The Haunting of Nathaniel Wolfe

In the first supernatural mystery in the Nathaniel Wolfe series, 12-year-old Nathaniel
doesn’t believe in spirits—but he’ll soon be forced to change his mind

“This novel has an original tone and unusual setting. I applaud the author’s serious-
ness of purpose.” —Philip Pullman onJacob’s Ladder

Up there on the stage beside his father was a shadow, a shape, blurred at first but becom-
ing clearer with every passing moment until finally he was looking at the figure of a woman,
dressed in a long white robe. Her eyes were the palest blue and they were fixed directly on
him. With every fibre of his being he knew her for what she was: a ghost. Hers was a life
that had departed its earthly body but was not yet prepared to release its grip on the world
for ever. There was unfinished business she yet had to perform. But why, out of all the mil-
lions of individuals on the face of the planet had she chosen him for her haunting?

It’s seven o’clock on a cold London evening in 1862, and in a grubby theater down by the
docks, Nathaniel Wolfe watches his father—the greatest medium in London—take to the
stage. Which of the dead will speak through him tonight? What Nathaniel doesn’t know is
that his father is meddling with things he cannot control, and before the night is over Nathaniel
will find himself in the middle of a chilling mystery, one that can only be solved from be-
yond the grave.

Nathaniel Wolfe and the Bodysnatchers

Nathaniel Wolfe, who has been living quietly with his grandfather in the countryside, is
summoned back to London where he must first make a terrifying journey to the Other
Side in the second book in the series

Nathaniel and his grandfather made their way along the little path that wove erratically through
the graves. Then suddenly, the moon emerged from behind the clouds and the churchyard
was illuminated almost as brightly as by day. Three men were standing beside a newly-dug
pile of earth. Two of them were hauling up a coffin with ropes while the third held a lantern
over the grave.

‘Stop that this instant!’ Nathaniel’s grandad declared.

The three men turned and looked at him. The one who was holding the lantern put it down
on the ground. After that, everything happened in slow-motion. The body snatcher’s finger
squeezed the trigger of the pistol. There was a noise that seemed as loud as thunder to
Nathaniel and a flash of gunpowder . . .

Bodies are being dug up all over London. A solicitor’s clerk in London is being haunted by
the ghost of an old man who holds out a ring on the palm of his hand. A six-year-old girl
holds conversations with an invisible companion. What’s the connection between these events?
It’s a mystery that only Nathaniel Wolfe can solve—with a little help from his friends, of
course. Packed with atmosphere and full of powerfully drawn characters, the new Nathaniel
Wolfe story is chilling, exciting, and enormously entertaining.

A Straight Line to My Heart

Bill Condon

A funny, poignant, realistic story of Tiffany’s first love and first job, and the inevitabil-
ity of change in the first summer out of school

School is over, not just for the year, but forever. Tiff and Kayla are free, which is what they’ve
always wanted, but now summer is nearly at an end and that means life decisions. Tiff is
hoping her job at the local paper will lead to something more, but “The Shark” soon puts
her straight on what it takes to become a hard-nosed reporter like him. At home, Reggie—
the only grandad she’s ever known—has quit smoking and diagnosed himself as a cactus,
and then Kayla hits her with some big news. And into all this stumbles Davey, who plays
rugby but quotes Truman Capote, and is the first boy who has ever really wanted to know
her. Tiff is smart with words and rarely does tears, but in one short week she discovers that
words don’t always get you there; they don’t let you say all the stuff from deep in your heart.

bitter enemies, in this Romeo and Julietstory set in sheep farming country

“A wacky romp that would appeal to readers of Dav Pilkey’s Ricky Ricotta books
and Kirk Scroggs’s Wiley and Grampa’s Creature Features series.” —School Library
Journal onThe Detachable Boy: With One Loose Foot

I’ve been driving the ute and the tractor since I was 11. I get to sleep under the stars, help
lambs into the world and ride my horse whenever I want.

Avril Stanton has never been in love, until she meets Nathaniel, the boy from the farm next
door. With his crazy hair and killer smile, he’s perfect except for one detail—he’s from the
wrong side of the fence. Avril’s family and Nathaniel’s family have been feuding for two
generations and aren’t about to stop now. To follow her heart, Avril will have to stand up
to her family. Will it be a Romeo and Juliet–style tragedy or will a thunderstorm, a car ac-
cident, and a couple of conniving grandmothers be able to solve her dilemma?

The Indigo Girls

Penni Russon

Two girls, one summer, and a whole lot to learn from each other

“An impressive debut from a writer to watch.” —BooklistonUndine

Zara’s an alpha—the first letter of the Greek alphabet. She’s popular. I’m more like one of
the obscure letters in the middle that no one’s ever heard of—an omicron or something.

