Children today want and need answers to questions about physical changes in puberty and related matters, much sooner than their parents did. They are more sexualized, growing up faster, and entering puberty earlier than ever before. Yet many parents still either avoid sexuality education or miss it completely through their own ignorance or fears. This title is the answer!

Written for children between the ages of 8 and 13 in an easy question and answer format, with delightful illustrations to add a fun element, it will double as an invaluable guide for parents so that they can answer their children's questions candidly, with knowledge, sensitivity and humour.

Soon to be a major motion picture starring Cole Sprouse (Riverdale'sJughead) and Haley Lu Richardson (The Edge of Seventeen and Recovery Road)!

In this moving story that’s perfect for fans of John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars, two teens fall in love with just one minor complication - they can’t get within a few feet of each other without risking their lives.

Can you love someone you can never touch?

Stella Grant likes to be in control - even though her totally out of control lungs have sent her in and out of the hospital most of her life. At this point, what Stella needs to control most is keeping herself away from anyone or anything that might pass along an infection and jeopardize the possibility of a lung transplant. Six feet apart. No exceptions.

The only thing Will Newman wants to be in control of is getting out of this hospital. He couldn’t care less about his treatments, or a fancy new clinical drug trial. Soon, he’ll turn eighteen and then he’ll be able to unplug all these machines and actually go see the world, not just its hospitals.

Will’s exactly what Stella needs to stay away from. If he so much as breathes on Stella she could lose her spot on the transplant list. Either one of them could die. The only way to stay alive is to stay apart. But suddenly six feet doesn’t feel like safety. It feels like punishment.

What if they could steal back just a little bit of the space their broken lungs have stolen from them? Would five feet apart really be so dangerous if it stops their hearts from breaking too?

The much anticipated new novel from international bestselling author Jennifer Niven, author of All the Bright Places.

You were my first. Not just sex, although that was part of it, but the first to look past everything else into me. Some of the names and places have been changed, but the story is true. It's all here because one day this will be the past, and I don't want to forget what I went through, what I thought, what I felt, who I was. I don't want to forget you. But most of all, I don't want to forget me.

For her last summer before college, Claudine Henry and her mother head to a remote island off the Georgia coast. There, amidst the wild beauty of the place, she meets the free spirited Jeremiah Crew. Their chemistry is immediate and irresistible, and even though they both know that whatever they have can only last the summer, maybe one summer is enough . . .

Jou liggaam verander, nuwe emosies verwar jou en jy het honderd duisend vrae wat jy nie weet hoe of vir wie om te vra nie. Jy is skielik fyngevoelig, selfbewus en sommer net moeilik... Maar hoekom? En hoekom is daardie pes van ’n meisiekind ewe skielik vir jou so oulik? As al die bogenoemde waar is, is hierdie boek vir jou. Want jy is ’n “puber” en ’n nuwe wereld gaan vir jou oop. Selfs nog voor jongmense vir die eerste keer seks en seksualiteit ondervind, wonder meisies en seuns reeds ’n geruime tyd oor al hierdie dinge. Ouers weet meestal nie hoe om sulke sensitiewe vrae te beantwoord nie en het nie noodwendig tyd om by te hou met wat in hul tienerkinders se koppe aangaan nie. Met die gevaar van ongekontroleerde bronne op die internet vandag, is dit belangrik om die regte inligting van ’n betroubare bron te verkry, en dis wat hierdie boek poog om te doen. Jan von Holleben het op by kreatiewe en prettige wyse die avontuur van grootword deur middel van foto’s daargestel, en Antje Helms gee insiggewende antwoorde op ’n direkte, maar sensitiewe, manier. Die boek bied antwoorde op allerhande vrae oor puberteit en seks wat jongmense nie noodwendig vir hul ouers wil vra nie.

What happens when an online friend becomes a real-life nightmare? Roisin hasn't made a single friend since moving from Ireland to Massachusetts. In fact, she is falling apart under constant abuse from a school bully, Zara. Zara torments Roisin in person and on social media. She makes Roisin the laughingstock of the whole school. Roisin feels utterly alone... until she bonds with Haley online. Finally there's someone who gets her. Haley is smart, strong, and shares anti-mean-girl memes that make Roisin laugh. Together, they are able to imagine what life could look like without Zara. Haley quickly becomes Roisin's lifeline. Then Zara has a painful accident, police investigate, and Roisin panics. Could her chats with Haley look incriminating? Roisin wants Haley to delete her copies of their messages, but when she tries to meet Haley in person, she can't find her anywhere. What's going on? Her best friend would never have lied to her, right? Or is Haley not who she says she is... With twists, turns, and lightning-fast pacing, this is a middle-grade thriller about bullying, revenge, and tech that young readers won't be able to put down. Praise for Friend Me: "Friend Me is a heart-racing escalation from toxic teen power play and the dangers of social media to a darkly searing near-future thriller.
