            Get up or you'll miss the best part of the day! You treat this place like a hotel. Can you just put that phone down for one minute?! After years of reliable performance, has something recently gone wrong with your parents? Do you find yourself stressed out, arguing about the most... ridiculous things? Do you feel like you're processing the same world with entirely different brains? Would all of you like to fix things? There are hundreds of books for parents about how to deal with their teenagers. For the first time, doctor of brains and international bestselling author, Dean Burnett has written a book FOR teenagers to understand just what on earth is going on. From why parents are obsessed with tidiness, to why they won't let you get enough sleep and generally why they don't seem to get anything, this guide covers all the major parental malfunctions. By understanding the science behind where your parents are coming from, you'll know exactly how to troubleshoot conflict when it occurs and even fix it before it does. You'll never be able to remove arguments completely. But imagine what you'd be capable of if you weren't wasting all that time and energy arguing about tidying your room.

            What is forensic science and how is it used to solve a crime? How do you know if a red stain is blood or ketchup, or whose blood it is? Can computers really recognize your face in a crowd? How do scientists decide how old bones are, and trace who they once belonged to? Explore th...e fascinating, and sometimes gory, world of forensics, where science helps crack the case. Learn why it is important to secure a crime scene, why fingerprints are critical clues, and how DNA sampling works. Find out how maggots can reveal how long someone has been dead, or how a single fabric fibre can lead to the murderer. From the scene of the crime to testing in the laboratory, you will get to know how all the clues are put together to tell a story and reveal the guilty person. Discover how methods have changed since the days of Sherlock Holmes, the latest technology in use today, and techniques of the future. Flip to the reference section to learn about pioneers in the field, see a timeline of forensic firsts, and locate museums and special websites to visit for further inspiration and exploration. The glossary gives you all the vocab you need to sound like a real CSI expert.

            Greta's story is about hope, courage and determination. You are never too young to make a difference. It's 20 August 2018, late summer in Stockholm, and it feels incredibly hot in the city. The TV news reports rising temperatures, and there have been numerous fires throughout Swe...den. Fifteen-year-old Greta Thunberg decides she can't wait any longer- politicians have to do something to save the environment. Instead of returning to school, Greta takes a placard and goes on strike in front of Sweden's parliament building. Greta's protest began the Fridays for Future - or School Strike 4 Climate - movement, which millions have now joined around the world. Greta has spoken at COP24, the UN summit on climate change, and has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. This is her story, but also that of many other girls and boys around the world willing to fight against the indifference of the powerful for a better future. For readers aged 9 to 12.
