            Can you be yourself in a one-size-fits-all world? Lori Palmer is the new girl at Bay Water High, where students prize glossy hair, beach bodies, and school spirit above all else. She misses her old school-where her talent as an artist carried more weight than she does-and longs f...or her old family life, before her parents got divorced and her mum reinvented herself. Lori decides that the only way to survive the rest of the year is to blend into the background. But her plans go awry when she discovers that the most popular (and hottest) guy at Bay Water High, Jake, is a volunteer at her brother's school. When her brother befriends Jake's sister, Lori is suddenly thrust into his unfamiliar and exhilarating world of water polo, parties, and stargazing. But with her relationship with her mother deteriorating, old anxieties resurface and Lori finds a new artistic release that unknowingly ignites a powerful movement. When the authorities start asking questions, Lori realises that finding her voice might have gotten her into a world of trouble...but sometimes standing up for what you believe in is as important as standing up for yourself.

            Celebrate the beauty and strength of solitude with this poetic observation of the animal kingdom and those who move through it on their very own. That silvery cloud swimming in the sea is actually a school of fish. That splash and crash is a pod of whales, sounding. Behold, a fev...er of stingrays gliding by. But what do you call a group of octopuses? A tangle of octopuses? A chandelier of octopuses? A multipus of octopuses? No, octopuses prefer to be alone. The octopus is a solitary animal. This lyrical, nonfiction text honors animals who live in solitude, in contrast to others who live in groups. Against a backdrop of the specific names of various animal tribes (a parade of elephants, a tower of giraffes, a dazzle of zebras), Stein shines a spotlight on those animals who go through life on their own. With nature at his back, Stein invites readers to draw strength and comfort from the behaviors of fellow animals. Perfect for children who are introverted or tend to be alone, and their parents...as well as all children, who will be encouraged to respect the "natural" choices of their peers.

You can't see it, bu...t this little boy is part mischievous monkey, part curious llama, and part chameleon, hiding from the world. Sometimes it feels like there's not enough room for our jumbling feelings, but the zoo inside all of us makes us who we are - reaching out to the world from the part you can't see.

Claire Hennessy, Irish Times 'The friendships in Gre...en's novels are stirring and powerful.' The New York Times ---------- 'It's quite rare to find someone who sees the same world you see.'

So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett's son, Davis. ------ Aza is trying. She is trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, a good student, and maybe even a good detective, while also living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts. ------ In his long-awaited return, John Green, the acclaimed, award-winning author of Looking for Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars, shares Aza's story with shattering, unflinching clarity in this brilliant novel of mental health, love, resilience, and the power of lifelong friendship.
