"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.

As soon as my daughter began reading she could not put the book down, totally engrossed in the plot and character and even neglecting her beloved phone!
So naturally I had to read this for myself and I have to say that it is an absolutely brilliant read. Lily's character drew me in straight away and transported me into the mind of a typical teenage girl with usual teenage issues and quirky friends to deal with. I really enjoyed the fact that the characters were totally believable. The plot twists kept me gripped throughout.
I am now checking out further works by this author.
‘Webs’ is a brilliant murder mystery suspense story for the young adult/teenage reader. Lily worries about her mum’s choice of dating through the web. She decides she should do some investigating of her own to protect her somewhat naïve mum. The relationship between Lily and her mum is inspiring. Their friendly banter and honest care for each other is apparent and endearing. Lily’s story is being told from her diary as we wait to find out if she survived her perilous situation brought on by her discovery of the identity of the Russian roulette murderer.
Author Lily Stuart accurately portrays the life of a 15 year old girl including life at school, with friends and family life. As mysteries appear and deepen Stuart draws us deep into the twists and turns arriving at a stunning conclusion. The writing is eloquent and lively, the scenery builds up around you and the characters are very relatable. This is a great book for the teen/young adult reader but is also an entertaining read for adults (especially those who can relate to having or being a teenager). I highly recommend it!
To add to the fascination of her YA books she actually `becomes' her main character - Lily Stuart - and that makes for a further stretch from an adult mind into the mindset of teenagers - and that works extraordinarily well. Her characters talk about intimate drives and body functions and Internet speak and why not? That is the current status of the reading audience to which this terrific story is addressed. And making Lily Stuart narrate the story gives additional sense of immediacy and credibility. The author's manner if telling side-by-side stories could throw some readers into a state of confusion. The way Stuart writes it simply makes it expansively interesting. On her website the author leads us into her concept as follows: `So hey, this is me: Lily Stuart. Good shot - huh? I'm meant to be incognito. Mum's the one looking for fame and fortune. I'm just hoping for decent grades - and Matt of course. Anyway, I'm a detective - sort of. Not paid. Dad's the one for that. He's the expert in a lot of things - catching villains, working out mysteries, sneaking off ... However, that apparently is all in the past and he's straight as straight - the biz, he reckons. Mum still has other ideas. What else can I say? Welcome to my world and the world of Ubiks - catching the killers and psychos you'd never expect to find in it.'
And author's synopsis is difficult to improve upon so it is quoted here: `Webs opens with teenager, LILY, facing a gun just before it is fired at her. The story then picks up with her attacker's account of the events leading on from this and LILY'S diary recounting events leading up to it, starting three months earlier. The two narratives gradually converge. Alongside her own life and problems - her best friend MELEZZ, and her unreliability, her arch-rival for heartthrob, MATT'S, attentions - JAS, and her bitchery, and school with its academic impossibilities and ridiculous characters, Lily's irreverent teenager's diary tells of her mother's foray into the world of internet dating and how it leads LILY to uncover a murderer. Told in turn by LILY and the anonymous murderer - her attacker from the opening scene, their combined story examines different perceptions of love, obsession and relationships, and between them they tell the story of The Russian roulette murder.' For a book of creative writing with so many twists and kinks and fascinomas it would be difficult to match WEBS. Give it whirl - Lily Stuart is going to be around a while you can bet.

First, I liked this book, but like I said, I’m being honest. I usually don’t like the writing style unless it is done well. I’m the type of reader who likes beginning, middle and end. Not jumping back and forth as if in flash backs. However in this novel, the author succeeded. I enjoyed the storyline and it kept my interest the entire time. It’s easy to track and understand whether we are in Lily's view point or that of a manipulative killer, out to make Lily his next victim. The author writes it in such a way that I'm never sure who the killer is as we get closer in the entries in Lily's diary to the day the killer wakes in a hospital and proclaiming himself to be a victim, too. The suspense is amazing.
