              Surviving school with one eye open. Ross Maloy just wants to be a normal seventh grader. He does not want to lose his hair, or wear a weird hat, or deal with the kids at school who don't know what to say to 'the cancer kid'. But with a sudden and horrifying diagnosis of a rare ey...e cancer, blending in is off the table. Based on Rob Harrell's real-life experiences, and filled with his cartoons and illustrations, this very personal and poignant novel is an unforgettable, hilarious and uplifting story of survival, and of finding music, magic and laughter in all of life's weirdness. EARLY PRAISE FOR WINK: 'Wink is the story of a boy's survival that is both deeply personal and wildly funny. It's fun, it's important, and it's got songs! Rock on, Rob Harrell! Batpig forever!' - Max Brallier, New York Times bestselling author of Last Kids on Earth 'I loved Wink! Heartbreakingly funny, this book is proof that laughter is the best form of medicine. A smart, likable story that's full of heart.' - Meg Cabot, author of The Princess Diaries 'Wink has all the right elements: humour, heart, and a Batpig. A deeply personal and moving story, it will (pun alert) rock you to the core.' - Terri Libenson, award-winning comics creator and author of the bestselling Invisible Emmie 'With a cast of characters that feel both deeply human and fully seen, this book has shot onto my list of all-time favourite books. Simply superb!' - Ingrid Law, author of Newbery Honor Book Savvy 'Funny, moving, and ultimately triumphant, Wink is a powerful story of everyday resilience, and of the different types of family that unexpectedly sprout up in the wake of tragedy.' - M.A. Larson, author of Pennyroyal Academy

But when Isolde's boyfriend dumps her - for another dancer - she messes up the audition and goes fr...om focused to lost. Rising star of the Big-Air Snowboard scene, seventeen-year-old Taylor Hellemann, was on the fast track for the Winter Olympics - until a life-altering accident brings it all to a halt. Taylor and Isolde used to be best friends - before THAT FIGHT, 18 months ago. It's been radio silence ever since - until Taylor contacts Isolde to sympathise with her breakup. Isolde responds, to be polite. But what starts out as break-up themed Spotify playlists and shared stories of exes quickly becomes something more. And as Taylor and Isolde start to lean on each other, the distance between them begins to feel not so distant after all. But what will happen when they finally meet, for the first time in over three years? Will it feel like nothing has changed ... or maybe, everything has? A boy. A girl. A one-of-a-kind friendship. Cross-country convos and middle-of-the-night playlists. With big dreams come even bigger challenges ...

              Drawing on her own family history, this is a story from Jackie French about education in Colonial Australia - and how women once had to fight for their right to it. January 1901 Sharks circle the stranded ship as Hannah and her family head to a new home in the newly formed nation... of Australia. Hannah's father has a new post as the schoolmaster in a larger school in northern NSW, where the school's wealthy patron, a sugar planter called Mr Harris, will give the family a life of comfort and the best society. But secrets lurk in this subtropical paradise. From the moment Hannah's mother rebels against her husband's refusal to let Jamie, the Pacific Islander boy who rescues them from their shipwreck, into his school, the facade crumbles. Mr Harris's fortune is built on slavery and the whip. And the new Federal government's first law demands that all Pacific islanders - even those born in Australia - be deported. If Mr Harris learns of the secret school that Hannah's mother is running, it will mean ruin, violence, and possibly even death. Hannah and Jamie must fight for Jamie's right to stay in the land he loves, and for their rights to education and equality. Can the friendship and love of two young people win against such prejudice and power? Based on the lives of Jackie French's great-grandparents and grandmothers who taught - and fought - for equal education and the rights of all Australians, no matter what their background or the colour of the skin, this story shows us how the bravery and the battles of the past can give us courage for the challenges of today.
