            Fourteen is this generation's Holding the Man - a moving coming-of-age memoir about a young man's search for identity and acceptance in the most unforgiving and hostile of places: high school. This is a story about my fourteenth year of life as a gay kid at an all-boys rugby-mad ...Catholic school in regional Queensland. It was a year in which I started to discover who I was, and deeply hated what was revealed. It was a year in which I had my first crush and first devastating heartbreak. It was a year of torment, bullying and betrayal - not just at the hands of my peers, but by adults who were meant to protect me. And it was a year that almost ended tragically. I found solace in writing and my budding journalism; in a close-knit group of friends, all growing up too quickly together; and in the fierce protection of family and a mother's unconditional love. These were moments of light and hilarity that kept me going. As much as Fourteen is a chronicle of the enormous struggle and adversity I endured, and the shocking consequences of it all, it's also a tale of survival. Because I did survive. 'Teenagers should read this book, parents should read this book. Human beings, above all, should read this book.' Rick Morton bestselling author of One Hundred Years of Dirt 'I love this book ... a beautifully written account of a young man struggling with his sexuality, overcoming shocking abuse and finding his way to pride.' Peter FitzSimons, bestselling author 'Shannon is unflinching in recounting the horror, but he is also funny, empathetic and, above all, full of courage.' Bridie Jabour, author of The Way Things Should Be 'A slice of life as experienced quite recently in the lucky country .' The Hon Michael Kirby, AC CMG

            The new book from Scott Pape, the Barefoot Investor. The Barefoot Investor: The Only Money Guide You'll Ever Need is a phenomenon, sprinting through one million copies to become one of the best selling Australian books ever. Why is it so successful? It's simple, funny and practic...al. And it has changed people's lives. The eagerly anticipated follow-up, The Barefoot Investor for Families, sticks to the same script. It's aimed fairly and squarely at parents, grandparents, and basically anyone who read that book and said: 'Why the hell wasn't I taught this years ago?' Scott lays out ten money milestones kids need to have nailed before they leave home, and it's all structured around one family 'money meal' each week (so roughly 20 minutes). If you follow the roadmap, with tailor-made lessons for each age group, your kids will know how to do things like: Learn the life-changing value of hard work Set up a fee-free bank account (or jam jars!) Go on a Treasure Hunt around the house, and sell some of their 'stuff' second-hand Save your parents $100 on household bills Even ... Learn to cook at least two low-cost, delicious, nutritious meals from scratch. Scott's mission is to make sure your kids are financially strong so they never, ever get sucked into the traps that middle-aged bankers have devised to rob them of their money and their confidence. There are only ten things every kid needs to know about money, and you can teach them over dinner, once a week. It's that simple. Start now - it's never too early or too late.
