The novelization of the movie.
"You all believe that losing one-hundred-plus pounds will solve everything, but it won't. Something far heavier is weighing on you, and until you deal with that, nothing in your lives will be right. " -Betsy Glass, PhD, at first weekly group counseling session for ten severely obese teens admitted into exclusive weight-loss surgery trial Patient #1: Female, age 16, 5'4", 288 lbs. Thrust into size-zero suburban hell by remarried liposuctioned mom. Hates new school and skinny boy-toy stepsister. Body size exceeded only by her big mouth. Patient #2: Male, age 16, 6'2", 335 lbs. All-star football player, but if he gets "girl surgery," as his dad calls it, he'll probably get benched. Has moobies-male boobies. Forget about losing his V-card-he's never even been kissed. Patient #3: Female, age 15, 5'6", 278 lbs. Morbidly obese and morbid, living alone with severely depressed mother who won't leave her bed. Best and only friend is another patient, whose dark secret threatens everything Patient #3 believes about life. Told in the voices of patients Marcie Mandlebaum, Bobby Konopka, and Annie "East" Itou, Teenage Waistland is a story of betrayal, intervention, a life-altering operation, and how a long-buried truth can prove far more devastating than the layers of fat that protect it.
A popular new image of Witches has arisen in recent years, due largely to movies like The Craft, Practical Magic, and Simply Irresistible and television shows such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and Charmed. Here, young sexy Witches use magic and Witchcraft to gain control over their lives and fight evil. Then there is the depiction in the Harry Potter books: Witchcraft is a gift that unenlightened Muggles (everyday people) lack. In both types of portrayals, being a Witch is akin to being a superhero. At the other end of the spectrum, wary adults assume that Witches engage in evil practices that are misguided at best and dangerous at worst. Yet, as Helen A. Berger and Douglas Ezzy show in this in-depth look into the lives of teenage Witches, the reality of their practices, beliefs, values, and motivations is very different from the sensational depictions we see in popular culture. Drawing on extensive research across three countries--the United States, England, and Australia--and interviews with young people from diverse backgrounds, what they find are highly spiritual and self-reflective young men and women attempting to make sense of a postmodern world via a religion that celebrates the earth and emphasizes self-development. The authors trace the development of Neo-Paganism (an umbrella term used to distinguish earth-based religions from the pagan religions of ancient cultures) from its start in England during the 1940s, through its growing popularity in the decades that followed, up through its contemporary presence on the Internet. Though dispersed and disorganized, Neo-Pagan communities, virtual and real, are shown to be an important part of religious identity particularly for those seeking affirmation during the difficult years between childhood and adulthood.
So How Does a Six-Armed Green-Skinned Guy from Arcturus Get a Date on a Saturday Night? Yo, dude! Aliens from Beyond the Stars have invaded our planet! They're enrolling their kids in our schools, shopping in our shopping malls, and hanging out in our fast food joints! High school is never going to be the same again. Six-armed green-skinned guys from Arcturus are gonna date your kid sister! Silicon-based lifeforms are gonna poke their school lunch and wonder what it's supposed to be! On second thought, maybe high school won't be so different after all. What Is This Thing? Teenagers from Outer Space is a roleplaying game set on an Earth where fun-loving space aliens go to our high schools and party with the Earth kids. In the game you play the part of a teenager-alien or human-and have adventures fighting mutant monstrosities, saving the world from ravening rabbits from the X dimension, and getting your homework in on time. You're not a gamer? No sweat, dude. Teenagers is a giggle. You'll have fun reading it, even if you never play. (Honest. Hey, trust us on this one, okay?) And if you decide to play, it'll be a snap. Unlike other roleplaying games, Teenagers doesn't have encyclopedia-long rules that you have to study like a textbook before you can play. You can learn to play this thing in minutes. Seconds, even. . . . Well, okay, maybe not seconds. And if you are a gamer-hey, butchering orcs is swell for a while, but isn't it time for a change of pace? Dragons are dangerous and dungeons are deadly, but there's nothing quite as awesome, quite as fearful, quite as horrifying as an order to report to...the principal's office!
