Pet Akwaeke Emezi Pet is here to hunt a monster. Are you brave enough to look? There are no more monsters anymore, or so the children in the city of Lucille are taught. With doting parents and a best friend named Redemption, Jam has grown up with this lesson all her life. But when she meets Pet, a creature made of horns and colours and claws, who emerges from one of her mother’s paintings and a drop of Jam’s blood, she must reconsider what she’s been told. Pet has come to hunt a monster, and the shadow of something grim lurks in Redemption’s house. Jam must fight not only to protect her best friend, but also to uncover the truth, and the answer to the question – How do you save the world from monsters if no one will admit they exist? In her riveting and timely young adult debut, acclaimed novelist Akwaeke Emezi asks difficult questions about what choices a young person can make when the adults around them are in denial. 12

Highly anticipated conclusion to the epic Rebel of the Sands trilogy – a genre-busting Wild West meets Arabian Nights fantasy. Praise for the trilogy:

‘A winning bit of storytelling. She has circled a spot on the map and claimed it for her own.’ New York Times ‘A high-concept, and highly enjoyable, epic fantasy adventure.’ Guardian ALWYN HAMILTON was born in Toronto and spent her early years bouncing between Europe and Canada until her parents settled in France. She left France for Cambridge University to study History of Art at King’s College, focusing in on painting in the French Revolution. She then moved to London where she now lives and writes full-time. Rebel of the Sands was her first novel.

She has also written for Buzzfeed, appeared on BBC Radio 2, and spoken at festivals, conventions and conferences in countries around the world. She is a FrenchBritish hybrid who grew up in Cornwall, a place saturated with myth and fantasy.

She speaks English and French, and can hold a vague conversation, usually about food, in Greek.

The Curses Laure Eve

In Paris With You Clementine Beauvais

The true consequences of dark magic take their toll in this powerful and seductive sequel to The Graces.

Because their story didn’t end at the right time, in the right place, because they let their feelings go to waste, it was written, I think, that Eugene and Tatiana would find each other ten years later, one morning in winter, under terra firma, on the Meteor, Line 14 (magenta) of the Paris Metro.

Summer Grace has had enough of secrets, but sharing a house with someone who’s been resurrected from the dead isn’t something you want the neighbours to know about. As ex-best friend River wreaks havoc with her twisted spells, can the Graces ever escape the curses that have been tearing their family apart for generations?

Eugene and Tatiana could have fallen in love. If things had gone differently. But time has found them far apart, leading separate lives. Until they meet once more in Paris . . . A wonderful novel in free verse that will appeal to both teens and adults. 14
