The Last Summer of Us
(Paperback)

Limpet has just had to bury her mum. She is so full of grief and guilt, and her dad is having a hard time coping, so when her best friend Steffan suggests she go on road trip with him and their other friend Jared, she jumps at the chance to get away from it all for a while. What follows are several days of highs and lows, laughs and sadness, and the realisation of how important these two guys are to her. But things are changing. Not only has her mum died, but Steffan will soon be leaving. And underneath it all there are things no-one is saying, secrets that if brought out from hiding could destroy the one thing keeping Limpet going right now; their friendship. The Last Summer of Us is a beautiful story of grief, friendship and hope.

I Was Here
(Paperback)
Gayle Forman
 

Cody is still grieving over the death of her best friend Meg, who took her own life. Her grief takes the form of guilt and anger; Meg had moved away for college, and so Cody wasn't around as much to see the signs. She didn't know anything was wrong with Meg, and wasn't there to help her. When she goes to Meg's house to collect her things, she comes into possession of her laptop. Not only have months of sent and received email been wiped, but there's an encrypted file in the trash. With the help of one of her house mates, Cody starts to dig deeper into what Meg was trying to hide, hoping to find reasons for Meg's death.

A beautifully moving story of grief and friendship.

Me Being Me is Exactly as Insane as...
(Paperback)
Todd Hasak-Lowy
 

Darren isn't doing so great. His parents are divorced, his brother has left for college, and his best friend has moved away. Dealing with the divorce has been hard, but he doesn't really have anyone to talk to. And then one morning, his dad drops a bombshell on him; he's gay. Darren doesn't know how to deal with this sudden declaration, or how to work out what it means. Not being able to cope with all that's going on in his head, or with having to spend a several hour journey with his dad later to visit his brother, he decides to skip school and visit his brother early. But Zoey, a quiet and seemingly strange girl from school Darren has always had a thing for, adds further complications; she turns up mid-journey, and spends the day with him. And then disappears. Fantastic book!

Denton Little's Death Date
(Paperback)
Lance Rubin
 

In Denton's world, everyone knows their deathdate, the date they will die. Due to some scientific discoveries, doctors can now determine the date of your death using blood and hair from when you are born.

For Denton, his deathdate is tomorrow. It hasn't really bothered him too much that he will die early, but once his deathdate is imminent, his life is turned on it's head. Experiencing a lot of firsts, a lot of confusion, and a fair dose of teenage angst, Denton is now wishing he had more time. But when a strange purple splotch appears of his thigh and starts to spread, he knows his time is coming. If he hadn't enough to worry about, a strange man appears at his funeral, telling him he knew his dead mother, and he should trust no-one. With Denton's death just around the corner, what could he possibly have to be wary about? Amazing debut!

Gone
(Paperback)
Michael Grant
So you're sitting in class daydreaming as usual when the teacher disappears. At first you think it's a trick but then you realise that EVERYONE over the age of 15 is GONE. What I love most about Gone is that you're not exactly sure what it is. Part Golding's Lord of the Flies, where the initial euphoria of no rules gives way to a savage dog eat dog way of life and part Lovecraftian horror where an ancient evil is controlling events to who knows what ends. The characters are well defined, being reluctant heroes with flaws that make them all too believably human, or at least part-human. Gone is a fast-paced, action-packed read which will make you hunger for more. - Sam

Angel
(Paperback)
L. A. Weatherly
When I began reading this book I expected it to be Twilight with angels. I could not have been more wrong, because it is even better. Weatherly's incredibly intelligent writing is fast paced, and cleverly chilling in how easily the sense of serenity and peace associated with angels is turned into something sinister, and through the use of fanaticism of faith, the author builds a sense of intense paranoia akin to sci-fi classics Invasion of the Body Snatchers and The Stepford Wives. Unlike other books in the genre, the relationship between Alex, a teen soldier in a secret war, and Willow a girl with supernatural gifts, is one of equals. Both are strong individuals used to taking care of themselves, but are stronger together when facing their enemies; their relationship also has the refreshing take of Alex and Willow being teens on the run, and because they are in the situation of only having each other to trust and rely on, it made their growing feelings for one another all the more plausible. This is not just a love story, it is also about trust, and belief in what we class good or bad. I thoroughly enjoyed Angel and cannot recommend this novel enough. I am seriously looking forward to the next instalments in this trilogy. - Neil

The Iron Witch
(Paperback)
Karen Mahoney
Following great success, with her short stories featured in young adult anthologies Eternal Kiss and Kiss Me Deadly, The Iron Witch is Karen Mahoney's debut novel. And what a debut - this novel is amazing! It explores areas of paranormal storytelling that are both familiar and different, and like an alchemist from her own story, she mixes these elements together and creates a brilliantly realised, and different world. The lead character Donna Underwood is strong, feisty and, unlike many female characters, ready to stand up and fight for herself, and the ones she loves, rather than wait around for a guy to save her. With its mix of fairies, alchemy, love and adventure, Iron Witch is an increadibly enjoyable read that will appeal to veteran readers of the genre, and would be a brilliant first read for those wanting to dip a toe in the ocean of Young Adult Paranormal. I cannot wait for the next instalments in this trilogy. - Neil
