Oh My Gods

By Alexandra Sheppard

Life as a half-mortal teenager should be epic. But, for Helen Thomas, it's tragic. She's just moved in with her dorky dad and self-absorbed older siblings - who happen to be the ancient Greek gods, living incognito in London! Between keeping her family's true identities secret, trying to impress her new friends, and meeting an actually cute boy, Helen's stress levels are higher than Mount Olympus.

Nothing But The Truth

By Dick Lehr

Inspired by the true story of a young man's false imprisonment for murder, this is a gripping novel about a daughter's fight for justice against the odds. In his first book for teenagers, Dick Lehr, a former reporter for the Boston Globe's famous Spotlight Team, has re-imagined a case he investigated to create a compelling story about a daughter determined to prove her father's innocence. On a hot summer night in Boston, a thirteen-year-old African-American girl became the innocent victim of gang-related gunfire.

Being Ben

By Jacqueline Roy

A quirky Racing Read featuring a British Jamaican family in a contemporary setting. Ben is a boy with a lively imagination and a tendency to worry. He's scared of lots of things - the new baby (it will have green hair and yellow eyes and poo and scream all the time), nasty stripes (they're everywhere) and the class bully (although it turns out he's scared of a few things himself...) When a neighbour's pet snake escapes a strange reversal occurs: suddenly everyone else is terrified, and Ben becomes the local hero, because there's one thing he's not afraid of: snakes!
