Silent Child: From no.1 bestseller Toni Maguire comes a new true story of abuse and survival

Author: Toni Maguire Narrator: Katy Sobey Release Date: August 2020

Unlike people with carefree previous lives, I packed away my past. There are some memories labelled 'Look at', and others 'Leave well alone'... Emily Smith was held in a prison of fear for ten years. When she was four, her father left and a new man was brought into her life. He loved her, he kept telling her so, but the emotional and physical abuse she suffered at his hands were a daily nightmare. Until one day, after he crept into her bedroom, her life became unbearable. Emily found she was different in another way as her autism became more noticeable and punishments for her 'abnormal' behaviour more severe. Astonishingly, she managed to escape her home of hell, where she was abused right in front of her mother. Emily determinedly gained a university place and emerged triumphant with a new life and family in Ireland, desperate to treat her daughter, so similar to her, to a different life. Heartbreakingly true, Silent Child is a testament to Emily's strength as she sheds light on rampant abuse still happening today. Powerful and shocking, sharing her story means she finally has a voice to say: enough.

‘My name is Harriet Manners, and I am a geek.’ Books 1 – 3 in the bestselling, award-winning GEEK GIRL series. GEEK GIRL Harriet Manners knows that a cat has thirty-two muscles in each ear, a “jiffy” lasts a hundredth of a second, and the average person laughs fifteen times per day. She knows that bats always turn left when exiting a cave and that peanuts are one of the ingredients of dynamite. But she doesn’t know why nobody at school seems to like her. So when Harriet is spotted by a top model agent, she grabs the chance to reinvent herself. MODEL MISFIT Harriet Manners knows a lot of facts. She knows that Geek + Model = a whole new set of graffiti on your belongings, and that the average person eats a ton of food a year, though her pregnant stepmother is doing her best to beat this! But Harriet doesn’t know where she’s going to fit in once the new baby arrives. And with her summer plans ruined, modelling in Japan seems the perfect chance to get away.
