              Fran Mazza is a half Italian pastry chef, with a flair for design. She is also a hard-working mother of three children, and knows the time limitations that operate in most modern households. This book offers over 100 great recipes for people who enjoy tasty food that can be cooke...d easily with readily available ingredients. Together, Fran and her husband Aaron Carson have been the masterminds behind a series of highly popular Auckland cafes, scattered around the city and suburbs - from Winona Forever and Fang in Parnell, to Major Tom in Albany and Just Like Martha in Three Kings, their trademark original artworks, vibrant fit-outs and food that is fresh, colourful and tasty have made each and every cafe a success within its community - and also become destinations in themselves for people wanting great flavour and good atmosphere. Interspersed between the recipes are the stories of each of these cafes - the idea behind them, how their names were chosen, and the communities in which they operate.

              An enormously entertaining novel, involving a novella, a fresh approach to the life and work of Edith Wharton, and the revelation of a secret love affair. Hugely acclaimed during her lifetime, writer Edith Wharton is back - with the most extraordinary opportunity. Now, in the age... of the internet, she's at the centre of a modern-day mystery about words from the past. Summoned to a room in the afterlife, Edith finds the manuscript of a modern novella inspired by her life. An accompanying letter from her one-time editor advises Edith to consider carefully whether to destroy the novella or allow its publication. Is this a chance to correct her image of haughtiness and privilege, and to reignite interest in her writing? Edith begins reading the novella - a cautionary story of online fame - to her astonished companions. But as she gradually remembers the details of her life, she becomes fearful about what the novella might reveal and is haunted by the words- The letters survive, and everything survives. 'Philippa Swan's is an original voice that is articulate, humorous and disarmingly refreshing.' - NZ Books

              Lincoln Locke's fifteen-year-old life is turned upside down when he's thrust into bachelor-pad living with his dad, after his parents' marriage breaks up, and into an exclusive new school. Crestfield Academy offers him a new set of peers - the cr me de la cr me of gifted individu...als, who also happen to be financially loaded - and a place on the swim relay team with a bunch of thugs in Speedos. Homunculus, the little voice inside Lincoln's head, doesn't make life any easier; nor does Lincoln's growing awareness of a genetic anomaly that threatens to humiliate him at every turn. On a search for answers to the big LIFE questions, he turns to the hallowed school library, where he spies Edwin Stroud's nineteenth-century memoir, My One Redeeming Affliction. The book weaves itself into Lincoln's life in ways more fascinating and alarming than he could have imagined. When he meets Bert McGill, the local junkyard hermit, Lincoln finds among the detritus of Bert's life tantalising glimpses of the enigmatic Stroud, star of Melinkoff's Astonishing Assembly of Freaks. He begins to piece together a time past, of dubious relationships and, it turns out, of redeeming afflictions. Audacious, funny and wonderfully inventive, The Origin of Me is a story of friendships, of young love, of imagination, and of celebrating differences, past and present.

              Sonny and Vince have always known each other. It took two years of juvie, a crazy mother (her), a violent father (him) and a porn stash for them to meet again. Sonny is in her last year of school and with protective parents she is forced to watch the world from her bedroom window.... She has a habit of falling hopelessly in love with just about anyone. Vince is handsome, brash, a leader in the gangs, who became a legend after he was taken away by juvenile justice two years ago. Now, Vince is back. One problem- they have not been friends since they were children. Growing up in the vertigo of 1990's Cabramatta, of households which harbour histories and parents who are difficult to love, they stumble upon each other once more. While sharing the ugly and scary details of Western Sydney in this time, Vivian Pham also illuminates the beauty, hope, possibility, kindness and love that can spring from small gestures and strong friendships.

              Set in the New York City tech world, a wry and edgy debut novel about a heist gone wrong, a secret online life exposed, and a young man's search for true connection Lucas and Margo are fed up. Margo is a brilliant programmer tired of being talked over as the company's sole black ...employee, and while Lucas is one of many Asians at the firm, he's nearly invisible as a low-paid customer service rep. Together, they decide to steal their tech start-up's user database in an attempt at revenge. The heist takes a sudden turn when Margo dies in a car accident, and Lucas is left reeling, wondering what to do with their secret--and wondering whether her death really was an accident. When Lucas hacks into Margo's computer looking for answers, he is drawn into her secret online life and realizes just how little he knew about his best friend. With a fresh voice, biting humor, and piercing observations about human nature, Kevin Nguyen brings an insider's knowledge of the tech industry to this imaginative novel. A pitch-perfect exploration of race and start-up culture, secrecy and surveillance, social media and friendship, New Waves asks: How well do we really know each other? And how do we form true intimacy and connection in a tech-obsessed world?
