Depression and Attempted Suicide in Adolescents: Alan Carr
Scandita dalle cronache pubblicate sul giornale locale, questa e? la storia di come una squadretta di dilettanti di un piccolo villaggio dell?entroterra inglese riesce, partita dopo partita, ad aggiudicarsi la prestigiosa Coppa d?Inghilterra. Forte delle teorie calcistiche di Mr Kossuth ? un professore profugo dall?Ungheria che, avendo fatto uno studio scientifico del gioco, e? convinto di aver trovato i ?sette postulati? indispensabili per il successo ?, della generosita? di Mr Fangfoss ? un magnate locale con due mogli e un odio viscerale per tutti gli aspetti della vita moderna, che volentieri foraggia il club di cui e? presidente ? e dell?apporto decisivo di un ex giocatore professionista caduto in depressione che esce dal suo stato catalettico e ritrova tutta la grinta perduta, questo pugno di calciatori improvvisati gioca contro squadre di ben altra levatura e, senza perdersi d?animo e in maniera del tutto inaspettata, riesce a mietere vittorie tra lo sbalordimento generale. E intorno a loro l?intera comunita? si mobilita in una gara di solidarieta? che dal campo si proietta nella vita di tutti i giorni, sostenendo coralmente un?impresa che viene considerata di importanza capitale per il buon nome di tutti. Dall?autore di Un mese in campagna, un ironico affresco del calcio com?era, fatto di amicizia, impegno e vera passione; una coinvolgente satira della societa? moderna, uno spaccato ironico e amaro sulla vita di provincia che sta lentamente e silenziosamente perdendosi per sempre.

Eleven-year-old Grace Carter has a talent for hiding things. She´s had plenty of practice, burying thoughts and feelings that might anger her strict evangelical pastor father, and concealing the deep intuition she carries inside. The Knowing, as Grace calls it, offers glimpses of people´s pasts and futures. It enables her to see into the depth of her mother´s sadness, and even allows Grace to talk to Isaac, her twin brother who died at birth. To her wise, loving Aunt Pearl, the Knowing is a family gift; to her daddy, it´s close to witchcraft. Grace can´t see into someone´s thoughts without their permission. But it doesn´t take her special talent to know that her small community is harboring its share of secrets. A young girl has gone missing. Within Grace´s own family too, the cracks are widening, as her sisters Hope, Joy, and Chastity enjoy the normal life that eludes Grace. It´s Grace´s kinship with other outsiders that keeps her afloat - Lyle, a gentle, homeless man, and Lola, a free-spirited new girl at school. But when her mother lapses into deep depression after bringing home a new baby, Grace will face a life-changing choice - ignore her gift and become the obedient daughter her father demands, or find the courage to make herself heard, even if it means standing apart.... 1.

Set during the Depression, this haunting historical novel by M. E. Kerr follows two teenage girls - one German, the other American - whose friendship plays out against the quickly shifting political world stage. Jessie Myrer is the daughter of the prison warden in Cayuta County, where there are few foreigners and even fewer Jews. Jessie´s provincial views change when she meets her new across-the-street neighbor. At 15, sophisticated, German-born Elisa Stadler is a year older than Jessie. The girls would seem to have little in common, yet they soon become the best of friends. Then one night, they hear the music of the prison band´s spellbinding solo bugler. Convicted murderer and gifted musician Slater Carr is the newest arrival at Cayuta Prison. Jessie and Elisa become obsessed with Slater, who to Jessie is like a local John Dillinger - and who was an unwitting part of a botched robbery in which two people were killed. When a daring escape culminates in murder, Elisa´s family moves back to Germany, where Hitler is rising to power. Years later, Jessie makes a shocking discovery about her long-lost friend. Your Eyes in Stars is a stunning novel about friendship, prejudice, assimilation, and the end of innocence. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Amy McFadden.
