Susanna Kaysen è una ragazza di buona famiglia che vive in una piccola cittadina americana. Dopo aver conseguito il diploma decide di non frequentare nessuna università per dedicarsi completamente alla sua grande passione, la scrittura. Dietro alla mitezza d'animo si nasconde però un disagio psichico talmente profondo che conduce la ragazza al suicidio. Salvata appena in tempo e curata da un medico di famiglia, Susanna viene ben presto condotta in un ospedale psichiatrico. L'impatto è traumatico: le medicine la debilitano, il personale è ostile, le altre ragazze nascondono drammi terribili che la sconvolgono. Secondo i medici, Susanna soffre della sindrome da personalità borderline, un disturbo che si ripercuote nelle relazioni interpersonali e che la spinge verso l'autodistruzione. Rifiutate le cure, la ragazza riesce a fuggire dall'ospedale con Lisa, la ribelle del gruppo, e a rifugiarsi da Daisy, un "ospite" da poco uscita dalla casa di cura Qui, un evento funesto cambia radicalmente la situazione: Daisy si toglie la vita dopo essersi accorta che tutti conoscono la natura incestuosa del suo rapporto con il padre; Susanna, scoperto il corpo esanime della coetanea, ne rimane talmente traumatizzata che decide consapevolmente di tornare in ospedale e provare a guarire. Il suo esempio darà la forza anche alle amiche per tentare un difficile ma possibile risanamento psichico

Election by Alexander Payne( visu )
2 editions published in 2000 in Italian and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Trama: Alla High Carver School di Omaha (Nebraska) è tempo di elezioni: Tracy Flick, l'allieva più brillante dell'istituto, sembra la sola candidata realmente motivata a ricoprire la carica di presidente del consiglio studentesco. Tuttavia, Jim McAllister, docente di educazione civica ritenuto da tutti un insegnante modello, considera Tracy un' arrivista priva di scrupoli e propone a Paul Metzler, il capitano della squadra di football, di candidarsi per la medesima carica. La sorpresa di Tracy nell'apprendere di non essere l'unica candidata sarà ancora più grande quando vedrà scendere in campo anche la sorella di Paul, Tammy, desiderosa di vendicarsi del fratello, colpevole di essersi fidanzato con Lisa, una ragazza di cui si era invaghita. I tre candidati non potrebbero avere programmi più diversi: se Tracy punta al miglioramento dell'efficenza dell'istituto, Paul si concentra sulle attività ricreative. Tammy, al contrario, si pone in palese rottura con il sistema scolastico invitando gli studenti ad astenersi. Nel frattempo la vita sentimentale di McAllister si complica: frustrato dalla monotonia coniugale, stringe una relazione con Linda, moglie di un suo ex collega licenziato a causa di una relazione proprio con Tracy. Quando la campagna elettorale giunge al culmine, Tracy, schiacciata dalla pressione psicologica, strappa tutti i manifesti elettorali affissi da Paul. Viene aperta un'inchiesta: interrogata da McAllister, Tammy si autoaccusa, scagionando Tracy che in questo modo ottiene una vittoria di misura su Paul. McAllister tuttavia non ci sta: incaricato dello spoglio, fa sparire alcune schede, proclamando vincitore Metzler. Il trucco viene però smascherato proprio quando la moglie di McAllister scopre di essere stata tradita. Licenziato, ridotto sul lastrico dal divorzio, il professore è costretto a trasferirsi: riuscirà a farsi una nuova vita e, qualche anno dopo, incontrerà casualmente Tracy a Washingthon, ormai lanciata in un'irresistibile carriera politica
