Since the early 2000s, Disney Channel has been dominated by original live-action programming popular among tween girls. The shows’ successes rely not only on their popularity among girl audiences, but also on the development of star personae by girl performers, such as Raven-Symoné, Miley Cyrus, and Selena Gomez. In addition, these programs and their performers have spawned lucrative media and merchandising franchises for the Walt Disney Company. This book includes analyses of this Disney Channel programming, as well as Disney corporate reports and executive statements, together with Disney Channel stars’ performances, promotional appearances, media production, philanthropic efforts, and entrepreneurism. Analyzing these texts, performances, activities, and personae, it considers the ways in which they reproduce celebrity, visibility, and feminine performativity as central to successful twenty-first century girlhood.

An engaging tween novel by Andrea Stein, Saving Hannah is the sort of book that encourages girls to think beyond reality television and fruit-flavored lip-gloss. Meet Rose, her parents decide to start an organic farm, which transplants her from Manhattan to rural Weston. She's not happy about this until she takes part in a contest sponsored by the Atlas Institute for Leadership-the grand prize is a trip to New York City. Her teammates in the challenge are Poppy, a science geek, Daisy, a bad girl gamer, and Lily, an overachieving know-it-all. With her eye on the Big Apple, Rose recovers a diary in the library that clears a founding member of Weston of wrongdoings and learns that each of her new gal pals brings something to the table to outsmart the mayor, rival teams, and the cagey Dr. Smith who concocted the entire contest as a plot that's anything but civic-minded. This debut is first in a series about their girl power adventures.

When I got out of the service at age 21 ,I decided I was going to make my fortune in Real Estate , so I purchased with my discharge pay a large house with 7 bedrooms and two bathrooms and made my fi rst rooming house. I converted the porch and the Dining room into 2 more bedrooms, making a total of 9 bedrooms which I rented out in whose days for $50.00 a week each. I didnt give anyone use of the kitchen and I didnt allow anyone to have company, you just went directly to your room and basically went to sleep and that was it. I allowed no food in rooms or any loud noise after 10 PM. It was a great place if you had a job and you were making minimum wage. My mortgage payment was $250.00 a month , my electric bill was $165.00, My gas bill averaged 150 a month year around and because I had a well and septic tank , even getting them pumped out and serviced a couple times a year, only cost me an average of $35.00 a month. My Insurance ran me only $50.00 a month, about $25.00 a month for maintenance, so the expenses were $ 670.00 per month. My Income was $1330.00 a month on my first property net. There I was back in the late 1950s making over $17,000 a year ,not working for anybody. It was very important to get a lot of information about your tenants such as next of kin, Mother and fathers name and address, social security #,Employers Name, Landlord history, last job ect. I always had an application ready for them to full out. That way if they do any damage to your property you can chase them down.

Die mehrfach ausgezeichnete Schauspielerin Drew Barrymore erzählt die lustigsten, eindrucksvollsten und ergreifendsten Geschichten aus ihrem Leben. Angefangen bei ihrer Jugend als Kinderstar, über die skandalträchtigen Teenager-Jahre bis hin zu ihrem heutigen Leben als glückliche Mutter von zwei Töchtern. Wildflower ist ein Porträt von Drews Leben in einzelnen Geschichten, in denen sie zurückblickt auf ein bewegtes Leben voller Abenteuer, Herausforderungen und unglaublicher Erfahrungen. Weshalb das Wäschewaschen ihr, als sie mit 14 Jahren alleine lebte, möglicherweise das Leben rettete, wie sie in den Randbezirken von New Orleans einmal mit einem Wohnmobil unter einem Tankstellendach feststeckte, wie sie ganz persönlich Abschied von ihrem Vater nahm, der diese Rolle niemals erfüllte, weshalb sie mit Cameron Diaz auf der Suche nach dem ultimativen Adrenalinkick Fallschirmspringen ging – all diese und noch viele weitere Geschichten und Erfahrungen sind in Wildflower enthalten. Ein buntes Bouquet von Geschichten einer faszinierenden Frau, Mutter und Persönlichkeit. »Eine reine Freude ... Wenn Sie Drew Barrymore bisher nur sympathisch fanden ... nach der Lektüre ihrer Essays werden Sie sie vergöttern.« - New York Times Book Review
