            In this book for young people struggling with substance abuse, Kyle Keegan recounts his own remarkable story of drug abuse and ruthless addiction. Keegan, now an adult recovering from his addiction, discusses his experience as a well adjusted adolescent who fell victim to heroin ...and whose life was almost destroyed by the devastating drug. He also provides useful information, such as how to recognise and accept that there is a problem, how to find professional help, and how to stay happy and healthy in recovery.

            Aceh Revives

            Aceh Revives

            By Noel Trustrum, Dr

            Behind the stunning photos and personal accounts of Aceh Revives there is a secondary theme. Author, scientist and photographer, Dr Trustrum, produced the book while recovering from cancer. For Trustrum, it was a type of therapy and the resilience of the Acehnese people inspired ...him to move beyond his own personal struggle for good health. More than 230,000 people were killed in 14 countries. Indonesia, and particularly the province of Aceh in Sumatra, was one of the worst hit. More than 170,000 lives were lost and half a million of the province's population of 4.5 million were left homeless. The tsunami washed away hundreds of kilometres of roads and destroyed 120 bridges. This is Trustrum's second book documenting the recovery of Indonesia since the tsunami. In 2012, the bravery of the Archenese prompted him to produce a small, self-published book called SCARS: Life after the Tsunami. It features a sequence of photos of landscapes and people during the recovery over a nine-month period after the earthquake and tsunami.
