              A modern teen romance from a CBCA Notable author Fifteen-year-old Isolde Byrne has made ballet everything in the hopes of winning a place at the prestigious National Ballet School. 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 ... Told in Instagram DMs, texts, IM conversations, emails and Skype, this is Jaclyn Moriarty's Feeling Sorry for Celia for the present-day reader.

              Sweet sixteen and never been kissed - and that's the way Aurora Skye wants it to be. She's too busy finding Potential Princes (t) for her two best friends, counseling her sensitive New Age dad and dealing with the unexpected return of her long-absent mum. But always in the backgr...ound there's Hayden Paris, the boy next door, the bane of Aurora's life. Smart, funny, and always around to see her at her worst, he 'gets' her like no-one else ...and that's what makes him so infuriating. When Aurora and Hayden are coerced into the lead roles in the school production of Much Ado About Nothing, things can only get worse. How is Aurora going to save her first kiss for the secret admirer who wooed her with poetry and a spectacular bunch of flowers on Valentine's Day if she doesn't know who he is and she's obligated to lock lips with Hayden in the play's final dramatic clinch? From talented debut YA author Tara Eglington, this is a page-turning, funny and delicious romp of a book that both kissing and non-kissing teenage girls will adore.

              The course of true love never did run smoothly. For a girl who shares her name with a princess (a.k.a Aurora from Sleeping Beauty), Aurora Skye's life seem fathoms away from a fairytale. Sure, she's landed Hayden Paris, Potential Prince extraordinaire. And she got her wish -- one... first kiss with all the knee-trembling, butterfly-inducing gloriousness she'd hoped for -- but Aurora's learning that a kiss is just the beginning of a story. Instead of being the truly transcendent, utterly epic follow up it should be, her second attempt at kissing has literally landed Hayden Paris in the emergency room. If that's not mortifying enough, the whole school is now referring to her as 'Lethal Lips'. Meanwhile it's all systems go for her best friend Cassie - she and Potential Prince Scott are totally loved up and can't stop kissing. Jelena (Jefferson High's answer to Helen of Troy) has moved on from the heinous betrayal by Bad Boy Alex West and has unleashed her plan to rule the world by running for School Captain. Problem is Alex is running too and Jelena's pulling out all the stops to prevent him from stealing her rightful place as ruler of Jefferson High - including offering Aurora's Find a Prince/Princess Program as one of her campaign initiatives. How is Aurora going to prove her program is foolproof and help Jelena win the election when her matchmaking manoeuvres seem to be throwing all the wrong people together - including the NAD and the hippy-dippy Ms Deforest -- and she can't even convince Hayden to kiss her?
