              Sometimes, at night, the dirt outside turns into a beautiful ocean. As red as the sun and as deep as the sky. I lie in my bed, Queeny's feet pushing up against my cheek, and listen to the waves lapping at the tent. Subhi is a refugee. Born in an Australian permanent detention cen...tre after his mother fled the violence of a distant homeland, life behind the fences is all he has ever known. But as he grows, his imagination gets bigger too, until it is bursting at the limits of his world. The night sea brings him gifts, the faraway whales sing to him, and the birds tell their stories. The most vivid story of all, however, is the one that arrives one night in the form of Jimmie, a scruffy, impatient girl who appears from the other side of the wires, and brings a notebook written by the mother she lost. Unable to read it, she relies on Subhi to unravel her own family's love songs and tragedies. Subhi and Jimmie might both find a way to freedom, as their tales unfold. But not until each of them has been braver than ever before.

              My heart is less than 1% of my body, it weighs hardly anything; it's only a tiny piece of me, yet it's the part Helen finds most interesting. . .Once it was inside her body, a tiny piece of the son she gave birth to. Now her boy is gone and his heart is keeping me alive. Born wit...h a heart defect, Vivienne Clark's life was saved by a transplant. Now a journalist, she doesn't allow herself to think about the donor, the boy who died so she could live; she can't bear to. Then she meets his mother, Helen, who wants something in return for Vivi's second-heart heart: her help to find all the other people who have tiny pieces of her son. She needs to meet them, to speak to them, in order to make sense of her own loss - to be sure that they deserve the precious gifts they were given. Reluctantly drawn into Helen's mission, Vivi agrees to trace the other recipients. One by one she brings together a small group of strangers, united by a single experience. As their lives begin to intertwine - growing close, becoming friends, enemies, even lovers - Vivi finds herself at the centre of a new kind of family, a tiny little piece of a whole. And through the fresh joys, and deep sadness, which all their stories bring, Vivi discovers that she might just be braver than she ever imagined...

              Miss Kaye works at The Institute. A place for the damaged, the dangerous, the not-quite rights. Everyone had different strategies to deal with those who lived there. Some barked orders. Some negotiated tirelessly. Miss Kaye found that simply being herself was mostly the right thi...ng to do. She would try not to smile, but her eyes did. Susie was seven, and already she knew she'd had her fill of character building. She'd lie between her Holly Hobby sheets thinking how slowly birthdays come around, but how quickly change happens. One minute her Dad was saying that the family needed to move back to the city and then, Shazam, they were there. Her mum didn't move to the new house with them. And she hated going to her mother's flat. She never knew who her mum would be. Or who would be there. When their paths connect, Miss Kaye and Susie will know that character building is often code for trauma and surviving requires patience. An unforgettable story of loneliness, isolation and finding you way. Heart-wrenching, wise and wryly funny, this novel will make you kinder to those who are lost.

              Morrigan Crow is cursed. Born on an unlucky day, she is blamed for all local misfortunes, from hailstorms to heart attacks - and, worst of all, the curse means that Morrigan is doomed to die at midnight on Eventide. But as Morrigan awaits her fate, a strange and remarkable man na...med Jupiter North appears. Chased by black-smoke hounds and shadowy hunters on horseback, he whisks her away into the safety of a secret, magical city called Nevermoor. It's there that Morrigan discovers Jupiter has chosen her to contend for a place in the city's most prestigious organisation: the Wundrous Society. In order to join, she must compete in four difficult and dangerous trials against hundreds of other children, each boasting an extraordinary talent that sets them apart. Except for Morrigan, who doesn't seem to have any special talent at all. To stay in the safety of Nevermoor for good, Morrigan will need to find a way to pass the tests - or she'll have to leave the city to confront her deadly fate.
