THINK AGAIN! is a title that will take readers on a wild ride through history, science, the natural world and the human body in search of... the TRUTH! Conspiracy theories, popular trivia, old wives' tales, common misconceptions, misinterpretations and other regular falsehoods will be explored to find out why they are wrong, and exactly how and why they may have been adopted as fact. Unlike other information books, aimed at adults and lacking a background context and explanation, this big compendium of curriculum-led subjects will be firmly targeted at today's internet-savvy children by fully detailing the myth or error, plus its historical or scientific background, and then debunking it with a full, clear explanation of the true facts. This is all done in a thoroughly entertaining fashion, using fun typography, fast-paced text, light and fascinating side-stories, and lively, photo-montaged illustrations. Each main entry varies in length based on its importance, complexity and level of interest.

In this inspiring, unforgettable memoir, Ashley finds the courage to succeed - and in doing so, discovers the power of her own voice.
