    Rating: ★★★★★★★★★☆
    Reviewed by: JUDITH (S), MAUNGARAKI, LOWER HUTT, 21 Aug 2017
    In the wake of a shooting incident at the local high school, the story follows the relationships of a group of friends leading up to the tragic event. This story is disturbing but highly readable.

  • 2.  CoverSummer of Sloane
    Rating: ★★★★★★★★★☆
    Reviewed by: JUDITH (S), MAUNGARAKI, LOWER HUTT, 10 Aug 2017
    Reeling from the betrayal of her best friend and her boyfriend, Sloane spends the summer in Hawaii, blithely ignoring a barrage of messages from them both. Although I found Sloane's self-absorption a little tedious, her life in Hawaii is highly enviable! A solid novel with themes of betrayal, romance, family breakups and growing up in general.

    The people known as Subpars spend their lives mining a highly sought-after element in extremely hazardous conditions, in the hope of one day earning entry to the City. This enthralling tale follows Orion and her companions as they uncover secrets they were never intended to find out about. A great read for those who enjoy stories about surviving against the odds.

  • 4.  CoverLast seen leaving
    Rating: ★★★★★★★★★★
    Reviewed by: JUDITH (S), MAUNGARAKI, LOWER HUTT, 10 Aug 2017
    When his girlfriend January goes missing, Flynn is reluctant to tell the police everything that happened the last time he saw her, because that would raise questions he's not ready to answer, even to himself. A good story that keeps the reader guessing.

  • 5.  CoverFlying
    Rating: ★★★★★★★★★★

    An exceptionally good story about a sort-of-ordinary teen who turns out to be anything but!

    Men in Black meets Buffy....

  • 6.  CoverTease
    Rating: ★★★★★★★★★☆
    Reviewed by: JUDITH (S), MAUNGARAKI, LOWER HUTT, 04 Aug 2017
    This story highlights how easily young people can be drawn into cyber-bullying. The main character is shocking in her lack of conscience when it comes to her own part in the bullying and its inevitable result. A disturbing yet very thought-provoking read for ages 14+.

  • 7.  CoverBreak my heart 1,000 times
    Rating: ★★★★★★★★★☆
    Reviewed by: JUDITH (S), MAUNGARAKI, LOWER HUTT, 04 Aug 2017
    In this paranormal thriller, an unknown Event wiped out a huge number of people in the city, marking the start of a time when ghosts appear at random for all to see. While the reader can see where the plot is going from quite early on it doesn't detract from the sense of menace, and this will be enjoyed by both teen and adult readers.

  • 8.  CoverThis adventure ends
    Rating: ★★★★★★★★★☆
    Reviewed by: JUDITH (S), MAUNGARAKI, LOWER HUTT, 25 Jul 2017
    A great read for girls of maybe 13+ who enjoy stories about young people with a little romance. Characters and situations are sometimes pretty intense and over the top, which is often seen in US high school-based fiction, but still a very interesting story..

  • 9.  CoverThe other F-word : a novel
    Rating: ★★★★★★★★★☆
    Reviewed by: JUDITH (S), MAUNGARAKI, LOWER HUTT, 20 Jul 2017
    The unusual premise for this novel is the pulling-together of a group of unsuspecting half-siblings resulting from in-vitro fertilisation by an anonymous sperm donor! With the different family circumstances of the birth mothers, this makes for an interesting read as the semi-siblings get to know one another.

  • 10.  CoverDraw the line
    Rating: ★★★★★★★★☆☆
    Reviewed by: JUDITH (S), MAUNGARAKI, LOWER HUTT, 20 Jul 2017
    This novel about being a gay teen in a predominantly red-neck community is peopled with some interesting characters and makes for a good read. Although some of the comic strips did a decent job of telling their part of the story, on the whole I found the illustrations themselves fairly lacklustre.
