              The social needs of public transport passengers are neglected, with a seating layout that causes social discomfort by forcing strangers into an intimate distance that is typically reserved for people with closer relations. Passengers adapt to this close yet impersonal situation b...y interacting with others, withdrawing into activities, or defending their space. Interactive strategies, such as talking and positive body language, are more successful than defensive strategies at reducing social discomfort. Much like reading a magazine in a dentist's waiting room, defensive strategies may make the time pass more quickly, but they do not reduce the underlying tension of the situation. The future success of public transport relies on addressing the delicate balance between the need for privacy and the need for social interaction. Design solutions to reduce discomfort include both more social seat layouts as well as space demarcation techniques to encourage privacy. Social interventions include the encouragement of basic social niceties, such as smiling or greeting others, something that is often ignored in this crowded setting.

              Seventeen-year-old Phoebe's life is turned upside down when she moves from the city to the country to live with her dad in this powerful and uplifting story about family breakdowns, facing truths and finding balance. I mean, Mum didn't drink that much. All of my friends' parents ...loved their champagne or whatever. Everyone drank in The Village, too. I'd only been there for about a month and there'd already been five wine and food festivals. Mum's drinking wasn't a big deal. Right? Phoebe's non-Indigenous mother, a busy event manager, and her father, an Aboriginal man and uni lecturer, have split up and she's moved to sleepy old Willunga with him and his new health-obsessed girlfriend. It's only a few kilometres from Phoebe's old friends and the city, but it feels like another world. Her new school is full of hippies, but some of the kids are cool and the local basketball team is tight, and before long Phoebe's fitting in. But as her mum becomes increasingly unreliable, Phoebe's grades begin to suffer, her place on the basketball team is under threat and her worries spiral out of control. Phoebe can't tell her friends and is worried her dad will get angry, but pretending everything is fine is breaking her heart. How can she help her mum without tearing her family apart? 'A story with grit, authenticity of voice and characters who show strength in identity and culture.' Anita Heiss, award-winning author of Bila Yarrudhanggalangdhuray 'This book will move you. It navigates the mess, chaos and complexities of life with grace.' Rebecca Lim, award-winning author of Tiger Daughter 'Honest, raw and full of heart.' Tobias Madden, author of Anything But Fine
