Amy And Blake from the Author: Chas Newkey-Burden. Fans of Amy Winehouse find her wild romance with Blake Fielder-Civil absolutely gripping. It was a dramatic relationship from the start: the turbulent musical genius met the hedonistic likely lad in a north London boozer and together they have had a rollercoaster ride. But when Blake ended up in prison it was all over—or so we thought. The story of Amy and Blake has been dominated by lurid stories of bust-ups, drugs, and drama. Their worried parents feared daily that their children would die, even after they married in Florida. Every step of their relationship has been lived out in the unmerciful glare of the media, and yet the couple seemed as unable to be without one another as much as they struggled to stay together. Following Blake's sentencing to a term in prison, Amy appeared ever more lost, often interrupting chaotic live performances with heartfelt pleas for her other half—and yet, on his release, the pair divorced. This is the inside story of their rocky relationship.

Letting Blake Go from the Author: Georgette Civil. The destructive relationship between Blake Fielder-Civil and Amy Winehouse consistently made headlines around the world but no one knows the truth of what really happened between the couple better than Blake’s mother, Georgette. In this powerful new book, she reveals the truth of the events leading up to the award-winning, soul singer’s untimely death and the impact it had on her son and family. The drug and drink fuelled lifestyle of Amy and Blake was well documented by the world’s media and it seemed that their volatile and precarious relationship could only ever end in tragedy. When the unthinkable happened and his ex-wife died from alcohol poisoning in July 2011 Blake was publically vilified and held accountable by the press, even though the couple had by then been living separate lives for some time. He has continued to battle his personal demons ever since. Letting Blake Go is a moving account of a mother’s desperation as her son journeys towards self-destruction and she has to face the day when she must finally let him go for good.

Amy 27 from the Author: Howard Sounes. The death of Amy Winehouse at the age of 27 was a tragedy. She was one of the brightest music stars in years -a brilliant, original song writer with a mighty voice and great personal charm. Amy was loveable, but troubled. She was as notorious for her messy personal life, drug addiction and alcoholism, as she was celebrated for her songs, and her death in 2011, while shocking, was not unexpected. Amy was also the latest in a series of iconic music stars who died at the same young age; starting with Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones whose death in 1969 was followed by Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin in 1970, Jim Morrison in 1971, and Kurt Cobain in 1994. All were gifted. All were dissipated. All were 27. The 27 Club was first used as a collective term for these lost souls after a comment by Kurt Cobain's mother. 'He's gone and joined that stupid club,' she said after Kurt shot himself. 'I told him not to ...' In this ground-breaking book, Howard Sounes delivers a detailed and insightful study of Amy Winehouse's life, and sets that life in the context of the 27 Club. That six big music stars died at 27 -- along with 44 less well-known names -- is on one level a coincidence. But behind this coincidence Sounes reveals is a disturbing common narrative that explains how these artists met their fate, and casts new light on Amy's death in particular.

When Things Seem Odd from the Author: Michael Joseph Legare. As you will discover by reading this book, the term "stranger danger" is not only misleading to children, it actually does more harm than good. By the constant reminder that a child encounters by media, adults and television programs about never talking to strangers, children are often left confused and powerless of how to deal with the many strangers they come across on a day to day bases. Secondly, this book aims to teach children to become aware of their instincts (feelings of uneasiness, suspicion or otherwise their apprehension) when it is appropriate and important to do so and when it comes to people and situations they encounter as they go about their lives. Not just people of whom they do not know (strangers), but also of people of whom they may already know. Finally, this book is in two parts: The first part are the three short stories of Polly, a fictional character, that describes in detail certain dilemmas she encounters when she becomes lost, first at a grocery store, next at the fair and then in the third story, the close encounter she experiences of nearly being abducted by a stranger. The stories go into detail about the positive aspects that Polly took each time to protect herself in each case scenario. The encounters are based on a realistic chain of circumstances. The second part of this book is aimed towards parents to look at self-protection strategies suggested by some of the world's most prestigious experts on the subject of child safety and the criminal mind.

Loving Amy from the Author: Janis Winehouse. Arguably the most gifted artist of her generation, Amy Winehouse died tragically young, aged just 27. With a worldwide fanbase and millions of record sales to her name, she should have had the world at her feet. Instead, in the years prior to her passing, she battled with addictions and was often the subject of lurid tabloid headlines. But who was the real Amy? Amy's mother, Janis, knew her in a way that no-one else did. In this warm, poignant and, at times, heartbreaking memoir, she reveals the full story of the daughter she loved. As the world watched the rise of a superstar, then the freefall of an addict to her untimely death, Janis simply saw her Amy, the girl she'd given birth to in 1983; the girl she'd raised and stood by despite her unruly behaviour; the girl whose body she was forced to identify two days after her death - and the girl she's grieved for every day since. Packed with exclusive material that has never been seen before, such as extracts from Amy's teenage diaries, photos and notes, Loving Amy offers a new and intimate perspective on the life and death of the phenomenon that is Amy Winehouse.
