Broken by selfish motives, and fed up, Erika turned her hurt into revenge. She was tired of having her heart taken for granted. Some distance a part, and focused on gaining what he had loss, David took on a different approach. He was ready to do right… Just not at the cost of sacrificing his heart. Vengeance became the reason to love again, and the price it took didn’t matters.
Bad Education, written by and starring Jack Whitehall, follows Alfie Wickers the worst teacher to ever (dis)grace the British Education System, and a bigger kid than the pupils he teaches. Abbey Grove school is populated by some of the weirdest teachers you could ever meet: Fraser the hair-brained Headmaster who longs to be down with the kids, Miss Gulliver the biology teacher with a heart of gold but perhaps a dash too much openness and honesty, Miss Mollinson the happily swinging Head of Maths who won't let her hip replacement get in the way and Deputy Headmistress Miss Pickwell who displays all the charm and sensitivity of a Third Reich Dominatrix. Alfie's class is Form K, a bunch of misfits that have been written off by the rest of the school, but Alfie can't help but see a bit of himself in them.
This is about a class of kids and their teacher's quest to get through life and get the best results with the minimum amount of effort possible. Sadly it's not an equation that always adds up. From a disastrous parents' evening to cringe-worthy sex-education ons to life threatening self-defence classes to school elections full of dirty tricks and a school trip to see a rhino pig; Bad Education is school life as you've never seen it before. Bad Education: The Teacher's Handbook is filled with hilarious content from both the first and upcoming second series from pupil's report cards and the graffiti found in the staff toilets, to survival tips for school trips and the best ways to skive while teaching a on.
John Dwyer travels through Asia's most interesting and wildest regions.

As World War I rages on Earth, Hephaestion, lauded general and soul mate of Alexander the Great—and now a citizen of Purgatory—embarks on the darkest, most challenging journey of his existence: descending into The Pit of Hell to rescue his king. Chased by Hellbeasts, hunted by Jesuits, and aided by unexpected allies, Hephaestion tests the bounds of loyalty, dedication, and even death as he faces the greatest demon of all: himself. A blend of steampunk and Dante Alighieri’s The Divine Comedy, Trampling in the Land of Woe drives through the cobblestoned streets of New Dis, soars above The Pit in airships, and then stumbles down into the terror-ridden rings themselves. Steam-powered trains, zeppelins, and ornithopters zoom by in a mash-up of literary proportions, all to answer one question: What will one man do to understand the meaning of love and truth?
Lillebror och storebror i barndomens surrealisiska land. När barnet skär sig i tummen rinner ett helt badkar med blod ur såret. När barnet ser en fluga är den så stor som en albatross. Barnets sätt att uppfatta världen är som en tavla av Salvador Dalí. En sådan tavla har Daniel Sjölin målat i sin debutroman. Handlingen i Daniel Sjölins Oron bror är ganska enkel att sammanfatta. Lillebror och storebror åker i vuxen ålder tillbaka till barndomens landskap och under resan minns lillebror, romanens berättare, en rad episoder och miljöer från när han var liten. Det som är så speciellt och suggestivt med Oron bror är Daniel Sjölins sätt att gå in i barndomen med barnets blick och teckna alla fantasier och syner med all den laddning, ångest, förvåning och nyfikenhet som barnet känner inför sin omvärld.
Det är en värld befolkad av monster och farliga odjur, vuxna där uppe i höjden som pratar i konstiga bilder; en värld av stängda dörrar och märkliga vattenfenomen som framstår som både fantastisk, surrealistisk och hotfull. Det är en värld helt utan skarv mellan fantasi och verklighet, fylld av oro. Detta är Daniel Sjölins romandebut.
