• Lucy Fly n'a pas de chance.
    Pas de chance d'être la seule fille d'une famille anglaise de huit enfants où l'on aime que les garçons. Pas de chance d'avoir fui à l'autre bout de la terre (Tokyo) pour se retrouver piégée par l'amitié envahissante de Lily, une compatriote. Pas de chance de découvrir que son amant et sa meilleure amie ont une liaison. Pas de chance, lorsque Lily se fait assassiner, d'être la dernière personne à avoir été vue avec elle.
    Pas de chance car elle fait une coupable idéale. Mais s'agit-il de malchance ? Où qu'elle aille et quoi qu'elle fasse, Lucy Fly semble semer la mort autour d'elle. La police nipponne s'interroge. Le lecteur aussi, indécis jusqu'à la dernière page sur le mystère de cette héroïne ambiguë qu'il voudrait croire innocente...

  • Anglais Earthquake Bird

    Jones Susanna

    Early this morning, several hours before my arrest, I was woken by an earth tremor. I mention the incident not to suggest that there was a connection that somehow the fault lines in my life came crashing together in a form of a couple of policemen for in Tokyo we have a quake like this every month. I am simply relating the sequence of events as it happened. It has been an unusual day and I would hate to forget anything . . . So begins The Earthquake Bird, a haunting novel set in Japan which reveals a murder on its first page and takes its readers into the mind of the chief suspect, Lucy Fly a young, vulnerable English girl living and working in Tokyo as a translator. As Lucy is interrogated by the police she reveals her past to the reader, and it is a past which is dangerously ambiguous and compromising . . . Why did Lucy leave England for the foreign anonymity of Japan ten years before, and what exactly had prompted her to sever all links with her family back home? She was the last person to see the murdered girl alive, so why was she not more forthcoming about the circumstances of their last meeting? As Lucys story unfolds, it emerges that secrets, both past and present, obsess her waking life. A novel imbued with the chill of The Wasp Factory and the shock of The Sculptress, this is the debut of a major new talent. p> The sentences may be lean and spare, but the murder on the first page heralds a weight and menace to this story thats strangely chilling . . .This is a very compelling debut Elle Fast paced and claustrophobic . . . a subtle portrait of how jealousy blooms from nothing The Times Compulsively imaginative . . . a beautiful and compelling novel Colin Dexter Youll find this story still lurking in the dark corners of your mind long after youve put the book down Face

  • The innovative volume seeks to broaden the scope of research on mathematical problem solving in different educational environments. It brings together contributions not only from leading researchers, but also highlights collaborations with younger researchers to broadly explore mathematical problem-solving across many fields: mathematics education, psychology of education, technology education, mathematics popularization, and more. The volume's three major themes-technology, creativity, and affect-represent key issues that are crucially embedded in the activity of problem solving in mathematics teaching and learning, both within the school setting and beyond the school. Through the book's new pedagogical perspectives on these themes, it advances the field of research towards a more comprehensive approach on mathematical problem solving. Broadening the Scope of Research on Mathematical Problem Solving will prove to be a valuable resource for researchers and teachers interested in mathematical problem solving, as well as researchers and teachers interested in technology, creativity, and affect.

The central connection between subsistence, sustainability and social entrepreneurship is also explored.
