Die #1 der „New York Times“-Bestsellerliste: Dick UND schön? Unsicher UND mutig? Dumplin‘ ist all das und noch viel mehr. Willowdean – „16, Dolly-Parton-Verehrerin und die Dicke vom Dienst“ – wird von ihrer Mutter immer nur Dumplin' genannt. Bisher hat sie sich in ihrem Körper eigentlich immer wohl gefühlt. Sie ist eben dick – na und? Mit ihrer besten Freundin Ellen an ihrer Seite ist das sowieso total egal. Doch dann lernt sie den sportlichen und unfassbar attraktiven Bo kennen. Kein Wunder, dass sie sich hoffnungslos in ihn verknallt – dass er sie allerdings aus heiterem Himmel küsst, verunsichert sie völlig. Plötzlich macht es ihr doch etwas aus, nicht schlank zu sein. Um ihre Selbstzweifel in den Griff zu bekommen, beschließt Will, sich der furchteinflößendsten Herausforderung in ganz Clover City zu stellen: Sie will am „Miss Teen Blue Bonnet“-Schönheitswettbewerb teilnehmen und allen – vor allem sich selbst – beweisen, dass die Kleidergröße für das ganz große Glück überhaupt keine Rolle spielt. „Badeanzüge haben so etwas an sich, das einen denken lässt, man müsste sich erst das Recht verdienen, sie zu tragen. Aber eigentlich ist doch die entscheidende Frage: Hast du einen Körper? Dann zieh ihm einen Badeanzug an.“

»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.

The third edition of Cynthia Young's Trigonometry brings together all the elements that have allowed instructors and learners to successfully "bridge the gap" between classroom instruction and independent homework by overcoming common learning barriers and building confidence in students' ability to do mathematics. Written in a clear voice that speaks to students and mirrors how instructors communicate in lecture, Young's hallmark pedagogy enables students to become independent, successful learners. Varied exercise types and modeling projects keep the learning fresh and motivating. Young continues her tradition of fostering a love for succeeding in mathematics by introducing inquiry-based learning projects in this edition, providing learners an opportunity to master the material with more freedom while reinforcing mathematical skills and intuition. The seamless integration of Cynthia Young's Trigonometry 3rd edition with WileyPLUS, a research-based, online environment for effective teaching and learning, continues Young's vision of building student confidence in mathematics because it takes the guesswork out of studying by providing them with a clear roadmap: what to do, how to do it, and whether they did it right. WileyPLUS sold separately from text.
