              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!

I am a girl trying to forget. She is a woman trying to remember. Allison is in danger at home. Her stepmother ...has run away and her father is getting worse. So she runs away too and with no where to live finds herself hiding out, miles from home, in an elderly woman's shed. But this woman, Marla, has dementia and doesn't recognise her as Allison, believing she is an old friend from her past called Toffee. So this is who Allison becomes, morphing into a person Marla usually knows and trusts but sometimes fears and fights. As their bond grows, Allison begins to ask herself - where is home? What is a family? And most importantly, who am I, really?

              Laugh-out-loud funny and instantly recognisable - not since The Inbetweeners has a coming of age story been so irreverent and relatable. Fifteen-year-old Sam isn't special. He's not a famous vlogger, he's never gone viral, and he doesn't want to be the Next Big Thing. What he lik...es most is chatting to his friends and having a bit of a kick about. None of which was a problem until Dad got rich and Mum made the whole family move to London. Now Sam is being made to go to the North London Academy for the Gifted and Talented, where every student is too busy planning Hollywood domination or starting alt-metal psychedelica crossover bands or making clothes out of bathmats to give someone as normal as him the time of day. Can Sam navigate his way through the weirdness and find a way to be himself? A brilliant modern satire about fitting in, falling out and staying true to your own averageness.

              The Fire This Time: A New Generation Speaks About Race

              The Fire This Time: A New Generation Speaks About Race (Paperback)

              By Ward, Jesmyn

              THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Edited by two-time National Book Award winner and Women's Prize shortlisted-author Jesmyn Ward, a timely and groundbreaking collection of essays and poems about race in America In this bestselling collection of essays and poems, Jesmyn Ward gathers a... new generation of writers and thinkers to speak on race. From Claudia Rankine to Rachel Kaadzi Ghansah, Kiese Laymon to Carol Anderson, these voices shine a light on the darkest corners of American history, wrestle with the struggles the country faces today and imagine a better future. Envisioned as a response to The Fire Next Time, James Baldwin's groundbreaking 1963 essay collection, The Fire This Time considers the black experience in modern America. Significant progress has been made in the fifty years since Baldwin's essays were published, but America is a long distance away from a post-racial society - a truth that must be confronted if the country is to continue to work towards change. Baldwin's 'fire next time' is now upon us, and it needs to be talked about. Sage, urgent and impassioned, this is an essential collection edited by one of America's greatest writers.

But just like the stormy Christmas Eve when she left, her mother's homecoming is bittersweet, 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. Multi-award-winning author, and Laureate na nOg, Sarah Crossan tells a moving, perceptive and beautifully crafted story which has the power to make you laugh and cry.

              The Gentle Art of Tramping (Hardback)

              'Know how to tramp and you know how to live... Know how to meet your fellow-wanderer, how to be passive to the beauty of Nature and how to be active to its wildness and its rigour' The tramp is a friend of society; a seeker, they pay their way if they can. One includes in the cat...egory tramp all true Bohemians, pilgrims, explorers afoot, walking tourists, and the like. Tramping is a way of approach, to Nature, to your fellow-man, to a nation, to beauty, to life itself. It is a gentle art and there is much to learn; illusions to overcome, prejudices and habits to be shaken off. 'The adventure is not the getting there, it is the on-the-way. It is not the expected; it is the surprise; not the fulfilment of prophecy but the providence of something better than prophesied' Originally published in 1926, The Gentle Art of Tramping is a guide for anyone who has dreamed of taking to the road with nothing more than a bag full of essentials and big ideas. It gives guidance on walking, being open to discovery and being kind - advice as relevant now as it was then.
