Unable now to resist the temptation to discover more, Rosa delves into her mother's background and finds it weirdly tangled with that of the mother of her new friend, Andy. As the two of them investigate what happened when their mothers were young, they tentatively develop their own feelings for each other too.

We all need something to believe in, whether it's God, money -- or naked table tennis. But has anyone actually cracked the secret of how to live a happy life? Meet acclaimed comic bloggers Tom Fordyce and Ben Dirs, two men in search of meaning in a meaningless world of work, Facebook and microwave meals for one. It's time to become 'karma chameleons' and try some very different ways of living. What follows is a weird and wonderful year sampling life as silent monks in the far north of Scotland, and as witches in an East End coven; weeks spent living solely on the Internet as avatars, and entirely in the real world, as naked as the day they were born. And along the way, Tom and Ben encounter a whole host of odd, hilarious, charming people, all fellow travellers on a quest to find the secret of happiness . . . From the authors of We Could Be Heroes, longlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year

"...covers not only oracles from various cultural traditions--from I Ching and Mah Jongg to tarot, runes, cartouche, scrying, and more--but it also speaks of angelic messages, psychic abilities, and dreams, to name a few. Brightly illustrated, and...laid out in two-to-four page spreads, it is...an introductory work, yet fairly complete for that purpose."--The New Times.
