The book is broken into three rough sections. The first four chapters consider the relationship of narrative to other kinds of discourse. For instance, he explores how a text-type such as description fits into the narrative framework. The second section of the book addresses narrative formulations internal to either cinema or novels. I found this personally the most useful section.

An overview of aviation history, written from the perspective of 10,000 feet, is your first choice.

Good Aviation Fiction Books? Locked. The criminal ineptitude makes you furious"-Bruce Springsteen, after seeing firsthand the damage from Hurricane Katrina. If any of you like non-fiction as well, I recommend reading "Odyssey of Terror". It is about the hijacking of a Southern Airways DC-9 from Birmingham to Cuba back in the 70's. It's been quite a few years since I read this book but I know the author was the captain of that flight and his last name is Haas.

A strange friendship develops between Bob Royle, the new student at Burgess High School, and Carl Riemer, a very weird senior who lies to everyone, but Bob

BeatHoWin
Bob Royle is 15, a sophomore, and a new student at Burgess High. His family have moved about a fair bit in his life, so this situation is not new to him. His plan is to not look stupid, be one of the crowd and learn how things work. Bob is definitely not a team joining, stand out in the crowd kind of guy. Then Bob sees Carl, a geeky looking senior, frantically signaling to him. Carl thinks that Bob is an interesting, going places winner. According to Carl Bob can't loose if he runs as class president. Slowly, reluctantly, Bob finds himself living up to his new friend's expectations.

This is a story about believing in yourself and not under-rating your chances. It is about trying things even when the job seems large and difficult. It also asks the questions what is normality and what is greatness? Also, does your background, particularly disadvantages, limit what you can be?

Another important theme is what is madness? Is there a thin line between intelligence and craziness, or this just a misunderstanding of the low intelligence crowd?

Finally, is what we hope for always what we should get? Should we go for everything we desire with our full strength or should we really think about our desires, reasoning out what is best, rather than trusting our impulses?

As you can see there is a lot in this book, but I do not mean to imply that it is overly philosophic or intellectual. All the questions arise out of a very interesting story that is quite original. Clements writes in a way that makes you like both Bob and Carl, and care about their lives. Of course life does not run smooth and neither do the events in this book.

Of course many, many books are written for teens, but this one stands out as being at the front of the pack. It was first published in 1984 and so it is getting quite old now, but the story is about 'relationships' and 'life goal', which are both timeless themes. The book, indeed, is as relevant today as the day it was written and there are absolutely no cultural references, such as pop songs, to date it. I am so impressed by this book that it gets one of my rare five stars.
