            While holidaying at his father's house, 12-year-old Jake explores the wild south coast of Wellington, with its high cliffs, biting winds, and its fierce seals. When Jake stumbles upon a perfectly preserved sealskin, hidden in a crevice at Red Rocks, he takes it home and, worried ...his father will disapprove, hides it under his bed. Jake meets Jim, an old man who lives in a shack on the beach, and his grand-daughter Jessie, a small girl with dark eyes and a pointy face, who speaks strangely and who frolics in the water without ever feeling the cold. And who is the red-haired woman who wanders barefoot around the beaches and the streets, peering into houses? Could she be looking for her skin, as Jessie believes, so she can return to the sea? Is Jake now in danger? Red Rocks takes the Celtic myth of the Selkies, or seal people, and transplants it into the New Zealand landscape, throwing an ordinary boy into an adventure tinged with magic. With its beautiful writing and eerie atmosphere, junior readers will be thrilled and moved by this captivating story.

            Exciting plot-driven book about a teenage competitive driver. Archie Barrington, fifteen, is the third generation of his family to drive karts competitively. He's good and this is the year he and his dad have decided he'll have a shot at the Challenge series of six races. If he c...omes out the winner over all then he wins the chance to race in Europe. However, he's not the only good driver after the prize. Craig is his main rival, and Craig's father is wealthy and prepared to spend whatever it takes to help his son win the Challenge. Archie doesn't let Craig worry him, but Silver Adams is another matter. She's come back into karting after a two year break and her ambition seems to be to drive her kart like a weapon of destruction to others on the track, Archie in particular. His life isn't the smoothest at home either, thanks to Dad's new girlfriend Erica who, in Archie's opinion, is ridiculously overprotective of her seven year old son Felix. Karting is the last thing in the world she intends for him to do. However, shy, reserved Felix is fascinated by the whole world of karts. Archie and Craig dice all year u first Archie wins at a Challenge meeting, but next time Craig does. Archie must win the sixth and last meeting if he's to win the series. All is going well until disaster strikes in the pre-final when he's pushed off the track and breaks an axle. That's it. Craig will go to Europe but he won't. Then Silver comes to the rescue unexpectedly and Archie is able to drive the race of his life.
