Exploring his past with insight and humor, his present with humility, and his future with hope, Connor reveals his private struggles while providing heartfelt words of wisdom for young adults. His words will resonate with anyone coming of age in the digital era, but at the core this is a timeless message for people of all ages: don’t be afraid to be yourself and to go after what you truly want.

In a return to middle-grade fiction, master of perspectives Jo Knowles depicts a younger sibling struggling to maintain his everyday life when his older sister is in crisis. Noah is just trying to make it through seventh grade. The girls are confusing, the homework is boring, and even his friends are starting to bug him. Not to mention that his older sister, Emma, has been acting pretty strange, even though Noah thought she’d been doing better ever since the Thing They Don’t Talk About. The only place he really feels at peace is in art class, with a block of clay in his hands. As it becomes clear through Emma’s ever-stricter food rules and regulations that she’s not really doing better at all, the normal seventh-grade year Noah was hoping for begins to seem pretty unattainable. In an affecting and realistic novel with bright spots of humor, Jo Knowles captures the complexities of navigating middle school while feeling helpless in the face of a family crisis.

Britannia calls a meeting, to listen to her people. Caledonia, Cymru, East Midlands, North East, Northern Ireland and the South West bring the voices of their regions. The debate is passionate and opinions divided. Can there ever be a United Kingdom? In the days following the Brexit vote, a team from the National Theatre of Great Britain spoke to people nationwide, aged 9 to 97, to hear their views on the country we call home. In a series of deeply personal interviews, they heard opinions that were honest, emotional, funny, and sometimes extreme. These real testimonials are interwoven with speeches from party leaders of the time in this play by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy and director Rufus Norris. My Country opened at the National Theatre, London, in March 2017 before playing at venues around the UK.

The current situation also reflects longer-standing debates on the relationship between state, nation, and sovereignty in Latvian society and polity. By examining different aspects of these relationships, this volume aims to reveal both key turning points and continuities in Latvia's development, thereby helping to inform current debates.

"One evening, Kuna and Dametrie, two study geeks, decided to take a break from their algebra lesson and shoot indoor hoops. They crumpled pieces of notebook paper and began to shoot at a strange woven basket in the corner of Kuna’s room—a basket that Kuna had never seen before. Aft er a number of misses, Kuna connected. Suddenly a bright purple glow arose from underneath their impromptu basketball. When opened, the previously blank sheet of paper had writi ng on it in a foreign language. It looked African, possibly a language Kuna’s Cameroonian Grandmother might understand. With her help, they discovered it was the fi rst clue to a mysterious ethics code, which sent them off on a journey to uncover the next nine clues—an adventure that had promise of great intrigue and self-discovery."

A writer will do anything to avoid the act of writing, William Zinsser wrote in his classic On Writing Well. To improve as writers we have to hone our skills by putting words on the page, consistently. The 33 exercises in this book will help you do just that. In the process, you will produce a draft for your own book and decide to complete that other manuscript you have been wrestling with. A Work in Progress: Exercises in Writing started as a personal challenge that helped me win the struggle with my first book Running Shoes Are a Girl's Best Friend. Combining advice and encouragement from my favourite books on writing I committed to producing 2000 words a day for 10 consecutive days. I wrote for quantity and found the result had potential quality. This is my third book. Let's get started on yours! Praise for A Work in Progress: "Its crossover appeal alone-existing as a book about both writing and running...-enlarges its potential audience and affords the author a chance to explore her own process, a chance I feel is pretty significant. She does a great job of it, too, at times overtly and other times almost subversively... It's material I can consult linearly or, more delightfully, in single scoops, and it fits in my pocket so I can carry it to a favourite reflection spot." - Writer's Digest on A Work in Progress: Exercises in Writing

I am a Work in Progress is written to encourage readers that no matter the trials on your way stand tall and fight back. Flight is not a good option. Timing is very important and you can only discern the right time with God's help. I strongly believe in the saying that you are either part of the solution or part of the problem, endeavour to be part of the solution. Always be ready to stand for justice and fairness.
