"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Indeed, what a gentle, thoughtful, and brave-hearted girl Charlie Franks is. And what an example she is to other tweens and teens. I don’t doubt the courage of Coco; however, her attitudes were hopelessly misguided as is the case for many teens today. Peer pressure, bullying, and constantly worrying what others think about us seem to be the norm in society these days. Once again, I thoroughly enjoyed the ‘Australianness’ (think that’s a word) of this book, the use of appropriate teenage lingo, and the gorgeous descriptions of Kangaroo Valley. This book and the previous one have been huge learning curves for me … finally, I sort of get what those young ones are saying ;-)
Although this story came from Charlie’s viewpoint, I felt the continual presence and involvement of all other characters. Brilliantly written. Adults will love this book just as much as the children will.
From the point of view of Charlie Franks, (Coco's twin sister) you see some difficult times of making new friends, jealousy and anger as there is a big change for the family and happiness and confidence when completions are won.
From riding horseback in a storm, to winning competitions, this book really takes you along. The main character, Charlie Franks, is 14 years old. Starting a new school isn't as easy as it seems. The book is intriguing, unforgettable and completely relatable for teenage girls.
The author, Cecily Anne Paterson, writes amazing books that really show the problems that girls face all over Australia. It's totally relatable and has a great action scene as she rides horseback in a storm through rivers during an emergency.
I'm this book I loved how the author gave such detail even to the little things. Especially the moral. Which for me was about having bravery and doing so much for the people you love. Charlie is so courageous and soon realises that it isn't all about her in the world. Which, in my opinion, is one of the greatest messages to be sending out to girls.
I loved, LOVED, LOVED the book!!!!!!!. Honestly, it'll be one that you'll be reading under your covers with a flashlight. IMPOSSIBLE to put down!! Please read it!!! it's inspiring, intriguing and unforgettable.
I'm looking forward to more books in this series:-).
Cheers👑 to Cecily Anne Paterson
