Summary

On the shores of Lake Tanganyika lies the idyllic Serole Lodge, internationally famous for the study of chimpanzees. In the summer of 2016, it plays host to a group of travellers including academics, film stars and Hiram Sidewinder, an infamous game-hunting dentist from Tennessee, with his family. It should be a visit to paradise. But in the dark forest a bloody revolution is taking place among the chimpanzees, led by the fearsome Dump, a psychopathic murderous ape who has brutally usurped the position of alpha male. As Dump's power grows, he threatens the existence of the lodge and the lives of all within it. In the middle of a tropical storm, the confrontation reaches an inevitable and terrible climax...

    Facebook Quotes and Status Updates Volume 1 is the perfect read for lovers of quotes that are edgy, slightly "out there" and sometimes R-Rated. These are not your usual quotes! These quotes will have you laughing out loud, shaking your head or saying. "Oh, no, he (or she) didn't!" This book brims with quotes on a wide range of accessible topics. Who can't relate to quotes about love, marriage, or relationships? Since we all grow older and age, the chapter on aging is a goldmine for anyone facing a major age milestone or dreaded birthday. There is an entertaining chapter packed with alcohol and drinking quotes and a chapter filled with quotes on miscellaneous topics. For salty souls, the final chapter is relegated to R-Rated quotes. This is not your grandmother's quote book. That is, unless she drank, fell in love, aged, and cursed like a sailor!

    My Kid Is an Asshole, and So Is My Dog 
    -- a comedic look at the drama of raising a teenage girl 
    I just returned from the mall after school shopping with my soon-to-be sophomore and her friend. I now understand why fathers opt to go camping, roll around in elk urine, and shit in a hole rather than go to the mall three days before school starts. As if the crowds weren't bad enough, my girl decided to wear a flannel that hung lower than her shorts, making it appear that she was walking around naked from the waist down.  
    She was flocked by sales people, who, I am sure, were calculating their commissions in their heads.  I mean, why not? Everybody wants to help the girl who arrives pant-less.  Obviously, she needs clothes. 
    We're not home half an hour and the vodka I poured for myself is only half gone when she yells down from her room, "Mom, have you seen my push up bra? Maybe we need to go back to the mall." 
    It's the moments like these where I'm convinced raising a teen is bullshit, and I wonder if we'll ever come out on the other side even speaking to one another. Pass the vodka. 
    There aren't enough warnings in the world for raising teenage girls. Although my mom swears my daughter takes after me, so it's karma. 
    Is it karma that I've got two barking dogs? It must be. Have you ever heard a shiu-tzu bark?  I have.  Over and over.  They think they're coyotes.  I swear.  And right now, they're wrestling over some stuffed animal, which is surely about to fling open, so I can pick up little beads all over the carpet while drinking my vodka.  No wait.  They stopped.  One of them had to drag its ass across the floor. Epic. 
    It's in the little moments where I earn my parenting badges—the faded stretch marks. 
    Ruff, ruff! 
    If this is my karma for being such an asshole to my mom, maybe we can get through this too. And if she pays attention in English, instead of scouting for a prom date, she can learn to write her own book—the sequel to this: My Mom Is an Asshole, but Not My Dog.

    Under the midnight sun of Arctic Norway, Cecilie goes online looking for friends, and stumbles across Hector Herrera. They start chatting and soon realise that 'love at first word' might just be possible. But there are two big problems: Hector lives thousands of miles away in Mexico. And he's about to get married. 
     
    Cecilie's whole life has been anchored by sticking to what she knows, and her job at the cafe in the town in which she grew up. Can she really change her whole life for someone she's never met? And will Hector escape his turbulent past, not to mention his imminent marriage, and make a leap of faith to change the path he's on? 
     
    Zoe Folbigg's latest novel is a story of two people, living two very different lives, and whether they can cross a gulf, ocean, sea and fjord to give their love a chance.
