'A new literary star' The Times The instant Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller Longlisted for the 2020 Booker Prize A Times, Guardian, Sunday Times, Telegraph, Mail on Sunday, Red, Good Housekeeping and Cosmopolitan Book of the Year When Emira is apprehended at a supermarket for 'kidnapping' the white child she's actually babysitting, it sets off an explosive chain of events. Her employer Alix, a feminist blogger with the best of intentions, resolves to make things right. But Emira herself is aimless, broke and wary of Alix's desire to help.

Such a Fun Age Book Description:

»Eine extrem komische, unbequeme und unbedingt lesenswerte Geschichte über Rassismus und Klassenunterschiede.« TIME Nominiert für den Booker Prize Alix Chamberlain ist eine Frau, die bekommt, was sie will, und die ihr Geld damit verdient, anderen Frauen genau das beizubringen. Als ihrer Babysitterin Emira Kidnapping vorgeworfen wird, weil sie sich kurz vor Mitternacht mit Alix' weißer Tochter in einem Supermarkt aufhält, ist Alix schockiert und will den Vorfall wiedergutmachen. Doch Emira hat andere Sorgen: Kurz vor ihrem fünfundzwanzigsten Geburtstag hat sie immer noch keinen richtigen Job, sie ist ständig pleite und misstrauisch gegenüber Alix' Wunsch zu helfen. Je verzweifelter Alix Emira zu einem Teil ihrer Familie machen will, desto mehr verrennt sie sich. Dann geht ein Video online und stellt alles in Frage, was sie zu wissen glaubten: über sich selbst, einander, und die komplexe Dynamik von Privilegien. »Reid erkundet das weiße Gewissen in Zeiten von Black Lives Matter und erzählt vom Scheitern guter Absichten.« The New Yorker »Ein messerscharfes Debüt über Armut, Privilegien und Rassismus.« The Guardian

The Gentle Parenting Book Book Description:

Parenting trends come and go. Gentle parenting is different - it isn't a label for a precise set of rules but a method of parenting that embraces the needs of parent and child, while being mindful of current science and child psychology. It means parenting with empathy, respect, understanding - and boundaries. In The Gentle Parenting Book, Sarah Ockwell-Smith provides a trustworthy combination of what-to-expect information and gentle-parenting solutions to the most common challenges faced by parents with young children. Sarah addresses a wide variety of topics, including coping with a crying baby, introducing solid foods and creating healthy eating habits, potty training, starting nursery and school, sibling rivalry, tantrums, whining and sulking, aggressive behaviour and much more. And for those parents who have previously used a more authoritarian style of parenting, there's plenty of advice - and reassurance - on making the transition to a gentler approach. For many, gentle parenting comes as a relief because it chimes with their deepest instincts about the best way to raise their children.

Whispers from the Past Book Description:

A guy, a girl and a ghost prove true love withstands time and knows no boundaries. Shay O’Malley moved to Mimosa Key, Florida to leave her past behind and help her Gram move forward. But Shay's plans evaporate into thin air when a team of paranormal investigators shows up to try to prove her long-dead grandfather is still hanging around—much to her grandmother’s delight and to Shay's dismay. How is she supposed to make a clean start when one of the team turns out to be a ghost from her past—and feelings she thought were dead and buried materialize again? For zookeeper/ghost hunter, Colin Mackay it’s another typical day filled with lions, tigers, and ghosts. Or not, as he’s never found the proof he needs to make him a true believer. He’s been on a hundred investigations over the years, and not much shocks him, except seeing Shay O’Malley again. It doesn't take special equipment to know that electromagnetic energy still sizzles between them. They join forces to prove, once and for all, ghosts don’t exist. In order to succeed, they’ll have to put the past behind them, which is always easier said than done. With a little supernatural help they just may learn to have faith, trust and love will win.

Remember When Book Description:

Laine Tavish is an ordinary woman living an ordinary life in the small town of Angel's Gap, Maryland, as the proprietor of Remember When, an antique treasures and gift shop. At least, that's what everyone in Angel's Gap thinks. They have no idea that she used to be Elaine O'Hara, daughter of the notorious con man Big Jack O'Hara. Or that she grew up moving from place to place, one step ahead of the law. Laine's past has just caught up with her, though - in a very dramatic way. Her long-lost uncle suddenly turned up in her shop, leaving only a cryptic warning before dying in the street, run down by a car. Soon afterward, her home is ransacked. Now it's up to Laine, and a sexy stranger named Max Gannon, to find out who's chasing her, and why. The answer lies in a hidden fortune - a fortune that will change not only Laine's life but also the lives of future generations. And danger and death will surround that fortune for years to come. Until New York City Detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas gets on the case. A thrill-ride of a novel that blends present-day romance and futuristic suspense.
