Jou liggaam verander, nuwe emosies verwar jou en jy het honderd duisend vrae wat jy nie weet hoe of vir wie om te vra nie. Jy is skielik fyngevoelig, selfbewus en sommer net moeilik... Maar hoekom? En hoekom is daardie pes van ín meisiekind ewe skielik vir jou so oulik? As al die bogenoemde waar is, is hierdie boek vir jou. Want jy is ín ďpuberĒ en ín nuwe wereld gaan vir jou oop. Selfs nog voor jongmense vir die eerste keer seks en seksualiteit ondervind, wonder meisies en seuns reeds ín geruime tyd oor al hierdie dinge. Ouers weet meestal nie hoe om sulke sensitiewe vrae te beantwoord nie en het nie noodwendig tyd om by te hou met wat in hul tienerkinders se koppe aangaan nie. Met die gevaar van ongekontroleerde bronne op die internet vandag, is dit belangrik om die regte inligting van ín betroubare bron te verkry, en dis wat hierdie boek poog om te doen. Jan von Holleben het op by kreatiewe en prettige wyse die avontuur van grootword deur middel van fotoís daargestel, en Antje Helms gee insiggewende antwoorde op ín direkte, maar sensitiewe, manier. Die boek bied antwoorde op allerhande vrae oor puberteit en seks wat jongmense nie noodwendig vir hul ouers wil vra nie.

Jana is net drie jaar oud toe haar ma tydens ’n besoek aan Ierland spoorloos verdwyn. Op die Bolandse wynplaas Stormkloof treur KleinStorm oor sy pragtige vrou wat hom met haar fluitmusiek betower het. Jana verlang ook na haar ma. Snags roep die wind haar buitentoe, dieselfde wind wat ’n hele huis kan optel en anderkant die berge kan neersit. Maar Jana is nie bang vir die storm nie. As sy mooi na die wind luister, hoor sy die soet, hoŽ note van haar ma se fluit. Een so ’n stormnag ontmoet Jana vir !X’uri − ’n klein dogtertjie, bruin soos klip, met net ’n velletjie om haar heupe en ’n wit stringetjie krale om haar nek. !X’uri kom uit ’n gat in die grond waar die groot olienhoutboom se wortels eens was. !X’uri het gekom omdat dit tyd is om Jana se ma te soek.

Stormkind is ’n betowerende, liriese verhaal oor verlies, vergifnis en die kulturele erfenis van die Boesmans.

So, how did a slightly bonkers misfit with anorexia, bulimia and anxiety decide to solve their problems? I became a model. As you do.

Charli Howard had always wanted to be normal - but for some reason, she couldn't quite find out how to do it. As a teenager, she felt like the only one who struggled with anxiety and self-esteem issues when everyone around her seemed to fit in. So she tried to embrace standing out: by becoming a model. Believing it would make her happy and envied, she set out single-mindedly to make it - and she achieved her dream. But the reality wasn't quite as glamorous as she'd hoped. The pressure on Charli to look a certain way took an extreme toll on her body and self-image, and no matter how thin she got, she was never thin enough.

When Charli, though medically underweight, was fired by her modelling agency for being too big, she decided she'd had enough. She used her platform for good and spoke out about the insane standards of the modelling industry, whose images influence young women and girls all over the world. Now, Charli is comfortable in her skin for the first time ever, working happily as a plus sized model in New York. Here, she shares her journey, from anorexic and bulimic teenager to happy, healthy twenty-something.
