<b><i>Insightful, Revealing and Shocking! </i></b><br /><b><i>A glimpse of what it was truly like to live and love across the colour bar  under the repressive regime of Apartheid.</i></b><br /><br /> In 1982, Fran Walker was born in California and given up for adoption. Twenty years later, she is on a quest to find her biological parents and solve questions that have plagued her since childhood. Four women are the storytellers and each narrates her perspective of events that began in 1980, when two students fell in love in South Africa. In addition to Fran, the women are her birth mother, biological grandmother, and adoptive mother.<br /><br />1980 was a difficult time in apartheid-era South Africa for those who opposed government policies; it was extremely dangerous to act outside the law. As a bi-racial couple in a country governed by strict laws of racial segregation, Valerie and Johan’s love affair was clandestine. The consequence of their forbidden love, if discovered, would be immediate incarceration. A child from such a union was unthinkable. Discovering she is pregnant, Valerie is faced with imminent exposure. Unable to communicate with Johan, who is being closely monitored by the police, she makes decisions that will have far-reaching consequences. Her actions, as well as those of her mother, Sharon Spencer, and Grace Walker – Fran’s adoptive mother, raise the question: More than biology, what does it take to be a mother?<br /><br />Fran despairs when, amidst prejudice and recrimination, her search<i> </i>discovers a family alienated and broken. But the journey to South Africa is a coming of age for her when she falls in love with a fellow student. She gains insights which help her understand and forgive the circumstances that surrounded her birth.<br />

Surveys of teens say they wish their parents would talk to them more<br />about sex. Really! With all their access to everything sexual, why would<br />they care what you had to say? Because most of the stuff they are<br />seeing on movies, TV and porn are fantasies being sold to them as<br />truths. And when they try and emulate these fantasies in real life, they<br />are terribly disappointed and often injured by the experience.<br /><br />Written from the very-easy-to-read perspective of 19-year-old Hannah,<br />Love, Sex and No Regrets For Today’s Teens investigates how sex really<br />is for teens. It outlines how both girls and boys can understand and<br />begin to enjoy engaging with each other, rather than feeling pressured<br />to plunge headlong into unsatisfying and often harmful sexual<br />relationships. Love, Sex and No Regrets for Today’s Teens offers clear<br />directions in which girls can protect themselves, learn to speak up and<br />find out what it is they actually want or not want to do. It also offers<br />insights into boys’ expectations and feelings about sex.<br /><br />Love, Sex and No Regrets For Today’s Teens can be used as an<br />information book for parents, and as a way to start discussions about<br />sex with their teens. Additionally it can also be given to teens to read<br />when parents feel they are ready.

In Domengrad, there are rules all must live by: Fear the Gods. Worship the Magicians. Forsake the Iconoclasts.<br /><br />To Annabelle Klein, the rules laid down by the Magicians are the mere ramblings of stuffy old men. As far as she’s concerned, the historic Iconoclasts, heretics who nearly destroyed the Magicians so long ago, are nothing but myth. She has much more important matters to worry about.<br /><br />Heiress to a manor mortgaged down to its candlesticks and betrothed to her loathsome cousin, sixteen-year-old Annabelle doubts the gods could forsake her more.<br /><br />Then Annabelle is informed of her parents’ sudden and simultaneous deaths, and all of the pigment drips out of her skin and hair, leaving her colorless. Within moments, Annabelle is invisible and forgotten by all who know her. <br /><br />Living like a wraith in her own home, Annabelle discovers that to regain her color she must solve the mystery behind her parents’ murders and her strange transformation. <br /><br />Meanwhile, hundreds of the Magicians’ monks, with their all-black eyes and conjoined minds, have usurped control of Annabelle’s family manor. An Iconoclast is rumored to be about—a person who they claim goes unseen, unheard, and lost to memory, yet is the greatest threat to all of Domengrad. For the first time in a hundred years, the monks plan to unleash the dire wolves of old. <br /><br />Their only target: Annabelle.
