In October 1968, teenager Denise Reid falls asleep one evening just like every night. So does, in October, 2012, Taylor Williams, also 17 years old. In the morning, they discover they exchanged personalities. Denise wakes up in 2012, in Taylor's body. Taylor now occupies Denise's body and time. Each must learn to cope with the forty-four year-switch. And each attends a presidential campaign speech central to a European billionaire's plot to destroy the United States. His plan? Assassinate presidential candidate Richard Nixon in 1968 and President Obama, running for reelection, in 2012. Only Denise and Taylor stand between him and success, but how can two teenaged girls stop the armed killers? To Denise, 2012 and cell phones, personal computers, and $6 per gallon gasoline come straight out of an episode of The Jetsons. To Taylor, 1968 feels like a museum come to life. The pink Princess telephone won't work unless plugged into the wall. Typewriters. Clothes either too demure or too outlandish. However, her high school teachers horrify Denise the worst. They criticize the United States more than the hippies of her time. Teachers! And the students agree! But not all. Soon she meets Andre, who writes the blog the Voice of Young Black Republicans. She doesn't know a blog from Wi-Fi, but he answers her many questions. He takes her to a meeting of a conservative. He doesn't know an inner circle of the group, manipulated by an agent of the European billionaire, plans to meet President Obama's upcoming campaign speech with bullets instead of protest signs. Taylor hates Denise's annoying boyfriend, but comes to rely on the hippie Georgie. He helps her find the ancient library book that promises to send her back to 2012. Georgie also tells Taylor of the Black Cougars' plan -- also caused by manipulation by the European billionaire -- to assassinate Richard Nixon when he makes a campaign speech. Taylor thinks it's not her problem until Georgie convinces her Nixon's death by assassination in 1968 would plunge the United States into violence and chaos . . . that would inevitably change 2012 as she (and we) know it. Georgie proclaims himself a lover, not a fighter, and he won't stand by and watch his country overrun by hate. And Taylor loves Georgie. How can the two teenage girls, in shock from time travel lag, stop two presidential level assassions separated by forty-four years? And what happens when they must return to their own years? In this teenage adventure fiction, two teenage girls battle ruthless men determined to carry out the crimes of two centuries. An unusual young adult time travel adventure and romance. Two presidential level assassinations that don't occur in history as we now know it -- but young adult time travel political thriller, a powerful, wealthy man plans to change that. He hates history as we know it, because the United States remains strong. To download this exciting teenage paranormal thriller, just scroll up now.

When we imagine the activities of Asian American women in the mid-twentieth century, our first thoughts are not of skiing, beauty pageants, magazine reading, and sororities. Yet, Shirley Jennifer Lim argues, these are precisely the sorts of leisure practices many second generation Chinese, Filipina, and Japanese American women engaged in during this time. In A Feeling of Belonging, Lim highlights the cultural activities of young, predominantly unmarried Asian American women from 1930 to 1960. This period marks a crucial generation—the first in which American-born Asians formed a critical mass and began to make their presence felt in the United States. Though they were distinguished from previous generations by their American citizenship, it was only through these seemingly mundane “American”activities that they were able to overcome two-dimensional stereotypes of themselves as kimono-clad “Orientals.” Lim traces the diverse ways in which these young women sought claim to cultural citizenship, exploring such topics as the nation's first Asian American sorority, Chi Alpha Δ the cultural work of Chinese American actress Anna May Wong; Asian American youth culture and beauty pageants; and the achievement of fame of three foreign-born Asian women in the late 1950s. By wearing poodle skirts, going to the beach, and producing magazines, she argues, they asserted not just their American-ness, but their humanity: a feeling of belonging.
What are the features of the school environment that make students' of color incorporation greater at some schools than at others? Prudence L. Carter seeks to answer this basic but bedeviling question through a rich comparative analysis of the organizational and group dynamics in eight schools located within four cities in the United States and South Africa-two nations rebounding from centuries of overt practices of racial and social inequality. Stubborn Roots provides insight into how school communities can better incorporate previously disadvantaged groups and engender equity by addressing socio-cultural contexts and promoting "cultural flexibility." It also raises important and timely questions about the social, political, and philosophical purposes of multiracial schooling that have been greatly ignored by many, and cautions against narrow approaches to education that merely focus on test-scores and resources. "There are simply not enough texts that look comparatively at the two foremost experiments with questions of race, culture, and class in the English-speaking world, the United States and South Africa. Prudence Carter's work is simultaneously scholarly and compassionate. It helps us see, in these two benighted but globally important societies, how easily things break, but also how well, when structures are in place and when human agency takes flight, individuals and the groups to which they belong flourish and grow." - Crain Soudien, Professor of Education, University of Cape Town "In this ambitious mixed-method study, Carter analyzes the social and symbolic boundaries that account for disparate educational experiences by race in the United States and South Africa. Resources are only part of the answer; equally important, she argues, are the cultural and institutional conditions that make students feel they are valued contributors of the community. Thus, school policies about hairstyle, dress codes, tracking, extracurricular activities, and language use are among the important dimensions that enable or discourage engagement in students. Educators, policymakers, and scholars alike have much to learn from this agenda-setting work." -Michele Lamont, Harvard University Author of The Dignity of Working Men: Morality and the Boundaries of Race, Class and Immigration "Prudence Carter's remarkable book shines a light on the often invisible patterns that perpetuate educational disparity in both the United States and South Africa. Stubborn Roots reveals how racial and ethnic divides are often reinforced, even in supposedly 'integrated' schools and even when many people of good will, try to eradicate them. Carter's insights illuminate how educators and schools can address these issues by becoming increasingly attuned to the socio-cultural worlds in which their students live. This book paves the way for the changes needed for historically disadvantaged groups to receive equitable, high-quality educations." -Linda Darling-Hammond, Charles Ducommun Professor of Education, Stanford University
