Bridge, Tab et Emily entrent en cinquième. Et voilà que tout doucement, presque sans faire de bruit, leur vie change et leur amitié aussi. Entre petits riens et grands bouleversements, six mois de la vie de ces jeunes New-Yorkaises.
Bridge, Tab et Emily entrent en cinquième. Le collège, c'est donc leur univers... impitoyable ? Parfois. L'entrée en cinquième à New York, ça signifie avoir un casier pour la première fois (Bridge est si contente qu'elle embrasse le sien tous les matins !), et s'inscrire dans un club. Pour la première fois aussi, les chemins des trois amies divergent : Bridge entre dans le très cool club technique - elle s'occupera de tous les spectacles du collège ; Emily, elle, se lance dans le foot ; Tab, enfin, décide de s'investir dans la défense des droits de l'homme et le féminisme.
L'entrée en cinquième, ça signifie également s'intéresser aux garçons. Emily, d'ailleurs, joue un jeu dangereux avec un garçon de quatrième, ce qui inquiète beaucoup ses copines. Bridge, elle, se rapproche de Sherm, qu'elle considère plutôt comme son meilleur copain. Mais est-ce possible d'avoir un ami garçon ? Chacune commence à tracer sa route, selon ses goûts, son énergie intime et ses fragilités, sur le sentier tortueux de l'adolescence... sans se douter que, tout près, une jeune fille un peu plus grande est en souffrance, victime de la cruauté de ses camarades de lycée.
After her parents' divorce, Bea's life became different in many ways. But she can always look back at the list she keeps in her green notebook to remember the things that will stay the same. The first and most important: Mom and Dad will always love Bea, and each other.
Miranda's life is starting to unravel. Her best friend, Sal, gets punched by a kid on the street for what seems like no reason, and he shuts Miranda out of his life. The key that Miranda's mum keeps hidden for emergencies is stolen.
Winner of the 2010 John Newbery Medal
Four mysterious letters change Miranda’s world forever.
By sixth grade, Miranda and her best friend, Sal, know how to navigate their New York City neighborhood. They know where it’s safe to go, like the local grocery store, and they know whom to avoid, like the crazy guy on the corner.
But things start to unravel. Sal gets punched by a new kid for what seems like no reason, and he shuts Miranda out of his life. The apartment key that Miranda’s mom keeps hidden for emergencies is stolen. And then Miranda finds a mysterious note scrawled on a tiny slip of paper:
I am coming to save your friend’s life, and my own.
I must ask two favors. First, you must write me a letter.
The notes keep coming, and Miranda slowly realizes that whoever is leaving them knows all about her, including things that have not even happened yet. Each message brings her closer to believing that only she can prevent a tragic death. Until the final note makes her think she’s too late.

Peter can't wait to join his parents on an expedition to the ice caps of Greenland to study global warming. But while he's there, he begins to suspect there might be another reason for this trip other than scientific research. And in another world, there is Thea, who lives with her family under the ice, and is desperate to see what's above it.
Bridge has always been a bit of an oddball, but since she recovered from a serious accident, she's found fitting in with her friends increasingly hard. Tab and Em are getting cooler and better and they don't get why she insists on wearing novelty cat ears every day. Bridge just thinks they look good. It's getting harder to keep their promise of no fights, especially when they start keeping secrets from each other.
Sherm wants to get to know Bridge better. But he's hiding the anger he feels at his grandfather for walking out.
And then there is another girl, who is struggling with an altogether more serious set of friendship troubles...
Told from interlinked points of view, this is a bittersweet story about the trials of friendship and growing up.
When Georges moves into a new apartment block he meets Safer, a twelve-year-old self-appointed spy. Soon Georges has become his spy recruit. His first assignment? To track the mysterious Mr X, who lives in the flat upstairs. But as Safer becomes more demanding, Georges starts to wonder: what is a game and what is a lie?

This book is a contribution to our understanding of the worrying situation of small-scale fisheries (SSF) which face marginalisation in most coastal countries. The authors explain why SSF are so pressured; how there has been a powerful backlash against this marginalisation during the last 30 years; what are the main ideational currents supporting this backlash; and what is the enduring value of SSF that justifies that support. The authors discuss the major contemporary interpretations of SSF; the challenges facing SSF globally and in England; and SSF's coping strategies in response to those challenges through the framework of resilience theory. In an innovative analysis, the authors show how there are three kinds of resilience: passive resilience (where fishers are resigned to their adverse fate), adaptive resilience (where fishers make the best use of the opportunities that are available to them), and transformative resilience (where fishers attempt to change the system that faces them). The authors draw on an extensive range of interview data to provide rich insights into the world of SSF, and they discuss a variety of proposals for improving their conditions. The book will appeal to the growing academic and public community that is following with increasing concern the debate about the future of SFF, and to the environmental movement which has committed itself to support SSF as a greener form of fishing than the large-scale industrial sector.
