            Caleb Clifford has earbuds, not real buds. And he prefers it that way. 1. They always give him what he wants to hear. 2. He can adjust the volume. 3. If things get tangled, it's relatively easy to straighten them out again ... Sixteen-year-old songwriter and aspiring social outca...st Caleb Clifford fills his world with music, but - like most things - keeps his songs to himself. That is until his little brother leaks Caleb's most personal track online; a track that's quite obviously about his secret crush. Having his innermost feelings (accompanied by a funky bassline) go viral is not Caleb's idea of a good time. But is this the end of everything, or the start? A hilarious and touching coming-of-age debut novel from ARIA award-winning triple j host Alex Dyson about family, friends, fame, and the importance of never leaving your computer unattended.

            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.

            Do you ever get that creepy feeling? ... Like there's something spooky hiding under your bed? ... Like a rumbling growl from a dark alley as you walk past? ... Like that shivering sensation at the back of your spine, as if someone you can't see... is watching you? Get ready to be... freaked out! Fifteen young editors, mentored by children's author Tony Wilson and publishing industry professionals, put together a spine-chilling collection of stories on the theme of 'creepy horror'. The collection includes twelve hair-raising tales and poems written by young Australian writers between the ages of 8 to 12, alongside an original contribution by children's author Oliver Phommavanh, that Andy Griffiths describes as A white knuckle rollercoaster ride of pure terror! Program Details Every year, a panel of fifteen young editors, aged 8 to 12, are assembled to take part in 100 Story Building's Early Harvest publishing program. They select the theme of the book, commission cover art, and illustrations, curate the collection and make all the creative decisions involved in putting the book together. Throughout the process, they are guided by publishing industry professionals - including authors, designers, artists, and marketing experts. This year, 100 Story Building facilitators and children's writer Tony Wilson mentored children from across Melbourne through school incursions on the intricacies of writing a truly creepy tale. One hundred and thirty of these young authors submitted finished stories for consideration. From these, the young editors selected the twelve best stories and rounded out the collection by commissioning Oliver Phommavanh to contribute his work. The Early Harvest program was launched in 2011. Since then, the associated publications have featured 116 young authors as well as Andy Griffiths, Terry Denton, Shaun Tan, Alice Pung, Sally Rippin, Maxine Beneba Clarke, Andrew McDonald, Davina Bell, and Morris Gleitzman.

            The much-anticipated finale to Amie Kaufman's epic middle-grade trilogy Though Anders and his friends have delayed an all-out war between the ice wolves and scorch dragons, their mission is far from over. With adults on both sides trying to track them down, they've sought refuge ...in Cloudhaven, a forbidden stronghold created by the first dragonsmiths. The ancient text covering Cloudhaven's walls could be the key to saving their home if only the young elementals could decipher it. To make matters worse, the city of Holbard is in ruins and its citizens are reeling. Food is running short. Many have been forced into bleak camps outside the city, causing friction between the humans and wolves who once protected them. To rebuild Vallen, Anders, Rayna and all their allies must find a way to unite humans, ice wolves and scorch dragons, before they lose their last chance. New York Times bestselling author Amie Kaufman delivers the thrilling second installment in this epic middle-grade fantasy series about a world where powerful magical shapeshifters are locked in a conflict that has spanned generations. PRAISE FOR SCORCH DRAGONS: 'I found a satisfying fantasy world like none I have read before - one in which dragons and wolves take human form and have magical powers. One of the strengths of this book is the exploration of the idea that truth is a matter of perspective - that there are two (or more) sides to every story. There is no clear enemy, the conflict arises from the tension between the dragons and the wolves, and the reader can empathise with both sides, even though many of the adults in the story cannot ... This is a great book for middle-grade readers 8-12.' - Reading Time PRAISE FOR ICE WOLVES: 'An engaging world and cliffhanger ending leave readers wanting more' - Kirkus, starred review 'Engaging to the end' - Books+Publishing 'you'll wind up on the edge of your seat, unable to put it down' - New York Times bestseller Meagan Spooner 'A thrilling, nonstop adventure'

            'Milou,' Lotta said softly. 'We need adoption papers to leave. And no one except that horrid merchant wants us.' 'Well then,' replied Milou with a grin. 'We'll just have to adopt ourselves.' In all the years that Elinora Gassbeek has been matron of the Little Tulip Orphanage, not... once have the Rules for Baby Abandonment been broken. Until the autumn of 1886, when five babies are left in outrageous circumstances- one in a tin toolbox, one in a coal bucket, one in a picnic hamper, one in a wheat sack, and finally, one in a coffin-shaped basket. Those babies were Lotta, Egg, Fenna, Sem and Milou; who were swiftly and firmly deemed 'the unadoptables'. Twelve years on the children still have each other - until the fateful night a most sinister gentleman appears and threatens to tear them apart. The gang decide to make a daring escape, fleeing the frozen canals of Amsterdam for an adventure packed with puppets and pirate ships, clock-makers and cruel villains - and with only a scrap of a clue to guide them to their mysterious new home . . .
