            99 real children's questions answered. Everything children really want to know about sexuality and bodies-and aren't afraid to ask. This book collects questions asked by boys and girls and answers them directly: the questions are real, the answers honest and the images funny. How... much sex education do children need? As much as they ask for, say the experts. And exactly what do children want to know?

The answers are both direct and warm-hearted, giving children the information they really want to know in a form they can relate to. What is so important about the body? Why do bodies grow hair? Why do people kiss? Is it embarrassing to have sex? Why do breasts hang down? What does it feel like to be in love? Can a grandmother have children? What is a hormone? Can a child fart when it's inside a mother's body? What is sexy?

            Powerful YA fiction about a teenager coming to terms with the suicide of her sister. Tara, the main character, is a blossoming painter who loves the work of Vincent Van Gogh, and his story is used as a counterpoint to her own. It is also a novel about the power of love, and how t...he acquisition of inner peace requires forgiveness of ourselves and others. 17 year old Tara McClusky's life is hard. She shares the care of her paralysed father with her domineering, difficult mother, forced to cut down on her hours at school to help support the family with a part-time rest home job. She's very much alone, still grieving the loss of her older sister Van, who died five years before. Her only source of consolation is her obsession with art and painting in particular. Most especially she is enamoured with Vincent Van Gogh: has read all his letters and finds many parallels between the tragic story of his life and her own. Luckily she meets the intelligent, kindly Professor Max Stockhamer (Jewish refugee and philosopher) and his grandson Johannes, and their support is crucial to her ability to survive this turbulent time.
