Everything is Fine (and Other Lies I Tell Myself) – Cathy Brett
Things haven’t been going so well for fifteen-year-old Esther Armstrong. With her brother Max – her closest ally – absent, she’s forced to face everything alone, not least her parents’ heated arguments. As the summer holidays stretch endlessly ahead, she’s desperate for something, anything to divert her attention.
Then she finds some letters hidden in the walls of her family home, sent by a soldier to his sweetheart from the trenches of WWI. Esther is consumed by the mystery of these lovers – not very much older than herself – and what became of them. Perhaps in piecing together the jigsaw of someone else’s life, Esther can work out how to reassemble her own, ad how to make everything fine again...
This sounds a bit different to Cathy Brett’s previous novels and I’m really looking forward to it. Thanks Headline!
Follow Me Down – Tanya Byrne
First love. Last lie.
When Adamma Okomma has to leave her glossy high school in New York for a dusty English boarding school, she thinks it’s the end of the world – or the end of her social life, at least.
Then she meets the wicked-witted Scartlett Chiltern, who shows her all of Crofton’s College’s darkest corners and Adamma realises that there’s much more to her new school than tartan skirts and hockey sticks.
She and Scarlett become inseparable, but when they fall for the same guy; the battle times are firmly drawn.
Adamma gets the guy but loses her best friend. Then, when Scarlett runs away, Adamma finds herself caught up in something far more sinister than a messy love triangle. Adamma always knew that Scarlett had her secrets, but some secrets are too big to keep and this one will change all of their lives forever.
So. Excited. For. This. Thanks Headline!
Getting Over Garrett Delaney – Abby McDonald
Sadie has been hopelessly in love with her best friend, Garrett Delaney, for the past years – but he doesn’t even notice. When Garrett goes away for the summer, Sadie hopes that absence will make his heart grow fonder.
Instead, he rings to tell her he’s fallen in love – with someone else! Devastated, she embarks on a plan to get over Garrett Delaney once and for all.
This sounds adorable! Thanks Walker!
