Although very educational 'Aaron Apple and the Rain' is an interesting story book. It introduces science and nutrition through a fun tale (which makes learning easier). It is also useful in schools (covering topics such as water) and has illustrations on every page (for the reader who struggles). So if you are looking for a book that can teach you, whilst you have fun, then Journey with Aaron down to Kaiamaville and learn. Some meteorological concepts included plus the added bonus of learning about the nutitional benefits, one can get from apples. Children just love this book (so don't let them miss out).

Can one short conversation change Rain's world forever? After the Third World War, women seized the opportunity to overcome the surviving men, creating a new nation in part of what used to be the United States ruled by the Motherhood. From that day forward, all women are raised never to question the new order of things where women have all the power and men are used and discarded like animals. Rain knows in the back of her mind that this way is wrong, but she’s been indoctrinated to believe questioning the Mothers is wrong. All of that changes one afternoon when she’s fulfilling her duties in the Insemination Ward and sees one of the men face-to-face for the first time. Their conversation is brief, but Rain’s life will be changed forever. Now that Rain is aware that the Motherhood isn’t all it appears to be, she’s drawn into a circle of women who want change and are willing to sacrifice everything to overthrow the Motherhood, free the men, and create a world where everyone is appreciated and valued, regardless of gender. The road ahead is full of danger, and with every step, new questions and possibilities are presented to Rain. Will she join the rebellion and work to set men free—or will she continue to be a part of the all-powerful Motherhood? Rain’s Rebellion is book one in a new thrilling dystopian romance series.

Growing Sideways in Twenty first Century British Culture

This volume examines changing boundaries between childhood and adulthood in British society and culture at the beginning of the twenty-first century − where these age boundaries are widely debated, policed, and contested − to investigate alternatives to conventional ideas of growing up. Building on observations, especially in children’s literature criticism, that human growth is shaped by a grand narrative that privileges adulthood, and on terminologies of non-normative growth, particularly in queer theory, this monograph develops growing sideways as a concept that queers this grand narrative by destabilising childhood and adulthood, and the boundaries between them. The concept is refined through close readings of twenty-first century British children’s literature, television series, film, and participatory events, troubling age boundaries via specific strategies in three conceptual areas: appearance, play, and space. Exploring power structures around age and gender, this monograph traces growing sideways as a distinct and important alternative discourse of human growth.

Un relato precioso y esperanzador sobre la soledad de una chica de trece años. Una historia sobre el poder redentor del amor. Una historia llena de emociones, que te hará reír y llorar. Cuando la madre de Apple regresa después de once años de ausencia, Apple se siente feliz de nuevo, y por fin puede tener respuesta a la pregunta que la ha acompañado durante tanto tiempo: ¿por qué te fuiste? Ahora tendrá a alguien que entiende de verdad qué significa ser adolescente, a diferencia de Nana, quien parece no comprenderla. Pero del mismo modo que la noche en la que su madre la abandonó, el regreso a casa de esta se acaba convirtiendo en algo agridulce, y Apple se preguntará de nuevo quién está realmente cuidando de quién. Apple se encuentra con alguien más perdido que ella y empieza a comprender cómo son las cosas en realidad. Ganadora del YA Prize y del CBI Book of the Year Award Finalista de la Carnegie Medal Finalista del Irish Book Award Seleccionada para The Guardian Children's Prize «Una novela conmovedora y realista que te enseña a aprender a amar y a asumir responsabilidades, y que nos recuerda cómo los poemas siempre dicen la verdad.» Sunday Times, Pick of the Week ENGLISH DESCRIPTION A beautiful and hopeful story about the loneliness of a thirteen-year-old girl.A story about the redemptive power of love.A story full of emotions that will make you laugh and cry. When Apple's mother returns after 11 years of absence, Apple feels whole again. She will have an answer to her burning question - why did you go? And she will have someone who understands what it means to be a teenager - unlike Nana. But just like the stormy Christmas Eve when she left, her mother's homecoming is bitter sweet, and Apple wonders who is really looking after whom. It's only when Apple meets someone more lost than she is, that she begins to see things as they really are. Like a brilliant hybrid of Cathy Cassidy and Jacqueline Wilson, Sarah Crossan entices you into her world, then tells a moving, perceptive, and beautifully crafted story which has the power to make you laugh and cry.
