    "Aza nunca tuvo intención de investigar el misterio del multimillonario fugitivo Russell Pickett. Pero hay una recompensa de cien mil dólares en juego, y su mejor y más atrevida amiga, Daisy, no está dispuesta a dejarla escapar. Juntas, Aza y Daisy recorrerán la corta distancia y las enormes diferencias que les separan del hijo de Russell Pickett, Davis. Aza lo está intentando. Trata de ser una buena hija, una buena amiga, una buena estudiante y, tal vez, incluso una buena detective, mientras vive en la espiral cada vez más oscura de sus propios pensamientos, una y mil veces hasta siempre. En este esperado regreso, John Green, el aclamado y premiado autor de Bajo la misma estrella, Ciudades de papel o El teorema Katherine, nos cuenta, con una claridad desgarradora e inquebrantable, la historia de Aza en esta brillante novela sobre el amor, la resiliencia y el poder de la amistad para toda la vida."--Amazon.com.

    Tough guise 2 : violence, manhood & American culture

    In this highly anticipated update of the influential and widely acclaimed Tough Guise, pioneering anti-violence educator and cultural theorist Jackson Katz argues that the ongoing epidemic of men's violence in America is rooted in our inability as a society to move beyond outmoded ideals of manhood. In a sweeping analysis that cuts across racial, ethnic, and class lines, Katz examines mass shootings, day-to-day gun violence, violence against women, bullying, gay-bashing, and American militarism against the backdrop of a culture that has normalized violent and regressive forms of masculinity in the face of challenges to traditional male power and authority. Along the way, the film provides a stunning look at the violent, sexist, and homophobic messages boys and young men routinely receive from virtually every corner of the culture, from television, movies, video games, and advertising to pornography, the sports culture, and US political culture. Tough Guise 2 stands to empower a new generation of young men - and women - to challenge the myth that being a real man means putting up a false front and engaging in violent and self-destructive behavior.

    Tough guise violence, media, and the crisis in masculinity

    Looks systematically at the relationship between the images of popular culture and the social construction of masculine identities in the U.S. at the end of the 20th century. Jackson Katz argues that there is a crisis in masculinity and that some of the guises offered to men as a solution (e.g., rugged individualism, violence) come loaded with attendant dangers to women, as well as other men.
