When Apple's mother returns after eleven years of absence, Apple feels whole again. She will have an answer to her burning question ? why did you go? And she will have someone who understands what it means to be a teenager ? unlike Nana. But just like the stormy Christmas Eve when she left, her mother's homecoming is bitter sweet, and Apple wonders who is really looking after whom. It's only when Apple meets someone more lost than she is, that she begins to see things as they really are. Like a brilliant hybrid of Cathy Cassidy and Jacqueline Wilson, Sarah Crossan entices you into her world, then tells a moving, perceptive and beautifully crafted, Carnegie Shortlisted story which has the power to make you laugh and cry. Shortlisted for The CILIP Carnegie Medal in 2015.

Armed with a suitcase and an old laundry bag filled with clothes, Kasienka and her mother head for England. Life is lonely for Kasienka. At home her mother's heart is breaking and at school friends are scarce. But when someone special swims into her life, Kasienka learns that there might be more than one way for her to stay afloat. The Weight of Water is a startlingly original piece of fiction; most simply a brilliant coming of age story, it also tackles the alienation experienced by many young immigrants.

Although very educational 'Aaron Apple and the Rain' is an interesting story book. It introduces science and nutrition through a fun tale (which makes learning easier). It is also useful in schools (covering topics such as water) and has illustrations on every page (for the reader who struggles). So if you are looking for a book that can teach you, whilst you have fun, then Journey with Aaron down to Kaiamaville and learn. Some meteorological concepts included plus the added bonus of learning about the nutitional benefits, one can get from apples. Children just love this book (so don't let them miss out).

For many years, Ade Simmons has been an outsider, trapped in an abusive relationship, seeking sanctuary in his job as a radio producer, and in the checklists he makes in an attempt to regain control of his sorry excuse of a life. Actor Kris Johansson is patient, gentle and passionate—everything that Ade’s ex-boyfriend is not. When Kris takes a role in one of Ade’s plays, the attraction is mutual and instant. It is the turning point for Ade. He can either stay on the same path, with Fergus—the bully who has repressed, used and isolated him from his friends and family—or he can look in the other direction, towards Kris—the handsome actor with family and friends who readily accept him. But Fergus will not give up his punchbag so easily—can Ade finally find the strength to fight back?

Daily meditations that nourish elder wisdom and inspire hope. This book is all about finding and offering hope. It's about I claiming the full meaning of eldership and knowing that elder-women have much to offer. This collection of 365 daily reflections offers elderwomen (and younger women who wish to listen in) an opportunity to nourish the wisdom and deep knowing that comes from life experience. It also holds out the potential for growth, the op-portunity to waken to different perspectives that can lead to rich possibilities and courageous actions. This is territory Donna Sinclair knows well. Retired from a 35-year career as a respected journalist, Sinclair has found plenty of life and purpose to carry her forward. In particular, she has come to realise the important roles elderwomen play in our society -- remembering the past, speaking out against injustice, seeking to restore the balance of creation. Sinclair also knows that in order to accomplish these difficult yet essential tasks, elderwomen need to nourish their inner life. The challenges women face today are so enormous and threat-ening, that it is easy to fall into despair. For this reason especially, elderwomen need to seek hope and share it generously as Sinclair does here.
