Homer’s Iliad, the classic tale of love and revenge, is shrewdly retold for teens in Troy High. Narrated by Cassie, a shy outsider at Troy High, the story follows the Trojans and Spartans as they declare war on the football field. After the beautiful Elena—who used to be the captain of the Spartan cheerleaders—transfers to Troy High and falls madly in love with Cassie’s brother Perry, the Spartans vow that the annual homecoming game will never be forgotten. Off the football field, an escalating prank war fuels tensions between the schools. The stakes are raised when Cassie is forced to choose between the boy she loves (a Spartan) and loyalty to her family and school. Troy High will seduce readers with its cast of mythic proportions.

Read never-before-published anecdotes, commentaries, and interviews from key insiders about the most exciting Presidential Election in our nation's history! Provides unique, riveting insider stories and analyses of the election that will capture readers' attention while helping them to understand why things happened as they did. Contributors include: George Terwilliger (Bush legal team); Ron Klain and Jeremy Bash (Gore legal team); Donnie Fowler (Gore campaign advisor); Tom Fiedler (Editor, Miami Herald); Larry J. Sabato and Joshua Scott (University of Virginia); Chuck Babbington (Washington Post); Diana Owens (Georgetown University); Tim Burger (NY Daily News); Jake Tapper (Salon.com/CNN); and Rhodes Cook (The Rhodes Cook Letter). Offers never-before-published information about Election 2000! Edited by Larry Sabato, this collection of first-hand stories and analyses offers stunning insights into "the election of the century" from the people who were there. George Terwilliger from the Bush legal team and Ron Klain and Jeremy Bash from the Gore legal team provide insider accounts of the Florida ballot recount battle. Tim Burger of the NY Daily News writes a previously unpublished story about the Bush DUI, Diana Owen from Georgetown University provides unique coverage of the media consortium recount, and Tom Fiedler, editor of the Miami Herald -which was at the "center of the storm"- writes the introductory chapter. Overtime stands far out from the crowd of books on Election 2000 because it contains original, never-before-seen material and because it offers a wide spectrum of insider views, providing a balance of journalistic, academic, and campaigner accounts. Because it combines political journalism with solid political science research, it is both highly readable and enlightening. And because Overtime was written and published after the initial rush of post-election books, it includes data and stories that have been revealed since the first wave hit the bookstands. Overtime is not only an entertaining read with a unique insider's view, but will help readers truly make sense of this complex and historic election. It walks readers through the story of the election, offers a context for understanding why things happened as they did, and leaves them with a more meaningful appreciation of the powerful effects this election had, and will continue to have, on our political system.
