I'm no good at sport ... I can't do maths ... I really struggle with exams ... Sound familiar? If you believe you can't do something, the chances are you won't try. But what if you really could get better at maths, or sport or exams? In fact, what if you could excel at anything you put your mind to? You Are Awesome can help you do just that, inspiring and empowering young readers to find the confidence to realise their potential. The first children's book from Times journalist, two-time Olympian and best-selling author Matthew Syed, it uses examples of successful people from Mozart to David Beckham to demonstrate that success really is earned rather than given, and that talent can be acquired. With hard work and determination, practice and self-belief, there's no reason why anyone can't achieve anything. Practical, insightful and positive, this is the book to help children build resilience, embrace their mistakes and grow into successful, happy adults.
Fresh from reenacting a Civil War battle, Kyle Sherman, dressed in his Union uniform, is lost in Yewville, South Carolina. Dixie Lee Smith knows such a man should be treated as the enemy--shunned, or at the very least ignored. But with no Southern gentlemen pounding down her door, Dixie finds herself wondering if maybe the state of their potential union should be addressed. And once she discovers there's competition for Kyle, this particular rebel belle stops worrying about which side won the war, determined to win the handsome Yankee for herself.
She's got a battle on her hands for sure. Because Kyle himself might not be so easy to subdue!
Paper explores what paper is, where it comes from, how it's made, what its properties are, and what it is used for.
When Karl Wilson lost his job and had trouble finding a new one he became a broken man. With his wife Jill having to become the "breadwinner" and his already shaky marriage crumbling more by the day Karl sank into a deep funk. When his wife discovered an old spell that supposedly caused people to switch their gender she thought that she would teach her despondent spouse a on by the humiliating process of forcing him to become a woman temporarily. Hopefully the shock and indignity would shame him into getting back on his feet and restoring his manhood. Of course when someone with no experience dabbles in things like magic there are bound to be unforeseen results.
When somewhat surprisingly the spell actually worked and Karl was turned into Karla, a ravishingly beautiful woman with extraordinary sex appeal, it was Jill who found herself being taught more than a few ons. "The New Roommate" is a witty and sexy look at gender roles and how much they're often taken for granted until something causes the lines to blur. It's also an unorthodox romantic tale of a couple trying to save their marriage in the most unusual way possible. The story contains explicit adult language and situations. (Approximately 30,000 words.)
