              Lincoln Locke's fifteen-year-old life is turned upside down when he's thrust into bachelor-pad living with his dad, after his parents' marriage breaks up, and into an exclusive new school. Crestfield Academy offers him a new set of peers - the cr me de la cr me of gifted individu...als, who also happen to be financially loaded - and a place on the swim relay team with a bunch of thugs in Speedos. Homunculus, the little voice inside Lincoln's head, doesn't make life any easier; nor does Lincoln's growing awareness of a genetic anomaly that threatens to humiliate him at every turn. On a search for answers to the big LIFE questions, he turns to the hallowed school library, where he spies Edwin Stroud's nineteenth-century memoir, My One Redeeming Affliction. The book weaves itself into Lincoln's life in ways more fascinating and alarming than he could have imagined. When he meets Bert McGill, the local junkyard hermit, Lincoln finds among the detritus of Bert's life tantalising glimpses of the enigmatic Stroud, star of Melinkoff's Astonishing Assembly of Freaks. He begins to piece together a time past, of dubious relationships and, it turns out, of redeeming afflictions. Audacious, funny and wonderfully inventive, The Origin of Me is a story of friendships, of young love, of imagination, and of celebrating differences, past and present.

              On 1 January 1915, ramifications from the First World War, raging half a world away, were felt in Broken Hill, Australia, when in a guerrilla-style military operation, four citizens were killed and seven wounded. It was the annual picnic day in Broken Hill and a thousand citizens... were dressed for fun when the only enemy attack to take place on Australian soil during World War I, took them by surprise. Nicholas Shakespeare has taken this little known piece of Australian history and turned it into a story for our time.

              In France, criticizing oneselves is a national sport, even more important than football. But there's one thing every foreigner does need to understand if they ever plan to spend some time with a French person. Or even more dangerously, marry a French person. Or, pure madness, liv...e in France with lots of French persons. French people hate it when foreigners do criticize them. Immediately this provokes a strange physical phenomenon. The heart starts pumping a little bit faster, reminiscences of the Marseillaise are heard by their gallic ears, and they reach mentally for the sword. For years now, French women have become a target for all sorts of representations. In fact, the number of books written about French women is becoming a publishing market in itself. No year goes by without a new book about them. And yet, in spite of her reserves in differentiating French women from other women, Marie Le Moel found some aspects can't be so easily dismissed. Of course, women, and men, all around the world, share similarities. And yet, they remain a product of their environment. French environment, culture and rich history, has produced a certain type of men and women. It has produced, too, a certain type of relationship between the two genders, where seduction and games play, still now, an important part. And in order to better fight the stereotypes, one has to try to put the finger on what constitutes a modern French woman, and why she has become, for many, an example.

              Women and Leadership presents a lively and readable analysis of how gender impacts the access of women to positions of political leadership, the perceptions of them as leaders, the trajectory of their leadership and the circumstances in which it comes to an end. Analysing the les...sons learned from these women, Julia Gillard and Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala provide a road map of essential knowledge to inspire all of us. Women leaders often have biographies published but the approach taken to analysing gender is not consistent. Authors may shy away from dealing deeply with gender questions fearing a backlash if a book is seen to be whinging in tone. Women and Leadership fills that void and takes a consistent and comprehensive approach to teasing out what is different for women leaders. The same interview questions were used to examine each woman's journey in leadership and their real world experiences were tested against the authors' hypothesis of how gender impacts leadership. Resulting in an action agenda for change that will make it more likely women leaders are treated fairly and with no gender bias. Featuring- Jacinda Ardern, Hillary Clinton, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Theresa May, Michelle Bachelet, Joyce Banda, Erna Solberg, Christine Lagarde and more.

              In episode 1 of the Ray Martin fronted SBS series Look me in the eye two South Sudanese migrants now resident in Brisbane sat across from each other and looked into each other's eyes. One of them, Ayik, was once a ten-year-old boy soldier training in the junior forces of the SPLA... and like many of the young boys hating it. He regularly ran away, sometimes to refugee camps, but was found, dragged bag and brutally punished by then fourteen-year-old Anyang, the man now sitting opposite him. After a tumultuous life in Africa, Ayik brings that trauma with him to Australia and at various times gets in trouble with the law over violence, alcohol and drugs. He is misdiagnosed as schizophrenic and is wrongly medicated for years. One day at a Brisbane church he looks across and sees his childhood torturer and is filled with hate. They do not interact then, but on their next encounter, a few years later, Ayik speaks with Anyang and says if they were still in Africa he would kill him. Thankfully a number of forces (including the law and parenthood and a better psychiatrist) eventually set Ayik on the straight and narrow. He is studying and working and hopes to be an actor. He has had small roles in films in Queensland including Thor - Ragnarok! An incredibly honest book showing that recovering from torture and war is a process of lifelong learning, choices and challenges.

              From star-crossed matches to unexpected love triangles, summer on Nantucket always holds the promise of romance in this sensational novel from New York Times bestselling author Nancy Thayer. Lisa Hudson feels more alive than she has in a long time after hiring hunky carpenter Mac...k Whitney to renovate her old Nantucket home. There's no denying the spark growing between them--despite the fact that Mack is ten years her junior. But her twentysomething children, Juliet and Theo, on the island for the summer, worry that the new relationship will only lead to Lisa's heartbreak. Yet Juliet and Theo are in for tangled love stories all their own. When dreamy Cooper Hastings moves to the island to pursue a new environmental venture, Juliet feels an unwelcome attraction, her rocky romantic history pushing her to steer clear of love. Theo only has eyes for Mack's daughter, Bethany, with whom he was bound by an unspeakable tragedy in high school--but can they overcome their past? By August, when an impending storm threatens to shatter the peace of the golden island, everyone discovers what they can and cannot control. Nancy Thayer dazzles again with this new tale of a magical summer.

              THE WATCH focuses on a group of American soldiers at a military base in Kandahar and their lives in the camp. Switching between different points of views as well as the past and present, it gives an incredibly strong and real sense of what living there and waiting for action or i...naction must be like, the almost hallucinatory qualities of sleeplessness, fear, boredom, the intensity of it all. And when one day a woman arrives asking for the body of her brother back, we see the camp slide slowly into moral chaos.
