eBully - Fiction/Social Issues
4.4 stars over 15 reviews
Thirteen-year-old Scott Halifax has a juvy rap sheet that could peel wallpaper but he's just what Lukather needs -- a street-smart, tech-savvy kid with no roots. Lukather makes a deal with Halifax: go undercover as a student at Lakeland and nail the bully in return for a ticket out of the County Detention Center and a clean slate.
Once he's in at Lakeland Halifax teams up with Tom Seidel, the nerdy kid that everyone loves to hate. It isn't long before Scott, Tom and Carly’s best friend Lisa are working together. It takes a lot of hard work, some sly computer sleuthing and a little dumb luck before they expose the bully. And it’s the last person that anybody would have suspected.

Description: What if your Prince Charming turns out to be the Prince of Darkness?
It's the Eighties. Everyone in London's guzzling champagne by the bucketload, snorting mountains of coke and shagging like there's no tomorrow. But for twenty-something Zoe Burns, the party's over... even though she daren't admit it. The bills are piling up, the hangovers are getting worse and the one night stands no longer do it for her.
So when she's offered a gig as an escort to a South American millionaire while he's on "business" in Barcelona, she thinks, "what the hell?"...
But life with Raoul is not all champagne and roses. Raoul's an unreconstructed chauvinist, a macho bully, and a voyeur. But none of these things are the problem.
The problem is, Zoe should run a mile. But she can't. Mesmerised by the seductive Raoul and the high life he's introduced her to, she finds herself falling for him.

Description: Addiction destroys lives. In The Addicted Brain, a leading neuroscientist explains how and why this happens–and presents advances in treatment and prevention. Using breathtaking brain imagery and other research, Michael Kuhar, Ph.D., shows the powerful, long-term brain changes that drugs can cause, revealing why it can be so difficult for addicts to escape their grip.
In plain English, Kuhar describes why some people are far more susceptible to addiction than others. He illuminates striking neural similarities between drugs and other pleasures potentially capable of causing abuse or addiction–including alcohol, gambling, sex, caffeine, and even Internet overuse. Finally, he outlines the 12 characteristics most often associated with successful treatment.
Authoritative and easy to understand, The Addicted Brain offers today’s most up-to-date scientific explanation of addiction–and what addicts, their families, and society can do about it.
