            "Can an imaginary friend become real? Vincent Gum finds six-year-old Benjamin moments after an explosion and leads him through wrecked city streets to the children's shelter. Vincent's tough and smart. He can walk through walls and make a dead tree flower. But to the rest of the ...world he's invisible - non-existent. That's because, in his moment of need, Ben invented him. When Ben is befriended by a gang of streetwise orphans, Vincent begins to worry. What will happen to him if Ben decides he no longer needs an imaginary friend? Will he cease to exist?"--Publisher information.

Sent off on a military-style school camp to the wilds of Lake Waikaremoana, Matt again gets in trouble for something he didn't do, and is unjus...tly punished. Not allowed to join his school friends on their activities, he spends time alone down by the lake where he discovers a massive eel. Unfortunately, news gets out about the eel Matt has nicknamed Elsa, and the class bad-boy, Cameron, is determined to kill it. Matt is determined not to let him ... but then, following a night of torrential rain, catastrophe strikes the camp and Matt ends up saving Cam's life."--Publisher information.

Top of the list of crazies is Pop, her stingy grandfather, who whips up possum stews and turns chicken scraps into the worst school lunches ever. So why does Juanita... suddenly want to be her friend? Juanita's not her type, she has real sandwiches in her lunchbox, and does nice things like saving greyhounds and sticking up for people."
