Summer's here, the days are getting longer, and June is the month when we celebrate Father's Day and Volunteers’ Week along with the summer solstice, midsummer and Wimbledon tennis tournament. This year is especially busy as we also celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. Take some time out from the busyness of June to reflect and read some of the books we offer.

You will be introduced to Rick and Maya, who are typical young people of today, finding it difficult to envision the future with hopes and dreams frustrated with relationships. They meet the young people of the Oratory, get involved in various activities, and through eye-opening experiences, are helped to grow. In the end, they return to their present-day life to start anew with the positive outlook on life learnt from Don Bosco. The central message is to have faith in someone, and to have someone who has faith in you, and the key to this is staying 'together'.
