Five-year-old Kerrie-Ann Hill has an unusual neighbour. Mrs Ivanovich collects butterflies and she shows Kerrie-Ann how to catch them, take care of them, and even how to kill them using a jar and some funny-smelling liquid. Kerrie-Ann loves looking at these beautiful, delicate creatures, and imagines them flying free. This is Kerrie-Ann's story. She doesn't know who her father is, and her mother is a junkie. By the age of ten, she's selling drugs at school. By twelve, she's been beaten up by a customer, hidden stolen guns, done time in a girls' home, and already has a taste for whiz. And then there's Mark - her only true friend and the one person she can trust. Their friendship turns into a powerful love and together they are invincible. But in their world it's easy to lose control. On the drug-riddled estate with an atmosphere as lethal as a killing jar, it seems that Kerrie-Ann doesn't stand a chance. Unless she can make use of what Mrs Ivanovich taught her all those years ago.

President Bill Clinton gives us his views on the challenges facing the United States today and why government matters - presenting his ideas on restoring economic growth, job creation, financial responsibility, resolving the mortgage crisis, and pursuing a strategy to get us "back in the future business." He explains how we got into the current economic crisis, and offers specific recommendations on how we can put people back to work, increase bank lending and corporate investment, double our exports, restore our manufacturing base, and create new businesses. He supports President Obama's emphasis on green technology, saying that changing the way we produce and consume energy is the strategy most likely to spark a fast-growing economy while enhancing our national security. Clinton also stresses that we need a strong private sector and a smart government working together to restore prosperity and progress, demonstrating that whenever we've given in to the temptation to blame government for all our problems, we've lost our ability to produce sustained economic growth and shared prosperity. Clinton writes, "There is simply no evidence that we can succeed in the twenty-first century with an antigovernment strategy,"based on" a philosophy grounded in 'you're on your own' rather than 'we're all in this together.' "He believes that conflict between government and the private sector has proved to be good politics but has produced bad policies, giving us a weak economy with not enough jobs, growing income inequality and poverty, and a decline in our competitive position. In the real world, cooperation works much better than conflict, and "Americans need victories in real life."

Deutschland hat viel Liebenswertes zu bieten: Sparkassenberater, die von jeder Geldanlage abraten, Zeitungsenten aus Plüsch, ein findiges Finanzamt oder Vegetarier, die gerne Fleisch essen nur nicht das von Tieren. Außerdem gibt es bei uns die perfekte Form der Schriftgutverwaltung. Schließlich ist ein Land ein schwieriges Unternehmen, und um es in den Griff zu bekommen, braucht man Erfindungsgeist. So erfanden die Amerikaner den Colt, die Russen das Destilliergerät und die Deutschen den Leitz-Ordner. Wladimir Kaminer sieht seine Wahlheimat mit viel Verständnis für deren Schrullen und Besonderheiten. Und so sind wir am Ende von uns selbst ganz bezaubert.
