Wild, Cheryl Strayed

At twenty-six, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's rapid death from cancer, her family disbanded and her marriage crumbled. With nothing to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to walk eleven-hundred miles of the west coast of America - from the Mojave Desert, through California and Oregon, and into Washington state - and to do it alone. She had no experience of long-distance hiking and the journey was nothing more than a line on a map. But it held a promise - a promise of piecing together a life that lay in ruins at her feet.

Alan Turing:The Enigma: The Book That Inspired the Film The Imitation Game,  Andrew Hodges

The official book behind the eight-time Oscar-nominated film, The Imitation Game, which stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley Alan Turing was the mathematician whose cipher-cracking transformed the Second World War. Taken on by British Intelligence in 1938, as a shy young Cambridge don, he combined brilliant logic with a flair for engineering. In 1940 his machines were breaking the Enigma-enciphered messages of Nazi Germany's air force. He then headed the penetration of the super-secure U-boat communications. But his vision went far beyond this achievement. Before the war he had invented the concept of the universal machine, and in 1945 he turned this into the first design for a digital computer. Turing's far-sighted plans for the digital era forged ahead into a vision for Artificial Intelligence. However, in 1952 his homosexuality rendered him a criminal and he was subjected to humiliating treatment. In 1954, aged 41, Alan Turing took his own life.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul , Jeff Kinney

 A family road trip is supposed to be a lot of fun . . . unless, of course, you're the Heffleys. The journey starts off full of promise, then quickly takes several wrong turns. Gas station bathrooms, crazed seagulls, a fender bender, and a runaway pig - not exactly Greg Heffley's idea of a good time. But even the worst road trip can turn into an adventure - and this is one the Heffleys won't soon forget.The Diary of Wimpy Kid series of books, by best-selling author Jeff Kinney, charts the highs and lows of our middle school hero, Greg, as he stumbles and fumbles from childhood to teenhood via school-hood. Sometimes helped by his friends and family, often not helped by himself!Readers love The Diary of a Wimpy Kid Series. The USA Today, Publishers Weekly, Wall Street Journal, and # 1 New York Times bestsellers: 'In the publishing world, Kinney is a rock star.' NPR's 'Backseat Book Club' 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid is bent on world domination.' Time magazine 'One of the most successful children's series ever published.' Washington Post 'A big hit with reluctant readers and anyone looking for a funny book.' School Library Journal

We are all Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler 

 ***Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2014***Rosemary's young, just at college, and she's decided not to tell anyone a thing about her family. So we're not going to tell you too much either: you'll have to find out for yourselves, round about page 77, what it is that makes her unhappy family unlike any other.Rosemary is now an only child, but she used to have a sister the same age as her, and an older brother. Both are now gone - vanished from her life. There's something unique about Rosemary's sister, Fern. And it was this decision, made by her parents, to give Rosemary a sister like no other, that began all of Rosemary's trouble. So now she's telling her story: full of hilarious asides and brilliantly spiky lines, it's a looping narrative that begins towards the end, and then goes back to the beginning. Twice.It's funny, clever, intimate, honest, analytical and swirling with ideas that will come back to bite you.

Amnesia  by Peter Carey 

How does a young woman from suburban Melbourne become America's public enemy number one? 

When Gaby Baillieux releases the Angel Worm into the computers of Australia's prison system, freeing hundreds of asylum seekers, she sets off a chain reaction. These prisons are run by US companies, and so the doors of some 5000 American institutions have also opened. And to some watching eyes, the secrets of both countries threaten to pour out. Was this a mistake? Or has the elusive Gaby declared cyberwar on the US, as part of the longstanding covert conflict between the two countries that has as its most outrageous act the CIA-engineered coup of 1975 - a coup so brazen we immediately forgot it as part of our Great Amnesia. Amnesia is Carey at his best: funny, sweeping, intimate, exhilarating. 

It is a novel that speaks powerfully about our history but most urgently about our present.
