              Surviving school with one eye open. Ross Maloy just wants to be a normal seventh grader. He does not want to lose his hair, or wear a weird hat, or deal with the kids at school who don't know what to say to 'the cancer kid'. But with a sudden and horrifying diagnosis of a rare ey...e cancer, blending in is off the table. Based on Rob Harrell's real-life experiences, and filled with his cartoons and illustrations, this very personal and poignant novel is an unforgettable, hilarious and uplifting story of survival, and of finding music, magic and laughter in all of life's weirdness. EARLY PRAISE FOR WINK: 'Wink is the story of a boy's survival that is both deeply personal and wildly funny. It's fun, it's important, and it's got songs! Rock on, Rob Harrell! Batpig forever!' - Max Brallier, New York Times bestselling author of Last Kids on Earth 'I loved Wink! Heartbreakingly funny, this book is proof that laughter is the best form of medicine. A smart, likable story that's full of heart.' - Meg Cabot, author of The Princess Diaries 'Wink has all the right elements: humour, heart, and a Batpig. A deeply personal and moving story, it will (pun alert) rock you to the core.' - Terri Libenson, award-winning comics creator and author of the bestselling Invisible Emmie 'With a cast of characters that feel both deeply human and fully seen, this book has shot onto my list of all-time favourite books. Simply superb!' - Ingrid Law, author of Newbery Honor Book Savvy 'Funny, moving, and ultimately triumphant, Wink is a powerful story of everyday resilience, and of the different types of family that unexpectedly sprout up in the wake of tragedy.' - M.A. Larson, author of Pennyroyal Academy

              Prime Minister of New Zealand Jacinda Ardern is a leader for a new generation, one tired of inertia in the face of pressing issues such as climate change, immigration and the rise of far-right terrorism. Ardern was catapulted onto the international stage with her grace and compas...sion following the Christchurch mosque shooting. Oprah Winfrey invited us to 'channel our inner Jacindas' as praise for Ardern flooded headlines and social media. The world's youngest female head of government, and only the second elected world leader to give birth while in office, Ardern describes herself as a progressive and a social democrat. In this revealing biography, journalist Madeleine Chapman discovers the woman behind the headlines. Politically engaged from an early age, Ardern has encountered her fair share of sexism, but rather than let that harden her she advocates 'rising above' critics. In her first press conference, she announced an election campaign of 'relentless positivity'. The tactic was a resounding success- donations poured in and Labour rebounded in the polls. But can Ardern live up to her promise? What does her new style of leadership look like in practice? And what can we learn from the world's reaction to this inspiring leader?
