Siempre he pensado que mis monstruos vienen a visitarme a plena luz del día, nunca de noche. Por eso nunca he tenido miedo a la oscuridad, sólo me dan miedo las cosas reales: ponerse enfermo, las inyecciones, el dolor físico... la muerte. Esos son mis monstruos, no los fantasmas ni los vampiros o cualquier otra criatura que pueda esconderse debajo de tu cama. Bueno, supongo que un asesino en serie también podría atacarte por la noche, pero también por el día con la misma facilidad. Pero estaba equivocada. La oscuridad sólo lo empeora. Las peores pesadillas de Mary Hades se hacen realidad cuando a sus diecisiete años sus padres la internan en un hospital psiquiátrico. ¿Cómo puede mejorar si el lugar en el que tiene que hacerlo le da pavor? Su amistad con los demás pacientes (su extravagante compañera de habitación, Lacey; su protector, Mo; y el chico misterioso de ojos verdes, Johnny) hacen que recupere la esperanza… hasta que se da cuenta de que los pacientes del hospital están muriendo sin explicación alguna. Hay algo siniestro que los acecha en los pasillos y sólo Mary puede detenerlo. Sin embargo, cuanto más cerca está de las respuestas a sus preguntas, más peligrosa se vuelve la situación y Mary descubre que la única forma de salir con vida del hospital es enfrentarse a sus propios miedos.

So when he meets the girl cast as his sister in the production, he immediately hatches a scheme to get to know the real person behind the character.

In Conflicting Commitments, Shannon Gleeson goes beyond the debate over federal immigration policy to examine the complicated terrain of immigrant worker rights. Federal law requires that basic labor standards apply to all workers, yet this principle clashes with increasingly restrictive immigration laws and creates a confusing bureaucratic terrain for local policymakers and labor advocates. Gleeson examines this issue in two of the largest immigrant gateways in the country: San Jose, California, and Houston, Texas. Conflicting Commitments reveals two cities with very different approaches to addressing the exploitation of immigrant workers--both involving the strategic coordination of a range of bureaucratic brokers, but in strikingly different ways. Drawing on the real life accounts of ordinary workers, federal, state, and local government officials, community organizers, and consular staff, Gleeson argues that local political contexts matter for protecting undocumented workers in particular. Providing a rich description of the bureaucratic minefields of labor law, and the explosive politics of immigrant rights, Gleeson shows how the ons learned from San Jose and Houston can inform models for upholding labor and human rights in the United States.
