Get Real by Mara Rockliff

Looking for an interesting read? Well look no further than Get Real: What Kind of World are we Buying by children's and teenage author Mara Rockliff. A comprehensive and interesting look into the spending habits and money trail of disposable income, particularly in the teenage market. From mobile phones, fast food and fashion, the book goes a good way to explaining where products come from, what goes into making the things we consume, carbon foot prints, fair trade and recycling.

With a funky design and illustrations (printed on recycled paper and with soy based inks) this would be an ideal means of teaching young adults the responsibilities that come with spending power, and would be a handy guide for school projects.

The book is £6.99 in the UK and is available on Amazon's here, in the US and Canada.
