Tannadee

Tannadee

Author: Maurice Gray Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 28/02/2020

Tannadee, a picturesque village in the Scottish Highlands, finds itself suddenly forced to fight for its life when Gordon Weever, a billionaire bully, reveals plans to build an exclusive golf resort nearby. Though most of the locals oppose him, Weever pushes on, employing dirty tricks and splashing cash. He trashes a rare woodland, he annexes land. Somebody needs to stop him. But who? Step up local teacher, Chizzie Bryson with his out-of-the-box idea for the villagers to compete in a Highland Games to raise funds - with a surprising ally. Weever's own daughter rejects her father's rapacious antics, time after time attempting to remodel him into someone she can respect... and failing. The time of the Highland Games dawns, and a diverse range of local characters compete on behalf of Tannadee including a greasy wrestler, a hypochondriac miler, a suicidal hill runner, a pretty-boy hammer thrower, a hen-pecked cyclist, and a wild-boy sprinter. Can good morals and fairness win the day? And can they be the iceberg to sink Weever's titanic ego once and for all?

Okay Fine Whatever The Year I Went from Being Afraid of Everything to Only Being Afraid of Most Things

Okay Fine Whatever The Year I Went from Being Afraid of Everything to Only Being Afraid of Most Things

Author: Courtenay Hameister Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/01/2020

During the nine years Courtenay Hameister hosted NPR's Live Wire, she lived in a state of near-constant dread and anxiety and she didn't just fret about and fear her next radio show; she fretted about and feared everything. Until about a year ago, when she decided to take arms against a sea of anxieties and by opposing... maybe not end them but at least become a little more adventurous, spontaneous and comfortable in her own skin. OKAY FINE WHATEVER tells the story of Courtenay's year-long fight against her own nature, which took the form of pushing herself to try new things, things that scared her or made her uncomfortable, things that the average person might consider doing for half-a-second before deciding: nope. Things like: attending a fellatio class. She did that. She also spent an afternoon in a flotation tank, visited a sex club, got high (legally) in the middle of a workday and (perhaps scariest of all) had a session with a professional cuddler. And she came away with a lot of amusing and occasionally poignant stories about her adventures on the front lines of Mere Human Woman v. Fear. Refreshing, relateable and pee-your-pants funny, OKAY FINE WHATEVER reminds us that the tiniest amount of bravery is still bravery, and that no matter who your are, it's possible to fight complacency and grow bolder a little at a time.

For Better or For Worse The Complete Library, Vol. 4

For Better or For Worse The Complete Library, Vol. 4

Author: Lynn Johnston Format: Hardback Release Date: 14/01/2020

This volume includes the story that earned Lynn Johnston a Pulitzer Prize nomination. The '90s start with a bang for the Pattersons when Elly finds out she is pregnant! Follow April Patterson as she grows from a toddler to a three-year-old, all in this single volume-but that isn't all the excitement in the house, especially when there is a teenager around. Michael gets his first summer job, a steady girlfriend, and a driver's license-if he passes the test. Adolescence is just as challenging for Elizabeth, who navigates middle school, learns to cope with the stigma of wearing glasses, and is peer-pressured into smoking a cigarette! Meanwhile, John succumbs to his (first) mid-life crisis when he buys his first model train. The highlight of this collection, however, is Lawrence's coming out story, a tender and compassionate tale of gender identity and acceptance for which Lynn was deservedly nominated for the newspaper industry's top honor. Includes every comic strip from December 10, 1989 to April 24, 1993. Available in January 2020.
