From the critically acclaimed author of THIS BOOK IS GAY, James Dawson, now writing as Juno Dawson. We all have a mind, so we all need to take care of our mental health as much as we need to take care of our physical health. And the first step is being able to talk about our mental health. Juno Dawson leads the way with this frank, factual and funny book, with added information and support from clinical psychologist Dr Olivia Hewitt. Covering topics from anxiety and depression to addiction, self-harm and personality disorders, Juno and Olivia talk clearly and supportively about a range of issues facing young people's mental health - whether fleeting or long-term - and how to manage them. With real-life stories from young people around the world and witty illustrations from Gemma Correll.
They have doll-like faces and big hair. The stick-thin model is still the usual style
on the catwalks while tabloids are obsessed with the huge bum – although ONLY
the bum can be huge; the waist must remain tiny. For guys, the idealised ...

A sweeping biography of one of the greatest and most provocative athletes of all time—“a life that needs to be understood whether you care a whit about boxing or not” (The Boston Globe). Athlete, activist, rebel, poet, legend—Muhammad Ali stood larger than life in the imagination of hundreds of millions of people around the world. A gold medalist at the 1960 Olympics, he won the heavyweight championship at age twenty-two by conquering Sonny Liston in dramatic fashion. In the weeks after the upset victory, he confirmed his membership in the Nation of Islam and told reporters he would no longer answer to his “slave name”: Cassius Clay. The political establishment stripped him of his heavyweight title when he refused induction into the United States Army during the height of the war in Vietnam. Ultimately, Ali returned to reclaim his crown, prevailing in epic fights against the likes of Joe Frazier and George Foreman. His talent and charisma—and above all, his adherence to principle—made him a cultural icon and one of the most beloved sporting figures of all time. But that is only half the tale. Muhammad Ali: His Life and Times is also the story of Ali, the man. Author Thomas Hauser got closer to Ali than any previous biographer. His work—told in Ali’s own words and those of hundreds of family members, friends, rivals, and others who interacted with “The Greatest” over the decades—reveals a deeply spiritual, complex man, whose public and private battles, including his struggle against the devastating effects of Parkinson’s disease, gave new meaning to the word courage and changed forever our conception of what makes a champion. Heralded by the New York Times as “the first definitive biography of the boxer who transcended sports as no other athlete ever has,” Muhammad Ali: His Life and Times is a must-read for anyone seeking to understand the legacy of one of the twentieth century’s most charismatic and controversial superstars. This enhanced ebook includes rare video footage, audio clips, and photos authorized by Muhammad Ali Enterprises.

This is the diary of an ordinary, insecure woman in her thirties, Jacqueline M. Pane. Like all women, Jackie knows life would be perfect if only she had a small bum, sticky-up bosoms and didn't grow a moustache once a month . . . Chart her progress as she perfects the art of feeling shitty about every little, and not so little, bit of herself. The potential for self-doubt lies in everything - and it's all her fault.
I do not fancy being the one to whom he pours out his feelings for Andy . . . or any
other man, for that matter. NB: In future maintain a cool but polite manner at all
times with Carlo, or I'll end up being the pig in the middle – how appropriate.

Writing a book is an amazing reward, and I personally found it quite therapeutic, but at first, it was blooming difficult to start writing. Getting started was hard, but I thought of it like a striptease - as in, the first sentence ought to make you feel compelled to read the next and so on, so much so that when you finish the first page, you ought to feel like nothing short of a house on fire will stop you from turning to the second page and so on. However, once I managed to start, I found it difficult to stop. I was carried away, and I kept amending and could not let go or leave the words alone. Like a roller coaster, life has many ups and downs; however, with true pain and inner strength through travelling the journey, you must remain determined to move towards the light on this roller coaster of life that never stops. So I take you through my journey of that roller-coaster life, moving from the dark with the Sloth, to the retreat with my Rock Bunny, through my soul with the Tiger, to a date and a night with a band and a bunch of flowers, even though I may be referred to as old, fat, and ugly. Then you will see my move across fear with the Hyena, my visit with the Parasite, and finally, at last, my transition towards the light with my Meerkat. Once there at the end of my journey, I reflect upon myself and my own presence and being, and then I move on to question myself. What am I? Am I the Chameleon, the Black Panther, or just your regular everyday Swan, who's a little larger than most birds?
chums, I did a duck waddle—you know, girls, where you bend over gracefully
and waddle your baps (that is, bum to those ... Come on, girls—stick with me. ... I
am not the most photogenic; in a photo, you can't hide a big nose and a big bum.

Winner of the Commonwealth Writers' Prize 2007 Winner of the Montana Medal for Fiction 2007 Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2007 Winner of the Kiriyama Writers' Prize 2008 Lloyd Jones' new novel is set mainly in a small village on Bougainville, a country torn apart by civil war. Matilda attends the school set up by Mr Watts, the only white man on the island. By his own admission he's not much of a teacher and proceeds to educate the children by reading them Great Expectations. Matilda falls in love with the novel, strongly identifying with Pip. The promise of the next chapter is what keeps her going; Pip's story protects her from the horror of what is happening around her - helicopters menacing the skies above the village and rebel raids on the ground. When the rebels visit the village searching for any remaining men to join their cause, they discover the name Pip written in the sand and instigate a search for him. When Pip can't be found the soldiers destroy the book. Mr Watts then encourages the children to retell the story from their memories. Then when the rebels invade the village, the teacher tells them a story which lasts seven nights, about a boy named Pip, and a convict . . . Also available as an eBook

Dam was convinced he was a collection of tiny organisms that were being programmed to live a chosen life. Whether that life had been chosen by him was a question he often asked his organisms. Nothing happened, they did not respond. Maybe they have a different language? he thought. As it will be noticed, these stories are not in any order. Though the collection did come chronologically from the same well, spring, they are not intended to have any logical sequence. They simply record the rambling devotions of an idiot. And as such should relay extreme caution to the reader so he or she may never step in the same shoes as Mr. Dam Diligent! On the other hand, Dams okay. He is not worried about much, and he is still alive! I think . . .
