It starts with an 'oops'
a 'look out'
and a 'crash'
then in walks Father Giant
with his quivering moustache....
When Father Giant's favourite china elephant is smashed, he wants to know who the culprit is. It's not Olive and her brother, Grub, so who did it?
A suspenseful and spooky new series, perfect for fans of Goosebumps, from bestselling duo Ally Condie and Brendan Reichs. When a bullying incident sends twelve year-old Nico Holland over the edge of a cliff into the icy waters of Still Cove, where no one ever goes, friends Tyler and Ella - and even 'cool kid' Opal - rush to his rescue . . . only to discover an island hidden in the swirling mists below. Shrouded by dense trees and murky tides, the island appears uninhabited, although the kids can't quite shake the feeling that something about it is off. Their suspicions grow when they stumble upon an abandoned houseboat with an array of curiosities inside: odd-looking weapons, unnerving portraits, maps to places they've never heard of, and a glass jar containing something completely unidentifiable. As the group delves deeper into the unknown, their discoveries - and their lives - begin to intertwine in weird and spooky ways. Something ancient has awakened . . . and it knows their wishes and dreams - and their deepest secrets. Do they have what it takes to face the shadowy things that lurk within their own hearts?
Their families dead from the pandemic SitkaAZ13, known as "Pest," 15-year-old cheerleader Clare and 13-year-old chess club member Jem are thrown together. They realize that, if either of them wishes to reach adulthood, they must find a cure. A shadowy adult broadcasting on the radio to all orphaned children promises just that - to cure children once they grow into Pest, then to feed and care for them. Or does this adult have something else in mind? Against a hostile landscape of rotting cities and a countryside infected by corpses and roamed by voracious diseased survivors, Jem and Clare make their bid for life and, with their group of fellow childtravelers growing, embark on a journey to find the cure. But they are hampered by the knowledge that everything in this new world had become suspect - adults, alliances, trust, hope. But perhaps friendship has its own kind of healing power.

"Surreal, brainy, and totally captivating." --Booklist (starred review)
"Provocative and moving." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Hutchinson artfully blends the realistic and the surreal." --School Library Journal (starred review)
From the critically acclaimed author of We Are the Ants and At the Edge of the Universe comes a mind-bending, riveting novel about a teen who was born to a virgin mother and realizes she has the power to heal--but that power comes at a huge cost.
Sixteen-year-old Elena Mendoza is the product of a virgin birth.
This can be scientifically explained (it's called parthenogenesis), but what can't be explained is how Elena is able to heal Freddie, the girl she's had a crush on for years, from a gunshot wound in a Starbucks parking lot. Or why the boy who shot Freddie, David Combs, disappeared from the same parking lot minutes later after getting sucked up into the clouds. Other things that can't be explained are the talking girl on the front of a tampon box, or the reasons that David Combs shot Freddie in the first place.
As more unbelievable things occur, and Elena continues to perform miracles, the only remaining explanation is the least logical of all--that the world is actually coming to an end, and Elena is possibly the only one who can do something about it.
