New Books
Chicken soup for the teenage soul’s the real deal by Jack Canfield

‘Challenges. Failing a class, getting dumped and figuring out where you fit in are all difficult high school challenges. Finding the answer is not always easy. And let’s face it, your parents may give you advice, but rarely do they really know where you’re coming from. So, if you’re looking for the real deal on issues like anorexia, dating, or helping a friend in trouble, you’ve come to the right place.’

Does my head look big in this by Randa Abdel-Fattah

‘…Amal, an Australian-Palestinian girl living in a suburb of Melbourne, makes the biggest decision of her life, to wear the hijab, the Muslim head scarf, full-time. In spite of her parents’ gentle warnings and the ostracizing that is sure to come from the other kids at her snobby prep school, Amal’s decision springs from a deep sense of faith, and she is certain – well, almost certain – that she’s ready to take this step.’