Zara, Tilly, and Mieke go to different schools and live in different social worlds. But for
two weeks every summer they’re the Indigo Girls—surfing, hiking, or just hanging out at
the campground or the nearby resort. This year Mieke doesn’t show up, and Zara and Tilly—
the queen bee and the geek—are left circling each other, unsure how to relate without Mieke
in the middle. Soon it becomes a summer of change and a summer of secrets; a summer for
losing themselves but finding each other.

The Not Quite
Perfect Boyfriend

9781742377650

Excerpt:

She flew for twenty-six bewildering hours to emerge into the chaos that was Rome’s Leonardo da Vinci airport at six in
the morning.

There were people everywhere: shouting, sweating, cursing and pushing their way up ragged, haphazard queues to reach
customs windows that were closed, then suddenly opened, then closed again. And when they all cleared customs, there was
more shouting, sweating and cursing when people discovered that several flights’ worth of baggage had somehow been
mixed up and was now piled at random througout the arrival hall in every available nook and cranny.

But Janey didn’t mind because Janey was in Rome. Rome! And Lou Lou’s lovely suitcase was the easiest bag to spot. And
even though her hair was frizzy and her nose was shiny, everything was all right with her world because she still looked
cool and classy in her denim sailor pants and jaunty French top and—as soon as she walked through the sliding doors into
the golden heat of a Roman morning—the most beautiful young man she had ever seen in her life was standing on the foot-
path, holding up a sign with her name on it.

If she’d been the swooning type, she would have, because the stranger held out a strong, tanned hand to her and said in a
delicously husky voice: “Buongiorno, signorina Gordon. I would know you anywhere. I am Luca Sarti.”

Angel’s Fury

Bryony Pearce

In the tradition of The Book Thiefand The Boy in the Striped
Pajamas, a tale of sleepless nights and present day haunting, giving
voice to the horrors of the Holocaust and the nature of persecution

“The writing is powerful and evocative, the characters well
developed, and the plotting complex. Among the plethora of
paranormal stories which have swamped the market recently,
this one will stand out for its freshness of approach and the
quality of its writing. A sequel, please!” —Bookbag

“Rich in paranoia, fear, and runs along at a frantic pace . . .
creepy and utterly compelling! It may well be the best YA para-
normal fantasy book I read this year.” —Teen Librarian

“You’d be forgiven for thinking this might be another of those
urban fantasies like Twilightthat feature romantic interludes
between vampires and werewolves—but don’t be deceived. This
is a fantastic piece of writing. . . . Exceptionally good.”
—Books Monthly

I’ve started to have dreams while I’m awake. I remember music I’ve
never heard. . . . I’ve got all this extra stuff in my head, but I’m for-
getting things from my own life. I feel like I’m being taken over.

One fallen angel walks the earth to bring mankind to its destruction,
turning love into hate, forgiveness into blame, and hope into despair.
Through the fires of hell he will come to torment one girl’s dreams.
Every time Cassie Farrier tries to sleep, she is plagued by visions of a
death: a little girl called Zillah. A victim of the holocaust. In desper-
ation Cassie is sent for treatment in an old manor house. There she
meets other children just like her. Including Seth, who looks so familiar.
Her dream becomes a nightmare—and then reality. This stunning debut
from a talented young author contains controversial and thoughtful
themes that teenagers can relate to, including bullying and victimiza-
tion in a contemporary and historical context. With its mix of
mythology, fantasy, and real-life terror, this is a book unlike any other.

Excerpt:

Before my back hit the headboard I slammed on the sidelight. The bulb illuminated every corner of the room. There were
no riflemen at the doorway.

I’m alive.

I grappled with the sweat-soaked sheets that were knotted around my legs and once free, I rocked back and forth, desper-
ately trying to breathe through the pain.

People say you can’t die in your dreams . . . they’re wrong.

Finally I slumped down with my hands lying limp over the phantom bullet holes that riddled my chest.

After a moment I took a shuddering breath and fumbled my book from the bedside table. I didn’t need to find my place,
I’d read it a dozen times. The important thing was how fast I could be lost in the story; how far I could be pulled out of
my own head. As I read my eyes grew heavy but I resisted the tug of sleep. Zillah was lurking in the shadows ready to draw
me into the field and I didn’t want to go back. I glanced at the clock: 1:06.

Five hours till morning.

