My name is Lottie Biggs and in three weeks time, I will be fifteen years old. At school, most
people call me Lottie Not-Very-Biggs. I’ve never found this particularly funny . . . And this is
my book – it’s about important things like boys and shoes and polo-neck knickers and
rescuing giraffes and NOT fancying Gareth Stingecombe (even though he has manly thighs)
and hanging-out with your best friend having A BLATANTLY FUNNY TIME. It is definitely not
about sitting in wardrobes or having a mental disturbance of any kind! Painfully honest and
laugh-so-hard-you-forget-to-breathe funny. Lottie’s diary starts out as a creative writing
school project, but soon takes on a life of its own.

twin senses thrown in. Told in a non-linear narrative that flashes back and forth in time and
bit-by-bit revealing a secret past that even Hayley and Taylor don’t know about, each novel
tells a satisfying true crime inspired tale. A dedicated series website will include exciting
bonus extras. Envy, the debut book, centres on a teen bullying situation that ends in death.

Thomson, Jamie             Dark Lord
“Meet Dirk Lloyd, or Dark Lord as he prefers to call himself. He has fallen to Earth from the
Darklands and found himself trapped in the body of a thirteen year old boy. This is
stupendously inconvenient as he is desperate to find his way back and not many people tend
to take a teenage boy insisting he’s the all powerful Dark Lord very seriously. This is
hilarious, and is set to have us inferior puny humans laughing out loud. The language is quite
sophisticated but you couldn’t really expect anything less from a Lord. Dirk is witty and
offensive, the way he views our world, as if from the outside looking in, is particularly comical.
As he struggles with human relationships, emotions and morals it becomes difficult not to love
him.” Review from Askews website

Wignall, Kevin Blood 9781405258609                     Sep 2011          £6.99
“I do not remember being bitten. I wish I did, for then I would know the creature who did this to
me and I would have a purpose, to track him down and repay him for the poisoned gift he
gave me”. Back in the Thirteenth Century, Will was destined to be Earl of Mercia, although he
never lived to inherit his title. In the centuries that follow, Will has led a lonely life, learning to
deal with whatever the present day throws at him, always searching for answers but never
finding any. Until this time, when he awakens after a 20-year-slumber, hungry for the blood
that sustains his undeath, when it appears that he is finally getting a glimpse at why he exists.
He does indeed have a destiny, and an enemy, but revealing that fate will be a matter of
trust... This is the first book in a new series, The Mercian Trilogy. This vampire story is
much closer to Bram Stoker’s edgy and dangerous creation than to the world of Twilight. It
should definitely appeal to boys.

If you have a phobia of rats, do not read this review, and take care not to look at the front
cover of the book when you buy it for the boys who will lap up this gory and gruesome tale.
Sarah McGraw lives with her father and younger brother on the edge of town, beside a huge
garbage dump that her father helps manage. But it's growing out of control. As the piles of
refuse grow, so do the rats that frequent the dump. But not only are they growing - they're
mutating ... Turning against humans, they begin to venture outside of the dump, invading the
neighbouring houses through the drains, up into toilets and jacuzzis, harassing the
neighbourhood and massing for violent and often fatal attacks on the inhabitants. When one
of the dump workers is eaten alive by rats, Sarah's dad is called in to work urgently to try and
control the crisis - leaving Sarah and her little brother alone - and at the mercy of the rats ...
