Eleanor is the new girl in town, and with her chaotic family life, her mismatched clothes and unruly red hair, she couldn’t stick out more if she tried. Park is the boy at the back of the bus. Black T-shirts, headphones, head in a book – he thinks he’s made himself invisible. But not to Eleanor… Never to Eleanor. Slowly, steadily, through late-night conversations and an ever-growing stack of mix tapes, Eleanor and Park fall for each other. They fall in love the way you do for the first time, when you’re young, and you feel as if you have nothing and everything to lose.
Joanne’s survived one challenge – technically – but now she’s got a whole new set of problems. After being accused of murder and chased around the country – and killed – by a team charged with hunting down rogue Wardens, Joanne’s human life is over. Reborn into Djinnhood, she has to master her enhanced powers whilst trying to avoid being ‘claimed’ by a human. With the help of a hot supernatural lover, things are looking bright – until they go wrong. There’s trouble brewing, and it’s not confined to River City… or to the Wardens. No, this trouble could kill every Djinn on the planet – and unleash a storm that could send humanity to join them. Armed with her keen fashion sense, Monolo Blahniks, and a really fast car, Joanne prepares to do battle with the enemy. Just one problem… It may be herself.
The Future of Us by Jay Asher & Carolyn Mackler:
It’s 1996 and less than half of all high school students have ever used the Internet. Facebook will not be invented for another eight years. Josh and Emma have been neighbours their whole lives. They’ve been best friends almost as long – at least they were up until last November, when everything changed. Things have been awkward ever since, but when Josh’s family gets a free AOL CD in the mail, his mum makes him bring it over so that Emma can install it on her new computer. When the two friends log on, they discover their profiles on Facebook. And they’re looking at themselves fifteen years in the future. Everyone wonders what their destiny will be. Josh and Emma are about to find out.
