Flat-Out Matt - Jessica Park Summary

*Please note: This is not a full retelling of Flat-Out Love, but rather a companion piece with select FOL chapters, and it is meant for readers who know the story very well.*Matt is a junior at MIT. He's geeky, he's witty, he's brilliant.And he's also very, very stupid.When beautiful, cool, insightful Julie moves in with Matt's family, why (oh why!) does he pretend to be his absent brother Finn for her alleged benefit?It seems harmless enough until her short-term stay becomes permanent. And until it snowballs into heart-squeezing insanity. And until he falls in love with Julie, and Julie falls in love with Finn.But … Matt is the right one for her. If only he can make Julie see it. Without telling her the truth, without shattering them all. Particularly his fragile sister, Celeste, who may need Julie the most.You saw Matt through Julie's eyes in FLAT-OUT LOVE. Now go deeper into Matt's world in this FLAT-OUT MATT novella. Live his side of the story, break when his heart breaks, and fall for the unlikely hero all over again.Take an emotional skydive for two prequel chapters and seven FLAT-OUT LOVE chapters retold from his perspective, and then land with a brand-new steamy finale chapter from Julie.Author's Note: Two chapters, The Sleepover and Keep Going, contain more mature content than Flat-Out Love (Keep Going, in particular), and were written based on reader demand. They wouldn't have fit in well with the original Flat-Out Love, but given that this is a fan-driven companion piece, I think they work. While the content here is upped at bit, the scenes are tastefully done. (So, you know sorry to those who wanted lewd and graphic.)Facebook: AuthorJessicaPark

High school freshman Dani McKinley's world is rocked when she finds out that she is the daughter of B-list actor and notorious womanizer Mark Ocean. Mark is all too eager to get his acting career back on track, so he follows his agent's advice about cleaning up his image and invites his "new" daughter to spend the summer with him. Armed with credit cards, club memberships, and a new wardrobe, Dani spends the summer navigating the foreign culture of Hollywood. Her new friends school Dani in everything from attaching hair extensions to managing the paparazzi. She meets Jason, a gorgeous young personal trainer who is easy on the eyes and wildly flirtatious . . . But is this smug hottie the one for Dani? Or will she ignore her friends' eye rolling and go for Nate, the goofy but sweet surfer? Even tougher than all the new social pressures, is the challenge of trying to deal with her father. What Mark Ocean has in wealth, he sorely lacks in parenting skills. The fatherly interest Mark feigns has everything to do with charming the public and virtually nothing to do with connecting with his daughter. Dani desperately tries to teach her father that being a dad is not just about supplying her with Prada bags and trips to movie premieres, and the result of the clueless actor's attempts at fatherhood is both funny and heart-wrenching. Follow Dani and Mark while they struggle to figure out what it means to be father and daughter, and as they navigate their own complicated love lives.

Father Greg and the Homeboys

Father Greg and the Homeboys - Celeste Fremon Summary

Of all the gang-riddled urban corners in America, the Pico-Aliso neighborhood of East Los Angeles is among the most intense. Eight separate gangs - seven of them Latino - fight for turf here every night in desperate confrontation. The constant maelstrom of high drama and tragedy has bred a dramatic and desperate cast of characters. These are the homeboys - young men between the ages of thirteen and twenty-two, with names like Wicked, Shotgun, and Ghost - who have turned to the streets for self-definition. And Father Greg Boyle is often the one safe anchor in the constantly shifting turbulence of their lives. In a world with too few genuine heroes, Greg Boyle is the real thing. A complicated and charismatic man, Father Greg (or "G-Dog," as the kids call him) offers hope to these young men and women on whom the rest of the world has given up. Father Greg is the one to whom the mothers in the neighborhood turn to pull their sons back from the brink of despair - or to bury their sons when hope and help did not come soon enough. Celeste Fremon takes the reader into the previously unexplored realms of contemporary Mexican-American street gangs. Fremon opens the door to this world with detailed portraits of the East L.A. homeboys' brutality and of their dreams, their anguish, and their humanity - all against the backdrop of the priest's relentless battle to stop the killing. Finally, after giving years to what he believes is his true calling, by decree of the Catholic hierarchy, Father Greg is sent away from the community and the homeboys who have come to love and depend upon him. It is then that we see the power of the mothers of the barrio as they go to war to bring their priest back "home."

In the face of life-threatening news, how does our view of life change—and what do we do it transform it? Remaking a Life uses the HIV/AIDS epidemic as a lens to understand how women generate radical improvements in their social well being in the face of social stigma and economic disadvantage.

With an eye towards improving the lives of women, Remaking a Life provides techniques to encourage private, nonprofit, and government agencies to successfully collaborate, and shares policy ideas with the hope of alleviating the injuries of inequality faced by those living with HIV/AIDS everyday.
