profiled here, focusing primarily on their work in the genre and its impact on their careers. A filmography of all noir appearances is provided for each actress.
