              No Place for an Octopus is a sweet and sensory journey about an unusual friendship between a boy and an octopus. After discovering an octopus in the rock pools at the beach, the boy imagines all of the adventures they could share if he took the octopus home. His realisation that ...the octopus may be happier where he currently is - in the rock pools - uncovers a deeper conservation message about how animals are best left in their natural environment.

              A haunting dystopian novel in the vein of John Marsden from a brand new voice in Australian YA literature. For Fin, it's just like any other day - racing for the school bus, bluffing his way through class and trying to remain cool in front of the most sophisticated girl in his un...iverse. Only it's not like any other day because, on the other side of the world, nuclear missiles are being detonated. When Fin wakes up the next morning, it's dark, bitterly cold and snow is falling. There's no internet, no phone, no TV, no power and no parents. Nothing Fin's learnt in school could have prepared him for this. With his parents missing and dwindling food and water supplies, Fin and his younger brother, Max, must find a way to survive in a nuclear winter ... all on their own. When things are at their most desperate, where can you go for help?

              A compulsively readable novel from the acclaimed author of The Sky So Heavy. The worst thing that could happen would be for my life to go back to how it was before Katie died. Hannah's world has imploded, all thanks to her older sister Katie. Her mum is depressed, her dad's injur...ed and she has to go to compulsory therapy sessions. Hannah should feel terrible but for the first time in ages, she feels a glimmer of hope and isn't afraid anymore. Is it because the elusive Josh is taking an interest in her? Or does it run deeper than that? In a family torn apart by guilt, one girl's struggle to come to terms with years of harassment shows how deep previous scars can run. The Protected is an honest and searing portrayal of loss and grief that conveys the repercussions of bullying to the modern-day teenager.

The intake of breath before the flood.Sam has always had things going on in his head that no one else understands, even his mum. And now she's dead, it's worse than ever. With nothing but his skateboard and a few belongings in a garbage bag, Sam goes to live with the strangers his mum cut ties with seven years ago: Aunty Lorraine and his cousins Shane and Minty. Despite the suspicion and hostility emanating from their fibro shack, Sam reverts to his childhood habit of following Minty around and is soon surfing with Minty to cut through the static fuzz in his head. But as the days slowly meld into one another, and ghosts from the past reappear, Sam has to make the ultimate decision ... will he sink or will he swim.
