June 2012 Book of the Month. A chilling story of perfect children, medically transformed! Newly arrived in a new town and in a new school it doesn’t take Henry long to discover that something is wrong. Very wrong. How can all the pupils be so clever? And how can they all be such super-athletes? Luckily, Henry meets Christian and Fox who are outsiders too. Teaming up with them and with the sports coach who has also worked out that something is not quite right, Henry sets out to discover exactly what is going on at the sinister Malcorp Research and Development Corporation. It’s a dangerous mission and Henry has to be super-quick to stay ahead of the sinister Mr Mallory and his henchmen.


The Adjusters by Andrew Taylor

A Stepford Kids-style thriller for the Alex Rider generation – sinister, shocking and impossible to put down.

Newton is the perfect town... Except newcomer Henry Ward isn't buying it. With a pair of misfit friends, he's determined to expose the dark secrets lurking behind Newton's bright facade. But asking questions about Newton and the corporation that owns it can be dangerous. The doctors in the sinister medical centre on the hill have a procedure called adjustment for kids who don't fit in... And Henry and his friends have just gone to the top of the waiting list.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
