There is nothing lonelier than a cat who has been loved, at least for a while, and then abandoned on the side of the road. A calico cat, about to have kittens, hears the lonely howl of a chained-up hound deep in the backwaters of the bayou. She dares to find him in the forest, and the hound dares to befriend this cat, this feline, this creature he is supposed to hate. They are an unlikely pair, about to become an unlikely family. Ranger urges the cat to hide underneath the porch, to raise her kittens there because Gar-Face, the man living inside the house, will surely use them as alligator bait should he find them. But they are safe in the Underneath...as long as they stay in the Underneath. Kittens, however, are notoriously curious creatures. And one kitten’s one moment of curiosity sets off a chain of events that is astonishing, remarkable, and enormous in its meaning. For everyone who loves Sounder, Shiloh, and The Yearling, for everyone who loves the haunting beauty of writers such as Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, Flannery O’Connor, and Carson McCullers, Kathi Appelt spins a harrowing yet keenly sweet tale about the power of love—and its opposite, hate—the fragility of happiness and the importance of making good on your promises.

In this erudite and gracefully written ethnography, Mariane Ferme explores the links between a violent historical and political legacy, and the production of secrecy in everyday material culture. The focus is on Mende-speaking southeastern Sierra Leone and the surrounding region. Since 1990, this area has been ravaged by a civil war that produced population displacements and regional instability. The Underneath of Things documents the rural impact of the progressive collapse of the Sierra Leonean state in the past several decades, and seeks to understand how an even earlier history is reinscribed in the present.

Frankie Callahan is a man walking the thin line between sanity and insanity. From the time his father died when he was a child and his mother had to move him and his brother Pete to the notorious south end of Boston, life had become little more than a seemingly endless series of disappointments and heartaches. At age twenty Pete was killed in a gang shooting; years later Frankie lost his mom to cancer; and then the final insult; finding out purely by accident that Naomi, his wife of ten years had not only been poisoning him for the money his mother left him but was also carrying on an adulterous affair with his stepfather as part of an insurance scam which was cut short by Frankie’s moms untimely and unexpected passing from cancer. Frankie had become the new target. But after years of excusing her psychologically abusive behavior towards him due to his kind nature and the fact that he for some reason loved her deeply he reached his breaking point and decided that Naomi and his beloved stepfather would have to pay the ultimate price and die for their sins. After careful planning and research Frankie decides to transform himself into the most unlikely of killers in this game of ‘kill me if you can’ only to find himself hopelessly lost in the murky psychological abyss that exists in the desolate badlands between fantasy and reality...he had ventured too far; INTO THE UNDERNEATH!

A new kind of style book with the inspiring and empowering message that "true style is self-acceptance," profiling stylish influencers and celebrities who defy the cookie-cutter looks of today's fashion magazines. The mother-daughter team behind the enormously popular websites StyleLikeU and What's Underneath profile trendsetting artists and creatives of all ages, body types, races, and genders to embrace how self-expression and self-acceptance are the most important means of achieving personal style. Featuring people with original and creative style such as actress Lea DeLaria, who embraces her butch style with whimsy and hum∨ model and Miley Cyrus-muse Melanie Gaydos, who lives with a genetic disorder and who sees beauty as a state of being that she has achieved; designer Betsey Johnson, who continues to exert creative genius into her 70s; or Tallulah Willis, who has learned to keep a positive self-image in today's negative tabloid culture. A wealth of photographs reflects each person's unique look, while interviews reveal how their journey affects and informs their style. Throughout the book, the authors include inspiring manifestos such as: "Disentangle Style from Fashion"; "Dress to Express Your Inner Spirit"; "Beauty Is a State of Mind"; and "Turn Your Struggles Into Strengths". By illustrating that personal style emanates from one's comfort with oneself, this volume powerfully demonstrates that true style is what's underneath.

Earth has been around for roughly 4.6 billion years. Humans have been around for roughly 2 MILLION years. Since humans have been here you would think we would have learned more about our oceans, rivers and lakes but truth to the matter is we know squat. We barely know how water was formed here. Scientists have an array of theories but which theory is correct. Sort of like why did the Dinosaurs disappear? We can guess but we will probably never know the truth.

Underneath Everything is a seductive, gorgeously written debut about two girls bound by an obsessive and toxic friendship, perfect for fans of Lauren Oliver and Courtney Summers. Mattie shouldn't be at the bonfire. She should be finding new maps for her collection, hanging out with Kris, and steering clear of almost everyone else, especially Jolene. After all, Mattie and Kris dropped off the social scene the summer after sophomore year for a reason. But now Mattie is a senior, and she's sick of missing things. So here she is. And there's Jolene: Beautiful. Captivating. Just like the stories she wove. Mattie would know—she used to star in them. She and Jolene were best friends. Mattie has the scar on her palm to prove it, and Jolene has everything else, including Hudson. But when Mattie runs into Hudson and gets a glimpse of what could have been, she decides to take it all back: the boyfriend, the friends, the life she was supposed to live. Problem is, Mattie can't figure out where Jolene's life ends and hers begins. Because there's something Mattie hasn't told anyone: She walked away from Jolene over a year ago, but she never really left.

"The narrator, Celeste, watches the world from her wheelchair and through her binoculars from a vent in her kitchen. She reports things she sees, but her interpretation of these events are sometimes accurate and sometimes wildly imagined. As she does ventures out, her observations become more valid, but her mistakes prove tragic. In addition to Celeste, there are her neighbors, an ex-biker dad who is struggling to control his 15-year old, adopted, rebellious, dangerous, tattoo-addicted daughter, Persephone. He fails, in part because the biological mother. Celeste's neighbor, fails to come forward and in part because Celeste manipulates events thinking they will be to her advantage. Revelations produce grief and guilt, but also awareness and hope."--

This book focuses on the structural determination of crystalline solids with extensive disorder. Well-established methods exist for characterizing the structure of fully crystalline solids or fully disordered materials such as liquids and glasses, but there is a dearth of techniques for the cases in-between, crystalline solids with internal atomic and nanometer scale disorder. Egami and Billinge discuss how to fill the gap using modern tools of structural characterization. This problem is encountered in the structural characterization of a surprisingly wide range of complex materials of interest to modern technology and is becoming increasingly important. Takeshi Egami received the 2003 Eugene Bertram Warren Diffraction Physics Award for the work described in the book. The authors received 2010 J. D. Hanawalt Award from the International Union of Crystallography largely based on the success of this book. Introduces a unique method to study the atomic structure of nanomaterials Lays out the basic theory and methods of this important emerging technique The first edition is considered the seminal text on the subject

On paper, things looked good for Mark Rice-Oxley: wife, children, fulfilling job. But then, at his 40th birthday party, his whole world crumbled as he succumbed to depression... How many men do you know who have been through periods when their lives haven't seemed right? How badly askew were things for them? Many men suffer from depression yet it is still a subject that is taboo. Men often don't visit the doctor, or they don't want to face up to feelings of weakness and vulnerability. By telling his story, Mark Rice-Oxley hopes it will enable others to tell theirs. In this intensely moving memoir he retraces the months of his utmost despair, revisiting a landscape from which at times he felt he would never escape. Written with lyricism and poignancy, Mark captures the visceral nature of this most debilitating of illnesses with a frightening clarity, while at the same time offering a sympathetic and dispassionate view of what is happening, and perhaps why. This is not a self-help book but a memoir that is brimful of experience, understanding and hope for all those who read it. It is above all honest, touching and surprisingly optimistic.
