Two hot brothers, one steady and secured, groomed to take over their family's billion dollar enterprise. The other, a rising football star whose body is well-known to women of all ages in print and in person. Both in love with the same woman, whom they can't have - Summer Jones, their sister's best friend since childhood, and the girl they promised to protect. She's never been so lost in her life, following the tragedy that rocked her steady and secured life. Always the perfect girl, the good girl who does everything to take care of everyone else, she's now the one who's fallen too far. Not Drew, not Nat, and not even Rachel. She knows she has to choose and make a decision. She knows she has to do the right thing, but as she decides with her mind, her heart rebels. Her desire for both Donovan brothers has grown insatiable and an addiction so much so that lines are blurred and nothing is clear. Just when everything seems bleak and hopeless, comes a revelation so deep, that what seems far from perfect becomes perfect in what turns out to be the Donovan's most perfect summer.

This balanced, mainstream, totally up-to-date text is characterized by its focus on the connection between oneself and the social world. It teaches students "how" to think, rather than just "what" to think, draws the connection between objectivity and subjectivity in sociological research, and places an emphasis on the importance of diversity and the global perspective. Students have to navigate a world that is increasingly complex and confusing. SOCIOLOGY: YOUR COMPASS FOR A NEW WORLD will help them do just that. Bob Brym and John Lie wrote this book to show undergraduate students that sociology can help them make sense of their lives, however uncertain they may appear to be. By revealing the opportunities and constraints students face, the book helps them know themselves and see what they can become in this particular social and historical context.
