              Juno Of Taris
                 

              Juno Of Taris (EPUB ebook – Main)

              By Beale, Fleur

              What happens when life in a perfect, protected bubble unravels? The heroine of the first novel in an exciting sci-fi / fantasy series for young adult readers is about to find out. This exciting, futuristic novel with a strong heroine and a compelling storyline won Fleur Beale ...the Esther Glen Award 2009 and was shortlisted for the 2009 NZ Post Children's Book Awards. It explores the struggle of Juno, a young teen on the verge of adulthood, who is torn between her need to fit in and belong in her society, and her growing discomfort and questioning of that society's rules. Your ordinary teen? Not quite! Because Juno lives - in the not-too-distant future - on Taris, a bubble-covered island in the Pacific, to which a select few hundred people were evacuated when Earth's inhabitants took everything just a bit too far and began to self-destruct. On Taris there are many rules governing appearance, behaviour, even procreation ... but all are for the good of the community, to ensure the survival of humankind. Or are they? As Taris' protected environment begins to break down and Juno's questioning nature takes hold, she uncovers some startling inconsistencies in many of the 'factual' histories she has grown up with. She also begins to develop some quite startling, almost supernatural, abilities. As Juno faces increasing danger, she finds allies in the most surprising places. Juno of Taris examines many themes: peer pressure, environmental breakdown, the fictionalization of history, societal control and challenging authority. But perhaps most important of all, it is a thoroughly good read from one of New Zealand's very best writers for young adults.

However, he's not the only good driver after the prize. Craig is his main rival, and Craig's father is wealthy and prepared to spend whatever it takes to help his son win the Challenge. Archie doesn't let Craig worry him, but Silver Adams is another matter. She's come back into karting after a two year break and her ambition seems to be to drive her kart like a weapon of destruction to others on the track, Archie in particular. His life isn't the smoothest at home either, thanks to Dad's new girlfriend Erica who, in Archie's opinion, is ridiculously overprotective of her seven year old son Felix. Karting is the last thing in the world she intends for him to do. However, shy, reserved Felix is fascinated by the whole world of karts. Archie and Craig dice all year u first Archie wins at a Challenge meeting, but next time Craig does. Archie must win the sixth and last meeting if he's to win the series. All is going well until disaster strikes in the pre-final when he's pushed off the track and breaks an axle. That's it. Craig will go to Europe but he won't. Then Silver comes to the rescue unexpectedly and Archie is able to drive the race of his life.

              The Transformation of Minna Hargreaves (EPUB ebook – Main)

              By Beale, Fleur

              Can you put your broken-apart family back together again? Powerful YA novel by an award-winning author. Minna Hargreaves is a typical fourteen-year-old. She's got lots of friends, and her boyfriend is the school hunk. She's being encouraged to 'take the relationship to the nex...t stage' by her friend Lizzie. Home is pretty much a non-event. Her mother seems distracted, her father breezes in and out but isn't really present, her brother is a stoner. Her life is turned upside down when Dad announces that he wants them to live on an off-shore island for a year and work to make it into a conservation island. Minna is horrified at the idea, as is her mother. All the more so when they discover that the whole venture is to be made into a reality TV series. To her utter dismay, Minna finds herself on an island, with only her family for company. There's no phone or email contact with the outside world. The helicopter ride to the island has made Mum sick and she doesn't seem to be recovering. Minna has to cope with new family dynamics, come to terms with the fact that her parents' marriage is doomed, and has to learn domestic arts that don't rate very highly on her excitement meter. By the end, although Minna no longer has two parents who are married, she has found her father, is able to appreciate her mother's strength, and is strong enough now to chart her own course.

              Sins of the Father: The Long Shadow of a Religious Cult
                 

              Sins of the Father: The Long Shadow of a Religious Cult (EPUB ebook – Main)

              By Beale, Fleur

              The disturbing story of the ruthless exercise of power in a New Zealand religious cult. Charismatic, driven and self-righteous, Neville Cooper set up his own brand of Christian utopia on earth: a reclusive community on the West Coast of New Zealand. For the 400 inhabitants of ...Gloriavale, his word is law - despite his 1995 conviction for sexual abuse. His son Phil Cooper, as headstrong as his father, had to escape. But Phil's wife Sandy was bound to the will of Neville and his brand of eternal salvation. And so began the monumental tug-of-war between father and son: a son who wanted to give his children a chance in the world. This is a true story of power and control, of abductions and night raids, of hearts broken and those trying to mend. It's also the story of the long shadow cast by the unyielding vision of one man, and the hope and resolve of one family to restore its shattered past.
