              Ruby was named after a song about freedom, but she's far from free. She's trapped by her mum's accident, her past as a famous pianist a distant memory. This was never the plan - both of them invisible and voiceless in a dusty small town. And Ruby wants to be heard. But that was b...efore Joey Milano. Before that awful party. Now the only thing Ruby's sure of is that she'll never ever trust anyone again. When the opportunity of a lifetime comes knocking, and a boy from her past reaches out, Ruby's not fooled. Some things are broken beyond repair. Or are they?

              All will be well when King Richard returns . . . but King Richard has been captured. To raise the money for his ransom, every lord in England is raising taxes, the French are eyeing the empty throne, and the man they called Robin Hood , the man the Sheriff claims is dead, is ever...ywhere and nowhere at once. He's with a band of outlaws in Sherwood Forest, raiding guard outposts. He's with Nottingham's largest gang, committing crimes to protest the taxes. He's in the lowest slums of the city, conducting a reign of terror against the city's most vulnerable. A hero to some, a monster to others, and an idea that can't simply be killed. But who's really under the hood? Lionhearts is the second instalment in Nathan Makaryk's captivating Nottingham series that will leave you questioning everything you think you know about Robin Hood, King Richard, and the world they created. ' Nottingham was the most pleasurable reading experience I've had since first discovering George R R Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire.' Bryan Cogman, co-Executive Producer/Writer, Game of Thrones

              It seemed like a good plan at first. When the only other virgin in her group of friends loses it at Keely's own eighteenth birthday party, she knows it's time for drastic measures. If she's going to avoid heading to college without any experience of her own, she needs to find the... guy, and fast. Problem is, she's known all the boys in her small high school forever, and it's kinda hard to be into a guy when you watched him eat crayons in kindergarten. So she can't believe her luck when she meets a ridiculously hot new guy named Dean. Not only does he look like he's fallen out of a classic movie poster, but he drives a motorcycle, flirts with ease, and might actually be into her. But Dean's already in college, and Keely is convinced he'll drop her if he finds out how inexperienced she is. That's when she talks herself into a new plan- her lifelong best friend, Andrew, would never hurt or betray her, and he's clearly been with enough girls that he can show her the ropes before she goes all the way with Dean. Of course, the plan only works if Andrew and Keely stay friends-just friends-so things are about to get complicated.

              Caste: The Lies That Divide Us

              Caste: The Lies That Divide Us (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Wilkerson, Isabel

              'The hierarchy of caste is not about feelings or morality. It is about power - which groups have it and which do not' Beyond race or class, our lives are defined by a powerful, unspoken system of divisions. In Caste, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Isabel Wilkerson gives an astound...ing portrait of this hidden phenomenon. Linking America, India and Nazi Germany, Wilkerson reveals how our world has been shaped by caste - and how its rigid, arbitrary hierarchies still divide us today. With clear-sighted rigour, Wilkerson unearths the eight pillars that connect caste systems across civilizations, and demonstrates how our own era of intensifying conflict and upheaval has arisen as a consequence of caste. Weaving in stories of real people, she shows how its insidious undertow emerges every day; she documents its surprising health costs; and she explores its effects on culture and politics. Finally, Wilkerson points forward to the ways we can - and must - move beyond its artificial divisions, towards our common humanity. Beautifully written and deeply original, Caste is an eye-opening examination of what lies beneath the surface of ordinary lives. No one can afford to ignore the mo
