            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

            'To be a good leader you first have to be a good follower, but to be a great leader you have to remember that being a good follower wasn't easy.' Imagine having access to the planning, training and motivational secrets of Australia's most elite military operators; then imagine be...ing able to adapt what they know to your own everyday life. This is what Bram Connolly gives us in this surprising and clear-headed manual for personal leadership, resilience and success. Through the tedium of training as a raw recruit and in the pitch of battle during the war in Afghanistan, Bram Connolly reminds us among other things that it's okay to be bored, that laziness can quickly become an habit, that there are advantages in being scared and that it is okay to let go. Autobiographical, honest, and self-deprecating, The Commando Way offers powerful lessons that can be used in all aspects of life.

            There's this weird gap in life that's fuelled by cheap tacos and even cheaper tequila - also known as our twenties. It's a specific limbo of being suspended between being a teenager and a Proper Adult, and though it's wildly confusing, often lonely, sometimes embarrassing and fre...quently daunting, there's also a whole lot of magic to be found in the chaos. It's a time when we're finding our own voices, cementing our relationships and starting to fulfil our big ambitions (or simply just working out what they are). Michelle Andrews and Zara McDonald, creators of the award-winning pop culture podcast Shameless, are two of the many twentysomething women trying to make sense of it all. They definitely don't have all the answers but they know that mapping out our place in the world is a little bit easier when we do it together. Brimming with wit and unflinching honesty, here are their stories and personal puzzles about life as twentysomethings- from heartbreak and mental health challenges to overcoming career setbacks and letting go of fear. (Not forgetting the deeper meaning behind the state of their fridges and why it's so damn good to ghost out of a friend's party.) Join Zara and Michelle as they navigate their journeys between the women they are now and who they want to be. You just might find tiny pieces of yourself in the space between the first page and the last.

            Want to flourish in any creative industry like entertainment, marketing, advertising, PR, design, photography, the media, or the arts? Would you love to score your dream job or start a business doing something you love and be earning a great income - but you aren't sure how to ma...ke that happen? Then this is the career hack you've been waiting for. In You've Got This, two successful creative founders share their secrets for the very first time about what they've learned in over 20 years of doing business - all so that you can get ahead. Full of practical advice and easily implementable tips on everything from investing in your personal brand and managing your workload to negotiating a promotion and mastering public speaking, this refreshingly honest and indispensable book will help you reach your creative and earning potential and find career fulfilment, without it sucking the life out of you. The unfortunate reality is that so many clever graduates and smart millennial professionals are feeling burnt out, frustrated, anxious and broke - the working world is competitive and fast-paced and it can feel like it's a no-holds-barred race to the top. But thankfully there's a gentler, kinder, more satisfying alternative for the road to success. And after reading this book, it'll all be clear. Because trust us- you've got this. Part author proceeds from every book sold will be donated to two charities that support women- Fitted for Work and SISTER2Sister.

            From a millennial media maker and award-winning social critic, an accessible, straightforward, and remarkable guide that invites us beyond the old stories we've told about ourselves, and into the wonder of our dreams, hopes, and love--so we can find our truth and purpose (Glennon... Doyle, New York Times bestselling author) for a generation paralyzed by the pressures of life. Behind the glossy Instagram pictures, many people in their 20s and 30s are living frustrating lives: overwhelmed and confused, anxious and inauthentic, exhausted and afraid. They are leading lives that, unbeknownst to them, have been shaped by everyone but themselves. From social media to the workplace, the stories that they have believed have left them constantly seeking a better life but rarely ever finding it. Erica Williams Simon saw this all too well. At 27, she abruptly walked away from her career as a rising political media star to find her own truth and a truth that would help others finally build a life worth living. She rejected the lies that the world had taught her, and rewrote the ideas that have the power to shape a generation. You Deserve the Truth is a refreshingly blunt take on happiness (Publishers Weekly) and is a masterclass in how to challenge the narratives about fear, work, identity, success, love, and life. This smart and all too real guidebook for anyone striving to craft an authentic and inspired life from the ground up (Franchesca Ramsey, host of MTV's Decoded) gives you the tools you need in order to break free from the narratives holding you back from starting an exciting new phase in a beautiful life.
