Book Description :

Bennett Robinson loves baseball, especially watching Dodgers games with his dad while munching on burgers and fries—the perfect “game food.” Baseball even helped Bennett and his dad cope with his mom's death from cancer. But there's no way Bennett could ever play baseball. Bennett is fat, the kind of fat that gives you belly button sweat stains and makes it tough to get off a sagging couch. But on one perfect, baseball-watching day, everything changes. Bennett's dad is taken away on a stretcher, and Bennett doesn't know if he will live or die. Now Bennett has to move in with know-it-all Aunt Laura, who's making it her personal mission to Get Bennett Healthy—and take over his life. It's time for Bennett to step up to the plate. Because maybe there are some things he can do…like talk to a girl, run a mile, and maybe even save his own life. Erin Fry explores the issue of obesity with heart, depth, and humor in this unforgettable debut novel.

Book Description :

In Losing It, William Ian Miller brings his inimitable wit and learning to the subject of growing old: too old to matter, of either rightly losing your confidence or wrongly maintaining it, culpably refusing to face the fact that you are losing it. The “it” in Miller’s “losing it” refers mainly to mental faculties—memory, processing speed, sensory acuity, the capacity to focus. But it includes other evidence as well—sags and flaccidities, aches and pains, failing joints and organs. What are we to make of these tell-tale signs? Does growing old gracefully mean more than simply refusing unseemly cosmetic surgeries? How do we face decline and the final drawing of the blinds? Will we know if and when we have lingered too long?Drawing on a lifetime of deep study and anxious observation, Miller enlists the wisdom of the ancients to confront these vexed questions head on. Debunking the glossy new image of old age that has accompanied the graying of the Baby Boomers, he conjures a lost world of aging rituals—complaints, taking to bed, resentments of one’s heirs, schemes for taking it with you or settling up accounts and scores—to remind us of the ongoing dilemmas of old age. Darkly intelligent and sublimely written, this exhilarating and eccentric book will raise the spirits of readers, young and old.

Losing It has been shortlisted for the PG Woodhouse Comedy Literary Prize as well as The Edinburgh First Book Award 2015. Millie was at one time quite well known for various TV and radio appearances. However, she now has no money, a best friend with a better sex life than her, a daughter in Papua New Guinea and too much weight in places she really doesn't want it. When she's asked to be the front woman for a new diet pill, she naively believes that all her troubles will be solved. She will have money, the weight will be gone, and maybe she'll get more sex. If only life was really that easy. It doesn't take her long to realize it's going to take more than a diet pill to solve her never-ending woes... Losing It is the hilarious debut from Helen Lederer, one of the UK's favourite comediennes.

Book Description :

NZ Post Children's Book Award-winning young adult novel about a young girl's journey back from anorexia to health and independence Johanna is in hospital, writing letters to her best friend, Issy: letters because for Johanna, most things that we take for granted have turned into privileges. She can only have visitors, leave her room, or even use the phone, if she starts to eat. Johanna suffers from anorexia, and her condition has reached a point where doctors, nurses, and counsellors have had to find new ways to encourage, bribe, cajole-or, as she thinks, punish her-into returning to a normal weight. As Johanna exchanges letters with Issy, and her own family, the novel is also peppered with extracts from Johanna's diary, quotations from the hospital notice boards, poems, and even bathroom graffiti. Johanna offers us wry, insightful portraits of her fellow patients in the ward. Counterbalancing her experience, Issy offers us a picture of a full family, school and social life, a life that Johanna has left behind . for a while at least. Slowly, we-and Johanna-start to unravel the history that brought her to these desperate circumstances. It's the story of a young girl struggling to understand her mother's actions, and taking on too much responsibility because of an adult's inability to cope; it's also the story of how Johanna, through witnessing the worst possible outcome of anorexia, begins to pull herself back to recovery. Sandy McKay tackles a very sober topic with a lightness of touch that neither undermines the gravity of the subject, nor skirts the most difficult truths about the condition.

Book Description :

"Wise and witty... Losing It is cringingly insightful about sex and dating and all the ways we tie ourselves into knots over both." --The New York Times Book Review A hilarious novel that Maggie Shipstead calls "charming... witty and insightful," about a woman who still has her virginity at the age of twenty-six, and the summer she's determined to lose it—and find herself. Julia Greenfield has a problem: she's twenty-six years old and she's still a virgin. Sex ought to be easy. People have it all the time! But, without meaning to, she made it through college and into adulthood with her virginity intact. Something's got to change. To re-route herself from her stalled life, Julia travels to spend the summer with her mysterious aunt Vivienne in North Carolina. It's not long, however, before she unearths a confounding secret—her 58 year old aunt is a virgin too. In the unrelenting heat of the southern summer, Julia becomes fixated on puzzling out what could have lead to Viv's appalling condition, all while trying to avoid the same fate. For readers of Rainbow Rowell and Maria Semple, and filled with offbeat characters and subtle, wry humor, Losing It is about the primal fear that you just. might. never. meet. anyone. It's about desiring something with the kind of obsessive fervor that almost guarantees you won't get it. It's about the blurry lines between sex and love, and trying to figure out which one you're going for. And it's about the decisions—and non-decisions—we make that can end up shaping a life.

Book Description :

Sarah Francis is 35, a modern, independent woman; cool, funny, cynical. She has never craved the permanence of a long-term relationship, never sought a man for something 'meaningful'. Instead, she has taken her pick, followed her moods and whims, never exposing herself to the risk of becoming emotionally involved. Until, that is, Matt Coltman enters her life. He's not just another man, another fling, another conquest. He's essential. And now the rules by which Sarah has always lived her life have fundamentally changed. What was unimportant to her before is now the very thing that drives her.So what's Matt doing messing around with that new girl who works in Sarah's office, a girl Sarah herself was keen to employ? And why did Matt need to have other women before Sarah even met him? Why couldn't he have remained chaste, untainted...pure? Why didn't he save himself for Sarah? She can never really have him, properly possess him, until he stops spoiling Sarah's paradigm of a perfect relationship. Those other women in his life, past or present, will always stand in the way. Obsession and retrospective jealousy impel Sarah into an inexorable spiral of violence and destruction. Can she stop herself before she learns the appalling truth?

His touch, his eyes, his lips. I know the feeling well. I practically lose it every time he walks into the room. But I want him for real, and that big "IT," the V-card that hangs over my head, I need him to know that he can take that from me anytime he wants. He was my one and only crush. If you saw Kyle you'd know why, but he is my brother's best friend, and I doubt he ever saw me as anything more than that dorky kid sister. If I spent as much time with the boys my own age as I did hoping he was coming over, I doubt if I'd still have my V-card. But here I am, in my last year at college and keeping that secret to myself. I still want it to be him. Him to be the one... Even though he'd long since moved away and started living the life that only a guy like Kyle can live, I still want it to be him. Even though that would be wrong in a whole bunch of new ways because he's not just my brother's best friend... Now, he's also my 'Special Assignment'.
