            Linda Collins gets up on a Monday morning, dresses for work, makes coffee and goes into her daughter Victoria's bedroom. Why hasn't Vicky got up yet? It's an important day: the start of the second term of her final year at school. Today she will hear her latest exam results. T...he bedroom is empty. So begins every parent's worst nightmare. Collins, a New Zealand journalist based in Singapore, writes with startling candour about her daughter's suicide: the secrets she kept from her parents, the revelations in the personal journals she left behind, and the struggle of Collins and Malcolm McLeod, Victoria's father, to find answers in the midst of enormous grief. How, they ask themselves, could they have missed the signs? What did the counsellors at Victoria's school know about her state of mind? Did her school friends have any idea how desperate she was? And above all, why would a beautiful, talented, much loved young woman take her own life? Loss Adjustment is a wake-up call. New Zealand has the highest suicide rate for teenagers among the world's wealthy developed countries. Most of those who kill themselves are, like Victoria McLeod, aged 15 to 19. Linda Collins examines the tragedy of teenage suicide from her profoundly personal viewpoint, while Victoria's journals, uncovered after her death, give an incredibly valuable insight into the unseen stresses and anxieties suffered by many teenagers.

            Landscape architect, teacher and environmentalist Harry Turbott (1930- 2016) was at the forefront of the first wave of environmental design. From the early 1960s after returning from completing an MLA at Harvard, Harry Turbott played a key role in introducing these concepts to Ne...w Zealand. Now his enormous work and rich legacy can be truly celebrated for the first time. This 224-page hard-cover book showcases his life and prolific works and is beautifully illustrated. Environmental design and landscape architecture are growing fields in New Zealand as people become more aware of the possibilities and benefits of sustainable development. "He believed the designer's role was one of service to society to protect, restore and enhance the environment of which people were intimately and irrevocably part of " says biographer Garth Falconer.
