Asking for it
(Hardback)
Louise O'Neill
 

When Emma attends a house party, she expects it to be just like any other. She'll drink, she'll dance, she'll have fun, and she will be the most beautiful girl there. She can have her pick of any of the boys, and that's just how she likes it. What Emma doesn't expect is to wake up the next morning on her front porch with no recollection of the events of the night before or how she got there. She doesn't expect her best friends to turn their backs on her. She doesn't expect the looks, the whispers, the malicious disgust-filled slurs thrown at her from everyone at school. She doesn't expect the photos - the explicit, degrading photos - that appear on Facebook. And, as she discovers what happened to her, the last thing Emma expects is for complete strangers to lay blame at her feet.

Asking For It is undeniably important and unbelievably powerful.

Half Bad
(Paperback)
Sally Green

In a world of witches, where White Witches - the good - hunt Black Witches - the bad, Nathan is the son of a White Witch and a Black Witch, and his very existence is repugnant. Unsure whether he is going to become a White Witch or a Black Witch, Nathan has been watched most of his life, called in by the White Witches Council for assesments to see which side he will fall. Deciding it's far too dangerous to leave a possible Black Witch at his home, he is now locked in a cage, his guardian an approved White Witch - because not only is Nathan a Half Code, he's also the son of Marcus, the deadliest Black Witch in England. But if Nathan doesn't escape and find his father to receive his three gifts on his 17th birthday, he could die. An intriguing and gripping book!

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.

(Paperback)

George
(Hardback)
Alex Gino
 

Ten-year-old George has always known she is a girl, despite the fact that she has a boy's body. She knows there are other people like her from using the internet, but she just doesn't know how to broach the subject with anyone. Her class are reading Charlotte's Web, and George really loves it, especially Charlotte, so when it comes to auditioning for a part in the school's production of the book, she knows she has to be Charlotte. But Ms. Udell, her teacher, tells her that she can't be Charlotte because she's a boy.

With George getting increasingly more upset with being treated as the boy she isn't, her best friend Kelly comes up with a brilliant idea, an idea that will change everything. George is undeniably one of the most incredible LGBTQ books I've read, and maybe one of the most important.

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.

Pom Pom Gets the Grumps
(Paperback)
Sophy Henn; Sophy Henn
 

I love Pom Pom Gets the Grumps. I can relate to the moody little panda who gets out of the wrong side of the bed. His day goes from bad to worse, until he ends up yelling at his friends who were only trying to cheer him up. But will he see the error of his ways? The illustrations are so expressive and the colours are gorgeous. A firm favourite in my house.

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!

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
(Paperback)
J. K. Rowling
 

If, like me, reading the Harry Potter heptalogy seven times over has left you with a hankering for further studies in the field of 'magizoology', then this is the book for you. This guide to creatures encountered in the Harry Potter books (Gnomes, Dragons and Grindylows) and some yet-to-be-met (Chizpurfles, Billywhigs and Murtlaps) also contains useful notes on history, classification, and care. The book comes inscribed with wry commentary from some of your favourite wizards, and all profits go to Comic Relief.

To Kill a Mockingbird
(Paperback)
Harper Lee
Recently and rightfully voted the best book of all time, brilliantly accessible to younger readers – I first read it aged 13 and loved it then read it again in my early twenties and found depths and meanings I just hadn’t grasped before. Devastatingly powerful. - Julia.
