    Reviewed by: JUDITH (S), MAUNGARAKI, LOWER HUTT, 09 May 2018
    A fun and exciting spy story where the hero doesn't get it right all the time. Set in an exclusive high school, and with a band of quirky characters, determining which are the good guys is tricky! A great read for both guys and girls.

    Rating: ★★★★★★★★★★
    Reviewed by: JUDITH (S), MAUNGARAKI, LOWER HUTT, 08 May 2018
    A fascinating take on how population control might work in a world where lifetimes can be extended again and again. Two reluctant teens selected for training as 'Scythes' - the people whose task it is to select those who will die and carry out the sentence - find themselves caught between those who glean thoughtfully and responsibly, and those for whom the job is a pleasure.

  • 6.  CoverWinner take all

    Reviewed by: JUDITH (S), MAUNGARAKI, LOWER HUTT, 08 May 2018
    Two ultra-competitive teens fall into an intense relationship in this story of friendships, relationships, parental expectations, and extreme rivalry. While it's sometimes hard to sympathise with the self-centred Nell, her erratic decision-making certainly creates some interesting moments.

    A group of kids take on a vigilante role by hacking into the school's new security system to expose bullies. When they are exposed, their intentions misconstrued, the tables are turned. Look out for familiar places as this story is set in Wellington!

  • 8.  CoverThe sidekicks
    Rating: ★★★★★★★★★★
    Reviewed by: JUDITH (S), MAUNGARAKI, LOWER HUTT, 04 May 2018
    A really good read about three very different guys with nothing in common apart from their mutual friend Isaac. Should have great appeal for boys aged 15 and up, although girls may well enjoy it too.

  • 9.  CoverMissing
    Rating: ★★★★★★★★★★
    Reviewed by: JUDITH (S), MAUNGARAKI, LOWER HUTT, 04 May 2018
    A fascinating and chilling story set in a poverty-stricken town that young people can't wait to escape. Often disturbing, with main character Winter living in a trailer park with her violent and unpredictable father, and some creepy happenings, this story is an eye-opener.

    Rating: ★★★★★★★★★☆
    Reviewed by: JUDITH (S), MAUNGARAKI, LOWER HUTT, 26 Apr 2018
    A poignant look at a teen affected by mental illness and her difficulty in maintaining normal friendships.