Bad Kids

The Naughtiest Children in History

Tony Robinson

From a 13-year-old ninja to young Salem “witches”—a guided tour through the lives
of outlaw children from history, their dastardly crimes, and awful punishments

So you’ve broken a classroom window and you’re standing outside the principal’s of-
fice with sweaty palms and a serious sinking feeling in your stomach. Do you think no
one’s ever had a life as bad as you? Well, you’re wrong—this book reveals how kids in
the past have had to suffer much worse punishments than a lecture about how they’ve
let the whole school down. For instance, however angry your principal gets, it’s fairly
certain that she’s not going to put you in a pillory and nail your ears to it. All through
history, children have been getting into some serious scrapes, and they didn’t often get
off lightly. This is a guided tour to children for whom laughing; dancing on a Sunday;
killing a rabbit that wasn’t on your land; or just being in the wrong place at the wrong
time could mean a beating, beheading, or ordeal by hot water (no, it’s not a nice warm
bath with bubbles and a little plastic duck).

Sexpectations

Sex Stuff Straight Up

Craig Murray and Leissa Pitts

An upfront, matter-of-fact, and teenage-friendly sex education and sexual health guide
book, for both boys and girls, in one easy-to-use flip volume

Designed to help teens make healthy, positive choices based on the right information, this
guide explores the complex issues teenagers face around sexual exploration, sexual desire,
and making the right decisions about sex. Always providing honest and straightforward in-
formation, it talks about when to have sex, how sex happens, why you might or might not
have sex, what sex feels like, and other important things to know if and when a girl or guy
has, or is about to have, sex. But sex isn’t just about one person, and the material here goes
way past how to put on a condom to explore the tricky areas of pleasure and desire and
discuss what’s happening with relationships and friends, family, sexual identity, and cul-
tural influences. It takes teens through knowing themselves and their bodies, keeping safe,
protecting themselves, thinking through pregnancy, knowing about relationships, and tap-
ping into their personal power to make positive choices. With comments from other guys
and girls facing the same experiences, this book talks honestly and respectfully about the
hard questions and gives teens some answers they might need.

It’s Not Fair!

Parenting the Bright and Challenging Child

Gill Hines and Alison Baverstock
Foreword by Jacqueline Wilson

How parents of bright and challenging children between 8 and 12 can identify and handle
areas of concern, and prepare for the challenges of the teen years

“Very well written, full of anecdotes about bright and challenging children, with advice
about what to do, and what not to do. . . . Excellent suggestions in the later chapters for
preparing their children for the temptations of the teenage years.” —Bookbag

“There’s real understanding of young people and practical advice . . . offers the comfort of self-
recognition, and the assurance that others must be having the same experiences.”
—Times Educational Supplement onWhatever! A Down-to-Earth Guide to Parenting Teenagers

When parents find themselves answering yes to such questions asCan your child run rings around
you, and always have the last word? Is your child strong-willed and very independent for his
or her age? Do they refuse to take “no” for an answer?, it is likely that they have a “bright and
challenging” child. While there are many positives to parenting such children, it can also be
very demanding. This guide, designed specifically for the parents of young children who are
independent, risk taking, and hard to rein in, will explain why it is important to set and reinforce boundaries, and how to do
so. It also identifies the issues and risks that such children may face, and helps parents to prepare for them. Parents will also
learn how they and their child can discuss sensitive issues together, such as sex and drugs, and will learn how to help their child
to be more aware of the needs of others.

Gill Hinesis an education consultant and trainer who runs programs in schools aimed at parents of bright and challenging chil-
dren. Alison Baverstockis the author of Is There a Book in You?They are the coauthors of Whatever! A Down-to-Earth Guide
to Parenting Teenagers. Jacqueline Wilsonis an award-winning and bestselling children’s author whose titles includeGirls in
Love, Girls Out Late, and Girls Under Pressure.

Confessions of a Coffee Group Dropout

Navigating New Motherhood

Eleanor Black

A candid, engaging, and irreverent take on coming to terms with life as a new parent

Motherhood, for a first-timer, can be an overwhelming and even frightening experience, but
admitting this doesn’t seem to be something that’s ever done. The birth, as the author explains
in this memoir about the struggles of new parenthood, is the least of it. It’s what happens after
the birth that blows your mind. You’re meant to look like an expert from day one despite the
fact that the choices confronting first-time parents are mind-boggling—and whatever they de-
cide someone will tell them they’re wrong. She covers it all, from unsolicited advice offered by
complete strangers to competitive coffee group mothers, from baby music classes to expecta-
tions of parental perfection—all the pressures brought to bear on new parents. She found being
thrown into this universe completely bizarre, and upon talking to friends, she found she was-
n’t alone. She found plenty of other parents who were as baffled as her when it came to the ex-
pectations placed on modern parents, and this book is the result.

Eleanor Blackis an award-winning journalist and first-time mother. A former senior feature
writer at the New Zealand Herald, she is currently books editor for Nextand writes for a va-
riety of publications.
