  • 1.  CoverNo virgin
    Rating: ★★★★★★★★★★
    Reviewed by: JUDITH (S), MAUNGARAKI, LOWER HUTT, 25 Mar 2017
    A superbly-told story of a teenage girl betrayed by someone she thought was a special friend. In this cautionary tale Stacey's behaviour is clearly impulsive and risky, which is a little frustrating for the reader, but her character is quite believable, as are her actions later in the story. Hard to put down.

    Weird. In my opinion this didn't live up to the promise of the blurb, but for the right reader it may well be a big hit.

  • 3.  CoverCuckoo
    Rating: ★★★★★★★★★☆

    A child actor dumped from his role in a popular soap should just be able to get on with his life, right? For Jake it's a little more complicated, with no money, a stress-ridden dad and a severely autistic brother. A great read!

    Tim's life is already a train wreck, and a baby added to the mix is going to either make or break him. Although I found some aspects of the story a bit hard to relate to (a recovering alcoholic at age 17?) it's still a good read.

  • 5.  CoverBlythewood
    Rating: ★★★★★★★★★☆

    The story of a seemingly ordinary young girl who discovers she's anything but...

    Mystery, magic, mythology and treachery with a little romance thrown in.

  • 6.  CoverThis is the part where you laugh
    Rating: ★★★★★★★★★☆
    Reviewed by: JUDITH (S), MAUNGARAKI, LOWER HUTT, 25 Mar 2017
    Gritty and eye-opening story of a troubled teen who, despite having grown up in a highly dysfunctional situation, still has goals and ambitions. If you enjoy stories of people battling adversity, this is a great choice.

  • 7.  CoverSome assembly required : the not-so-secret life of a transgender teen
    Rating: ★★★★★★★★★★
    Reviewed by: JUDITH (S), MAUNGARAKI, LOWER HUTT, 14 Mar 2017
    The amazing story of someone who sensed from a very young age that they had the wrong body. This honest and matter-of-fact narrative details Arin's struggle to be identified as a boy, and the difficulties of transitioning, as well as deal with the emotional upheavals of adolescence.

  • 8.  CoverKid got shot
    Rating: ★★★★★★★★★★
    Reviewed by: JUDITH (S), MAUNGARAKI, LOWER HUTT, 14 Mar 2017
    A boy whose brilliant observation and deductive skills match those of the legendary Sherlock Holmes, Garvie spends most of his time hanging out with his dodgy mates and avoiding exams, when he isn't "helping" the long-suffering police with their inquiries. A quirky and interesting cast of characters, and a very complex story.

  • 9.  CoverThis is our story
    Rating: ★★★★★★★★★★
    Reviewed by: JUDITH (S), MAUNGARAKI, LOWER HUTT, 14 Mar 2017
    A hunting tragedy, four boys telling the same story about what happened, and one girl determined to find out who really pulled the trigger. In this fabulous story you really will wonder right up to the end who actually did it.

    Reviewed by: JUDITH (S), MAUNGARAKI, LOWER HUTT, 07 Mar 2017
    A story about the strong friendship between two very different girls - one from a smotheringly over-protective family, the other from a no-good family - and the lengths they will go to for each other.
