A very special Book People Debut Fiction Choice from Karen Thompson Walker, The Age of Miracles describes a world where the 24-hour day has grown longer. First it was just minutes, then it was hours and soon day had become night and night had become day. This strange event was known only as The Slowing and the book looks at the effect it had on the world through the eyes of 11-year-old Julia, who lives in suburban California with her family. How would the phenomenon change the lives of the birds in the sky, the whales in the sea and the astronauts in space? And especially how would it change the life of Julia, a girl grappling with emotional changes of her own? The enormity of Earth's rotation slowing is beyond comprehension but, as some assert, day-to-day life must go on. Julia witnesses the impact of this phenomenon on the world, the community, her family and on herself as she comes of age during this unexplained event. A book that will appeal to fans of dystopian fiction, coming of age novels and well-drawn characters, this is a story to make you think.

History Year By Year (Hardback)
Containing some striking personal photographs, Piers Dudgeon's Kate's Daughter: The Real Catherine Cookson tells the rags to riches tale of the esteemed British author. The story is told by people who knew her as she grew up and what emerges is a fresh portrait with vividly drawn detail that casts a new light on an author whose real life was almost as sensational and dramatic as the fictional worlds she created. A fresh documentary portrait, the book does not shy away from the fears that cast Catherine into the nightmare of mental breakdown and also discusses how her husband Tom Cookson may have been responsible for leading her out of this and gave her the courage to be herself and write her way into the hearts and minds of book readers across the world.
