              Pretty Girls is a visceral narrative of violence, personal tragedy and female resilience set against the backdrop of one of Australia's most politically charged communities, Redfern, where sinister racial tensions underpin everything. Evie is a woman in her mid-thirties who retur...ns to her hometown to meet with her dying father. In coming back to the place where she grew up she has to revisit her history of violence - the death of her mother, the suicide of her brother and the domestic violence that occurred in her home. Her father only has a short time to live - she expects to find him a changed man. But he's not. He's unrepentant and unapologetic for his actions. Evie has to reclaim her story - she's not just a pretty girl, she won't just sit down, be quiet, stay still - but getting there is more than tough, more than an ordeal - it's a mammoth display of tenacity and strength. Pretty Girls is ultimately a story of triumph. Evie rises from the ashes of a hellish past and re-writes her story. There is a part of Evie in every woman and Pretty Girls seeks to start a movement.

              The Korean Kid: A Young Australian Pilot's Baptism of Fire in the Jet Fighter Age

              The Korean Kid: A Young Australian Pilot's Baptism of Fire in the Jet Fighter Age (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              A vicious civil conflict erupted on the Korean peninsula in 1950 and sucked 24 nations into a new round of fighting. The world's two atomic superpowers - the United States and the Soviet Union - menaced each other across an arbitrary border as Korea became the proving ground for ...a new Cold War. The odds faced by Australia's young pilots were one in three, that they'd not come back. Or perhaps they'd just never be found, crash in flames into a foreign mountain and become nothing but names in a faraway cemetery. Most had no combat experience. Their planes were obsolete. Their orders were to dive upon a well-armed enemy with their bellies exposed, where one bullet to a fuel-tank meant an inescapable fireball. The Korean Kid is the story of Jim Kichenside and the Australian pilots who took to the skies in the 'forgotten war' on the Korean peninsula. Within a week of the North Korean invasion of the South on June 25, 1950, No.77 Fighter Squadron RAAF were in the air: the first United Nations air unit committed to the defence of the overrun South. Of the 340 Australians who perished in Korea, 41 were from 77 Squadron. In 1952, Jim Kichenside was the youngest pilot in 77 Squadron, at just 21 years of age. He entered the Korean theatre with just 8 hours of training on his Meteor jet. Dubbed 'The Korean Kid', Jim's is a story of youth and resilience, of luck and loss, of young men thrust into a war against impossible odds - the first war of the jet age.

              So I Hit Him is an extremely powerful memoir that will shock many people, yet is intensely inspirational. Born in a former workhouse hospital in Manchester, England with multiple disabilities and not expected to survive, Michael was placed in care almost from birth. By the time h...e was 17, he had been placed in over 30 institutions and had suffered every manner of physical, emotional and sexual abuse and neglect. His Asperger's became the key to his survival in a hostile world, enabling him to endure punishment, deprivation and emotional conflict. His rage and frustration had created a man who used violence to deal with most situations in life. Readers: be prepared to suspend judgment as you read an inspirational story. Michael's strong will to live and learn enabled him to survive not only his time in care, but also his forced migration, as a child, to Australia, and his later alcohol addiction. It also enabled him to finally succeed in his ultimate goals of getting an education and helping youth in trouble.
