“Readers will experience all the joys, heartbreak and discoveries of the teenage years as Pippa continues her journey to adulthood . . . A rare treat” (CM: Canadian Review of Materials). After two drama-filled weeks at photography camp in Manhattan, Pippa Greene is back. Despite a super-swoony and über-romantic reunion with her boyfriend, Dylan, she can’t seem to shake the emotional aftermath of New York. As she navigates parental drama at home and her charged dynamic with Ben Baxter at school, Pippa finds that Dylan is more wrapped up in his new post-high-school life of bands, shows, and groupies than in their relationship. Will it survive? Written with the same humor and heart that made Chantel Guertin’s first two Pippa Greene novels—The Rule of Thirds and Depth of Field—instant favorites, Leading Lines offers a fresh and charming perspective on friendships, family, and first love. “Effortless, light and rewarding, this is a series that readers could grasp starting with this third book, but it’s worthwhile to get all three and get to know the bubbly, endearing, lovable Pippa from the beginning.” —The Globe and Mail (Toronto) “Sharp dialogue, fully fleshed, interesting characters, and a believable plot add up to more than typical teen chicklit.” —Quill & Quire “These novels remain relatable and sweet and are a great read for anyone looking for dynamic and honest relationships in their YA fiction.” —Read My Breath Away “A really fun YA series that combines some of my favorite things: photography and cute boys. It features a determined and relatable heroine that’s easy to root for!” —One More Page

How to make speeches that seize the moment, advance your cause and lead the way. For those who aim to be leaders, mastering the power of speechmaking -the art and craft of persuasion - is more important than ever. If you want to be heard, it's not enough to have something to say: you must know how to say it. In government, business or civil society, a leader's speech sets the tone: the wrong words can destroy a company, damage a reputation, or even start a war. But the right speech can build prosperity, drive peaceful solutions and bring people together. This book meets the difficulties of modern speechmaking head-on, taking us through the process of formulating ideas, finding the best ways to express them, and delivering an accomplished address. Using examples from history, literature and her 25- year career as a speechwriter, Lucinda Holdforth writes a compelling analysis of celebratory, rallying and explanatory speeches. She reminds us that democracies rise and fall on the quality of the debates we conduct and the subsequent decisions we make. This is not only a practical manual for crafting a powerful speech, it's a cracking read. The right words can be transformative. They can stir a heart or reimagine the world. Leading Lines will help you find those words, and lead the way. PRAISE 'A book for anyone who aspires to leadership. Holdforth draws on her formidable expertise and experience working with CEOs like me to deliver this practical guide to the creation of leadership speeches.' Geoff Dixon, CEO and Managing Director of Qantas, 2001-2008 'This book is for all those who love words and the power they have to change lives. Leading Lines will be an indispensable tool for CEOs and speechwriters of every kind, it is also, quite simply, a cracking read, attractive to anyone who likes a good story' Tegan Bennett Daylight, writer, teacher, critic 'Exhilarating, illuminating, and absolutely captivating, this book made me want to rush out and give a thousand speeches!'

As digital cameras and software packages become more advanced, seemingly by the minute, it has become easier than ever to overlook the basic elements which have always resulted in the best photographs, no matter how fancy (or primitive) the camera itself. Composition is the single most important aspect of creating great images, no matter what level of photographer you happen to be. No amount of digital wizardry can turn a badly composed image into a picture you would want to display. While many books on composition tend to overcomplicate the subject, this book breaks down everything you need to know into small, digestible chunks of information that you will actually remember once you're out and about taking pictures. Instead of plodding through long and complex pages of text, this book supplements the necessary information, such as the basics of the rule of thirds and how to get good highlights and shadows, with tons of gorgeous, full color images that actually show you what to do and how to do it, rather than just telling you what to try. You'll be amazed at the gorgeous images you'll create, whether your passion is for photographing your family, pets, travel adventures, nature, or anything else.
