Jablonski, and award-winning illustrator Lynn Fellman to create a much-needed book about race and skin colour – for children.

It is difficult trying to talk in our family cos: a) Grandparents don't speak English at all b) Mum hardly speaks any English c) Me, Bonny and Simon hardly speak Chinese d) Dad speaks Chinese and good English - but doesn't like talking In other words, we all have to cobble together tiny bits of English and Chinese into a rubbish new language I call 'Chinglish'. It is very awkward. Jo Kwan is a teenager growing up in 1980s Coventry with her annoying little sister, too-cool older brother, a series of very unlucky pets and utterly bonkers parents. But unlike the other kids at her new school or her posh cousins, Jo lives above her parents' Chinese takeaway. And things can be tough - whether it's unruly customers or the snotty popular girls who bully Jo for being different. Even when she does find a BFF who actually likes Jo for herself, she still has to contend with her erratic dad's behaviour. All Jo dreams of is breaking free and forging a career as an artist. Told in diary entries and doodles, Jo's brilliantly funny observations about life, family and char siu make for a searingly honest portrayal of life on the other side of the takeaway counter.

The internationally bestselling love story from Nicola Yoon, author of Everything, Everything. Soon to be a major film starring Yara Shahidi and Charles Melton!

Natasha:

I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny.

Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him.

Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story.

Daniel:

I’ve always been the good son, the good student, living up to my parents’ high expectations.

Never the poet. Or the dreamer.

But when I see her, I forget about all that. Something about Natasha makes me think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store―for both of us.

The Universe:

Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true?
