Life in Bangkok for young people is marked by profound, interlocking changes and transitions. This book offers an ethnographic account of growing up in the city´s slums, struggling to get by in a rapidly developing and globalizing economy and trying to fulfil one´s dreams. At the same time, it reflects on the issue of agency, exploring its negative potential when exercised by young people living under severe structural constraint. It offers an antidote to neoliberal ideas around personal responsibility, and the assumed potential for individuals to break through structures of constraint in any sustained way.

Sometimes what you´re searching for finds you. Rashani has a problem—too many terrific guys and too little time. She´s trying to figure out if she has a real love connection with any of her teammates on the Ice Search and Rescue Team. Just when she started to narrow down the field, there´s a new entry to consider. Dr. Drake Stoker loves Trixie, the genetically-engineered polmund who was literally made for search and rescue situations in extreme cold weather. The Venlanten scientist never has trouble finding a date, but he may have found his true love on Ice. Now, he has to convince her that he´s sticking around. When Dr. Drake joins the Ice Search and Rescue team to find one of their own, he may have found just what he didn´t know he needed. Welcome to Ice, the flash-frozen third moon of the planet Zavaroff. Ice has been developed as a resort focused on Ice related activities—ice climbing, ice skiing, ice sled racing. The resort and village are completely enclosed for the comfort of Ice´s citizens and visitors. Step through the Erdexi transport sphere and meet the people who live, work, and fall in love on Ice. Searching for Love is the first book in Jo Carey's Ice Search and Rescue series. 64 pages.
