Control. Jealousy. Isolation. Blame. Anger. Violence. The inspiring true story of a young woman who suffered a terrifyingly abusive relationship culminating in a horrific acid attack from the man who claimed to love her. Adele was just 23 years old when she was scarred for life by an acid attack arranged by her ex-boyfriend, Anthony. The attack left her partially bald, and she lost her right ear. This was Anthony´s attempt to stop her from ever being attractive to another man - a final act of control over her and the horrific end to a terrifying case of domestic abuse. The acid attack came after she had ended her relationship of several years with Anthony Riley, the man who said he couldn´t live without her. Riley was convicted in October 2015 and was sentenced to a minimum of 13 years in prison. This is Adele´s brave story, the story of one woman´s incredible fight to recover from the most appalling injuries and to decide that she would not be controlled. She would be strong. 1.

A beloved sculpture is stolen by an acid-spitting rock creature in Barcelona. A smart, brave 13-year-old girl deals with her father’s ditzy girlfriends in Seattle. A doleful sandstone gome battles wolf hounds and guard geese at Cragganbogle Castle on the Western Isles of Scotland. When Finnley and Hadley’s seventh-grade class is invited to spend a vacation in Spain, these unlikely events are drawn together into an adventure filled with more danger, weird food, snooty popular girls, underground cave cities, and evil bog witches than they could have hoped for. Can they survive the Rock Pit of Torture and Justice, attacks by a cloud of midges and dive-bombing bonxies, and the embarrassment of Hadley’s mother’s naked Druid dance under the midsummer moonlight? Only if their scruffy, rude, ill-tempered companion, Wullie, can do the impossible. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David K. McCulloch.

This audiobook teaches you how to cook with three of the greatest superfood discoveries of the 21st century:CannabisHempCannabidiol (CBD)For several years, the government cheated all of us out of enjoying the health benefits of these superfoods.They told us that the cannabis plant is an evil plant that can kill us and damage our brain cells, and that Cannabis was a health risk; 10,000 times more dangerous than cocaine and alcohol.They banned it from our streets and homes, and we were forbidden from planting it in our gardens.Thanks to medical researchers and brave members of the health community, they were able to challenge these fallacies - it turns out Cannabis in itself is not dangerous but the inhalation of smoke can affect the lungs.Eating cannabis, on the other hand, is safe and very beneficial for the human body. The Cannabis plant is filled with dozens of minerals, vitamins, terpenes, flavonoids, amino acids and proteins, antioxidants, and fatty acids, all of which are helpful for nourishing the body and for:Boosting immune system functionPrevention and treatment of cancerPrevention of inflammationImprovement of bone healthWeight management and appetite controlTreatment of insomniaBoosting mental performance and mood managementSkin health managementHealth benefits of the Cannabis plant are too numerous to mention here but you’ll find out a lot more as you go through the sections.It was also discovered that not all strains of the Cannabis plants can make you high as they don’t all have high concentrations of the psychoactive compound, THC, which is responsible for giving the highs.

The New York Times best-selling author of the Peter and the Starcatchers and Kingdom Keepers series, Ridley Pearson, brings us the riveting first tale of the Lock and Key trilogy about the origins of the rivalry between literature´s most famous enemies - Sherlock Holmes and James Moriarty - told from the perspective of James´ observant little sister, Moria. Before James grew up to be a ruthless, remorseless villain, he was a curious boy from Boston, with a penchant for trouble and an acid tongue. Thrown into a boarding school against his wishes, James winds up rooming with a most unlikely companion: a lanky British know-it-all named Sherlock Holmes (´´Lock´´ to his friends). An heirloom Bible donated by the Moriarty family more than 100 years ago has gone missing, and it doesn´t take long for the two to find themselves embroiled in the school-wide scandal. The school is on lockdown until it´s found, strange clues keep finding their way to James, and a secret society lurks behind it all. It´s a brave new reimagining of the Sherlock Holmes series as only master of suspense Ridley Pearson could envision. As Rick Riordan, author of the Percy Jackson series, says, ´´This tale will change the way you see Sherlock Holmes and leave you dying to know more´´. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nicola Barber.
