Herbie is about to enter his senior year of high school and his days are packed with football, cross-country, and the pursuit of a potential girlfriend. Herbie is nothing short of an exceptional teenager, but he is also a prime conduit for ghostly energy. And Herbie's brother, who died ten years ago, is desperately trying to make contact. His brother Frank is a soul trapped without a body, and Herbie may be Frank's only way to get free. Frank has been trying to talk to Herbie for years-watching, waiting, reaching out to Herbie in his dreams. Finally, he is moving closer to meaningful contact. At long last, Herbie is becoming aware of his brother's presence.
Sounding Like a No-No traces a rebellious spirit in post–civil rights black music by focusing on a range of offbeat, eccentric, queer, or slippery performances by leading musicians influenced by the cultural changes brought about by the civil rights, black nationalist, feminist, and LGBTQ movements, who through reinvention created a repertoire of performances that have left a lasting mark on popular music. The book's innovative readings of performers including Michael Jackson, Grace Jones, Stevie Wonder, Eartha Kitt, and Meshell Ndegeocello demonstrate how embodied sound and performance became a means for creativity, transgression, and social critique, a way to reclaim imaginative and corporeal freedom from the social death of slavery and its legacy of racism, to engender new sexualities and desires, to escape the sometimes constrictive codes of respectability and uplift from within the black community, and to make space for new futures for their listeners. The book's perspective on music as a form of black corporeality and identity, creativity, and political engagement will appeal to those in African American studies, popular music studies, queer theory, and black performance studies; general readers will welcome its engaging, accessible, and sometimes playful writing style, including elements of memoir.

Note to Reader: This is a Summary & Analysis of Girl on the Train, by Paula Hawkins. You are encouraged to buy the full version. The main character, the girl on the train is Rachel, a lonely, alcoholic woman who rides the train to London every morning, keeping up the pretense that she still has a job. From the train she can see the house she had shared with her husband, Tom. He lives there now with his new wife and their daughter. It’s too painful for Rachel to look at her former home, so she looks four doors down to the home of an apparently happy couple. She has named them Jess and Jason, and has invented stories about their lives and feels as though she has a relationship with them. One morning she sees Jess kissing another man and the next day Jess has been reported missing. Rachel is certain she has vital information about the case, but the police have labeled her as an unreliable witness. Throughout the book the readers realize that Rachel’s blackouts are hiding dark truths about the night the woman Rachel calls Jess went missing. Get your copy today
