Middle-grade

Sophia and the Corner Park Clubhouse A sparklingly funny and heartfelt new middle-grade series, for fans of Gilmore Girls and Ann M. Martin’s iconic Baby-Sitters Club series. For Belle, it’s an empire. For Lola, it’s a canvas. For Maisie, it’s a refuge. For Sophia, it is home.

CONCEPT ONLY

Sophia and her lifelong best friends are reunited at their old favourite hangout – the Corner Park Clubhouse – after their first term at different high schools. But it soon becomes obvious that in spite of pinkie swears and promises, they’re drifting apart. The one thing keeping them together is the clubhouse, which holds special memories for each of them – and after what happened there last summer, it means more than anything to Sophia. So when they find out it’s going to be bulldozed, the girls set out in a race against time to save it – and their friendship – from demolition.

The Orchard Underground An explosive, suspenseful and utterly brilliant middle-grade mystery for fans of Louis Sachar’s Holes. Not-quite twelve-year-old Pri Kohli knows the town of Dunn’s Orchard better than anyone. After all, he was the first kid ever to live there. He knows its mysteries (none), its secrets (also none) and the best ways to have fun in it (climb a big tree and sit there). So why can’t he answer newcomer Attica Stone’s simple question: if the town’s called Dunn’s Orchard, where’s the orchard? As Pri and Attica go in search of forbidden fruit, they uncover stranger mysteries: a robot caterpillar, a mayor with a murky past, a Possibly Real Actual Boogeyman and a house made of doors in a haunted wood. But what will Pri and Attica do when they discover the biggest secret of all – that something truly magical is about to be destroyed, and the only way to save it could be by destroying the town itself?

‘Smart, mysterious and funny. This book will keep you guessing!’

Mat Larkin’s stunning debut is a big-hearted, wildly surprising and deliciously well-plotted mystery for readers aged 8+ about the joy of discovery, and digging just that little bit deeper to uncover the truth.
