Legend of the Highland Dragon - Isabel Cooper

Interesting. A historical PNR with dragons.


The h inadvertently finds out what the H is by virtue of inviting herself over to visit with the housekeeper. She's working class...actually, that might be a stretch seeing as how some of her siblings are maids, etc. So there is class disparity between her and the H - who is titled. That said, I get the feeling that where dragons are concerned, it's less who's appropriate and more who will adapt.


She has attitude - he calls her Cerberus more often than her name. I thought that a bit odd considering said class disparity. Also thought it odd that the H would back off. Then again, perhaps the attraction was behind that.


Eventually the bad guy figured out how to separate them and grabbed her. The H went after him with a good deal of interest, showing him for sure what he was but he didn't come out of that confrontation alive.


I think...I may pursue this one further.

Back of the Bus
Back of the Bus - Aaron Reynolds,Floyd Cooper

Back of the Bus, written by Aaron Reynolds, is a fantastic read! The story is about a young boy and his mother riding home on the same bus that Rosa Parks was on. He was playing with his marble when it fell on the ground and rolled directly to were Rosa Parks was sitting, in the front of the bus. He knew that she was not allowed to sit in the front but he had no idea what was about the life changing event that was about to take place. I can use this book in my classroom when teaching about Rosa Parks and how she contributed to the Civil Rights Movement because it gives the students a child's perspective on what happened to Rosa Parks.

Berührender Jugendthirller
Der Tag, an dem Cooper starb - Edith Beleites,Rebecca St. James

Cooper hat sich umgebracht! Seine Freundin Libby kann es nicht fassen, weil er augenscheinlich glücklich war. Nach dem ersten Schock stellt sie Fragen, die Coopers Freunden und seiner Familie unangenehm sind.

"Der Tag, an dem Cooper starb" ist ein Jugendthriller, der nicht nur Spannung verspricht, sondern zugleich gefühlvoll und wunderschön zu lesen ist.

Gleich zu Beginn erlebt man Coopers letzte Sekunden mit und  erfährt seine Gedanken. Allerdings weiß man nicht, was geschehen ist. Dieser Einstieg hat sofort die unheilvolle Stimmung von den Klippen am Meer direkt in mein Wohnzimmer katapultiert. 

Danach wird man gemeinsam mit Libby mit Coopers Selbstmord konfrontiert. In diesem Augenblick habe ich mit Libby gefühlt, schon fast geweint, und wir standen benommen vor der Tatsache, dass sie niemals wieder mit ihm sprechen wird

Libby ist Coopers Freundin. Sie ist ein nettes Mädchen, das sich voll auf ihr Studium konzentriert. Gemeinsam mit ihren Freunden genießt sie die Abende am Strand, überlegt sich Geburtstagsüberraschungen und -geschenke und schaut zuversichtlich ihrer Zukunft entgegen.

Doch dann tritt Cooper in ihr Leben, von dem sie bisher dachte, dass er ein eingebildeter Schnösel sei. Immerhin zählte er schon zu Schulzeiten zu den angesagten Kids und hat sich auf den wilden Partys seines besten Freunds Sebastian einen berüchtigten Namen gemacht.

Berüchtigter als seine Freundin Claire kann er jedoch nicht sein. Denn Claire ist das It-Girl im Partymodus schlechthin. Statt wie Libby ihre Nase in Bücher zu vergraben, zieht sie sich damit eine Line nach der anderen rein, schwebt ständig im Wodka-Himmel und hat sich durch ihre sexuelle Unbeständigkeit um ihre große Liebe Cooper gebracht.

Exquisite Partys sind Sebastians Markenzeichen. Er ist Coopers bester Freund und hat mehr Geld, als man ausgeben kann. Andrerseits ist es mit dem familiären Rückhalt in seiner Familie nicht weit her, und er sieht in Cooper, mehr als einen Freund. 

Die Figuren sind allesamt beeindruckend grauschattiert. Trotz meiner simplen Beschreibung, die eher auf Klischees schließen lässt, hat Rebecca James ein facettenreiches Bild von ihren Figuren gemalt, die man mit jeder Seite besser kennenlernt. Es gefällt mir, wie die Autorin die Motivation ihrer Charaktere langsam einfließen lässt. Sie erklärt, warum Claire eine drogenvernichtende Bitch geworden ist, wie es dazu kommt, dass Sebastian seinem Freund Cooper die neue Liebe nicht gönnt, und den Grund, warum Coopers Selbstmord unerklärlich ist.

Dreh- und Angelpunkt der Figuren und der Handlung ist Libby, die Coopers Selbstmord nicht hinnehmen kann. Sie haben herrlich romantische Stunden verbracht, sie hatten Pläne und depressiv hat ihr Freund beim besten Willen nicht gewirkt. Aber warum ist Cooper tot?

Libbys Stellung wird vor allem durch die Perspektive gestärkt. Insgesamt wird die Handlung von Cooper, Sebastian, Claire und Libby erzählt, dennoch erfährt man Libbys Sicht direkt aus der Ich-Erzählung. Zudem spielt Rebecca James mit den Zeitsträngen, indem sie die Vergangenheit mit ‚Damals‘ zum Leben erweckt und unter ‚Jetzt‘ in der Gegenwart auftaucht. Dieses Perspektivenspiel hat Handlung und Figuren unheimliches Leben und fesselnde Spannung eingehaucht. 

Ich war von der ersten Seite an berührt, weil mich die Trauer um Cooper regelrecht erschlagen hat. Das Leid, die Fassungslosigkeit und der Schock haben sich schwer zwischen die Zeilen gelegt und mich sofort eingefangen. 

Zum Glück ist nicht die ganze Handlung nur von Trauer übersät, weil man unter anderen erfährt, wie aus Libby und Cooper ein Liebespaar geworden ist. Man erlebt glückliche Momente mit ihnen, die beim Lesen vom nahenden Selbstmord überschattet sind.

Für mich ist „Der Tag, an dem Cooper starb“ ein exzellent gelungener Jugend-Thriller, der mit Atmosphäre, zugänglichen Figuren und einer mitreißenden Handlung punktet. Überwältigende Emotionen treffen auf packende Thrillerelemente, die das Buch zum Pageturner machen.
