What do you do when you wake up in your mid-forties and realize you've been living a lie your whole life? Do you tell? Or do you keep it to yourself? Laura James found out that she was autistic as an adult, after she had forged a career for herself, married twice and raised four children. This book tracks the year of Laura's life after she receives a definitive diagnosis from her doctor, as she learns that 'different' doesn't need to mean 'less' and how there is a place for all of us, and it's never too late to find it. Laura draws on her professional and personal experiences and reflects on her life in the light of her diagnosis, which for her explains some of her differences; why, as a child, she felt happier spinning in circles than standing still and why she has always found it difficult to work in places with a lot of ambient noise. Although this is a personal story, the book has a wider focus too, exploring reasons for the lower rate of diagnosed autism in women and a wide range of topics including eating disorders and autism, marriage and motherhood. Odd Girl Out gives a timely account from a woman negotiating the autistic spectrum, from a poignant and personal perspective.

Ex-government agent Frank Compton must keep an extraordinary little girl safe from the malevolent group intelligence seeking to enslave the universe in the explosive third installment of Hugo Award–winning author Timothy Zahn’s Quadrail series Frank Compton is glad he’s finally back on his home planet of Earth—galaxy-hopping aboard the Quadrail on his continuing mission to prevent the Modhri group mind from ruling the universe is exhausting business—but hadn’t expected to find a young woman waiting for him in his New York apartment with a loaded gun in her hand. Ignoring her demands that he rescue her 10-year-old sister, the former Western Alliance Intelligence agent sends his unwelcome guest packing—only to find himself under arrest the following day for her brutal murder. Released on bail and determined to do the right thing, Compton makes tracks for the world of New Tigris. But a captive child is not all that he discovers there: Little Rebekah may also hold the key to the ultimate defeat of the Modhri. Suddenly, keeping one small girl safe is the most important—and dangerous—task Compton has ever undertaken. And with the Modhris’ mind-slave “walkers” everywhere, there may be no safe place for an “abomination” and her protector to hide.

The national bestseller Odd Girl Out exposed a hidden culture of cruelty that had always been quietly endured by American girls. As Rachel Simmons toured the country, these girls found their voices and spoke to her about their pain. They wanted to talk-and they weren't the only ones. Mothers, teachers, counselors, young professional women, even fathers, came to Rachel with heart-wrenching personal stories that could no longer be kept secret. Here, Rachel creates a safe place for girls to talk, rant, sound off, and find each other. The result is a collection of wonderful accounts of the inner lives of adolescent girls. Candid and disarming, creative and expressive, and always exceptionally self-aware, these poems, songs, confessions, and essays form a journal of American girlhood. They show us how deeply cruelty flows and how strongly these girls want to change. Odd Girl Out helped girls find their voices; Odd Girl Speaks Out helps them tell their stories. I'm always the odd girl out No one talks to me I try to be friendly and speak out But I'm invisible, see? You know, gossip is a natural thing in high school. I'm one of those girls that will do it right in front of you. I'll whisper at my friends and look at you the whole time. Then we'll all cut up laughing. You know we're talking about you. My best friend and I started being friends with this other girl. But she was fat. It was hard because she always wanted to go down the slide second and she would crush us. We didn't want to tell her she was fat, so we decided to drop her. Her mother called my mother and told her we were being mean. But we just couldn't be friends with her anymore. -from Odd Girl Speaks Out

Kehani Thompson has never belonged anywhere. She craves a story, a meaning and a place in this world but as a foster girl, left as a tiny baby sixteen years ago in the alcove of a pharmacy, she feels aimless and disconnected, shunted from one placement to the next. A new family seems just like every other temporary arrangement until Kehani reluctantly begins a friendship with Allie, a young person struggling to align her identity with her gender as she navigates her way through the transition. Odd Girl Out is a powerful look at tolerance and acceptance with threads of mystery, drama, romance and humour woven in for colour.

A quartet of witty, perceptive novels from the international bestselling author of the Cazalet Chronicles and a “compelling storyteller” (The Guardian). Best-known for the five novels that comprise her million-selling Cazalet Chronicles, which was made into a BBC television series, British novelist Elizabeth Jane Howard wrote about upper middle-class English life in the twentieth century with a “poetic eye” and “penetrating sanity” (Martin Amis). Her highly acclaimed literary fiction is “shrewd and accurate in human observation, with a fine ear for dialogue and an evident pleasure in the English language and landscape” (The Guardian). Collected here are four of her finest novels about the delight and dangers of desire. Odd Girl Out: When beautiful, wealthy, shiftless, twenty-two-year-old Arabella Dawick comes to stay one summer with Anne and Edmund Cornhill, their once-idyllic marriage becomes a domestic minefield of desires and secrets. “A unique blend of high comedy and acute psychology.” —Hilary Mantel Something in Disguise: One could characterize May’s unwise second marriage to Col. Herbert Brown-Lacy as a “death worse than fate.” The ripple effects of this unhappy union—on May herself; her own adult offspring, Oliver and Elizabeth; as well as her stepdaughter Alice, who is impulsively getting married to escape—lead to surprising and satisfying outcomes. “Astute, experienced, vulnerable, and it reads with incomparable ease.” —Kirkus Reviews Falling: In the wake of a painful divorce, sixtyish playwright Daisy Langrish buys a weekend cottage in the country. When Henry Kent shows up looking for work, Daisy hires him as a caretaker. Despite her wariness, she begins to fall for her charming employee. Slowly and with masterful skill, the aging con man seduces Daisy, drawing her into his spiraling web of lies and deception. “Troubling, subtle, and distinctive . . . Completely unputdownable.” —The Independent Getting It Right: Thirty-one-year-old virgin Gavin Lamb is a shy hairdresser in London’s West End who still lives at home with his parents. But meeting two women at a party—an oversexed married millionairess named Joan and bon vivant who goes by Lady Minerva Munday—will shake up his quest for true love. Howard wrote the screenplay for the film adaption of this delightful social comedy, featuring Helena Bonham Carter as Minerva and Lynn Redgrave as Joan. “Howard scores again—with a wry social comedy . . . Total delight.” —Kirkus Reviews
