Ten Below Zero
Author: Whitney Barbetti
"In here," he said, pushing on the skin above my heart, "you're ten below zero. And you're closer to death than I am." My name is Parker. My body is marked with scars from an attack I don't remember. I don't want to remember. I choose to live my life by observation, not through experience. While people are laughing and kissing and connecting, I'm in the corner. Watching them live. I'm indifferent to everything, everyone. The only emotion I feel with any kind of depth is annoyance, and I feel it often. A text message sent to the wrong number proves to be my undoing. His name is Everett, but I call him rude. He's pushy, he's arrogant, he crowds my personal space, and worst of all: he makes me feel. He chooses to wear all black, all the time, as if he's waiting to attend a funeral. Probably because he is. Everett is dying. And he's spending his final days living, truly living. In doing so, he's forcing me to feel, to heal. To come face to face with the demons I suppressed in my memory. He hurts me, he fulfills me, he completes me. And still, he's dying.

Come Rovinare Un Figlio. Da' sempre al bambino ciò che vuole e pretenderà d'essere mantenuto. Fa che non si abbassi mai a dir: "Grazie", perché impari che tutto è dovuto. Metti a posto il suo disordine: si guarderà da responsabilità. Soddisfa pur le sue golosità, così saprà disprezzare la sobrietà. Dagli pur vinta la prima bravata e riterrà diritto l'arroganza. Su, ridi delle sue parolacce così crederà d'esser spiritoso. Fa che scimmiotti il diritto e lo spavaldo e vanterà l'onorata società. Che l'educatore non lo riprenda perché tuo figlio è intoccabile. Non additargli Dio per Signore e credere perciò non grave; che è buono quel che vuole. Tienilo ben lontano dalla Fede perché non rischi d'esser felice"!

Four friends. Twenty years. One unexpected journey. Inseparable throughout college, Eva, Benedict, Sylvie, and Lucien graduate in 1997, into an exhilarating world on the brink of a new millennium. Hopelessly in love with playboy Lucien and eager to shrug off the socialist politics of her upbringing, Eva breaks away to work for a big bank. Benedict, a budding scientist who's pined for Eva for years, stays on to complete his PhD in physics, devoting his life to chasing particles as elusive as the object of his affection. Siblings Sylvie and Lucien, never much inclined toward mortgages or monogamy, pursue more bohemian existences-she as an aspiring artist and he as a club promoter and professional partyer. But as their twenties give way to their thirties, the group struggles to navigate their thwarted dreams. Scattered across Europe and no longer convinced they are truly the masters of their fates, the once close-knit friends find themselves filled with longing for their youth- and for one another. Broken hearts and broken careers draw the foursome together again, but in ways they never could have imagined. A dazzling depiction of the highs and lows of adulthood, Invincible Summer is a story about finding the courage to carry on in the wake of disappointment, and a powerful testament to love and friendship as the constants in an ever-changing world.
