From the highly acclaimed, best-selling National Book Award finalist and author of A Short History of Women, a searing and timely novel about a teenage girl, a charismatic teacher, and a dark, open secret. They were on a lark, three teenage girls speeding across the greens on a ´´borrowed” golf cart, at night, drunk. The cart crashes and one of the girls lands violently in the rough, killed instantly. The driver, Jo, flees the hometown that has turned against her and enrolls at a prestigious boarding school. Her past weighs on her. She is responsible for the death of her best friend. She has tipped her parents’ rocky marriage into demise. She is ready to begin again, far away from the accident. Taut, propulsive and devastating, His Favorites reveals the interior life of a young woman determined to navigate the treachery in a new world. Told from her perspective many years later, the story cooly describes a series of shattering events and the system that failed to protect her. Walbert, who brilliantly explored a century of women’s struggles for rights and recognition in her award-winning A Short History of Women, limns the all-too-common violations of vulnerability and aspiration in the lives of young women in this suspenseful short novel. From the publisher of the classic A Separate Peace, His Favorites is an urgent book by a ´´wickedly smart writer” (The New York Times Book Review) whose work is ´´fascinating, moving and significant” (The Washington Post). 1.

He´s the media´s darling, an inspiration to many, and the answer to everything from healthcare to taxes. He is Barack Obama - the silver-tongued senator with a phrase for everything and a promise for everyone. Sound too good to be true? That´s what David Freddoso, investigative reporter and National Review Online columnist, examines in The Case Against Barack Obama.In this shocking expose, Freddoso explores the reality behind the rhetoric, the plans behind the promises, and the faults the facade, revealing: Why Obama´s inexperience and extreme left-wing voting record are more dangerous than any threat we face today. Why the Rev. Wright debacle reveals Obama´s poor judgment of character and deceitful nature. Why it won´t be politics of change with President Obama - it will be liberal politics as usual. Freddoso exposes the real Barack Obama: a typical big-government politician, the number-one most liberal U.S. senator, and - if he were commander-in-chief - a serious threat to our national security. 1.

In quick chapter breakdowns and analyses, this summary explains how Orwell’s book was a cautionary tale against dictatorship, Communism, and the Soviet Union.
