Canyon has turned his back on God, who had slammed a door shut on his life when his twelve-year-old sister died. Two months later, although still reeling from the tragedy, Canyon is finally ready to give God a chance to take his sorrow and comfort him. Minutes after making that decision, he's wrongfully accused of the murder of a police sergeant in his southern California hometown of Spearpointe and eventually finds himself living as a fugitive in northern California. In the small northern California town of Ackerley, Marlin Armstrong, a lieutenant on the police force, is still grieving from the death of his wife two years earlier. His older daughter, Ashlyn, has a propensity to pick up hitchhikers and help out down-on-their luck homeless animals and people. The separate arrivals of two strangers-Kaylie and, Ashlyn's latest "project," Tanek-raise doubts, suspicions, and questions that seem at first to be impossible to find answers to. They come together in a series of events that leads Canyon on a journey of loss and redemption, happiness and sorrow, and anger and forgiveness that affects not only him but also all those he comes into contact with. Any logical paths that he tries to follow only result in more closed doors. Will Canyon finally restore his trust in God and climb through the window that God opened for him, the one that appears to lead to being convicted of a series of brutal murders he did not commit?

The Book of Mac

The Book of Mac PDF Book Detail Author: Donna-Claire Chesman
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
ISBN: 163758069X
Category : Music
Languages : en
Pages : 320

Book Description
An album-by-album celebration of the life and music of Mac Miller through oral histories, intimate reflections, and critical examinations of his enduring work. “One of my most vivid memories of him is the way he would look at you while he was playing you a song. He tried to look you right in the eyes to see how you were feeling about it.” —Will Kalson, friend and first manager Following Mac Miller’s tragic passing in 2018, Donna-Claire Chesman dedicated a year to chronicling his work through the unique lens of her relationship to the music and Mac’s singular relationship to his fans. Like many who’d been following him since he’d started releasing mixtapes at eighteen years old, she felt as if she’d come of age alongside the rapidly evolving artist, with his music being crucial to her personal development. “I want people to remember his humanity as they’re listening to the music, to realize how much bravery and courage it takes to be that honest, be that self-aware, and be that real about things going on internally. He let us witness that entire journey. He never hid that.” —Kehlani, friend and musician. The project evolved to include intimate interviews with many of Mac’s closest friends and collaborators, from his Most Dope Family in Pittsburgh to the producers and musicians who assisted him in making his everlasting music, including Big Jerm, Rex Arrow, Wiz Khalifa, Benjy Grinberg, Just Blaze, Josh Berg, Syd, Thundercat, and more. These voices, along with the author’s commentary, provide a vivid and poignant portrait of this astonishing artist—one who had just released a series of increasingly complex albums, demonstrating what a musical force he was and how heartbreaking it was to lose him. “As I’m reading the lyrics, it’s crazy. It’s him telling us that he hopes we can always respect him. I feel like this is a message from him, spiritually. A lot of the time, his music was like little letters and messages to his friends, family, and people he loved, to remind them of who he really was.” —Quentin Cuff, best friend and tour manager

Fictions of Adolescent Carnality

Fictions of Adolescent Carnality PDF Book Detail Author: Lydia Kokkola
Publisher: John Benjamins Publishing
ISBN: 9027272042
Category : Literary Criticism
Languages : en
Pages : 236

Book Description
Fictions of Adolescent Carnality considers one of the most controversial topics related to adolescents: their experience of desire. In fiction for adolescents, carnal desire is variously presented as a source of angst, an overwhelming experience over which one has no control, bestial, disgusting and, just occasionally, a source of pleasure. The on-set of desire, within the Anglophone tradition, has been closely associated with the loss of innocence and the end of childhood. Drawing on a corpus of 200 narratives of adolescent desire, Kokkola examines the connections between sociological accounts of teenagers’ sexual behaviour, adult fears for and about their off-spring and fictional representations of adolescents exploring their sexuality. Taking up topics such as adolescent pregnancy and parenthood, queer sexualities, animal-human connections and sexual abuse, Kokkola provides wide-ranging insights into how Anglophone literature responds to adolescents’ carnal desires, and contributes to on-going debates on the construction of adolescence and the ideology of innocence.

Learning Curves

Learning Curves PDF Book Detail Author: Beth Younger
Publisher: Scarecrow Press
ISBN: 0810869500
Category : Literary Criticism
Languages : en
Pages : 166

Book Description
Adolescence is a time of growth, change, and confusion for young women. During this transition from childhood to adulthood, sex and gender roles become more important. Meanwhile, depictions of females_from the hyper-sexualized girls of music videos to the chaste repression of Purity Balls_send mixed messages to young women about their bodies and their sexuality. Over the last several decades, authors of young adult novels have been challenged to reflect this concern in their work and have responded with varying degrees of success. In Learning Curves: Body Image and Female Sexuality in Young Adult Literature, Beth Younger examines how cultural assumptions and social constraints are reinforced and complicated through common representations of young women. Each chapter analyzes a recurrent theme in the history of young adult literature, including issues of body image, pregnancy, abortion, lesbianism, and romance. By examining selected novels for their sexual content, situating them within their social and historical context, and analyzing their discursive qualities, the author reveals the multitude of complex ways that society depicts teenagers and their sexualities and offers a critique of patriarchal culture that gives value to the female experience.
