“I give you the mausoleum of all hope and desire. . . . I give it to you not that you may remember time, but that you might forget it now and then for a moment and not spend all of your breath trying to conquer it. Because no battle is ever won he said. They are not even fought. The field only reveals to man his own folly and despair, and victory is an illusion of philosophers and fools.” —from The Sound and the Fury The Sound and the Fury is the tragedy of the Compson family, featuring some of the most memorable characters in literature: beautiful, rebellious Caddy; the manchild Benjy; haunted, neurotic Quentin; Jason, the brutal cynic; and Dilsey, their black servant. Their lives fragmented and harrowed by history and legacy, the character’s voices and actions mesh to create what is arguably Faulkner’s masterpiece and one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century.

Having spent most of her senior year flying under the radar, the last thing Ella Lockhart expected was to have a tornado rip straight through her house, leaving her homeless. It's bad enough that the whole school now pities her, but did her parents have to let the neighbors take them in? Now she's sharing a house with Ethan Poe, her former best friend-turned-enemy. All those feelings she used to have for him are starting to rain down on her again. Too bad he's a jerk and his new girlfriend has territorial issues. Thanks to Mother Nature, Ella's house and her entire life have been turned upside down. Ethan isn't quite sure why Ella hates him so much, but he does know she wants nothing to do with him. He's never quite gotten over the crush he had on her as a kid, and now that she's living across the hall, it's hard to stay away. His girlfriend isn't helping the situation and when she shows her true colors, he doesn't want to date her anymore. He wants to date someone like Ella. Too bad she hates him.

"Somos un bonche de mujeres exitosas, algunas con los pies en la tierra, algunas con la cabeza en las nubes y otras con expectativas en el m�s all�. Todas fuertes, guapas y divertidas y por eso las respeto de coraz�n. Con o sin marido, mal folladas o felices, en espa�ol o en ingl�s, nuestra �nica intenci�n en la vida es dise�ar y construir un puente indestructible entre nuestros corazones y nuestras mentes." Somos Mar�a, Linda, Martita, Astrid, Gladys, Victoria, Yamila, Zulma, Elisa y Cecilia: diez mujeres, un camino... En este honesto (#nofilter) y humor�stico relato nos damos cuenta lo distintas que somos y c�mo, al mismo tiempo, queremos lo mismo: simplicidad, amor, paz, balance, celebrar nuestra feminidad, y saber que todo va a estar bien. Que s�lo podemos controlar nuestras intenciones, mas nunca los resultados. Aunque a veces nos cueste reconocer y escuchar por temor a ser vulnerables por temor a lo desconocido--a lo que ya est� escrito, rompemos estereotipos seg�n los vamos creando. As�, nos declaramos perfectamente imperfectas.
