4. Jakob's Colours - Lindsay Hawdon

Largeprint (paperback) Our price: £19.50  - Click book title for availability and further details

Austria, 1944: Jakob, a half Roma, half Yenish, gypsy boy runs as he has been told to do. With shoes made of sack cloth, a stone clutched in one hand and a small wooden box in the other, he runs blindly, full of fear and empty of hope. He knows how to read the land, the sky. When to seek shelter, when not. He has grown up directing himself with the wind and the shadows. 'Don't be afraid, Jakob,' his father has told him, his voice weak and wavering. 'See the colours, my boy,' he has whispered. So he does. On and on, Jakob runs.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Welcome to 1984 and the town of South Wakefield. Chris Lane is 14 and he's sure that he can see the future, or at least guess what's inside of Christie Brinkley's mind. But he can't foresee the closing of Joyland, the town's only video arcade. With the arcade's passing comes a summer of teenage lust, violence, and a search for new entertainment. Never far away is Chris's younger sister, Tammy, who plays spy to the events that will change the lives of her family and town forever. Joyland is a novel about the impossibility of knowing the future. Schultz bring the Cold War home in a novel set to the digital pulse of video games and the echoes of hair metal. Joyland is illustrated throughout by graphic novelist Nate Powell, whose work has been praised by Sin City creator Frank Miller as ''observant, intimate cartooning [that] surgically cuts to the bone.''

But with a handsome helicopter pilot staying next door, Leah can't help but think she might have a few distractions of her own to deal with...

Devastated by the breakdown of her marriage, Allie flees to the one place her heart can seek comfort: Cornwall, where she hopes childhood memories of a holiday with her father will sustain her while she sorts out her plans for the future. But fate has other ideas, and she finds herself drawn into an almost obsessive friendship with a band of strange bedfellows led by Marsha, an intense, ageing hippy with a powerful life force that at once comforts, stimulates and infuriates Allie. Her growing attraction to one of the golden group's men, Adam, bewilders her as she discovers that nothing in life is what it seems. Heading back to London, her life - complications only deepen - husband wants her back, father arrives unannounced from France, loopy mother proclaims yet another marriage - and the hardest part is yet to come for them all. Finally, Allie realises that she must confront the secrets and lies of her past - and Marsha's - before she can face her own future.
