Antwone Fisher by Antwone Quenton Fisher( Visual )

Trama: Antwone Fisher è un marinaio di colore che non riesce a controllare gli eccessi di ira e le esplosioni di collera scatenate da inopportuni commenti dei commilitoni sul colore della sua pelle o sulla sua presunta omosessualità. Dopo l'ennesima scazzottata, Antwone si trova costretto ad andare in terapia da uno psichiatra militare, il dr Jareme Davenport. Inizialmente refrattario a qualsiasi scambio di idee con il medico, Antwone si lascia convincere a raccontare i traumi della propria infanzia quando scopre che l'uomo è realmente interessato alle sue vicende. Dalle sue confessioni si delinea un'infanzia contrassegnata da numerosi traumi: venuto alla luce in un istituto penitenziario da una madre che non lo riconosce, orfano di padre (morto durante una rapina), sistemato prima in un orfanotrofio, viene adottato da una famiglia guidata da un reverendo cristiano solo in apparenza protettiva e amorevole nei suoi confronti. In realtà Antwone, rinchiuso in cantina insieme ad altri due bambini, anche loro adottati, ha subito ogni forma di violenza, compresa quella sessuale, dalla matrigna e dalla sorellastra. Grazie alle sedute terapeutiche, il giovane marinaio recupera poco per volta autostima, serenità, capacità di guardare con ottimismo al futuro. Ed è proprio grazie a questa nuova convinzione di sé che egli riesce a conquistare la sua prima ragazza, costruire un solido rapporto di amicizia con lo psichiatra e soprattutto rispondere alla domanda che ha assillato la sua esistenza sin da piccolo: perché la madre, alla nascita, non ha voluto riconoscerlo?

Trama: Steve Clark, un adolescente di Chicago, si trasferisce insieme ai genitori nell'apparente serena cittadina di Cradle Bay. Steve ha recentemente vissuto il dramma del suicidio del fratello e Cradle Bay potrebbe offrire quella tranquillità di cui la famiglia ha bisogno. Frequentando il liceo della piccola città, Steve stringe amicizia con Gavin, un ragazzo che vive appartato dai suoi compagni di scuola. All'interno del liceo, un gruppo di ragzzi mostra apertamente la proprio eccellenza nel campo dello studio e della disciplina: essi, che formano una sorta di club esclusivo chiamato Blue Ribbons, si distinguono nelle competizioni sportive, perseguono una vita sana bevendo soltanto latte e yogurth, palesano la loro eleganza con abiti in perfetto stile college e suscitano l'ammirazione di tutti gli insegnanti del liceo. I Blue Robbins, pur nel loro estremo rigore mostrano delle improvvise esplosioni di violenza. La teoria di Gavin è che i Blue Robbins, in realtà, siano una schiera di robot programmati per eccellere, ma ben presto anche lui, per volontà dei suoi genitori, è costretto a far parte attivamente del gruppo. Steve, sconvolto dal voltafaccia di Gavin e aiutato dalla giovane Rachel, comincia ad indagare sul gruppo. La scoperta è sorprendente: il gruppo esclusivo è formato da individui modificati in laboratorio per opera di un inseganate, il professor Caldicott, il quale, in virtù di un microprocessore inserito nella pupilla dei ragazzi, intende creare una serie di elementi che progressivamente assumano le redini della società con lo scopo di gestirla e migliorarla. Steve e Rachel, con l'aiuto di un derattizzatore, Newberry, riescono a contrastre ed eliminare Caldicott e i Blue Robbins, ma, qualche tempo dopo, Gavin, sopravvissuto allo sterminio dei suoi mostruosi compagni, inizia la carriera di insegnante con l'intenzione di continuare l'opera di Caldicott
