Grow up by Ben Brooks( Book )

30 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As he careens through high school, Jasper's list of to-dos includes: get high with friends, finish his novel, alleviate his best friend's suicidal depression, seduce the hottest girl in school, dispel claims that he is the father of an unborn child, and, last but not least, expose his stepfather as a murderer. But as growing up soon teaches him, what he wants and what he gets turn out to be wildly different, and decidedly unexpected.--From back cover
Lolito : a novel by Ben Brooks( Book )

19 editions published between 2013 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fifteen-year-old Etgar Allison is spending spring break alone in an empty house, when he inadvertently learns that his girlfriend has cheated on him with another boy. Heartbroken and lonely, without parental supervision, he turns to alcohol. Unable to cope with his grief, he looks to the Internet for comfort and lands in an adult chatroom. There he meets Macy, a bored but attractive housewife; flirtatious IMs escalate into cybersex chats and soon Etgar is raiding his savings account for a romantic rendezvous in London. What could possibly go wrong? Ben Brooks's Lolito is an uncompromising look at the turbulent emotional life of teenage boys, a funny and poignant story that injects raw honesty--and even a little tenderness--into its portrait of a taboo relationship."--Provided from Amazon.com
An island of fifty by Ben Brooks( )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An Island of Fifty is a new literary bomb, resulting in the shrapnel of gold, ships, ocean, chandeliers, dreams, blood, and flame. Old and stale literature won't know what just hit. This is something new masking itself in the old and I'm so, so, so excited."--Shane Jones
Stories for boys who dare to be different : true tales of amazing boys who changed the world without killing dragons by Ben Brooks( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prince charming, dragon slayer, mischievous prankster . . . More often than not, these are the role-models boys encounter in the books they read at home and at school. As a boy, there is an assumption that you will conform to a stereotypical idea of masculinity. But what if you're the introvert kind? What if you prefer to pick up a book rather than a sword? What if you want to cry when you're feeling sad or angry? What if you like the idea of wearing a dress? There is an ongoing crisis with regards to young men and mental health, with unhelpful gender stereotypes contributing to this malaise. Stories for Boys Who Dare to Be Different offers a welcome alternative narrative. It is an extraordinary compilation of 100 stories of famous and not-so-famous men from the past to the present day, every single one of them a rule-breaker and innovator in his own way, and all going on to achieve amazing things. Entries include Frank Ocean, Salvador Dalí, Rimbaud, Beethoven, Barack Obama, Stormzy, Ai Weiwei and Jesse Owens - different sorts of heroes from all walks of life and from all over the world

Hurra by Ben Brooks( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in Spanish and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hurra por la hermana que salta desde un aparcamiento de varias plantas y lleva ropa interior sin combinar. Hurra por imaginar un entierro al que van Harry Potter, las últimas vaquitas marinas y los dos Murakamis. Hurra por dormir hasta tarde, las cervezas para desayunar y los universos paralelos donde todo es un poco mejor. Hurra por los tatuajes importantes hechos con tinta de boli y aguja de coser. Hurra por el padre que vive en una tienda de campaña y por la madre que siempre dice yo también tengo derecho a salir. Hurra por la huida a París, Berlín y Barcelona. Hurra por la única chica que te entiende
Lolito by Ben Brooks( Recording )

2 editions published in 2015 in German and Undetermined and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Es sind Ferien, Etgar, 15, ist für mehrere Tage allein zu Hause und leidet Höllenqualen, weil seine Freundin ihn betrogen hat. Um sich nicht ganz so ohnmächtig zu fühlen, ist er in Erwachsenen-Chats unterwegs und hat bald Kontakt zu einer erwachsenen Frau, der sein jugendliches Alter trotzt falscher Angaben klar sein muss. Etgar fühlt sich stark verunsichert, aber auch geschmeichelt und bestätigt durch Macys sexuelle Avancen, die erst in Cyber-, dann in realen Sex münden. Macys Ehemann entdeckt die Beziehung und erstattet Anzeige. Etgar deutet die Geschehnisse als einvernehmlichen Sex unter Erwachsenen, zu unerträglich ist die Vorstellung, Opfer geworden zu sein. Die Buchvorlage (ID-A 9/15) überzeugt mit einem gelungenen Porträt der Digital Natives, deren psychosexuelle Entwicklung unter der Bedingung allseits verfügbarer Pornografie und der Anonymität des Internets stattfindet, in mitreissend dramatisch-komischer Zuspitzung und sprachlich stimmig. Entertainer und Schauspieler Chr. Ulmen interpretiert diesen dankbaren Text höchst virtuos und sorgt für echten Hörgenuss. Vielen Bibliotheken sehr empfohlen
