This is a fabulous read and its inspiration is taken from Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey. The heroine has always craved excitement and now she has it having won an art scholarship where she can rub shoulders with a host of interesting people. Full of glamour, secrets and intrigue, this sharp yet humourous novel will take you on a rollercoaster ride of all manner of emotions. Rosie Rushton is one of the best at tackling teenage problems, writing about them and providing answers for them.
Snogging, nearly-snogging, other people’s snogs, make up disasters, embarrassing parents and friends – loyal and not... Fans of best-selling teenage tearaway Georgia Nicolson will be delighted by her latest hilarious diary which records all the highs and lows of being a teenager.
Selected by a distinguished independent panel of experts including our editorial expert, Julia Eccleshare, for Diverse Voices - 50 of the best Children's Books celebrating cultural diversity in the UK. Michael Rosen on a compelling favourite: "A book that dared to go where no one thought you could with young audiences because it raises tough stuff to do with race." It takes a brave author such as Malorie Blackman to consider a sequence of the like of Noughts and Crosses and to pull it off with utmost aplomb. Award-winning author Blackman has tackled the issues of racism and prejudice in a world set in an alternate historical reality. Although 11 year olds will take great joy and learn much from reading this first one in the sequence, adults will devour it with equal enthusiasm. The contrast of the two main protagonists makes the novel totally compelling and the writing style is both original and superbly paced. The plot unravels at the pace of a thriller and as a consequence it’s a book that is almost impossible to put down. Perfect for Reluctant Readers as well as keen readers.

Jess has just spent a perfect summer having at last become an ‘item’ with Fred. Feeling pretty cool about everything, she’s actually looking forward to going back to school and to all the fun things they’ll do together – especially perfecting a comedy routine for the school entertainment. But then Fred causually says he’s not sure he wants to be going out with her, and everything in Jess’s life begins to go wrong. Sue Limb has the perfect touch for this funny and painfully accurate take on teenage life. A fine sequel to Girl,15: Flirting for England and Girl Nearly 16: Absolute Torture.
