              Identical twins only look the same ... Beautiful twin sisters Iris and Summer are startlingly alike, but beyond what the eye can see lies a darkness that sets them apart. Cynical and insecure, Iris has long been envious of open-hearted Summer's seemingly never-ending good fortune..., including her perfect husband Adam. Called to Thailand to help sail the family yacht to the Seychelles, Iris nurtures her own secret hopes for what might happen on the journey. But when she unexpectedly finds herself alone in the middle of the Indian Ocean, everything changes. Now is her chance to take what she's always wanted - the idyllic life she's always coveted. But just how far will she go to get the life she's dreamed about? And how will she make sure no one discovers the truth? Written with the chilling suspense of The Girl on the Train and Before I Go to Sleep, The Girl in the Mirror is an addictive thriller about greed, lust, secrets and deadly lies.

              The most anticipated political memoir of the year. A frank account from National MP Judith Collins of the highs and lows of a political life. From humble beginnings as the daughter of Labour-voting farming parents, Judith Collins has carved a path to almost the very top of politi...cs. The youngest daughter of older parents, Judith Collins grew up in rural Walton, Waikato on a dairy farm. At the age of 10 she entered politics, running for Class President. She won. After a successful career as a lawyer, Collins became the MP for Papakura in 2002, alongside fellow new recruit, John Key. When Key and National won office in 2008, Collins became the Minister for Police, Corrections and Veterans. Funny, forthright and fearless, Collins reveals the truth behind what it is like to survive - and thrive - as a senior female politician for two decades.

              Dawn Edelstein knows everything there is to know about dying. As a death doula, she specialises in helping her clients make peace with the end of their lives. But as she's flying home from her latest case, her plane plummets from the sky, and she is forced to confront her own mor...tality for the first time. Instead of seeing her brilliant quantum physicist husband Brian and their beautiful daughter flash before her eyes in what she assumes are her last moments, only one face comes to mind: Wyatt Neville. Miraculously surviving the crash, Dawn is compensated with a plane ticket to any place of her choosing. Suddenly, she sees two options before her: return to Boston, her family, and the life she knows, or journey back to an Egyptian archaeological site she left over a decade earlier, reconnect with Wyatt and their unresolved history, and finally finish her magnum opus on The Book of Two Ways - the first known map of the afterlife - that she was forced to abandon. As the story unfolds, Dawn's two possible fates are unspooled side by side, as are the secrets and doubts long buried alongside them. While attempting to reconcile with the path she chooses for her life, Dawn must confront the questions she's never truly answered: What does a life well-lived look like? When we leave this earth, what do we leave behind of ourselves? And who would you be, if you hadn't turned out to be the person you are right now?

              Tim Saunders is a farmer and a writer. He describes the seasons: Summer, with shearing, slaughter, crop harvest and conservation; Autumn and its floods, trading stock, drenching and dogging; Winter, the maize harvest and lambing; and Spring, with docking, pet sheep and weaning. H...e explores how a farm that has been in the same family for five generations functions, and describes the everyday lives of farmers and their enduring love of the land and the animals they work with. This is powerful and poignant writing that outlines a lifestyle often taken for granted, and it goes some way to explaining why farmers love what they do and are also conflicted by what they do.

              Miriam Lancewood's first book Woman in the Wilderness told how she and her husband, Peter, lived for six years in the wilderness of New Zealand, hunting and gathering, and roaming the mountains like nomads. A year later they left New Zealand to explore other wild places. They wal...ked 2000 km through the forests of Europe and along the coast of Turkey, mostly camping under trees and cooking by fire. They lived on the edge, embracing insecurity, and found the unexpected. Sometimes it was pure bliss, sometimes it was terrifying. But when Miriam and Peter moved on to the Australian desert, they met with disaster. Wild at Heart tells that story. It's about life and death, courage and the power of love.

              The Girl From Revolution Road is based on the author's experiences growing up in New Zealand as an immigrant from Iran. It is part memoir and part story told with humour and drama while exploring the idea of living in-between. The stories range from a childhood in war-torn Iran i...ncluding the trauma of a night spent in prison as a four-year-old to learning English in order to make friends in the suburbs of Auckland to dating in the days of Corona. It is about growing up as a young woman torn between her immigrant roots and her desire to be like everyone else. The humour is sometimes off-cut with the more sombre reminder of the racism that has always existed in this country from misguided quips ('Is Saddam Hussein your dad?') to more serious stories of harassment including an altercation at a fast food joint on the streets of Glenfield. There are reflections on the impact of world events such as 9/11 and more recent mosque attacks and how they show that more than ever, marginalised voices are needed in our cultural discourse. Gazaleh's is an important new voice, with her writing exploring ideas surrounding homeland, ethnicity and identity. Through her accessible and humorous story-telling the migrant experience is brought vividly into focus.

              Lil O'Brien accidentally outed herself to her parents at the age of 19 when they overhead her talking to a friend about liking girls. Half an hour later she found herself on the side of the road, with instructions to come back and pick up her suitcase the next day. What follows i...s a heartbreaking yet hugely funny story of a young Kiwi girl - the deputy head girl from a posh private school in Christchurch - coming to grips with her sexuality and trying to reconcile who she is against the stark disapproval from her parents. Bit by bit, Lil finds the inner strength to pull herself into an entirely new world. Along the way she gets called out for looking too straight in a gay bar, falls in lust over a knotted football shoelace, and tries to date four women at once, unsuccessfully. Lil's story is an insightful and honest look at how the hell you figure out you're gay, or bi, or whatever, and an essential read for anyone who has had to fight for who they are and what they believe in.

              Eighteen-year-old art student Susan Arkshaw arrives in London in search of her father. But before she can question crime boss Frank Thringley he's turned to dust by the prick of a silver hatpin in the hands of the outrageously attractive Merlin. Merlin is one of the youngest memb...ers of a secret society of booksellers with magical powers who police the mythic Old World wherever it impinges on the New World - in addition to running several bookshops, of course! Merlin also has a quest of his own: to find the Old World entity who arranged the murder of his mother. Their investigations attract attention from enemies of the Old and New Worlds. Soon they become involved in an even more urgent task to recover the grail that is the source of the left-handed booksellers' power, before it is used to destroy the booksellers and rouse the hordes of the mythic past. As the search for the grail becomes strangely intertwined with both their quests, they start to wonder... Is Susan's long-lost father a bookseller, or something altogether more mysterious?

              'Find out who you are, and live that life.' Late in the night, fourteen-year-old Sam Watson steps onto a quiet overpass, climbs over the rail and looks down at the road far below. At the other end of the same bridge, an old man, Vic, smokes his last cigarette. The two see each ot...her across the void. A fateful connection is made, and an unlikely friendship blooms. Slowly, we learn what led Sam and Vic to the bridge that night. Bonded by their suffering, each privately commits to the impossible task of saving the other. Honeybee is a heart-breaking, life-affirming novel that throws us headlong into a world of petty thefts, extortion plots, botched bank robberies, daring dog rescues and one spectacular drag show. At the heart of Honeybee is Sam: a solitary, resilient young person battling to navigate the world as their true self; ensnared by a loyalty to a troubled mother, scarred by the volatility of a domineering step-father, and confounded by the kindness of new alliances. Honeybee is a tender, profoundly moving novel brimming with vivid characters and luminous words. It's about two lives forever changed by a chance encounter -- one offering hope, the other redemption. It's about when to persevere, and when to be merciful, as Sam learns when to let go, and when to hold on.
