              Amy has only ever known what life is like in the Clearing. She knows what's expected of her.

She isn't fitting in; she do...esn't want to stay. What happens next will turn life as Amy knows it on its head. Freya has gone to great lengths to feel like a 'normal person'. In fact, if you saw her go about her day with her young son, you'd think she was an everyday mum. That is, until a young girl goes missing and someone from her past, someone she hasn't seen for a very long time, arrives in town. As Amy and Freya's story intertwines the secrets of the past bubble up to the surface. This rural Aussie town's dark underbelly is about to be exposed and lives will be destroyed.

              Meet a new kind of evil... you. It's something parents do every morning: Rachel Klein drops her daughter at the bus stop and heads into her day. But a phone call from an unknown number changes everything. It's a woman on the line, informing her that she has her daughter bound and... gagged in her back seat, and the only way Rachel will see her again is to follow her instructions exactly: pay a ransom, and find another child to abduct. This is no ordinary kidnapping: the caller is a mother herself, whose son has been taken, and if Rachel doesn't do as she's told, the boy will die. Rachel is now part of The Chain, an unending and ingenious scheme that turns victims into criminals - and is making someone else very rich in the process. The rules are simple, the moral challenges impossible; find the money fast, find your victim, and then commit a horrible act you'd have thought yourself incapable of just 24 hours ago. The masterminds behind The Chain know that parents will do anything for their children. And kidnapping is only the beginning... A breakout novel to rival Girl on the Train and Woman in the Window from one of the world's best crime writers.

              AJ Amon is your regular teenager. All he wants is to fit in. He wants to sit at the cool bench. He wants to make the top soccer team. He wants his first kiss. He also wants his Mum to survive. Having suddenly been diagnosed with advanced breast and brain cancer, AJ knows it's a l...ong shot, but if he manages to achieve his dreams, maybe it'll give his Mum enough strength to beat 'the irukandji'...? Maybe. In the meantime, he has to live with his African dad whom he doesn't really know. He finds him... well.. foreign. Even the way he says mosquito (like, moskweeto...urgh!) is weird. And if that's not bad enough he makes AJ go on stupid crabbing trips with him! Could life get any worse?? All AJ wants is for things to go back to the way they were. At the start of term. Only eight weeks before. But even if life doesn't return to normal, and his Mum doesn't survive - one thing's for certain: he's not going to cry. Based on his award-winning stand up show of the same name, and the loss of his own mother when he was 12 years old, Matt Okine's debut novel, Being Black n Chicken n Sh!t, is a funny, heart-warming, and sometimes surreal, look at how young people deal with grief, the loss of loved ones, and becoming an adult - all whilst desperately trying to fit in with the other kids.

              The name Captain James Cook is one of the most recognisable in Australian history - an almost mythic figure who is often discussed, celebrated, reviled and debated. But who was the real James Cook? This Yorkshire farm boy would go on to become the foremost mariner, scientist, nav...igator and cartographer of his era, and to personally map a third of the globe. His great voyages of discovery were incredible feats of seamanship and navigation. Leading a crew of men into uncharted territories, Cook would face the best and worst of humanity as he took himself and his crew to the edge of the known world - and beyond. With his masterful storytelling talent, Peter FitzSimons brings the real James Cook to life. Focusing on his most iconic expedition, the voyage of the Endeavour, where Cook first set foot on Australian and New Zealand soil, FitzSimons contrasts Cook against another figure who looms large in Australasian history: Joseph Banks, the aristocratic botanist. As they left England, Banks, a rich, famous playboy, was everything that Cook was not. The voyage tested Cook's character and would help define his legacy. Now, 240 years after James Cook's death, FitzSimons reveals what kind of man James was at heart. His strengths, his weaknesses, his passions and pursuits, failures and successes. James Cook reveals the man behind the myth.

              Orphan warriors fight for survival in a brutal medieval world in this fantastically thrilling adventure that continues the multi-million-copy selling TALES OF THE OTORI series 'It was as if they were pieces on a board which had been kicked over, each scattered in the dirt and alo...ne.' Orphaned by war, Sunaomi has been given a new name and a place of refuge at Terayama. If he ever leaves the temple he will be put to death. He is resigned to living out his life in seclusion. But fate has other plans for him and it is not long before he is dragged back into the world, with all its joys and dangers. And beyond that, another world of ghosts and monsters beckons to him as he discovers powers he never knew he had. Set in Lian Hearn's magical medieval world of the Otori and continuing the story of The Harsh Cry of the Heron, this is a thrilling tale of friendship and compassion, courage and adventure. Praise for Lian Hearn: 'Brutally thrilling historical fantasy' Herald Sun 'Much like Game of Thrones, the book can be read as political intrigue. Nobody is black or white, rather shades of grey' The Age 'Huge imaginative vitality. Moves onwards with the narrative force of a flood. It is easy to let the book sweep the reader away' Sydney Morning Herald 'The action comes thick and fast . . . Compelling characters and captivating worldbuilding' Japan Times

              Eve Rodsky is changing society one relationship at a time, by coming up with a 21st century solution to an age-old problem: women shouldering the brunt of domestic responsibilities, the mental load, the emotional labour. Everything that is required to keep the fridge full, the ch...ildren's homework in their schoolbags, and the the household running. The unequal division of all this invisible work in relationships is a recipe for disaster, but no one has offered a real solution to this dilemma, until now. Eve Rodsky was tired of always being the one who has to remember to buy loo roll, or to book the family's dentist appointments, or to send the thank you cards - all while working full time. So Eve decided to do what she does every day as an organisational psychologist: Organise. She conducted original research with more than 500 couples to figure out WHAT the invisible work in a family actually is and HOW to get it done effectively and all in a way that makes relationships even stronger. FAIR PLAY identifies the 100 main tasks in any relationship, and then divides those tasks fairly (not necessarily equally) so that both parties contribute their fair share. If we don't learn to rebalance our home life and reclaim some time to develop the skills and passions that keep us unique, then we risk losing our right to be interesting, not just to our partner, but to ourselves. Getting this right isn't a luxury, it's a necessity for a happy, lasting partnership. Part how-to guide for couples, part modern relationship manifesto, Fair Play offers an innovative system with a completely original lexicon to discuss how relationships actually work ... and how we can make them work better.
