              Once in a great while a book comes along that radically changes our understanding of a crucial political issue and helps to fuel a social movement. The New Jim Crow is such a book. Lawyer and activist Michelle Alexander offers a stunning account of the rebirth of a caste-like sys...tem in the United States, one that has resulted in millions of African Americans locked behind bars and then relegated to a permanent second-class status, denied the very rights supposedly won in the Civil Rights movement. Challenging the notion that the election of Barack Obama signalled a new era of colourblindness in the United States, The New Jim Crow reveals how racial discrimination was not ended but merely redesigned. By targeting black men through the War on Drugs and decimating communities of colour, the American criminal justice system functions as a contemporary system of racial control, relegating millions to a permanent second-class status even as it formally adheres to the principle of colourblindness. A searing call to action for everyone concerned with social justice, The New Jim Crow is one of the most important books about race in the 21st century.

              Lemon Fresh has seen better days. After the climactic battle in Babel, she finds herself separated from Ezekiel and Cricket in the wastelands. Lemon's abilities to manipulate electricity mark her as a deviate, and deadly corporate operatives are hunting her to use as a weapon in ...the war between BioMaas Incorporated and Daedelus Technologies. Instead, Lemon finds herself falling in with a group of fellow deviates-a band of teenagers with astonishing abilities, led by an enigmatic figure known as the Major, who may hold the secrets to Lemon's past. Meanwhile, Cricket find himself in possession of the puritanical Brotherhood, a religious cult set for a head-on collision with the Major and his band. Searching for Lemon, Ezekiel finds a strange ally in an old enemy, and uncovers a plot that may see him reunited with his beloved Ana. And inside Babel, a remade Eve hatches a plan to bring an end to the world.

              At the office of Safe Steps, Victoria?s dedicated 24/7 family violence response call centre, phone counsellors receive a call every three minutes. Many women are repeat callers- on average, they will go back to an abusive partner eight times before leaving for good. 'You must get... so frustrated when you think a woman?s ready to leave and then she decides to go back,? I say. 'No,? replies one phone counsellor, pointedly. 'I?m frustrated that even though he promised to stop, he chose to abuse her again.? Women are abused or killed by their partners at astonishing rates- in Australia, almost 17 per cent of women over the age of fifteen - one in six - have been abused by an intimate partner. In this confronting and deeply researched account, journalist Jess Hill uncovers the ways in which abusers exert control in the darkest - and most intimate - ways imaginable. She asks- What do we know about perpetrators? Why is it so hard to leave? What does successful intervention look like? What emerges is not only a searing investigation of the violence so many women experience, but a dissection of how that violence can be enabled and reinforced by the judicial system we trust to protect us. Combining exhaustive research with riveting storytelling, See What You Made Me Do dismantles the flawed logic of victim-blaming and challenges everything you thought you knew about domestic and family violence.

              Forget Instagram and Snapchat filters, there is no hiding when it comes to Lex Croucher's frank and candid text. This is THE survival guide to making it through adulthood and coming out on the other side in one piece. Even if most of the time you feel like a human courgetti going... through an emotional spiralizer. From learning to love your body, 'wrap yourself up in love, like you're a delicious sausage roll - you're on the same team'; dealing with crushes 'is it alright to only fancy that one actor from a superhero film with a slightly weird face, and commit to them fully, forsaking all others?'; making friends 'sometimes they are your comrades-in-arms, sometimes they're the only ones who can remember where you left your phone', and absolutely everything else in between, Lex Croucher tells it like it is. Through humour, anecdotes, everyday situations, and brilliant design, girls will realise that we're all going through the same (sometimes embarrassing) situations and thinking the same (sometimes loopy) thoughts. Lex's effortlessly witty text will help girls (and women) realise that they are not alone!
