Dominik und zwei seiner Freunde haben gemeinsam einen Brandanschlag auf ein Asylbewerberheim geplant. Nur noch 24 Stunden, dann soll die Aktion starten. 24 Stunden, in denen Dominik langsam aber sicher Zweifel kommen: Der Anschlag könnte ihn ins Gefängnis bringen - und was hätte er schon davon? Er ist zwar gegen Ausländer, aber so politisch wie seine rechtsradikalen Freunde ist er nicht. Eigentlich will er nur eins: reich werden, ohne viel dafür zu tun...
Wenn auch aus falschen Motiven, kämpft Dominik um den Mut, sich zu verweigern.
Das Buch lässt sich schnell lesen, die Denkweise eines eigentlich "ganz normalen Jugendlichen" wird recht anschaulich dargestellt. Er ist "in falsche Gesellschaft" (Neo-Nazis) gekommen und weiß nicht so recht, wie er aus der Sache wieder herauskommen soll, was er glauben soll, wem er sich anvertrauen kann.
Als es dann "ernst" wird (der geplante Brandanschlag auf ein Asylbewerberheim) wird ihm glücklicherweise noch klar, dass er sich auch mitschuldig macht, wenn er nichts verrät. Seine Freundin und sein Bewährungshelfer sind nicht ganz unschuldig daran!
Das Buch ist seit dem 3.10.06 als "versprochene Überraschung" zu SecurityBlanket (als kleiner Dank für "The Crock of Gold") unterwegs - enjoy it!
What a nice surprise! Thank you so very much! This book looks like something that I can manage and I'm most grateful to you for hand selecting it for me. Also, thank you for the kind note. It makes me feel very optimistic about trying to improve my german language skills. I do appreciate the idea of reading a book that originally was written in german, as opposed to a translated american author. I've often thought that the regions of the US alone are all so different in dialect and colloquial language to the point where it is difficult for a native speaker to keep it all straight, so I imagine much is lost in translation.
As you've said it may take me a while to read this book, but I hope not too long.
And many thanks for keeping me in mind for future books. If there's anything on my shelf AVL shelf that you would like, please don't hesitate to ask -- I will be most happy to send it to you. :)

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:
It's hard to believe I received this book close to eight years ago! It was part of a book trade with DEESE with the intention that I would improve my German reading skills. Well, as the famous quote from Robbie Burns goes:
"The best laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men gang aft agley"
Or to put it another way, life got in the way. I kept this book on a shelf, where it sat and maintained its pristine condition. On Sunday, July 6th, 2014 I ran across it and at that time decided it was time it moves along on its journey. SInce international postage has skyrocketed in the USA due to the elimination of overseas surface (slow boat) mail I concluded that this books needs to stay stateside. I came up with the idea that it needs an academic setting to find a fluent German language reader and so I recalled that Badgerjim of the chit-chat forums is a university instructor. I contacted him and he has graciously agreed to receive this book as well as another German language book that I have from another BCer, and he will get them moving in a directions where, hopefully, they will find a new reader and their journey will continue.
Thank you, DEESE, for this book lo these many years ago and thank you for your patience as your book sat idle before finding its travelling legs again!
And thank you to Badgerjim for helping these two books continue on their destined journey!

This is the second of two books in German that arrived here today. I'll be passing it along at the University of Maine at Farmington, where I teach. Nice to see books that have traveled so far!

I'm passing this on to a colleague and friend who is an expert on German politics--I think he may have some students who would like this.
I hope that you enjoy the book--and thanks for coming to Bookcrossing.com! When you have a moment, I'd appreciate it if you'd write a journal entry to say where this book has gone next.
